Student Testimonials

Mr Bryan was my Economics tutor throughout my journey of A levels from the year 2017-2018. Without a doubt, Mr Bryan was one of the outstandingly conscientious teachers I have ever met. His attention to detail along with the everlasting patience he had with me was definitely one of the defining factors that drove me on to complete my A level journey. That being said, I believe that Mr Bryan has consistently and continuously given his all for every lesson, ensuring that I had always strived for the best I could become. Not to forget the IMAGINE Conference he hosted just last year, that was simply awe-inspiring where he and the other speakers shed light on the many different economic concepts and perspectives. This actually displays his brilliant attitude to lifelong learning and it should act as a “virus” to others around him. In short, this write-up is an appreciation of him for constantly giving his best in the things that he does. Thank you Mr Bryan, you were and will always be a brilliant tutor.

Bryan has been a great tutor and mentor to me both in and out of lessons. Bryan taught me Economics during my 2 years in Raffles Institution (Junior College). During lessons, he uses engaging real-life case studies to exemplify his points and support his classes. He also corroborates his materials with studies from external professional organisations for writing stronger essays. He is patient in teaching and is very flexible and accommodating. He also goes out of his way to aid and encourage me especially during stressful periods such as those nearing exams. He has taught me valuable life lessons such as succeeding through deliberate practice and many other skills which will definitely be useful in my future endeavors. Overall, it has been a pleasant journey with him. Thanks Bryan.
