A Levels - the National Examination that Determines The University Choices I Have

A Level Home Tuition in Singapore FamilyTutor
1-to-1 Home Tuition in Singapore?

The GCE A-Level examination is daunting, stressful and difficult for students across Singapore. Every batch of Junior College students embarks on their 2 year journey to acquire the A Level certification as the ‘entry requirement’ to Universities around the world. During this period, most students minimally tackle 3 H2 subjects, 1 H1 subject, H1 General Paper and H1 Project Work. Also, many past A Level students have considered acquiring 1-to-1 A Level Home Tuition in Singapore for all or just a couple of their subjects. Why is that so? Let’s briefly discuss some of the common reasons!

It’s not even 2 years, it feels like 1.5.

Time flies very very fast in Junior College. In year 1, students are busy with their new school life and also have to tackle the year-long H1 Project Work submission. They learn new subjects and topics and try their best to cope. In year 2, students do not have H1 Project Work to worry about anymore but are now faced with many new topics, and tests. And then A Levels comes, not in December, but in October! Therefore, JC life practically feels like 1.5 years of preparation, more so for the fact that year 1 might be a lullaby phase with a new school environment. Hence, having 1-to-1 A Level Home Tuition in Singapore would greatly help in being more efficient with the usage of time. During A Level Home Tuition, students will have an allocated amount of time to focus and catch up with the content churned out in school. FamilyTutor, a developed A Level Home Tuition Agency in Singapore, believes that we can make 2 years feel like eternity and the first step to achieve that is a more effective use of time. Hence, we highly recommend A Level Home Tuition as A Levels are definitely not something worth messing with!

I’ve never studied so hard in my entire life but still not master it.

So let’s say you’re the really hard working kind of student. You listen in class, complete your homework and also do ample amounts of revision daily. But regardless of how much you have done, how much you have Googled, and how much you try to ask around – there’s just so many things in the A Level syllabus which you do not understand. FamilyTutor understands that the feeling of not being able to master something even with multiple attempts sucks, hence we recommend you to strongly consider A Level Home Tuition in Singapore. This is because A Level Home Tutors in Singapore are trained to be able to adjust their teaching styles to YOUR learning needs. In this way, you would be receiving a special 1-to-1 curriculum from your A Level Home Tutor. It is without doubt that you will be able to better understand confusing concepts and make better use of time as well! After all, A Level Home Tuition in Singapore has seen very positive changes for many past A Level students where their understanding of topics improves drastically!

Oh you actually need to do well in Prelims?

Though A Levels usually starts in October each year, the Preliminary examinations in every Junior College usually starts 2-3 months before A Levels! So what does this mean? It means you have to be good at the Preliminary examinations already!!! This is because overseas universities’ applications are usually earlier than A Levels Results Release, which means that your preliminary scores are going to be very important. And if you are intending to pursue university education in a local university, applications will be after A Level results BUT BUT BUT if you want to be considered for scholarships, early admissions or anything else good, you probably should still have good preliminary results. So basically, YOU NEED TO BE CONSISTENTLY GOOD WITH YOUR STUFF. That’s why, a helpline like an A Level Private Tutor in Singapore would be useful. This A Level Private Tutor will be able to journey with you from start to end, ensuring that you consistently improve and do not repeat your mistakes. Generally, it is also good to have an A Level Private Tutor to be able to keep you on track and make sure you do not sway. As a committed A Level Home Tuition Agency in Singapore, FamilyTutor thinks that A Levels should not be played around with and really, though you have to pay to have an A Level Home Tutor in Singapore, success is worth more than that.

What do I study in University if I suck at everything?

Sometimes, a loss of direction is very overbearing. “What do I do after Junior College?” is the question in most students’ heads when they’re nearing the Preliminary Examinations or A Levels. They only start to think of it nearing the end because they have been too busy and too loaded to even think about it or realise it matters, earlier. And this might be a problem for them because if they start thinking about it late, they might accidentally miss applications or just end up rushing at the end. This is exactly why time management and being on task is very very important for a Junior College student. But it surely isn’t as easy as it sounds. Hence, FamilyTutor, a concerned A Level Home Tuition in Singapore, appreciates the help from A Level Private Tuition. We’re not saying that every single child needs A Level Private Tuition in Singapore, but what we’re saying is: if you need it, get it. It’s pretty much something that students can feel and gauge for themselves at such an age. So if you feel it, acknowledge it early. We don’t want a situation where hey, you’re getting A Level Private Tuition just weeks before A Levels!

This whole journey is a process of learning and A Levels are not easy. If you feel like you need help with a particular subject or a few subjects or all subjects, seek help before it’s too late. You only want to take A Levels once, right?

After requesting for a tutor using any of the above 3 ways, within 24 hours, we will update you with a few sets of really suitable and detailed tutor profile via WhatsApp! From there, you can choose the tutor that you prefer.

In the midst of choosing your preferred tutor, you may request for more information of the recommended tutors by communicating with our coordinators. If it makes you feel more assured, you may even request to speak with the tutor privately via a direct phone call.

Once you are comfortable with engaging one of the recommended tutors, we can help you set a start date immediately!

At FamilyTutor, we strive to make our parents or students feel comfortable engaging the tutors whom we recommend!

Generally, there are 3 types of home tutors. They are:

 Part-Time Tutors
As the name suggests, they conduct home tuition as a part-time job. They can be working full-time as a store manager, data analyst, or even a salesperson! However, because they love teaching and can teach really well, they choose to teach as a home tutor outside of their usual working hours!

