About.

Mr. Lum.

Head Tutor of Understand General Paper Pte Ltd

I graduated from the National University of Singapore with a bachelor’s degree majoring in Economics. I have been in the fund management and real estate industry for more than 13 years. Previously I was managing in excess of $20 million worth of assets. My real life working experience puts me in a good position to educate students in the field of General Paper. In my spare time, I am a writer and an avid blogger. My articles have been reproduced in certain publications and print media.

Teaching is my calling and I am extremely passionate about writing. All classes are taught by me to ensure consistency in quality and delivery. I believe in fostering a good relationship between tutor, student, and parent to ultimately achieve the results desired. I have worked with my students to ultimately achieve their desired grade and I am glad to see them progress on to the university of their choice.

General Paper is the bane of many students undergoing their A-Levels. However, it does not have to be this way. General Paper encourages students to take an analytical view on current affairs and develop a constructive argument to a certain topic. Such skills can and will be fostered in class. This will put the students in good stead for their A-level examinations as examiners are looking for a certain level of insight and maturity in their essays.

My track record and qualifications are available privately upon request.
