    I am always thankful to The Annexe Project and Alvin for standing by my side and rooting for me during the N and O levels. I never thought of aiming for an A for my A Math until Alvin suggested me to join his class back in 2016, when I was still preparing for my N levels. I eventually scored an A that year for both my E Math and A Math for the N levels! This not only gave me the confidence to continue with O-Levels the following year, it also provided me a strong foundation that eventually got me an A for both my E Math and A Math for the O levels as well! Secondary 5 was definitely a struggle for me but the stress level definitely reduced thanks to Alvin’s effective ways of teaching. He believes in creating a lively teaching atmosphere by cracking jokes during lessons, and that brought much joy and laughter to our class. Because he is such an approachable person, I am never afraid to reach out to him for extra consultations, ask questions on “Whatsapp” or raise my hands during his lessons to clarify concepts. This is something that I do not do often with my tutors in school. His lessons are always enjoyable and enriching as well. With his detailed explanations, unique solving methods and just-right paced lessons, I was able to get myself back on track to get that coveted A I had been dreaming of eventually! Alvin’s willingness to go far and beyond for his students can be seen through the endless consultations he provides, even if it means staying beyond his working hours. I vividly remember the number of times I met him after lessons for consultations, sometimes even late at night, and the numerous questions that I put in front of him, which he patiently solved them without any hesitation or complain. His support and words of encouragement motivated me to push beyond my limits. He made me realised that the term “NA” shouldn’t be a barrier that stops me from believing in myself and achieving higher goals in life.

    English has never been my forte because I do not have the interest and patience for reading. For a long time, I had only managed to scrape through my English tests and I found it challenging to break through the barrier of scoring a C5 or better. Initially, I felt that English was not that important as a subject until I did my thorough research and found out that a good score in English opens up to many course choices in Polytechnic after the N–levels. Despite doing well for my other subjects for my Preliminary Examinations, I merely achieved a grade of C5 for English and was still far off my goal. My target was to do well enough to qualify for the Polytechnic Foundation Programme, which required a minimum of B3 in English. I started to panic after this realisation, so I decided to seek help to improve my English. Lessons with my tutor, Michelle was always engaging and enlightening. She would constantly spur me on, assuring me that I’m not too far away from what I aspire to achieve and she really gave me the confidence that I so badly needed then. Furthermore, she would constantly drill me in the more technical aspects of answering all sorts of questions and run through with me all the possible case studies with the materials that she has prepared. Although it was a last-minute decision to take up English tuition with Michelle, she never gave up on me and had complete faith in me! I think this new-found confidence in me was the last ingredient that completed the dish and eventually I scored an A2 for my N-levels English. I would have never achieved this feat within a short span of 2 months if I hadn’t agreed to this crash course with Michelle, and for this, I’m forever grateful to her. Thank you!

    When I first started attending A-Math tuition at The Annexe Project, I wasn’t confident that it was going to do much for my already declining grades for the subject and I was really skeptical if this tutor would be of any help at all. I was never expecting an A for my A-Math in the coming O-levels, in fact a pass was already good enough for me. However, upon attending Alvin’s lessons, I realised how clear and detailed his explanations of the concepts and steps in solving the problem sums were, that I finally caught a glimpse of hope for the subject. Alvin also encouraged me to join The Astro programme for A-Math where I got to do more papers that were timed to further build my momentum and work on my time management. As I slowly see my results for the Astro papers improve, my confidence also started to soar! He was really patient to explain every single step to me clearly and he will never rush through his explanations just to send me away. After so many practice papers that I went through with Alvin, our efforts finally paid off and my grades for A-Math leaped from a F9 to an A2 for my O levels in just a short span of 6 months! I’m really thankful for what Alvin has done for me and I really enjoyed my time spent at The Annexe Project during the final lap towards O levels!

