GOOD SCHOOL WRITTEN TESTIMONIALS
A MATH FAIL TO A2
Ethan Chuah, Compassvale Secondary School (Secondary 5)
When Secondary 3 ended, I was completely lost during my maths lesson as I could not understand what my teacher was teaching. Once I joined Good School, everything changed. Good School methods of teaching is much more understandable and interesting and made me catch up with the topics instantly. I've always failed my A maths constantly before i joined Good School. But now i've been constantly improving and I've managed to score an A2 for both maths! Thank you <3
E MATH C6 TO A1
A MATH A1
Germaine Chua Zhi Lin, Paya Lebar Methodist Girls Secondary School
From day 1, Maths just felt like greek to me. I couldn’t catch a single thing the teacher was teaching and the fact that I was too shy to ask questions definitely did not help improve my situation. All the doubts and misconceptions I had snowballed and I inevitably developed a profound hatred of mathematics. Which also caused me to completely give up on the subject and not study for any of my mathematics tests.
Before joining I generally got Cs, worst case would be a fail and if I was lucky maybe I’d get a B4 :)
There was sufficient practice provided for each chapter taught, in terms of both quantity and range of difficulty. For school exams and Os the tutor would highlight certain question types that were commonly tested. He would also emphasise on keywords to look out for so that students do not fall for the traps hidden in the question and lose marks carelessly
There was a very systematic way of teaching that allowed me to easily understand the rationale behind each step taken to solve every question. Which therefore allowed me to apply my knowledge accurately. My tutor also shared a lot of stories from his personal life n experiences which helped make lessons a lot less dry
Class size was not big which makes it much easier for me to voice my doubts
The tutor was always contactable via WhatsApp. That was why whenever I had any queries, regardless of the time, location and whether it be related to tuition or school, they were always answered and in a manner in which I could understand.
I joined at the start of sec 2 and got my first A1 at MYEs. Since then both my E and A math scores became pretty consistent throughout the rest of my secondary school life, never going below an A2 and I scored A1 in O levels for both subjects.
I would recommend it to others because it definitely helped clear most if not all of my doubts that I had accumulated in sec 1 which helped me to improve drastically within half a year. It made learning mathematics way more enjoyable for me as compared to how dreadful it was in sec 1. Good School also helped built my confidence in solving questions making exams a lot less stressful than it used to
A MATH F9 TO A2
Adelle Choo, Compassvale Secondary School
In school, the teacher’s pace was way too fast and I could not understand most of the lesson. I became very discouraged and copied almost all my math homework. When I first joined, I had F9 for A maths. Despite being slow in understanding, my mentor in Good School was very patient in explaining and making sure I understood the topics. The study area was very helpful to me as it provided a conducive environment since it was hard for me to concentrate at home. My mentor was very encouraging and genuine in helping me improve my understanding whether it was during lessons or through Whatsapp. I had a 7 grade improvement and scored an A2 for O levels.
A MATH A2
Chee Yeng Yee Rachael, Chung Cheng High (Main)
For Sec 2 Maths, I wasn't able to keep up with what my school teacher was teaching and though my grasp of Sec 1 topics was still okay, I was not able to manage as well for Sec 2 topics. I found myself gradually starting to progress worse in maths by the end of Mid-year exams. My tutor helped clarified my doubts and was also very clear in his explanation. If we found that his explanation was unclear, he would try his best to find an alternative explanation. When we have questions that we need help on that are not part of the given homework, he does not hesitate to help us through Whatsapp which is one thing that I feel makes learning very accessible. He also gave sufficient practices of various levels of difficulty which helped me broaden my understanding of every topic. When revising previous topics, my tutor gives very concise yet clear-cut steps on how to tackle different possible question types which has really helped me identify the various steps i'm required to do in order to solve the question.Furthermore, I like that my tutor is motivating and will never fail to share some stories to help us take our minds of what we're doing for awhile especially if we're doing a very heavy topic which can make the lessons feel quite long. My grade in Sec 2 improved from a near C5 to an A1 and as I have joined his Amath classes since the beginning of Sec 3, my grades for Amath have been consistently A1s or A2s. In the end, I scored an A2 for O Levels Amath. I would recommend joining as my tutor's effort put into every class has been very consistent throughout the 2.5years that I was under him. He is an extremely dedicated teacher who really wants to help his students so I'm sure that many would see improvement in their grades and knowledge.
