Often, tutees look for a tutor because they can not catch up with the lessons in class. I have realized that it stems from a lack in their foundational knowledge in a subject. What I enjoy most about tutoring is seeing the smiles and the aha moments that my tutees experience once they are able to understand and digest their lessons after tackling any issues in their foundational knowledge.
I would consider my adaptability and empathy as my strengths as a tutor. I believe I can adapt well based on my student's needs and can identify quickly what he or she may lack. With my empathy, I believe I have strong interpersonal skills, which could help me interact and deliver my lessons effectively to my tutees.
The most important thing that a tutor can do for a student is to be build a good rapport with the student. It is important because it will allow the tutor to deliver a tailor-made lesson to the student. The tutor will know where the student lacks, what factors affect his or her underperformance, what additional materials he or she needs, what method of delivery works for him or her, etc.

I am currently an incoming Year 2 student at CUHK, majoring in Biomedical Engineering. I have attained a level 5 Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certification. Furthermore, I have received formal training and workshops in blockchain and different programming languages (i.e., Java, Python, Arduino). Aside from those, I love to do creative hobbies, such as cooking and arts.
There was a math tutoring program that lasted for a year. However, due to the bond that I have formed with my tutee, we often meet up after that program so I can help her with any problems she has in math. There were also a couple of outreach voluntary teaching activities where I taught English to less privileged students. Aside from that, there were times I casually tutored Chemistry and Calculus.
I worked as a part-time Math Tutor at Mentorhood(Shatin) Limited, where I taught Singaporean-based Math to kids aged 3 to 12. Additionally, as part of my TEFL training, I virtually observed ESL classes in Taiwan and taught two students English. Lastly, I volunteered in Paper Airplanes last January. I tutored one student weekly through online means.
