Believe it or not, the best years of my life were my IB and IGCSE years. Those six years are so precious to me and I met so many like-minded people. Learning was so much fun and I looked forward to every day of school.
But I’ll let you in on a little secret. I had always struggled with math, chemistry and biology. They were my least favourite subjects and I always dreaded those classes. I didn’t find the topics engaging or fun or something I wanted to learn about. I didn’t care for it, I just wanted to pass. That was it. And I suppose one of my regrets in life is not having done better in those subjects and scored better in Math and Biology for IB. I was less than one point away from getting into the London universities and it absolutely tore me apart for the longest time because it always made me feel not good enough.
On retrospect, I probably should have paid more attention to my weaker subjects instead of focusing more on my favourite classes like Visual Arts and English Literature and being complacent. I guess the message I’m trying to send is this: Have fun, do your best, and don’t give up. Don’t be complacent like me and think you will never excel at math and science. It is definitely possible with a little bit of effort!
The people I knew who scored well for IB all had one-on-one or group tuition. I honestly believe it makes all the difference. In a smaller, more cosy setting, we are less afraid to ask questions and more able to focus on our weak points. It is also easier for a tuition teacher to help coach a student one-on-one. This is where highly recommended tuition centre IB Super comes in.
Founded by Ms Bel Hwang in 2013, IB Super specialises in IB, IGCSE and A Level tuition. With more than 10 years’ experience in teaching and tuition under her belt, Ms Hwang felt ready to start her very own specialised tuition centre. IB Super specialises in the subjects that students often struggle the most with, namely, Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Economics and Business Management.
So how does IB Super differ from other tuition centres in Singapore? IB Super focuses on each individual student’s foundation, i.e. what each student understands and comprehends about the subject. Tutors at IB Super then work on improving the student’s understanding and grasp of the subject through the use of tutorials, quizzes, practical assessments. Regular attendance is also key to improvement, and this is something IB Super encourages.
From the many interesting videos on IB Super’s Instagram page, you get a sense of innovation – out of the box, creative techniques are utilised to make learning fun, easy and memorable. Scrolling through their social media, I really got the feeling that the tutors themselves are constantly improving themselves and finding new ways of teaching. It isn’t rigid, boredom-inducing learning. Instead, IB Super poses questions to students to make them want to expand their knowledge and find out more. An inquisitive mind is drawn out through the use of concept maps, mobile apps and memory aids.
Ms Hwang tells me that students nowadays have so many distractions and I think that is so true. Despite the challenges that come with a more technologically advanced world, IB Super has stood the test of time and has managed to produce great results with its students.
Conveniently located opposite Clarke Quay MRT at 59 New Bridge Road, Singapore 059405, IB Super is a trusted learning centre worth going to seek guidance for students struggling to keep up with IB, A Level, or IGCSE in school.
