Proven Methods To Scoring Well For Each Component Of Literature

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT LITERATURE TUTOR

Important Qualities to Look For In A Good Literature Tuition Teacher

  • Our Literature tuition teachers range from current & former MOE teachers to undergraduate & graduated tutors (Bachelor’s, Master’s, PhD) majoring in Literature, or Linguistics. Every tutor whose profile we will show you has a strong record of helping their students’ marks increase. They scored A’s for their own Literature exams, and can teach you useful exam tips and techniques so that you can achieve a quick boost to your grades
  • To ensure the effectiveness of every Literature tuition session, Get Better Grades will recommend only tutors who have relevant degrees (Bachelor’s, Master’s, PhD) in the subjects they teach. Each Literature tuition teacher must also have a track record of helping their students gain valuable marks during important exams
  • The MOE changes the syllabus whenever there is a need to be current with industry/the economy’s needs, trends and developments
  • These changes affect the Literature content – and importantly – the exam requirements, answer formats, and marking schemes
  • It is crucial that the Literature tuition teacher is familiar with the most updated syllabus, and that what they teach does not contradict what is taught in your child’s school
  • When providing recommendations of carefully-shortlisted Literature tuition teachers, Get Better Grades will list and describe the relevant teaching experience of our tutors to assure you of their abilities to help students at your level to progress academically, and to achieve higher grades
  • Homework is given by school teachers so that their students can practice what was taught in school. It is important to be up to date in doing your homework, so that you can internalize the content. When you hand in your homework, you will find out from your school teacher if you managed to correctly understand what was taught in class. Knowing this helps tremendously when you are revising content for your school exams and for the national exams. Revision is not useful if you are learning and re-learning the wrong concepts that you think are right. Giving your teacher the wrong answers will not help you gain higher marks
  • Get Better Grades’ Literature tuition teachers are experienced and have methodical knowledge of the exact skills and content that a student will need to excel in each of the chapters that you must master, in order to do well in your exams. Our Literature tutors are also able to create personalized learning schedules, so that their students are able to understand, absorb and retain new knowledge, more efficiently and within a short period of time
  • The syllabus, content and examination practices differ for each level of education
  • Many Literature students are frustrated with not being able to instinctively understand the content that is taught by their school teachers
  • Our tutors are familiar with the newest MOE syllabus, and they have taught students at your academic level
  • Get Better Grades accepts tutor applications only when the tuition teacher has a degree (or is in the process of obtaining a degree) in the subject that they teach. This is to ensure that the private tutor has the necessary knowledge and expertise to adequately teach the correct content as well as to help the student arrive at error-free answers when responding to important exam questions
  • When providing recommendations of carefully-shortlisted Literature tuition teachers, Get Better Grades will describe the relevant teaching experience of our tutors to assure you of their abilities to help students at your level to progress academically, and achieve higher grades
  • It is important that the Literature tuition teacher puts in the best effort when guiding and teaching you. A dedicated home tuition teacher will ask pertinent questions in order to know which areas you are struggling with. A committed private tutor is punctual and rarely would suggest that the lesson has to be re-scheduled. Competent tutors have scored A in Literature when they took their O and A Levels, and they would have at least a Bachelor’s in Literature, or Linguistics. This means that their professional knowledge of Literature can help you achieve better grades, whether you are in secondary school or in junior college. 
  • When recommending Literature tuition teachers, Get Better Grades will facilitate communication between you and the tutor to ensure that both parties have a common understanding of expectations before confirming the tuition arrangements.
  • It is often the best for you to continue with one good tutor if the Literature tuition teacher is capable of teaching you and has already built a connection with you. This will ensure that you can benefit the most from his/her lessons since the tutor will be more familiar with your weaknesses and strengths, and can work on them throughout the subsequent academic levels
  • Our Literature tuition teachers have between 2 to 30+ years of experience in teaching students who are often from different schools. These Literature tutors have  accumulated notes and past year papers that they can provide to you for additional practice. Some tutors also prepare mind maps, common questions and pitfalls in past year papers, as well as self-designed practices referenced from assessment books
  • Get Better Grades will indicate in the tutor’s profiles if the Literature tuition teacher is able to provide materials and resources for the students, when we recommend between 4 to 10 qualified tutors to you
  • Students each have different starting points as well as grade goals. Some students want to consistently score an A, and some students are aiming to get a C or a B for their national exams. Your Literature tuition teacher will evaluate your learning needs, and will suggest workbooks and practice sheets that are most suitable for you so that you can master content that will help you quickly achieve your grade targets
  • The best Literature tuition teachers can identify their students’ root causes of learning challenges, within the first lessons. These Literature tutors are experienced in using relevant step by step methods to competently address these vulnerabilities. They will create a study roadmap to help you systematically learn difficult content within short periods of time
  • We show tutor profiles only when they had received good feedback from parents and students. The quality of the Literature tuition teacher is very important to your academic success
  • Get Better Grades removes from our database the details of tutors who did not receive positive comments