    Before joining The Annexe Project in 2018, I used to score poorly for Additional Mathematics. It was all the more disappointing because I was never able to score more than a B4. At that point, I could not even imagine getting an A. My parents signed me up for Alvin’s Additional Math tuition class but since I dreaded A-Math, I was initially reluctant to join The Annexe Project. But Alvin’s classes were a pleasant surprise. The unique teaching method he employed was enough persuasion for me to stay on and continue lessons. Alvin’s fun personality also added an enjoyable element to his functional way of teaching, making lessons very effective. Math became much simpler to me as I was able to grasp concepts that I used to struggle with. Alvin was extremely motivating as he explained Math problems with such clarity that I fully understood even the most challenging Math solutions. The notes he produced were of an excellent standard, and often featured extra practices covering a wide spectrum of different problem sums of varying levels of difficulty. He extends genuine care to all his students and gives us helpful advice to better ourselves. Because of Alvin’s dedication to his students, I placed my full confidence in him. Eventually, I got an A1 in A-Math for my O-Levels! Alvin, thank you so much for being an amazing tutor as I would have been unable to do this if not for your help.

    I did not like Mathematics since primary school. I found the subject to be very boring and tedious and I had no patience to sit through it and solve apparently meaningless problem sums. Thus, I couldn’t care less and ended up failing all my weighted assignments and tests. Secondary 3 was a wake-up call for me as I was told by one of my school teachers that a good score for Mathematics will determine my pathway after N-levels. So, I decided to seek help for the subject and fortunately enough, I chanced upon The Annexe Project and Alvin. Throughout my journey at The Annexe Project, my tutor Alvin, has always been a great motivator and believer in his students’ potential to achieve the best! His teaching skills are superior and sets him apart from the other tutors that I ever had. Alvin would ensure that his explanation is clear and that I will be able to understand each step. Furthermore, I remembered that when my N-levels were around the corner, he would always try to slot in an extra session or consultation for me amidst his already tight teaching schedule. On a few occasions, our lessons have gone late into the night because he wanted to complete teaching me the materials that he has specially prepared for me. For this I’m really grateful. I really owe it to Alvin for helping me achieve an A2 for Mathematics in my N-levels. It was a feat that I thought I could never achieve in my wildest dreams! Thank you, Alvin!

    It's not uncommon for ex-students to praise and thank their tutors after graduating. However, there are some tutors who deserve more than just praise. Alvin is one of them. Joining Annexe in 2014 was one of the best decisions I've ever made. My elder brother recommended it to me when I was extremely demoralised due to my deteriorating Math results. But, my relationship with Math changed for the better when I started Math lessons with Alvin. Alvin isn't a tutor who simply goes through the Math textbook during class. He emphasises on the importance of fundamental learning as understanding key concepts in Math is crucial. If I am unable to understand a concept, he continues simplifying it for me until I fully grasp it. His greatest strength is that he never leaves his students’ side. When I was in Secondary 3, there was nothing more agonising to me than solving Math problems. But that agony disappeared whenever I had lessons with Alvin. I have seen him sacrifice his meals, off-days and even sleep so he could assist me with the complications I faced while solving Math sums. Staying at the tuition centre way past working hours became a norm, and as bad as I felt for taking up his time, he insisted that we fully understand the topic at hand. It was liberating to have no doubts about Math concepts while leaving the centre. That is an accomplishment that Alvin helped me achieve. I’m pretty sure you can’t find tutors like the ones at Annexe, anywhere else. They are not in it for the money. They are in it for us.  In addition to helping with my results, Annexe also gave me a new friend. More than a tutor, Alvin is someone I can confide in. He offers us continual support and guidance, making the centre feel like home. Alvin is also a great role model as his passion and desire for teaching is very inspiring. He has delivered whole-heartedly, as an amazing friend and tutor, playing a pivotal role in my secondary school life. I am so glad to have placed my full trust in him as he prioritises his students before anything else.  Eventually, I scored A1s for both my E.Math and A.Math in the O Levels and A for my H2 Mathematics in the A Levels, all thanks to Alvin and The Annexe Project! Thank you for helping us unleash the potential we didn’t know we had. Cheers!

