IP English tuition

I joined Mr Wong in JC2 as I was struggling with my GP. For composition, the only topic that I was familiar with was Science and Technology. 


Mr Wong’s strengths are not only in Politics and Human Rights, but he also taught us Arts (which you typically get 1 to 2 questions during the A Level exam).


Being a Science stream student, I always thought that Art is abstract and it was hardly covered in school but Mr Wong was uniquely able to cover both Science and the Arts. It was interesting because he teaches art from a business angle. I think this is largely attributable to his previous banking background and years living in London and Hong Kong. He is able to provide different perspectives on why art is important to a country and the economic and aesthetic benefits that it brings. True indeed, during the A-Level exam, there were 2 questions on the Arts.


Through his GP Tuition Programme he helped me realised the importance of the English Language in whatever career that we venture into, the skills to write and present are crucial to our success.

General FAQ about our English Tuition and General Paper tuition programme


The Rationale Thinking Learning Centre currently offers 'A' Level General Paper tuition, IP Year 3 and 4 English tuition and Upper Secondary English tuition. Find out more about each tuition track under Our Programmes tab.

Many students in Singapore struggle with mastering the Language subjects. The English language is arguably the most important subject in Singapore as it is the most common medium of communication. Furthermore, the daily use of Singapore Colloquial English (Singlish) is exacerbating the problem further. A strong foundation in the English language is vital to acing other subjects such as General Paper, Mathematics, Science, Humanities, etc. and ultimately getting placements in Ivy League Universities. At The Rationale Thinking, we specialise in coaching our students in the English Language and General Paper. Our specially curated curriculum aims to break down the complexity of mastering the English language and General Paper to give our students the confidence to attain their Distinctions.

We pride ourselves in not just enabling our students to score Distinctions for their 'O' Level English Examinations and 'A' Level General Paper. We also believe in moulding the next generation to become Global Thinkers. With our carefully curated inhouse notes, we train and impart our students with skills and knowledge that are not taught in school. Not forgetting to build up a good character to prepare them for their future careers in the world’s leading industries.

All of our tuition classes offered are group tuition. We believe in the cross-fertilisation of ideas while studying for your English Language and General Paper. Unlike Science and Mathematics, the English language and General Paper requires more than just rote learning of formulas. As a group, our students are exposed to varies ideas and opinions. This will ultimately aid them in their 'A' Level General Paper and 'O' Level English examination. Our class sizes are also well controlled to ensure that no student is left out and will leave each class every week with new knowledge.

Mr Edwin Wong coaches his students for both the English tuition and General Paper tuition programmes. He is a well sought-after English language specialist, revolutionary thinker and transformational Teacher. He has helped many students achieve Distinctions in their 'O' Level English Examinations and their 'A' Level General Paper. Many of his students have went on to secure placements in competitive academic courses in local universities or obtained Public Service Commission (Overseas Scholarship) with Ivy-League Universities.

Prior to joining Mr Wong’s English Tuition class at the beginning of June, I had barely scraped a meagre 2.5 GPA. I had difficulty with inference, paraphrasing and had no idea whatsoever of linguistic skills. It was not just comprehension skills which I had trouble with, but I was also at a loss about the structure of expository writing.


Mr Wong, who shows a burning passion for teaching, constantly gives feedback and guidance for me to improve, even going the extra mile to make his own set of notes and practices. Furthermore, he strongly emphasises on using the latest articles from a variety of credible sources which provide his students with ample content, and produces his own model essays. Despite Mr Wong’s lessons being a group tuition, he still ensures that he attends to the needs of each student, and always offers a helping hand to assist any individual in grasping each topic.

During the short time of just 2 months with Mr Wong, not only was I able to pull up my GPA to 4.0. I am thankful to be a part of Mr Wong’s English Tuition and tutelage in helping me to achieve this substantial achievement.

I started attending Mr Wong's English tuition at the end of IP Year 3, in order to prepare myself for the subject most A-level students seem to be afraid of. However, from the first lesson, I found myself being thoroughly immersed in Mr Wong's explanation and analysis of topics crucial to the workings of society today. Through the tuition curriculum, I genuinely found the content intriguing and it became natural for me to broaden my knowledge beyond simply studying for the subject. Furthermore, as language is a skill that requires time and practice to master, my extended time in GP tuition proved beneficial as I was able to build a vocabulary arsenal while sharpening my answering techniques.


To my delight, I was able to apply these skills and come in as 1st in my whole school during my JC1 Mid Year and promo exams, and am continuously working towards achieving higher goals. Thanks Mr Wong!

I joined Mr Wong's Tuition in May this year after my SA1. I was struggling with my English comprehension as the inference questions had pulled my marks down and I only attained 21/40, which is a GPA 2!


A friend of mine reccomended me to join Mr Wong's English Tuition Programme. Through the curriculum, he managed to help me tackle the comprehension questions easily and taught me to use the right keywords and how to answer different types of questions systematically. He also taught us many skills that I had found interesting, like the different methods to react to direct lifting and summary questions. He also taught us how to differentiate the different types of questions accordingly and answer them with ease. 

With alacrity in his lessons and his assiduous spirit in the way he carried out things, I achieved 21/25, a perfect GPA 4 for my CA2 comprehension exam, scoring full marks for all inference questions.
