What Private Tuition Is All About
In Singapore, a Private Tuition also refers to institutions that give tutorial services for individuals ranging from very young children to adults. It also includes the matching of several tutors to a particular child or adult, recommending them to the prospective client (which usually is the parent or guardian of the child), surveying and selection by the client, and the formalization of an agreement or contract after the client has made a final choice. This is the standardized procedure followed by companies and customers.
Similar to a private school, a private tutor naturally commands a higher premium for its services. Although, the procedures mentioned above that takes place before the finalization of a formal agreement is free, since these agencies provide them as a value added incentive to their services. As a first world leader in Asia, home tutoring is becoming a standard practice by parents. Singaporean children are expected to lead their Asian counterparts in educational progress.
Private Tuition For Young Children
A Private Tuition that specializes in providing tutorial services to young children operates like a Montessori school, nursery, or kindergarten. In this case, however, the one to one interaction between the tutor and the child is the focus of the service. This is unlike the usual classroom setting where the teacher has several students at one time. It is easy to see the consequent high expectations on Singaporean home tutors.
Private Tuition Long Term Benefits
Tutors of this nature are expected to have highly specialized skills in evaluating the learning strengths of a child and match them with appropriate learning and teaching strategies. They also effectively identify a child’s weaknesses and either make use of compensatory techniques or equivalent remedial methods to overcome the weaknesses.
