"Setting your children on the path of lifelong learning."
My formal teaching experience includes teaching primary school English for a year when I was in junior college and teaching speech and drama to secondary schools. I currently have two students learning English from me. I also have working experiences in the communications, editorial, education, and performing arts industries. As such, I believe I have the right skill sets to help students to improve their English and writing skills. Furthermore, my training in philosophy would be especially useful for those who need more help in argumentative writing.  My main goal is not merely to help the student score well in their exams, but to develop a certain love of language which will help them in the long run. I believe that tailoring one's lessons to merely do well for the next test is myopic, and the lessons will be quickly forgotten. But once someone has an interest in how language works, regardless of how weak they are, they would be self-motivated to improve.
"We would like thank teacher Isaac for his dedicated training on my son. We have observed significant boost in our son’s English language abilities after receiving professional training from him. Teacher Isaac is very good at motivating students to think actively. And his genuine care for the students is very impressive." ~Mother of a P1 boy (taught for one year)
I graduated with second class honours (upper) in Philosophy from the National University of Singapore. I also took a second major in Theatre Studies.
