Personal Description:

I am a Year 2 medical student studying at Imperial College London. I was educated in Methodist Girls' School (Singapore) from Years 7-10, followed by Hwa Chong Institution (Singapore) for Years 11-12. I topped my cohort in both Years 7 and 8. Additionally, I obtained 9A1s for English, Chinese, Malay, Higher Malay, Mathematics, Additional Mathematics, History and Social Studies (Combined Humanities), Chemistry, Physics, and 2A2s for Biology and Geography for the Singapore-Cambridge GCE O Level exam. As for my A Levels, I obtained straight As for H2 Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, Economics and H1 Project Work.

Besides academics, I am actively involved in various extracurricular activities. I am currently in the Imperial College School of Medicine (ICSM) Boat Club, and have participated in several rowing competitions. As I am deeply passionate about Maths and Science, I often participated in various olympiads and competitions such as the Singapore Mathematical Olympiad and Australian Mathematics Competition. I also held leadership positions in school - I was the head prefect of my secondary school and a Staff Sergeant in the Girls' Brigade (1st Coy Singapore). Furthermore, I have been granted various awards for all-round excellence, such as the Wee Kim Wee Award, Seah Boon Thong Book Prize, Student Leadership Award (Distinction).

I can also offer help with the UKCAT, BMAT as well as interview preparation for medical school.

Tutoring Experience:

In secondary school, I did voluntary peer-tutoring for Mathematics and prior to entering university, I was employed by a homeschooling centre in my hometown, Malaysia, to teach IGCSE/GCSE Mathematics, Additional Mathematics, Chemistry and Biology as well as A Level Maths, Chemistry and Biology. My students successfully obtained As for the abovementioned subjects in their recent IGCSE and A Level exams. I also have experience teaching students with ADHD and can cater to the needs of students with similar conditions.

Tutoring Approach:

I aim to provide a solid grounding in the subject while paying close attention to the needs of the individual. I don't demand that students do extra worksheets and homework that are not part of the student's Maths/Science class, but rather, I coach the student in areas of his/her Maths/Science class that may be difficult such as clarity and depth of comprehension, application of concepts, and test-taking strategies. All that I do is directly related to helping the student to better understand the material from the Maths/Science class that she/he is taking, and to improve the grade in that class. My approach varies depending on the studentโ€™s needs and learning style. However my teaching philosophy is based on encouraging students to think for themselves, using real-world examples wherever possible. I start from topics the students are comfortable with and move gradually towards more complex areas as their confidence builds. I use questions and examples to check understanding continually. I believe passionately in the huge value of tutoring to students and take great satisfaction in seeing my students achieve their full potential.
