Professional Tutors
At KRTC, we take pride on our knowledgeable tutors, with extensive prior experience and expertise. We supplement what is on offer through regular schools and seek to elevate the students’ confidence and skill levels. Our tutors provide education for primary, secondary school and junior college students in English, elementary and upper secondary maths, science subjects such as chemistry, physics, biology and Chinese among others. KRTC’s tutors come from various backgrounds and subject specialties – but they have one aspect in common, which is to see your child thrive in academics while acquiring a desire to learn.

Programmes Offered

Primary 1 Preparatory Class (English & Maths)
Gears up students to be prepared for their primary schooling years which follows the M.O.E’s guidelines.

Phonics (for 3-18 years old)
When children learn the sounds that letters and groups of letters make, they can decode words they have not encountered before in their reading, which allows children to learn new words independently.

It gives children a foundation for learning new words, which a foundation in phonics can also help children learn parts of words they can remember when they encounter new words they have never seen before, which makes learning to read much easier.

One final benefit of learning phonics is that it ultimately helps children learn to write by using written lessons and activities to help children master both reading and writing skills. Children also tend to develop their spelling skills as they learn which letters or combinations of letters create sounds in words they write.

Abacus & Arithmetic (for 5-12 years old)
Your child will be trained to master the movement of the abacus’ beads and eventually learn to understand abstractions by visualizing the beads in their minds. The activities done during the program will train the students to calculate math problems mentally without the use of the abacus instrument.

Arts & Craft (for 5-17 years old)

Chinese (for 5-12 years old)
Taking Chinese language lessons and mastering the language opens doors to nearly one-fifth of the world’s population. Right now in the world, Chinese is language and cultural force for the 21st century. So it follows that learning Chinese just makes sense because it will change your life.

Speech & Drama (for 3-6 years old)
