NST Feature: When The Going Gets Tough

Image
Grateful to be featured in the New Straits Times alongside awesome teachers, Cikgu Nor Azizah Md Nordin from SMK Kemumin, Kota Baru, & Cikgu Thiba Lakshmii from Pusat Tuisyen Sinar Idealis, Klang. Thank you, Mr Izwan Ismail & NST for highlighting our YouTube channels. I hope that they'll be useful to every student in need of extra guidance. 🤩 This piece of recognition was a pretty timely boost because I was really down this morning after discovering a few students going afk during my online teaching session. Their devices were logged into Jitsi (a free Zoom alternative) but when I asked for responses... nothing. This happened multiple times. Even at the end, when I said bye, I waited for 1 minute to no response. 😔 I spent a few hours after that licking my wounds & wondering if I was being too demanding or expecting too much. I realized that I can go the cynical path, but I can't be an effective teacher if I don't believe that they can/want to improve. I have t

Kenapa Cikgu Rasuah Pelajar Mengikuti Kelas?

Image
Inilah sebabnya cikgu bagi top up RM10 sebulan kepada pelajar yang mengikuti kelas atas talian. Cikgu yang mengeluarkan duit untuk membantu pelajar tolong angkat tangan! Sekolah dah tutup. PdPR dah berlangsung dalam talian / secara jarak jauh. Dah bermula juga kecaman macam-macam terhadap guru Malaysia. Sesetengah keyboard warriors Malaysia ini macam otaknya tertinggal di zaman neolitik. Kalau nak kritik, boleh. Kritik la dengan otak sikit. Tapi ini bagai air beriak tanda tak dalam. (Cikgu memang minat peribahasa Melayu.) Sampai waktu cikgu buat ceramah SPM percuma di YouTube (pautan ada di bawah) pun ada orang buat fake account & kacau di live chat / ruangan komen & dislike video-video cikgu. Lepas disekat pula, buka akaun lain & kacau lagi! Inilah asal usul troll . Lepas habis sekolah, jadi pula troll dewasa di media social. Dari PKP bulan Mac dulu, bila cikgu nak bantu & beri ganjaran top up kepada pelajar yang mengikuti kelas atas talian cikgu, banyak yang PM cikgu

Image
Tolong share/forward webinar percuma ini kepada rakan-rakan/saudara-mara yang bakal menduduki peperiksaan SPM 2020! Walaupun topik adalah ujian Bahasa Inggeris SPM 1119, webinar ini tetap akan disampaikan dalam Bahasa Melayu demi membantu pelajar yang berasa kurang senang dengan BI. Objektif utama adalah anda memahami cara takel ujian tersebut. Bukannya untuk show-off kehebatan England cikgu. Harapan cikgu adalah pelajar yang hadir boleh lulus dengan senang melalui konsep-konsep/tip-tip/cara-cara yang telah cikgu hasilkan dan tambahbaik selama lebih daripada sedekad! Cikgu mempunyai ramai anak-anak didik yang lemah dalam BI & telah gagal dalam ujian BI sepanjang kehidupan mereka. Tetapi banyak di kalangan mereka akhirnya lulus dengan bimbingan cikgu. Cikgu harapkan yang sama & lebih baik lagi untuk anda semua. Amin. Pautan kepada YouTube Live untuk kedua-dua webinar ini boleh dijumpa menggunakan QR Code dalam poster diatas.

Such an honor to be invited to participate in this meaningful campaign! #FemaleEmpowerment In this video, I read a story from Bangladesh called " The Politician: Sheikh Hasina " by HerStory Foundation and illustrated by Najmun Nahar Keya. I conclude by speaking about the importance of an information diet & how we should take care of it the way we take care of our food diet. This video is part of the " Read At Home: The Gadis Chapter " campaign, which is a one month collaborative literacy campaign organized by MYReaders and Taylor’s Girl Up . The aim of this campaign is to empower and inspire young girls in the community as well as increase awareness about the literacy situation in Malaysia.
