My daughter was previously having lessons in TLL. my husband and myself felt that it was great. a lot of convenience, and Her results were still ok for us, around 60-70. have been maintaining this range throughout. Not the very best but we were glad she is able to pass and move on smoothly to secondary school.

Fast forward, she is is almost completing her secondary 1 now, and in 2020 she will be having her streaming. In her first few class tests this year (in secondary 1), she didn't do very well. she failed numerous times. my husband and I were considering sending her back to TLL. we believe they will be able to help her pass, but we wanted her to breakthrough the "just pass" results, as what she is learning now will set her foundation and lead to O levels . so we decided to try private tuition. it was a lot of work at the first, as we trial and error. from undergrads tutor, to part time tutor. in total, we change out about thrice for her private tutor, until her current one who is a full time math specialist. am seeing better results (above 80) .

I have a P3 son. He is average when it comes to school performance. I know that my child could do better with proper guidance and enrichment. I have seen this Thinking Cap Programme of MindChamps in Raffles. We've visited the center and sounds interesting. But I am wondering if anyone here has tried this enrichment program?
