We recognize the importance of paying special attention to struggling learners who might not be performing at the same levels as their peers. Personal interactions by our in-house counsellor offers constructive feedback, and extra instruction in areas of need. These after-school classes are designed to give students the tools they need to gain a more complete grasp of difficult ideas, allowing them to work at par with their classmates. Epistemo strives to create a positive and safe environment for learners with low self-esteem and encourages them to ask as many questions as necessary and apply creative teaching and learning methodologies to help learners understand concepts, rather than feel pressured to learn everything immediately.
Epistemo provides an enhancement programme for learners who have inborn aptitude, either in academic or co-curricular fields. Gifted learners, who learn quickly and recall facts and concepts easily, often enter classrooms with prior knowledge of content that is advanced for their age. At Epistemo, we believe that exceptional students require adjustments to their education in the form of advanced intellectual stimulation to help them reach their fullest potential, and to prevent possible underachievement. Our objective is to provide opportunities and initiatives in response to the articulated needs and interests of gifted students, while developing their higher order and creative thinking skills, and providing diverse learning experiences.
Children with learning difficulties and those who are differently-abled pose the same psychological needs and characteristics as their peers. Learning disabilities are often wrongly attributed to laziness, and students with who encounter academic failure for too long may appear to lose interest in learning or to be confused by school work. Epistemo offers these learners, opportunities to succeed and regain their confidence and motivation. We understand that such children with learning disabilities require evidence-based instruction and educational support.
Our in-house Remedial Counselling Unit with trained counsellor who works with learners to thoroughly understand their strengths and weaknesses. Timely and consistent support can enable them with learning disabilities to become successful adults.
