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 Social Studies – 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 Social Studies 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 Social Studies tuition teacher
Our Social Studies 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 Social Studies tuition
Geography is alright, but I have difficulty in understanding some of the concepts in Social Studies. Actually, I understand what the teacher covers in school, but my answers during the exams seem to be off-point according to my teacher. Mr Ho is very good at analyzing what the question needs me to answer. I tried his method, and have been doing much better in my exams. I was suffering throughout Sec 3 because I was lost. If Mr Ho started teaching me last year, I would have had a happier Sec 3.
Springfield Secondary School
My classmates are able to do well in SS, but I am not able to answer some of the questions. It was very discouraging because my Sec 3 SS was alright. Somehow, my classmates caught up and my own grades did not improve as much as theirs. Ms Christine explains things in a very energetic and fun way. It is so much easier for me to remember information and to analyze whatever she taught me because of the techniques she taught me.

The challenges when studying Social Studies
Many students tell us that they struggle with Social Studies 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 Social Studies 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 Social Studies 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 Social Studies if:
✓ You are interested in Social Studies. 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 Social Studies syllabus and is starting to (or already) dislike Social Studies
✓ You want to pursue a career in Social Studies-related fields such as Law, Social Causes, or Public Policy, and need to maintain a strong A grade
✓ You are taking your SEC exams and need intensive exam preparation
Our resourceful tuition coordinators can find the ideal Social Studies 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.
Social Studies mastery is an important asset
Knowledge itself gives you a very valuable advantage.
Social Studies 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 Social Studies.
It is likely that this was because they managed to hire a good Social Studies tuition teacher in time for them to start organized and intensive revision and prepare for the exams.
Social Studies, as taught in Singapore schools
Your syllabus is designed by the MOE to ensure that you have a solid foundation in Social Studies, whether or not you plan to take a Humanities major at tertiary level.
Career opportunities requiring Social Studies
Career opportunities in the Public Sector, Banking & Finance, Non-Government Organizations, and Law are attractive and very lucrative
Scoring good grades in Social Studies is therefore useful to you, when you want to broaden your career options
Get an A for Social Studies
The only way you can do well in Social Studies 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 Social Studies tuition teacher
Three easy ways to ensure successful grade improvement:
Reduce tutoring requirements
Social Studies 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 Social Studies 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 Social Studies tuition teacher at least one year ahead of the major National Exams.
We encourage our clients to be realistic with the Social Studies tuition budget that they would like to work within.
Tuition Assignments tuition agency does not regulate nor alter the hourly Social Studies tuition rates.
Social Studies tuition teachers who have proven track records that consistently deliver A grades, Social Studies 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 Social Studies, the MOE states:
