Importance of P2 English Tuition

As students make the jump from Primary 1 to Primary 2 English, it is extremely important that they continue to build a strong foundation in the language. Seeing how important it is to be proficient in the English in Singapore, MindFlex recommends that P2 English students remain on top of the curriculum at all times.

Being proficient in English is important as it allows Primary 2 students to hone their skills as budding communicators. As students take on more complex sentence structures and expand their vocabulary, it is salient that they consistently practise the language and reinforce their learning.

It is common for many P2 English students to struggle to cope with the P2 English Curriculum. As such, engaging a Primary 2 English Tutor with MindFlex will help to ease their burden.

Challenges Faced By English P2 Students

Leap In Syllabus to Primary 2

Primary 2 is where the curriculum begins to ramp up in intensity, after the ‘honeymoon year’ in Primary 1. Getting used to learning in a structured school environment is likely to take a toll on Primary 2 students, and could cause feelings of stress and anxiety.

No doubt, Primary 2 English students will face difficulties adjusting to the new content that they are required to learn, and may struggle to absorb the new knowledge as a result. We recommend that P2 English students consistently revise to stay on top of the curriculum.

Facing Trouble Expanding Their Vocabulary

At the Primary 2 level, students will still be in the midst of learning new words and expanding their vocabulary. In addition, accurate spelling will also be heavily emphasised in the P2 English curriculum, which could prove to be an immense challenge for them compared to P1 English, where fewer and less complex words are taught.

Moreover, not being able to form proper sentences has trickle-down effects on both their written and oral communication. This means that all components of the English Language examinations can be affected in the future as well.

Not Understanding Basic Sentence Structures

At the Primary 2 level, some students may also struggle making proper use of the Subject, Verb and Agreement structuring of sentences, and end up forming sentences that are grammatically inaccurate. This is especially so if students do not make an effort to read widely and practice speaking in full sentences. This will have adverse effects on their English in the long term.

That is why MindFlex recommends that students make a concerted effort to expose themselves to a wide variety of different texts, in order to learn about the wide variety of sentence structures present in the English language.

Unable To Complete Examination Papers On Time

For Primary 2 English, students will begin to undertake tests and examinations, and experience completing papers, including essay writing and comprehension questions, within a specific duration. This may be overwhelming to many P2 English students who are still getting used to the new school environment and the examination setting.

As such, MindFlex highly encourages students to regularly attempt Primary 2 English past test papers in order for them to better expose and prepare themselves for any English examinations that they face in Primary 2.

Why You Should Engage A P2 English Tutor

Benefits of Hiring English Tuition

1. Help Students Clarify Doubts

Primary 2 English students may not be willing to clarify their doubts in class, as they may fear being ridiculed by their peers. Moreover, teachers may not be available all the time 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 Primary 2 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 Primary School English Syllabus

The transition from Primary 1 English to Primary 2 English will definitely be tough for Primary 2 English students. It is to be expected that the increase in intensity and rigour of the curriculum will be a source of stress for students.

However, with the help of a Primary 2 English Tutor, students will be able to make a smooth transition into primary 2 school life with their English Tutor serving as a pillar of support in their P2 English journey.

3. Help Students Master English Vocabulary

English can be an immensely difficult language to master. Given the complexity of its sentence structures, grammar rules and unfamiliar phonics, it is no wonder that many Primary 2 English students are left struggling when they learn the language.

With the help of a Primary 2 English Tutor, however, students will be provided with additional guidance and exposure to the language. Primary 2 students will thus be able to gain mastery of English with this additional support.

4. Aid with Sentence Structuring

Many Primary 2 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 Primary 2 English students tend to imbibe and use in their academic work.

A Top Primary 2 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 P2 English Tutor

Experience Teaching Primary 2 Students

It is imperative that you check if the tutor you are interested in engaging has experience in teaching other Primary 2 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.

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.

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.

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.

Testimonials from P2 English Students

Si Yi, the tutor that I engaged with from MindFlex, has done a good job at teaching my son Benjamin. She always comes to lessons prepared and always has different ways to engage Benjamin. Si Yi also ensures that she tries to push Benjamin beyond what is taught in school, which I really appreciate. Looking forward to continuing English Tuition lessons with Si Yi!
