Hi, thank you for visiting my website! A brief introduction of myself.

I graduated with Honours from the University of Bradford, UK.

I was an avid debater during his tertiary school days, and was the Captain of the Debate Team, representing the Polytechnic in Inter-Varsity Debates.  I went on to represent Singapore in International Debates following my success at National Debates. 

I continued to pursue my interest in public speaking by doing public presentations for global companies such as Panasonic & Yamaha as well as hosted events & seminars.

I have also participated in Toastmasters competitions, winning the Best Speaker Awards and is a certified Competent Communicator by the US Toastmasters Association.

Trained in Patterns of Excellence, I successfully adopted the approach on students, empowering them the qualities of positive thinking and taking responsibility.

certified teacher by the Council of Private Education (CPE), I have taught in International school, preparing students for the Admission Exams for International Students (AEIS).         

Besides teaching in school, I also coach organizations on proper use of the English language. 

Being well-versed in the school curriculum, I am able to help students achieved success in national exams from PSLE English to A levels General Paper (GP). 

My lessons are often lively, using thematic approach to engage students in discussions while at the same time, strengthening their writing skills and word power.
