My son used to be reluctant and show little interest in English. But when The Learning Board came into our lives, they motivated him greatly and even went the extra mile of calling him and checking on his homework and problems in school. Teacher Clarence was a great guardian, tutor and friend to my son.

Success Story

Xavier was a 12 years old boy preparing for his PSLE. He was struggling to express himself clearly and had little confidence in his writing.

Within 4 months, his teacher from The Learning Board's tuition programme guided Xavier to raise questions and discuss his ideas actively. Classroom interaction helped him to broaden his knowledge and overcome his shyness. As a result, his grade improved from C to A.
