“Mr Puah is a very dedicated tutor who has guided me through the 2 years of the strenuous Chemistry syllabus. His notes are very concise and informative which helped me to revise Chemistry with ease. Mr Puah is a very patient tutor who will stay back with me after class to clarify the questions I have EVERY WEEK WITHOUT FAIL!

I will forever remember Mr Puah, thank you for saving my grades! =)” - Geraint Chow, NJC, 2022/23

"Hello Mr Puah I got an A for chemistry. Thank you so much for your lessons. The flexibility between online and in class sessions really helped me manage my time more effectively. Plus the recordings of the lessons ensured that if I wasn’t able to give my 100% during lesson I would still be able to make full use of the session! With the help of your resources I managed to get myself an A for A levels, a feat I never would have imagined possible after getting a U for Mid year exams! " - Aryan, ASRJC, 2020/21

“I managed to get an A for chemistry and I want to thank you for your effort and dedication in helping us to improve! I was especially weak in inorganic chem, but with repeated exposure, revision, and explanations that are easy to understand, I became more comfortable with those topics over time. Organic chem seemed unpredictable to me, but your framework and method to answer organic chem questions really helped to break it down to something more structured and manageable. I definitely couldn’t have improved and achieved good results without your patient guidance!!” - Jolyn Tan, HCI, 2020/21
