Our home tutors are the same teachers that teach in our group classes. All our teachers are university graduates, and are full-time teachers.
Each teacher has to go through two separate interviews and must fulfill a list of 14 different academic criteria. All of our home tutors have been thoroughly vetted ― both by our students as well as by their MOE colleagues.
Home tuition is one of the single most effective ways of improving a student's G.P. exam grades. And the most important determinant to the success of the student will be the tutor.

"One of the things that helped me a lot, was that the tutor was able to help me create a personalised study plan for the exams"
— Sih Ming-Hui, 2015 Distinction Student
Our home tuition programme closely follows the core syllabus of our mainstream classes. Home tuition students also receive our weekly reading articles, and may also seek help from other teachers within the cirriculum group.
The 'A' level exam can be a daunting paper, but it is possible to score well if you learn an exam-taking strategy and practice critical reading skills.
Exam Prep Module
Most students take tuition to do well in the exams. We understand this. That's why our private tuition syllabus closely follows the syllabus of the G.P. Exam Classes, with the additional benefit that 1-to-1 tutors usually are able to move at a faster pace. For Paper 1, we train students to break-down and evaluate the question, draft a mind-map, hash out ideas and issues, formulate an argumentative strategy, and then do paragraph planning. In Paper 2, we teach you critical reading methods. We also show you how to correctly paraphrase "in your own words", how to write concise summaries, and how to write a correct response to the AQ.
Reading is the most important factor in improving your language proficiency. Our teachers will train you to read critically, and think analytically. Reading casually allows us to glean information presented by the text. In contrast, critical reading is the ability to evaluate a piece of text for its argumentative flow, its logical premise, as well as to decipher the author's bias(es) and motivations. Our teachers coach students into intelligent critical readers. We walk students through opinion articles, comprehension passages, and scholarly journals. Students who practice critical reading skills almost always score above their peers in the examinations.
Writing is the ability to project and assert your own ideas. The ability to write proficiently and persuasively is invaluable. To perfect your essay, our tutors will guide you in the use of grammar, vocabulary, sentence structure, transitional phrases, and paragraphing. Learn to write concisely yet accurately to score at the short questions. Your summary and AQ will be content rich and grammatically flawless. With better students, we may impart advanced writing skills similar to those taught in graduate school.
