1. Identify Reputable Agencies

Many tuition agencies in Singapore offer home tuition Services.

A few of those also have bad practices that might cause some issues in the future (Tutor Blacklist).

Before you provide your details to any tuition agency, check online for any bad/negative reviews for the shortlisted agencies. A brief Google search will bring up some providers that you should avoid.

Google Search of "Home Tuition"

Above is retrieved from a Google Search of the keyword “home tuition”.

You can read the reviews from their past clients, and based on their Google Reviews, and make your decision from there.

2. Find out Level & Subject Tuition

Before you even considered looking for tuition, there should be about 1-2 subjects that have in mind already.

The most common subject that Parents look for is Maths – P6 Maths, OLevel EMath and AMath, JC H2 Maths.

Followed by the Sciences, either Science or Physics/Chemistry/Biology.

Based on our experience, one subject that most Parents neglect until the last minute is English. Reason being they speak it everyday, and should have no problem scoring – but that misconception can never be more wrong.

3. Fill in Online Request Form

You can fill out their Online Request Form, or give them a call directly.

Usually agents/coordinators will respond really quickly, and provide follow up information as well as Tutors for you to choose from.

4. Furnish Additional Details

During liaising with the agents/coordinators, you can add in any requirements or preferences you have.

Some common preferences for the Tutor would include race/gender. This is strongly not recommended as it would wipe out 50% of all available tutors to match.

Common additional requests by Parents: 

– Phone interview before confirming
– Trial Lesson to assess suitability
– Bring certificates and IC (not needed since verified on our end prior)
– Provide additional materials such as School papers & questions

5. Start the First Lesson

You will be choosing a Tutor from a few that the agency provides.

Once the tuition details have been confirmed, you can commence the first lesson!

If the tutor turns out to be unsuitable, you should be able to request for a cancellation/termination for the tutor. TuitionAgency.SG provides free cancellation and replacement of Tutor. (See: Tutor Horror Stories)
