My child is with Teacher Priscilla.
I feel that sometimes her explanation is not very clear.....
When my child do her MPM work at home, I still need to explain to her how to do it.

I fully agree that Teacher Alicia is more business person.
Hello Smurfs .... how old is your child?

I wonder if there are any parents who have P4 or P5 child at MPM @ Chong Pang? Teacher Priscilla teach until which primary level?
My little one is 4 years old have been with them for a term or two for both jelic and MPM. He has been with teacher priscilla and teacher Alicia. Didn't benefit at all from either of them. Teacher Alicia is certainly very business minded and teacher priscilla, though she's a nice lady she can't quite communicate her ideas to younger kids. She seems to brag a lot of her own teaching methods and how good she is but honestly I feel that none if it is true. Initially it was very convincing but after a while I realise that it's just empty talk and more of bragging of how good she is compared to other centers bringing down other centers. Thus I left after about 2 terms.

I sent my kids to Mpm yishun too. They are under Ms Priscilla Tan for about 3 years now. What I like about Mpm is that they combine some IQ games with math, so it's not boring at all. I also find that Priscilla is a consistent tutor with passion for excellence in coaching whilst constantly benchmarking other curriculum in the market. I feel that she genuinely try her best to bring the kids to excel. She always said if the kids can run, let them run. If they can fly, let them fly. Nevertheless she also makes sure that the class is fun and does not over stretched them.

My children have been with Yishun MPM and Jelic for 4 years. They were/are under the guidance of Teacher Priscilla Tan. There are definitely ups and downs in their learning especially when the topics get more challenging to grasp. However, Teacher Priscilla is experienced enough to know when and how much to push the child and when to unwind and go easy with the child before he/she snaps. My children have good rapport with Teacher Priscilla. As a result, they didn’t lose interest in Math when the going gets tough. Today, my elder child has a strong foundation in Math while my younger one has scored perfect score in her SA1 Math.

With so many mixed (not too sure if they are all genuine judging the number of new users) reviews at Yishun (Chong pang branch), why dont you all try it out at Yishun (khatib), Block 848? There is a new MPM branch that has just opened there.

Hi, just wondering, if we were to transfer, do we need to pay the deposit and registration fee again?

I'm with Teacher Priscilla too at Chong Pang. I have mixed reviews too. While the programme is good, I feel uncomfortable with the teachers. I feel they are a little bragging. When I enquired previously, they tell me they have very good reviews and sent me screen grabs from online forums. Every week I hear the same thing like how my child improved a lot. I guess the programme itself is a good, just that I feel overall it's very expensive. Especially I'm paying $42 for weekend class. And I have to pay for public holidays as well if the lesson falls on a PH and there's no replacement class. They tell me this is mandated by the Singapore Government and is the same throughout Singapore. However, the other enrichment class my child goes to tells me they will replace classes that fall on PH. When I told them about this, they said it's a company policy. Honestly, I don't know where to look for to substantiate this claim. They can even tell me my child's lesson don't have that many PH. But that's not the point lo.

My child joined MPM - Yishun ChongPang for 9 months! I agree that Teacher Priscilla's teaching is unclear and Teacher Alicia is a business minded person, doesn't exhibit interest for the children. After every lesson, I will need to reteach my daughter, to ensure she understand all concepts being taught.
BUT I love the MPM materials. They are very comprehensive, and help build my child's math interest and most importantly with the material, I can enforce the correct concept teaching and critical thinking for my child.

After 9 months, I have decided to call a quit at MPM Yishun. Decided to give MPM another chance so I enrolled my daughter into MPM Sembawang at Sun Plaza. For the last 4 months with MPM Sun Plaza, to my surprise, my daughter has been very independent lately, do not require much teaching from my end after classes. I give the credit to Teacher Wendy and Teacher Sim. :thankyou: Happy Belated Teacher's Day to the ladies!

At home both my gal and myself has no discipline, when am free she's not free for me to teach, when she's free am not free...

So it works for me to go mpm cos gal spend lots of time practicing and the teacher can teach and correct their mistakes on the spot etc.

Hi, chance upon this post and would like to know more about mpm punggol. Would like to know if your child is still there and possible to chat via email or fb as I seldom log in here. Thanks
