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.

Here are some of the many happy students/parents and guardians who have hired
English tuition teachers from the best private tutor agency in Singapore

5/5
Mrs Lim

Parent

Harold’s English grades were good from P1 to P4. Then he started getting AL3 in P5. We heard that Tuition In Singapore provides the best English tuition in Singapore, so we hired a tutor from them. Mr Teo is very skillful when working with high ability students like my son, and Harold started getting AL2 and AL1 again, at the start of P6.

5/5
Natasha Hui

CHIJ St Theresa’s Convent

My History teacher told me that because my English sentence structures are weak, my History grades cannot improve. He said it is difficult to understand what I am try to answer in the assessment questions. My dad decided that I must start tuition in English immediately. Ms Chang is an ex-MOE teacher and she teaches English in a fun way. I learnt many useful writing tips from her.

5/5
Phao Yong Yeung

Kuo Chuan Presbyterian Secondary School

Most of my friends and family members speak Mandarin outside school. It is difficult for me to practice written and spoken English. After tuition with Ms Lilian started, my scores for Oral went up. My vocab and grammar also improved.

5/5
Christopher Khaw

Dunman High School Integrated Programme

The quality and personality of the tutor is very important. The other tutor who from another tuition agency is too low-energy and he rambled on and on without getting to the point. Mr Sam from Tuition In Singapore gets straight to the issue. He then elaborates until I understand, or until my creative ideas start. With his guidance, I have been getting high A’s for my compo and compre.

5/5
Sheikh Omar

Seng Kang Secondary School

My primary school English grades were so-so, and got worse when I started Sec 1. I was having problems with synthesis and compo. My mum decided that I needed help and should start secondary English tuition. Ms Sufiah is an ex-MOE teacher with many years of teaching and tutoring experience. She understood the problems I was facing with English. I managed to gain 5 marks, then 10 marks, then 15 marks. I became more confident that I will do well for the other subjects also, because English is closely connected to those subjects.

5/5
Joyce Su

Methodist Girls’ School (Secondary) IB Programme

I am attending a school where almost everyone has a strong command of English. They seem to effortlessly get 7’s for their English assessments. I mostly get 7’s and some 6’s, so I wanted to do some catching up. Ms Maya has a Master’s in English and English Literature. She is fantastic at creative writing, and she taught me how to use interesting words whenever I wrote. I was back to getting my 7’s again.

english tuition

Compete against your classmates/cohort - and win

We live in a hyper-competitive world. Even if you don’t want to proactively compete, others do.

And the truth remains that you are in competition against a large number of students from your school and from other schools for the same desirable courses and spots at universities.

Demand will always outpace supply for the top (or better) academic institutions, classes, and courses.

Students with average grades sometimes have to enroll in less prestigious universities and majors.

Being in certain academic tracks often determines one’s career choices and opportunities, which in turn eventually affects the types of lifestyles we are able to lead.

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.

How can you score higher marks for the PSLE English exam?

The examiner expects students to use correct grammar, spelling, and punctuation, as well as have a broad vocabulary.

They are also observing how the students organise their thoughts and express themselves.

Students are required to understand key concepts and context, and the questions can be either literal or inferential.

For reading questions, the examiners will want to know if your reading is well-paced and flows smoothly.

They want to see a well-thought-out structure as well as how well the student uses vocabulary and grammar for the speaking questions.

Learning English is an art, as well as a science.

To achieve a high score, you must master the science of grammar and learn the art of using words effectively.

To do well in oral communication, students should actively practice with in-depth discussions, presentations, and debates, to enhance their verbal and listening skills.

Tuition In Singapore’s has Singapore’s most sought-after Secondary Literature tutors.

Since 2010, we have been exclusively representing high quality and committed tutors comprising graduates (Bachelor’s, Master’s, PhD), MOE teachers, and university undergraduates.

Our top-tier home tutors have helped thousands of students, and each of our credible and responsible private tuition teachers have guided 95% of our Secondary Literature students to achieve at least 1 grade improvement in under just 3 months.  

We are familiar with the latest exam requirements, answering techniques, and the most current MOE syllabus.

Our home tutors are the most popular in Singapore because of their unbeatable in-depth expertise.

The study of literary texts cultivates a questioning mind, explores personal and social situations, and interrogates while managing ambiguities through the development of multiple perspectives of the content found in the texts, poems, drama/plays and prose/novels – to convey meaning.

