Everybody struggles with at least one subject at school, whilst some need to count on extra science tuition outside of school to get them through, others will just want to maximise their chances of getting the best grades possible – whatever your needs there is one thing that is certain, private science tuition might be a great idea for you.
The big question is, how can you find a local science tutor to teach you outside of lesson time that is right for you? – This is the burning question and in order to answer it we looked around our local area (Leicester) for any possible tips, after searching through we didn’t go for the cheapest option, we found a learning centre in the middle of Leicestershire that was run by a company called INICIO who provided our child with excellent Leicester based science tuition which worked really well for him and he ended up getting top grades for all GCSEs.
So what made us decide to send him to this learning centre? – It wasn’t the cheapest option but upon visiting the learning centre we could see how well structured it was and how much fun could be had whilst still learning all elements of science from chemistry through to biology. Here are a few tips found during our time and read more about online courses.
Tailored science tutoring
What really makes a big difference is when a science tutor can guide you through each step that most importantly is relevant to you or your child. By focusing on areas that need improvement and prioritising it can be easily achieved, if your child struggles with biology then the tutoring can be tailored towards additional time in that area, covering all areas is an easy way of achieving maximum possible results at any level.
Comfortable environment for science!
Inviting a local science tutor to your home can sometimes be a great learning experience, however this can prove quite difficult if this limits what they can learn due to some of the apparatus required. If things like a Bunsen burner is needed or perhaps a model body then you might find them a bit limited. On a quick note, always go for someone who is fully ensured to teach privately, you can also read our post regarding distance and regular education http://thescientifichomeschool.com/distance-regular-mba-education/ most will have to do this by law but always good to check this first before making an assumption.
For this reason it could be good to choose a private learning center and then take on a science tutor in that area.Whats most important is that you keep your options open and decide for yourself by using your eyes and ensuring your child will get on well with the tutor.
