I have taught GP, Literature, and English to a wide cross-section of students of all abilities for over 12 years. I am good at assessing individual students' strengths and weaknesses and tailoring my lessons to suit their needs. I am also very familiar with the requirements of the GP syllabus and have developed a set of sound techniques to help students tackle the A Levels. On top of teaching students how to answer exam questions, ensuring that they do sufficient written work, and giving customised feedback, I also help hone their critical thinking and expose them to a wide range of readings and articles on current affairs and general knowledge. Some of my students have moved from S or E grades to B grades after just 4 months of lessons with me. My students tell me that my lessons are very clear and that I explain key concepts and complex ideas in a way that is easy to understand. I am also a part-time writer and editor and have been actively involved in Singapore's literary scene for more than 10 years.
