1. The High Popularity of Maths Tuition in Singapore

Maths Tuition has been highly sought after in Singapore, where children as young as preschoolers are enrolled into classes to prepare them for what is to come when they begin their Primary School Journey. This begs the question – Why do parents feel the need for Maths Tuition when their child has barely learnt the basics? Maths is a compulsory subject at every level from Primary 1 up to Junior College, with increasing levels of difficulties and varying topics covered. At the Primary Level, many have mentioned that Maths seems to be the hardest subject to score at least a C in. After proceeding on to the Secondary Level, students are exposed to 2 types of Maths (Additional Maths, Elementary Maths), with an end goal of nailing the O & N Level Exams. After which, at the Junior College Level, students are to opt for either H1/H2 Maths, where they have to master the concepts within a very limited 2 years. 

Going back to the question, as much as parents want their children to excel in Maths by enrolling them in Maths Tuition at a young age, they are not equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge or the freedom of time to mentor them. As a result, many choose to hire Maths Tutors instead. TodayOnline has reported that Singapore’s Tuition Industry stands at S$1.4 billion, growing from S$1.1 billion in 2012/13. Coupled with Singapore’s Highly Competitive School System which consistently leads international rankings, this much growth is foreseeable. As one of the major players in Singapore’s Tuition Industry, we receive about 200 requests for Maths Tuition on a monthly basis. 

2. What is the Best Maths Tuition in Singapore Available?

In the present circumstances, the debatable question that puts parents’ in a dilemma concerns “What is the best available maths tuition” more than whether they should engage a Maths Tutor. Currently, there are 942 Tuition and Enrichment in Singapore registered and listed under MOE. This is where the challenge comes in – choosing the most suitable and reliable Maths Tutor. Since parents’ are working with such a large pool of options, choosing a Maths Tutor becomes more complex and troublesome.

3. Maths Tuition & Enrichment Centres

3.1. Advantages

Tuition & Enrichment Centres are educational institutions that work alongside schools, taking up between 2 to 20 students usually per class. Some well-known centres include Aspire Hub, EduKate, Adam Khoo Learning Centre, and True Learning Centre. Here are some advantages that parents can keep in mind while deciding whether to enroll in Tuition Centres.

1. Cheaper Fees

  • Rates do not equate to results. Distinguished and widely recognised centres such as True Learning Centre offers Maths Tuition ranging from $150 – $180/4 lessons.

2. Ability To Learn From One Another

    Starting Maths Tuition early with tuition centres or home tutors will help create a strong Maths foundation.

3.2. Main Considerations

1. Qualifications of The Tuition Centre

  • It is compulsory for Educational Institutions exceeding 10 students to be registered with MOE.
  • Verify that the tutors in the Tuition Centre have their credentials vetted and approved.
  • It is essential that parents make their own efforts in doing their own research about every Tuition Centre considered, just to reaffirm its credibility.

2. Class Size

  • Different Centres have different class sizes. 
  • With smaller classes, students will receive more individual attention which increases productivity and promotes a more conducive environment.
  • With larger classes, students tend to lose focus more easily as the teacher has to tend to one student at a time, which may result in frustration.

3. Arranging Make-Up Lessons And Commitment Period

  • One issue frequently faced by any tuition centre is the cancellation and rearrangement of classes due to several reasons including health issues.
  • It is important for parents to check the terms and conditions of the tuition centre to avoid any unnecessary dispute.
  • Tuition centres generally have a minimum notice period which varies from weeks to months before any termination of classes. 
  • To avoid any disappointment or having to pay for lessons you do not want to continue, read the centre’s terms for the commitment period carefully.

4. Teaching Style

  • Every Tuition Centre has its own personalized teaching style.
  • It is important to note the type of learning style which works best for your child – visual, auditory, or kinaesthetic.
  • For visual learners, drawn explanations such as infographics would be ideal
  • For auditory learners, a tutor who is able to verbalise and explain concepts clearly would be best suited.
  • For kinaesthetic learners, hands-on activities are recommended
  • An all-rounded tuition centre usually has tutors who are able to cater to all three types.

5. Track Record of Tuition Centre

  • It is crucial to be informed about accurate testimonials and results produced by the tuition centre, as what you see on paper may just be for show. 
  • Testimonials are a great way to assess how effectively a tuition centre produces results as these are the attributes that parents & students are satisfied with.
  • They increase the credibility of the tuition centre due to its unbiased nature.

6. Compatibility

  • No matter how well-established a tuition centre is, there will not be any fruits of labour if the interests and objectives of the student and the centre are not aligned.
  • A good and suitable centre is one whose tutors understands, creates a customized teaching style, and targets the child’s area of need.
  • The ability to pinpoint the exact point of contention and address it accordingly is what separates the wheat from the chaff when it comes to tuition.

3.3. Recommendations

4. Maths Private Tutor’s Group Classes

Similar to Tuition Centres, there are group tuitions available in a private setting. These groups tend to be smaller than that of the centres’, more often with highly experienced, and elite individuals who charge a more premium rate. 

