How Much Does Secondary 1 Science Tuition Cost

For Science Tuition at the Secondary 1 level, one can expect to pay about $35 to $90 an hour for private tuition depending on one’s academic needs and preferences of the tutor. This also depends on the type of tutor one wants to engage, as more experienced and qualified tutors tend to charge more for their classes, and vice versa. If private tuition is not suitable for your child, one may also consider sending their child to a tuition centre for their Secondary 1 Science tuition, where rates tend to range from $200 to $460 a month.

Challenges Faced By Science Secondary 1 Students

Leap in Syllabus

Some Secondary 1 Science students might face a huge learning curve as they begin their academic journey in Secondary School, which may cause them to feel lost and confused as they are introduced to new challenging concepts and topics under the subject. 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 in Secondary School.

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 a Secondary 1 Science Tutor in Singapore. With Secondary 1 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!

Lack of Confidence in Class

Some Secondary 1 Science students may be nervous and uncertain about asking and answering questions in class due to the fear of being judged by other classmates or teachers.

At MindFlex, our passionate and competent Secondary 1 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.

Time Management

Many Secondary 1 Science students face the problem of being unable to complete their Maths 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 Secondary 1 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 Science examinations.

Lagging Behind on Science Curriculum

At Secondary 1 Science, the inclusion of many new topics will cause some students, who are still struggling to grasp the basic scientific concepts, to lag behind other students. With these students lagging behind, it may cause them to feel demotivated and thus score badly for their Science papers.

Under MindFlex, we are home to many qualified and experienced Secondary 1 Science Tutors that are willing to provide their 100% to teach students the concepts that they are unsure of, so that students can once again catch up with the Syllabus along with their peers! That way, students will be equipped with the relevant knowledge and skill sets needed to answer the questions found in Secondary 1 Science papers.

Why You Should Engage A Secondary 1 Science Tutor

 

Benefits of Hiring Science Tuition

1. Gradually Ease Students into Syllabus

Secondary 1 Science is an important subject and year as students are expected to have a strong mastery of many complex topics and concepts. Therefore, it is important that students receive enough help so that they are able to build a good foundation to support them in their later academic years. With Secondary 1 Science Tuition, students will receive guidance from their tutors, allowing them to gradually ease into the difficult syllabus.

With a Secondary 1 Science Tutor, students will also be able to get a good head start as most tutors will aim to teach ahead of the school syllabus, allowing students to have an easier time learning the content in school.

2. Clear Student’s Doubts in Science

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

3. Build Strong Foundation for Science

In Secondary 1, students are expected to study all 3 Sciences – Chemistry, Physics and Biology. It is important for students to build a strong foundation for all 3 Sciences as the content learnt will be used in the future.

With a Secondary 1 Science Tutor, he/she will be able to guide students to achieve mastery for all Sciences. It will be beneficial to engage a tutor that is able to guide students in all 3 Sciences so as to make the most out of your money!

4. Aid Students in Weaknesses

Students might find it hard to correct mistakes or misconceptions without guidance from a qualified teacher. 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 a Secondary 1 Science Tutor, especially since it is the student’s first year studying the various Science subjects (Chemistry, Physics, Biology). With a Secondary 1 Science Tutor, 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.

What To Look For in A Secondary 1 Science Tutor

Currently Teaching/Taught Other Secondary School Students

It is imperative that you check if the tutor you are interested in engaging has experience in teaching other Sec 1 Science students. With such experience, they will then be familiar with the current Sec 1 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 Sec 1 Science to students of similar levels or have the personal academic achievements to teach Sec 1 Science.

Commitment

It is also very important to check if the Sec 1 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 Sec 1 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 Sec 1 Science tutor in order for your child to have a smooth Science learning journey.

Qualifications

Top Sec 1 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 Sec 1 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.

After receiving my results for my first exam in Sec 1, I was shocked as I had scored a F9 even though I studied very hard. Hence, I looked for a Science Tutor with the help of MindFlex. MindFlex recommended my Science Tutor, Zhi Qi, to me. She was very helpful and helped me to find out where I was weak. With that, Zhi Qi would give me extra practice on my weak areas every week.
