My Commitment and Style

I had taught in both Singapore schools, primary and secondary. From 2010-2011, I taught 'O'level Physics in a private school. I have just completed a year of teaching an autistic Secondary 4 student who is about to sit for his 'N' level exams. Through this experience, I am acquired more communication skill and patience.
Previously, I have also taught an ADHD P5 student. My other current student is an 'O' level student and I am starting to teach a student from New Zealand studying in an international school.I can commit to giving tuition for the next 3 years at least.

For teaching Physics, there are the Maths and the Facts sections. For the Facts sections, I make students remember definitions and explanation questions in point forms. Definitions can be broken into parts and memorised with understanding. I believe in explaining to students the facts before getting them to memorise.

As for the Maths portion in Physics and A and E Maths or Primary School Maths, I explain to my students how to interpret questions, break them down, highlight key facts. I also help them to learn how to integrate what they have learnt with what is in the questions. This helps them to gain problem-solving skills.

After that, I make my students do the same question. This is because students can understand how to solve a question but are still unable to independently solve the question. This is what I have found after years of study and tutoring.

After they solve the question on their own, I will repeat the problem-solving techniques and the basic facts and formulae they used. I have developed a systematic problem-solving technique which help students to solve both physics and maths questions.

I do not let my students do the so-called "Top Ten Schools" exam papers as the standard this distracts them from learning problem-solving skills. They end up memorising the answers with no understanding. This is bad learning as there is no real learning and answers memorised are irrelevant as questions can be changed by teachers year after year. Moreover, the questions they memorised seldom appear in their own school exams or national exams.

As for English, I make students read story-books and newspaper to learn good writing style, vocabularies and understanding of difficult passages. If their foundation is weak, I will have them do systematic English grammar-teaching books. The Taiwanese students I taught developed a passion in reading storybooks and within two years they achieve a breakthrough in their writing and understanding ability.

    Thank you for recommending Daphne Chia to teach chemistry to my daughter. She scored A1 for her chemistry in the O level exam.

    I like to feedback to you about tutor Ms Chia (Pure Chem teaching sec 4)
    She knows the subject very well.
    Her explainations are very clear.
    She cares for student.
    She has a schedule to follow. Thk You - Ms Yvonne

    On 15 Dec 2016, we engaged Ms Daphne Chia to teach our daughter Sec 3 Pure Chemistry so as to give her a headstart. She had her Chem test on 23 Feb & we are very happy that she scored an A2, an improvement of 3 grades from her previous Science result of C5 in Sec 2. Ms Daphne Chia is very effective in terms of her lesson preparation, lesson delivery & assessment of students' learning. She is also willing to go beyond her call of duty to help students by replying to their queries outside of tuition hours when needed. In addition, with her affable disposition, she is able to establish & maintain excellent rapport with students & their parents. Thank you.

    Ms Daphne Chia is a dedicated and committed tutor. She can cater to student's needs and can get along very well with parents too.

    Nov 2017
    My child has been taking private lessons for O level Chemistry from the tutor - Ms. Daphne Chia by Ace Tutors and we are impressed by her high dedication and passion displayed. My child has renewed her interest under the tutor's inspiration to secure improved grades in Chemistry subject.
    I am happy that the tutor's hard work has well surpassed my expectations and allowed my child to achieve her personal bests. Thank you. by Ms Chiew Har

    Rapport Building
    Most of my students are weak in physics, and I tried to make them be able to see the impact and logic behind physical laws and principles. In my opinion, this is the most important factor as physics cannot be learned through pure mugging. This enhance the interest of the students, thus making them more enthusiastic studying the subject. With most students getting distinctions for their O' level and A' level, this further support my case.

    For students weak in math, my aim is to make them feel comfortable with math. Many students have the misconception that math is something that they do not need in future or it's a 'dead' subject which don't require understanding, but every mathematical formula has a very 'easy-to-understand' principle behind. However, this is missing out in schools due to the "results in shortest time possible" approach. This has created a situation where many students, except for minority of the cohort do not understand, thus they are unable do the questions confidently.

    Non-academic wise, I tend to do 'pep talk' with my students whenever I feel that they are losing sight of their goals and provide a listening ear for problems they face if they appeared to be bothered and they have no one to talk to. Ultimately, a student is still young and may face issues that they cannot resolve/figure out which will affect their focus.

    In summary, my teaching goal is to make students learn and understand what they are learning like it is part of everyday life experience. Thus making them appreciate and feel comfortable with the subjects they are learning.

    After going through their education, my ex students are still coming to me for advice etc and I have become family friends to quite a number of families due to the change the parents see in their child.
    Keeping Up with Curriculum
    I am constantly in contact with course mates from university who are teaching in various junior colleges and secondary schools. We exchange ideas and discuss about the lacking aspects in education in schools

    MOE has provided up-to-date details of syllabus requirement for each subject and each level.
    As a Good Tutor
    It is always my aim to be a mentor and a friend to my student.

    First, students are already learning under the stress in classrooms. It is not necessary to subject them to the same kind of stress during tuition. I tend to keep the lesson informal and encourage my students to interrupt and speak their thoughts whenever they deem necessary.

    Second, it is important as a mentor that I enforce basic discipline like lecturing my students whenever they misbehave or consistently losing sight of what they need to do during tuition and after tuition.

    Third, a tutor should point out that a student should study for the sake of learning what they do not know/are not familiar with instead of the goal of doing well for exams. It is important for them to understand that what they are learning is part of their life, visibly or invisibly and they should not study for the sake of exams which will often result in them forgetting' what they have 'learned'.

    Lastly, it is vital that a tutor should be able to suggest about possible future specialization the student can pursue based on their capabilities, after all a tutor has spent more time interacting on a 1-to-1 basis with the student than any school teachers.

    Parent/Student Comments
    I would like to give feedback on Mr James, he is my son's Math & Science tutor.
    I would like to give thanks to his teaching and helped my son to achieve significant improvement.

    Mr James is result oriented and responsible tutor.
    Math - improved from A to A*,
    Science - improved from B to A.

    I'm Mdm Zubaidah and I recently engaged Mr James Chew to tutor my daughter for her P6 Science.
    I am happy to report that she has improved in her Science grade (improved by 1 grade higher) and is more .
    confident with the subject now. Thank you Teacher James for all your help.

    My son had tremendous improvement especially Math after Mr James had taken over as his Math & Science tutor.
    Mr James had started teaching him when he was in P5. I could remember his math & science marks hovered around 65-70.
    After he was taught by Mr James, within a term his marks shot up to 80+.
    Recently, he just gotten his PSLE result, I am very pleased to say he had gotten A for Science & A* for Math.
    I truly believe that besides the kid needs to put on effort but getting a good tutor is very important.
    Though he might not be a ex or MOE teacher, doesn't mean he is not equally good.
    I was glad I had made the right choice & will continue to hire him as my son secondary tutor if require. - Ms Sophia

        A patient & committed tutor, and familiar with the pri maths & sc syllabus. Have taken many batches of pri & sec students and they have made great improvement in their examination scores; including 2 of my boys who were under my tutelage, have achieved top scores for their PSLE results. They are in the IP schools now.
        I believe in explaining to them the concepts behind every topic, which is the foundation & building blocks of the child knowledge. Coupled with mind mapping & application examples during the lessons would sustain a child interest & better understanding in that topic.
