What are my qualifications and experience?
I graduated from NUS with a major in applied mathematics in 2007 and started giving tuition full time in 2013. I teach at private education centers and 1-1 at students' homes.
As of the end of 2019, I have taught more than 100 students in Junior College Mathematics and more than 30 students from the IGCSE and IB syllabus.
Help students recover their confidence and improve in mathematics.
Many of my students engaged me when they are doing poorly in their math.
Students are unique in their learning style and prefer to have tuition conducted in different ways.
Some students prefer a question and answer approach. These students have specific questions that they want me to address during class.
When answering their questions, I provide the concepts and give them hints in a way sensitive to their level of understanding so that they can proceed with solving the question. Then I challenge them with similar questions to test whether they have understood the concepts. Testing helps to build their confidence.
At the end of the session, I make sure to address all of their questions before I leave.
Addressing weakness in selected topics
Some students are good at math in general but do poorly in some topics because they do not understand the basics of those topics.
For such students, I take time to go through with them the basics of the chapter. Using easy examples and questions, I help them to see that the topic is not as difficult as it seems to them.
After I assess that the students have the basics of the topic in place, I then guide them to do progressively harder questions until they become comfortable with the topic.
Some students are self-motivated and independent and only have issues with a few topics. I do not compel students to stay with me until the final examination, once they have their issues addressed, they can stop tuition. I will still check on them regularly to see if they are progressing well over text messages.
Help students tune in to the optimal mental state for learning
A student's mental state determines if learning is effective. If they are physically, mentally, or emotionally disturbed, it will be hard for them to pay attention, think clearly, or remember what they are learning.
When I sensed that a student is affected by some issues, I take the initiative to address them. For example, by providing them with food and water, adjusting the room temperature with air conditioning, etcetera. Or discussing with them about the things that they have doubt about or are troubling them.
I believe that the responsibility of a tutor goes beyond the lesson time that I have with them. Most parents want to know how their children are progressing, so I regularly follow up with updates on their child's progress.
Learning is beyond just getting good exam results. Students should also gain in terms of learning new problem-solving approaches, confidence, cognitive skills, and a growth mindset. Things that will be important to the student even after they graduate from school.
Therefore, as a tutor, I am sensitive to the student's character and stage of cognitive development, their study approach, and mindsets and provide the appropriate guidance in an objective, well-informed, and professional way.

Born in a middle-income family, my parents never spent a dollar on me and my siblings' education.
However, all three of us graduated from National University from the Science (Applied Math), Arts (Theatre Studies and Philosophy), and Computing faculties.
After graduation, my sister continued to acquire professional qualifications in finance and law. My brother gained professional skills in project management and law. I earned a Masters in Business Administration.
I accredit our success with the parenting methods that my parents used to raise us and a series of right decisions and sacrifices that they made.
Because of our parents invested time and attention wisely in our education, my siblings and I grew up to be successful in our careers. We are financially well off to take care of ourselves and the people around us, including our parents.
In the book on the right, titled "The MIK Method". I share with you my childhood experience under such parenting so that you can have a reference.
Today's job market is highly competitive because there are many university graduates with little differentiation in their profiles and skillsets.
Using what I learned from MBA and many life and business coaches, I can develop a learning and career roadmap for your child. The roadmap will help your child start carving a fulfilling career and get them ready by the time they graduate.
