Challenges Faced By A Level GP Students

Stressed over A Level Examinations

The A Level year is extremely crucial and important, resulting in elevated stress levels in most A Level students. With the national examinations rapidly approaching, students are expected to already have a firm grasp of the A Level GP syllabus and skills, and are expected to continue building upon these skills and content knowledge in order to do well in their examinations. Furthermore, A Level students are also burdened with the challenging curriculums of other subjects.

The stress caused by the A Levels is indeed challenging and tricky to overcome, but with the help of an A Level GP Tutor, such worries and anxieties can definitely be reduced. With a good A Level GP Tutor, students will be guided on various techniques, skills and content required to ace their A Level GP examinations.

Unable to Write Well

Another challenge faced by most A Level GP students is the inability to write well. Writing in GP encompasses both foundational English skills such as proper Grammar and Vocabulary, as well as their ability to frame their points and arguments in coherent and concise manners. This, however, is a challenge for most. A Level GP students often find it hard to put their argument forth in an orderly fashion, resulting in haphazard writing and ordering of points.

With an A Level GP Tutor, however, students will have additional guidance in mastering the various essay-writing techniques, allowing them to build upon their GP writing skills. Furthermore, with A Level GP Tuition in Singapore, students will also be provided with close guidance and instantaneous feedback, enabling them to improve in no time!

Time Management

One of the most common issues faced by A Level GP students is the inability to complete their GP paper on time – especially in their Paper 2 AQ. This is largely due to insufficient practice and lack of exposure to the various question types, resulting in them being unaware of how to tackle the questions during examination. As such, students often hand in incomplete papers, or hand in subpar answers.

With an A Level GP Tutor, however, students will be given weekly practices and exposure to other schools’ papers and past year papers to help hone their GP examination skills, allowing them to be more confident when tackling their GP examinations.

Unable to Form Arguments

A key portion of the A Level GP exam requirement is the ability to form coherent arguments in response to the question prompts. Here, students are also expected to synthesise arguments based on their knowledge of the topic and their ability to write well – all of which requires a strong command of both English and GP. Without the ability to form arguments well, students will often find their Essays to be hovering around average scores.

The ability to form arguments requires a large amount of practice and hard work, with the support of a qualified mentor. With an A Level GP Tutor, students will receive qualified guidance in tackling their weak areas. Tutors can provide students with tips on forming arguments and arguing their points, and provide instantaneous feedback that can greatly benefit the student.

Why You Should Engage An A Level GP Tutor

Benefits of Hiring GP Tuition

1. Prepare Students for A Levels

The A Level GP examination is an important examination that students have to sit for at the end of their first year. Given the high weightage of the examination on students’ future, many students will face increased anxieties and worries as the A Level GP examination approaches.

With an A Level GP Tutor, he/she will be able to provide close guidance and support for the student. With an additional pair of hands to help, students will definitely be more at ease during their A Level GP preparation, and will be more confident in tackling the examination.

2. Help Students Achieve Content Mastery

A Level GP requires students to have a firm grasp on a wide range of content from varying topics. As such, students are expected to master a wide breadth and depth of content, issues and arguments in order to supplement their quality of answers during examinations. This, however, is difficult for many A Level students, who are simply unaware of how to go about achieving such content mastery.

However, with the help of an A Level GP Tutor, students will get supplementary resources and trained guidance from their GP Tutor on the key issues to focus on as well as ways to improve on their understanding of the content.

3. Provide Additional Resources and Materials

A crucial aspect of doing well in A Level GP is having a good grasp of the key issues and arguments of topics tested in GP. As such, students are expected to have a firm grasp on a large variety of content, which might be difficult if students do not have the correct resources and materials.

With an A Level GP Tutor, students will be able to receive resources in the form of summary notes and content banks. Experienced A Level GP Tutors will also have their resources of collated or self-written notes, which will definitely come in handy when preparing for the A Level GP examinations.

4. Help Students Clarify Doubts

At A Level standard, the fast-paced lessons might leave students no time to clarify their doubts. Furthermore, given the hectic schedules of their school teachers, finding additional time to help students might be tough. Hence, students might leave lessons with a lot of doubts with no place to clarify their misconceptions.

With an A Level GP Tutor, however, 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.

What To Look For in An A Level GP Tutor

Academic and Teaching Qualifications

When engaging an A Level GP 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 GP or English 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.

Furthermore, given how important the A Level year is, you’d definitely not want to engage an inexperienced tutor as it will be a waste of time and money for you and your child.

 Patience in Teaching

Teaching A Level students is no easy feat as tutors have to struggle to get their attention as well as to get them to listen and pay attention. Furthermore, during the A Level year, students might be extremely stressed out – hence, it is important to engage an A Level Tutor that is patient enough to continuously engage the student and clear any doubts they might have.

While this might be difficult to judge or determine at first glance, it might be useful to request for a trial lesson, and through the trial lesson, you can sit in and observe how the A Level Tutor handles the child during the entirety of the lesson.

 Ability to Provide Additional Resources

It might be difficult to find good A Level GP resources that will be able to help students. Hence, by choosing an A Level GP Tutor that is able to provide additional resources, you can save time on hunting for resources and leave it up to your A Level GP Tutor!

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

Ability to Help Students in A Levels

During the A Level year, most students will be extremely stressed out with the upcoming examinations. Hence, it is important to find an A Level GP 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 an A GP Chinese Tutor that has experience in helping A Level students, or have testimonials from A Level students who have achieved good grades in their A Level GP.

Testimonials from A Level GP Students

I started GP Tuition with my tutor Ms Chloe at the end of my first year in JC, and I have witnessed a lot of improvements since. Ms Chloe is knowledgeable, and has a lot of experience teaching A Level students, so I could trust my GP when I am taught by her. I am now more confident in my GP A Levels.

Kylie Pang
A Level Student from Saint Andrew’s JC

My GP Tutor, James, has been so helpful! I started JC1 GP on a bad foot, and was getting S or U in my first few examinations. It was not until before Prelims when I finally decided to get a tutor. Although I had very little time before the A Levels, Jeremy was still willing to help me.

Tan Yi Yang
A Level Student from Yishun Innova JC

I was struggling a lot with GP in JC, and with the A Levels coming up soon, I decided to start GP Tuition with a tutor recommended to me by my cousin. My tutor Mitchell was very patient and experienced, and he would patiently go through the course content and give me extra resources.

Seth Cheng
A Level Student from Eunoia JC

Mr Foo, my GP Tutor, was so nice and genuine! Because of my hectic schedules, I had to often change the timing for my tuition, which he was always very nice about. His lessons were also very well-planned and helpful, and I could genuinely feel myself improving a lot.
