How does AEIS Tuition with Tutor City’s home tutor solve the struggles students face?

AEIS tuition student struggle

Navigating the initial steps of Singapore’s MOE education system in government schools is no small feat, which is especially true if your child is seeking to secure a place in the local government-funded primary and secondary schools as an international student. 

A significant milestone in this journey is successfully passing the AEIS exams, a pivotal journey that seems to present a steep learning curve for many students like your child, who is entirely new to the Singapore education system and well-known in the world for its demanding and robust curriculum. 

The core of the challenge lies in adapting and learning the MOE Maths and English syllabus, whose standard differs considerably from the curriculums your child is familiar with in their home countries. It can be daunting, especially if English is not your child’s native language. 

Very often, our AEIS tutors find a huge learning gap between the maths and English syllabus and content international students learn in their previous schools and that of the more stringent and comprehensive curriculum in Singapore’s MOE schools. That is why it is nearly impossible for parents or students to take it upon themselves to adequately prepare for the AEIS entrance exam just by simply learning from the textbooks. 

Specialised help in the form of professional AEIS home tuition will significantly increase the chance of your child successfully securing a place in MOE school. The outcome might be different without the support of a knowledgeable expert who will help your child adjust his or her learning style and gain comprehensive coverage of the MOE maths and English topics to ensure a seamless entry and smooth transition into the Singapore education system. 

We have identified the most common challenges faced by students, and our AEIS tutors have adopted tailored tutoring approaches to address them effectively. 

  • Huge learning gap due to differences in curriculum standards in previous schools, especially in subjects such as Maths and English. Students struggle to quickly adapt and sufficiently prepare for the assessment
  • Poor English language proficiency, especially when English is not the native language. Trouble understanding the questions and comprehending passages.
  • Struggle with writing composition due to poor sentence structure, limited vocabulary or bad grammar. 
  • Lack of knowledge in answering techniques for English open-ended comprehension-based questions
  • Lack of familiarity with the Singapore mathematics methodology to solve complex maths exam open-ended questions
  • Failure to show workings to gain marks for AEIS mathematic exams
  • Inadequate revision strategy due to not being familiar with the typical exam questions that will most likely be tested
  • Confusion and lack of clarity of the syllabus content, including the basic concepts and the teaching methodology 
  • Lack of sufficient time to learn the entire syllabus before sitting for the AEIS exam due to the relocation schedule being too close to MOE’s stipulated AEIS exam dates
  • High levels of stress and anxiety since the exam determines whether your child can secure a spot in the school while he or she is still acclimatising to life in Singapore. 
  • Lack of the relevant practice and revision materials that align with AEIS exam format and type of questions 
  • Unaware of the answering techniques to score points among the different types of exam questions
  • Careless mistakes and failure to employ checking mechanisms to spot mistakes in exam papers


Why AEIS Home Tuition is Effective to Improve Scores

Are you and your child feeling anxious and do not know how to prepare for the upcoming AEIS exams? Do you want to avoid any potential disappointments? 

AEIS home tuition can provide the assurance and structure needed to avoid confusion and pave the way towards achieving the ideal AEIS exam results.

1. Bridging the learning gap and enhancing English and Maths proficiency within a shorter period of time. AEIS tuition focuses on tailoring lessons to suit your child’s learning needs, which is important if your child is struggling with English. Instead of a 6-month AEIS programme, which is typically conducted by a tuition centre in a group setting, AEIS private tutors can conduct assessments to determine your child’s knowledge gaps in view of the MOE syllabus is tested and work quickly to ensure your child gains a comprehensive understanding before the assessment. Learning is optimised and improvement is seen within a shorter time period.

2. Developing skills in composition writing and open-ended responses to achieve excellent English scores. For international students who have weak English proficiency, the AEIS English test for secondary school level is the most dreaded component as they do not know what to expect and how to prepare. AEIS tuition helps hone your child’s writing skills, offering guidance on constructing coherent sentences and developing a robust vocabulary. AEIS tutors can impart the necessary exam techniques for understanding passages and answering open-ended comprehension questions to gain marks.

3. Gain clarity and in-depth explanation of Singapore Mathematics methodology. Maths is an important component of the AEIS exam for primary and secondary school entrance. Singapore maths methodology is notoriously well-known to be challenging and hard to understand if your child does not have a good foundation. It explores maths topics in depth to solve complex problems through methods such as bar modelling, heuristics, higher order thinking skills. AEIS tuition helps familiarise your child with these unique approaches, guiding them step-by-step to employ these methods and show their workings clearly to secure marks in the exams.

