My experience with Ace Brainery has been one that has equipped me with not only a solid understanding of Chemistry, but with a lasting interest for the subject. I can walk into class with many doubts on certain topics, and practically walk out with all my doubts cleared. I think the thing that I am most thankful for in my classes with Desmond was that classes were always fun. Zero regrets since signing up!!!

‘Lukewarm', would in a word, be how I’d describe my initial attitude towards chemistry. I neither detested it, nor particularly enjoyed it —it was just a necessity. With this tepid attitude, I managed 5s, 6s and the occasional 7 with just my trusty Marshall Cavendish. Not horrible grades, no. However, I felt a certain un-sustainability in my then method, as though there were gaping holes in my knowledge that I’d somehow managed to skirt around in every single test I took in school. Desmond solved this problem for me.

At Ace Brainery, Desmond, quite brutally (but with all the love in the world), dissected my prior knowledge of chemistry, identifying the aforementioned gaps in knowledge I wasn’t able to find myself. Over the course of almost 2 years, my initially lamentable chemistry foundation was fortified ten-fold, clearing any doubts I had previously harbored about most chemistry topics. This strong foundation brought my lukewarm attitude to a boil. The links between each topic gradually became clearer and clearer, as though each class came with a guaranteed epiphany. I not only enjoyed Desmond’s chill (like super chill) and effective classes, but also chemistry itself. Naturally, my grades saw a steady rise and 7s in chemistry weren’t goals, but rather expectations.

I give this testimonial with no exaggeration whatsoever. Do yourself a favor and join Ace Brainery.

The only thing holding me back from having tuition was cost and I was also pretty skeptical of this sorcery Desmond uses which can even push one from a U to an A. But joining Ace Brainery was something I’m so glad I eventually did nearing As because not only does Desmond makes Chem fuss-free and straightforward, his confidence in his own teaching made me very relieved as well. He also helped financially which is definitely a plus point I’m very grateful for. If you’re looking for a trusty Chem tutor, I’m positive Ace Brainery is your best bet out there.

Ace Brainery is a brilliant chemistry tuition centre, not only because of the knowledge it imparts, but also because of the teacher who makes the lessons interesting and engaging for everyone. Through Ace Brainery, I managed to learn much more about chemistry than I thought I ever would. Not only did Desmond help me improve my chemistry skills, he also inculcated my love for the subject, which not just any teacher is able to do. From struggling with Chem till getting the eventual A for my H2 Chem at A Levels, Desmond was there all the way for me, not only academically, but he also looked after my welfare, stepping out of his role as a tuition teacher to put in effort to ensure that I was doing well in other areas of my life too. I am especially grateful for the financial aid he provided for me, as without it, I don't think I could have progressed so far too. Something else that deserves special mention is that my percentile in NYJC doubled from about 50 to 95 in merely a few months with him.

My entire perspective of chemistry, tremendous improvement in results and a gradual love for it is all credited to Desmond! Without him, I definitely would never have achieved the same outcome. Back before I knew of Ace Brainery, I disliked Chemistry as I was consistently bad at it. Lectures and homework were all dreadful and I didn't know what was going on most of the time in J2. However, after I started attending lessons in June, that's when things changed. Desmond's unique style of teaching was good as he recapped whatever I misunderstood. His explanations were concise and rich in content, often covering what was tested in exams. Each time he would ask questions to challenge our thinking and his scolding really played a huge role in making me always prepared for any questions to come. Apart from his teaching style, he is also very approachable and friendly, always ready to reply to any queries I have. He genuinely cares for his students' welfare and would ask how I am doing from time to time. He is not just an amazing teacher, but also an amazing friend! Because of him, I improved from 31.0 (BT1- U) to 90.1 (PRELIM- B) percentile within just 5 months! Without Ace Brainery I would definitely not have come this far!
