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
I am writing this email to compliment one of your teachers at your centre, who had taught my son, Gan Eu Jin, for the past one and a half years. In view of a change of Eu Jin's CCA training schedule as of 1 Jul 2017, I had no choice but to pull him out of Teacher Rachel's Sat 2pm Pri 5 class as of last week and transferred him to another session at the East Campus. As such, I would like to covey my thanks to Teacher Rachel for her patience, guidance and care given to Eu Jin during her weekly session with him for the last many months. Teacher Rachel has always been so reassuring and encouraging towards my son. In addition, I am very sure her teaching techniques, emotional support, dedication and commitment had, in no small way, contributed to my son's enthusiasm in attending classes at Mind Stretcher as well as his good results so far in writing tests. Pls convey my thanks to Teacher Rachel and I will definitely recommend Mind Stretcher for their Writer Toolbox classes and especially with awesome teachers like Teacher Rachel helming them! Keep up the good work MS!

Parent of Shamik Karthik
We Would like to express our sincere thanks to Ms Rozi who taught our son Justin Lo High Achiever English @ East Campus MS. Ms Rozi is instrumental in Justin achieving A* in the 2018 PSLE English and furthering his interest in English. Ms Rozi is able to delve deep and be flexible in explaining difficult words/grammar concisely and continuously encouragees the students to read. She is also an engaging teacher whose passion and dedication is palpable in her lessons and interactions with students. We are very fortunate to have such a responsible and passionate teacher.

Teacher Ryan is the best teacher we ever had who is very responsible and dedicated.We'd like to thank him not only because my son's English writing improved a lot, but also the spirit he conveys; you can really feel his passion for teaching and his love for the children.

Parent of Chen Chu Yu Anakin
I would like to thank Cheryl's P6 English Teacher Mrs Shum for asking her to re-attempt her composition questions every time. It really helps! I have never seen her getting such high marks(33.5) previously. While she may not be the best in class, I am comforted by her great improvement!

Parent of Ang Min Xuan Cheryl
Many questions that were asked during our Primary 6 English lessons in MS, were relevant to the questions tested in my school examinations, as well as in PSLE. Those lessons were extremely useful for I applied those techniques taught, in my PSLE. My MS teacher, Mrs Shum was very supportive and she always encouraged me, standing by my side during all tough times. As a result, I was able to obtain a score that was higher than I had expected.

Jerome feels motivated and looks forward to attending her lessons every week as the lessons are always fun and engaging.

Hi Teacher Colman, I just want to thank you for teaching Shao Heng for Primary 5 English! You have made the lessons so interesting and he has picked up his confidence in English with your help. It was a challenging 2 years with the Covid 19 situation and I'm glad all of us pulled through the PSLE paper. Thank you once again!

Parent of Ong Shao Heng
My child likes Mr Ryan’s writing class. Mr Ryan conducts the class with passion. He not only teaches and explains the lesson content clearly, but also puts great effort in marking the student’s worksheets detailedly for their improvement. He also goes the extra mile in helping our students in learning English subject, not only in writing but also in the language usage part. Other than the weekly writing class, he teaches 3 times of lessons weekly to help our students improve in their language usage. He shares his valuable knowledge and advice with great dedication. Mr Ryan also inspires our students in preparing for PSLE. He often sends motivational messages to parents to be conveyed to the students. His messages motivates the student greatly.

Parent of He Daile
My daughter just started taking Mind Stretcher's Primary PSLE A* Writer classes a few months ago. the course is super fun, interesting and the notes are comprehensive.

Parent of Khor Swee Sim Clarice
I am really grateful to all the teachers who helped me achieve what I have. I was really poor in writing and achieved borderline passes. However, the PSLE A* Writers tuition provided me with many materials. The writing style, phrases and content really helped me improve my writing. I also did not have a wide vocab range and used words that were vague. However, the summary of the vocab words provided in the materials really helped have a wider vocabulary bank which still helps me now in secondary school

Rishika Kashyap
Thank you Teacher Wai Chu for helping me to improve my writing skills! During first week of PSLE A* Writers tuition, my composition grades were very low. Gradually, after your constant helpful nagging and encouraging, my grade started increasing. From 17/40 to 37/40, my grades became higher and higher. I became the top in class at school and then my level! Thank you for encouraging me!

Jacinta Lin
I have a few Mind Stretcher teachers that helped me to be where I am today. One of them is Mr Muizz, he taught me Writer's Toolbox during P5. He also told a lot of jokes and it was quite funny. My classmates and I really enjoyed his lessons.

Tristan Tang
Just wanted to say thank you so much! I would never have been where I am today in SOTA as a Literary Arts student if it wasn’t for the Primary 5 Writers Toolbox classes and Teacher Asoda who taught me how to get my creative juices flowing!

Dhruv Praful Saijare
Hi Teacher, Bala here. I got 35/40 for my English Compo, thank you for your help!
