Chemistry (American Curriculum or Advanced Placement or Pre-IB or IB)

Educational Certificates and Awards
Ministry of Education Teaching Scholarship (1998)
Graduated from National University of Singapore, Bachelor of Science (2004)
Graduated from Nanyang Technological University, Post-Graduate Diploma in Education (2005)
College Board - AP Chemistry (2019)
College Board - AP Calculus AB (2019)

I have taught in an IBDP independent school for 5 years in Singapore, as well as in an American School offering APs for 5 years in Taiwan. I’m certified to teach in both courses. I was an EE supervisor while in the IBDP school for all 5 years. I was also a Chemistry Olympiad coach when I was at that school, as well as a pioneer teacher for an Accelerated Class for Science, which is a talent development program.

Teaching was my first job and I love it. Interacting with students is the greatest joy besides helping them to learn and at the same time enjoy learning. I love Mathematical problems because they are like puzzles. Once I have the keys (concepts or relationships), I just have to figure out how to use them. It's almost like an escape room or jigsaw. Once I figure out how the pieces fit, there is the sense of satisfaction of solving it. Mathematics trains us in being resilient, systematic and logical thinkers and at times, our imagination and creativity.

Science on the other hand, teaches us about ourselves and the world around us - how we interact with each other, how we interact with the world and how other objects or living things interact with each other. The joy of discovery keeps me going. It's always fun to discover something new. Of course, I love the experiments too. It never ceases to amaze students when they see how chemical reactions create something new, change in color, gases, light and heat, and how these can be useful in everyday life. It also teaches us to be respectful of natural laws and be good stewards of the earth and its resources.

About Me

I'm from Singapore and have been in Taiwan for 5 years. I love living here and the community is amazing. I was a student from elementary to college in Singapore and graduated from the National University of Singapore and has taught Math and Science for 15 years. I have taught the International Baccalaureate program for 5 years as well as the Advanced Placement program so I'm familiar with both. My interests besides math and science includes volleyball, ice skating, watching anime and Korean or chinese drama series with martial arts.

I like to get to know my students as individuals with unique personalities, talents and challenges, and interact with them as more of a mentor. I hope that parents can see me as such, and less of just providing a service for a fee.

Ayan
Biology teacher from primary level to understate level
Hello, I am an enthusiastic and driven tutor who specialises in biology and genetics from secondary education all the way to undergraduate level. I graduated last year with a first-class Biology degree from one of the UK's top universities. I also received full marks in my Biology A-Level. My teaching style is direct, detail-orientated and tailored to your specific requirements. I have a wealth of previous tutoring experience. I have studied learning and development in detail, which puts me in an excellent position to give learning strategies, exam preparation and motivation advice.

CLEP Exam Natural (Physical) Sciences Preparation with Experienced Teacher
Hi everyone! I have been teaching private courses in Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics for 9 years. It is my passion to prepare my students for the future with school and exam studies. When I won the Anatolian Teacher High School in Istanbul in 2008 and Boğaziçi University in 2012, my biggest goal was to be a reliable role model for my students in the future. I am very happy that I have now made this dream come true since the year I entered university. Until this time, I have taught private lessons at secondary, high school and university level to numerous students from Turkey and abroad. I still continue to give private lessons on the online platform and teach Physics at an International School in Istanbul where California Education Standards (Cognia) are adopted. It is my passion to prepare my students for the future with school and exam studies. I am currently teaching for SAT Exam Preparation. SAT Subject Tests includes Physics, Math, Chemistry and Biology. I can teach both IB and American Curriculum as well. I teach my lessons on Zoom, Microsoft Teams or Google Classroom, depending on the student' request. Inquiry Based Learning which I have adopted as a teaching method; it enables me to teach lessons based on inquiry and always keeping the student & teacher dialogue dynamic. I strive to progress depending on the age and level of the student. For this, I aim to explain myself, the way I study and understand my student's expectations and level. After the level has been determined, it is of great importance for me that the student knows the lesson plan and draft as well and adheres to the jointly agreed schedule. I share pdfs and documents that I have prepared before the class and use the books by Pearson, Serway, Nowicki, Sarquis and so on for University & Secondary School Level. For Middle School, I use HMH Science Modules etc. I do emphasize the importance on giving homework/assignment and return as giving ''feedforwards'' for my students. As someone in love with her job, it is my greatest motivation to direct the students to professions they can do with love. In this course, you will be able to learn following contents: Ch 1. Introduction to Natural Sciences Ch 2. Properties of Matter Ch 3. Fundamentals of Thermodynamics Ch 4. Mechanics Ch 5. Relativity Ch 6. Electricity Ch 7. Magnetism Ch 8. Waves, Sound, and Light Ch 9. The Universe Ch 10. Atmospheric Science Ch 11. Geology Ch 12. Biomolecules Ch 13. Biology of the Cell Ch 14. Biochemistry Foundations Ch 15. Chemical Nature of the Gene Ch 16. Cellular Reproduction Processes Ch 17. Introduction to Plant Biology Ch 18. Human Anatomy Ch 19. Animal Reproduction, Growth and Development Ch 20. Genetics Ch 21. Ecology Ch 22.

