Why Confidence?

Why should we focus on Confidence? Confidence is the belief in one's ability to succeed. Improving the ability comes with being prepared.

At LK Academy, we believe that confidence is needed in both the spoken as well as written components of the exam and it is prevalent in our everyday lives.

Lessons are aligned with MOE syllabus for mainstream schools. Segments of the English paper are planned such that the components are executed in our classes in preparation for school assessments.

How is Creative Writing Incorporated in our English Composition Writing Lessons?

The Composition Writing segment of our Confidence for English programmes guides students to write MOE tailored compositions using effective creative writing strategies to help them score in school. Our students learn to incorporate our unique techniques in creative writing for primary school into their compositions with our teachers' guidance.

Through our specially designed writing curriculum, creative writing in a composition is our main focus when it comes to helping students score.

The focus on creative writing elements such as character development, plot development, conflict resolution and imaginative language is imprinted onto our students through our English composition tuition. This allows our students to add a personal element of flair to their writing assessments.

By using the creative writing techniques, our students will be able to write compositions with deeper plots, while focusing on the title and pictures given. This mixed together with LK Academy's composition curriculum will enable our young writers to excel and wow their markers in any given situation.

These creative writing techniques will be instilled in our students as they prepare and write their composition writing, whether in LK Academy or for their school examinations.

Confidence for English (P1 - P4) and Confidence PSLE programmes (P5 - P6), our programmes under the Primary English Tuition, incorporate creative writing techniques into our composition writing lessons.

What Parents Say

"LK has truly nurtured my child's interest genuinely to enjoy learning and understanding of the language. My child looks forward to class every week and looks forward to meeting with her teacher. A happy environment with the patient guidance of her teacher really enabled her to benefit academically. Not only that, she has grown in her personal development as well when it comes to having confidence to speak and express her thoughts well. Her confidence had been slowly built to apply what she has learnt. She knows she can do it for her daily work and exam papers!"

Sabrina Mum of Astor, P2
