Improve grades, starting today
Is Education Important?
According to a survey announced by HSBC in May 2016, Singaporean parents place their children’s education near the top of their financial pyramid, with more than half of parents surveyed stating that they would be willing to go into debt to fund their children’s university education.
This survey revealed that 55% of Singaporean parents rated funding their children’s education as more important than paying bills and saving for their own retirement, while 38 per cent said that they prioritise it over paying their mortgage.
The study, which surveyed more than 6,200 parents across 15 countries, also found that Singaporeans are willing to spend their hard-earned money to back up the strong emphasis placed on education.
In fact, parents in Singapore spend an average of US$15,623 (S$21,061) per year on their child’s university education, more than twice the global average of US$7,631.
Of the 15 countries in the survey, only parents from the United Arab Emirates and Hong Kong spend more than Singaporeans at US$18,360 and US$16,182 a year respectively. Parents in Egypt and Indonesia spend the least on average.

Employers Appreciate Good Academic Grades
Graduating from a top university in South Korea is seen as the means for the youth to ensure future socio-economic status, marriage prospects, and employability (ie higher income) prospects at top multi-national companies and chaebols.
South Korean parents expect their children to compete for top marks, and studying hard to be one of the top students is pervasive throughout rural or city schools. Parents’ objective: improve grades.
About 65% of South Koreans aged between 25 to 34 have university degrees, the highest number in the OECD – whose global average is 39%
Singapore Youth With University Degrees
In Singapore, about 60% of youth in this age group have university degrees.
These numbers from the Straits Times are sobering:
Jobs That Need University Degrees
In the United States, top-ranked Georgetown University estimates that 35 percent of job openings in the United States will require at least a bachelor’s degree; 30 percent of the job openings will require some college or an associate’s degree; 36 percent of the job openings will not require education beyond high school.
According to the U.S. Department of Education, National Center for Education Statistics. (2015), in 2013 median earnings for young adults with a bachelor’s degree were US$48,500, compared with US$23,900 for those without a high school credential, US$30,000 for those with a high school credential, and US$37,500 for those with an associate’s degree.
Double The Salary
In other words, young adults with a bachelor’s degree earned more than twice as much as those without a high school credential (103 percent more), 62 percent more than young adult high school completers, and 29 percent more than associate’s degree holders. Additionally, in 2013 median earnings for young adults with a master’s or higher degree were US$59,600, some 23 percent more than median earnings for young adults with a bachelor’s degree.
Whether we are living in the United States or in Singapore, many highly coveted jobs require a minimum of a degree.
According to the Straits Times on 2 March 2016, median salaries for university graduates in 2015 rose to a new high of $3,300, up from $3,200 for the class of 2014.

Free, Easy and Effective Tutor Matching
Hire a reliable tutor within your budget and according to your requirements.
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.
