Extraedge Education Centre - Discussion

Postby eyktay » Wed Jul 01, 2009 3:05 pm

Dear all,

Any mummies who send their kids to Extraedge Education Centre?
Add: 14D Kensington Park Road

I'm asking particularly for their Science classes.

MTIA!

sounds familiar
i think my sis sends her son to that sch since very young
she told me to bring my kids there for science coz they do very hands on stuff
but i havent got down to it, not impt yet since my kids only presch i guess
but i remember my sis is very impressed by the way the teacher teach them answer sci questions and say got good track records for psle
not sure, my kids still too young i guess
when they are in p3, maybe i'l bring them there and try

Hi all,

Anyone heard anything about a good place for tuition for ALL subjects in the North or North East?

Hi eyktay

ExtraEdge Science class - I believe this is now taught by a Mr Peter Back who used to teach in Parables at Work. Mr Back was formerly from Learning Lab. Mr Back was also the personal tutor for the RGPS girl (Indian whose parents both are doctors) who was the TOP PSLE performer in the year 2006. No personal experience with Mr Back... was just told by my friends.

Hi ekytay

Adrian... No idea at all. Was told by fren that TOP Malay PSLE student Haikal from Rosyth was with Mr Peter Back at Parables after he quit Learning Lab.... then she asked Mr Back the difference between GEP syllabus and mainstream syllabus since at Parables they used to show the picture of the 2006 PSLE TOP student. Mr Back then said something about key words for Science and then told her that he will be with Extra Edge. And another friend told her that her friends from St Nicholas go to Extra Edge and mentioned Mr Peter Back's name. Personally I have no experience with them.

Hi 2centsworthy,

Do you know how much he charges? Does he work with average students, can they improve significantly?

Hi,

Did anyone eventually sign up with extraedge???

I called and for P3, they have a current school teacher who is teaching the class. Said to be young and good with kids.

Any experience to share? I am thinking of putting my P3 so that she has a better time learning science.
