Experience
Experience:

I have vast experience with both local and expatriate students (Korean & Japanese) and have been working in education for the past 12 years in a variety of different educational settings such as Lorna Whiston Language Centre, after a corporate stint in Singapore and Malaysia. I have a particular interest in Language and Literature and graduated top of my cohort with a Master of Education with a CGPA of 3.7/4.0. I also have a degree in Journalism. Currently, I also serve as a member of a university’s Advisory Board representing the Faculty of Education.I have taught students from a variety of international schools, building their confidence, and preparing them for IGCSE Primary and Secondary IGCSE Checkpoint examinations as well as delivering classes in English Literature, Communicative and Business English to adult learners. The first lesson will be an assessment of where you/your child is at according to the 4 strands of language learning: Speaking, listening, reading and writing. We will then work out the schedule based on the learning objectives. As this is a private tutoring session, there will be opportunities to customize the lessons according to students' abilities and learning objectives. For example, an 'express' student would have the opportunity to take on more challenging work and would not only be restricted to learning at their class/age level. Similarly, students who require additional help would require more scaffolding and differentiation to learn comfortably at their pace and current abilities. I can help with that. Let's have a chat!

Approach
Approach:

I am a strong proponent of lifelong learning and believe that students have different learning abilities, and an effective educator would be able to identify and bridge the gap in learning. English is a beautiful and expressive language and being able to communicate and express your thoughts and opinions succinctly gives one an edge be it in academics or the workplace. My tutoring approach is constructivist in nature and encompasses a broad variety of skills including creativity, critical thinking, digital and language competency to meet the challenges of the 21st century. I subscribe to quality resources for resources and provide personalised yearly reports as feedback on your/your child's learning trajectory.  Learning requires the consistency and time commitment both from the parents, student and teacher. Do not engage me if you're going to book my time and cancel half of those classes and expect results. Testimonials available upon request.

Although she comes across as strict initially, she is quite relatable. She gives me IGCSE exam papers to practice on, so I know what to expect. She also asks me about my day and is generally very funny. She understands terms like #slay and #Yes. Very good quality, top 10/10 teacher, and many thanks.

She’s very passionate about her job. She’s also prepares the materials needed for her students on specific chapters and will go in depth to explain certain parts of the question that students may find difficult. Therefore for my finals, I got an A for my English first language ( IGCSE ). If you’re looking for someone who’s experienced and patient I wholeheartedly 100% recommend Ms Khoo.

I have been a student of Ms Khoo throughout my primary and secondary days, where her guidance has led me to a high level of English fluency. I had stopped tuition for a while but right after I have picked it up again, Ms Khoo has helped me develop more confidence in essay writing in a short time -- on top of picking up strengths and building up upon them, she also provides criticism and advice in a positive way that gives students the motivation and initiative to continuously improve. Whether you are studying with Ms Khoo for the long-term or the short-term, get ready to see your English skills level up!

Hi Lauren. thank you for the wonderful business english lessons for my staff which you have performed par excellance. My staff enjoyed themselves and I have seen vast improvement in their written and verbal communications under your tutorship.

I didn’t like reading or just learning in general but when I first met Miss Khoo she effectively captured my interested in the English language. So far she’s has taught me English and literature for 6 years and introduced to me Percy Jackson books and classics. I’m attending university soon and these memories will always stay with me.

She has an incredible gift for teaching. She is a dedicated tutor helping me to improve my language skill daily. Her teaching skills and knowledge is commendable. I am progressively achieving my career goals because of her. I was an executive when I met her and now I am leading a department in a reputable company. Her passion and dedication are beyond words!

She's really hands-on and cares about her students. Witnessed this first hand. Puts the extra effort by writing student evaluations twice a year for those taking a year's worth of classes. I also appreciate the consistency with classes, very rarely does she cancel scheduled classes. A true professional and a proper teacher that's leagues ahead of the usual disengaged tuition teachers that are pretty much going thru the motions of teaching a child.

I'm so happy to have studied and improved in my English communication and writing skills with Mrs Tay. She simplifies difficult concepts and makes it relatable.
