Frequently asked questions
How is IQ different from other tuition centres?
IQ provides a combination of subjects that are the future-proof building blocks of any ambition and career: English, Math, and Coding. All subjects are taught in English that actively engages children – making learning an enjoyable process. The focus is on knowledge acquisition through concept mastery than rote learning, while keeping a focus on children’s grades in school.
Our learning space, free to any student enrolled at IQ, provides learners a conducive space for homework, revision, and project preparation with the support of a dedicated teacher. The learning space is part of our methodology, providing a nurturing environment for learners to further practice their skills acquired through our lessons.
How does IQ help improve the grades of my child in school?
IQ works collaboratively with parents to monitor student grades. We diagnose and pinpoint the challenge areas of every individual student. This data is applied by our teachers to customise effective learning strategies and lessons. It is also shared with our learning space teachers to provide additional support to students who require reinforcements to gain mastery of the topics.
At IQ we aim to develop students' capabilities with tangible results. If we are unable to improve the grades of children for two consecutive semesters in English and/or Math, we proactively reach out to conference with respective parents to decide if their children can benefit from and with IQ Education.

How are lessons structured?
Each 60-minute lesson starts with a pre-activity, just five minutes before class. The pre-activity reviews the last lesson and triggers pupils' background knowledge for the lesson, engaging them while preparing them to learn the moment they arrive.
How do the teachers assess if my child has mastered the learning concepts?
All our teachers are equipped with lesson plans that are crafted with clear lesson objectives. At the end of every lesson, after a series of integrated activities, your child’s teacher will be able to assess whether the students have mastered the concepts. This assessment is recorded and communicated to parents on a monthly basis and when requested by parents.
What if my child needs more time to master a concept?
Are lessons aligned to school syllabus?
Our lessons are designed ahead of the school syllabus because we believe in scaffolding their learning where learners are better equipped to learn when given a head start in unlocking their potential.
Will students be given homework?
We encourage self-directed and self-assessed learning. Students are also encouraged to use the learning space to practice their school work. We believe that at home, students should be engaged with quality family time and not homework late into the evenings.
