SINGAPORE’S LEADING PRIVATE TUITION AGENCY

HOW DO I REQUEST FOR A TUTOR?

You can request for a tutor by submitting our online Request Form.

Upon receiving your request, we will Whatsapp you to discuss your child’s academic needs. We will spend the next few hours shortlisting several suitable tutors within our database and network for your consideration.

Our working hours are from 9am to 9pm, seven days a week.

Tuition usually commences within one week after you have selected a tutor.

TRIAL LESSON

The paid trial lessons can be 1.5 hours or 2 hours per session.

CAN I CHANGE THE TUTOR AFTER THE TUITION BEGINS?

You just need to pay for the tuition session(s) that have been conducted. There will not be any extra charges for the change.

AM I ABLE TO VIEW THE TUTOR’S CERTIFICATES BEFORE THE FIRST LESSON?

You can request to see the hardcopies of certificates of your tutor to be presented to you during the first lesson.

The client acknowledges that it is his/her responsibility to verify the suitability, credentials and qualifications of any tutor with whom he/she engages.

HOW MUCH DO I PAY FOR YOUR TUTOR MATCHING SERVICES?

The Best In Singapore is Singapore’s leading private tuition agency and our matching service is free for students/parents requesting for tutors. This is because our agency commission is charged to the tutor, not to you.

The client will pay to The Best In Singapore half of the fees payable in the first 4 calendar weeks. This amount is the commission to The Best In Singapore for matching the tutor to the client, and will be borne by the tutor.

Thereafter, the client will pay the tuition fees directly to the tutor.

If lessons are postponed during the first two weeks, the commission payable to The Best In Singapore will be based on the tuition session conducted the subsequent week(s).

The tutor shall collect all fees due to the tutor from the parent after the two weeks. The Best In Singapore will not assist in any recovery of fees.

PAYMENT OF FEES

The client is required to pay tuition fees only for the number of hours of lessons given by the tutor.

If you decide to stop the tuition after the first lesson, you are required to pay for only that lesson.

Please transfer the fee for that lesson to The Best In Singapore and we will transfer the tutor’s fee to him/her.

Tutors are not authorized at any time to collect the payment on The Best In Singapore’s behalf.

Tuition fees are to be paid every 4 weeks to the tutor, unless otherwise agreed between the client and the tutor.

PAYMENT MODE

We will provide our bank account information for you to make payment via internet banking or ATM transfer directly to The Best In Singapore’s bank account.

If the client fails to pay us, The Best In Singapore reserves the right to terminate the Assignment. This is in fairness to the tutor, who might need to give the available slot to another client if this Assignment does not materialize.

Once the payment is received, it will be acknowledged in the form of a receipt, issued to the payer (Parent/Requestor/Guardian) via Whatsapp, sms, email or other electronic communications medium. We will also provide details of the Tuition Assignment that can include: tutor’s name, hourly fee, date of commencement of tuition, subject(s), level, duration of each lesson and frequency, etc.

FIRST LESSON

Once the client accepts the tutor’s candidacy, the client will not be able to change the schedule of the First Lesson.

Clients are allowed to make changes in the schedule after the First Lesson is over. However, The Best In Singapore hopes that this is not necessary as the tutor has already reserved that slot of time for you.

If you want to make changes in the schedule, please consult with your tutor to ask if he/she is able to change the schedule or not.

The tutor is to bring his/her identity document, academic transcripts/certificates and relevant documents for the First Lesson for verification purposes.

If the tutor is unable to conduct the First Lesson of a tuition assignment, the tutor must call The Best In Singapore at least 3 business days before the actual lesson. If the tutor fails to notify The Best In Singapore of his/her cancellation/postponement, an administrative charge of S$30 will be imposed on him/her.

If the tutor fails to contact The Best In Singapore with a valid reason to inform us about the tutor’s absence from the lesson, the tutor’s profile at The Best In Singapore may be blacklisted. This will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

LOCATION OF TUTORING LESSONS

Tutors will conduct lessons at the student’s residence unless otherwise specified and agreed upon by both the client and the tutor.

If the client has a request for the tuition to be conducted at another location (eg a friend’s home), The Best In Singapore will ask if the tutor is able to accommodate the request.

The Best In Singapore and the tutor will not be responsible if the given location is occupied or not available for use for the lessons and the officially scheduled timings will still be counted as a paid lesson.

TUTOR REASSIGNMENT OR CANCELLATION OF ASSIGNMENTS

There is no obligation or contract to complete a fixed number of lessons, except for the First Lesson.

If at any time the client is not satisfied with the tutor, the client may request a replacement or termination. However, the client is responsible for paying the fee for the number of lessons given prior to termination.

