About Robert

I believe that tutoring is first about personal connection. Any learning can only be achieved given a certain level of trust, which must be established in order to create a solid platform from which further learning can then flourish. Younger students are most open to absorbing information and should have the chance to take academic information and guidance from a range of people. This enhances the educational experiences and broadens the horizons of a student.

Having myself struggled with poor teachers, or unwieldy subject matter, I know that, with the right teachers, such areas can come alive. More clinical approaches to tutoring further separate students from the learning process. Having experienced one-to-one tuition myself, I have seen the many positives and potential pitfalls the system can bring. These experiences galvanize me and help me in my own tutoring. I relish taking what I have learnt, and the exciting methods by which I have learnt it, and passing that on to other students.

Regardless of the level taught, it is impossible to make real progress unless the student first has engagement and interest in the subject. I see my task as tutor as a process of invigorating the material for those studying.

Reference for Robert N

Written by Kate Al R
I highly recommend Robert an an excellent tutor of of English and English Literature subjects. He has deep knowledge on those subjects and helped my son a lot with both style and substance. He is infectiously enthusiastic and his lessons most enjoyable. His imagination renders it possible for the education to be at the same time oblique and focused. He had a conversational style of tutoring, which made learning very easy for my son, who felt that he learned a lot whilst enjoying the process.

I recommend Robert without reservation. I am sure he would bring his innate intelligence and creativity to any job he undertook. If you have any further questions regarding his approach and expertise, please do not hesitate to contact me."

Robert - reference

Written by Azah Nor R
"I think you have been very effective with tutoring both my boys ahead of their 11+ assessments this year. Some of the things you have done very well include:
· Your ability to quickly assess each of their strengths as well as areas to further work on, taking into consideration their personalities and individual learning style
· Your way of making the lessons enjoyable and engaging for the boys. It is not easy to have them work during the holidays but the way you mix the different subjects, have little 'games' in between and the jokes you share have all been helpful
· The interview practice and tips have been valuable and I know both boys have applied some of these during their actual interviews
· Your flexibility on timing and willingness to come out to Kuala Lumpur to tutor them – I truly appreciate this!

Thanks so much for your help. I would not hesitate to recommend you as tutor to others!"
