Hi Hazel! Just want to thank you for teaching and guiding me throughout this crazy period. Haha 😀 Thank you for always looking for free slots for me and for giving me your time hehe 🙂 It’s been a real joy learning Econs from you, lessons were super fun and enlightening (haha!) and I never dreaded going for lessons 🙂 Really blessed to have met you because you’re so awesome (and live so close by !!!) Have a great time and well-deserved break and I’ll see you around some time. Love, Annora.
Dear Ms Hazel, thank you for being such a great teacher!! I know I may not be the best student but thank you for ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS believing in me when I didn’t believe in myself. Thank you for always telling me how to improve myself (not just for econs). Thank you for making me believe that I might have what it takes. Thank you for motivating me & for not letting me give up on myself. You’re legit the only teacher who made me feel like studying & doing well.
Ng Chen Xuan & Loretta Su
Things that we will miss about you… 1. Getting killed by your “Questions of the week”. 2. Your super erratic teaching timings which manages to accommodate all students! 3. For simply being able to be ourselves.
Wow, time sure past when you are having fun! This year has indeed been an interesting & fun year with you. Our grades have also improved. So as the whole cycle repeats itself next year, we sincerely hope that you will be joyful & happy every day, spreading your love for econs. Remember to take care of your health, cause that’s the most important!
Hello Hello Hello! Just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for everything. You’re some econs god. Thank you for your guidance & patience with me. I’ll do my best and must get at least a B. Thanks for all the life advices too, thanks for everything!
Tampines Meridian JC 2019
Prior to getting to know of Hazel’s lessons, Economics was always one of my weaker
subjects as I found the concepts inaccessible and dry. Thankfully, with her expertise and
patience, the jargons I once found daunting were made much easier to comprehend and
I gradually developed a newly-found interest in the subject. Her customised notes
provided an in-depth analysis of the topics, and the concise yet detailed flowcharts
immensely simplified the large chunks of information. Lessons were also made much
more enjoyable and enlightening as she would frequently tie in her personal experiences
and relate them to several concepts. Through exposing us to an extensive range of
practice questions, I definitely felt much more prepared and confident in terms of
grasping the various answering techniques. With her guidance, I realised how largely
applicable Economics was in our daily lives, making it much more relatable than I initially
perceived it to be.
Apart from being a well-experienced tutor, Hazel also has a huge heart for her students,
always making an effort to prepare home-made snacks as an encouragement regardless
of how busy she was. I am extremely grateful to have been able to expand my
knowledge and build a sturdy foundation for Economics through her meticulous attention
and dedication. Without Hazel’s help, I definitely would not have been able to attain an A
in my ‘A’ Levels.
Tan Mei Shuen
I enjoyed Hazel’s lessons and found them beneficial. She makes it more straightforward
for us to remember key content for certain topics, so that it is faster for us to extract
critical information and form points when writing essays. Her lessons are conducive for
discussion and are not pressurizing. Additionally, she goes through essay questions
which test things that we may have overlooked. After attending her classes, I found that I
had an easier time remembering content and answering techniques. I definitely felt more
prepared and confident in the subject.
Hwa Chong Institution JC2 2020
I am extremely thankful to Hazel, for laying a strong foundation in my understanding of
economics. From the start of J1, Hazel has made economics come to life; she has
related real world ideas together with the concepts situated in our syllabus. Learning is
made easy through her vivid and animated stories of her childhood and growing up
years, which has helped me to remember and recall concepts easily. Her lesson plans
as well as the pace of her lesson are well thought out and carried out and I would
strongly recommend any student taking economics to sign up for her classes!
I came to Hazel with an E for Econs for CTs 2 in July and within just 3 short months
under her guidance, my results improved drastically to a B for prelims and an A for A
Levels. Hazel, being an economics teacher for a long period of time understands
economics concepts extremely well. But more importantly, she is able to identify lapses
in students’ concepts and help to fill those gaps well. Most teachers in school are
extremely knowledgeable in economics. The problem is that they are unable to lower
themselves to their students’ level. This is something that Hazel is extremely good at,
putting herself in her students shoes, which is why she is so good at helping students
identify conceptual lapses and understanding concepts appropriately.
