Mdm Dorothy is the first tutor to ever succeed in helping me achieve band 7 in both writing and speaking. She did not hesitate to criticize me when I made mistake but she was also generous with her praise and this motivated me to work harder as well as to avoid making the same mistake. With regards to writing lessons, Mdm Dorothy did not just correct my grammatical and tenses errors, she also constructed a better sentence by using her own ideas and this helped me to further improve my writing skills. She was also willing to provide her modal answers as references. With regards to speaking lessons, she started with the basics like pronunciation and enunciation. At first I was sceptical with this approach but then it all made sense. As the conversation during the speaking test is recorded, this particular lesson taught me to emphasize the 'ed' and enabled the examiner to differentiate between the past tense and the present tense.

Experience

I have been working with young children for more than 8 years. My specialization is working with children with Dyslexia. My first Degree is Bachelor in Arts, majoring in Communication Studies. Later on, I pursued studies in Early Years Education, Learning Difficulties, Child Psychology, Multisensory Teaching Approach, Phonics and Phonetic Instructor Training to help children, particularly those with Learning Difficulties. I regard myself as a dynamic educator who strives to make lessons fun and easy for my students to understand.

Tutoring Approach

While I enjoy tutoring children in phonics, my true passion lies in equipping parents and teachers with the tools and knowledge to confidently teach phonics themselves. Hence, I encourage parental involvement during my 1-1 lessons with young children. Besides offering 1-1 tutoring services, I also offer 4-6 hour workshops to parents and educators,  with the aim of providing practical resources and strategies for effective phonics instruction. By empowering parents and teachers, I believe we can make a significant impact on children's academic success.

With engaging and tailored teaching methods, Ms. Yeoh creates a warm and inclusive learning environment. Her ability to simplify complex concepts is remarkable, and she genuinely cares about her students' development. By adapting to individual learning styles, she ensures that each student can advance at their own pace. Thanks to Ms. Yeoh's expertise, my child's phonics skills have significantly improved, fostering a love for reading and language.

Experience

Whenever we talk about experiences, what counts is the quality rather than the quantity. The Englishire project has given me ample opportunities to help English learners of all ages master the language.

 

Some of my coaching adventures in recent years include:

  • coaching non-native English speakers to help develop their language skills, grammar and vocabulary
  • coaching local and expatriate professionals to help improve their business and conversational English
  • coaching business undergraduates in academic writing to help nurture their content management skills
  • coaching candidates taking English proficiency tests to help strengthen their language foundations
  • coaching schoolchildren to help foster a growth mindset and a lifelong learning culture

Be it directly or indirectly, each of the above has helped refine my approach to language coaching.

Tutoring Approach

Inspirational and educational, the Englishire approach is based primarily on transformative, intuitive and collaborative learning.

Fueled by everything that I got from my 27 years of experience in language learning, Englishire only has one ultimate goal in mind: create an environment that promotes your language skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing) so that you can gradually pick up the English language the natural way.

Rather than bombard you with tons of information that you can’t relate to, every single activity in Skilletro uses context to facilitate learning.

By getting quality exposure to real-life examples and scenarios, you’ll have a much better idea of how to use the language in everyday situations—whether for academic or work purposes.

Molly

I am so happy that I took Jion's lessons. The tips that he shared with me were really useful. He were very helpful in answering my questions too. Overall, I truly appreciate what he taught me.

Mr. Cheung

Jion is very thoughtful. Even after the lesson is over, he still gives Joanne suggestions on how to improve. His concern for the student's learning progress is great to see.

Yufan

Jion's grammar and writing skills are very good. His advice helped me a lot and he was willing to explain everything in detail. I'm so glad that I can now write with confidence!

Ms. Aoki

I like Jion's approach. He always shares with me his opinions on my daughter's work. For each essay, he also shows her what she must do to improve. His comments are very useful!

Yawei

Jion is so fluent and confident with the English language. He helped improve my grammar with patience, teaching me how to change the sentence structure to make it more native-like. Also, he gave me many useful tips on academic writing. It was an excellent learning experience for me. I really appreciate his work.

Nafisah

Jion is a great English language coach. I like how he makes everything easy for me to understand. The detailed explanation also shows his dedication to teaching. I'm really grateful for the opportunity to learn from such an experienced English speaker.

