Challenges Faced By English PSLE Students
Dealing With Stress Sitting For A National Examination
Sitting for the first National Examination of their lives can be an extremely daunting experience for many PSLE English students. It is common to see many PSLE English students experiencing immense stress and anxiety due to the high-stakes nature of the PSLE.
PSLE English students are required to learn the new content in the P6 syllabus, as well as consistently revise the information that has been taught throughout the academic year. Moreover, students also have to have sufficient examination practice to ensure that they will be able to perform in the year-end PSLE English Examinations.
Overwhelmed By Heavier Workload
Most PSLE students may initially be shocked at the amount of work that they are expected to do in order to prepare for their PSLE English. With a much larger amount of content needed to be learnt, coupled with the pressure of sitting for a National Examination, many students tend to get overwhelmed by their new heavier workload.
As such, PSLE English could be overwhelming for students. As such, MindFlex recommends that PSLE students take the time to adjust to their new lifestyles so as to avoid getting burnt out when preparing for their PSLE English.
Poor Examination Performance
It is often a common sight to see PSLE English students study hard for their various internal assessments and tests, but end up scoring poor results. Unfortunately, this is a result of poor examination performance, meaning that the work and revision that PSLE English students put in does not translate into good examination results.
Here at MindFlex, we recommend that PSLE English students complete their revision and practice papers under timed conditions and in a simulated examination environment, so as to ensure that they are able to perform in their actual PSLE examinations.
Difficulties Writing Coherent Essays
PSLE students often struggle the most with their Paper 1 Narrative Writing essay. This could be due to many factors such as weak grammar, inappropriate use of vocabulary and an incoherent line of argument.
Here at MindFlex, we recommend that PSLE students read extensively to expose themselves to a wide variety of narrative styles, tones, and sentence structures. We believe that this will be extremely helpful in helping students to hone their essay writing skills for the PSLE English Examination.
Why You Should Engage A PSLE English Tutor
1. Help Students Clarify Doubts
PSLE 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 many classes and students. This thus makes it extremely difficult for students to consult teachers for individual help and guidance.
A committed PSLE 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 PSLE English Syllabus
PSLE English can be a huge source of stress for many students. Students are required to revise their work and learn new PSLE English content, all while ensuring that they are getting sufficient practice.
With the help of a PSLE English Tutor, students will be able to have a pillar of support in their preparation for the PSLE English Examinations.
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 PSLE English students are left struggling in the language.
With the help of a PSLE English Tutor, students will be provided with additional guidance and exposure to the language. PSLE 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 PSLE 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 PSLE English students tend to imbibe and use in their academic work.
A Top PSLE 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 PSLE English Tutor
Experience Teaching PSLE English Students
It is imperative that you check if the tutor you are interested in engaging has experience in teaching other PSLE 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 PSLE 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, the majority of highly-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.