Something I heard very often is that it is easy to get a B for economics but extremely
difficult to get an A. I agree with that sentiment to a pretty large extent. Understanding
concepts well can guarantee you a B, but understanding concepts alone never gives you
an A. For example, I always had a strong understanding of my economics concepts but
always ended up with a D or an E grade. Many of my friends who were extremely strong
in their understanding of the subject ended up with a B for their A Levels. Understanding
is not enough, the most important aspect of pushing your grades up to getting an A is
Hazel understands what Cambridge teachers and school teachers are looking for when
they mark A Levels scripts and provides frameworks for her students to follow for almost
all question types and topics. Evidently, this was extremely useful, boosting my grades
from an E in CT2 to a B for prelims in just 2 months.
I highly encourage students and parents to work with Hazel. Given her expertise in the
subject and her Exam Smart Teaching Style, as long as you are willing to work hard and
are open to listening and following her methods, getting an A for A Levels economics is
honestly not that difficult!!!
She would always provide comprehensive summaries and notes that really helped the
class to tackle economics with the correct tools and suitable approaches. Very patient
and enthusiastic, she never hesitates to clear our doubts. She would also examine our
school papers and offer advice on how to improve. Overall, her style of teaching is fun
and engaging, which I thoroughly enjoyed.
Tuition with Hazel is always something i look forward to even though econs is my worst
subject and hence most dreaded subject but Hazel always manages to break things
down for me and make everything so much easier to understand and remember. Even
though i didn't join tuition from the very start (j1) i feel like i’ve known Hazel for so long
because of how friendly and comfortable she makes me feel during tuition. I am very
happy and calm during lessons and I’m never like that when i’m doing econs in the past.
Also, not to mention she seems to have the entire econs ten years series questions in
her brain and how she always has an answer to all of my weird econs questions. Oh yes
she also has a beautiful home and she is the best baker / chef ever. I will never forget
the cheesecake I had for my first lesson. Lessons with Hazel sometimes feel like tuition
+ A levels stress relief therapy at the same time, and its really worth my one hour
journeys there to the east every single time... thank you Hazel.
Alwyn is a wonderful tutor who makes learning fun and meaningful. Being able to make difficult concepts simplified and easier to understand is one of the traits that he has as a tutor. Being friendly and approachable, I never feared asking him any questions and he would enlighten me with new answering techniques and easier ways to comprehend questions. For example, I was facing extreme difficulty understanding the chapter on superposition and even with consults in school, I was not able to complete my tutorials due to misconceptions. However with Alwyn’s help, I was able to clear my doubts and queries through his style of interactive learning and from then on I looked beyond formulas and started to understand physics on a deeper level. Not only is he well versed academically, Alwyn has the charisma to keep the atmosphere light and easy going making me look forward to lessons. Without a doubt I will recommend him to my friends and will always uphold him as the best tutor I have had.
Mendos Yeo, YIJC, H2 Physics
From an 'S' to an 'B' at A Levels
Alwyn is a fantastic tutor who has improved my physics greatly in just a year. He makes physics a lot more fun and understandable by making the lessons funny and engaging he also provides notes that are straight to the point and a lot less wordy then then notes provided in schools. He was also very patient in going through difficult questions and concepts, and made sure I understood them before moving on.
Tan Li Ting, TMJC, H2 Physics
From an 'S' to an 'A' at A Levels
Mr Leow is very experienced in the A level syllabus and is able to provide tips and tricks to tackle all the common and also more advanced questions. As a teacher, he has enriched me with knowledge and aided me not only in the field of physics, but also in life. Also, Mr Leow’s notes are extremely useful and applicable to the syllabus. Lessons are engaging, interesting and are more suited for hardworking and diligent students who can utilise his lessons to the fullest.
