# Why Aspire Hub?

#### A Novel Teaching & Coaching Approach

Aspire Hub provides a unique approach to primary school tuition in Singapore. Our educators do more than act as teachers: they take on the role of coaches for your child.

A learning coach manages each child’s portfolio and provides personalised attention. Thus, we tailor teaching approaches as well as motivation for best results.

#### Alignment with the MOE Syllabus

Our back-to-school programme is also aligned with the MOE syllabi for each level and subject. Aspire Hub’s programmes cover Secondary 1 to 4 English, Maths, and Sciences, including pure Biology, Chemistry and Physics for Sec 3 and 4 students.

#### Comprehensive Prep for Exams

Our curriculum is also suitable for both O-level and IB students. Moreover, if your child is just entering secondary school, we can facilitate his entry. Our classes can strengthen his knowledge base from primary school and will even give him an early start on some core topics from Sec 1.
