“This is to wish you and your family A HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR. Thanks for all your mails and the links. I have passed them all to my daughters.
I am an 80 year year old retired government officer. I am very much interested in education. I have got my 2 daughters and one son educated. My son is a software engineer working in California, USA. My 2 daughters are post graduates and also qualified in education. Both are Bachelors in Education. Younger one is a Doctorate in Communication and Soft skills. Both have taught in schools and younger one has 20 years experience as a faculty in colleges.
Now both together have planned to start a Preschool in Pune. Pune is an education centre and a metropolitan city. They are all set to start the school from this academic year starting in June.
I am telling you all this as you have been very helpful in enthusing both of them about Right Brain Training. They are going to adopt the method in their school. I am very much obliged to you for this. […] Once again a big thanks.” — C.S.Yami from India, 19 January 2017

“Thanks a lot for sharing. You are always my first and preferred consultant on parenting matters :)” — Mummy SC from Singapore, 14 January 2016
“Hello MieVee I want to say thanks and many thanks for sharing all the valuable information for home schooling. I appreciate your generosity in sharing tools with parents. Also, I admire your passion and love in home schooling and raising your children differently.” — Mummy E.C. , 3 December 2015

“Thank you very much for your experience sharing. My daughter is now 5month old, I came to your blog by chance while searching information about Shichida method. Really hope I can learn more from you.” — Mummy N.A.N. from Vietnam, 27 September 2015
“Thank you mummy for sharing all the materials. I am new to this method and trying to get as much knowledge as possible to help my daughter. Thanks again. – Mummy R.T.”
“Thank you so much for your adding me and your sharing! They are awesome!!” — Mummy C.L. from CA USA, 24 September 2015
“Thank you for sharing these printables. It’s so kind of you, much appreciated. Hope you’ll have a good year end. Take care.” — Mummy R from Thailand, 15 December 2014
“Thank you very much for your sharing. These are indeed very valuable resources for working mums like me who struggle to find time with my 2 young kids.
I envy you for being able to enjoy time with your children & also enjoying what you are doing. All the best to you.” — Mummy C, 12 December 2014
“I just want to say thank you very much! Really great info for me to teach my children. I have 4, therefore we are careful in every cent spent. Your blog and website provide me useful information that I can try some methods mentioned with my kids at home. Thank you so much.” — Cindy, Singapore, 29 Jul 2014
Happy new year to you and family! May it be abundant in water, healthy, happy and blessed one for all of us. I have had the pleasure of reading your blog for almost a year now, and have meant to write and say thank you many times, my little boy always coming in-between.
Now, finally, I’d like to say thank you for the inspiration, the ideas, the well-researched and so very informative sections on both parenting and right brain development. Being a mother is simply wonderful but making important choices for another human being is oftentimes more than a little bit taxing. I am completely impressed with your absolute devotion and very intelligent dedication to your family and with the extent to which you put them first. I prey that there are more and more devoted mothers out there just like you.
I’ve been particularly impressed with the topic of right brain development and the number of such opportunities in Singapore. You have explained these in such detail to all interested parents out there. My family is based overseas and I find the support for right brain development lacking in many respects. One can only hope things will change for the better in the near future, to give the opportunity of good growth to babies and toddlers everywhere alike. I know our personal transformation has been greatly helped by you. Thank you very much!
May the coming year bring you lots of joy, love, and wonderful new discoveries!” — Bili, 17 January 2013
Home Practice Intensive Workshop
“A lot of info shared and it got me interested in the Montessori method of learning besides using flashcards.“ — Mummy B from Singapore, 22 June 2014
“It was great to attend the session and meeting you as well. Considering time constraint the session was really very good. “ Mummy S from Singapore, 22 June 2014
Thank you so much for your time and effort in preparing the workshop yesterday. Sorry that we took so much of ur time.
It was a very informative and helpful workshop and i really appreciate it!:) i think it’s very encouraging and inspiring after hearing from you! I always know that we should let them learn unknowingly, i.e in a fun way or thru games. But many a times, i forgt along the way coz i was v nervous abt things n hope to see results. This is often the downfall of educating our kids. Thank you so much 4 the reminder once again:)
2 things that i take away yest was:
1. process is the key, nt the outcome. Whether or nt they have arranged the cards correctly, whether or nt they have chosen the correct flash card for the “Which is” game are nt important. The important thing is tt the kids enjoy the game. Thanks so much 4 the reminder. I m guilty of focusing on getting the correct one coz i gt upset when n started to wonder if she is learning when she didnt choose the correct card.
2. I have never tried speed reading and i am glad tt you demo yest. I tried it w my daughter yest and i think she likes it. I will continue to try and see how she reacts to it:)
Overall, i have to say i really benefitted from your workshop:) it gives me confidence to continue doing watever that i have been doing right and serve as a reminder or wake up call to watever tt i have to improve, i.e. the topics tt i have for flashcards. I was amazed to see the different topics tt u have. I have nothing to do w maths at all n i feel so bad:(
thank you so much Mievee. I really appreciate your help!:)” — Mummy LY from Singapore 23 June 2014
“Much appreciate your time and expertise, lessons have been interesting, insightful and beneficial.” — Mummy C from Singapore, 23 June 2014
“Great to have met you last Saturday, it’s was a good refresher for me since the Shichida PEC which I attended early this year. Such energy boasters are necessary to motivate myself.
Overall, it’s been a great sharing session :)” — Mummy YL from Singapore, 23 June 2014
“Was surprised to see such a young mummy with 3 kids and your belief in right brain training for your kids.
Thanks for sharing at the workshop. The info were really useful and I’m able to apply it immediately. Of course, i have also realized that I have left out certain areas of training for my girl.” — Mummy MD from Singapore, 24 June 2014
“Thanks, MieVee. The Parents’ workshop notes are just awesome! So much information! Hats-off to you!” — Mummy D from Singapore, 26 June 2014

