I am passionate about Literature and teaching. Therefore, it was not a difficult career choice for me to choose to be a full time tutor. Personally, I feel that every student has different needs and it is critical for me to cater my lesson according to his or her abilities and interests in order to carry out a meaningful lesson. I do not believe in using the word "weak" to describe ANY student; I believe in guiding the student to achieve the best that he or she can do. Everyone can succeed but first, I must believe in my student. My teaching philosophy is this:
Last but not least, I love learning and there is a certain lack of joy in learning for many students, especially in English and Literature. I seek to change them for my students. I want them not just to learn, but to want to learn.