A MATH F9 TO A2
E MATH C5 TO A2
Crystal Tan, Xinmin Secondary School
In the beginning of Sec 3, I was not able to grasp the A Math concepts very well as my school teachers was moving from topic to topic very quickly, and I had many concepts that I could not clarify as my school teacher moved really fast and the concepts were also taught in a very abstract manner that I had formed many misconceptions and got very confused. When I got into GSLH, my mentor had broken down abstract concepts my school teacher was trying to teach me. He also gave the students a few practice questions and showed us how to apply the concepts he taught us to as well as on the questions I did as homework. On numerous occasions , he also addressed my queries on my school math homework on Whatsapp and after class. The study environment is extremely conducive and it is not only great for lessons, but self study as well. I got F9 for most of my Sec 3 life and got an A2 for O levels. I would definitely recommend GSLH because my mentor is a very dedicated teacher and will put in his 110% and give you good results as long as you are willing to put in the effort. The environment is conducive and everyone is very encouraging.
In Sec 3, my math teacher placed a lot of emphasis on teaching A math and neglected teaching E Math so my E Math grades started to drop. My mentor in good school taught me the topics ahead of time so I was able to understand the topics better in school, and ample amount of questions in homework. The questions done in tuition and at home was more than enough practice as good school even gave topical revision worksheets after finishing every topic in Sec 4. During lessons, My mentor ensured that everyone understood what he was teaching and would slow down in parts we thought was more complex or at parts where people didn't understand, which was extremely helpful. He also made classes more fun by telling us stories and jokes as my class is in the morning and everyone was sleepy. This engaged us a lot better and allowed us to absorb information better. The study environment is very conducive and encouraging as he would always answer my questions in class and over Whatsapp. I used to get C5 for my E Math, but thanks to my mentor's help, I was finally able to get an A2. Good School would definitely give you the results that you want as long as you are willing to work hard!
A MATH C6 TO A1
Yeo Choon Hon, Xinmin Secondary School
One issue that I faced was that in class, whenever my teacher taught a new topic, I would always be falling behind while my friends are always understanding very quickly. I would always ask my friends for help, because they understood it way better, and I couldn’t really understand why I was falling behind. So I decided to join a tuition centre to help me. For Math, there were also certain techniques applied during exams, it allowed me to get higher grades, and the things taught here were actually rather simple, and it can be easily applied as long as you play your part in doing your homework. I think doing so can really help you to improve your grades a lot. Before I joined this center, my Math grade was a C6. Ever since I joined this centre, I’ve been getting A1 all the way.
E MATH D7 TO A2
A MATH D7 TO B4
Tam Yan Yau Ruth, Holy Innocent High School
My tutor is a pretty interesting teacher to learn under. He’s approachable and pretty humorous, especially with his anecdotes about his life and especially that time he had to end the session early because his wife went into labor.
I really like how he manages to explain concepts that I couldn’t understand in class in relatively simple terms - for example, for the longest time I have thought mensuration to be the most painful topic in the world, but under his teaching he basically busted that myth - apparently it’s just formulas and knowing the strategy, nothing more. I’m glad to have been taught be him.
I remember that for some topics, like graphs, I couldn’t fully understand what I was learning and at that moment, just absorbed the information before I realized I didn’t understand much later. I scored a D7 for my SA2 in secondary
A lot more time is dedicated to exploring a single topic and understanding it, instead of rushing through like in school. That probably gave me enough time to understand and make use of my info.
My tutor manages to make it clear that every question can be solved by following systematic steps - identifying the topic through the keywords, knowing the strategy and executing the plan. For example, a mensuration question can be broken down into knowing what shape is being shown, and applying the correct formula according to whether perimeter, area or volume needs to be found.
I quite enjoy the fact that due to the Covid 19 situation, I do not need to travel to the center - instead, I can have tuition in the comfort of my own home. It’s good that I’m able to clarify my homework questions during the session. Scored A2 for O level E Math, so a 5-grade improvement from secondary. I’d say it’s worth it if one is willing to put in the effort - the lessons are easily absorbable if they’re paying attention and taking down notes for themselves.
