I think clowns appeal to people because they are entertaining and funny. Their exaggerated makeup and colourful costumes help to make the performance more dramatised, heightening the humorous factor for the audience. At a cursory glance of the picture here, the man is painting his face, and straight away you can tell that the half with the makeup looks more cheery than the other unpainted half. The radiant smile and bright colours help to make clowns look always happy, and this constant state of happiness/ exuberance: (the quality of being full of energy, excitement, and cheerfulness; ebullience) would rub off onto the audience. Their performance always includes silly antics: (foolish, outrageous, or amusing behavior), which mostly triggers smiles and laughter from the audience. Most of the time, all the audience want to do is to watch and see just how silly the clown can be, because of their flamboyant costumes and their hilarious act. Clowns are able to act as silly as they want because the people performing are heavily disguised with makeup and the rather baggy costume, hence clowns do not have any inhibitions. However, some people do have coulrophobia: (extreme or irrational fear of clowns), or just do not think that clowns are funny at all. This varies from person to person as everyone has different preferences for humour. The performance of the clown is also an important aspect, as should the clown accidentally/ inadvertently (without intention; accidentally) scares the children, it may cause them to detest clowns in the future.

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.

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.
