Hence, here at MindFlex, as Singapore’s #1 IP Tuition Agency, we pride ourselves as the leading provider of IP Tutors who are all experienced and qualified to aid IP students in their IP journey, helping them achieve stellar grades in their IP examinations. With over 3,000 dedicated IP Tutors, finding a perfect tutor has never been this easy!

We are home to over 3,000 Highly Experienced and Qualified IP Tutors with a wide variety of different qualifications, credentials and experience levels. As such, we are sure that we can find an IP Tutor that fits your requirements! With the help of our Top IP Tutors, students can be rest assured that they have a pillar of support as they take on the rigorous IP Curriculum.

IP Tuition in Singapore is increasingly popular, with the main types being Private 1-to-1 Tuition, Online Tuition and Group Tuition. Beyond just choosing your IP Tuition based on its rates, it is also important to take into consideration factors such as class size and the location of the tuition. Small class sizes are a popular option as it provides ample student-teacher interaction. The IP Tutor will also be able to cater the lesson plans to target the student’s learning pace and weaknesses. Additionally, it might also be wiser to pick an IP Tuition that is at a convenient location so as to minimise travelling time to and fro lessons. Here at MindFlex, we specialise in Private 1-to-1 IP Home Tuition, so that students can enjoy high quality lessons that are personalised towards their weaknesses, at the safety and convenience of their own homes.

The Integrated Programme is a highly rigorous programme that allows students to bypass the O Level Examinations. As a route that is reserved for the top 10% of PSLE takers, it goes without saying that the curriculum is intense and difficult. Moreover, the IP Curriculum involves components that may be unfamiliar to students, such as Verbal Presentations and the Bicultural Studies Programme. As such, students may be rather overwhelmed by the rigorous IP Curriculum. As such, engaging a Top IP Tutor can be helpful to students. Firstly, IP Tuition lessons serve as an avenue for students to clarify their doubts in a private environment. This makes it easier for students to speak up during lessons, especially students who are more quiet or timid by nature. Secondly, IP Tuition can help to consolidate students’ learning on a regular basis, reinforcing the concepts learnt in school and allowing students time to properly digest the information. As such, IP Tuition can be extremely beneficial for students, and can help students to be better prepared for their IP Examinations.

Given how intensive the IP curriculum is, students might lose track of their progress or find it hard to keep up with the curriculum in school. Furthermore, given how the IP syllabus does not require students to take any national examinations at the end of the 4 years, it becomes more important that students keep themselves accountable and stay consistent in their learning in order to be on par with their peers taking the O Levels. Therefore, MindFlex recommends engaging an IP Tutor in Singapore to keep up with the demands of the IP curriculum. Through IP Tuition, students will receive extra guidance in their learning, allowing students to learn at their own pace instead of struggling to keep up with the fast pace of IP lessons in school.

In conclusion, getting a MindFlex IP Tutor in Singapore is crucial in ensuring that students get the best possible assistance in their competitive 4-year IP journey. All our IP Tutors have years of academic and teaching experience, and are well-equipped with the relevant skills, materials and content to guide students in their IP subjects. Furthermore, all IP Tutors will plan their lessons in accordance with the MOE syllabus, so students can be more at ease knowing that their tuition lessons can definitely supplement and enrich the student’s learning.

Benefits of Hiring IP Tuition

What Are The Benefits of Engaging IP Home Tutors through MindFlex?

1. Effective Tuition Aimed At Instilling Good Studying Habits

As compared to students in the express stream, IP students have to study comparably more difficult topics while also taking up co-curricular activities and additional learning programmes. Having to juggle these many time-consuming activities will limit the amount of time IP students have to study. Hence, it is important to have an IP Tutor who is experienced with the unique syllabus and able to help students to instill good studying habits so that students can efficiently make use of their time to complete their school work and prepare for any upcoming school tests.

2. Expert Consultation Catered To Help Students Stay Ahead Of Curriculum

The IP curriculum can be very difficult to master, given the amount of content and advanced concepts involved. Engaging the best IP home tuition in Singapore can ensure that your child can consult the tutor when he/she has any doubts or questions about the content. Furthermore, the tutor can prepare a learning schedule for the student such that the student will be learning ahead of the curriculum, thus ensuring that he/she is well-prepared for classes and school examinations.

3. Assistance With Difficult Assignments And Preparation For School Tests

IP students can often struggle over difficult assignments that contribute to their final grade for the year. With IP tuition, students can then direct their questions to the tutor and score better in their assignments. Furthermore, the IP home tutor can help to prepare them for their school tests, including weekly quizzes and common tests, which often require students to have a good grasp of concepts taught to answer tricky questions.

