English is one of the subjects that many students in Singapore find daunting. Trying to get an ‘A’ for the subject can be so frustrating that some students find themselves hating it. 

In Augustine’s English Classes, we try to turn every lesson into a learning journey. At our English tuition centre for both primary and secondary students, we firmly believe that learning English should be a meaningful and enjoyable process.

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

We firmly adhere to the principle that students’ faith in themselves gives them more motivation to keep going till they find their success. On the one hand, low or no belief might prevent them from achieving even if they are just as able. The greatest success for our programme will be if our students depend on their own abilities for academic success at school and in life in general. Through the provision of knowledge and new skills, we’ve seen them grow in their positives behavior and performance. Furthermore, as well as attaining lots of knowledge in the process, we as teachers learn how to teach better, and as a result, our students do very well in their exams as well. Nevertheless, we aim for more: we set ablaze the desire to learn and the interest to education which will never be extinguished. Along with simple tutoring, our principal objective is to contribute or assist students to do as best they can in life.

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
