At the age of 8, Adam Khoo, our charismatic founder was expelled from school for misbehaviour and poor academic results; forcing his parents to beg another primary school to give him a second chance. He fared poorly in his PSLE and was enrolled in a secondary school outside of his first six choices. Worse still, he had to contend with arguably his toughest period at home where his parents were going through a divorce.
Adam Khoo’s days of underachieving was transformed at the turning point of his education when he learnt to set clear and measurable goals in life and applied powerful study skills that propelled him to top his school in the GCE 'O' Level examinations. He went on to study at the National University of Singapore (NUS) where he was ranked among the top 1 percent of academic achievers and became a pioneer in the university's Talent Development Programme (TDP), the tertiary equivalent of the Gifted Education Programme (GEP) for primary schools.[/col]
Today, Adam Khoo’s personification of developing empowering beliefs and effective learning skills is the cornerstone of Adam Khoo Learning Centre. Our English Mastery™ and Maths Mastery™ enrichment programmes are specially designed to help students develop the motivation, confidence and effective learning skills to achieve top grades in English and Mathematics.

Since our inception in 2006, we have held on to the proud tradition of not cherry picking students based on their current results. 1 of out of every 2 students score A/A* for their PSLE ; with many of them returning to our centres as teenage coaches during school holidays eager to play their inspiring part in transforming the lives of their juniors.
I am proud that my grade jumped from a D to B for PSLE English!
I usually scored less than 55 marks for my English before joining AKLC. Being a dyslexic, language has always been a problem to me. The English Mastery™ programme helped me understand vocabulary and grammar better. I am proud that I scored a B for my PSLE English. Thank you Adam Khoo Learning Centre for helping me overcome my learning disabilities.

Yes!!! ‘A’ for both English and Maths for my PSLE!
I’m so lucky my mum signed me up for the 3days PSLE Seminar held by AKLC in June which was just 4 months before PSLE. I was awakened & motivated by the trainer and realised that I’ve got no more time to waste. I decided to join AKLC for both English & Maths Mastery™ classes. Towards PSLE, I started to like Maths & I improved from a mere 50 marks, Grade ‘C’ to an ‘A’ for my PSLE! My English also improved from ‘C’ to an ‘A’ for PSLE!!! Thank you AKLC & thank you mum for sending me to AKLC!

C to A for PSLE English and Maths
I was elated to achieve A* for PSLE Maths!
When I first joined AKLC, I did not know any of the techniques taught but slowly I got the hang of it. My trainer taught me strategies to tackle the difficult questions. I managed to apply the methods taught to counter the Mathematical problems at PSLE. When I received my PSLE results, I was elated to find out that I achieved A*. The efforts I put in have paid off and the lessons were not a waste. I really appreciate my mother because with her encouragement I had made the right choice in joining AKLC.

My grade jumped from a D to B for PSLE!
Before enrolling into AKLC’s Maths Mastery™ lessons, I loathed anything related to mathematics and many people predicted that I would do badly for my PSLE mathematics paper. I joined AKLC Maths Mastery™ lessons with a D when I was in P6 and from then onwards, my hate for mathematics slowly went away. The camps and lessons conducted by AKLC were extremely helpful and I had learned many techniques to tackle higher order questions. I applied these techniques in my PSLE mathematics paper and scored a B! I recommend AKLC to all Primary and Secondary school students. Thank you AKLC!

My grade improved from B to A* for Maths!
After joining ALKC for about a year, I spent lesser time in solving my Maths questions. I have also improved my grades in Maths from a B to an A* for PSLE. I am very thankful to my trainer for all her guidance and great encouragement throughout the time in AKLC.

I am glad my grade jumped from D to A!
Getting a ‘D’ in Mathematics despite my best efforts in Primary 5 shook my confidence massively. I disliked the subject. When I enrolled in AKLC, I was introduced to new concepts in solving Mathematics problems, such as the Arrow Transfer Model® method. I was instantly drawn to the new methods which made learning and understanding Maths interesting and fun. In Primary 6, I learnt to apply the different methods to various problem sums. I improved gradually, and developed a love for Maths. I achieved ‘A’s for my Maths during Prelims and PSLE. I am very pleased with my grades.

D to A in PSLE Maths
I finally scored an A for my PSLE Maths!
Before joining AKLC, I was one of the lowest 20% in my cohort. No matter how much effort I put in, I only got a D for my Maths. After joining AKLC, my Maths result improved tremendously. My trainer ensured hat we understood the topic before moving on. With the help of the trainer, support from my parents and my own hard work, I managed to score an A for PSLE.
