MOE Teachers, PhD/Master's, Graduates/Undergraduates

The MOE's new Teach Less Learn More syllabus emphasizes thinking skills - consider this approach carefully, when you hire experienced home tutors

The ability to think is skills-based, and anything that is skills-based requires practice to master.

It also requires individualized feedback from a subject expert, to guide our children on whether they are thinking through the matter correctly.

STUDENTS NOW FACE EXAMS THAT ARE FAR MORE DIFFICULT THAN BEFORE

A SAFE STRATEGY WOULD BE TO HIRE EXPERIENCED HOME TUTORS

Our students have to face challenges like increasingly difficult exam questions

Textbooks contain only a fraction of what students need to know to pass or excel in exams

The Ministry of Education has clearly stated in various press reports that it has empowered schools to produce their own curriculum materials

This has resulted in parents telling us that their children are sometimes given excellent (or not so excellent) material to read beyond their textbooks

This can make it harder for parents to assess if the school is adequately preparing their children for the major national exams

Meanwhile, some students are struggling with difficult exam questions during SAs and CAs

LATEST MOE SYLLABUS

Students learn at their own pace – this means that at home, you can choose to be studying the same chapters as the ones your school teacher is covering…or you can opt to study ahead, or revise one or two chapters behind your school

CORRECT EXAM SKILLS

Learn how to apply textbook knowledge so that you can confidently navigate unexpectedly difficult exam questions. 

Practice with a patient expert tutor, so that complex concepts are never frustrating again

GRADE IMPROVEMENTS

Over 80% of our students have grade improvements within the first 3 months of tuition

The other 20% achieve better grades within the first 2 months of tuition

IMPROVE YOUR GRADES TODAY WHEN YOU HIRE EXPERIENCED HOME TUTORS

Exams now require that students have not only studied the text books, but more importantly are able to apply the knowledge in a wide variety of non-familiar circumstances.

It is vital that you carefully research what your child needs, and identify a qualified and suitable tutor who can meet the school’s required teaching methods.

Parents are sometimes not intimately familiar with the latest exam and curriculum requirements. And, they also need to focus on their own busy careers in these challenging economic times.

NEW TUTORS JOIN OUR TEAM EVERY DAY

Because we are Singapore’s largest tuition agency – and already have such a large active tutor database – we are able to accept only professional tutors with proven abilities to improve their students’ grades. Quickly.

THE TYPES OF PRIVATE HOME TUTORS YOU CAN CONSIDER WHEN YOU WANT TO HIRE EXPERIENCED HOME TUTORS

Remember that when you are selecting tutors, it is their commitment, experience and qualifications that count

Current and Former MOE Teachers

Most are very experienced, and are able to quickly spot and correct the mistakes of students. They know the syllabus and exam requirements of their own school very well.

As different schools have developed syllabus and content that are different from textbooks and other schools, some MOE teachers might not be familiar with how and what other schools teach.

Experienced University Undergraduate Tutors

These students have proven academic ability. They had graduated at the top 1% to 20% of their entire student cohort of around 35,000 students (born in the same year as they were) annually. 

Because they are students themselves, these tutors are able to relate very well with the challenges and aspirations of the students that they teach.

They are also likely to have successfully taught siblings, cousins and peers who are/were studying in primary school, secondary school and junior college.

Coming fresh from junior college, they are closely in touch with the recent syllabus changes at Primary, Secondary or JC levels.

Some undergraduates from NUS, SMU or NTU may have their own university projects, or might need to go on overseas exchange programmes.

Experienced Graduate Part-Time Tutors

Most of these working professionals have accumulated much tutoring experience during their undergraduate days, have enjoyed their successful time teaching, and continue to want to be tutors even when they have jobs in the accounting, banking, or engineering industries.

Parents like the interesting alternative perspective that these tutors can give to their children, as they can make content come alive and relevant to their students’ lives.

These tutors’ teaching schedules are usually limited to after-6pm sessions, or during the weekends.

Experienced Graduate Full-Time Tutors

The income of these tutors is almost entirely from teaching, and they have rich tutoring experience because they teach students from a range of schools and students’ academic abilities in the subject(s) that they specialize in. 

Some full-time tutors are able to provide better or customized notes that cater to the learning style of their students.

The more popular full-time tutors have packed teaching schedules.

TUTORS FROM SINGAPORE'S LARGEST TUITION AGENCY

  • Have a proven track record of producing improved academic results in their students
  • Our experienced tutors use the latest MOE syllabus, marking schemes and exam formats so that students learn what is relevant for exams and their overall development
  • These tutors have been tutoring in that specific subject for the past few years
  • They themselves have achieved strong academic results in the subjects that they teach – meaning they are teaching your child the correct information that they need to learn

  • Year after year, our reputation ensures that we can attract the best tutors to be a part of our team

ALL OUR TUITION COORDINATORS ARE GRADUATES FROM SINGAPORE'S TOP 3 LOCAL UNIVERSITIES

This is important for our clients because if your tuition coordinator had never done well in school, he or she would not know what types of tutors can truly help you succeed in your studies

Or what each tutor’s greatest tutoring strengths are, compared to other tutors in our team

Two analogies – none of us will feel safe boarding a car if the driver had previously failed the driving test 4 times before managing to just pass – and many of us might not want to try out automated and driverless taxis unless the technology is proven to be safe

Top Tutors makes extra efforts to ensure that the tutor profiles we show you meet the highest academic standards and that the tutor matches are personalized according to every detail that you require

Top Tutors therefore hires tuition coordinators only if they have majored in the subjects that they are arranging tuition matches for

This means that when you are seeking a tutor for Math, the experienced tuition coordinator responsible for submitting profiles for you to review would have graduated from NUS, NTU or SMU in a Math-related subject, or would have scored distinctions in their junior college and secondary/primary Math-related school exams

SPECIALIST TUTORS

  • Whether it is Science, Math, English, Mother Tongue or the Humanities, our tutors have what it takes to teach
  • Our tutors help our students first comprehend and appreciate the concepts
  • Then, we work on the important exam skills that students must have, if they want to score well in their exams
  • We are Singapore’s largest tuition agency. We are very experienced and confident in helping students score much higher grades
  • Our philosophy is that when students are nurtured and guided well, the grades will very quickly improve

Our attention to detail during the matching process ensures that we recommend only tutors who are proficient in the subject, and whose teaching style matches how you prefer to learn

PRIVATE HOME TUITION IS USEFUL FOR:

  • Students who cannot focus in a big group
  • Students who are too shy to ask questions in class
  • Students who need the full attention of their tutors
  • Students who have specific weak areas to improve upon
  • Students who are performing reasonably well but would like to have a competitive edge over the other students – so that they have a better chance to be placed in the top classes and top schools
  • Students who are underperforming in comparison to their classmates, and the new information taught in school is starting to be overwhelming
  • Students who find some topics too vague and difficult to understand
  • Students whose busy parents have little time to help them with their homework, assignments and exams
