Learning doesn’t stop when school ends. We supplement children’s academic learning through initiatives to engage their curiosity and critical thinking skills, and help them with any academic difficulties they might face. In the process, children develop perseverance and discipline as they solve difficult problems and take responsibility for their learning.
In order to facilitate independent learning, children are given topics to research on (such as global warming) and will present their research to their peers. This engages the children’s natural curiosity and sharpens their research, critical thinking and presentation skills. Children also learn how to collaborate on group projects with their peers and gain confidence in formulating and expressing their views.
Academic Supervision & Mentoring
Some children find school assignments confusing and frustrating, and may need a helping hand to guide them through the tasks. As part of our student care services, teacher-mentors will provide homework supervision to the children on a daily basis, while encouraging independent learning. For children who require more extensive learning support, they will be paired up with academic volunteer-mentors from Institutes of Higher Learning, who will provide focused guidance and assistance with their homework.
If your child is struggling with specific subjects and needs sustained tutoring, we will refer them to the Tuition Connect programme which brings in professional tutors at a special rate. Tuition sessions will be conducted during centre hours.
- Primary 1 & Primary 2: $20 per lesson (SCFA: $15 per lesson)
- Primary 3 – Primary 6: $25 per lesson (SCFA: $18.75 per lesson)
For more information, please contact us or visit our centres. For children from disadvantaged families, Project Hope subsidises tuition fees as well as provides a range of holistic assistance. Find out more about Project Hope here.
Life Skills Workshops
Our teacher-mentors conduct workshops to teach valuable life skills to the children, such as learning to do household chores. This helps children learn personal responsibility and discipline, as well as trains them to be independent and take ownership of their family life.
