About Tutor:

Hi! Welcome to EnglishTuition.org.

I'm Darren Chow, a full-time English tutor specializing in teaching English. I graduated from NUS in 2001, majoring in Sociology. My teaching career started in 2014. I started out giving 1 to 1 English tuition at students' homes. At the same time, I enrolled myself in a private teaching course (approved by Council of Private Education), which I eventually passed out from with a Diploma in Teaching English. Even though I was still new at teaching at that time, I was encouraged by the feedback that I had gotten from both students and parents.

In 2015, I was offered a teaching job with MOE, teaching physical education and English. Miraculously, I passed the fitness test required to teach PE. I took the plunge as I wanted to try out teaching in a school environment. I taught at Shuqun Secondary for about 6 months but eventually decided not to sign the bond as I missed the close interactions that I got with my students when I was giving private tuition. So I left and started giving private tuition again. Today, I mostly teach small group tuition to primary, secondary and JC students. For more information on my profile, please visit the about me page.
