Hello Joy of Learning 111, I am looking for help with guiding my children in English creative writing. While they read quite a fair bit, they need guidance in the craft. Please send me a PM. Thank you.

Hi, I'm wondering if there are any composition marking services (pegged to Singapore PSLE style of marking), where a student writes a compo at home and emails it to a teacher who will grade and mark the compo in detail, with guidance on how can he/she improve in some areas, what and how to elaborate, adding in good phrases/sentences to the compo where necessary, with the intent to allow the student to read, compare, analyse and improve.

If you know any, pls pm me. Thanks!

Hi faithj, LilButMighty The Write Recipe, & add on composition reviews. I haven't tried this particular review service, but have received feedback for other EL components from them. They Do understand the national requirements. Besides their exam knowledge, I like the fact that the package is reasonably priced (no expiration date), with a child-friendly interface, plus is well-illustrated.

Thanks sky, good to see you here again. This school looks good. I like the marking sample style. I will try out the composition reviews. I want to give my DS more freedom in terms of writing style, and also want to test his own brainstorming abilities, thus have decided on this over a CW school.

At this late hour, I’m not sure any Centre that is good would be able to do miracles for yr P6 son in a short span of time. Only 3 mths to Sept’s Prelim. It also depends a lot on other factors such as teacher/student Chemistry, how determined yr son will be, s’times aptitude too besides determination & hardwork, etc.

Sorry to pull in some reality. You might also need to watch the level of stress yr child is thrown with in school & at home (or other concurrent tuition).

If you really think it’ll help (but be prepared not to mismatch expectations of good tutors), try Academia at Sin Ming Plaza 2. Heard they’re running a special compo focus holiday Programme this June.

If you happen to stay in the West, you may want to try my dd1 ex tutor Miss Goh. An experienced and dedicated tutor who is strong in teaching exam techniques and content. For further information, you may contact her at 93989072. Not very sure if she still has slot available though.
