1. Lack of a Proper Curriculum
The curriculum is the BASIC foundation and the minimum requirement you need to look for in a good Chemistry tuition centre/tutor.
To begin with, many private tutors or even commercial tuition centres do not even have a curriculum.
In fact, we have heard many horror stories from parents that some Chemistry worksheets are hastily prepared or worse photocopied from assessment books just to be delivered in the lesson.
You may ask why is a meticulously planned curriculum important?
For parents who don’t know, a curriculum is like a plan of lessons that’s going to be conducted for every lesson.
Good tuition centres usually have at least four lessons planned ahead.
Those outstanding tutors or centres have the entire term planned out. Lessons plan in Achievers Dream – Chemistry Specialist is planned one term in advance.
Imagine if the centre does not even have a step-by-step plan to help students, how are you going to rest assured that your child is going to improve?
Question to ask your child’s tuition centre or tutor:
Can I look at the curriculum and SOW of what you are going to teach my child for your entire term?
Can I get some samples of your worksheets?
2. Lack of Subject Focus & Insufficient Track Record
Some tutors or centres teach all different subjects. Some claimed to be a tuition specialist in all niches.
But parents, are you looking for the ‘jack of all trades’ or the ‘master of one’?
Consider this, when you need some general medical advice, you can go to a GP.
However, if you need to seek professional medical advice with regards to your heart, you don’t go to a GP, but instead, you go to a heart specialist.
And you rarely get to hear of a doctor who specialises in both heart and lung.
Likewise, for tuition.
It takes time to master a vertical.
For tuition centres or tutors to be an expert in one area, it takes time too. This reputation takes time to build up and typically over the years.
Take for example, Achievers Dream, they only teach Chemistry in the centre, and they have more than 800+ students who have tried their method of teaching.
3. Going For Convenience Instead of Quality
Going for tuition programme is unlike going for grocery shopping. You can go to the nearby store and get your groceries but choosing a suitable tuition programme is like choosing a proper environment to plant your seed.
Many parents shared that before coming to Achievers Dream, they enrolled their child for Chemistry tuition just below their block, or some nearby shopping mall or some get some undergraduates to come to their place.
Some lucky parents managed to get their problems solved. But there are many parents who shared that their child did not see improvement even after six months! That’s as good as flushing down your hard earned money down the toilet bowl!
Question to ask your child or yourself…
Is your current teacher/tutor effective? Are you making the mistake of choosing convenience over quality?
