Hey there! Thank you for taking the time to visit my profile!
My greatest passion in life is teaching! I was born and raised in Singapore and than moved to Adelaide ! I had the joy of doing Year 12 followed by doing my Degree in Bachelor of Science at Flinders University of South Australia. I went on to do my Honours in Science in Microbiology and Immunology in the University of Adelaide. I worked as a Research Scientist for 2 years and am at present doing my Masters in Teaching in Secondary at Flinders University of South Australia!
I did not have great experience at school, however due to amazing and unforgettable tutors who coached and guided me, I could enjoy and love my academic subjects! This is the foundation of my commitment to helping my students, whatever their abilities may be. My goal is to make subjects as engaging as possible and I use various platforms to do this. Models, PowerPoint, videos , drawings and worksheets.
I have been tutoring and teaching for 5 years in various settings – tutoring small and large groups, private individual tutoring, and teaching in home settings.
My specialities are general science from year 8-10 and year 11 and 12 Biology 🙂 . I am also familiar in tutoring English, Maths and Science for primary levels. Furthermore, I also have Montessori background and a diploma in Montessori!
Making students understand all aspects of the curriculum is my top priority but most importantly for them to enjoy the subject! This is achieved by teaching them in a fun, but studious manner! I have always been able to build good repo with my students, and I believe this is because I am able to cater my teaching to the needs of the student.
I charge $50-80 per hour depending on the year level and I also offer a free first half hour for the first lesson, that way you will be able to assess my skills and see if my teaching is comfortable for you. Part of my offering includes phone support and email support 7 days per week so should you have any questions throughout the week, I can offer you help as needed.
