I’m Kevin, one of the top students who graduated with 8 A1′s in the 2007 O’ Levels and 8 distinctions in the 2009 A’ Levels. I have been offered a Stat board scholarship to study Economics in London, as well a bond-free scholarship at NUS for the double-degree programme, Law & Economics. I am currently a Chemistry tutor at my alma mater (a top junior college) while awaiting university enlistment.
As the top student of both my secondary school and Junior college, I evaluated and analyzed past year papers, spotting trends and studying the way testers go about setting the cambridge examinations. By observing the trends and integrating my personal insights, I developed for myself a set of techniques and exam skills that assisted me in getting those distinctions.
What I can offer:
- Personalized tuition, catered and tailored to the student's strengths and weaknesses. I am not a supporter of group tuition, with 20-30 students in each class, suffocating the students of attention and focus from the teacher. The teacher has to give sufficient attention to students' weaknesses, adapt the class to his learning needs and provide progressive learning.
-Tips to watch out for. Often, school teachers are bounded by bureaucracy- they are risk adverse and are often afraid to 'spot' questions. While i'm not an advocate of last minute revision coupled with spotting, analyzing past trends and anticipating questions go a long way in helping prepared students push their B to an A.
During my free time, I pen down my thoughts onto a blog, that includes personal tips, anecdotes and free GP and Economics resources for students. Potential students, or parents scouting for their children, are advised to visit the blog where I share my take on the education system, my analysis of examination strategies and insights regarding tuition.
