Event Details

Everything is a little more fun and less of a chore when we do it together.


By popular demand, we will be organizing our study-buddy program for tweens (10 to 14 years) over 8 weeks in May/Jun. The sessions will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4.30pm to 6.30pm. During which, we have teen mentors who will supervise your child with their school work over zoom. The session incorporate the Pomodoro Technique broadly as follows :

  • 15 min : Checking-in & setting intentions for tasks to complete
  • 25 min : Round #1 of FOCUSED WORK (to be done individually)
  • 5 min : Taking a break & tweens can clarify questions with mentors (if any)
  • 25 min : Round #2 of FOCUSED WORK (again done individually)
  • 10min : Sharing of the work completed and again tweens can clarify questions with the mentors (if any)
  • 40 min : Playing games together (eg. role-play games like Werewolf as well as online games like uno, squabble, etc).


Please see the dates for the study-buddy sessions below. You do not have to attend all the sessions but do try to at least attend 7 sessions. Each session will be held from 4.30pm to 6.00pm.



  • Wk 1 : 18 May
  • Wk 2 : 23 & 25 May
  • Wk 3 : 30 May & 1 Jun
  • Wk 4 : 6 & 8 Jun
  • Wk 5 : 13 & 15 Jun
  • Wk 6 : 20 & 22 Jun
  • Wk 7 : 27 & 29 Jun


Through these Study-Buddy Session, we hope to help our ADHD tweens build up the ability to stay focused through the power peer support. And hopefully, it becomes intrinsic and they will be able to self-initiate and sustain work in the future.
