TSV provides a conducive environment for students to learn in, apart from the smaller class size that allows students to focus more, they also provide many resources like cheat sheets and topical worksheets with difficult questions to practice. Ms Sonia is very supportive of all her students hence after joining TSV, I have become more confident in math and also improved a lot!

The dedication and effort put into making teaching fun will definitely not disappoint you

Lynelle Ho, 16 [Batch 2022]
A Math: B3

TSV managed to make A-math less daunting for me. With the help of the teachers there, I was able to understand the concepts easily and pass my A-math in O-levels. The teachers are very patient with a slow person like me, so all the support was very reassuring. The TSV portal was very helpful, as there were many additional worksheets to do for extra practice. I was able to rewatch some of the online lessons to further strengthen my understanding of the concepts during the COVID period. Lastly, I really love how aesthetically pleasing the worksheets are. I had fun looking through them during revisions and seeing the cute characters that made studying math much better. The dedication and effort put into making teaching fun will definitely not disappoint you!!

Before TSV,  I was struggling with math throughout secondary one, as the transition from primary to secondary school was a huge challenge for me. I started off as someone having a weak foundation in mathematics and have been consistently failing in school. However, after joining TSV, I could see my grades improve bit by bit under Ms Sonia’s guidance. Not only that, Ms Sonia is also a patient and understanding teacher who is willing to help me out when I’m facing difficulties with school work too! In all, TSV has boosted my confidence in mathematics and I was able to secure a pfp position for N levels .❤️❤️

I joined TSV for the first time for the holiday programme when I was in sec 2, and I ended up getting both A1s for A math and  E math for the first exam of secondary 3! Now that I’ve graduated from secondary school, I am proud to say that I have achieved my desired grades with the help of ms Sonia! Ms Sonia’s teaching style is extremely suitable for all kinds of students, and her patience when teaching is truly exceptional. I remember being at the edge of giving up on mathematics, but she helped me gain confidence in the subject and guided me towards good grades in no time 🙂 Ms Sonia never stresses her students out and instead reassures them with comforting and encouraging words, allowing students to learn effectively at their own pace. I am very thankful towards Ms Sonia and TSV and I would definitely recommend her classes to everyone!

The learning materials and notes are also simple to understand and incredibly useful.

Chan Shin Ler, 16 [Batch 2022]
E Math: A2

The Sequoia Vision has allowed me to grow (like a sequoia tree) and learn better thanks to the teachers, learning materials and flexible timings. The center is conducive and favourable for classes as well as revision (many thanks to the beanbags and soft toys). The learning materials and notes are also simple to understand and incredibly useful. There is also a fantastic cheat sheet provided that compiles all the formulas. It also gives an overview of each chapter which is useful for the introduction to a new chapter or quick and easy revision. The questions are also challenging yet helpful when learning as it gives a good insight into how the questions are likely to appear in exams. Most importantly, the teachers have been patient, understanding and enthusiastic during my time there. Despite my repeated failures when attempting questions and low scores during exams, Ms Sonia has never failed to show her continuous and endless support and encouragement towards me. I highly recommend The Sequoia Vision as a trustable math tutor as I wholeheartedly believe that the time spent there will not go to waste (scouts honour).

I jumped from E8 in my mid-year exams to an A2 in ‘O’ Levels!

Megan Khoo, 16 [Batch 2022]
E Math: A2

For my mid-year exam in May, I got an E8 for e-math. I remembered a friend who had improved a lot in math and asked for tutor recommendations. They were very confident that their tutor would be able to help, and I couldn’t agree more! I joined TSV in June, and I understood the content better after attending the first class. I was weak in maths when I joined, but the teachers explained the content thoroughly and patiently. When I forgot a thing or two, I never hesitated to clarify a query with them again. They are very friendly and approachable, genuinely want to help, and want the students to do well. With consistent effort and teacher guidance, I jumped from E8 in my mid-year exams to an A2 in ‘O’ Levels! The teachers at TSV played a big part in giving me the confidence, motivation and assurance that I could do well, and they were right! I’ll forever be grateful and lucky that I met such excellent teachers at TSV.

