A Class Above The Rest
How it began
In July of 2017, Mr Chen had just freshly graduated out of National University of Singapore. He spent 4 years studying Chemistry and was selected to attend the Joint Minor Program @ University of Toronto for 6 months. He graduated with a Degree in Science with Honours, Major in Chemistry, Minor in Environmental Chemistry.
As an enthusiastic and devoted public speaker, Mr Chen saw no better purpose in life than passing on his ideas in through teaching. However, his passion and purpose, specifically, in teaching remained undiscovered until his curiosity led to a 2 year contract as a tutor at a tuition centre.
Ever since then, over 50 tutees, of a variety of profiles, have been under his tutelage. He has delivered proven results and success in Math and Science tuition. And in 2019, he established VANTAGE TUTOR, with the goal of being A Class Above The Rest.
Part of Mr Chen and his tutors' passion is sharing ideas and teaching quick fixes for students' continued academics development & beyond.
