Every child has a natural talent and ability to write. Every child just needs to be guided to develop that talent and ability.
To become an 'A*' student, your child needs to develop his or her writing talents and abilities to the fullest, so as to score continuously in the exams. This we do through REAL LEARNING.
REAL LEARNING is developing your child's writing talents and abilities so that he or she is confident in tackling any composition writing title or comprehension passage alone. To do this in 4 ways, your child is trained to :
- Become an independent learner To do this your child needs to be an independent learner. An independent learner is one who is able to sit confidently for exams because he or she is able to read, understand and write on any composition title and comprehension passage. Your child is trained to do this with our email courses, because he or she has to read, understand and then do the lessons, exactly like he or she has to in the exams. Over time, this training will result in your child being confident when sitting for exams.
- Think critically, imaginatively and creatively We have specially designed the courses so that students are taught to think imaginatively and creatively in composition writing; and critically in comprehension. This makes the difference between 'A*' & 'A' students and other lower-scoring students.
- Look for answers on his or her own Your child is trained to do this in composition writing and comprehension, when he or she gets an incorrect answer, Raja, the teacher, gives hints on where and how to find the answer; and redoes the error. Over time, your child develops the confidence to look for answers on his or her own, which develops into confidence in taking the exams. This is real learning.
- Edit his or her own work When your child makes an error in English usage, be it in grammar, vocabulary and spelling, Raja, the teacher, gives hints on how and where to correct the error. Over time, your child learns not to make the same errors again. Checking his or her own work for errors then becomes a good habit your child develops. This useful habit will also serve your child well in other subjects. (Teachers in schools do not have the time to do this as they have to finish the syllabus, so they give children the answers. However most children from our experience, do not even look at the corrected answers, so they don't learn.)
- Learn to love writing When someone loves to do something, they automatically do well in it and will want to do everything they can to do well in it. It is the same for writing. Raja is able to inspire your child to love writing because he loves writing.
