    Experience :
    I have recently completed my National Service, and am awaiting to start my undergraduate studies this coming August.  I am very interested in both learning and teaching Mathematics, Chemistry, and Physics, because I believe that I can learn a lot from teaching others. During my time in Victoria Junior College (VJC), I helped to peer-tutor some of my friends who were weaker in certain subjects.  Being interested in Chemistry and Physics, I undertook a research project at A*STAR's Institute of Materials Research and Engineering, where I researched on stabilizing gold and silver nanoparticles. I was awarded the A*STAR JC Science Award for 2014 and 2015, and the VJC Scholarship in 2015. I will be studying Chemical Engineering under NUS's Global Engineering Programme this coming August. Moving on to my teaching methods. As a Secondary 3 student, I was inspired by my Chemistry teacher, who taught lessons in an entirely novel way. He took the effort to memorise every student's name within the first week, and taught lessons by guiding us to the answer through probing questions, instead of giving us the answer directly. Through his question-based approach, I was able to grasp and retain concepts easily as I had the freedom to form my own explanations to difficult concepts. This question-based learning has shaped my opinion of what pedagogy should be. As a tutor, I hope to teach through asking, to engage and allow for concepts to be formed, linked, and reinforced. I hope to befriend every one of my students so as to create a friendly, feasible environment for the sharing of ideas, which I feel is an integral part of learning for both the student and myself.
