The Tutor and the Client will be solely responsible for any issues arising from the information that you have submitted to us

Use Of Information
The primary purpose in collecting personal information is to provide the Users with a smooth and customized matching experience.

To ensure success of the Tuition Assignment, Best Tutor is selective of the type of students we accept as there is a small percentage of students who are not suitable for tuition.

  • Private information such as name, NRIC registration number and birth data
  • Contact information such as email address, mobile number and physical residential address

The Tutor shall fill in as accurately and completely as possible his/her qualifications, results, relevant experience, subject and level preferences, and will update such information in a timely manner

The Tutor shall not mislead Users accessing the Website and using Best Tutors services. You will not provide inaccurate, invalid, false or incomplete information to Best Tutor

The Tutor is solely responsible for any legal liability arising out of or relating to the Tutor Profile submitted to Best Tutor, and shall indemnify Best Tutor against any and all claims, damages, liability, loss, or causes of action (including legal fees and expenses that may be incurred by Best Tutor) in connection with the provision of services by this Website

Tuition Requests And Assignments  
The Tutor understands that the information submitted to Best Tutor pertaining to his/her qualifications may be released by Best Tutor to the Client(s) for the purpose of tuition matching

The Tutor and the Client explicitly agree to Best Tutor contacting you via phone call, sms and/or other electronic communications channels to conduct tuition matches

If the proposed Assignment interests you, please reply us via sms or through the same electronic communications channel that we contacted you with

Please note that Assignments would be confirmed with the Client and Tutor based on the most qualified match and prompt response from the Tutor

We reserve complete rights to reject any applications for the Assignments

If the Tutor is not interested in the Assignment that we contacted you with, please let us know that you are not interested or not available

Clients’ Criteria For Selecting Tutors
The criteria stated by the Client for each Tuition Assignment can differ from case to case

Tuition Assignments are based on tuition demand and how well the profile of each Tutor matches with the Client’s requirements

Best Tutor makes Tutor recommendations based on the Tutors’ known track record in successful tutoring

The submission of the Tutor’s profile to the Client does not bind the Client to engage the services of the Tutor, and remains subject to confirmation and payment of the First Lesson Fees by the Client

Fees And Commission

Once the Tutor and the Client confirm a match, the tuition rate is non-negotiable once agreed upon

The Client will pay the Fees amounting to half of the Fees payable in the first 4 calendar weeks. This amount shall be deemed as the commission to Best Tutor for matching the Tutor to the Client, and will be borne by the Tutor who will forgo receiving the said Fees paid by the Client

Therefore, no payment will be paid by the Client to the Tutor for half of the lessons conducted in the first month

Thereafter, the Client will pay the tuition fees directly to the Tutor. The Tutor shall collect all fees due to the Tutor from the Client after the first month. Best Tutor will not assist in any recovery of fees

Tuition fees are to be paid every 4 weeks to the Tutor, unless otherwise agreed between the Client and the Tutor

If lessons are postponed during the first two weeks, the Commission payable to Best Tutor will be based on the tuition session conducted the following week(s)

Trial Lesson

There are no free trial lessons. ​

Tutoring Location
​The Tutor will be teaching at the Student’s residence at the mutually agreed upon time, unless separately specified and agreed between the Client and the Tutor. The Tutor must provide his/her own transport to the Client’s home/lesson location.

First Lesson
Once the Client accepts the Tutor’s candidacy, the Client will not be able to change the schedule of the First Lesson

Clients are allowed to make changes in the schedule after the First Lesson is over. However, Best Tutor hopes that this is not necessary as the Tutor has already reserved that slot of time for the Client. If the Client wants to make changes in the schedule, the Client is to consult with the Tutor to ask if he/she is able to change the schedule or not

The Tutor is to bring your NRIC, academic transcripts/certificates and relevant documents for your first lessons with the Client for verification purposes

If the Tutor is unable to conduct the First Lesson of a tuition assignment, the Tutor must call Best Tutor at least 3 business days before the actual lesson. If the Tutor fails to notify Best Tutor of the tutor’s cancellation or postponement, an administrative charge of S$30 will be imposed on the Tutor

If the Tutor fails to contact Best Tutor with a valid reason to inform us about the Tutor’s absence from the lesson, the Tutor’s profile at Best Tutor may be blacklisted. This will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis

You are encouraged to carefully and responsibly consider before committing to an Assignment

Central Provident Fund
​Tutors agree to be responsible for all required obligations to the Central Provident Fund as a self-employed person. This is because, you, as a Tutor, are providing private tutoring services under a contract of service to the Client as an independent contractor. The Tutor is not an employee of Best Tutor, and the Tutor accepts full responsibility for all income tax and other liabilities payable in relation to any fees generated from a tuition contract.

