English Tutor Conducting A Lesson

Importance of Creative Writing Tuition

Creative Writing can be a struggle for many students, especially if students struggle to phrase their ideas and thoughts in a coherent manner. Moreover, in order to be proficient at creative writing, students are also required to have solid foundational knowledge of grammar, vocabulary and punctuation. 

If you are struggling in your narrative and creative writing, you are not alone. In fact, many students in Singapore today tend to struggle with their creative writing. This could be attributed to students being uncomfortable or anxious expressing their ideas freely.

Here at MindFlex, our Top Creative Writing Tutors will be able to coach students in crafting a compelling and creative story from scratch that makes appropriate use of grammar, punctuation and tenses. Choose from our large pool of Creative Writing Tutors to start your Creative Writing journey today!

Challenges Faced By Creative Writing Students

Inability to Clarify Doubts

Some Creative Writing students face some difficulties clarifying their doubts in class, especially students who are more quiet and timid by nature. As such, they may be afraid of being ridiculed by their peers, and as a result do not speak up in class.

At MindFlex, it is of the utmost importance that students voice out their concerns and doubts as soon as possible to facilitate a smoother learning process. Moreover, the act of speaking up in class will train Creative Writing students to speak up later on in life. This is helpful in building up their confidence as communicators.

Unable to Understand Certain Words

Some Creative Writing students may face difficulties understanding certain new vocabulary. This is especially true for Creative Writing students who lack sufficient exposure to Creative Writing materials and content such as books and television shows.

As a result, students may feel confused and intimidated at the sight of new words, and thus may be less incentivised to continue studying the language. MindFlex believes that Creative Writing students should read widely and extensively to continuously expose themselves to new words and phrases, and also make it a habit to check the dictionary for the meanings of words that they do not understand.

Poor Examination Performance

It is often a common sight to see Creative Writing students study hard for their various tests and examinations, but end up with less-than-stellar results. Unfortunately, this is a result of poor examination performance, meaning that the work and revision that students put in does not translate into good examination results.

Here at MindFlex, we recommend that Creative Writing students complete their essays and stories under timed conditions and in a simulated examination environment, so as to ensure that they are able to perform in their actual examinations.

Poor Foundation in English

Creative Writing can be immensely challenging for students who do not have a stable foundation in English. This is because a strong English foundation is necessary for students to build a coherent and compelling Creative Writing essay.

Here at MindFlex, our Top Creative Writing Tutors are able to help students to build a strong foundation in the language by laying the foundations of basic Grammar, Vocabulary and other Creative Writing devices. This will stand students in good stead, ensuring that they will be able to ace their Creative Writing in school.

Why You Should Engage A Creative Writing Tutor

Benefits of Hiring English Tuition

1. Help Students Clarify Doubts

Creative Writing students may not be willing to clarify their doubts in class, as they fear being laughed at by their peers. Moreover, teachers may not be available for 1-to-1 consultations, given that they teach numerous classes and numerous students. This thus makes it rather difficult for students to seek individual and personalised help in school.

A Creative Writing English Tutor will be able to be totally dedicated to helping the individual students, thus helping students to clarify their misconceptions or doubts that they have. Moreover, students need not feel shy about asking their questions, given the private environment of the tuition class.

2. Gradually Ease Students Into Creative Writing Syllabus

Learning Creative Writing will no doubt be tough for Creative Writing English students. The increase in intensity and rigour of the curriculum is sure to be a source of stress for students.

With the help of a Creative Writing English Tutor, students will be able to make a smooth transition into Creative Writing with their Creative Writing Tutor serving as a pillar of support in their academic endeavors.

3. Help Students Master English Vocabulary

English can be an immensely difficult language to master. Given the complexity of its grammar rules, unfamiliar phonics and different sentence structures, it is no wonder that many Creative Writing English students are left struggling in the language.

With the help of a Creative Writing English Tutor, students will be provided with additional guidance and exposure to the language. Creative Writing students will thus be able to gain mastery of Creative Writing with this additional support.

4. Aid With Sentence Structuring

It is no secret that many Creative Writing students struggle with utilising proper sentence structure in their everyday spoken and written English. This problem is compounded by the use of Singlish in our everyday speech, which many Creative Writing English students tend to imbibe and use in their academic work.

A Top Creative Writing English Tutor will be able to guide students towards using proper sentence structures and grammatically accurate terms in their writing and speaking.

What To Look For in A Creative Writing Tutor

Experience Teaching Creative Writing Students

It is imperative that you check if the tutor you are interested in engaging has experience in teaching other Creative Writing students. With such experience, they will then be familiar with the current English syllabus and  common examination practices. It is thus important that you ensure that the English Tutor has been teaching students of similar levels.

MindFlex also recommends that you choose tutors who have experience in teaching English to students of similar levels or have the personal academic achievements to teach Creative Writing.

Patience

It is extremely important that you engage a patient tutor who is able to explain concepts and English rules in a patient manner. With a patient English tutor, students will be more likely to clarify their doubts and misconceptions with the tutor, since they are not too daunted or intimidated to do so.

The patience of the tutor is an immensely important factor when selecting a tutor. MindFlex recommends that you engage a patient English tutor in order for your child to have a smooth English learning journey.

Commitment

It is also important to check if the English tutor that you select is able to commit to your time slot in the long term. This is important, as it would be a pity for the tutor to build a strong rapport with your child, and then subsequently cancel future lessons due to clashes in your schedules. 

Here at MindFlex, we recommend that you check with your tutor on whether they are able to commit long-term in order to avoid disappointment and the disruption of your child’s learning. 

Qualifications

Top English Tutors in Singapore will naturally have testimonials and recommendations from previous tutees, as well as have the appropriate qualifications to teach. We recommend for you to check if they have been recommended by past parents or have any testimonials from parents and students, in order to gauge if the English tutor is right for your child’s needs.

Typically, most recommended English Tutors will have strong qualifications as well as a strong testimonial base, which can reassure you of their capability to teach your child.
