JUNE HOLIDAY PSLE ENGLISH WORKSHOP
Skills-based Approach to Comprehension and Composition
For Primary 5 & 6 Students
Learn the Techniques to Tackle the "Killer Segments"
- Start Semester 2 on Solid Footing!
Is Your Child Still Using 'Gut Feel' to Answer Questions?
This is a problem that many students face and it becomes especially glaring in P6.
Simply put, 'Gut Feel' refers to students writing answers that 'feels or sounds' correct.
If they have strong language fundamentals, they can still get away with it in the MCQ segments. However, this issue escalates in the open-ended segments such as OE Comprehension and Composition Writing.
Essentially, your child is giving answers blindly and 'hoping for the best' because he/she DOES NOT have a structured method to write "Exam-Grade" answer.
This is why their marks fluctuate wildly from test to test, and your child keeps 'making the same mistakes over and over again'.
It all boils down to ONE MAIN REASON:
"Your Child Has Not Been Taught the Techniques to Tackle Different Question Types."
In this PSLE English Workshop, we are going to change that. Equip your child with the skills to answer questions confidently, and embarks on his/her PSLE journey on solid footing.
Dread Comprehension & Composition No More!
Adopt Replicable Techniques to Meet the Challenges of PSLE English, Head-on.
PSLE English is challenging because the questions can be tricky and unpredictable at times.
This is where "Answering Techniques" come in handy.
Don't get us wrong, your child will still need to put in time and effort for practice.
The main difference is that they will be able to approach every question in step by step manner, without the uncertainty and confusion.
For example, our "Ace Flip Techniques" for Comprehension, teaches students to analyze the question and identify marking requirements, before reading through the passage. This trains students to pick out the right points accurately even when reading for the first time.
In this holiday workshop, you can expect intensive classes that focus on these key techniques, so your child can perfect them over the next few months, before the PSLE / EOY exam.
We will also go in-depth to analyze different types of Comprehension and Composition questions. Through in-class practices, we will show your child how to apply these techniques systematically and consistently.
Dread the "killer segments" no more!
