Meet eKelas Tutor Moms And Dads: How Maxis Employees Become Engaging Teachers
Singing, acting and even rapping? That was how our employees jazzed things up for our eKelas students. Their unique lesson plans created a lively and engaging learning experience, and the students loved it! 22 Maxis employees became tutor moms and dads for a day in conjunction with Mother’s and Father’s Day, for eKelas students at participating Pusat Internet 1Malaysia (PI1M) centres across 10 states.
The tutor moms and dads were already familiar with the syllabus having had to coach their own children in doing their homework and during exams. Beyond that, they also shared study tips and motivated the students to do better. To ensure that they were comfortable in facing a classroom full of students, Maxis moms and dads first went through a fun training session that included vigorous classroom simulations.
Excited tutors couldn’t wait to try the newly acquired skills. One tutor mom, Nadia Nishaa Binti Shamsuri from People & Organisation shared, “The children were really interactive as my materials also included top songs they could relate to!” Another tutor mom, Nur Elina Wong Abdullah from Sales & Service, even conducted her class virtually from Menara Maxis. “Teaching virtually is a bit different as I can’t be there with the students physically. So I used my voice, called out their names and kept asking how they were doing. The important thing was to have fun with the students,” she said.
Paving the way to future-proof its townships, renowned developer Gamuda Land and Maxis, Malaysia’s leading converged communications and digital services company, have formed a strategic partnership to appoint Maxis as the preferred connectivity and solutions provider to create Malaysia’s first Maxis-delivered 5G township for Gamuda Cove, Gamuda Land’s latest township development, when 5G is eventually launched in the country.
Maxis Berhad (Maxis) delivered a steady performance driven by a resilient core mobile business, with its convergence strategy firmly mobilised and gaining momentum towards its next phase of growth.
