Ingel Soong of Ingel Soong Tuition Centre tells us about tutoring Math, chemistry, and physics.
Tell us about you, your career, and how you founded Ingel Soong Tuition Centre.
Ingel Soong: Ingel Soong Tuition Centre was founded to help students to 1) first cope and keep pace with their studies, 2) gain interest, confidence, and motivation, and 3) achieve their desired grades. We exist to change the life trajectories of our students.
Do you have small habits that made a meaningful impact on your life and business?
Ingel Soong: I wake up early every morning to prepare for my lessons. This way, I stay well-prepared for the day.
How does Ingel Soong Tuition Centre market its product/services online?
Ingel Soong: We do minimal marketing or advertising for our tuition classes. Our tuition services get around mainly through word of mouth from ex-students and parents.
Who are your competitors? And how do you plan to stay in the game?
Ingel Soong: The tuition industry is big, and probably every educational service provider could be deemed as one. We differentiate ourselves by being one of the only few centers that can integrate concepts from mathematics, physics, and chemistry. We draw analogies between the atomic structure from Chemistry, gravitational fields from Physics, and differential equations from Mathematics. Very few centers can do this integration. But we all strive and work for the betterment of the students.
Tell us a customer success story of yours.
Ingel Soong: It is hugely satisfying for us when a student destined to be retained in JC1 joins us and becomes the top of his junior college cohort. And similar cases keep repeating, whether in Chemistry, Physics, or Mathematics. So this gives us the confidence that we have the know-how and understand what clicks.
Ingel Soong: Your final thoughts?
Ingel Soong: Being a tuition teacher is a noble profession, and I am glad to partake in this life-changing journey.
