How is On-demand Coaching done?

 

On-demand Coaching for Writing


Mrs Chua reads and annotates each writing piece sent via email. Each writing effort will be returned with a full report based on the elements of CRT for Content, the unique formula that Mrs Chua uses to teach writing at EnglishWise Academy and the elements of LO for Language and Organisation.

Content, Language and Organisation are the key features in the mark scheme for the assessment of Writing in the PSLE Paper.

In-depth feedback will be given on the following elements of CRTLO.
