Commitment / Other Details
I am able to start teaching any time, and am able to commit to tuition assignments for as long as needed.

I have experience teaching ADHD students, and offer reasonable rates. All materials are provided by me and I do not require students to buy any additional items except stationery (must have highlighters).

My schedule is negotiable, and arranged on first-come-first-served basis, with existing students already occupying certain slots.
Rapport Building
I spend time talking to them, and keep the parents updated about their child's progress. It is not so much about the amount of time spent building rapport, but the quality of the rapport built. I have to admit that I don't have any particular techniques, but yet I am friends with many of my ex-students and their parents, so I'm sure that something works!
Keeping Up with Curriculum
I am constantly in touch with friends who are still teaching, and have all the details about the latest programmes and syllabus changes.

In addition, I update my materials every year, so my students have access to shared exam papers, up-to-date practice materials and also content curriculum that I collate on my own so that they need not spend too much time researching the materials that they need.
As a Good Tutor
I believe that good tutors help to motivate students, and help to clear the doubts that students have. Many students are not sure what they are supposed to do, or how to get it done. A good tutor should be able to explain the steps clearly.

Each student has their own learning pace and style, and must receive tuition that suits their strengths while teaching them more about their weaknesses.

Moreover, with the tight schedules that students have nowadays, being punctual is very important.

Most of all, a good tutor should care for their students, and be firm where it is needed but also gentle. Students are all in the process of growing up, and need guidance.
