Patrick was born and raised in Malaysia before moving to Singapore to study when he was 20. After obtaining his degree in Mechanical Engineering from NTU in 2003, he trained and taught as a MOE teacher. Shortly after, he transitioned to teaching at major tuition centres such as Mavis, Stalford and Solomon Lab before venturing into full-time home tutoring.
Teaching goes beyond qualifications and experience, it requires heart and passion. While there are many contentious perceptions of private tutors, Patrick believes in its profession. Patrick started Learning Smart as he believes that every tutor has a purpose: to guide and inspire students. To date, Patrick has a growing network of 50 tutors and conducts regular trainings and sharing sessions with them.
