Is Science a blessing or a curse?

Science has completely changed the world at a very fast speed. From stone age till now, today we are in digital age and all this credit goes to science. Science has made the world small. Today, we can talk to people living in next part of the world using the telephone and smart phone. Not only this, we can make a video call, video conference using the internet. We can travel to different parts of the world in hours. Not only this, human beings have stepped on the moon and have sent robots to Mars for research purpose. Slowly we are planning to go to other planets of our solar system and all this will be possible because of science. Today we are able to treat deadly disease like cancer and AIDS because of the inventions made in the medical field.

Though we are benefited by science, there are many examples where science has turned into a curse. Sir Alfred Nobel has discovered dynamite to clear mountains so that it could be turned into productive land. But today same dynamite is used in wars to kill innocent people and causing mass destruction. Guns, bomb, missile, grenade, nuclear weapon, tanks, fighter plane were made for self-defense and to provide security and protect the country. But, today, these weapons are used to kill thousands of people in the name of war. These weapons killed millions of people in the first and second World war.

According to our Science Tutor, misuse of internet and technology has become another problem. These days people are wasting hours in social networking site. Likewise, cyber crime is growing rapidly by the means of internet and technology. Most people are getting depressed because of the excess internet addiction. The same internet and technology are used to hack bank’s account and other security platforms. Science has turned people evil, cruel and selfish. They are killing each other for territory, fuel, and power. Thousands of people are murdered and killed every year.

Science has both good and bad sides. It’s all about how smart we can use it. If we use it in a smart way for the betterment of this planet, then it will be a boon. If we use it, in a wrong selfish way to cause destruction, then it will be a curse.

Differences between good and bad tutor

There are many differences between a good and a bad tutor. A good tutor inspires his/her student into being a better version whereas a bad tutor doesn’t care about all round development of his/her student. There is a saying that bad tutor can even be worse than having no tutors. Here we are going to point out some main differences between bad and good tutor.
Communication Pattern:
A good tutor keeps communication open with students. Students feel free to ask questions with them and tutor encourages students to ask as many questions about the topic as possible
But with bad tutor students hesitate to open up. A bad tutor doesn't care if the students have understood the lessons or not.

Making lessons interesting:
A good tutor tries different teaching styles and innovative approaches to make the lesson interesting. Students are curious to know details about the lessons. But this is not in the case with a bad tutor. A bad tutor just tries to finish the lesson as soon as possible and doesn’t focus on giving wide knowledge about the lesson.
A good tutor replies to student’s questions and queries on time. Sometimes the tutor can be too busy with his personal and work life and can not reply to his/her students' email, call or text but as soon as possible they get back to them. But with a bad tutor, this is not the case. They try to avoid student's queries and questions as much as possible making many excuses.

The most important goal of a good tutor is making his/her students better than they were before along with good grades and making them stronger to withstand all the challenges that life brings. But this is not the goal of a bad tutor. A bad tutor works for money and has a goal of finishing the lesson.

A good tutor has a sweet, helpful, cheerful, supportive and friendly behavior. A good tutor has equal standards and expectation from his/her pupil regardless of their test scores. A bad tutor is judgemental to pupil, parents, and siblings. A bad tutor can be physically intimidating and verbally abusive.

Video games has become one of very important part of students. It is very difficult to find a student who doesn’t like video games. Playing video games can have both advantage and disadvantage.Traditional study blame video games for making students lazy, antisocial, depressed, inactive and obese.

Best exercises for school students

Everyone know that exercise is very important for proper physical, mental and social development of an individual. Students should do regular physical exercise as they are in the growing stage and exercise helps to build and shape a perfect height, weight and full development of the body. Students should do physical exercise at least 3-4 times in a week. Here, we are going to talk about the best 5 exercise for teenage students.

Push Ups :
Our Health Tutor mentioned push up as the number 1 exercise for everyone. Push ups are the number 1 body weight exercise where you lift your own body weight using your arms. This exercise primarily builds a stronger chest and also builds triceps, back, shoulder etc. We can say it builds all the muscles of our body.

Running outside in the nature can be full of fun. Running helps to build stronger legs. It maintains body weight and increase testosterone hormone. Likewise, it helps to maintain blood pressure and maintains a healthy and strong heart. Students can go for running in the morning or in the evening for at least 15 minutes.

Swimming is considered as the best fat cutter exercise. Swimming burns lot of calories. Our Science Tutor says that we can burn around 500 calories in an hour of normal swim. Swimming helps us to lose unnecessary weight and help  us build fit and stronger muscles.

Children love cycling because they feel independent and freedom in exploring the city. Cycling involves fast movement of the leg muscles which increases the heart rate and this helps to increase stamina of the children. A recent study tells that kids who do cycling are found more energetic and outstanding than those who do other exercise like swimming and running. It helps to boost testosterone hormone to maximum.


Dancing is considered as one of the kids favorite exercise. According to Pro Dance Center, regular dance practice can increase your child's flexibility, range of motion, physical strength and stamina. So if you are thinking of hiring a dance tutor, you can hire them from House Tutor, Singapore.

School Life Vs College Life

School life and college life both are very wonderful and unforgettable part of our life. There is still a debate between school life is better vs college life is better. To find out which one is better, we made a research with 400 people. Among those people 376 people reported as school life was the best life and most memorable life. Whereas rest concluded as college life was the most memorable and interesting life. So, finally we can conclude that school life is definitely most interesting and memorable life. We can distinguish life in school with college life.

Differences between school life & college life
  1.  School life is more disciplined than college life.
  2. There are lots of rules in school life like rule of attending school daily, attending school on time, keeping nails and hair short, wearing clean ironed uniform, and lots more but in college life there are fewer rules followed by few students.
  3. Students are forced to come in complete school uniform in school whereas you are free to wear any uniform in college.
  4. In school life, students have to undergo lots of exams taken by tutors like weekly exam, quarterly exam, first terminal, second terminal and many more and students have to attend those exams compulsorily. In college, there is not pressure as much as school to attend internal exam
  5. We have less freedom and have limited pocket-money during school life while there is more freedom and less pocket-money problem in college life.
  6. In school, we have to complete homework daily as well as maintain notes of every subject. In college, the assignments are flexible and need to submit weekly or monthly.
  7. In school, we know names of most student in the classroom but in college life we hardly know names of half students in classroom.

Although there are differences in school and college life, both have given us lots of memories that can not be forgotten. Those memories will always stay in our heart and can wet our eyes whenever we think of our friends. You are the luckiest one if your best friend in school days is still your best friend. If you are still a student, enjoy it, live it, create lots of memories because once your student life is over, it won’t come back.
