I have a total of 8 years of teaching experience and has been teaching part time since my university days and after work hours when I was working full time jobs. I have taught several PSLE students before and my students have improved between the range of 10 to 60 marks under my teaching.
I prepare the content before each lesson in order to maximise my time with the student. For materials, I use school papers to teach for both maths and science because they’re the most in line with actual examination questions. For science, I normally use youtube videos and simple educational props if the student has difficulty understanding concepts. I always aim to help my student understand rather than memorise.
When they understand the concept fully, they can solve different types of questions under that topic. It’s also important to identify and drill them on their weak areas.
