Do stop the bad habit of scrolling without reading. Read to understand.It is time for a change in perspective and thinking.
Are you sure it is expensive? It is cheaper than some kindergarten fees and definitely cheaper than tertiary education where the costs range from thousands to hundred thousands of Ringgit, not to mention more than half a million. Moreover, primary and secondary school education are stepping stones to tertiary education. Excellent SPM results open doors to many golden opportunities for one’s future endeavor.
Are you sure it is ridiculous? Try sitting down and finishing a long chapter within 1.5 hours. That’s the standard tuition time per subject. Not by just merely watching the videos by fast-forwarding the videos one-by-one while munching on a pack of chips or let the videos run while you are doing something else. Do you think you are in front of a computer watching some downloaded movies? Are you even writing down and tackling the questions or just copying without thinking? Are you sure you can absorb the whole chapter within a day? If it is really a short chapter, I will believe you and if you are already a smart student who gets 100% without even listening to your teachers in class, what are you doing here?
To parents who think this is ridiculous, do you know that some chapters take more than a month to teach in school and even in tuition classes? Just because this platform gives your child 30 days to study a particular chapter daily, does not mean you can abuse it and think that it is a waste of money as it can be done within a few hours or two days in a row. Does your child attend physical tuition classes of the same subject for two days in a row or at whatever time your child wants, including at midnight while wearing pajamas?
I am. Every single question is in video form. Definitely I am talking there, not doing puppet-show or just scribbling words after words. I am talking, teaching, loud and clear. Have you even purchased one of the courses before jumping into conclusion that this platform only has endless words with no one teaching there?
Do you think you can do that in a physical class? Ask a teacher to repeat a method non-stop? Either the teacher will ignore you or scold you for not paying attention. The timetable for a period of lesson in school is between 30 to 40 minutes only while for a tuition class it is just 1.5 hours, 2 hours, at most 3 hours depending on how much you are paying for the class, usually once a week, not at whatever time that you are comfortable with. Some even have Additional Mathematics combined together with Modern Mathematics for a total of 1.5 hours. If that’s the case, if ONE student asks the same question repeatedly every week during lesson, do you think the lesson can move forward? Do you think the teacher will have the time to teach slowly, tackling through question by question?
Every child learns at different pace. Over here in this platform, if the child is slow in understanding and picking up, then rest assure no one is rushing the child. Replay the videos as many times as possible until one can understand. No one is going to laugh or mock at the child for doing so.
Is this even a relevant question? Which teacher will sit with a student who is in form 5 still struggling to master the basics in form 1 without charging a high fee, not to mention sacrificing time and energy? Even a parent might not be able to cope with pumping in 5 year’s worth of education within 10 months into a teenager if the child suddenly decides to want to do well in SPM.
Are you pampering your child so much that your child cannot even find time to build a secure future for self? How come your child can be so engrossed in playing computer games or dancing to TikTok by the roadside to be seen by the whole world, but has no time to sit down and study using the same phone which your child dance into oblivion with TikTok? The endless chats with friends and the need to take a selfie every few hours or have a photo session with boba drinks of various flavor, why is there no time to self-study with all the comfort in life? This is not a war-torn country without Internet access. If there’s a will, there’s a way. Discipline has to be formed since young, not during old age.
I am baffled with such question. How to study then?
If you need to print out the notes, I suggest that you stick to the colorful textbooks that the ministry of education has prepared for every student. Is it so hard to take up a pen or pencil and start writing? There is no such thing as going green and saving trees, using fewer papers. With technology, the papers being used are far more than during my grandparents’ era. Look at the amount of paperwork school teachers need to do; more like a clerical job instead of being educators.
Well, where does this come from? Is it mention anywhere that one needs to buy a chapter every month? It is seriously time to change perspective and view tuition in a very different angle. Please, do put on a different thinking cap. If your child has mastered a chapter while the school has not reached that particular chapter, then do not buy the next one yet unless your child wants to stay ahead of everyone in school. Go get busy with other subjects. If it is during the exam month, I do not see the need to buy. Be flexible. If I can be flexible, why can’t you be flexible? What is so difficult in accepting something new? If there’s a new norm, then tuition can be carried out in a new norm as well.
In physical tuition classes, during exam month, most parents pay the fees while the children are at home doing last minute revision, children do not even attend for one lesson during that particular month yet parents need to pay the fees. But no parents complain about this issue as parents support the idea of skipping lessons during exam week or month. Therefore, as this is something new, bear in mind, no one needs to pay any monthly fee. Just get whichever chapter you need for that particular subject at your own time, if the next chapter is really easy for your child, therefore do not buy it. Get to the one that is difficult or necessary.
Then you will have to ask me because from my side here, I can see it even to the dot the duration your child spends on each question. If your child fast forwarded the video just to end it faster, I will know as well. Who in the right frame of mind can finish a question within 5 seconds? It is not even possible to finish copying a word within 5 seconds. I know the duration of each question as I am the one preparing it. If your child is not doing well, the first thing I will ask is to show me your child’s nicely copied notes; I will look through it especially the solutions that I have shown.
If your child can WhatsApp friends and chat endless nonsense for example which k-pop idols they love and watch YouTube channels which do not even help in their studies, I think they are big enough to use that same phone they are holding to chat with me. I impart knowledge, not indulge in empty chatters. How do I know what the children are chatting about? We have been teachers for more than a decade almost two, while my husband has been teaching for 38 years, looking through their group chats, you will be amazed at how different they are when they are chatting than when they are at home. In one day, a minimum of 400 chats will just bounce out in less than an hour or two.
Let me give you a scenario. If I’m an asymptomatic person, carrying the virus without my knowledge and my family is also asymptomatic people, and then transmits the virus to your child unknowingly, will you just give a wave of your hand, smile sweetly and tell me that, “Such thing is bound to happen. It is just a small issue.”
Let’s turn the table around, what if your child is asymptomatic and ends up my whole family is sacrificed away because of your child, are you going to be as heartless and say that, “Oh, it must have happened because the teacher does not follow the standard operating procedure (SOP) and conduct classes with carelessness until the whole family perish due to the virus. Serve them right for conducting classes in the first place.”
This is not thinking too much or thinking too far. This is taking precaution to avoid any untoward incident. If one gets the virus from a public area such as shopping malls or school field, no one can blame anyone for such incident as nobody has a point of reference to put a finger upon. But if one gets the virus from someone known which causes the loss of life, all kinds of relationship and friendship including kinship will be broken beyond repair. Isn’t that true?
