Just like to share that my sons started having Science lessons at Intuitive Learning Hub located at Beauty World center.

They provide notes and school papers for practice. My sons enjoy having classes there as the notes are good and the class size is small.

My son is currently attending Lexis Education Asia at bukit timah area (queen's road), 5 minutes walk from Farrer road mrt - circle line.

so far he is enjoying his lessons there and has improved to a B from failing...

The programme at Lexis Education Asia took time to find out what the root of the problem is with my son before issuing him any work to do.

I feel this is the right way as last time when i was sending my son to neighbourhood tuition centres around my area...they only give him worksheet after worksheet... doesn't tackle his root of the problem.

their website is www.lexiseduasia.com or you can call them...i normally speak to linah...very friendly staff.

Hi Tricia, this is a bit late, but if you're still looking for a physics tutor, we've got a few of them that match your requirements.

This is my first post in almost 2 months. It's been a mad rush for me with a kid in P6 and one in Secondary school. The entire school selection process has been a headache and I've finally managed to get my son in a ''decent'' school.

Now that I've got everything settled. I'll like to thank the teachers at Indigo for their help. Besides academic support, one of their teachers even helped me with the school selection process and appeal. I feel that they go out of their way to help their students. My boy P6 to S1 boy was with him for the entire 2015. Initially, he was unmotivated but still scoring decent marks (about 80 marks) at Ai Tong Primary. Being Kiasu, and knowing that he can definitely get an A* for PSLE, I enrolled him at Indigo. The reason why my boy likes it so much there is because the lessons are very systematic. The teacher breaks the problem down into simple bit size information, which is easy for my boy to digest and understand. Thus, for any problem, my boy has the ability to distill the question. This is a great boost to his confidence when solving sums. The Math teacher also very expressive in nature, and sometimes a little bit dramatic. However, my boy seems to enjoy every lesson because its very different from primary school teachers. He absorbs knowledge better when he is having fun learning rather than being scolded. Thus, although I'm a graduate, I rather let someone teach my son and i'm rather impatient.

This same teacher at Indigo currently teachers my girl who is from sec 3 moving on to sec 4 at Crescent Girls. My daughter's first A Math test this year was 35% and she said that it was ''normal'' and everyone did badly so its okay. I really refuse to allow this kind of answer to be given from my daughter. Hence, I enrolled her at Indigo too. Initially, she was reluctant because she has a ''ton of social life'' according to her. But with some bribery, she allowed herself to learn. This math teacher basically taught her a maths from scratch during the June term break as part of his revision package. He provides notes, summary of topics, variations of questions showing how one topic can be asked in several ways. In summary, his teaching is very systematic and easy to understand. My daughter got a B3 for her EOY but considering the big jump in marks and the fact that my daughter is motivated to go for lessons, I think her improvement is tremendous. He assured me that 2 A1s for A and E maths is very much possible!

It's not everyday you get to find an effective teacher who is able to connect with students, thus motivating them, yet also being very clear in his teaching and have good materials. This one is really worth the recommendation.

Hi,

I am looking for a JC Chemistry tutor for my daughter. She is in JC1. Any good recommendations? Will prefer a centre in the bukit timah/central region. Female MOE JC lecturer familiar with the new A level syllabus preferred.

Hi macncheese, I have replied in the adjacent thread. Will repost here for your convenience.

Her colleague, Mr Zhou, is a very popular math tutor and has been guiding my boy in mathematics for the past few years. Perhaps you could visit their website at http://www.nicklebeetutors.com

Noted with thanks. I have heard of Mr Zhou math tuition at nicklebee tuition centre but I didn't know they provide chemistry tuition too. How did your neighbour's son do for his GCSE O level chemistry?
