English lessons are created to align with the curriculum that your child is following at school – be it the British, American, Australian or Singaporean system. For our young learners, we create a healthy balance of reading and writing with energetic games and arts and crafts. We incorporate the internationally acclaimed Oxford Reading Tree and Jolly Phonics materials while also using additional materials from our extensive library and activity resources. For primary and secondary students, we provide support in assignments and exam preparation with a strong focus on comprehension, vocabulary building, critical thinking, essay writing and literacy skills.
Our maths program has a strong focus on numeracy, which is the ability to use maths in real life situations. Tuition is crafted to the needs and level of your child and designed to improve understanding, functionality, and confidence in maths. To ensure congruency with school, lessons can be based on the curriculum that the child is following at school. Course content will include basic numerical understanding, measurement skills, geometry, statistics and arithmetic. Naturally, our educators will give more focus to those areas that the student is struggling with so every child will experience a unique learning journey. We can also offer higher-level maths and will incorporate calculus, trigonometry and algebra to help students pass their IGCSEs, IBs and A-Levels.
Science / Stem
Science and STEM are incredibly exciting subjects but as children move up through the school system, they can begin to struggle with these areas for being too abstract and filled with scientific jargon. While it’s important to know the terminology, we focus on assisting your child to understand the bigger picture, the true meaning of things, and we make it relatable and fun. Every experiment, every discovery, and every creation started with a question and we encourage and support your child’s exploration of their questions.
STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and maths, but have you ever wondered why these subjects are grouped together and what it all translates to for your child? STEM is an interdisciplinary approach to learning where academic concepts are coupled with real-life lessons applying this group of subjects in contexts that make connections between school, community and the world at large. It is about moving forward, solving problems, learning and pushing innovation to the next level – and it starts with young minds.
Learning a second language like Mandarin can be challenging for many children – our tuition focuses on making it easy, while catering to students of all levels, from beginners to advanced. Classes are based on the internationally recognised learning program ‘Chinese made easy’ and cover writing, reading, pronunciation, grammar and character recognition before moving on to more advanced skills such as storytelling and improvisation. Sessions can be taken as a stand-alone program or as a supplementary course alongside your child’s school lessons. When it is being taught as a supplementary program, our educators ensure that it is complementary to the curriculum being taught in schools to give your child the best possible learning experience.
Arts & Crafts
Arts and crafts, as well as digital art, are offered through one to one tuition classes and holiday camps for a wide range of age groups. Research has demonstrated numerous benefits for children engaging in arts and crafts some of which are: improving fine motor skills which improve writing, developing patterning skills which aid greatly with phonics and spelling, developing their powers of expression which promote creativity, innovation and build self-confidence.
Drama classes are usually run through holiday camps done in collaboration with Centre Stage School of Arts. These camps blend incredibly fun and educational experiences for your child, often combining subjects like creative writing with the performing arts. Students build confidence in reading, writing and performing in an effortless and enjoyable way.
