Free Request For Chemistry Tuition

  

1. Rising Popularity for Chemistry Tuition in Singapore

Over recent years in Singapore, Chemistry Tuition has skyrocketed to be one of the most highly requested subjects for tuition. Chemistry has become a core subject that students of different levels of education have to learn. In most cases, at Secondary School Level, Chemistry is a compulsory Science subject that is paired with either Physics and/or Biology, which will form their Science combination for O & N Levels. At Junior College Level, Chemistry is divided into either H1/H2, where students are to complete the syllabus within 2 years. At University Level, Chemistry is a common fundamental module required to enter most University courses, such as Medicine, Engineering, Nursing, etc. 

With different MOE syllabuses and subject combinations offered by schools, parents usually lack the expertise to assist their children through their work. Hence, many parents in Singapore have opted for Chemistry Tuition instead. CNA has reported that Singapore’s annual tuition industry is approximated to exceed $1 billion. This is due to multiple reasons, with the main one being the heavy emphasis on grades. As Singapore is known to be education-oriented, education from Primary to Secondary Levels is compulsory for all Singaporeans. Hence, it is not surprising to see such a prominent growth in Singapore’s demand for Chemistry Tuition. Holding a major market share of the Tuition Industry in Singapore, we receive an estimated number of 150 requests for Chemistry tuition per month. 

2. What Is The Best Chemistry Tuition in Singapore Available?

In this day and age, parents in Singapore worry about ‘The Best Chemistry Tuition Available’  more than whether they “Should Send Their Child For Science Tuition?”. As of 2020, it is reported that there are a total of 942 Tuition and Enrichment Centres registered with MOE, where the number is expected to increase as the industry grows. However, how do parents choose the most reliable and trustworthy tutor? With such an array of tuition options at their feet, it is no wonder that parents face this difficulty. To address this issue, MindFlex has compiled a list of 26 Top Chemistry Tuition Options in Singapore, across a variety of tuition categories. 

Science Tuition in Singapore can be generally categorised into 3 broad options:

1) Group Tuition
– Tuition & Enrichment Centre Establishments
– Private Tutors’ Group Classes
2) Online Tuition
3) 1-1 Private Home Tuition

3. Chemistry Tuition & Enrichment Centres

3.1. Advantages

Tuition & Enrichment Centres are educational establishments which can be found all over Singapore. These centres mostly hold group tuition lessons between 2 to 30 students per class. Popular examples include Mindstretcher, AGrader Learning Centre and The Learning Lab. These are some of the main advantages which parents can take into consideration when choosing whether to enrol in a tuition centre.

1. Cheaper Fees

  • In comparison to 1-1 tutoring, Tuition Centres price their services at a lower rate due to their high intake of students
  • High tuition rates do not promise quality results
  • Well-known and widely acknowledged Tuition Centres such as Miracle Learning Centre offer Chemistry Tuition ranging from $55 – $85/lesson

2. Supplementary Materials and Notes

  • Majority of Chemistry Tuition Centres provide their own compiled materials and notes from top local schools 
  • Materials designed outside the MOE Chemistry Syllabus can help to promote a student’s creative thinking

3. Wide Spread of Locations 

  • Many Tuition Centres have branches located island-wide, allowing ease of travel to and from the centre
  • Accessible locations and flexible time-slots 

4. Assured Quality of Chemistry Tutors 

  • To be a MOE registered Tuition Centre, they are required to produce academic qualifications that meet a certain merit
  • Tuition Centres hold interviews to ensure consistency in terms of their teaching quality

5. Free or Discounted Trial Lessons

  • Trial lessons will help access the effectiveness of the tuition 
  • During trial lessons, parents will be able to access whether their child is comfortable with the new surroundings
Experiments are a part of Science tuition in Singapore

Some Science tuition centres in Singapore have included experiments as part of their curriculum to make lessons fun for your child!

3.2. Main Considerations


1. Reliability of The Tuition Centre 

  • In Singapore, all Educational Institutes and Centres, having more than 10 students, are required to be registered with MOE.
  • Parents are urged to review the trustworthiness of the centre, before engaging them.

