Integrated Programme English Tuition
Students in the Integrated Programme are not required to sit for the ‘O’ Level examination. Hence, our Integrated Programme English tuition programme is designed to help them cement a deep foundation in the English language through the Mastery of Linguistic Skills (the scientific study of language). Additionally, preparing them to tackle the final ‘A’ Level General Paper in IP Year 5 and 6.
What our IP English tuition aims to achieve
Global Thinkers, Future Leaders
We aim to instil in our Integrated Programme (IP) English Tuition students the love and passion for discussing politics and socio-economic issues, which are crucial topics in the General Paper when they advance to IP Year 5 and 6. Thus, our students are provided with a competitive edge and a strong foundation that will be their anchor throughout their academic journey. As a result, our students are not only ready to ace their IP English examinations but are also prepared for their future careers in the world’s leading industries.
Mastery of Linguistic Skills
Linguistic Skills – The Scientific Study of Language.
After years of research with our in-house research team and refinement to our IP English tuition curriculum, we firmly believe that the linchpin of an A grade for IP English is the mastery of Linguistic Skills. Thus, our students are able to better understand and appreciate the English language and when mastered well, they are able to confidently answer and ace their IP English examination in the Comprehension component.
Critical Thinking and Content Knowledge
Through the integrated study of the Language Arts and Critical Analysis of the latest current affairs from an array of highly regarded international newspapers and journals, our students develop their critical thinking skills. Thus, our IP students are provided with valuable content knowledge and the confidence that they need when crafting cogent essays.

FAQ about our General Paper and IP English tuition programmes
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.
