Whenever we think we need help in our studies, we attend tuition lessons. We expect our Introduction tutor to teach us things which we do not quite learn from our teachers at school. We receive personal attention. We rely on our tutors to help us pass or do well in our examinations. In extreme cases, we believe lock, stock and barrel what our tuition teachers tell us, more than what our school teachers tell us, to do really well in examinations. I do not believe that tuition is the key to our success in examinations. However, I think other students must have Comment [u1]: their own reasons why they attend tuition lessons.

Every student wants to be successful in their studies. I want the same too.

If he does not need it, than he does not need to have anything to do with it.Written for 3NA students at HSCS.2012 by Yeo Yam Hwee Term 2 Week 3-4.2012 Page 1
