Here Are Some Frequently Asked Questions…
How Big Are Your Classes?
On average we have about 12 to 15 students in a class.
Our weekend classes are usually full – 17 students in a class.
We started as a tiny outfit with 6 students in a class. The number grew to 9, then 12 and now 17! While no amount of convincing can convince you how effective my lessons are, I’m sure you will agree with me that unless my classes were effective and engaging, I will not be able to have such a large class size!
How Are Your Classes Run?
For starters, every time your child comes for my lesson, I are certain that he will leave having learnt something new!
Each lesson is broken into 2 parts.
In the first part of the lesson, I will go through basic Chemistry concepts, and give numerous examples to help the student understand what we are learning this for (real life applications) and how to use it effectively.
I do this because many students complain that they have very little idea on what’s going on in school. And sometimes, while a student may understand what’s being taught, there could be other best practices to help save time and effort in the exam.
The second part of the lesson involves application and problem solving. I highlight to each student how concepts may be combined, how they may be tested and common mistakes not to make! This is especially effective for students who complain they “know what is being taught but don’t know how to apply“.
While it is my job to ensure that your child understands what is being taught, he also needs to take responsibility to ensure that he is able to recall and apply these concepts, especially to new problems and situations – this basically means he also needs to put in effort and finish the homework assigned!
Is there homework?
The short answer is yes.
There is some amount of homework but completion is optional. The main purpose of the homework given is to build capability – it should be something he can complete in an hour or so.
However, we also understand that some school teachers will overload students with more homework than they can already handle – so we leave it as an optional choice.
At the back of each set of homework questions are answers your child can refer to, to ensure he is on the right track. If he is unable to get to the final answer, we welcome him to ask us for a more detailed solution in the next lesson.
Having said that, we believe that a certain amount of effort needs to be put in before a student can start seeing permanent improvement. Over the years, we’ve noticed that the students who improve the most are those who put in the most effort.