2. Make-Up Lessons & Commitment Terms 

  • It is common for students to miss or cancel classes due to personal or health issues.
  • However, each tuition centres has its own set of terms and regulations regarding this issue.
  • Before engaging a Centre, parents should confirm if the Tuition Centre allows for any Make-Up Lessons.
  • Additionally, most Tuition Centres require a minimum notice period before the termination of any class, varying from weeks to months, depending on the centre’s commitment regulations. 

3. Class Size

  • Each centre offers different class sizes, from small classes of 2-3 class students to large classes of 20 students.
  • In small classes, lessons are more individualised, with more time and attention being placed on each student. 
  • In a larger class, lessons are more generalised, reducing the amount of attention each student gets. It is also more likely for the student to lose focus due to the higher amount of distractions. 

4. Tuition Centre’s Track Record

  • Testimonials and reviews are the most common way to determine if the Tuition Centre is effective, as they are personal reviews from past students and parents. 
  • Parents are also encouraged to check the credibility of Tuition Centres who have a positive track record. Although unlikely, there is a possibility that the reviews are manufactured by the centre themselves. 

5. Tutor’s Ability to Connect with Students 

  • A good tutor should be able to connect with the student, build trust between them, allowing them to work more productively. 
  • Parents should prioritise finding a tutor that is compatible with the student’s learning style and behaviour, rather than sourcing for the most expensive and highly rated. 

3.3. Recommendations

After extensive research, MindFlex has compiled a list of Tuition Centres that offer Chemistry Tuition, from the websites of centres in Singapore. The list of recommendations are divided into 2 main categories:

Category 1: Secondary / IP Chemistry (10 options)
Category 2: JC / IB Chemistry (10 options)

Amongst the centres suggested, some offer classes for other levels i.e. Secondary and JC Chemistry, and other subjects apart from Chemistry.

4. Chemistry Private Tutors’ Group Classes

Contrasting Tuition Centres, Private Tuition held in small groups are popular in Singapore as well. Private Group Tuition is usually taught by educators who specialise in the subject and tend to charge their services at a higher rate. 

4.1 Advantages

1. 1-1/Small Classes

  • Private classes prioritise having more attention and assistance, hence classes are usually of smaller sizes of 2-3 students.
  • By doing so, the tutor is better able to focus well on each student’s academic requirements.

2. Better Communication Flow

  • Outside tuition hours, parents and students are able to communicate directly with the private tutor.
  • Some tutors also permit students to consult them via Whatsapp after lessons.

3. More Dedicated Tutors 

  • Private tutors usually rely on their students’ results as a way to showcase their testimonies. 
  • Hence, these tutors will spend more time and effort to ensure that the students’ grades improve. 

4.2. Main Considerations

1. Reliability of Tutor 

  • Without having the security of Tuition Centres, parents should ensure that private tutors are qualified with certain teaching credentials before enrolling their children. 
  • At the same time, parents should request for past parents/students’ testimonials to ensure that the tutor’s marketed student grades are reliable. 

2. Lesson Flexibilities & Styles 

  • Different tutors have their individual teaching principles and styles that they practise by. 
  • Parents should enrol their children with a tutor who is able to teach accordingly with the student’s learning style and behaviour. 
  • Private tutors are usually more flexible regarding their class schedules.
  • Some tutors allow their students to switch their timeslots around, while others prefer sticking to a particular timeslot of the week. 

3. Rates & Enrolment Duration

  • With private tutors, parents should make a valid judgement on the prices each charge. 
  • There are cases where well-recognised tutors price their rates at a premium for their elite teaching services. 
  • At the same time, highly sought after tutors go hand-in-hand with a longer enrolment waiting time.

5. Online Chemistry Tuition in Singapore

Currently, Online Tuition for Chemistry has become more apparent in Singapore. Due to the recent global epidemic, Covid-19, according to Straits Times, many Education Centres in Singapore have turned to online lessons instead. In comparison to traditional physical lessons, online tuition only requires a laptop and internet connection, making lessons hassle-free and convenient. This allows students to have their lessons at any location preferred, with some of the main platforms used being Skype, GoogleMeets, Discord, Microsoft Teams, etc. 

