My Approach to Private Tuition

The Singapore government and various Members of Parliament have voiced concerns about private tuition. Many have highlighted the stresses and pressures students are facing at school and have wondered if we are pushing our students too hard.

I believe that having private tuition is a personal choice that the student and parent must decide on their own. My students have benefited from private (one to one) home tuition. They have gained confidence tackling the difficult concepts presented to them, and have benefited from the personalized attention that one to one tuition provides.

At school or at tuition centres, it is difficult to give each and every student such individualized, personal attention. That is where home tutors like myself come in. I strongly believe that well-qualified tutors like myself have a role to play in helping students strengthen their academic foundations and achieve better grades.

My aim is to make the learning experience a pleasant and enriching experience for all my students.

Enhanced post-diploma certificate courses on offer from October

20 May 2015

Senior Minister of State for Education Indranee Rajah has announced the launch of enhanced post-diploma certificate (PDC) courses at local polytechnics, ranging from shipyard operations to data analytics.

They can be taken on a standalone basis, and are intensive, full-time courses that last for one to two months.

Students who successfully complete an enhanced post-diploma certificate course will receive the same certificate as students who now complete an equivalent course as part of part-time advanced diploma or specialist diploma courses.

Enhanced post-diploma courses to keep polytechnic graduates industry-relevant

18 May 2015

From October this year, polytechnic graduates can look forward to enrolling in 10 different enhanced post-diploma certificate courses to keep themselves industry-relevant, ranging from shipyard operations to data analytics.

These courses are being introduced as part of SkillsFuture, a national movement to encourage students and workers to develop specialised and industry-relevant skills. The enhanced courses will be offered on a standalone basis, in which graduates can cherrypick courses relevant to them, rather than completing an entire diploma course.

Fees will be waived for Singapore citizens taking their first enhanced course, if they have not taken up any post-diploma certificate course previously. Fees for subsequent courses will be subsidised at 85 per cent.

UOL Statistics 1 students are being forced to retake their exams – due to examiners’ oversight

Summarized from TODAY Online
15 May 2015

SINGAPORE — One missing table of statistics was all it took for more than 2,000 students to have to retake an examination held last week.

TODAY understands that most of the students affected by the administrative blunder in the Statistics 1 exam on May 7, offered by the University of London (UOL), are from SIM University.

The announcement was all the more a surprise to many of them because invigilators had said the missing table was not an issue.

The shocker from the UOL came via email early yesterday: The students must retake the exam during their semester break, as the first will not be counted and will not appear in their records.
