Science Tutor Conducting A Lesson

Importance of Combined Science Tuition

Combined Science can be a rather demanding subject for many students. Moreover, in Singapore’s Pro-Science society, many schools are now making a greater push towards applied learning. This means a higher degree of application in the Combined Science curriculum.

As such, Combined Science students can no longer rely on rote learning to prepare for their examinations like they used to. Instead, students are forced to have an in-depth understanding and knowledge of all of their Combined Science concepts. Furthermore, students are required to be able to apply this knowledge to the various examination questions.

Here at MindFlex, our Top Combined Science Tutors are able to help students to hone students’ Combined Science knowledge to ensure that they are able to tackle their Combined Science examinations.

Challenges Faced By Combined Science Students

Lack of Confidence

Given the high demands and overwhelming content of Combined Science, some Combined Science students may feel nervous and uncertain about asking and answering questions in the examination due to the fear of writing the wrong answer.

At MindFlex, our Qualified and Effective Combined Science Tutors will make sure to give the time, attention and resources that students need to become more certain and confident in their abilities in asking questions and acing the subject.

Lack of Motivation

Many Combined Science students tend to feel rather unmotivated. This is especially true if they are already lagging behind in class, causing them to feel hopeless about the subject. However, it is essential to understand the importance of scoring well in Combined Science, as it counts towards students’ final O Level score.

With MindFlex’s Top Combined Science Tutors to guide your child throughout their Combined Science Journey would definitely come in handy, especially if your child lacks the motivation to study or revise for the examination. Our tutors will even provide your child with access to highly effective tips and tricks in order to do well in combined science!

Inability to Clarify Doubts

Some Combined Science students face some difficulties clarifying their doubts in class, especially students who are more quiet and timid by nature. As such, they may be afraid of being ridiculed by their peers, and as a result do not speak up in class.

Here at MindFlex, we believe that it is of the utmost importance that students voice out their concerns and doubts as soon as possible to facilitate a smoother learning process. Moreover, the act of speaking up in class will train Combined Science students to speak up later on in life. This is helpful in building up their confidence, and will serve them well in the future and in the workplace.

Time Management

Many Combined Science students face the problem of being unable to complete their Combined Science paper on time. This is largely due to insufficient practice and lack of exposure to the various question types, resulting in them being unaware of how to tackle the questions during examination. As such, students often hand in incomplete papers, or hand in subpar answers.

With a Top Combined Science Tutor, however, students will be given weekly practices and exposure to other schools’ papers and past year papers to help hone their examination skills, allowing them to be more confident when tackling their Combined Science examinations.

Why You Should Engage A Combined Science Tutor

Benefits of Hiring Science Tuition

1. 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 Combined Science 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 a 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.

2. Instill Passion for Learning Science

At Secondary level, students might start to get stressed out over the amount of content, resulting in them becoming unmotivated to study, or even start disliking the Science subject. This, in the long run, can be extremely detrimental for the student’s grades and well-being.

However, with a Combined Science Tutor, students will receive personalised lessons that are custom fit to both their interests and weaknesses. Tutors will be able to deliver lessons in interesting ways, allowing students to have an easier time learning the various concepts.

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 a Combined 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, Combined 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 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 Combined Science 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 a 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 A Combined Science Tutor

Are they currently teaching/taught other Combined Science students

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

Patience

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

Qualifications

Combined 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 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.

Commitment

It is also very important to check if the 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 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.

Testimonials from Combined Science Students

I started Combined Science tuition with my tutor Mdm Wong in Sec 3, and I have been doing well ever since. Mdm Wong is great at breaking down large chunks of information and making them easier to understand. Thanks to Mdm Wong, I am also able to get enough practice in order to help me understand Science concepts better. Thank you Mdm Wong!

Tan Yi Xin
Combined Science Student from CHIJ Katong Convent Sec

I started Science Tuition in Sec 3 as I had been struggling with Science from the start. With my tutor’s help, I managed to see improvements in Sec 3 in all my exams. Studying for Science also became easier as my tutor would provide me with extra notes that were way better than my school notes. My tutor was also always willing to answer my questions outside of lesson time.

Josephine Li 
 Combined Science Student from Anderson Sec

Combined Science was my worst subject in Sec 3, so my parents engaged a Science Tutor at the end of Sec 3 to help me in my Sec 4 year. My tutor, Miss Chan, was quick to start lessons and she has helped me a lot in the span of half a year. I started doing noticeably better in my exams in Sec 4, scoring B4 or B3 when I used to get E8 in Sec 3. I am confident that by O Levels, I will be able to get an A1!

Keith Liew 
 Combined Science Student from Anderson Sec

My Science Tutor, Siti, was so helpful right from the start. I was getting F9s in my Combined Science throughout Sec 3, and with her help, I started getting Bs in my exams in Sec 4. With Siti’s help, I could also attempt Science questions with more ease. It was no longer hard to learn the new concepts as Siti had helped to build a strong foundation in my understanding of Science.
