Every college claims that they do not allow tuition, how do we believe your claim of having no tuition environment?
The definition of a good college is that it should create an environment where students can feel comfortable with all the subject teachers for their CIE preparation but it doesn`t happen anywhere as different reasons are cited for tuition need.The rush of students at tuition centers depict the dilemma being faced by parents and students. Since the parents can`t afford a bad grade in any subject, hence they have no options and send them to the best teachers at tuition. Reasons can be frequent switching of teachers, less emphasis on past papers, more interest of teachers at tuition rather than at colleges, less salary at college, inept curriculum planning of final year students of O levels by not revising of syllabi from scratch, lack of resolution of personal queries because of part time teachers culture at majority of teachers at A levels colleges, more emphasis on syllabi completion rather than proper examination preparation and so on so forth.
We at WHALES COLLEGE not only prohibit it but actually create such an environment where students own need of tuitions hardly arise. It looks very simple, but it is not. We have done a comprehensive research before launching this system and tried to know the reasons for compelling the students towards and we address most of the issues simultaneously. These resources include: extra help and support from the respective teachers and learning support from formal tutorial sessions accessible throughout the week. Since we have started this system on this very premis, our result has borne the testimony that the mere planning with self-sufficient mindset can work wonders in this regard by keeping the teachers on board and students being the beneficiary.
