Sincere Advice from the FamilyTutor Team

FamilyTutor's Client Success Officer

Dear Parent/Student, 

The home tuition rates are definitely a big factor in your decision-making process. 

To save you some time, we’ve tabulated the country-wide tuition market rates in the table above. 

One of our jobs as a highly-ethical home tuition agency is to ensure that you do not overpay for the tutors whom you engage. 

At the same time, we DON’T wish to set your expectations too high by showing ridiculously low rates on our website and have you end up paying more than what you expect. 

So what’s the best expectation to have?

Based on our rich experience in the home tuition industry, we humbly suggest you to expect the mid-tier to the high-tier of the tuition rate ranges shown. 

What do I mean by that?

Let’s say you’re considering a Full-Time Tutor for your P4 child. 

Based on the table, the tuition rate for that is $40-$55/hour.

If you wish to engage a reliable and effective tutor for the sake of great academic improvement, it’s best to expect our strongly recommended tutors to quote somewhere from $40/hour to $90/hour

We always advise our clients to pay the high-quality tutors what they are truly worth, because in return they will always work hard to provide value that is worth at least 2 times of what you pay them.

Still unsure what to expect?

We’ll guide you through.

Our matching service is FREE for you, and you have no obligation to start lessons with any of our recommended tutors.

Request for a tutor and claim your FREE home tutor recommendations today, and we sincerely look forward to helping you reach your academic goals!

Any Question About Our 1 to 1 Home Tuition Rates/Fees In Singapore?

The part-time tutors employed are often the studying youth, meaning those who are still completing their undergraduate studies to attain a diploma or degree. Furthermore, students who have also acquired their diploma or degree opt to teach on a part-time basis. Hence, here are some of the most promising qualities of part-time tutors.

Young & Supporting

  • The part-time tutors who are usually employed are found within the ages of 19 – 25 years old, still young, and studying for their diploma or degree. This young age benefits them with children, thus, creating a meaningful and understanding relationship with their students becomes easier due to this very purpose. On this note, students also seem more comfortable with young home tutors, sharing both academic and personal troubles with ease.

Academic Achievements

  • The employed home tutor is carefully chosen as per their expertise and knowledge. Grades play a viable role in both their selection and their further teaching. Most times, tutors are chosen as per their previously achieved grades, after which they are assigned a subject for which they scored the highest. This ensures they are both confident in their teaching as well as their knowledge in the prescribed course. Furthermore, they are also seemingly more educated of the best tricks and methods to use in order to achieve good results.

Thoroughly Educated and Familiar with Syllabus

  • Another deeming quality of part-time tutors is their familiarity with the syllabus. Since they have recently graduated from the same classes, the tutors are well aware of the ins and outs of the system. Hence, with their first-hand exposure to the same system, these part-time private tutors can teach and convey concepts and information as they had learnt so not long ago.

Customised Schedules

  • The benefit with part-time tutors is their easy access and availability to clear any doubts children may have on the spot. Furthermore, with their flexible schedules, these private tutors can offer more hours to weaker students or even shift their schedule according to a child’s suitability. As a result, students acquire the best help especially during the last few months before exams when they require the most assistance in their revision.

Budget-Friendly Rates

  • Unlike other categories of home tutors, part-time tutors are very affordable in terms of their payment. As they do not require the qualifications and expertise that other tutors provide, part-time tutors are considered the most budget-friendly out of the three to most families.

We at FamilyTutor employ only the best part-time tutors all of Singapore has to offer. Furthermore, we aim to recommend the tutors most suited to your needs, both financially and academically. Listed below is the selection criteria that our organization adapts when looking for eligible part-time tutors.

  1. Good Grades in Requested Subjects:

We ensure that our selected and recommended tutors are well educated and knowledgeable in the subject they are chosen for. Hence, only candidates whose grades were at minimum a “B” are chosen and selected for further reference.

  1. Minimum Teaching Experience of at least 1-year:

We at FamilyTutor believe that good grades do not always ensure great teaching. As a result, we look for experienced tutors, candidates with past and first-hand experience teaching students of similar ages. Hence, along with good grades in a particular subject, a critical requirement for selected candidates is at least 1-year experience of tutoring.

