GOOD SCHOOL WRITTEN TESTIMONIALS
ENGLISH E8 TO B3 IN 8 MONTHS
Arden Koh, Monfort Secondary School
At the end of Sec 3, I was doing very badly in English. I was failing with an E8 and D7. I got to know Mr Tan as he was recommended by my math tuition teacher. He taught me many things about English that I was totally unaware of. I used to think that reading many books was the only way to score well in English. When O levels were coming closer, Mr Tan was kind enough to offer his tuition center as a conducive place for me to study. It really helped me. With my constant hard work and his guidance, I was able to improve from E8 to B3 for English O levels.
ENGLISH C6 TO A1 IN 8 MONTHS
Royston Lye, Mayflower Secondary School
I always had this misconception that English was a subject that could not be studied for and I always hated English. My grade was C6 before joining. My school teachers always just gave us answers without explanations. Mr Tan is very funny and he makes me interested in the lesson. The Centre is very conducive. I'm able to clarify all my doubts and teacher Weijie goes the extra mile to offer assistance (giving feedback for all oral mock tests). I scored A1 for O levels, improving from a C6. I would definitely recommend Good School to my friends and juniors because the teachers here truly care and want me to do well.
ENGLISH C5 TO A1 IN 4 MONTHS
Jonathan Goh, Maris Stella High School
I was scoring 18/30 for sec 3 End of Year and Sec 4 prelim 1 Oral exam, as I did not do any sort of practice for my oral back then. Thus, I decided that in order to get my A1, I had to start pulling up my socks and prove to the teachers and my friends what I am capable of … After all these 2 months of hard work, I had the oral exam just last week. On that day, I walked into the exam hall confidently, aiming for a 6-mark improvement. In the end, I achieved my target with a 7 for Reading Aloud and 17 for Spoken Interaction, graded by the strictest teacher (we are allowed to choose the teacher that we want to be tested by). Some of my friends said that I was just lucky, but they will know that I am more than that when you see me on Good School's TV next year, with my picture taken with Mr Tan and having the caption: "English: From C5 to A1". Listen to Mr Tan and start practicing now. Yes, NOW. My only regret is not starting in sec 3.
Before joining Good School for Amaths tuition, I felt that the subject was going to present me a challenge and that scoring a distinction wouldn’t be easy. Nevertheless, the lucid explanation by Mr Zhang has made Amaths significantly easier and applying concepts to questions wasn’t a problem. Additionally, his lessons are often filled with jokes and laughter, making classes more enjoyable and entertaining even when the stress level is high. Still, his unrelentless support and even on whatsapp have been a constant source of motivation for us to work harder and eventually score a distinction. I definitely would recommend Mr Zhang to other students facing difficulties with the subject.
Mr Teo is an amazing teacher who is very committed to helping his students improve their grades and make sure they have a clearer understanding in the complexity of chemistry. Lessons are never boring with his teachings as he occasionally jokes with us and brighten the day. Through his help on whatsapp, I would conveniently clarify my doubts and solve the problem as soon as possible. Eventually, I manage to do well for my O levels and felt that my knowledge about Chemistry was much better.
ENGLISH D7 TO A2 IN 5 MONTHS
Chee Guo Hao, Nan Chiau High School
Mr Tan is a caring and understanding tutor who teachers differently than other teachers. He has helped me in my essay writings and is very patient. He would always explain the questions repeatedly until we understood. Action speaks louder than words and I can see the difference in my results and my work. I never knew that I had to prepare for English till I started lessons. D7 for prelim 1, C5 for prelim 2 and A2 for O levels.
ENGLISH E8 TO B3 IN 8 MONTHS
Rachel Lai, Xinmin Secondary School
I almost gave up on English when I first came to Good School, as I always felt that English could not be taught. I have been scoring borderline passes and the worst was E8 during my mid-year in secondary 4. After joining the classes, I realized that actually English could be learnt if taught in a proper way. In school, lessons were just going through test papers after test papers, but here there are proper techniques to answering certain questions and they helped me to understand what I was learning. Usually, English lessons are boring but Mr Tan was able to add some humour into boring topics and make it interesting. It is convenient for students who want to study and eat at the same time, as it is very flexible here. I was able to apply the skills that I learnt into my exams. I could see the results of about 6 months' worth of hard work at the end when I got a 5-grade improvement. I would recommend others this place as the teachers here know the right techniques to teach and are always very approachable if we are in need of help.
ENGLISH E8 TO C6
Wang Bohan, Monfort Secondary School
Mr Tan uses an unique and interesting way to teach English. I did not even think about passing my English for O levels before meeting Mr Tan. I used to get E8 for my English and I don't understand a single thing the teacher taught in school. Mr Tan's lesson is very clear as he uses the Math approach to teach English and I was strongly impressed by that. After his tuition, I sensed that English has become easier for me gradually and a pass for English becomes achievable. Mr Tan not only teaches me useful methods but also motivate me and inspire me to want to do well for myself.
