About Me

Let me introduce myself briefly. I am a citizen of USA, Switzerland and Peru. I speak five languages fluently. I have the proficiency certificate in English and German. I have previously studied my BA and MA in International Relations and Political Science in Paris, France and London, UK as I wanted to be a diplomat at first. In my early adolescence I grew up in Switzerland and in my early teens my parents decided to venture to Singapore where I graduated in the German School Singapore.

I slipped into the educational world pretty much by accident 5 years ago. Before, my career was in the business world in Singapore. I started as a tutor pretty much by chance and then followed up with a fast track teaching course in the most widely recognized teachers school in Zurich (PH) Switzerland. There I was trained as a primary teacher with the latest cutting edge tools in Pedagogy. Nevertheless I decided to focus on private teaching for the most prestigious international school in Zurich (Zurich International School) and other local Swiss Schools.

My overall aim is to nurture children from any age and background in almost every subject. What I am passionate the most is to be able to have a wide variety of kids who give me their trust to learn at their own pace with their wants and needs. It is essential to me that the child comes first. My overall teaching methods evolve around identifying and promoting the strengths of the childs personality and not focus on the deficits using my intuition and wide experience and background. In my experience, the most important outcome of any teaching assignment is for the child to create his or her own new learning strategies.

Patrick demonstrated confidence on the first meeting with my son, and hence the confidence spread to my son who got enthusiastic to continue the learning with him. Patrick was able to build my son’s motivation as well and knew how to establish the good interactions from the start.
Patrick is a very good and accesible teacher. We are very satisfied with the lessons.

Self-Esteem & Resilience Building Program - Leading to Better Grades, Better Mental Health & Better Future Prospects
A step-by-step tuition program that: Builds self-esteem Increases resilience Improves wellbeing Improves communication Improves study skills Resources provided include: -Mentoring -3D animation videos to explain concepts -Worksheets -Other supplementary materials This program has been turned into a workshop and will be delivered at both Oxford and Cambridge universities for first year students. Every student needs assistance to rebound after the pandemic and lockdowns. I have the expertise to get students back on track. I have tutored students from the most prestigious schools in the country as well as students internationally. Some of the students I have worked with have attended world renowned institutions like Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard & MIT. I have delivered talks at schools on student success and have authored four books on topics such as productivity, time-management, self-discipline & confidence. I have founded the first online personal development academy for teenagers (Nexgen Teens) based around a holistic approach to learning called The Nexgen Method which I created. I also create wellbeing & mental health resources for young people at schools and universities. My role is not only in preparing students for the future but it is giving them the confidence to shape it. My objective is to inspire, motivate and cultivate ambitious young students who have the ability to identify and fulfil their aspirations. I combine five interlinked components that, if worked on in tandem, can drastically change a students life for the better and aid them in becoming the pioneers of the future. These 5 strands are: 1) Mindset 2) Wellbeing Management 3) Study Skills 4) Life Skills 5) Leadership Development I place a special emphasis on personal development and this is what makes me different. I believe it is possible to equip students with the mindset and skillset to radically alter their lives for the better. My instruction goes beyond this by including study skills such as note-taking, memory improvement techniques, speed-reading, and effective revision into its program. These skills will stay with pupils and enlighten their entire academic tenure. Finally, my role is also about offering guidance to students in terms of their current issues, academic future and potential career paths. My educational system is a result of years of lessons I myself learned progressing through the academic arena all the way to university level. In addition, it encompasses all the research I have conducted in self-improvement, effective study skills and successful leadership. These methods have been tested and proven successful. I hope to impart this knowledge to the next generation and watch them do great things with it. Yours sincerely, Ash

Mina
English teacher with plenty of experience and patience
If you want to learn English language, I am here to help you. It is not difficult as it may look, but you have to be persistent if you want to reach your goal. Let me show you that English classes can be fun and studying can be interesting. I'm an English teacher for more than six years and I have plenty of experience. At the beginning of the course, studying material is particularly selected for each student depending on their level of knowledge. After the type of course is determined, focus is on the weak spots and improving whatever skill a student is lacking in. Speaking is always emphasized. In class students can suggest other materials, books etc and ask for lessons they want to study. Asking questions is always a good thing and cooperation between teacher and a student is crucial. If you agree, contact me and start your English course today! I'm looking forward to helping you learn English!

While my classes are 100% in English, I can also speak Spanish and some Italian words. This gives me a real insight as to why students make certain mistakes, and how to best avoid them. I really enjoy teaching and helping people improve and grow in confidence. We all learn at different paces and in different ways. My job is to give you the tools to learn and enjoy the process.

I had the priviledge to teach English in Bangkok, Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapore, India, Portugal and Poland I have run more than 70 education workshops/training.

This is to build their comfortability to make mistakes and be OK with it, so they can learn faster. Grammar and vocabulary will come during and after I sense a confidence in my students. My techniques are adopted from years of working in international education organisations with underprivileged and illiterate groups to fast track their ability to master and converse in English.