E MATH B4 TO B3
A MATH E8 TO A2
Genevieve Lim, CHIJ Secondary Toa Payoh
Having not met the requirements in secondary 2 to take amath in secondary 3, I was offered a special case scenario where I could take amath privately. This put me at a huge disadvantage since I had to find a tutor who is able to teach me the all the content a typical student learnt in class each week and squeeze all that in a 2 hours lesson every week. This caused me to struggle in excelling in amath. This caused me to score E8 in my secondary 3 Sa2. However after i joined good school at the start of secondary 4 , this changed for me and I started to see my grades slowly improving. This was because my tutor was very concise in covering each topic and through his START tactic I managed to identify and solve questions easily. My tutor also made learning enjoyable allowing me to be fully engaged throughout each lesson. The lessons at good school also allowed me to reach my full potential since each class is small enabling me to easily clarify my doubts. The support I have received throughout my olevel period was extremely strong since I had someone to clarify my doubts at any time even if I asked at odd hours. Ultimately, in my olevel i had an improvement of 6 grades, attaining an A2 for for my o levels amath. I would recommend this tution centre as their tutors are well-trained and committed to help and push their students to succeed in their studies.
A MATH F9 TO B3
Shawn Gui Jin Heng, Maris Stella High School
Before attending lessons in Good School, the amount of understanding I had in Math was highly questionable. I could never understand the required concepts fully or grasp the points of certain topics as well as the applications for them. Math lessons in school were tedious, to say the least, with practice after practice. Afterwards, the teacher would just go through them, end of story. Even if there were doubts, they could never be fully clarified. However, the tutor in good school changed all of that. His lessons were a lot more interactive and engaging. If you had any questions, they will not be left unanswered. The notes were not exhaustive either. Revision was made a lot easier with them. Whenever the overall mood of the students were low, the tutor would share one of his life experiences to lighten up the atmosphere, ensuring that students can feel recharged to continue with the lesson. The centre's environment was good too. The classrooms allow students to better focus on their work and not get distracted. The support provided is a lot more accessible compared to in school. Any questions will be answered at any point in time, even outside tuition timings. Because of all these, my A math results improved from an F9 to a B3 in around 2 years. I would definitely recommend Good School because the lessons conducted are more engaging unlike conventional school lessons. The tutor makes sure that students understand as much possible about the topics covered, especially outside lessons. He is passionate about teaching, and if there is cooperation between two parties, the improvement made will be worth the effort
A MATH F9 TO A2
CHEMISTRY F9 TO A2
Nick Seah, Maris Stella High School
I hated A math to the core especially with the constant F9s throughout the year. Didn’t understand a simple topic. My tutor in GS was patient and very dedicated to help us understand how to do a certain topic. During O level period, he helped me whenever I needed help through Whatsapp. I eventually scored an A2 for my O Levels.
Before joining, I felt that chemistry was the worst subject and I scored F9 throughtout. Tutors were dedicated to help students and to answer students queries. I scored A2 for O levels. Tutors helped us summarise every topic allowing me to have an earlier revision.
A MATH A1
Gerard Chong Yew Tze, Catholic High School
My tutor was always a dedicated teacher who would ensure that we understood everything that was taught. When we drifted off in class sometimes, he reminded us to keep paying attention. I feel that he has helped me to ensure that i constantly maintain my A1 grade in Add math by his constant help and dedication.
I joined during circuit breaker, and there was a lack of attention given by my math teacher in school, thus I was losing track of my learning. There are quality materials and lesson is carried out in an orderly fashion
My teacher always gave us his attention and made sure we understood every concept he taught. He also put in much effort to answer any queries we made to him on whatsapp swiftly. The support was sufficient and i felt that i could cope better with add maths overall
I maintained an A1 grade constantly.
I would recommend it because it helped me and I'm sure it'll help them.
E MATH F9 TO C5
Gwyneth Quek Ee-En, St. Magaret's Secondary School
Before I joined my teacher in school was teaching really quickly and I was unable to fully understand my teacher. He also skipped steps and made it difficult to connect the dots to the solution for the questions. Many lessons in school were simply doing practices and even when the teacher went through the practice worksheets, they went through quite quickly. At Good School however, the tutor allowed us to voice out the questions we needed him to explain and he would explain in detail until we understand. Good School's teaching was very clear and the methods were easy to understand and apply. He taught us more than one method to solve a question. He also shared with us tips for exams and also life. I like that there is a study area in the centre and it's a very conducive environment to study. Class sizes are small and also lesser distractions.
