The transition from a four to five years of secondary school study to a two years academic study in Junior College (JC) is a big challenge for many students in Singapore. Unlike Polytechnic or Technical Institution where students will obtain their diploma upon graduation, it is only through good A-level results that can determine their advancement to the University.

Most JC students have never been in a lecture theatre before and being first-timers, they usually face difficulties in keeping up with the pace of lectures and tutorials.
During the two years course of academic study in Junior College, students will face tremendous pressure as the level of difficulty is higher and more demanding than Secondary level. Parents spend heavily on tuition fees on top of the JC school fees paid to MOE. Hence, it is important to cultivate good learning habits, practice good time management skills and improve on multitasking skills. To do well for A-level, it is crucial to have a good foundation and the best way is to look for Junior College private tuition.
The JC cut off points is getting more competitive in recent years and this keeps students on their toes in constant fear from secondary level onwards as they compete for the best grades to get into the JC they want.
Getting into a top JC in Singapore remains a priority for many parents and there is a rise in students using the JC DSA - Direct School Admissions for secondary schools to get into a Junior College of choice. Popular ones such as NJC DSA, VJC DSA, ACJC DSA have seen a high number of applicants every year. Most have JC open house at the start of the year to woo students and give an orientation on how JC life will be like.

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 :)
Tutor city a great platform to find the right tutor for your child as they help to provide the one that fits your child’s schedule and your budget. I truly appreciate benson’s quick responses to all the queries and arranging the right tutor for my son. Thank you Benson! You are doing a great job!!
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.
Great support with the search for the tutors for A Level exams. Daughter enjoys her lessons and we started to see the results from the first week.
