Understanding the material world
Chemistry has been and always will be a part of everyone’s daily lives, whether they realize it or not. From exercising to eating, the process of Chemistry takes place throughout. A brief knowledge of Chemistry would allow one to appreciate the world around them. Every process we visualize tends to involve a Chemistry reaction
Did you know that adding Mentos to diet coke causes an eruption? Even if you did know this, did you ever wonder how this works? As the Mentos submerges in the carbonated drink, it causes more and more carbon dioxide to be produced, and this causes more bubbles to be produced that eventually results in an eruption. This is just some brief insight into the reaction. To fully comprehend reactions such as these a study of Chemistry at higher levels is required. While such real-life processes may not always be discussed in school, taking enrichment lessons from Chemistry tuition allows for individuals to better understand the processes occurring in the material world.
Acquiring transferable skills
The study of Chemistry is not limited to understanding reactions of substances and studying Chemistry does not necessitate that students will only be equipped with the skills to become a scientist. Instead, they would acquire a wide range of skills that are transferrable. To name a few, studying Chemistry teaches students to pay attention to detail. Students have to read the content carefully due to the complexity of the subject and the detail it entails. Moreover, in examinations, the structure has moved toward a practical approach, requiring students to have effective analytical and critical-thinking skills. These are not developed overnight but through the process of studying the subject. Students finding difficulty in acquiring and applying these skills have resorted to Chemistry tuition, where Chemistry tutors with years of experience, have managed to effectively improve students’ skills in these areas, thus allowing for an improvement in their understanding and grades.
So how are these skills useful? How does it help students past the study of Chemistry in high school? Well, these skills are transferrable and will definitely come in to play in a student’s future, be it at University level or even in their career. With Chemistry tuition, students’ skills are likely to be further boosted, giving them an edge in the future. Experienced Chemistry tutors tend to have mastered these skills and can addresses challenges a student may face. In all careers, if not most, there is a need for individuals to analyze issues and tackle them. For example, the analytical and critical thinking skills acquired would even come of good use to a lawyer, whose field involves no science, yet allows them to form better judgments and arguments in their cases.
Pathway to future studies
Why Chemistry specifically and what makes it more important than Physics or Biology? What makes Chemistry special and how will it help my future studies or career choices? Chemistry is known to be a core branch of the Sciences, for it connects Physics and Mathematics, Biology and Medicine, and more. The study of Biology alone is not sufficient to pursue medicine for it simply entails the study of living organisms and not the reactions that occur within them. Living organisms are made of chemical compositions and thus the study of Chemistry is fundamental in order to pursue this course. In order to pursue such competitive courses, students need to have a rich understanding of the content and achieve excellent grades to land such an opportunity. Many aspiring medical students have taken up additional steps such as attending Chemistry tuition to better prepare themselves for their examinations. Chemistry tutors can even help their students understand the subject in relation to their desired field of study, given their years of experience and rich understanding of the field. In doing so, students would be better prepared for examinations, entry tests, interviews and more.
