Make science easy with the help of a private tutor!
Hiring a private science tutor could have your child putting on their best Bill Nye bow tie, and staying on track with their science studies. However, as it turns out, even Bill Nye’s shows tend to only scratch the surface. Our tutors will go as deep as needed to make sure anything and everything in science classes are being understood by your child.
Your child will be able to develop scientific comprehension skills that will help them make sense of physics, chemistry, biology and everything in between. (Well, as much as possible in our observable universe!)
Discover how regular, one-on-one sessions with a science tutor can improve grades
As amazing as teachers are, they have so many children to focus on that it can be difficult to ensure each child is effectively grasping the curriculum. Thus, a tutor can show them how to learn as opposed to just what to learn. Our tutoring agency provides professional science tutors in Victoria, Nanaimo, Comox, Courtenay and elsewhere on Vancouver Island. They are not only incredibly well-versed in science curriculum, but extremely resourceful in their teaching methods.
Here are just some of the skills our at-home science tutors will guide your child through:
- Empirical observation: Your child will learn how to use what they see before, during, and after an experiment to draw valuable conclusions. They will learn to use their senses as a tool for objectivity while conducting and studying experiments.
- Research, reasoning, and logic: Our science tutors will teach your child how to think about science instead of them being overwhelmed by science’s complex patterns and theories. They will explore course content carefully and methodically with your child to ensure they are maximizing comprehension.
- Statistical literacy: A big part of science is accurately analyzing data to draw authentic conclusions. Your child will learn how to acquire data, understand data, and use data to evaluate and conduct research.
- Asking questions: Sometimes the best way to learn something is to talk about it. Our tutors will create an open dialogue that encourages kids to think logically, draw conclusions on their own and ask questions! One of the pillars of the scientific world is being able to ask relevant questions and seek valid proof to back it up. Science is about discovery, right?! The more your child becomes curious about what they are learning, the more they are actually becoming literate in scientific thought.
Why should a child be capable at science?
Science teaches us theories and observations about the world around us. It encourages minds to be curious, analytical, conscious and, ultimately, excited about discovering new things. It’s important to instill scientific thought early on because it can help facilitate answers to questions a child will inevitably have about the world around them as they grow up.
Furthermore, if a child is able to keep their science grades up, there will be a plethora of opportunities for them upon completing grade school on Vancouver Island and with the B.C. school curriculum. Whether your child has expressed interest in a future career in science or not, sometimes it’s best to keep that door open regardless. This is because we live in a rapidly developing world fueled by technological growth and scientific discovery. For example, we’ve written about why kids should learn to code as a basic skill. And, as we can see, this logic and science-based reasoning is becoming more and more prevalent in today’s computer-driven world.
Obviously working with a science tutor and passing science class doesn’t mean your child will become the next Galileo. But, our science tutors would probably agree it is a worthwhile subject to delve into! Who knows if your child will ever express an interest to take it to the next level and find a rewarding career path in the process!
