Challenges Faced By Primary 5 Science Students

Difficulty in Transitioning to Primary 5

In Primary 5, students will be introduced to more advanced topics that will increase the difficulty in the subject. Compared to Primary 3 and 4 Science, Primary 5 Science will be much more advanced and demanding. As such, students may face the struggle in coping with the transition from the previous level. In Primary 5, students will be exposed to questions that require critical high-order processing and analytical skills.

As such, there is no doubt that with the introduction of new topics and demands, Primary 5 students will face difficulties in adjusting to the changes of the new content and topics. In order to prevent the students from feeling too overwhelmed, it is advised for them to constantly revise the curriculum.

Difficulty in Clarifying Doubts

The one important rule in learning is to ask questions when in doubt, that way any concerns that students may have can be cleared to prevent similar mistakes from being committed again. In class, many students tend to avoid the idea of asking questions or clarifying their doubts either due to shyness or fear. The thought of speaking up in class may seem intimidating to many. As such, students tend to leave their doubts to themselves or wait till upcoming tests before clarifying them, which can be too late.

In order for students to see improvements in their grades, it is important for them to constantly ask questions and clear the things that they do not understand to their teachers. Primary 5 Science Tutors in MindFlex are highly competent and experienced in answering questions that the students would have regarding the subject. Hence, it is assured that with our tutors, the students will have a higher chance of improving in their academics and do well in Primary 5 Science.

Difficulty in Application of Science Concepts

In Primary 5 Science, the inclusion of new topics and scientific concepts may appear overwhelming for some Primary school students. Even with a good amount of knowledge in Science, students still face the difficulty in applying the theories that they have learnt into the answers.

With some questions being strategically deceptive, students may provide answers that are not relevant and as such losing marks. Our Primary 6 Tutors will provide students with countless practices and advice to help students in their application skills. This way when the examination approaches, they are able to feel more confident in their skills and do well in the paper.

Inability to Understand Science Concepts and Syllabus

Science is a subject that involves a lot of concepts and facts. As such, students may sometimes face the struggle in doing well in Primary 5 Science. Since it is a subject that continuously includes more topics and concepts as one’s primary school journey progresses, students may not be able to understand what has been taught in class easily and may even feel lost.

As such, it would definitely be helpful for students to receive the necessary academic aid so that they are better able to cope with the subject. In MindFlex, our Primary School 5 Tutors will provide students with step-by-step explanations during lessons. This way, students will be able to digest the information they have learn.

Why You Should Engage A Primary 5 Science Tutor

Benefits of Hiring Science Tuition

1. Help Students with Tough Concepts

For students who aren’t given the correct guidance and resources, they might find it hard to grasp tough concepts, especially as the Primary 5 Science syllabus gets progressively harder. With continued uncertainty in Science concepts, it will definitely take a toll on the young student’s motivation to learn Science.

With a Primary 5 Science Tutor, students will receive additional guidance, allowing them to get their doubts clarified. The tutor will also be able to work on the student’s weaknesses, allowing them to grasp tough concepts more easily. Furthermore, with the effective lessons carried out by the Primary 5 Science Tutor, students will definitely have an easier time grasping tough concepts in school.

2. Reinforce Learning Done in School

Often, the teaching done in school is extremely fast-paced, resulting in students having a hard time catching up or understanding the content taught in school. If this continues snowballing, students will start to feel unmotivated and undetermined to learn.

With a good Primary 5 Science Tutor, students will be provided additional guidance. Tutors will be able to go through the content learnt in school, clarifying any doubts students might have. Through this, students will have a better grasp of the learning done in school.

3. Help Students Clarify Doubts

At Primary 5 level, students might be too shy to clarify their doubts in front of their peers in school for fear of being mocked. Furthermore, teachers in school might be too busy, making it hard for students to seek after-class consultation. As time progresses, these doubts can snowball, resulting in irreversible misconceptions that can affect the student’s understanding of Science.

