Singapore education system has been considered as one of the most successful systems in the entire world. The system is proved to be very reliable and aims at excellence for its students by offering a wide range of choices in preschool, primary, secondary and tertiary education. Thus, the education system in Singapore has a good reputation and parents are required to register about a year in advance to enroll their child into a primary school in Singapore. Having a well-established system, it creates a demand and rigorous sets of syllabuses in schools.
Singapore’s education system, as we all know it, is demanding and competitive in nature. These characteristics are often perceived as ‘too much pressure,’ however if we turn them around into a positive perspective:
- Demand acts as a driving force to push ourselves beyond our limits
- Competition plays its role in ensuring that we are always improving ourselves as an individual
If education can be described through an analogy, it’s just like building a house. The initial groundwork is critical in ensuring a smooth construction of an upright and stable house in a long run. Likewise, for education, building a strong foundation at a young age will equip our children with the necessary knowledge and tools to get through the lifelong school of life.
At a very young age of 7, primary school education is compulsory for all Singaporean kids and it consists of a four-year foundation course (Primary 1 to Primary 4 )and a two-year orientation stage (Primary 5 & 6). Primary school is also a place where the foundation of their learning habits is formed such as their handwriting, their abilities to pick up new information as well as higher level skills (abstract reasoning and time planning).
Are you starting to worry and would like to give your child a head-start and boost their education? A good foundation is essential and will work wonders in shaping a child’s learning abilities and core understanding of the subjects in school. This could be achieved through effective English, Maths, Science, and Chinese primary school tuition. It can easily determine the turns in a child’s education journey. Especially during the course from Primary 1 to Primary 6, parents should ensure that their child are being well-prepared to face the final challenge at the end of their Primary School: PSLE (Primary School Leaving Examination).
In Singapore, homework is regularly assigned to students by teachers that are meant to be carried out during non-school hours. On top of homework, students in primary school still have to cope with co-curricular activities. Imagine the stress they are taking up in such a young age. At BrightTutor Tuition Agency, we strongly believe that primary school tuition is important. It is very important to have a good primary school tutor that will help to ease the pressure that you kids might have in his education journey in primary school.
Whether if it is English tuition for primary school, Math tuition for primary school, Chinese tuition for primary school, or Science tuition for primary school, BrightTutor is the solution to your primary school tuition needs. We will help you by offering you experienced primary school tutor that provide effective home tuition and caters to your tuition needs. We are the Leading Primary School Tuition Agency in the field of tuition education and we aim on successfully matching our students with the most suitable and qualified tutors.
Why Start Primary School Tuition Early?
Let’s admit that what makes us true Singaporeans is the fact that we are ‘kiasu‘, so many of us want only the best for your children and send them for tuition starting from primary school level.
Now you may wonder, is it compulsory to start tuition at such young age? The answer to that is, there is no harm in starting early! It is good to ingrain the significance of education in our kids from young because of the importance of education in Singapore, and we are no strangers to remarks such as ‘it is difficult to get a job without a degree’ and ‘position and salary are depended on academic certification acquired.’ Hence it is only desirable to start tuition as early as primary school level.
It is recommended if you ever feel that as a parent, you are not able to help your children with their homework and revision due to many reasons such as changes in syllabus over the years or is occupied with work, house chores, and other responsibilities. Engaging a tutor who is up-to-date with the current Ministry of Education (MOE) syllabus, will be able to provide better assistance; not just for your kids but yourselves too, in ensuring your kids meet their academic needs.
Tuition on top of regular school curricular may sound too much for a child to handle. However, the intention here is to not further pressurize, but to further assist them academically. We are merely taking advantage of this crucial age and stage of their growth and development by training and disciplining them academically.
The role of a home tutor comes in 2 ways:
- Acts as a “filler” to fill in the gaps on what your child might have missed during class so he or she does not fall behind the others
- Ensures that your child have a better understanding of the fundamentals in the subjects thoroughly and assists in the early preparation for the upcoming examination.
Regardless, Bright Tutor Home Tuition Agency is more than happy to provide any form of support in ensuring that your child stays on par with academic demands and get the best home tuition experience in Singapore
Primary School Home Tuition or Tuition Centres?
This is one of the dilemma for parents when it comes to making their decision for primary school tuition.
No matter how great a tuition centre is for primary school students, there are advantages of primary school home tuition that can never be achieved in a primary school tuition centre.
Here are a few reasons why your child will need private primary school tuition.
1-to1 Primary School Tuition Gives your Child 100% Dedicated Attention
Many primary school students do not learn well in a group environment, especially if your child’s concentration span is short, and he/she cannot sit still in a classroom setting. With other children around, your child might be distracted and does not pay much attention when their primary school tuition teacher is conducting the tuition lesson.
If your primary school child is not doing well in school, it is not advisable to send him or her to a primary school tuition centre, where the classroom setting is similar to their primary school classes. A private primary school tutor will be able to provide 100% attention to your child, and it is easier to find out and work on what your primary school child is weak in a primary school home tuition.
Develop Better Learning Habit
If you are a working adult, and seldom has time to personally coach your primary school child to form effective learning habits and find it difficult to help with your child’s homework and selling. A private primary school tutor will be able to help your child deal with his homework and primary school syllabus.
They will also help your child develop effective learning habits and studying methods which will bring them far in their education journey, and even far in life when they are picking up other skill sets in the future.
Gain Competitive Edge Over Their Peers
For a primary school student, it is very difficult for them to cope with demanding primary school curriculum all alone. With more of their friends in primary school seeking primary school home tuition in Singapore, it will be extremely difficult to keep up with them if your child do not get the right type of help.
A private primary school tutor will help your child to keep up with the demanding primary school curriculum, and provide guidance how to handle and cope with upcoming academic challenges they will face in their primary school. Every parent will want their child to succeed and do well in school, hence hiring a primary school tutor will definitely provide that competitive edge over your child’s peers.
Instead of fighting for the primary school tuition teacher’s attention in a tuition centre, undivided attention of a private primary school tutor during home tuition will help your child to study and learn more effectively.
Why Go For Primary School Tuition in Singapore?
Why pay for tuition when our children are already being taught by trained school teachers in school. Aren’t teachers good enough?
There are few reasons for you to send your child to primary school tuition. If he is not doing well in school, it is highly advisable to engage a primary school tutor. The point of primary school tuition is to give your child the advantage to catch up with his peers.
Another reason for you to engage a primary school tutor is if you want your child to be ahead of the pack. Yes, this is surprisingly common in Singapore and it has been known that some parents have given their kids primary school tuition ahead 1 to 2 years of their current level.
There is a very common misconception about primary school tuition. Some have misunderstood that by engaging a primary school tutor at such a young age, might create stress and pressure for your child. In contrary to that, the main purpose of tuition is to ease the pressure and stress of your child in school. Primary school tuition will help him or her to cope better with homework and catch up to the current topics in class. It is definitely effective in boosting the academic performance in school, and eliminate the stress your child might face academically.