4. Guidance to practice and revise strategically for exam confidence. AEIS tuition can provide your child with a structured revision plan that aligns with the AEIS exam format and question types and ensures that the entire syllabus is adequately covered before your child sits for the assessments. AEIS tutors ensure that your child grasp important concepts and acquire exam strategies through regular practice, setting a firm ground for them to excel.

5. Intensive crash courses are available despite tight relocation schedules. The relocation process can be hectic, often leaving your child with limited time to cover the entire syllabus or have sufficient revision before the exams. AEIS tuition, with its flexibility, can expedite the learning process through intensive lessons, ensuring that the materials are covered efficiently, even when the relocation schedule is close to the AEIS exam dates.

reasons why AEIS is effective


What is the importance of AEIS Tuition? Why do international students need it?

AEIS international student

For foreign parents who are new to the Singapore MOE education system, trying to navigate the competitive landscape can be daunting, especially for your child who is looking to secure a place in the mainstream government primary and secondary schools through the Admissions Exercise for International Students (AEIS). 

Conducted annually by the Ministry of Education (MOE) during September, the AEIS is an important stepping stone in your child’s academic journey in Singapore. As you find your way around the unfamiliar terrain, you can be overwhelmed by the intensity and pace of Singapore's Maths and English curriculum. 

AEIS private home tuition is the solution to help your family overcome the stress of exam preparation through tailored and specialised support in the conducive learning environment of your own home, where your child will be comfortable to raise questions and clarify concepts as compared to a group setting. The focused one-on-one AEIS tutoring sessions provide your child with undivided attention from the AEIS tutor to identify and strengthen areas where your child requires help at their own pace instead of following a standard lesson plan in tuition centres. 

Given the absence of past year papers for parents’ reference to gauge the difficulty of the test, an AEIS tutor who is well-versed with the MOE syllabus is extremely useful to provide curated materials such as exam questions from top schools, summarised notes and worksheets that are relevant to the AEIS assessments and give a detailed explanation on the solution to enhance your child’s understanding. 

Ultimately, besides preparation for the AEIS exam, a competent AEIS home tutor can help your child to be academically ready and keep up with their peers during the first year in a MOE primary or secondary school. This can alleviate their fears and worries on top of coping with transitioning to a new school environment

AEIS Assessments for International Students’ Enrollment in Primary School

If your child is planning to enter a local government MOE school at the Primary 2 to Primary 6 level in January of the following year, he or she will need to apply for the AEIS admission tests, which take place in July every year. Placement is made based on your child’s performance in the tests as well as the availability of vacancies in the schools.

However, prior to application for the AEIS tests, your child needs to take the Cambridge Assessment English (CAE) and meet the requirements of the Cambridge English Scale (CES) 12 months before your application to sit for the AEIS assessments. You can find the required CES score according to your child’s age here

If your child qualifies to sit for the AEIS, which will usually take place in September, he or she will sit for the AEIS-Primary Mathematics test. Depending on the level at which your child is enrolling, he or she will take the test based on the MOE mathematics school syllabus preceding the one your child is enrolling in. For example, your child will be tested on the syllabus for P4 if he is enrolling in a P5 level.

different AEIS tutors

AEIS Tutors in Singapore: The different profiles

Are you familiar with the different categories of AEIS home tutors in Singapore? Are you aware that each tutor profile has its own distinct advantages and disadvantages that can greatly impact your child's learning experience?

To assist you in this task, below is an overview of the different tutor profiles and their strengths and weaknesses.

Full-time AEIS Home Tutors

Similar to other working professionals, full-time tutors dedicate their careers to offering private lessons in AEIS test preparation for foreign students, often clocking over forty private tuition hours a week. They provide tuition to international students of diverse abilities, educational backgrounds, and schools. Full-time AEIS tutors typically hold qualifications at the bachelor’s level.

Usually, full-time tutors have a strong command of the subject matter knowledge, such as a deep understanding of mathematical concepts or an excellent command of the English language. They possess effective communication skills to impart complex concepts to students and connect with your child meaningfully during AEIS tuition sessions.

Besides MOE syllabus and content knowledge, full-time AEIS tutors have accumulated effective tutoring techniques, lesson planning, and student assessment methods, allowing them to deliver their AEIS private tuition lessons in a clear and engaging manner.

Advantages of Engaging Full-time AEIS Home Tutors

Typically, full-time tutors can have a few years up to decades of teaching experience. This makes them very familiar with the AEIS syllabus in Primary, Secondary School and PSLE and O levels exams, including the materials to prepare for lessons.

Full-time AEIS tutors can readily customise their teaching materials and approaches to suit the unique learning styles of different students. 

