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! 

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!

Teacher James is a highly dedicated teacher to our class, giving us invaluable tips and tricks in order to score for my physics examinations :) in addition he is more than willing to extend further help beyond the stipulated lesson time, always staying back with us whenever we require consultations or have difficulty grasping certain concepts. Teacher James has been nothing short of encouraging over the past year, as he pushes us to give our best in the face of adversity. overall, he has been integral in making my time at Mindstretcher enriching and fulfilling, and i am very grateful to have been taught by him

Leck Qiantong tarra
I think the materials given to us to learn really helps me in school and helps me learn and understand better in school. This also helps me to improve in my Science and has helped me achieve better grades in Science. My teacher, Mrs Tang, is very kind, caring, motherly, understanding and approachable. I really appreciate her efforts to make learning in Mind Stretcher more interesting, fun and comfortable. I have really enjoyed myself here. Thank you!

Chin Choi Yin
Mind Stretcher’s lessons have helped improve my answering technique for questions. So, now I feel more confident when I answer questions. For example, for Chemistry, it has helped me constantly get 'A'

Cheryl Low
Teacher Kishan is a very very dedicated teacher. He really goes the extra mile, reminding students weekly to submit homework and even has consultations with them outside of lesson time. He works closely with me and provides feedback constantly on my son's performance. My son, Xin Jie, is really blessed to have him as his Sec 4 Maths teacher.

Parent of Ong Xin Jie
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.

Li Long Guang
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!

Tan Dan Feng
To Teacher Marcus, thank you for teaching me A maths for the past 2 years. When I first attended Mind Stretcher, I was a constant F9 student and had no hope I would be able to do well for A maths. However, your teaching enabled me to push myself and allowed me to continuously strive for the best. This helped me not give up and I began learning with a hopeful heart. Due to your teaching, I remembered that during my first ever A maths exam, I was just hoping for a pass as it would be the first time I would pass a maths-related exam. Yet I was very surprised that I scored an A1 for that exam. This helped to me believe in myself as I maintained that grade for the rest of my secondary school life. Thank you Teacher Marcus for your support and wonderful teaching!

Nathan Thiam
Appreciate your update, Teacher Marcus. Emilia told me she thoroughly enjoyed your lessons and that she understands them. Thank you for your kindness and support towards her and her classmates. She recently got her A Math WA1 result • 21/30. A hard paper, we heard but she managed quite all right. Thank you

Parent of Emilia Syahada Leet
I've did quite well for my Physics SA2 and I got second in class for both Math and Physics which is actually second in the school because my class is the Triple Science class. I managed all this with the help of Mind Stretcher's lessons.

Li Long Guang
Mrs Tang is a very engaging and kind teacher towards her students. She actually supports me a lot and help me in my academic pathway for the past two years and also serve as someone to talk to when in need. She also gives great suggestions on how to improve my academic studies.

Zhang Shawn
The fun experiments we get to do and the chance to discuss questions with my friends in class makes the whole learning journey in Sec 3 Chemistry more fun & interesting

Denise Lim
I have been getting A’s for my Chemistry throughout this year for my school exams, I am really happy about it! My teacher Mrs Tang’s notes gave me more information on certain topics and benefitted me alot.

Ang Yu Han Natalie
I would like to thank Mrs Tan, who is my Mathematics teacher in Central Campus, for also teaching me tips and skills on how to solve well for Mathematics. She taught us a lot of tips on how to make logical sense on solving a question.

Wayne Ngian
Glad Shannon has joined your group at sec 3 then... she has benefited tremendously under your charge. I still remember when Shannon failed math in Sec 2 term 3. But because she wanted to be eligible for A-Maths so badly she worked hard to pull up her results. Glad you had given her much encouragement to pursue her interest. She has benefited tremendously under your charge.

Parent of Wong En Xi Shannon
Teacher Shannel is very dedicated and enthusiastic to help my son regardless if it is mindstretcher or school’ maths problems that my son has, including Amaths which she is not teaching.. she response to maths questions on whatsapp quite quickly and enthusiastically.

Parent of Koh Zi Xuan
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.

Low Yuxian Florence
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
My A.Maths teacher, Mr Marcus, he is also a very charismatic teacher that teaches in an animated fashion and I find that very funny and it makes me more concentrated in class. He actually goes the extra mile to provide lesson materials via Youtube that we can watch at our own time, own target and at home, before he actually teaches the concepts, so we can have a better conceptual understanding.

Li Long Guang
The Sec 3 A.Maths lessons have helped improve my answering technique for questions which has actually helped me improve my grades from a 'B4' to an 'A2'.

Cheryl Low
Our Sec 3 A-Maths tutor, Mr Ian Kwok, is very patient with our class despite us complaining and being very confused with the topic. He takes time to go through the notes and the questions and he makes sure that we understand most of the topic before moving on. He's also very encouraging and urges us to do better and not to give up. Thank you for spurring us on and encouraging us!

