Challenges Faced While Learning Biology

  • Applying Maintenance and Regulation of Life Processes Concepts
  • Able to Apply Concepts Such As Continuity of Life Concepts
  • Familiarity with Man and His Environment Theory
  • Recall of Biological Key Words and Definitions

Challenges Faced By Combined Biology Students

Unable to Remember Key Concepts and Definitions

In Pure Biology, extensive memorisation and understanding of the subject’s concepts and definitions is crucial. This can prove to be extremely difficult for many students, as they struggle to internalise these key definitions and concepts.

However, with a Pure Biology Tutor, students will be guided on the best ways to memorise their Biology content well such as flow charts and mind maps. This will definitely be able to help students to digest and remember key Pure Biology facts and definitions better.

Time Management

Many Pure Biology students tend to struggle with their time management in theri examinations. This is largely due to lack of exposure to examination-standard questions, as well as a lack of practice. As such, students often hand in incomplete papers, or hand in subpar answers which lead to them being penalised.

With a Pure Biology Tutor, however, students will be able to gain exposure to other schools’ papers and past year papers to help hone their Biology examination skills with regular targeted and timed mock examination papers. This will help to hone their time management and examination skills.

Unable to Apply Biology Concepts To Examination Questions

Pure Biology students are expected to have a strong grasp of the Biology concepts as well as apply them in the various application questions that appear in the examinations. This can be challenging for many Pure Biology students who are not used to such application questions, or for students who do not have enough practice.

Hence, having a Pure Biology Tutor is important so that students will receive guidance in handling such application questions. Furthermore, Pure Biology Tutors will also provide students with additional practice which will definitely be useful as they will be exposed to more variations of questions and different question types.

Lack of Motivation

Given how challenging the Pure Biology subject is, students may begin to get overwhelmed and unmotivated by the large amount of content mastery required. Furthermore, the Pure Biology syllabus is significantly more difficult than the Lower Secondary and Combined Biology syllabus, hence students will have to study harder and revise more in order to digest the concepts.

As such, most students turn to Pure Biology Tuition. With a Pure Biology Tutor, students will be provided with personalised guidance catered towards their weaknesses, which will allow them to see improvements in no time. With such improvements, students will find it easier when approaching even the toughest of concepts, hence increasing their motivation for Pure Biology.

Why You Should Engage A Pure Biology Tutor

Benefits of Hiring Biology Tuition

1. Helps Students Clarify Doubts

In school, students may face the challenge of asking questions in front of their peers. They may find it hard to clarify their doubts privately with their school teachers, as teachers may not have enough time to devote to each and every one of their students.. As such, many students tend to leave the class with questions that are left unanswered, and may thus sit for their examinations with unanswered questions and uncleared doubts.

With an experienced Pure Biology Tutor, students will be able to ask as many questions as they can to clear all the doubts that they have regarding the topics or concepts. This would allow students to have a better understanding on the subject and as such, thus helping them to reinforce their learning.

2. Enhance Student’s Learning in Biology

 Lessons in school are usually very fast-paced as teachers want to ensure that all topics and concepts have been covered before the examinations. As such, students who are unable to grasp the concepts straight away will tend to fall behind as they are unable to digest the information fast enough. This is likely to prevent them from consolidating their learning in time for their examinations.

As such, in order to make sure that students are consistent in their studies and are on par with what was taught in class, it is beneficial to engage the help of a Pure Biology Tutor. With the help of a tutor, students’ weaknesses and mistakes can be addressed which will effectively help in their learning. In addition, tutors can also use the time during lessons to recap on what was taught in school in order to help students to reinforce their learning.

3. Personalised 1-on-1 Lessons

Here at MindFlex, our Pure Biology Tutors offer students one-on-one lessons that provide them with 100% of their attention and time as they focus solely on one student. Having one-on-one lessons with students can allow them to feel more at ease when asking questions, as well as to learn at their own pace.

With one-on-one tuition, our experienced and qualified Pure Biology Tutors will be able to identify their student’s strengths and weaknesses in Pure Biology and create personalised lesson plans that are specifically designed to address their needs.

4. Additional Resources and Practice

Pure Biology students often face the lack of additional resources and practices for them to work on. Even if students are able to find resources online, it is not guaranteed that they contain information that is up-to-date, reliable or useful.

As such, having a Pure Biology Tutor is especially beneficial as they are able to provide students with self-curated and collated study resources, past year papers and their own mind maps or concept notes, which will definitely come in handy during students’ last minute revision.

What To Look For in A Pure Biology Tutor

Patience in Teaching

Teaching Pure Biology students is no easy feat as it is an extremely challenging subject to master. Furthermore, tutors also have to struggle to get students to focus and pay attention, given the immense number of distractions.

While this might be difficult to judge or determine at first glance, it might be useful to request for a trial lesson, and through the trial lesson, you can sit in and observe how the Pure Biology Tutor interacts with the student throughout the lesson.

Academic and Teaching Qualifications

When engaging a Pure Biology Tutor, it is important to select one that has decent academic and teaching qualifications. For example, it might be better to pick a tutor that has graduated from a Biology related course and has taught for a minimum of 1-2 years. If you are looking for a more experienced tutor to guide your child, you might also want to look out for tutors who have taught in MOE schools.

Such qualifications are crucial in ensuring that the tutor is qualified enough to teach your child, especially at Pure Biology level, which requires a lot of technicality and content mastery. Having a Pure Biology Tutor with more experience will definitely come in handy!

Commitment

It is important to select a Pure Biology Tutor that is committed, both to teaching and to the student’s schedule. Through hiring a committed tutor, you can be more assured of their dedication to teaching your child and ensuring that your child does well in their Pure Biology examination.

Furthermore, if you are intending to engage the Biology Tutor on a long-term basis, it will be beneficial to check with them to see if they are willing to follow up with the student up till the end of their O Levels or N Levels, or even through their tertiary education.

Ability To Spot Weaknesses

Pure Biology is a tricky subject to master as students are first expected to have a strong grasp in the content, and thereafter, students are also expected to hone their skills in analytical thinking and application. In particular, it might be difficult to change a student’s mistake once he/she has been exposed to it for long periods of time – leading to an accumulation of misconceptions that might be harmful for them.

As such, it is crucial to pick a Pure Biology Tutor who can quickly spot mistakes and target them before they snowball into something even greater. With an experienced Pure Biology Tutor, they will also be aware of the common weaknesses for Pure Biology students, and have ways to target them effectively.
