Any Highly recommended English tutor for secondary 3

Postby Joanne13 » Thu Dec 15, 2016 12:17 am

Hi All,

Desperately need some help for my boy english who score only C5 for his secondary 2 exam. Any good introduction or word of mouth for English tutor?
English is a very important subject and we desperately need help. Not much time to try out too so hope to have some parent reply knowing any good tutor and able to see improve results for his/her kids. I really need one for my boy who going to Sec 3 next year.

Tution agency in charge or tutor yourself in charge no need to reply as prefer word of mouth from parents instead. Thank you ALL.

English is a language, a soft skill.

Analogy: It is not easy for one to pick up French or Thai within a few months if you learn the languages through some courses in Singapore. However, you improve dramatically if you are resident and forced to communicate in those countries.

If the child is not picking up the finer points of grammar, or writing and comprehension methodology, an experienced tutor may help. If the child is not putting in effort, or not reading actively and widely, there is a limit to how much 1-2hr of tuition per week can help...