Since they are full-time professional tutors, they usually possess good communication and interpersonal skills to establish rapport with your child. This establishes a conducive and supportive learning environment for your child, especially when they are new to Singapore and its education system. They are also able to simplify the interpretation of complex issues, events, meanings and the impact behind them clearly and effectively since they have met many other international students who will have the same challenges as your child. 

Full-time AEIS tutor will incorporate additional learning materials, this could include providing AEIS resources such as paper year papers, summarised notes, MOE school materials/worksheets and relevant readings for your child to strengthen their maths and English proficiency.

Since full-time AEIS tutors rely on tutoring as their main source of income, they are highly dedicated and reliable when it comes to sticking to the tuition schedule. 

They also understand the significance of establishing trust with your child in a private tuition setting, and they are likely to continue to tutor your child as they progress through the academic levels. 

They are less likely to switch students frequently, recognising the importance of building a stable relationship with their tutees. This is important as it is greatly beneficial to have a tutor who is very familiar with your child’s abilities and learning habits.

Disadvantages of Engaging Full-time AEIS Home Tutors

Full-time AEIS home tutors typically command a higher hourly rate than their part-time counterparts. This arises from the wealth of expertise they accumulate through years of dedicated tutoring experience. 

In addition, they invested extra time in lesson planning, research, and selecting relevant AEIS resource materials. Some even go the extra mile by creating their own exclusive worksheets and sample exam questions. These efforts contribute to the overall value they provide, justifying the higher rate for their comprehensive and tailored instruction.

Successful full-time AEIS tutors are known for their impressive track record of delivering favourable outcomes and often face tuition scheduling constraints. Given the competition of parents to secure quality tutors for their children, these star tutors may have limited availability for parents to secure their preferred tuition slots. This is because they are committed to a regular group of students who continue to seek their expertise as they advance through the academic levels.

Working Professionals AEIS Part-time tutors

Part-time AEIS tutors often balance their tutoring responsibilities alongside a main full-time career, utilising home tuition as an additional income stream. These tutors hail from a range of educational backgrounds, bringing diverse perspectives to their teaching. Some may have previously taught full-time in government Primary or Secondary schools or tuition centres before transitioning to other professional pursuits.

Advantages of Engaging Part-time AEIS Home Tutors Who Are Working Professionals

Opting for part-time tutors for AEIS tuition can be a wise choice for parents seeking quality and cost-effective solutions within their tutoring budget. These tutors possess a unique blend of tutoring experience and academic qualifications, enabling them to deliver high-quality AEIS preparatory tuition lessons.

One significant advantage of engaging part-time AEIS tutors is the affordability they offer compared to both Ministry of Education (MOE) tutors and full-time tutors. This helps alleviate the financial strain for families with multiple children or allows for better allocation of tuition fees, enabling students to receive lessons in other subjects as well.

Part-time AEIS tutors share a genuine passion for the subject. This enthusiasm can have a positive impact on your child, igniting their interest in English or Maths. They have a strong desire to impart knowledge and help foreign students assimilate and adapt to the local education system and student life in Singapore. 

Drawing from their experiences working with international students, these tutors can emphasise the significance of scoring well in AEIS assessments. Besides academic assistance, they can provide mentorship and advice to help your child get used to the school environment in Singapore, including local cultures, norms and getting along with their peers.

Some part-time tutors with more years of tutoring experience are well-versed in the MOE school curriculum. Look out for part-time tutors who have received positive feedback and testimonials from their current or past students, demonstrating their effectiveness. 

Disadvantages of Engaging Part-time AEIS Home Tutors Who Are Working Professionals

One limitation of part-time AEIS tutors is their relatively less flexible schedule, as they juggle their tutoring commitments with their day jobs. This may result in the limited availability of tuition slots, which are usually offered after office hours on weekdays or during weekends. Due to their busy work schedules, rescheduling lessons might happen sometimes. 

Part-time AEIS Student Tutors

AEIS tutors in this group consist of local university students or individuals pursuing undergraduate degrees or master's/PhD programmes. These tutors offer AEIS tuition to supplement their income and benefit from a close age gap with their tutees. This results in a higher level of energy and enthusiasm in their teaching style.

Advantages of Engaging Part-time AEIS Home Tutors Who Are Students

AEIS student tutors offer the most cost-effective tuition fees compared to other tutor profiles. It is wrong to assume that student tutors provide subpar AEIS tuition lessons. Many of them choose to tutor part-time because they have achieved excellent English or Maths grades during their O or A levels and possess the proficiency and skills which they can effectively impart to your child.

