The only goal my daughter seems to have for herself is to always get better than what she is at any given moment. She does quite well in achieving those goals too. Every now and again though, there will be a hiccup or a bump in the road. That is what we came across not long ago when she brought home just an average score on a major physics exam. She told me that she had studied hard, and I believed her. I also believed her when she said her only hope was attending physics tuition for Singapore students.
She had already done the homework necessary for it. There are tutors for so many different things, so it was no surprise that physics tutors are plentiful in the area. Sciences are a big deal in our schools, and it seems with every generation it is just getting more and more focus in general. My daughter knew that physics was important because the world is not the world without physics. Just about everything can be connected back to physics in some way, so she knew that this was a hurdle that she had to get through in order to get into the college of her dreams.
I thought having a tutor was a great idea, and I really liked the one that she ultimately picked out. He is an expert on the subject, and he has even written books that have been published on physics. I looked over his website, and every question I had about it was answered right there on the site. One thing I really appreciated is that he teaches all the students himself. If he is not able to make a class for any reason, which is rare, then he reschedules it. He is that committed to his students, and he helps all of them get past whatever hurdles they are facing as far as physics is concerned.