4. Confidence Boost To Speak Up In Class

As compared to other countries’ education systems, Singapore’s education system is weaker in motivating students to speak up during classes and clarify their doubts. Engaging the best IP home tuition in Singapore not only helps students to be more confident in their knowledge of the IP content but also trains students to learn to raise questions and think critically. This is an important soft skill that is highly valued globally, albeit in the business or personal world. By learning to ask questions and speak up in class during the tuition, students will be more confident to do so in class as well, gaining more favour and opportunities in their secondary school.

5. Preparation For Content Taught In Higher Educational Levels Such As A-Levels And IB

For students enrolled in the Integrated Programme, they are not required to take O levels, which can be both a good and bad thing. It is good because students would not have to go through a stressful period of time to compete with all the O level students in Singapore, but it can be bad if students are not well prepared for their future national examinations. To ensure that students are not only left with good PSLE results, it is important to prepare students for the content taught in higher education levels so that they may score well for A levels or IB exams.

6. Advice For Future Education Path

Depending on the student’s performance and dreams, the IP home tutor can offer advice and realistic insights of the future education path that the student should take, including future subject combinations or even taking O levels. Furthermore, they can help in giving tips to prepare students in achieving their future goals and dreams.

Making well-informed decisions

Why is Getting IP Tutors So Important?

Students of this age range are going through a tough journey of seeking their personal identity and finding a balance between their personal and academic lives. With an intense IP curriculum, this can potentially overwhelm your child in their learning progress. Engaging IP Home Tuition in Singapore will therefore help your child to ease his academic journey in school and reduce the struggles they face in their personal and academic lives.

Being enrolled in the IP syllabus would mean that your child will be skipping O levels, thus making his/her A level performance more critical. This is because your child will be left with a PSLE certificate if he/she performs poorly for the one-time A level or IB national exams. Hence, make sure that your child is well prepared for the A level content by starting early and engaging an IP home tutor if your child is facing troubles in his/her studies!

Schools offering IP syllabus often allow students to take up additional learning programmes such as Bicultural Studies Programme, Gifted Education Programme, Knowledge Skills Programme, which can add on to the study load that your child has. While taking on additional learning programmes is beneficial, make sure that your child is able to cope with his/her current studies and able to grasp the concepts taught. Otherwise, it is important to engage an IP Tutor so that they would not be lagging behind in class and in the IP curriculum.

Since IP students are not required to take O levels, the topics taught in IP Y3 and Y4 are meant to prepare students for A levels or IB. Hence, mastering these concepts and topics early is important so as to ease the learning journey of your child in JC, where they only have 2 years to master all the subjects before their national examinations.

An experienced IP Tutor can also serve as a mentor for your child. Since the IP Tutor has taught students from different IP schools and is well-versed with the Singapore education system, he/she will be able to offer insights and advice to your child so that your child may have an easier path in achieving their future goals and dreams.

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

Infographic on 7 Most Important Criterias of An IP Tutor

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

1. Qualifications And Capability In Teaching

You may be aware that in finding a private home tutor, there are 3 types of tutors, which are MOE & NIE trained school teachers, Full-Time tutors and Part-Time tutors. While all MOE & NIE trained teachers are qualified to teach, some of the Full-Time and Part-Time tutors have qualifications to teach as well. To check if they are capable of teaching, you can also look at their educational experience, years of teaching experience and personal academic grades.

In the profiles of tutors MindFlex sends to you, we will be sure to include the tutors’ qualifications, years of experience and personal academic grades so that you may easily assess the tutors during your selection.

2. Experience In Teaching IP Students

IP syllabus is one of the more unique curriculums in Singapore and can differ greatly from the conventional secondary school syllabus. Hence, it will be good to check if tutors have taught IP students previously, and have an idea of the schools that his/her previous and current students study in. This way, you can make sure that the tutor is well-versed with the content and examination practices of the IP school syllabus. Here at MindFlex, we make sure to only shortlist tutors who have taught IP students previously or have exemplary results in the relevant subjects.

3. Familiarity With IP Syllabus From Student’s School

Even among the few schools that offer IP, there are differences in the content and examination practices of the syllabus for individual schools. For tutors who have taught students in the same IP school as your child, they would be familiar with the syllabus for the subjects he/she is experienced in teaching. However, since the syllabus can be relatively unique, it will be good to discuss with the tutor if he can teach the topics taught in the syllabus of your child’s school. MindFlex is sure to include if the IP tutor is familiar with the latest syllabus in the profiles of shortlisted tutors. However, since IP is a unique curriculum that faces changes, it will be good to give your tutor a copy of the syllabus outline and ensure that he/she is capable of teaching the topics included before confirming any tuition arrangements.

