With a Diploma in Business Studies offered by the University of London, a Cambridge International Diploma for Teachers and Trainers as well as a Certificate of Educational Studies in Public Speaking; Ms Amar Jit attributes her interest in teaching to her daughter’s preschool experience. She joined as a preschool teacher at Smart Readers Worldwide in Malaysia, and continued to develop her understanding of best teaching practices as she pursued a Certificate in Teacher’s Training. She was awarded a Dedicated Teacher’s Recognition Certificate in 2004. Opting for a career change, she worked with children 7 to 12 years of age from diverse backgrounds in schools in Singapore and Malaysia whilst concurrently training working adults to improve their English.
