How to improve English further by getting A?

Postby Musicstar » Mon May 19, 2014 10:16 am

Hi,

So far my girl has got high B and she never got A. I am counting down for her that in just 4 more months in PSLE. How do I help her to score better? Should I get her a good English tutor now?

My nephew was getting Bs for English. I made him focus on the different components of the top school papers ie. one day to complete all the graphic stimulus, another day to complete compre cloze. It allowed him to focus on just one section at any one time and it took away the stress of completing the whole paper at one shot. Towards the end, I made him attempt the whole paper.

Coupled with marked improvement in compo, he got an A at psle.

It's been a while since my daughter's PSLE, so I can't remember too well, but I believe this is the non-compo paper? There's quite a lot in this paper, so you might need to narrow it down. If it's grammar and punctuation, she needs to learn the rules. If it's cloze passage, she needs to read more to broaden her vocab and also probably do more practice. If it's compre, she may need to be shown how to find and express the answers.
