TESTIMONIALS

Opening QuotesHi Mr Daniel Yeo,
I just wanted to tell you that I tremendously enjoyed your physics lesson despite me initially joining your class as I was failing all my physics exams. Your patience and passion for teaching and physics really helped me understand and grow to love the subject :”) Thank you for taking time even outside of class to help clarify my doubts. I really really enjoyed being in your class. Closing Quotes

Opening Quotes Hi Mr Daniel Yeo! I just wanted to drop a message to thank you for teaching me Physics the past year! I first attended your lesson in the first few months of JC2, when I felt that I could barely catch up in school and needed help. Looking back, I’m so glad that I made the decision to join your class. You made Physics concepts so much easier to understand and digest. Maybe it was the way you illustrated the concepts to us, or how you explained in detail how everything worked and never left anything out, that made previously confusing concepts clear as day. Besides that, through you, I not only learnt how to score well on my Examinations, I also genuinely grew to appreciate Physics so much more. I love that you were always so passionate and enthusiastic about what you were teaching. Every time you explained something, the smile on your face told me just how fascinated you were by science. Slowly, I started to realise that Physics can be observed all around us, just as you pointed out to us. I’m so grateful to have you as my educator, Mr Yeo! Closing Quotes

Opening Quotes Mr Daniel Yeo is honestly one of the best teachers I ever had. Before joining his tuition, I always struggled to grasp the physics concepts and content well. However, his classes really helped me understand physics on a much deeper level and link topics together in a much more effective way. His notes are concise and straight to the point which is very relevant to the current syllabus. Also, even when I messed up my physics practical he still believed in me and encouraged me to push on and I did!!

Thanks, Mr Yeo for also answering physics questions outside the classroom especially in the wee hours!  Closing Quotes

Marie Tan, Dunman High School (2019)

Opening Quotes Firstly, I came in the end of J1 with a ‘U’ in Physics and jumped to an A through Mr Daniel Yeo. I cannot thank him enough. Partially because I didn’t like the subject due to its rigour. However, Mr Yeo’s style of teaching was moderately paced such that challenges faced made me improve rather than give up. He is very approachable and patient, I would add on, hardworking as well in regards to helping his students in grasping concepts and applying them. Knowing that visual aids helped his students, he would show us videos, draw graphs, use analogies (quite funny for me) do whatever he can to make sure we understand. Work with Mr Yeo definitely will see a change. Closing Quotes Tan Yi Zhen, Meridian Junior College (2018)

 

Mr Daniel Yeo and Joey ShiOpening Quotes Before joining Mr Yeo’s lessons, I struggled to grasp the concepts of physics. However, after I had attended Mr Yeo’s lesson, I could better understand the concepts as he would simplify them and go through them repeatedly. He would also provide us with resources such as concept summaries and extra practices which allowed me to improve greatly. This is because I could expose myself to more questions and train my answering techniques for exam questions. Besides that, Mr Yeo’s dedicated and friendly personality allowed me to approach him for consultations to clarify any doubts I had. I am thankful and grateful for Mr Yeo for being such a caring teacher and allowing me to achieve my desired grades for my A levels. :D Closing Quotes

Opening Quotes BIG THANKS to Mr. Daniel Yeo for being patient, passionate and thorough as a Physics tutor. His notes are concise and bring out the essence in each topic so revising is a breeze, and he is very approachable if you ever have any doubts. Sitting for A Levels, I was the least anxious for my physics paper and I can only be grateful to have had such a supportive tutor to back me up :D Closing Quotes

Advait Bharat Deshpande, Victoria Junior College (2018)

Opening Quotes Thank you Mr Yeo for being such a patient and thorough teacher during my short span of time in Learner’s Lodge! Not only did you fill up my knowledge gaps, you also went out of your way to specify the different concepts needed for each topic, making it easier for us to revise nearing A Levels. Thank you for helping me reach my fullest potential, Mr Yeo! Closing Quotes

Opening Quotes Thank you, Mr. Daniel Yeo, for your unwavering support and dedication towards teaching. You go above and beyond helping us by ensuring that we do not just understand our content but appreciate it as well. You keep us well informed about Physics as well as keep us up-to-date with the latest inventions, and your passion for the subject rubs on us. While we come in hoping to better understand physics, you ensure that we better understand the process of learning and appreciate its importance. Through your help and your extremely helpful resources which provide us with many different question types, we are exposed to a broad range of concepts and possible applications, all of which definitely help us answer questions better. That alongside your clear and articulate explanations during lessons, through your notes and your website, has tremendously helped us. Thank you! Closing Quotes

Shubhangam Rajesh Prasad, Victoria Junior College (2018)

Opening Quotes Thank you, I did well in my A Levels, and I think it’s very fitting to thank you for everything, seeing as how my Physics did make drastic improvements after attending your lessons :)

I owe much to the notes that you wrote and the tutorial exercises that you provided. It was almost all I referred to for revision and practice in the lead up to the A Levels and I’m not over exaggerating when I say that it really saved my grades.

Especially helpful was the final compilation of notes of every chapter that we were given in the final months before As. The MCQ questions really helped me identify my misconceptions and pointed out trick questions and pitfalls in every chapter. That boosted my confidence and understanding significantly.

Also, thank you for answering my barrage of questions at odd hours. I asked a lot of pretty stupid questions and thank you for taking the time to explain each and every one of them till I understood all my mistakes.

Thanks for everything Mr Daniel Yeo!

(Yes lah, went from E to A 👌🏼💯) Closing Quotes
