Thanks for all the help!
Sock Cheng T.
TAS is not stranger to parents seeking to build strong english foundation for young children. The materials are clear and concise, making it simple for parents to reinforce the tricky grammatical rules at home. And, the real differentiation lies in having experienced teachers and efficient adminstrative team. We were fortunate to have T. Yvonne taking our girl this year. Notwithstanding her stern facade, she is sensitive to the temperament of individual child in a relatively large class. Her ability to size up the kids quickly and her relentless drilling on areas of development are effective in unleashing the potential of the little learners. I appreciate your periodic updates and honest feedbacks with practical suggestions to bring out the best ability of my child. Thank you T. Yvonne for building impeccable english foundation with Rianne.

During covid HBL, TAS adapted quickly to set up their online lessons, a sign of an effective management.Apart from that, I was most impressed by Teacher Elaine who taught my child. She is a very dynamic and dedicated teacher who can engage the class by her booming loud voice and fun quizzes and prizes. Before PSLE, she gave free extra classes and frequently checked in with me on my child’s revision progress. Post PSLE, she even organised celebration parties for the class. It is so rare to come by such a passionate teacher. Thank you, Teacher Elaine!

My son has enjoyed his English lessons at TAS. The online classes provided a great alternative and flexibility to physical classes. Teacher Aaron is very engaging and always shares lots of interesting stories to help the child come up with more creative content for Paper 1. The materials provided by the center is also very well-structured and useful.

My kids have been with TAS since their lower primary (P2 and P1 when they first joined TAS). We are glad we made the right choice of tuition centre for them.A BIG THANK YOU to Tr Elaine who has been teaching my girl from P2-P6. A very passionate teacher who goes extra miles to make sure the kids are very well prepared for their exams. She even conducted 1 hr extra lesson FOC for the kids (almost weekly) to better prepare them for p6 mid-year to psle. What a great teacher! With her guidance, my girl scored AL1 in her PSLE English. My girl enjoyed her lessons very much.Thank you to tr Melvyn, tr Chester and tr Joy who has helped my boy. He enjoys his lessons there as well,Last but not least, thank you to the admin staff Josephine & Bee Leng (hope I spell their name correctly) for their help when my kids need to arrange make up class.Overall, very happy with TAS. Will definitely recommend TAS to our friends.

Very glad that we managed to signed Corrine up for TAS teacher Joanne’s class from Jjitsum Mall. Teacher Joanne is a very responsible and committed teacher. She has helped Corrine improve and maintain her grades for English and scored AL1 for PSLE. Even when Corrine is taking the online lessons the entire year, teacher Joanne ensures that the students online are paying attention and she is able to capture their attention and ensure they are focusing on lesson..

My son joined TAS last year and over the 1+ year with TAS, he has gained confidence in his EL writing, as well as shown improvement in the various components of his main paper. Teacher Joanne has been a very dedicated teacher who didn’t mind spending extra time to coach her classes. She has been a very encouraging but yet firm teacher, which my son really needed. Thank you TAS for the guidance and great effort in helping our kids!

Teacher Joanne was simply awesome! She was patient, fun and very responsible. She was very dedicated and cared for the children wholeheartedly. Never in our dreams did we think our son can score an AL1 for English. We are blessed to have her for the important year.

I would like to thank Teacher YueYing for her hard work in pushing my son to improve on his English language, making lessons fun and interesting! And also to encourage him to pick up reading! Without her guidance my son will still be in the borderline score.Once again! Thank you Teacher YueYing 😊

Teacher Yueying is a very meticulous and thoughtful teacher. Her lessons were engaging, useful, and she was very patient with everyone in class, always encouraging her students to try. Teacher Yueying even went the extra mile by providing extra lessons during her own time. My son loves her teaching so much that he wished she taught Secondary school level too. Teacher with such passion in teaching is really hard to come by. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a more passionate teacher to boost their interest in learning.

Teacher Andy has been most dedicated and helpful in supporting my child. His lessons are always fun and engaging. We are grateful for the extra classes and online consultation prior exam. My child has certainly benefited and his English grade improved tremendously. If it has not been for Teacher Andy, my child probably would not have attained a AL 1 at PSLE. Thank you very much Teacher Andy!

My daughter’s writing skills have improved tremendously under her guidance and she got a good score for her EYA. Thank you Teacher Michelle!

