SPEAKER : Dawn Fung
VENUE : Qiren Tampines
DATE : Saturday Sept 22, 2018
TIME : 11AM-1PM

TICKET : $30 (30 spaces on HomeschoolSingapore.sg)

What is it about?

Parents, we need to connect with one another for support – our development and sanity depends on it! 

For homeschoolers, our support network is so important that it is the first infrastructure that is developed when we join the community, not curriculum. Just like that adage where it takes a village to raise a child, I believe it takes a a few villages to raise a parent. This talk will empower parents to build a parenting community for their journey ahead.

What would you get out of it?

Knowledge and connections. Get the most out of my talk by learning how to build a parenting community through your existing resources. Get connected to one another and spark meaningful ideas. Your community could be the answered prayer to many around you! There will also be a time for Q&A, so come with your trusty notepad, digital or old school.

TOPIC #3 : PSLE MATH CONVERSATIONS FOR BUSY PARENTS

SPEAKER : Wendy Koh
VENUE : Qiren Tampines
DATE : Saturday 17 Nov, 2018
TIME : 11AM-1PM
TICKET : $30 (30 spaces on HomeschoolSingapore.sg)

What is it about?

“An old Englishman once told me that the family of Joe Baker were bakers, and that of Joe Carpenter were carpenters, and that’s how their family names came about.  Parents imparted their family trade, wisdom and values to their children.

That is my wish for you, that you can be empowered with confidence to impart to your own children.  I believe that learning and family life can be lived out in tandem, and is within the reach of most families that desire to enjoy their own children especially during their early years.

In this session, I hope to share with you some math conversations that I had with my son in our homeschool journey that led him to ace PSLE Math with an A*, and how we did so with little drills. I’ll like to shock you with how simple, enjoyable and cheap our journey was, and give you tips on how it can be so for you too.

Come if you have a child between ages 1 to 10.  I promise that you won’t regret making time to hear me.” Wendy Koh

Who is Wendy Koh?

Wendy Koh is a homeschooling mum of 1, who coached her son,now 16, all the way to IGCSEs. She is working on her first book to help the public overcome their fear of learning math with their children.

Any parent interested to learn how to coach their child in PSLE Math with much fun and little pain as possible!
