The teacher is very good and she is very caring in coaching the kids. The notes written by the teacher are very clear. She provides encouragement and guidance to the students. My son gained lots of confidence in writing and he is always looking forward to the class.

The writing programme helped my child to improve her confidence in writing and creativity.  I was surprised to find out that they created a booklet of the children’s stories and can’t wait to see how it looks like!
