Ariel Tang, Primary 6, Methodist Girls’ School (From A to A* for PSLE English) attended LJEC’s Online Classes from May- Sep 2020
“I think that the online classes are as effective as the physical classes and online classes saves on traveling time which can be put to better use. In addition, I think that the teaching quality is the same in both types of classes. Before joining learning journey, I had problems with writing Compositions and Vocab Cloze passage as for compositions, I did not know how to apply the good phrases correctly but learning journey taught me the precise and accurate meanings of the phrases so I could put them to better use. Additionally, LJEC also helped to expand my vocabulary so I knew more words to fill in the blanks in the cloze passages and that enabled me to improved from an A to an A star. They covered all the PSLE components well and I find that all the techniques taught were the best among the other classes that I have experienced and they also provided a comprehensive range of composition samples and notes.
My experience at Learning Journey made me hungry for knowledge and ways to improve. I like that the classes give you sufficient time to do the homework given so I would be able to complete my homework easily and on time. The teachers have been very patient and kind to me. I really appreciate it. The classes are executed with only a few students in each class, that meant that the teachers have more time to spare to answer our questions. I would recommend Learning Journey to my friends as it really helped me tremendously to prepare for my PSLE, thus I am sure my friends would learn a lot from it too and they can benefit from the classes at Learning Journey and see results in a short span of time.”
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!

“Thank you for supporting my daughter in her PSLE journey . She was with LJEC from Nov 2016 till Sep 2017. Like magic, within 10 months, her grades jumped from B to A*. I could not imagine this great leap. I think this happened not only because she was taught techniques but also due to the words of motivation by teacher Helen and Grace. Those words really motivated her to do her home work every week!”
Anitha, Lavaanya’s mum, P6 Geylang Methodist
“I would like to thank Learning Journey for guiding Janelle in her English. Her compositions improved from the usual 20+ to at least 35. And never in a million years that we expect Janelle to get A* for her PSLE English. Thank you!” – Janelle’s mum, P6 St Hilda’s
“At Learning Journey, I have learnt techniques to answer every type of questions. I have also learnt how to hook the readers with an outstanding introduction and the formula to a brilliant introduction for my essays. During the Circuit Breaker, after going through the Online Classes with Learning Journey, I found them to be quite effective. The experience of online classes at Learning Journey was seamless even though it was such an abrupt change. For people who are living far from Learning Journey, the online classes would prove to be a good alternative as you can save time on travelling and still can learn as effectively as the physical classes At Learning Journey, the classes are highly personalised and the teachers devise the best way to help us to learn better. The in-depth class discussions were extremely beneficial in both the physical and online classes.

Learning Journey helped me improve my English grades with great significance. It’s teaching and learning atmosphere also fosters a comfortable learning environment that motivates students to write better essays! The individualised feedback and inputs from LJEC teachers really made a difference in helping me to improve on my essay writing.
Jiang Yatong, IP4, Cedar Girls’ Secondary School
Through the notes, which provided me with content during tests, the rigourous practices that allowed me to hone my skills and my teacher’s feedback on my essays that have helped me to improve. I have learnt useful comprehension answering techniques and step by step methods to write interesting discursive essays. The experience at learning journey was great. I like the fact that classes are usually light-hearted. The teachers were kind and caring and the notes provided me with good content to score in exams and there were a lot of practices to hone my writing.
Classes at learning journey are engaging and very useful, and I was able to learn a lot compared to other tuition classes. Also, my teacher was willing to mark the extra work that I have done and gave me good feedback. I would recommend Learning Journey to my friends as they have really helped me to improve my language. I am able to write much better now and it has allowed me to secure an A1 for O levels English, from an unstable grade of A2/B3 for English a year ago.
Samuel Boon, Sec 4 Express (2019), Catholic High
Over the past year at LJEC, I feel that I am now more aware of the different methods and approaches especially when answering questions in the Comprehension paper as well as the methods used to write essays and formulate critical responses. Prior to this, I would say that I didn’t have a clear idea of how to answer any of the questions in my English papers and because of that, my results were not satisfactory. However, I believe that from the lessons at LJEC, I was able to build at least a decent foundation and set up distinct and clear ways to approach different types of questions in exams. I think what I liked best about the classes at LJEC was that it did not have too many students in 1 class at any point of time. As compared to learning/studying in school where class sizes are at least 30++ people for 1 class, having a small class size makes it more comfortable for naturally quieter/shyer students (like me) to speak up and ask questions. I also like how the teachers over here at LJEC constantly go the extra mile to track their students’ progress and tailor their lessons to fit the learning styles of their respective students/classes because it motivates the students to continue to grow and improve further.

