Unlike Mr. Phang and his ex-colleagues, most tutors can remember only the schools they taught at but not those they studied at (please Google).

Mr. Phang is thus able to empathise with unlucky students who are brighter than their teachers.

"Research also showed that students unlucky enough to have a succession of poor teachers lagged behind. If the teacher is second-best, the students will still suffer."
Prof. Lee Sing Kong, Director, NIE (The Straits Times Jun 1, 2011)