TSV has provided a nurturing and supportive environment to elevate my skills in the area of mathematics. It has multitude of resources, which cover a wide range of questions, that could be used at my disposal and could specifically aid me in my weaker topics. Not only are the teachers patient in imparting their knowledge to the students, but they also care for the students’ well-being by giving us breaks in between our lessons to avoid burn-out. Furthermore, it has a 24/7 WhatsApp helpline to message if I face any challenging questions when doing practices at home/in school. They are efficient and quick to answer and they will emphasise the right angle to tackle the question that I ask. I have become more confident when doing math and have improved leaps and bounds in TSV—— definitely recommend this tuition

TSV has provided me with many resources to help with my learning! It encourages students to ask questions if in doubt due to the small class size and provides extra consultation if necessary. I previously struggled with amath due to my weak foundation but with Ms Sonia Tan’s guidance and lessons, I grasped the concepts and was able to ace my o levels. Recommend attending this centre if you need help in o-level mathematics!

TSV helped me very much since I joined in June 2021, when I failed my mid-terms badly. Ms Sonia always patiently explains complicated questions to me and gives appropriate encouragement when I got a question right and that really motivated me. I went for consultations at TSV and they immensely helped me improve my grades after I was given papers to do and revise topics that I was not that good at. I took my o levels in 2022. I had scored a B4 in prelims and because of TSV, I manage to jump 2 grades, scoring an A2 in O-levels. Thank you TSV!

From F9 to A1 in less than 4 months is really unbelievable

Ruben Chan, 16 [Batch 2022]
A Math: A1
E Math: A1

Before going to TSV, I was getting an F9 for A math and was on the edge of giving up this subject. I tried finding many A math tuition centres and many told me it’s too late to start. However, TSV still accepted me in June – just 4 months before O levels.

Ms Sonia and Ms iris really motivated me and pushed me beyond my limits. I was given many school papers to practice. I remember I did really poorly for my prelim A math paper 1, and I went to seek help after to prepare for my paper 2. The resources provided were on point, and it really helped my paper 2! I eventually passed my A-math in prelims!

Fast forward to O levels, I managed to score A1 for both A and E math. From F9 to A1 in less than 4 months is really unbelievable, and I’m really thankful to TSV for helping me so much!

I joined TSV at the end of 2019 after doing badly for E-math in secondary 2. During the holiday programme, Ms. Tan was extremely encouraging and patient with me building up my confidence. I was always afraid of math but with her guidance, I built a good foundation and improved. Throughout secondary 3, my grades got better, from Cs to As in both A-math and E-math. Ms. Tan puts in the extra effort to get to know every single student and forms a close relationship with them. Always looking forward to her engaging and well-crafted lessons. I can’t put into words how thankful I am for her support and constant push. Thank you ❤️

TSV played a big role in achieving A1s!

Dylan Tang, 16 [Batch 2021]
A Math: A1
E Math: A1

Before I attended tuition here, I had no interest in mathematics and got a B in my end-of-year exams. The teacher is patient, as when she explains the various questions and concepts to students, she often repeats her explanations until all students understand them. After attending these engaging lessons for almost 2 years, my mathematics improved drastically, with me mostly scoring A1s in the following maths exams. It certainly played a big role in helping me achieve these scores. Additionally, the classroom environment is pleasant, as violence is rare in the classroom.

 

The holiday lessons help to provide a head start for the new school year or semester, and I am able to complete assignments and do tests more easily as I am already familiar with the content.

