Specially for students who feel they need a breakthrough in their studies …

Discover How Your Child Can Be Motivated To Reach His/Her


Motivation is the difference maker in academic pursuits and success. When students become masters of self-motivation strategies, students of “average” intelligence can far exceed their potential. Even students of high intelligence will become even more excellent in their studies.  

Bringing out the BEST in me (Primary School)

Primary School Students will learn:

  • The Basics of Self-Motivation
  • The Power of Self-Talk
  • How to Discover Interest in Any Subject
  • Overcoming Obstacles to Motivation

Students will learn through activities and role-plays how they can motivate themselves even in a subject they may not have an interest in. They will also learn how to overcome external obstacles (E.g. Unsupportive friends, fear of teachers) to motivation.

Design for Success (Secondary School)

Secondary School Students will learn:

  • What is Self-Motivation?
  • Structuring the Environment to be Successful
  • Developing a Motivation Plan
  • Overcoming Challenge in Studies

Students will learn through activities and role-plays how they can work with environmental factors to create the most ideal atmosphere to study. They will be brought through experiences to build interest and motivation in staying motivated. They will also learn to derive a plan to help them succeed.