EASIER WAYS TO LEARN English + Biology - Chemistry - Physics + Mathematics - Accountancy - Business + History - French
1 == I have been teaching Far Easier Ways To Learn At School & Home since 1992. 2 == Ca 2012, I began to flow naturally into being able to make many students of EVEN LOW grades able to aim successfully FOR ONLY TOP GRADES - from my 1st lesson ! My achievements like : 2.1 == 7 A, A, A, A, A, A & A* - By A Lowest Set GCSE Boy - Cardiff High School - In JUST 6 Months Of My Tuition ! 2.2 == 100 % SUCCESS - Teaching DYSLEXIC Children - In RECENT YEARS ! 2.3 == 100 % SUCCESS - UNIVERSITY Personal Statements - Since I Began Years Ago !

Dr. Pradeepika
professional teacher as private tutor: PYP/ MYP - Science (Improve Grad)
My name is Dr. Pradeepika, Gold medalist and with 6+ years of experience as an assistant professor, faculty development training and school teaching/helping experience to students of various age groups. These years of experience in school support have allowed me to develop a methodology adapted to the needs and profile of the student. I offer support to students, who are struggling to find a way of working that suits them. Extrovert, bubbly, and above all, a lot of humor! I believe that everyone learns in his own way. This is why I do not have a rigid method but adapt to the contrary to the specificities of each student. I evaluate their level, strengths, possible weaknesses, or delays, and I develop my course accordingly. My priority: to restore the student's confidence: things are within everyone's reach when they are well explained! Active teaching methods: I try to involve the student as much as possible, to make him discover what works for him/her so that he can continue his career independently. Finally, I bring specific help when preparing questions or exams in a more difficult subject. My rate includes full tuition (private lessons, the ability to ask questions outside of class time, writing and correcting questions, etc.). The students learn best when they are in a positive and happy environment. By using the methods, I can develop a classroom that is supportive with fun. It is important for students to feel happy and comfortable with me so that they can develop the confidence to speak up and put forward their ideas. I believe every student needs to be challenged regardless of their ability. The more confidence students have, the better their chance is of succeeding.😇 Looking forward to reading from you!.

Sophie
IB Higher Level Biology and Chemistry. GCSE Level Biology and Chemistry.
I can provide tutoring for IB HL or GCSE level Biology and Chemistry. This will involve going through exam technique as well as explanation of tricky topics. Revision techniques will also be provided. This will include which topics are most essential, personalised guidance to study techniques which work for you and general advice. The teaching will be catered to how you learn and what you find most difficult. Each lesson we will focus on one area and then build upon that in future lessons. This method allows for layering of knowledge and skill causing steady improvement which is solid. These skills of memorisation, exam technique and essay writing within the sciences are not only useful for your exams, but are essential skills for anyone hoping to pursue a career in science/research.
