Sunny Yee, Founder of Jom Tuisyen, who has 39 years of experience in Additional Maths & Physics said, “We are delighted to partner with AirAsia Academy to be able to reach out to more students in Malaysia especially those who need the extra help catching up with their studies from all income groups in the country. All our learning content and videos are prepared and created by very experienced teachers, as depicted by the syllabus laid out by the Ministry of Education of Malaysia. Students can select any difficult subjects or topics or even subtopics and listen to the videos as many times as they wish, anytime, anywhere. I strongly believe that to excel in any subject, students must build up the fundamental foundation (which is known as INPUT LEARNING). Once this is grasped, then students may attempt any workbook or notes from any reference books or textbooks. This will be a great chance for all students in Malaysia to catch up in their learning they may have lost during Covid-19 and become more knowledgeable and more competent as they get ready to head out into the ever more competitive world.”
