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

Tutor Categories

There Are Five Main Types Of Tutors that You Can Choose From:

  • Experienced undergraduate tutors
  • NIE trainees
  • Full-time tutors
  • Part-time tutors
  • Former/current school teachers

Experienced Undergraduate Tutors

  • University undergraduate tutors are usually aged 18 and above, and they make up a significant proportion of the home tutor population
  • They are pursuing their Bachelor’s, or are Master’s and PhD students at NUS, NTU or SMU
  • They might also be studying at  SUSS, SUTD or SIT
  • These home tutors are closest in age to their students, so they might be able to relate very well with the academic stress and challenges that your child is now faced with
  • Their knowledge of the latest curriculum is also very current, and they are likely to be able to share many valuable and proven examination tips with their students
  • Tutors that are still studying may have problems accommodating your child’s tutoring needs during their own examination periods, or if they need to be on internships or overseas exchange programmes
  •  Their tutor rates are generally between $25 to $45 per hour

National Institute of Education (NIE) Trainees

  • These undergraduates of the NIE are going through training at the Nanyang Technological University to become school teachers. After they graduate from the NIE, the MOE will post them to schools, to be full-time teachers
  • They have current knowledge of pedagogy/teaching methods, the latest MOE syllabus, and exam formats. Many of them had been private tutors before they enrolled in the NIE programme
  • Their tutor rates are generally between $45 to $60 per hour

Graduated Tutors

  • These experienced tutors have completed their university education and some hold full-time jobs in various industries like banking, law, medicine or engineering. They are available for classes only during weekday evenings or weekends. Many of them were private tutors when they were undergraduates at SMU, NUS and NTU
  • Graduated tutors often are able to offer interesting “real-world” perspectives to their students while teaching them. This helps with your child’s understanding of how knowledge can be applied, and makes learning more relevant to them
  • Sometimes, they may need to cancel or postpone lessons due to the demands of their full-time jobs, but make-up lessons can of course be easily mutually arranged
  • The rates for graduated tutors vary according to the number of years they have been tutoring and also the qualifications that they hold
  • Their tutor rates are generally between $35 to $85 per hour

Current MOE Teachers

  • The MOE stipulates that current teachers are able to accept up to 6 hours per week in part-time employment including tuition
  • Former teachers or retired teachers usually prefer to conduct lessons at their own homes rather than travel to students’ homes
  • They may have to reschedule tuition lessons due to school commitments
  • MOE teachers who have taught at the top schools generally quote higher fees
  • Their tutor rates are generally between $50 to $120 per hour

Full-time Tutors

  • The income of these dedicated tutors is entirely from giving tuition at students’ homes and/or at tuition centres. Most of them have many years of teaching or tutoring experience, and are very familiar with the MOE syllabus because they have taught the same topics many times to different students from a broad range of schools and academic abilities
  • They have good teaching methods and will be able to clearly convey important learning points
  • Experienced full-time tutors are often able to quickly identify the causes of the weakness that their students have in specific topic areas
  • As they have students studying at different schools, they can give valuable insights on useful content that is taught at other schools
  • Some of them may be able to provide better or customised notes for their students, especially notes that cater to the learning style of the student
  • Most of them specialize in a specific subject (or two), so you would be getting a subject expert when you hire full-time tutors
  • Full-time tutors usually have many students, and most have packed  schedules. Students might therefore need to work their schedules around those of their tutors
  • Their tutor rates are generally between $40 to $95 per hour
