Hi I am Davian from EJC. Previously, I had been getting a U in my school examinations. However, upon joining Ms Yap’s classes, I have finally been able to get my A.
I feel that what has helped me, is the great amount of questions that she has provided during classes.
Hi, I am Sieu Xin from TJC. Before coming to this tuition, I was not able to apply the content learnt in Biology to the questions in the school’s tutorial. I was lost due to the fast pace of the school lectures. After coming to Ms Yap’s tuition, I was able to better see links between the topics (which I was not able to before), and apply the content learned to the questions. Ms Yap is also a very conscientious teacher who tries to help me to the best of her ability. 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.
Hi, I am Brian. I am currently studying in River Valley High School and taking the Biology A-levels this year. 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. Ms Yap is really good- Ms Yap has taught me how to study Biology in a more efficient way, and her materials are geared towards helping students to do well in the exams. (Topped my class and achieved “A” grade for Biology in JC2 Preliminary examination)
Hi, I’m Lydia from Hwa Chong Institution. I just sat for my A level Biology paper today, and the questions from Ms Yap’s consolidated notes really did come out in my examination paper.
After attending Ms Yap’s tuition, I’ve improved by four grades in six months. Thank you!
Hi, I’m Lydia; and I’m from Hwa Chong Institution.
Prior to coming for Ms Yap’s tuition, one of the biggest issues I had with Biology was that my school’s lectures were way too fast for me to understand. I barely had enough time, to like even, take down notes; not even talking about trying to understand the material at the same time.
But Ms Yap’s tuition really benefitted me because she goes through each and every concept slowly; and after every concept, she makes sure to give me questions to consolidate my learning, and that I truly understand what has just been taught. While teaching, she also makes sure to ask questions, as well as to ask if I have kept up with what she is going through.
But not only so, my school doesn’t really have that many questions for us to try out; and during the short period of 1 hour during school tutorials, we can’t even cover all the questions that are given to us sometimes. But Ms Yap’s tuition makes sure that I am exposed to a much wider variety of questions, as well as to make sure that she solidifies my answering techniques. This means that she gives me way harder questions that are able to stretch my brain, so that I am better able to answer way harder questions during exams as well.
But not only so, my school notes are sometimes quite disorganised and not very good for memorization. They are good for background understanding, and for you to get to know the topic well though. But when it comes to memorisation and for preparing for exams, 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. And this really helps me in my time management for exams, because one of my biggest issues was that due to the fact what I had to think a lot during the exams, I was unable to finish the questions and this cost me a lot of marks. So when I came to Ms Yap’s tuition, I was better able to spot the keywords after exposure to the questions; so that during the exams, I didn’t have to think so much, and during those stressful exam conditions, I could better able apply what I have already learnt.
I would definitely highly recommend Ms Yap’s biology tuition for students who want to boost in their confidence in answering exam questions.
By the way, I have just sat for my A level Biology paper today, and the questions from Ms Yap’s consolidated notes did come out in my examination paper.
After attending Ms Yap’s Biology tuition, I’ve improved by four grades in six months. Thank you!
Hi, I am Clarice from Raffles Institution. Before coming to Ms Yap’s Biology tuition, I could not score for questions despite reading school notes multiple times. 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. I am more sure of myself now when doing questions, because she points out common application questions for us students.
Hi, I am Claresse from TPJC. Before I came for Ms Yap’s tuition, I was scoring a U for H2 Biology. But now after attending Ms Yap’s lessons, I understand the topics better. Ms Yap’s lessons are more comprehensive compared to my school’s lectures. Ms Yap’s way of teaching is way better than my school’s tutors. I have more confidence now in answering Biology questions.
Hi, I am Davian from Eunoia Junior College. I personally feel that Ms Yap’s lessons are very helpful to me, especially with the support system of online digital lessons. I have missed a couple of lessons previously, and she has released the digital lessons online which has allowed me to review at home what was being taught during the lesson and catch up on what my peers are doing in tuition, so I find that it is very useful.
Hi. I am Srikar from ACJC. I would recommend Ms Yap’s tuition to everyone because my grades have jumped ever since I’ve joined her tuition.
