I joined Ace Brainery a few months before my GCE ‘A’ Levels. I had difficulties tackling basic questions that would have prevented me from even getting a B in my school exams. Desmond was easily able to identify issues that JC Chem students frequently have, and shared it with his students. He condensed the topics into easily understandable concepts by breaking them down and also introduced his own acronyms, revealed tricks to knowing what the question is asking for to make sure that we would be able to complete the paper in time with accuracy and precision. He did not only teach us to work hard, but also to work smart. I could notice myself improve significantly in the subject compared to the time before I joined Ace Brainery. Lessons were simple but effective. We had to jot down notes and answers in class, and were also able to ask questions in person and on WhatsApp. All these really helped to consolidate my knowledge in Chemistry, and piqued my interest in the subject, pushing my grades from a D in my J2 mid year exams to an eventual A in the A Level exams. Desmond is very understanding of the tight schedule students experience, and gives just the right amount of pressure and work to us. He also encourages and motivates his students. Interestingly, I was eventually no longer daunted by the subject, and in fact even started to like and enjoy it. I would definitely recommend Ace Brainery to my friends and juniors as it is a conducive environment to learn. Thank you, Desmond!

The only thing holding me back from having tuition was cost and I was also pretty skeptical of this sorcery Desmond uses which can even push one from a U to an A. But joining Ace Brainery was something I’m so glad I eventually did nearing As because not only does Desmond makes Chem fuss-free and straightforward, his confidence in his own teaching made me very relieved as well. He also helped financially which is definitely a plus point I’m very grateful for. If you’re looking for a trusty Chem tutor, I’m positive Ace Brainery is your best bet out there.

Ace Brainery is a brilliant chemistry tuition centre, not only because of the knowledge it imparts, but also because of the teacher who makes the lessons interesting and engaging for everyone. Through Ace Brainery, I managed to learn much more about chemistry than I thought I ever would. Not only did Desmond help me improve my chemistry skills, he also inculcated my love for the subject, which not just any teacher is able to do. From struggling with Chem till getting the eventual A for my H2 Chem at A Levels, Desmond was there all the way for me, not only academically, but he also looked after my welfare, stepping out of his role as a tuition teacher to put in effort to ensure that I was doing well in other areas of my life too. I am especially grateful for the financial aid he provided for me, as without it, I don't think I could have progressed so far too. Something else that deserves special mention is that my percentile in NYJC doubled from about 50 to 95 in merely a few months with him.

My entire perspective of chemistry, tremendous improvement in results and a gradual love for it is all credited to Desmond! Without him, I definitely would never have achieved the same outcome. Back before I knew of Ace Brainery, I disliked Chemistry as I was consistently bad at it. Lectures and homework were all dreadful and I didn't know what was going on most of the time in J2. However, after I started attending lessons in June, that's when things changed. Desmond's unique style of teaching was good as he recapped whatever I misunderstood. His explanations were concise and rich in content, often covering what was tested in exams. Each time he would ask questions to challenge our thinking and his scolding really played a huge role in making me always prepared for any questions to come. Apart from his teaching style, he is also very approachable and friendly, always ready to reply to any queries I have. He genuinely cares for his students' welfare and would ask how I am doing from time to time. He is not just an amazing teacher, but also an amazing friend! Because of him, I improved from 31.0 (BT1- U) to 90.1 (PRELIM- B) percentile within just 5 months! Without Ace Brainery I would definitely not have come this far!

Ace Brainery is the best tuition centre around for someone that is looking for a fun and lively study environment, but yet is able to learn alot! In all my lessons with Desmond, I never really dreaded any and always looked forward to the next class cause Desmond makes his lessons really fun and interesting. Chem didn't feel like chem with him... He really taught it in a way that made it interesting and I really promise he's super experienced and knowledgeable, about not just the Chemistry syllabus but also what the schools expect and teach.

He has helped boost a lot of my friends from a U grade to an A and none of my friends whom I have recommended regret joining him! He's a great tutor who's fun-loving, chill and teaches very well. Your lessons will never be boring! You'll never regret joining him and thanks to him and his teaching I got an A in the A levels!!!
