Join us for SVBC 2018!

Music has always been taken in the second place to traditional academic classes. Music education should be compulsory in all schools as it provides academic, social and personal benefits. Music can boost students understanding and increase productivity in non-musical subjects like maths, English etc. The children who take music lessons in their school year on average have higher IQs. There is a massive benefit from being musical that we do not understand. The horizons are higher when you are involved in music. With the help of music, one is able to enhance the understanding of the world, art and how one thinks and expresses oneself.

It can sometimes be a motivator and can also help you complete your tasks or demands. Stress can help you stay focused, alert and energetic. Stress can easily creep you up.

·         Say NO
The most common cause of stress is having too much to do and too little time for the things to do. Many people find it hard to say no because they want to help others; they might thing saying no can be rude, they are just trying to be nice. You can start with phrases like I would love to but I am sorry or I am sorry according to our English tutor. You might find it difficult to say no at first but you will be used to it later.

·         Avoid alcohol and nicotine
You should avoid or reduce the consumption of alcohol, caffeine and nicotine. They are stimulants which will increase the level of stress rather than reducing it. You can swap caffeine and alcohol with other drinks like fruit juices, herbal teas or even water.

Success Story

            Dyslexia is a medical condition in which a person finds it difficult to read.  They find it difficult with spelling, writing and reading.  They also have the problem while answering the questions about the things that they have learned. The people suffering from dyslexia are as capable and smart as others. There are many cases where the person suffering from dyslexia has had a successful career.



            Raising a child with dyslexia can be a journey. Andy was one of our students who had Dyslexia. Andy’s’ parents had tried many tuition centres but there was no improvement in his academics. Later Andy’s parents hired a tutor form our tuition agency. Our tutor came to realise that Andy often skipped small words when reading. Later our tutor helped Andy to notice all the details in new words which helped him analyze the word. As children with dyslexia have difficulty while remembering the things they learn, our tutor helped Andy find a trick to help him remember some troublesome words or problems. As our tutor figured out that Andy had some difficulty while remembering some words; Andy was taught with the help of the picture. While learning with pictorial materials Andy was able to read these words quickly and easily.




            If your child is suffering from dyslexia or is having trouble learning then he/she just needs some extra attention and focus. Hiring a private tutor can help improve your child’s overall academic result as the tutor is fully focused on the single child; the tutor is able to teach them in the way that is best suited for them. As tutors and students are able to work more closely they develop a stronger relationship due to which the child won’t hesitate while asking any questions.

Everybody has their different ability to understand. Try to identify what works the best for you; knowing what your strength is will help improve your memory.

Breakfast is the most essential meal. Having a good breakfast can improve your performance throughout the day. People who do not have breakfast can suffer from insufficient supply of nutrients to the brain causing brain degeneration.

Tips on becoming a good student

Schools and colleges can be a competitive environment for some students. What you learn in your school and collages is a guide for the rest of your life. The grades that you get in your schools define your future whether it is when applying to graduate school or while landing your first job. It is not easy for some students to perform well. Some of the students have always wondered why you just can’t seem to reach your full academic potential. Below is some step listed by our tutors at home tuition agency, which helps you to be on your path to becoming a better student.


·         Sleep
Never underestimate the importance of sleep. Losing one day of sleep can impact your brain function for four days. Getting a good night’s sleep can help boost your memory and improve our focus.

·         Note-taking
Taking notes during your class not only helps you remember what is being taught. Note taking also helps you during your exam time. You can go through your notes to recall the outline of the topic.

·         Attendance
You should develop the habit of going to school or college to become a good student. Attendance is important as the course material is presented during the class and you will get a brief outline of the learning materials during class which helps you to perform well on exams.

·         Make a regular study time
To be a good student you do not have to study all the time. Reviewing the notes of the class daily for 1-2 hours daily is good enough. This also helps you stick to a timetable and structure your day.



·         Feedback

Asking for feedback is always good. Do not be afraid to ask for feedback to your teacher or tutors as it allows you to know your strength and weakness. After analyzing your weakness and mistakes you can work on its improvement.
