Since the English syllabus in Singapore is similar across all levels of education, starting early will help you to hone your skills in English!

As such, having English Home Tuition will definitely assist you in your learning journey for English. (Still unsure about engaging an English Home Tutor? Here’s Why You Should Hire An English Tutor ASAP)

For local universities, you will be required to take a Qualifying English Test (QET) if you do not obtain a pass for GP or KI. If you happen to fail the QET, you will have to take an extra module in university. If you are planning to apply for degrees such as Law, English Literature, History, Psychology, Economics, Public Policy and Global Affairs, Sociology and others in local universities, you will need to have a good grade in General Paper or Knowledge & Inquiry. In the case that you are planning to apply for overseas universities, you will be asked to write an essay as part of your application. Therefore, having a good score in English and being able to write well will definitely ease your application to the university!

What Are The 7 Most Important Criteria to Look For in An English Tutor?

Infographic on 7 Most Important Criterias of An English Tutor

These are the 7 most important considerations before engaging an English Tutor

1. Qualifications And Abilities To Teach English

There are a range of tutors from MOE & NIE-trained teachers to part-time tutors. MOE and NIE-Trained teachers are qualified to teach students with their training, and can be specialised in teaching particular subjects if they have been trained for that subject. There are also other tutors that have accumulated years of experience in teaching English, or have scored well in their personal grades for English, which showcases their ability to teach English. Rest assured that our English tutors in MindFlex are capable of teaching the subject. We will help you in your selection process by also highlighting the relevant grades and academic achievements of our Singapore English Tutors.

2. Experience in Teaching Students Of Similar Levels

It is important to check if the tutor you are interested in engaging has experience in teaching students of similar levels. With such experience, they will then be familiar with the current syllabus and examination practices. While searching for a tutor, do ensure that the English Tutor has been teaching students of similar levels or has the capability to teach students of that level by looking at their experience and personal academic achievements. Here at MindFlex, when connecting you to English tutors, we will only recommend tutors who have experience in teaching English to students of similar levels or have the personal academic achievements to teach English.

3. Familiarity With The Most Updated Syllabus

With the numerous changes in the MOE syllabus, it is important to make sure that the English Tutor is well-aware of the content and examination practices based on the most updated syllabus. Since they are the ones supplementing the student’s learning progress, their teaching should not contradict what is taught in schools. When providing recommendations to you, we will inform you of the teaching experiences of MindFlex’s English Tutors so that you can check how familiar they are with the current syllabus.

4. Access to Additional English Learning Materials & Practices

English Tutors with years of experience will tend to have their pool of resources of content and notes that their tutees may use for writing essays. Furthermore, these Singapore English Tutors would have access to different schools’ past-year papers and assessment books, thus providing sufficient practices for the student. While recommending English Tutors to you, MindFlex will assist your selection by indicating in the tutors’ profiles if they are able to provide materials and resources for the student.

5. Passion & Dedication In Teaching

Make sure to check if the English Tutor you have chosen is passionate and dedicated in teaching your child. Without devotion and commitment, they will not be able to understand your child‘s learning style and design a suitable learning schedule for your child. Aside from this, be sure to check if the tutor can commit to the arranged timing for the tuition, and if he/she is willing to follow your child through higher levels of education. Tuition is not just about teaching a particular subject, but also about building a trusted relationship between the child and the tutor to facilitate the learning process. When your child feels comfortable with the tutor, he/she will then be more engaged during the tuition and have a better learning experience. MindFlex makes it a special point to facilitate communication between you and the tutor to ensure that both of you have come to an agreement of expectations before confirming the tuition arrangements.

6. Ability to Spot Weaknesses And Drill Basic Skills Such As Grammar And Vocabulary

English is all about the basics and foundations. With good foundational skills in Grammar and Vocabulary, one can then excel in English. Top Singapore English Tutors will be able to spot any weaknesses of students in these basic skills, and drill them in these skills to ensure that they will be proficient in English for the writing, listening, reading and speaking components of their school examinations. English Tutors recommended by MindFlex are experienced and capable of spotting weaknesses in students’ English. They are also proficient in helping students to work on these weaknesses so as to improve their English within short periods of time.

7. Testimonials & Recommendations From Previous Tutees

Top English Tutors in Singapore will naturally have testimonials and recommendations from previous tutees. To understand the strengths of these tutors, it is best for you to check if they have been recommended or have any testimonials from parents and students. Usually, these Singapore English Tutors will have a strong testimonial base, which can reassure you of their capability and that they are qualified enough to teach your child. MindFlex will include testimonials and indicate whether tutors have received good feedback from our clients, so that you can have an easy experience selecting a safe and capable English Tutor for your child.

He would use Chinese to help my boy with English words. Thank you for helping him improve

Ms Sara Wong, Mum of JC2 General Paper Student
(C to A)

I am from Korea, and English is not my main language! For my work, I was asked to move to Singapore, but I realised that it was so difficult to speak with people because they mainly speak in English. Luckily, I found MindFlex, which helped to connect me with my tutor, Mr. Edward. Thank you for your patience in helping me improve & making lessons so interesting for me!

Ms Eun Ae, Adult Conversational English Student
(Improved Proficiency of English)

To MindFlex, I am so grateful that I chose to request a tutor from you! Mr Derrick was very engaging during his English lessons and my daughter is now more interested in English. We have decided to continue with him for my daughter’s English tuition for Secondary 2 as well. My daughter’s jump in grades within 6 months has really surprised both of us. Thank you again!