“I learn a lot of good tips. Hope to get my child on track soon.” — Mummy KY from Malaysia, 29 June 2014

“A lot of information was covered within a short time, so nobody would have felt bored as you moved on to the next topic pretty quickly without lingering on anything specific for too long. You gave enough time for participants to ask our questions (in addition to FAQs) and patiently answered them with practical examples and tips 🙂
Your workshop was extremely useful and I can’t thank you enough for guiding so many parents! Will definitely share the great news about the upcoming workshop to my other mummy-friends and help them benefit too :-)” — Mummy D from Singapore, 15 September 2014
“MieVee is a great educator who practises the best teaching pedagogy with her 3 loving children. She unselfishly shares her experience with her ardent fans and fellow readers. The workshop that MieVee conducts exposes us to the most effective teaching principles by combining the right brain approach and Montessori method. Interacting with MieVee saves me a lot of time in doing all the research as I know she has done all the best studies. I tap on her knowledge and have truly benefitted from her whilst raising my 3 yo child. Kudos and sincere thanks from the bottom of my heart, MieVee!” – Mummy of YJ from Singapore, 27 September 2014

“For a long time, I grappled with the idea of home teaching; trying my hands on the wide range of methods I can find on the Internet, blogs, magazines and enrichment classes. I realise I was doing a bit of Shichida, Glenn Doman, Montessori, etc. At the end of the day, I was confused, overwhelmed and not enjoying it at all. My child is not interested which makes me demoralised.
At MieVee’s interactive workshop, I am able to see the wholesome and purpose of her right brain teaching method which blends [right brain method] and Montessori. This gives me a direction of how I can better organise my flashcards, setting up a routine and stretching his brain functionality. I believe we cannot underestimate a child’s learning ability and MieVee has shown that it’s true! Thank you.” — Mummy A from Singapore, 1 December 2014

