Pedagogy

Focus:

  • Studying techniques SPECIFIC to Biology and Chemistry
  • Writing skills (planning of essay and developing critical and concise communication skills)
  • Data response skills (dealing with statistics, experimental data and graphical representation skills, essential for SPA; skills can be applied in other subjects such as Geography and Physics as well)
  • Quantitative skills (dealing with numerical data, calculations and SI units)
  • Real-life applications (beyond that of conventional teaching, experiences and applications of the topic covered will be brought into the context of real life applications, ranging from technological applications to ethical considerations. This skill can be useful for contextual application in examinations, application in General Paper, sparking interest for the subject as well as to create awareness in a global context

Methodology:

  • First lesson will be spent on understanding
    1. Student's capability and understanding of the subject so as to cater the most specific pedagogy toward the student
    2. Understanding the syllabus of the student (sequence of topics covered etc.)
    3. Discussing a studying plan with the student
    4. Understanding the student better to understand the commitment and interest towards the subject
  • Lesson plan
  • Begin with a review from previous lesson
  • Quick assessment through quizzes¬†
  • At least one lesson per month will be spent on covering techniques and skills (e.g. data response or SPA skills)
  • Review with parents at least once at the end of each month to update the progress as well as for the student/parent to feedback on my teaching/guidance
  • Tuition layout
    • Flexible! Student/Parent can decide how they wish the tuition to be conducted. Some students/Parents prefer:
      • Q&A session on with regards to content and questions (for more inquisitive students)
      • Head-start (for students who prefer to get a glimpse of the new topic before it is covered in school)
      • Re-teach of topics (for students who wish to reinforce on topics previously covered in school)
      • Mixture of different tuition layout
    • Student/Parent may request for a switch in the type of lesson plan as deemed fit of the student's capability¬†
