Good reviews and feedback by parents and students, since 2014
Singapore's biggest team of professional tutors
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.
Our experienced home tutors deliver excellent results
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.
Popular A-grade tutors who can improve exam performance
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 techniques, and can help you to navigate easily.
Step by step effective tuition, by specialists
We shortlist only committed tutors who can conduct substantive high-impact home tuition sessions, to enable their students to study smarter.
They will pinpoint exactly what is holding you back from excelling in exams so that you can focus on improving your study methods.
You will learn how to boost memory capacity, strategically answer application questions, and to retain information more competently.
Even for heavy subjects like Science – from fundamental to advanced levels.
These crucial productivity skills enable our students to be able to score maximum marks within the time constraints that they have to work within, during exams.
Our tuition consultants and coordinators have matched students with experienced and accomplished Science 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 Singapore does not want to take risks with your grades.
Hire the right Science tuition teacher
Our Science tutors have Singapore’s highest rate of proven tutoring success because we carefully shortlist and select applicants based on their tutoring track record, aptitude/attitude and professionalism/commitment before we include them in our team.
Learn proper content and methods during Science tuition
My dad and I watch science documentaries, which are interesting. But learning Science for exams is difficult because there is so much information that I need to remember. I can’t seem to answer according to what the teacher wants, and my classmates can. This is so frustrating. Ms Tan is very helpful and gives good guidance and explanations for each part of the chapters that I have difficulty with. I have been scoring AL2 and AL3 throughout this year (P5). I will be happy if I can get these same results for PSLE next year.
Northoaks Primary School
I like Biology more than I like Physics, but I think I will have problems if I take pure Biology. Combined Science is generally OK, but my cousin is getting much higher grades in pure Bio and pure Physics. My parents are giving me pressure to do better. Mr Chang is very familiar with the exam and marking requirements. He is also patient whenever I am struggling with the more tricky content and questions. I am beginning to have a better command over Combined Science, and should be able to get at least a B3 for my SEC.

The challenges when studying Science
Many students tell us that they struggle with Science so much that they do not have enough time to study their other subjects.
The Ministry of Education is already taking many steps to reduce the weightage of grades when students apply for secondary schools, junior colleges, polytechnics and universities.
You realize that ultimately, it is still your grades that determine which JC, Polytechnic or University that you will be accepted into

Difficult exam questions - why it's happening
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 dramatically 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.
Every year, students trust Tuition Assignments home tutor agency because we have helped them, their siblings and their friends to achieve higher grades.
It is this careful, thorough, and professional ability to match you with the ideal tutor that
differentiates us from other private tutor agents.
Compete against your peers - and win
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.
You can do better than the others - once you engage a reliable Science tuition teacher
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, at each phase of our academic voyage.
Get a trustworthy private Science tuition teacher who can remember your child’s weaknesses and target those areas through purposeful exercises.
Help your child to stay ahead. It is important for their future.
You need to score well in Science if:
✓ You are interested in Science. 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 Science syllabus and is starting to (or already) dislike Science
✓ You want to pursue a career in Science-related fields such as Medicine, Pharmaceutical Research or Engineering, and need to maintain a strong A grade
✓ You are taking your PSLE, or SEC Science exams and need intensive exam preparation
Tuition Assignments private tutor agency hires only experienced, patient and qualified Science tuition teachers with proven abilities to help students gain 10 to 30 marks urgently.
Our resourceful tuition coordinators can find the ideal Science tuition teacher for you, within 6 hours.
Just let us know your requirements.
We want you to cultivate a strong mindset and history of academic achievements that will allow you to stay motivated and successful in your tertiary goals.
Science mastery is an important asset
Knowledge itself gives you a very valuable advantage.
Science tuition provides the extra boost for academic knowledge – and your grades.
Confidence during your exams
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 SEC or A-Level exams.
Your classmates managed to score good grades for Science.
It is likely that this was because they managed to hire a good Scienc tuition teacher in time for them to start organized and intensive revision and prepare for the exams.
Science, as taught in Singapore schools
Your syllabus is designed by the MOE to ensure that you have a solid foundation in Science, whether or not you plan to take Science at tertiary level.
Career opportunities requiring Science
Career opportunities in Engineering, Data Analysis, Information Technology and Medicine are attractive and very lucrative.
