Secondary 3

Secondary 3

The increased academic rigour in Upper Secondary is a main reason why many students struggle when they enter S3. They have to contend with the increased breadth, depth and scope of various subjects and have to elevate their linguistic skills (both written & spoken).

What our students & parents say about us

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!
