Choosing the right A Level home tuition teacher

What are the 7 most important criteria to look for in an A Level tutor?

Be sure about what to look out for, before you engage a private tutor.

Read the following, even if you are very busy.

The information can definitely help you save some cash and time, and perhaps secure a tutor who can stay with you for the long haul.

1. Academic credentials

Years ago, Tuition In Singapore received feedback from parents that they want to be shown profiles of only university undergraduates, graduated tutors with PhD/Master’s/Bachelor’s, or NIE-trained MOE teachers.

They strongly prefer tutors with a qualifying criteria of a minimum of 2 years of tutoring experience in the same/closely-related subject that the tutors were giving home tuition in.

Since then, parents told us that tuition sessions proceeded smoothly, with the students’ grades starting to improve first by 5 marks, then by up to 30 marks.

These gains in marks were because the experienced and academically qualified tuition teachers were able to effectively value-add to the learning process, generate deeper and more interesting insights, and impart valuable study strategies when explaining content from the A Level syllabus.

2. Familiarity with the latest A Level curriculum, exam requirements and marking scheme

The A Level syllabus has been revised many times over the years, and it is crucial that your A Level tutor is familiar with the current content and syllabus so that you are correctly prepared for your exams.

The SEAB-MOE sets unconventional questions at every exam.

This allows them to distinguish between students who are average or advanced. 

Rote learning and repeated practice of ten-year series questions are no longer effective.

When your tutor uses a wide range of question types for you to practice on, you will be better equipped to handle questions that require sophisticated analytical skills and also content mastery.

Notes provided by lecturers in junior college are usually of high quality.

Top students rely on them – and particularly, the notes that they themselves meticulously had researched and compiled.

Questions in the national and school exams increasingly require outstanding application skills.

It is never enough to just understand and remember whatever is in your notes, because exam questions will ask you how to solve novel problems.

A Level tutors from Tuition In Singapore have significant depth and breadth in steering their students to weave critical analysis with all the substantial information that the student has learnt, to enable the answers to score as close to maximum marks as possible.

3. Cost vs. quality & commitment

Balancing the cost of hiring a tutor against his/her reliability and academic quality is always tricky.

Finding the “cheapest” tutor around may not be as marvelous a bargain as you might think.

Sometimes, tutors charge low rates out of compassion for their financially-needy students – and we are proud of these dedicated and passionate tutors.

Typically, tutors quote rates based on their academic qualifications, number of years of experience, and consistent ability to help their students’ grades improve.

Their hourly rates are usually based on what other parents are currently paying them.

If the student is living in a location that is difficult to access through public transport (eg landed property, Sentosa), parents might add another say $10 on top of the regular hourly rate.

We can easily identify tutors with high levels of determination and commitment from all of the extras that they invest in their students: they don’t mind leaving later than the scheduled lesson period; they plan their lessons well and deliver lessons enthusiastically; they try different methods of teaching to engage unmotivated students; they prepare special sets of notes in their free time for students who need them; they give regular feedback to parents on the progress of their children; and they advise parents on next steps that will help their children.

4. Experience

The rich experience of a seasoned tutor enables him/her to immediately spot the precise problems in students that is causing them to lose valuable marks in their homework, tests and weighted assessments.

They can then immediately administer the most effective corrective remedy, so that the student can understand what not to do – as well as know when to use the correct answering methods.

Experienced tutors better understand the question pattern asked in the exams, and can formulate appropriate strategies that can work for the student.

5. Logical and detailed explanations

Professional A Level tutors are aware of the common mistakes made by students who have not been able to properly understand the comprehensive and detailed content that was being taught in school.

The junior college workload is heavy, and the pace is very fast.

Students are required to grasp the knowledge within 2 to 3 years, and to take ownership of their education.

This is a stark contrast to primary and secondary school education, where students are able to build their foundation over a longer period of time.

Students would often find themselves with little or no time for completion of tutorials and/or revisions.

The A Level programme is geared towards a balance of content-mining, and writing and analytical skills.

What will help students to secure an A in the A Level exam is always logic, not content.

A Level tutors from Tuition In Singapore therefore give clear and thorough explanations of the foundational content.

We will then transition the student to acquire and enhance their application skills.

All of this is done at the pace that the student is comfortable with, and the content progresses only after the student has understood and sufficiently learned the fundamental modules.

6. Punctuality and discipline

Your child must build good study habits.

If the home tutor has slack habits about arrival time, is easily distracted, or frequently postpones lessons, the student may become casual about his studies.

A disciplined and punctual home tutor helps the child to cultivate these same traits.

7. Compatibility with the student

Many parents overlook the importance of communication between the student and the private tuition teacher.

This is one of the most crucial factors to consider when you want to hire a home tutor.

Your child should communicate with the home tutor about the chapters that she is most worried about, so that the tutor knows the areas he can help with.

An approachable and encouraging tutor can make learning enjoyable, rewarding, and fulfilling.

