Parent/Student Comments
"Ms Lin is really a great Teacher. She is very patient and nice to my daughter. My daughter enjoyed her tutoring and surprisingly after 2 lessons with Ms Lin, she managed to score 93% in her Physics (top 3) in her CA1. Before she was confused and lost and now she loves Physics. A Big thank you to Ms Lin." - Mrs Wong
