Is your child feeling confident/nervous/overwhelmed/lost about the upcoming prelims?
No matter what they are feeling right now, there is still time for preparation.
REVIEWING is very crucial for quick improvement.
2. UTILIZE MEMORY TECHNIQUES
Many students face the problem of being unable to recall the information as most teachers do not focus on this. They will say “must remember this!” or “Go memorise this!” without telling the students how.
For my students, I will always teach them HOW to memorise/remember certain concepts by condensing the huge amount of information in a way that is easy to remember.
Having a good memory is super important in order to just PASS the exam!
3. PREPARE CHEAT SHEETS
The most traditional way of recalling using just a blank piece of paper is the most effective.
For my students, I will prepare blank tables / flowcharts / answer templates so that they can 'fill in the blanks' to test if they have remembered the concepts with accuracy.
In this post, I will share some of the frequently asked questions from parents:
1. How is your teaching style different from other tutors?
Many tutors will wait for students to ask questions after giving them tons of questions to do during lesson. For me, I DO NOT spend time making the student do questions after questions while I wait.
Instead, I will ask the correct questions through proper questioning technique and provide quality practice questions in order to sieve out misconceptions which students themselves are unaware of. This can only be done through years of experience.
2. How do your lessons value-add to what my child has already learnt at school?
Most teachers rush through content in school, neglecting the importance of teaching proper exam techniques required to ace the examination.
To sharpen answering skills, I will teach:
I will also reteach topics which students are weak in to bridge the gap between concept and application. With a structured strategy, students will be able to gain confidence and excel in the exams.
3. Do I need to buy assessment books?
No. I do not encourage buying of assessment books.
Personalised materials for teaching and learning will be provided for every session. I will assess the needs of every student individually by using a diagnostic test on the first lesson. Personalised materials will be prepared to tackle specific problem areas.
