Masterclasses with Teacher Claudine

These masterclasses are designed as individual modules offering practical writing strategies which children can easily incorporate into their existing writing practice—no matter what stage they are at. Lifetime access to the masterclasses gives your child the opportunity to work at their own time and pace.

What makes these masterclasses different from others?

As a veteran English and literature teacher, Claudine Fernandez has spent 16 years teaching and assessing children at different levels in the Singapore school system, gaining insight into what makes or breaks a child's writing practice. She combines these observations with her unique yet genial personality to effectively draw out the writer in your child, using a learning format that can cater to different learning styles.

INSTANT

Have a teacher at your fingertips. Stream a tutorial anytime and anywhere to access new writing techniques or revise for retention. And because each module is broken down into smaller chunks of 4 to 5 minutes each, it is easy to launch into the learning or to catch up from where you have left off, making it easy for you to tap into your child's golden moments for learning.

MEMORABLE

Has your child ever studied something over and over again and yet failed to recall it later? Writing can be a complex and stressful activity, but learning how to write well need not be so. Teacher Claudine presents the information in a soothing yet encouraging tone while keeping the content fun and relatable. By situating the material and examples in context using visuals, sound and meaningful elaboration, children are better able to encode the learning in their memory and to retrieve it later.

INTERACTIVE

Your child will experience the classes as though he or she was having a close conversation with a trusted mentor. Not only that, worksheets are included as part of the bundle, giving your child a chance to digest and practise what they have just learnt. Once completed, your child will receive feedback directly from Teacher Claudine on how well he or she has applied the knowledge. This will help your child take ownership of their learning.

Testimonials

Find out what other parents have to say about Artistic Strategies Academy and our offerings.

'I would really like them to see writing as a way to express themselves. I want them to feel liberated to put their thoughts and feelings down in writing. However, the school environment can be overscrupulous, and maybe not compatible with their learning styles; it was stifling their love for self-creation... I wasn't keen on tuition, but I see ASA's classes as going beyond mere tuition for grades. It provides a wholesome, nurturing learning environment that honours every child as a unique individual and seeks to develop their strengths and spark their creativity.'

Jovalene

Mummy of Justin and Joey

'[After attending ASA's classes] I felt that she was more confident when she was talking, she had confidence in her ability to do things, write... and [also] her speed in work. The school noticed it as well... [they] sent me an email saying that her speed has improved, her meticulousness, her writing style. All of that has improved without me doing much so it was definitely ASA.
