My Teaching Experience:
I am a full-time tutor of 23 years focusing on Primary levels in English, Mathematics and Science. As such, I am very familiar with the syllabuses of all the three subjects.
Currently, I am teaching at a Tuition Centre and on 1-1 home tuition from Primary 1 to Primary 6.
In 2005, I decided to take a short break and embarked on this course in Certificate in Dyslexia Studies with Dyslexic Association of Singapore (DAS), where I am trained to teach with the Orton Gillingham (OG) approach, which is multi-sensory, kinesthetic and phonics based. OG method has been proven to help children with reading, spelling, writing and reading comprehension. This method of teaching is used on a 1-1 basis or in classes of max. 4 students. Each lesson is planned and paced according to the child’s needs.
I use a lot of materials to help my students with their English, Mathematics and Science. For English subject. I would cover on Oral, Composition, Spelling, Vocabulary & Grammar Cloze, Synthesis, MCQ & Open-Ended Comprehension.
Mathematics is best handled with good command of English, concepts, model-drawing and Mathematical skills, which requires understanding and also familiarity with certain mathematical formula and terms, so a lot of drill is necessary.
For Science, I would revise from Primary 3 and into the current topics with very clear, detailed explanation and question spotting.
I have many testimonies and I love to share of this boy, who was with me since Primary 3 to Secondary 2. His average scores were 50+ marks in his EMS subjects when he started with me and in his PSLE, he scored all A*. This is the reason why I am still teaching and have great joy doing it.
I also hope to be able to understand what inspires and drives the children in my care, so it is my goal to motivate them to own their goals to excel and ace in their examination through planning and disciplined work.
