Some Singapore parents and students have called, telling me they want to know more about the class structures.
Most of my private classes range from one student to four students, preferably held at their residences. These classes can be ad-hoc, long term of short term.
For group classes in tuition centres, the class size is not more that 8.
My notes and worksheet are prepared by myself. I don’t like to be long-winded with notes so they are really concise. Questions mostly seek to teach and mentor students.
In general, I utilise the class timing to impart my knowledge and understanding to students. I don’t like to see my students do work in front of me unless necessary.
Most of the times, I can finish a topic in a 2H lesson. There was a student who was doing really badly, took tuition daily just two weeks prior to A-levels and I saw her to an A. So it is possible; but I do not generally like such methods of teaching as I wasn’t teaching but just telling her what to do in A-levels.
