Our Unique Teaching Formula

How can you/your child benefit from tuition?

Having your child/yourself enrolled in a tuition course can create a significant impact on the learning abilities of your child. In order to achieve the best of your/your child’s potential, you need to take learning one step further. Say goodbye to the good old days of simply going to the schools to attend classes and leaving the learning there. With the development of  private tuition centres, your child will have the advantage to receive special teaching methods from a reputable tutor. This means that extra attention is given to their learning, thus accelerating their learning potentials.

Another advantage of having a tuition is that it gives a good chance of reinforcing the new topics learned earlier from school. It also gives a good chance of clarify difficult topics and making it simpler to understand. With a home tuition, it will be possible for the child to accelerate their learning process. Having you children tuition lessons after school will also spare them from doing unhealthy hobbies after school such as getting hooked to computers and different video games.

The overall confidence and performance of your child can be developed through tutoring. This can be very beneficial on the development of you/your child.  Tutoring can spare you from worrying too much if you/your child has received quality education or not. Nothing compares to the comfort of having a peace of mind knowing that you/your child’s learning potentials are maximized. And that you/your child is getting the quality of education that he or she deserves.

How to Motivate Yourself to Study — Top 7 Techniques

1. Imagine all your friends are studying

Peer pressure is a strong albeit invisible force especially if you’re a teenager. Research suggests that teens are more likely to commit themselves to doing something when a large number of their friends are also doing it. To instantly motivate yourself to study, form a mental picture of all your best friends in a room studying intensely, as if preparing for a major exam. You will begin to feel guilty not studying and lazing around.

Whenever you feel like quitting in the midst of your study session, imagine your friends are still focused on their books. Even if your friends aren’t the hardworking type, this trick will work just as effectively, just remember to quit using facebook/twitter so that you can really convince yourself that your peers are studying.

2. Study at the same time everyday

This method, again, makes use of guilt. Try studying at the same time for 5 consecutive days, the time of the day doesn’t matter so I suggest that you find a time which you will definitely be free everyday of the week. Don’t be bothered by the duration which you study but do take note of the time which you stopped.

The first 5 days require some self-discipline on your part but by the fifth day, you would have formed the habit of studying whenever the clock strikes 5 pm (or any time which you think you would be free). If you happen to skip a day by accident, write on a piece of paper/post on fb/twitter that you have skipped your study session today because of ___. I can assure you that you will be overwhelmed by guilt if you skipped your study session again on the following day.

3. Think of ways to reward yourself beforehand

A common but effective way to motivate yourself to study is to think of something you enjoy doing/eating. Before you start studying, imagine yourself doing the things you enjoy after you’ve studied for a certain amount of time. It is extremely important that you start studying immediately after you’ve decided on the way(s) to reward yourself so that you won’t be distracted by the rewards. If you need help thinking of ways to reward yourself, you might find this article useful.

4. Create a study plan

The study plan should include the subjects you are studying(listed in the order which you will be covering them), the topics of the subjects and the resources you will need (e.g. notes/textbooks/online guide etc.). Prepare the resources beforehand to reduce the likelihood of being distracted while searching for them.

Be realistic when creating your study plan and try to break down the topics into smaller subtopics if possible. It is suggested that you do not include more than 5 topics/subtopics in your study plan for a single study session. You can always expand your plan after the study session.

5. Don’t associate pain and misery with studying

The reason behind your “lack of motivation” could be your fear of the “pain” which you imagine yourself going through before you even start studying. Get rid of this negative thought and tell yourself that you will find joy in studying. To do this, start and end the study session with your favourite subject/the subject which you are good at. Overtime, this will effectively remove the mental barrier and change your perception of studying.

6. Know the reason for studying

On a blank piece of paper, create a table with 2 columns, on 1 column write down 20 reasons why you need to study. On the other column, write down the 20 benefits of studying. For example, the first column can contain reasons such as: “because I need to get into a good college/university” or even “because i need to show my classmates that I’m not weaker than them“, the second column can contain long-term & short-term benefits like “a high-paying job” or “respect from classmates who think I can’t study“.

7. Find a comfortable spot

Your environment can also help to motivate yourself to study. Look for a quiet and comfortable spot in your house and reserve that spot exclusively for studying. Alternatively, you can also spend some time tidying up your room and your books so that it looks visually pleasing. You will be much more inclined to study when studying seem more like a hobby instead of a full-time job.

Top 5 Most common study mistakes

Study mistake#1: No Focus

The main difference between studying and reading is that studying requires you to focus on a specific topic/subject broaden your knowledge on that topic/subject. Unless you’re a genius, your brain cannot simultaneously process and digest multiple types of information. This means that if you try reading a history book and a science book at the same time, you won’t be able to absorb information as effectively compared to reading 2 history books at the same time.

Study Mistake#2: Not thinking

Thinking is a combination of questioning and brainstorming. Many students who fail to do well in exams despite long hours of studying everyday has a tendency of accepting knowledge without actually processing it. This is analogous to eating massive amounts of food without even exercising, the food will just turn into fats and become useless.

On the other hand, questioning the information you receive and brainstorming on various applications of the information is similar to working out intensely after a heavy meal, the food will be digested and processed into muscles. Your brain does not accept whatever you squeeze into it, you have to translate that information into a language which your brain understands.

Study Mistake#3: Not enough practice

A common misconception is that studying is simply reading textbooks and taking down notes. Studying is about understanding. The best way to fully understand any topic is to think and ponder over it from different angles. The best way to do so is through practicing examination questions, especially tough questions which are beyond the scope of your knowledge.

As examiners usually want students to do badly in exams, they will twist the questions in such a way that you have to infer and make logical guesses. This trains you to look at information from different angles and think of different possibilities.

Study Mistake#4: Inconsistency

You can’t expect to see results by studying just 1 week before the exam. Similarly, you can’t expect your study efficiency to stay the same if you don’t put in the habit to study regularly. Inconsistent study habits is the most detrimental to your efforts to become A grader. This means whatever your study plan is like, you have to make it a point to stick with it until you become certain its time for you to have a new plan.

Study Mistake#5: Not clearing doubts in time

Most students do not ask questions in class, neither do them actively participate in class discussions. A recent study suggested that students who are active participants in class discussions tend to score much higher scores in exams compared to their less enthusiastic peers. If you do not clear your doubts in time, you will begin to make false assumptions and form misconceptions in your mind, this problem becomes extremely fatal when the topics are interconnected. You will start feeling that everything doesn’t make sense, soon your results slip will reflect the same thing.
