Private Tuition Terms of Service for Parents and Students

What types of tuition teachers can I choose from?
Popular Tutors represents over 37,000 home tutors. Their teaching backgrounds include university lecturers, current and former MOE school teachers, full-time tutors, university undergraduates, polytechnic students, and part-time tutors who also teach at the leading tuition centres.

Tuition hourly rates
Hourly rates range from $30 to $120. These are set by our tutors, and the rates vary according to the tutor’s track record and academic qualifications.

How does Popular Tutors shortlist tutors?
We manually and diligently approve tutor matches. After you tell us your requirements, at least two of our tuition coordinators will carefully search for suitable and experienced tutors. Their supervisor will then approve the potential matches before we submit the profiles for your review.

If you wish to verify the tutor’s qualifications, you may request for the tutor to take their relevant certificates to the first lesson. We try not to email certificates due to privacy and security concerns.

What are the agency fees?
The commission is levied on the tutor that you hire, meaning that our matching service is free to you.

Popular Tutors’ fee on the tutor is generally 50% of the fees for the 1st month of tuition. After you have confirmed the assignment’s details such as schedule, rate, and location, we will email you an official invoice with the confirmation of the details, as well as payment information.

What if the tutor is not suitable?
This very rarely happens – but if it does, we will immediately replace the tutor for free. We will promptly make the necessary arrangements, to suit your new requirements. You are still required to make payment for all lessons conducted.

Selecting a suitable tutor
Our clients set realistic requirements. Tuition rates depend on home tutor qualifications as well as tutor availability. The more requirements you have, the harder it is to find a suitable tutor. For example, if you strictly want only female tutors, that will halve your options of the tutors who are qualified to teach your child.

Many parents prefer to have separate tutors for different subjects, as most tutors are more comfortable in effectively teaching at most 2 subjects.

Major exams
Tutors that focus on teaching students in Primary 6, Secondary 4 and JC2 often charge more. This is because tutoring students who are taking major examinations requires intense effort and specialized skills.

Budget
Tutors with good experience and qualifications are in high demand, and they will not accept tutor assignments with low fees.

Some home tutors may be willing to accept tuition assignments that offer lower rates if they are staying very near the students’ home, or if the student is willing to travel to the tutor’s home.

Benefit from Popular Tutors’ experience and network
Our tuition coordinators are very experienced and resourceful in the home tuition industry. We ensure you get a fair deal by making sure that our clients and tutors are well-informed, and that our tutors are asking for reasonable rates that suit their teaching experience, track record, and qualifications.

How do I pay for the first month’s tuition sessions?
After half of the first month’s lessons have been conducted, please transfer the tuition fees amounting to half of the first month’s fees to Popular Tutors’ bank account.

Therefore, if the fee for 4 tuition sessions a month at $50/session is $200 (4 sessons x $50 per session), please transfer $100 to our account after the second tuition session. At the end of that first month, please pay the remaining $100 directly to the tutor.

Please ensure that you notify Popular Tutors upon transferring the fees, for verification of the payment. We will then send a confirmation message to you that the funds were received.

Quality of service
Popular Tutors does not guarantee that the tuition lessons will immediately improve the student’s academic grades. Educators recognize that an improvement of grades needs several factors to be in place, and this includes willingness to learn, family encouragement, and diligence. A home tutor can take the role of subject matter role model that provides homework support, exam skills and academic advice.

As a guideline, Popular Tutors hopes that the client commits to at least one month of lessons before deciding if the tutor is able to help the academic performance of the student.

Clients are liable to pay tuition fees for all lessons conducted, regardless of how satisfactory the lessons were.

Popular Tutors holds no legal liability for problems and disputes that arise between tutors and clients. We reserve the right to terminate or deny services to any person at any time, as well as the right to amend our Terms of Service without prior notice.

Feedback
We appreciate your help in providing us accurate feedback so that we can improve our service and processes.

Qualifications of tutors
Our tutors are expected to provide accurate information of their qualifications. Cheating is a serious offence, and we will report the matter to the police once we have discovered the fraud.

Privacy policy
Popular Tutors values your privacy and we treat your personal information with respect.

Confidentiality
Popular Tutors does not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with anyone except to provide products or services you have requested.

Popular Tutors will not publicly reveal any private information such as mobile number, or full addresses, to anyone except when necessary in providing the services to the persons described below:

Client
A client is a parent or student who makes a request for a tutor with Popular Tutors.

The client will describe the approximate location, academic subject(s), frequency and duration of lessons, special needs and requirements, and other information that may be revealed to prospective tutors for the purpose of tuition matching.