Winnie

With so many websites giving free English learning tips these days, I thought it wouldn't be necessary to get a tutor. But after taking Jion's one-on-one lessons, I changed my mind. For a busy working professional like me, I always wanted to improve my English without filling my schedule with too many lessons. His approach was really helpful in that regard. He shared with me plenty of tips on how to practice my English skills by myself. Wherever I go, I'm now able to use every opportunity I have to improve my English further.

Dr. Ng

Jion's excellent command of the language and willingness to share his knowledge are evident in his approach to language coaching. Regardless of the difficulty of the topic, he has a canny ability to explain it in a comprehensible and compelling way. When coaching undergraduates in academic writing, showing them how to present a logical and convincing argument, his grasp of linguistic nuances and attention to detail are particularly impressive.

Sue

Whether it's face-to-face or online, Jion puts a great amount of effort into coaching his students. His passion for the English language is inspiring. When I first approached him for guidance on my IELTS, I was hoping to get some quick tips on how to improve my writing. To be honest, due to the heavy workload I was dealing with, I was looking for something that could make my preparations easier. Surprisingly, Jion told me from the start that we wouldn't focus on the answering techniques. I thought that wasn't a good idea because I was struggling a bit in the previous writing paper. But I gave it a try anyway. Thank God it turned out to be the right decision. Instead of spoon-feeding me with things that I already knew, he made me see the whole picture of how to write better. For example, he showed me how to convey and organize my ideas, and explained a few ways that I could use to make the writing more interesting. All that was really helpful. Without his input, I might not have achieved the score I wished for. And I'm really grateful to Jion for making me realize that there's no shortcut to improving my writing skills. It's something that I need to continuously work on. Thank you so much for your time and effort, Jion!

David

No matter where you are in your English learning journey, Jion will definitely be able to help you improve. Thanks to his friendly personality and fluent English, the lessons are fun, interesting and easy to follow. But what I like most about him is his ability to inspire you to keep learning and growing.

Tutoring Approach

The key to success in subjects such as Economics and Business is to have a thorough understanding of the material. Memorising definitions and concepts word for word is highly discouraged. Questions are constantly changing from year to year, as such, making sure that students have the skill to apply theory to different questions and scenarios is my top priority. I identify major key points and concepts of a chapter, and methodically explain them step by step with breaks in between for questions. I make concepts easy to understand by using relevant and relatable examples. I sprinkle in real life examples, current events and updated statistics as well, which students can use to enhance their answers, especially for essay or extended response questions. Stickman drawings are my forte, and have been proven to be exceptionally useful for students to understand complicated topics such as bonds and investments. Combining relatable examples, current events, stickman drawings and plain English explanations, students are able to grasp concepts with ease. My students are exposed to a variety of past year questions, usually after every topic. They are drilled with every section tested in their exams, commonly multiple choice questions (MCQs), short and extended response questions. I provide detailed feedback on homework completed by my students, mainly for subjective or open-ended questions, and explanations for any confusing MCQs. Closer towards exam periods, I carry out time-based practice, to hone my students’ time management skills, which then allows them identify areas of weakness. I cover topics which the student is not too confident in, so no time is wasted explaining something they already know, unless requested. My lessons are a safe space where students are encouraged to ask questions, ensuring there are no gaps in their knowledge of the subject. I have my own resources and materials, accumulated throughout my teaching career which will be provided exclusively to my students. A key benefit my students have is that they can message me at any time to ask for help outside our tuition sessions.

Outside of the education world, performed in a lot of functions such as weddings, company and other events. Travelled to various countries for international choral competitions.

Tutoring Approach

My approach to tutoring is that I tailor my lesson to the needs of the student. I will tutor in my own home or that of the student. I will vary my style depending on the ability and needs of the student. I aim to run my lesson in support of the progression of my students through their music syllabus, but I am also willing to progress more slowly and focus on particularly weak areas if the student so desires. I will also offer pre-exam revision sessions for all exams including ABRSM, Trinity and IGCSE Exam. As I aim to tailor my lesson to the individual I do expect students to maintain regular contact in regards to their progressions and their individual needs. I expect students come with a clear idea of what it is they hope to get from the music lessons. I will provide each student with a progress log and detailed feedback on how they are performing and areas where they need to improve, I may also set work for my students to complete outside of sessions and for this set work I will listen and observe during the next lesson. I am happy to meet with the parents or guardians of my students prior to the commencement of lesson in order to ascertain what they wish their child to gain from the lesson. I am also happy to meet with parents and guardians regularly during the music lesson to discuss their child's progress and if required I am happy to provide parents with written reports on their child's progress.

