Kelly recounts the empowering beliefs and exam skills that she had picked up from the 3-day PSLE Seminar organised by Adam Khoo Learning Centre. It was a wake-up call for her to work hard for the PSLE.
When my Dad first asked me if I wanted to attend the PSLE seminar, I was reluctant. I thought it was going to be a boring workshop. I was wrong. The seminar was fun and meaningful. I learnt various exam skills and study techniques such as: drawing informative mind-maps, easy methods to solve tough word problems and effective time management skills.
Life changing experience
Furthermore, the seminar gave me a huge wake-up call as to how precious little time I had left to prepare for my PSLE. It was only after the PSLE seminar that I started to motivate myself to work hard for PSLE.
Even after discovering several effective methods for scoring well for Maths from the seminar, I was still eager to learn more. Hence, Dad signed me up for classes at Adam Khoo Learning Centre.
Developing a love for learning Maths
AKLC Maths classes are always enjoyable and have helped me develop an interest in Maths. I have truly benefited from the classes because I can consistently score distinctions now.
To teach is to learn twice
After graduating, I returned to the PSLE Seminar as Programme Director rather than a participant. I gained yet invaluable new experiences honing my leadership and organisational skills. As the Programme Director, I learnt first-hand how a massive public event, such as AKLC PSLE Seminar which is attended by more than 800 participants and parents annually, is planned and executed. For instance, I had to handle the minute by minute coordination for the different segments of the event. I learnt to give clear instructions when delegating tasks to more than 30 facilitators and student coaches. In addition, I also learnt how to focus on to delegate different roles and responsivities to various individuals according to their strengths.
Learning beyond classroom
The experiences I gained through my journey with Adam Khoo Learning Centre have benefited me in life. I utilise the study techniques whenever I am preparing for my examinations. I will also not forget the life skills, such as being flexible to changes, speaking confidently and inspiring people around me by giving my best at all times. I believe all these skills will serve me well in my future endeavours”.
