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.

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.

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.

THOUSANDS OF COMMITTED AND EXPERIENCED SCIENCE TUTORS FOR YOU TO CHOOSE FROM

We show you profiles of experienced Science tutors only if they have proven track records in helping students’ grades improve.

SINGAPORE’S LARGEST PRIVATE TUITION AGENCY

 

We are Singapore’s largest private tuition agency – with over 37,000 shortlisted and reliable tutors for you to choose from.

Popular Tutors retains tutors in our database only if they have actual track records in improving their students’ grades.

We managed to grow to this size because parents and tutors trust us to make the most suitable tuition matches.

BEST TUITION AGENCY THAT HAS THOUSANDS OF EXPERIENCED SCIENCE TUTORS

Popular Tutors is the best Science tuition agency in Singapore.

We have over 6,000 qualified and competent Science tutors. They specialize in teaching only Science.

LEARN FROM RELIABLE, COMMITTED SCIENCE TUTORS

If you want a tutor for Sec 1 Science, we will show you profiles of experienced Science tutors who had taught Sec 1 Science, using the latest MOE syllabus, exam formats, marking schemes, and requirements.

The reliable Science tutors whose profiles we show to you are carefully selected by us because they have proven track records of helping students meet and exceed the requirements of school and national-level exams.

They will help you with your homework, assignments and projects, revision, and exam preparation.

CAREFUL AND EFFECTIVE MATCHING OF EXPERIENCED SCIENCE TUTORS

Popular Tutors can be effective in matching reliable and experienced Science tutors because we have a trained tuition coordinator who majored in Science at university-level, in our tutor matching team.

Our tutor interviewers are graduates from the 3 major local universities and had attended the best junior colleges and secondary schools.

The joint-heads of our tutor matching team had worked at MOE schools.

FAST, RELIABLE MATCHING OF EXPERIENCED SCIENCE TUTORS

On average, within 24 hours, we are able to show you between 3 to 8 profiles of the most competent and experienced Science tutors whose qualifications match your tuition requirements and budget.

LEARN SCIENCE THE EASY – AND CORRECT – WAY

The quality of our experienced Science tutors gives students a strong edge over their peers, firmly establishing Popular Tutors as the most reliable private tuition agency in Singapore.

We have Singapore’s largest team of experienced Science tutors, with proven track records to help you score higher grades.

QUALIFIED EXPERIENCED SCIENCE TUTORS

Our experienced Science tutors are undergraduates or have graduated from the top local and overseas universities.

IMPORTANCE OF HIRING QUALIFIED EXPERIENCED SCIENCE TUTORS

Choosing truly qualified and experienced Science tutors is important – to ensure that the information that they teach you is correct.

If the Science tutors themselves did not manage to score an A for Science, would they be able to teach you any proven ways to achieve an A?

TRUST ONLY COMPETENT AND EXPERIENCED SCIENCE TUTORS WITH PROVEN TRACK RECORDS

Some tutors quote the same or lower rates even though they scored only a B in the subject that they teach you.

If they can’t score an A themselves, will they be able to guide you properly?

SAFELY HIRE EXPERIENCED SCIENCE TUTORS

It is not worth taking a risk to learn the wrong information from irresponsible tutors, and then find that you need to spend the next few weeks or months having to “un-learn” the wrong information.

DIFFERENT MOE SCHOOLS TEACH SCIENCE DIFFERENTLY

The breadth and depth to which content is taught is known to vary across different schools, as teachers in each school are expected to tailor their lessons according to the learning needs and skills gaps of the students that they teach.

EXPERIENCED SCIENCE TUTORS USE THE LATEST MOE SYLLABUS AND PROVEN TEACHING METHODS

The MOE establishes the learning outcomes that it expects from the syllabus that it recommends.

The latest MOE syllabus and exams requires students to solve real-life and complex theoretical problems, rather than allowing students to simply recall information, or look up someone else’s answer to the question.

EVERY SCHOOL TEACHER IS EXPECTED TO TEACH THE SAME CONTENT DIFFERENTLY

With the emphasis on nurturing students who can think and apply their knowledge, every teacher needs to teach according to the learning capacity of the students in the classes they are allocated to.

This can also mean that teachers within the same school and from other schools are likely to teach according to what they themselves think are necessarily related to the syllabus and the national exams.

EXAM RISK

Some parents and students might view this as a risk, and that they will end up “spotting” the wrong topics – or worse, be underprepared for important exams.

MANY STUDENTS RECEIVE NASTY SHOCKS WHEN THEY TAKE EXAMS

Every year, hundreds of students complain about how difficult it is to score well in Science, and how they sometimes find it hard to catch up with what is taught in class.

Actually, it is a fact that students will be tested on Science material they have not been taught before.

REDUCE THE RISK THAT YOU ARE UNDER-PREPARED FOR EXAMS

Your experienced Science tutor will show you how to extract information from your syllabus so that you can apply them in a logical, reasoned or deductive manner, even in unfamiliar situations.

This means that even if your Science teacher in school has not taught the answers to the exams, that your experienced Science tutor will have taught you the skills to calmly think through the (horrifying and unexpected) question and arrive at the correct answer.

EXPERT AND EXPERIENCED SCIENCE TUTORS

Our experienced Science tutors would have themselves scored an A, and the students that they had tutored in Science have achieved grade improvements after they started teaching them.

