My Passion & How I Inspire

Tutoring is very much an interactive process and I see three steps in my tutoring method.

1. Explain difficult topics in textbooks and help my tutee with assigned work from school. Conceptual understanding is much more important than memorizing a particular method.

2. Deliver a custom-made course of the exam syllabus, offering much more clarity and depth compared to lessons at school. Supply information on more practical uses of the knowledge.

3. Act as a guide for my tutees to develop independent problem-solving skills and learning pattern which would maximize their own potential.

The tutoring approach will evolve during the course of tutorials to make sure all three steps are covered and all the specific needs of my tutee are met. Due to my younger age, I have been told that I engage better with the tutees and I am confident with explaining topics clearly and delivering easy-going and effective sessions.
