I joined Ace Brainery at the end of year 5. I had been struggling to cope with both my CCA and my academics and ended up falling  rather behind my peers in chemistry. I had been looking around for tuitions, and people around me have been encouraging me to try out Ace Brainery. And I must say that it was the right decision to give them a shot! Desmond has a unique way of teaching that really piqued my interest in Chemistry. The best part is that he cares for each and every one of his students. He bothers to go out of his way to help me. There were numerous times when he answered my question late into the night just to make sure that I understood the content that he has taught. I really gained so much confidence in the subject and its because of him that I managed to pull my grades from a low 5 to an eventual 7. So if anyone is struggling with Chemistry, I will definitely recommend Ace Brainery to them!!!

I joined Ace Brainery after my secondary 4 mid year Chemistry exam which I failed. I started 1 on 1 lessons with Wilson who was extremely encouraging even though I really struggled to grasp the concepts initially. After only 2 months of lessons with him, my Chemistry grade jumped from a 3 to a 6.

In IB, I continued lessons at Ace Brainery under Desmond. His teaching was extremely helpful in bridging the gap between secondary and IB Chemistry, and keeping us on top of the curriculum for the entire of the 2 years. He taught us effective ways to learn the content, as well as efficient ways to tackle assessments - both of which played a large role in seeing me through my IB exams. I’m especially grateful that Desmond was always considerate of our busy schedules and gave us the bare minimum when it came to homework, and also for his patience in answering our many questions. He really made sure that we understood what we were learning and even took the time to schedule revision classes for us before our exams.

Thank you very much to both Wilson and Desmond for making Chemistry so enjoyable!

Chemistry has always been one of my weaker subjects in secondary school, but joining Ace Brainery has helped to greatly improve my understanding of the concepts. Desmond makes the lessons easy to follow and he has helped me to develop a good foundation in Chemistry, which definitely goes a long way when we have to learn the more complicated topics. His friendliness and patience creates an incredibly conducive and fun learning environment, where one is able to ask questions freely. He also gives really useful tips for exams that make exams a lot less stressful! After joining Ace, I happened to have a lot more time to focus on my other IB subjects too. Desmond is a really great teacher and I would definitely recommend Ace to anyone who finds Chemistry challenging!!!

Before joining Ace Brainery, Chemistry was my most feared subject as I found it very challenging to grasp the concepts. I am so thankful for Desmond because he miraculously makes these difficult concepts easy to understand and dramatically lowered the steep learning curve for me. Desmond’s notes are so clear that I always rely on my Ace Brainery notes, instead of the school’s notes. Desmond is also able to accurately spot questions, which is so helpful nearer to the examinations. Before I joined Ace Brainery, I was always behind in class and could not keep up with my peers. It is amazing that after attending the Ace Brainery crash courses and lessons, I was brought up to speed and could even excel in the subject. Desmond is not only an effective teacher, but also a caring one. He shows genuine concern for the progress of each and every student and I am so thankful for the huge amounts of effort that he puts in. I would really recommend Ace Brainery to any student taking Chemistry. Without Desmond, it would have been impossible to get a 7 for IB Chemistry! Thank you Desmond!!!

As someone who was caught up with many commitments in school, I found myself falling behind in terms of content, especially for HL Chemistry. Luckily for me, a friend of mine referred me to Desmond. He really helped me to catch up on the Chemistry content in school, and to even learn ahead of the school syllabus eventually. Although Desmond seems a bit intimidating at the start, his teaching style is engaging, interactive and fun, which really helped me to focus during the lessons. He also provides many tips and tricks that helped me to remember certain key concepts during tests and exams. Outside of teaching, Desmond is also a down to earth, caring and understanding individual who you can definitely confide in when you are facing difficulties. Ace Brainery really helped to push me towards a 7 for HL Chem, and I would definitely recommend Ace to my juniors!
