Challenges Faced By P6 Chinese Students

Overwhelmed With Stress

The Primary 6 year is extremely important for students as it is the year of their national examinations. This will definitely result in elevated stress levels in students, which might affect their ability to perform well during examinations.

One way to tackle heightened stress levels is engaging with a Primary 6 Chinese Tutor! A tutor will effectively help to target the student’s weaknesses, listen to the problems they face in the Chinese subject, as well as to help the students improve.

Unable To Understand Vocabulary

As students progress to higher levels, the amount of vocabulary they are expected to understand increases exponentially, and students face even greater amounts of difficulties in understanding certain vocabulary. Hence, at Primary 6 level, students are not only expected to have a good understanding of all the vocabulary learnt at lower levels, they have to master the vocabulary at Primary 6 level, which is definitely a challenge.

By engaging a Primary 6 Chinese Tutor, students will receive targeted practices, be it through repeated reiteration and testing, or various other memorisation techniques to allow students to gain a good grasp of a wide variety of Chinese vocabulary. This will greatly benefit them in the long run as students will get to build up on their Chinese foundational skills.

Inability To Do Well In Comprehension

Primary 6 students usually struggle with Comprehension during their Chinese examinations. Apart from the weak understanding and recognition of Chinese characters and vocabulary, students are also required to do basic inference in order to synthesise answers for their Comprehension questions, which is difficult for many.

Hence, a Primary 6 Chinese Tutor will be extremely beneficial in this aspect as students will be exposed to Comprehension practices weekly, which will serve as repeated reinforcement for students. During Primary 6 Chinese Tuition, students will also be introduced to tips and skills which can help them in their Chinese language and Comprehension skills.

Unable to Speak Well During Oral

Speaking well is also a crucial element of Primary 6 Chinese – one in which students usually struggle with. As most students do not speak the Chinese language at home, they are solely exposed to the language in school during their Chinese lessons. Therefore, it understandably becomes more difficult for students to learn how to speak well during lessons, during Oral examinations or in their day-to-day lives.

Hence, a Primary 6 Chinese Tutor is definitely a viable option as the tutors will provide targeted, small-group/one-to-one practice for the Primary 6 student, providing them with a safe space to practice speaking in Chinese. Additionally, the Primary 6 Chinese Tutors will also provide immediate feedback and periodic tips in order to help students improve.

Why You Should Engage A P6 Chinese Tutor

Benefits of Hiring Chinese Tuition

1. Help Students Clarify Doubts

In school, Primary 6 students might be unwilling to clear their doubts in class, in front of all their peers. Furthermore, at Primary 6 level, students might start getting anxious about their upcoming national examinations and their doubts and questions might start to increase.

Hence, by engaging a Primary 6 Chinese Tutor, they will provide 100% attention and guidance to students, allowing them to clarify any doubts or misconceptions that might arise. Furthermore, with a private 1-1 setting, students can also clear any doubts as they arise without needing to wait till after lessons to get their questions answered.

2. Hone Students’ Inference Skills

At Primary 6 level, students are expected to have a good grasp of basic inference skills for the Comprehension section of their examination. This is extremely crucial and it can be a way to determine the student’s mastery of the Chinese language syllabus.

By engaging a Primary 6 Chinese Tutor, the tutor will be able to identify the student’s weaknesses and learning styles, and will be able to curate a lesson plan directly focused on helping the student improve. Additionally, with repeated weekly practice during Chinese Tuition lessons, students will be honed on their inference skills, and will be able to help them master the skill in no time!

3. Train Students In Conversational Skills

For Primary 6 students who are not constantly exposed to the Chinese language at home, they might not be able to properly speak in proper Chinese intonations, expressions or tones. This might result in their Chinese conversational skills becoming subpar, even if they are able to recognise words or write fluently. This is because speaking involves large amounts of repeated practice in order to internalise the various tones, expressions and intonations used.

Having a Primary 6 Chinese Tutor will come in handy as students will be trained on Chinese conversational skills, without the pressure they would have in school in front of all their peers. With a more private setting, students will slowly be able to build up their confidence and train their Chinese conversational skills, which will come in handy for their Primary 6 oral examination!

4. Train Students In Writing Skills

Another important aspect in the Primary 6 Chinese syllabus is writing. To do well, students have to have a strong command of the Chinese language, together with a mastery in character writing and the ability to form coherent sentences. At Primary 6 level, students might not be as well-versed with writing as they are not well-trained in that aspect.

By engaging a Primary 6 Chinese Tutor, students will be provided with an extra avenue for practice. The Primary 6 Chinese Tutor will also be able to provide instantaneous feedback to students, allowing them to improve drastically every week thanks to the Primary 6 Chinese Tutor’s close guidance.

What To Look For in A Primary Chinese Tutor

Ability To Help Students In PSLE

At Primary 6 level, most students will be extremely stressed out with the upcoming PSLE. Hence, it is important to find a Primary 6 Chinese Tutor that is equipped with the relevant teaching experience and abilities to help ease students’ worries through targeted teaching techniques.

For example, it might be better to find a Primary 6 Chinese Tutor that has experience in helping Primary 6 students, or have testimonials from Primary 6 students who have achieved good grades in their PSLE Chinese.

Ability To Spot Weaknesses

Since the Chinese language is a skill-based subject, it might be difficult to spot mistakes and weaknesses as compared to other subjects. As such, it will definitely be important to pick a Primary 6 Chinese Tutor that is experienced enough to spot any of your child’s weaknesses or mistakes.

Furthermore, at Primary 6 level, with a short runway to the PSLE examinations, it is even more so important for Primary 6 Chinese Tutors to be attuned to the student’s weaknesses in order to help them improve or to clear the misconceptions.

Ability To Provide Additional Resources

At Primary 6 level, it might be difficult to find good PSLE Chinese resources that will be able to help students. Hence, by choosing a Primary 6 Chinese Tutor that is able to provide additional resources, you can save time on hunting for resources and leave it up to your Primary 6 Chinese Tutor!

The ability to provide additional resources also means that the tutor has spent time and effort curating these Chinese resources – which is also a key characteristic of their experience and dedication to teaching. Hence, when searching for a Primary 6 Chinese Tutor, it will definitely be great to look out for tutors who are able to provide their own self-collated Chinese resources.

Academic And Teaching Qualifications

When engaging a Primary 6 Chinese Tutor, it is important to select one that has decent academic and teaching qualifications. For example, it might be better to pick a tutor that has graduated from a Chinese related course and has taught for a minimum of 1 year. If you are looking for a more experienced tutor to guide your child, you might also want to look out for tutors who have taught in MOE schools.

Such qualifications are crucial in ensuring that the tutor is qualified enough to teach your child, especially at Primary 6 level where the PSLE Chinese examination is approaching.