A MATH E8 TO A1
Adam Loh Shun Hao, Compassvale Secondary School
I felt that I don't have the ability to do well in A Math as our school provided very little time to understand the different topics. I scored and E8 for my recent SA1. In school, teachers have lesser time to concentrate on different individuals and hence is unable to cater specifically to our level of understanding unlike lessons here where we are helped individually as the classes are small. The tutor's lessons are engaging and are helpful as we can clarify our doubts on the spot. The small class size is one of the things i like about here. I am constantly supported by my tutor even on Whatsapp. After attending this tuition, i obtained an A1 for A Maths. I was able to understand the topics more clearly with the help of my tutor. I would recommend to my juniors as the environment here is good and conducive.
A MATH F9 TO A2 IN 6 MONTHS
CHEMISTRY B4 TO A2 IN 5 MONTHS
Sofian Benedict RuiHan, Ngee Ann Secondary
For A Maths, I really never liked it as I never did well, I would have a difficult time understanding what the teacher at my school was saying as it is harder to grasp. I got a D7 for CA2 and F9 for prelim. The tutor taught each concept more in-depth, my previous tuition centre had like one to one teaching. Over here they had more one to one teaching. My tutor would always clarify your doubts and prompt you to solve your problems yourself without giving you the answer directly. The centre is air-conditioned and is comfortable for studying. If i needed help with outside work outside class, I would ask him during lessons sometimes through Whatsapp. I got A2 for Amaths in O levels and my improvements only showed during O levels. I had a 5 grade improvement after 6 months. I would recommend because of the environment and teachers, conducive environment to study.
Chemistry confused me at first with the many concepts and topics and I scored B4 for CA2. The tutor at Good School would explain further on the concepts and give me the points for better understanding. In school the teacher rushed through the lessons and had little time for one to one consultations. The Centre is air-conditioned and comfortable and have small classes. I would ask the teacher usually after class and mostly on Whatsapp when I'm doing my own work. I scored an A2 for chemistry during O levels, a 2 grade improvement in 5 months. I would recommend Good School as the teachers and the school environment provides a suitable place for study.
A MATH E8 TO A2
Samuel Teoh, Anglican High School
Before joining GSLH, I scored a consistently low grade below D7. The tutor in good school is patient and helped me to understand the topics better, even starting from scratch although only 3 months were left. The small class size also allowed me to freely ask questions and concentrate better.
A MATH E8 TO A2
Quah Yan Hui, Compassvale Secondary School
When I first took A maths, I found it ridiculously hard. It was hard to understand the different maths terms being thrown around the classroom. But I managed to get through different math terms being thrown around the classroom and managed to get through using examples. As a result, my A maths results have been really inconsistent; ranging from C6s to F9s. Hence, my parents signed me up for Good School. When I first joined I was too shy to ask for clarification. As the tuition sessions progressed, my teacher could see that I was struggling to understand and was too shy to ask. Hence, he assured me every tuition session and I was soon asking him questions about my school exam papers after class. With questions answered and a much better understanding of the subject, thanks to clear teaching and learning the different methods to solve problems, my grades jumped from E8 to A2 from prelims to O level. I would strongly recommend Good School as the teaching is very clear and they teach us many methods to solve problems. The temperature is cool and provides a conducive learning environment. The classrooms look professional as well.
A MATH D7 TO A2
Peh Qi Heng, Holy Innocents’ High School
Before joining Good School, I was constantly failing A maths and honestly did not put much thought into this subject as well as my other subjects. Throughout the two years of taking A math in secondary school, I did not fair well. I was either barely passing or attaining a solid D7. The lessons differed greatly, in class, the teacher had to cater to the different learning speeds of various students and thus was not able to concentrate on everyone. As a result, I always found myself lost in class and eventually lost interest. However, in Good School, I was able to freely express my misconceptions and get an immediate solution to my issue. Succeeding in solving Amath problems, it sparked an interest in me for the subject. Along with the continuous support from Good School, I was inspired to do well and determined to ace Amaths as well as my other subjects. During Prelims in September, I scored a D7 but in O levels, I was able to achieve an A2! A 5 grade improvement. Overall, I would recommend Good School. In small groups, the tutor will be able to cater to your needs. Good School will continue to provide endless support no matter your starting grade.
