Padmaa Venkatason

Students should also be given the chance to be their own mentors, being given the autonomy for self-learning. I do this by stating rules and guidelines without acting as an inspector upon everyone. Because of my concern for learning, I have implemented mastery grading in my teaching. That means I give, to every extent possible, chances for students to redo work that does not show mastery of the material. 

My teaching methods include:

  • Encourage questioning and make space for curiosity 
  • Emphasise conceptual understanding over the procedure 
  • Provide authentic problems that increase student’s drive to engage with maths
  • Share positive attitude about Maths

It’s a sure A when I teach as I make them love Maths.

Tee Song Ci

After spending four years in the engineering industry upon graduation, I decided to make a bold career leap to become a teacher in 2016.  

Fast forward to 2020, I have worked with over 300 students in a couple of international schools for the past four years and have graduated over 110 IGCSE graduates with over 95% scoring C and above & over 40% scoring A and A*. On a part-time basis, I have also helped a few weaker students through one-to-one home tuition. 

I strongly believe that every child is unique and therefore deserves a personalized study plan to fully maximize their potential. With that being said, I always offer one free trial lesson with all my home-tutor students to see if we can align a learning style that suits them.

Tai Kon Yew









I have extensive teaching experience in the classroom, and private tuition, one-to-one and in small groups. Highly specialised and focused in Chemistry as I teach only Chemistry. Probing questions are used to gauge how much you know.

Lessons start with basic concepts illustrated; from what you know to what you don't know. Suitable diagrams and real-life situations to fire your imagination making learning easier, faster and more exciting.

Each student is unique. I believe in developing and building strong foundations before progressing to intermediate and higher stages. My teaching skills and mastery of the syllabus and examination are constantly upgraded by attending EDEXCEL and CIAE Examiners meetings frequently.
