Experience/ Testimonials
I have the privilege to work with an ex-Harvard Professor in education at NIE in an educational research project involving innovative pedagogy (teaching method) for the teaching of sciences. This research experience has enriched my understanding on how individual learns and helps me to devise creative ways to motivate and help them in their studies. In addition, my stint at NIE as an educational researcher involved extensive interactions with school teachers and this has also allowed me to understand the constraints in current Singapore secondary school system. For tutoring style, I do not teach but rather I prefer to mentor the student and facilitate their learning. In the other word, I see myself as the student's learning partner. I share my personal and academic experiences. I also aim to motivate students to realise their goals. I focus on the understanding of the subject and not just teaching them to pass the examination. This is very important to me as I realise the importance of understanding when I was teaching this past student who did well in his O level. He made it to a top JC and I continued to assist him in his A level. I was surprised that he has forgotten so much stuff in the few months after his O level. He was a straight A student but he did badly in his JC 1 exam. The reason is very simple as he has “memorised” hard to ace his O level exams. In this current society where it is not uncommon for students to get 8 or 9 As, it is not surprising that people want impressive results. I do not deny that this is important but I would still insist that they should learn with understanding as it would give them a strong foundation and prepare them well for their subsequent studies. I hope that all my students learn "how to fish" and not just be given “fish”. Learning how to learn is more challenging but I want them to bring along this valuable skills and excel in their future. Since 2000, I have taught students from Victoria School, River Valley, ACS, Cedar Girl, Chung Cheng High Main, Maris Stella, St. Andrew's, St Margaret, Catholic High, Anglican High, Singapore Chinese Girl School, Nanhua .... In addition, I also have experience in helping students with special needs (e.g. hearing impaired, ADHD...).
