What do his students think?

 
The way Teacher Theo teaches in class is very in-depth as compared to in school, explaining words, giving different tips and tricks and giving all of us feedback on our work and how we can improve. This year is the first time I got an A for English!

Ms Farah

(Primary Creative Writing &

Elite English Paper 2)

Ms Farah is a passionate educator who has more than 5 years of teaching English under her belt.  Her  students gain confidence in communication skills under her guidance, at the same time honing their critical thinking skills. Ms Farah also uses newspaper articles in her lessons and shares general knowledge and current affairs.

What do her students think?

Ms Farah is a very thorough teacher. She goes through questions and explains them until we understand. She also tells us what our weaknesses are in Paper 2 so that we can work on them. Ever since joining Ms Farah’s class, I have improved in the Comprehension Open-Ended and MCQ sections.

Isabel Koh (PLMGPS)

Ms Farah is a very kind teacher. She is patient and does not scold us when we make mistakes. Instead, she would explain what we did wrong and how we can improve. Her lessons are thoroughly enjoyable. She plans fun learning activities for us such as Kahoot and Hangman. Ms Farah also uses newspaper articles in her lessons. They help to expand our range of vocabulary and give us an idea of what is currently happening around us. As such, I always look forward to her lessons every week! 

In only three months, my grades have improved from an AL2 (86%) to an AL1 (92%). I have learnt many techniques to answer Synthesis & Transformation questions as well as the Comprehension section. As a result of the many challenging papers I’ve tackled, my weakness, Comprehension Cloze, has now become my strength. Due to Ms Farah’s effective teaching methods, I have learnt many ways of answering different variations of Paper 2 questions. I would certainly recommend going for Ms Farah’s English Paper 2 class if you ever need a reliable English tutor!

She is an ex-HOD (English) with over 20 years of teaching experience, and uses well-developed teaching materials and methods. She specialises in Secondary English and focuses on writing skills.

What do her students think?

I'm grateful to Ms Shah for helping me improve my English skills, for example in Vocabulary, Grammar and model structures. I find her teaching easy to grasp. She also helps us enjoy her tuition classes. My grades improved from B4 to A2 after taking Ms Shah's classes.

Lee Zheng Xi Ambrose (Whitley Secondary School)

Ms Shah's lessons are very special. She makes the lesson as fun as possible so that we can have fun. She also uses different teaching methods for us to understand the concepts better. When we are confused or stuck on a question, she will go out of her way and try to help us. Ever since joining her class, my grade improved from AL6 (PSLE result) to A1 (77%). My vocabulary and sentence structure were my weaknesses in Primary school but I have improved tremendously. Ms Shah is a wonderful teacher and deserves the recognition! 

Jessie Sou (KCPSS)

Ms Shah's lessons are very fun and interesting. She uses different techniques and ways to teach us so that we can easily understand. My results improved a lot through her lessons. At the end of the year, I scored an A for my final paper!

Ms Jessie Ong

(Primary English Paper 2 & Lower Secondary English)

Ms Jessie Ong has more than 30 years of teaching experience and is up-to-date on the current syllabus and teaching techniques. Her students are highly motivated and show improvement in both their academic results and their attitude towards learning.

What do her students think?

I first joined Ms Ong in Primary three. When I came to her, my English grades were ranging from a B to a very low A. I still remembered the day I joined her class starkly as something had happened to me. As I was used to being spoon-fed with answers, I approached her and asked, “What is the meaning of this word?” She replies kindly, “Try it first. That’s the way in my classes, you try, and I will teach you if you get it wrong.” Ever since that day, my English results started to show some forms of improvement, from a “B” to an “A” to an “A*”. 

Lim Zhi Yong (St. Gabriel's Primary)

Ms Ong’s lessons have taught me the grammar rules and how to apply them at the right times. She has also instilled good habits in me when doing Paper 2 for English. I really appreciate her effort for helping me understand my English MCQs, vocabulary and grammar rules better.

She gives clear instructions and often provides us with feedback on how we can improve. She is a very caring teacher. I think a good point about Ms Ong is that she cracks jokes in class from time to time so that learning isn’t always dull and boring. 

I recommended Ms Ong’s PSLE Oral workshop to a friend of mine and he commented that he found the workshop useful and had applied the oral skills taught during his PSLE Oral exam.

Ms Li
(Primary & Secondary Mathematics)

She has been teaching Mathematics for over 10 years and is familiar with the Mathematics syllabus. She loves interacting with children and will try different methods to let the children understand all the Math topics.

What do her students and parents think?

After joining Ms Li class this year, I have improved greatly. I can now solve problems sums related to fractions using the proper sophiscated way, instead of the long arduous one by understanding the concepts of fractions better. I scored 92 for my latest paper.

Baik Joon Ha (Mayflower Primary)

 

 

I find Ms Li’s lessons enjoyable and I was able to understand the topics better in Mathematics. In secondary school, I noticed how I improved from C’s to B’s and now I’m scoring A2 for Math!

Kellie Yeo (AMKSS)

Kindly help to convey this thank you message to Ms Li. Xin Ying saw a big improvement in Maths which she was struggling with and she didn't like word problems. During Term 3, she got only 60 marks. However, after joining Ms Li, she was able to get score 90 marks during the final exam (highest mark among all subjects), and Maths became her favourite subject. Moreover, Xin Ying also got the "Star Learner Award" from school.

Ms Fernandez
(Secondary Mathematics)

She has taught Maths for 9 years and is well-versed in all streams of the Maths syllabus. Her teaching methodology consists of going through topics from scratch to bridge the gaps in understanding, providing in-depth explanations to worksheets as well as providing detailed mind-maps of formulae and key concepts. She also uploads videos after lessons so that her students can revisit topics at their own time.

What do her students think?

Ms Fernandez is an outstanding teacher who taught me from Secondary 1 to 4. Before joining Ms Fernandez’s class, I was performing borderline for Maths. After joining, I performed very well for my lower secondary Maths such that I was handpicked to do A Maths for the N Level exam. I benefited greatly from Ms Fernandez as she is thorough in her overview of the topics, gives detailed explanations and shows clearly labelled, step-by-step workings which I can refer to when I self-study at home. Outside of the classroom, Ms Fernandez answered questions via WhatsApp which helped me cope with my school workload. In addition to that, I sat in for multiple sessions with Ms Fernandez before my N Level and O level exams which boosted my confidence in E and A Maths.

Jade Ng (CHIJ Toa Payoh)

 

Ms Fernandez taught me for 4 years up till my N Level Exam. I am grateful to have a teacher like her. Her lessons are very easy to understand and she goes through the whole topic from scratch. We write down the notes in class and attempt questions together using detailed workings. When I have difficulties with my school work, I can bring them to tuition and Ms Fernandez will explain them to me thoroughly. I can also text Ms Fernandez directly should I have any questions and especially when I am too shy to voice out in class. I have developed a confidence in Maths and a love for the subject ever since joining Mdm Yip’s. Before joining Ms Fernandez’s class, I was scoring 60+ marks but after joining, I scored 87% at my N Level Prelim exam.