Coming to learning journey has improved my English grades tremendously. I went from borderline passes to As for compo writing in a span of 1 year. Learning Journey has the friendliest and most efficient teachers that could adapt to not only mine but also my classmates’ learning styles, ensuring success stories, proving money and time well spent. I really enjoyed my classes here 🙂

“From barely passing to getting an A, Learning Journey’s English classes has certainly helped me to do much better. The teachers are very patient, kind and caring and their fun methods of teaching has allowed me to get a better understanding and cultivate my love for English. Under their watchful eyes, every mistake is corrected, lessons are taught effectively and I have benefited greatly from this. Their tips and tricks have allowed me to learn the techniques to answering questions and get me to score better. An hour and a half for each lesson may not be a lot but each time I exit the centre, I would leave with a new piece of knowledge. Thank you Learning Journey for helping me improve my English!”
“ I graduated in 2019 and Learning Journey Education Centre has really helped me alot for Os! I was with them for about a year when I first started around December in secondary 3 and my English grades were horrendous(F9) throughout my secondary life but thanks to the Teachers’ patient guidance throughout my journey with them, I managed to get a B3 in O levels, for which I’m extremely grateful for.
LJEC uses a different and unique teaching method, which is that after every major school exam, they will review our test papers individually and give specific comments and advice on how to improve on the different components. For example I remember my comprehension was really weak so the Teachers gave me a lot of comprehension practices and in-depth explanation. Furthermore, LJEC has their in-house materials which Principal- teacher Grace personally compiled and these books are filled with valuable resources (like points,examples,good phrases to use for the different compo topics) which I found really helpful as I felt like I was better prepared compared to others due to having this advantage against the rest!
LJEC has customised lesson plans based on the students’ needs and the Teachers will teach according to your needs which is really useful. I went to several other tuition centres and they have a rigid timetable of (compo, comprehension and so on) .
Honestly speaking, I would recommend LJEC as they provide really good resources and they customise to your needs which other tuition centres often lack.
On a side note, the teachers always gives us snacks and makes sure we are mentally healthy to continue studying as they understand that the O levels is a hard and tiring journey for students, which I really appreciate!

“Dear Teachers, thank you for helping me improve my English grade from a C6 to B3 within 3 weeks of intensive lessons before SA2. The small, conducive study environment allows for one-to-one tutoring and at the same time encouraging in depth small group discussion for topics related to what is done in school. I hope to continue to improve and achieve better results under your tutelage.”
Improved for AQ to 8/10, Composition paper to 31/40 and Paper 2
“The classes at Learning Journey has definitely helped improve my English grades tremendously. The resources provided here are extremely informative and the small classes allow the teachers to focus specifically on our weaknesses. During classes, we also do intensive composition planning and learn useful AQ answering techniques. The lessons are very productive and cover a lot of useful content and examples.The Teachers also take efforts to explain and conduct in-depth discussions based on the notes and articles prepared for us. For current affairs, the Teachers also share recent articles with the class so that we have quality content to ace our essays and AQ sections.”

“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!
– Mrs Lim, son in Victoria School Sec 2
Spot on! The 2016 PSLE English composition topic given “A Secret” – our students had done the topic in our classes and read at least 3 model compositions (top scoring compositions written by our own students!) on it previously.
“Thanks for spotting the PSLE 2017 Composition topic and making sure she practiced it well! She said the composition question was easy! You are so good at spotting the composition topic! Thanks for preparing her well!”
Mrs Tan, mum of P6 student
“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
“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 was scoring borderline marks for her paper 2 (50+ marks) and has made much improvement since. 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.”

I attended only 2 lessons and my SA1 composition grade jumped to Band 1 from 20/40 (a recent composition I wrote in class)!
Cody, P6, Rosyth School
Teacher Grace taught me useful techniques that I can use for my English paper 2. I have not learnt these methods in my other tuition centre or at school. I applied these techniques and got 14/15 for the comprehension cloze practice paper I did immediately in class!

“My son hates Chinese. Despite changing so many Chinese tutors, he was quite discouraged with his grades. We are very thankful for Mdm Lim’s gentle encouragement that spurred his interest in the subject again. At least he is more inclined to do practice on his own !! That’s unbelievable !! Then with the recent SA1, he actually passed by 8 marks ! He was shocked, so are we !! 林老師，謝謝你!”
David’s mum, P5, St Gabriel’s
We are so happy for this student! Getting full marks from a borderline passing grade is certainly not easy! We are glad our bilingual teaching approach works for this group of students who are STRUGGLING WITH CHINESE!
“My compositions are usually very short (less than 1 page). Within 3 months, I managed to use more than 10 good phrases in my composition. I have never used so many good phrases in my Chinese composition. I also managed to remember and use an 11 word phrase in my class composition and my Chinese teacher praised me for the first time. I felt so happy.”

PRESCHOOL ENRICHMENT PROGRAMMES
The small class environment and a group of patient teachers allows my child to have more interaction with the teachers. My child looks forward to attend every lesson! The teachers also give a debrief after each lesson to update me on my child’s progress. That helps us to understand our child’s learning needs better.
