Computing (O-Level) Tuition Classes
If your child is enrolled in O-Level Computing, here’s where they can go for tuition! It’s not uncommon for some students to feel overwhelmed and struggle to cope – especially if the subject is new to them. The Brainery Code™ has rolled out Computing Tuition (O-level) classes for Secondary 3 students. Their experienced teachers have been teaching PYTHON (a core component of the O-Level Computing curriculum) for more than five years. A sound PYTHON foundation will ensure better performance in the practical work portion of the subject (which accounts for 30% of the final grade), so it can make a big difference in your child’s overall grade! The Brainery Code’s Computing Tuition (O-Level) classes are designed to provide consistent practice and exposure, especially around spreadsheet and Python concepts. Coupled with a small class size of no more than five students, and the coding school’s proven track record of coaching from nurturing teachers, your child will be well prepared to ace the subject with ease. Classes will start in July 2023 for Secondary 3 students, to be conducted at their Jurong Branch (or you can choose to attend via Zoom). Limited slots available!
