Sarah started Maths classes at LiteracyPlus when she was in P5. She did not do very well for her Maths in P4 so we decided to enrol her at a Centre whose methods would be effective, and place her under a teacher who would be patient in coaching her. Thankfully, Mrs Wong, Head of Maths at LiteracyPlus, was Sarah's Maths teacher.
After two years of Mrs Wong's guidance, Sarah worked hard and managed to score a B for her PSLE Maths. Sarah came a long way from when she first started and we are grateful to Mrs Wong for playing a large part in Sarah's improvement.
Ms Leow has taught me since I was in Primary 3. With her teaching methods and guidance through the years, I managed to do very well for my English PSLE, scoring an A*. Though last year I did not do very well in English, Ms Leow kept encouraging and helping me, and I managed to do better in both my English SA1 and Prelim exams this year. Ms Leow has always believed in me and I will always be grateful for her help in my studies. Thank you, Ms Leow and LiteracyPlus, for your continuous support!
Thank you, Mrs Wong, for guiding Kelven and helping him improve tremendously on his Maths SA2. Kelven no longer fears the subject and has a new-found confidence in Maths. Bravo!
I signed up for the LiteracyPlus PSLE Writing Intensive Programme over the June holidays. I enjoyed learning with Ms Quek. She is caring, pleasant and one of the most motivational teachers I’ve ever known.
My biggest takeaway was learning how to make my story characters ‘come alive’ by giving them more personality and colour, yet have them remain ‘real’ and believable.
I am usually capable of writing a good starter and ending for my stories, but now I’m even better at it! During my course, I learnt many new writing techniques. My narrative compositions are more stimulating and developed. I am also better able to link my story back to the topic that was given.
Thank you, Ms Quek, for teaching me!
Raphael has grown to enjoy writing through his years at LiteracyPlus. I enrolled my children at the Centre mainly because I wanted a place that would teach English writing structure. Not only does LiteracyPlus provide writing and reading comprehension structure, the Centre pushes their students to improve their writing style without forcing them to memorise standard phrases or model compositions. As such, Raphael was able to enjoy writing. Raphael's teacher, Ms Leow, quickly recognised Raphael's potential and guided him in refining his writing style. Ms Leow also helped further develop Raphael's thinking and answering skills for comprehension. We are thankful to Ms Leow for inculcating a love for the English Language in Raphael.
My Maths class at LiteracyPlus is extraordinarily fun and helped grow my interest in the subject. The concepts I learnt also helped me be able to solve tough word problems. Lessons are very focused and my teacher, Mrs Wong, always helps us whenever we don’t understand something.
Joshua has been with LiteracyPlus since the beginning of P6. He found it difficult to score in Open-Ended Comprehension. Hence, we decided to enrol him at LiteracyPlus. At the Centre, he was taught how to be detailed when answering Open Ended Comprehension questions. With the right techniques being repeatedly emphasised, he improved. He scored full marks in his P6 SA1 Paper 2.
The course materials are enriching and informative. His teacher, Ms Leow, gives constructive feedback on his compositions and oral. Teachers and staff at LiteracyPlus speak English well. There is also a library where students can borrow books. All these factors create a good learning environment.
I feel that the Centre is like a cookhouse where my child gathers with others students every week. The skillful chef (Ms Leow) teaches Joshua how to use ingredients such as ‘grammar’, ‘vocabulary’ and ‘showing sentences’ and guides him on how to mix them in the right proportions to create a delightful, interesting and tasteful composition. This is a skill that has been honed and that is now a tool that Joshua can use throughout his life. Thank you LiteracyPlus.
Benjamin has shown tremendous improvement in his composition practice in school. He scored 11/12 in the recent practice and his composition was displayed on the class board. He was very proud of that! Thank you so much, Mrs Koh, for making lessons interesting. He always looks forward to attending classes!
To get my son better prepared for Primary 1, we decided to enrol Ethan for English classes at LiteracyPlus, which was a Centre recommended to us by a cousin. What we like about LiteracyPlus is that they employ teachers who have experience teaching in Singapore pre-schools and primary schools. We felt confident that Ethan’s teacher, Mrs Chua, would know the primary school syllabus well and that we were leaving Ethan in good hands.
