I began teaching in 2012 as part of my on-field training as a teacher and currently with 8 years long teaching endeavors, I have successfully taught more than 50 students who primarily sought my guidance in mastering English language competency and exploring its depths within their designated curriculum namely IGCSE, IB, Australian syllabus, Canadian syllabus, Singapore syllabus, Mandarin medium Malaysian syllabus, and Standard Malaysian syllabus. In addition to covering English and English Literature, Conversational English and Business English are also offered under my tutelage for learners who wish to divulge into these facets of language practice for specific purposes.
Pedagogy, especially in teaching and learning of the English Language has fueled and nurtured the development of my personal identity as a pedagogue. With the specialization in the English Language and well-versed insight in its dynamics in instruction planning and implementing, I have alongside mentored students personally in the comforts of their home and learning needs in addition to catering to the development of the students I am responsible for in school. With the 8 years experience that I have ventured into this profession, I am proud to divulge the success I had in transitioning 18 failing students to ace their examinations and procure marks of 70 to 84% which was an elating success. On top of that, 22 of my IGCSE students have successfully obtained A's in English First Language, English as Second Language and English Literature respectively. Another interest of mine that I have developed an interest in is coaching Mandarin as first language speaking learners mostly who attend Mandarin medium local students and experience difficulty acquiring English in a similar fluency. Most of my Mandarin-speaking students expressed aversion to learning English as it is vastly different from their native tongue and the method in which they learn it to be very monotonous. However, I have managed to create individualized lessons and instructions for each of these students to motivate them to speak and write in English without the fear of being ridiculed or making mistakes. Naturally, English becomes lesser of a horde and more of a motivation and confidence boost. What truly celebrates my identity as a teacher is that I maintain an exclusive teaching approach that is specifically tailored to cater to the individual learning needs of my students and developing authentic, customized and reality-based learning materials for this cause to which my students have vastly responded positively in terms of interest, autonomy, and motivation in learning.
In terms of qualification, I have M.Ed and a first-class B.Ed (Hons) both with a major in TESL and planning to do my Ph.D. in the same field soon. Academically I have been a straight Dean's List award recipient during my Bachelor's years and did my Masters with an awarded scholarship from Taylors University. I was also an active participant during my time in university as Vice President of the Student Council where I had the opportunity of running a few charity events, social events, motivational talks, and annual dinners. I also successfully staged a play for the Drama & Literature component in my then course.
