For most of us, Secondary School is undeniably one of the most unforgettable chapter in our life. It is an important phase as we make new friends from different backgrounds and forge bonds and friendships. We make mistakes during this rebellious stage – going against our parents and doing all sorts of silly things in the name of fun.
Here in secondary school, our children will spend most of their pubescent years developing traits and core values that will influence and impact the rest of their life. It is also a place where secondary school students will realise how important it is to excel in such a competitive environment, which one cannot achieve through learning alone in school. Secondary school is one of the more crucial times as 80% of the students will inevitably face their biggest challenge in their teenage life: GCE ‘O’Level examinations. This examination will carve out the path for their life and future tertiary education – Junior College, Polytechnic or ITE (Institute of Technical Education).
O Levels will be one of the most challenging examinations your child will ever face yet. That is because students will have to take up 6 to 9 subjects at once. Ever since MOE (Ministry of Education) started partnering with Cambridge back in 2009, the level of difficulty for this examination has been increasing over the years. For instance, students must score at least 85/100 for E-Math paper due to the extremely high bell curve, just to secure an A1 in the O Levels. That applies to most of the subjects taken in the examinations as well.
With this level of difficulty and the high expectations from our education system in Singapore, it is no surprise that our students at the age from 13 to 16 have to face the immense pressure in secondary school. Some students, particularly from elite schools, might be able to manage their course of studies during the four years and ace their examinations. However, this does not apply to most students. With the increasing number if hours in their CCA (Co-Curricular Activities), your child might not be able to prepare or help himself alone. As a parent, isn’t it our duty to help our child to cope and provide them with the extra help they need?

Why Secondary School Home Tuition Over Tuition Centre?
When it comes to ensuring our children get the best help in their studies, we as parents will definitely face the dilemma if you should send your child in secondary school to a good tuition centre or hire a home tutor for home tuition. Secondary school tuition is in fact one of the most popular tuition in Singapore, more so than JC tuition. Why has that been the case?
Undivided Individual Guidance over Shared Attention
In secondary school tuition centres, it is only suitable and effective for quick learners or those with extraordinary learning abilities. This is because in tuition centres, lessons are conducted in a congested environment. Tuition teachers in tuition centres do not pause their lesson often to focus on any individuals that have difficulties keeping up with the rest of the class. As every student has different ways of learning, some students might have difficulties in learning if the teaching technique in class does not apply to them. All these are made worse when many students studying together in the same classroom may increase disruptions and affect the progress of your child.
As for secondary school tuition, it comes with a lot of benefits. Private tutors will be able to incorporate a lesson plan according to the learning habits and ability of a student. The teaching involves just the tutor and your child. With 1-to-1 interaction, students will get complete attention and private tutors can identify and focus on the weak points of your child, allowing him to have the chance to excel faster. Tutors can also find it easier to monitor the progress of your child, and give necessary feedback to the parents.
Elevating your child’s grades for upcoming examinations
Your child will definitely have to face greater challenges in secondary school, after advancing from primary school. The pace of learning is surely much faster in secondary school, compared to primary school. With the difference in the application of concepts in learning, your child will have to deal with 6 to 9 different subjects instead of 4 core subjects back in primary school. Having a Secondary School tutor will ultimately boost your child’s progress in his studies. Leveraging on the experience of the home tutors, your child will be provided with useful tips and exam techniques to use in upcoming examinations and accelerate the learning process. With our experienced secondary tutors, be assured that your child will not only pick up skills that are not available in class, but also some lifelong values that will mould him positively through his life.
