Primary Maths for P1 to P6
We adhere strictly to the Maths curriculum as prescribed to schools by MOE. We incorporate conceptual understanding, skill proficiencies and thinking skills in our teachings. Our tutors will first impart concepts and skills to ensure proficiency. Drills and practices are put in place to achieve our objective. Students will then have opportunities to discover, reason and communicate mathematics through heuristics and problem solving after their basic competency level has been met. This progressive approach provides a more conducive learning pace for pupils according to each of their abilities.
Lower Secondary Maths for S1 & S2
We have dedicated Maths classes for Sec 1 and Sec 2 pupils. Our tutors adopt a theory first approach. Live demonstrations on problem solving followed. Pupils will then have hands-on practice to further internalise the concepts and application learned. Worksheets are carefully structured according to levels of difficulty. Beyond tackling the tests and exams in Sec 1 and Sec 2, we aim to build a rock solid foundation for our pupils to prepare them for the challenges in upper secondary Elementary Maths and Additional Maths.
Elementary Maths for S3 to S4/5
Our tutors will examine the prerequisite knowledge learned in Lower Secondary for each new topic. Upon which, the concepts are revisited to ensure that pupils attained a comfortable level of confidence to learn the new topic. Step-by-step guidance is applied when demonstrating solutions. After that, pupils will have hands-on practice to further internalize the concepts learned. Frequent revision on past topics are also done. We strive to instil in our pupils a sense of readiness when solving Maths questions of any topics. Pupils are trained to be on their toes to involve not just current topics that they are learning in schools.
Additional Maths for S3 & S4/5
We emphasize on guiding pupils to achieve metacognitive skills. To start off, various thinking skills and heuristics are reviewed and repeated to ensure pupils attain competency. Then we proceed to teach students select appropriate use of problem-solving strategies. Pupils will learn to plan the solution when tackling a problem sum and thereby evaluate by formulating a clear approach to solve the problem. We also encourage students to seek alternative ways of solving the same problem and to check the appropriateness and reasonableness of the answer. We simulate exam conditions by requiring pupils to complete a set of questions within stipulated time.
Primary Science for P3 to P6
We use various mediums, like hands-on experiments, information technology, to facilitate our teaching of Science. We aim to intrigue their inquisitiveness in Science and thereby explore the details of the subject. In-depth contents are taught to let the pupils have a more comprehensive understanding of the topics involved. Structured questions are practised in class frequently with the help of tutors guiding the pupils in progressive steps to derive answers. Our materials are designed to demonstrate the relevance and practicability of the subject concerned.
Lower Secondary Science for S1 & S2
The lessons for Sec 1 and Sec 2 are introductory knowledge for the three branches of Science in Physics, Chemistry and Biology. Comprehensive study notes are provided. As Science is a knowledge intensive subject, we do not merely go through the notes to impart theories lest diminishing the interest of the students. In fact our pedagogical approach is to implement interactive media to enhance the learning experience. Pupils are then able to observe the fundamentals better and appreciate the relevance of their learning. Similarly, we want to give our pupils a solid footing as they progress to read Physics, Chemistry and Biology in upper secondary.
Physics for S3 & S4/5
Students get a robust mental workout through pondering, probing and making sense of a Physics concept. Tutors facilitate this by means of demonstrations using our touch-based learning system, sharing videos clips on experiments carried out in Science laboratories online. This kind of self-discovery learning ensures pupils to have a last long impression of their acquisition of knowledge. Pupils then accelerate their internalization of the subject matter through rigorous hands-on attempts on application questions. Common misconceptions are highlighted and corrected as well.
Chemistry for S3 & S4/5
We engage pupils in a comprehensive approach in learning Chemistry. To highlight an example, many pupils tend to memorize different permutations of chemical formulas and as a result, always struggle to write chemical formulas correctly on their own. Instead, we teach them to integrate the Periodic Table and knowledge of Valency to optimize the efficiency in assembling chemical formulas. This shall bring ease to the next level of learning when students handle balancing of chemical equations and perform chemical calculations. Furthermore, when students are competent enough with this skill, they will be able to grasp the contents of subsequent related topics effectively.
