About the lesson
My tutoring approach depends on the particular exam or task for which I am teaching.
In all cases, the approach consists of a mutually agreed plan that is tailored to the student, contingent on what the student needs. In my admissions consulting practice, I have worked with students' essays online, offering critical feedback and helpful coaching tips.
In my IELTS classes, previous approaches have included defining a syllabus, and establishing writing tasks to be completed by the student prior to a short call for feedback, during which I provide feedback on the student's written work and provide directions for further improvement - Conducted entirely online, via Google Drive and Google Hangouts. In my SAT classes, I have offered both topic-by-topic reviews with diagnostic questions for each topics, explaining each individual concept and providing exercises for my students to complete.
For scholarship interview and admissions preparation, I have arranged mock interviews for my students during which I quiz them with questions that they are likely to receive during the course of applications. At the end of the day, everyone learns differently, and it is the directive of the teacher to understand the student and to develop a plan accordingly, while simultaneously measuring our progress together.

My name is Victor Tan. I am a graduate of The University of Chicago's Economics program as well as a beneficiary of the now discontinued JPA Ivy League dan Setara Scholarship, which gave me a full scholarship to study at the top economics program in the United States, and have been tutoring for four years.
Prior to college, I scored 41/45 points on the IB Diploma, and 9A/9A's on the SPM. I am also a perfect scorer in the SAT, and a long time private tutor. I have made a living through tutoring students for the past several years, and find teaching to be a very liberating profession, for I have had the fortune to work with many motivated students who give me the motivation to do better as a teacher each day. Some of these students have gone on to do very well, having collectively gained 5 full scholarships and admissions to top programs in the UK (Imperial College London, UCL), and in the US (Wharton UPenn, UT Austin). I currently also conduct IELTS classes online, and coach students for the SAT and SAT II alike, specifically in SAT II Mathematics and Physics. Currently, I am also teaching for the Cambridge/Oxford TSA, and coaching students on the Cambridge Economics entrance exam.
Looking forward to meeting you, to hearing your story, and helping you achieve your goals!
