Similarly, making flash cards and sticky notes and highlighting the main points of information in the book with help a lot for preparing for your exam.

Get Help From a Tutor: This is a very easy and effective way to prepare for exams. Tutors are professional, skilled and experienced in dealing with the students. A recent survey shows that student who hired a private tutor did well in exams than those who did self studies. You must be careful in hiring tutors. Always hire a skilled and experienced tutors because they use psychology to teach according to the perception of the student. You can hire tutors from tuition agency.

Revise Everything Before Exam: We keep learning new things and keep forgetting old. That is why revising everything that we have studied from time to time is very necessary. Remember to revise everything a day before appearing in exam.

Stay Away From Stress: Exam time is pressure time. Students are at stress during it. If there is a question you can not answer, don't panic. Keep calm. Take a deep breathe and go with the questions you can answer first. At last answer the question you don't know. Try to answer as much as you can. Don’t worry at all, all the hard labor you have done will pay you with  good result.

Difference between tuition centre and private tuition:


In general, tuition centre refers to an institution where students go tuition centre for tuition and make their study in a group of students whereas private tuition means tutor visiting to the student’s home and providing tuition to student at home. These days, private tuition at home is getting much more popular and its scope is also getting wider. In private tuition, flexible time is set up for both tutor and students whereas in tuition centre flexible time is not always possible.

In tuition centre, the number of student is always maximum where the tutor may not give full attention to all the students whereas in private tuition the number of student can be just one or two where the tutor can give maximum attention to a student. There are advantages as well as disadvantages on tuition centre and private tuition. The good thing about tuition centre is: their tuition free is generally low than private home tuition because tuition centre has many student for one session. However, student need to travel to the tuition centre. So, they are wasting time on traveling to tuition centre.

According to a recent survey, it was shown that students who received private tuitions did better in their studies than to those who did tuition in tuition centre. Home tuition is also better and not expensive too as the tutor is looking just part time tutoring jobs out of office hours. They can also negotiate with parents and can do in affordable and reliable rate as tutor also don’t need their own space for classroom as they are traveling to student home. As tutor is on student’s home, parents are also together with them. So, tutor always try to give his best to teach student. Parents and tutors can discuss the problem with the student and can solve the problems as well. So, there will be mutual understanding among, parents, student and tutor. As a result, the teaching will be more productive and effective.

Nowadays, there are many home tuition agency that provides teachers for the parents in their home. So, the parents do not need to worry about looking for best tutor for their kids. They can choose the tutors they like from the home tuition agency. House Tutor is one of the best Singapore home tuition agency in Singapore.
