Importance of Primary 3 Tuition

At Primary 3 level, the syllabus starts to get more complicated, resulting in more parents seeking for Primary 3 Tuition for their child. Moreover, the introduction of the Science subject makes it all the more distracting and difficult for your child to cope with.

While it may be difficult to cope with such a drastic change in lifestyle, it is still extremely crucial that your child remains on top of the Primary 3 Curriculum. This is because Primary School is a highly important phase of your child’s life.

As such, getting a good Primary 3 Tutor is important, as a committed and qualified Primary 3 Tutor will be able to help instil passion for learning, as well as to help the student improve.

Challenges Faced By Primary 3 Students

Adjustment To New Syllabus

Primary 3 students face the struggle of dealing with an additional subject to study, Science. This could cause students to feel stressed and anxious about coping with their new heavier workload, as well as adjustment issues as they learn the brand-new content in the subject.

As such, it is likely that students will need additional guidance and time to adjust to their new workload. To help your child through this difficult time, you could consider engaging a Primary 3 Tutor. With the guidance, P3 students will be more assured as they grapple with their new heavier workload.

Feeling overwhelmed by the Primary 3 curriculum

It is common knowledge that the Primary 3 curriculum is becoming increasingly difficult and rigorous for students. Being an extremely rigorous programme, many P3 students thus experience stress, and feel overwhelmed by the curriculum at this young age.

That is why we recommend that you engage a Top P3 Tutor as soon as possible, in order to lend a helping hand to your child as they take on this arduous journey. Your child will be more confident and assured, knowing that they have an extra pillar of support that they can rely on in their Primary 3 journey.

Increase in Distractions

As children advance up to the Primary 3 level, they could be facing more distractions from their academics. For instance, they could be beginning to join their school’s Co-Curricular Activities (CCA). While useful in providing a source of stress relief and holistic education, these CCAs do take up a significant portion of your child’s after-school hours. This leaves less time for revision.

Engaging a Top P3 Tutor could be helpful to maximise your child’s after-school time. The tutor will be able to help your child to focus on their schoolwork after school, and provide guidance and support as your child’s schedule gets more hectic.

Difficulty Speaking Up in Class

At this age, many Primary 3 Students tend to face difficulties speaking up or clarifying their doubts in class. This is especially true for P3 students who happen to have a more quiet or timid temperament, and is exacerbated by the large class sizes in schools which can be rather intimidating. Students may be afraid of being laughed at by their peers, and as a result do not speak up in class.

Here at MindFlex, we believe that it is very important that students voice out their concerns and doubts as soon as possible in order to create a smoother learning process. Furthermore, doing so will train these P3 students in their Communication Skills, which is a skill that needs to be trained as early as possible.

Why You Should Engage A Primary 3 Tutor

Benefits of Hiring GP Tuition

1. Gradually Ease Students into Syllabus

The Primary 3 syllabus is vastly different from that of the P2 Syllabus. This could potentially come as a shock for Primary 3 students when they first enter their new environment. The fast-paced environment in Primary School will have to be something that Primary 3 students still have to take time to adjust to.

With the help of MindFlex’s Top Primary 3 Tutors, students will be able to have an easier time assimilating into the Primary 3 culture and syllabus, as the Tutor will be available to provide dedicated guidance and help whenever the student runs into difficulties. The Primary 3 Tutor will also provide students with curated assignments and in-class practice questions in order to ease them into the syllabus.

2. Make Full Use of After-School Time

In Primary 3, students typically have extremely packed timetables due to their external commitments, family matters as well as the numerous enrichment lessons that their parents may enrol them in. Moreover, students will be beginning to partake in their school’s Co-Curricular Activities (CCA). As such, students may be too drained and exhausted to focus properly on their schoolwork and revision after their curriculum hours.

That is why MindFlex recommends engaging a Top P3 Tutor to help your child make proper use of their after-school hours. The extra lessons every week will definitely be spent fruitfully clarifying doubts and revising content.

3. Aid Students in Clarifying Doubts

Some Primary 3 students might be too shy to speak up in class, in front of all their peers. Oftentimes, P3 students may fear that their peers would laugh at them for asking a basic or fundamental question, or simply may be too shy to raise their voices in class.

Here at MindFlex, our Patient and Committed P3 Tutors will provide their dedication and commitment to students, allowing them to clarify any doubts or misconceptions that might arise in a private 1-1 setting.

4. Provision of Additional Revision Resources

Oftentimes, it can be rather difficult for students or parents to procure their own Primary 3 revision resources on their own. These resources could include revision summary notes and additional practice papers, and are absolutely crucial to consolidate students’ learning.

With the help of a Top P3 Tutor, students will be provided with additional resources such as past-year practice papers and summary sheets in order to aid in their learning process, as well as supplement the materials that they are provided with in school.

What To Look For in A Primary 3 Tutor

Prior Experience in Teaching Primary 3 Students

The Primary 3 syllabus is incredibly different from that of the Primary 2 Curriculum. As such, it is very important to select a Primary 3 Tutor that has experience in teaching Primary 3 students so that they will be well-versed with the Primary 3 syllabus.

In addition, by selecting a tutor with prior experience with teaching Primary 3 students, you will be rest assured that they will be able to help ease your child into the Primary 3 curriculum and syllabus.

Ability to Provide Additional Resources

At Primary 3 level, it is probably difficult to find reliable and recent resources for your child. Hence, by choosing a Primary 3 Tutor that is able to provide additional resources, you can save time on hunting for resources and leave it to your child’s Primary 3 Tutor!

The ability to provide additional resources also means that the tutor has spent time and effort curating these resources – which is also a marker of their commitment and dedication. Hence, when searching for a Primary 3 Tutor, it would be great to look out for tutors who are able to provide their own self-collated resources.

 Patience in Teaching

Teaching Primary 3 students is definitely a highly difficult and demanding task, as tutors have to struggle to get their attention as well as to get them to listen and pay attention. This could prove to test tutors’ patience. Hence, it is important to engage a Primary 3 Tutor that is patient enough.

Of course, this might be difficult to judge or determine at first glance. As such, it might be useful to request for a trial lesson, and through the trial lesson, you may then sit in and observe how the Primary 3 Tutor handles the child during the entirety of the lesson.

Academic and Teaching Qualifications

When engaging a Primary 3 Tutor, it is important to select one that has stellar academic results as well as the relevant teaching qualifications. For example, it might be better to pick a tutor that has graduated from a 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.

Such qualifications are crucial in ensuring that the tutor is qualified enough to teach your child, especially at Primary 3 level when building a strong foundation is extremely important.
