Not Your Average GP Tuition 

Our Approach

Our GP enrichment classes cover the current syllabus requirements from the Ministry of Education. Our curriculum is pitched at the academic level of top-ranking schools in Singapore, and focusses on the important know-how required to skilfully navigate GP.

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:

Benefits

Our English enrichment for General Paper students is a comprehensive and intensive programme with clear benefits:

  • weekly discussion of local and global news relevant to GP needs
  • promotes critical thinking and analyses of global issues and arguments
  • imparts clear techniques that enable students to ace their exam components
  • ensures that students get regular, intensive practice on key exam components
  • enforces weekly return of scripts and personalised feedback from teachers
  • builds students' vocabulary word bank and grammar competencies
  • enables students to express themselves clearly in writing to meet exam needs

Our programme will teach students how to analyse texts and respond to them in a learned manner. With the structured pedagogy in essay writing, comprehension, summary and application questions, students can be empowered to become better thinkers, readers and writers. As we strive to be more than just a GP tuition programme, we hope to gift students with critical thinking and persuasive writing skills that they can apply not only in an exam hall, but also in a wide variety of settings.

Creative Campus believes in personalised coaching in a group setting, where students learn not only from their teachers but also benefit from interaction with their peers.

Essentially, the following is what I found to be the Key Tenets to Acing GP

Chua Su Ann is an ex-GP student who benefitted from our programme. She is a Raffles Institution Alumna, and currently pursuing law at SMU. Read snippets from her testimonial below:

1

Personalised Feedback

What was incredibly useful was how, from the get-go, Ms Chew was able to help me effectively by going through my previous examination papers and practices before I started. Being extremely experienced, she was able to instantly pinpoint areas for improvement and I was able to work on these areas from the very first lesson. Subsequently, as my strengths and weaknesses shifted, Ms Chew would also pick up on new areas for me to work on and there was always a learning point to take home.

2

Stimulating Discussions

I really appreciated how we would engage in discussions regarding the topic at hand – by seeking out alternative viewpoints on the topics, I was well-trained in casting my net wider when it came to generating content points to discuss in the essay. The discussions also helped me to formulate better counterpoints and antitheses.

3

Wide Scope of Topics

As someone who rarely reads the newspaper, it was of great help to me that we would always start the lesson with a short section on interesting and educational videos. It was a refreshing way to kick-start the lesson while also receiving snippets of facts and data that I could use in my writing. In addition, we covered a wide range of topics such as society and culture, technology and the rat race and so on. I felt that the range paved the way for more stimulating discussions and truly gave us more space to innovate, rather than simply being made to memorise facts about science and technology.

Focused Time-trials

Being tasked to complete marked time-trials really helped to prepare me for the examinations as I did not receive much practice in school, and barely had much time out of lessons to practice on my own. Doing the practices in class helped immensely in honing my speed and sharpness of thinking. I used to waffle more when writing, and often ended up speeding through my points at the end when I realised that I was running out of time, leading to inconsistent essays. Thus, the practices in GP lessons really helped me learn how to monitor and allot my time more efficiently. I also benefitted greatly from how Ms Chew taught us to plan our essays beforehand as I often took too long to plan and decide on the question.

When I entered Year 5 in January 2014, General Paper was, at first, a perpetual stumbling block for me academically. A far cry from the English paper we had in Year 4, GP necessitated an amalgamation of argumentative skill and general knowledge that I simply was not used to.

However, I felt that the weekly lessons at Creative Campus under the tutelage of Ms Chew were a great boon, not only owing to the fact that I had an excellent avenue to hone my argumentative and comprehension skills, but also because Ms Chew always managed to expertly weave a vast array of content matter and discussions into her lessons, allowing me to gain a greater appreciation of the socio-political situation of the world today.

Ms Chew’s personalised feedback and guidance allowed me to pinpoint my flaws and areas of weakness, thus enabling me to become a more concise and focused writer. Eventually, after pulling my GP grade up from as low as a C during my Year 6 CT1 to an A in the A levels, I am sincerely thankful towards Ms Chew and Creative Campus for helping me clearing this hurdle that is General Paper and for the numerous skills and knowledge I have accumulated here.
