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.

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.

My tutoring approach is to make sure to teach the students to have good fundamentals. Having a good foundation in maths is very important in order to move onto the next level especially when you get older. Individualising the sessions is also very important as each student have different needs and have varying paces of learning. I will also help students to get to a point where they are good enough to teach someone else on a topic, which shows that they understand it well.

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.

University of Cambridge

With both standardized and AP tests, I often encourage my students to look beyond the content. I use questions beyond the test level to solidify my students' understanding and often ask them to explain concepts in their own words such that they can think about topics coherently in their own words.Following the supervision system Cambridge employs, I often lead students through more of a discussion, talking about topics in different ways to ensure their understanding and linking separate topics in such a way that they all mould together. Only when I feel that my students' understanding is at an appropriate level do I begin to present them with practice questions. By that point, these questions are second nature to them.

Ryan  Choi

My main goal when teaching is to not only enhance academic performance but to prepare my students for high school and beyond by intentionally challenging them. One technique that I find helps solidify understanding is asking the student to explain their thinking and going through the steps of a solution deliberately. I find that once a student is able to articulate WHY a certain method is used rather than just grinding through practice problems, real understanding and learning are achieved. I find that many students are often hesitant to make mistakes and to ask for help, while I encourage it as they are true signs of learning. I aim to create a welcoming and supportive experience for my students.

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.

As a tutor, my most important job is to boost the student's academic confidence, as I believe that academic confidence holds the key to optimized academic performance. I try to increase academic confidence through practice, repetition, and positive feedback. I also make sure to prepare several different methods to explain concepts; sometimes, explaining a concept one way does not stick to the student well, and as a tutor who emphasizes understanding over memorization (although memorization may sometimes be necessary), explanation of concepts in a way that students can understand is very important.

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.

In teaching math and science, I use a combination of demonstration and guided practice. I start by demonstrating the step-by-step process of solving a specific problem, ensuring clarity. The demonstration serves as a model for the student to understand the underlying concepts. Then, I encourage the student to independently solve a similar problem, applying their knowledge and promoting critical thinking. During this phase, I closely observe their progress and provide prompt assistance if needed. I create a supportive environment where students feel comfortable asking questions. Practice and repetition are essential, so I provide additional exercises that gradually increase in complexity. My approach aims to build a solid foundation, boost confidence, and foster a deeper understanding of the subject.In my approach to teaching Chinese, I prioritize addressing each student's specific needs. I begin by understanding where they require assistance and what areas they would like to focus on. For reading and comprehension, I encourage students to think critically about the text while reading it aloud, providing guidance and support as necessary. When it comes to composition, I teach students effective techniques for improving their writing skills. In terms of speaking, I actively encourage students to engage in conversation and push the boundaries of their knowledge. To enhance proficiency in pinyin and dictation, I employ a practice-based approach. I allocate time for the student to revise vocabulary by writing each word five times. Following this, I conduct dictation exercises, providing repetition and guidance when necessary.
