Tuition agencies or private educational academies are common in some parts of Asia especially in the Middle East, India, Malaysia, South Korea and Singapore. In Singapore, for instance, a lot of tuition agencies have sprouted and become pervasive sights all over the country.
Parents normally seek tutoring classes for their kids to help them improve their performance in school particularly in subjects such as Math, Language and Reading, and Science. These are among the important subjects in Singapore educational system, which at the same time are taught in a tuition agency. In finding the ideal tuition agency for your children, there are two things you need to bear in mind.
High Standard Tutoring System
To find out whether a tuition agency has a good tutoring system that will meet your standards, there are some things you need to look at. First, the tuition agency must offer a variety of subjects and lesson levels to cater to students’ different needs. The academy should also have a flexible schedule to suit the child’s availability.
Likewise, a good tuition agency should offer home tutors aside from academy classes. It’s also vital that the academy keeps track of your child’s performance, which in their case does not need to be a formal report, but rather something that indicates your child’s improvement. This way their lessons can be adjusted easily and according to the student’s ability. Most tuition agencies in Singapore now have a website which you can visit to learn more about their programs and systems.
Par Excellence Tutors
Another thing you have to consider in looking for a suitable tuition agency in Singapore is the qualifications of the tutors and teachers working in the academy. Since there has been a boom in tuition agencies all over the country, there are a lot of people who would apply for a teaching job even without prior teaching or tutoring experience and enough qualifications.
A teaching job is not quite easy to be done by just anyone. By checking the website of the tuition agency or through personal inquiry you’d likely learn about the qualifications of the tutor they will be providing for your child. Moreover, some academies even let you conduct a short interview with your prospective teacher.