A MATH F9 TO B3
Oh Zilin, Edgefield Secondary School
Before I joined, I had difficulty coping with my A maths as the pace in school was too fast and after failing my mid-year exams in sec 3, I became very unmotivated and started losing interest in A math. I scored F9 in my first common test in sec 4. Here, the pace is definitely slower and also I was able to better clarify my doubts. Mr Zhang was very patient and he always made sure all of us understood before moving on. The study area is very conducive for me to continue studying even after classes. I was also able to clarify my doubts even after lessons through Whatsapp. I had a 6 grade improvement and scored B3 for my O levels A maths.
A MATH F9 TO A2
Shreyas, School of Science and Technology
My mentor is a very passionate teacher who would not stop trying to explain key concepts until we are completely clear. He doesn’t just tell us how to solve questions, but rather explains the reason behind using the specific methods. This allows us to gain a deeper understanding in the concepts and their various applications.
A MATH C6 TO A1
James Tan, Maris Stella High School
I always felt that the pace in school is too fast for me. I had a hard time understanding the concepts of A Maths. I was getting C6 in my A Maths. The lessons are easy to understand and the tutor took the time to explain any concepts that I was unsure of. He was willing to take time to explain concepts such as integration and differentiation. The small class size really helped too. In the end, I improved from C6 to an A1 for my O level A Maths. I would definitely recommend Good School to my friends as it provides an ideal learning environment for any student.
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. My mentor 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, My mentor 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 my mentor 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!
E MATH C6 TO A2
A MATH F9 TO B4
Jonathan Vincent Lum, ACS (Barker Road)
Before joining Good School, my E.Math had always gotten problem C5 or C6 and my A.Math was consistently getting F9 all the way up to, these grades caused me to lose interest in both math and thought about dropping A.Math. When I joined Good School, my tutor gave me a new perspective to learning math by breaking down each chapter into sub topics allowing slow learners like me to catch up. In the end thanks to Good School's efforts i managed to obtain an A2 for E.Math and a B4 for A.Math which was the first time i passed in O levels.
A MATH F9 TO B3
Gerald Ooi, Maris Stella High School
Before Good School, I felt very unmotivated towards A math as I was unable to understand the concepts put forward by my school teacher. Hence I had a consistent F9 and E8 during my upper sec journey. During my time at Good School I found the teaching methods used allowed me to clearly understand the concepts of the chapters, motivating me to study hard and practise the subject. Furthermore, since the class size is small, it was very conducive for me to learn. After the hard work of my tutor and me, i was able to improve from a consistent F9 to B3 in my O levels
A MATH B4 TO A2
Sean Sum Xi Jie, Chung Cheng Main School
Topics covered in school were mainly 'touch and go' with no detailed explanation of the various question types. Good School covers the specific question types properly and give examples of careless mistakes commonly made so that we can be wary of it. The homework given is sufficient and challenging, allowing students to get sufficient exposure to question types. Nearing prelims, the topical revision was useful as students can specially focus on their weaker topics and question types. Tuition content covered was ahead of school allowed me to get a good grasp of what the school teacher was saying and prevents me from getting lost during lessons. My score improved from B4 in prelims to A2 in O levels.
A MATH E8 TO B3 IN 1 MONTH
Quah Qing Long, Chung Cheng Main School
Not really interested in A Maths - I scored E8. Good School tutors can focus more on the question you don't know and can help you 1 on 1. You can also learn about things that other people ask. The methods help you understand better. There is aircon, food and drinks, and you can use the study area if you come early. The tutor provides a good support system such that I can ask questions that i don't know immediately. I got a D7 during prelims but attained a B3 during O levels. I made an improvement after one month only. I would definitely recommend Good School to others.
