SINGAPORE'S LARGEST TEAM OF EXCEPTIONAL TUTORS

ACHIEVE GRADE IMPROVEMENTS WITHIN 4 LESSONS

A Warm Welcome!

Hello, I am Kristy Lee – University of Bristol, PhD (School of Education/Research)

I lead a team of tuition consultants and coordinators who are former MOE teachers

Our 36,000 experienced tutors are current/ex-MOE teachers, and graduated/undergraduate tutors

They each have between 2 to over 30 years of tutoring/teaching experience

About 20% of our tutors have PhD’s or Master’s degrees in the same subject that you would like to have tuition in

Making the decision to hire a private tutor AND FINDING THE RIGHT ONE can make all the difference in helping you get your grades back on track

SINGAPORE'S BIGGEST TEAM OF COMPETENT TUTORS

85% of our students achieved improvements of at least 1 grade, within 12 weeks after tuition started

The other 15% achieved grade improvements within the first 2 months of tuition

EFFECTIVE TUITION, BY EXPERTS

As Singapore’s top tuition agency, our tuition consultants and coordinators have matched students with experienced and accomplished tutors

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

Star Tutors does not want to take risks with your grades

STAR TUTORS DELIVERS EXCELLENT RESULTS

Since 2007, we have established a reputation for being trustworthy, honest and effective

Star Tutors listens attentively to your requirements

We show profiles of experienced tutors to you only if they have proven abilities to deliver improved grades

A-GRADE TUTORS

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 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

ECONOMICS TUITION, BY EXPERTS

I want my Economics grades to improve FAST. Hire best-possible tutor

THE CHALLENGES WHEN STUDYING ECONOMICS

Many of our clients tell us that they struggle with Economics 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 junior colleges, polytechnics and universities

You realize that ultimately, it is still your grades that determine which University that you will be accepted into

COMPETE AGAINST YOUR PEERS – AND WIN

And 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 universities

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 universities and courses

YOU CAN DO BETTER THAN THE OTHERS – ONCE YOU ENGAGE RELIABLE 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 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

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 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 the students have been so well-prepared and on the whole have achieved satisfactory grades because they hired good 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 reliable private tutors

YOU NEED TO SCORE WELL IN ECONOMICS IF:

✓ You are interested in Economics. 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 Economics syllabus and is starting to (or already) dislike Economics

✓ You want to pursue a career in Economics-related fields such as Credit Analysis, Public Policy or Banking, and need to maintain a strong A grade

✓ You are taking your A-level Economics exams and need intensive exam preparation

Star Tutors hires only experienced, patient and qualified Economics tutors with proven abilities to help students’ grades improve

We can quickly find the ideal Economics tutor for you. Just let us know your requirements

ECONOMICS MASTERY IS AN IMPORTANT ASSET

Knowledge itself is a very valuable asset

Economics tuition provides the extra boost for 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 A-Level exams

Your classmates managed to score good grades for Economics. It is likely that this was because they managed to hire a good Economics tutor in time for them to do intensive revision and preparation for the exams

ECONOMICS, AS TAUGHT IN SINGAPORE SCHOOLS

Your syllabus is designed by the MOE to ensure that you have a solid foundation in Economics, whether or not you plan to take Economics at tertiary level

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES IN ECONOMICS

Career opportunities in Banking & Finance, Corporate Consulting, Business Analysis and Actuarial Science are attractive and very lucrative

Scoring good grades in Economics is therefore useful to you, when you want to broaden your career options

GET AN A FOR ECONOMICS

The only way you can do well in Economics is by having a clear understanding the key concepts of what are required in the examination schemes and formats

AFFORDABLE AND FAIR TUTOR RATES

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 industry average, the better-qualified tutors are not likely to apply for the assignment

The figures below are the average range of rates quoted by experienced tutors with good track records

Star Tutors represents only university undergraduates, graduates, MOE current/former teachers and university lecturers

GET THE BEST DEALS WHEN HIRING AN ECONOMICS TUTOR

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 English tutor at least one year ahead of the major National Exams

Budget

We encourage our clients to be realistic with the tuition budget that they would like to work within

Star Tutors 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

star tutors

It is this careful, thorough, and professional ability to match you with the ideal tutor that