Challenges Faced By Literature Students In Singapore

Challenges Faced By POA Students in Singapore

>  Limited interest in a deeper engagement, not only with language, but also with issues of socio-political and cultural import from a variety of global texts, including by authors from India, Southeast Asia and Africa 

>  Difficulty in connecting literary texts to contemporary issues – and not just limited to discussions of plot and characters – despite MOE teachers’ efforts to help students be more globally aware

>  Insufficient critical analysis skills and limited capacity to perceive issues from different points of view

>  The new syllabus gives more attention to the ethical aspects of literature, alongside literary appreciation. One of the main goals of this shift in focus is to help students develop empathy and become global thinkers

>  This latest syllabus is not about teaching literature for moral values. It aims to help students analyze underlying values in texts, how to deal with ethical dilemmas in flawed characters, and to open up space for debate and dialogue

>  Struggles in adapting to a globally connected world where there are bound to be differences and conflicting ideas, and for students to engage with and adapt to these differences

>  Not able to listen to marginalized voices or competing narratives that are sometimes overlooked

>  Problems with adapting to the new teaching strategies that encourage independent learning, instead of simply relying on teachers for answers

>  Challenges with adjusting to purely teacher-directed instruction to more active student engagement, discussions and exploratory talk, role-play, debates

>  Does not have enough capacity to understand and interpret texts and contexts. Outside school hours, students are encountering texts that are not purely of a literary nature, but the texts they encounter are on social media, memes and Tiktok

>  Insufficient ability to discern what is truth and fake news. The skills, knowledge and disposition being built during the study of Literature will be applicable to students in their daily lives, even as adults

>  Some parts of the pedagogy might be perceived as “messy” or “incoherent”, but verbalizing our thoughts shapes our thinking processes as we progress

>  Literature is not only for people who are good in English. Within the entire curriculum, Literature teaches students skills like decision-making, relationships, and the ways we can get along with other people

More exposure and practice now = less guesswork and panic during exams

Reviews of benefits from hiring experienced Literature tuition teachers from Get Better Grades

My English was always good, and I scored A's comfortably. Literature requires very different skills, and I did not expect it to be so hard. The first 2 months were pure torture. I still can't imagine why some of my classmates like the subject. Ms Sze-Tho is amazing. She taught me new (and of course, correct) perspectives to analyze the texts.
Meiyi
B then consistent A
The first Lit book that my school chose was still OK and rather manageable. The poems and other components were a problem. I could not do well in any of them. Mr Desmond had been teaching Lit at tuition centres for a few years and is familiar with these problems that most students face. He knows how we can and should correct our weaknesses before the O Levels.
Valerie
C to B
I am not very "into" the arts or literature, and took Lit mainly because the other subject choices looked more difficult. Mr Abdul is a current MOE teacher, and he knows the important exam requirements. He has been guiding me for the past 1 year. My grades and confidence have improved very steadily.
Tianyu
D to B
I am not a dramatic person by nature and some of the texts were a bit too much for me to follow. I just could not understand what was going on. My mum was worried that I would hate Lit. Ms Lim is very patient and she clearly explains why she interpreted certain concepts the way she did. My homework and projects got better, to the point that I am taking Literature for my A Levels, after doing well for my O Levels.

