For the Malay community in Singapore, apart from studying English in primary school, they will also be required to learn a second language. Majority of the time it would be Malay since it is their natural mother tongue language. Therefore, it is critical for your child to be able to read, write and speak in Malay.
Language differs from that of Mathematics and Science in the sense that it doesn’t involve any formulae. Instead, it requires consistent practice in order for anyone to excel in it. Hence, the only way one will be able to perform better in Malay is to actually use it more frequently. In schools, the typical timing allocated for second languages is usually no more than two hours daily. Furthermore, as we live in a multi racial society, conversations with friends are usually carried out in English. The best way to help your child improve in their language skills is through home tuition. Here are some of the benefits that home tuition has to offer compared to the traditional classroom setting.
Firstly, the textbook is your child’s best friend as that’s what schools will normally use and test on. However, the problem is that in every class, there are quite a number of students. Therefore, your child might not be able to receive the full practice that they need, especially when it comes to reading. Home tuition, on the other hand, is 1-to-1, enabling your child to have more reading time and assistance from the tutor.
Secondly, when it comes to language wise, teachers will definitely give out quite a number of essay assignments for your child to complete. However, not all students will be able to accomplish this. Even when the assignments are marked and returned, some students still might not be identify their mistakes. A tutor can help to spot your child’s weakness by correcting their mistakes and explaining it to them on the spot. This will effectively provide better understanding and help them to improve on their writing skills.
Thirdly, Malay isn’t spoken often a lot in school. Majority of the classes are conducted in English and Malay is only used during the allocated period. A lack of conversing in the language will not help your child become fluent in it. Furthermore, not all families converse in Malay at home. Through home tuition, your child will have more opportunities to speak the language and gain fluency in it.
Finally, there are certain concepts to learn when answering questions and taking exams. Although they are covered in school, not all students are able to grasp it instantly. Some may have a tougher time. A home tutor bridges that gap for your child as there will be more time to clarify doubts, revise and make preparations in advance.
Primary one is the official start to your child’s education in life. Hence, as a parent, you shouldn’t be taking it lightly too. A head start for your child goes a long way to their future. Provide your child with the best possible learning opportunities you can as this can go a long way for their future.
