Student Testimonials

Wang Yi Xue – F9 TO A1 IN E. & A. MATH, C. SCI

“It was really a struggle for me to master the English language when I first arrived from China 4 years ago. However, after I enrolled myself in English classes with Stalford, I started feeling much more comfortable with expressing myself in English. It was no longer that daunting a task to read aloud a passage in English. My teacher was very patient and responsible. He provided a very nurturing environment for conducive learning. “

YIN HAO – B3 TO A1 IN E. MATH & A. MATH

“I was with Stalford since I was in Primary 1 – that makes it 10 years! The teachers were friendly and they really took the effort to understand and to cater to the needs of each and every student despite the differences in our learning abilities. One of my teacher would formulate his own questions – this made learning Amaths a really enriching experience for me.”

Ng Yin Hao – Jurong Sec

VANESSA HON – B3 TO A1 IN P. CHEM

“I have been a student of Stalford since Primary 5. I felt that I need extra practices at my studies even though I find my school teachers good. Mr Jay Liew is a fantastic teacher. He devises his own methods to help students to understand concepts effectively. He is also a jovial teacher and often crack jokes to make us relax during his lessons, thereby making us enjoy learning.”

CHRISTINE – F9 TO A1 IN A. MATH

“I have been a student of Stalford since Primary 3. I was a naturally weak student in my primary school days and on top of that, I had little interest in my studies! If not for Stalford, I might not have passed my PSLE. After my PSLE, it was a good wake up call for me. Since I had improved in my studies, I was happy to continue my learning with Stalford. I decided to focus on my weaker subjects for the ‘O’ Levels. I like my teacher, Mr Alex Chee, a lot as he is always very innovative in coming up with different games to introduce various concepts. Whatever I did not understand in school, I can always count on him to clear my doubts. Even if all of us were weak in different topics, he would prepare the notes to target all these areas, none of us were ever neglected.”

ALVIN PHEE – B3 TO A1 IN C. SCIENCE

“I have been with Stalford for 7 years. The teachers at Stalford are really a fun bunch. I looked forward to attending classes because they were so engaging and interactive. There were no communication barriers and they really understood what we needed. The small class size was conducive for learning effectively.”

Alvin Phee – Boon Lay Sec 

ZI RUI – F9 TO A1 IN C. PHYSICS

“I took up lessons with Stalford barely a few months before my ‘O’ Levels as I began to panick for the year end examinations. I was never one who would initiate taking lessons; even my mum was surprised I would ask her to enroll me in a centre! I had private tuition during my primary school days and I felt that was too stressful for me. Since my friends who were already studying with Stalford were all doing well, I felt that I can put my trust in them. I realize that once I start to master Physics, I begin to love it! I find it amazing that I can solve all the questions after tuition at Stalford – the feeling is just fantastic! The notes that Stalford provides are so good I was sharing them with my friends. After my results were released, my mum was recommending people to the centre, haha!”

Tan Zi Rui – Ang Mo Kio Sec

YUN QIAN – E8 TO A1 IN P. CHEM

“I joined Stalford a little bit before my mid year examinations in Secondary 4 and within a short time, my grades for Pure Chemistry improved from E8 to B3 in my 1st semester. I prefer group tuition as I can learn from the questions raised by other students in the class. I feel that the scope of questions I can ask during a 1-to-1 tuition is very limited. My teacher, Mr Tan, is very focus in teaching and he even stays up to an hour after class for us to clear all our doubts with him! Knowing that students can be shy about raising questions, he will sometimes get the whole class to close their eyes and ask who do not understand a question to raise their hands. After which, he will spend time to go through it. I truly appreciate his dedication!”

Chi Ching – Nan Hua High 

YUKEI OO – F9 TO A1 IN A. MATH

“I only joined Stalford after my first preliminary examinations (around 3 months before ‘O’ Levels) as I started to panic for my papers. I was given a lot of practice papers during my lessons. My teacher, Mr Jay Liew, will refresh the concepts and provide intensive revision of topics. If there are students who managed to solve a question with better methods, he would share it with the whole class and I feel that I benefitted from this. The notes he has prepared for his class is so good that I can understand the concept simply by reading!”

Yukei Oo – Commonwealth Sec

XIENA – C6 TO A1 IN C. SCIENCE

“I was recommended by my friend who also took lessons with Stalford AMK. I was taught by Mr Gabriel Morais and he always highlights key points for us. I feel that this is extremely important for effective learning as each lesson is around 90mins. He prepares topical questions for us to revise and prepare for the examinations. Under his teaching, I managed to improve my grade from a borderline C6 to A1 in ‘O’ Levels!”

Tan Yi Jie, Xiena - Ang Mo Kio Sec

LEE WAN RONG – B4 TO A1 IN E. MATH

“I was taught by Mr Cham in Mathematics. He often compiles practice questions and formulas  for us for revision. Every student in his class has been taught by him for a long time – which can imply that his lessons are not only effective but enjoyable. As everyone knows one another, he even treated us to food during our farewell party as we are all graduating from secondary school! Before our ‘O’ Levels, he gave us a crash revision that lasted for 4hours, that really showed his dedication and passion.”

