Upper Primary School/PSLE Home Tuition

Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) is the first standardised examination a student in Singapore has to go through and is often regarded as the make-or-break hurdle that will determine the future of a child.

Students will have to undergo the examination near the end of their sixth year in primary school and the score will be used for secondary admission. A good PSLE score is required to secure enrolment in a good secondary school. The examination also tests students’ proficiency in the English language, their respective mother tongue languages, such as Chinese, Malay, Tamil and Hindu, mathematics and science. PSLE score will also determine whether a student enters the “Special”, “Express” or “Normal” stream in secondary school.

Standard Or Foundation Level

Since 2007, with the reform of the previous streaming system, students are no longer categorised into EM1 (higher), EM2 (standard and EM3 (foundation) classes. Instead, after the subject-based streaming exercise at the end of primary four, students will be given the options to take different subjects at the standard or foundational levels based on their proficiency. Regardless of what level they take, they will have to sit for the PSLE paper for the subjects, although foundational level subjects will carry less weight. At the end of primary five, the school will make the final decision on the student’s subject combinations.

The rationale of taking subjects at foundational level is to enable a struggling student to learn at a slower pace without hindering the rest of the class. In an ideal scenario, the students will be able to learn at a comfortable pace and become as proficient as their peers. Since foundational level subjects only covers 75% of the standard curriculum, students will be at a significant disadvantage during PSLE.

There is a one year gap from the subject-based streaming to the finalisation of subject combination for students to find their way back to the standard level. This can be achieve if the student receive sufficient attention and is provided with a personalised study plan, both of which are unlikely to be fulfilled given the limited resources in schools.

Why Upper Primary School Home Tuition?

For struggling students, it is more effective to engage in a home tutor who can offer them one-to-one consultation. At a young age, students are not mature enough to understand the importance of the examination and lack the discipline to work on their weak areas. For children, once they are not given the attention and assistance at something they struggle with, they will lose interest and begin to ignore it, even if that would impact the rest of their lives!

Home tutors can provide personalised learning and close monitoring of progress. A good tutor knows how to capture the attention of a child and keep them motivated to learn. In a classroom environment, where a teacher has to attend to over 20 students, individual student may feel left out and uninvolved. Most importantly, a home tutor allows students to truly learn at their own pace without influence from their peers.

Students who are doing fine academically can benefit from having a home tutor as well. Singapore’s congested academic syllabus means that each minute is vital to gain an edge over the rest. A home tutor can help bright students learn ahead of their classes, so that they can constantly stay ahead. By doing that, the children will have more time to prepare for their PSLE.

With less than two years from the subject-based streaming to PSLE, home tutors must have the experience to ensure maximum efficiency. Tutors recommended by Home Tuition Care are qualified and have proven track records. In addition, most of them have experience teaching in primary schools.

Whether your child is struggling or excelling in primary school, there is reason to engage in a home tutor to gain an advantage over the other students. Don’t let your child trail behind or get dragged down by other students in class. PSLE is a critical examination that will lay the future the path of your child.
