I am truly grateful to have met a teacher like Desmond. Without him, Chemistry would’ve been a lot harder to grasp. Prior to joining Ace Brainery, Chemistry was a subject I hated and simply could not understand. However, under his guidance and encouragement, Chemistry became extremely enjoyable and the concepts were a lot easier to digest. Desmond always goes the extra mile for his students to make sure there are sufficient opportunities for them to learn and apply their skills. Using his methodology, I saw drastic improvement in all my other subjects as well. Above all, he is a genuine friend and mentor who has deeply impacted me and taught me much more than just Chemistry. Teachers like him are truly hard to come by!!!!!!

I had 3 Chemistry tutors prior to taking my O level exams. Wilson was my third and last tutor and my search ended there, there was no need for anyone else.  Patient and familiar with the O level Chemistry syllabus, Wilson helped simplify many difficult concepts and its applications, which greatly boosted my confidence in the subject. In my 2 years with Wilson as my tutor, Chemistry was my strongest Science subject and I went on to score an A1 in the O level examinations. His tutelage has led me to pursue Chemistry as a HL subject in my IB diploma programme and I have found the good foundational knowledge Wilson laid for me in Secondary school very helpful even now. I am so grateful to Wilson for his guidance and for those times he cheered me on especially when I was feeling burnt out. Thank you Wilson.

Before Wilson began teaching me Pure Chemistry after my Mid-Year Exams in Secondary 3, I was completely dumbfounded by even the simplest concepts. However, Wilson was able to pay close attention to certain key areas of weakness, and built upon them. By the end of my 1.5 years with Wilson, my Chemistry went from a E8 in Sec 3 to an A1 in the 'O’ Level Examinations! With Wilson's help, I was able to improve my confidence in Chemistry and achieve the highest grade possible! Thank you!

Chemistry was just like another subject to me, where I did not have particular interest in before I met Wilson. However, after I started lessons with him, I started to feel that Chemistry was not as boring as I thought it would have been. His unique teaching techniques played a great role in my change of attitude towards Chemistry. I can remember how he included all the short forms that made concepts easier to memorize and the tips and tricks which allowed for the better tackling of questions. He was really patient with me in going through the foundations of Chemistry given my poor standard and was very effective in adapting to each students needs. Despite joining only a few months before my O level exams, I was able to get an A2 (from a C5!) which I was contented with, and this was all possible with him!

Wilson is a one-of-a-kind teacher. I joined him at the start of Secondary 3 in RGS and continued all the way until the end of my Secondary School journey. Before I went to him, I was attaining a fail grade for my Chemistry papers. My inability to grasp the concept of the topics I was learning then led to my dislike for the subject. Wilson understood this and therefore did his best to make lessons more interesting and engaging to get me more invested in the subject. He was one of those rare teachers that you could be completely comfortable around and bond with, which made lessons fun. He was also able to teach in a manner that managed to help me thoroughly understand the concepts that I could not grasp previously in school. Slowly but surely, Chemistry became a much more manageable and enjoyable subject for me. I finally passed my first Chemistry paper just 3 months after joining him. From there on, my chemistry grades continued improving steadily and by the end of my Secondary 4 journey, I managed to attain an overall grade of 84 for Chemistry, where the cohort median was 71. This huge improvement in my grades is a testament to his teaching.
