How To Choose The Right History Private Tuition Teacher And Tuition Agency

Experience level of the tutor  – You may find certain tutors quote higher hourly rates,  and it’s generally true that “you get what you pay for”. 

Often, the ability to improve their students’ grades, as well as the experience level of a tutor is linked to their rates. We can help you to find the optimum balance between an experienced tutor that is suitable for your child’s academic targets, and the most qualified tuition teacher that is a worthy investment!

Tuition teacher rates – Tuition rates vary according to the experience and academic achievement of the tuition teacher, as well as tutor availability. 

Tutors who specialize in teaching graduating students preparing for their PSLE, GCE O Levels and GCE A Levels tend to charge slightly higher because of the intensive and specialized revision of content and exam preparation that is required.  

Familiarity with syllabus – The Singapore MOE syllabus continually goes through major or minor changes. It is important that the tuition teacher is up to date with the current marking schemes and exam requirements,  as well as the latest content in the revised syllabus.

The quality of tuition agency’s database – An excellent tuition agency would be familiar with the track records and the past performance of their tutors, in order to be able to recommend parents the most suitable tuition teacher to meet their needs.

Size of the tuition agency’s database – It would be wise to select a tuition agency with a large number of qualified tuition teachers in their database as this would allow their tuition coordinators to find the best match for your requirements. 

Choose an agency that has between 20,000 to 60,000 tuition teachers in their team.

Established tuition agencies are more likely to have a better pool of tutors as they have been present in the market for a longer time and have managed to build up a substantial number of credible and responsible tutors who had registered in their system. Experienced tuition teachers tend to trust only reputable and dependable tuition agencies.
