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.

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.

Upper Secondary English Tuition Programme Sample Essay

O Level English Sample Essay

It seemed as if a total destruction of Nature had taken place. I pictured the scene at the height of its most dreadful fury: the roaring of the sea and wind—smell of dead bodies proliferating/ flying about in the air—the prodigious earthquake with repeated aftershocks—the crash of the falling houses—and the ear-piercing shrieks of the distressed. What horror and devastation–the effect of Nature’s violent outburst profoundly tragic!

DESCRIBE THE AFTERMATH SCENE OF AN EARTHQUAKE AT LOMBOK

A great many buildings throughout were levelled to the ground, the rest very much shattered—several people killed and untold numbers utterly ruined—whole families running about the streets searching in vain for a place of shelter—the sick exposed to the keenness of water and air—without a bed to lie upon—or dry clothes to their bodies. In a word – ‘Misery’ in all its most piteous shapes spread over the whole face of the Indonesian island of Lombok.



We were a small group dispatched from our school, sent to provide humanitarian disaster relief: tents, hot food and clean drinking water and dry clothes. Queues materialised even as we set up shop, lines of children and families and men and women, herded by enthusiastic youth assuming the role of traffic controllers. The people’s dishevelled appearance belied their resilient nature, for it seemed even in crisis and disaster they had held on to their dignity, maintaining extraordinary composure. DESCRIBE HOW MOST PEOPLE WAITED PATIENTLY, WHILST SOME CUT THE QUEUE TO GET FOOD? Most waited without complaint, tending to the children and helping those who tended to them, even if they were injured or fainting from hunger.  Of course, there were people who resented the long lines, some who basely/ unreasonably demanded to be served before the rest, yet incredibly, the crowd moved to let them pass. I was amazed at how even in the lowliest of situations, graciousness prevailed.



WHAT DO YOU UNDERSTAND BY CHARITY? For charity confounds the individualist. Someone who only looks out for himself, cannot comprehend aiding another person without receiving recompense or reward. Charity is only understood by people who can perceive the bigger picture, by men and women of strongest character who bestow compassion and kindness unceasing. They know that to clothe the naked and  to feed the starving, even if they had to give the shirt off their back or their daily bread–to help those who cannot help themselves, is to be moral and just. The greater the need, the more will be given, even to a fault. Calamity might tear apart their homes, but charity and goodwill are sufficient to repair what was lost, even uniting people in one heart and mind.



We left after ten days, having exhausted our stores and restored a semblance of order. What cynicism I had about the inherent selfishness of humanity had been erased. I understood charity. To me, charity means collectivism over individualism, symbiosis over parasitism. Charity means help, freely given, no matter its quantity or recipients. To give charity is to be human.
