This month, we share with you blogger mummy, Cherry’s experience with Eye Level Singapore 🙂
Here is an excerpt from her blog, Sweet Memoirs, on how Eye Level has developed the confidence of her boy who is currently in K2:
“I have never seen G doing some number problems before ever so confidently and enthusiastically until he started his lessons at Eye Level. Every time we come back from his lessons, he would ask me to set the timer for him while he works on his assignment to be submitted on the next session. “Please turn on the timer for me, mom. See how I can finish it very fast”, he’d proudly declare.”

“How many parents here believe that they have a complete understanding of how their child feels and behaves?”
With that, Eye Level Singapore began its very first run of our Eye Level Training Academy (ELTA) workshops, specifically tailored for parents to learn more about their children’s development. Held on 19th May 2017 at 7:30pm in TKP Conference Hall, the theme for our first workshop was entitled, “Maximize Your Child’s Development”.
Before the workshop, comprehensive notes were placed on the desks for our valued parents.
Eye Level parents were greeted by Mr Sheng Weilun, who has had 7 years of experience in the Children Enrichment Industry.
During the first half of our workshop, Mr Sheng introduced our parents to the understanding of their own children through basic developmental theories, and coached them on how to apply those theories in the real world.
Halfway through the session, parents were given a break to enjoy the sumptuous dinner and had the opportunity to network with the fellow Eye Level Parents to share personal insights and experiences of their own. Some of the parents also had the chance to speak to Mr Sheng, and other HQ Staff.
In the second half of the workshop, Mr Sheng went through tips on how to develop and cultivate self-directed learning habits – A Ministry of Education (MOE) 21st Century Competency for all school-going children.
Towards the end of the workshop, Mr Sheng held a discussion with parents, on how parents and teachers should work together to maximise the development of their children. Various exercises were also incorporated into the workshop, to allow parents to put in practice what they’ve learnt immediately. These activities challenged the parents to brainstorm and reflect on various aspects of their children’s development.
The success of this event is accentuated by the feedback we have received. 100% of the parents who attended agreed that the content presented was relevant to their role as parents, and that Mr Sheng was very helpful in bringing across pointers linked to their own children’s development. On top of that, majority said that they would be very willing to attend future ELTA parenting workshops.
Eye Level Singapore holds the ELTA parenting workshops on a monthly basis. You may visit our website (http://elta.myeyelevel.net) for our next workshop updates. We look forward to seeing you!
Eye Level focuses on building each student’s foundation in Math and English, as well as helping students gain Self Confidence, Interest in Learning, and develops a child’s Critical Thinking and Analytical skills.
Eye Level programmes are inter-related. Only through the mastery of basic foundational skills can the student then advance to more complex skills. This improves the child’s speed and accuracy when dealing with complex questions. It will also develop his Self-Directed Learning ability, independence as we as time management.
Renri (Chinese:人日, literally Human Day) refers specially to the 7th day of zhengyue (正月, the first month in the Chinese calendar). According to Chinese customs, renri was the day human beings were created. It is celebrated not only in China, but also other regions influenced by Chinese culture.
Nowadays in zhengyue, renri is celebrated as part of the Chinese New Year. Chinese people prepare lucky food in the new year, where “Seven-vegetable soup” (七菜羹), “Seven-vegetable congee” (七菜粥) and “Jidi congee” (及第粥) are specially prepared for renri. The Malaysian and Singaporean Chinese use “Seven-colour sliced fish” (七彩魚生) instead of “Seven-vegetable soup”.
The Eye Level Awards Ceremony (ELAC) 2017 celebrates the achievement of our students who have performed well at the recent Eye Level Math Olympiad, as well as the Illustration and Writing competitions.
