Challenges Faced By Science Primary 6 Students

Difficulty in Application of Science Concepts

In Primary 6 Science, the questions would get increasingly advanced and notoriously tricky. As such, it is common for many students to commit careless mistakes and regurgitate their facts incorrectly. 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.

Unable to Finish Examination Paper On Time

The advanced syllabus of P6 Science may leave some students confused and overwhelmed, thus they face the problem of not being able to complete their paper on time due to the lack of comprehension with regard to the increasingly difficult Syllabus.

At MindFlex, our P6 Science Tutors believe in ensuring all students are prepared for the papers. As such, students that engage in P6 Science Tuition will receive highly effective tips and resources to better understand the Math content as well as to complete the paper timely!

Making Careless Mistakes

Along with the overwhelming amount and types of questions that appear in P6 Science examinations, students often make careless mistakes due to an oversight or misinterpretation of the questions. This results in the unnecessary loss of marks, thus preventing students from scoring well in the subject.

However, this problem can be mitigated with enough understanding of the content as well as sufficient practice of test papers to get students prepared in an examination setting. At MindFlex’s Best Primary 6 Science Tuition, our qualified tutors will ensure that students are adequately prepared with the relevant knowledge and skill sets to prevent making careless mistakes in the future!

Lagging Behind on Science Curriculum

At P6 Science, the inclusion of many new topics will cause some students, who are still struggling to grasp the basic scientific concepts, to lag behind other students. With these students lagging behind, it may cause them to feel demotivated and thus score badly for their Science papers.

However, there is a solution for students who are struggling in P6 Science – that is to engage in the Best P6 Science Tuition in Singapore at affordable rates! Under MindFlex, we are home to many qualified and experienced Primary 6 Science Tutors that are willing to provide their 100% to teach students the concepts that they are unsure of, so that students can once again catch up with the Syllabus along with their peers!

Why You Should Engage A Primary 6 Science Tutor

Benefits of Hiring Science Tuition

1. Help Students Clarify Doubts

At Primary 6 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 6 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 and do well in their PSLE.

2. Aid in PSLE Preparation

The Primary 6 year is a crucial year for students as they are required to sit for their PSLE. This might result in increased anxieties and worries amongst both parents and students, as they are worried about the student’s grasp of the Science subject.

With a Primary 6 Science Tutor, students will be provided close guidance on the Primary 6 syllabus, and are able to provide targeted practices, mock tests and extra resources which will definitely help with the student’s PSLE preparation.

3. Tackle Student’s Weaknesses

Students might find it hard to correct mistakes or misconceptions without guidance from a qualified teacher/tutor. Furthermore, given how fast-paced lessons are in school, their school teachers may not be able to pay close attention to the student’s learning process, and the student’s weaknesses or misconceptions may easily go unnoticed by their school teacher.

Hence, it is important to engage a Primary 6 Science Tutor, especially since it is an important year with the national examinations coming up. With a Primary 6 Science Tutor, students will be guided on their mistakes, and tutors can also provide close guidance on their weaknesses. In no time, tutors will be able to diagnose the student’s weak areas, and can then work on tackling those weaknesses and help students improve.

4. 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 6 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.

What To Look For in A Primary 6 Science Tutor

Currently Teaching/Have Taught Other P6 Students

It is imperative that you check if the tutor you are interested in engaging has experience in teaching other Primary 6 students. With such experience, they will then be familiar with the current P6 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 P6 Science to students of similar levels or have the personal academic achievements to teach P6 Science.

Qualifications

Top P6 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 P6 Science tutor suits your child’s needs.

Oftentimes, most qualified and highly-recommended P6 Science Tutors will have strong qualifications as well as a strong testimonial base, which can reassure you of their capability to teach your child.

Patience

It is extremely important that you engage a patient tutor who is able to explain the various P6 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 P6 Science tutor in order for your child to have a smooth Science learning journey.

Commitment

It is also very important to check if the P6 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.
