FAQ

1. Why should we choose you?

Our methodology WORKS.  Countless students have tried OTHER Biology tuition with other tuition centers or even 1:1 tuition with brand-name tutors before joining us.  However, they found out that these sessions were not suitable for various reasons.  Would you want to waste valuable time trying other centers, only to realise that you need other forms of help?

“Previously, I was scoring a U in my school examinations.  However after joining Ms Yap’s tuition, I have finally managed to clinch my A.”- Davian Milevaganam, Eunoia Junior College [click to view actual student testimonial]

“Before coming for her tuition, I was scoring a single digit and after going to her tuition, I was able to achieve the 89th percentile (in my school) for my Biology mid-year examinations.” – Low Sieu Xin, Temasek Junior College [click to view actual student testimonial]

Before joining Ms Yap’s biology tuition, I was scoring around 20th percentile in JC1.  After joining her tuition, I secured 75th percentile for my JC2 mid-year examinations. – Chong Tong Hui, Victoria Junior College [click to view actual student testimonial]

“Before I came to Ms Yap’s tuition, I was with Learners’ Lodge (another tuition centre offering Biology tuition).  I feel that the main difference between Learners’ Lodge, my school and Ms Yap is that Ms Yap provides notes that are a lot more detailed, so we learn a lot more than what is taught in school.  This is very important because I feel it will be very helpful for Paper 3 (Paper 3 includes long structured data-based questions) and this is what’s going to help me in the future. ” – Brian Woon Shao Tian, River Valley High School [click to view actual student testimonial]

” Before I came here (to Ms Yap’s tuition), I was studying on my own, and I was at a loss and I could not really understand what my school was teaching. I went for tuition with Mr Benjamin Yang (previously at Learner’s Lodge, another tuition centre) but the notes and questions given were too simple.  Afterwards, I came to Ms Yap’s class and her notes were very concise and clear.  The questions provided by Ms Yap were really challenging, which is good because they test my knowledge as well and whether I really understand the concept.  Ms Yap’s classes are fun and enjoyable, because she is really friendly and she really perks my interest in the topics and concepts overall.” – Jeslyn Tan, Eunoia Junior College [click to view actual student testimonial]

“I previously sought 1:1 tuition, but I did not learn much; because he used my own (school) notes to teach me, so I learnt almost nothing new.  On top of that, he used ten-year series (TYS) and used TYS answers to teach me- when I can just read off the notes myself.  Afterwards, I went to a tuition centre which provided notes that were too simple, and too much time was wasted in class watching videos.  On top of that, the questions and answers provided by that tuition centre lack detail- you don’t learn much at all because you can get the answers from your own (school) lecture notes. I went for Ms Yap’s tuition after going to that tuition centre, and Ms Yap’s tuition is really good.  You learn a lot, and her notes are well compiled.  On top of that, you get to apply the knowledge you have learnt almost immediately,  because Ms Yap makes students do practices in class immediately to internalise the knowledge, so that’s how you learn better.  My grades improved significantly and the questions that we did in class came out for my prelim exams, and I scored very well.” – Christabell Wang, Innova Junior College [click to view actual student testimonial]

“Prior to joining Ms Yap’s biology tuition, I actually sought out another biology tuition centre.  But unfortunately, that biology tuition centre wasn’t able to help me; because the lessons were very rushed and the materials they provided were lacking in the sense that they did not answer my questions”- Gabriel Kuah, ex- Yishun Junior College [click to view actual student testimonial]

Since we are covering much more in-depth than your school, more time will be needed for this content-heavy subject.

Although sessions are officially 3 hours, Ms Yap is known to conduct 6-hour group lessons at no extra cost, to help you wade through the voluminous content required for H2 Biology. ( The last we checked, no other tutor in the entire Singapore offers sessions this intense– let’s face it, who would be willing to do unpaid overtime? Well, we do! Why? Because we are passionate and geared towards helping YOU!)

