Hannah’s love for tutoring:
I am very passionate about teaching /moulding children!! I can be very firm at times as i feel the need to correct children and not only be their friend. I thank God and pray that God give me wisdom and place me at correct timing so that my words carry weight to the young ones.
Lately, I have taken up an assignment to coach a Primary 4 boy. The reason why I took it up was his mum.
She has impacted me a lot in my thinking on parenting. The boy has slight attention disorder and it was harder to make him understand certain concepts. She is a working mother and yet spends time teaching the boy everyday after work. Although the results do not justify the additional hours she spends coaching her son, she does not give up. She always wears a smile and has faith that her son will do well eventually.
Im believing with her. It shall be so.
Looking back at the past decade, it seems I have taken up several job assignments dealing with young children.
Although I have no knowledge at all in golf, I was a pre-schooler golf teacher during my university vacations. I remembered the golf school founder telling me that ALL she need from her golf teachers is to be passionate about working with young children. With that, I was put through several months of basic golf training program and passed the golf etiquette and golf rules tests.
Seeing young children being able to focus in their putting gives me great satisfaction. Much more achievement is felt when students understand that having good golf etiquette is better than scoring a birdie.
Besides stuffs that I have learned from the children through my tuition experience, I have been reading on education, cognitive development, parenting and I will be writing down my thoughts in this blog too. <3
Over the years, i realise that this blog has spun from a personal blog to a website where many of my students, parents and friends follow my posts especially on my teaching materials.
You may use whatever you find useful and should there be any errors in any resources ( yes, i make mistakes too. ) , i appreciate that you drop me a note and i will look into it. Thank you.
I became a mum in Oct 2014. I am thankful that God has gifted me with Ian.
My plans (before Ian arrive) was to send Ian with helper to my Mother-in-law’s place while I teach at home. I felt that its unprofessional for my students to hear baby crying (occasionally) while they are having tuition at my place. However, after Ian arrive and a few months of shuttling, I decided to have Ian at home. Helper will manage him when I am in class. It has turn out very well. Praise God. ( My 2 solid doors are such good investments for filtering out noises. ) Thank God for favour with parents and students too. When I tell my students that they might hear baby crying occasionally, they are pretty cool about it. Most just say “uh..OK.”
Thank God I can still do the job I seriously enjoy much and yet spend most of my time with Ian.
In Jul 2016, my second champion baby will be born too.
I will have to cut down on more classes to take care of my 2 young champions. Therefore, I am venturing into tutors referrals. Actually, I have been doing referrals for many of my students previously and didn’t think of setting up a tuition agency until one parent gave me that idea.
So far, I thank God that this venture has took off steadily and it is progressing very well. (Beyond my expectations)
Indeed, as I (am learning to) put my eyes on Lord Jesus and not on the worldly demands and worldly wealth, He bring me to a land flowing with milk and honey.
I will like to end with 1 verse.
NLT (Ephesians 3:20)
Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.
