NST Feature: When The Going Gets Tough

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.

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
