Testimonial from Joshua Ong (English Tuition)

I was in Adeline’s English tuition class for four years and I really learnt a lot from her. The class has broadened my horizons and made me more open to new ideas and different views. Adeline is a very knowledgeable and funny tutor. She is able to help her students understand things easily by giving lots of examples and telling interesting stories.

Thanks, Adeline! I feel very honoured to be under your guidance. Thank you for being such an engaging and fun teacher. 🙂

Testimonial from Tricia Chan (Maths Tuition)

Leon’s math tuition class has definitely improved my grades. I didn’t fail math anymore which is a huge improvement for me as I was failing badly since the start of secondary 3. Leon is VERY good at explaining everything and I’m grateful that I had the opportunity to ask questions and clear all my doubts during class. I believe this was of paramount importance to my improvement (F9 to B3 for my O-Levels). His class also gave me exposure to a wide spectrum of math problems, where I learnt how to apply different techniques and strategies to help me score better for my exams.

Leon, you are awesome! 🙂  Thank you for all that you have done!

Teach to Learn and Learn to Teach

Einstein Quote - Explain it Simply

To learn something well, teach it to someone else. It’s like looking into the mirror of your mind. If your teachings are well understood, it means you have clarity. If not, deeper understanding is required. Einstein once said, “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.”

Hence, teaching to learn and learning to teach are sides of the same coin. A great teacher is a greater learner.
