Learners come in all shapes and sizes, and with different abilities. We begin cultivating a genuine passion for learning, so that each unique student may be imbued with the right mindset to learn and develop to his best potential.

The Ark really brought me joy and happiness through learning as I was not only able to learn my school subjects with joy but also bond with my tuition group mates and the teachers. Since joining at Pri 5, through years and hardship and friendship at The Ark, I know that this bond will never be broken. Learning in this tuition centre is unique and it stands out compared to other tuition centres I had been in. My attitude towards learning changed positively in this process. I highly recommend students to give this centre a try and start this journey to success. I’ve completed my O levels and I am currently enrolled in Temasek Polytechnic!

"O" Level Combined Science (Chemistry, Physics) and A Math student, Tampines Sec

Teacher Luke was very patient with me when I was slow or couldn’t understand concepts. He made sure I understood each step and concept clearly and was always willing to go through them again. I was failing Math since P3 and didn’t have strong fundamentals in secondary school and was constantly getting F9s until Os where I managed to finally pass with Teacher Luke’s help. He also helped me get an A2 for Science Os which was a big improvement from C6 throughout secondary school.

As parents, we would like to take this chance to thank Teacher Andrew, for his continuous care, support, collaboration, and most importantly patience. We were really struggling to find a tuition teacher for Electronics as it is offered in very few schools.

With limited resources and difficulties coping, our son was on the verge of giving up on the subject completely. Teacher Andrew is a true blessing to us at a right time. We have witnessed exponential development in our child. Our child is so blessed to have you as his teacher and mentor, and we feel exceptionally obliged to have our son learn under your tutelage.

Words cannot express our gratitude for your passion, enthusiasm and diligent effort you provided each and every day. Our son felt very comfortable and gained his confidence to produce results beyond his expectations in his “O” levels and opted for relevant subject choices in his territory education too. Thank you once again Teacher Andrew.

Teacher Luke is very patient and very friendly. He takes care of his students very well and his explanations are crystal clear, it was a joy being taught by him. The facility itself is nice and cozy and has little quirky things that makes it special. Overall I had a great experience there and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for help in their studies. I ended up with A1 for both E and A Math, and A2 for Chemistry 🙂

"O" Level A Math & Chemistry student, St Nicholas Girls'

Mr Rex is very experienced and is able to find my short-comings and correct my mistakes. He helps me discover my strengths and develop them at the same time.

Teacher Andrew is not only patient, but also selfless when it comes to teaching. Under his guidance for Combined Science (Physics) in preparation for my O Levels, I had consistently topped my class for Physics and eventually scored an A1 for Combined Science for my Os.

Teacher Andrew teaches topics along with their respective applications in real life, which helped me better understand complicated concepts and learn beyond the syllabus. His lessons were interactive and engaging, helping my tuition mates and I stay focused and attentive during lessons.

Given that every student has his or her unique strengths and weaknesses, I inevitably had topics which I struggled with. Teacher Andrew always made sure he would help me fill those gaps by regularly checking up on my progress. He went the extra mile, offering extra help outside of class to ensure I was well prepared and ready for the exams.

I am thankful for the classes I had with Teacher Andrew as well as the knowledge I had gained from him. He is an exemplary teacher for all students alike.

Teacher Luke is a very personal and engaging teacher. He made sure that students were cared for and paced them accordingly. I am very grateful for his support in my late upper sec academic journey for Chemistry and E-Math. I was able to improve greatly for Chemistry from an E8 at the end of Sec 3 to a B3 for my “O” levels, and from consistently failing E Math to securing a steady C5 for my “O” levels.

Most importantly, Teacher Luke helped make these subjects enjoyable for me and made me less afraid to approach them. Currently, I am aiming to pursue a career in marine science and law, and will have to continue studying Chemistry and Math, which would definitely not happen if not for Teacher Luke’s inspirational attitude and passion for his students!

"O" level Chemistry & E. Math student, Anglican High

Wow, I don’t even know where to begin. First of all, I just want to say that if you are looking for a teacher who is creative and innovative, then Teacher Luke’s lessons are the way to go. The way he teaches his students is so different from many other tuition teachers who have taught me. Coming from a person who has been constantly failing Chemistry since Sec 1 to getting a B3 at the end of my O levels, I must say that Teacher Luke really played a big part in making it happen. Because of how he made and compacted all his materials to make it simple for us to understand, I was able to have a good grasp of what I was learning and hence apply it to my work. Not only does he teach in way that makes learning easy, he also prepares his lesson so thoroughly so that we do not feel bored at all! Teacher Luke would go the extra mile to prepare materials to cater to our needs. In the past, I had just regurgitated all my answers and was not learning anything. But under Teacher Luke’s guidance, I was not only able to answer more precisely, but more also decisively! All in all, Teacher Luke is a very dedicated teacher who has the capacity to teach his students in a creative manner, making lessons very enjoyable!

