Our testimonials

What our students & parents say about us

Mrs Shum is a very dedicated teacher. She has given me detailed feedback to improve my writing and her lessons are very engaging. I really appreciate the personalised feedback which helps me identify areas I should work on more. She goes the extra mile to share interesting facts every lesson which has helped expand my general knowledge in so many ways. With Mrs Shum's tips and MS Worksheets explaining how to master various components, I'm able to answer questions with greater confidence. Lastly, Mrs Shum cares deeply about our emotional well-being, and she always reminds us that trying our best is more important than the results.

I would like to thank the Chinese Language teacher very much for her effort, concern and encouragement for my child! He is very happy to be in her class and has enjoyed the Chinese Language lessons very much. He has tried his very best in the PSLE examination last year 2022 and his Chinese has improved. The constant encouragement from his Chinese Language teacher makes a difference and goes a long way!  Thank you Mr Kuek and all the teachers very much who has taught him and shared during the online bootcamp and the webinars! We really appreciate the effort, time, love and understanding put into preparation of the examination booklets and materials and staying behind after the online lessons to answer the students' questions! Wishing all the teachers and staff a very Happy blessed year 2023 ahead!

Dear Mrs Shum, thank you so much for all the guidance and support you’ve given me since i joined ms. Since i joined at a pretty late stage, i didn’t expect myself to acquire so much valuable knowledge that allowed me to learn English from a whole new perspective, as well as to perceive life in many different aspects. Thank you for always being so generous in sharing with us your personal experiences that engaged us during class, and making English such a fun subject for us explore the wonders of it! Thank you for taking the extra mile to further support me in English Literature as well, it really has been very useful!! It has truly been an eye-opening experience learning from you and I will remember these lessons as part of the unforgettable memories of learning in this subject❤️🥰

Mrs Shum is a caring teacher who is concerned about her students and their well-being. She has helped me improve in my English and has always been very caring towards me. She stresses on our mental health and has encouraged us a lot. Her teaching is amazing and i love how she shares interesting facts related to the topic we were studying and she exposed us to the basics of general paper too. To add, Mrs Shum gives specific feedback on our work which allowed us to know what we can improve on. The MS comprehension worksheets were also of great help as they allow me to know how to answer certain questions in a straightforward manner. Mrs Shum marks quite strictly which also further prepared me well for the O-levels where the marking is usually more lenient. As a result, I learnt how to do better and could gauge where i stand. Mrs Shum also made me realise that i was better in personal recount essays which allowed me to do well in the O-levels. Overall, MS worksheets were of great help and useful with specific tips and strategies. Thank you so much.

Hi Ms Mavis, I would like to thank you for the teaching. Your lessons are engaging and I can always focus on it. I still remember vividly your patience when answering all my questions.

Dear Mr Alvin, Just want to text you to say "Thank you for all you have done for all the kids! Elvyn scored AL6 for his 2022 PSLE!“ A special mention to Teacher Meili, Teacher Audrey, Teacher Ryan and 丁老师。Not only were they never annoyed by his endless questions and constant requests for ways to improve himself, they guided him and encouraged him to do more and better. We are so blessed to have met all of you! I had introduced friends to send their kids to MS and will surely help to promote MS in the future too!

The Mind Stretcher GEP Preparatory Programme has helped me; for English, it has helped me with finding clues in the cloze passages which I initially found quite hard to find. But after my teacher taught me, at the end of the 10 sessions, I felt that I’d mastered the skill. For Vocabulary, I learnt about, a 100 new words from the GEP Prep sessions. Around half of those words were used in the GEP Selection Test. Without Mind Stretcher’s training I would not have been able to narrow down the options given in the Vocabulary section. The Math lessons were also beneficial for all the students as we were able to ask questions and interact with one another. For the General Ability paper, the question types were almost identical to those I was given at Mind Stretcher which made me feel like I had adapted to answering them

I attended the P3 GEP Prep Lab and the Bootcamp for both English and Maths last year, just about when the pandemic struck. I would like to thank Mr Andy for everything - encouraging us to try again when we make mistakes, giving us one detailed explanation after another and an occasional entertaining joke here and there. He was one of my all time favourite teachers.

On my very first Mind Stretcher lesson at West Campus for Math, I realized that the GEP Prep Lab curriculum was not a cakewalk. The topic tree planting was especially hard for me. However, I was fortunate to have passionate educators like Mr Din, my English teacher, who shared with me fantastic words and phrases that helped me alot in my cloze passage and Mr Aziz, my Maths teacher, who taught me terrific Maths concepts such as remainder problems. Without them, I would have never passed round 2 of the GEP Selection Test.

To Teacher Shannel Thank you for teaching me! At first, I was very bad at Math and English. After you taught me, I became better and better. I am more confident in English and Math now.

Hi Teacher Varrick, thanks a lot for the sharing. So glad to know that Ruijie is doing good in GEP class. Sometimes he's kind of lazy to get started/warm up especially at the beginning. Really hope through the class that he could get pushed to achieve something bigger than he think of. Thanks again for your kindness in helping him during the class.

Parent of Shen RuiJie (Ethan)
Actually, we are just the first generation of citizens, so actually we are not English speakers. At home, we always speak in Chinese so his English is learnt from Mind Stretcher. This is the only English tuition that he takes. I think that really helped him a lot.

Parent of Wang Yuen Cheng
My son is going to the GEP classes at Grantrall Mall every Saturday. The course materials are good and he's learning new skills - so regardless of the selection test later this year, I'm already quite happy with this progress.
