Where do you live? Is your child in upper or lower primary level? Growan (Parkway) splits their English into two components for Upper Primary - Writing and Comprehension. DD has gone for their holiday classes and I find their comprehension component to be good. Their fees are a affordable - $280 per term.

IMHO, their lower primary English and writing classes are just so-so but their Comprehension component for P5 and P6 is good.

DD has tried their maths. It's OK. Meaning, if your kid is already good at maths, they can help maintain... Coz they are very ahead eg like how some tutors/parents do, they are a "year ahead". So it benefits mostly kids who are already doing well.

Know nothing about their Chinese classes.
