Hey, I'm new here

I was thinking should I start my kid home tuition next year(K2)?Am I KS?Cos usually I back home 8plus and no time to revise with him. And I think that K2 is impt as they may not catch up during P1.Anybody has been doing that?Any significant result?

Hey

I meant home tuition(1 to 1). He has been going to RC for English class since April this year (k1). But then, it's only held once a week. And he still can't recognise much word

Enrichments seem better at this age.
For example, if you feel he is weak in Maths, can let him attend abacus.

Hi sleepy,

Why dun you try Kentridge tuition class? My daughter, who had phonics class but at K1 still can not read (a year ago)....think after a few lessons, when they taught her how to use those aaabbbccc....she is reading very well now........eg, paparazzi ....even though she does not know the meaning........

hi, sorry, did not read that you meant home tution. i think classroom settings are better for this age group. i am going to enrol my boy too next yr when he is in K1 for RC tution.

I think by sending them to the centre witch give them a classroom setting is good . It helps in preparing them for pri.1. :lol:

Home tution is a bit too early. I have talk to my daughter before . She said that group tution helps her better as it is encouraging during K1-P3.
