Dear Dr James Li,

Both Raphael & I would like to express our heartiest gratitude to GreatMinds as it help us to address our immediate concerns respectively. For Raphael, it was about finding the right teacher-mentor to guide him on the strategic approach to analyzing and refining his logical thinking process skills for both Mathematics & Science.

As for me, sourcing for a good Mathematics & Science teacher has always been my top priority, since Raphael is in Primary 5 this year. My intentions then was to enlist the aid of experienced & qualified teachers to help him strengthened his weaker topics for both subjects; at the same time, prepared him for his Primary 6, PSLE examination next year.

It is with good grace that I found both attributes in GreatMinds.

As a matter of fact, Raphael only started his tuition with GreatMinds in late August 2011, just 2 weeks or so before his CA2. As I monitor his progress, I can see some good improvement after those few lessons. He scored 86.5 for Mathematics, an improvement of 16 marks from his SA1; while for Science, he scored 70 as compared to 65 for SA1.

Not a big leap, at least, it is a good start to something bigger for him.

Through my conversation with my son Raphael, his feedback is that he is often exposed to different methodologies used to analyze and tackle Mathematics questions, as well as small scale science experiments being conducted to further illustrate the concepts taught in school.

You see, most students who had tuitions often have some general understanding of the concepts and are equipped with sufficient knowledge of the subjects taught in school. However, more often than not, they are unable to score during examination. They either achieve mediocre or above average results, not something that they desired.

What they lack is the processing skills on how best to approach the questions, analysis and techniques to answering those questions!

Interestingly, I found these methodologies being taught in GreatMinds.

I am grateful that both Raphael and I are a part of GreatMinds teachers-parents-student collaborational effort to strive towards achieving startling PSLE results.

Thank You.
