Ms Geraldine Chew, Director of Programmes (Secondary and General Paper) reflects on the English O-Level exams:
"I am very heartened by my students' achievements in the 2019 English O-Level exams. Many worked hard to see improvements of up to 3 grades! For instance, Brian Liew joined my class in April 2019 and in 6 months, saw a boost in his English grades and confidence."
“I joined Creative Campus with a grade of B4 in English. However, under Ms Geraldine Chew’s coaching, I achieved a distinction in the O Levels. I thoroughly enjoyed her lively teaching and her care for students. She has been a tremendous help to me.”
(ACS(I), O Levels 2019)
“Ms Chew has provided me with patient guidance and has gone the extra mile to ensure that I really grasped the concepts introduced in every lesson. I would like to thank her for her unwavering attentiveness and assurance that helped me improve in English significantly.”
(Cedar Girls, O Levels 2019) scored a much deserved A1 for English.
"Having taught O-Level candidates for over 20 years, I strongly urge students who need help with the English papers to get that guidance early. Early preparation means more practice and better assurance in getting a distinction in English, thereby boosting the L1R5 score too."

This is a rare window into an essay writing lesson. The students were given 3 questions and this was the one question that no one chose because they found it difficult:
"Many receive an education, but few are educated."

The lessons in Creative Campus have been an enriching experience for me. Not only are they fun but also effective as they reinforce structure and planning which help in essay writings. The lessons give an opportunity for students to freely express their personal views and opinions on issues discussed in class. Usually, there would be materials given on the issues brought up in class. These add to the fun element in lessons which would engage students in an interactive way.
