I started my teaching career with a private preschool in Singapore, which catered to children of various nationalities. After my stint with the school for 5 years, I decided to equip myself with skills to help children with learning difficulties. I trained in Orton-Gillingham Approach and later obtained a Dyslexia Diploma to teach children with special learning needs.

Before joining DAS International in April 2013, I taught Literacy and Maths to students with multiple learning difficulties including dyslexia, dyscalculia, and ADHD for about 6 years as a private tutor. Most of my students are from lower and upper primary levels and come from a mix of local and international schools.

Having a strong background and interest in Mathematics drives me to cultivate the love of the subject in my students. My aim is to understand the strengths, weaknesses and learning styles of children in order to design individualised programmes to help and motivate them to achieve their targets. I believe that it is important to build a strong rapport with students and create a conducive learning environment for the smooth delivery of knowledge.
