Challenges Faced By Primary 4 Students

Hectic Schedules and Timetables

As children advance up to the Primary 4 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 of their P4 work.

Engaging a Top P4 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.

Leap in Syllabus

It is common knowledge that the Primary 4 curriculum is much more demanding than the Primary 3 Curriculum. As students make the transition from Lower Primary to Upper Primary, the workload is thus expected to increase significantly. As such, it is a common sight to see many P4 students thus experience stress, and feel overwhelmed by the curriculum at this young age.

That is why we recommend that you engage a Top P4 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 4 and Upper Primary journey.

Difficulty Speaking Up in Class

Many Primary 4 Students tend to face difficulties speaking up or clarifying their doubts in class. This is especially true for P4 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 P4 students in their Communication Skills, which is a highly crucial and sought-after skill in the workplace.

Decreased Motivation Levels

The transition from P3 to P4 is highly difficult, and the learning curve for your child is likely to be extremely steep. Moreover, the rigour of the curriculum and the standard of the school work will be much more difficult and demanding. If your child is lagging behind their peers, they could be unmotivated to catch up as they see it as too difficult to do.

Therefore, MindFlex recommends engaging a Top P4 Tutor for your child. A P4 Tutor will be able to provide students with sufficient support and guidance, as well as on-the-spot feedback. This will motivate students to remain on top of the P4 Curriculum.

Why You Should Engage A Primary 4 Tutor

Benefits of Hiring English Tuition

1. Help Students Clarify Doubts

In school, some Primary 4 students might be too shy to speak up in class, in front of all their peers. Oftentimes, P4 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 P4 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.

2. Provision of Additional Revision Resources

Oftentimes, it can be rather difficult for students or parents to procure their own Primary 4 revision resources on their own. These resources could include revision summary notes and additional practice papers, and are absolutely crucial to consolidate students’ learning.

However, with the help of a Top P4 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.

3. Help to Clear Misconceptions

At the Primary 4 level, students might not be well-adjusted to the competitive Upper Primary environment as well as the teaching methods of their Primary 4 school teachers. As such, students might not be willing to clarify any doubts with their teachers. Instead, many students may let their doubts pile up without clearing them, and end up sitting for their examinations with uncleared doubts.

However, with the help of a dedicated P4 Tutor, they will provide 100% attention and guidance to students. Students will be able to clarify their doubts or misconceptions in a private 1-1 setting.

4. Train Students in Time Management

As students make the transition to Upper Primary, the examination papers will start to get more difficult and with more stringent time constraints. Students are expected to complete their P4 Examination papers under immense pressure and in a short amount of time. This can prove to be rather challenging for students.

As such, engaging a P4 Tutor will definitely be useful for students, as the tutor will be able to let students practise under timed conditions, thus conditioning them to complete their Examination papers in time.

What To Look For in A Primary 4 Tutor

Prior Experience in Teaching Primary 4 students

The Primary 4 syllabus is incredibly different from that of the Primary 3 Curriculum, especially with the shift from Lower Primary to Upper Primary. As such, it is very important to select a Primary 4 Tutor that has experience in teaching Primary 4 students so that they will be well-versed with the Primary 4 syllabus.

In addition, by selecting a tutor with prior experience with teaching Primary 4 students, you will be rest assured that they will be able to help ease your child into the Primary 4 and Upper Primary curriculum.

Patience in Teaching

Teaching Primary 4 students is definitely a struggle, as tutors have to struggle to get their attention as well as to get them to listen and pay attention. Moreover, as the syllabus gets progressively harder as the students advance from Lower Primary to Upper Primary, students may feel less motivated and less interested in the subject. As such, it is important to engage a Primary 4 Tutor that is patient enough to continuously engage the Primary 4 student.

In order to gauge the patience of the tutor, you may request for a trial lesson. Through the trial lesson, you can sit in and observe how the Primary 4 Tutor handles the child during the entirety of the lesson.

Ability to Provide Additional Resources

At Primary 4 level, it is probably difficult to find reliable and recent resources for your child. Hence, by choosing a Primary 4 Tutor that is able to provide additional resources, you can save time on hunting for resources and leave it to your child’s Primary 4 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 4 Tutor, it would be great to look out for tutors who are able to provide their own self-collated resources.

Academic and Teaching Qualifications

When engaging a Primary 4 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 4 level when building a strong foundation is extremely important.
