Yes. We require our tutors to submit a digital copy (screenshots/photos) of their Results Certificates – PSLE, O Levels, A Levels, to verify their credentials.
Tutors that are unable to produce the above will not be considered for the assignment.

You will only be liable to pay for the Commission Fee after you have been successfully matched an assignment.
TuitionAgency.SG’s Commission is calculated at 50% of the first 4 weeks of the agreed tuition frequency.
Tuition frequency is usually based on once, twice or thrice a week. Our Commission is based only on the first 4 active weeks of tuition, not subjected to cancellation of lessons.
Tuition rate = $50/h
Tuition frequency: 1 lesson/week x 2h
Tuition Fees (4 weeks): 1 lesson x 2h x $50/h x 4 weeks = $400.00
Commission Fee = $400.00 x 50% = $200.00
We will collect the first 2 weeks of tuition fees. Tutor will only receive payment directly from the Parent starting from the 3rd week (assuming no cancellation of lessons).
Parent and Tutor are to make payment arrangements – weekly/monthly, cash/bank transfer.
If for any reason the Parent chooses to terminate the assignment before the completion of the first month, our Commission will be 50% of the total hours completed.
Tuition frequency = 1 lesson/week x 1.5h
Total number of completed lessons = 2 lessons
Total number of hours completed = 2 lessons x 1.5h = 3h
Commission = 3h x 50% = 1.5h
It depends based on your qualifications & experience. Some Parents also request for A Level graduates or Undergraduates, to fit their budget.
However, if you find that you do not have much experience or great qualifications, we advise you to lower your rates to build up your experience and Tuition Portfolio, and increase your chances of getting a job in the future.
Yes it will be difficult, since majority of our tutors are A Level graduates – most Parents prefer A Level graduates over Polytechnic students. It will be even more difficult if you did not obtain an A for the subject you are applying for.

(b) Provide detailed information of your Qualifications & Tutoring Experience. State number of years of tutoring experience, grades improvement of tutees, as well of number of students currently.
(c) If Parent requests to have a phone interview with you, speak confidently over the phone, elaborate on your teaching style and what you plan on doing for the first lesson.
