Formerly from Temasek Secondary School

Yuxin's transformation under The Rationale Thinking Learning Centre


When I first came to The Rationale Thinking Learning Centre in the middle of Sec 3, my English grade was C5. Back then, my command of English was really poor. Furthermore, I did not know how to write argumentative essays as I did not know any real-world examples and was very bad at explaining my points.

They immediately advised me on how to improve. For example, reading news articles that was given out during class, and listening to the BBC world service when I commute has helped me to be more aware of current affairs. My writing style also improved a lot as they taught me to use critical thinking and take me step-by-step through the thinking process. The methods of teaching English is very logical and has helped me a lot.

Mr Wong does not just care about academics, he is also very supportive. He is always concerned for the welfare of his students. Mr Wong also never stops pushing me to aim high. Knowing that I wanted to major in Computer Engineering, he always encourages me to aim high and work towards a PSC scholarship and study at MIT.

My journey with The Rationale Thinking Learning Centre has been inspirational and Mr Wong always motivates me to do well in my studies. Before I met him, I was a playful student and did not care about my studies. But he encouraged me to work hard, so I studied hard and I am now a student at Raffles Institution.

Melissa Guat

Tanjong Katong Secondary School

Melissa joined TRT since Secondary 1 and is now a Humanities Scholar at VJC


I first joined The Rationale Thinking Learning Centre English tuition when I was in my first year in secondary school, and my improvement in English has been evident ever since.

Through the progressive teaching methodologies and not to mention, the engaging English tuition classes, I could always gain an edge over most of my classmates in terms of the command of the language. This “edge” that I have gained has proven to be effective when I came in 2nd in the whole school.

The Rationale Thinking is extremely patient in their teaching and they never fail to adopt an inclusive culture as they frequently ask for our opinions on ways to better cater to our needs.

Besides their aptitude for teaching, an added bonus is the notes that are painstakingly prepared for us every week - which include Linguistics for comprehension, essay writing and Oral. With due credit to their efficacious teaching, I attained an A1 for my final English paper. I truly believe that if a student comes to The Rationale Thinking Learning Centre for English tuition as early as in Sec. 1, like myself, he/she stands a good chance to excel in his/her English! Now, I am in Victoria Junior College and have been awarded the MOE Humanities Scholarship.

Ryan Wielson Lim

went on to study at Temasek Junior College

Ryan took advice from The Rationale Thinking Learning Centre and attained an A from E8 within 5 months


When I joined The Rationale Thinking Learning Centre for English tuition, I was only getting an E8 for my SA1 English. I was very worried that not doing well in English would affect my chances of going to a JC.

Prior to attending The Rationale Thinking Learning Centre English tuition programme, my grammar and writing skills were very weak and I could only write argumentative or expository essays. Sometimes I was able to do well while other times I failed. They reviewed my papers and immediately came up with a step-by-step strategy to do well for the final exam and that was to focus on writing Hybrid essays, which is a combination of “Descriptive” and “Reflective” components. I had never done Hybrid essays before and did not take English Literature at Sec 4. Initially, I was not sure if I would be able to write descriptive essays but they convinced me to try it out and with their in-house model essays and notes, I attempted the Hybrid essay question during my O Level and achieved an A2 grade!

The Rationale Thinking Learning Centre English tuition curriculum provides their students with a lot of notes on comprehension Linguistic Skills. These notes definitely helped me to understand more about how to identify the type of comprehension questions and has allowed me to be able to answer the question correctly.

Most of us know that when our foundation is weak, it actually takes a long time and effort to correct the problems but I must say that The Rationale Thinking Learning Centre is very effective in rectifying my problems and their teaching style is very dynamic. Within 5 months, I actually jumped from E8 to A2!

