When we were in school, we used to run away from the Physics class, quite literally. We’d always hide in the bathrooms and wait for the bell to ring before going back to class. It was not until we started taking physics tuition when we realised how interesting the subject truly is. We were too scared of it from the beginning and we never put effort into understanding it.
We would all go to physics tuition together and make sure that none of us left the room confused. You might think that we are saying all this to convince you into liking physics, but we are not. We truly are grateful that we found the perfect way for making the best out of our tuitions. This is why we are here today, to discuss our foolproof ways to make the best out of your physics tuition:
- Regular sessions
If you want to excel in Physics, it is essential that you attend your tuition sessions regularly. It is important that you schedule sessions at least twice a week and track your progress with your instructor and other classmates. Skipping sessions and not discussing your problems will not help you. It will become a bigger hurdle to your understanding of physics.
You need to make sure that you are constantly participating in the sessions with enthusiasm and taking note of everything the instructor says. Before you go for your next session, it is essential that you revise previous notes and discuss them with your instructor in case of an ambiguity. This will clear out misunderstandings and give you a clear path to understanding physics. Prepare a list of books, papers and notes that you need to take to class. Entering with all your essentials is a good sign.
- Don’t jump to conclusions
Be patient if you are not getting everything right away. Always remember that it takes some time for you to improve. If you have any doubts, ask your instructor and don’t be hard on yourself because you can still manage to achieve good grades. The main job of the tutor is to help you understand what you have already learned at the school. The reason why it will take some time to get ahead in school is because the tutor will explain everything in detail and make sure you understand.
Instead of memorising theories, it is more beneficial if you clear your concepts and understand the definitions. For you to excel in this field, it is important that you understand everything before using your knowledge to apply it to other things.
Instead of giving your tutor a hard time, try cooperating with them. Tutors are familiar with the different approaches and several learning techniques. So, listen to them carefully and try to enhance your knowledge with their expertise.
Do not expect a miracle, you won’t see a change right after your first class. It will take some time but you will find the right balance.
