After 2 semesters spent helping students improve their essays, presentations and English communication, Mira believes in helping tutees find their own personal processes to help convey their ideas concisely and coherently. Having spent the majority of her life learning French as a second language, she knows the ins and outs of language learning and wholeheartedly understands the frustrations that may come along with it. She strives to create a safe space for hashing out ideas, practicing your writing and communication skills, and developing your personal voice.

Having attended an international school for the majority of her life, Win has always enjoyed conversing with people from different backgrounds and cultures. She was one of the communication tutors who was purely recruited for the Communication Hub when it was newly formed. During tutoring sessions, it is of utmost importance to her to help tutees feel comfortable and safe to engage in a casual conversation or practise their presentations with her. It is very heartwarming for her when her tutees perform well for their presentations and send her a ‘thank-you’ message or when she sees her tutee gain confidence in their conversational English. She hopes to share useful tips and tricks, and help tutees overcome any form of difficulty to effortlessly become effective orators. Besides being a communication peer tutor, Win loves to travel, sing her heart out in the shower, and watch English TV shows and sitcoms.