My boy has been with TAS under Teacher Grace for 3 years. Teacher Grace is responsive over WhatsApp and her lessons are fun and interactive. We like the hybrid class option which TAS offers. The materials are organized and the flash cards are good for building vocabulary.
My P4 daughter has been with Teacher Joanne’s online classes for about 9months. My girl has enjoyed her lessons as Teacher Joanne has been very engaging and encouraging.My girl has shown great improvement for SA2 and best of all, she can write with ease and no longer has a fear for compositions! 👍

Signed my girl up for creative writing class. I was very impressed by the admin who was very patient with me when I asked questions and changed dates a few times for the trial class, she was understanding and very responsive as well, i will get back a reply on the very same day. I also like that the school does not chase for payment, as long as we pay before the class (mom of many kids tend to forget until that day. Haha)My daughter and her friend enjoyed the 2hours creative writing class very much. They learn new words and I like how the teachers break down each word so it's easier for kids to remember. I read the compo she wrote in TAS, compared to the one she wrote in sch, her compo become "alive" with more descriptive words. Teacher Yvonne is very encouraging, my daughter likes the class, the teacher and said she wants to go back again. :)) As a mom, I'm happy to see my kids enjoy learning. 😊 Parents looking for fun, interactive and encouraging English classes for kids should check TAS out!
Angel G.
My boy has been with TAS for coming 2 years. The materials are great. I would like to use this opportunity to thank Teacher Sok Min for going extra miles to review my boy’s work. Not forgetting Eileen, the receptionist. She is helpful and friendly. We will continue the journey with TAS❤️

Many thanks to T Aaron. My daughter really enjoys her online tuition as the lesson is very interesting and engaging. T Aaron also pointed out the areas of improvement for her writing and gave countless encouragements to her to gain confidence in her English. I feel that the materials given by the tuition centre is concise and comprehensive for her ease of revision.

My girl has been with TAS since P2, she enjoys her lessons very much as the lessons are very engaging. Teachers are fun and dedicated. Even during the pandemic, we don’t face any problems with learning via zoom as the teachers are creative to make every lesson counts. Their admin is also very responsive and friendly. Many many thanks to teacher Grace and teacher Hui min for the patience with my girl. She is now P4. And will complete her primary journey with TAS ! 👍 love their materials.

Really appreciate and applaud Teacher Aaron for his dedication and interesting lessons since day 1. My daughter is always looking forward to his online classes every week! Lessons with Teacher Aaron is never a boring one! Always willing to share and gives feedback on how to help my daughter improve on her weaknesses. Thank you so much for being such an awesome teacher!

Teacher Aaron is a dedicated and passionate teacher. And his lessons are always uplifting and he has a great sense of humour. My son enjoys all his lessons! My son commented that English is his favourite subject now. Towards his last lesson for his P6 students, Teach Aaron specially wrote a card with a gift to encourage them! My son was beaming with joy when he received them, he shared he will do his BEST not to disappoint his fav Teacher! Thank you for all your guidance and teachings, making learning enjoyable and helping my son to produce excellence in the subject!Lucas Ng Mummy

