What I like
The lessons are well conducted according to school syllabus. The teaching materials are sufficient for me to score well in my exams. I am scoring both A1 s in my E math and Add Math. I joined the centre since Sec 1. I only scored a barely pass in my Math when I first joined the centre. I am now one of the top scorers in my class for Math.
My tutor collects material fee every lesson for the materials printed from the students who do not deposit any amount with him. By right every student is supposed to deposit a certain amount of money with the tutor, but some students did not do so. That's why the tutor has to collect the money from them every single lesson. (Some students don't like to follow instructions) like the one who sent in the review previously. I am in the same tuition class as him. I knew that he did not pass his tests at all before he joined the centre (overheard the conversations between his mum and the tutor). He scored A2 for his past few tests after he joined the centre. He should be satisfied with this kind of result. He is a kind of irritating to the class as he is always late for his lessons(rushing in in the middle of the lessons), that's why he felt that he was only copying model answers. The tutor has to explain to him all over again for the lessons that he missed. He is wasting the tutors and our time for doing that. I heard that he wanted to quit without giving one month's notice to the Centre, that's why the Principal gave him that kind of remark. The Principal is very strict with the rules and regulations for the Centre. How can the teacher follow every school's syllabus to cater for everyone ? The students in my tuition class scored very well for their Math (The teacher constantly monitored our results).
What I dislike
Students don't follow rules and regulations when they wanted to quit and disputes arise when this happens.
(Things will be better if everyone follows rules and regulations stated when you first join!)

From a reviewer's perspective, this "Vincent" seems to be one of the stakeholders of the tuition center. It seems as though there are a number of positive reviews countering every negative review. I wonder if this is a scam whereby the counter reviews are actually by the founders of the center. This makes me rather confused...

Hi Ellis, thanks a lot for your feedback!
It does seems like this is the case. We will look into it.
For scammers, we will block their account and their ip address if we see duplicates.

PS: Vincent / YES Maths Tuition Centre, we would appreciate if the owner would create a genuine account and claim their listing so that they can give their genuine replies to the bad reviews they have received instead of posting 'counter" reviews that actual degrade the reputation of the centre further.
Happy posting tuition centre reviews everyone! :)
