    I was failing in class, but thanks to Francis, I was able to do well for my exams. He has always been helpful and willing to sacrifice his time for me when I need it. He is patient as well and is the best tuition teacher I ever had!

  • Bryan Soh Testimonial

    I have been Koon Yeow’s student for about 3 years since the year 2010. He had been a great help to me in Mathematics and Science as I prepared for my GCE ‘O’ and ‘A’ Levels examinations. Koon Yeow is a wonderful tutor who is fully committed to the students he tutors, understanding them and their preferred methods of learning and adapting his teachings accordingly to suit their needs, to maximise their learning and understanding. Koon Yeow had also kept me well motivated by giving genuine encouragement and rewarding me at times for my studying. Personally, he has also been a good friend to me, relating to my interests and this had at the same time served as more motivation for me to work hard in tuition. Because of his excellent tutoring, my parents have also arranged for Koon Yeow to continue to help by tutoring my younger sibling. In conclusion, Koon Yeow’s commitment and great knowledge of what he teaches are some good points he has that can make him an effective tutor and also a good personal friend to his students.

    During the years that I’ve been taught by Francis, I felt that he has been a patient, friendly and approachable tutor. He had creative methods to address my areas of weakness in the various subjects that he taught me, such as Elementary and Additional Mathematics, as well as Chemistry and Physics. Apart from being excellent at his tutoring, Francis is also a good listener and encourager.

  • Nicholas Testimonial

    Through the year Francis has taught me, I have looked forward to every lesson with him. His skills to change long text book information into summarized and very effective notes and points are incredibly helpful for tests and examinations. Every lesson was enjoyable and spirit lifting, for he made subjects interesting and engaging. He helped me to understand topics in Science Chemistry and Biology much clearer. I consider myself to be very fortunate that he had tutor me and he is a good friend to me. Any student under his guidance is truly blessed.

  • Isabella Testimonial

    Throughout my P6 year, Dr Francis has guided me through the easy and very often tough concepts of Mathematics. Now as a secondary 2 pupil, he continues to inspire me to do better and his wonderful style of teaching will continue to aid me in the future as well. He is an avid teacher and is definitely someone who should be teaching your child.

  • Perlyn Long Testimonial

    7 years ago, Francis helped me ace my A and E math for O levels. He was always patient and explained each topic that I was weak in in ways that I could understand well. He always knew which topics to work on, which really helped me focus my studying for the exams. He genuinely cared about my grades and progress and always stayed past the hours that he was paid for if I needed help, or if there was an upcoming test. Lessons with him were never boring and he instilled an appreciation for mathematics in me. He is a truly great tuition teacher and you will be hard pressed to find a better one.

  • Angela Testimonial

    As a parent, I found Francis to be a dedicated and patient tutor. He is good in helping his students build strong foundations in the respective subjects he taught. Moreover, he has innovative methods of addressing their weak areas in the various subjects. During the 8 years that he tutored my two children, he has proven to be capable of motivating them to achieve their personal best, in both Secondary School and Junior College. My son and daughter have secured places in local universities, majoring in Engineering and Accountancy respectively.

    Angela’s children was taught by Francis from 2005 – 2012 from Pri 5 till JC2. Subjects taught include PSLE Maths, E.Maths, A.Maths, Physics, Chemistry, H2 Maths, H2 Chemistry

  • Samuel Testimonial

    I took ‘O’ Level Chemistry lessons under Francis. Before I met him, my chemistry grade was a D7, and I was approached by one of my school teachers who advised me to drop the subject unless I could improve my grade. That was when my mum suggested that I took tuition under him. I was at first skeptical but after a few lessons I was convinced that Francis was committed to seeing me not only to pass the subject, but excel in it as well. In the next exam, I scored better and though it was only a C6, I was praised by my teacher who was pleased that I had passed. Francis is great at explaining concepts and ensuring essential information is not easily forgotten.

    Samuel eventually scored a B3 for his ‘O’ Levels Exam, an improvement of 4 grades before he started with Breeze Education.

  • Zhao Yi testimonial

    Francis is an extremely patient and dedicated tutor. If there’s a concept I couldn’t grasp, he would attempt innovative ways and analogies to help me understand. I was more motivated to study once the previously-daunting subjects become less intimidating under his tutelage. I am honored to have had him coach me.
