Information about Xiao Mei - Reservoir tutor - (7 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Xiao Mei:
I first began tutoring when I was in University. The tutoring experience made me realise that I love interacting with children and passing on knowledge, values and life skills to them. Therefore, I applied to be a primary school teacher once I graduated and I have been teaching in a primary school ever since. I currently have seven years of experience in teaching.
School leaders and colleagues have commented that I set excellent routines and class rules to ensure my pupils are able to learn in a conducive environment. At the same time, I show my pupils warmth and provide an encouraging learning environment. My lessons are systematic and well-paced according to the understanding and abilities of the children. My pupils are motivated to learn and find my lessons interesting.
I was identified by school leaders to specialise in Mathematics and joined the school’s ICAN (Improving Confidence and Achievement in Numeracy) pilot programme for pupils weaker in numeracy skills after 2 years of teaching. I also went on to be an ICAN mentor to new teachers subsequently.
Many people have commented that I have a calm and patient personality so if you're looking for a tutor with such traits, you've met the right person!
Mathematics: 7 years
English: 5 years
Chinese: 2 years
English is my first language and Chinese is my second language. I took Higher Chinese in primary and secondary school. I believe in life-long learning and picked up a little Japanese Language in my university years too. :)
I usually link what pupils learn in books to real life applications as it will make learning more meaningful for them. I frequently use examples, stories and manipulative to teach my pupils. It makes it easier for them to understand concepts and enhances the fun level in lessons.
I also believe in building good rapport with my pupils as it helps me to understand my pupils' needs as well as the learning style that best suits them.
