Testimonials and Compliments for MetaQuest's Science Enrichment and Tuition Programmes

Rave Reviews

for our Primary 3-6 Science Enrichment and Tuition Term and Holiday Programmes

Being a stay-home mum, I'm not a fan of external coaching... My view on MetaQuest changed when we enrolled my P4 and P6 girls in MQ's Dec school holiday 3-hour programme. I was hoping to let them have some fun with Science, as the programme name suggested. They came back raving about the class, sharing excitedly about the numerous Science experiments they conducted. From what I learnt, I could see that these Science experiments were not frivolous activities, but specially designed experiments aimed at driving home certain key Science concepts.

Under my children’s strong persuasion, I enrolled them in the regular weekly Science classes at MQ. It has been 6 weeks into the course, and my children are enjoying every lesson.

 

I like it that the lesson is very well balanced. Science experiments are conducted at the beginning of each lesson. This gives students first-hand experience with experimental setups and observing outcomes, which leads to a sound grasp of key Science concepts. They are also taught answering techniques which are crucial in scoring well in exams.

I also appreciate the MQ teachers very much. They are very approachable and allow me to have an open communication channel with them. My husband and I have interacted with them on numerous occasions, and I find them very knowledgeable and well-versed in the curriculum. I am thankful that they are serious educators who are passionate about teaching, which makes a whole world of difference in shaping the young learners’ keen minds for Science.

My son was apprehensive about going for weekly tuition at first, but he enjoyed his Science holiday programme so much that we signed him up for the weekly classes at MetaQuest. 

 

At P5, he understood the Science concepts well, but his grades were initially pulled down by his responses to the Open-Ended Questions (OEQ).

 

MetaQuest taught him how to use keywords, and structure his OEQ answers – all through a fun learning environment. 

 

He especially looked forward to the experiments conducted every week. My boy's PSLE AL1 for Science is hugely attributed to the learning journey through MetaQuest. Thank you to his MQ teacher!

After enrolling Yee Kai for the course, the way he answered questions became sharper and more focused. This is largely attributed to how his MQ teacher prioritises the understanding of concepts rather than just passively going through questions and providing answers. The constant reminder to identify concepts that are being tested and the relevant keywords to use, had benefited Yee Kai tremendously.

My child's MQ teacher is a dedicated and experienced tutor who knows the PSLE Science syllabus well. My child was in another centre in Primary 5 but was unable to understand the concepts taught. Happened to chance upon MetaQuest while searching online.

 

Although my child was doing online classes, her teacher ensured that the online students were not left out in his lessons. Also, he provides detailed feedback on areas for improvement for my child to work on in our weekly email correspondence. Thank you to Sarah's MQ teacher!

We signed up for MetaQuest classes during the Circuit Breaker. Ryan has been struggling with understanding the questions that test on experiments, deciphering the right concept/theory learnt and applying them in the answers. After attending MetaQuest’s classes, he has been able to answer these questions with ease.

 

His MQ teacher is also very energetic and engaging. We were on full online Zoom classes and she would actually request for the students to find household materials to conduct experiments with the students during lessons. Ryan enjoys the experiments and questions posed by his teacher during class, and this helped him to understand the concepts and apply them easily. Thank you to his MQ teacher and MetaQuest!

I have been looking around for some time for a "hands-on" Science enrichment centre for my son as he generally has short attention span and low stamina to sit through completely theory-based lessons. 

I chanced upon MetaQuest's holiday programmes and I was curious about their lessons. After speaking with my son's MQ teacher, I decided to enrol my son in the holiday programme and I am really glad I did. My son truly enjoyed the 2-day workshop. He said it was so fun because he got the chance to do experiments and learn the concepts at the same time. 

My son was keen to continue the lessons, so I enrolled him in the weekly lessons too. I can definitely see a change in his attitude towards attending Science tuition even though he only attended 2 days of holiday workshop. 

Thank you to his MQ teacher and MetaQuest.

I signed up for the Science Zoom class due to the circuit breaker to try out the lessons. Kaden has been enjoying his lessons with his MQ teacher ever since his first lesson. This is the first time Kaden has said that he understood his Science classes because of the clear explanations. He also loved the experiments that were conducted during the class.

 

I find him more attentive during the lessons and he was able to remember concepts learnt more easily. He used to think that Science was really tough, but now he says he likes the subject. Thank you MetaQuest and his MQ teacher for bringing about the change and love for Science in him. =)

I was looking for a Science enrichment programme during the circuit breaker for my son, who had plenty of time and nowhere to go during the school holidays. MetaQuest was a good option and had flexible arrangements which suited us very well.

