Re: Home Tution Vs Enrichment Vs Group Tution

Re: Which subject combination?

Agree, discuss with your child. But, with your input example, if no physics, can't do some engineering degree. My girl wanted to do Combined Science, our question was, "what do you want to do?"..as doing Combined Science will restrict the university options. Hi plc, how exactly does doing combined ...

Home tuition vs Tuition centre

Home tuition vs tuition centre, what do you think? I have a student whose parent pulled her out from the tuition centre, because she just wasn't making any progress. Does this happen to anyone out there?

Individual or Group tuition?

Hi Individual or Group tuition - which is better? In my opinion, the main advantage of individual tuition is that the student gets undivided attention.
