I travel to these locationsParramatta, Bankstown, Newington,
I am a qualified school teacher, born as a Singaporean-Chinese and naturalized Australian citizen, with strong Cantonese clan ties with Tai-Shan, Guangzhou due to parental heritage links with motherland China. I have been teaching the last 40+ years, over a spectrum of English, mandarin and other humanity subjects across several national curricula of Singapore, Australia and New Zealand. I have been teaching English language and English Literature, Mandarin, General Science and primary Maths, both as a school teacher, tutor and assessment writer and marker to education bodies in Singapore. I taught for 3 years in Christchurch and 10 years in Sydney. My educational credentials have given me sufficient knowledge and training to teach such a broad spectrum of subjects and school levels.
I have helped tuition students achieve good to excellent grades in tests, assessments and projects, consistently over the last 10+ years in Sydney. I have the relevant linguistic skill-sets to hold up the learning needs of my students. I am confident in delivering good lessons for true learning to take place during tuition.
I am able to help students in English essay writing and preparation for school certificate and HSC exams. I can teach Mandarin phonics, conversation, sentence construction and story-writing to young children; I can teach school Mandarin at primary and intermediate levels to achieve mandarin proficiency.
