Calendar Planner 2020

Posted by Smart Tuition Singapore on 23rd September and posted in Tuition stationery and information

Our Calendar Planner for 2020 is out!

For people who may prefer writing down on physical papers instead of purely depending on digital calendar, you may like to try it.

Simply download it and print the pages out on A4 size papers.

The columns of the days are neatly spaced out eventually to occupy much of the paper. Therefore, it can be very useful, especially at your workplace.


Coding revamped

Posted by Smart Tuition Singapore on 12th September and posted in Tuition Agency Announcements & Updates

We have recently made a lot of revamping to the codes in order to improve security. These changes won’t be reflected to visitors visibly.

Since the project is a massive one that involves numerous scripts, there’s always chances that bugs would occur.

Last month, we were informed by one of our tutors who tried to reset his password that there’s a bug. We went through the codes and found it – a minor mistake due to the upgrade of PHP version that would affect the entire script.

We don’t have a professional programmer in our team but we are able to do what we can to create the entire site. Therefore, please be patient with us and inform us of any other bug.

Thank you!

New Blacklisted Email Domains

Posted by Smart Tuition Singapore on 30th August and posted in Tuition Agency Announcements & Updates

We have found emails from the following domains in our spam folder within the past three months.


Obviously, we didn’t subscribe to any of their services, newsletters or spam. Therefore, we have decided to take a little bit of our time to add the domains to our blacklist, so that future emails from them will be deleted immediately instead of even going into our spam folder.

Yes, we really hate spams.



Revamping of Website

Posted by Smart Tuition Singapore on 24th January and posted in Tuition Agency Announcements & Updates

As more people are finding convenience in using smart phone, instead of laptop and desktop, to navigate through the internet, we see the need to make our website more mobile-friendly. Traditionally, internet users are used to use the scrollbar on the right side of the browser to scroll up and down when navigating through websites. If the website requires users to scroll left and right as well, it poses inconvenience.

Our existing tutors, parents and other visitors should know we have a large number of pages that provide many articles, tips, tools and features. Due to the style of coding for the previous layout, many things have to be changed on quite a number of pages and thus the process is extremely tedious. We shall not be too technical over here. However, we would like to seek your help to contact us if you have found any bug.

Please note that although we have tried our best to reduce the left-to-right scrolling of pages, there are some pages that have large tables of information that cannot be helped for the time being. We could have split them into different tables but that would pose another inconvenience.

For users who have visited our website in the past weeks, your browser may have stored the old files in the cache. Do force a refresh to your browser if the layout looks awfully wrong. For laptop/desktop users, you can use “ctrl” + “F5” to force your browser to refresh the contents.

Hey people! It’s already the mid of the first month of year 2018. Hope you’re doing well.

Congrats to all students who have recently obtained your O level results; it’s just another phase of your life. Continue to work hard but remember that character building is as important as academic achievements.

Months ago, we had already done and uploaded the printable Singapore calendar planner for year 2018. It’s something that we are very proud of and thus we are creating it every year. It takes hours of tedious time to do it and thus we hope everyone will like it. It’s totally free. If you like it, do share it with your friends in order to utilize our effort!



Prioritizing good tutors

Posted by Smart Tuition Singapore on 15th May and posted in Tuition Agency Announcements & Updates

In Smart Tuition, we appreciate good tutors. Good tutors are tutors who not only can teach, but also have good attitude and a certain level of intelligence. Unfortunately, we have very limited resource and thus we may not be able to attend to people who “need extra help”.

We are often overstretched by weird issues. For examples:

  1. Person A emailed us to change her email address. We changed it and updated her. About two weeks later, she emailed us using the old email and claimed she could not reset her password.
  2. Person B deleted her profile after going through a few clicks on pages that warned her that she could simply set her availability to “not available” and she could not register a new account again because every registration took up a lot of our resources to vet through and verify. A couple of months after deleting her profile, she emailed us for help because she could not register as a tutor.
  3. Person C emailed us to ask if a tuition assignment was available. We have stated in our website the availability of every assignment. There are many tutors applying for every assignment usually and thus it is impossible for us to respond to redundant questions.

There are many different weird problems we experience everyday and it is impossible for us to list out all the stories.

There are all kinds of internet users and we will not be hypocritical to claim that tutors who have signed up with us are all good. There are dishonest, “blur” and lazy people who are trying to get tuition assignments from us and thus we are trying our best to filter them. The ratio of job applicants to tuition assignments is extremely high and thus we have to focus on every assignment instead. Tutors who give us unnecessary problems are also tutors who are less capable in meeting the demand of parents.

Hence, we apologise if we are unable to attend to every email.


17000 Home Tutors

Posted by Smart Tuition Singapore on 14th February and posted in Tuition Agency Announcements & Updates

Our tuition agency is pleased to have reached the number of 17000 tutors, excluding those who have left and those who we have issues with their profiles.

Everyday, we are welcoming new tutors who are signing up with us and also facing some who have decided to move on to focus on other trades. Hereby, we would like to thank the ex-tutors who have both the EQ and IQ to log in and remove their profiles by themselves.

Tuition is a big market in Singapore, however, it is one of the most saturated markets as well. We do face lots of problems (including manpower) often and it is always a struggle to continue with what we have been doing. We put in extra effort such as doing document verification of tutors. We try hard to make sure the tutors are qualified and suitable for the students instead of just dumping a few candidates to the parents to select. To us, it is more than a business – the love and passion – otherwise, we could have worked as tutors instead, which is much more rewarding in term of income.

We have done up the website with all the basic features. Our tutors can choose to show their profiles (without private information) or not to the public. They are supposed to remove their profiles by themselves if they have decided to move on. Occasionally, we still receive requests by tutors to remove their profiles instead of them doing it by themselves. There are also a handful of tutors who have appeared to have a shock of their lives when they “suddenly realise” their profiles are displayed on the website (yes, without their contact details). Logically thinking, unless a tutor has a very unique name that nobody else in Singapore has or if he has chosen to upload a small photo of himself, nobody can confirm the profile belongs to him. Besides, we believe if someone does have a clear conscience, there is no issue of displaying the limited information on his personal profile on the website that he has chosen to display in the first place (and able to turn it off any time by himself).

Once again, we sincerely thank the ex tutors who have minimised problems (apart from wasting our manpower for going through the profiles and documents) before quitting the job that is helping the future generation. We hope your current jobs are satisfying and beneficial to the society as well.
