Challenges Faced By English Preschool Students
Inability To Clarify Doubts
Some Preschool 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 to speak up in class.
At MindFlex, we believe that 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 Preschool English students to speak up later on in life. This is helpful in building up their confidence, and will serve them well in the future and in the workplace.
Struggle To Write In English
Most Preschool students are able to speak in simple English, since it is usually how their parents communicate with them. However, learning phonics, accurate spelling and grammar rules can prove to be a struggle for many Preschool English students.
In order to learn English to their fullest potential, MindFlex recommends that Preschool students consistently practice writing and reading simple English texts and story books as much as they can.
Not Able to Form Sentences
Preschool English students often struggle forming complete and accurate sentences, especially in written English. This is extremely important, as it forms the foundation of the entire language. Having a poor understanding of proper sentence structures can be immensely detrimental to Preschool 1 English students, as this could affect their overall communication skills in the future.
Here at MindFlex, we recommend that Preschool students begin expressing themselves in full sentences as soon as they can. We also recommend students to read widely, in order to expose themselves to different basic sentence structures.
Unable to Understand Certain Words
Some Preschool English students may face difficulties understanding certain new vocabulary. This is especially true for Preschool English students who lack sufficient exposure to English 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 Preschool English students should read widely and extensively to continuously expose themselves to new words and phrases, and also make it a habit to ask their teachers or parents what certain words mean.
Why You Should Engage A Preschool English Tutor
1. Help Students Clarify Doubts
Preschool English 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 Preschool 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 Preschool English Syllabus
The transition to kindergarten or preschool will no doubt be tough for Preschool 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 Preschool English Tutor, students will be able to make a smooth transition into Preschool life with their English 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 Preschool English students are left struggling in the language.
With the help of a Preschool English Tutor, students will be provided with additional guidance and exposure to the language. Preschool students will thus be able to gain mastery of English with this additional support.
4. Aid With Sentence Structuring
It is no secret that many Primary School English 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 Preschool English students tend to imbibe and use in their Preschool work.
A Top Preschool 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 Preschool English Tutor
Experience Teaching Preschool students
It is imperative that you check if the tutor you are interested in engaging has experience in teaching other Preschool 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 English.
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.
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.
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.
