Testimonials & Success Stories

Janet's Story

Janet was a good Grade 8 student, getting an okay mark in math, but she wanted to do more. Upon learning that she has the potential, we taught her Grade 9 and 10 math curriculum in advance of school, as well as challenged her with thinking problems. In Grade 9, she achieved over 95% average in math, feeling more confident than ever before.

Henry's Story

Henry had only 60% in math when he was in Grade 9, and his parents wanted him to do better. We helped him catch up on his basic math skills, and taught him how to efficiently solve long and difficult math word problems and application questions. From time to time, we also did math game session, which increased his ability to focus and concentrate. In Grade 10, he consistently scored 80% in math tests in school. In the last test, he was very excited that he was able to score 96% on a math test. Congratulations, Henry!

Evan's Story

Evan was struggling in science when he was in Grade 9. He had a hard time understanding the textbook and was consistently underachieving in the science class. Through Grade 9 and 10, he attended our 1-on-1 tutoring session with our experience tutor, who taught him how to study most effectively and how to do critical thinking. His mark improved drastically in Grade 11 and 12, getting over 90% average in chemistry and physics, surprising even our tutor. He successfully got accepted into University of Waterloo Engineering Program as well as other difficult programs.

What parents have said about us

My daughter, Janet, studied with Mr. Zhang for more than a year, and she is in Gr 9. Her math grades increased from 80%s to around 95%. The material taught here is in close alignment with the school curriculum, and because Mr. Zhang personalized teaching, my daughter really liked to come to study. His English communication is better than some Chinese Canadian high school teachers'.I am so happy my daughter met Mr. Zhang!

- Janet's Mom

My son, Henry, had difficulty in math, and got only 66% in math when he finished math 9, so we were very worried.

Last year (2017) in July, we found Mr. Zhang's tutorial centre, and went there for 2 months of review. As a result, Henry was no longer afraid to do homework, and he began to show clear steps in writing his answer (previous assignments were messy), and he also liked to go to Mr. Zhang's class (in the past, he was resistant in going to any extra tutoring classes).

Henry studied in Mr. Zhang's class twice a week during the school year, and when we got back the report card in April of this year, Henry's math mark was 86%. Not only did his mark increase, his study habit improved, and he no longer leaves his homework to last minute. We are lucky to have him as our son's teacher.

- Henry's Mom

My daughter's math was a source of headache for us in Grade 8. Her math mark was mediocre, and she was not confident in math. As a parent, I felt distressed becuase I didn't know how to improve her math.

Fortunately, we found Mr. Zhang. For a year, under the guidance of Mr. Zhang, my daughter's mark became really good in Gr 9. She regained her self-confidence in math. Only good teachers can make a student better; Mr. Zhang is such a teacher.

- Sheryl's Dad

My friend recommended Mr. Zhang, and my daughter began to attend his class. November last year, my daughter not only got into IB program easily, she also gained more confidence in math. The most important thing is that my daughter really likes to take lessons with Mr. Zhang. Thank you!

- Jenna's Mom

My son, Howard, really likes to play Internet games and didn't show interest in studying. His grades were very unstable, always around 60%s. He lacked motivation in studying math and physics, especially. Next year, he will be Grade 12, so we were very frustrated.

Howard started one-on-one lesson starting in February. In four months, he could solve various questions effectively and timely. Howard's tutor taught him according to his weaknesses and gave extra homework if his school didn't give it. His tutor actively communicated with us and tried to find ways to make him become more interested in learning. His teaching method was easily understood by my child.

He recently scored 84% in math, so we are very thankful.

- Howard's Mom

I received my son's report card. I am so happy that he made a big progress in Math and Science. Both subjects are over 90s, very outstanding. And he is very confident on them. So I would thank you very much for your excellent works. In the new term, I would see he is able to stay on this level, and continue to be challenged further more.