During my 4 years with TSV, I enjoyed my classes and reaped a lot from them as well. Not only do they curate detailed and visually aesthetic notes, but lessons are also always interactive, making learning math fun and easy. The teachers are also very patient in explaining questions and solutions, and you can really see the effort they put in to make students feel at ease when learning math! Besides, the teachers motivate and are very encouraging to their students in every way you can imagine. TSV really helped me pick up my interest in math as I find math questions becoming easier and easier whenever I attempt them. Really thankful to teacher Sonia for being so inspiring, and TSV on whole for teaching me so much ! ☺️ I attended the Biology lessons from teacher yan jun and I am really surprised how good of a teacher she is !! She made learning biology look so easy and gave detailed explanations whenever we are unsure of anything. This motivated me to work harder on biology and I jumped from an F9 to B4 with the help of her classes! The biology cheatsheets helped tremendously, especially during o levels, it helps visual learners like me a lot as there are lots of hand-drawn diagrams to help students understand better, and it’s just like a mini textbook but lighter! Teacher Yan jun will take the time to go through each topic with you and the key concepts you are required to know, so you are sure of what you need to know! Never thought I would like biology so much until I received classes from TSV!

TSV helped me to grasp intimidating A Math concepts very easily through continuous practice using their well-thought-out math worksheets. The unique cheat sheet booklet has also benefitted me greatly as it gives me a complete overview of the subject. This booklet will indeed come in handy during revision for examinations.

Encouragement enabled me to excel in Math

Ow Yee Wai, 16 [Batch 2021]
A Math: C6 [Grade before TSV: F9]
E Math: B4 [Grade before TSV: F9]

Before I found TSV, I was failing Math terribly in school with an F9 grade throughout secondary two. TSV is unlike the other Math tuitions which I had joined previously. Ms. Sonia has quickly proven to me that I could put my trust in her with my Mathematics with her incredibly fast mental calculations and how she is able to spot my mistakes in my Mathematics solutions quickly too. Ms. Sonia has never given up on me despite my slow progress, instead, she always encouraged me by word of mouth, letters, and treats. She is approachable and forges close relationships with her students. She would go on the extra mile to get to know her students. With Ms. Sonia’s patient guidance and coaching, I achieved a B4 from an F9 in my Emath just within 3 months! I passed my Amath O levels from a never passing streak in school too! I would highly recommend TSV to all my peers and juniors!

Scoring B3 for O-levels from F9!

Albee Chai Buo Yin, 16 [Batch 2021]
E Math: A1 [Grade before TSV: F9]

I always failed math and did not have any hope. I joined near the end of Secondary 3, desperate as o-levels were close, and all the previous tuitions I had tried did not improve my grades nor allow me to understand the topics. Ms. Sonia has taught me very well, and her explanations were elaborate and easy to understand. It completely changed my opinion on math as I came in with F9s and finished o-levels with a B3 — an improvement of 6 grades.

During my two years at TSV, I was able to see an immediate increase in my grades in a span of 2 months, from C6 to B4 in Amath and scoring A1 for a-math for subsequent exams. Ms. Tan’s teaching methods were very effective and took the time to ensure that our foundation in Amath was good before moving on with content. The materials provided at TSV were extremely helpful for revision, such as the numerous practice papers and TSV quick revision notes as it was easy to digest and allowed me to grasp the concepts easily. Overall, the time spent at TSV was fruitful and I am happy with the results that I have seen after attending lessons at TSV!

Before I came to this tuition I got a D7 for math but TSV helped me a lot and taught me patiently. TSV tutors even went through lower secondary topics for me and helped me improve my algebra. For my o-levels, I got a B3! I was able to improve by many grades due to her so I am grateful for her!

Ms. Sonia is a really kind, patient, and encouraging teacher! I used to always get an F9 for math in school and did not have any confidence in myself for math. I started going for classes at TSV around the start of my sec 4 years and with the help of Ms. Sonia, I slowly gained confidence back and my grades got better. I also really love the study environment at TSV! Not only that, Ms. Sonia looks out for every student to ensure that they have understood everything in class. After one year at TSV, I have finally passed my math for o-levels! I am really grateful to have studied in TSV, and I wish those who are taking o-levels this year to not give up!

