ACGPS believes in the relevance of General Paper as both an academic subject and a life-skill.

Having spent 13 years teaching the subject and more than 20 years immersed in it since my days as a student, I believe that a good grounding in General Paper will prepare students well for the dynamic and uncertain social and work landscape of the future.

One of my core beliefs is that students may not have a good understanding of General Paper either in terms of skills for the various components or content knowledge. Sometimes, students may be missing in both skills and content knowledge for the subject.

The solution for these challenges center on making learning an efficient process. Some of the techniques I share with students involve the use of mnemonics and memory recollection techniques to help you generate ideas under the mentally and emotionally demanding conditions of the major examinations.

Other techniques involve pre-setting and pre-positioning key ideas and concepts during our tuition sessions which can then be readily applied for both the essay and Application Question (AQ) segments of the paper.
