90-minute 1-to-1 Guidance High Impact Learning Cycle

What we do?

✔ Tailor-made Learning

Our methods are not restricted by age and grade, enabling every child to start learning from a level suitable for his/her abilities. This builds foundation and re-establishes confidence to help children catch up in school. 

Children vary in learning abilities. Some may need more time and exercises than others. Therefore, a tailor-made approach that suits a child’s learning pace helps create a pleasant learning experience that encourages progress. 

✔ One-to-one Guidance 

We provide one-to-one guidance so that the teacher can pay full attention to the student. We do not subscribe to one-size-fits-all teaching method. Neither do we divide students into groups based on age or grade.

✔ Learning Ability Assessment 

Before enrollment, children will sit for a free literacy assessment to identify the challenges they face. Upon enrollment, a more comprehensive assessment will be given by the teacher to assess a child’s proficiency level before formulating a learning solution and materials that suit his/her needs.

✔Simultaneous Left and Right Brain Development 

Unlike conventional methods, YelaoShr® Word Recognition and Abacus Mental Arithmetic Programmes employ ‘visual impression’ in teaching that stimulates both the left and right brain of a child to promote whole brain development.

Why we do it?

One to One makes all the difference when teaching children to read

Before the start of the company, Madam Yap held tutoring classes at her home to make ends meet in 2005. During these tutoring sessions, she realized that many of her students were unable to understand individual words. Their illiteracy made them unable to do their schoolwork which resulted in poor grades. It also became apparent to her that the children's language proficiency was not on par with their age group. An incident which left a deep impression on her mind was when a Standard 5 student of hers was unable to read basic phrases such as "sekolah" (school) and "selamat pagi." (good morning) These problems plagued her mind and led to many sleepless nights. After mulling through various solutions, she finally came to a definite conclusion; to start a student-centred learning system.

Hence, Mdm. Yap founded YelaoShr® Creative Learning Centre, which focuses on students' potential and guides them to learn at their speed and level accordingly. The classes begin from the level that they are weakest at, no matter their age. For example, a Standard 5 child may have to start from learning the basic Standard 2 Bahasa Malaysia vocabulary. As the students learn and improve, then they may proceed to the next level.
