Yay, my JC1 H1 Math student obtained a B

Received good news this evening. My H1 Math student, who previously had lost all confidence in ever doing well in Math again, has just gotten a B in her mid-year exam, after about 12 tuition lessons (over 3 months, once weekly). She dropped her A.Math at the start of Sec 4 thus quite a number of concepts in H1 Math were not familiar to her, especially Differentiation and its applications.

But the result of not doing the O-Level exam for A.Math also meant that she did not revise her Sec 3 A.Math in year 4, hence when she first encountered H1 Math in year 5 she struggled to understand the concepts presented. This brings us to my next point – Students who have not done A.Math before may find H1 Math difficult and should get help early before they lose confidence in their ability to do Math.

My H1 Math class is every Monday 7.30 pm to 9.00 pm. I can be contacted at 97860411.

Best Regards,

Ilyasa

Secondary Years (S1-S4) Programme for Private candidates

For S1 to S3 students who wish to prepare for the O-Level or A-Level exams as private candidates, we welcome you to join the Singapore Learner Academy (SLA), which is an academic division in Singapore Learner which aims to prepare private candidates for national certificate examinations.

How is SLA different from other “private schools” and other “schools” in general?

SLA is not a full-time “school” as it only has at most 4.5 hrs of lessons a day for 4 days in a week, Monday-Thursday.

SLA does not have Co-Curricular Activities (CCA) such as sports and camps. However, over time, special interest and hobby groups may be formed and enrichment activities may be conducted in the afternoons.

SLA takes in students from Sec 1 level (13-yr-olds) to  JC2 level (18-yr-old and above).

Instead of classroom settings, SLA uses the Assisted Self-Directed Learning (ASDL) model, where students explore and study academic subjects by themselves with the help of teachers and good educational tools, materials and resources.

Every Secondary-level student in SLA will be in the Express stream, regardless of their PSLE results.

Essentially, SLA is a Daytime Immersive Tutorial Programme to prepare students for the O-Level exams.

What are the subjects offered at SLA?

O-LEVEL PROGRAMME (2 to 4 years):

Main academic subjects which will be offered from Sec 1 to Sec 4:  English, Math, A.Math, Chemistry, Physics, Science (Physics, Chemistry), History. Every academic year, students are expected to choose between 5 to 6 of these subjects, and the subject combination in Sec 3 must be the same as that in Sec 4 so as to have sufficient lesson hours to prepare for the national exams. Each subject has 3 contact hrs a week.

Please note that students who intend to proceed to a Polytechnic must offer English (at least a C6 for most courses), Math (at least a C6), and 3 other subjects, for a total of 5 subjects. Thus students who do less than 5 subjects in SLA need to study their 5th subject on their own if they intend to apply to a polytechnic.

Students who intend to proceed to a Junior College must offer English (at least a C6), Math (at least a D7), and 4 other subjects, for a total of 6 subjects, and must have passed Mother Tongue (at least a D7). Thus students who do less than 6 subjects in SLA need to study their remaining subjects on their own if they intend to apply to a JC.

Our teaching and assessment methodologies will, where appropriate, incorporate principles from the following curricular approaches: Problem-based Learning, Authentic Learning, Assessment for Learning, Experiential Learning, Service Learning, Productive Failure, Metacognition and Systems Thinking.

SLA will also conduct Science Practical training and assessment for its students.

Part of curriculum time will be set aside for project work, learning journeys and physical activities.

Fee Matters:

The fee per month for each subject is $180 (including June, November and December for non-graduating students). Fees are due in the first week of each month.

One-time Registration Fee for each student is $20.

Materials fee (photocopying, notes, graph paper etc) per NON-SCIENCE subject is $90 for the whole year.

Materials fee (photocopying, notes, graph paper, science lab consumables etc) per SCIENCE subject is $350 for the whole year.

A Deposit equivalent to one-month’s fee is payable upon registration. (This Deposit will be used as fee for December for non-graduating students or as fee for October for graduating students).

Total Fee payable at point of Registration: [$20] + [$90 x (number of Non-Science subjects)] + [$350 x (number of Science subjects)]+ [$180 x (number of subjects) x 2 (due to deposit)].

Total fee in a normal month = $180 x (number of subjects)

Parents will be also be informed of any books which need to be purchased. Students are also expected to have their own writing materials and calculator.

 

Administrative and Operational Matters:

Education days: Mon to Thurs, except public holidays and government school holidays.

Education hours: 10.30 am to 12.00 pm, 15-min break, 12.15 am to 1.45 pm, 15-min break, 2.00 pm to 3.30 pm. Students will do two to three different subjects each day.

Education calendar: In terms of weeks, terms, months and semester of study as well as no-lesson days, SLA generally follows the same academic calendar as those of government secondary schools and junior colleges in Singapore, so that families and staff with children in public secondary schools can better align their social activities. However, graduating students may be asked to attend extra lessons in the June holidays.

Registration:

Registration is now open for the 2018 intake. To register, please visit Singapore Learner to fill up a registration form and to make the necessary payments.

Our administrative opening hours: Weekdays: 3pm to 8pm | Saturdays 11 am to 4 pm.