Cheong Yee Chern, Yio Chu Kang Secondary School
For English, I thought that there was little that can be done to improve. Here at Good School, the methods used to teach us are different from those from school. Mr Tan's lessons are interesting. I am able to clarify my doubts with Mr Tan on Whatsapp and he would reply as soon possible. Mr Tan encourages me not to give up and to push on. He set goals with me to work towards O levels. I had a 3 grade improvement. The teachers will try everything to help you improve.
ENGLISH C6 TO B4 IN 12 MONTHS
Earl, Compassvale Secondary School
I didn't know how to make preparations for my upcoming English exams. For English, I scored a C6 for the recent preliminary exams. Mr Tan uses interactive methods such as testing us after teaching us new skills that are more beneficial than just doing past-year papers and going through the papers. The class size is small compared to the classes in school which allows me to have more time to ask Mr Tan questions. I am able to ask him by using Whatsapp. After 12 months of tuition at Good School, i improved by 2 grades and scored a B4 for my O level English. I would strongly recommend Good School as the class size is small and there is a study area for students to study in silence or ask questions which makes it a conducive learning environment.
ENGLISH E8 TO C6
Liu Zizhan, Monfort Secondary School
I felt happy and grateful joining Mr Tan's class. Before joining the class, my English results were terrible and inconsistent. But Mr Tan has a unique way to teach that makes English an easy subject. I was scoring E8 in school before I joined Good School and scored C6 for my O levels. Mr Tan can make lessons really fun and keep me attentive during the 2 hours. Thank you Mr Tan! :D
ENGLISH C6 TO B4 IN 8 MONTHS
Amanda Mah Xiu Min, Compassvale Secondary School
I feel that English is a subject that I can do well just that I needed to read more, practise more and have someone to guide me. The lessons here were different in terms of the structured methods that are taught in tuition centre as compared to those in school. The tutor was clear in his explanation and was very patient when conducting his lessons. If we were unsure, he would try to explain until we understood. I feel that the study area here is conducive for me to do my TYS and timed practices. It's great that i can still get to ask questions via Whatsapp out of lesson time. I had a 2 grade improvement and scored B4 for O level English in 8 months! Yes, i would definitely recommend because the methods used were not taught in school and it's useful and the teacher was very patient with us.
ENGLISH B4 TO B3
Before I joined, I was never motivated to learn English. I scored B4 for CA2. Other English lessons were not engaging. Here, the tutor, Mr Tan, is very dedicated in teaching English and lessons are very interesting. He is very patient in answering all my questions online and I'm extremely grateful to have such a tutor. The study area is extremely conducive. I was able to clarify all doubts on Whatsapp. Subsequently, i scored B3 in the O levels. I would definitely recommend Good School Learning Hub because the way the tutor conducted the lessons made me like English and want to strive to do well in it.
ENGLISH B4 TO A1 IN 4 MONTHS
Chia Yasmin, Bowen Secondary School
I didn't think that I would get any higher than a B3 for English. Mr Tan always put in his 100% effort in all of our English classes which really inspired me to strive for the best in my English exams. In other tuition centres, they never taught English as well as Mr Tan. I think i only paid attention during class because Mr Tan made English more interesting and he always clarified our doubts during class. It was probably because of that I wanted to write more essays for him and not just decide then and there that my results should stay stagnant. I appreciated the fact that leading up to the O levels, Mr Tan would let us switch classes to fit our schedules whilst also keeping the class relatively small and easy to attend to everyone. In about 4 months I managed to jump from a B4 to an A1 in English. I would definitely recommend Good School to my juniors because I feel that Good School has a good system in teaching English, especially in Mr Tan's classes because he gave me some hope in a subject I thought had defeated me.
ENGLISH D7 TO C5
Zenise Tey, Compassvale Secondary School
Before coming to the Good School, I didn’t know how to really prepare myself for English and English was a very big concern to me. However, after I join Good School, the tutor was very patient and he used different ways for us to visualize how to understand English better. Also, he provided us with much information that our teachers in school didn't provide us with. Before joining, i scored D7 for English, but because of his constant effort in pushing me, i scored a C5 for English. I would definitely recommend Good School Learning Hub for my friends and relatives because the teachers here are very patient and they provide us with good explanations.