Tutor
A tutor is a person who registers with Popular Tutors, with the intention and ability to teach specified academic subjects, for a fee at the rate established by him/her.

During the registration process, we may ask for information that includes your name, email address, mobile number, gender, occupation, tutoring experience, qualifications, and subjects that you want to teach.

Parents that are given more description and information about your teaching abilities and track record are more likely to hire you, should your credentials be suitable for their children.

Statutory requirements
Though we make every effort to preserve users’ privacy, we will need to disclose personal information, when required by law.

Transfer of information
In the event that Popular Tutors goes through a business transition that may include a merger, an acquisition by another company, or a sale of a portion of our assets, users’ personal information may be part of the assets transferred.

Prior to such a transition, we will email our users, during which you may opt out.

​Cooperation with other tuition agencies

Tuition Assignments Terms of Service – Private Tutors

How do I get more assignments?
Popular Tutors usually contacts prospective private tutors by sms or Whatsapp. Our priority list consists of tutors who reply us promptly, and whose clients have given us positive feedback about their tutoring abilities.

What commission does Popular Tutors charge?
Our commission is 50% of the first 4 weeks of tuition. Thereafter, all the fees will be paid directly to the tutor by the client.

If the tuition does not last for the 4 weeks, we will adjust the commission and transfer a fair pro-rated amount to your bank account.

How do tutors teach?
Popular Tutors’ private tutors use their own methods to teach, in accordance with the students’ needs.

Every student is different. We encourage you to understand the challenges they are facing, and customize methods so that their learning is effective and pleasant.

Postponement or cancellation of lessons
Popular Tutors would like our tutors to conduct themselves appropriately, in a professional and ethical manner.

Always deliver a full tuition session, and please do not be late.

After a tutor has made a verbal or written (sms, Whatsapp message, email etc) confirmation to accept the assignment, we would like the tutor to complete at least 4 weeks of lessons. This is in fairness to the student/parent, who chose the tutor with the hope that he/she will support the student’s education journey.

If a postponement is made by the private tutor that resulted in cancellation of lessons, or a cancellation is made by the tutor before 4 weeks of lessons are completed, Popular Tutors will blacklist the tutor, and the commission to Popular Tutors will be adjusted. We will review on a case-by-case basis, and take appropriate action.​

​Cooperation with other tuition agencies
In the event when Popular Tutors is unable to secure a suitable tuition match, Popular Tutors will contact other tuition agencies within our network, with the objective of matching the most qualified tutor with the student.

Why have I not received assignment offers yet?
There could be several reasons why you are not getting a response or successfully confirmed assignments:

Response time
Popular Tutors typically fulfills tuition assignments between 2 to 24 hours after a client has told us their requirements. We then shortlist qualified tutors, and after these prospective tutors reply us, we will show their profiles to the client.

When we contact you, please try to respond quickly, so that we can show your profile to clients.

Incomplete responses
Parents that are given more description and information about your teaching abilities and track record are more likely to hire you, should your credentials be suitable for their children.

When replying Popular Tutors, please be sure to include the information that we have asked for. Typically, we ask for the Job ID, relevant tutoring experience, your rates, and your available timings. Tutors who reply in full are more likely to be successful.

Our coordinators have been very busy
We do have to apologize for this. It might be that we were too busy that day with many tuition assignments and were unable to reply you.

EXPERIENCED TUTORS FOR ACCOUNTING

As long as money makes it go around, the world will need its accountants.

Accounting is the language of business. It is an important analysis tool that provides management with financial information that can be used to lead a business, plan ahead and to make contingency plans.

It provides the most vital information we need to understand how our business grows, makes money, where the profit of a business goes, and what our cash flow is.

If we do not understand the basic principles of Accounting, we cannot run a business, nor can we even hope to help a business grow and profit.

EXPERIENCED TUTORS FOR BIOLOGY

Known as the Natural Science, Biology involves the study of life and living organisms at the molecular and cellular levels.

This includes their chemical and physical structures, functions, development, evolution and interaction with the natural environment.

Students learn about Biology from the time they are in primary school, where Biology is taught as a general science. 

Biology is then progressively taught in secondary school, with all its branches like genetics, anatomy, zoology and botany.

Biology majors learn to be precise, systematic, and detail oriented as they carry out their research and laboratory projects.

The skills that Biology majors acquire can be applied to both scientific and non-scientific jobs after graduation.

Even though some Biological concepts are initially difficult to grasp, the reward in terms of obtaining good grades and a subsequent high-paying career can make all the effort worth it.

EXPERIENCED TUTORS FOR CHEMISTRY

We all do Chemistry every day!

