The Good and the Few

One of the toughest things one can do is to work in the day and go to school in the evening. This is my story, and coincidentally this was Jason's story as well.

It is a unique challenged to stay focused in class after dinner and the fun really begins onward of 7pm when the lecture starts to get into the intense stage. I managed to pull through for most of the year and since the course is coming to an end wasn't sure if I could keep at it as each module is noticeably harder than the previous one.

Then I met Jason. He came into the room and looked like a soft spoken and gentle person. Then he surprised all of us when he started to teach. Scarcely have I ever seen such versatility and high energy in a teacher before. He never failed to expound upon the Marketing Communications theories and correlated these with practical applications and always used common everyday terms to get his message across.

He did this consistently, everytime. A really energized person, a good teacher, a good communicator and a good friend. On occasion he would stay back after class and help students whether they had course related questions or needed help with deciding which specific marketing field to join or which university to apply to.

He is a unique person and I hope and wish that schools can get more teachers like him. I could use a plethora of hyperbole in my expression of how good he is, but it would fall short. Mostly what I feel and would like to convey would be a humble emotion of "sincere thanks."

Jason you are the only lecturer that our class clapped for after the lectures. We will miss you, and wish from the bottom of our hearts that you will find a great abode where you decide to call home next.

I hope to see you again. Warmest regards!

It is really awesome having Jason as a lecturer in the module- Marketing Principles.

He is definitely passionate in teaching, tons of patience, and of course his sense of humor in some theories. He'll probably shake his head if you apply the theories wrongly when it felt like he explained a thousand times- but still willingly guide you through the tough times.

Although, it is a very short period of time that I've attended your class, i really do appreciate the efforts and the motivation.

Overall it is a great experience ! Thank You Jason!

Wish you all the Best for your future endeavors!!!

Superbly memorable lessons

It is a blessing to have Jason as a lecturer, especially for a module that can be dry if taught solely based on the textbook.

Jason is very funny and entertaining but at the same time, is very serious in his lessons so that they bring the points across in a highly memorable way. His lessons are very casual and lively that constantly engage his students. Sometimes you may wonder how someone can be so witty and quick thinking at the same time to be able to keep injecting humor in his speech.

You can tell that he is very passionate in teaching his students, and is very thorough in his lesson preparation. His guidebook is filled with papers every few pages, which may seem very unusual and messy. But these papers are all his personal hand-made notes for every lesson, which he refers to when making fresh notes for the class during lessons.

I really appreciate this dedication of his, and am thankful that my learning about marketing was made simpler and easier to comprehend. I also applaud his effort to want to make every lesson count.

Sometimes, he gives mini education/life/career guidance talks to the class, which I feel is highly enlightening and enriching.

In short, I've enjoyed his classes very much and have taken a lot away from his lessons. Jason is by far, the best lecturer I've ever met, and if all other teachers/lecturers were like him, I think everyone would look forward to attending school.

Thank you, Jason!

Passionate and qualified educator

Jason is passionate about teaching and sharing knowledge. He is very clear in his lectures, making understanding a breeze. Humour seems to be his forte too.

But all in all, his classes are one of the best I've ever taken and I think more educators in Singapore should take his approach in being passionate when it comes to teaching.

Interesting teacher

A funny, interesting and easy going lecturer who gets along well with his students. Took Principles of Marketing and Introduction to Mass Comm under him and it was easy to understand his teaching. A very approachable lecturer if any questions about his classes need to be answered.

Looking forward for the coming lesson and I\'m blessed to be able to attend your class. A big cheer to you!!

1 word to describe 'POWERFUL'

It's hard to put a measurement on the lesson spent with Jason Tan, but all I can say that this 4 hours of my time is definitely worthwhile. All i can noticed from lesson 1 & 2 was laughter and 100% attention from the class. Jason was able to constantly engage with us by sharing with us his personal experiences(fun) which I think it can be applied immediately in all walks of life. All in all, I enjoyed Jason sytle of teaching and look forward to next lesson.
Kudos* Jason Tan

Brilliant Workshop

Dear Mr Jason,

First of all, honestly, I've heard quite a lot about you. People said you are a fun but very effective lecturer. At first, I didn't know whether they were right or not but now I know that they are telling the truth.

I attended your workshop about Study Skills today and it was very useful for me. (Fun too, haha) I enjoyed it very much and I bet your tips on how to study will be able to help me in the future. So I wanna thank you for that!

It's a sad thing that I couldn't experience being taught by you though. Haha. But anyway, may you have a great life ahead! Wish you all the best!
