Live Online Lessons

There is only 1 schedule for the course.

If your child is not available during the lesson time, they may watch the recordings at their own time.

While watching or after watching the recordings, your child may make use of the Personalised Q&A support to clarify any doubts.

Actually, unknown to most parents, students usually only ask for repetition of explanation during lessons (both online and in-person), which can be easily done by replaying any part of the recording.

It is not uncommon that students are not able to understand all explanations completely by listening to them only once.

Yes, it is not a problem at all, as your child may simply watch the recording at their own time.

There is no attendance-taking for the lessons.

If your child is not able to attend some lessons, they may watch the recordings at their own time.

While watching or after watching the recordings, your child may make use of the Personalised Q&A support to clarify any doubts.

The lessons are not conducted using Zoom.

Your child is to attend the lessons using any web browser, preferably Chrome browser, and on a large-screen device.

Your child can use the private Q&A text box to respond to the coach’s guiding questions or ask the coach any questions.

Your child’s text messages can only be seen by the coach but not by other students.

There is no need for your child to turn on any camera or microphone.

The number of students does not affect your child’s learning experience since students are not able to see one another, or other messages, so your child will not be distracted by other students in the lessons.

The recording of each live lesson will be released within 24 hours of its completion.

All recordings can be accessed from the time of release to the end of the course.

While any modern day computing device with a reliable internet access can be used to attend the live lessons, we strongly recommend you to use a device with a large-screen device and a dedicated keyboard that your child can type conveniently on.

Attending on mobile phones is possible, but some of the texts on-screen may appear too small at times, and it may not be as convenient to type your responses or questions.

Your child may enter the virtual classroom at any time when the lesson is live.

However, we highly recommend your child to get ready with a large-screen device about 10 minutes before the start time, just in case of some unexpected technical issue.

Handouts & Answers

Marking service is not included in any of the programmes, so there is no need to submit any completed worksheets.

Your child is to check their completed work using the answers provided in the online course.

This self-marking process is actually beneficial to your child in many ways, such as

  • Greater self-awareness:
    Self-marking helps your child to become more aware of their strengths and weaknesses, which can help them to improve their performance.
  • Increased motivation:
    Self-marking can be motivating for your child as it allows them to see the progress they are making and feel a sense of accomplishment.
  • Greater attention to detail:
    Self-marking encourages your child to pay closer attention to the details of the problems they are solving, which can help them to improve their accuracy and precision.
  • Increased autonomy:
    By marking their own homework, your child is able to take more ownership of their learning and become more independent in their studies.

In fact, some parents had switched over from other online courses with automated marking because they realised that their children could learn so much better with the self-marking process.

No, all the handouts are only available in downloadable PDFs for self-printing, so there will be no delivery for them.

The handouts will be available for download from 19 Jan 2024.

Q&A Support

The Personalised Q&A Support is built right inside the online course site. It is mobile-friendly, so you can simply use your mobile device to snap a photo of the question (and your attempt) that you want to seek help for, and post it.

The questions posted inside the course site will have our top priority to have them answered, so you need not post in the free Facebook groups.

Please understand that our WhatsApp number is only for general enquiries and technical support, but not for answering questions related to academic practice.

Your child can start posting questions under Q&A support right after your successful sign up.

Yes, your child may seek help on questions within the syllabus from any source, including homework from school, or even other tuition.

Our goal is to help your child master the subject, so it does not matter where the questions come from.

Questions should be specific. Provide details about the particular concept or area you are struggling with. This helps us address your needs more effectively.

Examples of questions that are allowed:
✔ Why is this not a relevant content point?
✔ Why am I awarded only 1 mark for this question even though I gave 2 points?

Examples of questions that are NOT allowed:
✘ Mark this summary question for me.
✘ Did I get all the content points in this summary?

For questions about the materials from the course, the aim is for them to be answered within 24 hours.

For questions about materials from other sources, it may take more than 24 hours for them to be answered.

Questions posted will be answered by the expert English coaches of Learning Gems Tuition.

An email notification with a direct link to the response will be sent for each response to a question.

You may consider setting the email notifications to “Immediate” under the course preferences setting.

For the collective benefit of peer learning and sharing, all questions and responses will be visible to every student in the course.

Parents and students love this feature because they can then learn more from the large variety of questions posted.

We would also like our students to realise that learning as a community is more effective and enjoyable than learning in isolation.

General

N-Level students will also benefit from the course, but do note that there will be variations in the formats of the questions as well as the complexities of the skills involved. The texts used in this course will also follow the O Level standard.

Yes. While Sec 3 students may initially find the material challenging, this course provides an excellent head start, allowing them to familiarise themselves with the standard and rigour of O Level questions ahead of their peers.

There is no (free) trial of the course.

There will be no refund for all payments that have been charged to your credit card.

The last day of access to all learning resources will be 31 Mar 2024.

There is absolutely no need for your child’s photo or video to be shown at any part of the course.

It is not necessary to upload a profile photo for the course account. If one is uploaded, it must be one that is acceptable by our societal norms. Any offensive image used as a profile photo will be removed without warning.

As for your child’s name, you are free to use any name, as long as it is one that is acceptable by our societal norms. Any offensive names/words will be amended without warning.

For technical support, please send us a message via WhatsApp at 87955534 (https://wa.me/6587955534).

Our co-founders, Coach Kai Meng and Coach Junhong, will attend to your issue as soon as practical.

By enrolling in our course, you acknowledge the dedication and effort we’ve put into creating our learning resources.

We kindly ask that all materials provided – be it on the course site, downloaded PDFs, or printed worksheets – be solely used for your own child(ren)’s learning journey. These materials have been specially crafted for each enrolled student, and we trust in your respect for our work by not distributing them beyond your family.

Should this trust be compromised, we may need to take necessary steps to protect our content and intellectual property.

Thank you for understanding and for supporting our commitment to high-quality education!
