Since you’re reading this, I believe that your child didn’t do well for their Sec 3 SA2 English exam, right?
If so, you have every reason to worry, especially if your child is taking the GCE O/N Level exams in 2017.
That’s because, as you probably already know, English is an extremely important subject for the GCE O/N Levels.
It’s compulsory to add in its grade no matter which post-secondary path your child chooses to take – that is, English is a compulsory L1 to be calculated into the L1R5 score to enter Junior College, and the L1R4 score to enter Polytechnic.
And at this point in time, the clock is ticking…fast. There’s only less than 1 year to your child’s GCE O/N Level English exam!
However, as shown by your child’s most recent English exam results, they’re still unprepared to tackle the major exam next year.
Yes…terribly unprepared… even after the countless lessons in school and perhaps tuition!
But before you panic and hurry off to find just another English tutor for your child, I would like to offer you a deeper understanding into what could possibly be the real reason why your child didn’t do well.
Clue: It has something to do with what actually goes on during English lessons.
You see, this is a typical classroom scenario – your child enters the classroom, and takes out their homework or other assignments to work on. They would only approach the teacher if there’s any problem encountered.
Slightly “better” teachers will provide worksheets for your child to complete before going through the answers.
However, these answers can only work for that particular worksheet alone, so your child would have in actual fact learnt little to no skillset to apply in the exam.
All the above point to one glaring sign – reactive teaching.
This means that your child’s English shortcomings might be corrected only when mistakes are made. In other words, most of the time, these teachers don’t know what your child doesn’t know.
If this hasn’t raised a huge red flag for you yet, it should!
Because how can your child be expected to do well in English, when there’re actually so many blind spots in their skillsets that have never been brought up by their teacher or tutor and addressed?
That’s why we teach English differently at EduEdge Learning Hub, where we consciously practice proactive rather than reactive teaching.
We do so by strictly following a meticulously designed in-house year-on-year curriculum that covers nearly every single skillset required to tackle all components of the latest GCE O/N Level syllabus.
Every lesson is purposefully geared towards a specific learning outcome, and is structured such that your child will go through 3 levels of reinforcement to achieve that outcome!
For starters, we assign 2 Language Specialists to each class, so that every student will get double the amount of expert attention!
The first hour is dedicated to demonstrating a particular skillset. This is followed by group work, which is very important for students to apply what they’ve just learnt, as well as for the Language Specialists to check for understanding and address learning gaps when necessary.
Finally, homework is assigned to reinforce the same skillset, and will be carefully assessed by Language Specialists to ensure that students fully comprehend and master it before moving on to a new skillset!
This ensures that no stone is left unturned in your child’s educational journey to consistently acquire the essential skillsets to Ace the GCE O/N Level English exam!
Remember – your child’s critical year (2017) is arriving very soon (in 2 months, to be exact).
Are you still satisfied with providing just reactive teaching for your child, and run a huge risk of having several blind spots in their learning go unaddressed?
Or would you rather give your child the best preparation that they can possibly have, so that they will be able to conquer this major exam with the greatest confidence and results?
To prove that we walk the talk – here’s some of the stellar results that our students have achieved in the recent GCE national exams, after choosing to undergo the best preparation with EduEdge:
So if you’re ever ready for your child to stop wasting their time in this make-or-break critical high-stakes year and achieve the same or even better results than our students, do hear us out!
