Experienced English Tutors will help your grades improve

Is English Important?

Like it or not, we all judge others by how they speak. At the same time, we are also judged by them. The way we speak and our choice of words tells our listeners a lot about us and our background.

What goes on in your mind when you hear English being spoken by people with these accents: French, Chinese, Americans, British?

Employers Appreciate Good English Skills

English has been described as “the language of opportunity”.

Founding Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew had said in 1999 that “We are learning English so that we can understand the world and the world can understand us.”

You Are What You Write And Speak

When you apply for a job, when you send an email to client, when you call your boss – chances are, you are using English.  How well you are able to communicate becomes your badge of identity. No matter what combination of languages you can speak and write, English is probably the most essential in a corporate environment.

Be Better Than Your Peers

It is an especially complex language to master, but once you do, it distinguishes you from your competitors.

English is the language of business and science. The more proficient you are in English, the better access you will have to a broader variety of careers.

High-Paying Jobs In Singapore 

Even if you are not thinking of working abroad, there are many well-paying jobs at the more than 7,000 multinational corporations in Singapore.

A Towers Watson Asia headquarters study found that Singapore hosts 41 per cent of Asia-Pacific headquarters among 319 global Fortune 500 companies. In comparison, Hong Kong hosts 34 per cent (while mainland China hosts 16 per cent).

 Who Speaks English?

English is the most commonly spoken language in the world. It is the official language of 60 of the world’s 196 countries. It is spoken by 1.5 billion people worldwide. That’s a lot of people to meet and speak to.

Did you know that 55% of the world’s webpages are written in English? Other popular languages are Russian, German, Japanese, Spanish, French and Chinese.

Knowledge of English therefore allows you to tap into far more of the world’s intellectual resources.

English is, of course, essential if you intend to pursue a scientific career. Within the Science Citation Index, an estimated 95% of articles are written in English.

Who Speaks Singlish?

Many of us do.

We use dental fractives like “tree” instead of “three”, and “datelai” instead of “deadline”.  Or, we have said “you got eat this before, or not?” and “Cannot anyhow do like this one, leh.”

It is too early yet to predict the future of Singlish. We use it for ease of communication with those who are more comfortable speaking either Singlish, Mandarin/dialects, Tamil/Hindi or Malay.

Perhaps most Singaporeans are still at the stage where we are defining and forming our cultural identity. And language of course plays a major role in how we view ourselves and others.

As the level of education rises with each new generation, increasing numbers of people will be effortlessly switching between Standard English and Singlish.

English Today

Currently, the English curriculum aims at being more interactive and fun for the student. The objective is to increase interest in languages.

Can My English Improve?

In school, you raise your hand but the teacher is busy. He is attending to three other students who had put up their hand just before you. The bell rings and class is over. You still don’t understand how to do the homework, and there’s SA next week.

Hiring qualified English tutors from Best Tutor will help you:

  • Write to suit purpose, audience and context in a way that is clear and effective
  • Use correct grammar, spelling and punctuation
  • Understand implied meaning
  • Identify key messages, main ideas and details in a variety of spoken and written texts
  • Infer and draw conclusions

You need to demonstrate mastery of these (and more), in order to do well in the major national exams administered by the Ministry of Education.

Be exam-ready. English. Make it work for you.

Signs That You Need Tuition

Hire Qualified Tutors So That Your Grades Can Improve

Students don’t fall behind all at once. It happens a little every day

Have any of these happened?

  • You listen carefully in school, but some concepts are just impossible to grasp. And you are too shy to ask your school teacher
  • Your daughter’s grades keep falling despite her best efforts
  • Your son’s teacher has sent you messages that he has not been handing in his homework
  • Your teacher told you “read more widely”. You are keen to do this, but how and where do you start?
  • You are losing confidence, and are very anxious about tests
  • Out of frustration, you have told your son, “If only you would try, I am sure that you can do well.”
  • You studied all the materials in the text book, but the exam question was about something that wasn’t in the book
  • You understand the exam question, and the content in your text book. But it’s so hard to apply what you’ve learnt
  • You have enrolled at tuition or enrichment centres, and you are still not able to cope with exam questions
  • Some mornings, you wake up feeling defeated and are dreading another day of school
  • Your daughter’s homework grades are generally good. But almost always, her CA and SA grades are disappointing
  • When you hand in homework, there are many errors even though the topics were already covered in class
  • You wonder if you have picked up bad study habits, and why your classmates are always doing better than you
  • You want to know why your son does not care about school work, and what you can do about it

When Do You Need Tuition?

Qualified tutors should be called upon when a student finds that the attention and support of a classroom teacher no longer meets their individual learning needs. This can be a result of many factors including:

  • Curriculum progression
  • Time constraints
  • Individual learning difficulties
  • Absence
  • Miscommunication between teacher and student

Engage Reliable Tutors 

Bring in reliable tutors because you know that when your child says “I don’t care”, he really means “I am too scared to care because then I might fail.”

Best Tutor will identify professional and effective tutors who are patient, caring and make the sincere efforts to help their student

If you are a student whose parents and teachers are often complaining that you are not putting in enough effort into your work, hiring qualified tutors will help you know if your student methods and exam skills are correct
