Hear from our students
We express our admiration and appreciation for students who persevered to achieve their learning goals at Distinction Tutorial School.
My daughter had not been scoring well for her compositions, so we sent her to Distinction Tutorial for The Writing Room classes. The teacher had been patient and was able to adapt her teaching to suit my daughter's temperament and learning style. She was able to achieve good results not just for composition but for her paper 2 as well during her final year exams! All thanks to the great support from Distinction Tutorial!

I have been in DTS for 3 years and I look forward to my lessons every Friday. DTS has been an enriching experience. My English language skills and my general knowledge have improved. They make lessons interesting; the teachers are always friendly and willing to help. The activities provided helped me get out of my comfort zone.

Ms Dee teachers English in a fun way. During her lessons we get to have fun and also learnt many skills to get scores in our exams. I was promoted from middle to higher ability in P5, thanks to Ms Dee. She has stretched me a lot and has given me lot of support and encouragement. She has indeed left an indelible mark on all of us.
I often heard from my son Hon Wei that Ms Dee constantly used creative teaching methods to keep her English classes fun & engaging so as to sustain her students interest in learning the topics. This. is one of the hallmarks of a professional and conscientious teacher who truly knows how to motivate students towards their own learning. Ms Dee is, without a doubt, an excellent English teacher and it is Hon Wei’s good fortune to be under her tutelage.

My son, Philip Chong, from Nan Hua Primary School and was taught English by Ms Dee in preparation for his PSLE this year. She not only was able to identify his weaknesses but constantly monitored and encouraged him. With her patient teaching, guidance, and constructive feedback, Philip showed a significant improvement during the school prelims with an increase in 12 points, scoring 90/100. Philip enjoys attending Ms Dee’s class every week. He also enjoyed the word games they played in class. She has demonstrated professionalism, dedication and care towards her students.

My English tuition experience at Distinction Tutorial School- 3 words to sum up my experience at Distinction! Fun, Engaging & Diverse! My teacher keeps up to the latest happenings around the world and organizes her lessons accordingly. This has helped to vastly expand my knowledge and kept me up to date. My perspectives on current affairs and global issues have certainly been enhanced. I am grateful for that!

Lively debates and visually-engaging lessons make the lessons come alive. This is idealistic - Having Fun while learning!
I joined Distinction in May 2017. I love attending classes at Distinction. Teacher is very energetic and passionate; lessons are challenging ― infusion of engaging elements through fun and interactive activities. Distinction’s curriculum provides many platforms for self-discovery and personal enrichment. Distinction prepared me well for my school exams with extra curriculum ― more than what my school teaches!
P5 Ace in English
I believe there is something magical about Distinction―My 2 kids are so drawn to the center. I was highly recommended to Distinction by my university classmate at the year-end university-alumni gathering. I was scouting for a tuition center for English and Social Studies to prepare for my son’s O Level exam and my daughter for Lower Secondary - Language Arts and History. Their grades have been mediocre in school. Both joined Distinction in March 2017 and after attending Distinction, they have improved by leaps and bounds in their mid-year examination. Distinction’s tutors are always engaging and they go above and beyond the call of duty to teach with passion, commitment and excellence. The tutors taught them the necessary skills to overcome the challenges in their examinations! Thanks Distinction!

Highly recommended by my mum’s friend, I joined Distinction for Ace in English and Social Studies in March 2017. Ever since, I have gained considerable confidence in these two subjects. Distinction’s teacher displayed tremendous dedication and extramural excellence, which fueled my passion for learning. My Social Studies’ score has improved from F9 to A1 for which is a tremendous feat given a short time frame at Distinction! Distinction has well surpassed my expectations!

Joining Distinction has deepened my thinking and broadened my perspective on various issues. Not only have I expanded my vocabulary, I have also picked up essential comprehension strategies and effective techniques in preparing for my A level examinations. Lessons are lively, engaging and content rich, with good coverage of general knowledge and current affairs. Appreciate the dedication, guidance and valuable advice from Distinction’s GP tutor. I would highly recommend students who struggled with GP to join Distinction!
