Physics is such an important part of our lives. So many technological advances are around today simply because someone had an interest in physics. It is a part of everything that we do, and I have raised my kids so they understand the importance of including it in their education. When my youngest son told me that there was a new physics teacher, I held out hope that he would be as good as the one before him. It was not to be though. I did a search for physics tuition rather than let it bother me because I knew that this was just a small bump in the road.
Not every teacher is going to take the time and concern for his or her students like the former physics teacher. Some are just in it for the money, and they do not put a lot of emphasis on the actual student. Just because this teacher seemed to be that way did not mean that I was going to let my child suffer. I was able to find a physics tutor about three blocks over. I had never had the need for a tutor before, so the search for this one took a bit of time.
I had to consider whether I wanted a private tutor or one who does group settings. I weighed the pros and cons and determined that the cons really were not present for a tutoring center. It was just all positives there, so I enrolled him in that one. It was an easy choice because of the teacher, and my son has been thriving ever since he started taking these lessons. I am not worried about him falling behind at all because he is actually further ahead in his studies at this point than any of his older brothers were at this point of the year.
