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.

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.

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.

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:

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.

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
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.

This FAQ Page is intended to supplement and simplify our Terms of Service for our clients and home tutors and is not intended for legal reference. Some explanations may not be in full detail. For full information, please contact us.

Reviews And Feedback From Parents

Ms Tan was very detailed in her explanation and this helped me tremendously when I was preparing for my A Level exams. She is thorough and explains everything very clearly. I was able to have a good pass at A Levels, even though I had failed every GP exam before I started tuition with her.

General Paper student Anglo Chinese Junior College
I now have a much better understanding of what was really required for the exams. Learnt content that wasn’t covered in school and that topic came up for the O Levels. You have no idea how relieved my parents and I felt when I was able to answer confidently. I scored an A.

Daisy Tan
Physics student St Margaret’s Secondary School
My P3 son was doing well in Primary 1 and 2. Then he had quite a bit of difficulty in coping when there was a change in school teachers. We hired a tutor, but that didn’t work too. I am so glad that Popular Tutors has such a large team working for you and within 6 hours, we could identify and hire this tutor.

Xavier Chia
Father of P3 English student Townsville Primary School
Most of my answers are now correct for the comprehension section. In the past, I couldn’t even get half of the questions correct. I was doing well in Secondary 1 and 2, but things worsened when I started in Secondary 3. Thank goodness my dad hired Mr Tan, who helped me so much in English.

Hire The correct tutor to help your grades improve

Popular Tutors offers an extensive range of responsible tutors, so do free to select from the choices that best suit your needs


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.


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.


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.


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!


If you’re the analytical type, fascinated by the world around you, then an Economics major might be a good choice for you.

A degree in Economics can be used in many areas, including public policy and finance.

You can use an Economics degree to study industry trends, labor markets, the prospects for individual companies, and the forces that drive the economy.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


About 1.5 billion people around the world speak English whether as their native language or as a foreign language, and this number is still growing.

Globally however, 5.5 billion people don’t speak any English at all.

The two biggest economies in Southeast Asia are Indonesia and Malaysia.

Should you wish to do trade and business in these countries, knowing how to speak the language is a huge advantage.

There are more than 230 million speakers of both Bahasa Melayu and Bahasa Indonesia in our region, making it among the top 10 most spoken languages in the world.

Its native speakers extend up to Brunei, Southern Thailand, Singapore, Sri Lanka and the Sulu archipelago in the Philippines.


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.

As a result, Mathematics has applications in numerous other subjects.

In fact, many other subjects rely so heavily on Mathematics that their most important questions are, fundamentally, Math problems.


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.


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.


The theme of “Being Rooted and Living Global” runs through the entire Social Studies syllabus.

Social Studies is the integrated study of the social sciences and humanities – to promote civic competence.

In many countries – Singapore included – the Social Studies content that is taught in schools provides coordinated and systematic knowledge. Globally, Social Studies draws upon disciplines that include anthropology, archaeology, economics, geography, history, law, philosophy, political science, psychology, religion, and sociology, as well as appropriate content from the humanities, mathematics, and natural sciences.


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.
