Testimonials from Students
He’s patient, driven and competent in his teaching, and allowed me to learn at my own pace. His lessons bolstered my understanding of the fundamentals of Physics and Maths, as well as taught me how to go about tackling more challenging questions. Brandon Lin, Hwa Chong Institute, A for Maths and A for Physics
Hi Espen, this is Joranna, Darren’s mummy. I wanted to write to u earlier but I have been very busy lately. I want to thank you for tutoring Darren. Darren did very well in his exam & he has been accepted to NUS medical school. He will be starting his course next month. Once again, thank you so much. Mdm Ang, parent of Darren Lam, ACS (Independent), Top IB score (Grade 7) for Maths
Mr Lim is someone who can cater to any standard, no matter how weak or strong you are. He never leaves the weakest behind, instead being patient in his teaching and eventually helping them understand even the most profound of concepts. He also does not hold back those who are not as weak, as he manages to still devote time and resources to help them patch up their weaker areas. Regardless of your standard, I recommend Mr Lim, and of course an obligatory thank you to him for being among the most patient and competent teachers I have come across in my schooling life! Kenneth Sugiarto, Hwa Chong Institute, A for Maths
Tuition Approach and Tuition Fees
Espen believes all students have different learning abilities and are receptive to different teaching styles depending on their individual preferences. Instead of “forcing” students to adapt to his teaching approach, he adjusts his teaching methodology for each student. Backed by his 20+ years experience of tutoring JC Maths, he has sharpened his ability to determine the best learning method for each student and use the optimal method to tutor his students.
During school term, each maths topic will be covered in detail over two lessons. Around 2 to 3 weeks before the examination, there will be revision lessons on the topics that will be tested. Towards the end of each tuition class, time will be allocated to each student for consultation. Students are also encouraged to shape their learning by bringing their own questions that they have difficulty with.
Given how Espen makes complex concepts simple and easy to understand for his students, his students learn more in the two hours of weekly maths tuition as compared to what they have learnt in the whole week at school. His students see significant improvements in just 2 to 3 months of group tuition with him. For individual tuition lessons, results can be seen earlier; as soon as just 1 month. Espen’s group tuition are capped at 10 students per class. Summary notes are also provided to help students reinforce their learning.
Unlike some other tuition providers where the tutors only lecture and go through examples, Mr Espen’s classes allow his students to interact and ask questions any time during his lessons. He also quizzes his students while teaching to ensure his students follow the lesson. If students have questions from school, they can ask via WhatsApp.
Fees start from $360 for every 4 lessons for group tuition, and from $180 per hour for private tuition. Private tuition is offered at 2hrs per lesson.
He has also been featured in The New Paper, MyPaper, and has written a feature published on The Straits Times.
