Improve your English with an experienced English tutor
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.”
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.
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.
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.
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.

Through the years, we have established a broad and deep network of specialist tutors in all the academic levels (primary and secondary schools, and junior college) and across academic subjects.
Best Tutor has developed the most effective methods of matching qualified experienced tutors to help students perform better at exams. Every student has different learning needs. Some students learn by cramming everything in a short period of time, hours before major exams. Others need constant reinforcing in order to understand the content. Best Tutor knows how to find committed tutors who can identify the causes for lower than expected grades, and tailor the lessons to suit the learning needs of each student.
Catch The Problem Early
The core learning methodology of the Singapore education system is that each skillset is the foundation for future lessons, much like Lego bricks being carefully situated next to the other.
Build a strong foundation for your child. Remedial tutoring can start at any age, but catching the problem early is best.
Hire A Tutor
Bring in a tutor because you know that when your child stays “I don’t care”, he really means “I am too scared to care because then I might fail”.
If you are a student whose parents and teachers are often complaining that you are not putting in enough effort into your work, hiring a home tutor will help you know if your study methods and exam skills are correct.
Making the decision to hire a private tutor AND finding the right one can make all the difference in helping your child get his education back on track.
