A student already gets his education from school. So what is the use of getting a chemistry tutor? Is there any difference? Is it even worth it to pay the additional costs? Yes, actually, it is all worth it. There are a lot of things that you child can get from a tutor that he doesn’t and can’t get from school. You won’t be paying double for the same thing. You will be paying for something that supplements and complements the education that your child gets from school. A chemistry tutor in Singapore can give your child many tools that can be used for better understanding, faster learning and higher grades.
IMMEDIATE REVIEW AND CLARIFICATIONS
When your child has a tuition session right after his classes, he will immediately be able to review the lesson for today with his tutor. If he has any doubts or clarifications, he can ask the tutor right away and get an immediate answer. This helps a child greatly because if he is confused about one thing, everything else seems confusing as well. If the questions is clarified right away, the child’s mind will be clear and can focus better. The immediate review can then make the student understand the lesson better and commit the concept to memory without much effort.
Students are given homework after classes. If a student doesn’t have help and the homework is already due, he may not do as good as he could and end up having low marks. But if your child already has a tutor, the tutor can help with the homework right away. Not only will your child get better marks because he had a tutor guide him, but your child will also understand the concept of the homework better because he had step by step help. This is not to say that the tutor will do your child’s homework for him. No, the tutor will only help, explain and guide. Your child will be able to learn because of immediate feedback as well.
DIFFERENT WAY OF EXPLANATION
A teacher’s explanation does not work for all students. It’s the same concept as the saying ‘you can’t please everybody’. One explanation cannot make every student understand. This is why a tutor’s explanation is important. He will explain in a different way. If that doesn’t work, he can find another way to explain until the student understands. Teachers do not have the luxury of time to do this at school, so having a tutor to do it is essential. A tutor can also provide supplementary materials to help the student understand a concept better.
ADVANCED STUDY OF TOPICS
Teachers in school have to go by a syllabus and a timeline. A tutor, however, is not limited by this. The student can therefore ask to study topics in advance. This way, when that topic is reached at school, the student already has some background. This will allow him to learn faster and easier at school. This also makes students more confident because they wouldn’t have to worry about falling behind and not being able to keep up with their classmates.
DETAILED AND CONSTANT FEEDBACK
Teachers cannot provide students with detailed feedback every time. All they can do is say you’re wrong and tell you what the right answer is. A chemistry tutor in Singapore, on the other hand, will be able to tell why you are wrong, how you went wrong, and how you can answer correctly. For a student, this is helpful because learning how you made a mistake can teach you to never make that mistake again. Also, being told how to get to the right answer allows you to know how to do it again next time.
