PARENT REVIEWS AND RECOMMENDATIONS

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

SINGAPORE'S LARGEST TEAM OF EXCEPTIONAL TUTORS

ACHIEVE GRADE IMPROVEMENTS WITHIN 4 LESSONS

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

HIRE TUTORS WITH TRACK RECORDS OF IMPROVING GRADES

MOST DEPENDABLE TUITION AGENCY IN SINGAPORE

Over half of Star Tutors’ new clients are recommended to us by current students and parents

You probably found us because your relative, friend, parents’ forum/chat group, or school teacher told you about our effective tutors

Year after year, parents and students tell us that Star Tutors has the most dependable home tuition agency team in Singapore

It is the quality of the tutors that determine how successful the tuition will be

Everyone can do well in their exams

Hire tutors with proven track records, today

Since 2007, we have established a broad and deep network of specialist and committed tutors in all the academic levels and subjects

WE SELECT ONLY TUTORS WHO HAVE A TRACK RECORD OF GRADE IMPROVEMENTS

Within 24 hours after you contact us, we will show you between 4 and 10 profiles of exceptional tutors

All of these shortlisted tutors are competent, responsible and motivated by their own abilities to improve their students’ grades

We show you only profiles of tutors with a proven track record of helping their students improve 1 to 2 grades within 1 semester

Build a strong foundation for your child

Remedial tutoring can start at any age, but catching the problem early is best

OUR TRACK RECORD - WE HELP STUDENTS SUCCEED

Maryanne, Bukit Batok Secondary School

“My tutor told me that I needed to change some of the ways I studied and took notes. I tried it his way, and I got my first-ever A in Biology.”

Loh WK, Head of Department School in the North-East

“Angela has ensured that her tutor recommendations fit my brief. She helped me find committed, experienced and qualified tutors for my daughter within 2 days.”

N Tan, Holy Innocents’ High School

“I’m tired of websites claiming that they can double my Math grades just by hiring their tutors. These sites are riddled with awful grammatical errors! How can I trust them? Anyway, thanks Ms Judy, for understanding my (slow!) learning style. And yes, I am now scoring mostly B’s and some A’s, when I used to score D’s and F’s.”

Liu Yang Toh, Raffles Institution (now studying PPE at the University of Oxford)

“If I recommend Star Tutors to my classmates, will they have an edge over me? Hahaha.”

Mrs Lee, Mother of student from Tao Nan School

“The coordinators understood what my daughter needed, and found an excellent tutor for us within 5 hours. It is so obvious to me that you are Singapore’s top tuition agency. My sister is also very pleased with the 3 tutors that you matched her children with.”

Ricky Wong, Tour Guide

“Siok Hwee is a very patient tutor, and gets along very well with my son. His grades have improved this year. Best of all, he has changed his attitude toward my wife and me.”

Lau SL

“The syllabus and curriculum have changed. Mrs Tan has shown me how other schools teach English to their students. I am at the top of my class again at ACS.”

Sebastian David

“I teach Chemistry in a school in the West. I know how on some days, it is difficult to teach such large groups of students, and I have to cater for the middle range in the group. I try to give equal attention to the slower students and the fast learners….but there is only that much time that teachers have in front of their class. My son and daughter have tuition at home because I want them to have the full attention of a reliable tutor.”

Deng Lang, Ai Tong School

“From the beginning of this year, I had been feeling discouraged because my classmates do not seem to have the same problems as I do in understanding P6 Science and Math. I am glad my aunt contacted Star Tutors for me. My cousin’s grades had improved, and mine are less erratic now. Definitely the top tuition agency in Singapore!”

Chloe, St Margaret’s Secondary School

“Thanks for believing in me, Ben. I tried to act brave when I had bad grades. Now I am a lot more confident, and the grades are starting to improve.”

Chan KT, Managing Partner Law Firm

“My son is in the Integrated Programme, and it is very difficult to find a qualified and reliable tutor who is able to think ahead of him. I asked around a few agencies, and finally managed to find a very competent tutor through Star Tutors.”

Nicole Chung Mayflower Secondary School

“I feel guilty that tuition is a big financial burden to my parents. I pay attention because my tutor is so sincere in wanting me to improve. I was a high achiever in lower secondary, but my grades in Secondary 3 were very disappointing. Fortunately, found good tutors and my O Levels turned out well.”