Get the best deals when hiring an A Level tuition teacher

Three easy ways to ensure successful grade improvement:

Reduce tutoring requirements

The availability of tutors and their qualifications affect tuition costs. 

The more requirements you have, the harder it is to find a tutor who will respond to your assignment.

The usual specifications include things like gender, a mix of subjects, a budget, a schedule, etc.

You should shortlist the requirements that are most crucial to you.

For instance, if you only want female tuition teachers, your options are cut in half.

It is also a good idea to hire two different tutors to teach two distinct subjects, even if they themselves scored As in both of the subjects you require tuition for. 

This is because most tuition teachers are really skilled at teaching just one subject.

Major national exams

Higher hourly fees are often quoted by tutors who specialize in or have extensive experience teaching students preparing for the high-stakes PSLE, SEC, GCE O Levels, and GCE A Levels.

This is because there has to be a lot of work put into exam preparation, material revision, and, if necessary, getting the student to unlearn study habits that have been resulting in poor grades in past years.

Good tutors typically avoid teaching graduating-year students after the March holidays since they will need to rush and  intensely cram a lot of material within a short period of time in order to appropriately prepare the student.

Parents therefore prefer to choose a dependable A Level tuition teacher at least a year before the important National Examinations.

Budget

We encourage our clients to be realistic with the tuition budget that they would like to work within.

The hourly tuition rates are neither regulated nor changed by Tuition In Singapore.

Tutors with proven track records that consistently deliver A grades, tuition teachers with many years of experience, and MOE teachers are already accepting assignments within a certain hourly rate.

These tutors are unlikely to accept prices that are lower their existing rates due to the constant high demand for their services and waiting lists.

Difficult exam questions - why it's happening

More and more students are able to correctly answer increasingly harder questions year after year. 

You are likely to have come across questions that were much easier in the Ten Year Series than what students from other top schools are required to answer in their exams in recent months. 

Because so many students are able to answer challenging questions, the creators of exams at schools/SEAB/MOE are forced to include increasingly more difficult questions in order to distinguish between the top and the average students in each cohort.  

As a result, when it is your turn to take the exam, the questions will be substantially harder.

In a way, it’s a vicious circle. 

Parents want to hire qualified private tutors to better prepare their children to compete against their peers since everyone is concerned that the exam questions will be more complex when it is their turn to take the exam. The students work harder in class and during tuition, and succeed in getting good grades.

Because the students were so well-prepared and achieve good results for the exams, the exam papers and results are then scrutinized.

After the exam papers and results are analyzed, it is determined that the questions are too simple because the students were so well-prepared and, on the whole, received decent grades as a result of hiring competent home tutors.

This then makes it necessary that the questions for the following year be increasingly harder in order for the exams to be able to distinguish who should get A’s or B’s.

And this makes it much more important for parents to hire effective private tutors in order for their children to catch up sufficiently.

Parents will do all in their power (as loving parents) to give their children that competitive edge because the goal is to do better than the other person rather than just to obtain a specific grade.

Also, it’s not just about keeping up with other students with better grades, but also to make sure their children don’t feel “stupid’’ or “left out’’ and end up really hating the subject just because others are so good at it.

For many students, the most effective confidence builders are good grades.

Get a private teacher who can focus on your child’s areas of weakness.

Encourage your child not to fall behind. It’s is crucial for their future.

SINGAPORE’S LEADING PRIVATE TUITION AGENCY

HOW DO I REQUEST FOR A TUTOR?

You can request for a tutor by submitting our online Request Form.

Upon receiving your request, we will Whatsapp you to discuss your child’s academic needs. We will spend the next few hours shortlisting several suitable tutors within our database and network for your consideration.

Our working hours are from 9am to 9pm, seven days a week.

Tuition usually commences within one week after you have selected a tutor.

TRIAL LESSON

The paid trial lessons can be 1.5 hours or 2 hours per session.

CAN I CHANGE THE TUTOR AFTER THE TUITION BEGINS?

You just need to pay for the tuition session(s) that have been conducted. There will not be any extra charges for the change.

AM I ABLE TO VIEW THE TUTOR’S CERTIFICATES BEFORE THE FIRST LESSON?

You can request to see the hardcopies of certificates of your tutor to be presented to you during the first lesson.

The client acknowledges that it is his/her responsibility to verify the suitability, credentials and qualifications of any tutor with whom he/she engages.

HOW MUCH DO I PAY FOR YOUR TUTOR MATCHING SERVICES?

Tuition In Singapore is Singapore’s leading private tuition agency and our matching service is free for students/parents requesting for tutors. This is because our agency commission is charged to the tutor, not to you.

The client will pay to Tuition In Singapore half of the fees payable in the first 4 calendar weeks. This amount is the commission to Tuition In Singapore for matching the tutor to the client, and will be borne by the tutor.

Thereafter, the client will pay the tuition fees directly to the tutor.

If lessons are postponed during the first two weeks, the commission payable to Tuition In Singapore will be based on the tuition session conducted the subsequent week(s).

