STORIES WORTH SHARING
OUR STUDENTS AT TUTTEE
Tuttee is not just a "Tuition Center". We inspire, motivate and guide our students. Science and Mathematics, contrary to popular belief, can be interesting and even integrated into every part of our daily life. Yes, academics, studies, exams are important. But we would never advise to engage in sciences just because of that- enjoy the whole learning process, sciences are worth more than just cramming and drilling. We, at Tuttee don't spoon-feed. We don't train study machines that absorb information without questioning where it comes from. Keep asking "Why" like a scientist does. We are not just your teachers, but also your mentors, your role models, most importantly your friends to be with you for your whole journey, offering support and guidance.
STORIES WITH OUR STUDENTS
INSPIRATION & MOTIVATION
ERNEST / IGCSE TRIPLE A* IN SCIENCE
Develop a positive attitude towards Science, in the long run, it isn't as boring as it first seems
Ernest joined us when he was in Year 9. He found Science boring and not interesting. Thus, he wasn't working at his maximum potential, at school and several times, had been thinking about dropping the subject. After our first trial session, though, we knew that if we used an exam-oriented approach with heavy drilling sessions, it wouldn't work for Ernest. Hence, we wanted to at least first give him an impression of what Science is, how we planned to approach this subject and what we were expecting to learn. Over time, Ernest developed a more positive attitude towards the subject and grew to look forward to Science as his favorite class at school. In the end, we are more than glad to see Ernest achieving triple A* in his Science for his IGCSE examination. Alongside his parents, we are expectedly proud of him.
KRISTIE / IGCSE TRIPLE A* IN SCIENCE
Boost your self-confidence, believe in yourself, the sky's the limit
Kristie joined us when she was at her last year of the IGCSE curriculum. She was doing average at school for her Chemistry. Given that her school is very well-known and intense, she had been facing a lot of pressure from teachers at school, and her peers. She was doing alright, but the school wanted to push her further. At one point, her school teacher suggested her to drop Chemistry, because internal exams had expected her getting a C grade in the public exam. We don't believe in this. Tuttee expresses the need for each individual to trust themselves and know what they are capable of. Never waste time to compare, and don't put energy into competing. All we need, is to do our best. With this, we wanted to give Kristie a boost on her confidence. We knew she could secure an A in the exam, even if she couldn't believe it at the time. She was (and still is) hard-working and studious. It was the pressure that was getting to her. Nervousness played a large part in hindering her potential. But we worked with her, and she made it, receiving an A* in her Chemistry, not only proving to her teachers, but also to herself what she is capable of. This gave her a major boost of confidence- so she knows what she can do. And now she is pursuing GCE A-level Chemistry to continue her learning journey.
JOHN / GCE A-LEVEL 4A*s
It's never too late, strive all your best, work the hardest to achieve your goal.
John was a local DSE student, planning to apply as a private candidate for GCE IAL examination in Hong Kong. He was hoping to pursue his university studies in UK. He was hesitating to see which exam board would be better for him. After a long discussion with John and a careful assessment of his performance, we supported his decision to sit for the examination, warning him that his workload will be doubled, but we knew he was a hard worker, and his negligence would pay off. He received excellent results for his GCE AS exam with papers 100% full UMS Score. He started to wonder and consider entering the HKU MBBS program. He wants to, and he knows it is no easy walk in the park. But we encouraged him to give it a shot because we believe he is and he will be a great medical student. And true to what we knew, John had received an admission offer from HKU MBBS program. We are more than proud of him.
MICHAEL / GCE A-LEVEL 4As
Don't be shy with unleashing your child's potential, excel and keep them busy with what they're good at.
Michael came to us when he was a F4 student at a local school. He was very interested in Science, and he wanted to learn and explore more. The local DSE curriculum couldn't fulfill what he wanted. Thus his parents approached us to see if he could learn and sit for the GCE examination, no matter what the results will be, given that he was still a bit young to sit for it. After a careful and detailed planning, our focus was to cover and explore more knowledge over Science with Michael. This was a different case, so securing a top performance wasn't our primary goal. We want to broaden his horizons in the field of Science through GCE A-Levels. And Michael worked wonderfully, impressing all of his teachers at Tuttee and at his school. And when the time came, we suggested to his parents, to give him a chance for going into GCE A-Levels. They agreed, and Michael certainly didn't disappoint- Michael received 3 As for his A-Level certificate at Form 5.
HONGRUI / IGCSE A IN BIOL
Learning is limitless, widen your perspective and knowledge, but don't forget to enjoy what you are learning
Hongrui came to us when he was Year 6. His parents had found him exceptionally passionate and enthusiastic towards Biology. He went through several different IGCSE-level Biology textbooks and learned most of the chapters by himself, a true icon for self-motivation. His parents were impressed and wanted him to advance further on this subject, knowing his potential. We worked with Hongrui to bring his Science to a whole new level. We could see his interest in the subject and we focused a bit more on the exam side, drilling through past papers and filling out questions, given that he had mastered most of the concepts from the chapters already. And we are glad to know Hongrui received his A grade for his IGCSE Biology at Year 6. And now we are widening his scope not only to Biology, but also open to Chemistry and Physics, since we know he is capable of mastering the triumvirate of all the Sciences.
WORDS FROM OUR STUDENT AND PARENT
DESMOND / PLKCKY / IGCSE
非常謝謝你🙏🏻！他只跟了你四個半月，由邊緣 B 到今天的成績，幸好有你教他，揾到他的弱點加以提点和教導，又操練他的考試技巧，所以真的非常感謝。希望他從今次的考試學會怎樣裝備自己，在 IB 更努力！Thank you so much!
GIGI / PLKLFC / DSE
Thank you for your teaching Colin. We are deeply impressed by your excellent presentation skills! 👍 Gigi really needs keen passion and interest to get highest score in exam!
ZOE / SIS / IGCSE
I feel that the teaching here is really clear and concise. All the teachers are really passionate about the subjects and want the best for all their students. They never say no to a question and actually encourage asking questions, something which I really appreciate as I always feel slightly scared to ask questions. They always re-explain topics which you aren’t familiar with so that you don’t fall behind and get even more confused in other topics. Furthermore, they sometimes spend a little time teaching out of the syllabus so you can see where these concepts you’re learning can be applied in the future and in the real world which has made me appreciate chemistry and biology more than I already had. Their constant support has helped me gain the confidence I needed to face my IGCSE’s. M
KITTY / KCCIS / IGCSE
Hi Colin! I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to all the tutors at tuttee for helping me achieve an AA in my science double award IGCSE exam. I honestly thought I was going to fail ahaha, but thanks to the help of all the tuttee team, I was able to achieve better than the grades I was expecting 😁 (I was predicted a BC, and got DD in my mocks). I have come such a long way in a few months and that’s all thanks to you guys!!
