I have a structured approach to tutoring and believe that it is important for students to learn concepts sequentially in order to gain complete understanding of a subject. My tutoring sessions involve a lot of application where students can complete problems, worksheets, and homework. I believe the best way to learn is through practice.

My primary goal is to understand what the student needs and how they learn. Once we establish a basis of how we will work together, I help as needed to support ideation and problem solving. My goal is to be a resource, not a crutch, for students and to help them feel confident in their subjects.

The student always comes first! I think it’s important to stick with what works with them rather than forcing a study technique they don’t resonate with. I prioritise getting to know their study strengths and seeing how we can improve them. Of course, one of my favourites is active recall. I like to do this by testing each other with verbal and written questions, so students can go through the same process they’ll encounter in an exam but in a relaxed environment with me.

With a teaching style centered on individualized instruction, I ensure that each student's unique needs and learning preferences are met. By tailoring lessons and approaches to suit their strengths, I aim to foster an environment where students feel empowered and motivated to excel. Going beyond the traditional student-teacher dynamic, I strive to establish a friendly rapport with my students, creating a comfortable and supportive atmosphere. By building meaningful connections, I believe in making learning a fun and enjoyable experience, encouraging students to actively participate, ask questions, and explore their full potential. With me as a tutor, students can expect a personalized and engaging learning journey that combines academic progress with the joy of education.

Before classes, I make sure to prep myself and organize a routine/schedule for what I will be doing with my students for that session. I also ensure to include breaks in between sessions especially for younger students as they tend to have shorter attention spans. Instead of just pure teaching I also make sure to make classes interactive. I give them a space to voice their opinions, ask questions, and learn how to apply what they've learned to real-life situations/scenarios. My experience in studying psychology has also taught me effective study techniques like spaced practice, retrieval practice, and many others which I would share with my students.

I make sure to tailor my lessons to each student based on subject, level, age, learning style, and priorities. In the first meeting, I get a gauge of these factors so that I can formulate a thorough and personalized lesson plan can help my student achieve his/her academic goals. Outside of the sessions, I maintain constant communication with my students, following up on any doubts, questions, assigned homework, or material. During sessions, I make sure to be efficient by combining lecture-style with practice-style so that the student can grasp the information while asking clarifying questions and then apply his/her knowledge to questions. Of course, this varies based on the subject being taught and the age group. For instance, if I am tutoring a young student in French, I would include interactive activities and speaking, listening, writing, and reading opportunities, but if I am tutoring an older student in an AP class, the sessions would be faster-paced and more full of content.

In general, my aim is to make learning both interesting and rigorous for students so they can simultaneously achieve the results they want while also developing a curiosity for the subject. I enjoy getting to know my students as individuals and learners so I can support them to the best of my ability by tailoring my teaching approach to their unique needs. In a typical session, I will try to address any gaps in their current knowledge of the course material using both school-provided and private resources, before returning to reinforce those concepts at a later session.

Learning and receiving an education is no easy feat. There are certainly challenges when it comes to both the teaching we receive, as well as our interpretation and retention of the material we are taught. That is primarily why my tutoring approach revolves around flexibility—adapting to individual styles and needs for learning, and changing my teaching rather than a student's preferred learning methods. In this way, I can build confidence in my students whilst simultaneously teaching them more efficient ways to absorb and genuinely understand the information they are asked to learn. I often ask for learning materials beforehand to truly familiarize myself with the subject before going into teaching, and plan multiple methods of explanation and practice to ensure a holistic learning experience. A typical session for a subject such as math or science begins with a revision of old test papers or homework from the week that gave the student trouble, followed by an explanation of key concepts and strategies for improvement. Lastly, the remainder of the session would be filled with time to practice and apply the skills and content the student has just been taught or introduced to.

My main goal is to encourage students to be passionate about what they’re learning. I do this by creating lesson plans filled with fun reading and activities, and tailoring the lesson to the students unique interests. My teaching style is interactive. I often engage students in thoughtful conversation to help them develop their ideas or understanding. When tutoring English, I help students develop a solid foundation of knowledge. I often work with students to review parts of speech and types of sentences. With older students, I help them improve the cohesion and clarity of their writing.

My methodology in teaching focuses on catering to the student’s specific needs. When it comes to teaching English, I draw from my own experience; choosing books and writing prompts that will spike the student’s interest and inspire them to view English studies as a hobby rather than just homework.My approach to teaching maths is more hands on. I bring in personalised worksheets and exercises that will draw their attention and create an exciting learning environment. Beyond teaching syllabus content, I focus on problem solving techniques that the student can apply to various areas of study.

