Science doesn’t have to be dry!
Science, if nothing else, can be very difficult. The concepts of physics and chemistry can take a lot of work to master. And students frequently complain about how ‘boring’ the subjects are. At School is Easy Tutoring, we believe the above sentiments may be the result of a student’s inability to see how important science is in our daily lives.
The high school science curriculum covers a lot of course material. Semestered schools have students learning all of the science material within half of the school year which puts even more pressure on students to digest the concepts more quickly. In their science classes students have labs (hands on) combined with lectures.
On top of the academic pressure, high school students are at a vulnerable age and are easily distracted by the social element of the classroom. Teenagers can be incredibly self conscious and this takes away from their ability to learn. They miss important concepts in class and then they are lost when they are at home trying to do their homework.
This is when a science tutor in Vancouver can really help. Our science tutors can put students at ease by making sure they have fully understood what was covered in class. Our science tutors can make science come alive. Our tutors show the everyday connections. They make subjects like chemistry, physics and biology relevant in the lives of your children. For example:
Our tutors can show your child how Newton’s laws of physics can be observed in a game of hockey. They can point out to students how elements in the periodic table are present in everything from the food they eat to the toys they play with.
In short, our tutoring agency can supplement and reinforce classroom learning and make science fascinating for your child.

That’s how we deliver great results, such as the experience this student had with one of our science tutors:
Samin is a gifted teacher whose approach to difficult courses strikes confidence in any of his students. With a strong academic background and a wealth and depth of knowledge in the sciences Samin teaches material in a way that is easy for even a novice to understand. A strong point of his teaching agenda is his priority to solve problems. The variety of problems I encountered with Samin in his physics tutoring sessions made me confident that I wouldn’t see a problem on the exam that was foreign to me. Samin has helped me take the leap from a fractured idea of physical/mathematical concepts to a logical and realistic approach to problem solving in physics. I feel confident now on my physics exams more than ever. My grades are going up! – JF Physics student Feb, 2015.
Why bother hiring a science tutor in Greater Vancouver? I could tutor my kids myself!
That’s a sentiment a lot of parents may have. And we don’t doubt some guardians make for great tutors. But teaching science can have its own set of unique challenges. For many of us, it’s been a long time since we’ve been in school. So unless we’ve chosen a career that has us practising scientific formulas regularly, we might be a little fuzzy on how to explain the concepts to our kids.
Now, that may not be an issue for parents who have a career in a scientific field. But for many of those experts, their knowledge has often become second nature at this point. Veterans of the science field may run into challenges when trying to make complex ideas easy to understand. And doing that while making these concepts easily accessible to a complete beginner? That can be a tall order.
Also, parent/child relationships can become strained when a parent teaches their own child
That’s where a professional science instructor from our tutoring agency can help.