ANSWER DIFFICULT SCIENCE QUESTIONS – CORRECTLY

Good experienced Science tutors will be able to deconstruct complex content, uncover hidden meanings in the Science curriculum, and teach you strategic ways to answer exam questions – helping you to get that A.

It is easy.

And we want to help you succeed.

YOU CAN BE CONFIDENT, EVEN WHEN OTHER STUDENTS PANIC

These unexpectedly difficult questions can range from 20% to over 50% of all the exam questions during CA, SA and the important national exams.

You yourself might have been stunned by the type of questions that are on your exam sheets – you had never learnt this material before in school!

THE IMPORTANCE OF 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.

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.

LEARNING SCIENCE

Science is the pre-requisite to some of the most sought-after university courses such as Medicine, Pharmacy, Dentistry, and Chemical Engineering.

Learning Science is like any new skill. There is a learning curve, and the skill needs to be practiced and reinforced, in order for it to be effective.

Those of us who are born as right-brain thinkers tend to be better at creative, imaginative, passionate activities.

Then there are those of us who are left-brain thinkers, and we are naturally adept at working with numbers, applying logical reasoning, and analytically solving problems.

Regardless of which category you fall into, the truth is that anyone can learn the basic principles of Science and score well in your exams.

Do you find it difficult to score good marks in Science?

Does it often happen that you don’t get good marks in Science even after putting in your best preparation efforts?

There is no need to be distressed because you are not alone. There are many students who find that Science is difficult.

HIRE AN EXPERIENCED SCIENCE TUTOR TODAY, TO HELP YOUR GRADES IMPROVE

We have Singapore’s largest team of over 6,000 experienced Science tutors for every academic level – at Primary School and Secondary School.

Finding the ideal experienced Science tutors does not have to be stressful, or randomly left to chance.

Our tutors will make this seemingly abstract subject much easier to grasp and understand.

SCIENCE IS FUN, WHEN TAUGHT BY FUN AND EXPERIENCED SCIENCE TUTORS

Sure, studying Science can be a challenge at times. The content can be difficult, and just like any other subject, you need to study hard to do well.

But Science can be an incredibly fun subject when you give it a chance.

There are many discoveries waiting for the right young scientist to make them.

The world today provides a big platform for students who choose a career in Science.

A PROMISING CAREER IN SCIENCE 

Everybody needs to earn money so that they can fund their lifestyle and financial commitments.

When choosing the next step in our careers, we want to look for jobs that are meaningful and challenging.

It is also important to look at the career prospects and the lifestyle we want to live.

Study Science well, and there’s a good chance you’ll find yourself working for an established company with clear career progression.

When you do well in your Science exams, you are building a strong foundation for your career options.

A world of exciting prospects awaits you.

EMPLOYERS’ REQUIREMENTS FOR SCIENCE JOBS

Global change is creating enormous challenges relating to Science knowledge and practices. These challenges offer excellent future opportunities to people who study Science.

Employers are actively looking for university graduates who can adapt – and thrive – in this time of tremendous change and upheaval.

It is often observed that today’s graduates – unlike the graduates of a generation ago – should anticipate not a single position with one employer or in one industry, but rather many careers.

You will be well prepared for this future if, in your post-secondary years, you take advantage of the opportunity to become broadly educated, to learn to be flexible and to be a creative problem solver.

CAREER OPTIONS IN SCIENCE

Most of the careers that exist today didn’t exist 10 or 15 years ago. This means our students are preparing for a world that we cannot even imagine. 

For anyone with creativity, intelligence, and persistence, Science will never fail to provide new and exciting challenges—and lots of fun!

In the following list of possible careers, a Science major provides a strong foundation and may offer an edge over other individuals who lack a background in Science:

Biomedical Engineering

Cloud Architect

Doctor

Dentist

Earth and Environmental Science

Mobile Application Developer

Software Engineer

Web Developer

It’s clear that jobs for Science majors are abundantly available across a wide range of industries.

In addition, the more a Science major can link their theoretical studies to real-world applications, the better they will be able to apply such knowledge once they start work.

As you can see, there’s no limit to what you can do with a Science degree.

Only your effort and imagination will determine how far you take it!

The more able you are to synthesize your Science knowledge into real-world problem solving, the better.

Are you ready to take the first step toward a rewarding and satisfying career?

PRACTICAL USES OF SCIENCE

“When am I ever going to use this?”

Even if you see yourself pursuing a professional career in another field, it could be worth your while to start by studying Science.

The world is increasingly being shaped by science and technology.

It’s not always obvious that Science shapes our daily lives, but the fact is science impacts countless decisions we make each day.

From managing our health and well-being, choosing paper over plastic at the supermarket, or answering a child who asks why the grass is green, Science has an important role in our lives.

Beyond the potential scientific breakthroughs, there are individual benefits to learning Science, such as developing our ability to ask questions, collect information, organize and test our ideas, solve problems, and apply what we learn.

Some people use the reasoning that they are “not good at analysis” to explain their reluctance to study Science. But the analysis that is actually involved is rather basic.

To do well in Science requires jumping in with both feet.

Having one foot in and one foot out doesn’t work.

At the beginning of the semester, regardless of your personal interests or dislikes, decide that you’re going to give Science your best effort.

Do this and you’ll do well in your Science exams.

We wish you all the best in your journey of learning and personal growth.
