Learning Experiences Redefined
One recurring feedback made by many batches of students is the dull and monotonous nature of textbook-based teaching. Students find it difficult to absorb the factual information by listening to the educators narrate the text that can be read independently. The tutors at the featured Bishan tuition centres do not solely rely on conventional teaching methods to impart knowledge and skills to students. Instead, the tutors capitalize on the proliferation of technology to augment learning methods, so as to generate interest and raise the efficiency of comprehension and information processing.
Watch e-learning videos to understand key concepts
Students who enroll in our featured tuition centres at Bishan will discover the effectiveness of using educational videos to learn. Many students may not realise how useful online resources can be, while they spend most of their leisure time playing games or browsing social media sites. If students encounter any complex term or concept that they do not comprehend, watching a video can overcome this learning obstacle.
The distinct difference between an educational video and textbook-based learning is that the former is more visually appealing. Research has shown that the more senses a student uses to learn (i.e. the 5 senses – sight, touch, hearing, smell and taste), the better the retainment of information. In this case, students who watch a video will utilize their hearing and sight, whereas reading a book only requires the sense of sight. Furthermore, a video can capture complex ideas that are difficult to explain in words. For example, a video can explain the process of photosynthesis.
Acquire knowledge conveniently with our Bishan Tuition Centres Apps
Whenever students require certain information, the first resource to rely on is the smartphone. The accessibility of the Internet has increased the degree of utilization in the recent times, such that educators have been studying the impacts of ‘Googlization’ on learning habits. To avoid the scenario of students lacking a clear sense of direction in finding reliable information, the Bishan Tuition Centres App was developed.
The app can be used by both parents and students to obtain essential information about the featured tuition centres in our regional portal. In addition, students can read the latest educational articles written by experienced tutors to improve their understanding of the various issues relating to education in Singapore. The articles cover many topics, such as general issues on the considerations to make when selecting either the Science or Humanities stream at the Upper Secondary or Junior College levels. More subject-specific issues are also discussed, like the essential tips that students should take note of when preparing for their JC Economics case study and essay examinations.
The key feature of this app is that students and parents need not browse through numerous pages on the search engine results to clear their doubts on the suitability of tuition centres to enroll with and academic-related matters.
Be well-informed about your studies with our Online Learning Blog
The educational journey of students at the primary, secondary and JC levels can be perceived as stressful and demanding. Students are required to attend lessons at schools, participate in extra co-curricular activities (CCAs, in short) and sign up for enrichment classes during the weekends. Due to the scarcity of time, students have to learn how to maximise their time and learn efficiently.
Therefore, Bishan Tuition Centres, Singapore features an Online Learning Blog that contains insightful articles written by prolific tutors from the tuition centres mentioned in this educational portal. The articles are accessible from our Bishan Tuition Centres app. The issues covered are not only to raise awareness about the study issues, but also provide useful resources that can complement with the revision process. For example, some tuition centres provide concise revision notes to summarise chapters, so that students can download and view at their own time.
While this Online Learning Blog is useful in providing an additional channel to acquire educational resources, students are highly encouraged to attend the primary, secondary or JC tuition programmes offered by the featured Bishan tuition centres, so as to become exam-ready.