Benefits of Engaging a Reliable Literature Tuition Teacher

Just when you have finished preparing for one quiz, there is another coming up in 2 weeks’ time. Every day, new homework assignments and projects are added to a never-ending to-do list. 

You can keep up, but just barely. This is stressful, especially when you dread the day when you cannot finish your homework in time because you don’t have the answers to the questions that your teachers asked.

Worse, your classmates – who are in your class because you had previously been achieving similar grades to theirs – are able to get the right answers and score higher marks. Very discouraging.

Good Literature tuition teachers will give you 1 to 1 attention, so that you can ask them how to solve those difficult homework and exam problems. 

Get Better Grades represents only qualified tuition teachers who already have a Bachelor’s, or are about to get one. Or they might have a Master’s or PhD in the subject that they are teaching you. 

As they are experienced in teaching students in your academic level, they can easily and clearly explain to you what you need to know and do, so that you can urgently gain much higher marks.

Your Literature private tutors would also have materials to share with you – whether they are exam papers or homework assignments from other schools. Or, they would have good recommendations for you to buy workbooks that are most suitable for you to practice on, in order to gain mastery of the tricky concepts.

With Literature home tuition, you can get instant clarification in concepts that are difficult to understand. 

You can also receive customised lesson plans tailored to suit your unique learning style and understanding of the different Literature topics, so that you may better absorb the content and understand the concepts.

Your Literature tuition teachers from Tutors Singapore are very familiar with the latest MOE syllabus and newest exam requirements. They have been teaching for between 2 to over 30 years and can identify the areas that you should focus on, according to your grade targets and pace of learning.

The current Literature syllabus can have content that is challenging for many students. Our Literature tuition teachers are experienced in teaching students at your academic level. They are familiar with the common misconceptions and the dangerous mistakes made by Literature students.

Double-checking your answers is useful only if you know how to create and put together the answers that the MOE really wants you to give.

Learn how to accurately analyze the questions, so that you can arrive at the answers that give you maximum marks.

Professional Literature tutors are able to show you how Literature concepts are applied when answering tricky exam questions.

You lost interest and became frustrated only because much of the syllabus did not make sense. 

Once there is clarity and you are able to perform the simple and then the advanced tasks, your sense of achievement will lead you to better grades and even stronger mastery of Literature.

Students can be overwhelmed with having to maintain a healthy and balanced personal and academic life. 

While it is beneficial to spend time developing leadership and team-building skills during co-curricular activities as well as having a good social life after school hours, this would also mean that students may have limited time to study. 

Hiring a competent and professional Literature tuition teacher can help them to efficiently make use of their time when studying, so that they can holistically do even better in both their personal and academic lives.

Many Literature students fear speaking up and asking questions during lessons because they worry about being laughed at in class. 

Literature 1 to 1 home tuition teachers will help students to have a better understanding of their lessons in school. Their home tuition teacher will patiently and clearly explain the difficult concepts to them.

Effective Literature tuition gives them the confidence of answering tricky questions when faced with unexpectedly challenging problems during school and national exams.

Our qualified Literature tuition teachers are experienced, and have thorough understanding of the common problems faced by Literature students. 

They will be able to deconstruct complex Literature topics into simpler concepts, and customize learning materials to improve students’ understanding of these topics. 

Increase your ability to give the RIGHT answers that your school exams and national exams require of you. 

Engage the most competent and reliable Literature tuition teachers, to help you succeed.