Madam Teng, Mother of student from the School of the Arts

“I think the tutor has to get along with your child. We went through a few tutors before finding one that my son really liked and got along with. From then on, his performance improved. I think it makes a big difference. No wonder my son’s school teacher said you are Singapore’s top tuition agency.”

Ang SW Bartley Secondary School

“I cannot believe I got an A for that essay! I normally can barely just scrape through and pass.”

Wong MK, National Junior College

“The teaching pace in school sometimes leaves me confused about certain terms. I am too shy to speak up and ask because my classmates (in the Integrated Programme) seem to have no problems. Glad my dad found me a good tutor.”

Zubaidah, MOE Teacher, Math School in the West

“My son rolled his eyes and said “OK, you found yet another tutor again.” Fortunately, Roger had great chemistry with him, and has been teaching him from P4 till now (Sec 2 at the time of writing).”

Amanda, Singapore Chinese Girls’ School

“Anthony is the perfect balance between serious and fun. He doesn’t accept laziness, but whenever he sees that I am working hard, he will encourage me with interesting puzzles. The two favorite pens that I use during his lessons and at school were given to me by him.”

Eddy K, Company Director

“After the Meet the Teacher session at ACS, I decided that my son needed a tutor. We were shown 6 profiles, and his Chinese has stabilized.”

Michael Peh, Hospitality industry 

“Sandy helped my son improve on his grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. Best of all, how to use the words in the correct manner. Without her guidance, he and I would not know which mistakes were made. Such a relief to have a reliable tutor.”

Chandra, Architect

“Ryan is an excellent coordinator! Listened carefully. Very experienced and resourceful.”

Winfred C, Peirce Secondary School

“Very good exam tips and strategies. Needed these so much.”

Mr Chung Father of student from Anderson Primary School

“It is important for a child to have a good foundation from an early age. When my son received tuition support for his homework assignments, he slowly started to enjoy going to school. His attitude toward us has improved too.”

Mr Tan Kong Choon (Eunos)

“Andrew is very stubborn, and he did not like the previous tutors. The tutor that you introduced to us a month ago is by far the best that we’ve engaged, and we are very comfortable with her. Thanks!”

Janelle L, Integrated Programme CHIJ St Nicholas Girls’ School

“June found a great tutor for me within 2 days. Mr. Leong’s ability to teach Physics is amazing. A very reliable tutor, and he has been teaching me for 3 years.”

Mr Nizam (Punggol)

“Thanks for the tutor. My son has caught up a lot in just 3 lessons.”

Janice (Woodlands)

“My mum and I are very pleased about the Literature tutor you recommended, among the 5 profiles that you showed us.”

Felix Tan, Nanyang Technological University

“Competent and friendly. I miss having Felicia tutor me now that I am at university.”

Lim CY, Catholic High School

“The new 1128 syllabus emphasizes innovative thinking. Feel so blessed to find a reliable tutor who emphasizes creative writing. Great recommendation, Angela!”

Anthony Ng Biology Tutor

“Same day confirmation. Must be because you have so many parents seeking your services. Thanks David, for the assignments.”

Julia Chew, Investment Banker, Chartered Financial Analyst

“Thanks Ryan for shortlisting these two tutors for me. I originally wanted one tutor only for my daughter, but the other tutor’s profile was also interesting, so my sister engaged him for her son.”

Mr Evan Wong (Hougang)

“I run a small business together with my wife. We are not able to understand most of what is covered in the text books, so we really need good tutors for our 2 kids. Thanks for understanding our needs and going out of your way to quickly find us tutors in Combined Science, History and Chinese.”

Wei Xiang, Chung Cheng High School (Main)

“It’s difficult to find a good Social Studies tutor. My school teacher told me that Star Tutors is the top tuition agency in Singapore, so I contacted them. My Social Studies tutor’s explanations were so clear, and I was able to understand immediately. Thanks for going the extra mile.”

Yang CT, Pioneer Junior College

“Was able to score well in chemistry throughout secondary school. Wasn’t able to keep the grades in JC, so I sought a tutor. Now, back to being top 5 in class.”

