"My Philosophy is Efficient & Smart Studying"
"Why pack your child's schedule with countless hours of mundane tuition when he/she can achieve great results and enjoy learning in a short time?"
My dynamic ESFP Program translates to my students seeing quick results in
Our English strategy was borne out of Nicholas' countless years of teaching the subject and the great success he has found doing it. Topping his school in PSLE which earned him entry into Raffles Institution and later into Raffles Junior College, he imparts his best strategies to students through his English Structured Foundation Program (ESFP). Nicholas does not believe in having long hours of mundane tuition without seeing results. He keeps his classes dynamic, fun and most importantly, focused on improving all sections of the English Paper. Our program is built on the major pillars of Grammar, Vocabulary and Written Expression - essential building blocks for success in English at any level. Students are drilled in mastering these fundamentals and then quickly taught to transpose those skills into their writing. Classes are then further tuned to cater to the examination format and requirements at the various levels, creating a very exam-centric approach with carefully selected practices and materials designed to maximize student-improvement in the shortest possible time. In class, he is able to maximise student absorption rate by injecting various interesting methods of teaching and motivating students through the ACE Incentive System. Thus, countless students have improved to an A in their final examinations under his experienced tutelage. The benefits last beyond the exams and serve as a foundation for mastery in the years to come.

Nicholas' 10 years of tutoring has been focused on teaching English in the Primary, Secondary and IGCSE levels. Crafting the English Structured Foundation Program (ESFP), he has found the best method to achieve the quickest results by tackling fundamental language issues. Nicholas imparts clear, replicable strategies to ensure that students are able to carry their in-class performance straight into the exam-hall to achieve consistent and substantial improvements.
My ABC Solution to Common Issues
Grammar is usually the root of the issue. In my years of experience, I have crafted an effective yet efficient method of targeting the key facets of grammar to help student improve in the shortest time possible. If not addressed, weakness in grammar will inhibit one’s ability to excel in writing and scoring in other components of the paper.
B. Vocabulary & Writing Devices
Like the base of a pyramid, once the student’s grammar foundation has been solidly constructed, Vocabulary and Writing Devices will then come into play. With stronger vocabulary, comprehension of passages will naturally improve. I impart these elements through language games in conjunction with the Ace Incentive Reward System. This is a proven dynamic strategy that helps students retain useful words and phrases better.
C. Essay Writing
Writing can be a chore if you have no structure. In my class, students are guided using a structured style of writing. For higher levels, I acknowledge the fact that students may not have time to read outside of school hours, hence, relevant articles are shared and discussed in class to equip students with concrete examples for their Essay Writing.