E MATH C5 TO B3 IN 1 MONTH
Gershayn Phua, Yishun Town Secondary School
It was a fun and enriching learning under My tutor. Aside from being a really experienced math teacher, he is also really passionate and genuine towards his students. To make lessons more fun, he would often crack some lame jokes. He would also share with us the common mistakes and misunderstandings students make for certain questions which helps us a lot. For math, I usually felt that the pace in school was a little too fast for me and I never really had time to clarify my doubts with my teacher, so my mentor had actually made learning maths much more easier and clearer for me, because he would go really in-depth in explanations. Also, I really liked his style of teaching because it really just focuses on the topics and question types that I have doubts in. In the span of just 1 month learning under my tu, my grade in math has improved by 2 grades. (C5 to B3)
E MATH F9 TO B3
Wee Mei Xuan, North Vista Secondary School
My mentor is a very consciences teacher. He always ensures that I understand what i am learning. He is very patient and will explain and clear my doubts very patiently even after asking him the same question umpteen times. He will answer my questions on Whatsapp no matter how late/early I ask him. I often bombard him with tons of questions but he never fails to answer all of them with clear explanation. My past tutors just couldn't help me to understand E-math. Being able to meet my mentor was a blessing in disguise. I improved from a constant F9 to a B3 in my O levels.
E MATH F9 TO C5 IN 3 MONTHS
Sharlotte Lim, Paya Lebar Methodist Girls School Secondary
My tutor helped me to understand the different topics such as indices and trigonometry better as I was particularly weak in those areas. The way he approached the questions were easy to understand. He also helped to clear my doubts and also helped me to enjoy doing math more. After constantly failing and getting F9s throughout the year, I managed to get a C5 in my O levels within a span of 3 months. I also like the fact that I would ask questions that I am not sure of from the papers that I have done and my tutor would be glad to answer my doubts.
A MATH B4 TO A1
CHEMISTRY B4 TO A2
Terry Tan, Bowen Secondary School
Before attending A math tuition with my mentor, I was achieving inconsistent results for A math due to a lack of understanding for the subject. Despite studying extremely hard, I was not scoring the As I hoped for. However, my tutor unique teaching style allowed me to understand the fundamentals of the subject. Not only did he enlighten me academically but he also taught me important life lessons and values by telling short stories. This let me realize that although academics are important, having good values is also crucial to being successful in life.
Despite joining the class in the middle of Secondary 4, I managed to catch up a lot within a short amount of time and this allowed me to jump from B4 to A2 in O levels. My mentorwas very determined to pull my grades up and get to know me better in the process. From the first lesson, he interacted with us in a friendly and welcoming way which made me comfortable in approaching him when I need help. His teaching style is very confident and this made me more determined to study harder to achieve a distinction.
E MATH C6 TO A1
A MATH FAIL TO B3
Ethan Chuah, Compassvale Secondary School (Secondary 4)
Honestly, I didn’t really care about my studies then. I remember I failed my a maths badly and scored a just passed for e maths at most. When I joined this tuition, I also didn’t care about my work. Every lesson, I came with my homework incomplete. Even worst, I would purposely skip lesson as I was lazy and gave the excuse I was sick. After my EOY results, I did terribly. I was too afraid that I would retain. From that day onwards, I devided to work hard. It was not an easy process but I have no choice in order for me to succeed. In the beginning of Secondary 4, I struggled a lot. Sometimes I even gave up. But I know by doing that I won’t be able to upgrade myself. I then decided to work hard. My hardwork paid off. I scored an A1 for my emaths and B3 for my Amaths. All I can say is that hardwork will pay off!
A MATH F9 TO A2 IN 3 MONTHS
Javier Chan, Xinmin Secondary School
My mentor is extremely patient. For example, there were several occasions where I was unable to comprehend even the simplest concepts, he would then take some time to explain in detail to ensure that all students were able to catch up with the lessons.
Even though he is busy with his personal life, especially since he has a young son to take care of, he would still not mind us asking him questions through Whatsapp where he will respond as soon as he could. His dedication towards teaching is largely apparent and greatly appreciated by students as well.
During lessons, he also does his best to ensure that there are no dull moments. For example, after completing a series of tough questions, he will take a short break and share past experiences and other personal stories. He also takes the effort to find out more about his students and their interests.
Despite joining the class merely 3 months before O levels, my tutor's patience and in-depth knowledge about the subjects he teaches allowed me to pull up my Amath grade from F9 to A2.
