Moreover, Ms Lim shines in more ways than just her teaching style. Equipped with a gregarious personality, Ms Lim always injects laughter and joy into every class, be it relating to her students in ways no other teacher can, or making silly chemistry- related jokes to liven up what many would see as a dry subject. Ms Lim is also very understanding to her students and has never failed to treat us with kindness and respect, even though we may not deserve it sometimes. Ms Lim is also very motivational and an all around inspiring woman who continues to put her heart and soul into every class and most importantly, every student.
A strong and independent that has not only taught me many many chemical concepts, but many life lessons that I can take away after my time in RMSS. Ms Lim is truly one of the most inspirational Teachers I’ve ever had in my life and I wish her the best in all her future endeavours.
My grades also jumped from F9 to a C6 within a few months, and then improved to a B3. Mr Tham always encourages me to do better and continue to work hard towards better grades.
He also encourages me that no matter how undesirable one's grades is, it is still reversible as long one works hard. He also encourages me to come for extra lesson to clear any doubts.
Furthermore, he also teaches me super creative and fun methods to remember certain science concepts which are really effective.
I am really grateful to be taught by Mr Tham.
Thank you, Mr Tham, for your help and moral support for these 2 years!
Being a student of his for my entire Lower Secondary education, he was the teacher who he sparked my interest for Physics. He always has the tendency to use weird and unusual methods to help us memorise the content easily, which is really helpful. He makes Physics lessons really fun too.
The only reason why I made it to Pure Science in Upper Sec, is mainly due to Mr Tham. Before joining RMSS, I was always struggling with my Science.
However, ever since I joined Mr Tham’s class, my Science had improved tremendously. Still remembering the day before my Sec 2 end of year exam, I would bug Mr Tham to help me go through the entire textbook.
Even though it was troublesome, he still spent some time after the revision class to go through the topics with me. It was totally worth it as I eventually acquired an A2 and was just 1% behind an A1.
For my Sec 3 year, I was shocked that he stopped teaching Physics classes. My grades would then drop and go back to its usual inconsistent self.
However, being my most crucial year, Mr Tham started to teach Physics classes again. I immediately swapped to his class as I believed that he will be able to help improve my Physics grades. It certainly did, currently my physics grades is facing a positive trend, scoring better grades after each consecutive major internal school exams. I am really grateful to have been taught by him.
Thank you, Mr Tham!
Even though Mr Phua has very high expectations for his students, I know that it is all for the good of us. After almost 3 years of attending his tuition classes, I realised he is actually a committed and dedicated teacher who is willing to go the extra mile to help us excel in our math. Without a doubt, my math has improved significantly from a B4 in Sec 1 to A1 and so has the class on an overall. Thus, I am really thankful for that.
In addition to his hard work and dedication, Mr Phua is also a really good teacher! He is able to implement effective techniques in helping us improve our math, such as teaching us simple ways to remember formulas and the special angle table. One example of his extra policy is the 12am homework. It is unique to his classes only, and this technique is able to better help us complete our math homework in time before 2359 and also drill us sufficiently so that we would always be on our toes. In addition, he would also spend time out of work hours to check our answers and also send us his answers to the questions, so that we can refer to them to check our work. All of this was done out of the good will of him and I respect him for that.
All in all, I would really like to take this opportunity to thank him for his constant help and guidance in helping the class improve their math. Thank you so much Mr Phua for your tutorage all these years. I would never have been able to achieve such results if not for your help!
My math definitely improved a lot from your classes; i also learned to be more time conscious and conscientious too! Even the presentations, which i hated and was quite nervous about at first, made me more confident of both expressing myself and my knowledge.
You were generous with both your time, effort and even money (pizzas, starbucks cards,watches, and so on…) and you have my heartfelt gratitude for everything u have done for me and S4A. Everything you did was in our interest, including 12am homework and tests, but I will never forget how interesting your classes are, and i hope your efforts will also reach and help many more in the future!
The thought of only being able to attend your class less than 10 more times now is really quite depressing, but i think now is not the time to be feeling down, especially when o levels is starting next week HAHA. I’ll make sure to try my best and do you proud, hopefully i’ll be back with A1s for both maths and probably even a L1R5 of 6 (fingers crossed). Sooo yeah i have many more things on my mind but you said not to type an essay hence i’ll have to end it off here. Thank you for all your efforts in grooming us as not only math students, but also (adults?) and having fun with us like you were our friend at the same time. Hope to see you around if i pass by Bishan in the future (or even join RMSS during JC HAHA)!
Mr Phua is also very patient. Whenever i don’t understand a question or don’t know how to do it, he will try his very best to explain it such that i will be able to understand. He also always goes out of his way to provide us with extra lessons if we still do not grasp the concepts of a particular topic. He also sometimes asks us to come for class earlier for us to do tests. He conducts the tests as a form of indication of what we still aren’t very good at which in the long run was very helpful as i could narrow down what i should focus on. They have also pushed me to try even harder so that i could try being the top for the tests.
