IP/ O Level English & General Paper tuition


There are many types of art exhibits, so maybe it’s best if we do not generalise. Certainly, some art exhibits should be free.

Large scale exhibits are excellent for drawing in the public. By transforming parts of the neighbourhood into artworks, art becomes more relevant and personal for people. However, the scale of the exhibit means that it also costs a lot. In 2016, the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth expenditure totalled $2 billion. Some of that money should be set aside to fund these large scale events as they inject life and wonder into our communities.

Importantly, the use of public money is quite a contentious issue. Of course, spending taxpayers’ monies on something only a minority benefit from, doesn’t make a lot of sense. That’s why I think that exhibits and events like the M1 Fringe Festival should not be government sponsored. If anything, private companies or individuals should be the ones paying for them, or even charging entrance fees to pay for the exhibit.

This way, there can still be independent voices in the arts community, and the government has less say over what can be displayed. We want to have the door open to diverse views in the arts, and have some autonomy and room for the art community to burgeon/develop.


NO, it should not be free!

Singapore is facing a rapidly ageing population and we need every dollar to train more Doctors And Nurses and to build more hospitals. Our transportation system keeps breaking down frequently and with the recent casualties at Joo Koon MRT station, taxpayers’ money should be used more effectively to rectify the problems (as stated in the Singapore Budget 2017, S$20 billion will be spent over 5 years to double the MRT network in the city-state by 2030, Finance Minister Heng Swee Keat said).

Every Singaporean will be a beneficiary of a world class healthcare system and not every Singaporean will benefit from the art. Therefore, it is only right to say those who want to appreciate art should pay for the full amount!

Singapore is a country with finite resources and the only thing that we have is Human Capital. Therefore, Taxpayers’ money should go into investing in Education.

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.