Master in Film

Experience

Unusually, my two degrees are very different. My BA in Theology is from Kings College London. My Master in Film is from Middlesex University, London.

My professional career was mostly spent working as an Executive Personal Assistant in the worlds of Public Relations and Communications. Many of my clients were startups, and other clients included the Archbishop of Canterbury. These were very vibrant and demanding places to work. They were all project based, which suits my personality as I enjoy preparing for them building up to an event.

In all my roles I was often the resident 'English Expert'. I would review documents, edit speeches, offer advice to colleagues and generally give feedback on written or spoken English.

As part of my work in Communications I was involved in Media Training. My seniors would interview clients on camera and give them feedback they would use when they appeared on TV or radio.

During my Master degree in Film, I developed this interest and now have understand how to operate the camera as well as script or edit what is said. Video interviews are now very important in aspects of many environments. Working on presentation skills, written, spoken and recorded is really important.

Outside work I supported many charities with my time and skills. These ranged from teenage homelessness through to running a Nationally recognised Disaster Fund that provided support to the victims of bombings in London.

Despite my professional credentials, I'm a very relaxed and patient, and really enjoy supporting people as they progress with their projects and ambitions.

A couple of random things: I was a twice British Champion Powerlifter (a long long time ago) and I have a Black Belt in Kung Fu lol

Tutoring Approach

Relaxed is the key word, but that doesn't mean unfocused. What is important is that we both work out what our goal is then I take the lead in devising a plan to get you there.

To keep you motivated, the materials we use have to be interesting. With this in mind, I'm open to using newspapers, articles, transcripts, film scripts, books, novels, songs and anything you find interesting as a base for our work.

There will be times when studying is a grind, and we can't avoid that, but every project worth completing needs to be difficult at times.

As I've mentioned before, you can even give your responses to camera!

I would like to thanks you for your guidance in IELTS preparation. I have been in a complete lost about many things in IELTS exam components , until I’ve met you. In Listening, you gave me tips and tricks, in Reading you improve my understanding, in writing I’ve learnt the correct format, organized my contents and how to use an academics words. In speaking , I’ve learnt some new topic and how to understand and answer within the topic. With a countless grammatical error that you’ve corrected me I am a better person in learning English. Oh my dear teacher thanks ? I wanted you to know, how I felt better in my confidence to face exam tomorrow. With God bless , I hope I will pass with a great band score. God bless you teacher! Love yaaaa.

Thank you so much Dr. Annithaa teacher. I am writing to express my deepest appreciation for your incredible dedication, passion, and unwavering commitment to teaching me for the Muet Examination. Your patience and willingness to go extra mile did not go unnoticed, whether it was spending extra time after class to clarify my doubts and life related things ( how to be passionate doing one thing that you love , love towards pets, how to handle arrogant and rude people around us) it is beyond exceptional. Not gonna lie our bond especially when it comes to dogs made us more closer together ? I am forever indebted to your guidance. May god bless you and I am thankful to god that I met a successful role model and kind-hearted person like you still exist in this cruel world. I will always keep in touch with you teacher.

Faizul

Studying with Dr Annithaa brought a lot of happiness in my life. Dr. Annithaa is not like any other educators whom I met throughout my life journey. When I first met her, my first impression is to understand that she was just like any other professional educator, but I was wrong. The reason why I am saying this is because Dr. Annithaa is much more than just a teacher to me. I adore and take her as a second mother to me. She is a very strict educator yet very loving. She care about her students and make sure to impart Top World Class Education. Studying with Dr Annithaa can be fun. As I mentioned earlier, she is very strict, yet I can joke around her as she is very funny too. We also share common interest. Whenever I have anxiety, she will divert my attention into something productive to give me lots of confidence because initially I thought that I would fail my fail as I was not confident of my level. This little things is what made me to appreciate Dr Annithaa. I never met any educators who would go this far to make me comfortable in class. Oh. I forgot to mention that she made one of the best coffee every time in our class and sometimes orange Sunquick if she runs out of coffee. Although she is extremely busy, she doesn't forget to make a cup of delicious coffee for me. I would highly recommend students to study with Dr.. Annithaa where your learning process can turn into a beautiful experience for you, not just because students can be comfortable around her but she is also a very dedicated individual in her tasks in contributing the best world class education to her students. Dr Annithaa, may God bless you for all that you have done not just for me, but to all your students in helping them to achieve their dreams in life.

