Math and Physics are courses we specialize in!
Socrates Tutoring believes that with proper guidance everybody can learn and understand Math and Physics. Math and Physics are sciences explaining the natural world around us in a very simple language, using few math symbols (mathematical syntax) and logic. As the world around us is complex, mathematical models can become complex too.
Add Physics to the picture and it becomes more complex, so that very few students will even try it, thinking: ‘This is not for me; I have no natural inclination for stuff like that.’ Wrong! We all have it. What is missing is the right plan, the right teacher, the right curriculum, the right institution, and something or someone, able to academically explain basic and complex concepts of math. Even more importantly is the necessity of someone to explain the links between those different concepts.
We all, more or less, have the right sense for what is natural. We were simply born with it. Like the sense for what is smaller and what is bigger, as a minimalistic example. However, with more complex ideas, just knowing which number is smaller and which one is bigger, is not going to help. Our natural abilities for math need proper academic explanation, in written form, to nurture and grow our understanding. Otherwise just comparing fractions becomes an obstacle. Not to mention moving on to Pre-Calculus and beyond.
Instead of finding a way to academically explain events we all experience every minute of our life, such as gravity, the shortest path to cross busy street, and electricity to name a few, the school chooses to suggest to students a course with lower expectations and lower the bar of success. Even worse, school chooses to place the student in the next level and ignores the failing grade from the previous level. This is the most common practice in North America and has led to achieving math successfully an individual problem. The student in question and his/her family are left adrift, while the school statistics shows that every student succeeds.
Add Physics to this and thus the current situation as it is! As long as you have Wi-Fi, you can get tutored in this 2 subjects in the next 48h, wherever you are! We can help you get better.
Don’t wait until it is too late. It is not going to get any easier! Especially if it is just quick 6-8 weeks course. We at Socrates Tutoring say that those 6-8 week courses are going ‘Ludicrous Speed’. ‘Ludicrous Speed’ term comes from Spaceballs.
If you plan on following any course at ‘Ludicrous Speed’, you need to start preparing your mind for it beforehand. If you really want to learn it! If not, you might pass, depending on how low your educational institution placed the bar and what will be the statistics about the group of students taking this course along with you.
