Do YOU trust Adam Khoo?

Postby msrq » Sun Jun 09, 2013 6:18 pm

Hello fellow parents,

Went for a recent adam khoo workshop introductory workshop and had a 2-3hr session on how to unleash potential of my child. The $2k price seems a bit too steep, but the talk gives even the adults there some motivation and adrenaline. Contemplated for very long, opportunities and cost. What do you guys think?

My son (P6) went for the workshop arranged by his school and he thinks it is useless.

My son's sch had also arranged Adam Khoo to teach Maths before PSLE. He feels that he didn't learn much from them cos the trainers spent most of the time cracking jokes.

Hence, many students enjoyed the 'lessons'.

I would rather spend the few thousand on tuition than attending those talks. Those motivational talks are useless if the child is weak. Use the money for 1-1 instead. If he/she is good in studies, why would I still need to spend money for that??? This is my opinion...btw, does Adam Khoo conduct those talks or get his employees to do so?

Kids will b kids. Can their motivation last just after a few talks? If can, mothers don't need to nag anymore. How nice!

My gal attended his motivational programs, organised by her school.

Didnt see Adam Khoo at all.

She enjoyed herself very much and they taught her alot of study techniques. I think it's good. Hope that she would benefit from it and do well. That's more important.

Many trainers came down to the school but never Adam Khoo.

Are our NIE trained teachers not better than those Adam Khoo's trainers that schools have to engage them to teach Maths before PSLE?

Feel that is like a slap in the face to MOE :oops:
