Why certain student need a physics private home tuition?
My answer is simple,it is because not all student are able to focus while learning in a bigger group. Physics is an interesting subject but can be very complicated when the student are not focused. Usually there are lots of distraction when u study with 30 other student. Even though their eyes were staring on the white board as if they were listening to the lecture, however their mind was somewhere else. When their mind was distracted, by end of the class most of them couldn't understand what being taught by the teacher. To make it worse, they always got lower marks in exam and test.
Are these student are not good enough to score an 'A'?
I have encountered these kind of student almost every year. Some of them are actually clever enough to score an A in exam. It is very unfortunate. just because they cant stay focus longer than 10 minutes,they tend to misunderstood the concept and in the end lose interest in the subject. As their tutor it is my task to assist and explain things they dont understand and try to recreate interest on the subject. Once they get the feel good factor, the results will improve slowly .
Here is some screenshot conversation with one of my client.His daughter used to get D while in form-4 final exam. When i asked her, she hardly understand what was being taught in the class. She'd tried attending classes in tuition centre, but still no improvement. Early this year, her dad hired me as her private physics tutor.After a few months of intensive private classes, Alhamdulillah she starts to show lots of improvement especially in last mid term exam.
U can also ask your children to become close friend with those classmate who are really good in physics. Then try to form a small study group of 2-3 person. If u can afford, find an experience tutor to enhance their understanding.
As 2016 trial exam is approaching, i wish all SPM candidate a very good luck. Keep trying and never give up.