The tutor shall collect all fees due to the tutor from the parent after the two weeks. Tuition In Singapore will not assist in any recovery of fees.

PAYMENT OF FEES

The client is required to pay tuition fees only for the number of hours of lessons given by the tutor.

If you decide to stop the tuition after the first lesson, you are required to pay for only that lesson.

Please transfer the fee for that lesson to Tuition In Singapore and we will transfer the tutor’s fee to him/her.

Tutors are not authorized at any time to collect the payment on Tuition In Singapore’s behalf.

Tuition fees are to be paid every 4 weeks to the tutor, unless otherwise agreed between the client and the tutor.

PAYMENT MODE

We will provide our bank account information for you to make payment via internet banking or ATM transfer directly to Tuition In Singapore’s bank account.

If the client fails to pay us, Tuition In Singapore reserves the right to terminate the Assignment. This is in fairness to the tutor, who might need to give the available slot to another client if this Assignment does not materialize.

Once the payment is received, it will be acknowledged in the form of a receipt, issued to the payer (Parent/Requestor/Guardian) via Whatsapp, sms, email or other electronic communications medium. We will also provide details of the Tuition Assignment that can include: tutor’s name, hourly fee, date of commencement of tuition, subject(s), level, duration of each lesson and frequency, etc.

FIRST LESSON

Once the client accepts the tutor’s candidacy, the client will not be able to change the schedule of the First Lesson.

Clients are allowed to make changes in the schedule after the First Lesson is over. However, Tuition In Singapore hopes that this is not necessary as the tutor has already reserved that slot of time for you.

If you want to make changes in the schedule, please consult with your tutor to ask if he/she is able to change the schedule or not.

The tutor is to bring his/her identity document, academic transcripts/certificates and relevant documents for the First Lesson for verification purposes.

If the tutor is unable to conduct the First Lesson of a tuition assignment, the tutor must call Tuition In Singapore at least 3 business days before the actual lesson. If the tutor fails to notify Tuition In Singapore of his/her cancellation/postponement, an administrative charge of S$30 will be imposed on him/her.

If the tutor fails to contact Tuition In Singapore with a valid reason to inform us about the tutor’s absence from the lesson, the tutor’s profile at Tuition In Singapore may be blacklisted. This will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

LOCATION OF TUTORING LESSONS

Tutors will conduct lessons at the student’s residence unless otherwise specified and agreed upon by both the client and the tutor.

If the client has a request for the tuition to be conducted at another location (eg a friend’s home), Tuition In Singapore will ask if the tutor is able to accommodate the request.

Tuition In Singapore and the tutor will not be responsible if the given location is occupied or not available for use for the lessons and the officially scheduled timings will still be counted as a paid lesson.

TUTOR REASSIGNMENT OR CANCELLATION OF ASSIGNMENTS

There is no obligation or contract to complete a fixed number of lessons, except for the First Lesson.

If at any time the client is not satisfied with the tutor, the client may request a replacement or termination. However, the client is responsible for paying the fee for the number of lessons given prior to termination.

Tuition In Singapore will discuss separately with the client and the tutor regarding future tuition arrangements, and Tuition In Singapore will change the tutor for the client. There will not be any extra charges for the change and the client needs to pay just for the tuition session(s) that have been conducted.

If the client cancels a tutoring assignment before the tutor completes the agreed number of lessons for the first 4 calendar weeks, Tuition In Singapore assumes full claim to 50% of the tuition fees for the total number of lessons delivered in the month. For example, if the client had requested for 8 lessons per month, but the assignment was cancelled after the 5th session, Tuition In Singapore will be paid pro-rated commission for the 5 lessons conducted.

Tuition In Singapore will not be liable for any payment charges or issues arising from the cancellation of tuition assignments by the client.

If the client terminates the Assignment because the tutor is often late, skips lessons without valid explanations etc, the tutor will bear Tuition In Singapore’s full commission fee.

If the tutor cancels the Assignment after confirming acceptance (that is, the client’s contact information and address have been given to the tutor), the tutor will need to compensate the commission which amounts to 50% of the fees payable (as stated in the confirmation Whatsapp, sms, email or other forms of electronic communications messages) for the first 4 weeks.

If the tutor wishes to cancel a Tuition Assignment before the end of the first 4 calendar weeks, the tutor is to inform both Tuition In Singapore as well as the client at least 3 days before the next lesson date. Tuition In Singapore will recover our legal share of the one-time commission of 50% of the fee for the first 4 calendar weeks from the tutor. Tutors are encouraged to have a long-term commitment as the clients have vested their trust in them.

TERMINATION

The tutor will receive full or pro-rated payment for the number of lessons rendered, provided the tutor has complied with the Terms of this Agreement.

The client has the right to terminate the tuition if the tutor is unable to produce the documents certifying his/her credentials. In such cases, the tutor has to pay Tuition In Singapore the amount of money equivalent to the tuition fee for the day, as commission.

DISCLAIMER