When I first joined TSV, my result was f9 for a-math and e8 for e-math, however, after Ms. Tan’s patient guidance, I slowly started to understand the concepts of the topics. Before our o levels, Ms tan even allowed us to go to the center to have a consultation with her before our exams which gave me even more confidence as I have clarified my doubts the day before and am clear on what to do for my exams. Amath was very boring at the start for me as I did not understand anything, however, ms tan slowly taught me to step by step how to do the questions and I finally improved from e8 in prelims to b4 in o levels!

Improvement on A-math and Biology

A-math: A2 [Grade before TSV: F9]
Biology: B3 [Grade before TSV: C6]

Before coming to TSV, I scored terribly for both A and E math and failed. However, change slowly occurred when I came to TSV and I suddenly saw slow but encouraging improvements in my grades. Amath in particular was the slowest where it took me a year just to jump from an F9 to A2 in O Levels. This was only made possible with piles of worksheets and of course my own efforts! Biology was actually a subject of interest for me but school results never showed it. That’s cos I have been failing it until Sec 4 mid-years when I just passed with a C6. With TSV’s help, I was able to make steady improvements from C6 to B3 in O Levels (phew)!

Since I was young, I disliked numbers. Not exactly sure why, even up to now, but they just didn’t make sense to me. However, with Ms. Tan’s passion and patience, I managed to see the light in the areas of math. My math started improving a lot. Even though I didn’t get my desired grades at O levels, I’m still very happy at where I am today… and it’s all thanks to my friends and teachers in school, as well as Ms. Tan and my friends here in TSV.

She has been very helpful and answers all my questions when I text her. She also printed a lot of extra math papers and topical revision worksheets to help me with my weaker topics. She will always try her best to answer me in a way I am able to understand. She also made detailed notes for every topic which really helped. I am able to get A1 for both my subjects thanks to Ms Sonia.

‘Ms Sonia started teaching me after my mid-year exam in secondary 3. I often fail my math and I was really upset because i thought I would not have any chance to score an A for the subject. Although I did not have any motivation to study the subject, my math results have improved since, and I still managed to get a C5 at the end of the year. Ms Sonia puts in a lot of effort in making materials for us and give me small tests to make sure that I understood what she taught. She helped me built a strong math foundation, which helps me understand math concepts quickly. She also replies to my messages promptly regardless of how busy she is. She also encourage me before every tests and never once showed her disappointments even if I did not do well in my tests. I’m very grateful to be taught by Ms Sonia and I really want to thank her for all her hard work and patience. She may be young, but she really teaches with her heart.”

Ms Tan has been with me since the very start in sec 1, she was patient with me through my ups and downs and didn’t give up on me even when I gave up on myself. She fully supported, encouraged and inspired me to work even harder and to believe in myself more. She’s flawlessly skilled in teaching and that makes her an outstanding teacher that’s willing to go beyond the extra mile. She makes me feel really comfortable to do more math questions with much more confidence over time. I’m extremely grateful beyond words.

Ms Tan has really helped me improve my A math a lot. Before attending her classes, I had a really hard time trying to grasp the concepts and formulae as I couldn’t understand what was taught. But after attending Ms Tan’s classes, she was able to help me find out my mistakes and correct me. She took the time to slowly explain what was wrong even though I would repeat the same mistake again. Within the short time that I was with her, I was able to drastically improve my results from a F9 to an A2 for my O level.  She has really helped make A math a more interesting enjoyable subject for me.

I’ve always hated math but I did it!

Allanis Sng, 19 [Batch 2017]
O level Results: A math: A2 E math: A2

Math to me, was the bane of my existence. I’ve always hated math. I panicked every math lesson and my mental health was taking a turn for the worse.  Every time I think that I’ve grasped the basic concept of math, I get really really lost after that. I kept doubting and questioning my abilities.  A math was one of the biggest hurdle in my life.  I never payed attention in class, kept talking to my friends or was always doodling. For the first semester every quiz grade was an E8 or F9.  I was grasping at ends; had no idea what I could do. Thankfully, I was given the chance to enter tuition. It wasn’t easy to convince my mom to let me have tuition and neither was it easy having to sit through long long hours of math lessons HAHA.  But I did it and here I am, breathing and alive. It doesn’t get any easier but you’ll one day gain the strength to pull through and climb over this hurdle and another. I think all you need is a little courage to try; try to give your all and who knows where that will bring you

