This Tutoring Program is Very Different
When I first looked into programs at the tuition centre at Bukit Timah, I honestly was not convinced that this was the route that my husband and I should take with our son. I had told my spouse that I would look into some tutoring programs because our son was struggling with some of his coursework, but I did not know that this was the answer. The main reason I felt this way was because it was not private instruction. I thought that if our son was struggling in a classroom setting already, then how would learning in another classroom setting be any different?
Well, I will be the first to admit that I was wrong. I knew that I had to look beyond just the surface of what this exact program teaches, and that is when I discovered that just because it is a similar setting does not mean that it will net similar results. I looked at the teaching methods of the tutor, and I could see that they were different than what our son was getting in his regular school. The classes at his school are a bit larger, and there is very little interaction in the physics class, which is where he was having most of his troubles.
With this tutoring program, the interaction is not only encouraged but it is a vital part of the tutoring. The tutor brings about such an excitement in his teaching, and the students do not feel any intimidation in contributing to his lessons or asking questions. Our son thrived in this program, and even his physics teacher at school was surprised that he was able to improve his grade so much. She now tells other parents who have kids struggling in her class about this tutoring program, and I know quite a few have used it.
