The Best Primary School Home Tutors In Singapore

Are you a parent who gives primary school tuition to your own kid after work no matter how tired you are?
Is your child disinterested in what you say and simply can't sit still?

In Singapore, the education system is demanding right from the start as children embark on their true education path at the early age of 6 years old. Primary school students are exposed to arduous challenges and tremendous stress as they are introduced with stricter discipline and rules, longer school hours and a need to be more independent in various areas. It is therefore important to build a strong foundation and introduce the right learning habits right at the beginning.

3. Syllabus Familiarity

The International and MOE syllabus keeps on changing. The tutor you choose needs to be familiar with the updated syllabus so that they can teach correctly. After all, you wouldn't want their teaching to contradict what is being taught in the school.

Tutor City always highlights experience so you can be sure that the tutor is well-informed about the syllabus. It will help you make a decision that is best for the academic grades of your child. Once you do, you will see an improvement in results in no time.

Totally recommend Tutor City
Thamathip Sooksombat 2 months ago

TutorCity recommended Ms Kristen Zuriel who taught me for 1.5 years for the final lap of my IB (International Baccalaureate) journey. We focused on Eng Lang & Lit, & ToK (Theory of Knowledge). In addition, she assisted me even in Internal Assessments for subjects like Business Management. She taught me concepts & strategies which pulled my grades up. Her plethora of different study techniques would work for any student resistant to studying, or, to the subject. She makes difficult concepts easy-to-understand. Her dedication meant turning up at wee hours & sitting through gruelling hours for consecutive days to achieve my personal goals. Beyond academics, she taught me valuable life lessons & inspired through personal example to make my mark in society.
