Feedback from past clients have been very positive and we strive to continue this high level of quality service.

 


 

 

Dear Sir/Madam,


My son was helped and taught at DAS for a period of almost two years and was fortunate enough to have Miss Gladys as his teacher. We were recommended DAS at Chinatown as my son was having problems pronouncing certain words and as a result it was effecting his spelling at school. Miss Gladys over the course of his time at DAS considerably helped our son. She formed a great relationship with him over his time there. When we decided that she had helped him overcome his difficultly and finished his courses and we stopped the lessons and he was very sad as were we.

We highly recommend Miss Gladys.

Best regards

Dear Sir/Madame,

O* was referred to DAS Spring 2013, and has had weekly tutoring sessions with Mrs Shilpa since then. She has been of tremendous help for him first and foremost with reading and writing abilities, but later also with grasping the basic concepts in math. He has a very trusting relationship with her and finds their sessions educational and fun! He has come so far with the help from her and we are very grateful for being assigned her as his tutor.

Looking forward to continue working with her for as long as necessary!

If you need further information, please do not hesitate to contact me!

Best regards

Dear All

Our heartfelt thanks to each of you for your dedication and commitment towards supporting P. The progress P has made over the last six months is significant and is the result of your teamwork. 

Thank you, Mr H, for the attached notes which are very helpful. We will start using numbers strategy at home and will encourage P to practice reading two lines at a time. 

We bought this weekend a Chromebook for her birthday, so she can start practicing at home and further develop her ICT skills. We will be coordinating with the school in this respect. 

Again thank you to all of you, we leave each of these IEP reviews much inspired.

Kind regards 

J and T

FEEDBACK FROM SPECIALIST TEACHER MS VEENA TO THE INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL

Dear Ms. T

Thank you for meeting Anaberta and myself yesterday. The meeting helped us understand the classroom expectations for K. It gave us an idea about the immediate goals to work upon in our support. Thank you for sharing the homework grid which will help us prepare lessons that would connect his tasks at DAS to his school work.

I will be preparing an IEP based on the points we discussed and will share it with you as soon as it is ready.

Thank you once again for taking the time and wishing you a good midterm break.

PARENT BOUQUET FOR VEENA (SPECIALIST TEACHER)


Hi Ana, 
I want to comment on Veena’s work with J. Previously, all efforts to teach J to read have been unsuccessful but with Veena’s help he has made the leap to putting sounds together and to start reading. He enjoys coming to see her and she positively encourages his hard work. As his parent, I am looking forward to his continued progress in Reading. 

Thanks 
N T

PARENT BOUQUET FOR GLADYS (SPECIALIST TEACHER)

To whom it may concern,

Teacher Gladys Wee-Bourne has been working with L for the past 2 years. We have seen tremendous progression in his literacy skills as she prepared him for P1 entry in 2018.

He has also emerged to be more confident and outspoken. She has been very patient working with M who is prone to tantrums and has instilled in him a more methodical and disciplined approach in how he tackles each piece of work. I want to thank Gladys for her great patience & support she has provided to M. She has built a bond and rapport with M. Under her tutelage, he has moved from not being able to read & write to now being able to attempt simple worksheets & read simple books! His self-confidence has also improved loads. She has also given me many tips on how to support M at home.

We truly appreciate her dedication and effort in working with M.

Yours sincerely,

JJ (Mother of M)

BOUQUETS FOR SENIOR EDUCATIONAL THERAPIST & SENIOR SPECIALIST TEACHER BHAVANI

Bouquets for Senior Educational Therapist and Senior Specialist Teacher Bhavani

From Student:H

I was only officially diagnosed with dyslexia when I was secondary 4. This means that I take a longer time to understand and learn a concept. Plus my carelessness and my complacency during my exams also lead to me not doing well in my studies and causing me to lose hope especially my favourite subject, science. However when I was promoted to secondary 4 I knew I had to do better so that I will have more paths to go for my tertiary education. With the help of my teachers and my DAS teacher, Teacher Bhavani. Teacher Bhavani taught me how to annotate the questions properly which although mainly used in English comprehension but I found it to be useful in all of my subjects. She also taught me to read the questions first then the passage so that I can look out for the answers while reading. This really helped to prevent my carelessness. I am really thankful for her! Overall for me trying your best and consistently working both hard and smart, applying what you learnt for study skills helps. It is a long but rewarding journey with some failures along the way and one should not give up.

Bhavani’s write up on H

My student H attended Specialist Tutoring for 4 months at DAS Rex house learning centre. H was a Secondary Four student at A Secondary School (Express Stream). She was referred to Specialist Tutoring as she had weakness in composition writing, lack of understanding in phonological decoding, passage-reading accuracy and reading comprehension.

H is a pleasant and polite student who always appears calm during my lessons. Although H able to engage in daily conversations, she found it challenging at times to express her thoughts during during oral conversations. She would constantly mention about how difficult it is to get the word out and prefers to write her thoughts instead. H and I had a good chats over her verbal outbursts in school when she was stressed at school. We had good conversations on how to control one’s emotions and how failures can be learning experiences.

I incorporated spelling drills, oral conversations based on selected topics, essay writing (expositive) and reading comprehension passages in the sessions. We did many reading comprehension passages and had lots of verbal conversations surrounding the topic to prepare her for the upcoming O level Oral Paper. H is a hardworking and self-disciplined student. She would read the topics ahead of the session to ensure she had relevant knowledge. H shared her interest in pursuing Zoology and was always an independent learner.

H attained a B3 for her O level English when initially she used to obtain C6. I am heartened to see that H’s efforts paid off and she did very well her for O level exams. Good Job H!
