Penciltutor prides itself on its team of dedicated teachers. By constantly modifying our pedagogies, we keep abreast with current teaching methodologies and ground-breaking educational research findings by established universities. This is why it will come as no surprise that we prepare our own teaching plans (which include iPad based e-Learning), lecture notes, tutorial questions, mid-year and final year examination papers. And guess what? We give away all these materials to our students without charging them a material fee.
