Finding The Right Home Tutor

Important Qualities to Look For In A Home Tutor

The Importance of Choosing The Right Home Tutor

Choosing the right home tutor will definitely make a great impact on your child’s academic improvement. Here at MindFlex, we guide our clients in making the right home tutor selections for their child. We also provide insights on our quality short-listing process & requirements.

Here are some important selection tips to hire the ideal Part-Time Tutor, Full-Time Tutor or Ex/Current MOE Teacher for your child. 

Part Time Tutors

Part Time Tutors are mostly made up of Undergraduate Students who are concurrently pursuing their Bachelor’s degree, as well as Degree/Diploma Graduates who are giving tuition on a Part Time basis. Here are the main characteristics of Part Time Tutors.

Young & Energetic

  • Part Time Tutors are often within the age group of 19 – 25 Years Old. They are often able to build good rapport and chemistry with students due to the small age-gap. This allows students to open up comfortably to them.

Good Academic Grades

  • Part Time Tutors often scored well in the subjects they tutor, which allows them the confidence to pass their studying knowledge and tips through home tutoring on a paid basis.

Fresh & Updated Knowledge on Syllabus

  • Part Time Tutors retain the fresh knowledge which they have learnt in their recent schooling days. The first-hand exposure to the education system allows them to relate and teach well through their own experience.

Flexible Schedules

  • Part Time Tutors often have flexible schedules which allows them to give more tutoring hours to students who require more help. This could be useful especially nearing exam periods where students may need more revision.

Affordable Rates

  • Part Time Tutors have the most affordable rates amongst the 3 main tutor categories as they do not have the same level of experience or qualifications as a Full Time Tutor. Nevertheless, they have proven to be a budget friendly and effective option for home tutoring in Singapore.

Here at MindFlex, we recommend only the best Part Time Tutors in Singapore. Here is an overview of our selection and shortlisting criteria:


1. Good Grades in Relevant Tutoring Subjects: 
It is important that our recommended Part Time Tutors are well versed in the subjects taught. Only Part Time Tutors who have scored at least an A or B grade for tutoring subjects will be short-listed and recommended to clients for selection.

 

2. At Least 1 Year of Tutoring Experience: 
We believe that good grades doesn’t necessarily translate to good teaching. Hence here at MindFlex, we only recommend Part Time Tutors who have generated at least 1 year of teaching experience.

 

3. Responsible & Good Commitment Level: 
It is important that students are able to receive consistent help from the hired tutor. This is an assurance we want to provide our clients when they engage a Part Time Tutor from MindFlex. Hence, we only recommend Part Time Tutors who are responsible and able to commit at least a minimum of 3 months to the assignment.

Full Time Tutors

Full Time Tutors are mostly made up of Degree Holders who have decided to pursue tutoring as a Full Time career. Here are the main characteristics of Full Time Tutors

Highly Experienced

  • Full Time Tutors often have at least 5 years of tutoring experience under their belt. Most have started tutoring since schooling days and have decided to pursue it professionally as a career after graduation.

Familiar with MOE Syllabus

  • Full Time Tutors mostly have a healthy student base of 10-20 pupils at any given time. With their large student base, it is natural that Full Time Tutors are familiar and updated with the latest changes in the MOE Syllabus.

Useful Resources & Materials

  • Full Time Tutors can often be found with good teaching materials and resources specially compiled to help their students learn effectively. These materials include useful notes, concise mind maps, topical practice questions, past year exam papers and other specially customized resources.

High Commitment Levels

  • Full Time Tutors showcase the highest commitment levels across the 3 categories of tutors. With tutoring being their full time profession, Full Time Tutors are able to devote the highest proportion of their time and energy to their students.

Fair & Reasonable Rates

  • Full Time Tutors are also reasonably priced and often within the budget of most Singaporean Families. With rates ranging between $35-80/hour, hiring a full-time tutor is a great educational investment whilst keeping the bank safe.

Here at MindFlex, we recommend only the best Part Time Tutors in Singapore. Here is an overview of our selection and shortlisting criteria:


1. Relevant Teaching Experience: 
Here at MindFlex, we only recommend Full Time Tutors who have recent experience in teaching the request level and subject. This ensures that the tutor is well equipped with the skills necessary to guide the student, and it also serves as a check that they are familiar with the updated MOE Syllabus.

 

2. Good Track Record & Testimonials: 
We also place special emphasis on recommending Full Time Tutors who have a positive track record with us for assignments, and especially those who have received good feedback & testimonials from previous clients. This is one of the best ways in ensuring that we recommend only top-quality Full Time Tutors.

 

3. Qualifications & Available Resources: 
Our agency also takes a special effort to recommend tutors who have a relevant educational qualification to the subject taught. For example, a Diploma in Early Childhood Education for Preschool Students, or a Maths-Related Degree (Engineering/Statistics) for Maths. Full Time Tutors who are able to provide their own material and useful resources are also key components in our shortlisting criteria.

Ex/Current MOE Teachers

Ex/Current MOE Teachers are NIE (National Institute of Education) Trained Teachers who have previously taught, or are currently teaching at MOE Schools. Here are the main characteristics of MOE Teachers.

Trained Experts at MOE Syllabus

  • MOE Teachers have all underwent training at NIE to be trained school teachers, and experts at the MOE Syllabus. This category of the tutors have first-hand experience in teaching, and even developing the MOE Syllabus as we know it.

