English

At Penciltutor, the English lessons are designed to meet the needs of students of all proficiency levels. We aim to strengthen students’ foundation by teaching them how grammar and punctuation works, and by getting students to use accurate grammar and punctuations in their writing. We expand students’ linguistic ability at the same time through teaching vocabulary in context. Students learn new words meaningfully by reading a variety of texts, instead of just memorising the words.
Our English lessons also focus on question analysis. Students do not simply do practice papers, but they learn how to identify the different questions types and come up with more accurate answers.

Mathematics

The study of Mathematics is about learning the different ways we can apply logic and calculation in our daily lives. At Penciltutor School, we work toward having our students not just memorise the different formulas, but also understand and properly apply them in actual scenarios.
We utilise a combination of applications and practices to ensure that all students understand how to interpret and solve mathematical problems.

Additional Mathematics

Additional Mathematics builds upon the foundation of Mathematics learnt. A large chunk of this is a focus on calculus. We ensure that every student is equipped with the correct understanding of the theories taught in Additional Mathematics so that they will perform well at the ‘O’ levels, as well as any further studies, with the knowledge that they require and not just pure memorisation of formulas.

Science

Physics

Physics is the study of the world around us. While most schools tend to focus on the theories of Physics, here at Penciltutor School, we not only teach the theories but try to help students see the practical aspect to the different theories they learn.
We believe that by being able to imagine the way that the different topics work in their daily life, each student will have a better grasp of the different applications that are taught in the syllabus.

Chemistry

Chemistry focuses on the study of chemicals and how they interact with one another.
At Penciltutor School, we help students identify the most common chemicals, and get them familiarised with the properties of these chemicals so that they are able to recognize them easily in the examinations. We also go through the syllabus systematically to ensure that every student is prepared for the ‘O’ levels.
