Individualised Attention to Help Every Student Succeed
[Update: JC1 GP students for 2023 will use the new GP Syllabus. We have updated our curriculum accordingly]
For years, Knowledge Skills has been the go-to resource for high quality, small group GP tuition.
We strongly believe students can only improve when they are well supported through close guidance and provided with ample resources. We work together with our students to ensure each of them receives personalised feedback and the necessary skills to progress in General Paper.
Our students have achieved commendable results because we set aside time for each of them and guide them in all the components for GP – to write effective essays and AQs, to score well for the Short Answer Questions and have essential content knowledge.
We warmly welcome you if you are a new student. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions. We will be happy to discuss how we can help you do well for General Paper.

Throughout J1, I had never gotten higher than an E for GP and was clueless about current affairs. After joining Mr Cheong's classes, I improved rapidly within a year and managed to obtain a B for GP. I even started getting 6-8 marks for my summary consistently when i used to only get 3 marks. He made GP interesting and his notes were easy to understand and very useful. Thank you so much for all the help given to me.

Thank you Mr Cheong for making GP lessons so interesting and helpful. To be honest, I disliked GP because of my poor English. But your lessons were really the ones I looked forward to. Thank you for helping me do well for my A-levels and not giving up on me! 🙂

"An experienced GP teacher, Mr Cheong knows what is needed to do well. I especially appreciate the time spent to personally guide and help me understand my mistakes. I greatly appreciated that I could pass any extra practice I did and he would be able to give me feedback about it the next week. I improved from being below the 50th percentile to the 95th percentile within a year! Thank you for being an inspiring tutor! "

Mr Cheong is a very dedicated teacher who helped me improve greatly in GP and obtain my 'A' in GP. I truly appreciate all the feedback given to improve my writing. His lessons were highly effective and focused. He taught me how to apply the content learnt and his notes were concise which made revision easy. Thank you Mr Cheong!

"My 'A' in GP would not have been possible without Mr Cheong's help. I found Mr Cheong’s lessons extremely effective in dealing with many of my weaknesses and fears of General Paper. He provided concise and effective content notes and how to approach the essay questions and P2 in a systematic manner. The small class size also allowed me to have sufficient personal attention. Thank you Mr Cheong!"
