Thank You SMS from Caleb Gan (English Tuition)

Hello Adeline! It’s been a really REALLY wonderful three years being a student of yours! I am really glad to have such an inspiring teacher even though you’re only a tutor. I know we are not your most obedient students but you know what? Your English tuition class is the ONLY one I’ve ever looked forward to attending (really learnt a lot and enjoyed myself). Thank you for being SOOOOOOOOOO patient with all of us. I know I have gone overboard many times but that’s because I was not mature enough to realise it. Please forgive me! 🙂  Also, sorry for handing in all the slipshod work all these years! Sorry that you have to mark my horrible essays! I promise you that the work that I’ve handed in to you and the work that I’ll be handing in to Cambridge will be of different calibre! I PROMISE! I just want you to know that I feel very lucky to be your student for the past three years and really, NO amount of words can express the gratitude and respect I have for you. You’ve been very realistic with all of us and I’m grateful for that because not many teachers will be so upfront and tell us how terrible we are at the subject. I am glad that you entered this profession because it is teachers like you who inspire and make a lasting impact on students like me. 🙂  Last of all, I once read a memorable saying that goes, “Those who can, do. Those who REALLY can, teach.” 😀  Please continue to inspire students and do keep in touch with our class.

Caleb Gan, Coral Secondary School

Leon, thank you for helping and teaching both Qian and I for the whole year! 🙂  I’ve improved a lot since attending your class! Your maths tuition lessons are always very fun and enriching! I must say that you are a very entertaining teacher! 😀  I’ve learnt a lot from you and your worksheets are a real gem. It was thanks to you that I got an A1 for my A maths. 😀

P.S. Thank you for the ang bao! Haha…

Testimonial from Ryan Tan (English Tuition)

I could not believe my eyes when I first saw my O-Level result slip. I actually got an A1 for my English! It was a huge improvement and a great victory for me, and I could not have done it without Teacher Adeline. To me, she is one of a kind. She can relate to her students very well and is really good at making jokes. However, she can also be very serious when it comes to work. As a tutor, she is very committed to her students. She really wants to see everyone do well. I was in her class for only one year and I found it an extremely fun and enriching experience. I really like my English tuition class a lot and I think this sort of tuition is really hard to find.

Note from Ryan’s father – “Adeline, thank you for your care and effort! I feel very fortunate that you did not turn me down when I spoke to you about enrolling Ryan into your class. Do keep in touch with Ryan. Thanks again!”

Testimonial from Lin Yu Xiang (Maths Tuition)

Leon’s math tuition class has definitely exceeded my expectations! I found the error analysis exercises we did in class the most helpful. His lessons have helped me to truly grasp many of the mathematical concepts and I’ve learnt how to properly apply my knowledge of math which I didn’t quite get in school. I think Leon is very good at teaching and communicating and I have benefitted from his class greatly. The class environment was conducive and the study materials provided were extremely helpful. Two thumbs up!

Testimonial from Chua Qing Lin (English Tuition)

 

When I first stepped into Adeline’s English tuition class, I really did not know what to expect. I thought it would be another ordinary and boring tuition. However to my surprise, I really enjoyed the class! It has definitely benefited me a lot, especially in terms of essay writing techniques. I never knew that essays could be written this way! I think Adeline is a very interesting and knowledgeable person. She teaches very well and of all my tutors, she is the best. I hope I can do well and make her proud!

Thank you, Leon for always being so patient with us and for being such a great teacher! Thank you for making every maths tuition lesson so interesting and for entertaining all our questions. 🙂  Your explanation of maths concepts and notes on calculus are the best! Thanks again for your support and encouragement! 🙂

Yong Shi Qian, Singapore Chinese Girls’ School

Note from Shi Qian’s mother – “Hi Leon, I appreciate all your guidance for Shi Qian. Not only has she shown improvement, but more importantly, her interest in math has increased with your guidance. Thank you for all your effort and I will certainly recommend you to other parents.”

Testimonial from Nian Zhi & Zhi Yun (English Tuition)

Adeline is one of the best teachers I have ever met. Very funny, open-minded and unique! She conducts the most enjoyable and interesting English tuition class ever and it has definitely left a deep impact on me with many fond memories.

This has been an extremely fruitful journey. Tuition with Adeline has definitely strengthened my command of the English language and enhanced my ability to express myself. Adeline is very animated and humorous, but she takes her job seriously and is very committed to helping every student. I really like her teaching style and the many meaningful life lessons that she shared.

Testimonial from Elijah Han (Maths Tuition)

As a maths tutor, Leon is friendly, approachable and very knowledgeable. He provides clear explanations of the various topics and gives practical suggestions to improve myself. The exam strategies and techniques he’s taught me have been invaluable! I’ve never really been particularly interested or good at maths, but thanks to Leon, I went from an E8 and F9 (in Sec 3) to getting an A2 (E maths) and B3 (A maths) for my O-levels. I would never have been able to achieve these grades without him. Thanks for everything, Leon!

Testimonial from Benjamin Chia (English Tuition)

I was filled with apprehension and uncertainty when I first joined Adeline’s English tuition class. Thankfully, the class turned out to be SUPER GOOD and SUPER USEFUL! Besides my command of English, my general knowledge has also improved tremendously. Teacher Adeline is a great tutor and I feel very fortunate to be her student. Thanks again, Teacher Adeline! Without you, I don’t think I can ever score a B3 for my O-Level! Thank you so much! 🙂

Testimonial from Marcus Lim (Maths Tuition)

I can only think of one word to describe Teacher Leon’s math tuition class – excellent! He’s a patient and humorous teacher with an awesome personality! 🙂  He explains all the mathematical concepts very clearly and with great ease. The problem solving techniques he teaches are super useful. Teacher Leon’s class has definitely helped me a lot and I highly recommend him!

Adeline is a great tutor. She started teaching me when I was in secondary one and back then, my English was terrible (only managed to pass by a few marks). If it weren’t for her, I would not have seen such a big improvement in my English results. YES, I got an A1 for my N-Level! As an English tutor, Adeline is patient and has a ‘never give up’ attitude. Her lessons are also very fun! Without doubt, she has made a huge impact on me and helped me in countless ways. She’s like a friend to me.
