Cheng Seng SirProfile and Reviews
★☆☆☆☆ based on 2 reviewsOverall rating:
bad attitude and money grubbing
“Registration fee is $80 and I regret not reading Leon's review before. Charges $40/h during weekends, but told me in SMS that it's $37/h. Requires you to pay upfront for the next lesson as well. He's very rude and talks a lot and very fast. He keeps talking and you have to keep listening. This is difficult as you are trying to concentrate on the road and listen to his instructions. Worse, he will suddenly tell you turn right or left in between his mumbling, and when you are slow to react he will complain. During my first lesson, he was always on the phone and talking to people and the car was stopped. He didn't give me a full lesson yet charged for it. During my second lesson, he started to criticised my personal lifestyle (e.g. when i sleep and wake, what i do as a hobby). He even removed his shoes and put his feet against the dashboard. I dropped him after two lessons. Don't waste your time on this instructor.”
Bad attitude. Slurs in speech.
“Like to share an objective review from.personal experience so others won't suffer regrets and waste so much time and money like me. Doesn't teach basic properly. Failed twice and both testers told me I don't seem to know my basics well. (I learnt more crucial basic knowledge from the 2 testers than from him) Speaks chinese only. Worse is he slurs (cannout pronounce words properly) in speaking and speaks fast so his teaching is not clear most of the time even though I'm a chinese. Advice: Choose one that can speak both Mt and eng language as it helps to clarify more things Car is very old, and the steering wheel is not even centred. And he charges $250 for his old car rental for test. Check forum, most testers only charge $200. Wanted to charge me $80 for registration fee (though I did nego down to $50. He's NOT an encouraging nor patient PDI. Likes to criticize and is sarcastic. I even got slapped HARDDD on the hand by him for my 1st time of restarting engine after it stalled as I held it a tad too long. No matter what, I feel a teacher should never hit a student. It portrays a lot bout one's character. Take heed. Overall, after learning 20 over lessons from him and failing 2 test. I find that there are far better teachers outside. Yes Mr Cheng has taught for over 20 years, but it might not mean good. He simply jist become more slack and assumes that people would know after saying things once, and doesn't like to repeat himself, which I find many times frustrating as its also hard to understand him. And his slurring and fast talking doesn't allow him to impart knowledge efficiently.”