Syed Ali Hashimi

She is a great teacher in terms of motivation, I love about that. If we are in troubles she will pay attention about that and give us solutions, she had immense of idea because of her experiences. However, my suggestion for MUET candidates who want to gain result band 4.5 and above, you need to be at least band 4 level to catch up with Dr. Annitaa’s 16hours teaching package. By the way, I got my MUET result: Band 4. I learnt widely speaking patterns & improve my listening skills because of her fluency & expertise in speaking English. Even though I study MUET with her, I would say she is a great teacher especially in IELTS, I learnt immensely in terms of attitude from her.

SITI

Dr Annithaa is a versatile educator who can give a fantastic style of learning exposure in terms of developing English skills, build up confidence among students to practice English and very cognizant with her teaching method. She is humble, self motivated and very helpful to all her students without any prejudice in order to ensure good results where it can be beneficial towards their brighter future. As for me, I always admire her and I guarantee you that by choosing her as your tutor can give much advantages towards a proper English learning and help you to excel well in your examination and study.

Labainur

Dr Annithaa is very lovely kind teacher. Back in 2019, I’ve struggled a lot in finding the best teacher to help me prepare my upcoming IELTS exams. I went to few other teachers before I met teacher Annithaa. Unfortunately, I progressed nothing with other teachers. But with teacher Annithaa, within 2 months I could say, I have improved a lot in terms of writing, speaking, listening and reading (IELTS) and even feel more confident to sit for the exam. I am now just graduated from one of universities in the UK and currently working in London. I knew i wouldn’t have passed my IELTS exams at first place without assistance from Dr Annitthaa. I’m grateful I found her in MyPrivateTutor, plus she is very lovely kind teacher I’ve ever had. Thank you so much teacher Annitthaa

Amiruddin

I would say that choosing her as my personal tutor was an intelligent step I ever had. She always put her enthusiasm in every class we go through as well as gives me immense amount of motivation to strive for success. Personally, I would recommend Dr Annithaa for all students or IELTS candidates to study with her in order to improvise your English language proficiency. Thank you so much teacher for all your support during my IELTS journey.

Wendiyawati

At first I could not speak English because I did not have much vocabulary in my brain. After I met you I knew a lot of English that I never knew like words that were high level English etc. I studied with you to prepare for IELTS and I just got results for my IELTS and maybe it hasn't been a fortune because I failed my test but it wasn't because of who taught me but it was because of my ability that only got there. I do not blame anyone for this problem , I only blame myself because I did not try enough on this issue. I am very lucky to meet you teacher, you are like my mother, taking care of me very kindly and patiently. good luck to your life teacher.

Reem

Dr. Annithaa is the best English teacher in the world. I have tried many teachers before but nobody could helped to score the required band in IELTS except her. She is the right choice and the solution for IELTS constraints. I strongly recommend her, she is the best in terms of education as well as she is very friendly and humble.

Mt

I would highly recommend her to all students because of her professional way of imparting knowledge to students where I personally have experienced her way of teaching. She gives students detailed information about each and every topic in class. I am indeed very lucky to have studied with her and she has such powerful strategy to make students get a very high score band for IELTS.

He has the most patience in teaching from any other teacher I know. Any math or add math questions can ask him, he would be glad to teach you, his explanation is really clear and understandable👍. I would ask him to teach me more for further math in the future.

Ian Tan

In a nutshell, you really helped me out by understanding where and what I didn’t know! W/no prior add math, you had to essentially teach me the whole syllabus within 2 months. It was a struggle at first but you helped break down different topics into easily understandable lessons 😁 And even though later on in the more challenging parts of A-level math, you would take the time to go over the chapters and show me the different ways to tackle problems. It’s hard to say just how much your help has pushed me through my course! Here are my results: A-level Maths: A* A-level Further Maths: A

Mr Edmund is patient in his teaching. He will find different ways to make you understand the methods in solving the math problems with extra exercises provided in class. His unique way of teaching makes math subject interesting!

