About Me

I have 5 years of teaching experience as a science teacher and have a strong interest in social and educational research, particularly those concerning educational inequalities, diversity, and science education.

As a teacher, my strength lies in my lesson planning. I found students often struggle with their exam techniques, so I am always very careful in ensuring students through my teaching understand how to write good exam answers using correct scientific keywords to maximize the number of marks they can score from the mark scheme. I am particularly familiar with the AQA GCSE Combined Science/Triple science specification and syllabus. I like to make links between the student's everyday life and their science learning so they can find the contents more relatable and enjoyable. I am also very experienced in differentiation and scaffolding in my lessons having taught students of a diverse range of abilities.

I can also speak and write fluent Chinese (Cantonese and Mandarin).

Tutor Experience

I completed my PGCE in 2017, and was a secondary school science teacher in London for 5 years, teaching KS3 to KS4 science classes and A-Level Chemistry. I was also sixth-form tutor for 4 years and have great experience in guiding students through their university applications and the writing of their UCAS personal statements. I also have been a PGCE mentor and have mentored several student teachers/early career teachers.

The classes I taught included top sets and foundation classes. I also have many experiences teaching and working with students with a diverse range of special educational needs with a significant number of them passing at the GCSE level or meeting/exceeding their target grades. Throughout my teaching career, I have built many strong relationships with students and parents in my school and received much praise for my teaching practice.

In addition, I have had previous experiences tutoring students in GCSE and A-Level Mathematics in prestigious institutions as well as experience in IB.

Testimonials

My daughter found the lessons with Yeung extremely beneficial. She went from disliking science to gaining a real interest, thanks to his teachings. Yeung creates a friendly and warm atmosphere. I would definitely recommend Yeung.
-Anonymous (Year 11 parent)

No doubt Yeung is an experienced and knowledgeable tutor. Although my son started with him for GCSE science recently, yet his improvement is recognisable. While they are tackling exam questions, he taught him how to structure as well as covering gap of knowledge. My son enjoyed his lessons with Yeung and find them useful and beneficial. Many thanks Yeung and all the best.
-Aida (Year 11 parent)

Yeung has been a tremendous support to my son and in a very short span of time was able to make my son enjoy learning science and how to tackle many of the gcse style questions. Will be starting with him regularly in September as well. He is also very flexible and kind with his time. Thank you Yeung
-Anna (Year 8 parent)

Very helpful and clear. Great with personal statements and answering general questions about UCAS.
-Peter

Yeung has helped my son grow in confidence with his chemistry and physics. From really struggling to grasp the concepts Yeung has been diligent in growing his understanding. He is now confident in class and loves answering questions and getting them right. Yeung is a wonderful science tutor!
