Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect when I sign up for the course?

ScienceShifu offers pre-recorded courses for your child. That means your child gets to master science concepts anytime!

This is one-to-one coaching over the pre-recorded lesson video. There is no background noise from other students.

One batch of lessons is released every month.

Each batch consists of 4 lessons (some months have more lessons).

Each lesson contains videos that are 20 to 40 mins long.

MCQs and worksheets are provided at the end of the lesson.

(Some lessons have interesting science facts to boost your child’s appreciation of scientific concepts.)

Submit the completed worksheets to us for marking.

Our team of science experts will provide detailed answers plus feedback for your child.

 

What will my child learn from each lesson?

 

Some tuition centres tell your child to follow a single method to answer all questions.

At ScienceShifu, we believe this is not effective learning.

In reality, there are different types of questions testing different science concepts.

Your child needs to be equipped with the MUST-KNOW skills to answer ALL questions.

The online science courses at Scienceshifu place heavy emphasis on understanding the questions and applying the correct answering techniques.

Scienceshifu trains your child on the different scientific thinking processes so your child can grasp ALL the requirements in the questions and apply the correct answering techniques.

That way, your child is equipped with all the MUST-KNOW tools to tackle all sorts of exam questions.

 

In each lesson, your child will learn:

– how scientific concepts are tested in the exams.

– Techniques to grasp the requirement of the question.

– the scientific thinking process your child has to know so it can be applied to all science questions (MCQs and Open-ended).

– how to apply the correct answering techniques so your child won’t miss out on the key phrases needed in his or her answers.

– Common mistakes past students have made so your child won’t repeat them.

– Targeted practice worksheets or MCQs to train your child’s scientific thinking process.

 

Can the online lessons allow my child to access specific lessons on a topic?

 

Yes! That is the purpose of online learning!

Each topic has multiple lessons.

Your child can go straight to that lesson within that topic to master specific concepts or simply practise the questions straight away!

Your child can view the lessons in whichever order (it is not recommended to do so when your child is viewing them for the first time).

Note: Your child can access lessons in any order once the batch of lessons is released in that month.

 

My child wants to seek homework help. What are the contact details?

 

Contact details are sent to your email address (parents’ email address) when you sign your child up for the course.

Alternatively, the contact details are found on the Online Course Main Page after you have subscribed to the course.

Keep a lookout from AndyLing@scienceshifu.com for new lesson updates and materials.

To ensure you don’t miss any lesson updates, please ensure your email at your Scienceshifu account is the same as your email address

(We recommend the parents’ email when signing up for the courses).

Some students send in the completed assignments using their own email.

To monitor your child’s homework submissions, you can guide your child to CC (carbon copy) you in every email.

 

Will the lessons be “kept” there and my child can always revisit them and watch the videos over and over again?

 

Yes! Lesson videos will be there so long as you remain subscribed to the course.

Your child can watch them again (no limit).

Note: Once you cancel your subscription, you will lose access to all the lesson videos and materials after the expiry date.

All lessons will reset after the End-of-Year science exams.

 

 

Why do I need to put my credit card number when the 7-days trial is free?

 

This is to ensure your child has seamless access to the online videos and materials when the 7-days free trial ends.

The first payment will be made after your 7 days free trial.
