New Year, it’s here!

The old is gone. 

The new has come.

Welcome 2018 with open arms! 

2018 begins with me finally creating and producing my very own materials. I have been procrastinating and sitting over this for quite some time, till I was challenged by a respected gentleman, well versed in the business and education arena . Will share more on him later. It’s not easy pulling all these materials together (messy archives in the lappy and brainy) as it takes alot of discipline to sit down to produce it. Try sitting down peacefully with 2 hyper active 4yo and 22mo, on top of my own tuition lessons. Am proud reflecting back on the journey of 2017.

These sets above are the final compilation for my existing students, ranging from p1 to p6.

PSLE English Guide for writing and comprehension open ended questions. These 2 components are usually the killer areas enough to snuff out a student’s chances of getting an A or an A*. I have compiled a pretty good database of how to avoid making such mistakes. This guide book also includes improving a student’s oral skills, an area which can score well.

Science Investigating Tasks. Who doesn’t like experiments. Even my 4yo boy will hanker and get himself involved when he is at home and when I am conducting experiments. This pack is action packed with hands on activities to complement the topics my students learn in school. It’s no secret that most schools are starved for time and the subject hours for Science are inadequate for a student to grasp a topic properly and sometimes school teachers will skip the experiment parts to cover syllabus. I was guilty as charged back then. That’s why I hope this pack will allow my students to further comprehend what is taught in school and reinforced using experiments. I believe this connection helps a child greatly.

Lower Primary Writing guide. I always have a special spot for lower primary students, especially when I headed a lower primary level in an ex school previously. This set is prepared for my p1 and p2 boys, including my nephew. This book aims to further enhance their writing skills, and fluff up their vocabulary when writing composition. I love to challenge my students to add an adjective to any nouns. E.g., a table or a wooden/plastic/metal/ table? Once they have this habit, it becomes natural for them to describe more in their writing. That got to start young.

There are a few more in the pipeline and will share more in the next post.
