  1. If tuition is enjoyable, can’t it become an event to look forward to? Knowledge acquisition can be an exciting and engaging process!

  2. I think it depends on the student’s purpose for learning .. if students learn with the goal of getting good grades alone, then it is likely that they will not retain or put to good use what they have learnt.. but if they are able to see value in the knowledge that are about to gain and that learning, in itself, can be fun , then it is less likely that all those learning from school / tuition classes will be gone to waste…

      Why is it that most seem to just be learning to get the grade? Instead of really plugged into the larger purpose of learning and also having fun and joy in the process.

      Fortunately, most of my students (seem to) enjoy my classes. And I frequently remind them that the greater value is the honing of their thinking skills and not the economics.

    2. I agree. and it’s about strengthening a multi displinary outlook of the world. Tuition provides the space and expertise for a deeper engagement of affairs that arguably a teacher in class cannot afford, due to time constraints.
