I was a primary school teacher for 9.5 years. I taught mainly the P5s & P6s, specialising in English and Science. I have about two years' experience teaching the P3s & P4s.
I like to use a variety of methods to teach, e.g. ask 'thinking' questions and use YouTube videos, PPT slides/visuals & humour. I feel that it is important that I help my pupils to grasp concepts easily and learn how to refine their answering techniques, especially for open-ended sections. But it is also important that my pupils are engaged in the course of learning so that they can retain information more easily. I have also accumulated good resources over the years which can stretch the pupils more by giving them more exposure.
I have taught a wide range of pupils, from high-performers to low-performers. I enjoy pushing pupils to achieve their personal best, be it scoring A*s/As or passing their exams, as it shows them what they can achieve through hard work and perseverance. It also greatly boosts their self-confidence when they see what they are capable of.
Despite having left the teaching profession, I still enjoy teaching tremendously.
