About me

My name is Shirley. I'm Danish Chinese and grew up in Denmark. I speak four languages Danish, English, Cantonese and Mandarin. I study Civil Engineering because during my high school I took a design class and did a project where I could combine design and mathematics. I really like architecture and think it's really cool to be able to design structures that can stand and can be used by people.

I tutor in Maths and English because these are the subjects I've always been really good at. I can help you improve in these subjects by carefully explaining you the key concepts and then do lots of practice examples and questions. I like to take a very interactive and proactive approach in my teaching. I explain concepts through talk and illustrations.

I hope to be able to help you.

They way I structure my lessons is first I want to get to know you and where you struggle in a subject. I want to reach your final goals by setting small goals for each session we have together. By knowing what you want to improve on and how much time we have together, I will make a curriculum for our sessions clearly stating the learning aims and objectives for each session. Then as we start the sessions, I want to spend the first 15 min. revising the previous session to make sure that those...

They way I structure my lessons is first I want to get to know you and where you struggle in a subject. I want to reach your final goals by setting small goals for each session we have together. By knowing what you want to improve on and how much time we have together, I will make a curriculum for our sessions clearly stating the learning aims and objectives for each session. Then as we start the sessions, I want to spend the first 15 min. revising the previous session to make sure that those learning objectives were met before we progress with a new topic. I like to structure my lessons differently each time so that you won't feel you're stuck in the same routine by introducing games and illustrations into the lessons. Every now and then, I will ask for your feedback to me so I can review my teaching and we can improve and work together.
