The Best IP Science Tutors in Singapore

Science Tutor Conducting A Lesson

Importance of IP Science Tuition

Unlike the O Level Science syllabus, the IP Science syllabus does not require students to take national examinations at the end of their course. However, that is not to say that students can take a backseat in their education – learning IP Science is extremely crucial as it sets the foundation for Junior College education in the future.

With the many differences between IP Science and Express Science, it might not be enough to study with online resources – as most of the resources online are catered to the Express Science syllabus. Instead, one might find it more beneficial to engage a qualified IP Science Tutor instead.

With an IP Science Tutor, students will receive targeted help from professionals who are familiar with the unique IP syllabus, allowing them to teach IP Science to the best of their abilities, tweaking their lesson plans to suit the IP curriculum.

How Much Does IP Science Tuition Cost

The average IP Science Tuition rates greatly differ depending on the type of tuition and the reputation of the tutor. For instance, the rates for tuition centres are around $200-$460, but can go up to $400 or even more for tuition centres with high reputability and highly qualified tutors. For private home tutors, the rates can go as low as $35 an hour, but can go up to $90 or more per hour depending on the tutor’s qualifications and teaching experience.

Challenges Faced By IP Science Students

Feeling Overwhelmed By The IP Curriculum

The Integrated Programme (IP) is a programme that fast-tracks students straight to the A Levels or the IBDP, while bypassing the O Levels. Being an extremely rigorous programme, it is common to see many IP Science students experiencing immense stress and anxiety due to the intensity of the IP curriculum.

IP Science students are required to stay on top of the curriculum at all times, as well as hone skills such as public speaking and presentations in order to do well in this demanding programme. Moreover, IP students are also encouraged to stay on top of current affairs and social issues, on top of revising their school content.

Moreover, IP students are also encouraged to stay on top of current affairs and social issues, on top of revising their school content.

Poor Examination Performance

It is often a common sight to see IP Science students study hard for their various tests and examinations, but end up scoring poorly in their IP Science examinations. This can be attributed to poor examination performance, meaning that the work and revision that IP Science students put in into revising their IP Science content does not translate into good examination results.
MindFlex recommends that IP Science students complete their revision and practice papers in a simulated examination environment and under timed conditions, so as to ensure that they are able to perform well in their actual examinations.

Hectic Schedules and Timetables

IP Science students often have numerous after-school commitments such as their Co-Curricular Activities (CCA), as well as their after-school Supplementary classes that many IP schools tend to organise to help students to keep pace with the intense IP curriculum.
As a result, many IP 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 IP Science Tutor

Benefits of Hiring Science Tuition

1. Gradually Ease Students Into Syllabus

The PSLE year is a crucial year for students as they are required to sit for their national examinations. This might result in increased anxieties and worries amongst both parents and students, as they are worried about the student’s grasp of the Science subject.

With a PSLE Science Tutor, students will be provided close guidance on the PSLE Science syllabus, and are able to provide targeted practices, mock tests and extra resources which will definitely help with the student’s PSLE preparation.

2. Help Students Build a Strong Foundation

By engaging an IP Science Tutor, students will receive help and guidance in the Science subject. Through the tutor’s targeted practices, students will be able to build a strong foundation in the subject, which will definitely be beneficial for their future studies.

It is crucial for students to get a strong foundation in IP Science – even though there are no national examinations, a strong grasp of the Science concepts will make it easier for students to cope in their future education in Junior College.

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 IP 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. Provide Additional Notes and Practice

A problem faced by students is the lack of additional resources and practices, especially since the IP syllabus is less common compared to the N/O Level syllabus.

Hence, IP Science Tutors are especially useful as they will be able to provide students with study resources and even their own collection of past year papers. With these additional resources, students will have an easier time preparing for their examinations.

What To Look For in An IP Science Tutor

Experience Teaching IP Science Students

The Integrated Programme (IP) is a highly rigorous programme. As such, it is imperative that you check if the tutor you are interested in engaging has experience in teaching other IP students. With such experience, they will then be familiar with the current IP 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 IP Science to students of similar levels or have the personal academic achievements to teach IP Science.

Qualifications

Top IP 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 IP 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.

 

Commitment

It is also very important to check if the IP 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.

Patience

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

 

Testimonials from IP Science Students

At the start of the year, I was so worried that I would do badly for my PSLE Science. That is why I asked my parents to help me get a tutor from MindFlex. My tutor, Mdm Lee, is so kind and helpful! When I don’t understand any topic, she will patiently teach me until I understand it. I am now more confident in Science class as well. Thank you Mdm Lee!
