Children who have just entered primary school are especially young and malleable. Let our highly trained and caring tutors provide a safe and nurturing learning environment for you child, with a focus on developing your child’s basic reading and writing skills.
Our English tuition lessons follow the syllabus set by the Ministry of Education, and are designed to enable your child to perform well in the exams while inculcating a life-long habit of reading & learning in English. Our lessons plans incorporate a range of activities, including interesting reading materials and language games, to develop your child’s speaking confidence and communication skills.
The Education Lab’s core goal is to give your child a strong foundation in English, as well as to help our students grow to become critical readers and independent thinkers. Ultimately, our English tuition programme seeks to enable your child to reap the dividends of effective spoken and written communication throughout the course of their entire lives.
Our Lower-Primary English Tuition Programme is designed specifically for students from Primary 1 to Primary 3. Each level has their own separate program, however since the syllabus is similar in many aspects, we have grouped them together as our Lower-Primary English Programme.
Reading & Writing Programme: From Primary 1 to Primary 3, our English tuition classes focus on developing a child’s reading and writing skills. As our students become more confident in mastering the basic foundations of English, the lessons move on to identifying different genres of written text. Students also learn how to start inference reading techniques, which will significantly help them in doing comprehensions during the exams. Finally, students learn how to organise their ideas into writing, practice short essays, and to do different types of formal writings (essays, letters etc) in line with the MOE syllabus.
Speaking Development: Students will go through a review of the various pronunciation combinations, including phonetic lessons. Every 2 weeks, students will go through speaking practice sessions, where an interesting story or piece of literature is explored. Our English tuition students will be given the opportunity to read aloud constantly, with our teachers continually nurturing their confidence in speaking aloud.
