About PSLE English Tuition Singapore
While most children in Singapore are comfortable in English and speak it well, many still struggle at the PSLE English paper.
BrightMinds Education provides an Award Winning PSLE Course and is a MOE Registered Tuition Centre. We provide both PSLE English Tuition and PSLE Math Tuition to students.
It’s been our years of experience that students are quick to learn PSLE Math Heuristic Concepts. So much so that we can only marvel at how some of our students solve some of the most complex PSLE Math Questions with ease.
Furthermore, students are equally adept at solving PSLE Science Questions. It’s like they have a natural affinity for math and science.
However, when it comes to English, our students lag behind as there are endless vocabulary words, grammar tenses and so on. That is why at our PSLE Tuition Singapore, we spend a lot of time on improving their English.
Here’s what happens at a typical PSLE Camp at BrightMinds.
There are five main areas we focus on during the PSLE Tuition as far as the English paper is concerned.
2. Oral Tips and Techniques – Singaporean students are very good at written English, but not so adept at verbal tests. That is why, we teach them simple oral techniques, so that they are able to hold their own in a conversation confidently.
3. Synthesis and Cloze Passages – We have a singular focus on improving the child’s grammar and vocabulary during the PSLE English Tuition. In particular, the kids are given several tips on cloze passages and synthesis. They will also practise many cloze passages and synthesis.
4. Comprehension – Generally, we find that most students lack the ability to interpret and infer the information they receive in the form of text. That is why our tutors spend a lot of time on improving their comprehension skills, deduction and inference skills. By the end of our PSLE English Tuition Singapore, your child will be able to go through passages in the English paper quickly, infer and answer the questions asked accurately.
5. Time Management – Time management is crucial in the English examination. It’s so easy for children to get stuck when answering some of the more complex questions, hence this is why we teach them to set time limits. They learn how to apportion time for each section in the English paper, how much time to allocate for editing and checking, and so on.