“It motivates me to do home practice more consistently, as you very clearly shared about the objectives of each activity and its benefits. Now I have a better understanding of why certain activities are done in classes, eg blowing activity for infants, eye training, speed reading, flashing cards in pictures instead of words, etc.
The demonstration on home practice is helpful to me, and appreciate your sharing on constructive tactics like getting the infant to knock on the card, and giving them some cheap cards like old maid cards to hold on to. The rich content you have in your flash cards also motivates me in wanting to create my own. I also learnt about other Maths flash cards on addition and multiplication, organized / random dots etc, that I would require to beef up on my inventory, in addition to the 63-day dot program.
Your suggestion about starting home practice immediately after breakfast (don’t wash or clean up first) is beneficial to me. I tried this morning, and my 16-month old girl is more receptive, guess more fresh and less tired. Appreciate your sharing of personal experiences and great tips! :)” — Mummy D from Singapore, 5 December 2014
“Thank you so very much for your patience & sharing in answering questions; […] just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed your workshop, meeting you & what a wonderful experience for me. “ – Mummy CY from KL, 25 May 2015
“1) particularly appreciated the Real time demo for first timer like me on how and where to place thumb, fingers when using flash cards, sensory or memory cards, as reading about it is not the same and seeing it . I can visualize it easier, and practice in my head !( as you said, practice makes perfect!)
2) Your willingness to let us see and touch your materials – both self made and bought , so that we can decide what works for us. I I liked seeing your examples of handwritten, hand drawn or Pasted dots and Velcro ones ones which suggestions on where to get the supplies was good….as it was less daunting to me than printing off tons of cards (ie As I could see it still works either way?)
3) your willingness to take questions whilst controlling the flow of adhoc questions . First timers like me would not have known what to ask Prior to class to form your FAQ list….so that helped, but at same time, I think you juggled quite well by replying Broadly enough to ad hoc questions or sometimes too personal to holder/ specific to an individual’s situation which would not apply to others (eg some are so advanced they talk about x y z method or books….vs others like me who are clueless!)” — Mummy W from KL, 25 May 2015
“Thank you so much for conducting such a great workshop! Now I can have a better understanding on how to do home practice with my son and make me realize that my previous approach was not correct. The workshop also open my mind on how to love my son and accept him as who he is by concentrating more on his hard work rather than result alone, and by giving him the chance to correct himself. And this workshop also make me realize that so many things that I can do at home with my son apart from the flashcards, this can make our learning time more fun and enjoyable! The workshop is simple and brief but yet full of useful information. Thank you once again for giving your precious time to share with us! “ — Mummy R from Singapore, 8 June 2015
“It was very enriching. You not only helped me to learn more about the various right brain exercises but more importantly, understand the reasons behind doing them. Before the seminar, I’d thought some of these exercises were weird and unnatural, so i wasn’t receptive to them and didnt apply it to my child. But now that i understand these build up the gut feelings n strengthen his feeling senses, i cant wait to practice with him! The pace of the workshop was just right and you covered the topics and questions that would be on most parents’ minds. You were awesome! Thanks so much once again!” — Mummy T from Singapore, 9 June 2015

“I just want to say thank you very much! Before attend your workshop I got a lot of question in my mind, after attend your workshop, your great info, your great demo and your great explanation solve a lot of my question. Thank you so much.” — Mummy K from Singapore, 16 June 2015
“Mie Vee is a good, confident speaker and doesn’t hold back in sharing her best practices and experiences on how to develop your child’s potential. Although it’s only a 3hr workshop, she does her best to keep presentation points concise and make it informative by elaborating through examples/methods. She also encourages interactivity with the attendees through Q&A sessions so that you get as much out of the workshop as you can. What I like best is she even makes the presentation information available via video post-event so there is always a point of reference you can go back to.” — Mummy P.N. from Singapore, 17 June 2015

Having the videos is brilliant especially with two busy 15 month old’s and being in a different country. I need to start the ‘right brain’ games. But I have started the 63 day maths programme and other flashcards.
I bought an Epson L800 printer which is amazing very economical I would never have known about it without you. The L800 model is not sold in the UKbut I was fortunate enough to find it online from eastern Europe.
I just want to say many thanks” — Mummy S A.B from UK, 15 June 2015
