ATTENTION ALL SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS!

Find out why English has been a
BIG PROBLEM for you and why
OUTDATED or FORMULAIC learning methods for English may be
DESTROYING ALL YOUR EFFORTS to succeed!
Does any of the following describe you?
-You are always 'hoping' for a good English grade after taking the exam...
-You are starting to believe that there is nothing you can do about your English (or maybe you're already convinced)...
-You have been attending English Tuition classes but you don't see any improvement...
-You have gone through tons of practices and assessment books and they don't seem to be making any difference...
-Your teachers and tutors are giving you all kinds of strange-sounding acronyms and formulae to remember, like P.E.E.L, P.E.D.E.X, F.A.S.T, A.S.A.P...or maybe even cute ones like C.A.T, R.A.T, O.W.L etc.
(quick advice: don't use those if you want real improvement)
If any of the above strikes a chord with you, READ ON...
The Importance of English
As Singapore's leader in FAST and DRASTIC improvement for English, many students and parents have asked us if English is the most important subject.
The short answer is... IT DEPENDS.
The truth is, there is no such thing as 'THE MOST IMPORTANT SUBJECT'. It all depends on your personal situation:
If you are passing English but failing all your other subjects, you will have to focus on those first...
If most of your R5 subjects are in the 'Green' (pass and above), English WILL MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE IN YOUR L1R5.
Yes, your English grade will mean the difference between entering the JC/Institution of your dreams or...
missing it by a hair's breadth!
Sadly, even after knowing the importance of English for the 'O' Levels, most students still procrastinate on taking action and persist in ineffective methods like:
Writing practice essays without getting detailed feedback
Completing assessment book practices and marking their own work based on the given answer keys
Reading phrasebooks and guidebooks in hopes of having a nice phrase to insert into their essays (don't do that!)
Ingraining rigid formulae into their thought processes
If you have been doing any of these, don't start blaming yourself! Many of such practices are perpetuated by countless tuition centres, tutors and even institutions...
Many centres fall into one of the following traps:
ROTE LEARNING -
Putting students through tons of practice papers with little feedback and forcing them to memorise words and sentences. Painful and Ineffective.
FORMULA/ACRONYM BASED LEARNING - coming up with long lists of acronyms and self-invented 'formulae' for students to recite. Some even have 'Cheat Sheets' and 'Diagnostic Tools' as a quick fix. Sadly, these are just crutches.
GENERIC ENGLISH SKILLS & STRATEGIES - Centres which offer classes for PSLE, O LEVEL and A LEVEL are probably using generic English strategies across all their classes. They may claim to be English Specialists, but ‘English’ is a very broad term.
OVERLY SALES-ORIENTATED -
You know the type. Complimentary consultations, Free Parent Workshops and many more. Tutors of such centres are spending over 80% of their time on sales! Good for the new customer. Bad for the existing student.
Many tuition centres simply do not have the expertise to help you. Some may even have their priorities mixed up.
Why Most Tuition Centres Can't Help You
Here are the top few reasons why students trust us:
Everything covered in our programme has the purpose of bringing you one step closer to mastery of the exams.
HYPER-EFFECTIVE TEACHING APPROACH *CLASSIFIED*
We use a revolutionary teaching approach pioneered by Harvard University. Via this approach, you will begin to understand the thought process and rationale behind every answer. This is a level of critical thinking that is beyond what can be achieved by typical mass-market programmes.
PROVEN & BATTLE-TESTED STRATEGIES AND TECHNIQUES
These are real strategies and techniques that top students use to get a consistent A1 for English. Top students always aim for consistency rather than the one-off fluke shot. With these tools, top students are able to achieve an ‘A’ grade even on a bad day! These tools are closely-guarded secrets which are almost never discussed in schools.
