Education: Why Learn and Become Successful?

People would always question themselves, why do we need to study? What is the ultimate purpose of education?

If you’re at school, then going straight back to the books might be the last thing on your mind. And if you’re working, your commitments aren’t going to go away just because you decide to study. That’s the reality, but the benefits of greater satisfaction and better pay mean that it’s all worth it.

Education began long before there were schools, universities and colleges. Way back in ancient times, people taught their children what they needed to know for survival. The earliest schools recorded in history were in Mesopotamia and Egypt about 2000 to 1000 B.C. Early philosophers such as Aristotle and Plato pointed out that education was central to the moral fulfillment of individuals and the well-being of the society in which they live. The importance of education is undeniable for every single person. It goes without saying that education has positive effects in every human being.

Once you start in further education you can specialize in whatever you want – it is as much about learning how to study as it is about what you’re learning. If you can research, analyze, problem-solve and communicate well, you can translate those skills to whatever you end up doing. It would give you source of livelihood and it would take you to different places and opportunities.

Education

Also, education would enable us to improve our communication skills. Even if you don’t need to make regular presentations in a meeting or conference, there are many life situations that good public speaking skills can help you create different opportunities. There are many excellent public speakers such as Mr. Benjamin Loh that could help you achieve improvement. Check his linkedin account for queries: Public speaking coach Benjamin Loh. Here’s a video that could give you some public speaking tips.

No matter how you define success – whether it’s in dollar signs, knowing your job is secure, feeling satisfied in your work or challenging yourself to reach new levels of knowledge – further study, at any stage of your life, will open up opportunities.

For younger students, studying can be an important time of transition when you get to learn new things and also meet new people, many of whom will share your interests or expose you to different ways of thinking. And with a world-class education system and government support to help with the costs, why not take advantage of it?

Education

Advantages of having an education are so many. But imagine if you didn’t receive any educational attainment, you wouldn’t have been able to gain the knowledge or the awareness that you have now. You would not be able to maintain a certain position of which you have today in the society. How we study and how we utilize education would depend on each individual and vary from person to person. Maturity comes also through education. It makes us able to understand other’s views in a better way. And finally, it helps us in living a better life by making us able to earn a respectable life.

The best way to equip your education centre with proper furniture

At Creative Education Hub, we always like to share information that helps people to be creative, and also tips for prospective teachers who want to start their own educational hub. This is great news because if education centres focus more on creative teaching and learning, more people can benefit from it!

We have talked about math tuition centres providing the best education for students to ace in their learning and studies. That’s on the teaching part of things. Now, let’s talk about the hardware, which is equally important to aid in learning for the students.

When we mention hardware, it will be the physical issues itself. And yes, proper furniture for teachers and students are important. Teachers would need proper office chairs and tables to conduct the lessons, not to mention a good whiteboard for writing, and one that is big enough for mind maps.

For students, a good chair will aid in sitting posture, which will help the student to be healthy too. You don’t want your students to score A in maths, but left with an ailing backache.

When setting up the furnitures for offices, education hub owners prefer to go for a system furniture setup by a professional company to do everything for them. They can ask for office furniture quotes from a few suppliers, designs, layouts, and so forth, before deciding on one. Afterall, this can be a huge investment in the setup of the learning centre.

What’s next when you receive the quotations? 

When you receive the quotations from different furniture setup companies, the next step is to evaluate all of them. However, what most people do when they compare quotes, is to look at the price only. There are also  many things to look at, which include the overall layout, the furniture design, and the look and feel how the furniture will match to the theme of your learning centre.

That said, you want to focus on giving your teachers and students a comfortable environment where the teachers can teach with ease and comfort, while the students can pay attention and learn with happiness. Environment is one factor that will spur creative teaching and thinking, but also one that many people neglect about.

What’s next? 

Your next task would be to plan how your learning centre will look like, with all the furniture , the chairs, the tables, the board, the carpet…etc. Then ask for quotations from the companies. Evaluate them closely with your team, and select the best quote and company to setup the centre for you.

Struggling for classroom and office furniture setup? Here are some ideas for you!

Looking to Invest Your Money? Then you got to be creative!

Investing is something like a buzz word nowadays. Suddenly, more people see the importance of investing their money instead of leaving them in the bank. And they just realized how important it is to grow their money with better returns, instead of putting them in instruments that are lower than inflation rate.

However, not are investment are the same. You got to be creative here.

invest in property

Many people just follow blindly, or just do what others do. As a result, they just get average returns, just like the average joe out there.

Since we are talking about creativity here, let’s use an example of a property investment.

When we talk about property investment, the usual way will be investing in a property with vibrant property market like Singapore or Hong Kong. These countries have little land, hence land are expensive, and you can expect higher return from rental yield.

The normal person would just look for properties which are near the central of the city where it will be popular and in high demand. Convenience will help to push the popularity of the property up, and hence, you can fetch more from your tenants.

What about the creative way? Now, many people didn’t thought of that.

Instead of going for the high end central properties, you can think out of the box and get a property which is not far from the central. For example, the city of Singapore will then be Orchard Road, Raffles Place, Bugis, Dhoby Ghaut. These places are very popular, and have one of the highest rents. Of course, the properties there are not cheap too!

Now, if you are creative enough, you can source for locations which are outside of the central, but not too far away from it. Meaning, you can reach the central within 20-30 minutes of public transport. For example, you can invest in North Park Residences, which is a condo project in Yishun.

When you look at Yishun, yes, it is outside the central of Singapore, but what you do not know is the convenience of the residential estate, plus its close proximity to the central of Singapore. You can reach Orchard road in under 20 minutes!