Mrs Chua is a very patient and passionate teacher. Under her guidance, she helped Ethan build on his strengths and improve on his sentence writing, vocabulary and grammar. In his recent Primary 1 Holistic Development Assessment, Ethan managed to get a perfect score for English. We were also pleased to hear from his school teacher that he is one of the few students in his class who can write a story on his own using proper sentences.
Together with Ethan, we would like to thank Mrs Chua for her dedication and all her encouragement. Great job!
I have enjoyed my Maths lessons and gained confidence in solving problem sums through the programme at LiteracyPlus. The concept-based approach used by my teacher helped me to recognise the different types of word problems so that I am able to select the appropriate strategy to solve them in the exams. I now find it easy to understand topics like angles, rate and speed, and area and perimeter. I also like the little revision booklets that we made because the important points were presented in diagram form which made them easy to recall.
One of the things I greatly appreciate about LiteracyPlus is their cozy and conducive learning environment. My kids love their teachers and enjoy their lessons. The class size is just right and the pace of lessons is perfect for my children. On top of that, LiteracyPlus has great materials and a solid curriculum. I like the worksheet filing and coding system they have in place for students as it makes it easy for my children to organise their work and refer to it. The staff are friendly and helpful and I've always had excellent customer service. I will definitely recommend LiteracyPlus to my friends!
Sean looks forward to lessons at LiteracyPlus. His reading skills and willingness to read have improved tremendously. His teacher is passionate and encouraging. We appreciate her regular feedback on Sean’s progress and her guidance on how we may support his learning at home.
Lynette joined LiteracyPlus when she was in K2. Since then, we noticed that Lynette has become more confident and has made tremendous improvement in her reading and writing. In her SA2 exam, she achieved full marks for English! We would like to thank her teacher for her warmth and patience in teaching Lynette.
Karis went from scoring 68.5% in her English SA1 to scoring 92.5% in her SA2! We want to thank her teacher for making lessons interesting and providing a conducive environment for Karis to learn in. We believe this outcome is the result of strong family support and the good rapport established between Karis and her teacher. We hope Karis will continue to be consistent in her work and to discover great joy in learning under the loving and caring guidance of her teacher.
Since joining LiteracyPlus, I have made great improvement in my English! My synthesis, grammar, vocabulary and many other English components have improved and I learn good values here.
My teacher, Mr Chiam, is a very experienced, helpful and inspiring teacher. He has a good sense of humour and makes our lessons extremely interesting!
What I like best about LiteracyPlus is the small class size as compared to other centres, and the caring teachers here. Our lessons and worksheets are very fun and educational, and this broadens my general knowledge. I will recommend LiteracyPlus to my friends as they can learn more here.
What differentiates LiteracyPlus from other centres is that they have teachers with heart!
Slowly but steadily, Reuben’s teacher patiently guided him in his English. She helped my son to overcome his fear of the Oral exam, and helped him change from being frightened and mute to becoming confident and capable.
At the same time, she built on his strengths to further develop his skills in writing, and improved his ability to understand Cloze passages.
Without fail, his teacher would stay beyond her usual working hours to spend more time with her pupils weekly. With the help of the teacher and the LiteracyPlus team, Reuben was able to attain A* for his PSLE English.
I have improved in Synthesis and Transformation, Situational Writing and Composition after attending classes at LiteracyPlus. My teacher is a caring and fun teacher. I learn something new from her in every lesson!
The staff at this centre are very approachable and caring. I wish I had signed up earlier!
Ethan looks forward to the weekly lessons and thoroughly enjoys them as he feels he can learn a lot. Prior to joining LiteracyPlus, creative writing was Ethan’s bugbear. However, in the span of one year here, Ethan’s creative writing improved and, more importantly, his attitude towards it changed!
Under the caring mentorship of his teacher, Ethan is no longer apprehensive about creative writing. In fact, he now enjoys writing and is willing to try different genres. This to me is the most remarkable improvement in my son. In this high-pressure education system, it is a joy to see a child enjoy the learning process!
In just 3 months, we could see improvement in Samuel's comprehension and writing skills through his daily work and in his exam score. We also noticed improvement in his vocabulary! We are very happy with his progress.
Samuel always looks forward to lessons at the Centre, and he enjoys his teacher's fun and interesting teaching methods. He shared that she is patient and encourages him to help others and work together with his team.
When Samuel was hospitalised, we were surprised when the teacher called to show her concern. We are very grateful and happy that LiteracyPlus teachers are genuinely interested in their students' studies and welfare.
