My Main Message to all students

I strongly believe that:

Students must be CALM when they think and study.

Students must be able to CONNECT ideas and resources into good train of thoughts.

Students must CONCENTRATE to give their best effort in whatever they do for their future endeavours.

Students must have the CONFIDENCE when doing their works.

Students must CONVINCE themselves and to motivate themselves to be a SUCCESSFUL person in the future.

Students must have the right attitude to develop a CREATIVE mindset to expand their potential talents and skills.

Raymond is constantly looking for new ideas, creative and innovative ways to train, teach and motivate his students. Examinations and tests are part and parcel for UNCLE Raymond’s Tuition. Needless to say, all works and no play makes Jack a dull boy, so Uncle Raymond does play and enjoy sports and games with his students. Uncle Raymond treats his students just like his own children.
