the bane of most students & a major expenditure of most households.
because scoring straight As is the lifelong target from kindergarten to varsity.
OK la, i am just exaggerating.
but not by very much.
case in point : me.
i had taken BM tuition up to form 3 but not at form 5. which explains why i got a strong credit in form 3 but only a pass at SPM level. (yes, you've guessed correctly that i wasn't a straight As student.)
so, tuition is actually quite useful, if taken in the right attitude.
now that the boy is in form 1, we are thinking of trying to take the right attitude for his tuition. we came to the conclusion that he will only take BM tuition for now & he will be home tutored for the other subjects. i took it upon myself to teach him maths & science. however, today, he asked me a geography question.
so, what better way to study ...no, master geography than to take out the secret weapon.....
a map of the world....with latitudes, longitudes, international date line & the Marianna trench. that should keep him from mischief for a while!!
