Situational Writing Online Course Curriculum
Here’s what parents have been sharing about us!
“Since attending the lessons, I’ve seen improvements in Thaddeus’ grammar and he has picked up some useful techniques in answering questions.”
“Thaddeus’ writing was not very good at the start. I signed up Thaddeus at Lil’ but Mighty because his sister is already there. I previously received good feedback from my sister so we signed up. Since attending the lessons, I’ve seen improvements in Thaddeus’ grammar and he has picked up some useful techniques in answering questions. What Thaddeus finds interesting and enjoys most are the online games they play in class through Nearpod.”
“Kyran is enjoying the lessons so far. The class size is small so he is able to participate more. He showed me worksheets from his last lesson about air ships, something about locomotive transportation, and he told me more about it. I think that’s what he enjoys.
My sister saw Lil’ but Mighty’s website and so far the reviews were good so I decided to sign Kyran up for a trial class. And from the class, Kyran is the one who said he wanted to continue.
I spoke to Teacher Nuri and she did mention that Kyran is quite participative in class. We decided to sign up and see if the enrichment classes help him with his English.
One month after enrolling Kyran, I have noticed that he has learned to write compositions and use more interesting words.”
“Kai Jin says classes are fun. I am quite particular but because my sister-in-law also recommended Lil’ but Mighty to me, that was also another push point.
I signed up Kai Jin at Lil’ but Mighty through a recommendation. Kai Jin’s classmate wanted to go so we decided to give it a try. So far it has been good; Kai Jin says classes are fun. I am quite particular but because my sister-in-law also recommended Lil’ but Mighty to me, that was also another push point. She was telling me Lil’ but Mighty is pretty good and that she knows a very good teacher who teaches at the Bukit Timah branch. Although we are attending the Hougang branch, this was still one of the factors that made me try Lil’ but Mighty.”
“We told him that classes are only once a week but after his first lesson, he said he saw the schedule placed on the glass door at the centre and told us: “Actually there is class tomorrow, can I come over tomorrow?”
“Yan Zhe’s response to the teacher is positive and he’s very keen to attend the tuition class. We told him that classes are only once a week but after his first lesson, he said he saw the schedule placed on the glass door at the centre and told us: “Actually there is class tomorrow, can I come over tomorrow?”
We told him no, this is only once a week.
At the beginning, when we told him that he is going for tuition classes, he refused. This is the first time we are sending him and we are very glad that he is looking forward to attending the next class.”
“She said her teacher guided her throughout the lesson and played games in between. She even taught us a game at home and we played with her.”
“We saw an advertisement by Lil’ but Mighty and in the video, Mrs Chew shared some points about the LBM approach that piqued our interest. We decided to book a trial class for Lydia to let her experience it. She enjoyed the trial class and immediately said she wanted to continue with the classes. “This is my work,” she said as she showed us how and what she learned in class. She said her teacher guided her throughout the lesson and played games in between. She even taught us a game at home and we played with her. Seeing Lydia enjoy the lesson, we have decided to sign up for the P2 classes at Lil’ but Mighty.”
“Their structured approach to the various components of PSLE English have benefited her, as well as their many practical tips.”
“My son enjoys his lessons very much and his English grade has improved tremendously, from 75 in SA1 to 83 in SA2!”
“As I watch my child gain more clarity and achieve her personal best in the subject to date, I look forward to more growth in her upcoming journey with Lil’ but Mighty.”
“My daugher even taught me using ice cream sticks to learn subject verb agreements!… Highly recommend LBM to all who need an English specialist!”