Chemistry affects the food that we eat, the water we drink, the clothes we wear, the air and the medicine/vitamins that we take.

Chemistry explains how soap and shampoo keep us clean, why an egg changes when we fry or boil it, why an autumn leaf turns red and why perfumes smell the way they do.

Chemistry is known as the Central Science.

It bridges other natural sciences like Physics and Mathematics, Biology and Medicine, and the Earth and Geology/Environmental Sciences.

Chemistry is the study of the structure and properties of matter and substances – and the reactions that change them into other substances.

The behavior of atoms, molecules, and ions determines the sort of world we live in, our shapes and sizes, and even how we feel on a given day.

And really, everything (including us) is made out of atoms and chemical compounds.

Even though some Chemistry concepts are initially difficult to grasp, the reward in terms of obtaining good grades and a subsequent high-paying career can make all the effort worth it.

EXPERIENCED TUTORS FOR CHINESE

Scientific trials have found that people who speak more than one language use their brain in different ways.

This can lead to an increase of creative ideas, as the brain is being pushed in different ways than it is otherwise used to.

Currently, many different memory loss recovery techniques are based around visualizations and information simulations that try to access the use of different parts of the brain, as these initiatives seem to be able to help the brain re-ignite itself.

And, studies have shown that Mandarin speakers do use both sides of their brains!

It turns out that even the digital economy needs people who are good with words.

Without a sufficient understanding of words, students cannot communicate effectively with others, and cannot adequately express their own ideas.

EXPERIENCED TUTORS FOR GENERAL PAPER

Every year, just as there are hundreds of students who score As for General Paper at the A Levels, there are also many students who find GP to be difficult.

Papers 1 and 2 are challenging, but it is definitely possible to score distinctions and attain a good pass.

A well-written General Paper essay is imbued with a wide variety of exemplifications that are written by someone who is well-read and is capable of insightful and reflective persuasive writing.

You also need to read, comprehend, infer, summarize and paraphrase sentences from essays written by intellectuals, journalists, scientists, politicians, philosophers and leaders in their respective fields.

Some of what they write may or may not agree with your own value systems. Or, their concepts are totally new (and foreign) to you.

Many students have difficulty with the Application Question at the end of the Comprehension section, because students have to relate the main ideas of the passage to the Singaporean context.

And you have to convincingly argue in your analysis if the thoughts and opinions of the author are relevant, applicable and valid when seen from a local perspective.

One of the ways to excel in General Paper is to have a strong understanding of how our world works.

We need to be familiar with the major disparate issues that affects us all – society, economics, politics, business, history, the arts, the environment and their interrelationships.

General Paper trains us to be precise, systematic, and detail oriented as we carry out our research and case study projects.

The skills that General Paper majors acquire can be applied to diverse corporate/job environments after graduation.

Even though some concepts are initially difficult to grasp, the reward in terms of obtaining good grades and a subsequent high-paying career can make all the effort worth it.

EXPERIENCED TUTORS FOR GEOGRAPHY

Geography has been called “the mother of all Sciences”.

It was one of the first fields of study and academic disciplines that developed as humans sought to find out what was on the other side of the mountain or across the sea. 

Exploration led to discovery of our planet and its amazing resources.

 EXPERIENCED TUTORS FOR HISTORY

History is fascinating because it takes us back into the times of kings, princesses, horses, warriors, geniuses, wars, inventions and discoveries.

We live in the present. We want to plan for and worry about the future.

History, however, is the study of the past.

History is a great subject to study; you just have to take the broader view of what is valuable in your life.

For example, there is scientific evidence that evolution is what has enabled society to transform to its current state.

Can this past evidence be used to determine future evolutions?

This is something that History students have to enquire everyday as they interact with the past.

History is important for young students to learn because it helps them to connect the past with the present and understand the direction that society is taking for the future.

History also helps young learners to understand different cultures.

Even though some History concepts are initially difficult to grasp, the reward in terms of obtaining good grades and a subsequent high-paying career can make all the effort worth it.

EXPERIENCED TUTORS FOR LITERATURE

Cultures are built on stories – histories, myths and legends, fables, and religions.

Literature takes students out of their own lives and lets them experience things that are new and challenging.

It encourages them to imagine possibilities and to think about ways the world could be different.

We expand our horizons through vicarious experiences.

We get to visit new places, gain new experiences, and meet new people.

Literature teaches us about the past as well as the present, and allows us to learn about a variety of cultures, including our own.

Through poems and literary books, we discover the common goals and similar emotions found in people from all times and places.

