English Composition Writing Classes
Each week, our students complete a full English composition in class.
One topic is attempted twice. First week will be guided where the teacher demonstrates how to attempt the topic while providing good words and phrases for the composition topic. Second week will be independent where the students will demonstrate what they have learned.
Brainstorming & Story planning
Each week, students are to provide the story plan to the teacher. After approving the story plan, students begin writing in class. Using our story planning tool, students learn how to avoid going out of point. They learn how to plan efficiently.
Individualised attention & feedback
While in class, the teacher gives individualised feedback paragraph by paragraph and finally the student submits the composition at the end of the lesson.
Composition marking & students progress
The composition is handed to our in-house markers. Our experienced in-house markers consists of those who have been part of MOE or who carry over ten years experience in teaching English & composition writing. This helps us maintain objectivity and properly gauge how a student will perform in exams. Students then do corrections or rewrites to earn rewards. They are also encouraged to complete extra assessment books on the side to earn attractive prizes. Each week, our parents are sent the graded compositions via whatsapp.
Vocabulary lists & focus on creative writing language skills
Our weekly composition writing lessons provide
Topic-related keywords & useful phrases.
Interactive assessment books that cover various areas of creative writing. (Idioms, proverbs, adjectives etc)
Commonly tested PSLE, Prelim and MOE-based school toipics covered.
Our composition writing system produces results!
We work closely with parents to ensure good scores. Our graduates who ended up getting AL1 & A1 are students who have been in our programme long enough. We see better results with students who diligently do corrections & rewrites. Most importantly, begin your creative writing journey early! Writing is like a muscle.
How to score good marks in PSLE composition writing?
Here is an example of the marking Rubics for both Content.
For content, to score between 18 to 20 marks, not only should the story stand out, but it must also be relevant to the theme. The story path must be clear and logical and most importantly the student must use at least one of the pictures.
PSLE composition has recurring themes. The ideal storyline is about the main character learning a lesson related to the theme. The titles may vary a little, but the theme is the same. Some examples of topics from recurring themes
A wrong decision
A kind act
A wasted opportunity
An act of honesty
The aim of our weekly programme is to expose our students to the most commonly tested themes. Each theme is different and needs to be treated differently. This is called story treatment. We teach students how to write for each theme. We teach them how to pace, which areas to emphasise and equip them with storytelling tools to craft the best storyline for the theme presented.
Here is an example of the marking Rubics for both Language.
For language, to score between 18 to 20 marks, vocabulary words related to the theme should be ideally used. Spelling, grammar and punctuation are the three key areas that would affect the results for this section. Good phrases, idioms, proverbs, figures of speech, character descriptions can help a student score between 18 to 20.
Our weekly classes provide vocabulary words and phrases related to the theme for the week. However, it is not enough. This is why we provide extra assessment books along with our weekly lessons. With a robust reward system, where students can redeem points to buy gifts and game currency, we motivate students to complete various assessment books to boost language skills.
Our auto-marking interactive assessment books are always free for our students. Here are some examples of our assessment books provided to our students.
Free sample to our assessment books are available to the public. Please check under free resources. Non members can also purchase the digital copies if they wish. Kindly whatsapp us.
"My son has shown tremendous improvement in his english composition after joining The Write Tribe. He started at a stage where he was struggling to write even sentences to now where he can write a whole compo easily. Previously, it was so painful to read his writing 😅.
The online lessons are also engaging and interesting. The kids are definitely motivated to do well with the cool reward system in place. Highly recommended! 😍😍😍"
"I learnt a lot at this place Expecially the format and the writing techniques of certain subjects was really helpful. Learning there improved my marks a lot and I hope this place can get more people to join. Special thanks to the creative writing teacher
For online trial lessons, kindly fill up the form provided, and we will contact you shortly if there is availability. Do take note that typing is required. Laptop or computer is preferred to an iPad as it helps the teacher fix the student’s errors. If classes are full and if your child scores average and above, you may like to consider our ad-hoc programmes.
How do I know if this is the right program for my child?
Good writing is a habit. The longer you stick to a program, the better the results. However, they are plenty of programs out there and as a parent, we understand your dilemma in making the right decision. Rest assured! We are parents too and we understand finding the right long term program for your child can be stressful. This is why we make it easy for you to know what we offer before you make that commitment.
