For A Dear Teacher Adeline,
As a returning Singaporean who studied in an international school overseas for 13 years, we are anxious and wonder how is our son, Jonas going to keep up with the Singapore academic regime when he enters the local Secondary school.
We know our son Jonas has never been anywhere near the model student in terms of showing consistency in his learning attitude nor meeting his learning goals and grades. After joining Teacher Adeline’s classes in Secondary 2, the only constant in his learning attitude is that he enjoys going for her classes every week and never once complained about not going or requesting to drop out of class like he normally does! So thank you very, very much for your patience, time and creative teachings and interesting small group tuition classes for Jonas throughout these years Teacher Adeline! We got a pleasant surprise and are very pleased that he got an A2 for his English in his recent GCE O-levels for Year 2018! Overtime, with his piqued interests in comprehension and inferring skills, we believe this is the reason why he has also done well in his other English language subjects for Social Studies and History for O-levels, scoring another A2!
A shout-out to Teacher Adeline for taking time with your insights and inputs on Jonas’ personal write-ups, interview tips and preparation for the Early Admissions Exercise (EAE). After going through a few rounds of the aptitude tests, impromptu written tests and group interviews, Jonas was shortlisted and secured a letter of conditional offer with the polytechnic and choice of his course!
Jonas is blessed to have you as his English Tutor and his guiding angel! Now he’s got a decent O-levels certificate and is awaiting to kick-start his new beginnings in Poly for the April 2019 intake. Thank you for keeping and putting up with Jonas throughout his Secondary years! With utmost appreciation for your help, time and support. 😁
Best wishes and respectfully,
Mrs Goh (Jonas’ mom)
