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.

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
There was a significant improvement for my overall results from Prelim ( AL 21 ) to PSLE ( AL13). The tuition I had at MS was science and I had improved from (Prelim) AL 6 to (PSLE) AL 3. I did well for the subject under the encouragement, guidance and help from Ms Liew and Mr Alvin Kuek. :)

Ms Liew is a teacher who cares about her students. She always go the extra miles to check and update the parents on the progress of the students. Her comments are useful in helping me better teach my child and work on his weaknesses. During pandemic online lesson, she is the only teacher in mind stretcher (other than Teacher Adeline yeo) that I can count on her to ensure my child completed all assignments. She has contributed to my child learning journeys. Overall I am grateful to have such a marvelous teacher. :)

Parent of Siew Li Wei
I am the parent of Cao Jiasong (ID: 13903) who attended P6 Science class at your center in 2021. He was in the regular class on Thursday 7:30pm taught by Mr Siva. I'd like to express my sincere appreciation to Mr Siva for helping my son improve his Science subject significantly by achieving the good result of AL2 in PSLE 2021. Actually his science results during P5 and P6 (SA1 and Prelim) ranged between AL4-AL5, therefore it is defininately a nice surprise to see him achieve AL2 in PSLE. I noticed that my son was always motivated to attend Mr Siva's lesson which was fun. He did enjoy the class learning activities such as Kahoot games that could reinforce the students' understanding on the key concepts. Also, I'd like to highlight that Mr Siva showed concern about my child's learning progress by checking on his acadmic performance in school and gave prompt and constructive feedback to encourage him to do well prior to PSLE. I believe that both teaching effectiveness and close communication with the student and parent contributed to my child's good progress made for this subject. Once again, I'd like to say a big thank you to Mr Siva for teaching Jiasong, as well as to thank Mind Stretcher for organizing many insightful webinars and bootcamps to help us get through and overcome the hardship of PSLE amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Parent of Cao Jiasong
Before joining MS, my results have always been called average and that they were always stagnant. Neither improving nor deteroriating. So receiving my AL1 for science this time was a big shock as it was my first time. Now I know that all my hardwork has paid off. The notes given by MS and even the extra knowledge and practice that was provided in the sets of worksheets given to us were of great help!

Mr Bernard Sew is a dedicated and effective teacher. I certainly hope he would consider continuing to teach the current P4 Tuesday online class when the students move on to P5 next year.

Parent of Arielle Teo Le Yann
Mr Ee is encouraging and kind towards us. He always finds ways to engage us into learning with him too. One thing he does that is unique is that he always prepares a lot of tools for the lesson before the lesson even starts. When we have a question, he will either show the answer in his google drive or search it up on google. When we have questions about exam formats, he will research about it and tell us the answer the week after. Mr Ee is very patient and thoughtful to us too. When we are given a ton of work, instead of giving it all in one go, he would split it up and ask us to hand up separately. I enjoy his classes as he also shows us youtube videos that is related to the lesson, which is fun and engaging. Altogether, I think that Mr Ee is a good teacher and I enjoy all his classes.

Thank you for your hard work and passion to make P5 Science classes more lively & interesting despite the fact it is a dry subjeect. If only there was a survey to vote for the best HBL teacher I am sure you would certainly be among the top. Once again, thank you.

I like that Mind Stretcher uses both informative videos as well as hands-on experiments to help students learn. Being able to see the reactions of experiments makes lessons more fun. Mind Stretcher also prepares students in advance after the end-of-year examinations are over, with topics that will be taught in the coming year to familiarise students with the syllabus.

Mind Stretcher has complemented my experience in Primary School and further enhanced my passion in the languages and the sciences to unimaginable extents, thanks to the ardent educators in Mind Stretcher. My P6 Mind Stretcher teachers, namely, Mrs Rae (Eng), Mr Kelvin Lim (Sci), Ms Joanna Tan (Maths) and Mdm Soo Lian (H. Chi); were all educators with a difference - they shaped me academically and socially.
