Top 3 Mistakes Made By Parents When Choosing a Chemistry Tuition Centre
How to Identify mistakes in choosing a chemistry tuition centre.
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, while 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 many different subjects. Some claim to be a tuition specialist in all niches.
But the key question for most parents is, 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 years of experience and teaching.
In the case of our chemistry tuition at The Achievers Dream, we only teach Chemistry in the centre, and we have more than 800+ students who have tried our 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 had enrolled their child for Chemistry tuition just below their block, in a nearby shopping mall, or for others, they hire undergraduates that are well versed in chemistry to teach at their place.
While some lucky parents managed to get their problems solved, 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!
If the above mistakes have been well considered, here is a a final question to decide on a proper choice for chemistry tuition.
Is your current teacher/tutor effective? Are you making the mistake of choosing convenience over quality?
Effectiveness differs amongst students and their learning habits. Nonetheless, by considering all of the above questoins, we hope that this Article will help you to choose a suitable Chemistry service provider for your child and save time and money for you.