MATH F9 TO B3
Martin Lau, Victoria School
My tutor is a very sharp teacher. Although he’s just my math teacher, he knew there were some personal problems in my life and texted me personally out of concern. He also takes the effort to record his lessons on computer so that we could relook back and revise what he taught in class. Thanks Boss.
Electromagnetic Induction is my worst topic. To make it fun, my tutor showed us Youtube videos that are related to the topic we’re currently learning. He also encouraged us not to give up during the final weeks of revision before O levels. When he’s free, he talks to me personally about my ambitions so I do not lose sight of my goals. Thank you.
A MATH C5 TO A2
Manesh Lingham, North Vista Secondary School
When I first saw the advertisement on Facebook, I was quite intrigued when I saw people having massive improvements from Fs to As. Then at a C, I decided to give the lessons a shot and I have to say that if I had not taken the lessons, I probably would have only peaked at a B. With my tutor happy approach, jokes and enthusiasm he transformed this daunting subject to a more friendly one. With that approach, I became more open to learning and the subject. Furthermore, he was always available on Whatsapp so that's cool. I now find A Maths fun to do and more of a game than Maths. I managed to improve and get an A2 for O level.
Chemistry to me was always a subject that I felt that if I had a teacher who I could just click with, understanding it would be quite easy. Thankfully, my tutor was that type of teacher. He always went over topics quite aggressively, getting to the 'meaty' part of the topic within an hour, yet he always taught it in the simplest way possible. He always covered common misconceptions early in the lesson and he allowed for questions beyond the syllabus (which i really like). Furthermore, he gave additional work and exam papers if any of us wanted and to me, that is like fantastic. I have managed to look at Chem in a more simplistic manner and managed to get an A for O level.
A MATH C5 TO A2
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. My tutor 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.
A MATH D7 TO B3
Christy, Whitley Secondary School
My mentor'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).
Jacie Koh, Chung Cheng Main School
Before joining math tuition for A Maths, I was scoring very badly for A Maths due to my lack of understanding of the subject. Due to the detailed explanation on question types and the extra help I got for the topics I did not understand well, I began to be able to do the questions provided in tuition and in school. My results have shown immense improvement in the 1 year that I am in Good School.
Before joining Chemistry tuition, my Chemistry was bad due to my lack of understanding and that I was unable to go to school often for the lessons. During the lessons, my tuition teacher was able to go through the topics and supply me with exercise questions and help me better understand the question types that came out during the O levels. My results have undoubtedly improved over the past year.
MATH C6 TO B3
Yule Han, Punggol Secondary School
Before i joined, I've always been very bad at math. I never knew how to properly understand the topics. The teachers in school also kept changing every term, which caused many people like me to fail. On my firm prelim exam, i scored a grade 6 and that was when i realised that i needed help with math. I came upon Good School online and decided to give it a try. My mentor is a very patient teacher and would never hesitate to help us solve our doubts. In addition, he also made lessons interesting by telling us stories to brighten up our moods from exam stress. I managed to improve on my prelim 2 by scoring a grade 4 and a grade 3 for my N levels. Overall, i did not regret joining Good School.
E MATH C6 TO B4
Ong Shao En Eunice, Edgefield Secondary School
For Math, I have never always been able to do well as i cannot understand the concept of it and i don’t know how to make use of the formulas that were give for each topic, i always got really low score for math and never knew how could i improve on it. I am able to identify the questions and solve the problems using the strategies taught. The strategies and tips were easy to understand and apply
Good School lessons are taught from ground up without requiring prior knowledge. All the basics and fundamentals are taught so that I can have an edge in the exams
When lessons are too stressful he will try to loosen the mood up as it is always very tense when it comes to a important and tedious topic, so i think it helps a lot so we don’t feel very energy drained.
Having a study area is conducive and class size is small so i can focus better compared to school
Im able to clarify all my doubts during lessons and also after lessons the tutor is always there to support my questions on whatsapp when I needed help. I had a 2-grade improvement and scored a B4 for my N level math
I would recommend because i think their methods and strategies taught are very effective once you get to learn about, there were lots of methods learnt only in GoodSchool and the tutors never fail to ask upon your understanding on the specific area taught during lessons.