You will learn grammatically correct structures, as well as Prose Text, Character Analysis, Plot, Theme, Essay Writing Skills, Prose and Unseen Poetry (local and global), Literary Devices, Writer’s Style, Setting, and Atmosphere,

The focus is not entirely on the technical aspects of English, but also on how you can make meaning of the texts.

It requires you to be actively engaged with the texts, to be able to provide personal responses – as well as to think more critically about the text.

You will be tested on set texts (prose and drama), as well as unseen texts (poetry)

Set texts are those that have been taught in school, while unseen texts are those that you will see for the first time during the exam.

You will be required to answer essay questions (where no passage is given), as well as passage-based questions.

The questions require you to make use of accurate details from the passage, and also to insert your response and your own personal thought/interpretation while using textual evidence.

To prepare for the exam, you will need to have developed your own tools to unpack and decipher the plot (how events are linked through cause and effect relationships within the text), character (representations of a person, with motivations as well as intellectual, moral, and emotional qualities), setting and atmosphere (the setting describes the time, place, physical details and circumstance in which a situation occurs; atmosphere refers to the mood or emotional quality of the text – which is usually created through the setting), theme (the central idea(s) in a text), and style (the writer’s purposeful use of language to achieve certain effects).

As a student of Literature, you will acknowledge the aesthetic value and enjoy the nuances of the English language.

Your perceptive and questioning mind will help you appreciate the contexts in which literary texts are written, read and understood – while you read widely and independently, from a variety of genres and genre conventions.

You will embrace ambiguity, using critical thinking based on sound reasoning with evidence, while you actively and creatively construct your understanding and interpretation of texts.

When you enjoy reading and understanding what you are reading, you will enhance your ability to distinguish the underlying meaning – and produce consistently good results for Literature.

Learning Literature – whether in lower secondary or in upper secondary – will help those who intend to go to junior college, to cope with GP (General Paper).

Literature helps us be conscious of the wide world outside, surrounding us.

It changes our perspective about things, people and events.

Literature broadens the horizon of our minds and shapes our world view.

With this, we begin to learn, ask questions, and build our intuitions and instincts.

Score an A for each of your Literature exams, with the expert guidance of outstanding Literature tutors from Tuition In Singapore.

Daily, MOE teachers themselves hire our English tutors to teach their own children.

95% of our English tuition students achieve at least 1 grade improvement in under just 3 months.

Underperforming tutors are excluded from our database.

Practice is key, when cultivating study strategies for SEC / O Level English.

Candidates will be evaluated on their ability to use standard English, including vocabulary, grammar, punctuation, and spelling, to communicate ideas effectively and engage their audience.

You are able to build your skills and familiarity with the exam format when you read widely and practise answering different types of questions in each component of the English syllabus.

Reading extensively and widely can significantly improve your understanding of the passage in Comprehension, as well as give you more ideas on what to write for your Continuous Essay.

When you are able to identify the context and meaning of unfamiliar words or concepts, it becomes easier for you to comprehend the main ideas and themes of what the examiners require from you.

By reading a variety of genres, you can become familiar with different writing styles and techniques.

This enhances your ability to analyze and interpret a text.

Therefore, it is important for you to develop a habit of reading broadly, because when you work on expanding your vocabulary, this also helps you understand texts and exam questions more accurately.

Adopting active reading strategies is also helpful.

Active reading means engaging with the text, underlining key points and making notes as you read.

In the Situational Writing component, ensure that you examine the stimulus carefully.

Tailor your response to the required purpose, audience, and context.

Address all the points, and develop them in detail using your own ideas and words.

Your ideas have to be consistently supported by relevant information from the stimulus.

Use appropriate language and tone to convey your message effectively.

In the Continuous Writing segment, ensure that you choose a topic you feel writing about.

Structure your essay in a logical, organized and coherent manner.

Stay calm and focused during the exam.

It can be easy to become distracted or feel overwhelmed by the challenging audio texts and questions, but it is important to remain composed and focused in order to perform to the best of your ability.

Learning a language takes time and consistent effort every day.

Many believe that English is a subject that cannot be studied or prepared for, but this is far from the truth.

To achieve success in the SEC / O Level English exam, it is important to start early and be consistent in your efforts.

Apart from reading widely and practising regularly, getting continuous feedback and guidance from an experienced and qualified teacher is key to developing strong language skills.

By focusing on your weaknesses, identifying areas for improvement, and developing effective reading and listening habits, you can assuredly score an A.

The O Level English language paper as a whole can be overwhelming and challenging for most students because of the sheer number of components – as as the large variety of possible question types that can be tested within each component – that you will be tested on.

