Happy when My Students Do well at the O levels

More than 80 percent of my students scored A2 and above with a few scoring B3, usually from a C5 or C6 from the mid-year or their prelims.

Some of the happy feedback I received just yesterday:

Mother of Sec 4 student (2019) from  CCHM
“Hi Teacher, a big thanks for your help and tremendous effort and worry for the boy.”

(The boy Jia Qing scored an A1 for Combined Humanities and A1 for Pure History)

Meera for St Margaret’s Secondary (sec 4 in 2019)
“Hi I got A1 for my English and Combined Humanities. Thank you. :)”

Jaryl from ACS Barker (sec 4 in 2019)
“I scored A2 for my Combined Humanities”

Mother of Kay Sim from Zheng Hua Sec (sec 4 in 2019)
“Dear Mdm Yu, thank you very much for your help with Kay Sim’s Combined Humanities. He has attained B3 for Combined Humanities.” (He managed only a C5 for his Prelims)

One Crucial Difference

Contexts

Having an A-level Literature tutor who knows the differences makes the key difference between an effective and a non-effective A-level Literature tuition session.

Answering Techniques

The “Peel” method which is so ingrained in our students does not apply to questions for Literature in English. Students has to give that up, letting go the usual repetitive linking sentence at the end of the elaboration for each point.  Whenstudents write correctly, they will get the marks they want. In this regard, the A level Literature tutor will spare no efforts to role-model and provide scaffolding to enable students to answer the question in such a way to scor
