What sets Miss Wong apart from many other tuition teachers whom I’ve seen is definitely her ability to control and discipline the class whenever she needs to. Unlike other classes where the students would continue to chit-chat even after the teacher has scolded them, Ms Wong would allow none of that to happen during her lesson. By using her strict and stern tone, followed by her correction which may sometimes be incorporated with life lessons, those students who have made a mistake will understand the severity of their mistake and never to make the same mistake again. As her student who had experienced the full discipline, I must say that this is definitely one of Miss Wong’s wonderful and unique trait as a teacher!
Not only that, although what I’ve shared seems to be a harsh approach, Ms Wong is actually a very caring and gentle teacher. You can tell from her actions and words that she genuinely wants you to learn and have an enjoyable time in her class. For example, whenever we were feeling tired or exhausted from doing the English exercises, she would deliberately go out of her way to give us sweets and chocolates to keep us from falling asleep! Through this is such a small gesture, I can tell that not only does she wants to give us the best, she would also go the extra mile to help us out, giving us the motivation to study even harder!
I used to be overly-meticulous about everything. Ms Wong has also helped me a lot. For example, there was a time when I was constantly fretting about how I wanted my essays to be perfect without having to check for grammatical errors but at the same time without having to spend too much time. However, I knew that it would be very difficult to achieve that. It was right during this time when I approached Ms Wong and she gave me the needed solution to my problem. She said that to write an essay free from grammatical errors, it would take practice and practice but if I were to just fill in all the points first in my essay and then check for grammatical errors only when I finish writing, I would save a lot more time. And so I did and voila! I could see the difference in my essay writing! From getting an 18/30 for my essays, I was slowly improving and getting 22/30 or even more! Truly, I am very grateful to Ms Wong and once again I must say “Thank you, Ms Wong!”!
All in all, Ms Wong is like a needle in a haystack and she is a teacher who is very hard to come across nowadays. From her strictness to her gentleness and then to her guidance, everything about her is what makes her a wonderful person and an even more spectacular teacher!”