Math remains one of my best subjects today

Zou Le Yang, 18 [Batch 2018]
O level Results: A Math A2 [from E8 in 9 months]

Before I started tuition for mathematics, it was just another subject for me, something I am half decent at, not wholly skilled in and definitely lacking practice with.  I had gotten maths tuition at my parents’ wishes, and was certainly reluctant for it. But after a while, I began to relish in the simplicity of the subject, as ironic as that may sound. Compared to subjects like literature or history, maths had a clear, definite answer which was very refreshing and enjoyable. Although my life path makes most “science” subjects irrelevant, maths remains one of my best subjects today, and I have the tuition I had gotten to thank for it.

Elita Eso, 18 [Batch 2018]
O level Results: A Math A2, E Math A2

My journey from loving math but not performing that well to loving math and performing exceptionally well was a very rough one indeed. My math was always my strongest subject ever since primary school but in sec 3 when I suddenly started getting Cs and Bs, my whole self esteem just dropped because I was doing so badly (L1R5 of 28) I was so shocked, this was the worst I ever performed. I always told myself I didn’t need help for math cause I’m good at it but at that point I knew something had to be done. I never really thought much of it as I never had a good experience with tuition as most of them barely helped. So on my first lesson I was very skeptical and was still unsure how the outcome may turn out. However not only was I assured that I was going to improve on the very first lesson, I had a great time. Time passed by so fast. I had never looked forward to tuition as I did for seqouia’s tuition before. This happened every lesson. I had a lot of fun and my love for the subject grew so much.

By mid years in sec 4 I was topping the class for both A math and E math. I was elated and just kept pushing my self to do better. Nearing the prelims, I started getting full marks and not only that but my other subjects started improving as well and I was doing very well. I would credit that all to Ms Shulin as I never would have been able to plan my time as well without her advice and help.  At the end of the day I got an A1 for emath and an A2 for amath and my L1R5 was 9. Although I wanted an A1 for amath as well I knew I never could have made it this far without Ms Shulin. I really enjoyed every single lesson and really loved the subject more that anything. The journey was stressful and tough but it’s a journey I’ll look back on and be proud of. Now I’m in NYJC hoping for the day sequoia takes A’level math HAHAH but nonetheless with Shulin’s tips and advices I’m still doing well in math and I have found that newfound love in math and the passion to do well that I never had before. All I can say is thanks for being the change in my secondary school journey. I’ll always remember you !:(

The well-crafted worksheets that encompass notes and past exam questions that help prepare a student for a complete comprehension of each topic to the helpful cheat sheets and engaging lessons is what helped me improve my grades.

Ever since primary three, I have never passed math. Before getting to know about sequoia vision, I had no hope of passing mathematics, but after knowing sequoia vision, my tuition teacher encouraged me and gave me the hope that I’ve lost. Not only just encouraging, but she put in effort to give me worksheets and go through all sums that I was confused about. In addition, she teached strategies in how to study smart. After all efforts and encouragement, I manage to improve from a “U” grade to a grade 3. My marks improved together with my confidence in Math

In my 13 years of education, I never once passed Math. Due to that, I was unable to enter schools despite doing well for other subjects. Math seemed to be my biggest hurdle that hindered my success.

However under Ms Sonia’s patient stewardship and guidance, I was motivated to study smarter and managed to pass math for the first time ever! She has never once gave up on me despite my poor grades, and always encouraged me whenever I felt like giving up on myself. She taught me that math was not just a subject that would teach me patience but a subject that would teach me how to tackle multiple problems.

Ms Sonia puts in a lot of effort in making materials for us and give me small tests to make sure that I understood what she taught. She helped me built a strong math foundation, which helps me understand math concepts quickly. She also replies to my messages promptly regardless of how busy she is. She also encourage me before every tests and never once showed her disappointments even if I did not do well in my tests.

