Hi, my niece was with the monster but she says that she doesn't understand and learn a lot. They will read through and run through the picture and in a way just guide the kids. So at the end when she does compo on school, the marks vary a lot. I think a lot of tuition centre are too spoon feeding. Currently she is with another centre. So far not bad. She showed me the worksheets and I'm thinking of sending my dd there. Cause they teach different way to start and end compo which I think is quite different from the currently tuition centre my dd is in. It is cheaper than the monster and her class only has 6 students. I only concern is travelling as it is in amk. I am thinking of heading down to check up the curriculum first.

PM me if you want a quality private tutor for your child.
I know of a lady tutor who teaches very well, but her rates are a bit high.

If he loves it, is there a need for a tutor? You can give him feedback, and at this age, that's all he needs.
