Chemistry (American Curriculum or Advanced Placement or Pre-IB or IB)

Educational Certificates and Awards
Ministry of Education Teaching Scholarship (1998)
Graduated from National University of Singapore, Bachelor of Science (2004)
Graduated from Nanyang Technological University, Post-Graduate Diploma in Education (2005)
College Board - AP Chemistry (2019)
College Board - AP Calculus AB (2019)

I have taught in an IBDP independent school for 5 years in Singapore, as well as in an American School offering APs for 5 years in Taiwan. I’m certified to teach in both courses. I was an EE supervisor while in the IBDP school for all 5 years. I was also a Chemistry Olympiad coach when I was at that school, as well as a pioneer teacher for an Accelerated Class for Science, which is a talent development program.

Teaching was my first job and I love it. Interacting with students is the greatest joy besides helping them to learn and at the same time enjoy learning. I love Mathematical problems because they are like puzzles. Once I have the keys (concepts or relationships), I just have to figure out how to use them. It's almost like an escape room or jigsaw. Once I figure out how the pieces fit, there is the sense of satisfaction of solving it. Mathematics trains us in being resilient, systematic and logical thinkers and at times, our imagination and creativity.

Science on the other hand, teaches us about ourselves and the world around us - how we interact with each other, how we interact with the world and how other objects or living things interact with each other. The joy of discovery keeps me going. It's always fun to discover something new. Of course, I love the experiments too. It never ceases to amaze students when they see how chemical reactions create something new, change in color, gases, light and heat, and how these can be useful in everyday life. It also teaches us to be respectful of natural laws and be good stewards of the earth and its resources.

About Me

I'm from Singapore and have been in Taiwan for 5 years. I love living here and the community is amazing. I was a student from elementary to college in Singapore and graduated from the National University of Singapore and has taught Math and Science for 15 years. I have taught the International Baccalaureate program for 5 years as well as the Advanced Placement program so I'm familiar with both. My interests besides math and science includes volleyball, ice skating, watching anime and Korean or chinese drama series with martial arts.

I like to get to know my students as individuals with unique personalities, talents and challenges, and interact with them as more of a mentor. I hope that parents can see me as such, and less of just providing a service for a fee.

Get learning Maths, English and Science up to GCSE level
I specialise in tutoring science, maths and English (GCSE and ESL) all subjects are taught up to GCSE level or lower depending on child's age. My goal is to keep students challenged, but not overwhelmed. I assign homework after every lesson and provide periodic progress reports making sure the parents/carers are involved in the learning of the child and to track their progress too.

Oliver
Physics / Science / Mathematics tutor - IGCSE / IB MYP and DP
I am an interactive teacher of 5 years experience in schools. I have been a tutor for 13 years. I have taught physics and astronomy / astrophysics at university and have studied in science, education and science communication. My way of teaching is friendly and open, but clear and direct. I use lots of materials and interactive simulations and conceptual learning where possible. My abilities in education are incredibly strong and online getting better everytime I tutor. Given the previous situation with Covid. Online teaching has become second nature and I am happy to help your learning online. Teaching methodology: In order to teach a student effectively, it cannot simply be a matter of taking notes or going over the same material again and again. Students need time to connect concepts by approaching subjects from many angles. It takes practice and skill to make learning in a classroom interesting. I have been developing those skills over many years and continue to try and do so as I teach and learn myself!

Physics Problem-Solving: Strategies and Application !
Solving Word Problems in Physics is an essential skill to pass any physics course. In this class we focus on developing those skills. There are strategies for that. It is not a random approach. You can learn it. You will be taught how to translate a bulk of text into meaningful diagrams and variables that can be used to obtain and calculate a physical quantity. You will learn how to use which equation and where. The gap in your mathematical knowledge will be filled to tackle any physics problem.

Methodology and Applications Mathematics Course
Mathematics, a fundamental discipline which requires a lot of skill and rigor from an early age, is our focal point par excellence for forging scientists. Likewise the physical sciences which are the applications of the first gray of the sciences. I am an experienced middle and secondary school teacher of Mathematics with over 10 years of experience. I took on several challenges with students losing their bearings or lacking self-confidence with distance school supervision. Teaching science is a profession of passion, a burden that we are not very passionate about. I am very available and very attached to the smiles of a student and his parents filled with joy by satisfaction. At your disposal to take up major challenges. Thank you College: 6th to Terminale

Oral expression is also an important point of my teaching (precise vocabulary, use of different times ...) I also teach science. I correct the work at the end of the cycle (11ème, matu, and Hautes écoles). (both orthographic and semantic)

Sophie
IB Higher Level Biology and Chemistry. GCSE Level Biology and Chemistry.
I can provide tutoring for IB HL or GCSE level Biology and Chemistry. This will involve going through exam technique as well as explanation of tricky topics. Revision techniques will also be provided. This will include which topics are most essential, personalised guidance to study techniques which work for you and general advice. The teaching will be catered to how you learn and what you find most difficult. Each lesson we will focus on one area and then build upon that in future lessons. This method allows for layering of knowledge and skill causing steady improvement which is solid. These skills of memorisation, exam technique and essay writing within the sciences are not only useful for your exams, but are essential skills for anyone hoping to pursue a career in science/research.

Biology teacher from primary level to understate level
Hello, I am an enthusiastic and driven tutor who specialises in biology and genetics from secondary education all the way to undergraduate level. I graduated last year with a first-class Biology degree from one of the UK's top universities. I also received full marks in my Biology A-Level. My teaching style is direct, detail-orientated and tailored to your specific requirements. I have a wealth of previous tutoring experience. I have studied learning and development in detail, which puts me in an excellent position to give learning strategies, exam preparation and motivation advice. During my own time at university, I have learned that knowledge is no use without correct application. As such, I encourage all my students to bring out their full potential through their exam technique and planning skills.
