Parents & Graduates' Review of MindChamps Thinking Cap Programme
I’m very impressed with the philosophy behind MindChamps. I’m a lecturer myself and understand the need for students to have the right mindset to persevere and succeed in school and in life. Not only is this programme about study skills, more importantly, it’s about coaching and mentoring. My son is now more self-disciplined as a result of it. MindChamps’ Thinking Cap Programme is the coaching programme that all students need!

After seeing how our daughter had benefited from MindChamps, we decided to send our son too – he has been transformed; he’s now more positive, doesn’t give up when faced with problems, enthusiastic about studying and willing to sit at his desk for longer periods of time. We strongly recommend the MindChamps Thinking Cap Programme to all families.

My journey with MindChamps’ Thinking Cap programme has certainly been an unforgettable, rare and unique experience. Apart from achieving 4 A*s for PSLE, the creative thinking techniques taught during the programme encourages us to realise our limitless potential and countless possibilities of doing things. With these skills, I was inspired to think out of the box and view learning from a fresh perspective.

I enrolled my daughter, Faustina, in the MindChamps Thinking Cap Programme and PSLE Success Programme because her elder brother had previously benefitted from them. Importantly, from the MindChamps’ parenting workshops that I attended, I realised that these programmes go beyond improving the academic abilities of students, focusing on imparting values as well. I believe this is critical in the character-building process for any young person.
My daughter used to be shy and reserved. After attending the MindChamps Thinking Cap Programme, she learned to develop her own positive views and has become more assertive and confident in articulating them. She is also less afraid of making mistakes now. Her transformation can also be attributed to her trainer at MindChamps, who was very encouraging and who took the effort to affirm her in developing her unique strengths. This helped her build her confidence tremendously.
What is more, my daughter developed such confidence after attending the MindChamps Thinking Cap Programme that she is able to cope with the Maths classes she attends under the MindChamps PSLE Success Programme. This, coupled with a good trainer who encouraged students to go beyond their ability, a small class size for personalised attention, good time management skills, the gradual progress she made and a burning desire to do well, my daughter achieved an ‘A’ in her PSLE Maths examination – a vast improvement from the ‘E’ grade she attained during her pre-assessment. With such good foundation built in Maths at MindChamps, my daughter now has no problems coping with this subject after entering Secondary School.

I enrolled in MindChamps after my PSLE. As I was not motivated to study hard then, my results were average. Under the guidance of my trainer, I learnt various techniques to study much more efficiently in Secondary School and became much more motivated. I applied the techniques that MindChamps taught me and got straight ‘A’s for my Secondary One year-end examination.

After I noticed my daughter’s grades had dropped in school, and this has resulted in her unwillingness to go to school, I felt that it was imperative to change this situation around by changing her mindset towards her studies and attending school. Thus, I enrolled her in MindChamps’ Thinking Cap Programme.
In just half-a-year, her attitude shifted from the negative to the positive and her progress in approaching her studies and school became noticeable. She does not cry before she goes to school anymore. Moreover, she has learned to apply the techniques from the programme in her school work and was even accorded a Good Progress Award by the Ministry of Education, something I never expected.
I would like to thank the trainers at MindChamps for motivating my daughter and other children!
