We will contact you via WhatsApp, for tutor matching purposes
Eg 2 hours each session, twice a week, Mondays anytime from 4pm to 7pm etc
The majority of tutors in Singapore currently prefer to conduct online lessons. Thus, if you are OK with lessons being held online, it is likely that there will be more experienced tutors who apply for your assignment.
If you prefer online lessons, please enter "nil" or "online lessons", thank you.
The information is only for tutor matching purposes, and is not included in our assignment invitation to the tutors.


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.


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


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


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


Tuition In Singapore is Singapore’s leading private tuition agency in Singapore. While we try to provide clients and tutors with the closest tutor match possible, we cannot guarantee a satisfying match. We hold no responsibility or liability for problems, unhappiness, or disputes that are a result of the tutor or client.

Tuition In Singapore will not act as an arbitrator for any disagreements that arise between tutor and client.

However, Tuition In Singapore may try to mediate whenever possible and reserves all rights to blacklist any party who is at fault. Tuition In Singapore also reserves the right to terminate or deny services to any client or tutor (actual or potential) at any time.

Our fans say the nicest things

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

Jia Yi Leong

Hwa Chong Institution

Admittedly, my Chinese is better than my English. I also think in Chinese. So switching over to analyzing and expressing myself properly in English for GP has not been easy. Ms Goh is also bilingual like me, and she taught me how to translate my “Chinese thoughts” into essays that read very well. I scored an A for my GP at A Levels, and it was all because of the writing techniques that Ms Goh taught me.

Mukti Chugani

Tampines Meridian Junior College

I should have put in more effort into practicing argumentative writing when I was in secondary school, because those skills would be useful for GP Paper 1. My hope is to be able to join the civil service after I finish uni, so being able to write position papers would be important. Mr Govid used to teach at a top tuition center and he taught me how to improve in my Paper 1 and Paper 2. I am in the Law faculty now at NUS.

Catherine Chia

St Andrew’s Junior College

Uni is just a little over a year away from now. I plan to major in Econs at SMU, NTU or NUS. I heard from my seniors who are already in uni that I need to put in lots of effort into writing well, so GP would be a good way to start. My mum chose Ms Sherlyn Tang because she has a Master’s in Economics and I could find out from her if I really want to major in Econs. I scored A for GP at A Levels, and I have applied for the Econs course at SMU.

Mr Tiong


It is very difficult to find a good tutor for General Paper tuition in Singapore. Other tuition agencies showed me profiles but I could not find any suitable General Paper tutor from them. Tuition In Singapore showed us 7 profiles of excellent tutors and it was difficult to decide. Mr Kho specializes in JC General Paper tuition for students from the top JCs so we chose him. My daughter attends Eunoia Junior College, where things are competitive. Fortunately, Mr Kho has helped her get amazing grades all these months.

Ivy Yew

Nanyang Junior College

I found out the hard way that it’s not too difficult to fail GP. I did that in the first few months of JC and was completely mortified. My brother told me that I definitely need a good General Paper tutor to guide me. He found his Physics tutor from Tuition In Singapore, so I contacted them. Ms Felicia calmly went through all the basics that I needed to master in order for my grades to improve. My first C grade was very welcome. I scored a B for GP at the end of JC1, and managed an A for my A Levels.

Khai Xin Wang

Anglo Chinese Junior College

Sometimes, I do well for Paper 1 and do badly for Paper 2. On other days, I do well for Paper 2 and do terribly for Paper 1. Of course, I need to be more steady and did not know how to improve. Ms Corvene was a contract teacher at junior colleges and she taught me how to write on topics that I know, as well as am not entirely familiar with. My Paper 2 also has been doing much better now that she is giving me useful and relevant tips.

Learn effective study techniques

Our General Paper tuition teachers are familiar with the most recent MOE syllabus, current exam requirements and latest marking schemes. Each tutoring session is customized to fit your learning preferences, homework objectives, and desired exam grades.