Before coming to TSV, I scored terribly for both A and E math and failed. However, change slowly occurred when I came to TSV and I suddenly saw slow but encouraging improvements in my grades. Amath in particular was the slowest where it took me a year just to jump from an F9 to A2 in O Levels. This was only made possible with piles of worksheets and of course my own efforts! Biology was actually a subject of interest for me but school results never showed it. That’s cos I have been failing it until Sec 4 mid-years when I just passed with a C6. With TSV’s help, I was able to make steady improvements from C6 to B3 in O Levels (phew)!

It certainly played a big role in helping me achieve these scores. Additionally, the classroom environment is pleasant, as violence is rare in the classroom.

Furthermore, it has a 24/7 WhatsApp helpline to message if I face any challenging questions when doing practices at home/in school. They are efficient and quick to answer and they will emphasise the right angle to tackle the question that I ask.

However, after joining TSV, I could see my grades improve bit by bit under Ms Sonia’s guidance. Not only that, Ms Sonia is also a patient and understanding teacher who is willing to help me out when I’m facing difficulties with school work too! In all, TSV has boosted my confidence in mathematics and I was able to secure a pfp position for N levels .❤️❤️

The dedication and effort put into making teaching fun will definitely not disappoint you

Lynelle Ho, 16 [Batch 2022]
A Math: B3

TSV managed to make A-math less daunting for me. With the help of the teachers there, I was able to understand the concepts easily and pass my A-math in O-levels. The teachers are very patient with a slow person like me, so all the support was very reassuring. The TSV portal was very helpful, as there were many additional worksheets to do for extra practice. I was able to rewatch some of the online lessons to further strengthen my understanding of the concepts during the COVID period. Lastly, I really love how aesthetically pleasing the worksheets are. I had fun looking through them during revisions and seeing the cute characters that made studying math much better. The dedication and effort put into making teaching fun will definitely not disappoint you!!

TSV provides a conducive environment for students to learn in, apart from the smaller class size that allows students to focus more, they also provide many resources like cheat sheets and topical worksheets with difficult questions to practice. Ms Sonia is very supportive of all her students hence after joining TSV, I have become more confident in math and also improved a lot!

I started tuition 5 months before my O levels because I failed my mid-term examination for Additional Mathematics. Ms Sonia gave me the amount of exposure to Mathematics a student will do in 12 months, in just 4 months. She pushed me to reach my full potential. I’m really grateful for the detailed notes she gave and the concepts she helped me to understand. Other than this, she looked out for my mental health as I am someone who gets over stressed very easily. I wouldn’t have gotten A1 for both my subjects without her help. Thank you cher!

By mid years in sec 4 I was topping the class for both A math and E math

Elita Eso, 18 [Batch 2018]
O level Results: A Math A2, E Math A2

My journey from loving math but not performing that well to loving math and performing exceptionally well was a very rough one indeed. My math was always my strongest subject ever since primary school but in sec 3 when I suddenly started getting Cs and Bs, my whole self esteem just dropped because I was doing so badly (L1R5 of 28) I was so shocked, this was the worst I ever performed. I always told myself I didn’t need help for math cause I’m good at it but at that point I knew something had to be done. I never really thought much of it as I never had a good experience with tuition as most of them barely helped. So on my first lesson I was very skeptical and was still unsure how the outcome may turn out. However not only was I assured that I was going to improve on the very first lesson, I had a great time. Time passed by so fast. I had never looked forward to tuition as I did for seqouia’s tuition before. This happened every lesson. I had a lot of fun and my love for the subject grew so much.

