Is Science a blessing or a curse?

Science has completely changed the world at a very fast speed. From stone age till now, today we are in digital age and all this credit goes to science. Science has made the world small. Today, we can talk to people living in next part of the world using the telephone and smartphone. Not only this, we can make a video call, video conference using the internet. We can travel to different parts of the world in hours. Not only this, human beings have stepped on the moon and have sent robots to Mars for research purpose. Slowly we are planning to go to other planets of our solar system and all this will be possible because of science. Today we are able to treat deadly disease like cancer and AIDS because of the inventions made in the medical field.

Though we are benefited by science, there are many examples where science has turned into a curse. Sir Alfred Nobel has discovered dynamite to clear mountains so that it could be turned into productive land. But today same dynamite is used in wars to kill innocent people and causing mass destruction. Guns, bomb, missile, grenade, nuclear weapon, tanks, fighter plane were made for self-defence and to provide security and protect the country. But, today, these weapons are used to kill thousands of people in the name of war. These weapons killed millions of people in the first and second World war.

According to our Science Tutors from our tuition agency, misuse of internet and technology has become another problem. These days people are wasting hours in social networking site. Likewise, cybercrime is growing rapidly by the means of internet and technology. Most people are getting depressed because of the excess internet addiction. The same internet and technology are used to hack bank’s account and other security platforms. Science has turned people evil, cruel and selfish. They are killing each other for territory, fuel, and power. Thousands of people are murdered and killed every year.

Science has both good and bad sides. It’s all about how smart we can use it. If we use it in a smart way for the betterment of this planet, then it will be a boon. If we use it, in a wrong selfish way to cause destruction, then it will be a curse.

Differences between good and bad tutor

There are many differences between a good and a bad tutor. A good Singapore tutor inspires his/her student into being a better version whereas a bad tutor doesn’t care about all round development of his/her student. There is a saying that bad tutor can even be worse than having no tutors. Here we are going to point out some main differences between bad and good tutor.
Communication Pattern:
A good tutor keeps communication open with students. Students feel free to ask questions with them and tutor encourages students to ask as many questions about the topic as possible
But with bad tutor students hesitate to open up. A bad tutor doesn't care if the students have understood the lessons or not.

Making lessons interesting:
A good tutor tries different teaching styles and innovative approaches to make the lesson interesting. Students are curious to know details about the lessons. But this is not in the case with a bad tutor. A bad tutor just tries to finish the lesson as soon as possible and doesn’t focus on giving wide knowledge about the lesson.
A good tutor replies to student’s questions and queries on time. Sometimes the tutor can be too busy with his personal and work life and can not reply to his/her students' email, call or text but as soon as possible they get back to them. But with a bad tutor, this is not the case. They try to avoid student's queries and questions as much as possible making many excuses.

The most important goal of a good tutor is making his/her students better than they were before along with good grades and making them stronger to withstand all the challenges that life brings. But this is not the goal of a bad tutor. A bad tutor works for money and has a goal of finishing the lesson.

A good tutor has a sweet, helpful, cheerful, supportive and friendly behavior. A good tutor has equal standards and expectation from his/her pupil regardless of their test scores. A bad tutor is judgemental to pupil, parents, and siblings. A bad tutor can be physically intimidating and verbally abusive.