    Life as a  Junior College student is never easy due to its heavy workload. Being a playful student didn’t help either. I struggled a lot during my first year in JC and it got to a point where I got an S grade for H2 Mathematics. That’s when I knew things had to change. Indeed, joining The Annexe Project helped with that. Alvin’s Mathematics classes accommodate a small group of students per class, unlike usual classroom settings. I found that learning in a smaller class is exceptionally better as I was able to ask questions and seek clarifications from Alvin whenever a doubt arose. Because my classmates and I were so comfortable with each other, we would participate actively in class and even challenge each other to solve more math problems. In addition, Alvin’s weekly Astro programme pushed me a step further as we attempted Math papers at our own time and Alvin guided us through the answers in class. This was extremely useful as it instilled the practice of completing Math papers under examination conditions. Soon, I got used to the three-hour-long Math papers and it gave me the confidence to tackle my school examinations. True enough, I was overjoyed to see my grades change from Ds, to C’s. Over the course of the year, I even saw Bs and As.  Nearing the A-Levels, The Annexe Project became my second home. I would visit Annexe every day to study as it has a very conducive environment. As my tutors would also be in the centre, they were more than happy to offer assistance anytime I had to clarify the doubts I had while studying. Studying at Annexe wasn’t only effective, but memorable as well. My friends and I would study until late, laughing over our meals during breaks and helping each other with difficult problem sums. The unwavering support from my tutors motivated me to outdo myself, and I did. Alvin’s unique and engaging method of teaching us let me enjoy Math in a way I never thought was possible. Without Alvin’s tutelage, I would not have gotten an A for H2 Math that I worked so hard for! Annexe taught me how to master Math and even gave me new friends and memories that I will remember dearly for the rest of my life. Thank you Alvin and The Annexe Project for giving me a second home to learn and grow.

    I would like to start off by saying how immensely grateful I am to have been part of The Annexe Project.  I joined the centre in 2016 when I was in Secondary 4, as I was struggling with Additional Mathematics. In the span of a few months, I was able to pull up my grades from E6s and D7s to achieving a stellar grade of A2 for my O-levels. This impressive feat wowed me and I had to stay on to continue my journey at The Annexe Project. Having witnessed the amazing results I achieved with Alvin's help, I enrolled for Junior College lessons with Annexe. As I struggle with Math, this turned out to be a wise decision because Annexe provided me with much-needed guidance during the critical months leading up to my A-levels. Although Math is not my strongest subject, Annexe’s enriching lessons allowed me to clinch a distinction in H2 Mathematics for A-levels! What sets the Annexe Project apart from other tuition centres is the homely atmosphere of the centre. The friendly tutors, students and staff have left a lasting impression on me as friendly conversations with them comforted me during the gruelling weeks leading up to the A-levels. The snack-filled pantry also adds to my love for the centre. Alvin is an outstanding teacher who goes beyond his job of teaching, and bonds with his students by creating memorable connections with us. He also makes his lessons interesting and easy-to-understand by sharing great study tips and resourceful shortcuts. The Annexe Project has helped me tremendously during my school days, and I’m certain that I definitely wouldn't have achieved my As if it were not for Alvin's constant help and guidance. To whoever is thinking of joining the Annexe Project, my advice is: hesitate no further, you definitely won't regret your decision!