To me, he is a very good and understanding teacher. In the event we are unable to make it for a class, he will ask us to come back to replace the class so as to make sure we don’t miss out on anything. He also tries to motivate us in many different ways. One example would be the CNY ang bao challenge where he gives us ins to do and whoever can do it within that certain amount of time gets an ang bao. Another way he is understanding is by giving us ample time for the 12am hw which he makes us do. The 12am hw is when we have to complete all the hw we were given that lesson by 12am on that day and take a picture of it and send it to him via WhatsApp. He would always give us reasonable amount of time to do the hw. If he were to give us a lot of qns for hw that day, he would extend the deadline to 12am the next day. Though i didn’t really like it because every saturday, i have tuition for the whole day so doing the 12am hw after my whole day of tuition is very difficult and usually i ended up leaving blanks because of mental block. However in the long run, it is very helpful because he will check through our work and tell us if there are any mistakes and it also forces to actually do the homework for ourselves.
If i had the option, i would definitely wish Mr Phua had a class teaching JC math because if i were to go to JC, i would definitely join his class again.
THANK YOU Mr Phua for guiding me through my math for 4 years and putting up with my constant missed classes due to school related duties.
His lessons are 3 things.
1. Always helpful
Be it learning new topics or concepts, revising old ones, doing test papers, his lessons have helped me in having a deeper understanding of the topic as well as learning something new about it too. Without Mr Phua’s classes, I know I would have much more difficulty learning and understanding them.
2. Always engaging
I enjoy coming to lessons as Mr Phua makes them surprisingly fun and engaging by sharing some personal stories and anecdotes and making jokes with his students during class. It’s surprising because I’m sure others dread going for tuition. Yet, I look forward to Raymond’s, wanting to learn and improve even more in my math.
3. Always cold
Mr Phua’s classes are NEVER warm! So be sure to always bring a thick (winter) jacket to every class. The cold environment is the reason I don’t take heat for granted. Back in Katong, stepping out of the building, into the heat and feeling relieved that our toes and fingers had not fallen off was always a fun way to end class.
I am very grateful that my parents had encouraged me to take up this class as without Mr Phua’s lessons, I highly doubt I would have passed A Math. Without his teachings, dedication to his students, constant nagging for us to come earlier and/or stay back for revision, 12am homework, I would not have seen improvement in my math.
Mr Phua’s words may be blunt sometimes, but he only wants what’s best for his students. Him forcing students to stay behind and work on homework not completed, scoldings when students do not do their work, are all signs pointing to just how much he cares for his students.
Thank you Mr Phua for my almost 2 years at Raymond’s in your class. They are 2 years I won’t regret. You have somehow made math fun and tuition enjoyable to attend. I am saddened to leave your class, but I won’t forget your teachings and the lessons you’ve taught me.
Even though Mr Phua can be really scary sometimes and I'll be so afraid to ask him questions, he's still a great teacher afterall:) He is very strict when it comes to doing work, (so please do his homework especially 12am hw yah because it's really helpful) which pushes me to be more disciplined and study harder. He also cares a lot about the details during presentation, (e.g The difference between big K and small k omg) which again helps us to improve in our presentation of work. And do memorise all the exponential graph because if you happen to forget how to draw them, Mr Phua will draw it on your palm with his thick marker and ask you to show his drawing to the class. :') However, Mr Phua's class is enjoyable too! He'll play kpop songs (e.g blackpink-ddu du ddu du, bts-fake love etc) just to entertain us, and buy us all sorts of nice food during special occasions.
Mr Phua may not be the best teacher, but he is a responsible and strict teacher who has his own ways of teaching students. I would have continued to hate math if I had not met him in sec 2. Thank you for your guidance Mr Phua:)
RMSS is the perfect tuition for people who struggle with their subjects, ranging from Primary to Secondary to Junior College. I have never, ever regretted coming to this centre. Although I am unable to continue at RMSS in Secondary One next year, I am extremely contented. And I will never forget this place. Thank you RMSS!

Beyond his teaching methods, Mr Ang also understands his students. He never fails to put himself in our shoes, and understands when we need a break, or need some extra time to process information. Mr Ang understands that learning is not about rote. Memorisation of a model answer or formula, but rather of true understanding and relaxed fun, the latter of which he tries his best to provide in his lessons, given the frantic pace of our education system. Through this, Mr Ang becomes and often much-needed breath of fresh air in our learning, mine included.
He puts in all of his effort into each and every student, no matter the grades each one produces. I have never been talented at science since day one, but Mr Ang has never failed to do his best to help me make sense of confusing science concepts. He truly goes above and beyond in trying to help his students in every way possible, from offering extra sessions when we need it, to compiling questions and notes into topically arranged books.
Science was made fun and relatable thanks to Mr Ang, and I will be eternally grateful for having met a teacher like him.
