Singapore's Tuition Landscape

Singapore education system has been developed and greatly refined by the pool of educators anchoring the ever-changing landscape. 
The system is very robust and ensures students are given the best opportunity to excel in their strengths! 
The time commitment is a mandatory requirement on the students’ part and if the child is unable to catch up in sufficient time, he or she will get left behind.
Over the years, from the changes, tuition, has changed from a want to a need in every household in Singapore.

All our children have different abilities and processing time. We need to provide our children with the right supplement to ensure that they are learning at the maximum potential rate.
Finding the right and suitable tutor is essential for this. Hiring a tutor depends on many factors:

1) Budget – We need to be realistic as we have our finances to manage but we also need to provide our best possible.
2) Proximity – Best situation is to have the tutor come to your house to save your time. Why do you want to pay more and spend more time to bring your child to a different venue?
3) Suitable tutor – You need to hire a tutor who is able to help your child at their level. E.g. hiring an MOE teacher with a vast number of experience to teach your child basic mathematics might cause a burn in your pocket. It is important to find the suitable tutor to teach your child at his or her competency level and change the tutor when necessary to improve the competency.
4) Communication – This is the most important point in hiring a tutor. It is very important to communicate with the tutor prior to hiring the tutor. This will give you an understanding of the tutor’s competency and how the tutor (strategies) will be able to help your child.
Currently, all tuition agencies in Singapore do not allow the parent to communicate with the tutor prior to engagement due to security reasons. And most of the time the tutor is chosen by the coordinator rather than the parent themselves. Do you think a coordinator will know the needs of your child?
House Tutor, is the first and only platform in Singapore to allow both parents and tutors to chat on our site. Direct communication is established between parent and the tutor so that they can converse to understand each other and how the child can benefit.
Come and join us at and go through our pool of tutors to find yourself the tutor of your choice.

Hope you found that useful!
