Why General Paper (GP) Tuition?
General Paper (GP) is a level-up subject of English taken in Secondary School. GP is a challenging subject in JC, mainly due to the demand for rigour and range in a student’s analysis. JC students might run the risk of writing unnecessary points in their essay if they are not well-equipped with good essay structure skills and therefore will not meet the question demands.
Unlike short narrative stories in secondary school, JC students have to write long and formal argumentative essays for GP and express their creative and critical opinions and response on a vast variety of global issues such as history, economics, current developments and many more. Lack of thorough understanding in any areas would decrease a student’s chances of scoring well. Often, JC students struggle mainly because of a poor command of English language and lack of content knowledge on diverse GP topics.
If your child is struggling with his GP essays, and need urgent help in building up on his knowledge of GP topics, he will need a good and experienced JC GP tutor to equip him with the knowledge of the general topics & argumentative essay skills, hence pushing for excellence in this crucial H1 subject.

GP Home Tuition VS Tuition Centre
With high demands for General Paper (GP) tuition for A level, after-school sessions are designed to help JC students boost their grades, keep up with their peers in school and boost their performance for A-level GP examination. In general, it only comes down to 2 options: going to a A level GP tuition centre or hiring a private JC GP tutor.
Most Singaporean parents often are misguided by the cheaper tuition rates offered by A level GP tuition centres. This is mainly because of the cost savings of mass teaching as tuition centres conduct group tuition where your child will receive shared attention of a single tutor with other 8 to 10 students paying the same amount of tuition fee. Cheaper tuition rates in tuition centres are no longer justified anymore.
The median costs in most tuition centres for General Paper Tuition are of S$60 per hour, with certain “branded” tuition centres charging even higher. At BrightTutor Home Tuition Agency, you can easily find an experienced undergraduate part-time tutor for $45 per hour, whereas full-time tutors or MOE teachers costs slightly higher. If your child is not doing well in GP, we strongly encourage you to consider 1-to-1 A level GP tuition, so that the GP tutors can focus and work on your child’s weaker area.
Many JC students find it hard to learn well in a group environment, especially if your child cannot adjust to the speed of teaching in group tuition. Often, General Paper tuition centres teachers will not slow down to help only one student, and you child be left behind and not keep up with the rest of the class. For private tuition, GP tutors provide 1-to-1 effective tuition and gives your child 100% attention. A private tutor will incorporate lesson plans according to the learning habits and speed of learning of your child. That is why home tuition is more effective and the private tutor will work on your child’s doubts and boost his progress in the subjects, allowing him to perform better in exams. Best of all, your child does not have to waste time on travelling as it is known that JC students are always packed with numerous activities in school.
Over the decade, with the increasing level of difficulty in A levels, exams has gotten harder and students have more questions and doubts while studying. Tuition centres tend to give your child more content and focus lesser on the key concepts of the subjects. This will compound their lack of understanding in the subjects, creating more doubts for the student. With a private GP tutor, be rest assured that your child will be guided and he will gain a competitive edge than his other peers through dedicated and effective home tuition. Why should we short-change our child and let him/her fight for the teacher’s attention with 10 other kids in a tuition centre?
In comparison, GP home tuition has more advantages over tuition centres. At BrightTutor, we firmly believe that home tuition is the most effective solution for your child. Our tuition rates are one of the lowest amongst other tuition agencies because our tuition agency is always recruiting and verifying new experienced A level GP tutors to meet your tutoring requirements as well as tuition budget.
