Native Bilingual Singaporean with 15 Year Speaking Experience winning Championships in Competitions and Awards (新加坡双语言老师欢迎你!)

Methodology

In a 1-1 setting, I'm able to customise teaching materials and pedagogies based on the strengths and areas for improvements of each student. There is more interaction between the student and the tutor, which leads to better understanding and greater effectiveness in learning.

In the case of small group classes, students of similar standards and learning curves should be grouped together for a more conducive learning environment. Group work and quizzes can be incorporated into the lessons, making learning more enjoyable. Group classes also allows for a more vibrant learning environment where students can draw on collective knowledge.

At the end of the day, it is up to the individual to decide which mode of Chinese Tuition is more suitable based on his/her goals and learning style.

Experience

I am from Singapore and speak Mandarin as my mother tongue language. With huge emphasis that Singapore places on being bilingual, I have been learning Mandarin and English since Kindergarten (3 Years Old).

To continually engage students in the long run, creative and fun teaching methods are at times employed during lessons to make learning a more interesting experience.

In the course of learning, constant encouragement and affirmation are important for all students. The tutor who believes in the student helps the student to believe in himself/herself.

I devote a lot of time and energy to study the materials before lessons. The time for me to prepare one learning materials completely exceeds the time for class, and the learning materials will be updated continuously. As the saying goes: “只要功夫深,铁棒磨成针”, I believe that only diligence, persistence and reflection can do a good job.

Tanya is extremely patient and motivating in her teaching/mentoring. Under her guidance for almost 3 years, i learnt many things not simply by direct teaching, but also through the way she provokes thought and allows for creative freedom. She's a great person to be under!!

Tanya is very patient and really takes the time to make sure that you understand the topic. She also tries to make learning interesting through different analogies and practices, so that it is easier to remember concepts.

Tanya is an energetic and fun tutor, extremely talented with playing the piano. Helped me understand music better.

Offers really good math lessons, helped me gain confidence in my math skills! Was definitely a major factor in helping me achieve my A1 in o level mathematics! One of the most nurturing, patient and funny ways of teaching that allowed me to change the way I saw math

I was struggling to understand my GCE O Level's Additional Math topic in Circles and Coordinate Geometry, but Tanya provided many additional materials and worked through the solutions together with me. Whenever I was in doubt, Tanya would encourage me to think outside the box and provide hints to me, so I would naturally derive the solution. Honestly, I think it was with great help that I managed to score an 80% in Math during my examinations due to her help (was previously failing or borderline pass at 51%)

Tanya is a really friendly and patient math tutor! I struggle to understand a lot of math concepts, but she takes time to explain them to me and makes sure that I understand them before moving on to other topics. She also gives me lots of good practises to test my knowledge of the different math topics. I definitely wouldn't have done so well in my math exams if it weren't for her help. I def recommend Tanya as a tutor, I think she's a great tutor for anyone and she has tons of knowledge to share.

Tanya is a dedicated tutor who never fails to bring out the best in her students! With her years of experience in piano, she is able to let her students progress as fast as possible with excellent results. It is no doubt that her teaching methods are efficient and easy to understand. I highly recommend!

M
Matthew

I know Tanya as her student for grade 8 piano and as a math tutor. She patiently taught me both grade 8 ABRSM piano and music theory, which allowed me to get merit for both exams. Tanya is also an extremely good teacher at IB HL maths. She patiently taught be the basics of calculus and statistics, as well as functions and algebra, which made me score a 7 in IB HL maths.

Timothy

Tanya is a patient and motivational tutor. Not only was she able to teach me complicated concepts in math in a concise manner, she also taught me in a way that encouraged me to try harder and made me look forward to her lessons.
