Tutoring Experience

I bring with me over two decades of experience in the field of education, with a significant nine years dedicated to teaching in an IB school located in Asia.

Not only am I a qualified teacher and librarian, but I also hold credentials as an IB DP coordinator. For a decade, I led as the Schools Library Service Manager, and during my tenure, I took on the roles of a DP Core teacher and an Extended Essay coordinator. My expertise primarily lies in the Extended Essay, Theory of Knowledge, and History domains. In my most recent position, I played a pivotal role in ensuring that all DP students successfully navigated and completed their DP studies.

Beyond this, I pride myself on my proficiency in literacy and citation, possessing a deep understanding of the requisite IB criteria to guarantee top-tier DP scores. As a librarian, I was a cornerstone member of the student support team, offering one-on-one mentorship to students and conducting workshops that covered academic writing and college admission applications.

Tutoring Approach

My tutoring methodology centers around the individuality of each student.

Recognizing that every student possesses a distinct learning style, capability, and set of interests, I meticulously tailor lesson plans and educational objectives to cater to their specific needs, ensuring the learning journey is both rewarding and captivating.

My student-centric approach transcends mere academic benchmarks; it's about cultivating a genuine passion for learning, fortifying vital skills, and equipping students to take charge of their own educational journey.
