The National University of Singapore (Mathematics)
Hi, I am a current Mathematics teacher, teaching in a private K-12 school at the bay area. As a Singapore certified teacher, I have over 10 years of tutoring and formal classroom teaching experience. I am fluent in English and Mandarin. I have prepared and conducted Mathematics, General Science, Chemistry and Physics lessons for students of ages 9 to 18 in preparation for national standardized test and Cambridge examinations (middle school, high school and college entrance exam).
I have strong passion in teaching and guiding students to achieve their academic goals, crave out their path of success and be a confident life-long learner.
My strong content knowledge and pedagogical skills are equipped from the following.
- NATIONAL UNIVERSITY OF SINGAPORE
Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Applied Mathematics, Minor in Physics
- NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF EDUCATION
Postgraduate Diploma in Education (Credit)
For the students to improve their grades effectively, I vary teaching approach to suit students’ learning style, ensuring conceptual understanding and strengthening their problem solving and critical thinking skills. Strong conceptual understanding allow the students to internalise the learning and commit it to their memory easily. I am capable of providing meaningful learning experience, effective learning guidance and scaffolding for students, enabling them to build on their prior knowledge and develop cognitively. I closely monitor and assess students’ learning and performance consistently. Students are provided ample practice with timely feedback, identifying their areas for improvements.
As efficient learning takes place when one is interested in the subject matter and takes ownership of their own learning, I engage students through various teaching pedagogies such as the concrete-pictorial-abstract approach, guided-discovery approach, and tools such as manipulatives, videos, simulations and games. To make learning relevant to them, students get to understand the real-world applications of the concepts.
To maximise learning opportunities, I encourage students to have an inquisitive mind, ask questions, explore alternative solutions and not to be afraid of making mistakes. I aim to provide a positive student-centered learning environment and motivate students in maintaining their positive learning attitude and working towards their targets.
I look forward to making learning enjoyable for the students in need, as well as those who are interested in Singapore Mathematics and Physics education.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I am fluent in English and Mandarin. I receive over 16 years of formal Chinese Language education, achieving distinction in O-level Higher Chinese. I have experience tutoring Chinese for a few years in Singapore.
