Kovan Learning Centre

All kids can learn. And all they need is the right atmosphere and the right person to understand their needs and teach them accordingly. However, implementing this ideology is easier said than done simply due to the various challenges we face in our society today. Large class sizes, long school hours, irregular meal breaks, peer influence, both parents working leaving little or no supervision at home – are some of the many reasons attested for kids not reaching their true potential. Not to mention long working hours and intensely competitive education, aggravating the situation further, as cited by parents and students alike. All kids can still learn, but under these circumstances, the prospect of success appears a lot more diminished. So what do we do?

While one way is to complain, the other is to stay calm, examine the reasons and engage in dialogues with stake-holders, before quietly going about discussing with an objective to seek a meaningful resolution for these problems. This is how we at Kovan LC began nineteen years ago. Underpinning our success was our no-nonsense and hands-on approach, built on back-breaking insane hours spent in understanding each and every student’s unique learning needs before coming up with a detailed and highly-customised teaching template, which eventually led to the total transformation of no-hopers to top performers. Today we are proud to share some of these initiatives.

We incorporate the latest technology into the concept of immersive learning to engage students, spark their interest in learning Mathematics and help them build confidence and overcome any learning difficulties in Mathematics.

Students would get to experience our new approach of learning and mastering Algebra.

Why Algebra Empowers?

Algebra Empowers (TM) is a foundation topic in Mathematics. Many other topics, such as Simultaneous Equations, Quadratic Equations and Coordinate Geometry, require students to have a sound knowledge of Algebra.

When students are equipped with sound knowledge of Algebra, they can handle other topics with confidence.
