Online and Physical Lesson

Contact me for more information.

Both online and physical lessons available

Both online and physical lessons are available. For parents and students who are afraid that online lesson quality will be affected, no worries. All lessons are conducted 1-1 and quality is not affected. I have been conducting online lessons since 2017. Furthermore, many students have feedbacked that they don't want physical lessons anymore, including new students who just joined. Do contact me for more information. Thank you!


What students say about Samuel

I would like to thank Mr Li for being so patient & understanding with me throughout these few months of tutoring. He always tries his best to cater to my needs and gives me additional materials to revise for to ensure that I really understand the chapters and makes sure that I have sufficient additional worksheets to do. Not only that, Mr Li makes sure that I fully understand the concepts by making the concepts easier for me to understand and encourages me to ask when in doubt.

I would highly recommend Samuel as a tutor. He is friendly, professional and knowledgeable. He was able to simplify complex concepts for me to understand and apply. He tutored me four modules in a short span of three months, and I managed to achieve minimally a B+ for all my quizzes and mid-trimester tests. I particularly remembered we had a two days consecutive session before a module mid-term test, and I secured an A. I appreciate that he constantly keep in touch with me weekly via WhatsApp to maximise my learning experience. Thank you Samuel!

Teaching Style

My teaching style is not rocket science. It has helped many students over the years and I am sure it will help you too.

teaching style fundamentals


I focus on building the basic concepts and prove to students that all questions can be solved using the fundamentals and basic understandings.

teaching style interaction


Teaching is not about me talking and students listening. It is about two-way communication. Both parties asking and answering questions is the best way to learn effectively.

teaching style set goal


I set small and realistic goals with students and review them periodically. This is to ensure that they are on the right path towards their next phase of life.

teaching style applications


I always add in practical applications to what students are learning. Not only does this capture their attention, it makes them remember the concepts better.
