In order to give each of our students the attention and feedback that they need, we keep our class sizes small (2-8 students each) for all levels. While we do acknowledge that academic results are important, T.W teachers do not just make the acquisition of a good grade the focal point of our students’ education. Instead, we believe that a student’s ability to take pride in writing and speaking in English well, and to have the confidence to adapt his or her language to suit a range of different contexts, far outweigh the value of a single printed letter on their results slip.

[/av_textblock] [av_heading heading=’Cultivating Good Writing ‘ tag=’h3′ style=” size=” subheading_active=” subheading_size=’15’ padding=’10’ color=” custom_font=”][/av_heading] [av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”] Think. Write was formed on the core belief that learning to write well should not be a mundane and gruelling drill, but an enriching and enjoyable experience. Unsurprisingly, with the art of writing reduced to merely memorising model essays and key catchphrases in school, many students struggle with developing any kind of personal style, cogency and sophistication. This is not helped by the stressful conditions of our education system, where there are specific requirements to which students have to adhere. These requirements tend to turn writing into a very rigid process, instead of being a rewarding process of transforming half-formed thoughts into concrete and expressive words.

T.W teachers are educators who believe that proper guidance, not instruction, is the key to developing good writers. This is why we only select teachers who are excellent writers themselves, whose expertise and sensitivity towards the nuances of language have been honed by experience. This allows them to address our students’ writing difficulties with creative strategies and precise solutions. Rather than spoon feeding them, our teachers guide our students towards reasoning and reflecting over their own essays, particularly when it comes to their responses to examination questions. They then challenge students to review their work and consider how precise or wayward their interpretation of the question has been, before coaching them towards improvement. This allows students to be independent thinkers, which serves them well in an examination setting and in life.
