In my TWC lesson, I learn more new words, which helps me to describe nouns and make use of precise verbs. I improved in my comprehension open-ended questions from 6/10 to 10/10, and scored over 91 marks overall!

My child, Noel, joined TWC (Bedok) for Writing Enrichment towards the end of Primary 5, when we discovered that he was rather weak in composition writing. Despite reading up and doing past years' papers, he could not attain a breakthrough to score what he wished for (A / A*) in his English Language paper. We passed by TWC (Bedok) on a weekend and decided to sign up for its Writing Enrichment programme where the core consideration was the centre's proximity to home and timing of class which suited our schedule. Little did we expect our child, Noel, to be so interested in attending an enrichment class early every Saturday morning.

We would like to give credit to Noel's teacher from TWC, for her trustworthiness and dedication in imparting the skills of a good writer to Noel. We believe his TWC teacher’s patience and her ability to engage students in a professional yet caring and encouraging manner is what spurred our son's interest and determination to keep on striving to write a good composition.

Noel’s TWC teacher has certainly built up his confidence in the English Language paper. Her teaching has brought out the potential in Noel to handle the PSLE English paper with confidence and to score 'A*' for English in PSLE.

Thank you to Noel’s TWC teacher for believing in him!

I would like to thank TWC for the excellent educational coaching it has provided for my son! My son has shown incredible improvement thanks to his inspirational teachers, who supported him emotionally and academically throughout the milestone year.

The teachers and the entire TWC team are the main reason why my son could clinch an 'A*' in his PSLE English. I also have to applaud TWC for their wide range of interactive and fun lessons, and for their well-maintained facilities which provide a suitable learning environment.

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.

My TWC teacher always ensures that we understand what he is teaching.

 

He helps me understand the logic behind grammar, not to mention composition, comprehension and open-ended questions.

Since joining TWC at the beginning of 2018, Joelle has become more confident in English.

Attending classes at TWC has enhanced her acquisition of skills required to be competent in English. She enjoys attending classes at TWC even if she is busy with school activities on weekdays. Joelle and I would like to thank her teacher for guiding her.

My daughter entered TWC with rather poor results for her English prelims. After the coaching she received from TWC teachers, she jumped by two grades for her O-Level English. That she was able to make such good progress is extremely heartening. I'm very pleased with the dedication that her teachers at TWC have shown. Thank you!

Please convey my thanks to Katherine for setting up The Write Connection and ensuring the quality of the teachers, and especially those teachers who are able to inspire, guide and help the students.

 

Jonathan has benefited greatly from his lessons at the centre. I remember he was only getting an average 'A' grade in his English when he first started at The Write Connection and never expected he would end up with an 'A*'. Schedule permitting, I hope Jonathan can continue at The Write Connection next year in Secondary 1.

We’re gratified by Hannah’s good performance in the school’s recent mock exam writing practice, the SA1 Paper 1 composition and the Paper 2 comprehension.

 

For the two writing practices, she scored 37 and 38 marks out of 40 marks. She also attained the highest band in language use and second highest in content for SA1. Many thanks to her TWC teacher’s patient teaching, guidance and constructive feedback!

I would like to convey my personal thanks to The Write Connection for instilling a strong interest in writing in Megan.

 

Megan's writing has improved tremendously within a short period of time at TWC. I am very pleased and proud of her for achieving a perfect score in her recent writing test in school. Kudos to TWC and their teachers!

I am more confident in my writing, and better at phrasing and plotting now. I have learnt many techniques for writing and expanded my vocabulary. My composition marks have improved from an average of 28 to 35.

TWC S1 CRW programme has helped me in improving my vocabulary, essay writing skills, situational writing and many more. It has helped me gain useful general knowledge that can be applied in oral, argumentative writing, etc. I have improved in my comprehension, as I can analyse, understand and answer questions better by applying taught techniques. All the teachers are awesome, cool and fun with well-conducted and educational lessons. Discussions are enjoyable with interesting videos, and the curriculum is well-organised. One of the best tuition centres with the best teachers! :)

We would like to express our appreciation and gratitude to Izzul's teacher for teaching him since the beginning of 2016 when he was in Secondary 1. Izzul is now in Secondary 4 and he has improved tremendously over the years. My family and I would like to thank TWC from the bottom of our hearts.

