“Monsters exist, but they are too few in number to be truly dangerous. More dangerous are the common men, the functionaries ready to believe and to act without asking questions” ~ Primo Levi
The best way to learn in life (not just in schools) is to ASK QUESTIONS. Not just attend lectures & classes and copy down every single English words by the lecturers/teachers. Students need to listen attentively and ask questions when in doubt.
At Winners, we practice this method of educating our students and always encourage them to “Clarify Whenever in Doubt”, that “Every Question is a Good Question” & “there’s Always Something Useful to Learn”.
We also encourage our students to start asking questions in their schools for every subjects cos this is the only effective way of learning.
Personally, we have seen so many students who improved from a F9/E8/D7 grades to A1/A2/B3 grades for Chemistry & Maths in very very short period of between 2-6 months. It is POSSIBLE for students to truly Unleash Their Potential, if they start to ASK.
For both O-Levels (as well as IGCSE) and A-Levels (including IB & IP), we provide platforms for our students such as 1) email support 2) SMS support, in order for them to clarify their doubts ASAP. Frankly, it’s really hardwork on our side but we believe it’s worth it cos it will build their confidence & momentum in clarifying doubts.
In the picture, it’s our current Sec 4 student clarifying her doubt for a Chemistry concept/question via WhatsApp messaging. She has improved so much in Sec 3 last year and we are sure she will do well for O-Level this year, if she continue to stay consistent and clarify her doubts asap. Whoosh!
I believe many of our graduate students (some in university while others already started their working career) will appreciate this very important learning tool in life.
If you happen to read this post, do remember: KEEP ASKING!

Enjoy the learning journey everyone!
