Statement by Tutor, James Tong

 

I have been a teacher for 25 years. My passion is in teaching humanities subjects. I believe that students misunderstand these subjects and that they can all do well. When I work with my students, they attain good results eventually because I help them in three aspects. I nurture them to love the subjects, I teach them how and what to remember, and I show them how to write good answers.

 

Hear from what my ex-students and parents say:

 

Students’ and Parents’ Testimonial

 

Jaron N-Level 2017: From C6 to A1 in Combined Humanities (Social Studies and Geography)

Javier N-Level 2020: From C6 to A2 in Combined Humanities (Social Studies and Geography)

 

Hi Jimmy

 

I would like to share our gratitude to your coaching in fact way back  4 years ago when you have coached my son Jaron in his Humanities -Geography and Social Studies. Jaron's performance in this subject is always in the red nor barely just passed. Until is our luck that we have found you and despite your busy schedule you are able to help to coach Jaron for less than 6 months to his N Level examination. To our surprise Jaron has scored A1 for this subject. Miracle has repeated again with his brother Javier this year. Due to Covid and CB we are unable to start Javier's tuition early. In fact we have only started in late July and less than 4 months to his N Level examination. Today 17/12 the N Level results was released and Javier score A2 for this subject. The credit for their good results has to be yours as without your proper guidance I don't think my son's will do well for this Subjects. Basing on your experience and confident to shape a student in a short period is most commendable. I am sure you will continue to help other students in this subjects and I will not hesitated to give my honest opinion and recommendation for your teaching in this subjects on Humanities - Geography and Social Studies.

 

Wish you all the best and sincerely thank you for your coaching.

 

Cheers

From Mr Tan

Father of Jaron and Javier

Ang Shao Xu, O level student of 2020

Duration of tuition: 2 months

 

Teacher Jimmy is a great Social studies/Geography teacher who knows how to coach his students accordingly to their strengths. He is very patient with me whenever he explains the techniques to tackle the difficult questions and has taught me better approaches to memorize them. At first, Social studies was very tough for me, but his teaching method helped me understand the concepts better, and most importantly, how to tackle the questions. With his help, I am able to score "A1" for Social Studies/Geography at 2020 "O" level. Thank you, teacher Jimmy!

 

 

 

From E8 to B3 in Combined Humanities(Social Studies and Geography)

Rachel Wong, O level student of 2020

Duration of tuition: 1 year

 

Dear Mr Tong,

 

Thank you so much for taking me as a student for social studies and geography this year! My struggles with the subjects throughout my secondary life, accompanied with my F9 for combine humanities in my end of year exams in secondary 3, really did put me in a bad place, making crude jokes daily, about my impending failure and lowering my self esteem. Even though I only was only taught by you for one year, I immediately saw results. Not only in my knowledge in the subject but my writing and phrasing of my answers. During the short time you taught me, I saw my grades jump. From the lowest failure to the highest grade in the class, all in the span of of half a year. For once, in a long time I felt hope in a good grade for my O levels. I’m happy to report that as of the 11th of January 2021, I’ve been able to attain a B3 for combine humanities in my O level exam! This was something I never through would be possible in my wildest dreams and I am incredibly grateful for all the hard work and time you out into teaching me. Thank you Mr Tong, for seeing my potential of being a good student when no one else would.

 

Stay safe and all the best on the future!

Rachel Wong and Sook Mei (mum)

Malcolm Goh, O level student of 2019

Duration of tuition: 4 months

 

Mr Tong is a wonderful humanities teacher. Before joining his tuition after my MYEs, I was struggling with the subject a lot and didn’t have confidence about doing well in the subject. Mr Tong’s lessons are very engaging and interesting which drastically changed my perception of both social studies and history. After teaching a particular skill or chapter, Mr Tong would provide work that is related to what was taught to reinforce my learning. The notes that he provides is also concise and clear which helps a lot for preparation of exams. Mr Tong is also a very experienced and dedicated tutor who has constantly answered my endless queries and doubts with great speed and clarity. Mr Tong also ensures that i fully understand the concept before proceeding. Nearing the exams, Mr Tong would also provide timed practices during the lessons targeted at the many different chapters and skills tested. He also provided me with many exam papers for me to practice. Nearing the O levels, Mr Tong gave me many valuable tips and tricks which helped in time management and understanding of questions. I am extremely grateful and thankful for Mr Tong’s guidance for the months leading up to the O levels! Thank you Mr Tong for believing in me since the very start and helping me achieve an A1 which I thought was impossible to achieve the entire time!

