PSLE ENGLISH HEADSTART PROGRAM
Tackle the 'Killer Segments' Head-on, with Clearly Defined Techniques
Get Started with PSLE Preparation 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 Comprehension Cloze, OE Comprehension and Composition Writing.
Essentially, your child is 'guessing' because he/she is NOT using a structured method to derive the answer.
This is why the 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."
Our PSLE English Program aims to change that, so your child embarks on his/her PSLE journey on the front foot.
Dread Comprehension & Composition No More!
Adopt Replicable Techniques to Meet the Challenges of PSLE English, Head-on.
Just like any subject, 'Techniques' require time to practice and master.
They are the "Formulas" in English, and provide a step by step structure to approach any question in PSLE English.
For example, one of our "Ace Flip Techniques" for Comprehension, teaches students how to analyze question requirements quickly before reading the passage. This helps students identify the right points accurately even when reading for the first time.
We want to equip your child with these techniques before school reopens so they can master them over the course of the year.
To prepare your child for the PSLE, we go in-depth to analyze different types of questions in Comprehension and Composition. Through in-class practices, we will show your child how to apply a set of techniques to answer questions systematically and consistently.
Dread the "killer segments" no more!
