Importance of Primary 6 Tuition

This crucial year may cause heightened levels of stress and anxiety due to the increased pressure to do well in the PSLE. As such, it may be helpful for Primary 6 students to have additional forms of support, in the form of a Primary 6 Tutor.

Furthermore, the numerous resources online to help your child cope with PSLE stress is likely to be insufficient to help your child during this crucial period. Your child will definitely benefit from a dedicated tutor that can provide 1-1 coaching and assistance.

Challenges Faced By Primary 6 Students

Overwhelmed with Stress

The Primary 6 year is extremely important for students as it is the year of their national examinations. This will definitely result in significantly higher stress levels in P6 students, which could potentially affect their ability to perform well during examinations.

Here at MindFlex, we believe that one way to tackle heightened stress levels is engaging with a Primary 6 Tutor! A P6 tutor will effectively help to target the student’s weaknesses, listen to the problems they face in the subject, as well as to help the students improve.This will ensure that P6 students will be able to confidently sit for the PSLE at the end of the year.

Stress sitting for the PSLE Examinations

Sitting for the PSLE can be an extremely daunting experience for many PSLE students. It is common to see many PSLE students experiencing immense stress and anxiety due to the high-stakes nature of the PSLE.

PSLE students are required to learn the new content in the PSLE 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.

Increase in After-School Commitments

As children advance up to the Primary 6 level, they could be facing more distractions from their academics. For example, their school’s Co-Curricular Activities (CCA) will take up a lot of their time. 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 P6 work and PSLE preparation.

As a result, many Primary 6 students are left feeling drained and exhausted after school, and may not have the time or energy to catch up on their revision and school homework. This is likely to put immense stress and pressure on them, which would have adverse effects on their well-being in the long run.

Leap in Syllabus

It is common knowledge that the Primary 6 curriculum is much more demanding than the Primary 5 Curriculum. As P6 face the PSLE at the end of the year, the workload is thus expected to increase significantly. As such, it is a common sight to see many P6 students experiencing stress and feeling overwhelmed by the curriculum at this young age.

That is why we recommend that you engage a Top P6 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 6 journey.

Why You Should Engage A Primary 6 Tutor

Benefits of Hiring GP Tuition

1. Help Students Clarify Doubts

At the Primary 6 level, students might not be well-adjusted to the competitive Upper Primary environment as well as the teaching methods of their Primary 6 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 the PSLE with uncleared doubts

However, with the help of a dedicated P6 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.

2. Train Students in Time Management

As P6 students gear up to sit for the PSLE, the examination papers will start to get more difficult and with more stringent time constraints. Students are expected to complete their P6 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 P6 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.

3. Gain Crucial Examination Skills

The PSLE often requires students to apply their knowledge to unfamiliar real-world contexts. As such, no matter how well-versed P6 students are in the textbook content, they will still be unable to ace their PSLE if they are unable to correctly apply their content knowledge to their examination questions.

Therefore, having a P6 Tutor is thus useful as tutors will be able to teach crucial examination skills to students. This will ensure that students will be able to make proper use of their Primary 6 content knowledge in examinations, and ace their P6 Examinations.

4. Provision of Additional Revision Resources

Oftentimes, it can be rather difficult for students or parents to procure their own Primary 6 revision resources on their own. These resources could include revision summary notes and additional practice papers, and are absolutely crucial to consolidate students’ learning.

MindFlex’s Top P6 Tutors have gathered numerous useful resources ranging from summarised notes, mind maps to top schools’ past-year papers. These are sure to aid in P6 students’ learning process, as well as supplement the materials that they are provided with in school.

What To Look For in A Primary 6 Tutor

Ability to Help Students in PSLE

At Primary 6 level, most students will be extremely stressed out with the upcoming PSLE. Hence, it is important to find a Primary 6 Tutor that is well-equipped with the relevant teaching experience and abilities to help ease students’ worries through exam-focused teaching techniques.

For instance, it might be better to find a Primary 6 Tutor that has extensive experience helping Primary 6 students, or a tutor that has a strong testimonial base from multiple Primary 6 students who have achieved good grades in their PSLE.

Patience in Teaching

Many P6 students are extremely stressed about their PSLE, and may thus be distracted in lessons. As such, teaching Primary 6 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. As such, it is important to engage a Primary 6 Tutor that is patient enough to continuously engage the Primary 6 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 6 Tutor handles the child during the entirety of the lesson.

Ability to Provide Additional Resources

At Primary 6 level, it is probably difficult to find reliable and recent resources for your child. Hence, by choosing a Primary 6 Tutor that is able to provide additional resources, you can save time on hunting for resources and leave it to your child’s Primary 6 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 6 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 6 Tutor for your child, it is extremely important that you 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 6 level when students are preparing for their PSLE.
