To begin with, I’m not a math person, I don’t have a special aptitude for mathematics. I’ve always flunked my math ever since lower sec, even till my EOYs at Sec 3, I failed A and EMath horrendously, I’m always struggling and am at the bottom of the cohort or class. After joining tuition here at the end of sec 3, I became more confident at the start of sec 4,my AMath improved, I even remember topping the class once at MYE when I was in sec 4.As my AMath improved , my EMath improved as well. I’m glad that under a short span of 1 year, I’ve attained a distinction for both my math, something that I’ve always dreamt of but thought it was a silly dream that was miles away, but it came true, from an F9 to an A2. I’ve become more confidence of my abilities and strike off my perception that “Math is not my thing”. With hard work, with Ms Ang, comes success! (:
Ms Jolyn’s notes are precise so they are always the first material that I will refer to whenever I have troubles with my Amath homework. I still remember the last thing I held before I entered the examination hall was a compilation of her notes because it was so precise, I could catch the main points, the main concepts one last glance in case I forget them. The questions given in the notes are specially selected to tackle different question types so every question helps you to grasp the concept and basic foundation of every topic. Doing these questions time and again for my own revision builds up my confidence as being able to do these questions assures me that I will do just fine during tests. The next best thing is the small class , it’s quiet and it is an extremely conducive study environment ( in my opinion it’s more conducive than studying at home , or the library ) , you can concentrate well while you process and digest the new concepts . Ms Jolyn is very caring and EXTREMELY patient so it makes her very approachable so I will always clarify all my doubts with her regardless whether my questions makes sense or not , so long I have doubts , I always clarify and leave the classroom without any doubts . She’s not the type to scold you when you make silly mistakes instead she will go through with you step by step where you go wrong in your working so fret not and ask whatever is troubling you! She has taken the extra mile to mark the practice papers I have done and went through my mistakes with me , because of that , I often stay back , way past 2 and a half hours but she’ll still help me with my work. To say I’m filled with gratitude is an understatement, I have no words in mind right now to express my gratitude to her.
If I were to choose again, I will still attend tuition classes here. One regret I have would be not being able to attend her lessons earlier at the start of Sec 3 but at the end of Sec 3, still , I’m glad to have been able to attend her lessons . It is gratifying that I have not missed out on this amazing one year of tuition lessons I have with her. She’s more than just a tutor, a teacher, but a mentor and sometimes like a friend whom you can always count on. Thank you so much, Ms Jolyn 😀
