Hello Mr Tan,
Thank you so much for all your help and guidance throughout the past 2 years. You explained all the concepts so clearly, and the different worksheets really helped me to solidify my understanding. The mock papers that you gave also exposed me to a wide range of questions which allowed me to get greater confidence during the exams! Mr Tan has a strong emphasis on understanding rather than blindly memorising which was really helpful whenever I met unconventional questions. Thank you so much to Mr Tan and True Learning for allowing me to get my A in H2 Math!

Dear Mr Tan,
I'm very happy to share that I got an A for Mathematics in my A Levels. I could only dream of such a result and I definitely did not imagine I would be able to achieve this at first. However under your guidance and support I slowly understood and mastered the concepts and heuristics for the Math paper and became more and more confident. Although the A Levels is not the end, I have still learnt a lot and believe I can do better for Math now. Thanks again for your help and I wish TLC the best.

Starting off with a very weak foundation in H2 Math, I decided to join Mr Tan's class after failing test after test in J1. Mr Tan is very approachable in class and would clear our doubts individually, giving us individual feedback. He patiently guides us through the thinking process of how to solve questions of the same type rather than spoonfeed answers to us, which has helped me greatly in my learning, allowing me to understand the reason for every step that I write down.
The wide variety of tutorials given to us - ranging from topical to mock papers - has also given me a lot of chance to constantly review my weaker topics and make sure I am not out of touch with the topics taught earlier in the year, and this has allowed me to see my grades jump significantly through J2. Mr Tan's teaching is concise yet effective and he has helped me build up a lot of confidence in solving Math questions as compared to the first day that I entered his class. I would like to thank him for never giving up on me. Thank you Mr Tan!
Thank you Ms Jenny, Mr Tan and the True Learning Centre Team! I am happy with my results and I hope that the future batches will continue to bring you good results!

I would like to thank TLC and Mr Tan for helping my math grades to improve so tremendously! In both JC1 and JC2, I have never gotten above an S (subpass) grade on any math examination in school and almost gave up the subject wholly. But, after the lessons by Mr Tan which greatly improved my fundamentals, I finally understood concepts instead of just memorizing them, and got an A grade for A levels! Thank you Mr Tan and TLC!

Hi, Mr. Tan just wanted to say thanks again for the past 2 years.
I feel that TLC has played a significant role in helping me achieve A in H2 maths. During lesson time ample practices are given for each topic which prepared me greatly to face examinations/tests in school. The questions cover a wide range of question types which really broaden my exposure to each topic and help me better understand the core concepts and methods of each topic. Furthermore, the mock exam papers also helped to point out my weaknesses and areas for improvement. The small classroom size also serves to allow Mr. Tan to help each student individually and explain questions more efficiently. It also provides opportunity for me to learn from my friends mistakes and questions. Lastly, I believe Mr. Tan is a very qualified teacher as he manages to answer all our doubts quickly and confidently. He also explains concepts in a clear concise manner allowing us to grasp the concept fully.

My learning experience at TLC for the past 2 years has been a great and memorable one. Mr Tan is an extremely patient and friendly teacher who takes his time to make sure his sutdents understand every single maths concept he teaches. He also goes out of his way to help his students by helping them solve questions outside of his class time. Rather than feeding his students with answers he pushes his students to understand and learn each concept by giving them hints to think so that they'll remember how to solve the question. Thanks to Mr Tan remarkable teaching skills I've gained an interest and love for mathematics.

True Learning Centre's JC math lessons were extremely useful in my preparation for my H2 Mathematics papers for the GCE A-Level Cambridge Examinations. Mr Tan is very well-versed with the JC curriculum and syllabus, which is complemented with his many years of teaching experiences. His lessons are well-structured, planned and detailed, as it encompasses the various types of questions and skills required for each topics. Mr Tan is also very patient with us and would gladly answer any of our queries. The drill during the few months of preparation leading up to A Levels were helpful. All of these have been excellent in equipping his students to be well prepared to perform well at the GCE A-Level Examinations. Thank you Mr Tan for his guidance these years.

Classes at TLC have been extremely useful in helping me grasp mathematics as a subject. Not only were we exposed to many question types, we were provided with many topical worksheets that drilled us, and mock papers to simulate examination settings. Mr Tan is an extremely effective teacher who explains maths in a concise yet easy-to-understand manner. He is extremely patient when clearing our doubts and even answers questions over text outside of lesson time. Overall I felt that TLC has definitely contributed to my performance in math, and I managed to get an A for my A levels eventually. Thank you Mr Tan!

Thanks Max. Feedback from Dylan is that class size is ideal for him. He could understand your teaching, which is obvious from his improved grade B (grade E in mid-year). He did shared that CJC curriculum differs from the rest though but I guess he was alright with how things progressed. He resisted tuition initially and now he looks forward to tuition. This is really a pleasant surprise and we really appreciate you n the centre. The family will be away in Dec, hence he will miss the scheduled class in Dec and he's disappointed! We hope Dylan will continue to excel under your guidance. Thank you once again.

