Our Dedicated Teachers

Mrs Goh used to teach alone, but over time, she has selected a professional pool; of teachers to help students progress in the language. She is stringent in her teacher selection. She teaches with a a group of dedicated teachers who were mostly former MOE teachers. They share her philosophy in education and have to undertake training to identify with her teaching quality so that her students will yield the most benefit. Each teacher applies a unique set of teaching style which Mrs Goh has permitted to ensure that we cater to students of diverse learning needs.

💻A Word from the Founder

 

Before you can pen a great piece of creative writing, you have to master the mechanics: from the fundamentals of grammar and style, to how to create a compelling story arc. Before you can relay your setting to the reader, you have to imagine where and when your character is in the story. That requires teaching. Mentoring, on the other hand, focuses more on applying knowledge in practice. Not just how to do something, but why it’s useful. We know our kids live in the digital era. They are now more informed, more discerning. It is no longer about rote learning. There is plenty of work to be done : explaining the rationale of techniques, teaching the student how to make informed choices and also stimulating creativity. Creativity and stronger language proficiencies are now needed in the PSLE, the O-levels, the IP and the IB. Even kindergarten kids are engaged in critical thinking as they read. Literal questions are now increasingly replaced by inferential ones.

 

It is important for me to work with a a group of dedicated teachers who share my philosophy in Education. Writers Studio’s teaching team undergo an apprenticeship programme. For those who meet requirements, they have been teaching in the centre for years. All teachers have to be qualified with a degree in English Language and/ or Literature. They need to yield strong records in achieving results and/ or significant progress with their students. It is also true that our long term clients appreciate our high standards and it attests to the fact that we only want the best for our students. Our students are tenacious, ambitious and independent thinkers and I am proud of them.
