I was tutored by Joel from 2015 to 2017, during which I was taught Maths, Chemistry as well as Economics.
In 2015, when Joel started tutoring me, I remember how academically weak I was. I had a weak foundation in both Mathematics as well as the Sciences and on top of that, I also possessed a poor learning attitude; whereby I lacked motivation and discipline which caused me to lag behind my peers in school. However, things took a drastic turn when Joel started mentoring me and I’m glad to say that it was most definitely a positive change.
His friendly and bubbly nature made communication easier and his non-judgemental approach created a conducive and healthy environment for me to learn and absorb the most. I was never afraid to clarify my doubts or ask questions. His personal interest and passion in the subjects he taught catalysed the same interest in me. I was motivated to work harder in school and started adopting good studying habits, some of which were drawn from the advice Joel had shared with me.
Joel is extremely dedicated to his students; he always goes out of his way to check up on us
and goes the extra mile to help us. He took a personal concern towards my grades and performance in school. I can safely say that without Joel, I would not have achieved 9 points in my O level Examinations. I will forever be indebted to him for propelling me forward and helping me to realise my own potential. For someone who was getting a bunch of Cs and Ds for internal school examinations, even dreaming of getting 9 points for O levels may have seemed to be an impossible and unrealistic goal. But Joel never gave up on me or saw me as a failure that was beyond any help. He didn’t just teach me for the sake of it. He genuinely wanted me to succeed and was there throughout my journey.
Anyone who has the great fortune of being tutored by Joel in math and science truly in good hands.
