Maths Methods Tutor | An Interview with Dori Deng, This Weeks Featured #tutorsofLGT
As part of our #tutorsofLGT campaign, this week we are featuring one of LGT‘s top Maths Methods Tutors, Dori Deng. As a Platinum Maths Methods tutor, she has conducted well over 50 hours worth of private tutoring and has earned her spot as one of LGT’s most active Tutors of 2018.
Our aim behind the #tutorsofLGT campaign is to give light to to some of LGT Tutoring’s most dedicated and experienced tutors. In answering some of these questions and sharing their stories, we hope it will not only inspire our students, but also tutors who are just starting out.
We asked Dori some questions and here is what she had to say!
1. Out of all the tutoring you have done, what moment stood out to you the most?
“The moments that really stood out to me are the times when a student tells me that they understood a topic better after my explanations – the moments when I know that my knowledge is successfully delivered to the student. Tutoring is something I enjoy doing, and I will always want to improve my teaching skills.”
2. If you go back and advise your younger self to do anything different while studying, what would it be and why?
“If I could go back and advise my younger self, I would tell my 16-year-old self (I was in year 10 back then) to never panic. The good things will come, everything will work out, you just need to try your best. What matters the most is who you are, whether you are happy, whether you are living your life to its full potential, whether you are doing everything you can to be a better person than who you are today. If you want a different life than now, you have to change who you are, you have to be different, for you cannot trade your same old self for a brand new life. You need to be better, and you can be. Live the life that you want to live, and know this – it is never too late. If you find out that your life right now is not the way you want it too be, find the courage and start over again.”
3. With over 50 hours of tutoring experience, what advice would you have for other tutors?
“To other tutors – being with LGT is like being a part of a big family. We improve together, and we grow together, through open-minded communication and the sharing of knowledge. Enjoy your journey with LGT and try your best, because that is how we learn and improve. There is always room for improvement, and we can always be better.”
On behalf of LGT Tutoring, we want to thank Dori for answering those questions and all her continuous hard work.
