A solid understanding of science is crucial to help your children succeed in school. Good grades are needed in subjects such as physics, chemistry and biology as they are required for a number of post-secondary education programs. Knowledge of the scientific method is also necessary to making good decisions in life. Many stories in the media are based on scientific studies. In order to understand this information — and avoid getting tricked by bad representations — your kids must become scientifically literate.
Struggling with science homework and exams? Hiring a science tutor in the Okanagan with School is Easy Tutoring can help. School teachers won’t have enough time to help every child due to large class sizes. But with an in-home tutor, your children may learn faster through one-on-one attention that target their specific weaknesses.
Science is a rapidly changing field. What is considered a law can become an obsolete theory with further research. So our Okanagan science tutors make sure to stay on top of the latest developments in the scientific disciplines. That means your children will be better prepared to succeed in school and in the work world, where having this information will help your children do more than just get a good grade.
For example, we sometimes teach university-level science students who go on to work in research. In this setting, having the latest scientific information isn’t just important for crafting good lab studies — it’s essential.
If your child is struggling in science, you will be able to tell when that frustration enters the home. When a child says they ‘hate’ a certain subject, it is mostly likely because it is hard for them. It may not have been taught to them in a way that is understandable to them. That’s where a tutor can help.
Chemistry, biology, physics and other scientific disciplines require a lot of practice. Head knowledge isn’t enough — concepts must be applied through problem solving exercises and lab work. Unfortunately, it can be hard to find enough time to master each subject during classroom time, especially at the university level (which we do tutor as well).
For example, post-secondary students are expected to spend about 30 hours studying, excluding classroom time. That’s a lot of time! Almost every student can stand to benefit from a teacher who structures their learning outside of the lecture hall.
That’s why hiring a professional science tutor in the Okanagan is a good move!

These are all transferable skills that are essential to function regardless of whether your child chooses a career in the sciences or not. They are also usable in most every other subject.
