Academic Excellence & Study Skills

In this digital age full of distractions and attention grabbers, students' attention span and ability to focus have been compromised in general. At Kingmaker, we believe that under such circumstances, there is a greater and pressing need for intervention measures to equip students with the necessary skills--from understanding the human brain and how it reacts to various factors, to how to customise their study approaches beyond the conventionally known methods--for them to crush their academics in such environments.

Our programme serves to increase academic excellence and productivity through these three main spheres:

1. Strengths-Based Study Approach--"Different Strokes for Different Folks"

By understanding the students' own strengths, they will be able to adjust their approach for more effective and sustained learning. By understanding other students' different approaches to learning, they can start appreciating everyone's strengths and take steps towards building effective collaborative learning for greater excellence in future!

2. Brain-Based Study Techniques--"Study Smart, Don't Just Study Hard"

This programme guides participants to be fully and effectively engaged in class or lectures. Through live demonstration and practice, students will acquire the skills to maximise productivity and learning in school. Participants also learn to choose and develop their most effective methods for memory techniques and to apply their own relevant techniques to commit most-important academic content to long-term memory.

3. Time Management--"Tame the Mind & Control your Time"

This programme deconstructs digital media influence and helps participants understand how it impacts academic productivity. Through a series of live experiments, participants assess their own ability to focus. They also customise practical plans to manage technology use.
