I had tried many times to look for a good English tutor before I was taught by Ms Casandra. However, it was very hard to find one. When Ms Casandra started teaching me English, I realised that English is an interesting subject to learn. However, after my first exam, my English results still didn't improve and my English teacher in school wrote a very discouraging comment on my essay. I was disheartened. However, Casandra always gave me the encouragement to continue to work hard. Her words of comfort moved me deeply and I felt motivated to learn English. Ms Casandra has taught me a lot of useful English techniques for writing essays and for tackling the comprehension. My school teacher has also realised that my English result has steadily improved after I used the techniques that Ms Casandra has taught me!
Casandra helped me tremendously for my GP paper in JC. GP became my favourite subject to learn in school especially after attending Casandra’s tuition sessions. She not only provides academic and structural help for constructing excellent essays, but she also goes through a lot of general knowledge topics which is the main core of GP. This made lessons interesting and extremely nourishing. I gained a lot of new information and insights on global happenings and on how to apply them to my GP paper. It felt exciting and interesting to learn more about the world, as Casandra used videos and different articles to teach me about them. I rarely received this knowledge from school. Casandra is very friendly and open, therefore I was able to freely discuss with her each other’s opinions about issues and this helped broaden my knowledge and insights. I have no regrets in attending Casandra’s sessions. Thank you so much for helping me throughout the year! I really enjoyed the lessons and I am thankful for you teaching me more about general knowledge, even more than helping me get good scores for my GP examinations throughout the year.
GP used to be a chore. Essay-writing and comprehension exercises were the nightmare of students like me - they were daunting and herculean tasks. However, after attending Casandra's lessons, I realised the beauty and relevance of GP in the materials she provides. I really appreciate how she curates videos and articles and compiles them for us to watch and read in our spare time as homework. She made me recognise that GP is not all about the academic component (such as exams and papers), but is also an enrichment to my knowledge of the workings of the world. I learnt about social and political issues, as well as gained exposure to current pertinent socioeconomic problems which I would not have found out for myself. Care and concern is the name of her game; her determination in making sure every student understand and grasp concepts and techniques is evident in her prompt and thorough replies via messages. These are qualities of a teacher that make me respect her and GP as a subject, allowing me to leap from Ds to an A in the A Levels. Like a torch in the cavernous labyrinth that is GP, she guides us toward the elusive A we have all been searching for.