The core of my teaching philosophy is to foster a passion for the topic at hand — I believe this is the key to effective, lifelong learning. I usually begin with an interactive approach to introduce topics, followed by allowing many opportunities to ask questions and practice newly acquired skills/knowledge. My tutoring aims to ensure a multi-faceted yet in-depth understanding of theoretical concepts, as well as how to apply these concepts in real-life and academic contexts.

Throughout my academic journey, I've encountered my fair share of ineffective tutors who failed to teach me effectively. I've also had tutors who, although knowledgeable, made me develop a dislike for the subjects I was learning. Now, as I step into the role of a tutor myself, my goal is to not only provide effective teaching but also serve as a positive mentor for my students.To achieve this, I recognize the importance of adapting to each student's unique needs and learning style, rather than imposing a rigid, one-size-fits-all approach. By tailoring my teaching methods to the individual, I hope to create a sense of serenity and foster a genuine love for learning in my students. Building a strong mentor-student bond is equally important to me.However, while I strive to adapt and create a positive learning experience, I understand that there may be instances where a student's mindset clashes with our shared goal of learning. In such cases, I will maintain a firm approach while keeping their best interests in mind.Drawing on my avid interest in psychology and the knowledge I have gained, I will employ various strategies that not only help students reach their academic potential but also support their personal growth. Each session will typically begin with addressing any questions about the material and discussing any assigned homework. From there, I will proceed with the lesson plan prepared prior to the session.By combining my passion, knowledge, and adaptable teaching approach, I aim to empower students to not only excel academically but also unlock their full potential as individuals.

When it comes to teaching, especially in a tutoring setting, it is crucial to build a collaborative partnership with my student. As mentioned in my biography, I feel that education should be something that excites students. So I tend to open my lessons by getting to know my student, to gain a better understanding of what type of learner they are and ultimately try to connect their genuine interests to their education. Beyond forming a collaborative partnership with the student, I also try to work with their parents to gain a better understanding of what they are hoping to get out of these lessons. Whether it simply be better grades or study habits, I always do my best to satisfy my clients needs. I also try to make myself available through email with my students, so they can communicate any queries they may have outside of designated class times. As I understand that an hour or two every week may not be sufficient.

I believe actively engaging with students and tailoring my teaching approach to meet their individual needs is very important. I utilize interactive discussions, hands-on activities, and visual aids to make learning both enjoyable and relatable. As a TA for the HKIS Hum 1 in Action course, I have honed my ability to support students in their learning process and adapt to individual learning needs. Before each session, I gather information about their current and upcoming topics to ensure the student's preparedness. I recognize that students have different learning preferences, so I provide auditory learners with clear explanations and engage in meaningful discussions, while incorporating visual aids and mnemonic devices for those who benefit from them.

I am most familiar with the IGCSE syllabus. My tutoring approach is very flexible, as I tailor my approach to each student depending on their weaknesses. While I believe that education is rooted in fundamental understanding and not solely revolved around exams, I also understand the importance of exam technique and preparation. With my guidance, I aim to equip my students with the necessary skills and strategies to excel in their exams while fostering a deeper comprehension of the subject matter. By combining a strong foundation of knowledge with effective exam techniques, I strive to help my students achieve academic success both in and beyond the exam room. To ensure that I can provide the best possible support to my students, it would be helpful for them to share their syllabus and any unfamiliar topics they would like assistance with. This way, I can prepare tailored lesson plans and resources specifically designed to address the areas that require additional attention, ensuring that my students receive targeted guidance and support. If preferred, I am more than happy to provide my students with supplementary materials that can further enhance their learning experience. Whether it's worksheets or practice questions, I am dedicated to helping my students consolidate their knowledge and build their skills outside of our tutoring sessions.

I try to be more flexible with the way I tutor, as I believe that in many cases the student knows how and what they want to learn. Typically, my lessons start with schoolwork review, as I think it sets the groundwork and allows me to run parallel with the material at school. Then, I try to teach new, and more fun content, whether it be a very niche historical topic or ways to argue better. Of course, I always try to customize and improve every lesson, and am always open to trying new methods to help and support students.

I believe that students learn best when they interact with their material, whether through flashcards, games, or mind maps. In my Chinese classes, I like to break down my student's material into bite-sized chunks for them to process, and we play games with the new vocabulary to familiarize them with the words. Whenever I feel that they are getting distracted or bored, I switch approaches and try a new way to help them out, whether it be watching a video or singing a song. For students who are not native speakers, I speak to them in Chinese and then repeat the same thing in English to expose them to more vocabulary. In my Math classes, I structure my lessons based on my students' questions with homework and work from there. I spend half the time working through practice problems with them, backtracking whenever they feel lost. Then, I summarize the main takeaways from our lesson and come up with a few problems for them to practice. I try to let my students try the questions a few times before I step in and give them hints, giving them time to recall their knowledge and practice their skills.
