A University High School graduate, Chunfai is currently studying the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Law double degree at Monash University. He currently tutors Primary Mathematics and English at Lore Tuition.
My first experience of tutoring started in Year 5. At the time, I was aiming to get into the Acceleration Programme at University High School. I did not have much hope of making it because I was not confident that my maths and writing skills were good enough for the Programme. In particular, I struggled with patterns and creative writing.
The tutors I had were very understanding and were always ready to help. I remember there was one week where I could not make head or tail about the topic they were doing for English. I had submitted in a creative piece as part of my homework. The tutor took one look at my homework and pointed out the numerous spelling and grammar mistakes that were in my piece. The thing I remembered the most was how she patiently explained how I could improve my piece and lessen the number of mistakes I made when I wrote.
When I took the test to enter into the Acceleration Programme, I had gained confidence in areas that I previously considered to be my weaknesses. I subsequently did well in the test and was invited to join the Acceleration Programme. From that point onwards, that inspired me to constantly strive for success in achieving my goals both in school and in life.
