Professional Experience

1) 1984 –1991 Piano Teacher

2) 2006 – currently. Freelance English tutor + tutoring inmates at a correctional center for 2 years (2015-2017) under invitation by the then Tuan Pengarah.



Hi,
I am a friendly, middle-aged married woman with one son. My hobbies are cooking, watching cookery programmes, reading books, playing the piano( waiting to ship my piano over from my last home) and shopping!
I left school with A levels. An MA was offered by McGraw university but I cancelled the Masters they sent . I was also offered a partial limited scholarship by Roehampton London online to study
an MA in learning and teaching. Currently, I am pursuing a Hebrew course with Israel Biblical Institute to collect credits. And have been offered to study five courses leading to associate scholar. Praise God!

I have been teaching the piano and English over twenty-four years. I joke a lot and enjoy teaching very much. My personality test says I am sociable and optimistic, concerned for quality and is results- orientated. I am able to maintain an ever-changing, friendly, work environment. The test also says I am independent and innovative, flexible, positive, outgoing and respond well to challenges.





From 2015-2017, I was invited to teach English by the Tuan Pengarah, to inmates at Bintulu correctional centre. At the beginning, the number of attendants was nine. This grew to over forty by the time I left. The Pengarah at the KL headquarters decided that it would be safer for me to discontinue as the inmates were all adult men.

Currently, from January 2019, I have been invited to teach English and simple Maths to refugee children in K.L.

Teaching children is not new as I have been in this vocation for twenty-three years. About 85% of my private students improve one grade higher in a year. About 3% are protegees, improving several grades in less than 9 months. There are rarely any failures.

The syllabi taught include (2006)KSSR(UPSR), PT3, SPM, 1119 ,(2018) Checkpoint Primary and Secondary, IGCSE.





From 2006 – February 2018, my family was in Bintulu due to my husband’s job transfer. We decided to return to KL, my hometown, responding to my mother’s request after the demise of my late father in February 2018. In doing so, I left behind a thriving home tuition business where the Parents waited until they no longer could, for my return. It was confirmed in December 2018 that I had relocated permanently.




My teaching experiences often leave me in wonder that children are very original and creative. Being mostly Chinese school students in my home tuition classes, these children only needed to learn the foreign English Language to express their work .It is not that they are not creative;they just needed better English language. Most of these children and teenagers I worked with were from a town where English is hardly used.

Not only are the children taught English, they are also taught good character traits. One or two Parents have even asked for their older children to be caned.( I declined. I have other ways of discipline. Caning ought to be done by their own Parents.)

Hence, this resume is just a short prelude . Thank you.
