Why 1-to-1 Home Tuition for JC Students is a Lifesaver

The final stage of formal education in Singapore under the close guidance of teachers is Junior College education! Junior College education is a time where students spend 2 years to learn the A Level syllabus to conquer the A Level examination. The A Level results will then be a form of certification for Junior College students to enter universities and take courses of their choice, typically with the free selection of 3 H2 and 1 H1 subjects. This makes the 2 years in Junior College highly crucial: it will give them an ‘entry pass’ to pursue what they want to do in university which subsequently influences their career outcomes as well. On top of having to do well for the A Level examinations, Junior College students also need to allocate time to build up their portfolio with Co-Curricular Activities (CCA) contributions, Community Involvement Programme (CIP) contributions and other self-initiated projects. With all that commitment, 1-to-1 JC Home Tuition in Singapore has been a lifesaver for many many Junior College students. 1-to-1 JC Home Tuition basically helped them accelerate their understanding and learning in the right way, making the ‘A’ on the report card become reality for them!

Overcoming Ordinary Objectives

As mentioned earlier, the 2 years in Junior College requires a lot of goal-setting and achieving. Be it wanting to hit a minimum grade in a school examination or aiming to pass General Paper, students set ordinary objectives for themselves just like anyone else. But these ordinary objectives are not achievable without a lot of hard work. Take it from former Junior College students: we totally realised that we must do way better than we think in terms of revision, studying and homework. With JC Home Tuition in Singapore aiming to improve familiarity and skill in terms of the A Level syllabus, we saw ourselves overcoming our ordinary objectives! In fact, my JC Private Tutor in Singapore helped me to achieve more than my ordinary objective. This was not through any black magic, but rather through breaking down the content into smaller bits to digest, and eventually making me realise that ‘it is not as hard as I thought!’. FamilyTutor, a JC Home Tuition in Singapore, wants you to experience that same realisation, that same joy and overcome your objectives by exceeding them! We know that in this difficult 2 years, a little help like JC Home Tuition would go a long way in not only building on your pre-existing knowledge but also stretching your limits as well.

Sustaining Solid Successes

Another consideration in your A Level journey is the sustainability of your daily lifestyle. Let me further elaborate on what this means: In the midst of coping with CCA, CIP and other responsibilities, you need to maintain and improve your academic standard as well. You can’t just score A for a class test but fail the entire examination right? That’s why it is important to sustain your solid successes! One of the comfortable ways to do so is to commit to a weekly JC Home Tuition session. This is because your JC Private Tutor will be able to track your progress and revise/teach you every week. The form of weekly routine in JC Private Tuition will help to continually support you and be a safeguard for your progress. Slow and steady wins the race! And FamilyTutor hopes you get to enjoy that level of academic reassurance that you are constantly improving and not worsening in any part of your 2 year JC journey. As an experienced JC Home Tuition Agency in Singapore, we have witnessed with our very own eyes the solid successes obtained by our JC students who have received quality JC Private Tuition in Singapore!

Conquering Crucial Crossroads

One of the greatest worries of Junior College students would be on whether they manage to get past the 2 years of Junior College successfully. Viewing your A Level result slip and emerging with a huge smile on your face would be conquering your crucial crossroads! To be able to smoothly transition into your next stage of life after Junior College is every JC student’s wish and as a caring JC Home Tuition Agency in Singapore, FamilyTutor wants to make that dream come true for you. So we strongly urge you to consider engaging a professional JC Home Tutor in Singapore to guide and aid you in your own personal JC journey. Everyone’s journey is different due to just too many reasons, so a JC Home Tutor who is able to act as a mentor to you and your life would be a blessing for you. Worry no more about being embarrassed about talking about your struggles or asking questions which you probably should have answers to; JC Home Tuition in Singapore is meant to be an additional outlet apart from school for students to air all their concerns!

A JC Home Tutor in Singapore could be the ‘Lifesaver’ for this crucial period in your education journey. If it means securing a successful education pathway and a great life ahead, why not?

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.
