My Value Proposition

I believe that the Singapore education system has a major flaw—students are only taught what to study, but not how to study.

My passion is guiding students (who were akin to my former self—wanting to succeed, but not knowing how to succeed—achieve academic excellence by helping them improve their mental health. I focus on cultivating motivation & discipline, as well as building a strong foundation of learning strategies critical for the Singapore National Examinations.

With a specialisation in Biology, English Langauge, and Chinese Language, I have successfully guided students to significant grade improvements within a short period. My online tutoring classes are highly effective, leading to measurable results.

The efficacy of my coaching pedagogy can be attributed to the 4 core areas of coaching that I prioritise, in order of importance:

Tier 1: Mental Health Mastery—Helping students develop mastery over their mental well-being. Topics covered include understanding the distinction between motivation and discipline, the importance of setting priorities and goals, techniques for setting SMART and HEART goals, the significance of working hard to achieve goals, strategies for improved focus during learning, and more. These topics provide students with clarity in their mindset, resulting in a remarkable enhancement in their academic performance.

Tier 2: Effective Learning Mastery—Equipping students with effective learning techniques and exam preparation strategies. Topics encompass the use of high-yield learning strategies, such as creating projects and synthesising information from various sources to supplement learning. Additionally, students are guided in practising examination papers to simulate the test-taking environment. Meta techniques, such as reflecting on learning strategies, are also taught.

Tier 3: Subject Matter or Language Mastery —Ensuring students achieve mastery in their specific subjects or languages. This involves in-depth coverage of the subject matter or language intricacies. The application of Tier 1 and Tier 2 techniques is heavily emphasised during learning and revision sessions.

Tier 4: Effective Test-Taking Techniques Mastery
