Academia’s top-tier tutoring services, curriculum, positive learning environment, and remarkable results have earned them gold in this year’s Singapore Education Awards.
Say hello to our gold winner for Best English Language Enrichment Centre, Academia! This is the first time that we’re recognising the achievements and contributions of enrichment centres in the Singapore Education Awards, and we’re so happy for Academia to be part of this milestone.
For this category, we’re on the lookout for English language enrichment centres with excellent learning programmes and lesson materials that cater to every student’s needs. Our judges also took reviews from students and parents into consideration.
What makes Academia the Best English Language Enrichment Centre of 2023
Academia has been providing English tutoring services for a decade. It’s one of the top choices for parents, all of whom praise the tutors’ dedication and care towards their students. Students also give positive reviews about the centre’s teaching methods, said to be effective while being fun and engaging.
One of the features that makes Academia stand out are its curriculum and teaching methods. The centre uses a curriculum that’s fully built in-house, and its team of educators constantly adapt it to cater to students’ specific needs while aligning with the current syllabus. Led by a former top student and Princeton graduate, Academia’s teaching methods are grounded in evidence-based educational approaches. It combines the best from local educational practices, as well as strategies used at prestigious higher educational institutions and liberal arts colleges.
All of Academia’s tutors possess profound English expertise. But what sets their teaching methods apart are their diverse professional and academic backgrounds. The centre’s tutors include graduates from top local universities, Ivy League institutions, and Oxbridge. They also go through rigorous training in classroom management, the centre’s curriculum, and its unique in-depth marking style.
It’s also worth noting that students master more than just English through their tutors at Academia. Student interests are always incorporated into lessons to foster engagement. This way, students feel empowered, and get to further their knowledge in both English and their areas of interest. On top of that, Academia supports its students’ projects and provides them with guidance on scholarship essays and university interviews.
The results speak for themselves
So what’s the outcome of Academia’s teaching methods and curriculum, you ask? Outstanding results in the English language exams. In past years, the centre’s students have outperformed national averages: 60% of them scoring AL1s for their PSLE English, an almost 100% rate of A/B grades for O-Level English, and a more than 70% distinction rate for the A-Level General Paper.
To top it off, the centre regularly receives messages from students about their exam results and university acceptances. Many ex-students also continue to engage with their tutors. All of these are testaments to Academia’s excellent offerings.
Congratulations to Academia!
