Hasnah Private Tuition

Mdm Hasnah Tumbuck, 36, English, Math and Science Teacher, Primary School.

I began my career as a teacher with Ministry of Education, Singapore in 2001. After graduating from National Institute of Education, I was posted to one of the top primary schools in Singapore – Ai Tong School. Specializing in Science, I assisted the Science department overlooking learning development of Science at lower primary level. I was also appointed the School Coordinator for National Education (NE) Department. After 6 years of service with the ministry, I joined the customer service industry with Singapore Airlines, while completing my degree, BSc in Psychology at UniSIM.

As my passion persists mainly in education and child development areas, I accepted an offer to join a private educational company CM Asia Learning as a STEM Educator. I am a Master Trainer certified by iCarnegie/RoboMatter for STEM with Computer Science, applying latest developments to the mapping of school integrated computer programs for more effective teaching pedagogy in the core subjects’ curriculum for overseas clients.

Patient, nurturing tutor! Previously my son was in Learning Lab because he had difficulties learning Maths. The situation worsened as he was placed in a all girls' class where everyone was ahead of him. Since then, he hated maths and refused to enrol in any other enrichment class. I needed a tutor who could ignite the maths interest in it. Zareena managed to encourage and promote the interest in him. Now he enjoys Maths so much that he is almost nearly full marks on test each time. For me, i'm just happy to see him happy.