It is therefore essential that you are very familiar with how to use the most appropriate tools and answering techniques for those components.

Find Singapore’s best English home tutors, so that you can become proficient in all genres of essay writing (Personal Reflective, Narrative, Persuasive, Expository, Discursive, Argumentative, Mixed-Genre), formal and informal writing, media literacy skills (for Visual Text comprehension), precision skills for comprehension answering, Planned Response, summarising information from different sources, oral presentation techniques, and engaging in discussions.

Make sure that you can definitely score your A.

Integrated Programme schools sometimes have different syllabi and teach English at a different pace than other IP schools.

There is no “official syllabus” nor “fixed syllabus in IP because the end goal for IP English is not the SEC / O Level English exam.

It is the A Level General Paper exam.

IP English is therefore vastly different – with less emphasis on drilling and practice – from from English that is taught to G3 English students who are taking the SEC / O Level exams.

English lessons at IP schools are academically rigorous, and accentuate general knowledge, debate, as well as discussions around important events that are happening in Singapore and around the world.

Tuition In Singapore is the premier Integrated Programme IP English tuition agency in Singapore.

Over 85% of our tutors are graduated tutors.

More than 20% of them have a Master’s, PhD or are NIE-trained MOE teachers.

95% of our English tuition students achieve at least 1 grade improvement in under just 3 months.

85% had consistently maintained gains of over 25 marks, no matter where their starting points were.

Underperforming tutors are excluded from our database.

The objective of IP English is to instill within each student an inquisitiveness for current affairs, debate, as well as critical analysis and knowledge of the global and Singaporean societies.

This is done by having open discussions in school, instead of the teacher simply lecturing – with specifically chosen readings to suit your readiness and interest.

Homework assignments in the form of grueling topics are structured to both interest as well as challenge you, in preparation for you to excel in A Level General Paper.

As language specialists, IP English tutors from Tuition In Singapore inculcate in students the technicalities of how to transition from a narrative-based writing style to a more discursive or argumentative type of essay.

Even high scorers in PSLE English often struggle with this transition.

You will also learn the unique requirements of IP English that involves linguistic skills, the development of balanced opinions, formulate your own complete responses to different perspectives through narratives that foster an interest in global and local socio-economic issues – which are crucial topics in the General Paper when they advance to IP Year 5 and IP Year 6, and will explore sophisticated text types and expressions.

Focused on higher ability comprehension and expression, you will be stretched further than what typical secondary school students will learn in G3 English.

Many – but not all – IP students are able to score an A for their A Level General Paper.

Start preparing for IP English from your first year in the Integrated Programme so that you have enough time to comfortably score that A.

It is achievable, and not particularly difficult to secure a distinction for GP.

The changes in the General Paper syllabus indicate an increased focus on critical reading, as well as the evaluation of the quality and validity of arguments.

To keep up with the changing demands and context of the world we live in, exam syllabi go through changes from time to time.

There are minor changes in content, and the exam format has been adjusted in several ways.

The main general themes for Paper 1 remain as society and culture, economics, politics, the arts and humanities, science and technology, the environment, as well as topics of local, regional and global significance/current affairs.

Students now are also required to enhance their reading and comprehension skills, going beyond the surface-level understanding of texts.

While it may not necessarily take more time to read the passages in Paper 2, it will take more effort to digest 3 different passages, along with their differing perspectives, tone, and purpose.

Tuition In Singapore is Singapore’s top A Level H1 General Paper tuition agency.

Each of our credible and responsible private tuition teachers have guided 95% of our students to achieve at least 1 grade improvement in under just 3 months.

85% had maintained consistent gains of over 25 marks, no matter where their starting points were.

Since 2010, we include home tutors in our team only if they have at least 2 years of successful tutoring experience, are university undergraduates, have graduated from recognized universities, are NIE-trained/MOE teachers, have Master’s, or PhD in the subject(s) they teach.

Your committed and qualified General Paper tuition teacher from Tuition In Singapore is familiar with the latest syllabus, marking schemes, and exam requirements.

We will cover a wide variety of questions, covering key issues on a wide range of topics.

For each essay theme, examples and analyses are given, to equip you with the ability to expand on your thesis statements and points, using your improved language competency and sound reasoning skills.

The MOE now places a heavier importance on comparison questions.

These question types may ask you to compare two issues/developments, and you must demonstrate the ability to connect ideas and cross-reference the information that you had researched and prepared before the A Level exams.