  1. Responsible & Good Commitment Level:

We at FamilyTutor aim to provide consistent help to students through their hired tutors. An important go-to for this purpose is that the hired tutor is responsible and committed to the student, along with being consistently available for any means necessary. Therefore, we select tutors who are readily committed to the project and are willing to invest at least 3 months for it.

When concerned with full-time tutors, diploma and degree holders are preferred over students still studying. The selected candidates for FamilyTutors’ 1 to 1 tuitions are often graduated and educated; thus, they willingly decide to commit full-time to the tutoring service. Some of the outstanding qualities of these tutors are listed below.

Highly Experienced

Full-time tutors are highly experienced in the tutoring industry, each one often having a 5-year or more experience span. However, this experience comes from immense dedication to the role, therefore many of those home tutors started off with part-time tutoring during their undergraduate studies and thus decided to pursue the service once they attained their degree. This doubled their experience within the field and provided them a professional and stable career.

Familiar with MOE Syllabus

Since full-time private tutors are completely dedicated to the role, they are able to teach 10-20 students at any particular time. These varieties of students come from different areas and schools, therefore providing the tutors with immense knowledge over the syllabus being taught.

Resource Banks

Since full-time private tutors in Singapore teach a variety of students from different areas, they come to acquire a large and useful resource bank. This is further transferred to newer students. These resource banks are probably the most helpful to students with their large collection of notes, mind maps, important information as well as tips and tricks to ace the paper they are studying for. Furthermore, with the added experience, tutors have past papers and practice questions which they pass down to currently studying students.

Great Commitment Levels

Amongst the three categories, full-time home tutors are those who are heavily committed to tutoring; therefore they aim to dedicate most of their day for tutoring students. Since this is their full-time career, investing in long hours and tutoring according to the students are some of the benefits they humbly provide.

Fair & Reasonable Rates

For most Singaporean families, full-time private tutors can be acquired at a very reasonable rate of $35-$80/hour. This ensures that the family does not undergo any financial step back as well as providing a very experienced and qualified help for their children’s education.

We at FamilyTutor aim to recommend and employ the most experienced full-time tutors especially those in your financial reach. Therefore, listed below is the strict procedure we follow when selecting and shortlisting worthy candidates and tutors for our offered 1 to 1 home tuition sessions.

  1. Experience in Required Subjects:

We at FamilyTutor prioritise a private tutor’s experience over any other selection criteria and hence, recommend and select those home tutors with experience of teaching for the last few years. With current experience, these private tutors are more aware of the syllabus being studied in their prescribed subject. Furthermore, the home tutors are more equipped to handle the challenging sections and questions as well as teaching the students the right concepts. It should also be noted that tutors with current experience are also more generalised and familiar with the current MOE syllabus.

  1. Good Performance and Reviews:

Recommending the best private tutors is very important, especially those who will be working for long term projects. Hence, we observe tutors with the best track record, this could include those with the most positive results and very good feedback. Through this observation and emphasis, we recommend and select the best ones to our clients.

  1. Qualifications & Available Resources:

Qualifications are very important, especially in the subjects the tutor is being assigned. This could simply mean appointing tutors with a Maths degree as a secondary school Maths tutor. Therefore, this ensures that the tutor is confident and knowledgeable in their methods and can offer the most help to the student as per their needs during 1 to 1 tuition sessions.

Ex-/Current School Teachers are NIE (National Institute of Education) Trained Teachers who have previously taught or are currently teaching at MOE Schools. The main characteristics of MOE Teachers are listed below:

MOE Trained Experts with NIE Certification

MOE teachers have all undergone NIE training to become experienced and knowledgeable teachers. These trained employees are also considered experts on the MOE syllabus. With their first-hand experience in teaching students as well as their high involvement in the MOE syllabus, their 1 to 1 tuition methods are perfect to the mark.

