About The Tutor

IMG_1423Dr Daniel Ling MK, PhD, was previously a MOE Teaching Award holder and had the experience of teaching Science, in particular Physics, in a SAP school for a few years. He also has more than 16 years of Math and Physics tutoring experiences, in which he had taught students from various top schools such as Raffles Girls’ School, Dunman High School, Catholic High School (CHS), Nanyang Girls’ High School, Nanhua High School, ACS(Independent), SJI, School of the Arts, Xinmin Sec School, Holy Innocents’ High School, Raffles Institution (formerly Raffles JC), National JC, St Andrew JC, Serangoon JC, Nanyang JC, Jurong JC, Tampines JC etc.

Beside his tutoring experiences, Dr Daniel is also an associate teacher at MDIS College College, where he teaches Physics and/or Mathematics to both local and international students under the schools’ O/A Levels preparatory courses.

When he was a student, Dr Daniel started to develop some study methods to help in his revision when he was young. These study methods, coupled with his strong sense of determination, had helped Daniel score 3A* and 1A in his PSLE examinations. With further improvement and practice, Daniel has managed to use these strategies to help him score 7 distinctions in his GCE ‘O’ level examinations. The same set of techniques enabled Daniel to score all As and Bs during his university study at NUS.

Over the years, Dr Daniel has made numerous enhancements to these study techniques and exam strategies. These study strategies were further reinforced during his course of work as a MOE teacher as well as an associate teacher at MDIS College and OSAC College.

Dr Daniel possesses a PhD in Education from Asia e University, a bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering (2nd Upper Hons) from NUS, a Post-Graduate Diploma in Education (Credit) from NIE, a MBA from Australian Institute of Business and a Master of Education (M.Ed) from Aspen University, United States, specializing in curriculum development and outcome assessment.