A MATH A2
Ian Lim, Pei Hwa Secondary Schooll
My tutor has helped me tremendously with A math, his constant emphasis on consistency in mathematics has help really benefitted me. In his class he encourages us to asks questions and to always clarify doubts. The classes being small also allows for an easier communication between student and teacher. My tutor also goes out of his way and provides assistance whenever needed, he opens his WhatsApp for us to clarify doubts and this has help me a lot. Evidently I have been scoring A1 and A2’s throughout my secondary 3 and 4 days.
E MATH F9 TO B3
Giselle Lee, St Margaret’s Secondary School
In secondary school, I have never once passed math, and often struggled keeping up with the curriculum as I felt that it was going too fast for my pace. I gradually started to lag behind the rest of my classmates up until Sec 4, when I joined the Good School after a classmate had recommended it to me.
Before joining the good school, I was scoring consistent F9s for my CA and SA math exams.
I feel that as compared to other schools, Good School has a structured and efficient way of teaching its students formulas such that it is easy and simple to understand.
The tutors make it a point to make sure that the students understand the concept of the formula/subject and go above and beyond to explain it in simpler terms and to come up with ways to help the students remember formulas. For example, my tutor provided us fun mnemonics to help us memorize formulas, which are much more efficient and memorable than ones provided in the textbook.
The class sizes are kept small, which means every student’s progress is monitored and ensured. The tutor also makes it a point to make every student feel included in the class, and often tries to boost the mood in class.
I scored a B3 for my O Level Emaths, jumping 6 grades from an F9, in about 7 months as I joined around March.
I would highly recommend Good School to all students who are struggling in their subjects, as the tutors are very focused on helping students to the best of their abilities.
A MATH C6 TO B3
Sabrina Juhari , Holy Innocent High School
Before joining Good School,I could not keep up with my classmates back then in math classes. I was consistently failing my math papers and i felt quite frustrated with myself. I started disliking the subject because i keep on getting the same unsatisfactory results.My grade before joining was a c6. The lessons are different because it makes me more motivated to study as my tutor makes it easier for us to strategise our methods and eliminate mistakes so that we are able to spend our time more efficiently during exams and it has definitely made me more confident in myself during exams
What i like about my lessons is that he is not always so intense during classes and also the light hearted conversations made during lessons makes me feel less pressured during class. He’s also always motivating us and it’s nice how he’s confident in us scoring well for our exams. He does not set unrealistic expectations for us which is good It’s a small class so it’s easier to ask more questions.
The tutor is constantly assuring us that it’s ok to ask questions and it makes me feel more comfortable to ask questions rather than being embarrassed to ask questions during class.
I jumped 2 grades for my Amath from consistently scoring a c5 in school exams to a b3 in o levels
i would recommend because i feel safe to be there and the lessons there definitely benefit me a lot as it makes me feel more motivated to score well in exams.
A MATH B4 TO A2
Sebastian Yoong , St Joseph's Instituition
Prior to joining the school, my math grades were very inconsistent and I couldn’t really have a grasp on the topics at hand.
After going here, however, I managed to better understand the maths questions and the steps as to how to answer them with the help of my tutor. Because of this, I easily understood the questions in the O level papers and could do well in them.
A MATH E8 TO A2
Seah Jun Hui, Wayne , Chung Cheng High School (Main)
I couldn't keep up with the speed of my math classes in secondary two and all my problems snowballed.
I joined GoodSchool at the end of Secondary 2 so I did not have an amath grade before that.
For math, the notes were very neatly compiled and the tutor shared many of the useful strategies and formulas with us. Due to his past experiences, he was able to let us know the important/key features of each question type. The tutor is very engaging and very professional in his work. He was able to make lessons fun by sharing his experiences from his life and also at the same time teaching us many ways to apply the different question types into the real world context. Class size is small and it is quite cozy I was able to clarify with my tutor my doubts during/before and even after tuition itself.
My math grades became more and more consistent over time and I could constantly achieve an A grade. I would recommend this because this tuition centre has very helpful and understanding teachers that will guide you along the way to reach the desired grade you want to get.

SCIENCE E8 TO B3
Violin Tan Yee Jing, Yu Ying Secondary School
My mentor 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!
My mentor 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 !
My mentor 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 ! (E8 to B3)
