Challenges Faced By Maths P1 Students
Unfamiliar and Foreign Syllabus
A common challenge faced by P1 Maths students is the leap in the syllabus from Kindergarten to Primary 1. With the significant differences and numerous uncertainties that students face, this may result in a lot of anxieties and unfamiliarity as Primary students struggle to keep up with the fast-paced Primary School Syllabus in the long run. Hence, students will definitely require a lot of time and practice in order to assimilate into the Primary school environment and become well-versed in the Math subject in P1.
However, this can easily be made easier by seeking help in the form of a Primary 1 Maths Tutor who will ensure that students receive additional materials and tips that can make their P1 Maths learning much easier.
Inability to Ask Questions and Clarify Doubts
With the transition to a new environment as well as the encounter of an unfamiliar syllabus, students would naturally be hesitant or afraid to ask questions or clarify doubts in the class. In addition, P1 Maths students may not know how to approach their Primary School teachers to help or clarify, which thus results in an accumulation of burning questions and uncertainties that are left unanswered.

Before starting on tuition lessons with the tutor, my daughter has always hated Maths. We have tried many Maths Tutors, but all of them were unable to help my child or get her to pay attention. But with the current Primary 1 tutor from MindFlex, Ling Ling has taken a greater interest in the language. Thank you so much!
