It’s not your fault if you did not know that…
Most tuition centres or tutors do NOT have a structured curriculum or teaching methodology when teaching English to your child
More often than not, it’s hastily put together “curriculum materials” photocopied from assessment books. Such practices are often adopted as a matter of convenience. With the introduction of the new English Syllabus, many more tuition centres are thrown off-balance and are scrambling to put something “decent” together.
Additionally, these centres haven’t a clue as to how they should teach English –
it’s probably just worksheet supervision or a drill-and-practice approach to teaching.
It’s no wonder that your child complains that the lessons are dead boring!
How can your child even improve when the quality of the curriculum resources is sub-standard?
How can your child understand what is being ‘taught’ when there is no teaching methodology to support your child’s learning?
Obviously, your child is not benefitting in any way…
Most tuition centres which offer English tuition are NOT
qualified English ‘specialists’
This is worth repeating…
The tutors at most tuition centres are NOT English Language Specialists.
Chances are, many of their tutors are neither NIE-trained nor English-Certified and have not undergone any form of training to teach your child English. Many of these tutors are also just part-timers looking to earn some extra pocket money.
This means that the quality of teaching is highly questionable.
Honestly, the last thing you would want is a baby-sitter overseeing your child just doing ‘work-sheeting’. This is an unsettling thought for any parent.
You definitely won’t want to take any risk with these unqualified tutors, knowing fully well that English is an L1 compulsory subject which can affect your child’s admission options for Junior College or Polytechnic.
You know deep down in your heart that your child is fully capable of much better grades in English – but only with the support of a proven learning system.
