+Home Tuition at East of Singapore

ABOUT US

Most students in Singapore receive compulsory education in national schools. Home Tuition @ East is a complementary tutorial programme for young children and adolescents to perfect their core knowledge and skills. Students receive support in their learning journey from highly-experience teachers in interactive lessons, modeled after the tutorial format of University colleges.

“Any fool can know. The point is to understand,” Albert Einstein was famously cited. Emphasis of our tutorials is on understanding of the underlying logical concepts, and the application of relevant skills to produce high-quality answers. Using case studies and representative questions, tutorial students are exposed to different ways to apply those concepts and skills. They are also given variant questions to test their assimilation. This helps to build experience and confidence in the students.

Tutorials are conducted by teachers who are subject matter experts. All are graduates or post-graduates from top-tier universities (such as Cambridge University) in their subject area. They are also experienced, having taught for at least 10 – 20 years. None of the teachers are students, undergraduates or recent graduates. Parents can take comfort in the fact that the expertise and experience of the teacher is not a limiting factor.

Learning is individualized (1 to 1) or limited to very small groups of less than 5. The teacher can address specific gaps in knowledge and deficiencies in skills, competencies and attitudes of the particular student. The student progresses at his/her own pace. Learning tasks are customized to reinforce content competency and desired skills.
This contrasts with the standardized instructions delivered to groups of around 40 students in national schools, and groups of 15-25 students in international schools. The student that is a slow learner will struggle to cope while the fast learner will not feel challenged. Due to time constraint, a student may not receive complete attention from his school teacher.

We plan the learning for the students using conditioning techniques from behavioral psychology. For the learning to be successful, students must be interested, motivated to put in effort to complete the work assigned and to attend tutorials as scheduled. If attendance is intermittent or interrupted by a long break, the effectiveness of the conditioning will be reduced. Tutorials are not intended to be last-minute cram classes. Effective learning is a life-long quest, not a 50m sprint after a year of neglect.

Group lessons are held at Bedok North Road, within walking distances of Bedok and Tanah Merah MRT.

Some parents prefer to have private bespoke classes (home tuition) for their children. Please contact us with your requirements.

“Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten.” B. F. Skinner, Harvard behavioral psychologist.

Mandarin Chinese is the language with the largest number of native speakers worldwide. A student competent in this language earns the ability to communicate with a substantial population of people.

We aim to instill in students an interest for the language and an understanding of Chinese culture, literature and history. We highlight the significant values, morals and principles of life to be learnt, and their relevance in present day context.

To attain mastery of the language, students need to be competent in listening comprehension, oral discussion, reading comprehension and literary composition. We coach students to fluently and comfortably express themselves in everyday situations, graduating to presentation to an audience, expressing their thoughts, opinions, feelings and arguments. We guide students to appreciate and produce different genres of writing, including narrative, expository, argumentative and situational writing. We assist students with school materials if such assistance is beneficial. Our objective is always to enable the student to excel.

华文是最广泛使用的语言。一个精通华文的学生能与上亿的中华,华侨同胞沟通交流。

我们培养学生对华文的兴趣, 提高他们对中国文化,文学和历史的理解, 尤其是其中所教导的重要价值观,道德和做人原则。
为了让学生学以致用,终生受惠,我们利用日常生活,实际情况来教学。老师会提供许多辅助性教材,如报章、课外读物等。我们帮助学生加强听,说,读,写的能力。老师会指导学生们如何分析,了解和描写记叙文、说明文、议论文和实用文。所谓熟能生巧, 学生们会有很多机会发表他们各人的思想,观点,情感和论据。

学生们也必须了解:如果你希望攀上高耸入云的知识山峰,如果你希望从无边无际的知识海洋里游向成功的彼岸,“勤奋”和“刻苦”是必不可少的条件。

书山有路勤为径,学海无涯苦作舟

English is one of the most widely spoken language worldwide.
For the younger students, we focus on the basic rules of the language, including grammar, sentence structure and punctuation, to build a strong foundation.

For all students, we create realistic scenarios, refer to real-world events and give students opportunities to present, explain, opine, synthesize and substantiate arguments. We probe them to think deeply, brain storm possibilities and consider morals, principles and ethics.

At all levels, we emphasis the development of good writing skills. A good piece of writing is a deliberate exercise, carefully  planned and thought out. We focus on the planning, structure and different elements of good writing. Students  usually start with factual, creative and situational writing and progresses to argumentative writing.

We actively encourage students to read from different age-appropriate genres, to appreciate the perspectives of successful writers, to comprehend, critically dissect and analyze writings and to widen their range of vocabulary and writing style.

Maths is a subject we encounter in everyday life.

Whether we are dealing with numbers, reading time or counting money, we are making use of our Maths knowledge and skills. It will be highly beneficial for a student to do well in Maths.

In our tutorial programme, we focus on the understanding of maths concepts. For older students, we ensure that their pre-requisite knowledge and skills are adequate for the level.

In school, students may get the impression that they are learning different topics. Here, we help you to see the relationship between the topics and we show you how mathematical concepts and skills can be applied across different topics. We guide students on the thought processes and the approaches (methods/heuristics) to apply when trying to solve maths problems.

Science is a body of knowledge accumulated through the process of inquiry. The learning of Science can be divided into three broad areas.

The first focus is on the process of inquiry itself. This is subdivided into skills such as the formulation of hypothesis, experimental design, data collection, analysis and interpretation. Younger students often come across test of such skills in questions with key words like “Define”, “Describe” and “Explain”.

The second focus is on mastery of the established core of scientific knowledge. This core is basic, simple and logical. Students need to clearly understand the concepts. We help to explicitly define for the students what they need to know, provide a different perspective of the facts and guide them on the expected learning outcomes.

The last focus is on the application of Science in daily life and its relationship with society. Topical issues will include the ethical considerations of modern scientific inquiry and the environmental impact of human activity.

Students need to excel in these three areas. Our tutorial programme guides students to be exceptional in all of these domain.
