My son had a FANTASTIC hour with the new history teacher today. He said he is the best tutor he has ever come across (not to say that the others aren't great too). He said the teacher is just amazing. He was knowledgeable, precise, detailed, organized and structured - and most of all, he knew what he was teaching.
My son said he would like to have lessons with him every day (which his mom has already booked, clever!)
He really enjoyed his session with Mr. E. and it really made his day - not to mention mine too!

"Congratulations on producing another 800! Must have been a difficult task teaching an IB standard level student who was not familiar with the US curriculum. Thank you very much for your teaching! I wouldn’t have gotten such a high mark without you."
-- D.J. (SAT Chemistry)
"I just want to tell you that I got into Rice University! I don’t think this could have happened without your help. Thank you for my SAT chemistry class. It really helped my application. Now all I have to do is focus on my grades with a relaxed attitude. Thank you."

"Guess what? I got an 800 on SAT chemistry! Thank you so much!"

I have now become very successful in Australia, and I will never forget those who helped me along the way. I would very much like to thank all the teachers who taught me before. When I was under a lot of pressure, NTK was like a second home to me because teachers there were always so understanding whilst being totally professional as well.

My son has exceeded all expectations in the Physics IGCSE mock exam. His teacher deserves tremendous credit for this achievement. He has been of great help.

My son has shown great improvement in science after having lessons at NTK during the summer. I will definitely book more lessons with him in the future if time allows.

I got a perfect mark in my last Math test. I had never achieved such a high mark before. It's all thanks to my teacher!

My daughter got a decent score, 760/800 in SAT II Chinese after using the SAT II Chinese book for self-study. I would like to thank NTK Learning Center for writing such a good book.

The lesson was really helpful for my son's Harrow School Entrance Test. His result for the test was good.

My Math teacher has made me understand all the things that school had taught in the past several months in the firstlesson.
-- M. L. W. (General Math)
My daughter joined the IGCSE Math Course. I'm very impressed that the teacher provided a detailed set of notes and past papers to remind her of what had been taught over the past few months. I want to express my gratitude to the teacher for the sincerity shown in teaching every student.
-- Mrs. L. (IGCSE Math)
"Alex has been teaching me for several years now and through our lessons, I can tell that Alex is someone who genuinely enjoys teaching and wants the best for his students. He adapts his teaching style and methods to suit the needs and learning habit of each individual. I think he is a very versatile and observant teacher. Without Alex, I would have a lot more troubles with math. Lessons with him are never boring – he makes learning math so much moreinteresting!"

"Thank you again for your teaching. Because of you I got a 7 in SL chemistry! Just wanted to let you know."
--Ernest (IB Chemistry)
"In James' classes, I learned and practiced the skills required for IBDP English. He emphasizes the idea that 'practice makes perfect' and uses his experience with the IBDP to guide me through the exam andpaper writing process. Because he’s so familiar with the IB, I never hesitate to ask him questions regarding the program.
His classes are entertaining and very interactive. After every class, I walk away with a large load of information to reflect on. He is by far my favourite teacher! "
--M.Y. (IBDP English)
"Classes with James are never boring. James actually makes me enjoy breaking down a poem; he makes it feel more like a game than actual work. James is not only an awesome IBDP English teacher, but he is also an excellent mentor in other subjects and fields, such as Theory of Knowledge and university applications. He gives perceptive comments on how to improve essays and he is also very good at picking out subtle grammar mistakes.
James is an entertaining, witty, and insightful teacher. Thank goodness I had him for my two years of IB—or else I wouldhave failed!"
--E.Y. (IBDP English)
"I want to say thank you for all your help with my personal statements and supplements. I think they're one of the main things that led to my acceptance. Thank you for giving me support, for reading my supplements, for giving me extra time for multiple lessons, and much more. It was great taking lessons with you. They're part of the few that I don't actually dread. On another note, I know you're busy with work and all but I hope you don't stop teaching. It is not only your superb skills in English that make you a great teacher, but also the fact that you're an awesome person who is very approachable, sincere and cool. That's something I think students rarely findin teachers."

"Einstein once said, “It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge”,and he couldn’t have been more right. I was a student of James when I was studying the IB Diploma, and every lesson with him was edifying. It was James’s guidance that allowed me to find the right balance of discipline and creativity in my writing style. Not only has he guided me to overcome most of my challenging written tasks such as the IB English papers, Theory of Knowledge, and university applications, but he also instilled in me an appreciation and awareness of how important it is to have a solid foundation in the English language, and the joy of being able to excel in it. "
--J.T. (IBDP English)
"I remember spending an unhealthy amount of time in your classroom over sophomore summer. I usually like private classes because the student and teacher establish a closer rapport thanks largely to funny mnemonics and awkward moment stories. The SAT course I took with you was a group class, but I felt the same sincerity in how you taught everything from strategies to gibberish-like vocabulary, how you listened to our worries, how you laughed along with our antics — and how you brought a class of five rambunctious strangers together. I would boast to any and all worried parents that your class was an encouraging introduction to the evil CollegeBoard world."
