Testimonials and Positive Reviews
Saadia, Singapore and the United Kingdom
Eunice and my children go back a long way. And I cannot thank her enough for taking both my son Omar and daughter Zahra under her wings, when they needed the confidence, the support and guidance. Meticulous, patient, generous and highly qualified, Eunice is a complete embodiment of a perfect teacher. This is a note of complete gratitude and appreciation towards this wonderful human being.
Anna's parent, Anna, International Secondary School (A Grade in Mathematics)
Thank you Eunice for all that you have done for Anna. My spouse and I are very appreciative and happy to see her improvement.
John’s parent, Singapore
What a blessing! We’re never letting Eunice go! In 6 months, I could see my son's confidence level improving. He used to hate Maths and each time he sees the paper, a negative wall builds up.
Eunice has the right personality to not only interact, but teach especially children with special needs. She is gentle yet firm, cheerful and ready to listen and always understand, not only the child but the parent’s needs as well. John was always at ease and often looks forward to learning. Eunice is such a delight and every parents’ dream of a teacher!!
After meeting Eunice, I am at peace and can sit back and leave everything to her. Even on the eve of the PSLE Math exam, my son felt confident and unafraid of what to expect. He felt equipped and empowered. Amazing! Though Paper 2 was found to be challenging, he told me he tried his best to use the strategies that his tutor taught him. That to me is the best I can ask for in terms of positive attitude.
Eunice prepares John ahead of what the school teaches. This boosts his confidence level. He also gets a second run on the same topic and homework is no longer a chore but an opportunity to enjoy Eunice’s teaching method and strategies. There’s always room for questions with no judgement of the child’s ability, capacity or pace of learning. Eunice offers a non-threatening environment buttered with her creative strategies including materials that allows a 3D visual of concepts that cannot be immediately grasped or understood at first attempt.
What more can any parent ask for than a tutor who knows how to present concepts in the way a child can see and grasp. It’s like opening the door and allowing the child a good view of what’s inside and how things work. It’s an awesome way to learn.
I thank God for blessing Eunice with such talents so that all children can learn to enjoy Math.
Peter's mother, Singapore
Peter has been diagnosed with ADHD with motor, perceptual and sequencing issues. During his time in Singapore, Peter thoroughly enjoyed his mathematics sessions with Eunice and he seemed to be picking up basic stuff which he had difficulty previously. Eunice had been working hard with him and patiently taught him.
She was able to notice that he has underlying foundational issues in visual spatial, tracking vertically downwards and horizontally, binocular vision, sequencing, attention and visual working memory which needed to be worked upon together with his Math conceptual areas. Eunice also provided liaisons with other healthcare professionals. In addition to the Math sessions, Eunice conducted a series of Organisational and Study Skills sessions for Peter and the strategies helped him in management of time, space, study skills and many more aspects.
Within 8 months, Eunice guided Peter in improving his Mathematics grades and he could progress from his existing Support Class to the Standard class the following year!
Parent of Aaron (10 years old boy), United States, 2021
Hi Eunice, we had parent-teacher conferences via zoom with Aaron’s teachers, to go over his progress in school. During the conference for Aaron, we looked at samples of Aaron’s writing. He has made so much progress in his writing - he is way more descriptive, more substance, more creative, willingness to explore different genres and most importantly, he likes writing! He used to dread school writing assignments. We credit a lot of his progress to the sessions he had during summer with you!
Clinical Director of a Pte. Ltd. Company
Eunice has a kind and caring disposition, demeanor and natural gift with children that have complemented her. Eunice has many strengths. Her drive and “heart” for her clients and her life’s work is unquestioned. She was an inspiration and joy to work with. Her knowledge, ability to establish a rapport with children and professionalism are commendable.
