June Holiday Workshop: Essential Skills and Strategies to Ace PSLE
PSLE 2019 is only around 4 months away from now. Has your child mastered the must-know strategies and essential skills needed in tackling the components of different subjects confidently?
We are happy to announce that our experienced PSLE subject specialists will be conducting a series of workshops during the June holidays to help your child learn or relearn those essential skills.
Each of our subject specialists has accumulated more than 10 years of experience teaching PSLE subjects in local primary schools and is very familiar with the PSLE syllabus.
More importantly, they have marked PSLE papers for many years. As such, they know exactly the pitfalls to avoid and requirements in doing well for PSLE.
As educators, the coaches understand that every child is different and has different needs. Thus, the class size is kept very small (maximum 6), unlike many other PSLE workshops, so that your child can ask questions and receive maximum individualised attention from our coaches.
We aim to empower your child with essential skills in a small classroom setting so that he/she would have confidence facing PSLE and NOT walk out of our workshops with doubts, not understanding what has been taught or not learn anything.
For more information about our workshops, please read the details below. Thank you and we sincerely wish you and your child all the BEST in the preparation for PSLE!
