The Cold Hard Truth About Most Other English Education Providers

Dear concerned parents, we understand your pain if you’re still not seeing improvement in your child’s English Language grades despite sending them to countless tuition centres.

Here’s the scary reality…

Most parents who send their children for English tuition pay hundreds of dollars every single month, only to see little or no improvements in their children’s results.

While there are many tuition centres to choose from, the main concern for every parent is to find the right tuition centre which will help your child improve.

Did you know?

80% of Singaporeans believe that tuition is beneficial to their child’s education but only…

We know how painful it is to see all that hard-earned money just disappear like that especially when:

☹ You’re willing to fully support your child to master English

☹ You’re sick and tired of changing tutor after tutor or hearing your child complain to you that they dread going for tuition.

☹ You face countless nights worrying about your child failing their English exams and being retained for another year.

The well-kept secrets of the tuition industry

It’s not your fault if you did not know that…

Secret  #1 – Unstructured Curriculum & No Teaching Methodology

Most tuition centres or tutors do NOT have a structured curriculum or teaching methodology when teaching English to your child.

More often than not, it’s hastily put together “curriculum materials” photocopied from assessment books or other school exam papers. Such practices are often adopted as a matter of convenience. With the introduction of the new English Syllabus, many more tuition centres are thrown off-balance and are scrambling to put something “decent” together.

Additionally, these centres haven’t a clue as to how they should teach English –

it’s probably just worksheet supervision or a drill-and-practice approach to teaching.

It’s no wonder that your child complains that the lessons are dead boring!

How can your child even improve when the quality of the curriculum resources is sub-standard?

How can your child understand what is being ‘taught’ when there is no teaching methodology to support your child’s learning?

Secret  #2 – Unqualified Teachers

Most tuition centres which offer English tuition do NOT specialise in teaching English.

The tutors at most tuition centres are NOT English Language Specialists.

Chances are, many of their tutors are neither NIE-trained nor English-Certified and have not  gone through any form of training to teach your child English. Many of these tutors are also just part-timers looking to earn some extra pocket money.

This means that the quality of teaching is highly questionable. 

The last thing you would want is just a baby-sitter overseeing your child just doing ‘worksheets’. 

Shocking? Yes, it is.

You definitely won’t want to take any risk with these unqualified tutors, knowing fully well that English is an L1 compulsory subject which can affect your child’s admission options for Junior College or Polytechnic.

The EduEdge Difference:

#1 Fully Structured Curriculum And Teaching Methodology 

EduEdge’s Formula-style Approach: A Faster And Easier Way To Learn English.

At EduEdge, we’ve developed the “Total English Mastery System (TEMS)” – A collection of “formulas” that breaks the English Language down into easy-to-apply and easy-to-remember formulas, just like learning Math and Science!

With EduEdge’s “Total English Mastery System™” (TEMS), any student will be able to learn English faster and more effectively, and score higher in their exams. TEMS has helped more than 1800 students improve at least 1-2 grades in their exams to score B’s & A’s, even when they used to struggle in English badly.

If you realise, the English Syllabus comprises 6 core skills (inner ring): Vocabulary, Grammar, Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking. 

These core skills may be further divided into 32 sub-skills (the multi-coloured spokes).

By analysing top students’ thinking patterns and how they approach the different paper components of the English exam, we have eventually mapped out a specific formula for each of the 32 sub-skills. 

All students, including your child, can use and apply these formulas even if they are currently struggling with English right now.

Using this structure, learning English becomes much more systematic & structured, and scoring well in exams is much easier and more predictable. 

This is why many students and parents are raving that EduEdge is the Right English programme for them and how we’ve achieved.