The Best In Singapore will discuss separately with the client and the tutor regarding future tuition arrangements, and The Best In Singapore will change the tutor for the client. There will not be any extra charges for the change and the client needs to pay just for the tuition session(s) that have been conducted.

If the client cancels a tutoring assignment before the tutor completes the agreed number of lessons for the first 4 calendar weeks, The Best In Singapore assumes full claim to 50% of the tuition fees for the total number of lessons delivered in the month. For example, if the client had requested for 8 lessons per month, but the assignment was cancelled after the 5th session, The Best In Singapore will be paid pro-rated commission for the 5 lessons conducted.

The Best In Singapore will not be liable for any payment charges or issues arising from the cancellation of tuition assignments by the client.

If the client terminates the Assignment because the tutor is often late, skips lessons without valid explanations etc, the tutor will bear The Best In Singapore’s full commission fee.

If the tutor cancels the Assignment after confirming acceptance (that is, the client’s contact information and address have been given to the tutor), the tutor will need to compensate the commission which amounts to 50% of the fees payable (as stated in the confirmation Whatsapp, sms, email or other forms of electronic communications messages) for the first 4 weeks.

If the tutor wishes to cancel a Tuition Assignment before the end of the first 4 calendar weeks, the tutor is to inform both The Best In Singapore as well as the client at least 3 days before the next lesson date. The Best In Singapore will recover our legal share of the one-time commission of 50% of the fee for the first 4 calendar weeks from the tutor. Tutors are encouraged to have a long-term commitment as the clients have vested their trust in them.

TERMINATION

The tutor will receive full or pro-rated payment for the number of lessons rendered, provided the tutor has complied with the Terms of this Agreement.

The client has the right to terminate the tuition if the tutor is unable to produce the documents certifying his/her credentials. In such cases, the tutor has to pay The Best In Singapore the amount of money equivalent to the tuition fee for the day, as commission.

Welcome To The Best In Singapore - Home Tuition Division

Hello 🙂 I am Amelia Lee, PhD – Princeton University, Materials Science Engineering.

I am one of the co-founders of The Best In Singapore, and I lead our Education Division comprising over 31,000 of Singapore’s most qualified and experienced home tutors.

Since 2012, we have established a strong track record of helping our students achieve better grades. You have probably heard about us from your school teachers, classmates, relatives or colleagues.

Getting into a good school and maintaining good grades is important for anyone who wants to do well in their chosen career – whether you plan to eventually work in Singapore, Asia, Europe or the United States.

Exams now require students to be able to remember large chunks of information, analyze complicated scenarios and then come up with appropriate answers.

The easier part of all these important tasks is probably the memorization of content from your textbooks. It certainly is more challenging to be able to correctly develop your higher-order thinking skills. Once you can do this, you will then need to apply the analyses are required by the increasingly difficult exam questions. Your school teachers are very good, but they are sometimes too busy to answer every question that you have.

In order to consistently achieve higher grades, you need appropriate guidance from exceptional home tutors who:

  1. Have proven track records of guiding their students to better understand and apply the complex information 
  2. Help you avoid careless mistakes
  3. Can identify what the exam questions really want you to do
  4. Are are able to give you valuable strategies to answer difficult exam questions

Choose tutors with proven track records today, so that your grades will improve in time for the coming major exams.

Good Reviews By Parents & Students
Comments and feedback of the results of hiring professional home tutors from The Best In Singapore

chemistry tuition

For a while, I thought Chemistry was OK. Then, I realized that my classmates were scoring higher marks than I was. I started doubting my ability to get good grades for my O Levels. I practiced and studied quite hard by myself, but the results were still not as good as everyone else. Ms Theresa used to teach at a famous tuition centre for many years. I am lucky to have found her through The Best In Singapore. She told me she works only with The Best In Singapore. My grades improved from B's to A's and I got an A for my O Levels.

Stanley Cheong
Catholic High School

My aunt is a senior pharmacist. I thought I would do well in Chem also, because I scored an A for my O Levels. Maybe it's because the JC syllabus for Chem is harder, maybe it's because all the other subjects are more difficult. Maybe it's just me not being able to cope at JC. Mr Henry has been teaching JC Chem for 15 years. He knows what I need to focus on, and how to come up with the right analysis. He knows the important exam techniques.

Wenqi Soh
Anglo-Chinese Junior College

chemistry tuition

IP Chemistry is probably more difficult than what is taught in the Express stream and JC. My classmates are all very bright and can understand quickly. I have been scoring A's for all my other subjects, and get the occasional B for Chem. Not good enough. Mr Wei Jie has a Master's in Chemistry (Bachelor's in Chemical Engineering) and he mainly teaches IP and IB students. He knows the demanding pace that we are expected to perform at, and has been very very helpful. I scored an A for my A Levels.

