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.

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

For this reason, we have created a unique teaching formula based on a decade of qualitative research in teaching methodologies and active learning strategies. This teaching pedagogy is practiced during both our Primary and Secondary English tuition classes, motivating students to participate actively. More importantly, this scientific-based approach to learning empowers every single student in the tuition class and creates a positive attitude in them towards learning. By helping your child to develop a passion for the English language, the learning experience will become a lot more enjoyable, and soon their results will see significant improvements.

To further ensure that students at our Primary and Secondary School English tuition classes are given the edge to excel in school exams, our curriculum systematically covers all the components in school exams such as grammar and vocabulary, writing methods and comprehension techniques, all based on the latest MOE syllabus. With our comprehensive programmes for English tuition, our students have seen significant improvements in their grades.

Our English tuitions will not only impart in your child the skills to tackle the challenging examinations, it will also motivate them to master the language.

Now, just after a month of primary school English tuition with Teacher Augustine, he has grown to enjoy reading books and always finishes his homework on time.

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.

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.

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, students will do more than just listen in our English tuitions.

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.

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.

Some Examples of Active Learning Activities in our English Tuition Centre

  • Think Pair Share: our students will share and discuss their own answers with their neighbours
  • Peer Review: students will evaluate the work of other classmates.
  • Role Playing: students will “act out” a part. This allows the students to look at the topic from the perspective of a character, thus allowing them to have a better understanding of the ideas discussed.
  • Problem solving using real data: students use a variety of data to explore real-world problems.
  • Just in Time Teaching: students prepare for class by completing assignments, then participate in collaborative exercises the following class period.
  • Game-Based Learning: learning activities that are intrinsically game-like, such as by pitting students against each other in a “competition”.