Madam Chin, Mother of students who studied at Hwa Chong Institution and Methodist Girls’ School

“Star Tutors found me very experienced tutors when my son and daughter went through their PSLE and GCE O Level exams. The tutors knew exactly what was required, so we saved a lot of time preparing for the exams.”

Karl H, Kong Hwa School

“Miserable. This is the only word I can think of when I attended Chinese lessons in school. It’s slightly more tolerable now that I have a reliable tutor at home whom I can get along with.”

Yuen CY, Hwa Chong Institution

“Very resourceful and hardworking coordinators, and they have found me tutors who know their subjects – and can teach so that I can understand. I am less grouchy when I am at CCA because I know that I have enough time for most of my stuff now.”

Sarah Ng, Nanyang Junior College

“Being in a new school was very stressful. Glad that I have a reliable tutor who is able to explain Econs to me.”

Ang CH, Pharmacist

“My daughter is in the GEP at Tao Nan, and has so many questions about everything. Fortunately, Madam Wang has been able to help her with school work, as well as in her hobbies.”

Esther Fong, Boutique Owner, Toa Payoh area

“Very helpful and knowledgeable coordinator. David found me a good tutor within 2 days, and we started tuition lessons that same week.”

James Chan English Tutor (3 years tutoring experience)

“I registered with 5 online tuition agencies. Two of them were a bit too “commercial” for me, and I also didn’t like the profiles of students that they sent to me.”

W Tang

“I was the level head for Secondary 4 Physics, overseeing the planning and implementation of the curriculum for upper secondary students. I am able to tailor lessons that suit your child’s learning needs because I am very familiar with the curriculum and how exam questions are set. I chose Best Tutor to represent me solely, because one of the team leaders was also a level head like me, and understands the education sector very well.”

Abdul Azim, Doctor

“Rafidah identified Nora’s weak points and told us about MOE’s changes in exam formats. Then, she gave us tips on how Nora can improve. Very useful information, and very helpful tutor.”

Michael W, Anglo-Chinese School (Independent)

“Firm, patient and explains difficult concepts in a step-by-step manner so that I can understand.”

Yap May May, Real Estate Agent

“If only I found this tutor years ago, maybe Der Liang’s Chinese would not have become so weak.”

Heshita Balan, Economics Analyst Local Bank

“Claire was traumatized by the Lit grades. Other subjects were good, but Lit is not easy to understand. Valery was able to clearly explain about the differences in literary devices.”

Keith Chow, Internet Security Company 

“I notice that my son has not come up with excuses recently to avoid Math tuition. Miss Lim has helped him reduce his fear of not being able to understand the key methods.”

Bernard Tiong (Cairnhill)

“My wife and I called several tuition agencies, and we were about to give up. Thanks for being so patient and accommodating throughout. We really appreciate that you worked very hard to get us the experienced tutors, so quickly. Sam has the qualifications and teaching skills we are looking for. He teaches well, and is very encouraging.”

Charlie Woo, Econs Tutor (9 years tutoring experience)

“Thanks for putting in so much effort. Really appreciate that you have matched me with such good students.”

Leslie S, Rosyth School

“Reliable tutor. Many witty and interesting stories. Knows the Chinese culture and language very well. I almost like the language now!”

Rajachandran S., Damai Secondary School

“I failed my first Accounts test. I thought that my being good at Math would have helped. Nope. Having a reliable tutor helped.”

Yap LH, Provision Shop Owner

“Alan gets his homework (school and tuition) done, and each time that happens, he proudly tells us so.”

Dr Tan WL (Bukit Timah)

“I usually ask my friends if they know any experienced tutors who can deliver good academic grades. This is my first time using a private tuition agency. I contacted Star Tutors on Wednesday morning, and our first session in Biology started two days later. Very good range of qualified tutors, and I also hired tutors in General Paper, Math and Chinese. All are turning out well, thanks.”

Rebecca Lau, Math Tutor (6 years tutoring experience)

“Angela explained the parents’ requirements to me clearly, and assigns me the students I am comfortable to teach. She responds quickly to my whatsapp messages and follows up very well.”

Anand Kumaraswamy, Head of Risk International Bank

“Ryan was telling me to reduce my budget, rather than to increase it. And introduced me an excellent undergraduate tutor who teaches so well. Great recommendation, and I am very grateful.”

