English Mastery Secondary 3

English Mastery for Secondary 3 prepares your child to handle the challenges he or she undertakes as she transits from lower to upper secondary. Comparative to lower secondary English Language assessment criteria, the upper secondary comprehension texts in paper 2 are more challenging, accompanied with more complex in-direct comprehension questions that not only assess students’ ability to understand the text but also on how they craft their answers coherently.


It is therefore critical that students hone in their skills as soon as they can. Our English tuition programme also helps students identify their preferred writing style and text type so that they are able to leverage on their strengths. During these weekly 2-hour lessons, your child will learn to:

  • overcome inconsistency in the score for specific sections of paper 1 using timely progress report and tracking by our trainers.
  • build proficiency in editing and visual text comprehension using P.A.C.
  • craft correct answers for different kinds of in-direct comprehension questions (Language used and inferential)
  • identify his or her own strength in continuous writing (He or she obtains consistency in word length, paragraph-structure, personal responses and ability to emphasise one’s opinion sufficiently and coherently in writing)


Your child will be taught other useful strategies as well and put them to use with in-house curriculum crafted by our team of experienced teachers. These strategies are designed to complement the MOE syllabus and enhance students' learning.


Our students will learn to apply these newly acquired strategies through 4 phases:

  1.    Demonstrate – Teacher do 
  2.    Guided discovery – We do (teacher and students)
  3.    Collaboration – Students do (group)
  4.    Self-practice – You do