    Family. That is what The Annexe Project means to me. My elder sister had introduced this place to me and since then, I have attended classes with The Annexe Project throughout my Secondary and Junior College school days. Every tutor and staff member here treats you like family. The environment is very homely and inviting as there is always food in the pantry, and drinks in the fridge for students to snack on in between lessons. Occasionally, the tutors also reward students with delicious treats as a reward for our hard work. I fondly reminisce the times I had lessons at Annexe because there was no such thing as a tiresome lesson. Every lesson I had there was extremely enjoyable. Amidst all the fun, tutors also push us to better ourselves, continually ensuring that we improve progressively throughout the lessons. Plus, my classmates made the learning experience even greater as we would often help one another with difficult questions. It is safe to say that Annexe has the formula for a perfect learning environment. Alvin’s teaching methods were integral in helping me achieve good results. Alvin’s patience with every student is truly commendable. If I am unsure about a concept, Alvin will explain the answer to me very clearly and only move ahead with the lesson if he is convinced that I am familiar with every detail of the Math sum. He is also very well-organised and illustrates clear diagrams in his extensive list of notes that let us fully understand how to solve a wide range of questions. As a sincere tutor, Alvin prioritises his students which makes us feel assured and safe under his tutelage. I am also thankful for his constant support in other areas of my life. He not only motivates me to improve my grades during lessons, but also to improve myself. Alvin allocates times of the week to spend with his students. Sometimes, we even visit the gym together after a long day of studying at the centre. When I first attended his lesson in Secondary 2, I could barely achieve an E8 in Additional Mathematics. I had a promotional exam in school which would decide if I was capable of taking A-Math for my O-levels. With just one week of intensive lessons with Alvin, I managed to get an A1 for it! It was unbelievable and gave me an immediate boost of confidence in Math. Over the years, Alvin continued to push me to greater heights. Alvin’s expertise is that he understands that each student has a different learning speed and adjusts his lessons accordingly. That is the mark of a good tutor. Eventually, with hard work, due diligence and constant support from Alvin, I scored A1s for both my E.Math and A.Math in the O Levels and A for H2 Mathematics in the A Levels! Thank you Alvin!

    The Annexe Project is not just a tuition centre, but a second home to many of us. I was constantly failing H2 Mathematics in my first year of Junior College as my foundational knowledge of Math was weak. Because I was struggling with it, I didn’t practice much Math either. Having failed the subject numerous times, I was slowly losing confidence in myself and I was beginning to accept that I would never do well at Math. My classmates introduced Alvin to me in my second year at Junior College and I am really thankful that they did because joining Annexe was the best decision I’ve ever made. Alvin was very patient and approachable, right from the start. He helped me identify my academic weaknesses and always simplified complex explanations. Alvin matched his pace of teaching to my learning speed, which helped a lot. He took his time to explain difficult concepts and they became much easier to grasp. After-class consultations with Alvin also helped remarkably. Under the ASTRO programme, we completed weekly exam papers under timed conditions. This was very useful leading up to the A-levels as it gave me the practice and momentum I needed for a 3-hour Math paper. With Alvin’s help and constant motivation, I improved tremendously and managed to jump 4 grades within 9 months for A-levels! I am extremely thankful to Alvin and appreciate his dedication to help his students improve and excel. Annexe also strikes the perfect balance between work and play, as students always look forward to Annexe’s fabulous and fun parties during special festivals. The students, tutors and staff get to unwind and relax for all the hard work we have put in. In fact, even ex-students attend these annual parties to relive the memories they have experienced at this amazing place. Annexe is truly a great place for individuals to grow and maximise their potential!

    Despite my decent foundation in E-Math, A-Math was a whole new world for me and it was definitely one of my biggest challenges in school. My brother and cousins recommended The Annexe Project to me and I decided to take it up. At first, I thought Annexe would be just another tuition centre where all we do is practice papers. But, that was definitely not the case as Annexe has a very friendly and homely environment. To me, Annexe is not just a place of study but it’s an environment where you can have fun while learning. All through my Secondary 3 and 4 years, I never once felt like going to Annexe was a chore. Alvin was always there for me whenever I needed help with tough Math sums. He gave me constant guidance and even went the extra mile to schedule consultations with me. Alvin’s expertise on the subject allowed me to learn something new every lesson! Thanks to Alvin’s constant encouragement and his clarity in teaching style, I’ve maintained a strong A throughtout my entire Secondary 4 journey which is something I would have never have dreamed of. Thank you The Annexe Project for not just being my pillar of support but more importantly for being my second home.