Yvette Wong
National Junior College

After I failed twice in Sec 3, my parents decided that I need a good tutor. I was having difficulty in grasping the more important stuff, and could not understand what the questions actually wanted me to do. Fortunately I started tuition with Mr Gan early in Sec 3. This gave me enough time to catch up and revise for my O Levels. I got a B, and it's a big achievement for me considering where I first started.

7 bring together knowledge, principles, concepts and skills from different areas of chemistry, and apply them in a particular context
8 evaluate information and hypotheses
9 construct arguments to support hypotheses or to justify a course of action
10 demonstrate an awareness of the limitations of chemistry theories and models.

These Assessment Objectives cannot be precisely specified in the syllabus content because questions testing such skills may be based on information which is unfamiliar to the candidate.

In answering such questions, candidates are required to use principles and concepts that are within the syllabus and apply them in a logical, reasoned or deductive manner to a novel situation.

Questions testing these objectives will often begin with one of the following words: predict, suggest, construct, calculate or determine.

SCHEME OF ASSESSMENT
Candidates will take a 2 h 30 min paper (100 marks total). This paper consists of two sections and will include
questions that require candidates to integrate knowledge and understanding from different sections in the
syllabus.

Section A (60 marks)
This section will consist of a variable number of compulsory free response questions including 1 or 2 stimulusbased questions. The stimulus-based question(s) constitute(s) 15–20 marks for this paper.

Section B (40 marks)
Candidates will be required to answer two out of three free response questions. Each question will carry 20 marks.”

AIMS
These are not listed in order of priority.

The aims are to:
1. provide, through well-designed studies of experimental and practical chemistry, a worthwhile educational experience for all students, whether or not they go on to study science beyond this level and, in particular, to enable them to acquire sufficient understanding and knowledge to:
1.1 become confident citizens in a technological world, able to take or develop an informed interest in matters of scientific importance
1.2 recognise the usefulness, and limitations, of scientific methods and models and to appreciate their applicability in other disciplines and in everyday life
1.3 be suitably prepared for studies beyond Ordinary Level in chemistry, in applied sciences or in science-related courses.
2. develop abilities and skills that:
2.1 are relevant to the study and practice of science
2.2 are useful in everyday life
2.3 encourage efficient and safe practice
2.4 encourage effective communication. 
3. develop attitudes relevant to science such as
3.1 accuracy and precision
3.2 objectivity
3.3 integrity
3.4 inquiry
3.5 initiative
3.6 inventiveness.
4. stimulate interest in and care for the local and global environment.
5. promote an awareness that:
5.1 the study and practice of science are co-operative and cumulative activities, and are subject to social, economic, technological, ethical and cultural influences and limitations
5.2 the applications of science may be both beneficial and detrimental to the individual, the community and the environment
5.3 science transcends national boundaries and that the language of science, correctly and rigorously applied, is universal
5.4 the use of information technology is important for communications, as an aid to experiments and as a tool for interpretation of experimental and theoretical results.

ASSESSMENT OBJECTIVES
A Knowledge with Understanding
Candidates should be able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding in relation to:
1. scientific phenomena, facts, laws, definitions, concepts, theories
2. scientific vocabulary, terminology, conventions (including symbols, quantities and units contained in ‘Signs, Symbols and Systematics 16–19’, Association for Science Education, 2000)
3. scientific instruments and apparatus, including techniques of operation and aspects of safety
4. scientific quantities and their determination
5. scientific and technological applications with their social, economic and environmental implications.
The subject content defines the factual knowledge that candidates may be required to recall and explain. Questions testing those objectives will often begin with one of the following words: define, state, describe, explain or outline.

B Handling Information and Solving Problems
Candidates should be able (in words or by using symbolic, graphical and numerical forms of presentation) to:
1. locate, select, organise and present information from a variety of sources
2. translate information from one form to another
3. manipulate numerical and other data
4. use information to identify patterns, report trends and draw inferences
5. present reasoned explanations for phenomena, patterns and relationships
6. make predictions and propose hypotheses
7. solve problems.
These assessment objectives cannot be precisely specified in the subject content because questions testing these objectives may be based on information which is unfamiliar to the candidates. In answering such questions, candidates are required to use principles and concepts that are within the syllabus and apply them in a logical, reasoned or deductive manner to a novel situation. Questions testing these objectives will often begin.

C Experimental Skills and Investigations
Candidates should be able to:
1. follow a sequence of instructions
2. use techniques, apparatus and materials
3. make and record observations, measurements and estimates
4. interpret and evaluate observations and experimental results
5. plan investigations, select techniques, apparatus and materials
6. evaluate methods and suggest possible improvements.