My child enjoyed the Science classes and his MQ teacher was engaging. The students had fun while learning. The worksheet questions were well-structured, aligned with the curriculum and beneficial for my child’s learning. My son enjoyed the mind-mapping part of the lessons especially. There were some mini Science experiments too, which were interesting. Looking forward to more of that, which would definitely be appreciated by the kids.

Celestiel attended MQ's holiday class last year, and found the coaching session most beneficial in guiding her to answer Open-Ended Questions. When I realised they were conducting Zoom classes during the circuit breaker period, I signed her up immediately.

Her MQ teacher is dedicated and knows the curriculum well. He is able to connect with my child and she looks forward to every lesson. There’s often much laughter in the class, which is a sign of the students' joy in learning. I would definitely recommend MetaQuest.

The learning cycle in the MQ Science Programme allows students to understand the topics better and prepare them well for exams. My niece's MQ teacher makes sure that she understands everything that is taught. She looks forward to attending her weekly classes every weekend as it is fun and engaging. The lessons have taught her to answer Open-Ended Questions better than before. I am jubilant to have found this awesome Science programme in MetaQuest.

Elijah has a strong interest in Science and grasps concepts fairly quickly. However, he expressed his desire to be given guidance on answering techniques. ​

 

I was excited when I learnt that TWC’s sister company, MetaQuest, was offering Science classes. So, I decided to sign Elijah up for the trial class last year and went on to register him for regular lessons after that. ​

 

Elijah absolutely enjoys the class, especially the many hands-on experiments he gets to do during lesson. He looks forward to weekly lessons as he enjoys the engaging and balanced lesson format that his teacher delivers. ​

 

I’d like to make a special mention on how his teacher took the extra mile by offering to coach Elijah in an extra twenty-minute one-on-one session after their regular class to help prepare him for an upcoming weighted test. I’m confident that Elijah will greatly benefit from this programme and expand his knowledge in Science, which will surely help him perform well at the end-of-year exam. ​

Atticus has always enjoyed attending the Science class on Saturdays since we signed him up last year. Due to the compact size of the class, there was a high level of interaction with his tutors and he was able to stay attentive and engaged 100% of the time.

Atticus also seems impressed with the knowledge that his tutors possess and often spoke glowingly of them. Often, he would share with us the Science experiments he did in class.

We do feel MetaQuest has brought out the interest in Science for Atticus and helped him to follow closely what was taught in school. We are hopeful that this additional and fun experience at MetaQuest would benefit him and help him to attain a good grade in Science in the coming PSLE.

Marcellus enjoys his classes at MetaQuest tremendously, especially when he gets to conduct experiments in class. These experiments help him to grasp the concepts applied during lessons efficiently.

With the guide of his MQ teacher, Marcellus is able to identify sections that he finds challenging based on his latest examination paper. His MQ teacher also provides proven approaches to tackle his CA1 paper, from which we see specific improvement.

​Joey, Mother of Marcellus, P6

Marcel signed up for the P5 Science Boot Camp in Oct last year and enjoyed it very much, due to the topics covered and the interesting manner in which his MQ teacher conducted the course. We thus decided to enrol Marcel in the P6 Science Programme.

 

He made strong and steady progress over the year, improving steadily from AL4 during Continual Assessment 1 in March to AL3 for Semestral Assessment in May. He then got AL2 during Prelims, culminating with AL1 for PSLE. 

Marcel’s improvement would have not been possible if not for his MQ teacher’s dedication and teaching methods which made the topics intuitive for Marcel. His teacher made the extra effort of going through Marcel’s CA1 paper and helped him to revise the P4 and P5 questions which had daunted him. We definitely made the correct decision in enrolling Marcel with MetaQuest, and having his MQ teacher made the difference.

My MQ teacher's lessons are extremely engaging and entertaining. He not only pushes each child to the best of their ability but also “nags” a lot which allows keywords and techniques to answer questions to be etched in his students' minds like a plant's roots.

 

His teaching is extremely interesting, as he focuses to make his lessons engaging to all students. You would never see a person falling asleep in his class! He is a wise advisor and would definitely help your grades skyrocket to outer space!

My child did not attend any Science tuition classes previously as her grades have been consistent with self-study and some coaching from parents. 

During the P6 school holidays, we sent her to MetaQuest holiday classes to keep her occupied, and she really enjoyed the classes. 


