New student, good learning attitude

Accepted another tuition assignment referred by a friend. As it is the exam crunch, I ‘show hand’ed some of manipulatives and did a recap of key topics. He has a good learning attitude and it makes learning more enjoyable for him. Making lessons fun allow students to absorb information and motivated to want to know more. Glad this lesson was well spent!

Busy… like daddy

Inspired by what the dad always does at home, the boys naturally mimick their father’s actions, small one included. Learning starts young.

Kai’s photog skills

He was supposed to say ‘123’ before snapping, but I would say he did a great job taking a picture of me and his little brother. We had fun cafe hopping and ended the day with a bowl of bingsu.

Recap of Magnets 

He had a loooong day in school, so I did a quick recap for him first, so that he’s not so ‘dead’ when doing his English paper. Children love hands on and he had a ‘magnet-ficient’ time playing with my manipulatives. Of course, at the end of it, I made him do a concept map with the key words for that topic. Not a problem for him!

Cells & Microscope

My p5 girl having fun with the scope. It was supposed to be an English lesson, but she ‘begged’ me to teach her some Science. In fact, I only have English class with her, as I’m full at the moment to carve out another lesson with her. Accommodated her request and did a 30 min quick recap on her topics. Not that my English lesson is boring, but she had a rough day in school and she wanted to do something else. That’s the beauty of individualized learning, lesson is paced according to the child’s learning curve. Glad I was there to help her manage her emotions and she was back to her bubbly self. Worth it!

He Is Risen, indeed!

4yo son attempted to write this today. I was surprised he remembered his Sunday class lesson. But then again, why would I feel surprised? Boy is getting older, he is able to express better and I should celebrate! 

Celebrate my son’s gaining independence, but the most important celebration is at the Cross! Death has no sting and Christ has risen, He IS risen, indeed!

Electricity 


My p6 boy had an electrifying time tinkering around with the manipulatives that I’ve bought. Again, needless to say when it’s the ‘time’ of the lesson again, he’ll spring out of his chair! Science is fun!

Better than me

This lovely boy did what I could not do, ie fix gadgets. I am obviously not a ‘read manual’ kind of person. I loathe reading instruction manual, so I’m very glad I passed the buck to my student. He’s p5, a little dyslexic (don’t really like to label children) and he’s very keen to help me fix it up. His talent is clearly in this area as he’s able to understand the manual effortlessly. Better than me, the teacher! His 5 min break was up and he could fix half, an effort well lauded for. He promised to fix the other half after the break, which he did. Full picture with the skeleton to be continued next week…
