Why Do Most Students Not Do Well in English?

Ever felt like giving up because your studies became too overwhelming?

Your grades in English, or any other subject, might cause you to be concerned, and you might start to feel the below:

Panic. Stress. And even worse, depression.

So you decide to practice more. That’s a good idea, but it has its drawbacks. While you improve initially, you begin to struggle and realise that you’ve hit a block. Your grades slow down, you might become socially distant from your family as you try to focus more on studies, believing that pure hardwork is the answer.

Spoiler alert: It’s just half of the answer. The other half is proper goal setting and skills acquiring.

Contrary to popular belief, you do need a proper goal setting structure in place if you wish to excel in English. For Comprehension, you need to be aware of the different types of questions: Literal, Inferential, Language Use, Summary, and so on…these are just some examples.

For Composition, you have a wide myriad of possibilities: Narrative, Descriptive, Argumentative, Discursive, and Hybrid questions.

Yes, it’s no longer as easy as ‘just practicing’.

For us at The Arts & Humanities Lair, we ask you to focus on what it is that you desire to score. You bring the passion and drive, we equip you with the skills.

-Teh Ru En, Sec 4 English, Pasir Ris Secondary School (Scored A1 for O’level English 2017)





Cadman, Sec 4 English, Meridian Secondary School (Scored B3 for O’level English 2017)

“Literature was a dreary subject at school, and the teachers made it no better. However, thanks to Mr Singh, who made his classes come alive, I was able to apply the techniques and skills imparted to me. I improved from an F9 to a B3!”

-Ishan Singh Gill, Sec 2 English Literature, Victoria School

“Mr Singh is an effective teacher who is dedicated to teaching beyond the classroom. He broke down essay skills and taught us to view the comprehension as a gold mine. Jovial, yet relatable, Mr Singh also gave us many real-life examples. Thank you for boosting my English grade from an E8 to A2!”

-Miko, Secondary 3 English, Meridian Secondary School

“He constantly follows up with us after class to ensure that we have understood the skills required in the examinations. Attending lessons by Mr Singh has helped me to clarify my thought processes, and better pen them down into words. While I was a strong student in English, he has enabled me to pinpoint my weaknesses (the summary question), and work on them.”

-Javier, Secondary 4 English, Junyuan Secondary School

“Good, patient teacher who looked past my playfulness and helped me improve from an F9 to B4. Hope to score better in the coming O’levels!”

-Yi Pin, Secondary 4 English, Junyuan Secondary School

“Having come from a primary school where the medium is Chinese, naturally English was my weakest subject. However, Mr Singh’s patience and dedication, as well as easy-to-learn skills, saw me improving from a D7 in my Sec 1 MYE to B4 in my Sec 1 End of Year Examinations. While I have room for improvement, as Mr Singh says, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. “

-Xiang Ming, Secondary 1 English East Spring Secondary School


“The workshop was very useful. Mr Tejash is a good tutor who is patient, and always willing to help weaker students. Under him, I have not only improved my marks in English, but have also learnt to be curious about my surroundings. ” Furqan, Hai Sing Catholic School

“While I am usually shy and don’t interact much, at The Arts Lair, I felt I was able to open up more. Mr Tejash took the time to patiently explain my mistakes to me. Thanks Cher!” – Pannathorn, P4, 

“This tuition centre is quite fun. I like to come here.”  –Maryam, Changkat Changi Primary School
