Attention : All concerned P4 Parents with Children Who Are Taking SA2 in October
The September Holidays is about to start and you realised that your child had issues with problem sums in the recent CA2 Exams. Once glance at their marks and you simply cannot hide your disappointment.
You wanted to tell him that - You will do better next time. . . . . But when will the "Next Time" come. You know that these learning problems have not be addressed fully in school during Term time and this is one major reason why your child did not do well in CA2. If this problem persist, it will definitely limit the choices on the stream and school he is able to enter.
Every parent would want to see their children perform to the best of their ability. But . . . your child keep falling short of your expectation. You are frustrated and wanted all these learning issues to be addressed once and for all.
P4 Streaming and Subject-Based Banding
FOR P4 STUDENTS: After your child's final exams this year, they will be offered the option of either the standard stream, or foundation stream, depending on their current marks and ability.
This exam is crucial for your child, as if he is put into the foundation stream, or the weaker classes, his learning environment in school moving forward will be affected.
One of my students recently told me that after improving his math grades and getting streamed into a better class, he was extremely shocked at how much better he was able to learn because of the class environment.
In his EXACT WORDS: "In this class, the teacher teaches so much more! In my old class, the teacher spent 50% of her time scolding the students and addressing discipline problems.
This is why parents have told me that its crucial for their child to stream into a better banded class, so that he/she will have the best teachers and classroom environment for success in their PSLE moving forward.
Count Down To SA2 Exam : 26 Oct 2017
The clock is ticking fast . . . Time is not on your side. SA2 is less than 65 days away.
- You can't allow your child to use strategies that are not effective to solve problem sums anymore.
- You can't allow your child's confidence in learning to slide further downhill.
- You can't allow your child's bright future to disappear before your eyes.
Take Charge of Your Child's Learning This September
The September holidays is a crucial time for P4 students to bridge their learning gap and strengthen their key concepts. If he received the proper guidance, this might be the point whereby he could turn-around his results.
September Holidays Programme
As part of our Problem Sums Mastery Series, we are organising a series of workshops to help students bridge the knowledge gap and strengthen their ability to solve non-routine problem sums. The workshops are designed by our chief-trainer, Mr Chris Siew, an ex-HOD and consultant with a leading textbook publisher with 14 years experience.
Success Story of Our Past Participants
He Jumped 2 Grades and Scored a B for His Prelims
Lakshmanan did not do well for his SA1. His parents registered him for our June Bootcamp to improve his results. During the Bootcamp, he was exposed to the exact strategies that our regular students used to achieve 10-15 marks improvement within a short time. He was amazed at the strategies introduced was so simple yet so effective. He practiced the strategies regularly after the Bootcamp, and used it as part of his revision. He surprised everyone by scoring a B during his prelims. His father told us that although they have to travel all the way from Yishun to Parkway Centre, it was all worth it.

The S.C.O.R.E. System
THESE STRATEGIES HAVE BEEN RESPONSIBLE FOR MASSIVE IMPROVEMENT IN STUDENTS MATH SCORE (DONE RIGHT, STUDENTS WILL SEE MARKED IMPROVEMENT WITHIN 60 DAYS)
Strategy Mastery (S) – At different stages of learning, we lead the students through a series of exploration to help them understand the strategies needed to solve various complex problem sums. This experiential learning approach has been proven to help students acquire understanding of maths strategies.
Content Mastery (C) – For each topic, effective teaching approaches and questioning techniques are used to help the student understand the underlying concepts. We make a conscious effort to help students link the content with the related strategies to help them solve complex problem sums.
Optimized Performance (O) - This is the application stage where students integrate both content knowledge with the strategies. We introduce exam questions extracted from top school papers. Through guided practice, students' mathematical skills are sharpened to optimal level.
Review Performance (R) – At the end of each major topic, we will conduct a comprehensive review and communicate the students' strength and weaknesses to parents. This ensures that weak areas are fully addressed before each major exams.
Evaluation (E) : At the end of each stage of learning, our tutors will engage your child in reflection and help them consolidate their learning, construct memory maps to ensure that they can retrieve what they’ve learnt easily during assessments.
