When parents of our prospective students come to ask us ‘Why should I enrol my child in Future Academy?’, we tell them a few things. We can tell them about our tutors’ qualifications, the wonderful results of our students, and so on. But the biggest factor that really affects students is the actual learning process and environment.
What kind of teaching style can a student expect at Future Academy? What makes learning at Future Academy different from anywhere else?
Short of joining a class and experiencing it for yourself, here’s our brief little tour of what it’s like to study at Future Academy.
Patient and friendly tutors
We often emphasise the qualifications of our tutors. Yes! Our tutors are majority ex-MOE teachers, meaning they are trained teachers, and they have some experience teaching in MOE schools. Some even come from top schools like RGS, NYGH, HCI, and RI, so they are familiar with the most rigorous type of syllabus, such as the IP syllabus.
But besides knowing that your tutor is knowledgeable and trained in teaching pedagogy, you can also rest assured knowing they are very patient and friendly!
We are no ‘tiger moms’ here. We want students to be unafraid of approaching us to ask questions and get feedback. It’s okay not to understand, as long as you are willing to learn, because we are willing to repeat and explain again.
Of course, some level of discipline and self-initiative is needed on your part; but we are definitely not here to scare you into studying. Instead, we hope you will learn enjoyably and without fear!
Targeted study help
Some students don’t want to go for tuition because they don’t want to get even more homework! Unfortunately, we cannot say we won’t give you homework.
Instead, we can give you homework that is highly relevant and targeted to what you need to learn. Such worksheets are essential in helping students consolidate and revise their learning throughout the week.
Our worksheets and homework are designed to give students targeted practice, according to skills, specific topics, and levels of ability. This way, we can even customise the learning materials we give you, so that you get the most appropriate worksheet for the weakest parts of your subject.
Isn’t this better than wasting time on homework that you already mastered, or worksheets that only confuse you even more?
There are pros and cons of different class sizes or even one-to-one tuition. However, we believe small-group learning has the best advantages in terms of overall balance!
When you enrol with us, you will be placed into a small group class of not more than 6 students. This creates a tight-knit group where students find it a safe space to voice out their doubts without fear of judgment.
Tutors can also dedicate more attention to individual students, as compared to if they were lecturing a group of 20 or more students. With more interaction, students will also feel more engaged in the class, retain more information that they have learnt, and build a positive experience of learning the subject.
And that’s all for a little glimpse of what it’s like to attend tuition at Future Academy! We know there’s no one-size-fits-all type of tuition, but if this sounds like something for you, don’t hesitate to speak to us to find out more!
Another of our biggest advantages is our wide range of options of subjects, timings, and convenient options for you to attend. We cater to subjects from Primary School English Tuition all the way to JC Physics Tuition classes, and operate from 3 locations islandwide, as well as provide online tuition classes. This makes it super accessible for any student to reach us and attend our classes!