Full-Time Tutors
These are the tutors whose main occupation is to conduct home tuition and impart valuable knowledge to student, which explains the phrase “full-time”! Giving home tuition is their bread and butter, so sometimes we call them “professional home tutors”!

Ex-/Current School Teachers
These tutors have the experience teaching in MOE/IGCSE/IB schools, therefore they know the syllabus really well!

At FamilyTutor, we want our tutors to not only impart knowledge and help the student improve their grades, but also want the students & parents to feel at ease when the tutors are teaching at their home! Even better, we want the students & parents to feel like their tutors are part of their family (that is also why we are called “FamilyTutor”)!

Therefore, we manually interview our tutors and not let any computer algorithm do the job! By doing so, we are able to detect any favourable human attributes – such as sincerity, responsibility, and positive attitude – and recommend only those tutors that possess these attributes to the students & parents who come to us!

Yes, we are providing a service, so we must go out of the way to help the students & parents achieve their academic goals and feel good about our service and tutors!

When we recommend a few really suitable tutors to you, you might see that for the same subject and level, different tutors charge different hourly rates.

This happens because usually FamilyTutor does not set those hourly rates. Most of the time, the hourly rates that you see are ones that each individual tutor charges based on their qualifications, experience, the distance they have to travel to the student’s place, their level of teaching confidence, and many more.

One thing that FamilyTutor can do for you is to ensure that the tutors’ asking hourly rates are in line with the current market rates. When the time comes, our experienced coordinators may even help you negotiate for hourly rates that both parties are comfortable and happy with!

You can view the latest market hourly rates over here.

Before we explain further, you have to know that you do not need to pay any additional fee for our matching service! Our matching service is free for students & parents!

Also, you do not need to make any advance payment! The bottom line is: based on the mutually agreed hourly rate, you pay only for the lessons that have been delivered.

Let’s say our selected tutor charges an hourly rate of $50/hour for a 2-hour lesson. Before this 2-hour lesson, there is no need to pay the $100 tuition fee at all. Any payment would be made after that 2-hour lesson has been delivered by that tutor.

Our agency fee is charged to our tutors. To facilitate the collection of agency fees from our tutors, we require your cooperation to make payment for the first few lessons (usually 50% of the first 4 weeks) directly to FamilyTutor. Thereafter, you will make payment to the tutor directly for the remaining lessons. No worries, the payment details will be communicated to you clearly when you confirm to engage a tutor with us!

Again, you do not pay anything extra at all!

You may request to make payment to the tutors by cash or cheque, via bank transfer, PayNow, or PayLah! This is provided that the confirmed tutors are agreeable too! Usually, our tutors have no problem with any of the options mentioned above. 

Our agency fee is charged to our tutors, so to facilitate the collection of agency fees from our tutors, we require your cooperation to make payment for the first few lessons (usually 50% of the first 4 weeks) directly to FamilyTutor. Thereafter, you will make payment to the tutors directly for the remaining lessons. No worries, the payment details and method will be communicated to you clearly when you confirm to engage a tutor with us! We accept bank transfer, PayNow, PayLah, cash, or even cheque!

You can terminate the tuition any time after the first lesson if you think that the tutor is not suitable for you. However, you must inform FamilyTutor at least 24 hours before the next lesson and must make payment for all the lessons conducted. Please note that it is our company’s policy that any termination of tuition made less than 24 hours before the next lesson will incur a late charge of 50% of that lesson’s fee.

To terminate tuition with the confirmed tutor, please inform FamilyTutor at +65 8777 2168 (Mon-Sun 9am-10pm) via WhatsApp or phone call at least 24 hours before the next lesson commences. From there, we will advise you on the next step.

Please note that once you have confirmed the tutor, there is a binding contract to complete one full lesson. You may request for a change of tutor or termination of the tuition only after completing the first lesson. Any termination before the first lesson is completely delivered will incur an administrative charge of no less than one lessons’ worth of fee.

Tutors are expected to commit at least 4 weeks’ worth of lessons before any termination of tuition. If the tutor wants to terminate the tuition without any valid reason (e.g. medical-related) before completing at least 4 weeks’ worth of lessons, he or she will not be entitled to receive any tuition fee that is yet to be paid to him or her.

We seek your understanding that we cannot force our tutors to commit for more than 4 weeks of lessons. However, we do encourage responsible behaviour in our tutors.

In the first place, when recommending tutors to you, we strive to select only the responsible ones for you! We believe that as long as the students & parents treat our tutors with basic respect, there is no reason our tutors would terminate the tuition.

Yes, you can postpone lessons.

However, any postponement of the lessons in the first 4 weeks should be made known to FamilyTutor via WhatsApp or phone calls at +65 8777 2168 and to the tutor via his or her phone number at least 24 hours before the next lesson commences. This is except for special cases such as medical emergencies.

Please note that any failure to postpone at least 24 hours before the next lesson commences may incur a compensation to the tutor for his or her loss of time. The compensation is usually no less than 50% of one lessons’ worth of fee. 

FamilyTutor discourages our tutors to postpone lessons unless there is a valid reason, such as suddenly falling sick or having some sort of medical emergencies.

All in all, we encourage our tutors to inform you of any postponement of lesson at least 24 hours before the next lesson commences, and makes up for the missed lesson within the next 7 days.

At the same time, we wish you could set a healthy communication system with your tutor so both parties could understand each other’s schedule and come to a consensus regarding any postponement issue.