By mid years in sec 4 I was topping the class for both A math and E math. I was elated and just kept pushing my self to do better. Nearing the prelims, I started getting full marks and not only that but my other subjects started improving as well and I was doing very well. I would credit that all to Ms Shulin as I never would have been able to plan my time as well without her advice and help.  At the end of the day I got an A1 for emath and an A2 for amath and my L1R5 was 9. Although I wanted an A1 for amath as well I knew I never could have made it this far without Ms Shulin. I really enjoyed every single lesson and really loved the subject more that anything. The journey was stressful and tough but it’s a journey I’ll look back on and be proud of. Now I’m in NYJC hoping for the day sequoia takes A’level math HAHAH but nonetheless with Shulin’s tips and advices I’m still doing well in math and I have found that newfound love in math and the passion to do well that I never had before. All I can say is thanks for being the change in my secondary school journey. I’ll always remember you !:(

Math remains one of my best subjects today

Zou Le Yang, 18 [Batch 2018]
O level Results: A Math A2 [from E8 in 9 months]

Before I started tuition for mathematics, it was just another subject for me, something I am half decent at, not wholly skilled in and definitely lacking practice with.  I had gotten maths tuition at my parents’ wishes, and was certainly reluctant for it. But after a while, I began to relish in the simplicity of the subject, as ironic as that may sound. Compared to subjects like literature or history, maths had a clear, definite answer which was very refreshing and enjoyable. Although my life path makes most “science” subjects irrelevant, maths remains one of my best subjects today, and I have the tuition I had gotten to thank for it.

Ms Tan has really helped me improve my A math a lot. Before attending her classes, I had a really hard time trying to grasp the concepts and formulae as I couldn’t understand what was taught. But after attending Ms Tan’s classes, she was able to help me find out my mistakes and correct me. She took the time to slowly explain what was wrong even though I would repeat the same mistake again. Within the short time that I was with her, I was able to drastically improve my results from a F9 to an A2 for my O level.  She has really helped make A math a more interesting enjoyable subject for me.

When I first joined TSV, my result was f9 for a-math and e8 for e-math, however, after Ms. Tan’s patient guidance, I slowly started to understand the concepts of the topics. Before our o levels, Ms tan even allowed us to go to the center to have a consultation with her before our exams which gave me even more confidence as I have clarified my doubts the day before and am clear on what to do for my exams. Amath was very boring at the start for me as I did not understand anything, however, ms tan slowly taught me to step by step how to do the questions and I finally improved from e8 in prelims to b4 in o levels!

Ms. Sonia is a really kind, patient, and encouraging teacher! I used to always get an F9 for math in school and did not have any confidence in myself for math. I started going for classes at TSV around the start of my sec 4 years and with the help of Ms. Sonia, I slowly gained confidence back and my grades got better. I also really love the study environment at TSV! Not only that, Ms. Sonia looks out for every student to ensure that they have understood everything in class. After one year at TSV, I have finally passed my math for o-levels! I am really grateful to have studied in TSV, and I wish those who are taking o-levels this year to not give up!

O level Results: A math: A2 E math: A2

Math to me, was the bane of my existence. I’ve always hated math. I panicked every math lesson and my mental health was taking a turn for the worse.  Every time I think that I’ve grasped the basic concept of math, I get really really lost after that. I kept doubting and questioning my abilities.  A math was one of the biggest hurdle in my life.  I never payed attention in class, kept talking to my friends or was always doodling. For the first semester every quiz grade was an E8 or F9.  I was grasping at ends; had no idea what I could do. Thankfully, I was given the chance to enter tuition. It wasn’t easy to convince my mom to let me have tuition and neither was it easy having to sit through long long hours of math lessons HAHA.  But I did it and here I am, breathing and alive. It doesn’t get any easier but you’ll one day gain the strength to pull through and climb over this hurdle and another. I think all you need is a little courage to try; try to give your all and who knows where that will bring you

Before I found TSV, I was failing Math terribly in school with an F9 grade throughout secondary two. TSV is unlike the other Math tuitions which I had joined previously. Ms. Sonia has quickly proven to me that I could put my trust in her with my Mathematics with her incredibly fast mental calculations and how she is able to spot my mistakes in my Mathematics solutions quickly too. Ms. Sonia has never given up on me despite my slow progress, instead, she always encouraged me by word of mouth, letters, and treats. She is approachable and forges close relationships with her students. She would go on the extra mile to get to know her students. With Ms. Sonia’s patient guidance and coaching, I achieved a B4 from an F9 in my Emath just within 3 months! I passed my Amath O levels from a never passing streak in school too! I would highly recommend TSV to all my peers and juniors!

