    My kids are attending a homeschool at east ledang. The teacher is preparing my 14-yr-old child for the cambridge exams which my child will take at about 16 if she is ready. I can send my child to a British uni at educity for a foundation course for about a year and my child can attend the same uni after she has passed her foundation course. If anyone is interested in knowing more about the homeschool, you can pm me.

    My apologies for my late response. The homeschool costs RM 1800 plus per month. The teacher is Mr Raj who was a national scholar in Msia and majored in aerospace in a UK uni. Was told that he had either a masters or doctorate and worked in A* and nus for 20 plus years before he decided to return to msia and homeschool his two girls and others. He will assess the students for a reasonable period of time before embarking on the suitable syllabus for the students. Basically he will ask the parents what their expectations are and based on the students' performance during the assessments, he will tailor the syllabus accordingly. For example, he has determined that my elder girl is reasonably good in her studies so he is preparing her for the cambridge exams. According to my elder girl, his girl who is of the same age as my elder girl (14 years old) is well prepared for the exams and will be taking the exams either this or next year (sorry can't remember exactly when cos his elder girl (15 years old) is also taking the Cambridge exams). As for my younger girl who is 10 years old, i.e. primary four, Mr Raj has recommended that she follows the spore syllabus.

    2nd part:

    He basically has created his own homeschool syllabus from the spore, uk and us syllabuses/syllabi. Oh his subjects are as follows: double maths, triple sciences, english, junior mba to teach the kids how to manage money etc, robotics and computer programming cos we are living in the IT age, bahasa (written and spoken but not examinable) and physical exercises every day. Oh reading on a daily basis is a must and the students have to submit book reviews every Friday.

    My elder girl enjoys the homeschool immensely and has commented that Mr Raj is very knowledgeable and is able to explain the maths and sciences well. She even said that Mr Raj is more competent and knowledgeble than her teachers in both her primary and secondary schools in spore. Even her Australian classmate who attends an international school in the afternoon prefers Mr Raj and said that Mr Raj could explain the mathematical concepts well unlike her teacher in the international school.

    Hi, my two earlier posts were in response tp your query with extra info but the posts have strangely not been approved. Just a conjecture. I have to repeat that the cost is rm 1800 plus in this post.

    Thanks for your reply! I was concerned about cost of education but more for the A levels. Does this teacher prepare students for University admission? How much does that cost? And if he has more students, will he form a class? Will that change his fees?

    Hi, apologies for the late response again. I have redirected your queries to Mr Raj but he didn't respond at all. So rude hor. I think maybe it is best that you contact him directly at 012-726 5904. All the best!

    Some agent told me that many Sinkies are moving back to Little Red Dot because they found that their kids' school results suffer after family moved to JB. Agent claims "they will be back"! More hope than reality, since he also said the "market is bad lah" :)
