When I first came to Ace Brainery in the middle of Y5, I had just taken my first exam and got 59%, a solid 5 points, one of the lowest in my class. I couldn't even understand the difference between an atom and an ion, let alone comprehend anything else I was learning in school. Desmond was not only extremely clear in explaining all the concepts to me, but he has a unique talent of making the most difficult concepts simple to understand - something I had never encountered in Chemistry before stepping into Ace for tuition. After gaining a new perspective about Chemistry, I began to love the subject so much more. Instead of feeling daunted by it, I was inspired to work harder for the subject. Not only did Chemistry become my favourite subject by the time I graduated from IB, but it also became my best subject. I managed to get 89% for IB which is a 7. My decision to join Ace was honestly one of the best decisions I made during my IB journey and I definitely highly recommend Desmond to anyone who is seeking help for Chemistry!