The comparison questions will be new to most students, so getting the answering and writing techniques right will be an important aspect to master.

GP holds a unique place in your academic journey, and understanding its significance is crucial.

While GP is categorized as an H1 subject, its importance extends far beyond its syllabus.

General Paper is often used by university admissions officers as an indicator of a student’s ability to cope with academic rigour and engage in interdisciplinary thinking – both of these are the most critical requirements for success in higher education.

Typically, if 2 students have similar A Level results, the candidate with a better GP grade is likely to be given priority for university admission.

Scoring an A in A Level GP is not easy.

Every year, only about 20% of students achieve a distinction.

Consistent, strong results in General Paper requires effective preparation from the early months of JC1 – simply because there is so much ground that needs to be covered, revised, and enriched before the A Level exam.

The success of A Level H1 General Paper students is rooted in the use of a structured and systematic approach that enhance general knowledge, answering skills, and sophisticated presentation of evidence to support their assertions.

These accomplished students also receive close guidance and support for the unique challenges of GP at every juncture when they work on General Paper components at home.

Why leave your General Paper grade to chance, when you are able to secure an A using proven, time-tested methods?

Junior college Literature tutors from Tuition In Singapore encourage critical thinking, exploration, and question – while also fostering essential A-scoring exam skills.

A common myth about A Level H2 Literature is that there is no need to study for it.

This is (unfortunately) not true.

While the content in Literature is different from say junior college Physics or A Level Math, you still need to invest a significant amount of time to understand the themes in the texts, as well as learn to pick out quotes that can effectively bring a point across.

Literature tutors from Tuition In Singapore love Literature, and we are very good at it.

JC Literature is rigorous, and there are no longer any creative writing assignments that you might have had in secondary school Literature/English.

Different teachers will be teaching different texts within the term or the year, so you need to be able to juggle multiple lectures and tutorials for Literature within a single week or month.

Many junior college students had not taken Literature when they were in Secondary 3 or Secondary 4.

Literature is the study of the human condition across time and space.

It is a fascinating window into the lives of others – real or imagined.

Transcending boundaries of gender, class, or nationality, Literature is a timeless art that allows us to contemplate how others live, their triumphs, challenges, love stories and poignant moments.

Did your classmates somehow acquire a magic formula to get a 7 in IB English?

Just like there are many students who managed to score AL1 for their PSLE English, and an A for English throughout their secondary school or IP years, it is entirely possible – and not all that difficult – to score a 7 for IB English.

Tuition in Singapore is the best International Baccalaureate IB English tuition agent in Singapore.

Over 85% of our tutors are graduated tutors.

More than 20% of them have a Master’s, PhD or are NIE-trained MOE teachers.

We have over 15,900 experienced and qualified home tutors that specialize in teaching only English.

Parents and students tell us that we are the largest and most dependable IB English tuition agency in Singapore.

The good news is that it doesn’t take long to get your vocabulary and grammar to meet the qualifying standards of getting a 7.

Learning vocabulary by reading books, magazines, and online articles lets you see sophisticated words in their proper context.

When the time comes for you to use them in your own essay, you can be confident that you will be able to correctly use your favourite newly-learned relevant words and connective phrases.

Try to use them as often as possible, and they will soon be built into your vocabulary.

Then, you can start to introduce more bite-sized advanced words, to extend your vocabulary.

When you read more, grammar will come naturally to you because you will have become used to the patterns of the English language.

Reading voraciously is the key to making it easy for you to be grammatically correct all the time.

You will also need to learn how to properly analyze why words are put together in a certain manner to create impact, and to give clear meaning to what the author intends to communicate.

The better your analysis of these words, the higher the grade you will achieve in International Baccalaureate IB English.

Without techniques-based analysis, your IB English score is likely to hover around a 4 in SL, or a 3 in HL.

If your teacher doesn’t seem to have a confident grasp of IB-style analysis, invest in a good IB English tutor early.

Your writing style is extremely important.

Writing frequently also helps a lot.

The more you read, the better you write.

Smart writing is simple writing.

Essays are intended to communicate ideas.

Therefore, the best essays are those that are written concisely and clearly.

Many students mistakenly think that putting complex words in an essay would make it look more sophisticated, and this would earn them more marks.

Don’t succumb to this myth.

Simple writing is always the best form of writing because clear messages prevent confusion.

Strip away the flowery vocabulary, because using super fancy language often does more harm than good to your essay – especially when you use words that may look impressive, but their actual meaning completely differs from what you have thought it does.

