Singapore (PRWEB) December 31, 2014
For the past 30 years, Dr Ernest Wong has used Singapore as a hub to reach out to people across Asia, from Malaysia and Vietnam, to Indonesia, Hong Kong and China.
Between the months of November and December 2014, Dr Ernest trained another 250 young people, adding to the outstanding number of 500,000 trainees in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Vietnam since 1985.
For the December program, the young people aged between eight and 18 were divided into Dr Wong’s two signature programs, SMARTKDS and SUPERTEENS BOOTCAMP.
They were taught academic and life skills covering four different areas of their lives - Academic, Social, Personal and Mental Toughness.
In Personal Skills, the young people learnt the 7 Values for Character Development, goal setting skills, time management and how to take care of their own health. Academic Skills covered various NLP and Accelerated Learning Techniques such as speed reading techniques, which they can use to master all the subjects in their examinations and score “As.”
One of the biggest challenges during childhood is making friends. In the Social Skills section of the program, participants learn how to build confidence, express their thoughts through public speaking, make friends, solve bullying issues, and most importantly, how to express their feelings and love towards their parents.
The last area covered is Mental Toughness. This was taught by Dr Edgar Tham, Singapore’s first Sport & Performance Psychologist and a leading practitioner and authority in mental toughness training, where children learn how to deal with rejection, build trusting relationships, handle exam stress and score well during their examinations.
2015 will mark the 30th anniversary of Dr Ernest Wong’s work in Asia and the success of his final program in 2014 is a great beginning to the upcoming landmark year.
About Learning Mastery
Learning Mastery Pte Ltd has had an impact on more than 500,000 young people in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong and China since 1985. Every child who graduates from its two signature programs, SMARTKIDS & SUPERTEENS has had life changing experiences.
There are two main components to the SMARTKIDS & SUPERTEENS BOOTCAMP: neuro-linguistic programming (NLP Singapore) and accelerated learning techniques.
NLP proposes a connection between the neurological processes ("neuro"), language ("linguistic") and behavioral patterns learned through experience ("programming") and teaches that these can be changed to achieve specific goals in life.
Accelerated learning techniques, as the name suggests, demonstrate how to apply specific methods to make learning easier, faster, and much more effective.
In 1988, founder Dr Ernest Wong received the Prestigious Golden Apple Award from Jack Canfield, founder of the Foundation of self-Esteem in California, USA, in recognition of his contribution towards raising the self-esteem of students in different parts of Asia.
Results speak for themselves: Dr Ernest Wong has personally trained achievers such as Adam Khoo, founder of AKLTG company and started the Adam Khoo Camp after being trained by Dr Ernest Wong; Stuart Tan and Gary Lee, Lead Trainers of AKLTG; Dr Edgar Tham, Singapore’s first Sport & Performance Psychologist and thousands more.
More importantly, many of his students are transformed from being reserved to out-going and from achieving average grades to being in the top 3% of their schools, qualifying them for top universities, such as NUS, NTU, Harvard, Cambridge, Oxford, Yale, Princeton, Hong Kong University, and the Chinese Universities of Hong Kong.
