Tuition and enrichment lessons are commonplace in Singapore. It is the desire of every Singaporean parent to help their child fulfil their greatest potential. Despite the Singapore education system being one of the best in the world, one can always improve and grow. Enrichment centres have thus been the go-to for Singaporean parents to stimulate a child’s mind and encourage a child’s passion for learning.
Here are 3 benefits of choosing a group-based enrichment lesson for your child, and how LiteracyPlus can provide your child with a fulfilling learning experience:
1. A Greater Understanding of Self
Often, when students end up being bored at school, it may not necessarily be due to short attention spans. Most of the time, students who are bored feel unmotivated and unchallenged. It is possible that not every pupil is interested in what they learn in school. With the structured and exam-focused nature of the school curriculum, students might rarely get the chance to engage in something they are interested in.
On the other hand, enrichment lessons can offer a wide array of resources to help engage pupils in class. With a lower teacher-student ratio, teachers can get to know their students well as individual learners. Each child is unique and learns in different ways. Learners who are easily distracted might be able to focus better in smaller classes. When working collaboratively in a small group, a reserved child can benefit from the additional interaction required .
At LiteracyPlus, we believe in sparking a genuine interest in learning for all our students. Through the use of our thoughtfully crafted teaching materials, we create an engaging learning environment for your child. When we hear children telling their parents that they enjoyed the lesson and can’t wait for the next one, we know we’ve got it right!
2. Acquiring Effective Study Skills
Through enrichment lessons, students can pick up effective study skills. In addition, your child is able to acquire examination and time management strategies.
When learning in a group-based setting, your child can pick up self-directed learning skills, and learn effective and new strategies from peers. Additionally, your child can share his or her ideas in a collaborative environment.
These core study skills help children develop confidence, boost their performance, and develop their own study strategy as their class material becomes more advanced.
LiteracyPlus’ lessons focus on a skills-based approach to learning. We weave in effective methods and answering techniques to help our pupils retain concepts, develop critical thinking skills, become effective writers and speakers, and to achieve their best.
Here’s what one of our students had to say:
In small group-based lessons, your child has the opportunity to interact with his or her enrichment teacher more closely. The advantage of LiteracyPlus’ ideal student-to-teacher ratio is that our teachers can respond to each child’s learning challenges and needs.
With a small class size of 6–8 students, our teachers are able to build a strong rapport and trusting relationship with their students. Aside from assisting in their students’ character growth, teachers can provide personalised feedback and strategies to support their students’ academic development.
