Hi,

I am a Math and Science teacher. I’ve been offering private tuitions of these two subjects for several years now. I teach at my students’ places. But now I want to initiate my own institute where I can teach all of them at one place. I want your opinions on what the name and motto should be. I such a captivating title along with a motivating motto that help me grab students. As far as my opinion is concerned, I want to entitle it by name, i.e. Mister Umais’ . However, if you have a better idea, please let me know me, and also suggest me a motto. My mind is drawing a blank for the motto.

One more thing: is the apostrophe after my name needed or can I leave it out. I am asking this question, because I have noticed both, for example, in and it’s omitted, while in The Queen’s College, . it is added. I am kind of confused. So please nail this third and last problem too.

Thanks

Umais

#1 How about "The Umais Learning Centre"?

#2 "Reaching the stars through study"

#3 You could well leave it out. It is not really necessary in the title of an institution. "The Queen's College" has one because it is the college founded by Queen Anne.

Thanks very much indeeed, Feebs11.

#1 How about "The Umais Learning Centre"?

Great!

#2 "Reaching the stars through study"

Wow! Can I make it "Reach the stars..."?

#3 You could well leave it out. It is not really necessary in the title of an institution. "The Queen's College" has one because it is the college founded by Queen Anne.

And my insitution will be founded by myself. I am sorry for acting dumb, but it still sounds a bit vague to me.
It is The College of the Queen. The same applies to King's College, Cambridge, founded by King Henry VI - it is the College of the King.

The other examples you provided were named for someone/somewhere, so the possessive is not used.

In the case of your institution, I would avoid the possessive as it will cause endless problems with people not being sure whether to put in the apostrophe or not. Keep it as simple and memorable as you can.

Yes - Reach for the stars through study works fine.

My dear Feebs, thanks for your time and consideration, but I am sorry that the notion of apostrophe still sounds above my head. I don't know why? Perhaps my brain has shut down or I am being unnecessarily finicky. I don't understand when the institution is going to be founded by me, why can't I make it Mr. Umais' Learning Center. (i.e. The institution of Umais.). I want to know this not because I didn't like your suggestion, infact your suggestion is better. I want to know this for it's been bothering me for days, and I want it to be nailed as soon as possible.

Secondly, again your suggestion for the slogan is superfantastic, but where I live, institution slogans are like "Join and Experience the Difference.", "We believe in hard work", "Learn Maths like never before." etc. You would have noticed that through all these slogans they are saying what they really offer. My mind is just blank, so if you don't mind, can you offer me such kind of slogan?

Great regards,

Umais
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
No reason why you should not if that is what you want. It is slightly awkward to a native ear, but if it works for you, then go with it.

As to the slogan - you could try to be a little different! However, here are some tries:
