I am a very patient individual and I know first-hand how difficult it can be to learn an instrument as complex as the piano. As such, you can be assured that I will customise the lesson to match my teaching pace with your learning pace. And of course, we will learn your favourite songs too! Soon you might be composing your very own pieces.
I have been playing the piano since I was six, and passed my ABRSM Grade 8 practical examination in 2013. Since then, I have moved on to composing my own pieces and playing medleys of my favourite songs for leisure, though I still enjoy learning new pieces every now and then.

Perfect! Carina was impressively patient with the kids, pulling in varied tools to ensure the class is entertaining and educational. Kids remain interested throughout.
Abigail and Allison were a joy to teach! They were really enthusiastic throughout the entire lesson and were easy to engage. For a better learning experience on the piano, I would recommend investing in a digital piano with fully weighted keys (: Otherwise I had a great time, and hope that they did too!
Carina taught me Chinese, 2 years ago, when I was just Secondary 3 and preparing for my O Level Examinations. We had lessons weekly, and she prepped me extensively by giving my weekly Chinese lessons, and sharing with me an abundance of notes which she compiled for me. Although she did not have her set of notes that she prepared for herself since she didn't require extra materials for her own exams, she went online and sourced for other tuition agency materials through asking her friends for them. she really went the extra mile for me, and im glad to say that her tutoring really paid off! I got awarded an A1 in Chinese, and an A2 in Higher Chinese, which is equivalent to A* and A respectively. I am really happy about my grades :)
Carina is honestly one of the friendliest person I have ever seen! being a volunteer with her really reinforces this fact where she is patient and always have a smile on her face even when dealing with the most difficult of students. It always amazes me to see how much patience a human being can have. definitely recommend carina as a teacher to any one of your children/ you! if you're looking for one. her student has always achieved academic excellence. for example, a student jumped from a C/B- student to being an A- student in class. Her school teacher even praised her and awarded her with being the most improved student in her class!
I've been tutoring with Carina at our local (Singapore) tuition centre where we both tutored primary and secondary school children (aged 9 to 16 years) Chinese. Having both graduated from Nanyang Girls High School, we were able to use our Chinese skills to help improve each other's skills. Honestly, I have never seen someone as dedicated as Carina, and even passed tutoring time, she would spend extra time just to ensure that the student knows how to do the work before sending them off. This just shows her perseverance and commitment to teaching. She would go the extra mile to prepare extra pop quizzes and have small goodies as rewards. Carina has a heart of gold and if you were ever looking for someone to tutor Chinese, Carina's the right person.
