With our English Tutorial Programme for Years 11-13, students are challenged to go even further in their mastery of the English language. Aside from honing the leaners’ skills in English communication, the programme also aims to develop students’ critical thought in how they use the language. This includes being able to thoroughly read and analyse a variety of texts that encompass multiple genres. Through their examination of the written word, and by building on their reading comprehension skills, students are able to gain a deeper knowledge and appreciation of the specific nuances of the language and how it is being used for different audiences and for diverse purposes. Our English programme also provides ample opportunity for the students to practise their writing. The programme helps students to be able to write clearly, creatively and with a precise use of the language that suits their particular writing styles and who they’re writing for. They can learn how to effectively command the language for use in describing, persuading, and narrating. Emphasis is also given on writing for research and academic purposes. Our English Tutorial Programme for Years 11-13 encompasses the following:
- Analysis of various works of literature and other texts
- Activities for improving literary criticism and reading comprehension
- Writing activities
We aim to provide a tutorial programme that closely reflects the students’ own English classes, so as to make it relevant to their academic performance in school. We aim to provide an environment that effectively challenges them to do better. Our tutors bring out the students’ potential in the language through examination of assigned texts (as well as in-house texts), literary criticism, discussions among the group, and writing activities (reaction papers, reflection papers, research writing, etc.). The tutors also provide quick feedback so students are aware of where their strengths and weaknesses lie.
