The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is a highly accredited English test across the globe! As explained by the IELTS themselves, this test seeks to measure the language proficiency of people who want to study or work in places where English is used as the main language of communication. A nine-band scale is used to identify levels of proficiency and this test has 2 main types – Academic versus General Training! Both versions would test your skills in listening, reading, writing and speaking. So, how should we tackle IELTS and ace it? Well, you have to be familiar, prepared and confident to succeed! This is why many individuals decide to get 1-to-1 IELTS Home Tuition in Singapore. 1-to-1 IELTS Home Tuition in Singapore offers a comprehensive guide – from helping individuals taking IELTS have the relevant knowledge, to preparing them thoroughly to pass the examination with flying colours! Don’t believe it actually works? Read on!

We definitely don’t want to be unfamiliar.

So as mentioned earlier, the IELTS tests covers listening, reading, writing and speaking components. For the IELTS Listening and Reading test, there are 40 questions each. For the writing component, students are tested on various skills like coherence & cohesion, lexical resource, and grammatical range & accuracy. And for the speaking component, skills like fluency & coherence, lexical resource, pronunciation and grammatical range & accuracy are tested. With all these skills required, we bet that you might be in a confused state right now. Lexical resource? What’s that! How do I be grammatically accurate all the time? All these questions but no proper or professional answer… Hence, FamilyTutor, a leading IELTS Home Tuition Agency in Singapore, sees the need for 1-to-1 IELTS Home Tuition to ensure that students who wish to take IELTS are familiar with the requirements of the test. We provide IELTS Private Tutors in Singapore who are well trained and able to help participants taking IELTS familiarize themselves with the expectations of the paper. This is of utmost importance as without the help of IELTS Private Tutors, students might face the issue of IELTS being foreign to them and this definitely would not be a great experience at all.

We definitely don’t want to retake this.

Just like how examinations and tests work, good IELTS scores cannot be obtained without consistent hard work and great effort. It is stated in the IELTS website that if you don’t get the result you want, you can register for another IELTS test as soon as you feel ready to do so. However, one should note that their score is unlikely to increase unless they make a significant effort to improve their English. It was particularly noticed that it was harder to improve in speaking and writing than listening and reading as they are the more productive language skills! Hence, it is important to practise English and practise it right. IELTS Private Tutors in Singapore put in their very best effort to provide you with necessary steps to improve your English language skills. Be it through essay writing practices or oral pitches – they ensure that IELTS Home Tuition only benefits you and grows you to be a better English speaker and writer! It is also important to remain calm during the IELTS tests, and that certainly can be achieved through repeated practices. IELTS Home Tuition in Singapore is an avenue for that as well! Through timed practices or ‘graded’ assignments in IELTS Home Tuition, students will be already exposed to the conditions of having to complete English questions within set time frames and really be prepared for the test! FamilyTutor takes pride in doing our part as an IELTS Home Tuition Agency in Singapore and also ensures that we only provide you with the best and most suitable IELTS Home Tutor in Singapore for you!

We definitely want to succeed in studying, migrating or working!

IELTS is known to be the “world’s most popular high-stakes English language test for higher education and global migration” and is trusted by over 10000 organisations around the world! Not only that, IELTS is also proud of avoiding cultural bias so that every test taker is treated with utmost fairness. Questions in IELTS are based on the analysis of usage of language in the real world today. This test is very important and very prestigious, and so we definitely want to ace it to help us succeed in studying, migrating or even working overseas. IELTS Private Tuition in Singapore seeks to enable students with the relevant knowledge and ability to score well in IELTS. FamilyTutor, an informed IELTS Home Tuition Agency in Singapore, is also aware that IELTS also conducts a “face-to-face speaking test with a qualified and trained examiner who interacts with and assesses the test taker’s communicative skills in English”. This really means that test takers are really going to be interacting with an actual human examiner and not an automated robot. This increases the integrity and seriousness of the examination, therefore it might be helpful to acquire IELTS private tuition in Singapore where the IELTS Home Tutor can sufficiently and efficiently prepare you to succeed in studying, migrating or working overseas!

In essence, IELTS is really important. IELTS cannot be messed with. IELTS requires time, effort and help. And lastly, IELTS Private Tuition in Singapore is there to save the day!

At FamilyTutor, we strive to match a tutor to not only teach the student well, but also to build good rapport and meaningful relationships with the student and even with the whole family!

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.