“The longer tuition sessions are very useful for a learner like me, because Ms Yap’s tuition is a lot longer than school tutorials, so there is a lot more time to think and I get to try out a lot more questions as well.  Lastly, the questions that Ms Yap told us to watch out for, came out for (my) A levels- so yay, thank you Ms Yap!” – Poon Yi Lin, Hwa Chong Institution [click to view actual student testimonial]

2. Can you help? I am having trouble with application questions. I have difficulty applying the content to the answer the questions /memorizing keywords/ integrating all the inter-related concepts etc.

An absolute resounding yes- we definitely CAN, and will help you!

Our material matches that of the top 3 JCs ( and to an even greater detail than some of these top JCs).

You will be trained how to critically think, and be told which are the important parts to remember. Our notes will contain information not in your school notes, which are still being tested in the examinations.

You will be taught a special technique to  answer application questions.

“When I joined Ms Yap’s tuition, I learned a special technique on how to answer application questions, and with that I saw a vast improvement within a short time frame.  I jumped four grades from BT2s to Prelims, within one month.” – Tiffany Chin, Saint Andrew’s Junior College [click to view actual student testimonial]

“Ms Yap taught me a special technique that helped me to answer questions effectively, and a way to apply my knowledge so that I can score better.  Ms Yap is very detailed and meticulous; and her notes are very accurate and concise, which helps to plug in gaps in my knowledge and helps me to understand difficult and abstract concepts better. ” – Clarice Wong, Raffles Institution [click to view actual student testimonial]

(We guarantee our material will be BETTER than your school notes. The common objective here is that our notes are designed in a way to help you SAVE time during preparation for the examinations, to get you your DESIRED grades.)

“My school notes are sometimes quite disorganised and not very good for memorization.   Ms Yap’s notes really benefit me because she makes sure to condense them into very concise and precise language, and she highlights and underlines the keywords such that I’m better able to spot them and to memorise them easily. So basically, she has done a lot of the thinking for me already, and basically what I have to do is to mostly just memorize.  “- Lydia Ng, Hwa Chong Institution  [click to view actual student testimonial]

“Ms Yap provides all the different notes such as common mistakes and her own summary which makes my learning process easier.  Compared to my school’s notes, her notes are much more detailed. ” Reiko Lim, Yishun Junior College [click to view actual student testimonial]

3. How do you keep abreast of the MOE syllabus and ensure your answers are recognized by SEAB-Cambridge GCE ‘A’ Level examinations board?

You may (hopefully) be aware by now, that the answers released by certain publishers and schools are not in line with the assessment objectives of the SEAB-Cambridge GCE ‘A’ Level examinations board.  The Cambridge examiners may not award marks in the same way that your school teachers do.

We have been analysing and fine-tuning our answer scheme against the official Singapore-Cambridge GCE ‘A’ Level Examiner’s report, throughout the years.

All our graduating students will also receive a copy of the Singapore-Cambridge GCE ‘A’ Level Examiner’s report.

4. How do your students fare for the A level every year?

Close to 9 out of 10 of our students score an A at the A level ( *for students who have been with us since JC1). This is more than double the national average of 40%.

We have managed to consistently maintain this high  90 % Grade A  achieved by our students (for students who have been with us since JC1) since 2013. (Information accurate as at 2018).

Please refer to this page for more details and evidence of past students’ results. (Whenever possible, we upload the actual source e.g. Students’ certificates, written and video testimonials, google reviews etc. You can be sure you are hearing from our actual students, rather than relying on flimsy phone screenshots which can be doctored.)

P/S: If you join later on and have missed our JC1 classes, don’t fret ( past lessons and material are available for purchase)!

5. Do you offer trial lessons?

We do not offer trial lessons. We are of the view that a student will not be able to appreciate the benefits of our intensive programme in just one lesson.

6. How do you ensure the quality of each lesson?

All lessons are taught by Ms Yap personally. We do not engage other tutors (whose style and pace may be different), just to have a higher profit margin. This ensures consistency of lessons.

All weekly lessons are carefully planned out, with specific learning objectives and learning outcomes to be met.

7. Is it possible for me to join at any time of the year?

Yes. However, due to limited seats, fees may be adjusted upwards as classes fill up. Students who enroll earlier will enjoy the lower rate throughout the year.