Few textbooks could be said to do the same thing.

EXPERIENCED TUTORS FOR MATH

Math one of the oldest sciences known to Man.

Mathematics is often referred to as “The Queen of the Sciences”, and uses a great deal of logic and quantitative reasoning.

EXPERIENCED TUTORS FOR  PHYSICS

Because each of the other natural sciences biology, chemistry, geology, material science, medicine, engineering, and others, work with systems which adhere to the laws of physics, physics is often referred to as the “Fundamental Science”.

Approximately 5000 years ago, the Chinese were the first to use magnetic energy. They relied upon the pull of magnetic iron objects to guide navigators and, thanks to the Earth’s magnetic field, point them in the direction of north.

About 2500 years ago, the Greek philosopher Thales was credited with discovering electrical energy. By rubbing fur against a piece of amber, Thales found that dust and other particles clung to the amber with what is known as an electrostatic force.

Physics is the study of the fundamental elements of the universe: energy and matter.

Physics investigates how the universe began, what it consists of, how it changes and according to what rules.

Physicists explore the skies to find distant worlds, and watch changes in the atmosphere to forecast the weather.

They search the ocean floor and beneath it to find minerals, and smash atoms to find energy resources and new methods to diagnose disease.

EXPERIENCED TUTORS FOR SCIENCE

Science is the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical, social, and natural worlds through observation and experimentation.

It is key to innovation, global competitiveness, and human advancement.

It is important that the world continues to advance the field of Science, whether it’s finding new cures for cancer and other diseases or identifying and exploring new galaxies.

The process of Science is a way of building knowledge about the universe – constructing new ideas that illuminate and improve the world around us.

Like anywhere around the world, the main branches of Science taught in Singapore secondary schools are Physics, Chemistry and Biology.

Students are able to choose their own Science specializations when in upper secondary, and they learn General Science in primary school and lower secondary school.

Take a look at the wide range of careers that we have listed on this page, and you will agree that having a strong background in Science is very useful.

EXPERIENCED TUTORS FOR THE TAMIL LANGUAGE

The Tamil language has an estimated history of more than 3000 years.

Tamil had a well-defined grammatical treatise named “Tholkappiyam” even 2500 years ago.

The maturity and finesse of this oldest literary work indicates that Tamil literature has even longer history than estimated.

Tamil literature is also a part of curriculum of many international universities. Tamil is the first language of the state of Tamil Nadu and the union territory Pondicherry in India.

There is a significant amount of Tamil population in Sri Lanka, Malaysia and Singapore. There are large communities of Tamil speakers in many other countries like Indonesia, United Kingdom, Canada, Mauritius, Australia, USA, London, and South Africa.

To connect with this massive market of over 80 million Tamil speakers worldwide, knowing and use of some Tamil will certainly brighten the prospects of boosting your career and social network.

Many scholars and linguists learn Tamil literature because of its richness and variety.

HERE ARE SOME OF THE MANY REVIEWS AND FEEDBACK THAT WE RECEIVED 

Teacher Alan boosted my confidence for Science and he taught me skills to be much calmer during the tests and exams. I can do this because I now know what to do for each section of the papers.
Mrs Kong has taught me a lot on how to correctly answer the exam questions in order to score.
Many of my tutor’s methods are beyond what is covered in school and they are really useful for scoring for the exams.
The methods that Mr Yeo taught me have helped me to zoom in on the actual points that I need to focus on when I answer the exam questions.

CAREFUL AND PROFESSIONAL TUTOR MATCHING, BY POPULAR TUTORS

 

Talk to our friendly and professional coordinators – all of whom are graduates from NUS, NTU and SMU. They each did very well when they themselves were in primary and secondary school, and at JC.

Their bosses – the joint-heads of our tutor interview team – had taught at MOE schools.

POPULAR TUTORS – THE TUITION EXPERTS

Popular Tutors therefore has the expertise to decide if the tutors who applied for your assignment have the aptitude, qualifications and ability to teach your child.

We will carefully assess and short-list several suitable home tutors that best match your requirements and budget.

All the tutors we recommend to you are individually and personally interviewed by our tuition coordinators who each have at least 3 years of matching experience.

These coordinators were previously tutors themselves in the subjects you are hiring a tutor for, so the screening process to find the right tutor for you is very effective.

The quality of our private tutors gives you a strong academic advantage over your peers, firmly establishing Popular Tutors as the best private tuition agency in Singapore

Our results speak for themselves.

GETTING GOOD GRADES IS NOT DIFFICULT

Parents often approach us with one common problem – despite spending many hours studying hard, their children are not able to achieve the targeted grades. Even though the students take careful notes and memorize the prescribed text, the grades remain weak.