Doris Fernandez, Human Resources Logistics Company

“The previous tutors were not able to capture his attention. Mr Tan is able to make History relevant because of the colorful comments that he has.”

Irene Wu Supermarket cashier

“I was shocked when Hui Zhen failed her Primary 5 Math. I got her a tutor and her grades have been steady and improving. Hui Zhen is so relieved that she has someone to turn to for the difficult topics. Thanks Ryan for being such an encouraging and hardworking coordinator!”

Khoo K J MOE Teacher Central Singapore region

“I teach Principles of Accounts in a top secondary school, and am too tired to teach my son when I get home. Fortunately, managed to find a nurturing and responsible tutor.”

Loh AB, Serangoon Junior College

“I’m absolutely grateful to Star Tutors for matching a very knowledgeable JC tutor for me. I had high hopes for Economics before enrolling into JC, but I didn’t realise it would be such an uphill battle. Thankfully, your agency was fast and efficient in searching for a suitable Econs tutor for me. Ryan, thanks so much for everything!”

Madam Elissa Cheong, (HarborFront area)

“I work in a bank, and thought I could teach Math to my primary school son. The syllabus has changed since my time. I am relieved that Star Tutors found me a tutor who has a track record of being able to explain the methods in ways that my son can understand. He used to score a weak A, and now we are aiming for an A*.”

Siew Jun NUS High School of Mathematics and Science

“Sarah was knowledgeable and could explain in a way that I can understand. She knows the syllabus and exam requirements very well. No wonder she did so well in her own studies.”

Jacky Leong Kam Wai, Engineer, oil company

“Carol looked so young and we wondered if she could teach. Turns out that she is good at Math and can explain things so clearly and patiently. It is good to hire a tutor who is still studying because they know what students are going through.”

Karson Lum, Hair salon owner

“There are many difficult concepts to understand in Social Studies. My daughter studies at Outram Secondary. Mr Lawrence was able to explain them so well. She decided that she did not have to give up because she started to look at her school work in a different way.”

Madam Chiang (Katong)

“My daughter has tutors in General Paper (taught by a law graduate), Econs (taught by someone working in a bank), and Chinese (taught by a university lecturer). I was surprised that you managed to find these tutors within my budget. They are good at teaching the syllabus, and also give her real-world views. Thanks for your hard work, and the amazing speed.”

Siti Mohd, Boon Lay Secondary School

“Thanks David, for the fast response time, and for answering my difficult questions. Very impressed by the A Math, English and Chemistry tutors you had matched me with.”

Soh Meng Puah, Accountant, CPA

“General Paper has been a problem for my son since JC1. Mr Tan is a very versatile and committed tutor. Gary had an A, and is now studying law in the UK. “

Sunny Mok, Interior Designer

“I prefer a young tutor, and true enough, she got along so well with my daughter.”

Mr Pahil (River Valley)

“I am a lecturer in business studies in one of the polytechnics. My daughter is rather weak in languages and in Physics. Star Tutors found me tutors with a good track record in these subjects, and these tutors have been teaching her since when she was in Secondary 2.”

Ashok Kumar, Engineer, SMRT

“The coordinator June is friendly and helpful. She balances the requirements of the parents and tutors very well.”

Francis Wong, Lecturer Local university

“My daughter is studying at Nanyang Girls’ High School. She felt so “left behind” in class even though she does her best to pay attention and understand. Having a tutor who is an undergraduate has helped, especially when he tells her what to pay more attention to for the exams.”

Nelson Ho, Biochemical researcher

“The tutor that Star Tutors showed us is a popular tutor in the Central area, with a track record of improving students’ grades. I sat in on one of his sessions. Will leave the teaching to him, because I am comfortable that he has a good balance of being firm and friendly.”

Mavis N, Cedar Girls’ Secondary School

“Wasn’t expecting that your coordinator Angela would be so quick and professional. Tried my luck, and am pleased with the committed tutors in Physics, Math and Chinese that you introduced to me.”

Eva Cheong Finance Manager

“Peter had no sense of urgency, and we would fight over the way he lazed around at home. William was able to make Geography interesting because he had many fun stories to tell, and a track record of inspiring his students. I told William that we do not need quick results, and I am so pleased that Peter shows interest in researching for the mini projects that William gives to him. Thanks for recommending us this reliable tutor.”

