MBA

Experience

I graduated with second upper class in BSc in Business in 2010. I also completed MBA in UNITAR International University with CGPA of 3.88 in 2016 and ACCA Professional Qualification in 2020.   During my university studies, I was working as a part time tutor for around 4 years. I was handling BM, BI and Maths tuition classes for Standard 4 till Form 3. I am also a certified TESOL (English) teacher. Subsequently after graduation, I started my working life in commerce and banking industry while teaching tuition part time for many years. Currently I am full time lecturer in one of the tertiary colleges in Penang.   Overall I have more than 8 years of teaching tuition experience in English, Maths, Add Maths and Economics for secondary schools (SPM, IGCSE) and pre-university levels (STPM).

Tutoring Approach

My aim as a tutor is to create in my students a deep understanding and confidence in answering exam questions and  being able to tackle new and unfamiliar problems.   My philosophy is based on the idea that learning happens in an environment of mutual respect in which the student is encouraged to think and make new connections for themselves.  My experience has been that one-to-one personal tuition has a unique value to students because of the ability to resolve the students’ personal barriers to learning in a way that lays the foundations for a deep and lasting understanding of the subject. My approach varies depending on the student’s needs and learning style. However my teaching philosophy is based on encouraging students to think for themselves, using real-world exampleswherever possible. I start from topics the students are comfortable with and move gradually towards more complex areas as their confidence builds. I use questions and examples to check understanding continually.  I don’t lecture to students or ask them to memorise things.  Nor do I do the students’ homework for them! I usually focus on exam-style or past paper questions in order to check, practice and perfect the student’s understanding and technique. I also give a lot of emphasis to some of the less obvious but vital skills such as essay structure and technique, logical thought, and the effective use of numbers and graphs.

His teaching was awesome. He was able to explain Economic concepts and calculation in much simpler ways. It has helped me a lot in Macroeconomics. He is able to explain the concept well together with worked examples so that I can understand and do better. I really would like to thank him for teaching me.

Masters Of Informatics , Bachelor's Degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering

Experience

I have been teaching SPM and IGCSE level Physics, Science and Maths for the past 6 years. My students have since graduated from school and are in the working arena, as well as pursuing their tertiary education in colleges. My years of experience working in the education and electronics industry has enabled me to conduct the following lectures with target audiences ranging from Secondary students, to students pursuing their diploma as well as to corporate clients. These subjects include Introduction to Raspberry Pi Programming, Physics for SPM, Mathematics for SPM, Physics for IGCSE, Mathemathics for IGCSE, Digital Electronics Fundamentals, Fundamentals of Arduino programming as well as C Program fundamentals.

Tutoring Approach

For Secondary school  students, I regularly use simple analogies to describe concepts to my students helping them to understand those concepts rather than memorizing them. I encourage a two-way interaction with my students in order to foster a critical thinking mindset. I also will converse in any language (English, Bahasa Melayu, Hokkien) that is prefered by the student to teach them effectively.  As for the Diploma/Foundation/A-level students, I will often share valuable insights and best known methods from the industry to better equip students at the university level to better prepare themselves for the working world.

There will be a small test for you after teaching one chapter to test our understanding and strengthen our skills as well. A great learning experience with Ms Jophy Tan. Join her now!👍👍👍👍

Tarshini

Before having tuition, I had no interest at all in Accounting. Through my school's friend, I got to know Ms Jophy. I requested for a free trial class from her. And within 1 month, I started to understand Debit and Credit and some theories through mnemonics that she taught me. I love the tuition class and enjoyed the lesson. I got an A in the first exam I had taken after tuition and this boosted my interest in accounting even more! After three months, I decided to have tuition with Ms Jophy in Mathematics and Additional Mathematics. She prepared her own colored notes for me.

Min Ning Boo

Ms Jophy was a very nice tutor. She took the time to evaluate the needed for my upcoming exam. I have started Accounting from a very basic understanding. Ms Jophy quickly adapts the level to meet me, while at the same time demands my full focus and intensity to learn as much as possible during the lessons. Fantastic so far. Would recommend to anyone.

Bachelor Honours Degree (Biotechnology, 2011-2014) - UTAR; PhD Degree (Medical Entomology, 2015-present) - UNIMAS

Experience

I realised from my previous tutoring experiences that I am a tutor who rather emphasizes on understanding a particular concept than memorising it. Biology, contrary to popular belief among Malaysian, I believe is a subject which needs to be understood instead of memorised. It is my pleasure to aid students in grasping the main principles of the subjects I teach.

Tutoring Approach

Messages will be conveyed through mind maps and diagrams during Biology lessons. Each chapter will always start with an overview so that students might grasp the 'floorplan' of that chapter. When I go into the details, students will be guided to relate different parts of mind maps/diagram given during the class. Analogies on the other hand will be used to aid in understanding Mathematic. Once the students understand the concept, they will be guided to solve various Mathematical problems. For Mathematics, I believe in the saying 'Practice Makes Perfect'. All in all, my lessons are not only fun- and understanding-oriented. I like to trigger the student's mind to think critically so that they could answer questions asked in different ways during exams.

Reviews

Jeannie Teo

As to what he said in his introduction, he really emphasizes on understanding instead of memorising. I feel that it indeed is a better way to study a subject instead of always memorising it. I like how he is always very patient when his students don't understand a particular topic and how he doesn't mind repeating the same thing twice, or sometimes more than that.
