Increasing Complexity of the Subject
As students progress across the years, the content becomes increasingly complex. In such cases, it becomes harder for students to comprehend the content that is often taught in short periods in school. Nowadays, teachers even ask students to study new topics in advance, so that they may use the class time to discuss practice questions on it. Some students are able to adapt to this approach easily, but it is also because many of them have Chemistry tuition. This allows them to be taught content ahead of school lessons, allowing them to keep up with the pace. Many other students are not able to keep up and are often left far behind their classmates.
Further, there is a tendency for lessons to be conducted in a lecture format in Junior Colleges, which makes it even more difficult for many students to learn as they do not receive any personal attention. A Chemistry tutor ensures that such students are well-prepared in advance, to allow them to fully understand the content and questions put forward in school.
A Chemistry tutor can help students better understand these topics that may either have been taught too quickly or not in-depth that makes students unclear about the subject. The problem students face in school is a lack of attention. While some teachers are willing to help students, the teacher to student ratio in schools just does not allow for it. Teachers have tight schedules and simply do not have the time for each student. With Chemistry tuition, the students receive a high level of attention and lessons can be tailored according to students’ needs, ensuring that they understand each topic thoroughly before moving to the next. Lessons can be scheduled at an increased frequency to support students if they require more time to learn and practice certain topics.
In order to help students, a Chemistry tutor would prepare revision exercises after each topic has been taught It is fundamental for students to put to practice what they have just learnt, ensuring that they fully comprehend the content. Such practice also familiarizes students with the content, which makes it easier when tackling examinations.
If you ask most Chemistry students, they will admit it is not difficult to pass the subject. Yet, many of them resort to Chemistry tuition. Why is this so? In Singapore, where our economy is driven by high competition, the spirit can be seen in our educational systems too. The competition enables students to work hard and thus this places a strong emphasis on grades in our society. Grades are highly significant and affect an individual’s future. While some students manage to achieve stellar grades without any assistance, not everyone is as capable as them and thus we can see many taking up Chemistry tuition.
A Chemistry tutor gives his students the time and resources necessary that provides them with an edge when taking examinations. It also helps struggling students who find it difficult to pass, to end up with much better grades. By taking Chemistry tuition, most students tend to score much better than they would without it, and this difference can make or break their desired future plans.
Based on experience, the help of Chemistry tuition, coupled with the student’s individual effort will allow them to fall amongst the top of their batch. While costs may deter some, many students have agreed that the short-term investment is worthwhile the grades they reap.