Their recent experience navigating Singapore's rigorous education system and the stress of a high-stakes national exam make them more empathetic towards your child's feelings of anxiety and nervousness in sitting for AEIS tests. This enables them to quickly establish rapport with your child and provide both mentoring and emotional support throughout their learning journey.

This is especially valuable for students who struggle to communicate their difficulties to authority figures like teachers or parents. The student tutor can relate your child's concerns to the parent, enabling you to provide better support.

Student tutors also offer greater flexibility in scheduling tuition lessons, and makeup lessons can be easily arranged. Parents can take advantage of this flexibility by scheduling additional lessons with student tutors for intensive AEIS tuition lessons before the assessment dates.

Disadvantages of Engaging Part-time AEIS Home Tutors Who Are Students

When considering student tutors, it's important to recognise that they lack formal teaching certification and that their average tuition experience typically ranges from one to four years. 

With limited experience, some student tutors may not have encountered a wider variety of tutees and might have challenges in handling all types of students. Parents should carefully assess whether the selected student tutor's personality aligns well with their child's needs and provide regular feedback to ensure effective tutoring in AEIS preparation.

Student tutors may face tuition scheduling constraints due to exams, co-curricular activities (CCAs), or other obligations. It is important for parents to communicate in advance and be prepared for some flexibility when arranging AEIS home tuition sessions with student tutors.

To ensure reliability and trustworthiness, parents should consider engaging a reputable tuition agency that conducts a thorough screening and shortlisting of student tutors. This ensures that the tutors are genuinely committed to tutoring your child and that their qualifications and education history are valid.

MOE-Trained AEIS Home Tutors

AEIS home tutors in this category consist of two profiles: the MOE teachers who are currently teaching in schools or ex-MOE teachers who have left service and no longer teaching in schools. 

Tutors in this group are officially trained in NIE and are professionally certified teachers who have teaching experience in Primary or Secondary Schools. 

Advantages of Engaging MOE-Trained AEIS Home Tutors

Tutors in this category are highly in demand, as parents are willing to allocate a higher tuition budget to assist their struggling child in attaining the desired AEIS scores and preventing failure in securing a school placement.

MOE-trained tutors possess extensive familiarity with the school syllabus and are subject matter experts. They possess in-depth knowledge of how the MOE Maths and English curriculum and syllabus are designed and may even have experience in crafting examination papers and understanding the marking criteria. 

By leveraging their expertise, they can provide valuable guidance on key areas for your child to focus on, such as effective writing techniques to make their compositions stand out among other candidates. 

Furthermore, they are well-versed in teaching strategies to support weaker students and can impart practical techniques that can significantly improve your child's AEIS test performance within a relatively short timeframe. Their wealth of experience, having taught numerous students in classroom settings, contributes to their ability to deliver impactful instruction.

Disadvantages of Engaging MOE-Trained AEIS Home Tutors

MOE-trained AEIS tutors are in high demand due to their teaching qualifications and proven effectiveness, which often leads to them charging the highest tuition rates compared to all the other tutor profiles. 

The supply of current MOE-trained school tutors is limited due to new regulatory procedures implemented by the Singapore Public Service Division in 2021. These regulations stipulate that school teachers can only offer tuition if approved by their school principal and for valid reasons. It is challenging for MOE school teachers to be available for AEIS home tuition, contributing to their scarcity in the AEIS tutoring market.


different aeis tuition types

Different Types of AEIS Tuition in Singapore

1. AEIS tuition in the tuition centre

AEIS tuition in a tuition centre can take place in either a large or small group setting, ranging from around 6 students to sometimes 20 or more. Students are typically required to travel to a physical location for tuition classes that follow a fixed schedule. 

Some tuition centres specialise in providing AEIS test preparation, allowing them to concentrate on the curriculum, effective teaching strategies, and tailored study materials, setting them apart from other centres.

In comparison to private AEIS tuition, there is limited freedom to choose the specific AEIS tutor, especially one that aligns with your preferred timeslot and desired tuition centre outlet. Classes conducted by popular AEIS tutors also tend to be quickly filled, often resulting in being placed on a waitlist with an uncertain waiting period. 

Additionally, commuting to the tuition centre adds extra time and effort, and scheduling makeup lessons can be challenging due to the limited flexibility caused by the need to accommodate other students and classroom availability.

2. AEIS tuition at home

Parents have the option to hire an AEIS tutor for personalised one-to-one tuition either in the comfort of their own home or at the tutor's location if deemed more suitable. This provides the flexibility to choose a timeslot that is convenient for both parties involved.

