Common problems faced when studying P4 Science
Struggle with physical Science topics
Physical Science topics like Light, Heat, Temperature, and Energy are more technical and challenging. Students need to know certain mathematical concepts to skillfully answer these P4 physical Science questions. Without adequate guidance and practice from a P4 Science tuition teacher, they probably cannot combine both scientific knowledge and mathematical concepts to answer the questions well.
More long answer questions
There are more long answer questions in the P4 Science paper, as compared to P3 Science paper where the questions are mainly short-answer questions (SAQs). In primary four, these questions are also more application-based, which require greater critical thinking, instead of simply regurgitating the scientific content learnt.
Unfamiliar with Science keywords
While marking the P4 Science examination papers, Science teachers and examination setters will be looking out for important Science keywords and key phrases. Without the guidance of P4 Science tuition teachers, primary four students will struggle to use scientific keywords while answering the questions. They don’t know which appropriate scientific terminology is to be used. Weaker students may have trouble even knowing and understanding the scientific terminology.
What to look for in a P4 Science Tutor
Familiarise your child with scientific terminology
In schools, teachers already struggle to cover all the topics and content in the syllabus. Little time is spent on teaching students how to tackle application-based questions, especially for topics such as Light, Heat, Temperature, and Energy. With the help of an experienced P4 Science tutor, this gap is bridged. Your child will learn the different scientific keywords and phrases as well as how to apply concepts from multiple Science topics. This will greatly help him/her to tackle long answer questions and application-based questions.
Provide the best value for money
Different parents and students have varying needs. Some may prefer young and energetic undergraduates who have a small age-gap and can connect with the child. Others may prefer ex or current Ministry of Education (MOE)-trained P4 Science tutors who have a wealth of teaching experience and are kept abreast of the latest syllabus changes. No matter what type of P4 Science tutor parents and students may prefer, the P4 Science tuition must be affordable and provide the best value for money.

Vibrant and animated to capture your child’s attention
At this age, your child may still find it hard to sit down and focus for a long time. P4 Science tuition teachers must be bright and animated to capture your child’s interest and keep the lesson engaging. A good P4 Science tutor will make use of real-world contexts involving Science in daily life, society, and the environment to teach your child. This will be highly useful, especially when the P4 Science tutor is teaching dry and technical physical Science topics such as Light, Heat, Temperature, and Energy.
Benefits of P4 Science Tuition
During Science classes in school, teachers dedicate more time teaching P4 Science topics and neglect their revision for P3 Science topics. This will be disadvantageous for students who are still weak in P3 topics as these topics will be tested again in Primary 4. With P4 Science tuition, your child will get to revise past topics covered in Primary 3 at a greater depth. This will be highly useful in building a stronger Science foundation.
With constant guidance and practice with his/her P4 Science tutor, your child should be able to understand the Primary 4 Science concepts and how they may be tested during the P4 Science examinations. An experienced P4 Science tutor can guide your child through the step-by-step process of tackling P4 Science questions. Your child will learn how to look out for similarities in the questions tested so he/she can process them much quicker than others. This will definitely help him/her score well in the End of Year P4 Science examinations.
After going for P4 Science tuition, your child will greatly improve his/her thought processes and answering techniques to tackle Science questions, especially long answer questions and application-based questions. He/She can easily approach questions with unfamiliar contexts and apply what he/she had learnt to answer in context of the questions.
