I am so Proud of Amelia (Pri 6)

Amelia, a Pri 6 pupil from Evergreen Primary School, joined our centre in February. I was quite surprised that her mother chose us as they live in Woodlands. Her mother told me that although Amelia had a tutor, she had been failing her paper 2 English papers. I assured her that if Amelia worked  hard, she would improve.

I am so happy to hear from Mrs Ong today that Amelia has shown a vast improvement. She has done very well in her Prelim exam, scoring an A, a first for her, since she was in Pri 5. In the past, she only scored 23/40 for her compositions. In her recent exam, she scored 33/40. What an improvement!

How did she do it?

Amelia pays great attention in class and is very diligent. She is very receptive to advice and works hard to improve.

This is what I did to help her improve:

  • Expanded her vocabulary (weekly lists and monthly tests)
  • Worked on commonly tested grammar items
  • Taught her how to identify and tackle the various comprehension questions
  • Taught her how to develop a solid plot, create suspense and describe emotions and characters
  • Used guided compositions (proven to be most useful in helping pupils improve) to teach writing.
  • Exposed her to many model essays. She gets lots of practices (at least 2 compositions a week) and constructive feedback.
  • Gave her termly tests and practice papers.

I am elated with her results and her vast improvement.

I must thank Mrs Ong for believing in me and entrusting her 3 daughters to me. After signing Amelia up for classes, she also enrolled Odelia (Sec 3) and Otylia (Sec 4)  for English tuition too.

 

Thank you Clement!

It has been our great pleasure having Clement a Sec 4 boy from Xin Min Sec in our class. An endearing, conscientious pupil, Clement is very responsible and polite. I will definitely miss him very much when he leaves at the end of the year. I am so lucky and privileged to be able to have the opportunity to teach such a self-motivated, kind and pleasant pupil. Thank you for taking the time to write a testimonial for me.

Best regards
Mrs Chung.

I am deeply touched by your testimonial.

I am so touched to receive this testimonial from Waiteng, a Sec 4 Edgefield Sec pupil, whom I have taught since she was in Primary 5. Even when I moved from Serangoon to Bishan, she continued her lessons with me despite having to travel one hour to get to my centre. I am very happy to see how much she has improved. She consistently tops her class in English as she is very diligent, attentive and self-motivated. It helps that she has a good foundation through our comprehensive programme. I am sad that this will be the last year I get to teach such an endearing pupil whom I have grown so fond of. I think I will need tissues when I say goodbye to her in Oct. We wish her success in her ‘O’ level exam and in all her future endeavours.