Teacher Aaron is highly engaging, responsible, competent and encouraging. My daughter reads widely and initially I hesitated to send her for enrichment as I thought she did not require it. However, TAS exceeded my expectations and she has truly blossomed under his guidance and instruction. Her compositions have improved tremendously, in originality, depth and structure. Most importantly, she loves going for class and looks forward to it every week.
Joanne F.
Since my boy joined TAS online class early this year, he being enjoying Teacher Aaron’s class every week.Tr Aaron’s lessons have never been dull, but energetic, engaging and enlivening. He applied the right techniques and has stretched my boy’s creativity in his composition. He is very dedicated and will give constructive advice to my boy’s compo and also paper 2.In a nutshell, he is very sharp in pointing out the areas where my boy is weak and provides valuable assistance with recommendation of free resources for my boy to look up for improving his knowledge.Over this period, his encouraging and positive method has boosted my boy’s confidence and improve his grade.Thank you very much, Teacher Aaron!
Priscilla P.
Thankful for Teacher Grace who is such a dedicated and passionate teacher. She is one who follows upwith child and parent too and provides regular updates about your child’s progress. Knowing that my daughter is learning so well in her class gives me great reassurance. Being away from Singapore for almost 10 years, TAS and teacher Grace has helped my daughter learn leaps and bounds and grasping the various components of learning the English language in Singapore. We appreciate all the tips in writing and enjoy hearing my daughter share good phrases that can be used in compositions 😉 Teacher Grace keeps her sessions enjoyable and learning fun. Going to her weekly class is never a chore at all.
Susanti L.
My boy has been with teacher Yvonne for about 6 months, I can see that he has improved and progressed through these few months in terms of grammar and techniques in composition writing. Teacher Yvonne has a lot of patience as she takes the time to review his work and provide weekly feedback. She identifies and provides guidance on areas where improvements could be made.My boy enjoys her lesson very much as she always encourage him to do better each time. I am very happy that I have found the right teacher for my boy 😀👍.
Janice C.
My P3 boy has been attending lesson with Teacher Joanne since P2 and he enjoys her lessons and is more confident in composition writing. Even when classes moved online during the pandemic, Teacher Joanne was able to conduct lessons effectively and helped him to stay focused during lessons. He has benefited a lot from her lessons and scored 29/30 for his school mid year weighted assessment. I’m thankful to Teacher Joanne for her guidance and happy with his progress at TAS.
Feng Yi C.
Both my kids (P6 and P4)have been with TAS since P1. They have benefitted tremendously from Teacher Yvonne, Teacher Chester and Teacher Joanne. Even when the classes switched to online due to the pandemic, the dedicated teachers do their best to stay connected with the kids and are always willing to help. Online classes are just as effective as my kids continue to improve. In fact, they have made great improvement the past 6 months. I am truly grateful to the teachers for all their support and encouragement all these years!
Eberta T.
I would like to thank Teacher Melvyn and the supporting team at TAS. My daughter was taught by Teacher Melvyn for slightly less than a year and in that short period I could see a significant improvement in her composition writing. Being an online class, I could also see how passionate Teacher Melvyn was in teaching his class every week. His lessons were lively and he somehow managed to engage every student - both the more chatty ones and the quieter ones! Each composition handed in is returned with constructive feedback and suggestions on how it can be further improved. TAS also has excellent centre handouts and books. Highly recommended!

My son was with T.A.S. for about 2 yrs. T.A.S. management is considered professional as compared to other enrichment centres. Teachers are being provided with hp to communicate with parents, on progress of students, which is very convenient.Tr. Yue Ying who was still based in AMK branch in 2021 is very dedicate in her teaching. She is very kind to provide extra lessons and notes for the P6 graduation class near the PSLE papers, she really went the extra mile to help them in whatever ways she could. By the way, she is also the "star" teacher in the centre as her classes are always fully taken up!The materials provided are a lot (as they are being charged separately) and comprehensive. The flashcards provided are useful to booste their bank of vocab but maybe too many as lessons not enough time to go through and kid doesn't flip through on their own.Have just enrolled my younger son in T.A.S. as well for his P5 English next year. Hope it is not too late!
The teachers at Alternative Story are excellent. I have been attending Teacher Melvyn's class for the past 4 years. Teacher Melvyn has been very helpful and patient with me. My English has shown great improvement. I even got AL 2 for English for PSLE 2021! Thank you Teacher Melvyn for your guidance.
Mabel Y.
My kid was taught by Teacher Melvyn, and he thoroughly enjoyed his lessons. Teacher Melvyn had built good rapport with all of his students throughout his lessons, and always made his lessons entertaining by showing informative videos and cracking jokes. My kid has also learnt to appreciate and develop a love for the language, and has improved greatly in the subject. A highly committed teacher with great passion.
My girl joined TAS late in Term 3 and she missed out a lot of the technic that was taught previously. In order to get her get up to speed, Teacher Sok Min has kindly offer to spend additional time with my girl to walk her through the various critical technic. Not only that, Teacher Sok Min is always quick in getting back to us when we asked her questions via the TAS platform. In short, a very dedicated teacher and definitely a pleasure to have her as my girl's teacher!

Teachers are superb! Both my kids attend TAS. The teachers are responsible and their lessons are engaging. I am especially thankful to Tr Phoebe and Tr Hui Min. They are very dedicated and always spend extra time to coach the students before PSLE. Highly recommended!
