Hello, I am Victoria Lim – PhD, University of Oxford
I lead a team of tuition consultants and coordinators who are former MOE teachers
Our 57,000 experienced home tutors are current/ex-MOE teachers, and graduated/undergraduate tutors
They each have between 2 to over 30 years of tutoring/teaching track record of helping students’ grades improve
About 20% of our tutors have PhD’s or Master’s degrees in the same subject that you would like to have tuition in
We Are Not Able To Accept Any Tutor Registrations Through This Hire Tutors Form. Thank You
85% of our students achieved improvements of at least 1 grade, within 3 months after tuition started
The other 15% scored between 10 to 30 higher marks within the first 2 months of tuition
We are Singapore’s top tuition agent for each subject taught at MOE schools
Since 2014, we have established a reputation for being trustworthy, honest and effective
Tuition Assignments listens attentively to your requirements
We show profiles of experienced tutors to you only if they have proven abilities to deliver improved grades
Because our coordinators are former MOE teachers, we know what works – and what does not – when we are shortlisting tutor profiles
Students enjoy learning from – and feel comfortable with – someone who can clearly tell them how they can master difficult content and conquer their challenges
Therefore, our tutors must have themselves scored a distinction in the subject(s) they teach, before we will consider showing their profile to you
Our private tutors each specialize in different subjects, and some regularly teach a combination of subjects. They have valuable, relevant and practical exam tips to share with you
They know the correct answers, and can help you to navigate easily
Our tuition consultants and coordinators have matched students with experienced and accomplished Physics tuition teachers
Many years ago, we had seen for ourselves that when a tutor teaches the student the wrong information (because he/she is not really competent), the chances of the student’s grades improving are very slim
Tuition Assignments does not want to take risks with your grades
I thought that Physics would be my strongest Science subject, but it has been difficult to score A’s. I get mostly B’s, even though my Chem marks are A’s. Mr Clarence has a Master’s in Applied Physics and he had been scoring A’s for Physics throughout the time he was in school. He taught me many important exam skills and answering techniques. Mr Clarence explained that it wasn’t my lack of skills or abilities, but how I answered the questions that made my grades weaker than they should be. I got an A for my O Level Physics, and I am taking Physics again for my A Levels.
CHIJ St Theresa’s Convent
The Physics concepts became more complicated in the 2nd half of JC1 and I was very worried how this would affect my A Levels. We found a good tuition teacher, Ms Stephanie. She used to teach at tuition centres and is familiar with the exam requirements, the marking schemes and how to teach according to the student’s abilities and interests. Every tuition lesson has been interesting, whether we are covering what is taught in school, or what the university students learn. I am enjoying the sessions, and I should be able to get a strong A for my A Levels.

The fact still remains that many, many students from your school and from other schools are competing with you for the same coveted courses, and places in junior colleges, universities or polytechnics
Demand for the best (or better) classes, courses, and tertiary institutes will always exceed the available places
Average-scoring students typically end up being accepted into the less popular junior colleges, polytechnics, universities and courses
Over the years, harder questions are being answered correctly by more and more students
Exam setters have no choice but to introduce even harder questions, to be able to distinguish the superior from the good students in each cohort
This then leads to much tougher questions when it is your turn to take the exam
It’s a bit of a vicious cycle, really.
Everyone fears that questions will be more difficult when it is their turn to take the exam, so parents want to engage professional private tutors, to better-prepare their children to compete against their peers. The children study harder and manage to score good grades
The exam papers and results are then reviewed, and because so many students have been very well-prepared and on the whole have achieved satisfactory grades because they hired excellent home tutors, the questions are deemed too easy
This makes it necessary to set questions that are even more difficult, the next year
And further increases the need for parents to engage reputable private tutors
Because the objective is to “do better than the other person” rather than only to “get a certain grade”, parents will do all they can (as loving parents) to give their children that competitive edge
It’s not just about keeping up with other children with better grades, but also to make sure their kids don’t feel “stupid’’ or “left out’’ and end up really hating the subject just because others are so good at it
Good grades are the best confidence boosters
Get a trustworthy private tutor who can remember your child’s weaknesses and target those areas
Help your child to stay ahead. It is important for their future
✓ You are interested in Physics. However, no matter how hard you try, your grades have not improved satisfactorily, and you have difficulty applying what you have learnt to answer the questions adequately
✓ Your child often complains about the difficult and complex Physics syllabus and is starting to (or already) dislike Physics
✓ You want to pursue a career in Physics-related fields such as Data Science, Engineering or Medical Research, and need to maintain a strong A grade
✓ You are taking your O-level or A-level Physics exams and need intensive exam preparation
Tuition Assignments home tutor agency hires only experienced, patient and qualified Physics tutors with proven abilities to help students’ grades improve
We can quickly find the ideal Physics tutor for you. Just let us know your requirements
Knowledge itself gives you a very valuable advantage
Physics tuition provides the extra boost for knowledge – and your grades
You do not want to end up being assigned courses or a tertiary institute that is your 3rd or 4th choice because you lost out by just a few marks in your O-Level or A-Level exams
Your classmates managed to score good grades for Physics. It is likely that this was because they managed to hire a good Physics tuition teacher in time for them to start intensive revision and prepare for the exams
Your syllabus is designed by the MOE to ensure that you have a solid foundation in Physics, whether or not you plan to take Physics at tertiary level
Career opportunities in Computer Science/Information Technology, Engineering, Architecture and Materials Science are attractive and very lucrative
Scoring good grades in Physics is therefore useful to you, when you want to broaden your career options
The only way you can do well in Physics is by having a clear understanding of the important concepts and answering skills that are required in the examination marking schemes and formats
For O-Level Physics, the MOE states:
These are not listed in order of priority.
The aims are to:

