01/ How does SMART TuTor works?
SMART TuTor Learning Mine is not just a tutorial service provider. Our study framework emphasizes on working with our students to map out their goals by completing a series of self evaluation quesions. Next, by understanding that each student is different by nature, we have designed several tutoring programs that suit their needs. Our tutors will start coaching, guiding and encouraging students to think critically by applying real life examples. We also believe that there is no one right answer, therefore students are encouraged to think creatively. We have also prepared a series of practice examination papers and worked examples to train the student in answering them. Lastly, we will impart the right examination strategies to help student in scoring for good results in their examinations. In summary, we trained our students to be independent thinkers with great determination to complete tasks given to them, preparing them to face the challenges of tomorrow.
