Personal Description:

I am a third-year undergraduate in UCL, majoring in Psychology and Language Sciences. Having had extensive experience working with children, it has always been my priority to create a trusting relationship with children and parents, and to maintain a friendly and encouraging environment throughout, so that children can benefit most from my tutoring sessions and will always feel comfortable asking for help.

I am currently on the faculty's Dean's List and received a Student Achievement Award last year. I graduated from high school with 40/45 in IB (higher levels: Economics, History, Biology; standard levels: Chinese Literature, English Literature, Maths), and 9a*1a1b in IGCSE (English, English Literature, Mathematics, Additional Mathematics, Chinese, Biology, Chemistry, Physics (double sciences), History, Geography, Business Studies & Art: Textiles).

Tutoring Experience:

I have been tutoring since 2013, mostly on mathematics and general homework with primary school children.

I have also ran math tutoring programs in the Philippines for 2 weeks back in 2015, in which I was part of the team organising and delivering a series of math afternoon clubs for primary and secondary school children.

I was a summer camp facilitator in Japan in 2015, and one of my main responsibilities was to assist in daily math lessons: to explain complex mathematics concepts and exercise problems one-on-one, and to make sure every participant was on track with the lesson progress.

Tutoring Approach:

Before each tutoring session, I would always communicate with students/parents beforehand for lesson plans or any special requirements.
For younger children, I would always like to know about their personality and particular topics that they tend to struggle with. One of my main goals in addition developing academic knowledge is to build rapport with my students.

For general homework, I would usually let students decide what they want to work on first (if there are no special requirements) and tend to go with their preferred order of things. Depending on each student's attention span, I sometimes change tasks every 10-15 minutes and then go back to the previous tasks towards the latter half of the session to finish up. I believe it is crucial to ensure students' focus and interest in what we are working on.

For specific subjects, I would always ask about the lesson plan / general topic beforehand so that I can come prepared. After explaining the essential concepts, I think one of the most effective way to learn is to work on actual problems / examples, and so I would always look up past papers (if possible) or come up with my own example problems / essay titles to work on with students during the session.