Weighting of Assessment Objectives

Theory Papers (Papers 1 and 2)
A Knowledge with Understanding, approximately 45% of the marks with approximately 15% allocated to recall.
B Handling Information and Solving Problems, approximately 55% of the marks.

Practical Assessment (Paper 3)
Paper 3 will assess appropriate aspects of assessment objectives C1 to C6 in the following skill areas:
• Planning (P)
• Manipulation, measurement and observation (MMO)
• Presentation of data and observations (PDO)
• Analysis, conclusions and evaluation (ACE)
The assessment of Planning (P) will have a weighting of 15%. The assessment of skill areas MMO, PDO and ACE will have a weighting of 85%.

SCHEME OF ASSESSMENT
Candidates are required to enter for Papers 1, 2 and 3.

Theory Papers
Paper 1 (1 h, 40 marks)
This paper consists of 40 compulsory multiple choice items.
A copy of the Periodic Table of Elements will be printed as part of this Paper.

Paper 2 (1 h 45 min, 80 marks)
This paper consists of two sections.
Section A will carry 50 marks and consists of a variable number of compulsory structured questions.
Section B will carry 30 marks and consists of three questions. The first two questions are compulsory questions, one of which will be a data-based question requiring candidates to interpret, evaluate or solve problems using a stem of information. This question will carry 8–12 marks.
The last question will be presented in an either/or form and will carry 10 marks. A copy of the Periodic Table of Elements will be printed as part of this Paper.

Practical Assessment
Paper 3 (1h 50 min, 40 marks)
This paper consists of a variable number of compulsory practical questions.
One, or more, of the questions may incorporate assessment of Planning (P) and require candidates to apply and integrate knowledge and understanding from different sections of the syllabus. The assessment of PDO and ACE may include questions on data-analysis which do not require practical equipment and apparatus. Candidates are not allowed to refer to notebooks, textbooks or any other information during the assessment.

A copy of the Notes for Qualitative Analysis will be printed as part of this Paper.

General "A" Level Entry Requirements

For the most current and more comprehensive information, please refer to the NTU website.

“If you are applying using the Singapore-Cambridge GCE ‘A’ level Examination in the English medium, you need to obtain the following:

  • at least two passes in subjects at H2 level and attempted General Paper (GP) or Knowledge & Inquiry (KI) in the same sitting;
  • meet one of the following Mother Tongue Language (MTL) requirement:
    • a minimum of ‘S’ grade in H1 MTL or General Studies in Chinese or H2 Mother Tongue Language & Literature (MTLL) taken at ‘A’ level; or
    • pass in MTL ‘B’ syllabus taken at ‘A’ level; or
    • a minimum of D7 in Higher MTL taken at ‘O’ level; or
    • an MOE-approved MTL-in-lieu; or
    • an MOE-approved MTL-exemption


A Mother Tongue subject (Chinese/Malay/Tamil) taken at a separate sitting of the GCE ‘A’ level examination is acceptable for purpose of admission.  H1 non-Tamil Indian Language (Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Punjabi and Urdu) or H1 Foreign Language (French, German, Japanese) may be taken in lieu of MTL.

Candidates who do not satisfy the MTL requirement may still submit an application for admissions.  If selected, he/she will be admitted on a provisional basis.  During their course of study, they will be required to meet the minimum MTL requirement before they are allowed to graduate.

Minimum Subject Requirements
To be eligible for a programme, you need to satisfy its subject requirement. 

Computation of University Score
In computing the University Score, the University will take into consideration the following:

  • General Paper (GP) or Knowledge & Inquiry (KI)
  • Project Work
  • Best four content-based subjects (i.e. 3 H2 and 1 H1 content-based subjects, of which one must be a contrasting subject. Students may take KI in lieu of GP.  KI is considered a H2 subject and can be considered as a contrasting subject to both Arts and Science.  Students who take KI need not take a H1 content-based subject. 

A H1 subject will be counted as half of a H2 in terms of points computation.

MTL may be included in the computation of the University Score. The better of the two scores (i.e. with and without MTL) will be the University Score of the candidate.

SAT is not required for applicants presenting A-level certificates.

Meeting the minimum admission requirements does not indicate that the applicant can be admitted as admission to the University is based on open competition.

H3 programmes will not be considered in the computation of the University Score. 

Combined Score
Some programmes require additional assessment such as selection test, interview, or portfolios on top of academic results. 

Aptitude-based Admissions (ABA)  
Aptitude-based Admissions (ABA) take into account students’ passions, interests and strengths. Applicants with exceptional talents and/or outstanding achievements beyond schools’ co-curricular activities can be considered, subject to a minimum level of academic competence, for admissions under ABA. 

Adult Learners Scheme
The Adult Learners Scheme (ALS) is an alternative pathway for working adults to apply for admission into NTU full-time undergraduate programme.”