More information about the specific IP schools and their syllabuses can be found at these links: Catholic High School, Cedar Girls’ Secondary School, CHIJ St. Nicholas Girls’ School, Dunman High School, Hwa Chong Institution, Nanyang Girls’ High School, National Junior College, Raffles Girls’ School (Secondary), Raffles Institution (Secondary), River Valley High School, Singapore Chinese Girls’ School, Temasek Junior College, Victoria School, Anglo-Chinese School (Independent), Methodist Girls’ School, St Joseph’s Institution, NUS High School of Mathematics and Science

4. Ability To Help Students Keep Up With School Curriculum

Under the IP curriculum, students can be overwhelmed with the intense workload and fast lesson pace. To do well in school, they will have to perform well in their assignments and school tests. Hence, expert IP home tutors can assist your child in tackling difficult questions in their assignments and prepare for their school tests, thus ensuring that your child is performing well and not lagging behind in their school curriculum. Depending on your needs, some tutors can also consolidate materials that are relevant to your child’s school curriculum and provide additional practices for your child.

MindFlex’s IP Tutors are experienced and capable of designing a learning schedule for their students to ensure they are keeping up and even staying ahead of the school curriculum. In the case that they are able to provide additional learning materials consolidated from external resources and school notes, we will include that in the profiles of shortlisted tutors sent to you. If you would like the tutor to also help out with your child’s schoolwork, MindFlex encourages you to have an interview with the tutor so that both sides have a common understanding of expectations before confirming the tuition arrangements.

5. Training Students To Become A Global Citizen With Critical Thinking Skills

To succeed in life, simply mastering the content in the school syllabus is not sufficient. Hence, many parents search for external classes to help their children in becoming a critical thinker whilst building up knowledge in global and local issues. Furthermore, since the education and business world are looking for people who have the willingness to speak up, training your child in this aspect would surely aid your child in applying for their dream university and job in the future. Our MindFlex IP Tutors are experienced and capable of helping students in mastering their subject content, and can also assist them in building critical thinking skills when assessing information from various sources. Furthermore, with sufficient confidence in the subject and guidance from the tutor in asking the right questions, students will naturally be more willing to speak up in class.

6. Ability To Work On Student’s Weaknesses In Specific Subjects

It is normal that your child has his/her weaknesses in any subject. However, it is important that you find an IP home Tutor that is capable of spotting the weaknesses of your child and designing a special learning schedule that caters to his/her learning style and needs. This way, your child will not waste time that could be used on working on his/her weaknesses.

MindFlex has a huge pool of IP tutors that have been teaching IP students with different learning styles and weaknesses, thus they are familiar with the common problems that they face with the content taught in the IP syllabus. With that, they can easily pick out the weaknesses of your child and ensure that their tuition classes are focused on helping your child to work on their weaknesses, thus helping your child improve in the subject within a short period of time.

7. Testimonials From Previous Students

Top IP Tutors with years of experience teaching IP students will have a strong testimonial base, proving their abilities in teaching and helping students improve in the subject. Through these testimonials and recommendations from previous students, you can also gain insights into the strengths of these tutors and gauge if they are safe to engage and the right fit for your child.

Testimonials About Our IP Home Tuition

 

Being brought up in a Chinese family, my English is not very proficient. I am grateful to MindFlex for helping me find a tutor that matched my budget. The tutor is very experienced and bilingual, and he would use Chinese words to translate English vocabulary that I did not understand. He also taught me comprehension and essay writing skills, and helped me score B in my EOY exams this year! Thank you MindFlex!

Ms Zhuang Wei Wei, IP Y2 Language Arts Student
(D to B) 

While I am good with Physical Geography, I often fail in questions that involve topics from Human Geography. Seeing MindFlex’s affordable charges for a part-time tutor, I decided to try my luck and find an IP Geography tutor. I am really grateful for Ms Cheryl, who is really good at figuring out why I could not perform in the Human Geography questions, and helped me to score A and a high overall GPA for my EOYs!

My son was failing his Maths 2 exams since last year, and explained that it was because of his CCA commitments. However, he was still doing badly this year after handing over to his juniors, so we decided to find him a Maths tutor. MindFlex and Mr Oliver were very good in their service and lessons respectively. Thank you for helping my son score an A.

Thank you MindFlex for helping my son find a Biology tutor! I really appreciate your clear and detailed explanations, and for your meticulous help with our request. My son has improved tremendously with Ms Jeanette’s tuition classes, and managed to get A* for his EOY! Will surely recommend you to my friends if their children need tuition 🙂
