I have two years of experience tutoring my cousins in secondary school and helped them to improve their mathematics and chemistry grades. In my time in IB, I also often helped my friends with Math, Chemistry and Physics problems, as well as helping to clarify any concepts which they might not understand completely.
I have taught students from ACSi, UWC, HCII and OFS. Currently i have 3 students from OFS, ACS independent and ACS international schools.
I can teach SL math, HL chemistry and HL physics at IB level.
Usually students see a 2-3 point increase in their grades after about 1 term or a few months of lessons

I have taught for 5 years, with over 25 students. I have also taught 2 Sec 1 students from Bukit Panjang Government High Express Math, and their grades improved from B3 to A1 and C6 to A2. I have also tutored a Sec 2 student from Yuying Secondary Math, Chemistry/Biology, and her grades improved from B4 to A1.
I am currently teaching a Sec 2 student from Jurong Sec and his grades improved from B3 to A1, and a Sec 1 student from NJC Secondary Math, and her grades have improved from E8 to B3. When I first meet the student, I will go through topics, then give them assignments. Once they are done, I will mark these assignments and give feedback on misconceptions and answering techniques and these assignments will progress in difficulty. I will also assign tuition homework that is to be completed and sent so that I can immediately go through when the lesson starts.

Equipped with a wide range of resources (from elementary questions to challenging ones), hence well suited to meet the needs of students with different academic performance capabilities.
Has vast exposure to pupils with varied preferred methods of study, with consequential experience in crafting individualized styles (for visual, auditory, kinesthetic learners etc). Able to engage kids / pupils of different learning styles to keep them captivated.
Emphasizes making learning an enjoyably comfortable, non-dreadful process as students will definitely retain concepts much better, rather than learning in a mundane (conventional) environment. Quality of lesson delivery, while, will not be compromised.
Takes time and is very patient in correcting any misconception in pupil's understanding before teaching any new concepts. This will prevent unnecessary trouble and wastage of precious time in fixing any erroneous thinking in future.
Innovates/Modifies teaching to accommodate student's speed and ease at picking up new concepts e.g. coming up with own/consolidating FAQs across primary school exam papers.
Has also dealt with a few pupils with behavioral impairments that might make "conventional" learning difficult / unsuitable for them. My response would be to tailor the lesson and materials to suit and complement the students' preferences and needs instead, rather than simply force "route" learning upon them (when they are already struggling academically). Also, I am a firm believer of a strong teacher-pupil relationship as kids would be more receptive to a teacher who is both a friend and a mentor, someone they can look up to and/or even confide in.
Passionate and able to help students perform better in their academics by forging a lasting teacher-pupil relationship with them. Drawing from my own past and personal experience as one, and from the feedback of my ex-pupils, students would feel more comfortable and hence encouraged to seek help in their studies when the environment is a conducive, stress-free and motivational one for learning. Rest assured I will still maintain my professionalism as a teacher throughout. I am also very open to feedback / comments from parents and I will do my best to cater to their demands, in addition to their child's.
Have helped all my kids improve in the subjects / areas they have engaged me in, and delivered results parents are satisfied with (I have helped kids who have been failing to pass in 2 months of tuition as a newly hired tutor (see progress reports as mentioned above), and likewise for those who wish to attain mastery ('A'/'Band 1') in the subject they're being tutored in). Innovates and adapts teaching styles on a discretionary basis to suit each child's needs Also equipped with resources aplenty to assist kids in their learning (I work with my mom who has 30 over years of tutoring experience in kindergarten and primary school, with the bulk of her expertise centered on the latter - we have a tuition room set apart in our house for her students). Currently 17 students on hand, aged P2 to P6 (International students aged Grade 2, 4 and 5 from SJII and AIS) being tutored in English, Math, and Science. Also provide tutoring on specialized/targeted areas e.g. Creative/Composition Writing. Able to furnish more details on my teaching experience on request / if the parent is keen on engaging me.
Tutor's Personality: Resolute believer in building relationships with primary school children before dispensing the professional duties of a teacher. I fully trust in the element of personal connection and touch with students as an effective gateway for both them and yourself - a teacher, mentor, and coach - to receive and impart knowledge meaningfully. Passionate and sincere about the teaching profession as I firmly believe in the potentially vast extent of influence a teacher has on her kids, being responsible for their holistic development as an individual of character and with respectable values as a person, not just being solely accomplished in their academics. I prize the growth of my child's character and the blossoming of his(/her) own identity/personality before his grades (e.g. I often help to build and bolster their confidence in their weak subjects first, rather than simply having them do questions after questions in a mundane, and often meaningless, manner). Only when he has regained his self-confidence would I move into honing his technical skills of interpreting and answering questions. Nonetheless, I also observe the professionalism and technical competencies expected/demanded of a teacher and would hence not shortchange them of any opportunities for learning or neglect their areas of weakness in the subjects they are being tutored in.
I am a patient and meticulous tutor who will provide summarised notes for each individual chapter of the subject. This will greatly help the student to strengthen their basic understanding of the concepts. I will also conduct tests every 2 weeks for my student in order to test my student's ability on the understanding of the concepts being taught in the previous few lessons. I had taught a p6 student last year for English and maths. His grade improved from C to A for English and maths. I am currently teaching pure chemistry and pure biology for 1 secondary 4 student. His grade improved from B3 to A2.

In my 10 years of teaching Maths in a Secondary School, I try different methods to engage learners because each individual is different. However, I am able to work with weak students to motivate them to help them pick up their grades from fail to a passing grade. Besides the numbers, during my teaching process, students develop an interest and desire to work hard and start to believe in themselves. Besides results, I strongly believe in a student's attitude to be unlocked in order to achieve their goals.