Optimum tutor matches

We will present General Paper tuition teacher profiles to you only when they have a strong track record of helping their students’ grades improve by 10 to 30 marks.

Accurate matches for General Paper tuition

The experienced full-time tuition coordinators who are in charge of your General Paper tuition assignment hold Bachelor’s degrees from the best local universities and had attended good schools themselves. They majored in the same subject that you are seeking tuition in. Their team leaders are former MOE teachers.

Tuition In Singapore is therefore able to meticulously look for the qualities that a competent General Paper tuition teacher must possess, in order for us to consider shortlisting him/her for your General Paper tutoring assignment.

You can perform better than your competitors after effective General Paper tuition teachers guide you in the correct exam techniques and study skills

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.

JC H1 GP tuition

JC2 General Paper tuition

JC H1 GP tutors

Most junior college students agree that General Paper is one of the hardest subjects to score well in.

This H1 subject often requires that you put in as much effort as you would for a H3 subject.

Tuition In Singapore has 8,300+ experienced and qualified home tutors who specialize in teaching only General Paper.

Over 90% of our home tuition teachers are graduated tutors.

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

Underperforming tutors are excluded from our database.

Since 2010, Tuition In Singapore has been the leading General Paper tuition agency in Singapore, according to parents and students.

JC H1 GP demands a stronger command of the English language that what secondary school students had prepared for in their SEC / O Levels.

Even if they had scored an A consistently for English in primary school and secondary school, junior college students are required to demonstrate their critical thinking abilities and general knowledge (current affairs, societal trends) when writing the Paper 1 GP essay.

General Paper private tutors from Tuition In Singapore cover both content, as well as skills-based techniques that enable you to score maximum marks in Paper 1 and Paper 2.

Some themes that commonly appear in GP Paper 1 include historical, social, cultural, economic, political, philosophical, scientific, mathematical, geographical, literary topics, as well as issues of local interest and global concern.

When you read in order to enhance your general knowledge, you also need to memorize highlights of what you had read because it is necessary to support the key points that you write in your JC H1 GP essay with detailed and specific, concrete examples.

General and brief examples might give you pass marks, but never a distinction.

You should aim for a minimum of 2 to 3 high quality examples in support of your argument, for each main point that you make.

Every week or every fortnight, choose 1 to 3 topics that you are particularly interested in so that you can consistently read and research the ideas that are found in those articles.

Using the information that you have obtained, write essays that are related to these themes.

When you have a clear grasp of these examples, you can adapt and use them in more than one essay question.

Studying issues that you are passionate and motivated about also makes General Paper a lot more interesting, and gives you a better chance at scoring well.

Practicing writing GP essays is important because it allows you to experiment with different argumentative, inference, paraphrasing, and language usage techniques – as well as examine concepts and issues that are related to the themes that interest you.

Remember that is important that you organize your arguments coherently and logically – while providing relevant examples and facts that substantiate your perspectives.

Rehearse your methods to critically evaluate information, as well as the lines of reasoning that you write in the essay topics for your Paper 1.

Find authors whose writing styles and analyses you admire, so that you can draw inspiration from them when answering composition and comprehension question types.

Through cultivating in-depth analysis of issues using different points of view, you can decide if your originally-held view is plausible, or practical.

You can then either reinforce that view with additional factual supporting information, or you can use the information to construct balanced points of view – while presenting your unbiased opinions in your essay.

Very crucially, you need to analyze the questions carefully.

If you ever misinterpret the question and therefore give answers that are completely off-point, you will waste valuable marks.

You should therefore remember to highlight or underline the keywords and phrases that indicate the topic and question types.

Make sure that whatever you write in response to the words you highlight will meet the requirements of that question.

Work on your English language – particularly your grammar and sentence structure.

Make sure that the words that you choose actually mean what you think they mean, and that there are no careless mistakes.

Instead of using fancy vocabulary and trite phrases, you will be able score better when you keep your answers simple and to the point.

Many students have scored an A for the General Paper.

It is likely that they were taught by high quality JC H1 GP tutors from Tuition In Singapore.

