Built on Critical Reading and Writing, Cognitus Academy’s English Programme produces strong results and lasting improvement through the Critical Reading and Writing (CRW) Strategy & motivation.

Our Strategy

Using strategies taught to students in the Gifted Education Programme (GEP),
our Primary programme is built upon years of experience teaching,
designing curriculum, marking exams and designing assessment modes in schools.
We can’t wait to share them with you!

Critical Reading and Writing principles used in MOE’s Gifted Education Programme form the basis of Cognitus Academy’s English programmes. Don’t worry. Although these strategies are taught to gifted students, our programmes are DOWN-TO-EARTH techniques that have helped students of all abilities improve and excel.

Does your child find English boring? Here’s why.

The lessons your child has been attending are not pitched according to their level of readiness.
If they are unable to grasp the lesson, forcing them to finish their English assignments demotivates them.
If the lessons are too simple, your child will be bored and unmotivated.

At Cognitus Academy, our programme is crafted to MEET every child’s level of readiness and motivate them to achieve their FULL potential. Through our own passion for the English language, our trained and experienced teachers ignite students’ LOVE and INTEREST in English.

We understand that...

students need to know
‘why’ before they ask the ‘what’ and ‘how’.

Therefore, we teach our young charges to set learning goals study plans and motivate them to work towards their targets. Weekly lessons from newspaper articles also make the language come to life and encourage students to think broadly and critically about local and global issues.