Will the rents over at Yishun be lower? Yes, definitely. However, the property units over at North Park condo will definitely be cheaper than the ones in Orchard Road! This is where you can see higher margins from your rentals. If you need more details of North Park residence, find out more about the location and vicinity of Yishun and the residence here.

Yes, so this is just one creative way to be different from others.

Warren Buffett says when everyone is fearful, be greedy. When everyone is greedy, be fearful!

This is why you have to be creative here if you want to invest your money. Invest it right, and it will reap multiple returns back for you.

A Creative Way To Build A Team Fast

Whenever we talk about building a team, there are always many options available. People suggest going out for some drinks after work, some bonding sessions over short trips, or even simple board games at the boss house to get to know one another.

These are really just some methods used by many teams out there. However, if we want to break down into a detailed analysis of how teams come together and how strong teams are really built, then you will realise that strong teams are not build just by going for meals together.

There is a creative, and in fact, a better way to build a team fast. This method will work for companies and teams who are getting new people into their organisation, and have to get everyone to understand each other and work together. However, this method will only work if everyone participates.

And this method is…

A Motivational Team Building Program. 

Nah Nah… before you go ahead and blast ‘it’s just another program’… wait wait. It is not your usual team bonding program over meals, or some ice breaking games. This type of programs has been in the market for a while, and most of these programs are only accessible to top management teams executives.

And it is also not your typical motivational program! Yea, you may have heard of those kinds of program that get you to shout at the top of your voice, to move and run and to force yourself out of the comfort zone. True enough, these techniques do work definitely to help bring you and your people towards a higher motivation level.

Now, a motivational team building will be one that is a combined program of building a team, in a motivational way. And this is equally effective for people who are new to the organisation, and people who have been working in the organisation for some time. The purpose of having a motivational team building program is to get everyday together, start on the same course, work on the same objectives, with the same mindset.

Imagine this. You bring a group of people together to complete a certain mega project. You know all their individual capabilities, but you are unsure of how they will work together when everyone is involved in the team. This is because, everyone has different work experience and work backgrounds, hence, even though they are skilled, they may not be mentally prepared to work with people they don’t know!

Hence with a program like this, you sit everyone down in a location and be fully focused on the objectives of the program. They will go through a set of activities and challenges as part of the program. The program will definitely get them to interact and mingle with one another.

But that’s not all about the program. If the program is effective, they will also ‘frustrate’ the people by making the challenges difficult. This will get them to think and solve problems together – and that is what will happen when working in a team!

Many people underestimate the power of working in teams and solving problems together. They though that if people are smart enough, they will work with others to solve the problems.

NO! It might shock you if you realise that many people have silos mentality, which means they will only believe in their own ability, or only work with people they care most, and never about people whom they don’t know.

Hence, by being frustrated during the activities, they uncover the strengths and weaknesses of their new found team members and realised how they can work together. As the activities are ‘harmless’, it is meant to simulate real life situations that the employees will face in their real war zone – their business setting.

The amazing thing is that when the participants complete the whole program together, they will not only be just friends who can share their life over a coffee, they may also be best working buddies with like-minded thoughts and ideas.

Therefore, if you are determined to build a strong team fast, don’t just go for fun activities. Yes, it will bond the team, but it might not translate into better working relationships at the workplace – which is ultimately the best result you want from a teambuilding program.

There are many team building companies in Singapore, but if you are truly determined to build a strong team with motivational elements, then we will recommend Deep Impact Team Building, a company which also conduct leadership training courses and motivational talks. With a combined expertise, they are able to deliver team building programs that fits to your objectives.

Alright!

Improving your H2 Math Grades With Tuition? Read this guide first!

H2 Math for A levels is considered one of the most difficult subjects for JC students. It is also a very important subject, if you want to enter local university, or apply for scholarship. H2 Math is taken by all science students, and also some arts students. Of course, science students have an advantage in taking H2 Math – They are SCIENCE Students for a reason!

But hey, not all science students are good at H2 Math!

That is why H2 Maths Tuition comes into place. Many students sign up for tuition so that they can improve their grades. However, there are still things you have to know before you sign up for any tuition. Because, tuition is not a miracle pill that if you take it, you will definitely score for your H2 Math. You will still fail even if you have tuition!

Here’s how to get the most out of your dollars in tuition:

1) Attend both your school class and tuition class

Many students thought that once they have tuition, everything will be taken care of. That means, if they don’t understand something in class, they can always find their tuition teacher to explain. Even if they skip or fall asleep in class, it is okay. Their tuition teacher will teach them again.

That’s a serious mistake. That’s the wrong attitude!

The students who see results in improving their math grades are students who keep learning, regardless in class or in tuition. Tuition classes are there to supplement your learning when you fall off track in your school system. Your school is still your main learning centre for your maths, and other subjects.

2) Do your homework yourself

One reason why students struggle with math is because most are not doing. Most are reading! Math is something that needs to be WORKED on, not read and memorized! Many students thought that just by doing some questions, and continue to read the other questions, they will understand the whole topic. Some even referred to answers when doing exercises because they thought they knew it all.

If you really want to improve your math, you should always do your best to get the right answers. Not your teachers, or your tutors will help you solve, until you have tried hard enough. Only through the hard work and headaches of solving those questions, you will learn.

3) Practice ALL types of question

H2 Math is unique in a way that the questions you attempted in school may not be the same type of question you will encounter in exams. Hence, you will always have to keep trying all sorts of math papers and questions out there to expand your knowledge of solving these questions. Get the papers from your school or from your tuition teachers. Practice and more practice. (This is math!)

 

Above are just some methods that are taught by BrainMatter Tuition Centre when giving tuition to their students. Brain Matter classes are regularly attended by top JC students because of its effectiveness and delivery of top results. If you are looking to improve your examination grades to enter the university of your choice, then you should check out H2 Maths Tuition here by Brain Matter.
