Costs and Benefits Of Renting A Classroom For Tuition In Singapore

The Best Benefits of Renting a Classroom for Tuition in Singapore include: Reduced Cost Putting up your own tuition centre or learning centre can cost you tens of thousands of dollars on the rent alone. You have to factor in all the equipment you have to set up in the facility aside from the maintenance expenses. When you rent a classroom or do classroom rental, you only have to pay a fixed rate for every hour of usage. You can also book it for a week or a month of use with discounted rates. Low Risk for Beginner Tutors/Teachers Teachers or tutors need not spend on renovation and new furnishings. All they have to do is pay a fixed rate, go to work, and earn just by having a classroom rental. Utilities are also provided as part of the payment. The equipment to use are all advanced and top of the line which may be next to impossible for teachers who are starting out on a new tutorial business venture. Income Generation Is Quicker Through rented classrooms, teachers, tutors, and business owners can earn right away instead of spending too much money on starting a new physical tutorial center. Renting a classroom is a great way to start off a tutorial business without the hassles and stress. Professional and Highly Academic Conducting a tutorial session in a state of the art classroom raises its standards on professionalism compared to conducting it in every residence. There are also more academic supplementary lessons and activities that can be discussed within a rented classroom. The atmosphere is more academic which helps learners...

How To Perform Well For A Levels Chemistry Exams

Hi everyone, I am Hendra Wong,  O and A Level Chemistry Tutor at Bright Culture. Some students and parents come to me and ask “Hey Hendra, why can’t I perform well for A Level Chemistry? I failed my promos badly and for some other tests, I couldn’t get more than 50%. Do I need a very bright mind or a very smart brain to perform well?No guys, it is not the only factor we need. There are two main things we need in order to be better. The first one, is a bright plan, and the second one, is an effective study culture. From the past many years, I have observed that some students don t have enough practice and thus cannot perform well for the exams. Now, we summarize the effective study culture into 3 things. 3 Things You Must Do So, these are the 3 things that every JC student should do in order to perform better. Step 1, when you start a new chapter in school, you need to read and understand every single page from the school lecture notes. It s a bit too long sometimes, and honestly, sometimes you will feel a bit bored, but no choice. We have to do that. Step 2, summarize the main point from every chapter. So, when you do revision, you just need to go to the main points. Simple and fast. In Step 3, the most important thing we need to do is sufficient practice. You need to complete all questions from your school tutorial, and after that try past year exam papers including prelim, promos and...

Chemical Bonding For A Levels Chemistry

Hi everyone, I am Hendra Wong, A & O Level Chemistry Tutor at Bright Culture. Yesterday I ate cheese and bacon. Why cheese and bacon? Because Cheese starts with ?C ?, and Bacon starts with ?B ?. ?C ? and ?B ? sound like Chemical Bonding. This past few weeks, the J1 one students have been starting Chemical Bonding in school. They complain to me, wow, Hendra! Why are the notes so thick and scary? So different from Sec 3 ? But don’t worry. Sorry about the joke being a bit lame, now we continue. This very thick Chemical Bonding chapter, we can summarize in three different parts. Part one, the small stuff, like sigma and pi bond,are  those elements which can have more than 8 or less than 8 valence electrons dative bonding and dimer. Part two, those molecular shapes, when you start drawing the dot and cross diagram, after that, you identify the number of bond pairs and lone pairs of electrons and thus you know the molecular shape and the bond angle, right? That’s part two. Part three is about comparing and explaining the physical properties such as melting and boiling points, including those id-id,pd-pd and hydrogen bonding and so on. Part three: Comparison and explanation of physical properties of bonds. Today,for this short video, we do part three, about id-id, pd-pd and hydrogen (cut out chemical, it s supposed to be hydrogen) bonding. Okay, it s like this, if someone asked you, which has a higher melting and boiling point, NaCl, or HCl? How do we handle that question? Step 1: Identify whether these two...

Private Tutoring For Children – Top 10 Benefits

Private home tutoring has several benefits in addition to better grades at school. Here is a list of the top 10 reasons your child needs a private home tutor. #1. Little or no distractions In a classroom environment, a child’s performance can easily be affected due to noise and other interruptions from peer groups. If your child suffers from Attention Deficit Disorder this will happen frequently. A far less susceptible to interference and much more controllable environment is a private one-on-one tutoring. #2. Select your tutor Choosing a tutor that has the personality and style that’s best for your child is good and if you think it’s not working you can choose another one. In a school environment, if there is a personality clash with your child there’s pretty not much you can do about it because you are stuck with the teacher you are given. #3. Focus on specific areas If your child has problems in specific areas, a private tutor can focus his coaching on those areas to help him or her improve. School teachers are constrained by tough targets and time for subject coverage and therefore won’t be able to give the required attention their students needs. #4. Perspective A tutor has the ability to impart a new perspective on the subjects your child is learning. Your child can really get the upper hand with different techniques in teaching and extended knowledge when it comes to exam time. #5. Enthusiasm Specialized tutors are likely to have passion for the subject they teach, for instance, maths tutors. Your child could also be infected and develop the fascination...
