Challenges Faced By IGCSE Combined Science Students

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 for their Physics, Chemistry or Biology. This often results in students handing in incomplete papers or subpar answers in their IGCSE Combined Science examinations.

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

Lack of Motivation

IGCSE Combined Science Students are usually faced with large amounts of stress from having to juggle many subjects, as well as deal with commitments in their personal lives and after-school activities. As such, students often have lowered levels of motivation to do well for IGCSE Combined 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 Combined Science Tutor, students will be more motivated to study harder for their IGCSE Combined Science Examinations as they will be able to make good use of their after-school time learning the IGCSE content.

Leap in Syllabus

Some IGCSE Combined Science students might experience a steep 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 Combined Science examinations.

As such, students need to be disciplined and be able to plan their time well to study their Combined Science. To do this, most parents opt for an extra pair of hands to help, by engaging an IGCSE Combined Science Tutor in Singapore. With IGCSE Combined 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!

Hectic Schedules and Timetables

IGCSE Combined 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 Combined 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.

Why You Should Engage An IGCSE Combined Science Tutor

 

Benefits of Hiring Science Tuition

1. Provide Additional Notes and Practice

Another problem faced by students is the lack of additional resources and practices, given that the IGCSE syllabus is a fairly unique one taken by only a handful of students in Singapore.

Hence, IGCSE Combined Science Tutors are especially useful as they will be 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.

2. 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 Combined 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 Combined Science Tutors will also be able to provide extra resources in the form of self-collated notes, mindmaps etc. which can greatly benefit students.

3. Tackle Student’s Weaknesses

Students might find it hard to correct mistakes or misconceptions without guidance from a qualified teacher/tutor. Furthermore, given how fast-paced lessons are in school, their school teachers may not be able to pay close attention to the student’s learning process, and the student’s weaknesses or misconceptions may easily go unnoticed by their school teacher.

Hence, it is important to engage an IGCSE Combined Science Tutor so that students will be guided on their mistakes, and tutors can also provide close guidance on their weaknesses. In no time, tutors will be able to diagnose the student’s weak areas, and can then work on tackling those weaknesses and help students improve.

4. 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 Combined 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.

What To Look For in An IGCSE Combined Science Tutor

Commitment

MindFlex recommends that you check if the IGCSE Combined 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 be forced to 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.

Patience

It is extremely important that you engage a patient tutor who is able to explain concepts and the various IGCSE Combined Science concepts in a patient way. With a patient Combined 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 Combined Science tutor in order for your child to have a smooth Science learning journey.

Qualifications

Top IGCSE Combined Science Tutors in Singapore will naturally have the qualifications 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 Combined Science tutor suits your child’s needs.

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

Currently Teaching/Have Taught Other IGCSE Combined Science Students

It is imperative that you check if the tutor you are interested in engaging has experience in teaching other IGCSE Combined Science students. With such experience, they will then be familiar with the current IGCSE Combined 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 have experience in teaching IGCSE Combined Science to students of similar levels or have the personal academic achievements to teach IGCSE Combined Science.