    Ms Ke Ling’s amazing teaching methods and her unbelievable amount of belief in me was the only thing that made me like tuition and is of the main reasons I got a A* for my PSLE!
  • Jonathan Choe

    Ms Ke Ling always tries to make the lessons less boring, especially for a person like me with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), that is a little bit hard because my attention span is usually drawn away very quickly. In every lesson, I will always be able learn something new instead of sitting around and blindly doing work all the time. If I don’t understand anything, she will explain it patiently to me. In Secondary 1, I was not great in Mathematics. As I was in Foundation Mathematics during Primary school, it was a lot harder than before, but with her guidance, I managed to pick up everything very quickly and my grades improved! I actually top my N(T) cohort for Mathematics. I am very grateful that I was able to find a teacher like her who is super friendly and patient with me.

    Getting an A1 for A Math was something I would never had imagined a year ago, in 2012. I first set foot in The Annexe Project with an F9 in A Math somewhere in mid-2012. I came due to strong recommendation by my cousin, as he said that this tuition centre isn’t like any other– the tutors here were amazing as they taught in a unique, fun, yet effective way. I was rather doubtful as this seemed humanely impossible. I signed up for an A Math class taught by Alvin, and boy, was I in for a fun and exciting journey. He was really special. His explanation of math problems was done with wonderful clarity, as each and every one of us could understand his solutions effortlessly. He didn’t just present the answers in a slipshod manner with poorly drawn diagrams like some other teachers do, but instead always took the effort to draw his diagrams with utmost precision, showing how serious he took his work. His professionalism is commendable. I eventually got my A1 for A Math for my O Levels. From F9 to A1 in a matter of months. I admit that it really wasn’t an easy feat for a lazy student like me, I would never be able to do it alone without the group of caring, motivational, and inspirational tutors in The Annexe Project. Thank you to The Annexe Project for making a positive difference in my results and my life.
  • Lee Le Xin

    Victoria Junior College
    I cannot say how thankful I am for being introduced to The Annexe Project. I have always been slower in the understanding of Math concepts as compared to my peers. However, Alvin’s clear and structured way of solving the problems allowed me to better follow the solving process and enlightened me to a very standardised way in which certain questions were solved. Alvin also took a very innovative approach to teaching us Math with his uniquely invented methods of solving Math problems. He instilled in us a confidence in his solving methods which were not only effective, but also engaging, helping us to better remember these methods. I remember fondly the times when Alvin would stay back beyond his working hours just to help us to understand the concepts and to ensure that we were able to fully grasp them. His constant encouragements and unwavering belief in me also renewed a hope in me for the subject and a confidence not from my own abilities in math, but from a faith in their teaching and guidance. The Annexe Project is definitely not your typical tuition centre. Even though I woke up late and started to put in more effort in striving to achieve an A grade very near to the A levels, Alvin’s note of encouragement to me prior to the exam carrying the message ‘Make Today Count’ really gave me that surge of motivation to push through that very last lap despite the odds and dare to believe in myself once again, to give my best in the limited time I had left.

    I would like to reflect on someone who has been a great influence on my personal growth. My Math tutor from The Annexe Project, Alvin Yeo, has always been very motivating and encouraging. He has never failed to help those who turn to him and has always done so enthusiastically. For instance, he has never shied away from opening the tuition centre on public holidays. Going beyond the call of duty is second nature to him, and this quality has inspired me. Alvin has always encouraged friendly competition between his students. We have been following a system where we would spar and motivate each other. Transparency and telling it like it is are stellar qualities that have influenced me greatly. Alvin is more than a tutor to me – he is a trusted friend. He is a role model in terms of both character and achievements. Alvin has cultivated mental strength in me to face challenges and adversities, as well as to overcome my setbacks. He has also made work look like play – he made me enjoy what I was doing for two years in Junior College, despite my initial inhibitions. Alvin has always challenged me to keep doing better in Math. My success in A Level Math is by no small measure due to Alvin’s coaching, guidance, and encouragement. I feel that I have grown in terms of my resolve and mental strength, which are great assets.
  • Seet Qi Hao

