My Approach to Private Tuition

The Singapore government and various Members of Parliament have voiced concerns about private tuition. Many have highlighted the stresses and pressures students are facing at school and have wondered if we are pushing our students too hard.

I believe that having private tuition is a personal choice that the student and parent must decide on their own. My students have benefited from private (one to one) home tuition. They have gained confidence tackling the difficult concepts presented to them, and have benefited from the personalized attention that one to one tuition provides.

At school or at tuition centres, it is difficult to give each and every student such individualized, personal attention. That is where home tutors like myself come in. I strongly believe that well-qualified tutors like myself have a role to play in helping students strengthen their academic foundations and achieve better grades.

My aim is to make the learning experience a pleasant and enriching experience for all my students.

Ministry of Education again considering Bishan interim site for new JC

27 May 2015

The Ministry of Education (MOE) has said that it is (once again) considering a site in Bishan as an interim campus for students from Catholic High, CHIJ St Nicholas Girls’ and Singapore Chinese Girls’ schools affected by the delay in the building of a new junior college (JC) that was supposed to take them in.

Parents had complained that the former Raffles Junior College (RJC) campus in Mount Sinai, which was chosen after the original interim site in Bishan fell through, was too far away. Hence, the MOE is now again reviewing options for holding sites that they had previously considered and that are closer to the Bishan area.

The new JC, which will start taking in its first batch of students in 2017, is being set up to accommodate mostly Integrated Programme (IP) students graduating from the three secondary schools – Catholic High, CHIJ St Nicholas Girls’ and SCGS.

The delay in constructing the new campus that is to be ultimately located at Sin Ming Avenue and Marymount Road is due to the construction of the Cross Island MRT Line.

SMU appoints first female university provost Professor Lily Kong

25 May 2015

The Singapore Management University (SMU) has appointed Professor Lily Kong, currently the vice-provost of academic personnel at the National University of Singapore (NUS), as its new provost.

Prof Kong, 50, will officially join SMU in September. The appointment makes her the first female university provost here.

Prof Kong feels she can make a contribution in terms of research, insight, and impact on society and community, as well as in terms of shaping the educational programmes for the benefit of the graduates and for Singapore.

P1 registration: Child must live at declared address for at least 30 months

25 May 2015

Children who have gained priority admission to primary schools under the home-school distance priority scheme will be required to live at the address for at least 30 months from the start of the Primary 1 registration exercise on July 2.

The ministry said that there are cases where families are unable to remain at the registered address for the entire duration of their children’s primary school studies. Even so, a child who gains priority admission into school by distance must still abide by the new rule, otherwise, MOE reserves the right to transfer the child to another school.

Families which have bought a yet-to-be completed property and plan to move in after it is completed, are also required to live at the new address for at least 30 months starting from the time the family moves into the property. “For example, if the child registers in 2015 and only moves into the new address in July 2017, the 30 months stay period starts from July 2017,” MOE said on its website.

Mathematician John Nash, who inspired Oscar-winning film A Beautiful Mind, has died


Dr. John F. Nash Jr., a Nobel Prize-winning mathematician who revolutionized the mathematical field of game theory, and whose descent into and recovery from mental illness inspired the film “A Beautiful Mind,” died in an accident while riding in a taxicab on the New Jersey Turnpike on May 23. He was 86. His wife, Alicia, 82, also died.

Born in Bluefield, West Virginia, Nash first studied in Pittsburgh before moving to Princeton. His recommendation letter contained just one line: “This man is a genius.”

In 1994, Dr. Nash received the Nobel Prize in economics. More than four decades earlier, as a Princeton University graduate student, he had produced a 27-page thesis on game theory — in essence, the applied mathematical study of decision-making in situations of conflict — that would become one of the most celebrated works in the field. Even this week, Nash received the Abel Prize, another top honour in the field of mathematics.

Nash married Alicia Larde in 1957, but he developed severe schizophrenia soon after, and Alicia had him committed for psychiatric care several times. The couple divorced in 1962.
