Tuition Background
Tuition/Teaching Experience
I have been teaching upper Primary, Secondary as well as JC students for since 2007. As such, I am very well in sync with the current school syllabus and marking system. Students typically display a stark improvement in their school results based on the memory methods and techniques I impart to them. I am equipped with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from NUS as well as a Master degree in Psychology from the City University of New York. I am interested in discovering new learning methodologies, reading up on mnemonic techniques, as well as researching on brain development, and I am certain that my endeavors to improve your child's learning will be translated to better academic grades.

    Course Description:
    I believe that a strong foundation is essential for one to excel in a language. Hence, in my class, I will cover in detail the technical intricacies of English Language. They are pertaining to tenses, Subject-Verb agreement, prepositions, vocabulary and so on. I will also provide assignments and past-year papers for students to practice and these will typically be a revision of what I have covered in class. On top of these, I will help with their comprehension passages, answering techniques and providing succinct, accurate answers. I will also touch on essays and compositions, and help students with their self-expression and oral exams.
    Other Details:
    Pace will be pegged to the average learning appetite of the class.
    Homework will be given to reinforce what was taught during class — this will be marked and discussed during the next lesson.
