I was sitting on the fence for a long time as I am a private candidate this year, deciding if I should take A Levels seriously this year or retake again next year, hence joining illum.e late. I decided to have a trial class and my teacher happens to Mr Liew Shan Hao and after that trial class, I knew I needed to join immediately to still stand a fighting chance for this year’s A Levels. I find Mr Liew’s teaching extremely good as his explanation is so so so good. Even if he is explaining something that he knows it’s tough for us to understand, he would use examples to give us a better visualisation which helps us to fully understand what he is saying. I also appreciate that he is dedicated to his job, he even gave me an extra class as he knew I needed more help than the rest as I was unclear about many things due to joining late. This man definitely deserves to win the rewards or else it’s rigged haha. Thanks Mr Liew and have a wonderful teacher’s day, ps for the late review submission :> - Benjamin

Mr. Liew is an amazing teacher who consistently uses engaging and captivating examples to facilitate our comprehension of challenging concepts. (nuke example hehe) Additionally, Mr. Liew consistently assesses the essays I submit meticulously, giving me with valuable feedback that greatly enhanced my essay-writing skills. He also proficient in both English and Chinese(I think he also knows some Thai), and could teach me in my mother tongue when to am struggling to fully understand his topic, allowing me to better grasp the topic he is teaching and enriches my learning experience. Moreover, the emphasis he places on crafting easy and convincing examples, as well as synthesizing the examples has allowed me to approach various types of questions with greater confidence. This has benefitted me hugely as my school curriculum does not teach me how to formulate convincing examples during exams when they are most needed. This aspect of his teaching is incredibly beneficial and I am profoundly grateful to have him as my mentor. Thank you Mr Liew!!! :))) lol

My english teacher is Mr Andre and I really enjoy his lessons tremendously. Every lesson, he makes it a point to focus on a few weaker areas that many students tend to struggle with. I find his lessons very helpful and I feel more confident whenever I attempt questions, specifically comprehension questions. He is a patient and caring teacher and i’m so glad to have him as my english tutor:)

I just joined illum.e, and I had my first trial class during the Sunday slot (Mr Liew). Even though my time in illum.e has not been very long, it has been very fulfilling. Normally, I would go for more trial classes for other centres for comparison, but for once, there was no need to. Mr Liew’s classes are organised, straightforward and his teaching style is clear, consistent and professional. Even his personal consults still hold that same level of effectiveness in the short span of time that he has. Mr Liew is able to guide his students to be a critical thinker, and will analyse the question types, keywords with us. Mr Liew’s ability to clear my doubts for the AQ section and the essay writing (especially the structure) was 💯 not only that, he encourages thinking on a deeper level and is able to facilitate multifaceted analysis specific to the GP topic during class. Mr Liew 🆙🆙🆙

I was failing History and Social Studies before joining Mr. Ivan's humanities class at illume. His interactive teaching style and real-life examples have made these subjects so much easier. I scored an A1 in both History and Social Studies for my examinations.

I have great appreciation for Mr. Chia and Mr. Yeo, who have been my tutors for the past year. Although I had good teachers in school, my General Paper wasn't my strongest subject. With their patient guidance, I learned about the various areas and pitfalls to avoid when studying and doing GP. They helped me become more aware of my mistakes, and I worked hard to correct them. Additionally, they showed remarkable resilience in dealing with my friends and I (thank u chers hehe), and continued to teach us with passion despite any challenges that arose.

I still remember that day, clear like a shard of crystal shedding. It was someday in October of 2022, an afternoon when the leaves' dews reflected the bright sun's brilliant rays. The taunting row of “73”s on my report book laughed at my nonchalant self – that if I worked harder on it on my own, I would eventually get there and stride my way towards the coveted diamond ranks. Yet, I was lost, a clueless adventurer in search of the North Star — finding that last shard shouldn't be far. After a few days of scavenging through brochures like a hopeful archaeologist, I found that last remnant of crystal, the one elusive turquoise jade that was setting me back from unlocking that treasure chest. It is the page you’re seeing here, right on this treasure map, where I unraveled the secrets, I longed to learn. Lessons here were the sweet mixture of informative and intriguing, coupled with the relevance of its contents with our 21st-century society – the perfectly curated formula to success. From essays to the once-dreaded comprehension to even oral and listening comprehension, illum.e covers every nook and cranny of the English syllabus comprehensively and meticulously. Besides lecture-style teaching, Mr. Chia and his TAs also provide personal feedback and consultations for individual improvement for me to polish my literary and interpretation abilities. This methodology was certainly the one factor that I missed in my previous attempts at laboriously slaving and digging for that last crystal. I've finally attained some level of mastery on this quest, my pen sharpened, ready to clinch and defeat the monstrous national examination, conquer the desired ranks and scream victory in the language I adore. (a pen is mightier than a sword, right?) Moreover, the variety of question types and essay types we are exposed to in illum.e enabled me to discover and rediscover my strengths and develop my weaknesses in the realm of the language. The smorgasbord of activities I had my hands on allowed me to step out of my comfort zone and try new techniques and question types for essays. Past obstinate me would simply dismiss claims that expository writing is up my lane – I’d always preferred crafting narratives (which illum.e too developed me in!) – and this shift in mindset can be easily attributed to illum.e’s pedagogy and Mr. Chia's effective teaching. Besides the quality of illum.e's lessons and notes, classes never fail to make my early morning worth. Mr. Chia's humour and enthusiasm in teaching has enabled me to appreciate the English language as more than mere alphabets forcefully punched together, an uncanny force, but melodies of words strung together to stitch up a piece of music. Even in the most tiring of mornings, I will never escape into slumbers and dream of another utopia — this is the dream I live in, the utopia I belong to. Past me was the antithesis of my present self. Without the pivotal aid of illum.e’s classes and tutors, I am certain that my grades would maintain the status quo, my blunt pen still helplessly scribbling the fiction of my ‘A1’ grade, in search of the special medicinal recipe, but perhaps, to no avail. But under the close guidance of illum.e, I managed to easily escape my stagnant "73"s and acquired knowledge and understanding of the subject, attaining never-before-seen results, conquering personal milestones as I journey towards the final treasure chest in this [ sec 4 / sat 10am / je ]

The illum.e-minated minds

illum.e lessons were always very useful as the teachers would explain the notes in great detail, and makes us do many timed practices. My tutor is a super understanding teacher, and responds to all my questions by even going above and beyond to mark extra assignments and giving consultations. Illum.e’s notes are informative, well-explained and the lessons enable me to get immediate feedback to improve my answering techniques. I’m super grateful that teachers at illum.e are really of the best teachers out there!

Furthermore, Mr Chia's unique views has inspired me greatly, allowing me to generate more content for my compositions, and his effective drills has allow me to experience a drastic improvement in my comprehensions. These two years have been a great experience. Thank you!

Thanks to illum.e, I managed to score A1 for my language arts at IP Year 4. I would like to thank my teacher for being a very patient teacher and believing in us – my teacher’s guidance has really helped us to improve our English abilities and boost our confidence!

Lessons at illum.e have helped to boost my confidence and interest with regards to learning English. Before coming for lessons here, English was originally my worse subject and I struggled to score well all the time.