My TWC teacher is very fun-loving and cracks many jokes! I love this fun learning experience.

I learnt how to better answer open-ended comprehension questions, comprehension cloze questions and picked up many vocabulary words!!! I also learnt many interesting and useful writing skills to help my compositions to further improve. I improved from a 94 to 97 to get a high ‘A*’.

When I was in Primary 6, I rarely scored high marks for my school examinations.

After I joined TWC’s Writing Enrichment programme, my grades for Composition began to improve. The writing skills that I learnt in class helped me significantly in my Continuous Writing. I can now plan essays confidently during my exams.

For someone like me who usually scores 'B's for my English exams, an 'A*' for my PSLE left me astonished. I owe it all to TWC and my teacher who helped me every step of the way!

My son, Cooper, started attending writing classes at The Write Connection in the middle of 2018. The writing programme was recommended by an educational psychologist that my son's school sent him to.

 

When Cooper first started the programme at The Write Connection, he was struggling to form basic sentences. Recently, Cooper has chosen to write a seventeen-page story for fun at home. We have been very happy to see such a significant amount of progress in Cooper's writing skills. Thank you to all of his teachers for their hard work.

I managed to adopt a better composition structure, and the teachers were very helpful in guiding me through my O-Level journey.

The comprehension topics were very stimulating, and everything in school seemed easy in comparison. Overall, this experience made my O-Level English exam seem breezy and manageable.

I signed my Secondary 1 girl up for classes at TWC when she scored a 'C5' in CA1. She did extremely well for SA2 and pulled the overall to 'A2' in just 8 months. Thank you, TWC!

What was amazing is that when she heard that her younger sister was struggling with her Paper 1, she recommended TWC to us. My younger girl went to check out the programmes and told me it sounded systematic and easy to understand. Thus, we signed her up on the spot. Thank you!

Joshua has scored 18 out of 20 for his SA2 composition, which is the highest score he has ever received for composition. He obtained 97% overall. This is an excellent score for English Language! We can see that he has improved in his writing and vocabulary.

 

He enjoys and looks forward to his TWC classes at TWC every week. We wish to thank his TWC teacher for making the lessons so enjoyable while also stretching and challenging the students to give their best. Thanks for being an inspiration to Joshua!

My son, Jerome has shown significant improvement in his SA1 results and he is visibly more motivated. To be honest, Jerome dreads going for extra lessons and anything extra. But, in these past 3 years that he has been with TWC, despite being tired, we have never heard him resisting or negotiating about going for TWC lessons. Such is the dedication of the teachers and structure of the curriculum by TWC, which has really proven to work in one way or another for this boy slowly but steadily. We hope that he will be able to maintain such results and continue to improve.
 

We were truly impressed by Jerome’s initiative to write a super lengthy write-up about Climate Change after he got home from the 1st SCOOP (TWC Holiday Programme) session. This is something we have never witnessed before from a child who was super resistant to writing.
Heartfelt gratitude to Jerome’s teacher and the TWC team for the patience and strategies which you have effortlessly deployed to help my son.


Thank you once again to his teacher!

En Tong only joined the programme around Jul/Aug (few months from her O-Levels) but she made tremendous improvement under the tutorship of her TWC teacher. She taught En Tong the skills and techniques necessary to handle the English paper. She was patient, reassuring and most of all very encouraging.

 

Her constant positive feedback and reinforcement of concepts definitely boosted En Tong’s confidence. She is very inspiring, systematic and organised. En Tong may have the right ingredients to make a perfect dish, but she needs a master chef to perfect the recipe. We found the answer in her TWC teacher. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Audrey's TWC teacher is very engaging. She has great ideas and strategies that provide an understanding of the subject based on her students' behaviour.

My little girl has been struggling with comprehension since she was in P1. She has always been in Band 2 for English and she has been finding comprehension and composition the hardest to do well in exams. We have tried several enrichment classes and tuition teachers to help improve her English Paper 1 and Paper 2 scores, but to no avail.

Ever since she joined TWC, she has strengthened her vocabulary, comprehension and composition skills greatly. She finally managed to score 98% in her English Paper 1 (full marks for comprehension) and 90% in her English Paper 2 after two full semesters with TWC.

Thank you to Audrey's TWC teacher for her dedication and passion!

