- An Easy-Going Star -
One of our Founder, Teck Sion's, Physics tuition, Afnan is a cheerful and happy-go-lucky 18 year old from Maktab Duli. He struggled with his A Level Physics, so he decided to take tuition for the first time in his life. He chose Edu Champ Academic as his school and he never looked back! Here are his thoughts on tuition :
ECA : Why did you start taking tuition?
AFNAN : I have bad grades, so…when I struggled my AS, I decided to take tuition here. At first, I didn’t want to. I wanted more free time. (Laughs) So, I had to sacrifice my time. 2 PS is more than enough. And, like, it’s only for 2 hours and 30 minutes, so… like, okay, why not.
ECA : So Teck Sion was the right guy for the job?
AFNAN : Yeah. He’s the right guy. He’s the perfect guy. (Laughs) Uh.. He’s funny. He’s fun. And he knows how to teach. I don’t know. (Laughs) He’s smart! He’s really smart! I was shocked when he first calculated stuff in his mind. Without using a calculator. And I’m still very slow. He just makes things more like, more than memorising, it’s more like understanding. Yeah. He’s like a buddy!
ECA : Did you feel like there was a marked improvement in your grades?
AFNAN : Not a VERY big improvement. But I think they would’ve been worse without tuition. I understand more now. Yeah. He made me understand and made it simpler for me. I enjoyed Physics in tuition more than my school. Tuition really helped my grade. Cause, like, if at home, I don’t study. (Laughs) But yeah. It’s worth the money.
ECA : Can you tell me a little bit about what you want to do after you graduate?
AFNAN : At first, I wanted to be a pilot. So I didn’t need to proceed to university. So yeah, I was thinking about becoming a pilot, because of the money. (Laughs) Other than the money, RBA maybe like has discounts for travelling. I want to travel because I want to go shopping. (Laughs) But then I changed my mind and wanted to take uni. I was thinking to do something to do with Engineering. I was thinking Geo. Cause like, I hate calculating. (Laughs)
ECA : Is there anything you learned outside of tuition?
AFNAN : Yeah. He teached me a lot about what to take in UBD and UTB. He gave many life advices. Actually, he was the one that recommended that I take Geography. (Laughs) I don’t like Physics! I struggle with Physics and Maths. He said, just take what you like. So yeah. I’m going to drop Science. I just want to drop Science from my life. Just get through it and then take Geo.
Wow! Such strong feelings about science. But sometimes, we can't help the paths we have to take in life. We hope that you find better luck in university and that Geography treats you better than Physics. All the best, Afnan!
