Science is fun to learn; it usually involves engaging experiments and other hands-on activities. But its exams can be challenging for many students, even for those with a good understanding of the subject. This issue is often due to students’ lack of techniques to analyse and answer science tests effectively.
If you live in Catford, we have tutors in the area who specialise in GCSE Sciences and are ready to help your child. Our tutors will evaluate your child’s strengths and weaknesses in science and soon identify areas in their understanding that need attention. The tutor can then target and improve any gap in the students knowledge.
In a classroom setting, teachers set the pace of learning often according to the class syllabus. Even if a few students find it hard to grasp a particular part, the rest of the class will move to another to follow the schedule. This is where our tutors come in. We will help your child catch up and be ready for the next exam.
We focus on three study areas: topic knowledge, revision techniques and exam strategies. We will devise a tailored lesson plan for your child, covering topics they find the hardest. To help them prepare better for exams, our tutors will help them master revision techniques that work best for them. We go beyond rote memorisation; with us, your child will learn to analyse a concept and its applications. Our tutors will also train your child with exam strategies that can help them zero in on a problem presented in a test question and write an answer effectively. We do all of these according to your child’s learning pace.
By focusing on such areas, we help students build their test-taking confidence. That’s a huge boost for students, especially to those who always feel anxious and confused over exams.
At The Tutor Surgery, we make the tuition process easy and convenient for you and your child. All you have to do is select a tutor from our team; we’ll suggest the most suitable tutor based on the subject, your child’s current and target marks and your location. From there, we arrange the schedule of the lessons and the “Meet The Tutor” appointment before the start of the trial lessons.
We provide “Meet The Tutor” at no charge. It is an informal meeting at the tutor’s home (where the rest of the lessons will be held as well) that allows your child to build rapport with their tutor. We understand that a good, harmonious relationship between the student and the tutor plays a key role in the success of the lessons. It’s also an opportunity for you to ask questions about the tailored lesson plan.
There will be regular updates on your child’s progress. We recommend that you bring or fetch your child from the tutor’s home, so you and the tutor can discuss the child’s development and next targets.
