I started tutoring an 11 year old girl during my free time. Classes with her weren’t consistent. Sometimes 3 times a month. Sometimes twice. Only when I’m free. She enjoyed the learning so earlier this month, she signed up for weekly classes.
2 weeks after proper, consistent tutoring, she sat for her final term examination. A week after that, she shared that her grades improved.
Bahasa Inggeris (Penulisan)
Mid term = E
Final term = C
Bahasa Inggeris (Pemahaman)
Mid term = C
Final term = B
Frankly, I don’t think the improvement was because of what I learnt with her in the two weeks. I really believe that she stepped into the examination hall with a new found confidence that she can ace the paper. The 2 lessons she spent with me in those 2 weeks helped her realize that English is in fact easy and is nothing to be feared.
She and I have a long way to go. I have a target for her. Which I’ll share once it’s achieved 😉.
With love, inspiration and passion,
