Find out how Sam, a primary 4 student, managed to improve his English composition marks from 7/20 to 30/40 (Primary 5) after using the Super Writers™ 4-3-2-1 technique taught in our classes.
It is not easy for a child to “suddenly” become a proficient writer.
It is challenging to teach students creative writing because it is something very personal and every child writes differently. Thus, a personal touch is required when guiding a child on composition writing. We have also seen that the earlier (in lower primary) they learn the correct writing techniques, the better the retention of the techniques through their upper primary years.
Does your child face these problems when it comes to composition writing?
His teacher teaches him beautiful phrases but he never uses them in his composition. His composition is disorganized and full of grammatical and spelling errors.
Our students shared some of the problems they encountered:
“I hate to write compositions! I don’t want to write!”
“I don’t know what the meaning of the phrases.”
“I don’t know how to use the phrases.”
“I don’t know which part of the composition to add in the phrases.”
“I want to write better compositions, but I don’t know how to improve.”
So… I just write how I always write because that’s the easiest! (sounds familiar?)
Reading books on model compositions and writing more compositions might not necessarily translate to better composition grades. Why?
The reason is because, in composition writing, the hardest part is how a child transfers his knowledge (planning, good phrases) into reality.
So, why do our students show so much improvement in such a short period of time?
They go through a 4 step process:
And this is the secret to our students’ success…
In our small classes, our teachers sit down with each student and go through their composition to guide them on the following:
How to write better sentences (grammar, sentence variation and structure),
How exactly to use the phrases that have been taught in class,
What exactly to improve on, e.g. which part of the story to improve on, the gaps in the composition, etc.
How to improve their story flow, introduction, story climax and conclusions.
Some useful materials that are covered in our Super Writers classes:
50 commonly tested composition topics in primary schools (based on the new PSLE format)
We use this list a lot for composition writing practice to get our students to familiarise with the difficult topics and It was no surprise that most of our students’ SA1 composition questions came from this list that we gave them! Good for them!
Model compositions written by our students and teachers
The more they read, the better they get, because they realised what is expected of them! It inspires our students to write as good as, if not better than their peers!
Writing techniques: 5 senses and feelings description, excellent phrases, Interesting introductions, excellent endings and many more!
“My son’s English grades improved from a B to A within 3 months!
We are so confident with Grace and her team that we also enrolled Calen for the Chinese writing class. And after 3 months, his grades improved from a C to A! Many thanks to Grace and her team for doing a fantastic job!”
Mummy of Calen, P6 Catholic High
Within 3 months, my girl’s composition writing improved from 24 marks to 32 after joining Learning Journey in Dec’15. She went on to score 34 marks (Compo) in her P6 SA1, and 80/95 (Paper 2), a remarkable improvement and achievement! Thanks to teacher Grace for her patience and unique style of teaching! Personally, I also like teacher Grace’s open conmunication with parents. Kudos to teacher Grace and her team, keep up the good work!

“Ever since my daughter attended the Super Writers English tuition classes, she started scoring above 30 marks for her class compositions from 20+ marks. She is now more motivated and confident and hopes to score at least 70 marks for her SA1! Thank you Teachers for guiding her patiently.”
Mother of Chloe, P6, Holy Innocents’ Primary School
Here’s a snapshot of a sample of students who joined us LAST YEAR (2015) and how they performed for their PSLE English.
Your child can take his first steps with us…by starting with our trial classes, where we will teach him some of the techniques and strategies our students used to achieve the above grades!
“Thank you Teacher Helen and Teacher Grace, for being so patient with teaching my daughter. I can see the improvements in her English (from borderline pass to 70%) and Chinese (from fail to Pass!)”
Mother of Tricia, P4, Xin Min Primary School (Super Writers English & Chinese)
“It has been almost a year since my child joined Learning Journey for the Super Writers (Secondary) English classes . Lessons so far according to him have been nothing short of engaging. He was also equipped with the skills necessary to do well for Paper 1& 2. This has certainly helped him to improve his score from B in Sec 1 to A for Sec 2, SA1 . In addition, what I like about this centre is the commitment of the teacher in charge of my son’s class & Ms Grace is very approachable & constantly sincere in helping her students to achieve. I’m glad my child did not disappoint her!
“Teacher Grace is a very patient teacher and is able to instill interest in the subject she teaches. Dominic showed improvement in his SA2 results after a few months under Grace .. She is able to explain the comprehension answering techniques well and makes it easy to understand.”
From borderline marks for SA1 paper 2 to 34/50 for SA2 paper 2
