What I can offer
I assure worried parents that their children will achieve significantly improved English grades (success rate 100%) and give them proper guidance by offering intensive and targeted English coaching at both the primary and secondary levels. My classes are always exciting as I use a variety of tools such as interesting current affairs articles, you-tube videos, mind-maps, vocabulary, grammar games and literary devices to enrich and motivate my students.
My teaching strategies
Focus on What Your Kids Need
One-to-one English Tuition gives the opportunity to follow a lesson that is entirely tailored to the children requirements. I teach your child to approach the English examination paper in a systematic and strategic manner to optimize exam scores. Materials that cover topics, methods, techniques and processes are given so your child can handle the increasingly complex content and tasks throughout primary and secondary school.
Accelerated learning progress
Adding English Tuition to your child’s existing school lesson will greatly boost your child’s learning progress and achieve the maximum benefits. Comprehension, Composition, Grammar and Vocabulary worksheets targeting your child’s weak areas are provided and reinforced gently for maximum understanding.Frequent practices, skill-based modules, and content based on real-world issues help your child learn what’s needed for school and enjoy learning.
A Boost in Confidence
Some children feel very shy and self-conscious when speaking English in a classroom full of students. Children who learn English with me feel encouraged and motivated thus making their learning positive and productive. Children are taught public speaking strategies and presentation skills. There are oral discussions to hone the student’s conversational and oratorical skills.
In my English Tuition lessons, children are encouraged to ask many questions and play an important part in their learning process. Our curriculum develops answering strategies and skills such as writing techniques and clue identification for both Papers 1 and 2. I have a set system in place for students to work on their grammar and vocabulary skills. More practice exercises are given for students who need additional assistance.
Preparing for the Important Examination
As a MOE-trained Teacher and an English Tutor, I am very familiar with the current MOE curriculum and will not waste time in lessons covering work that is not on the exam syllabus. I will assist your child to prepare for the important PSLE/O-level examination. Upon covering the relevant syllabus for your child, I will provide school exam papers for revision and reinforcement of learning for your child, explaining the correct concepts and approach in an exam situation.
Are results guaranteed?
Improvement in English can always come about by the student’s motivation and consistent hard work coupled with the guidance of the English Tutor. I would say that 100% of my students see improvement if they are committed to their learning. Please see my testimonials page for more information on satisfied students and their parents. My methods of teaching have successfully produced results for both my Primary and Secondary English Tuition students for 16 years running. With a proven track record, my assurance to parents is that their children are in good hands.
