Mr Gnan holds a Bachelor of Science Degree and a Post Graduate Diploma in Education. He has over 25 years of teaching experience in Mathematics.
He was a senior marker for the GCE ‘A’ level examinations. Since 2011, Mr Gnan has been a full-time tutor teaching ‘O’ level Mathematics,
IB HL and SL Mathematics and ‘A’ level H1 and H2 Mathematics. His lessons, which are known for the use of real-life applications of mathematics concepts, helped his students quickly and easily grasp concepts and foster a greater appreciation for the subject.
Thank you for recruiting Mr Gnan who was my Mathematics teacher from Secondary 2 to Secondary 4. He has been a great help to my studies as my Math had improved significantly from an F9 to a B3. Being an intelligent teacher, with loads of great teaching skills particularly in Mathematics, Mr Gnan had taught me many short-cut techniques that had helped me greatly in tackling tougher questions that I could not solve previously. His patience in explaining the questions encourages me to not give up on my weakest subject, namely mathematics. In school, I was unable to understand the topic: Mensuration even when my math’s teacher explained to me repeatedly until she gave up on me for that particular topic. However, when I attended Mr Gnan’s class on Mensuration, I could understand the topic easily as his theorems are explained clearly to me. Mr Gnan is not only smart but he is also a very dedicated and passionate teacher. There was once when he ended work at 7.30pm and he was all packed up to go back home, but I just arrived at the tuition centre. When he saw me, he immediately put his bag down and prepared his lesson with me. From this, it shows how much passion he has in teaching, as he is willing to give up his personal time, as he desires his students to improve. Even on his rest days, he calls students back to render them extra help. This clearly proves that he is very focused on teaching and hardly spends any time for himself. No matter where he is or what time it is, he will always make sure to answer our enquires through Whatsapp before he goes to bed. Although Mr Gnan has a very good knowledge of Mathematics, he is constantly expanding his knowledge and strives to be a better teacher than he already is now. He is a role model to every student with his attitude of never giving up on learning and that every one of us will do well if we have the same attitude as him. I look up to him because I also want to become a passionate and dedicated teacher like him in the future so as to contribute to the society significantly. In my education path, Mr Gnan and you had made me improve tremendously and I am very thankful,