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 the interpretation of experimental and theoretical results.
A Knowledge with Understanding
Students should be able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding in relation to:
‘Signs, Symbols and Systematics 16–19’, Association for Science Education, 2000)
The subject content defines the factual knowledge that candidates may be required to recall and explain.
Questions testing these objectives will often begin with one of the following words: define, state, describe, explain or outline. (See the Glossary of Terms.)
B Handling Information and Solving Problems
Students should be able – in words or by using symbolic, graphical and numerical forms of presentation – to:
These assessment objectives cannot be precisely specified in the subject 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, calculate or determine.
C Experimental Skills and Investigations
Students should be able to:
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.
School-Based Science Practical Assessment (SPA) (Paper 3)
C Experimental Skills and Investigations, 100% of the marks.
For A-Level Physics, the MOE states:
The aims of a course based on this syllabus should be to:

Tuition Assignments Singapore has a team of highly qualified tutors who specialize in tutoring Polytechnic-Level and University-Level students
Primary School Tuition
Secondary School Tuition
Junior College Tuition
Polytechnic Modules Tuition

GCE O Level Tuition
GCE A Level Tuition
Our private tutor matching service is free, and students only need to pay monthly tuition charges
Tutors in Singapore quote their own hourly rates. In general, the rates are based on their years of private tutoring experience, their academic qualifications, and their abilities/confidence to help their students’ grades improve
The tuition industry is very competitive and transparent
Parents are aware that when their budget is below the market’s average rate, the better-qualified tutors are not likely to apply for the assignment
The figures below are the typical range of rates quoted by experienced tutors with good track records
Tuition Assignments Singapore represents only university undergraduates, graduates, MOE current/former teachers and university lecturers
Three easy ways to ensure successful grade improvement:
Reduce Tutoring Requirements
Accounting tuition rates depend on tutor qualifications as well as tutor availability. The more requirements you have, the harder it is to find a tutor who will respond to your assignment
Typical requirements would include Gender, Combination of Subjects, Budget, Schedule, etc.
You should shortlist the requirements that are most important to you
For example, if you want only female Physics tuition teachers, then this reduces the tutor options by 50%
It is also good to hire two separate tutors, to teach two different subjects because most tutors are truly strong at one subject, even if they themselves scored A’s for both of the subjects that you want tuition in
Major National Exams
Tutors who specialize or have significant experience in tutoring students taking their PSLE, GCE O Levels and GCE A Levels typically quote higher hourly rates
This is due to the intensive effort in exam preparation, content revision, and (if the student was not taught properly in previous years) getting the student to un-learn the content and study skills that have been causing weak grades
Every year after the March or June school holidays, good tutors usually do not want to accept assignments to teach graduating-year students because they will need to rush and intensely cram a lot of content, in order to adequately prepare the student
Parents therefore prefer to engage a reliable Physics tuition teacher at least one year ahead of the major National Exams
We encourage our clients to be realistic with the Physics tuition budget that they would like to work within
Tuition Assignments private tuition agency does not regulate nor alter the hourly Physics tuition rates
Accounting tuition teachers proven track records that consistently deliver A grades, Physics tuition teachers with many years of experience, and current/former MOE teachers are already accepting assignments within a certain hourly rate that are paid to them by other parents and students
As there is always strong demand and a waiting list for these star tutors, they are not likely to accept rates below their current rates
