Prior to joining Mr Wong’s tuition class at the beginning of June, I had barely scraped a meagre 2.5 GPA. I had difficulty with inference, paraphrasing and had no idea whatsoever of linguistic skills. It was not just comprehension skills which I had trouble with, but I was also at a loss about the structure of expository writing. Mr Wong, who shows a burning passion for teaching, constantly gives feedback and guidance for me to improve, even going the extra mile to make his own set of notes and practices. Furthermore, he strongly emphasises on using articles from a variety of credible sources which provide his students with ample content, and produces his own model essays. Despite Mr Wong’s lessons being a group tuition, he still ensures that he attends to the needs of each student, and always offers a helping hand to assist any individual in grasping each topic. During the short time of just 2 months with Mr Wong, I was able to pull up my GPA to a 4.0. I am thankful for Mr Wong’s guidance and tutelage in helping me to achieve this substantial achievement.

Ever since my daughter, Celeste joined Mr Wong's English class, she constantly improves on her marks. Celeste shares that Mr Wong's teaching is very engaging and interactive. What more can I ask when Celeste scored highest in her class for essay writing in recent midyear examination. Thumbs up!

I joined The Rationale Thinking Learning Centre in 2015, at a time when my English was middling - a B4 at best. Through the teacher's revolutionary and unconventional teaching methods, I was able to obtain a distinction at the 'O' level examinations in 2016. I continued to study under the teacher for my pre-university years, finishing near the top of my cohort in both years for General Paper. With good results, I got into the LL.B. programme of the National University of Singapore, and I have the teacher to thank for his hard work and belief in me. Thank you TRT and Mr Edwin Wong !

Mr Wong's teaching method is very different from my teacher’s. He gave us tests on our vocabulary to improve the quality of our essays. Additionally, Mr Wong will engage the class in case studies of global events happening then such as ISIS etc. He also analyze different essay topics, with case studies, to suit the needs of his students. Mr Wong also incorporated the different topics together to better prepare his students for higher level questions such as bringing together science and terrorism, science and environment etc. His teaching method is extremely professional and he covers more than sufficient information for every topic. Mr Wong is a dedicated tutor who focuses on ensuring his students are ready for their exams. He is also very caring towards the wellbeing of his students and up till today, he still tirelessly give advice to us Wong Zheng Heng NYJC

Mr Wong is a dedicated English teacher who motivated my elder son with dyslexia to love English language. Under Mr Wong's innovative teaching, my elder son has improved his English from a failing or passable grade to a B3 grade in his O level. I am very grateful of Mr Wong for building up my elder son's self esteem during the 3 years with Mr Wong. I am very sure my 2nd son who is currently studying in Rationale Thinking Learning Centre will score well for his O level English this year.

Frequently Asked Questions

What tuition programmes are offered at The Rationale Thinking?

The Rationale Thinking Learning Centre currently offers you two unique tuition programmes to choose from –  ‘A’ Level General Paper tuition and the IP English tuition. Find out more about our unique approach to our tuition curriculum here.

Why is there a need for General Paper Tuition and IP English Tuition?

The preponderance of students in Singapore struggle with mastering the Language subjects. However, the English language is arguably the most important subject in Singapore as it is our lingua franca. Furthermore, the daily use of Singapore Colloquial English (commonly known as Singlish) is exacerbating this problem further. As a language specialist, we aim to tackle this prevalent issue. A strong foundation in the English language is vital to acing other subjects such as General Paper, Humanities, Mathematics, Science, etc. and ultimately getting coveted placements in Ivy League Universities.
Here at The Rationale Thinking Learning Centre, we specialise in coaching our students in the English Language and General Paper. Our specially curated curriculum aims to break down the complexity and technicalities of mastering the English language and General Paper to give our students the confidence to attain their Distinctions.

Why should I join The Rationale Thinking?

The Rationale Thinking Learning Centre prides itself in not just enabling our students to score Distinctions for the ‘A’ Level General Paper and the IP English examinations, but we also firmly believe in moulding the next generation to become Global Thinkers. With our carefully curated in-house notes assembled by our dedicated research team, we train and impart our students with the skills and knowledge that are not taught in school. Not forgetting to build up a good character to prepare them for their future careers in the world’s leading industries.

For a start, we offer all prospective students of The Rationale Thinking one trial lesson*. More details about our trial lesson can be found here.

Are your tuition classes conducted in a group setting or individual tuition?

Our General Paper and IP English tuition classes are conducted in a well-controlled group. Unlike Science and Mathematics, the IP English language and General Paper requires more than just rote learning of formulas. It is through the cross-fertilisation of ideas while studying for the language subjects that our students are exposed to various ideas, opinions and perspectives – the perfect environment that stimulates critical thinking. This will ultimately aid them in crafting a coherent essay during their examinations. While we aim to provide a broader view of the language subjects, we also refine the curriculum to suit our students’ needs, rectifying their weaker aspects and cementing their foundation before building upon it.

Who is the tutor?

Mr Edwin Wong personally coaches his students for both General Paper and IP English tuition programmes. He is a well sought-after English language specialist, revolutionary thinker and transformational teacher. He has helped numerous students achieve Distinctions in their IP English examinations and their ‘A’ Level General Paper and many of them have gone on to secure placements in competitive academic courses in local universities or obtained Public Service Commission (Overseas Scholarship) with Ivy-League Universities.

I am interested in the tuition programmes. Are trial lessons offered?

Yes! We offer all prospective students of The Rationale Thinking Learning Centre one trial lesson* of either General Paper or IP English tuition programme. The trial lesson is chargeable upon official registration for regular classes. Otherwise, your trial lesson will be complimentary. More information and details can be found here.