ENGLISH B3 TO A1
Tan Hui Qing, CHIJ St Nicholas Girl's School
Before attending the lessons at Good School, I was unsure of how I should prepare myself for English. It was always a gamble as I could score rather well sometimes, but I would do badly other times. WIth the aid of the structured lessons at Good School, as well as the patient and meitculous guidance of Mr Tan, i was able to approach the subject with much more confidence. I was able to understand what I was doing at each section which then aided me in applying the skills and formulas learnt at Good School. Additionally, the lessons at Good School were very comprehensive and interesting. I also enjoyed the small class size as it allowed lessons to be more interactive! Mr Tan was also very helpful and willing to clear our doubts whenever i was confused. This helped me to keep up with all knowledge taught in class. Eventually, this led to me having a 2 grade improvement for English and I scored A1 for my O levels English examination. I would definitely recommend the class for anyone who is unclear about how to approach English.
ENGLISH C6 TO B3
AMATH D7 TO B3 IN 8 MONTHS
Before I embarked on my journey with Good School, I've always felt that English was a language that cannot be improved on. To me, it was just about how you convey the message across, never about vocabulary, grammar, sentence structure… I scored a C6 for my recent SA1. In school, the lessons were just about practice papers. Even if there were consultations, it's in big groups and often rushed. However, in Good School, things are different. the lessons are often conducted in a fun way. In other tuition centres, I often feel tensed and nervous as to how the teachers would fight their way through and force the correct answers down out throat, but here, it was mainly about understanding how our answers come about and how we should tackle the questions the right way. Mr Tan teaches with various techniques. For example, to make sure the PEEL is well-written, he comes up with methods that can guarantee you good grades but only if you FOLLOW EVERYTHING HE SAYS! I had a 3 grade jump from C6 to B3. i would definitely recommend everyone to join Good School!
Since I've taken A maths in Sec 3, I've never passed A Maths before. Teacher would often explain how the answers come about, but I can never fully understand. In Good School, Mr Zhang always tell me to think far and tackle the problems one by one, topic by topic. In the past, i only focus on the final answer. But now, I focus mainly on progress and how to derive each step. I went from doing 10 questions a week to 60 questions a week. This is because of how Mr Zhang has motivated me and make sure I remain positive through this O level journey. I went from a D7 to B3 in 8 months. If you see no hope in your Amaths now, don't give up! Join Good School and work step by step towards your goal! This is definitely a life-changing journey!
CHEMISTRY D7 TO A2
Leong Ee Han Daniel, Maris Stella High School
I felt that Chemistry was a terrible subject in which I scored only F9 throughout my whole secondary 3 life. However, the lessons provided here were interactive and engaging. This allowed me to regain the interest in chemistry which I once had. The tutor, Mr Teo brought out videos that showed us the wonderful world of chemistry [Explosive reactions]. He was also very amicable and acted more as a friend than a teacher. I was also able to spend my time to clarify doubts with him. The centre was also conducive for studying. My grades improved from C6/D7 to an A2 for my O's. I would recommend this centre to my friends.
ENGLISH B3 TO A1 IN 2 MONTHS
Hwee Yan, CHIJ Toa Payoh Secondary
I had started English tuition at Good School 2 months before the actual O levels. The lesson that I took at Good School has really precise and informative as teacher, Mr Tan has developed certain methods and techniques to assist me in the learning of English which was very beneficial in helping me improve in English as I has never known that there has a way that I could study for English as I thought that the only way to improve was through practice. The lessons with Mr Tan were never dull and was interesting. In addition, he always ensured that we understood the lesson well so that we could apply the techniques learnt to the subject. The methods were easy to understand and explained very accurate and clear cut. Additionally, I have always given a chance to clarify my doubts both in class and after class, as I was able to clarify my doubts through Whatsapp. Due to the dedication and informative lessons and suggestions on how to help me improve in the English language, I managed to get a two grade improvement in 2 months and scored an A1 in my o level English. I will definitely recommend Good School to others as the lessons are very beneficial and really enabled me to improve my capabilities in the English language.
ENGLISH D7 TO B3 IN 8 MONTHS
Liau Yi Xuan, YuYing Secondary School Singapore
My English is really weak and i thought there is not much i can improve on as i have went to many different tuitions but i see no improvement for my English result. My grade for the subject before I join Good School was D7 for my O levels in 2016, other lessons in school or other centres were just giving me a lot of practice worksheet to do and only go through the answer for my mistakes. But for Mr Tan, he realised that my basic was really weak and without doubts he start to strengthen my basic before going on to the worksheets. Mr Tan's teaching is clear and his methods are easy to understand. He always put in 100% effort to teach me and make sure that i am able to absorb all the point. The class size is conducive for optimal learning to take place. I am able to clarify all my doubts during and after lesson through Whatsapp. Mr Tan really motivates me and inspires me to on my best, at some point in time, I was about to give up as i couldn't see any improvements in my English. I had a 4 grade improvement and scored a B3 for my O level English in 8 months! I would definitely recommend Good School to my juniors!