Online Lessons as part of Science tuition

Online Lessons can enable your children to ask their tutor Science questions in real time, from the comforts of your home!

5.1. Advantages

1. Reduces Travelling Distance 

  • Location and the distance to travel has always been a big factor when searching for a tutor. 
  • With a stable Wi-Fi connection, students are able to take lessons from tutors, be it from any location in Singapore or worldwide. 

2. Cheaper Tuition Rates

  • As tutors do not need to travel down to the students’ house to have lessons, vice versa. It has allowed help reduced expenditures such as transportation, etc. 
  • With that, online lessons are typically charged at a lower rate. 

3. Ease of Learning 

  • With the various online video-call platforms used, lessons can now be recorded with the incorporated features available. 
  • This allows the student to refer to the recording in the future to clarify any doubts, or should they have missed the lesson. 

5.2. Main Considerations

1. Strong Wi-Fi Connection 

  • While most of us have the luxury of having a stable Wi-Fi connection, there are others who are less privileged. 
  • They might experience bad internet connection, causing their video-calls to delay and not function properly. 

2. Lesson Efficacy 

  • However, with online lessons, some parents are concerned about how effective lessons will be for the students’ learning. 
  • Most lessons are able to be conducted as to how it was in real-life, however certain lesson components such as Hands-On learning and demonstrations will not be able to be conducted.

3. Establishing Student-Tutor Bond

  • As there is a significant decrease in physical interactions, it is harder for tutors and students to connect, especially if it is their first lesson together. 
  • In some situations, the tutor will not able to grasp the students’ attention, causing the lesson to be unproductive.

6. 1-to-1 Private Chemistry Home Tuition

Apart from a Private Group Tuition, engaging a Private Home Tutor is another popular alternative. If you have been considering hiring a private home tutor, you should read the following article for 5 Pieces of Advice When Selecting A Tutor.

6.1. Advantages

1. More Personalised Approach

  • Home Tuitions are usually limited to only 1 student per class.
  • This allows the tutor to focus only on the student, providing more concentrated and direct feedback. 
  • By doing so, the tutor is able to adjust his/her lessons to suit the individual needs of the student. 

2. Flexible Timings

  • With Home Tuition, scheduling classes are usually more flexible with more availability to choose from. 
  • Adding on, scheduling more lessons and make-up lessons are easier as it only depends on the tutor’s personal schedule 
  • This allows the student to arrange for more lessons as needed. 

3. Increased Confidence & Self-Esteem

  • With 1-to-1 tuition, the student will be less afraid to make mistakes due to the private learning environment. 
  • The student will be more encouraged to try, fail and grow in a safe learning space, hence, boosting their confidence slowly. 

4. Reduced Number of Distractions

  • In 1-to-1 tuition, the lesson is conducted at either the student or the tutor’s house. 
  • This limits the number of distractions as compared to a Tuition Centre, such as other students, unfamiliar learning environment, etc. 
  • This builds a better educational setting, maximising the student’s learning within those short hours of lessons. 
1 to 1 Science Tuition in Singapore may be the most effective option for children who require individualized attention

1-1 Home Tuition may be more effective for children who need individualised attention.

6.2. Main Considerations

1. Tutoring Rates

  • Typically, Private Chemistry Home Tutors charge from a variety of rates, depending on their qualifications and experience.
  • These rates can go as low as $25 per hour to be as high as $120 per hour.
  • Check out this link, to understand more about Home Tutoring Rates.

2. Tutor’s Qualifications 

  • Different types of tutors require different types of qualifications. An Ex/Current MOE Teacher requires an NIE Certificate in Education to teach in Singapore MOE schools. 
  • Hence, parents should make sure to request the necessary certificates to confirm if they are qualified to teach, before engaging them. 
  • At the same time, it is good to engage a tutor who has previous experience in that subject, such as teaching past students or personally learning it in school. 

3. Tutor’s Students Currently

  • Apart from having a good track record from past students, it is important to check on the tutor’s current group of students. 
  • It is more beneficial to engage tutors who are currently tutoring other students in the same subject you are looking for.
  • This is because they are more likely to be up-to-date with the current school syllabus and exam formats.