Ricky Leong, Chef

“My family runs on a tight budget. Star Tutors managed to find me two experienced committed tutors, and so quickly too. Thanks David.”

Ms Ute (Dover)

“Thanks for finding nice tutors for me and my international school friends. The other agencies that we approached were not able to help. Glad that your database is not just (very!) large, but also full of excellent teachers. By far the best tuition agency in Singapore!”

Gary Yee, Auditor

“My mother-in-law objected when I wanted an English tutor for my K2 daughter. Fortunately (for me), the tutor gets along well with both my daughter as well as family members. And she speaks more confidently now.”

Ng SL, Manager/Administrator Public Hospital

“The coordinators understand the issues that my daughter and I are facing. June and Ryan are resourceful, and they have a strong sense of responsibility for their clients, the students and the tutors.”

Goh WH, National University of Singapore

“I now understand the issues surrounding demand-side policies. Wrote a good paper on it, and my prof at NUS complimented me. Thanks for finding me a great tutor!”

Lau Jin Yee, Maritime industry

“Very pleased with the steady improvement in grades.”

Sandy Soh, School Canteen Operator

“David is honest and candid whenever I have questions about tutors and my daughter’s learning challenges.”

Mr Abdul (Pasir Ris)

“The coordinators at Star Tutors are very experienced and professional in tutor matching and made me feel comfortable throughout my search for reliable tutors. I have engaged 5 tutors from them so far for different subjects, and my sister engaged 2, who both have a very good track record.”

Liew LP, Yio Chu Kang Secondary School

“Madam Wong makes sure that I understand the questions thoroughly. She has a good track record of teaching using MOE-required answers. So, when I gave wrong answers, she explained why the correct answer is what it is. Helps a lot to understand the reasoning, rather than be forced to memorize like crazy.”

Ng Ching Man, Airline Ground Staff

“My son’s learning capacity is erratic. I know he is not easy to teach, but Teacher Alice has been doing a good job.”

Carmen Tan, IT architect

“Understood exactly what stage my daughter was at, and what she needed to move forward. She managed to get an A* in English, and is now in the IP programme at RGS.”

Wong Kwok Hing Financial Advisor

“Anyone can tutor, but it’s rather difficult to motivate a reluctant 15 year old. Thanks Desmond, for giving my son the confidence that he (and we) needed.”

Kam Wai Meng, Advertising industry

“I nag less now.”

Henry Gao, Grab driver

“Anna is beginning to understand the key concepts. I am glad that she is now willing to try.”

Steven H, Mayflower Primary School

“At the first session, Teacher Andy told me what I was doing wrong. From then on, it was easy to figure out how to get the correct answers, once my study method was corrected.”

Yun AL, Regent Secondary School

“I needed someone to help with my homework, which was getting overwhelming because I couldn’t understand so many things. Managed to catch up, and passed Biology.”

Terri Chau, Chemical Engineer

“As a parent, I believe in discipline. I do not want a “soft” tutor, and Star Tutors introduced me to a firm tutor. With his experience in teaching at a leading school, we managed to guide Matthew to learn more effectively.”

Alvin (Joo Chiat)

“My Math was always my strongest subject, but when I started on my Stats course at NUS, I felt quite lost. Thanks for finding me such a good tutor. Everything is a lot clearer now.”

Mrs Wee Choon Kiat (Newton)

“I enquired at another agency that claims to have 50,000 tutors. I asked them about tutor track record. Waited for a week, and even though I asked them twice during that time, they had no good tutor to show me. Made me lose confidence in these types of claims. My sister told me that you found her a good tutor, and I would like to thank you for the General Paper tutor that you recommended to us within 5 hours of my telling you what I am looking for.”

Madam Lee, mother of student from Dunman High School

“Hi! I’ve already emailed Joanne and informed her that my totally unscientific daughter managed to get an A in physics due to her help! Thanks also to Star Tutors for identifying Joanne for us.”

Mrs Teo, mother of student from Anglo-Chinese School

“I submitted my request on a Monday morning. By 3pm that day, they found an experienced tutor for me. Very fast. And exactly what I want.”
