    Experience :

    Having a reasonable amount of experience (9 years) in giving home tuition and teaching classes in various tuition centres, I can say that being a good tutor is not as simple as it seems. It is not as simple as having a great interest in providing guidance to the students and regurgitating from the textbook. Experience hits harder than qualifications.   During this period of time, not only have I established relevant communication skills that has helped me build a strong rapport with my students, I have also received very constructive feedbacks from my students on how to improve in my teaching. Coming from a humble background of scoring 199 in my Primary School Leaving Examinations (PSLE) and ended my academic education life with an engineering honours degree from National University of Singapore (NUS), I have inspired and imparted many life lessons to my students with my personal experiences. In my opinion, the secondary school students are going through one of the most important phases of their life as they grow and transit to be a young adult. It is during this period of time when their environment and everything they do have a strong influence on their life decisions. I regret to say that I did not receive such support when I was going through this during my secondary school years, therefore I strive to be the person to provide them with proper guidance and help them seek their true potential, both in their academic and personal life during this important period of time. Coming from a background of specialised engineering degree, I am equipped with technical expertise. The technical knowledge that I have acquired from engineering allowed me to expose the students to modern technology applications, such as wireless charging and solar panels, through the teaching of physics. The Engineering curriculum has exposed me to various tools, such as the use of breadboard, for teaching. With a strong technical background, I am able to draw the strong correlation between Physics and Mathematics, which allow students to experience the fusion of these two subjects. I am also involved in the publishing of physics assessment books and the curation of yearly physics preliminary papers and marking schemes for the O level students. While doing practice questions, I focus on the students presentation of answers. This is because most of the students are able to understand the basic concept but have difficulties in expressing the concept explicitly, which causes them to lose marks. In order to minimise their effort with the maximum return of marks, I will provide customised answering templates to the students as reference for them to follow. At the same time, I will explain the purpose of the points mentioned and their chronological arrangement. As an experienced tutor, I understand how students feel when they have to do tuition work on top of school work. Hence, I will always emphasise the idea of good quality work than quantity work. As such, I usually give only key concept questions that are necessary for complete understanding of a topic. If required, I will request the student to do a simple mind map of the chapter as homework as it can encourage the student to get an overview of the chapter. Through this manner, I want to instil a strong mentality in them that no matter what assignment they encounter in life, they should always give in their maximum effort to achieve the best result that they can have.   To some, teaching is a daily routine process of imparting knowledge. To me, teaching is ever more than that  it is about understanding the teenagers and making positive transformations in their lives by honing their critical thinking skills and character. In this process, I have spent time and effort to explain to students the rationale of education and I have discovered great sense of satisfaction when I am able to earn genuine respect from students out of pure gratitude. Hence, my teaching slogan is Character and value transformations through education unleashes the true potential of every student.   I strongly believe that a teacher has a wide range of responsibilities to fulfil in order to mould the future generation. I believe that my experience over the last 9 years as a tutor has greatly prepared me to enhance my capability to groom your child.   As a full-time tutor, my commitment to my students is ranked at the utmost priority. Hence, I will make known to them that they are able to contact me through various means (such as whatsapp/SMS/email/phone call) to clear their doubts.   Number of Students - 68   Number of subjects taken - 76   Number of Distinctions - 35   Percentage of Distinctions - 47%   Number of B3 and above - 70   Percentage of B3 and above - 92.1%
