Why is my child struggling to score well in English?

"There are limited ways to improve Language skills"

Argumentative writing

With the introduction of expository and argumentative writing, students who only wrote narrative essays may be uncomfortable with this new format. Completely different styles of writing is expected from them in Language Arts. Towards secondary 2, students are implicitly encouraged to write argumentative essays with limited choices of narrative essays in their exams.

Current Affairs

Most Primary School students don't read newspapers. With the newly added Argumentative Essay, students should have an extensive knowledge of Current Affairs in order to substantiate their points.

Interpreting essay questions

Transitioning from primary school, students find difficulty in interpreting their essay questions and lose focus in their writing. They are unable to come up with succinct topic sentences that addresses the essay question.

Weak Vocabulary and Grammar

The sentence structure and choice of words affects the fluency of their writing.

The tutors are really result-driven and encouraging which really spurs students to press on and enjoy the process of learning. I feel that it has been a very enriching experience and one that I have benefitted significantly from. Thank you for all the engaging, interesting and warm lessons that really sparked my interest to study GP, not just as a subject in A levels but also as a form of self-enrichment. It has been a wonderful experience :)

The arguments in the model essays have great substantiation and elaboration. It is very helpful for students like me who require streamlined notes, fast-paced and focused lessons. I learnt a lot in one hour at Indigo than in a week of school.
