Mrs Tan Hsien Shih
I went to good schools all my life, was a Humanities scholar and liked learning so much I went to university, twice. The first time, I read History and Political Science. The second time round, I moved to a different continent, read psychology and had so much fun with it, I went on to do an Honours year in it. For all my effort, the university awarded me a First Class Honours for it, published my thesis as a paper and offered me a PhD scholarship.
I turned down the scholarship to go back to Singapore. I had decided that I had gone so far academically because I had great teachers who inspired me with their passion, commitment and knowledge. I wanted to do the same for those who came after me. For ten years, I taught in top JCs in Singapore with the same amount of fervour and commitment that my own teachers did. I modeled my teaching philosophy and lessons after theirs.
I also made it my life’s mission to make sure that the students who went through their pre-tertiary education with me graduated not just with good grades but with a keen awareness of what was going on in the world around them and a sense of social responsibility to those they shared their society with.
When asked why I teach, my answer is simple; I teach in the hope that it would inspire greatness.
When I read about the Boston Marathon Bombing or the Malaysian Elections, I don’t react the way normal people do. Instead of just mourning the deaths of the victims, my brain goes into overdrive drawing the links to A- level General Paper and its associated issues and themes.
Having read an array of courses in university, my approach to General Paper is as multi-faceted as the subject itself. In addition to that was the training and insights I developed from being part of the team that set up the Knowledge and Inquiry subject at one of the most reputable junior colleges in Singapore- Temasek JC. My teaching pedagogies were heavily influenced by that and by what I envisioned as the end point for my students by the end of their pre-tertiary education. My students always tell me that they leave my lessons with a heavy head because of the intensity and sophistication of argument and debate that happens within the tuition class.
Unlike other JC GP tutors in Singapore, I do not count my successes as those who score distinctions in the A-Level General Paper (GP) Examinations. Those are definitely good things to have and I see them as a given for any serious student who has listened to the things I have taught. I see my successes as those who go out there and use what I have taught them in class to change things, speak up and help those who cannot be helped. When I hear that, that is when I know I have done my job well.
Mr Hong KT
I am always a fan of reading, since young. In fact, I read about 5 books in a week. So English language has always been my forte. When it comes to English comprehension, I am able to grasp the point(s) the author is driving at.
Now, it is my mission to make English comprehension tests and exams a breeze for all my students. It’s fun and challenging at the same time.
