About Myself

I'm a second year economist at Cambridge University, focusing on Labour as my option. I like discussing the impact of economic policy at national and international levels, primarily focused on how businesses are affected by changes in the news and elsewhere. I'm running a business on the side, trying to change the way we use ecommerce.

Tutoring Approach

I like to understand the student and engage in discussions about what they want from their future and from themselves. Understanding them then lets me highlight their strengths, which they will use to have an edge in the interview. I'm patient and will simulate mock interviews, give ideas on how to prepare for most questions and provide other sources for them to discover the ways of getting what they want.

Teaching Experience

I have taught private tuition to 5 students in Singapore, primarily in IB economics, and have also given tuition for high school mathematics. I have also given group tuition as part of The Learning Lab in Singapore, which is recognised as the leading tuition agency for primary and secondary school education.

Extracurricular Interests

I have a passion for current affairs and debate. This led me straight into Model United Nations conferences, and I have been a delegate and chair in several competitions in the UK, notably winning the Diplomacy Award at Harvard MUN in Belgium.

I also hope that my business turns into more than an extracurricular interest, although as it stands it's still just an extracurricular activity I have.

Offer from University of Cambridge (Economics)

Edmond gave me a good understanding of how to prepare for the interview. Mock interviews along with his tips and advise made me more confident of presenting myself on the actual day. If not for meeting Edmond through Youngtutors, I would have not known how to go about my preparation.
