# The Only PSLE Math Tuition Your Child Need To Pass With Flying Colours!

Dear Anxious Parent,

PSLE Math is important.

You know it. We know it.

If your child has attended other primary math tuition class, and still not getting enough marks to pass or achieve the grade you want, read on.

Your child’s learning and study strategies may be falling short because of these 3 reasons…

### 1. Knowing Content is Not Enough

School textbooks organize learning into topics, such as Fractions, Ratio and Angles.

While this is great initially because your child learns easily with the organized content, this is not enough because exam questions may be phrase differently and do not appear in the same sequence as they appear in the textbook, which can catch your child off-guard and confuse him during the exam.

### 2. Not Being Able to Demonstrate Higher Order Thinking

The PSLE Maths syllabus requires the grasp of 12 heuristic concepts, a reflection of higher order thinking. Without grasping these concepts, he is most likely going to leave the questions blank, or do them “anyhow,” hoping to still get marks from his working.

If your child is unable to master these concepts, Paper 2 will be extremely challenging, causing him to lose precious marks (and confidence).

### 3. Lack of Different Approaches to Tackle Various Problem Sums

Problem-solving skills need to be demonstrated during the PSLE Maths exam. A variety of questions are in the exam, which require different approaches. It may seem like a good idea initially for your child to learn only 1 approach, but that can seriously backfire during the exam. So, while some parents ask whether their child should learn either the Ratio Method or Model Method, I say ‘Both methods are equally important.’

### Restricting your child to learn only 1 approach can harm his performance during the PSLE maths exam!

If you learn how to help your child tackle these 3 factors, you can make a HUGE difference in your child’s grade…

But that’s not all!

There are 10 More Skills Your Child Must Know in order to score well in PSLE Maths…

1. Identifying the questions’ concepts

2. Converting the question to his preferred way of working

3. Understanding the story behind

4. Managing time during test/ exam

5. Planning out the steps to solve

6. Checking the answer to know it’s right

7. Feeling confident of solving it

8. Making sure it’s the right answer

9. Knowing how to use the information correctly

10. Avoiding careless mistakes

### Don’t panic yet!

The good news is… These skills are EASY to teach your child, as long as you know how to turn on the right “mental switches” in your child’s brain.

In my upcoming workshop on PSLE Preparation for Parents, you will be able to help your child:

1. Overcome the 3 factors to tackle PSLE Maths with CONFIDENCE

(your child can solve 3-5 mark long questions without stress)

2. Master and Demonstrate Higher Order Thinking during the exam

(grasp the 12 heuristic concepts and NEVER leave a question blank again)

3. Easily grasp the 10 Skills Needed to Get the Desired Grade

(these skills can determine whether your child passes or fails; or even separate a ‘B’ from ‘A’!)

### BONUS

4. How to apply psychology to BOOST your child’s confidence and REDUCE exam stress

5. PSLE Maths Tick How to turn on your child’s “mental switches” to help them quickly learn the skills they need

6. PSLE Maths Tick How to be a supportive parent without being over-protective

(these skills can determine whether your child passes or fails; or even separate a ‘B’ from ‘A’!)