“O” level Chemistry student, St Hilda's Secondary

Teacher Luke helped us achieve A* for Math! He is very patient and nice. When we have doubts, we would clarify with him and he would help us willingly. We always look forward to attending his classes every week. Thank you Teacher Luke.

Teacher Luke has helped me a lot for chemistry as he was able to go through every topic thoroughly and I was able to gain deeper understanding in each topic. He has helped me by clearing my doubts during lessons and help me spot common questions that were tested in O levels!

"O" Level Chemistry Student, Anglican High

I have been at The Ark for 7 months with Teacher Andrew and Teacher Luke for Physics and Chemistry. My grade was normally around C6 and after joining for lessons with Mr Andrew and Mr Luke, I was able to achieve an A2 for my O-level exam. What I enjoyed most about the lessons with both of the teachers was how they would explain to us in detail and would also often find clips or videos related to the topic for us to understand much deeper. During the intensive O-level preparation, there were numerous mock tests to drill us to get used to the duration of the exams.

"O" Level Combined Physics/Chemistry student, Private Candidate

Teacher Luke is someone who really cares about his students. He would always make sure that we understood everything before moving on to another chapter and was also very patient in helping us. Even when we didn’t understand for the third or fourth time, he would try even harder to find simpler ways to teach us so that we could understand. Scored an A1 for A Math in 2020 O lvls and Teacher Luke played a big role in helping me achieve that!

"O" Level A Math student, Junyuan Secondary School

Zachary nearly failed his P5 SA1 Math exam, as the Paper 2 questions were getting very complex. We knew he needed help to understand and tackle those types of questions. So, we started weekly tuition with Luke at The Ark. Zachary looked forward to every session as Luke took the trouble to understand him and engaged him very well during lessons. We saw a marked improvement in his attitude towards Math and his motivation to do well in the subject grew. We are pleased that he eventually managed to score an A* for his PSLE.

Ms Nora

Teacher Luke is very patient. My son had continuously failed Math (F9) since Sec 1. We found and engaged The Ark when he was in Sec 3, and within months, his grade jumped to A1 and he has been scoring consistently that way since.
For my daughter, she has been failing throughout her primary Math and got us so worried for her math PSLE. Within a year of coaching and patience for her slow learning, she managed to jump from F to C in PSLE! We are so happy she is eligible for express course. Luke is definitely the kind of teacher we look for to guide our kids who need that extra help!


Coming to class gives me the chance to clarify all my doubts, and also focus on specific topics that I’m weaker in. It’s such a nice learning environment and classes are so engaging that I honestly look forward to lessons because we learn and have fun simultaneously.

"O" level Chemistry and A-Math student, Singapore Chinese Girls School

When I first joined, it was only 4 months away from my O-level exams. However with the small group teaching and approachable teachers, I was able to improve my chemistry from a D7 to a B3.

“O” level Chemistry student, Bedok South Secondary

I first got to know Luke in 2017 when my son undertook tuition for his O Level Math and Chemistry with The Ark Education Centre. My son progressed tremendously under the attentive tutoring of Luke. Seeing such great results, I decided to place my daughter with The Ark to prepare her for PSLE this year, and she scored both As for both Math and Science subjects! Luke is a professional and dedicated tutor who will feedback to me from time to time on my children’s progress. I highly recommend Luke for his professionalism and excellent tutoring skills.

Ms Shirley Ang

Luke is a scholar and did exceptionally well in his studies. He is humble though he came from elite schools. He shares good study tips and guides his students well. On top of that, he is very strict with discipline too. If you want the passive way to excel, you shouldn’t be knocking on Luke’s door.


Mr Luke is a very caring and nice teacher. I absorbed a lot and learned very well from him. With his help, I eventually pushed my Chemistry from F9 to A2 at the ‘O’-level exam. He even made me develop more interest in Chemistry as a subject, something which I never imagine could happen to me. Mr Luke provides good and relevant materials for both A Math and Chemistry, and I enjoyed every single lesson with him!!

"O" level Chemistry & A Math student, Ngee Ann Secondary

Taking on A Math in Sec 3 made me realise that I was not going to make it on my own after receiving my results in Term 1. I joined The Ark with a weak foundation and little hope of being able to score well for the subject. However, Teacher Luke spared no effort to rebuild not just that foundation, but also the hope that I needed to keep me motivated throughout the rest of my journey through secondary school.

Teacher Luke’s lessons were filled with the perfect balance of laughter and focus, ensuring that all of us in the group were able to learn at a common pace, leaving no one behind. It was easy to understand and grasp complex topics through Teacher Luke’s ability to simplify and explain a certain concept, which was essential to be able to dive further into more complicated questions. Homework given was usually minimal and manageable, allowing me to balance between subjects and other responsibilities such as my leadership roles in school.

To this day, I am grateful for Teacher Luke’s guidance which has brought me to where I am today. I was posted to my first choice – Accountancy and Finance in Temasek Polytechnic, scoring a nett total of 7 points for L1R4 for the O Level exams. And, I managed an A2 for A Math!

