Between The Lines is very different from other tuition centres as the lessons are always interesting and they also have a conducive environment for learning. I enjoyed the lesson about punctuation as my teacher showed us some slides which had sentences that carried different meanings the moment there was a change in the punctuation in each sentence. This lesson made everyone in my class laughed.
They take the time and effort to explain the rationale behind their approach to different questions instead of simply giving us structures to follow. This gives me greater confidence during exams as I know what I am doing.
They put in 110% commitment into our learning by understanding individual problems, making sure we act on our weaknesses and teaching us to view things from many different perspectives. They are not just teachers, but also mentors.
