Studies by researchers have uncovered that there’s a close relationship between student’s high performance in physics and a positive attitude in the subject. According to the scientists, there’s a close link between a student’s attitude towards the subject and their capacity to reason and cognitive ability. Therefore, their attitude influences students’ performances.
We can therefore easily see that the most crucial step that any student can take to improve their physics results is adopting a positive outlook to the subject. Such an approach, not just with physics tuition classes, will make it easy for you to take on the following steps and succeed.
Step 1: Set Your Goals
Before you can move an inch towards improving your physics result, you need to have a clear picture of where you are going. A famous archer once told his contemporary, the surest way to miss a target is by not seeing it. The same goes for your physics results. If you are not clear about your goals, you will miss the target.
All the physics tuition won’t help you if you are not sure of what you want to achieve, whether you want to move from a ‘C’ to a ‘B’ or from ‘C’ to ‘A.’ But the goal must be reasonable, achievable and stretching.
Step 2: Establish Timelines
After you have set the goal, you have to confine it within a reasonable timeline. Categorise your goals into different horizons. You can have goals to achieve by the next class test, next month or a year from now.
Whatever the timeline, it has to be reasonable and commensurate to the goal. For instance, you can have goals to achieve in two weeks, while others can take several months.
Parents too, need to have reasonable expectations and not demand improved results immediately they enrol their kids for physics tuition.
Step 3: Map Out a Plan
Once you have sorted out the goals and timelines, it is only reasonable to come up with a ‘game-plan’ or map out a plan of how you will achieve the goals within the set timelines.
In the long-term plan, you can include activities such as “enrolling for physics tuition.” But, you must detail what you will do to move toward achieving the target, and the time limits of each activity. For instance, if you have a goal of attaining a ‘B’ in your next physics class test which is in a week’s time, your plan cannot include activities that exceed one week.
Step 4: Executing Your Plan
Confucius, the famous Chinese philosopher, said, the essence of having knowledge is applying it.
Now that you know the steps to improve your physics results, the next and crucial step is executing your plan.
It may seem obvious and trivial when we say, do what your plan dictated, however, people comply with this step the least. Many students find themselves engaging in other activities when their plan stipulates, for instance, that they should be attending a physics tuition session. Other students are keen on reading other subjects, which also happen to be their favourite subjects when they should be handling a physics topic.
You could have set ideal goals, on perfect timelines and mapped them out in an excellent plan. However, you also need a faithful execution, driven by a positive attitude, so your efforts will be bear fruit.
