Accelerate learning

The purpose of our tutorial programme is to complement compulsory education in school. Parents need to be clear that our tuition is not a substitute that simply repeats the teaching delivered in schools.

We assess how well the student has understood his (or, her) lessons in school, his ability to critically think about and apply the knowledge. We then guide the student to build on his foundation. At all times, we aim to inculcate good studying habits and proper answering techniques. We aim to inspire your child’s curiosity and interest in the subject, as a motivated student is less likely to find studying a drudgery. Parents should set a reasonable, realistic target for their child, based on the child’s learning ability. This will avoid unnecessary stress for the child.

课外辅导应以提高学习能力为主
学生的学习一定是以学校的学习为主,以校外辅导为辅。家长明确校内校外学习的主次关系非常重要,不能以校外学习取代校内学习。而我们是首先培养孩子的学习能力为出发点,而不是单纯重复学校的教学。我们是首先考虑孩子的接受能力和解题思维。没有掌握好的学习方法和解题的技巧,想要成绩提高是很困难的。我们提倡孩子学习兴趣动态管理,学习有兴趣的孩子是不觉得苦的,而家长根据孩子学习基础确定适当的目标,可以避免孩子承受不必要的压力。

Tuition is not for exams only

Holistic education is more than an emphasis on examinations. We guide students on proper learning habits and attitudes, and focus on transferable skills. Some schools may not specifically emphasize these. Our personal coaching help our students to quickly correct deficiencies and raise their effectiveness. By being more effective learners, our students save time and shorten their learning curve.

课外辅导不光为考试
新加坡教育正在从应试教育向素质教育转变。不管是小六会考还是中学考试,素质教育的要求都越来越突出。我们是从学生的行为习惯、学习习惯等一系列的转变衔接。向学生提供在学校学不到的,在学校学不好的教育服务。通过我们的高级研究创新帮助孩子尽快地补充和提高。帮孩子把时间节省下来,去思考、实践。

Proper effective parenting is important

The influence of the parents is the most significant in the education of a child. From an educational standpoint, most parents are “inexperienced/unlicensed drivers”. Unless you are teaching your 10th child, your best experience is probably that of your own learning many many years ago. Much as being chauffeured from A to B is not the same as you driving the car yourself from A to B, teaching is not the same as your learning years ago. The mistakes that you made, are just as likely to be taught to your child. The skills, attitudes and habits that you never developed or forgotten, will never be learnt by your child.

The good intentions of parents may have unintended consequences. For example, there was a student that came across as intelligent to the parents, considered academically strong by his peers, but regularly failed to complete his test papers and consequently, did not attain good marks. When we delved into the issue, we found that the parent stipulated that the child had to do homework for 2 hours every day after school. Should there be no homework or should the homework be finished early, the parent will set extra homework. Consequently, the student developed a habit of dreaming and procrastinating with his homework opened in front of him, so that he could avoid extra work.

家长也应接受辅导
孩子的教育效果,家长的影响非常大。从教育的角度来看,很多家长都是“无照驾驶”。从教育实践的案例来看,不少孩子的学习问题其实出在家长身上。如一个学生,家长认为很聪明,同学中也有威信。可是经常考试答不完卷子,成绩在班级中下游徘徊。通过了解,老师发现,原来这个孩子的家长要求孩子每天到家后,必须学习两个小时。孩子如果提前做完了功课,就增加更多的练习。为了少做题,孩子就养成了不按时完成功课的习惯。

Frequent concerns of parents

  • My child does his/her homework regularly. Why is his/her results not good?

Ans: The causes include poor studying attitudes and habits, incorrect answering techniques and a below average learning ability.

  • Why is the difference in grades so large for students from the same class?

Ans: In a large class, a teacher is unable to give individualized attention to every student. Those students that adapt quickly to a large class environment will be able to  follow the lesson. Those that adapt poorly tend to day-dream and get distracted.

  • Why is large group tuition not effective?

Ans: Large group tuitions are unable to give specific attention to the weaknesses and deficiencies of any particular student. Large group tuitions do not diagnose and correct poor studying attitudes and habits.

  • How is Home Tuition @ East able to solve the learning difficulties of a student?

We do a deep dive into the various facets of a student’s learning to understand the root cause(s) of falling grades. We then develop a bespoke tutorial programme to correct the cause(s). As the coaching is 1-to-1,  we are better able to target the issues effectively, leading to better outcome. With the cooperation of the parents and student, the grades should improve.

