Thread: is this truth or BS?

    I had 2 tuition before. Chinese which I did badly and Maths which I excel and wanted to do better.

    For Chinese, I had a teacher that din motive nor encourage, thus tuition was to fill the gap.

    For Maths, it's the interest to learn more.

    Use tuition sensibly and it's a tool. Use it to just pressure the kid becomes stress. Parents play a role in guiding their kids and giving the support where necessary and should not blindly follow others.

    Try touching a koala when it's away from a eucalyptus tree. See if it's still docile and meek.

    not really a necessity but if your child happens to be weak in a subject and got lousy school teacher, and as parents, you can't help him much, then tuition is one option.

    Many hardworking/smart students in SG + Limited spots for premium courses in UNI --> competitive --> required to up one's game --> need more help/study materials to gain knowledge and to score better at others during exams --> sign up for tuition for extra courses.

    IF a parent choose to drop his/her child out from tuition,
    Less additional materials --> gains relatively less knowledge than counterparts who go for tuition --> ultimately loosing out in this competitive world.

    BTW, I know a tuition teacher who tutors a Cabinet Minister's son. Shhh

    This is an old thread from 6 months ago. I think most people forgot about it already. Please move on. Stop digging up threads to up your post count.
