The GCE ‘O’ Level examinations are one of the most important checkpoints for many students across Singapore. It determines the list of courses they would be allowed to apply to in their desired polytechnics, or enrolment into their preferred Junior Colleges. Apart from school teachers, ‘O’ Level home tutors and teachers at tuition centres play a significant role in guiding students through their long and arduous educational journey. Given the intensity required to prepare for such major examinations, school teachers alone would be unable to push students to achieve their best; external help is often required to shape students and prepare them for the examinations.
The learning journey towards achieving stellar results during the GCE ‘O’ levels is long and arduous, requiring much preparation and hard work. It will be challenging in many ways for students due to different learning styles. Students have to cope with the stress of handling many content heavy subjects, grasp new concepts, link concepts that they have learnt, analyse information, develop reasoning, and apply the knowledge to solve real-world problems.
The biggest advantage of enrolling students for tuition lessons in preparation for the GCE ‘O’ level examinations is that they will have access to customised teaching methods. Tuition teachers are trained to tap onto the skills of each student to drive academic success. During tuition lessons, the student to teacher ratio is smaller – this is especially so for one to one lessons. Therefore, compared to a school setting, tuition teachers can afford to invest time and attention in one student, understanding and addressing their individual needs.
‘O’ Level tuition teachers, like those on ChampionTutor, have the space and comfort (due to small class strength) to understand their students’ learning pace and apply the best teaching method that suits their students. This enables the effective absorption and analysis of information. Tutors would also be able to spot their students’ weak points and aid them accordingly. With extra attention, tutors are better able to make students understand concepts in personalised ways. Some tutors may even be able to gauge each student’s attention span and level of focus at any given point in time. This way, tutors would know when their students are distracted, and work on new ways to improve concentration.
Another benefit of having ‘O’ Level tuition for students is that they will be able to clear the doubts that they were not able to clarify with their school teachers. One reason why students may feel perturbed when it comes to clearing doubts with school teachers is that some teachers are unapproachable. They may also be unable to schedule appointments with their school teacher for a personal consultation. At times, students may also be unsatisfied with the answer their teachers provide.