Although I started out with a strong dislike of maths, Mr Edmund helped me find joy and confidence in it. His determination to teach us to truly understand the material, and not simply answer the exam questions, is what sets him apart from other maths teachers I've had. His patience and resilience with my classmates and I (despite our incompetence at times) was admirable, and I'll always be grateful for the knowledge I've learned from him.

Mathematics and Statistics, once you understand them, you will see the point of learning them and know how much sense they could make! Besides, when it comes closer to exams, I'll focus on teach techniques or smarter ways to hack the marking scheme! I plan lessons according to student's need eg what they are weaker in, how do they prefer to learn, the pace etc; in short, I respect and communicate with my students all the time.

I took Econometrics with Ms Elaine.She shall teach you from scratch.There are things you understand in lay man's term and she will guide to explain in formal/exam format way.Students might recall just a snippet of certain topics but when you explain to her on just that small part,she help you recall the whole topic. She'll explain the rationale of the formula and she knows exactly what each detail means.She'll relate the formula with the graph so you understand what the graph means and you know how to read the graph. She simplify the method to calculate the formula such as substitution/differentiation (that we learn from SPM/GCE). She shall remind us that the calculus is not complicated at all, it seems complicated because we panic too much.

Elaine helped me with my UNI Statistics subject. She's very good at explaining the ideas behind the formulas and make them very easy to understand. She's very friendly and helpful, even outside of class time.

Used to teach some undergraduate and foundations students, mostly focus on sejarah and biology. Able to explain in mandarin as well.

Tutoring Approach

I always made some interestings slides to attract students attentions and interest for more interactive studies. Bisides this, I also guided students to went through some questions one by one, explain to them how to answer specific questions as well as where are the points alllocated. By doing so, students can understand better the keywords and also will feel more confident in scoring in exams.

Anthony Tee is a very kind, hardworking and dedicated tutor who teaches my son the most boring subject in his very own way and making it interesting for easy understanding. Being a postgraduate student himself in PhD/Medical Microbiology, he sure sets a very good example to his students. Thumbs up Anthony!

Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science

Experience

I have previously taught a class of primary students as a part-time classroom teacher for a month, which started off my interest in teaching. I've started to do 1-on-1 classes with students on programming (mainly python).

Tutoring Approach

I will always read through what I will teach before entering the class to ensure I know what I am talking about before projecting it into the young minds. Personally, I tend to make an image of a subject which is easily imaginable so the students would be able to understand concepts not just through alphabets and words, but visually as well. Mainly, I prefer to guide them through by doing hands-on exercises, so that we can go over obstacles together.

Bachelor of Science (Honours) in psychology

Experience

     I am a teacher, formerly a senior teacher at English House. I have produced excellent results with my students there. I have 11 years experience in teaching adults. Also, I taught English to children (including teenagers) for 5 years, at English House and at homes for underprivileged kids. I was previously a top student at Garden International School and Epsom College in England.

Tutoring Approach

      I focus on 3 areas: 1. Helping children (including teenagers) improve their grades 2. Proficiency in the English language for adults and children 3. Helping children weak in the English language improve and increase self-confidence.   I have assisted children from National and International schools in improving their grades. Students who failed their exams improved to passing grades, students with C's improved to B's, and B students became A students.   I help adults and children clients improve their written and spoken English. I use effective techniques to help them improve their grammar. I also can help them improve their essay writing, critical thinking and creativity. Having been a top student in my studying days and having lived in England, I have the experience to be of help.    I also have a special skill at helping children students weak in English and who have poor self-confidence improve. For example, one of my teenage students was failing all his subjects badly, including English. After just over a year with me, his English grade improved from an E to a C. Despite receiving tuition from other teachers in other school subjects, he continued to fail in all subjects except English. He became more self-confident.     I also provide added value by helping adults and children manage stress better, if they are open to it. I do this by sharing a  psychology technique called mindfulness. My clients have responded well: I've seen children's focus and grades improve. Adult clients report managing stress better and being more positive.
