JC topics available
We have years of experience
For the past 15 years, we have been dedicated to offering top-notch education to junior college (JC) students. Our approach to teaching is rooted in a pedagogically sound curriculum, which we have combined with cutting-edge technology and innovative teaching methodologies. This combination allows us to deliver a comprehensive education that prepares our students for the challenges of the modern world.
Our proven approach
Our classes are taught by very experienced tutors and a significant number of our students have gained admission to top universities both locally and internationally, including NUS, NTU, SMU, as well as Ivy League schools like Stanford, Harvard, Princeton, and Yale. Additionally, our alumni have also gone on to attend prestigious universities such as Oxford, Cambridge, and the London School of Economics.
Every student can EXCEL
We are dedicated to helping students reach their full potential through personalised teaching methods. We believe that every student is unique and our methods are tailored to bring out their individual strengths and abilities. This approach has been highly successful, with many of our students being awarded prestigious scholarships, including the President's Scholarship from the Singapore Public Service Commission.
We understand the challenges faced by JC students
Learners’ Lodge has been providing academic support to students for over 15 years. During this time, we have noticed some common issues among the students who seek our help. These issues have given us insight into the challenges that students face in their academic pursuits and by addressing these issues, we have helped many students achieve their full potential.
Strong in concept, weak in application
Many students have difficulties applying concepts in real-world scenarios. To tackle this, we have developed a comprehensive skills program that emphasises the integration of concepts with practical skills such as critical thinking, interdisciplinary application, and out-of-the-box problem solving. This approach helps students perform better in exams, better prepares them for university and the workforce, and instils in them valuable life skills that will benefit them long after they leave the academic setting.
Transitioning from Sec to JC
Many students, particularly those from ‘O’ Levels, struggle with the shift from a passive to a self-directed learning approach in Junior College. To ease this transition, Learners’ Lodge specialises in preparing students for success in A-levels. Our Bridging and Head Start Programmes provide support and guidance to help students adjust to the more demanding JC academic environment and build the skills needed for academic success.
Pace in school
The compressed school schedule, with too little time given to cover the entire curriculum, leads to a packed syllabus and a time crunch for schools. At Learners’ Lodge, lessons are taught slightly behind schedule to allow students to clarify misunderstandings and improve their understanding and exam performance. This approach helps students keep pace with the school curriculum and succeed despite the time crunch.
The school materials for students vary from JC to JC, but what has been observed is that the notes from school are often not efficient for learning. They can be too dense or not focused, making it difficult for students to understand the material. At Learners’ Lodge, this challenge has been addressed with the development of a unique set of notes. These notes serve as a revision tool, providing thorough explanations of concepts and ideas, and are complemented by concise summaries for easier organisation and exam preparation. This approach helps students improve their ability to learn and succeed.
Balancing academics and social life can be a challenge for JC students. The need to attend multiple tuition centres for different subjects can add to the burden. Learners’ Lodge offers a comprehensive solution. We provide a wide range of JC tuition classes covering most examinable subjects, all at conveniently located branches to save students commuting time. By having lessons at Learners’ Lodge, students can focus on their studies and have more time for a fulfilling social life.
Look at what our students said about us!
I remember first coming in to Learners' Lodge failing one math exam after another. Little did I knew, after one year at Learners' Lodge, I managed to go from an S to an A for A-levels! The tutor was always there, constantly encouraging and guiding me along, offering us his tips and tricks that sure proved useful in the end. I hope more students will be able to benefit from his teaching in the future!!
The Chemistry tutor in Learners' Lodge has really helped me a lot for my chemistry, guiding me with extra tips and tricks for exams, offering us extra help even outside of class.
He was our guiding light through out the stressful period of A-levels and always manages to encourage us through jokes.
He was the key factor in my improvement, helping me achieve A from an initial E and your tips have allowed me to better manage my time in exams.
So thankful that the GP tutor in Learners' Lodge shared his secret killer strategies and even life tips! I am so glad that I left my previous GP tuition, and joined his class. Without him, I probably would not have scored an A for my A-levels. His notes are useful and I love the many resources and notes that he shared with us. Even after graduation, his advice is still useful and important to me.
I am really thankful to Learners' Lodge tutor for improving my biology grade drastically. His lessons are really interactive and helpful. He is also a patient teacher who would try his best to ensure that every student in his class understands the content.
The Physics tutor in Learners' Lodge is extremely pleasant and helpful. He has a unique teaching style driven by his passion for physics which makes his quirky teaching methods easy to follow and absorb without ever feeling bored. He provides us with detailed notes and substantiates it with his own additional knowledge based on the syllabus and it has been of utmost importance in all of my revision.
The Economics tutor in Learners' Lodge helped us view economics as an integral subject that greatly impacts our lives, instead of just an examinable subject. I appreciate the clear and structured manner in which he teaches H2 Econs (e.g. summaries of key concepts and ways of approaching questions), and the pep talks and encouragement before examinations. He certainly played an important role in helping me achieve an A in economics.