Scoring good grades in Science is therefore useful to you, when you want to broaden your career options.
Get an A for Science
The only way you can do well in Science is by having a clear understanding of the important concepts and answering skills that are required in the examination marking schemes and formats.
Affordable and fair tutor rates - how tuition rates are calculated
Our private tutor matching service is free, and parents only need to pay monthly tuition charges for lessons that had been conducted.
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 teachers and university lecturers
How to get the best deals when hiring a Science tuition teacher
Three easy ways to ensure successful grade improvement:
Reduce tutoring requirements
Science 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 Science 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, SEC 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 Science tuition teacher at least one year ahead of the major National Exams.
We encourage our clients to be realistic with the Science tuition budget that they would like to work within.
Tuition Assignments tuition agency does not regulate nor alter the hourly Science tuition rates.
Science tuition teachers who have proven track records that consistently deliver A grades, Science tuition teachers with many years of tutoring experience, and 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, limited time slots, and a waiting list for these star tutors, they are not likely to accept fees that are below their current rates.
MOE's syllabus objectives
For Primary-Level Science, the MOE states:
Assessment measures the extent to which desired knowledge, skills and attitudes are attained by students. As it serves many purposes, it is important to match the type of assessment to the specific purpose for which it is intended. Before making an assessment about a certain aspect of students’ performance, the teacher should ensure that the assessment mode used will generate information that reflect accurately the particular aspect of performance the teacher intends to assess.
In an inquiry-based classroom, the assessment can take many forms. In addition to the written tests, teachers can also conduct performance-based assessment using the following modes:
- Teacher observations
- Reflections / Journals
- Games and quizzes
- Drama / Show and Tell
- Learning Trails
Teachers can also assess students through the use of portfolio. It is a systematic collection of students’ work and provides a comprehensive picture of their achievement. The work collected provides a continuous record of the students’ development and progress in the acquisition of knowledge, understanding of scientific concepts, application of process skills, and development of attitudes. It also provides opportunity for the students to have self-evaluation and reflections by revisiting their own portfolio.
The assessment modes listed above are by no means exhaustive. Adopting a variety of assessment modes enables the teachers to assess different aspects of teaching and learning.
For Secondary-Level Science, the MOE states:
SCIENCE CURRICULUM FRAMEWORK
The Science Curriculum Framework is derived from the Policy Framework for the Teaching and Learning of Science. It encapsulates the thrust of science education in Singapore to prepare our students to be sufficiently adept as effective citizens, able to function in and contribute to an increasingly technologically-driven world.
Central to the curriculum framework is the inculcation of the spirit of scientific inquiry. The conduct of inquiry is founded on three integral domains of (a) Knowledge, Understanding and Application, (b) Skills and Processes and (c) Ethics and Attitudes. These domains are essential to the practice of science. The curriculum design seeks to enable students to view the pursuit of science as meaningful and useful. Inquiry is thus grounded in knowledge, issues and questions that relate to the roles played by science in daily life, society and the environment.
The science curriculum seeks to nurture the student as an inquirer. The starting point is that children are curious about and want to explore the things around them. The science curriculum leverages on and seeks to fuel this spirit of curiosity. The end goal is students who enjoy science and value science as an important tool in helping them explore their natural and physical world.
The teacher is the leader of inquiry in the science classroom. Teachers of science impart the excitement and value of science to their students. They are facilitators and role models of the inquiry process in the classrooms. The teacher creates a learning environment that will encourage and challenge students to develop their sense of inquiry. Teaching and learning approaches centre around the student as an inquirer.
Science education for the future involves teaching students more than just the basic concepts of science. Students need to be equipped with the skills to be able to use scientific knowledge to identify questions, and to draw evidence-based conclusions in order to understand and make decisions about the natural world and the changes made to it through human activity.
They also need to understand the characteristic features of science as a form of human knowledge and inquiry, and be aware of how science and technology shape our material, intellectual and cultural environments. Lastly, they need to be equipped with ethics and attitudes to engage in science-related issues as a reflective citizen.
A strong foundation in scientific knowledge and methodologies will include the development of reasoning and analytical skills, decision and problem solving skills, flexibility to respond to different contexts and possessing an open and inquiring mind that is willing to explore new territories and learn new things. These are skills and habits of mind that are aligned to the desired 21st century competencies.