4.1. Advantages

1. Smaller Group Settings

  • Private group tuition usually offers lessons that go by smaller groups (often 2-4 students)
  • This ensures the maximum attention that a teacher can give to his students and that no questions are missed out.
  • This also allows the tutor to have greater opportunities to understand their students and each of their needs.

2. Direct Line to Tutor

  • Students are given the tutor’s personal number in most cases.
  • A direct line to their tutor allows communication between the students and their tutor after lesson hours (provided approved by a tutor)
  • Unlike tuition centres, students will not have to wait for the next lesson to clear any doubts, preventing a build-up of questions and misconceptions.

3. More Flexible Availabilities

  • More frequent time slots will be available for students to choose from as private group tutors generally have lesser students to cater to.
  • It is also possible that students can schedule extra lessons at their convenience, with or without other students. (usually the latter)

 

4.2. Main Considerations

1. Ensure the Credibility of Your Maths Tutor

  • Since private group tutors do not get vetted by a centre, getting their credentials and checking them is a vital step before enrolment. 
  • It would be good if the tutors provide reliable references for parents to check against.

2. Refer to Previous Testimonials/Reviews

  • As with any other tuition centre, it is crucial to look into the testimonials and reviews of the private group tutor. 
  • These testimonials are unbiased, and many parents are quick to post about the private group tutor if they were to have bad experiences with them. 
  • This is a good gauge as the second step in assessing the tutor’s compatibility, after vetting their credentials

3. Cost and Schedule 

  • Since private group tutors tend to charge higher rates, it is important to be aware and make a judgement call on whether the cost is reasonable.
  • When dealing with a large amount of money, the last thing any parent would want is to be paying for less than what they expect.

4. Compatibility 

  • Regardless of the type of tuition opted for, compatibility is one of the constants that students must look out for. 
  • In order to maximize the student’s capability, a tutor’s teaching style must be aligned with the student’s learning style. 
  • This plays a part in determining the amount of output and the effectiveness of the tutor.

5. Online Maths Tuition in Singapore

Online Maths Tuition

Online Maths Tuition has proven to be a growing and popular option amongst parents and students in the past 2 years.


Alternatively, Maths Tuition can be conducted online. In the past few months, Online Tutoring has been a growing trend which is expected to stay. Alongside the brick-and-motor centres, students will be able to choose between the options, depending on which suits their schedule and preferences the most. With a laptop, students will be able to learn from the comfort of their homes. Despite the initial stigma against Online Tuition, many have become accustomed to this practice amidst the COVID period. Some widely used online platforms include Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and Skype. While Online tutoring seems to be ideal for many with the lack of need to travel and convenience, it holds its own set of disadvantages just like any other type of tuition.

5.1. Advantages

1. No Travelling Time

  • Unlike Physical tuition, online private Maths tuition allows for a highly personalized yet convenient option for students. 
  • Factors such as the amount of time used to travel between locations are completely eliminated, giving students more time to be productive. 
  • This also eliminates the hassle of having to be present at other locations.

2. Lower Rates 

  • Since tutors no longer have to travel, the rates tend to be lower.
  • Especially for tutors who have to travel a great distance to their desired location, online tuition reduces the time taken up in between and allows for convenience for both parties.

3. An Additional Solution To Your Busy Schedule

  • During the school term, many students are busy with their schoolwork, extracurricular activities, and supplementary lessons. 
  • Since the travelling time from their schools to tuition centres can be long, having the option for online tuition gives room for more flexibility when it comes to the students’ schedules. 
  • This would also mean that cancellations and rearrangement of classes can be reduced by a great amount.

4. Promotes Self-Discipline

  • Being able to learn from the comfort of your home, many succumb to laziness.
  • Constant motivation and discipline depend solely on the student, who is left to be independent.

5.2. Main Considerations

1. Connecting And Building Rapport With Students

  • Without face-to-face lessons, it is inevitably more challenging to connect and build rapport with students. 
  • Although there is still a means of communication, the interaction between the tutor and the students will not feel the same.
  • This may also be one of the other barriers preventing the student from opening up to the tutor and being comfortable.

2. Affordability Of A Laptop & Internet Access

  • Unlike many of us who own a laptop, computer and have internet access, there are still others who are not as privileged. 
  • This completely rules out online tuition as an option for them, despite the known cheaper rates. 

3. Technical Issues

  • With the use of the internet, no matter how advanced one’s technology is, technical issues are widely seen, and these issues may affect all users at once in some cases.
  • This may lead to slower navigation through the web, low quality or laggy videos.
  • Also, the accessibility to some features may be an obstacle preventing online lessons from taking place smoothly.

4. Easier Procrastination

  • Since there will not be anyone to remind the student when his/her assignments are due or when the test or mock quizzes are taking place, it is easy to look past these important dates.
  • It is a bad habit of many to leave work or revision to the last minute even when there are teachers or tutors present to jock their memories. 
  • In the absence of these figures, it can be safe to say many students fall victim to their own procrastination to a further extent.