From C5 (Prelims) to A2 in Combined Humanities (SS and Geography) in O-Levels in 2018

Michelle Chiang, Crescent Girls’ School

Duration of Tuition: 1.5 months

 

I tried a few geography tuitions. However, the first time I passed geography was during prelims by a few marks. Thus, my mom was really worried since I wasn’t improving fast and searched for another geog tuition. That’s when mr tong taught me. There was only about a month left to geog O’s levels. He allowed me to remember the main and sub points really fast by using his technique. Since there wasn’t much time left in my case, I had to quickly clarify all of my doubts of the topics and he made me clear my doubts which helped me a lot. He was able to change my phrasing in such a short time too and he was of a great help that I improved from C5 to A2 for combined humanities.

I had tuition with Mr Tong for only about 12 sessions and my grades improved tremendously, from C6 in prelims to A1 in O-levels. His lessons are fun and his teaching methods are great such as getting me to use code words to memorise the points. Him predicting the exam questions allowed me to select topics which I am better in and focus on them mainly. He also helped me to manage my time in exam by giving me timed practices. Overall, his explanations were clear and easy to understand. Thank you Mr Tong.

Methodist Girls’ School, O-level 2017

My daughter started her geography and social studies tuition with Mr Tong one year before her O level exam. Her grades for both subjects were consistently at F9 until prelim. Mr Tong was very patient and helpful with all the topics she was unclear with and he was confident that he could help her do well for her o levels despite the odds. He would write out model essays in order for her to better understand the proper method to write her essays. Furthermore, he would willingly provide extra lessons before tests and exams despite his packed schedule. We are very appreciative that his faith in my daughter has led to her achieving A2 in her o levels for her combined humanities.

My son started his geography and social studies tuition with Mr Tong one year before his O level exam. His grades were always in the range of E8 to C6 for both subjects. Mr Tong had been patient and gave us his assurance that my son will score a distinction for his O level. We were doubtful and only hope for a pass. He is able to target my son's weakness and teach him the right way to study for both subjects using the least time. We are grateful to him for his coaching method which ultimately lead to my son scoring A2 for his combined humanities.

 

 

 

 

From C6 (Prelims) to A1 in Combined Humanities (SS and Geography)

Branen Lee, O-Level 2016

West Spring Secondary School

Duration of Tuition: 1.5 months

 

I only started tuition with Mr Tong in late August 2015. In 6 short lessons, Mr Tong was able to improve my Combined Humanities grade from C6 (during prelims) to A1 (during the O-Levels). What I benefited most was his unique method or memorizing content for the subject. He did not teach me to remember whole chunks of writing, but rather focused on helping me remember only the keywords and points using his codeword methods. His explanation were also very clear and I benefited from his question prediction through his examination trend analysis. Thank you Mr Tong

 

 

 

From C5 (Prelims) to A1 in Combined Humanities (SS and Geography)

Jarron Tan, 2016 N-Level, Montforrt Secondary School

Duration of Tuition: 1.5 months

 

My tuition journey with Mr Tong started in late August 2016 till my N-Level Geography paper on 6 Oct 2016. In that short 1.5 months of lesson time with Mr Tong, I was able to score an A1 in my N-Level Geography through learning from his effective study techniques and materials. I only scored a C5 during my prelims. Mr Tong’s teachings focused on 3 things that helped in my improvement. Firstly, using his unique memory code word system and his own summary notes for geography, he helped me to easily remembered tons of content. Instead of studying through all my notes and textbooks from school, he reduced the amount I needed to revise down to less than 10 pages of focused summary notes. Secondly, he was able to help me analyse different types of examination questions well. Using this analytical skill, I was able to zero in on what the questions were asking. Finally, Mr Tong, taught me how to raise my answer levels from level 2 to level 3 and 4 by adding real life examples and illustrations in my PEEL writing format. Mr Tong taught me through his teachings that Geography is a beautiful subject and that any student can score in this subject as long as they know the fundamental study skills. I am more confident in handling any content subject now.

 

 

 

 

From E8 (Prelims) to A2 in Combined Humanities (SS and Geography)

Milton Yeong, O-Level 2016, Greenridge Secondary School

Duration of Tuition: 3 months

 

My parents only started engaging Mr Tong as my combined humanities tutor in August 2016 after I did badly in my school preliminary examinations results (I scored E8 during the prelims). I was struggling with understand the content, memorizing the content as well as answer questions according to the right methods. Through Mr Tong’s coaching, I was able to understand the content better, I finally knew how to do SBQ better, and I was able to learn a simple but effective memory technique from him to recall all the content for the subject. His notes are very precise and to the point with emphasis in helping students remember in their long-term memory. As a result, I did not have to revise through all my notes. He also coached me in analysis of questions and answering them to the way examiners are looking for. I would like to thank Mr Tong for helping me score an A2 during the actual O-Levels for combined humanities.