I have been a student at TLC since Secondary 1, when I failed my math test with an F9 grade. However, Mr Tan managed to turn that grade around, providing effective lessons. Lessons were ahead of school such that we would have prior knowledge, facilitating learning, and revisions were held afterwards, allowing us to review what we have learnt. Through this effective learning method, my grades have improved greatly, scoring contant As for Math, including H2 Math in A levels. Lessons were interesting and Mr Tan taught them very well, in unique ways that made remembering tedious formulas easy, as well as providing sufficient practice for smooth learning.

Marcus Tan

I joined TLC in the beginning of secondary school in the hopes of pulling up my poor math grades. I found the lessons concise and informative, refreshing the content that was already taught in school. The practice after each lecture component was targeted and comprehensive. The difficulty of the questions increased progressively over the practice sheet. This allowed me to become more familiar with common questions, and introduced me to more challenging ones. Juggling school, CCA and other commitments made going for math tuition a chore. I admit that I was not an enthusiastic student in the least. Nevertheless, my teachers continued to teach me tirelessly. They always tried their best to engage everyone in class. They were always ready to help clarify my doubts, breaking down concepts until I could fully understand them, no matter how long it took. As such, my math grades in secondary school improved dramatically. In JC, math became even more challenging for me. However, the extra practices and helpful tips leading up to the final A level exam went a long way in helping me to secure the best grade I could possibly hope for. All this would not have been possible without the support and guidance of my tutor Mr Tan.

Lee Jie Yi

When I first joined TLC in secondary 3, mathematics was truly a challenge for me. However, with the well-structured lessons and the help of the tutors at TLC, mathematics became a more enjoyable and clearer subject! Lessons at TLC synthesised the key concepts of each chapter and exposed me to a wide range of questions. They allowed me to both grasp the concepts more clearly and ensured that I know how to apply these concepts to different question types through constant practice. Moreover, the tutors at TLC were also greatly dedicated and patient, taking time to answer our questions both during and out of lesson hours! To sum it all up, I am truly thankful to all at TLC who have helped me slowly overcome the subject over the past 4 years.

Mr Tan is an excellent tuition teacher that is able to expound on key concepts in the H2 maths syllabus in a succinct and precise manner. His classes are very fruitful and well paced. Queries can be clarified at any point of time during class time and Mr Tan is always more than happy to answer them! Mr Tan always ensures that concepts are well taught and would give us challenging questions and papers to expose us to different types of questions to test our understandings of the various Maths topics. With a dynamic and interactive teaching style, and a comprehensive selection of maths excercises, I would recommend anyone who is struggling with maths to go for Mr Tan's tuition!

I joined True Learning when I was in secondary 2 and the TLC has helped me gain my confidence in Math ever since. In secondary 1 and 2, I was regularly getting C5 and C6 for my term tests, and I simply could not catch up with the syllabus in school. Just a month before my EOY exams, I decided to join the TLC despite my distaste for tuition initially. However, my worries were cleared on the very first lesson, as Mr Max Tan explained all the concepts and helped me visualise how the equations worked into graphs. To my surprise, I actually managed to get an A1 for my EOY exams, and ever since, I have remained in TLC. Despite only having 2 hours weekly, the lessons here are certainly more engaging than those in school, and the practice questions provided help me understand the mathematical concepts faster as they are progressively harder. This is unlike those in schools, where the questions are either too repetitive or simply too difficult to be completed. After being with TLC for  6 years, I have attained my A for H2 Math in A levels with ease and confidence.

My experience at True Learning Centre has been nothing short of fulfilling. I began my journey here in Secondary 2, and have stayed on all the way till undertaking the A level examinations. Mr Max Tan is a brilliant teacher- patient, kind and knowledgeable. Having thorough knowledge of the secondary and JC syllabus, he is highly proficient in guiding students in their journey of learning. The centre is well-equipped with resources to allow their students to reach their maximum potential. Mathematics has been transformed from a subject which I dread to one that is rewarding and something that I very much enjoy doing!

My time spent at True Learning centre was truly a memorable one. When I first started off at junior college, I was weak in H2 mathematics. Furthermore due to my harsh co-curricular activity(water polo), I did not have much time to self study. Through the guidance of Max Tan, his trust and patience in me pushed me through my hardships and it has gotten me an A grade in H2 mathematics. I am truly grateful for his guidance. Thanks,

Thank you for teaching me Math this year. I really enjoyed your Emath lessons because I could understand them clearly and lessons were always well-organised. You have been such a caring and dedicated tutor who always tried to make Math engaging. I really appreciate it when you came to help me when I sought consultation from you. Math has been quite a challenge for me considering I have a weak foundation in Secondary 3. It has always been rather difficult and it took me a long while to grasp the concepts that were being taught. But I am thankful having you as my tutor and being so patient when you came to help me solve my problems which I felt were too basic at times. I know it isn’t easy teaching a student like me who isn’t so academically inclined in Math but I am genuinely grateful that you have so much faith in me for aceing my Emath ‘O’ levels. Rest assured I will work hard for this upcoming ‘O’ levels.