This happens because answering exam questions requires knowledge of the most important concepts, and having the right technique of answering them.

Our experienced tutors are familiar with the exam marking schemes and can teach you how to identify key information, retain essential knowledge and be highly skilled at applying the content even when the questions are unexpectedly difficult.

We help you develop a fresh perspective and clearer understanding of seemingly complex principles.

Hundreds of students these recent months have achieved improved grades because of our tutors.

And if they can, so can you!

WE ARE CONFIDENT THAT YOUR GRADES WILL IMPROVE

The MOE requires that from Primary 1 onwards, that you are able to solve higher order problems, apply the knowledge you have accumulated in class, analyze quantitative and qualitative data, and then structure and present your answers.

Without each – and all – of these skills, students will not be allowed to pass well.

It is therefore very important for you to clearly understand what the exam question requires you to answer.

RELIABLE TUITION TEACHERS FROM POPULAR TUTORS

Your tutor will teach you how to avoid the deadly mistakes that cause the difference between getting an A or Fail grade.

You will learn how to use principles and concepts that are within the syllabus and apply them in a logical, reasoned or deductive manner to a novel situation.

NO MORE NASTY EXAM SHOCKS

Many students lose precious marks because they misunderstood the real intent of the questions.

Our private tutors will help you uncover the hidden and obvious requirements of exam questions.

You will learn how to construct solid answers containing crystal clear reasoning and logic – which of course is what the exam grader wants to see before he/she can give you higher marks. It is not quantity but quality that matters.

HIRING THE RIGHT TUTOR IS VERY IMPORTANT

In the Singaporean education system, it is the grades that you get after every test and exam that will determine your entry into the next level.

It isn’t as simple as just practicing more past year exam papers.

The MOE has structured the curriculum such that each chapter has a range of content and questions that test different skills.

The difference between a top scorer and an average student lies in the ability to integrate and apply these skills.

That’s what gives the “A” students a huge advantage over the rest of the cohort.

SAFER TO BE OVER-PREPARED THAN UNDER-PREPARED

Are you sufficiently prepared to achieve the grade you are targeting, or do you sometimes feel lost?

It has been often proven that the actual exam questions require application answers that were never taught nor mentioned during school lessons.

School teachers are also known to help students “spot topics”, which at times result in a rude surprise when topics that were not “spotted” come up during the major national exams like the PSLE, GCE O Levels, and the GCE A Levels.

Standards of practice questions may also differ from the actual exam questions.

When preparing for your tests and exams, the sheer amount of information to read and understanding is intimidating.

At times, school teachers also rush through content too quickly, making it difficult for students to thoroughly grasp the concepts.

Our tutors ensure that you are equipped with a deep understanding of every crucial topic before you enter the school’s examination hall.

THE BEST TYPE OF TUTORS

Experienced and reliable tutors will help you prepare comprehensive notes so that basic concepts can be strengthened, according to your own learning style.

We will crystallize the key points of every single chapter through easily-relatable analogies.

You can then quickly retain the information and apply correctly at your exams.

You will learn how to correctly state and explain; describe and convince.

No more spending hours going through textbooks, trying to summarize facts all by yourself.

TAKE A SHORT CUT AND GET AN A

You may choose to figure out the concepts on your own and face the tendency of giving up midway when challenges you are unable to solve start to appear.

Alternatively, you can choose to learn from some of the most experienced private tutors in Singapore who have a proven track record in helping students attain the results they truly deserve.

Save time by learning the correct techniques, and gain invaluable examination tips within a short period.

DO YOU NEED TUITION?

Almost all of your classmates have tuition, whether or not they admit it.

These are some likely signs that private tuition will be useful:

  1. It is difficult to correctly answer “application questions”
  2. You pay attention in class, and study hard. Yet, during tests and exams, you are shocked by the questions because you are frequently tested on content you had not been taught before
  3. You are spending so much time studying one subject that you have little time left to study the many other subjects
  4. The school teacher keeps making remarks that your answers are off-point
  5. Despite your interest in the subject, your grades are stagnant and an improvement in performance has been difficult
  6. Increasingly, the content is getting too complex to understand. The syllabus is getting overwhelming, and lessons are going too fast for you to catch up with
  7. You want to pursue a career in this field, and this subject is a main component that you need to score a strong A in, so that you can have a competitive advantage

Whether you are a student who is currently barely passing and looking to be able to consistently pass – or if you’re already doing well and looking to top your class/cohort, you are guaranteed to a tutor that fits your requirements.
