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. The same is true when learning Science. Thus, our Secondary Science Tuition in Singapore focuses on confidence.

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 Science paper are planned such that the components are executed in our classes in preparation for school assessments. Let your child experience the difference in our Secondary Science Tuition today.

Secondary Science Tuition

The scientific approach to understanding and answering questions will be refined and enhanced through our Secondary Science Tuition. This allows students to identify keywords linking to various topics. In our secondary science tuition, students will sharpen their skill sets which will serve them well in their exams throughout their secondary school life.

With a fine-tuned blend of classroom based, tactile and visual learning, topics in our Secondary Science Tuition will be brought to life with tangible experience. This will enhance students' learning experience with confidence, as they work their way to 'N' and/or 'O' Levels through our Confidence for Secondary Science Tuition Programme.

Methodology

Students will develop discerning skills in our Secondary Science tuition in order to be more critical of scientific experiments. They will hone their ability to question what variable is being manipulated and what variable is being measured. This deepens their knowledge of experiments and allows a scientific approach to experiments to be inculcated. In our Secondary Science tuition, students will be able to formulate reasons for scientific phenomena. LK Academy's curriculum will allow students to improve on inferring and analysing relationships between questions and methods used to answer questions. This allows them to make astute observations which aid in their understanding. Students will be coached on checking back to evaluate if their answers address the question adequately.

LK Academy will inculcate a mature and responsible mindset that learning continues outside of the classroom. Our goal is to develop motivated and confident students through effective Secondary Science tuition in Singapore.

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!"
