Mr Rizal is both an experienced and passionate educator. He has the ability to customize his approach to teaching to meet individual student’s needs. He has taught high-achieving pupils as well as those who need much needed help in reinforcing the foundations of subject mastery.
Mr Rizal has taught English, Math and Science at Upper Primary levels, of which 7 years were spent teaching Primary 6 classes. He often uses ICT to engage pupils attention to the lesson/subject matter at hand as well as enhance pupils understanding. He firmly believes in mindmapping and uses it extensively to get pupils to consolidate their learning – especially for Science and beginning as early as Primary 3.
Mr Rizal’s lessons are never dull and sombre with productive interactions and questionings. Out of the many success stories he has, he remembers one vividly as he had helped a pupil scoring U grade for math at the beginning of the year and eventually achieving a C grade despite having only less than 8 months to prep him for PSLE! He believes that pupils must be made aware and be proactive in their own learning and aims for them to be self-directed learners and critical thinkers of tomorrow.