With the COVID-19 situation, her progress dipped. To secure a firm high grade, we decided to let her join the final term of the P6 Science Programme. It was the right decision as she benefited from the answering techniques as well as the final revision in the lead up to PSLE. She achieved AL1 for the subject. Thank you to her MQ teacher!

At P5, my son was scoring around AL 3-4 in Science. After one year at MetaQuest, he got AL1 for Science at his PSLE. Huge thanks to his MQ teacher. He is patient and caring to the students, and follows up with all the homework and corrections. 

 

I must say MetaQuest has helped improve my son’s knowledge of Science and greatly improved his results. Thanks again!

Kayle joined MetaQuest (MQ) in 2020. Her results were average and the subject content was getting more difficult to comprehend and "digest". After exposure to MQ’s classes through a holiday workshop, I signed Kayle on, hoping to build up her concepts in Science. 

Although her MQ teacher in charge was strict and no-nonsense, she was able to connect with the class and entertain the children's never-ending questions. Kayle's results dipped during mid-2021 due to intermittent Home-Based Learning (HBL) and Zoom implementation. When face-to-face classes resumed, her MQ teacher worked very hard with Kayle to refocus her attention and strengthen her answering skills. Every week, she took extra time after class to go through different types of questions with Kayle, which I am very appreciative of. After 3 months of intensive training with her MQ teacher, she managed to improve by more than 30 marks in her year-end exam.

She enjoyed every week's lesson, especially those hands-on experiments. She learnt a lot from the year-end project and presentation.

I signed my niece up with MetaQuest as I really liked their way of making Science come to life. They combined concepts with experiments to help students visualise and apply the concepts on Open-Ended Questions, which are always viewed as the most difficult part of the Science paper.

 

My niece’s teacher is very patient and taught her answering techniques to handle the questions. At the end of the course, she was able to handle Open-Ended Questions confidently. I would recommend MetaQuest to those students looking to score in Science.

The circuit breaker brought a lot of uncertainty to the education system. I was deeply worried about how my son would fare without proper guidance, especially with Science being one of his weakest subjects. Fortunately, my worries were uncalled for! His MQ teacher assured me that lessons would still be ongoing via Zoom. 

 

My son's MQ teacher is extremely patient with the students and handles them very well! Although each lesson lasts for 2 hours, my son is able to sit through the whole session without any complaints. His MQ teacher gives his students a little break during the lesson and that helps my son. He is now able to answer structured questions quite confidently. I would like to thank his MQ teacher for being so supportive and understanding!

Khloe looks forward to her weekly lessons as she enjoys doing experiments in class. The exposure to the experiments and her participation in them were beneficial to her understanding and tackling of Open-Ended Questions throughout the year of learning. Thanks, MQ, for the coaching. 

Mindy, Mother of Khloe, P4

My son has always been interested in Science, especially with hands-on experiments. I enrolled him in MetaQuest instead of other Science programmes because I didn’t want to dampen his interest by just doing Science papers and answering questions all the time. My son looks forward very much to his weekly MetaQuest class.

 

There has been a really good balance between learning Science concepts through hands-on experiments, and learning to answer the questions correctly. He is now on his second term at MetaQuest, and despite the circuit breaker, his MQ teacher has kept the online lessons engaging and interesting. I can see my son actively participating during lessons all the time.
 

Eve, Mother of Sun Lee, P4

My MQ teacher taught us certain techniques to answer exam questions. He also made it easier for us to remember things like magnetic materials. I like that my MQ teacher also shows us videos that help us to better answer questions.

I would like to thank him for teaching us in fun ways and adding humour to his lessons.
It is because of my MQ teacher that I was able to improve in Science.

 

I hope you will continue being an amazing teacher!

I would like to give a shoutout to my son’s MQ teacher who has great skills and patience in teaching Science. My son said he has been quite happy with the tuition lessons for these past few months. In class, they always learn new things and carry out experiments just like in a real Science laboratory! Learning through play and experiments, is one of the important factors that help with studying.

Besides that, his MQ teacher is also always very warm and welcoming to students and parents. He replies to all their questions as quickly as he can despite his busy schedule. He is a friendly teacher whom the students can get close with, and frequently updates parents on their child’s progress.

 

So far, my son has made some good improvements after attending his class. Thank you!

My grandson Bessarion has been so excited about Science after attending his first lesson at MetaQuest.

I chanced upon this programme as I was looking for an enrichment class for his English. The idea of participating in hands-on experiments was something I wanted for him. I thought it would help him improve his attitude towards Science in school.

He had so much fun and he learnt a lot.
He went home to share the good experience with his parents. He wanted to attend more of such lessons!
