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!

Before I started Chemistry lessons at Ace Brainery, I found it really difficult to understand the subject. It was really tough to keep up with my school’s lecture pace, and I was often clueless during my school’s tutorials. Through Desmond’s constant guidance and comprehensive notes, I was able to grasp the main concepts much more easily. He would also clear my doubts outside of tuition time every single time without fail, and even take the effort to explain them in great detail. Nearing our A levels, he also provides crash courses for us to attend. Each lesson covers a different topic, thus we were able to brush up on specific topics that we were weaker in, which made it very helpful. Desmond is a very dedicated teacher who genuinely cares a lot about his students, and I would definitely recommend everyone to join Ace Brainery. Had I not attended Ace Brainery, I definitely would not have been able to secure my A in H2 Chemistry for the A levels.

I joined Ace Brainery in J1 after my terrible mid-term exam results. Before this, I never truly understood the Chemistry concepts taught in school and always struggled to understand the logic. However, with Desmond's help, my grades got quickly pulled up from an E to a C for the promotional exams. Desmond simplified Chemistry by making the concepts easy to understand and also linking them to one another. I began to much more confident in Chemistry, and I could not believe that I actually ended up loving the subject. I would definitely recommend Ace Brainery to anyone struggling with Chemistry! I wouldn't have done it without Desmond's help. It was truly an exciting journey here at Ace Brainery. Thank you Desmond!

I started attending Desmond's Chemistry lessons mid-way through JC2, as he was very highly recommended. Before that, I didn’t have much interest in the subject and merely see it as a requirement. Desmond’s classes were super engaging and he kept everyone on their toes throughout the entire duration of his lessons. The questions he posed in class were good refreshers (although embarrassing at times if I answered wrongly, haha). He made me realise how important the basics were even at the JC level. Desmond somehow has enough time to mark all the papers he gives us for revision and answer every one of our questions outside of class, which really shows his dedication to helping his students improve. After a while, I started to become interested in Chemistry, and I even looked forward to the weekly lessons! Never once did I come out of class having not gained/learned something. Despite being his student for a short while, Desmond’s lessons and teaching style really impressed me (and made me laugh). Thank you for the enjoyable semester, Desmond!

My seniors introduced Ace Brainery to me during the mid of my JC1 when I was struggling with Chemistry. Within 2 months, my Chemistry grades improved from a D to B for my Mid Year Examinations. Desmond makes learning Chemistry very interesting, and his lessons also motivate me to do well. Furthermore, his interactive teaching style allows for me to actively participate in class and deepen my understanding in the subject matter. He also makes the memorising of content happen more easily through questions in class and also through his own mnemonics. His lessons are also very tailored and applicable to my school exams, and eventually the A Levels. One thing that I really appreciate about Desmond is his availability! Whenever I face problems while attempting additional questions, I feel very comfortable with texting him because I know that he will answer my queries even though it is considered as extra work for him. Desmond is a very passionate and motivational tutor who  really believes in all of us. He is really a morale booster. Thank you so much!
