Was I self-motivated? Not really at first. I was deeply traumatized by math because lessons in school were too fast and I couldn’t keep up. I ended up neglecting it so much I didn’t pass a single math exam the whole year in J1. In the end, after going through Mr tan’s lessons and going through the fundamentals. I now have enough faith to say that maths is my favourite subject and the only one I can really say I’ll get a good grade for. My parents didn’t force me to attend and I can gladly say if I had the chance I would have joined earlier because the experience here has helped so much in making math easier to understand. To be honest, when I still failed my math prelims last year in the time I joined (around last year June holidays), my results jumped from a single digit to a low forty which is honestly a huge jump. I think that the reason why most students here can score good grades in A level is not only because of their intelligence but also because of all the support they receive as well as the motivation to do well after being finally able to do the questions. If they were like me, the feeling of finally understanding a topic, to finally be able to answer the questions that previously looked like impossible puzzles, it was so satisfying that they naturally get motivated enough to start studying the subject on their own. It’s not just about smart per say, it’s like a combination between smarts and nurtured self-motivation. In my opinion for tuition fees, I feel that it could be cheaper? But the services are well worth the price they helped me out when I was failing and got me to a level where I can confidently say I will do well for my A-levels and I guess that’s what matters at the end of the day.