Score your A in GP, and be accepted in the university and major of your choice.

What are the challenges faced by General Paper students in Singapore?

Main obstacles

  • Some students rely on memory work, and hope that they might be able to pass or even get an A for General Paper
  • Over-reliance on pure rote learning does not work well in General Paper because examiners are looking at a student’s ability to think critically and analytically 
  • You therefore need to develop your own original thoughts, and arrive at your own conclusions
  • General Paper also requires you to read and write more broadly than you were previously accustomed to
  • Some of your peers may not know where and how to start preparing, and find that their efforts have become unfocused, inefficient, and ineffective
  • Many students struggle to sustain an interest in daily reading. In General Paper, you will need to come up with examples to support your writing. Ideas and examples come from having good knowledge of current affairs. Students who read broadly tend to do better in GP.
  • Junior college students with weaker language skills will have to contend with finding the right words and phrases to express their ideas
  • Even students who scored an A for their O Level / SEC might write essays that contain spelling and grammar errors because the topics they are writing on in GP is very different from the writing style and requirements of secondary school English
  • Anyone who has limited vocabulary that can meet the answering requirements of GP Paper 1 and Paper will find it difficult to paraphrase well
  •  It is not enough to simply know how to write an essay or how to answer comprehension questions
  • General Paper requires you to demonstrate your knowledge of current affairs, global and local events, as well as a strong linguistic ability in your comprehension paper
  • You need to be equipped with critical and inventive thinking skills and the sophisticated use of the English language for effective communication
  • On some days, you will find that you have insufficient time and energy to keep with local and international affairs
  • Some students spent a lot of time on General Paper homework, the creation of notes, and exam preparation – but the results are not satisfactory, and the student is not able to find out what is wrong


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

With a Tuition In Singapore General Paper tutor, you will have customized General Paper lessons that are purposefully structured so that your grades can improve in time for the A Level exams to assuredly score an A. Your General Paper tuition teacher has between 2 to over 30 years of General Paper 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 General Paper resources

To do well in General Paper, you are expected to assimilate and recall a large amount of current affairs developments that are taught across topics that commonly include:

  • Historical, social, cultural, economic, political and philosophical topics

  • Mathematical and geographical topics
  • Literature and language
  • Arts and crafts
  • Topics of local interest and global concern

Hire a respected and reliable tutor who can thoroughly explain all required and interlinked MOE-SEAB General Paper 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. General Paper can be easy to score in

We are quite sure that many of the students who scored distinctions at their A Levels had hired General Paper tuition teachers from Tuition In Singapore.

4. Optional passion for General Paper

Whether or not you want to develop a genuine interest in General Paper and turn critical thinking and analysis into a life-long hobby, you need to do well in General Paper 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 General Paper subject, and has a solid track record of helping their students succeed. Tuition In Singapore has 8,300+ private home tutors who specialize in teaching only General Paper. 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).

General Paper 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 General Paper tuition

What are the 7 most important criteria to look for in a General Paper tutor?

1. Qualifications and competence in teaching General Paper

A good General Paper tuition teacher has a solid education. They have themselves gone through rigorous coursework, and had acquired field experience in learning the core topics taught in General Paper, 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 General Paper 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 General Paper, which is reflected in their enthusiasm and engagement as General Paper 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 General Paper. 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 General Paper 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 JC1 or JC2), as well as competence levels (eg weak JC1 mastery or consistent A-scoring IP student) as the student, so that the General Paper tutor can teach appropriate content and beneficial study methods starting from the first lesson.

4. Ability to provide additional learning resources for General Paper

With years of successful experience in teaching students from a variety of schools, professional General Paper tuition teachers from Tuition In Singapore can identify which are the most useful materials that their General Paper 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 General Paper students can achieve higher grades.

5. Devoted focus and committed guidance

General Paper 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 General Paper. 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.

Get the best deals when hiring a General Paper 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 General Paper tuition teacher at least a year before the important National Examinations.


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.
