Ms Gina Ho is a former MOE teacher. As a member of our tuition co-ordinator team, she actively notes the popular English tutors who have received positive feedback from parents and students, based on the tutors’ qualifications, teaching style and ability to help students’ grades improve. She takes great pride in knowing exactly which tutors to shortlist because their personalities and track records would suit each of our student-clients.
As Gina loves the English language, her goal is to help ignite her student’s passion for the subject. By selecting English tuition teachers who make their lessons engaging and relatable, Gina helps many students develop a strong interest in writing and become independent learners. Her motivation to teach comes from her firm belief that her students are acquiring a valuable skill that they can use for the rest of their lives.

We have many students and parents who contact us to thank us for having the best database in Singapore for English home tutors, and he sees it as his responsibility to ensure that his team of English private tutors are matched with students who would appreciate their teaching methods.
Terrance hopes to help students discover the beauty and value of mastering the English language. What he finds most meaningful about tutor matching is learning about each student’s unique strengths and helping them fulfil their academic and personal potential.

CLIENTS’ CRITERIA FOR SELECTING TUTORS
The criteria stated by the client for each Tuition Assignment can differ from case to case
Some clients require MOE teachers, others state their preference for experienced undergraduates with proven experience to improve the grades of their students
Tuition Assignments are based on tuition demand and how well the profile of each tutor matches with the client’s requirements
English Tuition In Singapore makes tutor recommendations based on the tutors’ known track record in successful tutoring
The submission of the tutor’s profile to the client does not bind the client to engage the services of the tutor, and remains subject to confirmation by the client
FEES AND COMMISSION
Once the tutor and the client confirm a match, the tuition rate is non-negotiable once agreed upon
The client will pay to English Tuition In Singapore the fees amounting to half of the fees payable in the first 4 calendar weeks. This amount shall be deemed as the commission to English Tuition In Singapore for matching the tutor to the client, and will be borne by the tutor who will forgo receiving the said fees paid by the client. Therefore, no payment will be made by the client to the tutor for half of the lessons conducted in the first month
Thereafter, the client will pay the tuition fees directly to the tutor. The tutor shall collect all fees due to the tutor from any student or parent after the first two weeks. English Tuition In Singapore will not assist in any recovery of fees
Tuition fees are to be paid every 4 weeks to the tutor, unless otherwise agreed between the client and the tutor
If lessons are postponed during the first two weeks, the commission payable to English Tuition In Singapore will be based on the tuition session conducted the following week(s)
ACCEPTANCE OF ASSIGNMENT
Upon receiving an Assignment Description, the tutor may apply for the Assignment. If the tutor is chosen by the client, the tutor is bound to conduct the lessons as stated in the Assignment Description, or as mutually amended in subsequent communications
Paid trial lessons can have 1.5 hour or 2 hour durations
The tutor will be teaching at the student’s residence at the mutually agreed upon time, unless specified and agreed by the client and the tutor. The tutor must provide his/her own transport to the client’s home/lesson location
Once the client accepts the tutor’s candidacy, the client will not be able to change the schedule of the First Lesson
Clients are allowed to make changes in the schedule after the First Lesson is over. However, English Tuition In Singapore hopes that this is not necessary as the tutor has already reserved that slot of time for the client. If the client wants to make changes in the schedule, the client is to consult with the tutor to ask if he/she is able to change the schedule or not
The tutor is to bring your academic transcripts/certificates and relevant documents for your first lessons with the client for verification purposes
If the tutor is unable to conduct the First Lesson of a tuition assignment, the tutor must call English Tuition In Singapore at least 3 business days before the actual lesson. If the tutor fails to notify English Tuition In Singapore of the tutor’s cancellation/postponement, an administrative charge of S$30 will be imposed on the tutor
If the tutor fails to contact English Tuition In Singapore with a valid reason to inform us about the tutor’s absence from the lesson, the tutor’s profile at English Tuition In Singapore may be blacklisted. This will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis
You are encouraged to carefully and responsibly consider before committing to an Assignment
CENTRAL PROVIDENT FUND
Tutors agree to be responsible for all required obligations to the Central Provident Fund as a self-employed person. This is because, you, as a tutor, are providing private tutoring services under a contract of service to the client as an independent contractor. The tutor is not an employee of English Tuition In Singapore, and the tutor accepts full responsibility for all income tax and other liabilities payable in relation to any fees generated from a tuition assignment
TUTOR REASSIGNMENT OR CANCELLATION OF ASSIGNMENTS
If at any time the client is not satisfied with the tutor, the client may request a replacement or termination. However, the client is responsible for paying the fee for the number of lessons given prior to termination
English Tuition In Singapore will discuss separately with the client and the tutor regarding future tuition arrangements, and English Tuition In Singapore will change the tutor for the client. There will not be any extra charges for the change and the client needs to pay just for the tuition session(s) that have been conducted
If the client cancels a tutoring assignment before the tutor completes the agreed number of lessons for the first 4 calendar weeks, English Tuition In Singapore assumes full legal claim to 50% of the tuition fees for the total number of lessons delivered in the month. For example, if the client had requested for 8 lessons per month, but the assignment was cancelled after the 5th session, English Tuition In Singapore will be paid commission for the 5 lessons conducted
English Tuition In Singapore will not be liable for any payment charges or issues arising from the cancellation of tuition assignments by the client
If the client terminates the Assignment because the tutor is often late, skips lessons without valid explanations etc, the tutor will bear English Tuition In Singapore’ full commission fee
If the tutor cancels the Assignment after confirming acceptance (that is, the client’s contact information and address have been given to the tutor), the tutor will need to compensate the commission which amounts to 50% of the fees payable (as stated in the confirmation Whatsapp, sms, email or other forms of electronic communications) for the first 4 weeks
If the tutor wishes to cancel a Tuition Assignment before the end of the first 4 calendar weeks, the tutor is to inform both English Tuition In Singapore as well as the client at least 3 days before the next lesson date. English Tuition In Singapore will recover our legal share of the one-time commission of 50% of the fee for the first 4 calendar weeks from the tutor. Tutors are encouraged to have a long-term commitment as the clients have vested their trust in you
The client has the right to terminate the tuition if the tutor is unable to produce the documents certifying his/her credentials. In such cases, the tutor has to pay English Tuition In Singapore the amount of money equivalent to the tuition fee for the day as commission
The tutor will receive full or pro-rated payment for the number of lessons rendered, provided the tutor has complied with the Terms of this Agreement
While English Tuition In Singapore tries to provide clients and tutors with the closest tutor match possible, we cannot guarantee a satisfying match. We hold no responsibility or liability for problems, unhappiness, or disputes that are a result of the tutor or client. English Tuition In Singapore will not act as an arbitrator for any disagreements that arise between tutor and client. However, English Tuition In Singapore may try to mediate whenever possible and reserves all rights to blacklist any party who is at fault. English Tuition In Singapore reserves the right to terminate or deny services to any client or tutor at any time
LEGALIZATION OF NON-WRITTEN CONTRACT
At the point of time which the contact details of the clients or tutor(s) are given to either party, English Tuition In Singapore reserves all rights to collect the full commission once the tutors start providing services to the client. This is regardless of whether the tuition cancelled or postponed
In view of the implementation of the recent Personal Data Protection Act, we require your explicit consent to contact you for tuition related matters. By registering with English Tuition In Singapore, you have given the English Tuition In Singapore network explicit consent to contact you through various electronic media, including Whatsapp, calling, and sms, etc.
