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.