Hence, it is crucial to engage a Primary 5 Science Tutor to provide students with a safe space to clarify their doubts and ask questions. Furthermore, with small-group/1-to-1 Science Tuition, students can also clarify their doubts immediately during lessons, and will receive instantaneous feedback to help them improve.

4. Instill Passion for Science

Science is an extremely interesting subject that is useful in our daily lives. By learning the various concepts and topics, such as life cycles, plants and diversity, students will then have a greater appreciation for the life around them. Learning Science also serves as a way to broaden students’ horizons.

With a Primary 5 Science Tutor, students will experience first-hand the fun that Science can bring. With carefully thought-out lesson plans and teaching methods, the Primary 5 Science Tutor will ensure that students learn not only the Science concepts, but important life skills, allowing them to gain a deeper appreciation for learning Science.

What To Look For in A Primary 5 Science Tutor

Are they currently teaching/taught other Primary 5 students

It is imperative that you check if the tutor you are interested in engaging has experience in teaching other Primary 5 students. With such experience, they will then be familiar with the current P5 Science syllabus and common examination practices. It is thus important that you ensure that the tutor has been teaching students of similar levels.

MindFlex also recommends that you choose tutors who have experience in teaching P5 Science to students of similar levels or have the personal academic achievements to teach P5 Science.

Patience

It is extremely important that you engage a patient tutor who is able to explain the various P5 Science concepts in a patient manner. With a patient Science tutor, students will be more likely to clarify their doubts and misconceptions with the tutor, since they are not too daunted or intimidated to do so.

The patience of the tutor is an immensely important factor when selecting a tutor. MindFlex recommends that you engage a patient P5 Science tutor in order for your child to have a smooth Science learning journey.

Qualifications

Top P5 Science Tutors in Singapore will naturally be highly qualified and be highly-recommended. We recommend for you to check if they have been recommended by past parents or have any testimonials from parents and students, in order to gauge if the P5 Science tutor suits your child’s needs.

Oftentimes, most qualified and highly-recommended Science Tutors will have strong qualifications as well as a strong testimonial base, which can reassure you of their capability to teach your child.

Commitment

It is also very important to check if the P5 Science tutor that you select is able to commit to your time slot in the long term. This is important, as it would definitely be a pity for the tutor to build a strong rapport with your child, and then subsequently cancel future lessons due to clashes in your schedules.

Here at MindFlex, we recommend that you check with your tutor on whether they are able to commit in the long-term in order to avoid disappointment and the disruption of your child’s learning.

Testimonials from Primary 5 Students

Science has always been my worst and most dreaded subject. When I scored poor results for my mid-year exams, my parents decided to get me a Science tutor through MindFlex. My tutor is patient, and makes an effort to go through all of my mistakes that I make in my school homework and practice papers. Thank you Mdm Lim for helping me improve my Science results!

Ashley Crew 
P5 Student from Ai Tong Pri

In school, I was always lagging behind in the Science lessons, and I could not understand the topics taught as fast as my classmates. My tutor Ms Sharon always helps to explain the topics that I do not understand in class, and will also help me to summarise the main points in each chapter. Thanks to Ms Sharon, my Science grades have improved so much!

Shawn Yeap
P5 Student from Anglo-Chinese School (Pri)

Thank you Mr Lim for teaching me so well and helping me to score an ‘A’ in my end-of-year SA2 Science exam! At the start of the year, I did not understand any of the Science topics taught in school, and was too scared to ask for help. After my parents got me a Science tutor, I now understand all the topics taught in school! Thank you Mr Lim and thank you MindFlex!

Jonathan Chia
P5 Student from Fuhua Pri

Science lessons in school were so stressful for me as I did not understand the topics taught. I even struggled with the most basic topics like the water cycle. With Miss Lew’s lessons, I have managed to understand all the topics, even the difficult concepts like magnetism! I am now more confident that I will do well in the year-end Science exams. I am so glad that I met Miss Lew through MindFlex.
