I am also very interested to know as I am seriously thinking of sending her to TLL. May I know for what subjects and whether by attending does it helps your dd? TIA.

Is it bec they don't teach concept or the standard of Math is too tough for the std to cope or what.....? I am worry about what you have shared.

TLL isn't necessary for your child, all it does is let your child practise the questions. It isn't a very smart way to spend your money, perhaps you could spent it on SMOPS Practice books instead? But all in all it still depends on your child's current level. Do normal assessment books to improve overall skills, but start working on Olympiad Math Problems for heuristic development.
This is speaking from experience, was a GEP Student 06-08 with Math marks that were higher than fellow classmates who went TLL. In the end the top students for Math never attended any Math Tuition. :P
For other subjects, perhaps TLL could be of help. Their english course helps if you are in a good tll class. Science is pretty good as well. For Chinese practice makes perfect.
Being in GEP is tough, but part and parcel of your child's journey to success. Thanks parents for your unwavering support, and hope that helped!:)

:thankyou: Jennifer for sharing with us, the parents, your views. Actually I also think likewise as TLL might not be following closely what gep maths syllabus is doing .. As for English and science , TLL might help .. :smile:...
But I think those geppers who did fairly well in Maths, might not perform well in Maths Olympaids and according to my ds MO qns are different from school maths qns..
