IBDP Private Tuition in Singapore: Rare but Effective!

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) is a 2 year educational programme that provides an internationally accepted qualification for entry into higher education. It is recognised by a range of universities worldwide! In IBDP, students have to complete relevant assessments in 6 subjects and meet 3 core requirements. The rigor of IBDP requires students to be evaluated using both internal and external assessments. Students will complete each subject with an externally assessed series of examinations which ultimately decide their grade! IBDP has become increasingly well-received these days, and is generally commended for its need for interdisciplinary thinking in its subjects. Students taking IBDP in Singapore have been aided well by 1-to-1 IBDP Home Tuition in Singapore. This is because though IBDP is broad, complex and daunting sometimes, IBDP Home Tuition in Singapore has made learning focused, manageable and achievable! Let’s discuss into more detail as to why IBDP Private Tuition in Singapore is rare but effective:

Broad but Focused

The IBDP has a very broad scope of subjects for IBDP students to select from. Apart from the 6 subject groups (studies in language and literature, language acquisition, individuals and societies, sciences, mathematics, the arts), the curriculum also consists of the DP core which aims to broaden students’ educational experience. It challenges them to apply their knowledge and skills through 3 core elements: theory of knowledge, extended essay and creativity/activity/service. Each IBDP child’s selection of modules within each subject group as well as choice of core element types is unique to their own preference. With such an array of different subject types, IBDP students will definitely be challenged. In such a setting, 1-to-1 IBDP Home Tuition in Singapore aims to make what seems broad and difficult become focused for our IBDP students! With an IBDP Private Tutor who is able to go through specific concepts and requirements of different subjects, IBDP students can fear no more about not being able to grasp ideas and more effectively cope with the requirements of the IBDP. FamilyTutor, a supportive IBDP Home Tuition Agency in Singapore, welcomes you on board the IBDP Home Tuition community! We hope that we are able to make IBDP a more memorable experience for you, firstly focusing on your personal areas for improvement!

Complex but Manageable

While it is essential for the IBDP to cover a myriad of subject disciplines, the IBDP also values specialisation in greater depth in areas of personal interest. Thus, the IBDP has 2 kinds of levels – IBDP Standard Level (SL) and IBDP Higher Level (HL). SL courses are meant to be an eye-opener for IBDP students to be exposed to a range of disciplines that they might otherwise opt out of. HL courses on the other hand, allow for students to invest more time with the subjects that they are more interested in, delving deeper into understanding the subject! IBDP topics might become quite complex at some point, and sometimes to a point where it isn’t manageable on your own. This is where 1-to-1 IBDP Home Tuition in Singapore steps in to give you a hand. FamilyTutor, an understanding IBDP Home Tuition Agency in Singapore, wants to make the unmanageable manageable. We believe that with the guidance of IBDP Home Tuition in Singapore, large chunks of difficult content can be broken down into simple and understandable bits. This way, you will gain better understanding in the complexities of the content and manage well!

Daunting but Achievable

The most common worry in IBDP students would definitely be the external and internal assessment, with external assessment being the way more daunting one. This is because external assessments and their high levels of objectivity and reliability involved really test the skill sets and abilities of every IBDP student. These assessments usually come in the form of essays, structured problems, short-response questions, data-response questions, text-response questions, case-study questions and multiple-choice questions. FamilyTutor understands that IBDP students like you want to be able to not only understand your content, but actually be able to translate the knowledge into accurate answers in assessments as well. So as an expert IBDP Home Tuition in Singapore, what we can offer is a great selection of IBDP Private Tutors in Singapore. If you need a friendly and approachable IBDP Home Tutor who is able to answer your queries, we got you. If you need a strict and influential IBDP Home Tutor who can keep you disciplined in your revision, we got you too. So basically, your IBDP Home Tutor, your choice! We just want to help you achieve your desirable grade in your IBDP assessments.

Whether it is calling us straight at +65 8777 2168, WhatsApp-ing us at +65 8777 2168, or filling up our Tutor Request Form, you can expect us to guide you step-by-step from start to end!

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.
