More importantly, we believe in moulding the next generation of leaders and we strive to build a good character in each of them.
Hear it first-hand what the parents have to say about our General Paper and Integrated Programme (IP) English tuition programmes.
我是华中初院2020级学生彦文的妈妈，彦文是在 JC 1 四月正式开始上teacher Edwin的GP课。彦文之前没有参加任何的英文或GP补习，GP写作卷面部分比较薄弱，在学校的 JC1年底考试中GP只是C。当时我咨询了一位很有经验的莱佛士家长，她推荐了teacher Edwin。我下了一番功夫做彦文的思想工作，她好不容易才答应试一下。结果 JC 2 三月底的那节试课就深深吸引了她！非常愿意继续下去！
在9月学校的预考中，她开心获取了A！我还记得预考时考完GP回来，她高兴地告诉我在做答GP的essay写作卷时，她从以往没太多观点可以写，已经改变为下笔有很多观点和想法可以写了。我问她是不是teacher Edwin的课帮助到她，她很肯定地回答“是！” 并告诉我，teacher Edwin的课让她发觉和体验到 GP其实是很有趣的科目。她还评价“teacher Edwin对学生很好，把学生们当自己孩子一样对待。”
Prior to joining teacher Edwin's General Paper tuition class, my daughter, Yanwen, did not attend any IP English or General Paper (GP) tuition classes. Thus, she has always been weaker in her GP, especially the essay writing component. She managed to only squeeze out a C grade for her GP Promo at the end of J1. That was when I sought advice from a very experienced parent whose son is in Raffles Institution and she recommended teacher Edwin to me. It took me much effort to convince Yanwen to go for the GP trial class. To my surprise, that trial class changed Yanwen's mind and she decided to carry on with the regular GP tuition classes.
During her General Paper prelim exam, she managed to get an A! I can still remember the day she brought her GP paper back, she told me how she managed to write and structure her GP essay. She used to not be able to do so, but is now able to write with many ideas and perspectives. I asked her if this was due to teacher Edwin's General Paper tuition lesson that helped her during this exam, and she gave me a definite "Yes!" without hesitation. She also told me how teacher Edwin's GP tuition helped her to realise that GP is actually a very interesting subject. She even praised teacher Edwin for treating his students like his own children, caring for each of them.
As a parent, I am rejoicing at my daughter's improvement in her General Paper. I am very happy that Yanwen met such a great teacher! At the end, Yanwen managed to get an A at the final 'A' Level exam as she brought in her interest and confidence in the General Paper into the exam hall!

Although my son is in the GEP class in Hwa Chong Institution (HCI), he has always been weak in the language subjects and his grades hovered around B3-B4. However, after joining Mr Wong's IP English tuition class in January, he managed to score an A2 in his March IP English examination, just short of 1 mark to clinching an A1. I remember seeing him bring his IP English exam paper back home excitedly as this was his first time achieving such a high grade. Mr Wong's teaching methodology is very effective and I am very grateful for his coaching that helped my son improve tremendously in such a short time.

An English tutor who can inspire, empower and instill the love of learning is like a rare gem. I am glad that my daughter has had the good fortune to find an English tutor who can help her. Mr Edwin Wong is very passionate about what he does. I do hope that he will continue to help more students to excel not just in their academics, but as well as in the love for the language.

Mr Edwin Wong speaks well and teaches well. He is the archetypal star English tutor with an amiable disposition. My two children have been attending his English tuition class for the past year. My elder son, Ryan, thoroughly relished the lessons taught. The English tuition curriculum conducted by Mr Wong adopts a holistic approach. It has helped my sons to improve their communication skills, creative writing, vocabulary and grammar. It has broadened their horizon!
My younger son, Shaun, dislikes tuition because he feels that it is a waste of time and money. However, he doesn’t mind attending Mr Wong’s English tuition because he consistently delivers a high-quality learning experience. The lessons are enriched with both local and international current affairs and are simplified that the students are able to relate them easily. Since attending Mr Wong’s English tuition, Shaun has shown confidence in his command of English and his English has jumped by two grades within a short time.
Often, my two boys are excited to bring home what they have learnt from their lessons and share it during mealtimes! As a parent, I feel assured that my children are in good hands. I will continue to send my two boys to Mr Wong’s English tuition and recommend you to send yours too.

Initially, when Yuxin told me he wanted to attend Mr Wong’s English tuition class, I was very hesitant as he had not been interested in the English language since a young age. However, we know that English is very important so we have been telling him to read but he just simply refuses to do so and I can see from his grades that he wasn’t doing well. As parents, we understand that English is the most important subject as it helps with other subjects such as Geography and History, where you have to write fluently to get the grades you want.
Since he had this interest to join Mr Wong’s English tuition programme, I decided to give it a try. After joining his class, I’m quite surprised that within a few months, Yuxin’s vocabulary has improved.
For the past one year that he has been with Mr Wong, his English grades improved tremendously. Most importantly I can see a change in his character. Which is something that is quite surprising to me.
I would think that English tuition is just to improve your command of English, so what has it got to do with your character? I believe the stories and current affairs he shares have inspired the students, especially my son. I feel very grateful because Yuxin had never been so interested in his studies but now he even goes out of his way to buy books to read. I am very grateful for what Mr Wong has done for Yuxin and I’m very glad that I’ve enrolled him for Mr Wong's English tuition.
