Rates of Secondary School Tuition Fees in Singapore

Tuitions aren’t restricted to the academic dwarfs any longer, as more elite students are turning to tuitions. Teaching in schools is becoming less efficient; the time allocated is limited, whereas there are a lot of students. Completing the syllabus at the provided time frame becomes difficult. With these, many see Secondary math tuition centers as the best alternative for their kids. Tuition offers one to one scenarios or small group classes. Students get more confidence to ask questions and revise over assignments. 

It would be wrong for us to give you all these details without revealing to you how much you are going to spend on the tuition fees. We did a little research and came up with some figures for you. These are the average tuition fees charged by tutors in Singapore. These figures, however, are a rough guide. Rates might change and so differ a little bit with ours. It’s therefore essential that you enquire from different centers if you’re planning to take your kid there.

Tutors who possess higher qualifications or those that are more experienced will charge higher rates. Their services, on the other hand, will be more efficient; no compromise. Tutors trained by the Ministry of Education will charge you 50% to 100% more as compared to those with ‘A’ Level and Diploma holders. On top of them being more experienced, they have received a ‘more diverse’ training, and this justifies their fees. Another trend is that some tutors tend to charge approximately 15% more for every two years of teaching experience.

Although Singapore is a small country, most tutors prefer to have students who are residentially near them; otherwise, transport costs will also be incorporated. During the school term, your child might be busy with classes and co-curricular activities. For this matter, you may opt to hire a full-time tutor. 

The higher the fees, the more skills the tutors bring to the table. We have to mention that it is difficult to find a well-trained tutor who will also be willing to travel to your place of residence for the sake of your child. With these rates, you can opt to go for the services that are within your budget. You shouldn’t dispute other tutors based on their prices. Some Diploma holder tutors will provide equally efficient services that will have a significant impact on the academic life of your child.

How to Save Money on Secondary School Tuition Fees in Singapore

Almost every parent in Singapore will tell you that their number one burden isn’t putting food on the table but rather accommodating tuition expenses for their kids. The tuition industry is worth over one billion dollars. Further statistics show that most parents in Singapore spend an average of 25% of their household income on the child’s education. The tuition budget is inclusive here, and will probably make up a bigger percentage.

There is dire need to save money that is spent on Secondary School tuition fees. This is money that can be used somewhere else and make a massive impact. If you’re a Singaporean parent, who’s looking to save the tuition fee but doesn’t know how, worry not, we’ve got you covered. We give you tips on how to save money on secondary school tuition fees for your child. Read on!

Reduce the number of tuition sessions

Singapore schools provide students with massive amounts of homework. The amount of time spent by a 15-year-old kid doing homework in a week is 9.5 hours. If the child is having a hard time completing their homework, you can reduce the number of tuition sessions from once a week to bi-monthly. This does not only give the child more time to concentrate on his or her homework but also cuts your expenses halfway. The child cannot benefit from tuition if he or she cannot complete the homework. As much as tuition is important, the first priority should be on school work.

Combine sessions with other kids

Another great way of saving costs is by combining your child’s tuition sessions with another child; maybe your neighbor’s or a friend’s. Private sessions are costly, and you will want to do everything possible to cut some few bucks. The session while combined will be more, but the expense will be much cheaper if equally shared between the parents. The other kid should be of the same class, and the lessons taught will be beneficiary to both kids. You can have up to four kids, which is still manageable. Moreover, learning in a small group, especially with friends, is more fun than when you’re solo.

Go for online tuition

We are in the digital age, and you can extend this advantage to your child’s tuition. The Internet allows us to do our tasks remotely, and it was only a matter of time before online tuitions joined the club. There are numerous great centers such as MindLab and PSLEMath Learning Centre, which offer exemplary tuition services via the internet. What’s even better, their prices are way cheaper as compared to the traditional form of tuition. Also, some tutors have made use of platforms such as Skype and Google Hangouts to give sessions, and they don’t have to travel physically to the child’s location.


These are great methods to save extra money from your tuition fees and use them somewhere else. You can get a lot more creative and even save more. With the right mind that thinks outside the box, you will be surprised by how much you can save!

Finding the Best Laser Treatment in Singapore


Laser skin treatments are extremely popular in Singapore, largely because they are so effective. Over time, sun and the natural effects of ageing can lead to enlarged pores, skin pigmentation, and a duller appearance of the skin. Laser rejuvenation is non-invasive and can help stimulate natural growth of collagen to decrease wrinkles and lines and break apart pigmentation. Finding the right clinic that can handle laser treatment in Singapore is essential. While you have many options, it is essential to research the clinic beforehand to make sure that they have experience with the laser treatments that you are looking for. You should only trust your skin to a clinic with qualified doctors on staff, the most up-to-date equipment on hand, and a commitment to after-care to ensure that you are satisfied with your treatment. Below are three important considerations to take into account when selecting a clinic for your laser treatment:

Choose a clinic with experience

The world of laser treatment is vast. Start your search finding an aesthetic clinic like IYAC that offers a wide variety of safe and accessible laser and light treatment options. You don’t, however, want to go to a clinic that will try to sell you on treatments you don’t need. To avoid that, look for clinics that have a reputation for avoiding hard sell tactics. Make sure that your clinic choice has a reputation for listening to client concerns and customising treatment options so that your care is the best option for you. What treatment do you need? It’s important to discuss what treatments the knowledgeable staff at your clinic recommends. However, researching your options beforehand allows you to familiarise yourself with what you want and what results you expect before you walk in the door. The first step is to narrow down what you need. Lasers are used to treat many conditions, including: ? Pigmentation issues ? Acne, blemishes, and scars ? Broken blood vessels ? Redness ? Improving everyday maintenance issues ? Overall skin rejuvenation Knowing what results you are looking for allows you to choose the treatment that is optimal for the best possible results. You can then compare your treatment preferences to those recommended by the doctor.

Consider the costs

While cost should never be the only concern when selecting a clinic to perform laser treatment, it is essential you find a facility that offers you the treatment you need at a cost that fits your budget. A crucial part of your overall satisfaction is knowing you have received the quality treatment that you deserve. At the same time, you also want to feel like you paid a fair price compared to the competition. Go to a clinic with a reputation for excellent service at a reasonable price.

Consider the Downtime

Your aesthetic clinic should recognise that you likely have a busy schedule and offer you a laser treatment plan that fits your life and your schedule. Treatment should be gradual and require minimal downtime. Look for treatment options that comfortably fit into your lifestyle, and seek a clinic that is willing to work with your schedule. The right course of treatment should deliver subtle results and require very little accommodation on your part. Laser skin treatments are so popular because they deliver fantastic results. The procedure is usually quick, and the results are noticeable. However, your success and satisfaction rely on you choosing the right clinic and the proper treatment. The clinic you choose should offer excellent options that address all major skin concerns with only the slightest inconvenience to you, all at a reasonable price.

Laser treatment professionals should make a point of listening to the concerns of their patients and offering individualised solutions that work best for them. Those solutions should always be safe, well-tested, and highly successful. The course of treatment should be subtle and gradual with quality results and the least amount of downtime for you. No matter what your skin concerns are, laser skin treatments can give you rejuvenated, revitalised skin that has a healthy and youthful look. Settling on the right treatment at the right clinic means you will receive the best results with the most comfort.

Radiofrequency treatment, popularly called RF, is one such painless and hassle-free treatment. Exilis Singapore is a popular device that uses this Radiofrequency treatment to reduce body fat and tighten skin.
