"English proficiency for life."
My method of dealing with students varies depending on the age and maturity level of each individual, but I try to understand why the student is having difficulty with the subject. Usually, during the first lesson, I would spend some time talking to the student about their school life to find out more about what could be affecting their performance. During subsequent lessons, I continue to check up on how they are coping and whether they have any difficulties in any specific areas. I strive to be someone of authority in their life, someone they can be comfortable enough around to ask as many questions as they might need. I follow the MOE syllabus guidelines stringently and frequently buy and complete assessment books that comply with the examination standards to stay up to date on the current syllabus.
I have taught upwards of 40 students in total, ranging from Primary school pupils and O Level re-takers/private candidates to adult learners and foreign students. In 2016, I was preparing one student for PSLE and two for O Levels. The PSLE student achieved an A for PSLE English, improving from the B he was getting in school previously. Meanwhile, one of my O Level students attained a B3 in English after averaging a C6/C5 in school. The other finally passed English with a C6 after having taken it the past couple years with an E8/D7. In 2018, out of the three Sec 4 students I taught, two got A1 and one got A3 in the O levels. Currently, I’m teaching an IP2 student English Literature. Through our first month of lessons, he managed to improve a whole 6 marks for his essay, getting above 30 marks for the first time. I also have experience in teaching foreign students. Last year, I did extensive coaching for a 9-year-old student who was trying to pass the English proficiency exam conducted by Overseas Family School. She had failed the test the year before but managed to progress from level 1 to level 2 after our 6 months of lessons. My longest student was a Primary 5 girl whom I had taught since she was Primary 3 -- unfortunately, we had to end lessons, as I was due to head for overseas exchange. Despite this, I am glad to have seen her standard of English improve over time. When we first started, English was her worst subject, and it was no longer the case when we parted ways.
