I have enjoyed the learning curve that our daughter has been on at school. I was worried that she might become disillusioned about learning when she reached her teen years and peer pressure would be at its peak. She has had a focus on becoming a scientist since she was a little girl. She has explored medicine, astronautics, engineering and more. She has the mathematical abilities to pursue any of the sciences. She is a whiz at chemistry. She even realized she needed a little help in physics, so we looked for Singapore physics tutors that could really motivate young students to learn. We needed someone with a program that was dynamic and energizing to be able to help her young mind focus and be determined to excel at physics.
She had a rough spot with learning some of the concepts of physics, and that affected her testing. However, she got up to speed very quickly and got her grades up dramatically before finals were being done at her school. I think it is sad that children are actually working on a college resume throughout their grade school and high school education periods. However, the standardized tests used to evaluate students for university acceptance can help even out any individual report card that a student received in the past.
Companies are looking for the best of the best for the highest paying jobs that are out there. I would not even call them careers now as it seems that many people are only working about two years at each place before moving on. I do hope that our daughter is able to get a position she really enjoys and can stick with for a lifetime career, but that does not seem to be the culture now. Whatever she does, we just want her to be happy and excel at it.