When you are able to get your message correctly and strategically across to the examiner in a straightforward and articulate way, you have a much better chance at scoring a 7.

Examiners would agree that it is a pleasure to read an essay that is well thought out, and flows with a clear structure in all the paragraphs.

Make sure your analysis always supports your points.

One of the worst mistakes is to have complex arguments but neglect the way you structure them.

This makes examiners understand some of your individual points, but feeling completely lost as to how they all connect to each other.

When they feel frustrated during the time they are reading your overall thesis, they will find it difficult to justify awarding you maximum marks.

Writing is a creative process, so it is crucial that you give yourself enough time to develop interesting ideas and to refine your work.

Plan ahead, and create the draft of your composition at the start of your creative process.

Remember that creative does not – and should not – mean haphazard, nor messy.

Then review your draft with a critical eye, and ask yourself which parts would qualify for a 7, and which should be omitted because the context might be weak or distracting.

Like any skill, writing can be honed.

Getting a 7 in IB English is very achievable, once you practice correctly and diligently.

Don’t be discouraged if your grades had always been the same, and did not improve even when you had been hardworking.

That’s only because you did not know what the exam markers were really looking for.

Let an expert teach you proven techniques of how to improve your writing, vocabulary, and grammar.

Then practice and practice until you start – and continue – getting your 7.

What are the challenges faced by English students in Singapore?

Key challenges

  • According to some scholars, English has the biggest number of words.  This is one of the reasons why learning English is quite a challenge because you need to be familiar with enough words to be able to write a high-scoring essay or to do well in Oral
  • Inability to identify instructions and key content given in the passages, during Comprehension
  • English grammar is very complicated. Unlike other languages that follow a standard composition of subject, verb, and object, the English language has different forms and structures. If you are planning on scoring well for English, you certainly must learn how to learn it from someone who has themselves scored a strong A. Otherwise, you will learn the wrong techniques – which can be difficult to unlearn
  • Problems understanding conversations and the observing crucial details portrayed in the Video, leading to difficulty in forming verbal opinions about the Video
  • Inaccurate pronunciation of words, and limited vocabulary that can be used during Oral
  • Struggling to find the correct words that describe supporting evidence, quality of content, critical thinking abilities, and points of view for Argumentative Writing
  • Creative writing techniques are weak, leading to uninteresting composition storylines, situational writing, and email writing
  • Poor time management that causes the student to have insufficient time to finish all the modules adequately
  • Inadequate ability to memorize words and their meanings for Spelling and Editing
  • Limited vocabulary skills, and therefore inability to recognize and write using a bigger range of words for Composition and Comprehension
  • Coming from schools and family/social settings where only the Mother Tongue is used, and therefore having reduced opportunities to speak, read and write in English
  • Not being able to understand the meanings in the passages in Comprehension as well as other vital sections of the English exams
  • Difficulty in recognizing the nuances in the usage of words, and therefore being confused about how to use the correct words in the various contexts

Benefits

1. Attentive guidance that is exclusively focused on your academic needs

With a Tuition In Singapore English tutor, you will have personalized English lessons that are purposefully structured so that your grades can improve in time for the major exams to assuredly score an A. Your English  tuition teacher has between 2 to over 30 years of English teaching or tutoring experience. This expert will patiently explain each of the areas that you are puzzled about, so that you gain enough clarity in order to be able to link all of the language skills and content. This is vital, because most of the exam questions now require strong application skills. If you are not able to link what you have learned and apply the information to real-life problems, you will lose valuable marks and score only borderline passes.

2. Use up-to-date English resources

To do well in English, you are expected to assimilate and recall a large amount of linguistic content that is taught across topics that include:

Vocabulary Selection 
Word Recognition 
Sentence Construction
Fill in the Blanks 
Personal Email 
Formal Email 
Narrative Essay 
Descriptive Essay
Argumentative Essay 
Personal Email 
Formal Email 
Reading Aloud 
Editing
Situational Writing
Continuous Writing
Visual Text Comprehension
Narrative Comprehension
Non-Narrative Comprehension
Oral – Planned Response
Oral – Spoken Interaction

Hire a respected and reliable tutor who can thoroughly explain all required and interlinked MOE-SEAB English skills and content using summary sheets, mind maps and practice exercises, so that you are armed with the correct knowledge and answering techniques before you enter the exam hall.

