    My Passion And How I Inspire

    I am a good listener, and a patient tutor. I always seek to build a trusting relationship with the tutees, whose learning progress and comfort is a top priority.

    – Structured teaching aligned with syllabus
    – Guidance in generation of revision notes
    – Exam techniques
    – Time management targeted for exam preparation