Joseph Trisnandi, CJC, H2 Physics
From a 'S' to an 'A' at A Levels
Mr Alwyn is someone who is a model for Physics tutors, where his explanations are simple and yet efficient. Seemingly complex concepts can easily be pictured and memorable through his teaching. With vast amounts of resources like content and papers, he is able to easily pinpoint common conceptual mistakes and common questions that students struggle to comprehend or do. He is also very well-versed with the A-Level syllabus, knowing how each question links to the current concepts learnt in the syllabus. What separates him with other tutors is how easy he is to talk to, which as a student myself find it very underrated in tutors. This makes his lessons non-stressful (which us JC students really need) and found myself liking physics out of all my subjects when initially it was a burden. As a previous student taking the A-Levels, I can strongly recommend Mr Alwyn to those who are looking for Physics Tutors.
Xie Ke Xin, RI, H2 Physics
From a 'E' to an 'A' at A Levels
Alwyn is a really dedicated and patient teacher who would go through the same concepts repeatedly with me when I am in doubt. He is aware of the common misconceptions students have and would hence caution me against them, allowing me to accurately grasp a concept in a much shorter time than I usually would by myself. Especially for challenging topics like E-field and EMI which i struggled with tremendously, Alwyn's help really made them a lot more understandable for me. Moreover, his self-compiled revision packages for every chapter not only allowed me to get adequate practice, but also ensured that I'm exposed to a wide variety of question types.
Ryan Almodial, Private Candidate, H2 Physics
From a 'U' to a 'B' at A Levels
Alwyn is such an amazing tutor. He was very encouraging and helped me to improve from practically zero knowledge to being able to do more than I could have hoped for, in the short span of 8 months. He pushed me to do my best and work hard, but was very understanding when he knew I was having a hard time and encouraged me to take breaks. He was very engaging and made sure that I knew all the material, and was able to apply it. He did not mind repeating the explanation of concepts that I have forgotten or was having a hard time grasping. His lessons were more than just academic classes, but also life lessons. His patience, friendliness and dedication has inspired me to work hard, and given me interest to teach in the future to inspire and educate the next generation.
Nicole Sim, RI, H2 Physics
From an 'S' to an 'A' at A Levels
Alwyn's enthusiasm for physics and teaching made a subject I dreaded so much, more enjoyable. His self-made summary sheets and practice questions really helped my in my revision.

Fabrianne Effendi, RI, H2 Physics
From a 'C' to an 'A' at A Levels
Alwyn is a very dedicated and encouraging teacher who will go out of the way to answer my many questions, even outside tuition time. He makes difficult Physics concepts very easy to understand, always patiently clarifying my doubts and misconceptions and giving a systematic approach to answering questions. Also, his compiled notes and new-released book “Physics in Minutes A-Level Revision Guide” served as really good last minute revision just before A levels! Thanks to Alwyn, I jumped from C to A for Physics!
Rufus Tan, CJC, H2 Physics
From a 'D' to an 'A' at A Levels
Mr Leow is a very patient and passionate teacher who is always ready and willing to clarify your doubts.

Shannon Or, NJC, H2 Physics
From a 'B' to an 'A' at A Levels
At first physics was one of my weakest subjects because I didn’t understand a lot of the concepts behind the questions but Teacher Alwyn’s clear and simple explanation of everything has helped me understand the subject much better and I even find the questions quite easy now! He was very patient in helping me clarify my many doubts and he is also a very friendly and nice teacher. Lessons with him are always fruitful and enjoyable.
Rachel Cheah, SAJC, H2 Physics
From an 'S' to an 'A' at A Levels
When I first signed up for Alwyn's class, my physics was really quite bad and I was failing my school exams. I joined later, and was a bit slow in class, but Alwyn noticed and helped me individually after classes to help me catch up. He conducted a lot of experiments in class to help me understand the concepts better and show that physics is actually quite fun! I grew to like the subject and eventually scored an 'A' at A levels! Thank you Alwyn!