6. 1-to-1 Private Maths Home Tuition

Having Private Maths Home Tuition is the go-to for many, with the most superior interaction, personalised teaching and the absence of a struggle for attention. For those who are curious about the reasons behind such a bold statement and the ones who are caught in a bind deciding whether to hire a private tutor, read on for 7 Reasons Why Tuition Is A Worthwhile Investment

Maths Tuition Centre

Sending your child to a maths tuition centre or for maths home tuition both has its individual benefits and unique selling points.


6.1. Advantages

1. Staying Ahead Of The Competitive Education Scene

  • It is no surprise that many students struggle to meet the benchmark set to be able to smoothly progress through their educational path.
  • Hiring a Home Tutor provides students with the resource of a personal teacher who has the ability to clear all doubts and misconceptions, pointing students in the right direction.
  • Private tutors would eliminate the fear that parents have regarding their child’s potentially unproductive study sessions.
  • Since they are tutors, there is a higher chance that they are more familiar with and up to date with the everchanging syllabus.

2. Coping With The Increasing Difficulty Of The MOE Syllabus

  • As many of us have heard, the MOE syllabus does not get any easier over the years, with a subject syllabus review once every six years.
  • For example, originally used in Secondary Schools only, the use of calculators to solve complex Maths problems has been introduced to Primary Schools.
  • Due to this evolution and changing syllabus, it often poses a challenge for parents who have to juggle between their work and tutoring their child. 
  • Since many Home Tutors have at least 5 years of experience and multiple students from various levels, they are often well-versed in helping students overcome learning gaps and problems efficiently and effectively.

3. Less Stress, Higher Confidence

  • Private Home Tutoring lowers the stress levels of students while cultivating higher confidence levels.
  • Private Home Tutoring allows students to clarify their doubts on the spot and imparts the most effective and efficient learning methods for the best output.
  • The improvement, often seen after receiving tuition, encourages and instils higher confidence in students, leading to self-belief and an increase in self-esteem.
  • Once students master the most ideal way of studying (unique to each), there will be more time set aside for other activities to develop the student’s passions.

4. An Affordable Investment

  • The rate for high-quality tutors goes as low as $25/Hour.
  • As much as a tutor’s rate often aligns with his/her qualifications, it does not equate to their actual experience in the field.
  • With a more informal style of teaching, students may feel more comfortable to speak up.

5. Mentor Figure & Inspiration

  • A large number of private tutors serve as a Mentor Figure and Inspiration to students.
  • This provides a good alternative in the case that students do not seem to be able to recognise any role models in school due to the large settings.
  • Since many tutors teach other students of a specific level, they are able to offer well-founded advice, academically and non-academically.

6. Allows Parents More Free Time

  • With private tutors, parents no longer have to be home or be worried about their child’s academic productivity.
  • This gives parents more freedom, in the sense that they can plan for more enjoyment out of the house. 
  • This opens up many opportunities for parents to observe and figure out their child’s passions, dreams, and goals.

7. Time Saving For Students

  • Many a time, private tutors travel to their student’s desired location, which is their house for the majority of them.
  • This means that students can save time wasted on travelling from one location to another, allowing for more time for productive activities. 
  • Since the lessons will be conducted from the comfort of their homes, students have the freedom of being able to freshen up and clear their minds before the lesson begins.
  • Parents will also be able to sit through the lessons to assess the progress and compatibility of the tutor.

 

6.2. Main Considerations

1. Qualifications Of The Tutor

  • Looking out for the qualifications of the Maths tutors is crucial in the selection process.
  • For example, if you are looking to engage an Ex/Current MOE Teacher, the first thing you have to look out for is the NIE Certificate to verify their authenticity.
  • Not to worry, tuition agencies like ourselves, MindFlex, will vet through the Maths tutors for you. 

2. Rates

  • When deciding on a Maths tutor, there are many applicable rates. 
  • For a clearer picture, you can refer to this link for Home Tuition Rates.

3. Testimonials, Experience, Track record

  • It is vital to look out for the testimonials, experience, and track record of the Maths tutor to assess his ability to teach your child. 
  • For example, for students with learning difficulties, it would be ideal to look for a Maths tutor who has dealt with similar students in order to minimize any hiccups or misalignments of interest.
  • The track record allows a parent to be informed of the Maths tutor’s success rate in bringing about improvement and helping his/her students excel in the pursuit of academic excellence.
  • As stated above, testimonials are very important and unbiased, making it a good factor to bring into consideration when choosing Maths tutors.

4. Teaching Style

  • Since every student has a different learning style, it is imperative that parents look for a Maths tutor with a teaching style that complements that of the child. 
  • For parents who are afraid of making the wrong choice, it is MindFlex’s utmost pleasure to change tutors for you, should you come across an incompatible tutor.
  • As a basis before taking matters further, a Maths tutor should also be able to interact and connect well with your child to make it easier for the child to muster up his/her courage to clarify any doubts.

5. Current intake of students

  • Parents must look out for the current quantity of students that the Maths tutor has at the moment.
  • Since one of the sole purposes of private tuition is the undivided attention, having too many students could be a red flag for tutors. 
  • Juggling between many students could possibly lead to a distracted and overworked Maths tutor, which parents should avoid at all costs as the effectiveness is almost instantly reduced.
