    Pan is a very kind and helpful tutor who has not only helped me in my Mathematical studies for the past two years (Year 11 and 12), but also given me a lot of support as a mentor. He genuinely cares about the success of his students, and is willing to take all the free time he has to give extra lessons if we do not understand certain aspects of what we are learning. His constant dedication to his students is shown through the excellent results and improvements that all of his students past and present have achieved. I am so happy that I found Pan as a tutor, as I do not know if I could have done so well without his continuous support and highly recommend him to any student that is struggling in Maths or even needs a bit of help in any topic in Maths. Thank you so much Pan! :)

    Thanks for all Golden Key tutors this year, which has been instrumental to such great success I’ve had this year. My 99.95 ATAR is the ultimate reward. I am very grateful to you and all of the other tutors that I’ve had this year Mr. Pan, Mr. Guo, Mr. Jiang, Ms. Hannah and Ms. Mandy – each has helped me so much in all of my academic pursuits for 2018. I wish you a very Happy New Year and hope to catch up with you in person in the new year. Should you require anything else from me, please don’t hesitate to ask!

    God I was going to give on maths this year as my grades were no way near what I expected them to be. After trying few maths tutor I was discouraged as their teaching style did not suit me and I would have quite maths if my dad hadn't introduced Mr Pan to me. not only did my percentage for each maths test boast up , my confidence level with doing mathematics came back. I felt good about myself. Mr pan truly dedicated himself to each of his students and helped me with my DI as well. his friendly and enthusiastic approach to the sessions made it easier for me to ask questions and clear my doubts. the difference between my first test (66%) and last test (87%) is very significant and I must say this is Mr Pan's hard work. he has worked twice as hard as I have this year to reach the goals that i previously thought were impossible. THANK YOU FOR BEING SO GREAT MR PAN!

    There aren't any questions that Mr Pan cannot answer in his subjects( Maths specialist and maths studies). He simply knows the answer to every single question. He's got a great sense of humour and is fun to work with. His preparation prior to the lesson is just unbelievable . Mr Pan is one of the best tutors that you could ever imagine of having.

    With maths being my weakest subject, I searched for a tutor and came across Pan. He's available nearly all the time, and if you're personally not available for any reason, he does he best to schedule around yours. Didn't score under a B for a single test throughout the year after I got in contact with him (Scored A's in topics outside of calculus). I highly recommend Pan to anyone having a hard time with maths, especially in year 12. Great value for money and literally made my Maths exam the easiest out of all of them. His direct teaching techniques ensured I wasn't surprised by anything in the exam, couldn't have asked for more. Alex

    I began with Pan in year 11, hoping to boost my grade and prepare myself for year 12 mathematical studies and he did just that! as well as convince me to do specialist mathematics in year 12, something I never thought I was capable of. I was able to complete both maths in year 12 with almost straight As, and a deep understanding and love for maths. Pan is truly dedicated to mathematics, and to his students, and always comes to each lesson with great material, knowledge of the subjects, and great enthusiasm. I could not give him higher praise, and I strongly recommend him as a tutor.
