Our testimonials

What our students & parents say about us

Nay Wun
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! 

Parents of U Hian
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. Even though I have a lot of questions, you still answer them using your best effort which I appreciate very much. You are a great teacher 👍 Thank you very much and wish you a great year ahead !

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!

Mother of Elvyn Ee
Ms Christine Ong is an extremely benevolent teacher and a role model for my classmates to emulate. Not only is she kind and patient when covering new concepts, she will constantly share with us her vocabulary bank and drop gold nuggets on tips to do well in our essay. As a result of her passionate teaching, I managed to jump from a C5 grade in secondary 1 to an A1 grade in secondary 4. Apart from assiduously preparing comprehension papers from other schools for us to practice, she always conjures up a myriad of vocabulary expressions for us to memorise and utilise in our essay. Due to this, my essay has jumped to a 26/30 just for my prelim alone, which is an extraordinary feat for someone born in a Chinese speaking background like me. Additionally, she will require us to scan our examination papers so she can better comprehend our weaknesses and work on addressing that. Moreover, she will keep us up to date with global affairs taking place around the world every lesson. I remember vividly when she shared with us the story pertaining to an old Asian lady being accosted by a caucasian man during a hate-crime incident happening in the US. Furthermore, Ms Christine will go the extra mile of highlighting the misused vocabulary terms in editing and explain to us the wordclass and noun forms that are improperly used, which is not required in the Mind Stretcher curriculum. In a nutshell, Ms Christine is undoubtedly one of the best teachers I've had in my school life. I fervently hope that she is offered a larger platform to inspire minds and nurture our nation's future. Thank you.

Mind Stretcher had been very helpful in my Secondary 4 learning journey, almost miraculously turning a mere pass into a distinction. Mrs Shum, my English teacher at Mind Stretcher, had provided us with plenty of resources, and practised with each and every one of us tirelessly.

Tenzin Dhakar
Before I enrolled in Mind Stretcher in Sec 3, I was doing very badly in my common test exams. I was getting around C6 or near failure for my English. But now I’ve gotten A1 for my O-Levels and I can see that I’ve made steady progress throughout my 2 years in Mind Stretcher.

Subramaniam Karthikeyan
Mrs Shum's lessons have equipped me with the essential skills required to tackle the English Language paper, allowing me to become more confident when writing. Furthermore, her lessons not only helped to cultivate a deeper interest in the languages and the humanities, but also a deeper understanding and appreciation of the world we live in. Her sharing of personal experiences is always something to look forward to!

Ms Joyce helps improve our grades with interesting lessons, and help give personalised feedback as well as come up with her own questions to make sure that her lessons are tailored to suit every student’s needs.

Teacher Joyce is engaging, enforces discipline and communicate with my son to improve his grades.

Parent of Koh Zi Xuan
Dylan joined Mrs Shum in Sec 3. He originally resisted having tuition but he was completely sold after just 1 lesson. Mrs Shum is a very dedicated teacher and knew my son's character well. Dylan was motivated with her teaching and never missed her lessons. I am happy that Mrs Shum has managed to stretch his potential from a B4 student into an A2 for O'Levels. We are so lucky to have her. Thank you Mrs Shum!

Chan Jun Wei Dylan
Teacher Mavis is extremely thorough with her explanation of the course content. She has always been so assuring and encouraging towards us, making learning fun. In addition, her teaching techniques, emotional support, dedication and commitment have contributed to my enthusiasm in attending her classes. I will definitely recommend Mind Stretcher to others!

Liu Yuxuan
I will like to thank my past Mind Stretcher Teachers, Mr Saiful, my lower secondary English teacher, for his kind encouragements when I was struggling with English

My daughter has been taking Mind Stretcher's Secondary 2 English classes at MS East Campus. She really enjoys participating in class with Teacher Joyce and her classmates. Thank you very much for your great efforts!

The Secondary 1 English teacher is very nice. She gives us notes which are useful and helps us during last minute revision. We see an improvement in grades since joining!
