Kids these days don't get it easy, they have to learn these advanced formulas, languages and science in a short 6-year span. PSLE home tuition is as popular as O level or A level tuition. Worried parents often study together with their children in the hope of being able to coach them along the way, sometimes to no avail as the questions are too difficult to solve. From 2021, MOE has set a new scoring system to emphasize more on individual performance than relative to their peers.

TutorCity recommended Ms Kristen Zuriel who taught me for 1.5 years for the final lap of my IB (International Baccalaureate) journey. We focused on Eng Lang & Lit, & ToK (Theory of Knowledge). In addition, she assisted me even in Internal Assessments for subjects like Business Management. She taught me concepts & strategies which pulled my grades up. Her plethora of different study techniques would work for any student resistant to studying, or, to the subject. She makes difficult concepts easy-to-understand. Her dedication meant turning up at wee hours & sitting through gruelling hours for consecutive days to achieve my personal goals. Beyond academics, she taught me valuable life lessons & inspired through personal example to make my mark in society.
