Few things are as beneficial and effective to your child’s academic performance (amongst other things) as one-to-one tuition. There are a myriad of reasons why parents choose private tutoring for their children; especially for a subject as complex and multi-faceted as science, as no doubt, many parents have long forgotten the scientific skills and understanding that they themselves developed during their time at school decades ago.

With the changing HSC syllabus and extensive content of the IB syllabus, hiring a professional science tutor can not only significantly help boost grades – leading to quantifiable results that are reflected on the report card and beyond – but also develop crucial skills needed to succeed in their yearly exams, excel in the all-important university admission tests and increase an overall sense of confidence and self-esteem. Even the approach to learning and the school environment as a whole is bound to improve. Whether your child is planning on entering scientific professions or something completely unrelated, there’s no doubt STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) are truly the skills of the future – meaning those proficient in these abilities have a far greater chance of being at success. Here are a number of key ways that a science tutor can significantly help boost your child’s grades.

With increasingly growing class sizes in many public and private schools, often of 25-30 or more students per class, 1 on 1 tutoring has never been more important. Dedicated personal time with a science tutor in this academic discipline is a huge benefit for your child. With large class sizes, many science teachers are overworked and unable to or can’t afford to stray off the planned course curriculum, which quickly is problematic for those students having difficulty keeping up, or alternatively, those who are ahead and can be exceptional in the subject. The science tutor experience allows for further knowledge and understanding – whether that be through teaching correct scientific thinking and methodology, through to providing advice or a perspective on working and thriving in a scientific world and in a career in a scientific field.

Analytical and problem-solving skills are fostered through study time; especially when a tutor is overseeing the process in real-time and can correct mistakes and give advice immediately. Whether your child is struggling to keep up or just needs an extra push, tutoring facilitates the student’s

learning both in and out of the classroom. Through sessions with one of our qualified, carefully screened and hand-picked science tutors that are not only passionate about the subject but who also have vast and diverse experiences in the scientific field, such as Masters level qualifications, your child will gain practical and essential skills necessary to thrive in an academic world.

Another benefit of a science tutor is that they are incredibly experienced with specific techniques that utilise the student’s strengths, allowing for the student to feel more confident and less stressed about the subject. Furthermore, if you think your child’s grades are being affected by their disability, C3 Education Group will match you with a tutor who specialises in such areas.

Additionally, with the guidance and help of a tutor, your child can be taught beyond the syllabus, supplementing it. This is done by reinforcing the crucial syllabus concepts, of course, and beyond. With the bespoke attention of a science tutor, they will be challenged and motivated in the best way. Through individual study time, students struggling with homework and assessments can ask for help. Many students are a lot more at ease when working with a tutor, as opposed to a parent – this may be due to a number of reasons, including someone guiding them through their learning without fear of judgement. Most importantly, a tutor can help your child establish solid study habits and learning skills, which will no doubt help them in all stages of their education.

Tutoring can be a top-up to the education children receive in school if they are struggling and falling behind, or, on the other hand, it can be a way for gifted students to thrive even more. The tutors at C3 Education Group are flexible and adaptable to your and your child’s schedule, establishing a successful track record of providing quality education for school-aged students, from Kindy to Year 12. No matter what specific discipline, be it general science tutoring, biology, physics or chemistry. With the new curriculum being introduced to Year 11 students in 2018 in regards to their HSC exam, it is important to know how this affects your child’s studies so that they are able to achieve or be on the path towards attaining a Band 6 result. We are proud to ensure our students are inspired to be critical thinkers, exceptional writers and confident speakers. Our students become better global citizens, dedicated learners and respectful individuals. As quality educators, we foster a ‘growth mindset’ in and beyond the classroom environment. Our success is due to the collaborative approach between school teachers and C3 educators, parents and students.

As you can see above, hiring the right science tutor may be one of the best and most worthwhile investments for your child. Apart from helping them thrive in an academic setting and all the benefits that come with attaining the marks that they want and need for their future endeavours, both their technical and soft skills will be significantly improved, helping them in many aspects of academic and adult life. With science, math, engineering, and technology careers growing at a fast rate, the benefits of hiring a science tutor are plenty.