Lee Wan Rong – Crescent Girls Sec 

VALERIE OH – C6 TO A1 IN A. MATH, E. MATH & CHINESE

“My teacher at Stalford has left a deep impression on me. He was able to communicate with all of the students and teaches the subject with great enthusiasm and humour. All these have contributed to my consistent good results for Mathematics.”

Valerie Oh – Ang Mo Kio Sec

LOW SIEW KHIM – F9 TO A1 IN A. MATH

“I was faring really badly in school at the end of my Secondary 2 education, out of 150 students, I was at the 120th range so you can imagine! My Physics teacher, Mr Jay Liew, gave me a lot of notes and past year examination questions to practise. His notes include detailed explanation for each question. Being taught by him for a year in Secondary 3 really set a strong foundation for me in Physics. After improving tremendously, I stopped my tuition in Secondary 4 but still went on to achieve an A2 for the subject!

I find 1-to-1 tuition not useful, there was even a time when my ex-tutor spent the entire lesson trying to solve a question I asked – at the end of the 2-hr-lesson, the question still remained unsolved and all I could do was to wait for her. Such scenarios are not uncommon in private tuition. At Stalford, we are in the good hands of experienced tutors who are either current school teachers or ex-school tutors who are very experienced and in touch with the syllabus.”

Low Siew Khim – Clementi Town Sec

SETH LIM – E8 TO A1 IN C. SCIENCE

“I have studied with Stalford for 2 years. Since I joined the centre, I have seen remarkable improvement in my grades for Combined Science, which I had difficulty passing. My teacher, Gabriel Morais, explains concepts in a very clear manner to me. He also gives students a lot of practices and goes through each question with us.”

Seth Lim Jun Wei - St Patrick Sec

RASHIDA – C6 TO A1 IN A. MATH & ENG

“My English teacher, Mdm Julie, often shares good articles from Reader Digest’s with us. This greatly helped me in building my vocabulary for composition. I find her style of teaching very interactive, and this made me enjoy learning. My English had always been a borderline passing in school and I was over the moon when I received an A1 for the subject for my ‘O’ Levels. Thank you Stalford!”

Noor Rashida Bte Meera Sabib - Commonwealth Sec

NEO KANG WEI – C6 TO A1 IN A. MATH

“I have thoroughly benefitted from my enrollment in Amaths with Stalford. My teacher recognizes each and everyone of our strengths and weaknesses. She constantly spurs us on and motivates us to work intensively on our practice papers. She never hesitates to build on from the basics, so as to ensure that each and everyone of us understands every topic. “

Neo Kang Wei – Bowen Sec

NEO JING SHAN – C5 TO A1 IN E. & A MATH

“I saw significant improvement in my Emaths and Amaths when I joined Stalford. My teacher was really humorous and likeable. He injects fun into learning by incorporating games and brain-stimulating speed tests. His teaching method is effective for me because he does not merely spoonfeed. Attending classes at Stalford has helped me to gain an interest in these subjects.”

Neo Jing Shan – Westwood Secondary

LEK CHIN HOW – C6 TO A1 IN C. CHEM

“My teacher at Stalford was very motivating and nurturing. He goes beyond his duties as a teacher – he cares for each individual student’s progress and is always there for us. I am really impressed with his teaching methods and his worksheets proved to be very useful. My understanding of the subject has improved so tremendously, thanks to Stalford!”

Lek Chin How – Jurong Sec

Kenneth Khor – C6 TO A2 IN ENGLISH

“I have heard about Stalford from my mum’s friend and I decided to give it a try as the fees are affordable and the location is very convenient for me. I was taught by Mr Chia for English. He prepares comprehension passages for us to not just practise, but also got us to read aloud so that he can correct our pronunciation to prepare for our Oral examinations. My grade for the subject went from a borderline passing to A2 for the ‘O’ Levels. Besides English, I also scored As for E & A Maths, and Pure Physics – all subjects I took with Stalford!”

Kenneth Khor – Queenstown Sec

ELAINE TAN – B4 TO A1 IN A MATH

“I was taught by Mr Adrian Tan in A Maths. Mr Tan is a very patient,  well-organised and friendly teacher. He plans ahead for lessons and always knows what he would cover by our next lesson. This focus kept the class on track towards the ‘O’ Levels. He rebuilt my foundation in A Maths step-by-step, topic by topic, through good questions he gathered from various sources.”

Elaine Tan Wei Ping – Angelica High 

WAN CHI CHING – F9 TO A2 IN P. CHEM

“I was taught by Mr Jay Liew and I find his notes extremely useful – they truly contain everything you need for the examinations! He also goes through a lot of papers from other schools, with that, I gained an excellent understanding for the concepts in the syllabus.”

Chi Ching – Nan Hua High 

ANNABEL KOH – U TO A IN GENERAL PAPER

Amanda Kee – D7 to A1 in Pure Chemistry

“With a smaller number of students in the class, I am able to concentrate better and the teacher can also give each of the students more attention. My teacher is very meticulous and he will ask for feedback after lessons so that he can come up with better lesson plans for subsequent lessons. The teaching materials serve to value-add the notes I get from school, and this allows me to have a more in-depth understanding of the topics.”

Amanda Kee, Commonwealth Sec
