“He got 63. Not exceptional but a big improvement from previous exams and a boost to his confidence. Unfortunately we had made the mistake of not starting him on tuition much earlier last year so he’s only caught up with his fundamentals recently. At the end of the day the score is not as important as him regaining his belief that he can do well and succeed with hard work. He worked quite hard this time around and there was a big improvement in all his subjects...

Thank you for your centre’s help and support.”

“Thanks so much for pulling me out of the Physics dumps and honestly you’re the best teacher I could ever ask for. I’ve never written a single teacher’s day card in my life but you’re like the most passionate and dedicated person ever so I had to write one. I am really thankful for all the physics marathon 4 hour long sessions you had with us, and all the late night you spent preparing the materials or answering our 1 am study questions. It kinda felt as if you were mugging with us the whole way. And also, I’m really grateful for all the time you may have sacrifice with yourself/your family to help us.

“However, with Ms Hong’s dedicated teaching and detailed lesson plan, I was able to understand the Physics concepts with more ease."

 

“I recently joined The Physics Council this year. Before I joined The Physics Council, I hadn’t passed any of my Physics exams in my first year at Raffles Junior College. It was to the extent where I scored about 30 out of 120 for my promotion exam. However, with Ms Hong’s dedicated teaching and detailed lesson plan, I was able to understand the Physics concepts with more ease. Furthermore, I was given consistent practice during her lessons. As a result, I didn’t have to dedicate much time to Physics out of class. My learning was accelerated, and in a mere four months period, I was able to jump from a U grade in my Promos to a commendable B. Also, I was one of the most improved students, having doubled my grade "

"I enjoy the lessons not always being lecture-based, which makes it much simpler to grasp new formulas. The teachers are also always ready to clarify doubts 1 to 1.

"Ms Hong’s kindness, care and love throughout these sessions have made a big difference not only to my Physics results, but also nurtured me as a person to learn how to love a subject and work hard for it"

 

“I have always had a burning interest for physics from Secondary 1 to 2. However, the 3rd and 4th year doing physics was not as easy as I thought it would be. My grades had plummeted to D7 and this result continued with slight improvement throughout my years in Secondary 3 and 4. My Secondary 4 prelim results for Physics was D7. This was when I decided to engage a physics tutor to improve and push up my grades. I came across Ms Jasline Hong during this tough physics time and she indeed was an inspiration and motivation for me. Ms Hong was patient in guiding, explaining and teaching us the method of applying physics concepts to different questions. Ms Hong never failed to give us individual attention and focus, walking around, asking and helping us when we had difficulties.

Ms Hong’s love and knowledge for physics influenced me greatly. Ms Hong makes the effort to engage us during her lesson, encouraging participation and contribution from her students. Besides these, Ms Hong’s notes are very comprehensive and to the point, such that learning and understanding takes place easily. Also, her questions that she prepared for us, be it for MCQ or open-ended, has really helped me to better apply, as well as equip myself with the necessary physics skills to tackle the physics questions comfortably. Although I had a mere 11 lessons with Ms Hong, I managed to improve drastically from D7 to a B3. Ms Hong’s kindness, care and love throughout these sessions have made a big difference not only to my Physics results, but also nurtured me as a person to learn how to love a subject and work hard for it.”

Ms Hong is one of the most patient and dedicated teachers I have met and I am extremely fortunate to have been taught by her in my JC days. From a student who did poorly for Physics, scoring an E grade for my mid-year paper in JC1, I improved tremendously under her guidance and eventually scored an A grade in the A levels. Ms Hong is an approachable and responsible teacher whom her students can always look for when they are in doubt.

She conscientiously explains the concepts to us until we are able to fully understand, without getting impatient even if we are slow learners.

"Before having Ms Hong as my Physics tutor, I had little confidence in tackling Physics questions due to my poor grasp of the concepts. I used to solve Physics questions without full understanding, by simply throwing in equations and substituting numerical values. However, that changed upon having Ms Hong as my Physics tutor and under her guidance, I progressed from borderline passes in school examinations to an ‘A’ in Physics for A Levels. Ms Hong is very patient when it comes to explaining concepts and always makes sure that everyone understand completely before proceeding with the lesson.

She is also extremely approachable, which encourages you to ask any questions that you may have and clear your doubts. I have thoroughly enjoyed her classes and used to look forward to them every week. Ms Hong has high expectations of her students as she truly believes that everyone is capable of achieving their desired results as long as they are eager to learn and they put in the effort to do so. She is also never stingy with her words of encouragement. I’m sure every former and current students of Ms Hong can testify to the deep passion and unwavering dedication that she has for teaching. She is by far the best Physics tutor that I’ve had the privilege of having."
