Hi parents,

I would really like to share with you my dd's creative writing class. As a parents, put aside the tuition fees, the traveling, what we want is to really see our dd improves and to help give them a chance to score.

My dd has been joined a creative writing in amk area. Initially I wasn't thinking much about the centre due to it not being 'branded' like mind champs and stuff. For me to pay $160 each month seems expensive for a neighborhood centre. But guess what, a year now and I am willingly and looking forward to my dd psle next year. Perhaps to some of you, I may be advertising for the centre. But, standing in the shoe of a mother, I will go all out to help my girls and I am sure all parents reading this will do the same thing.

Thus, I am writing this not to advertise but to share a new way to help our children improve. In fact, I have recommended a few parents from kiasuparents to the centre and the mother told me that the children are improving.

So, since I have personally experience this centre and my friends have too. I really would like to share with all of you this. To be frank, I like the small class size of 6 -8, I like the way they don't just throw my dd the composition and let her write or teach her word for word, I like it more as I can sit in and learn. Price is a concern and frankly, having my girls in p6 and sec4 is taking a toll on me financially but, as a mother, what can I do. I have to just scrimp on myself and try to give the children the best i can.

I really urge all parents who need helps in sourcing a good English teacher to go there. There is no harm trying for one or two month just like how I initially thought. What matter most is, we gave our children a chance to learn from teachers whom others recommended. If it turns our good, your dd will benefit greatly :)

Hi, parents
For creative writing class, some teachers let pupils complete the compo in class, some write at home n submit next week, which way is better?

Personally, i prefer pupils to complete the compo in class rather than at home because, parents can help to complete the compo at home. By doing so in class, they become more disciplined and thus easier during exam. This is my personal opinion.

Hi KL28,

I think I may be a little late in responding to this, but from a teacher's perspective, I do try as best as possible to let students finish the composition in class, albeit more for preparing them for exam conditions (planning, application of techniques and writing within a 50 minute timeframe).

That said, when students are newly exposed to new writing techniques, or vocabulary/phrases for a new context, I will sometimes allow them to bring it home and have time to try out these skills/phrases; it's quite daunting for students to be guided and taught something new for half an hour and be expected to churn stellar work in an hour.

Of course, this is my personal opinion, and not intended to be representative of all centres/teachers.
