I have heard a lot of adults tell young people to enjoy their youth and to quit trying to grow up too quickly. I imagine these people also have no kids of their own. In today’s times, it is nearly impossible for a child to not feel pressure in some or even a lot of areas of his life. My son is very smart and he is also athletic, so he is being pulled in two different directions. Sometimes he needs help with the academics because of this. I looked into physics tuition when I thought that he was going to having trouble.
Because of all the pressures that he is under, I do monitor his various activities. I know that he adores sports, but I also know that it is his academic ability that is going to take him places. He needs to have high scores in order to get into the college of his choice, and physics plays a large role in that because it is connected to so many different fields. With how much my son loves computers, I knew that he would need to get high scores in physics, and he was up until not long ago. Even though the score dropped, it was not even a full grade level.
This was enough concern though that I wanted to get him some help. I found a tutor that has classes on different days, which was really helpful since my son is so busy. He had no problem with going to these classes because he knows high scores are so important. He also told me later that he was learning a new way to study in the group tutoring sessions. It must work wonders, because his grade is at the top once again. He is still taking his physics classes though because he is enjoying them so much!
