    SAT & ACT Test Preparation, General English tutoring

    I am a Linguistics student waiting to enter university and I have experience as a test taker as well as test prep tutor. In 2016, I scored a full composite score of 36 for my ACT, and obtained a score of 1580 for the new SAT in 2016 as well. I have experience in test prep tutoring in Singapore for both SAT and ACT, and two of my students have gone on to score full scores for the ACT this year.

    I also can provide test prep for SAT Subject Tests (SAT II), in the areas of Mathematics and Literature. I scored 800 for Math II and 770 in Literature in the November sitting of the SAT Subject Test.

    Otherwise, I am a native English speaker from Singapore, and have obtained 'A's in English Language for the GCE Ordinary Level Examinations, and an 'A' in General Paper (a writing and comprehension intensive subject) in the GCE Advanced Level Examinations. I am competent in providing general English language tuition to teenagers and young adults.

    Other than native English, I have Japanese N4 level proficiency, and have studied Mandarin since elementary school in Singapore.

    About Me

    I am an aspiring educator whose main teaching interests lie in language education. My main academic interests are linguistics and language acquisition, which I will pursue in university.

    My personality has been described as bright and frequently charismatic. I strive to apply these traits in teaching, and strongly believe in building reliable teacher-student support networks as well as a conducive classroom environment.

    Right now, I am living by myself in Tokyo until February 2017, and am seeking part-time, informal employment in language and test prep teaching.

    B.A. in Linguistics, University of Pennsylvania, 2017-2021
    GCE Advanced Levels, Hwa Chong Institution, 2013-2014 (Earned Distinctions in General Paper, Geography, Economics, Literature in English, Mathematics and Project Work)

    Experience / Qualifications

    I was an intern at Indigo Education Group in Singapore, a premiere supplementary lessons center conducting examination revision lessons for secondary and pre-university students. I developed curriculum materials as well as did relief teaching.

    I also did freelance tutoring as an ACT Test Prep Coach for a class of 5 students, of which all posted scores of above 32 (the maximum is a 36), while two of them obtained the highest possible 36. Other than the ACT, I also offered freelance tutoring in GCE Ordinary Level Mathematics.

    Most of the inventions and scientific data published in English. Knowledge on scientific terms in English is necessary to understand those papers. If you need to publish the research work, most of the good journals are in English. In order to publish your work, need to write it in scientific way.

    English and Italian lessons(TEFL/Tesol certified, bilingual)
    I use TPR(Toatal Phisical response) a method of teaching language or vocabulary concepts by using physical movement to react to verbal input, Total physical response is often used alongside other methods and techniques. It is popular with beginners and with young learners, although it can be used with students of all levels and all age groups. a very effective way of learning a language quickly.
