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.

Proper Class Flow

Eye Level is a self-directed learning program which encourages students to acquire self-motivation and independence.

1. Diagnostic test and Starting point

After the diagnostic test, the instructor measures the strengths and  weaknesses of the student as well as evaluating the student’s ability. The instructor will determine the child’s starting point, which is where a student can work with ease and confidence.

2. Self-directed learning

Students will follow a self-directed learning method as well as develop independent learning skills in our Eye Level learning centers. Instructors will provide guidance to students as they move throughout their individualized program.

3. Assessment

Before moving on the next level, Eye Level instructor will give a Level Test to evaluate whether the student has achieved mastery.

4. Feedback

Instructors provide consultation and communicate with parents regarding their children’s learning progress on a regular basis.

Reading Fluency vs. Grammar Accuracy. Which is more important?

The debate about which is more important, reading fluency or grammar accuracy, is a long standing one. Such is a chicken or the egg problem, which unfortunately, Critical Thinking Mathematics will not help.

Traditional educators would argue that a child develops its ability to form grammatically correct sentences by imparting technical knowledge such as the recognition and usage of verbs, nouns, punctuations and tenses. On the other side of the fence, the liberal educators would stand by their pedagogy that fluency would help with a child’s understanding of meaning and context.

However, it is truly the case that one method is more superior than another? According a research in cognitive psychology, the brain is divided into different areas. The area that focuses on grammatical processing is known as the Broca’s area, a small part of the left frontal lobe. Its general function includes language comprehension, action recognition and production, and speech-associated gestures, such as using sign languages.

Learning language fluency, however, triggers the whole frontal lobe, which has also been linked to executive functions, such as attentional control, working memory, reasoning and problem-solving.

So, which is truly more important? Perhaps there isn’t a strictly correct answer. Perhaps both arguments are correct. Non-native learners would benefit more with the study of grammar as it taps on a smaller part of the brain. This would progress towards a fuller understanding and comprehension of the language as they develop larger parts of the frontal lobe later. Native learners, on the other hand, benefit by first understanding context and meaning as these help them form meaningful relationships with others, which also develops the self-identity of the child. They would then work towards refining their understanding of the language through the study of grammar. Either way, both go hand-in-hand and are equally critical to the study of a language.

On a side note, scientists have researched and determined that the chicken did come first. Mindblown!

Critical Thinking – Important to Have or Just a Gimmick?

What is Critical Thinking?

Critical thinkers – these are people that our nation wants to nurture, companies want to hire, and parents want their children to become. With the term bounced around so often, it is no wonder that progressive enrichment organisations are starting to adopt “Critical Thinking” as part of their regular programmes.

Often confused with a “CREATIVE thinker”, a critical thinker leverages on experience, observation, reflection and/or communication to derive at a set of heuristics (i.e. a process or method). While the creative thinker aims to derive an original/fresh solution, the process or method of thinking the critical thinker uses is often situational and relevant to the question at hand, and would thus allow the decision maker to derive at a logical solution.

Importance of Critical Thinking

Critical thinking is an important skill to have as the modern world progresses. According to a research by Hong Kong University (HKU), critical thinking is critical (pardon the pun) because:

  1. It is relevant for whichever profession we choose
  2. It allows us to understand information and technology in order to make quick and effective decisions in the global knowledge economy
  3. It ensures that creative solutions are relevant to the problem at hand
  4. It is important for self-evaluation and reflection so that we may live a meaningful and structure life
  5. It is the foundation of science and democracy

So, do we need it?

Short answer – YES! This is especially true in the context of Singapore where we are often thought of as being book smart and not street smart. As such, critical thinking will not only break the notion that the Singapore education system is all about rote learning, it will also allow us to tap on the knowledge that we have learnt and apply it rationally in a variety of settings. This makes us effective individuals and contributors of our society.

Eye Level Philosophy

“I was wondering how my students would enjoy the paintings from a student’s eye level.”

This is a story about a teacher who changed his perspective. A man was appreciating the art at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington DC. As he approached each painting he would kneel down and look up at it. A curious visitor asked him why he was looking at the painting from his knees. He replied, “I am an elementary school teacher and I will bring my students here tomorrow. I was wondering how my students would enjoy the paintings from down here. I am trying to appreciate these paintings from a student’s eye level.”

Eye Level is based on an educational principle where students learn at their own pace. When the instructor understands the learning needs of a student, the teaching are most effective.

Mathematics – A Love – Hate Relationship

How do I prepare my child for Primary-School Maths, especially difficult word problems?

Mathematics is a “love it or hate it” kind of subject. What you need to do is to create a “Maths is Fun” mindset. Try these with your child:

a. Break the complex word problem into smaller components.

b. Use models, coins, objects to help him visualise and understand all the components of the question.

c. Familiarise yourself with the primary school syllabus so that you will know how to help him learn.

Patience, patience, and patience. He may not understand the Maths questions and concept right away, but he needs a lot of encouragement, love and support from you.

Try this out!

“Maths – The Only  Subject That Counts!”

Because Eye Level Works

Eye Level is based on an educational principle where students learn at their own pace. When an instructor understands the learning needs of a student, the teaching are most effective.

Diagnostic Assessment
The diagnostic test will provide insight into the student’s ability and learning needs. It is utilized to determine the best place to start the student in the Eye Level curriculum.

Initial Starting Point
This allows students to build confidence to help ensure future success in proceeding levels.

Self Directing Learning
Students will follow a self-directed learning method and develop independent learning skills in our Eye Level learning centers. Instructors will provide guidance to students as they move throughout their individualized program.

Before a student proceeds to the next level and new skill set, an Eye Level instructor will give the student a level test to evaluate if they have achieved mastery of the current material.

Directors/Instructors provide consultations and communicate with parents regarding their children’s learning progress on a regular basis.

Small Steps to Success

All concepts and skills in the Eye Level program are interrelated. Mastery of basic foundational skills is necessary before advancing to more complex skills, resulting in improvement of a child’s accuracy and speed when completing more complex questions.
