Tang Swe HongProfile and Reviews
★★★☆☆ based on 2 reviewsOverall rating:
Friendly and punctual!
“I felt that Mr Tang was always punctual, and he was understanding when I first began and was not so good at clutch control. Although he nagged/ scolded when I repeated the same mistakes, I know it was for my own good and he was always cool after that!”
Simply cannot recommend
“Pro 1.) Relatively easy to get lesson booking 2.) Car is maintained properly 3.) Doesnt smoke Cons 1.) Teaching method is unsystematic and ineffective. This is because - does not explain the rationale behind what you do unless you ask him - when he explains , he will explain in a harsh tone and further clarifications from the learner are not welcomed as he will just keep quiet even if you ask to confirm - give last minute directions / instruction and fault you if you are unable to execute ( ie :slow down to check ) for safety . -does not teach you alot of the knowledge that you require for your tp test . example : checking blind spots -will rush you during your circuit lesson practice , after each station does not give you feedback to improve . just ask you to move on to next one , questions on how to improve are always met with harsh comments - Paranoid about damaging his car , therefore will not let you learn from your mistakes .he will either do it for you ( example : steering right across a intersection or in the odd chance , that he allows it , he will give unconstructive comments like : " please dont damage my car leh ! " before asking u to do something else . 2.) Unprofessional Conduct . Some of his behaviour include - Forgeting that you have lessons -Charging you for an another 30 minutes of lesson time even if you meet him at admiralty , to compensate for his " drive " time there - Does not book for you your circuit practice even after he promises - will not even mention booking TP test for you unless you insist strongly , but he will still insist that you are not ready even after 30 lessons with him - asking you to drive him around for errands . (to pick up things from his friend ,pump petrol ) 3.) Negative and bad attitude . Some of his behaviour include - Will give sacaratic remark when you fail at doing something . For example : Can you use your head ? or are you a girl ? - negative comments to put you down ,for instance , instead of encouraging you to try to improve , he will instead suggest that you just give up on trying to learn how to drive manuel and switch to auto . Conclusion : Based on my personal experience , I simply cannot recommend this PDI to any learner . His passing rate at SSDC according to TP website ( http://learn-to-drive.spf.gov.sg/services/learn_to_drive/passingrates/private.htm ) is at 17.65% (17 attempts , 3 pass ) , having gone thru a long period of lessons with him . I can fully appreciate why this is so and hope that others will not have to go thru the same ordeal as i did .”