Kaelyn Lim

Within 5 months, Kaelyn jumped from a B4 to an A1 and came in top of her cohort. She is now pursuing Psychology at one of the top local polytechnics


I enrolled for The Rationale Thinking Learning Centre English tuition in June after getting a B4 grade for English in my mid-year exam. I can still vividly remember how pleasantly surprised I was when I attended the first lesson. Unlike other English tuition classes that I previously attended, there is a distinct difference between The Rationale Thinking Learning Centre and the other tuition centres.

They made sure that all of us understood what was taught and when we were still unsure, they will patiently answer any of our queries. They make sure that we are aware of the relevant news articles we can use to build the content of our essays and equip us with A1 quality essays that were written in-house.

The Rationale Thinking Learning Centre is by far the best tuition centre that I have attended as they are very caring, inspiring, diligent and meticulous who only have their students' best interest at heart and I feel privileged to be taught by them.

Winston Ong

Winston improved from a C5 to an A1 within 3 months


The short journey I had with The Rationale Thinking Learning Centre of 3 months was a really phenomenal one. They were very inspiring and impart their knowledge to us as students, and personally, lit a fire in me. In their English tuition class, they provide comprehensive coverage of real-life events and their emphasis on vocabulary has enabled me to drastically improve my linguistic skills.

The Rationale Thinking Learning Centre English tuition classes are never mundane as they encourage the students to enunciate their views and questions. Their notes are all well prepared scrupulously by themselves and they never fail to include occasional tests to ingrain our newfound knowledge of vocabulary, enabling us to utilise it in the examination hall.

Their concept of moulding their students into global thinkers, with unique insights into global happenings has allowed me to grasp an A1 in my final English examination after getting a C5 in my SA1. I cherish the humbling opportunity I had to learn with one of the most passionate and caring tuition centres, and I cannot be more thankful to have come under their tutelage.

Joshua Teo

In a short span of 7 months, Joshua jumped from a C5 to an A1 for his English exam and came in Top 20 of his cohort


I first joined The Rationale Thinking Learning Centre English tuition in late March of my final year in secondary school. I was struggling with the monthly English common tests, frequently obtaining only a C5 or a C6 grade. The first day I stepped into the tuition class was like enlightenment. They helped me to understand what I had been doing wrong the entire time. The meticulous focus on global issues, critical thinking and current affairs, topics that neither my teachers nor previous tutors ever taught, was the key to me excelling whilst writing Argumentative or Discursive essays.

The Rationale Thinking Learning Centre English tuition places emphasis on attention-grabbing vocabulary and adjectives which assisted me during my final English examination where I tackled a descriptive essay, a risky decision on my part as I seldom wrote those type of essays. But when I received my results, I knew it was worth it. The skills and knowledge they provided me with were not only useful for English but also gave me an advantage for subjects like History, Social studies and Geography.

The Rationale Thinking Learning Centre has helped me tremendously as I improved from a C5 to an A1 in the short span of 7 months. If it were not for them, I doubt I would ever come this close.

General FAQ about our IP English Tuition and GP tuition programme


The Rationale Thinking Learning Centre currently offers you two tuition programmes - IP Year 3 and 4 English tuition and the 'A' Level General Paper tuition and. 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 our lingua franca. Furthermore, the daily use of Singapore Colloquial English (commonly known as Singlish) is exacerbating this problem further. A strong foundation in the English language is vital to acing other subjects such as General Paper, Humanities, Mathematics, Science, etc. and ultimately getting coveted placements in Ivy League Universities. At The Rationale Thinking Learning Centre, 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 IP English Examinations and the 'A' Level General Paper, but we also believe in moulding the next generation to become Global Thinkers. With our carefully curated inhouse notes and research, we train and impart our students with the 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.

Both our IP English and General Paper tuition classes offered are group tuition. We firmly believe in the cross-fertilisation of ideas while studying for the language subjects. 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 various ideas, opinions and perspectives. While we aim to provide a wider view of the language subject, we also refine the curriculum to suit our student needs, rectifying their weaker aspects. This will ultimately aid them in their IP English and 'A' Level General Paper examinations. 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 IP 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 IP 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.