Effective Teaching Pedagogy

  • MOE Teachers are well equipped and trained in teaching pedagogy by NIE. This skill-set enables them to conduct lessons in a way that allows students to learn effectively and efficiently. Combined with their school- teaching experience, MOE Teachers are able to bring the best out of every student, and help them excel in the fastest time possible.

National Exam Markers

  • MOE Teachers are also National Exam Markers who have participated in marking exercises for the PSLE, N / O / A Levels, and even the IB Diploma Programme. Being national exam markers, MOE Teachers will be teach students exam-answering techniques and strategies to score the maximum marks possible.

Exclusive Teaching Resources

  • MOE Teachers also have access to exclusive resources such as school notes, topical questions and exam papers which may not be readily available to other categories of tutors. These resources have been carefully developed and can easily take students to the top level if utilized effectively.

Premium Rates

  • MOE Teachers are the most expensive category of tutors due to their heavy demand, qualifications and teaching experience. Being qualified and trained teachers, is it expected that clients will have to pay a premium to engage their services. Nevertheless, many clients would consider this money well spent as MOE Teachers have proven time and time again to produce great and consistent academic results in a 1 to 1 home tuition setting.

Here at MindFlex, we recommend only the best Part Time Tutors in Singapore. Here is an overview of our selection and shortlisting criteria:


1. MOE & NIE Certified Teachers Only: 
As a reputable agency, we only recommend MOE Teachers who possess a NIE Qualification. This ensures that the tutor at hand has went through the necessary training and practicum to be considered a full-fledged MOE School Teacher. Contract Teachers and Allied Educators who are not NIE Trained will not be considered or recommended in this category of tutors. We also make a special effort to provide our clients with the necessary verification documentation (NIE & Educational Certs) upon request.

 

2. Subject & Level Teaching Experience: 
It is important to our agency that we recommend only MOE Teachers who have relevant subject and level teaching experience. For instance, if a client requested tuition for a Sec 4 Express Pure Chemistry student, we will short-list MOE Teachers who have experience teaching O Level Pure Chemistry Classes in Secondary Schools. This guarantees that students will be able to get the help they require from an expert.

 

3. Level of Commitment: 
One of the biggest concerns clients have about hiring an MOE Teacher is that they are worried about the tutor’s commitment due to their busy schedule. We make it a special point to ensure that our MOE Teachers are able to commit for a minimum of 3 months before taking up the tuition assignment. It is important to ensure that our clients receive a good level of commitment in order for the student to experience consistent grade improvements.

Investing In Education

Why Hire Home Tuition?

Home Tuition is an investment which pays off! As the famous saying goes: “No other investment yields as great a return as the investment in education”.

According to todayonline.com, the tuition industry is valued at $1.4 billion today. There has to be a reason why parents in Singapore are willing to spend such a significant amount of money on tuition lessons for their children.

Amongst the various tuition options in Singapore, Home Tuition in particular has also proven itself as the preferred option for many parents due to the personalised nature of lessons. 

As a well-established home tuition agency, we have seen many students and parents reap the benefits of home tuition lessons. Here are 6 strong reasons why parents should hire a home tutor for their child!

1-to-1 Personalized Attention

Home Tuition is often conducted in a 1-to-1 session. This means that the student is able to enjoy undivided attention from the tutor, and is also more likely to concentrate as there are less distractions compared to a group setting. Students are also able to clarify every single doubt and learning gap with no pressure from classmates. Furthermore, home tutors are also able to provide customized materials according to the weaknesses of the student.

Custom-Fit and Specialized Maths Materials from Results-Proven Tutors

95% of Students in Singapore who have engaged Home Tuition have reported improved academic results. Aside from syllabus teaching, home tutors are also able to provide useful materials and resources such as personalized notes, exam papers and revision materials. Useful skills such as effective time management will also be taught and practiced with students. Students are hence able to score much better for exams due to a combination of these benefits.

Increased Confidence

Improved results also naturally lead to an increased confidence level in students who engage home tuition. As the famous saying goes, “Success is like a drug”. Students who achieve academic success tend to be more confident in their abilities to excel in other fields of their life. This could relate to increased performance in their CCA and personal hobbies.

Less Stress

Hiring home tuition allows students to cope with academic demands in an effective and efficient manner. The 1.5 to 3 hours devoted weekly to clarifying doubts with home tutors is well-spent as it allows students to stay on top of their academics. This results in a lower stress levels, and more importantly allows them to enjoy their childhood or teenage years to the fullest.

Better & Wider Future Prospects:

One of the long-term benefits of hiring home tuition would be the increased future prospects of the student. As Singapore is a grade-centric and meritorious society, many local top universities and courses require good academic results as a pre-requisite. Scoring good grades naturally allows students more choices on their schools/courses available, and this in turn allows students to chase the dream career of his or her choice eventually.

Convenient & Safe Environment:

Convenience and safety are 2 of the most overlooked benefits of hiring home tuition. As home tuition is often conducted at the comfort of home, this means that both students and parents are able to save on unnecessary time and cost travelling. This allows much more flexibility to pursue other family activities. Furthermore as the tuition is conducted at home, parents need not worry about the safety of their child as they are in a safe and comfortable learning environment.
