Mr. Alex Xu
My Biology in j1 was a consistent U and then I joined the Learners Lodge which provided me with notes and practices which helped me to improve from a U to a C and eventually an A in my A levels. Mr Alex Xu helped me greatly as well as he gave me his own handwritten notes which I could read up on before the exams and he was always prompt to reply my texts.

Mr Alex Xu is a great motivation for me to do well. He showed a deep understanding in the topics he taught. He presents key points in a clear and explicit way, making complex ideas easier to understand, clearing any question I had unanswered. Mr Alex is a teacher that devotes much time for his class, continuously giving us extra lesson even though he had a tight schedule. Thanks Mr Alex for always being there to encourage us through tough times.

Hi Mr Alex Xu, thank you for being my bio tutor for the past 2 years! I’m really grateful that you have always believed in my abilities even though my results were not stellar in school😅 I had a lot of fun in your lessons even when the topics were dry or when all of us were dying from sleep deprivation in the morning :D I’m also thankful that you would entertain my questions and re-explain concepts when I didn’t understand them! Your summary notes and beautifully hand-drawn mindmaps were really helpful too 😆 thank you for the A grade!

The funny antics and iconic trademarks of Mr Alex Xu’s lessons were a highlight every lesson I attended, the hilarious ways utilised to help us memorise keywords such as ‘Entry Passwords’ definitely made his lessons deeply imprinted in my mind. The concise notes provided and the clear explanations and answering tips provided by him were very helpful in my Bio learning as well, and eventually allowed me to get an A for bio. I’m very thankful :)

Thank you Mr Alex Xu for the wonderful lessons that I was able to understand and apply in questions. Even though I did not do well for my p4, you told me not to think about it anymore and I tried my very best to ace my other papers. In the end, I jumped to A from B thanks to you:)

Dear Mr Alex Xu, thank you for all the support you always gave the class and for never giving up on us regardless of our results or no matter how tired we are. I really appreciate the private messages to clear queries or to ask how we are doing for bio :))

Thank you, Mr Alex Xu, for giving me so much support in my H2 biology for A levels, I’m generally weak in bio and you helped me improve by simplifying complicated biology concepts leading to my results exceeded my expectations. Not only that, you constantly reassured me that A level grades are not everything but my plans after that no matter the results are always what matters. Not only you helped alleviate my exam stress but also reassured me that everything is going to be alright. Thank you, Mr Alex, for making a difference In my A level journey as a teacher, mentor and friend 😉

Thank you, Mr Alex Xu! I am very happy to be able to achieve an A for Biology as I was doing badly in prelims and school. I lacked confidence in Biology in school and feared I would do badly for A levels. But under your guidance and teaching, I was able to achieve an A for Bio! Thank You, Mr Xu!

Mr Alex Xu made learning Biology fun and was very patient in explaining concepts. I looked forward to every Biology lesson and felt very comfortable clarifying any of my doubts with Mr Xu. He was a very supportive teacher who cares about his students.

Mr Alex Xu has been a great Biology teacher and I’m very thankful for him. He is very encouraging and makes time to answer all our questions and doubts until we understand. He is very supportive and gives feedback on how we can do better. I’m very grateful to Mr Xu for helping me with Biology!

Hi Mr Alex Xu, It has been a crazy journey for me for bio in JC with me struggling to even pass. But Mr Xu gave me the opportunity to believe in myself and to always never give up. He has one of the amazing teachers I have ever had, always trying his best to ensure we grasp the concepts well and we are able to do questions. I still remember how I use to mull over my results but he always brought me up and made me stronger always taking time after lesson to teach me and explain to me until I could get it. Though I did not get my intended result, the way how my grades shot up from a fail even until my last j2 exam I can’t thank Mr Xu enough. Thank you, sir, and hope to meet u soon.

I hated Biology to the core before joining Mr Alex’s class. Even reading content was frustrating for me because I did not believe I could do well in the subject. Mr Alex gave us more than just notes and worksheets, he gave us moral support and encouragement all along the way. Even though it was a short few months that he took over our class for, he took the effort to always check that we were understanding what he taught and consistently asked for feedback to tailor to our needs. Those months that he taught us were the most stressful months as Prelims and As were round the corner but with his help, we were learning at a good pace and for me, I was catching up with everything I had missed out on for the past 1.5 years in a steady manner. Lessons were never a bore despite them being conducted on a weekday night which can get pretty stressful from all the mugging. Thanks to Mr Alex’s dedicated teaching, encouragement and plentiful resources, I managed to get an A for Biology despite never once achieving anything higher than an E for the subject in JC. People who say that Bio is just about memorising are not always correct! Nobody believed in my Bio grades but Mr Alex did and that made all the difference.

Mr Alex is a very dedicated Biology teacher, always willing to go the extra mile, marking the endless stream of papers I had submitted to him. He is very approachable in and out of the classroom, always full of energy, delivering his lessons with enthusiasm. Under his guidance, I could understand question requirements more clearly and scored better grades.

Mr Alex Xu is a very engaging teacher, allowing students to learn via numerous student-teacher interactions. Together with his extensive resources, he can elucidate difficult concepts quickly and help students to register critical information with ease. His bubbly and outgoing personality makes him easy to approach and friendly.

Mr Alex is my Biology tutor at Learners Lodge. He conducts lessons with enthusiasm. His skillfulness in illustrating concepts allow us to see the big pictures as well as understand smaller details. He is someone who willingly shares his knowledge, cares and guides his students.
