BENTONG: All 16,000 primary and secondary students here will get free access to an online e-tuition programme that is fully sponsored by Bentong MP Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai.
Bentongtuition.com.my will link students to ezlearn2u.my which was set up by trainer and former The Star Education columnist Sunny Yee.
“All subjects from Standard One to Form Five will be available,” Liow said during the launch at the Bentong Municipal Council hall.
The MCA president pointed out that Yee’s teaching methods were proven to be effective.
“My children attended his tuition centre,” he said.
Liow related how his son, who was scoring only red marks for maths, started doing well after only a few months.
He urged headmasters, teachers and parents to encourage students here to make full use of the programme.
Liow also advised students to adopt the attitude of gaining knowledge rather than just doing well in exams.
“If you go to school to learn to face exams, you will be under a lot of pressure,” he said.
Unlike other countries, Liow said, Malaysia did not have the “culture of lifelong learning” and hoped that positive attitude could begin here.
