ABOUT US

The Alternative Story - Where Learning Comes Alive
Making Learning Fun and Teaching with Passion since 2008.



We believe that a child is naturally curious and loves to learn. However, formal education can sometimes kill that curiosity. At The Alternative Story, we hope to create an environment where that curiosity is kindled and a child will come to classes loving to learn. In the process, the child does not just learn to achieve high scores but they develop a thirst for knowledge which will follow them through their lives.

  • Types of Classes Offered

  • In our Regular Lessons, we cover 2 components - Creative Writing and the Paper 2 components such as Comprehension, Synthesis, Editing, Cloze Passages and Grammar. Students will be taught a wide range of techniques in both components.


  • In these intensive Creative Writing Classes, students are taught techniques such as Plot Development, Building of Tension and Characterisation to tackle the new MOE Syllabus Compositions.


  • During the June and November/ December Holidays, we want every student to be fully prepared and equipped for the upcoming term. As such, the Holiday Programmes will include both Creative Writing and Paper 2 Components.

Teaching Strategies

We believe in adopting & developing the most effective methods to equip your child
Engaging the Hearts

The key strength of TAS is in the intangibles. We engage the hearts of children and bring them on a journey of learning.

Igniting Curiosity

Every child's primary question is 'WHY?' Our goal is to kindle this curiosity - to develop in them a love for learning that will follow them through their lives.

Imparting Principles

We teach by principles and not by "what sounds right". We make learning digestible for students by breaking down the concepts into principles.

Being Relevant to the New Syllabus

With the changes in the new school curriculum, TAS continues to be relevant to the new PSLE examination by adopting new teaching methodologies.

Teaching Beyond the Box

In TAS, we go beyond being confined to a 'boxed-in' mindset - students think out of the box... and be as creative as they can be!

Working Hand in Hand with Parents

Parents play a pivotal role in the development of a child's life. TAS believes in providing support to the parents to accelerate the development of your child.