    Meridian Junior College
    When I first came to Alvin, the first lesson did not disappoint. Alvin’s charm comes from the fact he teaches through the eyes of a student, he sources out the exact problem which impedes your understanding of a certain concept and demolishes it. Something my other JC teachers, despite their years of experience, had failed to do. In addition, lessons were never boring with Alvin’s unique style of humour and classic quotes, which made me look forward to lessons. Soon, I got more confident with each chapter till a point where I realised that scoring for the A-levels was definitely possible for me! However, the thing that really sets Alvin apart is his willingness to go the extra mile for students. Few people actually know that Alvin does not have his meals on time. He literally refuses to eat until his classes are over and all his students are cleared of their doubts. The fact that he volunteered to coach me till the wee hours of the night are moments that I still hold dearly till this day. Simply speaking, he is like an older brother that I never had. These are things which few tutors will do for their students and it’s precisely because of these attributes which, in his own words, make him awesome.
  • Rason Chen

    Dunman High School
    After I enrolled in The Annexe Project in Feb 2011, I’ve never regretted doing so at any point of time until now. I really admire their vision of helping students to the best of their abilities and of course, the outstanding credentials of each and every teacher, especially the one and only Alvin! The moment I entered the classroom, I was greeted with a warm smile by Alvin. That gesture alone sets him apart from many educators I’ve known and heard of. Alvin’s method of teaching is uniquely different. He approaches every student amicably, clarifying their questions and doubts with confidence and occasionally adds in the lamest jokes you’ve heard of! Initially, my grade for H2 Mathematics was just a cut-off B. Under Alvin’s guidance, my grade improved to a high A! Alvin is more than just a teacher, he is a mentor and friend as well. In my opinion, The Annexe Project is a tuition centre which every student should attend. With ample resources and awesome teachers, students are able to improve their grades and achieve their highest potential! Every teacher in Annexe Project is knowledgeable, thoughtful and is more than willing to go the extra mile to help their students. Their love and undying passion in educating the young and aspiring is something that I, as a graduate from Annexe Project, respect a great deal.
  • Mazel Ling Yu Jing

    O-Level English Class of 2017
    The quality of the English lessons at the Annexe project is remarkable. Not only are they engaging, they are also effective. My English tutor Michelle is extremely committed to her teaching. She will always give detailed explanations and help all students to clarify their doubts before moving on. Michelle also goes an extra mile to help us improve our English. She even collates lists of possible questions that might come up for the O-level. With all that preparation and her belief in me. I tried my utmost best and finally succeeded. I would like to express my sincere thanks to The Annexe Project and of course, Michell for helping me to clinch the ‘A’ grade which I once thought was unattainable.
  • Li Yu Bei

    The AEIS tuition with Michelle is the main reason why I passed my AEIS exam. At that time, tuition with Michelle was the only thing that gave me confidence that I could pass the AEIS. Before that I felt that I was wasting time and money studying abroad because I really learnt nothing and made no progress at private school. I really love studying with Michelle because the way she teaches me is really methodical and clear. The things she taught me are really useful for the AEIS exam. I really thank Michelle because she helped me make my dream of studying in a government school come true and I have no regrets on my learning journey in Singapore!
  • Emma Wang Kaiyi

    AEIS English Class of 2016
    As a student preparing for the AEIS examination, I found it very difficult. This is because there were many new words to learn and I had to improve my writing a lot. Furthermore, I only had two months to prepare for the paper. Sometimes, when I studied, I felt like it was a headache to memorise all the new words. Michelle really helped me a lot with vocabulary. She taught me which words and expressions were important and gave me some exercises so that I could revise what I had learnt. This gave me a lot of confidence. After I did all of Michelle’s exercises, I could remember new vocabulary a lot better. Compared with studying for the AEIS on your own, studying with Michelle is my preference. At the tuition center, not only can you get new knowledge, but you can also get important study tips from Michelle. I really recommend having Michelle as a tutor!
