My research focus on developing childrens’ understanding and motivation in preschool learning and designing teaching module to promote social and cognitive development. As a teacher, I was concern with the childrens’ need towards learning approach and providing teaching aids to gain best experiences in early childhood.

In 2008, I am completed my undergraduate degree from Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) in Preschool Education. I work as research officer for about one and half year before pursuing my doctorate in July, 2010. I graduated in 2014 with a Ph.D in Educational Psychology at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM).
