Teaching that makes a difference

This post is brought to you by Taylor’s International School.

RAISING the next generation of movers and shakers who will make an impact in the future starts from building a strong foundation throughout their formative years and beyond. Good teachers play a big role in building this foundation. The best teachers instil confidence, motivate students to self-learn and uses effective teaching strategies. Teaching strategies play an important role in classroom instruction because it adds excitement to the lessons and encourages students to participate in class and connect with their peers while learning.




Taylor’s International School’s teaching strategies

TIS’s teaching strategies are rooted in the Quantum Learning System. 

What is the Quantum Learning System?  This approach is based on the brain’s natural way of  learning and recognises unique individual learning styles. Through the use of this proven research-based methodology, teachers pique curiosity and engage students right from the moment a lesson begins. Our teachers deliver engaging lessons, facilitate innovative learning, instil good values and prioritize the well-being of their students. Check out what the students say below.

Delivering engaging and joyful lessons

“My teacher makes learning fun and easy. She explains things very clearly by using a lot of visuals. If I am still unclear on certain things, she will take the time to re-explain and give more examples to make me understand better. I especially enjoy group-based activities. The activities get harder each time and it challenges me to want to learn more.”  
~ Hannah Koh. (TIS Puchong Year 6 student).

Facilitating innovative learning

“My art teacher encourages me to think out of the box for my creations. She inspires me to try out new techniques and ideas. After giving me some direction, she would challenge me to take it further. This has helped me gain confidence in my learning.” 
~ Kavytasha Ranjithan (TIS Puchong Year 8 student)

TIS teachers inspire students to think innovatively about their learning. 

Lessons and activities are crafted in ways where students learn how to use different techniques to reach a conclusion. 

Students are often challenged to think outside the box for solutions. 

Instilling good values

“We are taught to step up and communicate. “Our teachers help us get along and they always tell us to coordinate with each other. We are encouraged to talk to everyone and treat the class as one big family.”

~ Aryan Mirza. (TIS Kuala Lumpur Year 9 student)

Character development is an integral part of TIS’ curriculum. Strong character and good values are emphasised as part of the foundation during lessons.

Teachers regularly coach students in sociability, effective communication skills and much more.

Prioritising well-being

“Our teachers care about our mental wellbeing and always check on us. Every day before classes begin they make sure everyone is fine and doing well. They help us a lot.”

~ Aryan Mirza. (TIS Kuala Lumpur Year 9 student)

TIS teachers create a positive and respectful atmosphere that makes students feel safe,  trusted, supported, belonged and emotionally confident. Issues that impact student life such as health and personal safety are frequently addressed.
