Being a content heavy subject, Biology requires students to possess a good understanding of concepts and have a ready-to-learn attitude. Here at Making sense, we provide step-by-step analysis of concepts. With a low tutor to student ratio, students will be able to engage in discussions with our tutors which will allow them to clarify their doubts. 

 

COMMON CHALLENGES FACED BY STUDENTS

INADEQUATE UNDERSTANDING

Biology is a content heavy subject which can be difficult for students to fully understand all of the syllabus content. Providing step-by-step analysis will make the learning process easier. Our team of tutors are also ready to answer any questions that students might have. 

INSUFFICIENT PRACTICE AND EXPOSURE TO QUESTIONS

Most biology student will spend most of their time memorising syllabus content instead of attempting questions. Making sense has ample resources to provide support for your child. These frequent exposure to questions is followed by detailed explanations by our team of tutors which will train students to interlink topics to one another and be able to apply these concepts to real world issues. This will ultimately prepare your child for major examinations.

LACK OF HIGH-QUALITY RESOURCES IN THE MARKET

With many content to understand, students may start to search for materials online. Most guidebooks and commercially available resources are geared towards the standard questions and hindering students’ progress. Making sense offers top quality materials that have been reviewed frequently to ensure that it meets the demands of the Biology syllabus.

A critical thinking framework put together by top experienced Biology tutors

APPLICATION BASED TEACHING TO STRENGTHEN CONCEPTS

By focusing on the application of concepts, we train our students to be critical thinkers. This will help our students develop examination skills to apply their knowledge during examinations. Additionally, by applying in application based teaching, this will allow students to engage in discussion with our tutors, giving them insights on what to look out for when answering questions. 

TOP QUALITY CHEMISTRY RESOURCES

With a team of experienced tutors, we invest a huge amount of time reviewing and enhancing our materials. Questions selected are handpicked from various schools all around Singapore, exposing our students to different question types with varying levels of difficulty. These materials are consolidated for our students in the form of worked examples and summaries.

EXPOSURE TO HIGHER-ORDER THINKING BIOLOGY QUESTIONS

The exposure of higher order thinking questions allow our tutors and students to engage in discussions. This will help make understanding concepts easier and also help students answer questions during examinations with ease. 

KEY FOCUS ON EXAM SKILLS AND ANSWERING TECHNIQUE

In every chapter, there is always a fixed set of standard questions that is commonly tested. Although a student may be extremely hardworking, if key words are not present in his answer, the possibility of scoring distinction is lowered significantly. At Making Sense, our tutors coach our students to adopt a step-by-step analysis of different question types, helping them to develop a proper thought process before answering. This will also allow students to identify keywords and common mistakes made during examination. With 80% of curriculum time spent on higher order thinking questions, students are trained to apply concepts in unfamiliar contexts. This will also stretch their thinking as they are more flexible in application and reinforces their understanding of concepts.

Testimonials

Joining Making Sense is easily one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. I was blown away in that one lesson by the ease in which the teacher helped us to realise concepts, link topics together and remember things.

Felix Tseng

Dunman High School

Making Sense is arguably the best (and most value for money) chemistry tuition in Singapore! The notes given to us were extremely concise and help us prepare well for exams. Not only that, the tutors are extremely competent and passionate about what they teach, making lessons a lot more enjoyable and engaging. My chemistry grades have improved significantly after joining Making Sense and I am really thankful.”

Sammi Lim

Raffles Institution

I am so glad I was introduced to this tuition because I do not know how I would have passed Chemistry otherwise. I was never a strong Chemistry student right from O levels’ when I just scraped a B3. But thanks to all your effort with the ‘push-list’ and all the tutorial compilations, I am finally improving in school. What makes you such a great teacher is your unparalleled patience in explaining concepts and mechanisms, that really breaks down the learning process and Chemistry does not seem that hard anymore.”