Sarah was so excited for her next class. She kept saying that her TWC teacher is really patient, kind, nice and passionate. She enjoys lessons so much and is all smiles after her lesson ends. She kept saying many nice things about her TWC teacher.

Honestly, throughout her journey through the many enrichment classes I've sent her to, this is the first time she has mentioned non-stop about how much she enjoys her English lessons. Seriously, it makes a whole lot of difference when a teacher shows their passion, love and compassion towards their students. Even the administration lady was very kind, patient and nice. ⁣

Overall, TWC is the best of all the enrichment centres we have gone to before. I'm so glad to have enrolled Sarah here. Once again thank you for making classes so interesting, fun and engaging.

I joined TWC with the intention of enhancing my kids' writing skills, and was really pleased when the TWC Toa Payoh branch opened at SAFRA.

My child Meredith is fortunate to be taught by her TWC teacher. My daughter shares with me that she is a very good teacher. Here are some traits Meredith mentioned to support her opinion: engaging, very clear with explanations and inspiring to her, thorough with the content and also marking of essays, and gives constructive feedback in essay comments in a way that young kids can digest and help them improve. Meredith tells me that her TWC teacher makes lessons fun!

I have seen visible improvements in Meredith’s writing. Previously she used continuous run-on sentences, and now she has a couple of mini-masterpieces which she shares with me. I love the way her TWC teacher responds to my child in the weekly journals. She will write one or two more questions to get my child to think further than just writing a piece of work. She has also managed to inspire Meredith to write mini-stories at home on the computer too!
 

I feel that my child's TWC teacher takes pride in her profession. We can tell from the students’ improvements. Furthermore, I was also surprised to receive email updates from her on Meredith’s progress.

Thank you to my TWC teachers for teaching and guiding me throughout my P6 journey. TWC always plans an amazing lesson packed with videos and exhilarating activities to make it fun and enjoyable for all.

My scores went through the roof due to the helpful notes TWC provides and the wonderful guidance of my teachers. In P5, my grades were at a borderline ‘A’, but immediately after starting tuition in P6 with TWC, I saw improvements to a high ‘A’ and to an ‘A*’ in PSLE!!!

Abella has improved in her school assessment tests since attending classes at TWC in 2018. I would like to express my appreciation and gratitude to her teacher as well as to the team at TWC for their dedication.

I am glad to see that Abella looks forward to coming to TWC, as she finds the lessons useful and enjoys the themes discussed in class. My family and I would like to thank TWC for nurturing and guiding Abella.

I learnt how to use critical thinking skills in my work. Especially when it comes to choosing the evidence to use to answer the questions and writing explanations.

Other than that, I also learnt how to write summaries, short stories, and other forms of writing. It’s been pretty helpful in general. I have also made improvements in my vocabulary, grammar and sentence structures.

Tianchen Zhang, Secondary 2,

The lessons are very interesting and I learnt many techniques for writing such as literary devices.

I have improved in my composition skills and even got Gold for the Commonwealth Essay Competition. I also achieved 9th place in an English essay competition.

Wenxuan has been with TWC since K2... He has improved so much over the years, and most importantly, his love for writing goes beyond TWC's writing assignments. He is enthusiastic about writing travel diary entries and poems on his own. This passion is something invaluable he gained from TWC.

Since attending TWC classes, my daughters’ writing has improved by leaps and bounds. Their vocabulary has expanded, and their compositions are interesting and engaging. They are both enjoying their classes. I would like to say a big “Thank You” to TWC and their teachers!

A big thank you to my daughter’s TWC teacher! My daughter scored full marks for her composition in her SA2 this year. It is simply unbelievable! A remarkable achievement!

This year, Kai Xuan scored an overall 97 for her English and attained Top in English in her level.  I was almost in tears when I saw her English results. Every week, Kai Xuan looks forward to going to TWC and thoroughly enjoys every single lesson. She is motivated to do her best because of her teacher’s constant encouragement and support.

During lessons, my TWC teacher ensures that we all understand what is being taught in class. He never fails to make us laugh through his jokes whilst also teaching us new techniques on how to tackle different types of questions each week. I love that class is fun and engaging with many informative worksheets.

I also like the good study environment at TWC. I have improved after joining TWC’s English Tuition programme. From a ‘B’, my grades have gone up to an ‘A’.

Thank you to my TWC teacher for his guidance throughout the term!