A private AEIS tutor differs from a classroom teacher in that they do not deliver lessons in a formal and larger classroom setting. The skill sets required to be a good tutor vary from that of a teacher. In a home tuition setup, effective home tutors with strong interpersonal skills can excel in aiding weaker students to prepare for AEIS more efficiently. Home tutors are usually more patient and are used to answering questions or providing explanations until the student fully understands the content. 

The intimate and private setting allows for the development of rapport and credibility between the tutor and student, enhancing the students' joy and learning experience compared to a group setting.

3. Private small-group AEIS tuition

In order to manage tuition expenses, some tertiary students or their parents may opt for a private AEIS tutor to conduct small-group tuition sessions with 2 to 4 international students.

These sessions can take place at a designated location, such as the tutor's residence or a co-working space, with the hourly tutor fees divided among the group members.

Apart from the cost-saving aspect, small-group private AEIS tuition is popular due to the opportunity for students to exchange ideas, engage in discussions, and share personal perspectives. This collaborative communication fosters the exploration of different viewpoints, thereby enhancing the depth of their learning experience.

Learning in a group setting also promotes motivation, as the interactive nature of the sessions encourages active participation and creates anticipation among tutees to attend the AEIS tuition sessions. This social interaction contributes to increased engagement and an enriching learning journey.

4. Online AEIS tuition

With the rise of online learning in the post-COVID era, both tuition centres and private home tutors now provide the option of online AEIS tuition for students who prefer this mode of learning. 

This alternative can be considered when scheduling conflicts arise, such as when an AEIS tutor cannot accommodate your preferred time slot due to the need to commute after a prior lesson. Opting for remote AEIS tuition proves advantageous when minimising your child's interactions with others to avoid falling ill, especially when closer to the AEIS test dates. 


How to select an AEIS home tutor for tuition lessons?

Here are the most valuable qualities you should look for in an AEIS home tutor:

1. Experience teaching international students

Experienced teachers are incredibly beneficial to your child. That is because their experience gives them the skills to handle any student with ease. You can consider the AEIS tutor’s track record in tutoring foreign students as they can understand the challenges your child faces being new to the Singapore education system. 

At Tutor City, we always highlight the experience and qualifications of our tutors. It will aid you in making the right decision.

2. Positive feedback

Some tutors' qualifications may look great on paper, but are they just as great at tutoring? You can only know this by reviewing the feedback from previous clients. It will give you a small glimpse into the tutor and how they teach.

At Tutor City, we provide testimonials from previous parents and students. You can read them to understand what the tutor is like and if they will suit your needs. Such feedback will help you make a well-informed decision in no time.

3. Familiarity with MOE Maths and English syllabus 

Familiarity with Maths or English MOE syllabus is important to help your child adequately prepare for the assessments and perform well. It helps ensure time is not wasted during the tuition sessions.

At Tutor City, we highlight all the necessary information to help you make the right decision. All our tutors are familiar with the syllabus to guide students and help them excel in the AEIS tests.

4. Enthusiasm and patience to teach international students

Passion is the driving force that fuels the continuous refinement of teaching methodologies and the ability to motivate students. Foreign students will benefit from a patient and encouraging tutor, especially if they are weak in their English or conceptual understanding of Maths problems. 

It's important to find an AEIS tutor who possesses genuine enthusiasm and is committed to assisting your child to reach their full potential. You can gauge their passion and dedication by having an open conversation with the tutor and setting clear expectations from the start.

An effective AEIS tutor should be eager to discuss and answer questions raised by your child.

I was looking for a Maths tutor in May this year for my daughter who was in Sec 2. She has been failing her Maths since Sec 1 and is really in need of help. My preference is someone who stays in the same neighbourhood for ease of travel and of course, good in Maths. Davis is quick to respond and recommended Ms Celine. Thank you Davis for connecting us. Ms Celine has done a great job with her teaching methods. My daughter scored an A2 for the final year exam which is a vast improvement. Ms Celine, you are a gem! Here’s a review from the tutee for her tutor: She went through all the chapters in the textbooks and taught me whatever concepts I did not understand. She also focused more on my weaker topics until she felt that I mastered them. When she finished all the chapters and I had mastered them, we only did practice papers until exams came. She also provided extra tuition near the exam days. Overall, she has really helped me improved and she is not strict and working with her was fun :)

I reached out to Tutor City for a tutor which has experience with teaching English to dyslexic kids. A few promising profiles of tutors were sent and I choose one. The outcome was a good one. The tutor was experienced and knew how to handle the challenges. Within a month I could see marked improvements in certain areas. I am impressed with the snappy service and profiles sent over. And the eventual positive outcome of the tutor I choose for my kid.
