About Me:

The classroom is my happy place! My passion lies in facilitating the intellectual growth of my students, ensuring that with every interaction, they leave with newfound knowledge and insights. In GP, we are always learning new things and perspectives, which makes this subject the perfect fit for me. This dedication to education has motivated me to devote the majority of my adult life and personal time to teaching or engaging in educational activities - which is why I've spent most of my adult life and free time in some form of classroom!

My students describe me as:

My students enjoy my classes because of my knack for blending knowledge with a good dose of humor, alongside clear and engaging explanations. They also appreciate how understanding I am, making the whole experience not just educational, but impactful.

What our students say

"Finn is an extremely dedicated tutor that never fails to make his classes enjoyable and entertaining. His unwavering support, be it as a friend or tutor, allowed me to attain a grade I could be proud of. Safe to say, he truly goes above and beyond as a tutor, impacting not just my grades, but my entire JC journey!"

- Jaylen Ang, ACJC

"Mr. Finn is a dedicated teacher who is always willing to go the extra mile to help his students.  He would craft his lessons such that they could cater to all the needs of his students, ensuring that everyone was on par, and even make time outside scheduled lessons to give students personalised help, which proved effective, especially in essay writing. He is an encouraging teacher who would not hesitate to recognise students’ improvements which was a source of motivation to keep pushing for higher goals. Mr Finn’s lessons are interesting given his humorous personality but there are always insightful points to take down which greatly helps in providing wider perspectives in brainstorming ideas. Being an approachable teacher, Mr Finn is someone whom students can look for guidance not only in GP but also in their future educational pathways."

- Han Meng, SAJC 2023

"Personally, I was never much of a reading enthusiast when it came to current affairs as many of the global developments felt very peripheral to my personal life. After my first lesson with Mr Finn, I was thoroughly impressed by the way he eloquently delivered a thought-provoking lesson. His genuine passion to expand our world view was infectious and ignited a flame of curiosity within me. Over the course of the year, he made an effort to get to know his students on a personal level, which helped him to identify the topics of interest of each student. This had allowed him to tailor his lessons to engage his students on a deeper level to help them develop strong foundational knowledge to not only score better, but to also ingrain critical thinking skills. What makes Mr Finn stand out from other tutors is the way he utilises his witty sense of humour to grasp the attention of his students to make mundane topics lively and engaging. His lessons are also well structured to inculcate sensitivity to the demands of the question and how to tackle them. In hindsight, being his student had definitely made me a more inquisitive and mature individual! I would definitely not mind retaining just to continue being taught by him!"
