Passionate Committed Tutor with Top IGCSE Awards

Over 500 hours & 3 years of fantastic tutoring experience! I am a Masters in Chemical Engineering student at Imperial College London. I was also awarded 1st in IGCSE Maths and across 9 IGCSE subjects in Malaysia. Depending on your needs, I am still very familiar with the GCSE and A Level syllabus.

My approach in tutoring is simple - it is all about "YOU"! I understand that tutoring is different from normal classes, and I will tailor lessons individually to suit your needs, interests and learning speed. I will guild you to develop a solid understanding of the theories and concepts first, rather than just feeding you all the complicated equations and formulas.

Tutoring style
1) Communication. From day 1, I will actively engage you to understand your needs, your grasp of the subjects and thought processes. I am also open to any relevant questions, either during the lessons or any time via text or email to ensure the support does not end after the lessons!

2) Commitment. Once I am your tutor, I am committed to help you to improve your understanding and confidence in the subjects, but I would need your commitment as well. I will do my best to make lessons interesting using simple and practical examples.

3) Patience. It is one of my strengths. I am more than willing to repeat anything to make sure that you fully understand a certain concept. Do not hesitate to ask me any questions during the lesson. Even though it may sound trivial, it is NOT if you learn something out of it.

Away from academics, I enjoy playing sports (e.g. football, basketball, badminton) and watching movies that are based on true stories. We can even have a chat on any mutual topics we have after lessons!

I believe that with the right guidance, anyone can fulfil their endless potential and achieve improved grades in exams.

Feel free to contact me with any queries. My schedule is fairly flexible, especially during Wednesdays and weekends.

Obvious improvement in my studies after Wei Jie's lessons.

I've taken a liking to maths ever since I was a young kid. But because of lacking a proper maths teacher, I wasn't able to fully understand every topic of maths and the complicated formulas. Fortunately, I was able to come across this dedicated teacher, Wei Jie to help me with my problem. Since then every Sunday Wei Jie will come to my house to tutor me, even though my house is very far away from his. Thanks to him, I was finally able to fully understand all the complicated formulas and hard math topics.
Subject:

An Amazing Teacher

Few more months to my finals examination and I am in desperate need of a maths teacher. I came across his tuition form on a board of notices at a nearby market. I figured that since I need improvement I had to take it. I called and arranged for a maths class the next day. I expected him to be an adult but the day I had his tuition I was shocked. Clearly 'the older you are, the more you know' does not take effect on him. His knowledge on maths is beyond what I expected. Any questions that was asked is answered clearly without hesitation. He is also and amazingly patient teacher as he will explain over and over again if you do not understand. His method of teaching is simple, clear and very informative. The end result of my finals examination was a tremendous improvement. Wei Jie is an exceptional teacher and I would take his tuition class any time, any day.
Subject:
Advanced Maths (GCSE)

I had improved tremendously with the help of Wie Jie and his knowledge of maths is simple, clear and very informative.

He is also a capable leader as he is able to give vision and direction to his group whenever there is a group assignment enabling his group to complete the assignment ahead of time.

Wei Jie is also active in voluntary work where he has lend his hand in numerous charity events such as the voluntary services to the Wildlife Conservation Singapore Fund in 2007, the ‘Joy Ride for the Elderly’ in 2008 and the voluntary work at Hospital University Kebangsaan Malaysia and Hospital Serdang in 2009.

Confidence boost

Wei Jie is working with my 15 year old son to improve his confidence in Mandarin. He has been extremely flexible, suggesting an initial meeting face to face and then working remotely via Skype. I could see straight away that he had a way of breaking the language down in to easily digested chunks, which is really helping my son speed writing and with translation. They have also been working on pronunciation to fine tune his oral ability.

Wei Jie keeps in regular contact to ensure we are happy with progress and check in for feedback. An absolute pleasure to work with.