Rauf Hannan, RI, H2 Physics
From a 'B' to an 'A' at A Levels
Alwyn is a very patient, knowledgeable, and fun teacher! I really enjoyed his lessons as he always did stuff that were not a repeat of the school lectures. He always made an effort to make lessons interesting with live demonstrations, and throwing in concepts that were not necessarily in the syllabus, but helped us to appreciate physics more! Would really recommend his lessons to all future physics students!
Rachel Tan, AJC, H2 Physics
From a 'U' to an 'B' at A Levels
Physics was my worst subject by far, I could not understand and apply the concepts at all. After seeking help from Alwyn, I improved tremendously. He was very patient in explaining the concepts over and over again to me, and he never gave up on me. His notes are concise and very useful in helping me absorb the key concepts. He also gave a lot of additional practice material to make sure I had enough practice before my exams.
Vicki Tan, RI, H1 Physics
From a 'C' to an 'A' at A Levels
I've always found physics to be very difficult to understand, and after my J1 year, I dropped to H1. Even after that, I still found the subject hard. Mr Leow did not have a H1 class, but he still took me in privately and he helped me to secure an 'A' for physics, my worst subject! He was very patient in explaining the concepts to me, and was also to make lessons very enjoyable.
Jovan Tan, ASRJC, H2 Physics
From an 'S' to a 'B' at A Levels
Alwyn was a dedicated and knowledgeable tutor. He was willing to go the extra mile to answer questions that I had even though they may have been out of syllabus, this in turn made me feel a greater sense of freedom and interest in learning about the various concepts and topics which made the tutoring sessions more effective.
Alwyn’s notes and compilation of test questions were also extensive and useful when it came to preparing for exams as the resources he provided covered a wide spectrum of topics while remaining targeted at helping his students gain a strong understanding of concepts and familiarity with exam questions.

Mr Leow taught me H2 Physics.
Having very poor work ethic and accumulated numerous doubts unclarified few months before the JC 1 Promotional Examination, I met Mr Leow and my life has changed thereafter.
Mr Leow analysed my unique situation very carefully and thoroughly and, offered me effective crash courses to help me pass the Promotional Examination within very short period of time. Because of this, I progressed to JC 2 without having to leave the college as repeating JC 1 will cause my age to exceed the maximum age allowed for international students.
Due to my weak foundation in Mathematics and Physics, Mr Leow divided each tuition session into different parts to help me revisit previous topics while teaching me new content. However, I still struggled tremendously because of pressure from other subjects and lack of confidence to do well.
However, Mr Leow, a highly fervent and a more than competent tutor, has proven himself to be able to turn the tide. He did not give up on me but continued to train me to learn the fundamentals, appreciate the technique when approaching different types of questions and understand the reasoning behind why these questions are solved in particular ways.
Other than that, his accurate understanding of the scope of Alevel Examinations and strategic planning of the lessons have benefited me greatly. He was also willing to answer further questions on WhatsApp and took the initiatives to search for and share with me relevant resources and materials suited for my level of ability.
Beyond class, Mr Leow is an empathetic figure and a supportive presence who does not mind sacrificing his own time to put himself in my shoes and give constructive advice when my academic performance is plummeted or when life is turbulent. This is especially so when I was diagnosed some chronic disease before June holiday in JC 2 which caused me to be absent from school for several weeks and made me think to quit. However, Mr Leow let me know that he was always there to support me and motivate me to persevere until the end.
Looking back, I never regret joining Mr Leow’s class. It is not only about being amazed by his intelligence and thrilled by my actual Alevel result despite a humble beginning, but also the acquisition of an invaluable gift that accompanied me for the past 1 year, namely, the gain of can-do spirit and the braveness to never say never.
To date, Mr Leow is still willing to meet me despite his busy schedule. Every time, he brings with me insights about life and ways to excel in life. I highly appreciate the opportunity to be one of his students and his effort to impact my life in every positive way possible.
