In 2007 she decided to become a private tutor to provide a more in depth methodology for students to excel in their studies. She has experience working in several tuition powerhouses in Singapore like Kip Mc Graph with long standing reputation and have since started her own, LearningAid Private Tutoring. She also works as a Public Speaking Trainer for children in public schools.
Through her exposure travelling the world and love for reading, culture and the arts, her education methodology became fused. She enriches the experience of the child via stories and real situations that students can relate to. She also aims to build curiosity and confidence in the child across all levels and abilities. This method has proven vast improvements in the child’s academic abilities as well as his holistic development, i.e personal and social growth.

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. Today, I chose a different path in education that is to personalize teaching, catering to enhance individual strengths and supporting those who need aid in subjects English, Math and Science.
