Improve Your English Composition Writing!
Is your child struggling with composition writing? Join the Writing Academy today to boost his/her composition writing skills! Students from more than 50 primary schools in Singapore have benefitted from this course.
Amanda has been taking this online course for the past 20 months. I find the tips and feedback extremely helpful. She used to dread writing compositions. The course has transformed her into a confident and creative writer. She really enjoys writing now! Her EL teacher has been showing her compositions as model examples to her class and that further boosts her confidence in writing. Thank you!

ABOUT THE WRITING ACADEMY
At the Writing Academy, students develop composition writing skills and learn writing techniques that they can apply in their compositions. Our specially designed writing curriculum consists of weekly video lessons and assignments to boost students’ composition writing skills.

HOW IT WORKS
*Please read this carefully before enrolling.
The Writing Academy is an online course that is suitable for students who want to learn how to write the new PSLE format compositions.
It is recommended for students from Primary 4 onwards, who are writing the new PSLE format compositions in school.
If your child is writing the 4-picture composition format,
he or she can join the Junior Writing Academy HERE.
Once you are enrolled, you will have instant access to the first month of video lessons and assignments (total of 4 lessons). Thereafter, four brand new video lessons and assignments will be made available subsequently each month.
Students can complete one lesson per week or four lessons per month.
If your child is taking PSLE this year and wish to have access to ALL the modules in the Writing Academy, contact us here.
To make the most of the Writing Academy online course, follow these suggested steps:
* Watch the video lessons.
* Download and print out the assignments.
* Complete the assignments.
* Scan (with a camera phone or scanner) and save completed assignments in PDF or type assignments in MS WORD.
* Upload completed assignment for submission.
* Assignments will be marked by our Writing Coaches, who are ex-MOE teachers, and returned to you via email within 5 working days.
* Once the marked assignment is received, your child can write a Draft 2 based on the comments and suggestions for improvement.
* Submit the improved Draft 2 and our experienced Writing Coaches will mark the Draft 2 too!
