How big is the class size?
When our class reach to a size of about 15, we will open new classes to reduce the average size of the class. As we allow students to perform make up classes, therefore we cannot commit to a class size but generally the weekend class is bigger than the weekday classes.
We can ensure the quality of each lesson will not be compromised regardless of the class size and where the students are from. Our tutors are so well versed in the subject that they know exactly where the misconception are often located and able to accurately anticipate the questions the student will ask. Our tutors will also know what are the questions the students will ask but did not ask.

What is your teaching methodology and how it is different from other tuition center or MOE schools?
There are numerous students complained to use that their teachers do not know how to delivery the teachings well and the lecture notes lacked details. However, there are also others who complained the notes being too detailed and difficult to comprehend. This may make learning difficult and students find it overwhelming to even solve a simple question.
Our task here is to ensure we find the best tutor and getting just the right amount of simplified content and sufficient practices ranging from basic, intermediate to advanced level to be delivered to the student.
The lesson is basically broken up into 3 parts: Absorb, Apply and Acknowledge
A: Absorb the concept
A: Apply the knowledge
A: Acknowledge and learn from your mistakes. Do not repeat them.
How do you test your students if they are ready for exam?
A common question we obtained often is how do you know you are on track? Our tutors will test you. A 30 minutes test which consist of several topics or a major topic will be given. The condition will simulate a real examination environment whereby the students are expected to perform under time pressure and stress environment in a typical school exam. After each test, a review will be given off to highlight some of the common mistakes made and ways to improve and gaining a better score. Through this assignment, you will discover your weakness and bottleneck of the subject that will allow you to course correct it at an early stage. In this way, you will improve more rapidly and your path to the subject mastery will be smoother and sooner than you realize.
Are there any make-up lessons?
The center specializes in science and maths tuition classes. Hence, we offer make up lesson within the week. However, in the case whereby you have missed the entire week lesson, we have the digital chemistry lesson for you to have the make up lesson.
Will I be able to catch up as I join late?
Regardless of the time that you join the class, we will ensure you will be able to catch up with the rest of the class and preparing you in the coming examination. However, you have to know that the class is not going to slow down for you and you will be positively stressed to run alongside with them and from our experience, you will learn faster under this environment. In order to ensure you are always on the right track, we will provide you with the essential notes and practice exercises for you to master the topics and with tutors helping to answer all your queries.