Efficient Tutoring Pedagogy

MOE Teachers are well equipped and trained in teaching pedagogy by NIE. The given skill set ensures that their teaching pattern and methods are the most effective and efficient. Furthermore, with their past experience of being MOE teachers, these home tutors are quite effective in their techniques to bring out the best of a student as well as provide them the sufficient help they require.

National Exam Markers

MOE teachers are also, with their other expertise, national exam markers. From grading O and N-Level exams, A-Levels as well as IB diploma programmes, they have various effective techniques to teach current students. Furthermore, having marked national exams gives them the general layout preferred for each subject, such as answering strategies and tricks which are given to their students in order to achieve the maximum possible grades.

Exclusive Resources

MOE teachers also have access to all-round exclusive resources, this could include topical past papers, chapter notes, and various exam papers. These resources are very limited and hence not readily available to other categories of home tutors. However, MOE teachers make use of these resources to teach students and ensure they acquire more than just a passing grade. 

Premium Rates

Out of all three categories, MOE teachers are considered the most expensive in the tutoring industry. Due to their high-level experience and qualifications adding to their high demand, rates for these tutors are quite high comparative to the others. To acquire the trained and educated services of the MOE tutors, it is very critical that the clients readily pay the premium prices. However, it has been proven time and time again that the 1 to 1 tuition services acquired from these teachers are high quality and of great help to the students. Hence, investing in the MOE tutor would guarantee nothing less of a bright future for your children.

Here at FamilyTutor, we select and recommend our clients the best MOE teachers available for their child according to the requested subject and schedule. Listed below is the criteria we use to select and shortlist our employed private tutors.

  1. MOE & NIE Certified Teachers Only:

To ensure that our agency hires the best for student’s 1 to 1 home tuition, we only employ and recommend NIE-certified MOE teachers. This ensures that the hired staff has undergone various training and is appointed rightfully. Furthermore, any contract teachers or other educators are not administered within this role, proper certification is both required and provided to the clients hiring the tutor.

  1. Subject & Level Teaching Experience:

We at FamilyTutor believe that particular qualifications are very important, especially in the case of a tutor being qualified in the subject he is prescribed. We ensure that the tutor chosen for your child in terms of the requested subject has been a part of the MOE teachers past experience. An example of this could be a request for a Pure Chemistry private tutor and we would recommend the best Pure Chemistry home tutor who has experience with teaching in secondary school.

  1. Level of Commitment:

Clients are often concerned with the inconsistent availability of the hired MOE tutor for their child. Due to the busy schedule of MOE teachers, parents worry that they will not be able to provide sufficient help when tutoring their child. Hence, during our recommendation we at FamilyTutor aim to provide a tutor with the best commitment plan to his hiring employer. With assurance of at least 3 months with the same student, FamilyTutor ensures that the MOE teacher will commit long enough for the parents to see consistent improvements in the child’s education.

When we recommend a few really suitable 1 to 1 home tutors to you, you might see that for the same subject and level, different home tutors charge different hourly tuition 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 home 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 home 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!

If you are one who shops around different 1 to 1 home tuition agencies, you may see different hourly rate ranges for the subjects and levels that you require the tutor for.

There are many reasons for the differences.

Some agencies may have not updated their website for many years, thus the hourly rates shown on the website may be outdated.

Some agencies may quote a much lower hourly rate range so they could attract parents or students to make the first contact with them. Most of the time in such cases, parents or students eventually may find themselves paying for a higher hourly rate than promised because there just aren’t many great tutors who can accept the low hourly rates. 

At FamilyTutor, we show only the most updated market hourly rates (for min. 1.5-hour classes) offered by the tutors available out there. We wish to be transparent with potential clients like you because we want to manage your budget expectations well from the very start, instead of having you to realise that you need to pay for more than what is initially promised. 

To FamilyTutor, education is a serious matter. As much as we do not want you to scrimp on education, we do not want you to overspend on it at the same time.

You can view the latest market hourly rates provided above.

Before we explain further about the payments for our 1 to 1 tuition sessions, 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 and 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 also agree! Usually, our tutors have no problem with any of the options mentioned above.
