What is growth mindset?
In 2006, the growth mindset is coined by Dr Carol Dweck based on her decade of research work at Stanford University, published in the book, Mindset: The New Psychology of Success.
According to Dr Carol Dweck, individuals may not necessarily be aware of their own mindset, but their mindset can still be discerned based on their behaviours. It is especially evident in their reaction to failure. Fixed-mindset individuals dread failure because it is a negative statement on their basic abilities, while growth mindset individuals do not mind or fear failure as much because they realize their performance can be improved and learning comes from failure. These two mindsets play an important role in all aspects of a person's life. Dweck argues that the growth mindset will allow a person to live a less stressful and more successful life.
How is growth mindset taught in lessons?
In our classroom, we incorporate growth mindset approach into our teaching of Math. Students learn through a structured program developed based on Dr Carol Dweck’s research work that they could “grow their brains”, increase their intellectual abilities and do better.
In short, Mindset first curriculum gets children to focus on the process that leads to learning not only the end result.
What is the class size?
We ensure teaching excellence by capping our class size to 6 (Pri). A minimum number of 3 students is required to start a new class.
Does my child need to purchase additional assessment books/papers?
Our students are not required to purchase any additional resources. Class activities and worksheets are designed by our in-house curriculum team.
Do you offer 1-to-1 tuition service?
We believe that a collaborative inquiry-based learning environment can achieve a more positive learning experience for your child. As such, we do not recommend a 1-to-1 tuition service.
If you think your child needs more extra lessons during the exam revision period, we may be able to arrange it.
Subject to different rates and availability.
Will my child be given homework to do?
We do not believe in drilling or rote learning method. Unless the teacher thinks it is necessary that your child needs more practice, there will be little work to be brought home. All work will be targeted to complete in class.
What should I do if my child has missed a lesson?
Depending on availability, your child can join another class for replacement within the same week. If the replacement class is not available, your child will complete and submit the classwork to the teacher for marking. If time permits, the teacher will go through selective questions during the lesson. In order to reap the full benefits of our programme, we seek your co-operation and understanding to ensure your child attend all lessons.
