" I am grateful to have a job that allows me to draw on the elements of teaching that have long been a part of who I am while working with students who continue to inspire me each day.

I have been told that my approach to teaching makes it enjoyable for my students, this is because I always discuss the needs of my new pupils very carefully and aim to build their confidence in the subject. 

I enjoy helping others to learn. My pupils have fun while they study and are always proud of their progress. I try to encourage a genuine interest in any subject studied.

People often ask me why I became a teacher, and my answer is because I love English! I also enjoy sharing the appreciation of fine writing and reading with my students. I am passionate about good writing and believe there’s a story inside of all of us, and it’s just waiting to be unlocked!

A Personal Note

Hi! I'm Mr Teo. From my 8 years of experience teaching English, I have discovered that many students employ the wrong methods for their English exam preparation, as a result, their grades remain stagnant.

If you're aiming for an A, A* or distinction in English, you have to go the extra mile, to do what others are unwilling to do, to improve your skills, learn the strategies, expand your vocabulary. But dont worry, I'm here to help!

I have nurtured over 100 distinction-scorers in English, many of them were low to average performers who believed in me and followed my strategy. I thank them for their faith in me and I sincerely welcome you on board!