When I first joined the Centre, I had no idea about the subjects Chemistry and Physics. However, after 3 years of learning with Teacher Andrew and Teacher Luke, I fell in love with these subjects. Considering that I was an IGCSE student, not O level, it would have been harder to find resources and books. Despite that, I could eventually get A+ for both subjects! They were wonderful teachers, always friendly. All the time, they patiently made sure that I fully understood the topics. Without them, I wouldn’t have been able to get that high grade.

IGCSE Chemistry & Physics Student, Middleton International School

I was previously weak in Chemistry as I was never strong with my sciences, but through tuition with Teacher Luke, my chemistry had improved enough for me to attain a B3 in the O-levels! Thankful for the help lessons with Teacher Luke has given me, clarifying my doubts and helping me better understand difficult concepts 🙂

“O” level Chemistry student, St Hilda's Secondary

My 3 kids are with Mr Luke for more than 3 years for Math. My eldest son scored 30 marks for his term 1 exam in sec 2. He was worried and requested for a tutor then. After attending Mr Luke’s classes for just a couple of months, he scored 60s in his mid-year exam. And 80s in his final year exam. He is very happy and proud. He continued to score As every year subsequently and got an A1 for his GCE N(T) level exam eventually. My girl was also not very good with math. After attending Mr Luke’s classes, she has been consistently scoring As since sec 1 (she is sec 3 now). My youngest son is also catching up..

Mrs Peh

I started joining Teacher Luke’s class 6 months before my O-levels as my E-math and my A-math grades were not that pleasing. I scored C6 and D7 for my E-math and A-math. However, after I joined Teacher Luke’s class, things were never the same again. Under his patience and guidance, my grades started to show improvement and I started to develop an interest for Math. I was also able to understand every mathematics formula as he explained to us how the formula came about. He does this so that we are able to apply the formula in different contexts. If we need extra help in certain chapters, he would be more than willing to teach us and give us practice papers to do so that we can master the chapters that we are weak in. All in all Teacher Luke is a wonderful teacher as he has the patience that not many teachers have to teach us as long as we are willing to put in the effort and time to practice and learn. As the saying goes, practice makes perfect. Empty our cup so that we can receive more knowledge. Once again thank you Teacher Luke for teaching me these 6 months as it has been a wonderful journey with you. I scored B3 for both my E-math and A-math.

Even when we didn’t understand for the third or fourth time, he would try even harder to find simpler ways to teach us so that we could understand. Scored an A1 for A Math in 2020 O lvls and teacher Luke played a big role in helping me achieve that!

"O" Level A Math student, Kuo Chuan Presbyterian Secondary School

Mr Luke helped me develop an interest for A-Math and Chemistry which I used to fear before starting lessons with him. I looked forward to every lesson each week because I found that I could apply what I learned better when I understood the topics more fully. He has helped to groom me not just in academics but also in the soul 😀

"O" level Chemistry & A-Math student, Ngee Ann Secondary

Teacher Luke is the best Math teacher that I have ever come across. Other Math teachers were all disappointed with me but Teacher Luke did not give up on me even though he needs to re-teach me certain topics, which makes me most touched. Ever since I had the opportunity to be taught by him, I feel that I got back in touch with math as I used to hate math. He has a great personality, taking the effort to go through the questions that to ensure I understood even though it has been taught to me before.

The centre provides a good environment for students to learn. Mr Luke teaches his students with patience and devotes his time for them, helping them in their weak topics in a particular subject. After joining, I enjoy learning Math more with Mr Luke and it pushes me to work harder and pursue more in my studies!

“O” level E-Math student, Pasir Ris Secondary

Teacher Luke is one of the best Mathematics teacher I’ve ever had! He helped me overcome my fear of solving problems in Mathematics and he’s always been patient while teaching me as it takes many explanations and examples for me to understand. I appreciate all the effort you put into teaching and the encouragement you give whenever your students are feeling down. Most importantly, my grades for Mathematics improved after joining your class and I am super thankful for that. 🙂

“O” level E-Math student, Pasir Ris Secondary

Teacher Luke is a very friendly and patient teacher. He made sure that I understood the concepts and guided me step by step when I didn’t know how to solve math questions. He also teaches ways to solve questions in a simpler and faster method which helped me alot. He definitely played a big role in helping me achieve an A1 for my A Math O lvl exam in 2020.

"O" Level A Math student, Kuo Chuan Presbyterian Secondary School

Will like to express my gratitude to Teacher Luke and Teacher Andrew for teaching my son Dexter Math and Science since Sec 1. They have guided him really well and he has excelled in all his 3 sciences and 2 maths with all As! Teacher Luke is not only just teaching but also gives advice as to what should be the path for my boy, school selection, etc. He gives good advice.

I wish them all the best and can help more students. Keep up the good work!
