Approach to excelling in General Paper at the A Levels

1. Nurturing the right attitude

At One.Tuition Place, we believe that cultivating the right attitude and mindset in students is a fundamental aspect in any student’s educational pursuit. To quote Walt Whitman, an American poet and essayist: “Keep your face always toward the sunshine – and shadows will fall behind you”. This is an apposite quote which sums up how important it is for students to always have a positive attitude towards General Paper. While it is commonplace for students to feel that the General Paper at A Levels is difficult to tackle as compared to O Level standard English, our tutors constantly encourage students to believe in themselves and to adopt a pro-active approach in their own learning. Through our tutor’s close mentorship and guidance, our students gradually gain the confidence in their own writing and language ability such that they would be adequately prepared to tackle the exams

2. Honing the necessary skills

With the right attitude, half the battle is won – the other half would require the development of a student’s language/writing skills and to also build up a core content of knowledge pertaining to global events and local news. General Paper lessons conducted at One.Tuition Place are meticulously prepared to incorporate recent global events and local news. Students can also look forward to engaging with the tutor in lively discussions and relevant debates on different issues affecting our world and society. There would also be sufficient practice of prelim papers and A Level standard papers in order to allow students to gain a wide exposure to the range of topics and question types for the different components. Furthermore, critical analysis and useful advice would be given to students at an individual customized level to boost their learning.

3. Going the extra mile

Learning about General Paper does not stop when lessons end. Our tutor is highly committed in answering relevant questions and reviewing student’s writing submissions through e-mail correspondences and SMS/Whatsapp. A one to one individual review session is also conducted for the student upon the completion of his/her school’s term exam (CA, Mid-Term, Promo) in order to help the student identify his/her strengths and weakness and to give the student the opportunity to clarify any doubts he/she may have with the school exam paper and receive valuable advice/insights to be able to excel in the exam.