ENGLISH B3 TO A1
Lye Tse Yong, Nan Chiau High School
Mr Tan is an inspiring and innovative teacher who never fails to impress upon his students the importance of having a passion for the English Language. I managed a grade jump of 2 grades from B3 to A1 while my friends were also able to achieve rather impressive results in their O levels. This is undoubtedly down to Mr Tan’s excellent and methodical teaching methods. Not to mention the care and love she showed upon us. Good School is an effective and quality learning hub. I would say that – with the right doses of hard work – will enable one to fulfill his/her academic goals.
ENGLISH C6 TO B4
Eugene Lim, Punggol Secondary School
Before joining Good School I felt that there was no way to prepare for English when my English exams were around the corner. However, after joining I learnt that there was actually a way to prepare for my English examination other than just reading up on past exam papers like doing practice and learning the formats. Before joining Good School I scored an average of C6 but for my o levels I got a B4. In good school the teaching environment is different from other tuition I attended. The lesson in Good School is really fun and enjoyable. During lesson we would crack jokes but when it is time to be serious everyone would start being serious. The teaching method is very easy to understand and enjoyable. Mr Tan would always encourage me when I felt lazy to do my work and is willing to help us no matter what. I would recommend my juniors to join as the lesson here are very interesting. If I would be able to join again I would.
Wong Tsun Hong, Compassvale Secondary School
Mr Tan made learning English very easy. He created a lot of simple methods to memorise grammar “formulas”. It helped me in improving my English tremendously. Although after ‘O’ levels is over, most of the things I have learnt is gone, but the “formulas” he taught would always appear in my mind. His teaching style is what provides me the ability to understand English.
Teo E Lyn, Junyuan Secondary School
- There is a lot of shortcuts used in his teaching
- The explanation that he gave is clearer than in school
- Improvement in my ability to write essays in proper tenses
- More able to apply the techniques he taught in school
ENGLISH C6 TO B4
Aaron Lam, Sembawang Secondary School
Lessons with Mr Tan were never boring. His kind and lively personality always made the lessons enjoyable for me. When he teaches, he makes sure that every single detail is taught carefully and also makes sure we understand before moving on. As I start lessons later than the rest of the students, I had to catch up with the rest. It was not easy at the start but Mr Tan tries his best to clear my doubts as soon as possible and I managed to grasp his unique techniques to answer questions! Although I did not score a distinction for my ‘Os’, I still improved from a C6 to B4. I also got to learn many tips for studying which can be used in the future! Thank you Mr Tan for guiding me along for the past year J
Megan Zhuo, Holy Innocents' High School
Mr Tan has taught me a different method to approach composition and comprehension. He has covered many grammar mistakes that have helped my English compositions improve. He has also provided me with useful resources like the word lists to help enrich my vocabulary. Mr Tan has also pointed out my mistakes and given me useful advice to score well for English.
Laura Teo, Holy Innocents’ High School
He is very lively during lessons and he tries his very best to make English interesting. He patiently repeats English writing skills and tells us where we should improve in. Mr Tan will mark our work and write a lot of comments to improve, on top of that he personally speaks to us to clarify our doubts and pin point our mistakes that other students may not make.
He is very patient with me and he repeats his explanation multiple times. He constantly encourages us and tells us not to give up. He tells where we are strong and weak in and which chapters we should pay more attention to.
MATH FAIL TO B3
SCIENCE E8 TO B3
Violin Tan Yee Jing, Yu Ying Secondary School
Mr Tan is very understanding and would teach in a pace that is easy for students to learn. I could see improvement when my editing has improved constantly from 4/10 to 8 or 9/10. Thanks Mr Tan!
Mr Zhang is straight to the point and is very good at teaching students in a way we can understand. Before, I would constantly fail my math test. Now, I got a B3 for Maths O level! Thanks Mr Zhang!
Mr Tay is very good at capturing what I’m trying to express and also knows the common questions students have. He is also a humorous person and gets along with his students well. Thanks Mr Tay! (E8 to B3)
Christy, Whitley Secondary School
Mr Tan’s lessons are really interesting and fun. I got to learn the rules in English that are not emphasized by my school. Whenever we don’t understand, he will always patiently explain to us again. He also teaches with drawings (It helped me to learn things in a different way) Oral lessons are even more fun!
I like how he delivers concepts and help us to understand it better. He is very different from other teachers because he makes sure that we understand it before we continue. Whenever we lack practice in a certain chapter, he will help us understand the topic and give us worksheets. His lessons are fun and different (in a good way).