Tutor Reassignment Or Cancellation Of Assignments
If at any time the Client is not satisfied with the Tutor, the Client may request a replacement or termination. However, the Client is responsible for paying the fee for the number of lessons given prior to termination

Best Tutor will discuss separately with the Client and the Tutor regarding future tuition arrangements, and Best Tutor will change the Tutor for the Client. There will not be any extra administrative charges for the change and the Client needs to pay just for the tuition session(s) that have been conducted

If the Client cancels a tutoring assignment before the Tutor completes the agreed number of lessons for the first 4 calendar weeks, Best Tutor assumes full claim to 50% of the tuition fees for the total number of lessons delivered in the month. For example, if the Client had requested for 8 lessons per month, but the assignment was cancelled after the 5th session, Best Tutor will be paid commission for the 5 lessons conducted

Best Tutor will not be liable for any payment charges or issues arising from the cancellation of tuition assignments by the Client

If the Client terminates the Assignment because the Tutor is often late, skips lessons without valid explanations etc, the Tutor will bear Best Tutor’s full commission fee

If the Tutor cancels the Assignment after confirming acceptance (that is, the Client’s contact information and address have been given to the Tutor), the Tutor will need to compensate the commission which amounts to 50% of the fees payable (as stated in the confirmation sms, email or other forms of electronic communications) for the first 4 weeks. If the Tutor wishes to cancel a Tuition Assignment before the end of the first 4 calendar weeks, the Tutor is to inform both Best Tutor as well as the Client at least 3 business days before the next lesson date. Best Tutor will recover our legal share of the one-time commission of 50% of the fee for the first 4 calendar weeks from the Tutor. Tutors are encouraged to have a long-term commitment as the Clients have vested their trust in you

Termination
The Client has the right to terminate the tuition if the Tutor is unable to produce the documents certifying his/her credentials. In such cases, the Tutor has to pay Best Tutor the amount of money equivalent to the tuition fee for the day as commission

The Tutor will receive full or pro-rated payment for the number of lessons rendered, provided the Tutor has complied with the Terms of this Agreement

Disclaimer
​​While Best Tutor tries to provide Clients and Tutors with the closest tutor match possible, we cannot guarantee a satisfying match. We hold no responsibility or liability for problems, unhappiness, or disputes that are a result of the Tutor or Client. Best Tutor will not act as an arbitrator for any disagreements that arise between Tutor and Client. However, Best Tutor may try to mediate whenever possible and reserves all rights to blacklist any party who is at fault. Best Tutor reserves the right to terminate or deny services to any Client or Tutor at any time.

Legalization Of Non-Written Contract
​​At the point of time which the contact details of the Clients or Tutor(s) are given to either party, Best Tutor reserves all rights to collect the full commission. This is regardless of whether the tuition is cancelled or postponed.​

Privacy

Tutor Qualifications
We have over 20,000 experienced tutors in our team.  Our tutors’ qualifications range from current teachers at MOE schools, experienced university undergraduates, university lecturers to PhD-holders. They are very familiar with the latest MOE syllabus and exam requirements.

Our tutors are shortlisted based on their academic background, teaching ability, experience, personality, motivation and reliability.

Tutors join our team because we are careful when matching their skills with students’ aspirations.

Just let us know your expectations and we will recommend a good match for you – within your requirements.

Who Hires Tutors?
Our clients include parents who are principals and teachers at MOE schools, university lecturers, professionals (lawyers, doctors, accountants), public sector executives, SME owners, young parents, and grandparents. We also match tutors with assignments at Singapore’s leading tuition centres.

Tuition Budget
Our tuition assignments suit all budgets, across Singapore.

Education Experts
We believe in delivering on each and every promise. 

If for any reason we feel that we are not able to fulfill the assignment, we will tell you, so that your time can be spent more fruitfully.

Why Best Tutor?
We are fast. We are well-known. 

We provide the winning edge in education services.

Best Tutor’s academic advisors include former Heads of Departments at top Singapore schools, the chairman of the World Education Council (https://www.facebook.com/WorldEducationCouncilPolicyMakers), an educational psychologist, and a university professor who specializes in pedagogy.

Parents, students and our tutors consult our academic advisors whenever they have concerns over memory skills, motivation, understanding and memorization techniques for key concepts, study methods, and all aspects of supplementary education.

Our expert resource persons will advise you on effective ways to learn, remember, and apply information that is required for you to succeed.

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.
