Finding a learning method that suits you best


Every child is different and unique
Albert Einstein once said “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”

Every child is born and raised differently. Their learning capacity, pace and needs differs from one and another. If that is so, a huge class size that generalizes by grades would only cater to a select and few. An academic exam which determines a child’s placement and self-worth would thus be unfair.

However, this is the glaring reality in today’s education system.

A child should learn according to his own pace and a small classroom size allows educators to individually track performance in a more engaging manner. With the appropriate guidance, a push in the right direction does not necessarily equate to a shove. In fact, it might just be the thing your child needs! Read on further to find out which type of learner your child is.
