From a young age our daughter has had a strong interest in the sciences. She has been leaning toward becoming a physicist since she was about 14. We wanted her to have an extraordinary academic resume to get into the university of her choice, so we sought JC physics tuition early. There is a difference between getting into the college of choice rather than settling for your secondary, tertiary or even quaternary options for advanced education. Universities have greatly increased their standards of acceptance. Well, at least the universities one may wish to attend to earn an advanced degree.
Schools now expect a well-rounded academic resume with strong grades and test results as well as a strong social and community section of the resume. I really do not see how a kid can get it all done. I think it is tougher being a high school student trying to get into a good college than it is working for a corporation seeking a management position. School has always been tough, but now it can border on the ridiculous as to what is expected from our children. Tutors are a fact of life nowadays. No one is strong in every subject. There is always that one field of study where you need the boost that a great tutor can provide to bring you up to speed.
When we were looking at JC physics tuition for our daughter, we wanted to find someone who was dynamic and full of energy to keep the subject interesting to pursue through the rough spots. We are so happy to have found her an ideal teacher to help boost her in the weak areas of her study. I wish I would have had someone like this when I was a kid just entering college. It would have been a great help to me.
