About me

Hello there!

Who am I?

I am currently an Architecture undergraduate student at the University of Edinburgh. I have just completed the International Baccalaureate Diploma last summer and that for me was an unforgettable experience in my life. Even though I am studying a specific subject right now, my passion for Maths and Languages always occupy a space in my mind. I enjoyed them so much during my high school that I am very keen to keep a refreshing memory of them for tutoring students who need some tips and guidance in their journey of exploring different knowledge. In addition, I am a very friendly person with extra patience gained from my volunteering experience with primary school kids learning Mandarin. 

During our fun tutorial...

I believe that explaining the core principle is one of the most important element in understanding the subject. Therefore, I will focus on how to make my students to understand rather than just memorising the knowledge. I will be providing them valuable method to the solutions and also be doing different tutoring activity based on different needs. So it is also important to be honest with each other in the session and communicate. 

Need help with your ToK essay and presentation?

You know what, I am up for it! I got an A for my Tok overall and 10 out of 10 for my presentation. I am particularly interested in the subject so will very much enjoy myself tutoring students who are having the same experience I had last year. I am also familiar with what kind of things the examiners are looking for. Hence, if you want some tips and would like me to review their work, you are looking for the right person.

Finally, I wish you all the best!!!

Although I haven’t had any formal tutoring experience, I always want to help other people who struggles because I had the same thing, I know how devastating it could be especially coming to exam time.  

Looking forward to see you! :)

Lesson was severely impaired by technical difficulties Virtually no work was covered, my daughter, Kiri found it very frustrating Absolutely not Grace's fault, she tried really hard to rectify issues but with no success I'm happy to try again but feel either a complementary session next time or a refund for today's lesson is in order Please advise

How to write a good exam essay for English Lit if you tent to losing control of your time?

1) Manage your time at the beginning of your exam. Divide you’re an hour and a half or two hours into sections for planning, writing and reviewing. Always have a watch on your hand or check the clock in the exam hall to make sure you are on track of your plan. 2) Plan wisely. Plan your ‘point...

1) Manage your time at the beginning of your exam. Divide you’re an hour and a half or two hours into sections for planning, writing and reviewing. Always have a watch on your hand or check the clock in the exam hall to make sure you are on track of your plan.

2) Plan wisely. Plan your ‘points, evidence and explanation’ in paragraphs ahead, making sure your points are clearly tackling the key words in your question in a logical and organised way. In that sense, you have an advantage of making your essay more concise as well as focusing on the question rather than writing things not relevant.

3) Making sure you are prepared for the exam. Doing enough revision is an obvious thing to do before your exam but being familiar with the quotes particularly accelerate your thinking process in your head as you have already had the evidences, which are mostly presented by the quotes of your studied literatures. Constructing your points from your evidences is one of the most efficient way when you have a blank out in your exam.

1) Enthusiasm. The examiners want to see your interests and passion in Math exploration in your everyday life. So, do research, get inspired and look for mathematic application in your interests before you decide your topic. 

2) logical and concise organazation. Make sure your exploration is in chronological order, everything clearly labled and easy to understand. Yes, logical reasoning is the key in Mathematics.

3) self- reflection. Remember your whole assignment is a self exploration, therefore you need to reflext on what you find out and learn through your journey. Basically, include everything  you feel and think about your experiementaions in your exploration if relevant.

Why in a strong acid and strong bases reaction, a drop of acid added would not change its PH dramatically but has a big drop near the equivalent point?

PH scal is a logarithmic scale which means PH 3 is10 times more concentrated in hydrogen ions then PH4. PH scale is therefore the negative of hydrogen concentration. Now When a drop of atrong acid, even if the drop has a high concentration of hydrogen ions, the concentration in the total solut...

PH scal is a logarithmic scale which means PH 3 is10 times more concentrated in hydrogen ions then PH4. PH scale is therefore the negative of hydrogen concentration. Now When a drop of atrong acid, even if the drop has a high concentration of hydrogen ions, the concentration in the total solution is insignificant, hence the PH does not increase much. Nevertheless, near the equavalent point where most of the strong base had been neutralised by the strong acid which leaves a fairly neutralised solution at around PH 6. in this case, even a little drop of the strong acid can change the PH dramatically because the concentration of hydrogen ions in the acid has a direct impact on the excess hydrogen ion concentration of the solution without the buffering effect from the neutralising reaction.