Randall Risharn
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

Ng Min Jun Leon
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!

Parent of Tjipto Ruby
I find Mr Chew very caring. He cares about our well being and tries his best to help us when he thinks we need it. Throughout my 2 years of being in his class, i realised that my grades have been improving, because of the help given by mr chew. His technique of teaching is very useful and the tips that he has given me helped me alot. He knows how to keep the class entertained but quiet, hence many of us are able to focus well in his class. He is very fun to talk to, and i can tell he is very enthusiatic about science. He always goes an extra mile to help us improve, i am very appreciative of his efforts. He cheers us up and motivates me whenever i dont do well, and he makes me feel better. I look forward to attending his classes every week. Thank you mr chew for everything you've done for us!

Ng Kai Ning
I think because of Mind Stretcher I was able to be one step ahead of my other classmates for Science When they didn't understand a certain topic, I was able to explain it to them.

Ashley Lim
Just got my SA2 results back, I scored 91/100 for my Science paper, thank you for teaching me well teacher! I have not gotten such a high score before and it certainly made my parents happy.

Mohamad Harith Muqri Bin Mohamad Zaifar
Thank you Mr Chew, your efforts have been reflected as her marks... She loves your class and in fact she keeps her fingers crossed for you to be her Science teacher for the whole of Secondary schooling... 😁

Parent of Zaheer Abbas Nashwa Shanum
Mr Praga. What a teacher. He teaches with sheer commitment and leads the class with honour and humility. He is like the human version of google but more interactive and helps us when we are struggling and praises us when we succeed. Helps us by making us write notes for every worksheet. He is so good at that I got a 20%grade improvement.

Pennabadi Rohith Reddy
Mr Praga, thank you for teaching me Science as I have improved tremendously after your teaching. It was always hard for me to score in Science and I could not get an A1 no matter how hard I tried. After attending your lessons, I managed to score full marks for my Science WA3 and it's all thanks to you. Besides that, you are very approachable and I am not afraid to ask you any questions I have, different from how I feel when asking questions to my school teachers. Moreover, you go the extra mile by making your own notes for us which are much shorter than the ones provided, making it easier for us to refer when attempting the questions. You are the only teacher that have done that for students throughout all my years in MS and I appreciate every bit of your effort. One more thing, I used to detest Science as I could never understand anything that was taught but after that short period when you taught me, I started to spark an interest in Science and it is now one of my favourite subjects. You are truly one of the best teachers that have taught me in MS and honestly the best Science teacher. I really hope you can teach me Science next year and I will continue to do my best. 🙂🙃

Clarissa Lim En Ning
Hi Teacher James, Badrul here. I am Rania's dad. I am not sure if Rania updated you but for her latest Science SA, she got 27.5/40. She was one of the top 5 in class. We see this as a positive improvement. Thank you Teacher James!

Parent of Mairania Salama Putri
Good evening Teacher Mavis this is Yuxuan's mom! He enjoys your lessons and finds them beneficial for his english, As a parent I would like to express my gratitude to you for being so responsible and patient with kids. Yuxuan is blessed to have you as his teacher.

Parent of Liu Yuxuan
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!

Parent of Moe Thu Kha
Dear Teacher, Thank you so much for coaching Jencine through Secondary 1 English. She is coping well with Maths and Science but told me that she has been struggling with her English. Thank you for your help!

Parent of Ou Wen Ying Jencine
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. :)

Ng Zi Xuan Stacia
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!

Belle Chong
Hong Xiang has shown improvement in his Chinese comprehension by applying the skills he learned from the centre's teacher (Dr Wang). He is also more confident in solving and answering these questions. He is more committed to mastering the subject.

Parent of Ng Hong Xiang
Hi teacher this is Quintus. I just finished my math PSLE. This year's paper was easier than 2021 PSLE so I think I can score AL 3 or above. Just wanted to thank you for everything you have done for me.

Heng Quintus
I would like to take this opportunity to express my heartfelt thanks to Mr Yan who has been teaching my son Math (high achiever) at your Clementi branch centre. My son had relate, he is patience, experience and dedicate to each of his classmates including himself during each lesson. Mr Yan was also able to spot questions ahead of his recent SA1 exam. He would also make conscious efforts to update me after each lesson on my son’s progress. Would highly recommend Mr Yan to my friends who are in need of looking for a good Math teacher.

Parent of Wah Wen Hu Addison
In addition, my Mindstretcher maths teacher always believed in me and she knew that I was capable of getting good score in mathematics. However I was weak in maths. Once again with my determination and my Mind Stretcher teacher's support, I scored AL2 in mathematics in PSLE.

Abdulla Arshad Ahmad
Dear Mr Ang, I got an A* for Maths in the PSLE. Thanks for your encouraging words and guidance. Loved being part of your Primary 6 Maths class Thanks and Regards, TARUN

We Would like to express our sincere thanks to Ms Rozi who taught our son Justin Lo High Achiever English @ East Campus MS.

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.

Harini Sree