One of the challenges that I’ve faced before coming for Ms Yap’s tuition is, the lack of preparedness for the exams; not because I did not study, but because I did not know what to expect for the exam. Every time I would enter the exam hall, I would not know what to expect from the paper and what kind of questions could come out. Usually, tutorial questions would not come out for the exams. Therefore, you are left in the dark.
What Ms Yap helped me with, is that she gave me questions from different schools, and consolidated them; so that I would be exposed to different kinds of questions from different topics, and that I would know how a topic could be tested in many different ways. So that even if it does come out in exams, I would not end up being confused. So, that really helped me a lot; because some of the questions Ms Yap gave me, did come out in my exam, so that was very helpful. Her teaching style is quite different compared to my school teachers; because the way my school teachers teach, is through lectures and after the lecture has ended, the school teachers would go through the tutorials. But, the way Ms Yap does it, is that she teaches a section in a topic and then, does questions for that particular section. So, that helps you in the long term as you would memorize things faster and you can understand things better as well, so that is a good thing.
Because by the time you reach the tutorial for the topic in school, you will forget half of the things that you have learned during lectures already. Unless you revise continuously, which is not the case for most people. So, Ms Yap’s way of teaching is better, and Ms Yap’s materials are very good; because Ms Yap’s notes are consolidated and will save you a lot of time. For Ms Yap’s notes, 50 pages of school notes can be reduced to 5 pages, without compromising content so that you will still learn everything; and in fact, learn more. This saves a lot more time as it’s more accurate and much better. Therefore, this is one of the reasons why Ms Yap’s materials are better.
Hi, I am Hosanna. I am from TPJC. Before I came to Ms Yap, there were a lot of things I did not understand about Biology, because my school’s notes lacked content. When I came (for Ms Yap’s tuition), she gave me a set of notes which was very clear and concise. On top of that, her notes provide more content so it is easier for me to understand and answer questions for A levels. Ms Yap has also given me access to online resources Ms Yap has made, like online (lecture) videos she has created. Thus, it is very helpful because it helps with self- study (at home) and helps me save a lot of time. It has been very effective and very helpful.
My name is Gabriel. I was previously a student from Yishun Junior College, and this year I’m currently retaking A levels as a private candidate. 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 and the content is lacking in certain ways. So the challenges I faced before coming to Ms Yap’s tuition are that – Firstly, as a private candidate, I lacked the guidance required. Secondly, I had trouble understanding concepts as well as memorising them. Furthermore, I had problems linking concepts across topics which is necessary. After joining Ms Yap’s tuition, I actually have overcome some of these problems. How Ms Yap has helped me, is that firstly, she helps me understand concepts better by providing clearly annotated diagrams as well as highlighting important concepts that I might have overlooked. Secondly, Ms Yap is also a very friendly and dedicated teacher as she would often take time off tuition hours to help you answer your questions and query. Questions provided by Ms Yap are very high-yielding, in the sense they actually test you on your concepts and how well you understand it. The unique point of Ms Yap’s tuition is that her lessons are more detailed and she has a very patient style of teaching. Her lessons are longer hours compared to other tuition centres, because she wants to ensure that the lessons are not rushed through; and that the questions and content are adequately gone through, before she concludes her lesson to ensure that all students understand the things that were taught during the lesson. Even if you find that you are unable to understand the lesson, you can always approach her after lessons and she would be more than happy to help you.
I highly recommend joining Ms Yap’s tuition.
Feedback and testimonials from students
Brian Leung Chee Hoe’s Testimonial (Anglo Chinese Junior College)
“Ms Yap’s notes cover EVERYTHING that can possibly be tested in examinations. The duration of each lesson is often increased so as to ensure that we can understand the concepts and not fall behind. Ms Yap’s teaching is clear, precise and detailed. I am provided with her own lecture notes, showing common mistakes made, tutorial questions consisting of 10 year series questions…. The notes are more detailed and questions provided (by Ms Yap) often come out in my test, as compared to tutorial questions given by my school, testing us on our basics, which is not enough for us to be able to tackle the more challenging questions in the exam.”
Stuart Khoo’s Testimonial (Innova Junior College)
“I find Ms Yap is very patient with us. She is very detailed in her marking and she explains clearer as compared to my school’s teacher. Through her teaching, I learnt how to apply concepts to solve application questions and it had benefitted me greatly.”
