I'm currently a business student pursuing my Masters degree at the University of Bedfordshire and European International University. I have been professionally tutoring for 4+ years. So far, I have been tutoring classes for secondary school students nationwide. I was also an international-level debater and is currently coaching promising debaters in my Public Speaking, Debating & Critical Analysis (PSDCA) Program. I also manage several businesses in Malaysia.
I was born in beautiful Kuching, Sarawak in 2001 to two respectable teachers. I have always been an ambitious boy. I have attempted countless business projects in my lifetime, as early as the age of 13, hoping to achieve something on my own. Although there were many failures, I have learnt invaluable lessons that were able to propel me to today's successes.
I started my primary studies at a local Chinese school, SJK(C) Chung Hua Bt 4 1/2. I am able to converse, read and write in all three main languages in Malaysia. I was able to build a strong foundation in the English language as I often won school-level competitions and had the opportunity to represent the school in story-telling, choral speaking, public speaking, writing competitions and more. I continued my secondary studies at SMK Batu Lintang in the Pure Sciences stream. Throughout the five years, I was able to establish myself as an English debater, representing the school to various international-level tournaments. Apart from that, I was active in co-curricular activities which led me to being awarded President of the Best Club & Society in 2018. I am currently pursuing my degree in Finance & Economics from Taylor’s University and University of the West of England. I will be pursuing my Master’s of Business Administration at Asia e University in January 2022.
Breakthrough Junior Challenge
In 2017, while I was in Form 4, I came across the Breakthrough Junior Challenge organised by Breakthrough Initiatives (awarding body of Breakthrough Prize). The challenge was launched globally, inviting schoolchildren to submit 3-minute videos explaining a concept in Physics, Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics. I submitted my video on the Principle of Electromagnetic Induction, explaining the works of Michael Faraday and I ended up being one of the Top 10% Challengers globally. In 2019, I participated once again under the same topic and ended up being one of the Top 20% Challengers globally. Throughout the journey, I was able to come across many promising and bright future talents in Science around the world.
Since 2015, I have participated in debating tournaments across the country of various levels. Coming from a city with little debating activity, I had to fly across into the Klang Valley almost every fortnight to participate in tournaments. Throughout the journey, I was able to rake in several championships, speaker awards and experience in coaching and judging. In 2021, I was able to launch my self-developed Public Speaking, Debating & Critical Analysis (PSDCA) Program to train students in the art of speaking and persuasion. In its first year, I was able to conduct three classes of 30+ students from Malaysia and Singapore.
Entrepreneurship & Teaching
In my undergraduate years at Taylor’s University, I wanted to start my own business based in Selangor. At the end of 2019, I was able to put together my first tuition centre located in Bandar Kinrara, Puchong. Growing from just 15 students in 2019 to over 300 students in 2021, I have managed to launch my 2nd branch located in Setia Alam, Shah Alam. At the same time, I have written my first reference book for SPM in 2019 and created my modules for PT3 Science in 2021. I have also taught on YouTube and TikTok.

Apart from teaching, I spend my remaining time on managing several other businesses. As a Finance & Economics graduate with a passion for Marketing, I was able to establish several businesses in Malaysia in the education, real estate and retail industry.
Tuition Centre Chain
The first branch of Sri Sarjana Education Group in West Malaysia, located in Bandar Kinrara, Puchong. It first open its doors in 2019, bringing in students from the neighborhoods of Puchong and Bukit Jalil. The location features five state-of-the-art classrooms managed by a team of around ten tutors.
In less than two years, I was able to expand across Klang Valley to a second branch in Setia Alam, Shah Alam. The Setia Alam outlet has officially opened its doors in January 2021.
As of 2022, the online tuition wing of the group has also managed to guide 1,500+ students to success across Malaysia.
When the COVID-19 pandemic first hit in March 2020, I was able to swiftly respond to it by setting up a robust online tutoring infrastructure. Until today, I have successfully acquired students from every state in Malaysia and international students from Singapore. Using cutting edge education technology that I have developed, students are able to have an effective studying environment online. Apart from weekly online classes, I have also organised various LIVE workshops, uploaded videos on YouTube and TikTok and have spoken at online seminars.
Finance & Investment
On the side, I am also involved in investments. I have experience in technical analysis and have invested for a few years in the Malaysian stock market (KLSE), FOREX and cryptocurrency. In 2020, I was the President for the Bursa Young Investor Club (BYIC) at Taylor’s University and I had the chance to deliver several investment programs to the students including a two-part stock investing workshop.
