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

general paper tuition

GP Paper 2 was a problem for me throughout JC1. I don't know why. My English had been good since primary school. We found Ms Angela from The Best In Singapore, and she showed me where my weaknesses were and how to overcome those challenges. I am glad to have proper guidance because for the whole of last year, I felt so stressed and lost.

My plan is to study Law either in Singapore or in the UK. My mum is a lawyer and I am so inspired by her. General Paper helps me to carefully think through issues, just like a lawyer would. I have been getting most A's, and the occasional B for GP. I set high standards for myself, and want to be sure that I get that A for my A Levels. Ms Jin has been teaching GP at a tuition centre. She is very good at Paper 1. I got my A for A Levels, and am now at Oxford studying Law.

I have been able to do well in Econs, but for some reason, my GP grades fluctuated from paper to paper. I didn't want my GP grades to pull down my overall scores. Mr Terry has been teaching GP for almost 10 years. With his experience, he was able to quickly identify what I was doing wrong. I took tuition twice a week (yes, I was very serious about improving my grades in GP) throughout JC2, and managed to score an A for my A Levels. A lot of hard work, but certainly worth it.

My cousins told me that their weakest subject was GP. That got me very worried because my writing skills are so-so. Right after I finished my O Levels, I took GP lessons from Mr Chang. We went through many topics in Paper 1, and he helped sharpen my logical thinking and writing style. Once school started, I felt much better that he helped me prepare so well.

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.”
