Challenges Faced By IGCSE Science Students

Lack of Motivation

IGCSE Science Students are usually faced with large amounts of stress from having to juggle many subjects, as well as deal with distractions from their personal life and after-school activities. As such, students often have lowered levels of motivation to do well for IGCSE Science as they find it too hard to score during the examinations, especially if they do not understand the content.

With the help of a Top IGCSE Science Tutor, students will be more motivated to study harder for their IGCSE Science Examinations as they will be able to make good use of their after-school time learning the IGCSE content.

Time Management

A common issue faced by many IGCSE Science students is poor time management in their examinations. This is largely due to either a lack of exposure to the various question types or simply a lack of practice. This often results in students handing in incomplete papers or subpar answers in their IGCSE Science examinations.

With an IGCSE Science Tutor, students will be given regular practices to ensure that they are well-versed in the IGCSE Science content as well as the various question types that often appear in the IGCSE Science examinations.

Hectic Schedules and Timetables

IGCSE Science students often have numerous after-school commitments such as additional classes as well as their own personal non-academic commitments. As such, they may not have much free time after school.

As a result, many IGCSE Science students are left feeling drained and exhausted after school, and may not have the time or energy to catch up on their revision and school homework. This is likely to put immense stress and pressure on them, which would have adverse effects on their well-being in the long term.

Leap in Syllabus

Some IGCSE students might face a huge learning curve which may cause them to feel lost and confused as they are introduced to new challenging concepts and topics. Additionally, students are faced with the stress from various other subjects, which might make it hard for them to keep up with the fast-paced environment when taking the IGCSE examinations.

As such, students need to have self-discipline and be able to plan their time well to study their chosen subjects. To do this, most parents opt for an extra pair of hands to help, by engaging an IGCSE Science Tutor in Singapore. With IGCSE Science Tuition, students will be guided on various skills and techniques they are expected to learn in order to achieve content mastery for the Science subject!

Why You Should Engage An IGCSE Science Tutor

Benefits of Hiring Science Tuition

1. Reinforce Learning Done in School

In school, the fast-paced lessons might render students unable to grasp all the concepts at once. Furthermore, the speed of the lessons might also prevent students from raising questions or clearing doubts during lesson time, resulting in an accumulation of queries.

With an IGCSE Science Tutor, however, students will receive close guidance and reinforcement of the lessons learnt in school. Tutors will pay close attention to the school’s syllabus, and build on it through their customised lesson plans. Through this, the IGCSE Science Tutor will be able to reinforce the learning done in school, effectively helping the student learn better.

2. Help Students with Tough Concepts

For students who aren’t given the correct guidance and resources, they might find it hard to grasp tough concepts, especially at the IGCSE standard when everything becomes increasingly abstract. With continued uncertainty in Science concepts, it will definitely take a toll on the student’s motivation to learn Science.

With an IGCSE Science Tutor, however, students will receive additional guidance from a mentor, allowing them to get their doubts clarified. The tutor will also be able to work on the student’s weaknesses, allowing them to grasp tough concepts more easily.

3. Help Students Clear Doubts

Given how fast paced the lessons are in school, students might have accumulated many doubts and misconceptions, and might be too shy to clarify them in class. Furthermore, it might be difficult to seek clarification from their school teachers outside of class time.

With an IGCSE Science Tutor, students will be sure to have an easier time clarifying doubts! Furthermore, since Science Tuition is usually carried out in a small group/1-1 setting, IGCSE Science Tutors can pay closer attention in diagnosing student’s problems, and students also have more opportunities to clear their doubts.

4. Help Students with IGCSE Exam Preparation

Leading up to the IGCSE Science Examination, students might start feeling anxious and unprepared, with no one to turn to for help. It is indeed hard to prepare for examinations without the correct resources.

With an IGCSE Science Tutor, however, students will be provided with additional support. Tutors will be able to administer mock tests to prepare students, and provide instantaneous feedback on their performance. Beyond that, IGCSE Science Tutors will also be able to provide extra resources in the form of self-collated notes, mindmaps etc. which can greatly benefit students.

What To Look For in An IGCSE Science Tutor

Currently Teaching/Taught Other Secondary School Students

It is absolutely imperative that you check if the tutor you are interested in engaging has experience in teaching other IGCSE students. With such experience, they will then be familiar with the current IGCSE Science syllabus and common examination practices. It is thus important that you ensure that the tutor has been teaching students of similar levels.

MindFlex also recommends that you choose tutors who either have extensive experience in teaching Science to IGCSE School Students, or have the personal academic achievements to teach Secondary Science.

Qualifications

Top IGCSE Science Tutors in Singapore will naturally be highly qualified and be highly-recommended. We recommend for you to check if they have been recommended by past parents or have any testimonials from parents and students, in order to gauge if the IGCSE Science tutor suits your child’s needs.

Oftentimes, most qualified and highly-recommended Science Tutors will have strong qualifications as well as a strong testimonial base, which can reassure you of their capability to teach your child.

Patience

It is extremely important that you engage a patient tutor who is able to explain the various IGCSE Science concepts in a patient manner. With a patient Science tutor, students will be more likely to clarify their doubts and misconceptions with the tutor, since they are not too daunted or intimidated to do so.

The patience of the tutor is an immensely important factor when selecting a tutor. MindFlex recommends that you engage a patient IGCSE Science tutor in order for your child to have a smooth Science learning journey.

Commitment

It is also very important to check if the IGCSE Science tutor that you select is able to commit to your time slot in the long term. This is important, as it would definitely be a pity for the tutor to build a strong rapport with your child, and then subsequently cancel future lessons due to clashes in your schedules.

Here at MindFlex, we recommend that you check with your tutor on whether they are able to commit in the long-term in order to avoid disappointment and the disruption of your child’s learning.
