The Adventure Begins Here

English can be a challenging subject for many students in Singapore. The process of mastering the English language can be so difficult that students dread it. The learning experience can be worsened if the English tutors you picked do not know how to kindle your child’s interest in the language. This is why finding the best English tuition centre in Singapore matters.

At Augustine’s English Tuition Classes, we strive to make every single lesson a learning adventure. At our English tuition centre for primary and secondary school students we believe that learning English should always be a meaningful and enjoyable process, and never by rote.

My son started his English tuition with Augustine's English classes at the start of Secondary 1 in January as I was worried that he was unable to handle his school English exam papers because he didn't perform well for his PSLE English paper. However, to my surprise, he managed to achieve an A1 for his Sec 1 final year exams. I believe the credit largely goes to Teacher Augustine for his guidance and his patience. Thank you, Teacher Augustine.

We can't thank Teacher Augustine enough. When our son joined in the middle of P5, he struggled with English, getting around AL5-AL6 for his tests. But fast forward one year later, with Teacher Augustine’s amazing teaching, our son surprised us all by achieving AL2 in his PSLE. It's been a remarkable journey, and we're so grateful for the support and positive impact on his learning. Highly recommend Augustine's English Classes to other parents looking for a good English tuition centre!

Augustine's English Classes has been a transformative experience for our family. With three children going through the challenges of both primary and secondary education, we've witnessed remarkable progress, all thanks to the exceptional teaching methods employed by Teacher Augustine. The key highlight of Teacher Augustine's approach is the simplicity and clarity with which intricate techniques for writing and comprehension are taught in class. Teacher Augustine has a unique ability to break down complex concepts into digestible bits, making it easier for students to grasp and apply in their school English papers. The two older ones, tackling secondary education, have done quite well for the subject under Teacher Augustine's guidance, demonstrating enhanced comprehension skills and analytical thinking. Our youngest child, currently in primary school, has not only improved his grades but also developed a newfound confidence in expressing ideas through writing. In summary, Augustine's English classes has been an invaluable investment in our children's education. If you're seeking a program that goes beyond conventional teaching, providing a solid foundation and a genuine passion for English, look no further. Teacher Augustine's dedication and effective teaching methodologies make this an outstanding choice for any student aspiring to excel in school English exams.

Today received psle result of my younger daughter. Manage to score good result in English language thanks to Augustine Tuition. My elder daughter (also attended Augustine Tuition) got the same score two years ago in psle English. I think Augustine provided very good English learning techniques, materials and tips for his student. In my perspective, this tuition is probably the key factor in both my daughters' outstanding results in psle English language. Strongly recommended.

Augustine is an excellent English teacher who is passionate about his subject. He is always willing to go the extra mile to help his students succeed. My children have learned so much from him, and I am confident that they will continue to do well in English because of his instructions. One of the ways that Mr. Augustine has helped my children improve their writing skills is by providing them with regular feedback and guidance. He always takes the time to read their work carefully and offer specific suggestions for how they can improve their grammar, punctuation, and vocabulary. He also provides them with helpful tips on how to organize their thoughts and ideas more effectively. As a result my children have become much more confident writers. They are now able to write clear, concise, and well-organized essays that make a strong argument. He also keep them engaged through prizes and games on class participation/performance activities.

Our Teaching Philosophy

Our English tuition centre’s teaching philosophy is guided by one simple belief: 

If students believe that they can succeed at something, they are more likely to persist until they achieve their goals. Conversely, if students don’t believe that they can succeed, even if they are actually capable of achieving success, their lack of motivation will cause them to fall short of their goals. Therefore, our primary job is to equip our students with the confidence that success is possible, which will then to help them succeed in their school.

It took us a while to learn how to convey this belief effectively to our students. However, once we were able to do so, we found immense success in convincing our students that they are all capable of succeeding in school and beyond. Soon, emboldened by this newfound belief in themselves, all our students started to enjoy our English tuitions. This makes teaching so much simpler and more importantly, learning has become infinitely more enjoyable for our students.

Over the years, through ongoing research, reflections, and observing our students’ behaviour and school achievements, we have a refined understanding of discipline, grades, examinations, motivation, classroom management, and positive discipline. With the help of cognitive science and simple psychology, we know how to effectively get students to practice self-discipline. All these helped us to develop a toolkit of successful strategies and practices to implement in class.

Augustine Heng - Principal English Tutor

Over a decade ago, when Augustine’s English Classes just started taking in students, one parent asked us this question, “What do you want your students to know when they leave your English tuition class?”

Despite this being more than a decade ago, our answer to this question still remains the same: While we want our students to achieve better results, we also want to play a part in their formative years and help them excel beyond the confinement of the classroom. We want to evoke an unquenchable thirst for knowledge in them, and for them to pursue successes defined on their own terms.

While Augustine’s English Classes is set up as an English tuition centre, we aspire to be more than a tuition centre. We view it as our mission to ensure that the students excel in their examinations and in beyond.

What Happy Parents Say About Our English Tuition

How Our Students Are Taught

“Learning is not a spectator sport. Students do not learn much just by sitting in class listening to teachers, memorizing prepackaged assignments, and spitting out answers. They must talk about what they are learning, write about it, relate it to past experiences, apply it to their daily lives. They must make what they learn part of themselves.”

-Arthur W. Chickering and Zelda F. Gamson

At our English tuition centre, we focus on an education technique called active learning. As suggested by the name, this involves the students to be actively engaged in the learning process. Rather than being passive listeners, which is how most lectures and classroom lessons are conducted, students will instead actively participate in our classes. In short, at our English tuition in Singapore, our students will do more than just listen to our English lessons.

This education approach is the opposite of passive learning, which is teacher-centered rather than student-centered. The active participation of each and every student is a necessary aspect in learning at our English tuition centre. We do not merely provide information to our students; we will also facilitate the learning process by getting students to engage their higher order thinking. In this manner, students can better internalise the knowledge gained in class.

Learning Retention Pyramid, based on Bloom’s taxonomy
Active learning is above, passive learning below

Through active learning, our students have transformed from passive listeners to active participants. Our past batches of students have a more in-depth appreciation of the English language after a series of inquiry, gathering and analysing information. Armed with a stronger understanding of English, it is no wonder that our students excelled in their school and national examinations.

With a dedicated team of exceptional tutors and an environment conducive for active learning at our English tuition centre, your child will soon be on their way to excel in their PSLE, A/O-level examinations.