家长急需了解的四大问题:
1、为什么孩子每天都认真做作业可成绩就是上不去?
孩子的成绩上不去主要有,学习态度、学习方法、学习能力、学习习惯等方面的原因。

2、为什么同在一个班上课成绩差距那么大?
大班教学,一个老师上课不能专职辅导每位孩子,有的学生适应能强,能适应老师的教学方法,能跟着老师的思路走,有的学生适应能差,上课容易分心、注意力不集中。

3、为什么上别的辅导班也解决不了问题?
补习班不能对学生诊断,诊断不出学生的主要问题,不能根据学生的个人情况进行针对性的辅导。

4、为什么Home Tuition @ East 的1对1辅导,能全方面解决学习问题?
Home Tuition @ East 的1对1辅导,针对学生进行测评找出学生成绩下降的主要原因,为学生量身定做个性化辅导方案,一位特级教师带一位学生,一位学生享有一个团队,因施教,针对性极强,因此能让学生的学习态度,学习方法、学习能力、学习习惯等全面提升,让学生的成绩提的又快有扎实。

Issues commonly encountered by students 学生的常见问题

[Primary]

The breadth and depth of the curriculum increases from lower to upper primary. Students who are unable to cope may start to feel troubled, pressured and anxious about homework. Their confidence drops and they may start to doubt their own abilities, leading to low interest and motivation in studies. They may become rebellious and dislike school.

Drawing on our many years of experience, we deliver our tutorials in a way that emphasize the learning attitudes and habits needed to adapt to the increased workload. We train them to be independent in thoughts, analytical and methodical in answering exam questions.

【小学】

  在教学过程中,我们发现很多学生由于无法适应小四与小五六学习方法上的差异而出现厌学情绪,畏难情绪、逆反与浮躁心理使他们开始怀疑自己,不再自信,从而使他们对学习的兴趣逐渐降低 ……

我们总结了大量的教学经验,并且得出了一套让学生喜爱学的教学方法。我们十分注重学生在这段过渡期的心理转化和学习方式转化,让他们尽快适应新学习,也注重培养学生的兴趣,强调从学生的思维规律入手,结束所学知识的本质,训练学生独立思考、分析的能力,和解题的能力。

[Secondary 1]

When students initially progress to secondary one, the environment, the teachers and the classmates are all new. It is not easy for school teachers to identify problems with students they are not yet familiar with.  Secondly, the amount of content covered at the beginning of the first year is relatively undemanding. With a major exam at least four years away, students who did well in PSLE may slack off. The poor grasp of core knowledge, the deficient study habits and attitudes, and the ineffective answering techniques only manifest themselves when the difficulty level of assessments increase in subsequent years.

Our tutorial programme keeps students on their toes, on top of their studies, so that any gap in knowledge and any deficiency in skillset can be immediately remedied before any “study debt” accumulates.

【中一】

  中一的知识点似乎比较少,学校的讲解是面向多数学生的,很难及时发现个别学生的问题,同学们很容易放松对自己的要求。一些同学因为考试成绩暂时还不错,就会忽略养成好的学习习惯的必要性,对很多 小问题 小毛病 置之不理。这些问题在题目比较简单的情况下,容易得到控制,一旦难度提高或时间限制严格,就会集中爆发出来,严重影响考试成绩。这就要求学生平时要注意边学习边总结,不欠账不放松,及时提问及时解决,在进入中二后学习就会变得相对轻松。

[Secondary 2]

Secondary Two is a crucial year that decides a student’s subject combination for the remainder of his secondary school life. This educational choice is likely to have an impact on his entire career. The student will have more topics to handle by this year. We highlight those that are more important and more difficult. We ensure that our students have a very clear understanding of the basic concepts, and we continuous check for gaps in core content. A good grasp of the subject covered in secondary 1 and 2 forms a stable foundation for secondary 3.

【中二】

  中二是整个中学生活的过渡阶段,是一个分水岭和转折点。中二下也许所涵盖的知识点是年终考试中出题最多的,而我们的教学在夯实基础,查漏补缺的前提下传授新知识,突破重点、难点,不仅要解决当下,还要面对年终考试。在提高学习成绩的同时为中三做好充分的知识储备,由感性积累到理性升华,由知识体系的完善到科学学习方法的形成,给学员提供全方位的指导。

[Secondary 3 and 4]

If the student is taking “O” Levels, we prepare the student for this exam. The topics and concepts that are a priority in previous years are given special attention in our regular classes. We delve into selected topics and their applications to give more breadth and depth of understanding. We practice on past year papers to familiarize students with their format, and to correct weakness in their answering techniques.

【中三,四】

只有抓到了考试内容和教材体系的内在联系,才能把对考试的准备渗入每一天的学习当中,融入到每一节课的理解感悟。我们对各知识点进行拓展研究,以专题训练为主要手段,帮助学生提高应试能力和解题能力,对各知识点融会贯通,在考试游刃有余。
