I have learned quite a bit from Mr.Jit in a short span of 2 weeks and I can already see changes in how I write and approach the compre paper. Your effort and teaching style makes the tuition value for money. Its a little ex, but you are a pro, even more so than my teachers in school. Thanks Mr.Jit. I did good for my promo's.

Your patience and warmth is fabulous. My son can be stubborn at times, yet you always managed to get him engaged in learning. He now engages us with his GP work and we are learning at the same time.
