A Critical and Independent Thinker
As a critical thinker, your teen will be able to reflect on their learning process through higher-order thinking skills. These skills also help them to ask pertinent questions to form their own independent views, while respecting diverse perspectives.
Through critical thinking, your teen will also be able to express their insightful opinions effectively and present their views rationally.
A Resilient Individual
We equip your teen with the capability to overcome obstacles in their studies, as well as to analyse problems and devise solutions logically.
This builds your teen into a resilient and solution-oriented person, ready to embrace challenges in school and beyond fearlessly.
I have greatly enjoyed and benefited from my TWC lessons. The use of class discussion is very effective. My teacher ensures that every one of us in her class has a chance to speak up and state our points. She informs us of the topic we will be doing one week beforehand to allow us to do some background research before we go for the next lesson. She is also able to control the class very well and that makes the learning environment very conducive.
I have seen a huge improvement in my vocabulary and writing skills within a year! I don’t think I would’ve been able to achieve a consistent 'A' for my English this year if I hadn’t come to TWC.