Because of my early struggles in math, I didn’t enjoy studying it but Ms. Sonia was able to change my mindset towards it by showing me that I am capable of doing well as I soon achieved better grades in 2 months.

The well-crafted worksheets that encompass notes and past exam questions that help prepare a student for a complete comprehension of each topic to the helpful cheat sheets and engaging lessons is what helped me improve my grades.

​“I used to really hate math to the extent that I procrastinate doing any math homework. In math classes, I will not pay attention because it was too boring for me. Ever since primary three, I have never passed math. Before getting to know about sequoia vision, I had no hope of passing mathematics, but after knowing sequoia vision, my tuition teacher encouraged me and gave me the hope that I’ve lost. Not only just encouraging, but she put in effort to give me worksheets and go through all sums that I was confused about. In addition, she teached strategies in how to study smart. After all efforts and encouragement, I manage to improve from a “U” grade to a grade 3. My marks improved together with my confidence in Math

The teachers are also very patient in explaining questions and solutions, and you can really see the effort they put in to make students feel at ease when learning math! Besides, the teachers motivate and are very encouraging to their students in every way you can imagine. TSV really helped me pick up my interest in math as I find math questions becoming easier and easier whenever I attempt them. Really thankful to teacher Sonia for being so inspiring, and TSV on whole for teaching me so much ! ☺️ I attended the Biology lessons from teacher yan jun and I am really surprised how good of a teacher she is !! She made learning biology look so easy and gave detailed explanations whenever we are unsure of anything. This motivated me to work harder on biology and I jumped from an F9 to B4 with the help of her classes! The biology cheatsheets helped tremendously, especially during o levels, it helps visual learners like me a lot as there are lots of hand-drawn diagrams to help students understand better, and it’s just like a mini textbook but lighter! Teacher Yan jun will take the time to go through each topic with you and the key concepts you are required to know, so you are sure of what you need to know! Never thought I would like biology so much until I received classes from TSV!

For my mid-year exam in May, I got an E8 for e-math. I remembered a friend who had improved a lot in math and asked for tutor recommendations. They were very confident that their tutor would be able to help, and I couldn’t agree more! I joined TSV in June, and I understood the content better after attending the first class. I was weak in maths when I joined, but the teachers explained the content thoroughly and patiently. When I forgot a thing or two, I never hesitated to clarify a query with them again. They are very friendly and approachable, genuinely want to help, and want the students to do well. With consistent effort and teacher guidance, I jumped from E8 in my mid-year exams to an A2 in ‘O’ Levels! The teachers at TSV played a big part in giving me the confidence, motivation and assurance that I could do well, and they were right! I’ll forever be grateful and lucky that I met such excellent teachers at TSV.

The learning materials and notes are also simple to understand and incredibly useful.

The Sequoia Vision has allowed me to grow (like a sequoia tree) and learn better thanks to the teachers, learning materials and flexible timings. The center is conducive and favourable for classes as well as revision (many thanks to the beanbags and soft toys). The learning materials and notes are also simple to understand and incredibly useful. There is also a fantastic cheat sheet provided that compiles all the formulas. It also gives an overview of each chapter which is useful for the introduction to a new chapter or quick and easy revision. The questions are also challenging yet helpful when learning as it gives a good insight into how the questions are likely to appear in exams. Most importantly, the teachers have been patient, understanding and enthusiastic during my time there. Despite my repeated failures when attempting questions and low scores during exams, Ms Sonia has never failed to show her continuous and endless support and encouragement towards me. I highly recommend The Sequoia Vision as a trustable math tutor as I wholeheartedly believe that the time spent there will not go to waste (scouts honour).
