Desmond is the most dedicated tutor I've met in all my years of schooling. Since I’ve met him, he has far exceeded the role of a tutor and has filled the role of a mentor throughout my A levels journey. His commitment to nurturing his students’ academic growth shows clearly in his work ethic. Desmond never took more than a day to patiently answer my slew of panicked questions. Before I joined Ace Brainery, I had barely been scraping through my school examinations and often considered myself lucky when I passed. I found that my effort rarely translated to results because my study method had been extremely unfocused. Desmond was able to streamline my study method to increase my efficiency and I saw my results improve exponentially. During CT2s, I managed to scrape an S grade. In the short period of 2-3 months between CT2 and prelims, I managed to improve to a C grade. In the month between prelims and A levels, I managed to secure an A grade. The trait that made Desmond an exceptional mentor was the fact that he never gave up on any of his students - he genuinely believed that hard work would pay off. Although some may consider his efforts harsh, they were definitely effective. If he hadn’t been as strict as he was, I almost definitely would not have done as well. Under Desmond, anyone who is willing to put in their effort will go a long long way, just like I did. Thank you Desmond!
