Online Tuition At Affordable Rates. Safe and Convenient.

With the recent coronavirus pandemic, schools have adopted home-based learning and private tutors have to switch to online tuition during the circuit breaker.

"On 21 April 2020, PM Lee announced tighter measures and an extension of the circuit breaker to 1 June 2020", so parents still cannot engage home tutors.

Learning however, has to continue. So why not consider having online tuition at the safety of your home?

Is online tuition better than home tutoring?

  1. Convenience: Flexible scheduling as both parties can log in anytime. Use the time saved to rest more or prepare for the lesson etc.
  2. Safety: It’s definitely safer since there is no physical contact so no chance of contacting the virus
  3. Cheaper: The hourly rate of online tuition is usually $5 to $10 cheaper than face-to-face tuition as the tutor need not travel. Rates start from $20 per hour
  4. Record Digital Lesson: Free softwares like Zoom, Google Meet and Webex have recording functions so you can replay the lesson for revision at any time.

There are some downsides of online tutoring:

  1. Technical glitches - Families who cannot afford good computers or fast wifi often encounter errors and system failure, software crashes etc
  2. Lack of human touch – Some students find it hard to connect or communicate with their tutors. It’s like talking to a robot.
  3. Distractions at home - Students who stay in small homes or have big families often disrupt the lessons with noise or calls for attention.

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.
