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 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 does not want to take risks with your grades
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.

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 O 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 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, O-level or A-level Science exams and need intensive exam preparation
Tuition Assignments private tutor agency hires only experienced, patient and qualified Science tutors with proven abilities to help students’ grades improve
We can quickly find the ideal Science tutor for you. Just let us know your requirements
Knowledge itself gives you a very valuable advantage
Science 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 Science. It is likely that this was because they managed to hire a good Science 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 Science, whether or not you plan to take Science at tertiary level
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
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
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:
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.

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
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 tutors, 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 study skills that have been causing weak grades
Every year after the June holidays, good tutors usually do not want 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 tutor at least one year ahead of the major National Exams
We encourage our clients to be realistic with the tuition budget that they would like to work within
Tuition Assignments home tutor agency does not regulate nor alter the hourly tuition rates
Tutors with proven track records that consistently deliver A grades, tuition teachers with many years of experience, and current/former MOE teachers are already accepting assignments within a certain hourly rate
As there is always strong demand and a waiting list for these tutors, they are not likely to accept rates below their current rates
