When should you engage 1-to-1 Home Tuition for Physics?

The Sciences are an integral part of your child’s education and it is without any doubt that the syllabus is getting harder and harder from when the world began. With more discoveries, new concepts and more expectations in this world, Physics … can be indeed difficult. It is important to know when your child needs 1-to-1 Home Tuition for Physics, hence here are some questions to consider:

Is your child’s Physics syllabus too difficult for you to teach?

As parents, maybe housewives, we tend to aid our child in school work when they are young. And over the years, we become their “clarification helpline” if the child does not understand something from school. So, if your child never had help from a tutor, it might be time to consider engaging a Physics home tutor if the syllabus is too difficult for you to understand. We know, times have changed – what we learnt 20 years ago in Secondary school could be what our child is learning in Primary school now. This is when Physics home tuition agencies in Singapore like FamilyTutor feel that it is apt to engage your child with Physics home tuition to keep up with the demands of education today.

Is your child unable to understand what the teacher is saying during Physics group tuition?

Another likely scenario in the world today is that children are unable to understand what is going on in Physics group tuitions! This is a cause for concern as the ultimate purpose for Physics tuition is for your child to get better at it. It is understandable, as this scenario is largely applicable to many children today. And what is the cause? The nature of Physics of course. Because Physics requires serious understanding in abstract concepts like Newton’s Law, Electricity and more, using one teaching method to a group of students hoping they understand is pretty much like hoping to strike the lottery here! Every child picks up Physics concepts differently, hence the essence of Physics 1-to-1 home tuition in Singapore fulfills it. With personalised curriculum and teaching explanations, your child is far better off with a Physics private tutor if Physics group tuition Does Not Work For Them.

Is your child coming home from school feeling destroyed from Physics?

It is very common for children to feel tired from a day at school, but feeling dejected? That’s something we need to care about. Maybe the child has been failing each test, or can simply never understand what is going on. It is important to note the power that Physics home tuition has for your child. With this extra helpline for your child, they can come home to victory! Sometimes, the Physics curriculum runs too quickly for your child to handle, so what more than Physics home tuition in the comfort of your home? Your child would not feel as pressured to keep up at all and can focus on understanding the subject. Maybe after a while… your child might even become a genius at it!

Has Your Child Given Up On Physics?

This Stage … is the worst. Having given up on a subject is depressing and for students still in schools… it is important for us to let them know that giving up is not the way to go. By engaging a Physics private tutor from a Physics home tuition agency, your child will hopefully be given an extra boost of confidence to see Physics in a different light. FamilyTutor takes pride in the fact that we understand the curriculum and children’s common needs. We ensure that we engage you with encouraging, patient and determined Physics home tutors so that they will Actually be able to Help Your Child Get Better! We want your child to stand up strong again and we believe that nothing is impossible at all.

Having Physics home tuition is not a shame at all; we should be happy that we are getting help for what we need. Children might not understand that requiring help does not mean weakness. Hence, it is important for parents to carefully assess situations for their child and decide if Physics private tuition is necessary. As parents, we also need to explain to our child that Physics home tuition in Singapore can really help to improve their understanding and that Nothing Is Too Difficult For Them! Add Oil!

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.
