Tuition Assignments in Singapore

Definition of tuition assignments

Tuition assignments refer to tutoring jobs. A tuition assignment is created when a student requires a teacher or instructor for guidance, and usually in studies. Especially in Singapore, tuition assignments are known as extra lessons for academic subjects or modules. In fact, tuition is a very broad term, which can also be used for extra lesson for musical instruments.

Immediate tuition assignments

Immediate tuition assignments are tuition assignments that can commence almost immediately or instantly once the parents or students are satisfied with the private tutors.

Available tuition assignments

Available tuition assignments are tuition assignments that are still available, but can be currently pending for parents to response. In other words, private tutors can still apply for the available tuition assignments.

Increases of tuition assignments in Singapore

An increase of tuition assignments in Singapore also means that more parents and students are looking for private tutors in Singapore. This is due to the competition in studies. Singapore government encourages talented foreign students to come over to Singapore and this big group of students is very hardworking and focused in their studies that many Singapore parents are feeling the threats that their children will be lagging behind these elites. Since more families are having only one child, parents want to groom their children properly.

Standard of tuition assignments in Singapore

In the past, students who required tutoring services were those with poorer grades. As education in Singapore becomes more competitive that most jobs require high qualification, those students with better grades are beginning to take up private tuition too. Private tuition is for students who need to improve their grades and also those students who wish to maintain their current results. Therefore, a tuition assignment in Singapore can be from both academically good and bad students.

Benefits of taking up tuition assignments in Singapore

The main reasons why private tutors in Singapore want to take up tuition assignments are because of the money, interaction with younger pals or students, or/and also to refresh their studies. Of course, giving part-time tuition is also a hobby to some private tutors because they love to share knowledge.

Difficult tuition assignments in Singapore

Tuition assignments for university (uni), junior college (jc) and polytechnic (poly) students are more difficult to be handled. These students are more mature and have a higher expectation from the private tutors. Whereas, there are fewer private tutors who are confident to take up these tuition assignments, especially for modules in universities, which are much more advanced and complicated than subjects for PSLE and GCE 'O' level.

Most common tuition assignments in Singapore

The most common tuition assignments in Singapore are Maths tuition, English tuition, Science tuition and Chinese tuition for primary and secondary school students. Maths, English and Science are the most important subjects. Singaporeans are generally weak in their second language (Mother Tongue) while Chinese is the most major ethnic group in Singapore; and therefore, we can see the high demand for private tuition for these four subjects.

Demand and supply for tuition assignments in Singapore

In Singapore, private home tutors do not need any certification from the government; anyone can become a full-time or part-time private tutor in Singapore. Therefore, there is a large number of private tutors available in Singapore. On the other hand, not every student in Singapore can afford or require a private tutor. Hence, the demand of tuition assignments in Singapore by private tutors is high but the supply for tuition assignments in Singapore much lower.