3. English can be easy to score in

Just as there are students struggling in English, there also are students who manage to score A’s. Some of these A-scoring students might have a natural flair in languages. Most of them are likely to have found excellent English tuition teachers who mentored them to success. We are quite sure that many of the students who scored distinctions at their PSLE, SEC/O Levels, A Levels and IBDP had hired English tuition teachers from Tuition In Singapore.

4. Optional passion for English

Whether or not you want to develop a genuine interest in English and turn it into a life-long hobby, you need to do well in English exams first. To get that A (or B), you first need to have an academic mentor who has scored an A at their own national exams, majored in English/closely-related English subject, and has a solid track record of helping their students succeed. Tuition In Singapore has 15,900+ home tutors who specialize in teaching only English. We have all the expert resources and resource persons you need in order to score your A (now, you see why you don’t have to aim for a B).

5. Aim for an A for English

Whether you want a career in medicine, dentistry, life sciences, engineering or in business, banking, manufacturing or public policy, scoring an A for as many subjects as possible is completely necessary. English forms a part of the aggregate score you need to progress toward your career and lifestyle goals. Make sure you score an A.

Choosing the right English tuition

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

1. Qualifications and competence in teaching English

A good English tuition teacher has a solid education. They have themselves gone through rigorous coursework, and had acquired field experience in the English language, where they had opportunities to demonstrate their mastery of – and ability to apply – the subject material that they have covered throughout their Bachelor’s, Master’s or PhD. They have accumulated materials and study tips that they will now teach you. They are able to show you exciting discoveries and exam-related knowledge during English tuition lessons.

2. Familiarity with the latest MOE syllabus and exam requirements/marking scheme

The best educators aren’t just interested in teaching – they also have an infectious passion for English, which is reflected in their enthusiasm and engagement as English tuition teachers. Education is an intensely collaborative field by nature, involving constant interplay between students, teachers, family members and tuition teachers – all of whom want the student to do better in English. Our tutors deliver invaluable insights, reminding their students of the real-world challenges they will be facing when learning new information and when answering complicated exam application questions using the current MOE syllabus. The latest exam marking scheme rewards students with superior critical thinking skills that extract relevant data, analyze possible answers, and coherently present the information within tight time constraints.

3. Quality experience in teaching students of similar levels

As seasoned educators who each have between 2 to over 30 years of English tuition teaching experience, our tutors had taught an extraordinarily wide range of students. Tuition In Singapore will show you profiles of tutors who have taught similar academic levels (eg Pri 4, Sec 1 or Sec 4 etc), as well as competence levels (eg weak G3 mastery or consistent A-scoring IP student) as the student, so that the English tutor can teach appropriate content and beneficial study methods starting from the first lesson.

4. Ability to provide additional learning resources for English

With years of successful experience in teaching students from a variety of schools, professional English tuition teachers from Tuition In Singapore can identify which are the most useful materials that their English students must currently use, based on their prevailing skills and grade aspirations. The tutor will then guide the student on the expected outcomes from practicing these worksheets/exam papers, and teach them how to construct the type of notes that are perfected by students who are able to score A’s. Our students will learn how to be innovative, think outside the box, and be able to derive novel solutions to uncommon challenges that appear in exam questions. We thoroughly familiarize our students to be prepared for a wide spectrum of question types in their exams. These methods are imperative roadmaps for how weaker or even high-scoring English students can achieve higher grades.

5. Devoted focus and committed guidance

English tuition teachers from Tuition in Singapore make efforts to understand the root issue that is causing a student to fall behind their peers, perform more poorly than they used to, or lose enthusiasm for doing well in English. We seek feedback, encourage honesty, provide ways for students to contact our tutors easily, and are attentive during lessons because we want to effectively diagnose and help our students overcome their unique obstacles, struggles, and challenges. Being empathetically adaptable and patiently flexible allows us to continuously evaluate what is working for our students – who might sometimes be affected by stress or indecision. When our students develop a growth mindset, they will be convinced that challenges and obstacles in English are not insurmountable nor overwhelming.

6. Ability to spot weaknesses quickly

Our students come from diverse backgrounds and have different skill sets and challenges. They also have heavy workloads from school for English and the other subjects that they are taking. Our tutors have sterling credentials and knowledge that can help their students overcome weak skills, refine strong ones or develop new abilities. Students’ needs change over time. With clear communication, we productively learn about our students, how they evaluate and remember information, and what challenges or motivates them most. We have robust problem-solving skills to address a wide range of impediments to learning, while keeping them organized, engaged, and on-task.

Get the best deals when hiring an English 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 English 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 than their existing rates due to the constant high demand for their services and waiting lists.
