If your child misses a lesson with valid reason (sick, school commitment etc), your child will be given a make-up session with the duration being half of the lesson that he/she missed. In other words, if your child missed a 2 hour lesson, he/she will be given a 1 hour make-up lesson.
A quick note that as the tutor, I give my best in preparing the materials and prepping for each class. As such, I also expect my students to be working together with me to get their As. Should your child miss a lesson with an invalid reason (overslept, attended a friend’s party etc), no make-up lesson will be given.
*These pricing plans are fees for 4 A Maths tuition lessons of 2 hours each.
#This is the per hour rate. In other words, since each lesson is usually 2 hours, if you choose to sign your child up for one to one tuition, then the cost will be $200 for that lesson.
**No registration fee and materials fee because I believe in charging for quality teaching and materials, not for the cost of storing some information in my database.
*** The fee listed is based on scheduled lessons and not on attendance. This is to encourage students to not miss lessons as I believe that every lesson is necessary. Also, having consistency is key to developing the student to his/her full potential.
Should I sign my child up for the private lessons? He/she has not been doing well!
I generally feel that most students that I’ve come across do not require private tuition. Personally, I feel that the value of private lessons has been exaggerated. For academic subjects, I feel that having one teacher teaching a class of students is usually beneficial, provided that the students listen.
I will encourage you to sign your child up for the group lessons because of several factors:
- Having a supportive classroom environment
Most students are mature enough during upper secondary to focus properly during lessons. Hence, you do not have to worry much about your child being distracted during lessons. In addition, I will ensure classroom discipline.Attending group tuition allows your child to make new friends and have more motivation to attend tuition after a long day at school.
- Benchmarking with peers
In a classroom environment, your child can better measure and benchmark his/her own performance among his/her peers. This helps your child to effectively gauge how well he/she is doing relative to peers of same age group, and then adjust his/her effort accordingly.
I will only encourage attending private lessons under one of such scenarios:
- Weak lower secondary foundation coupled with failure of E and A Math. This implies very weak foundation that may need extensive revision of past years’ topics that I cannot otherwise afford to go through during group lesson time.
- Failure of multiple subjects. In such a situation, the student may need extra attention and guidance, especially towards study methods. This is where I can lend my expertise of being an elite student.
What if my child doesn’t improve after attending your tuition?
This is a common worry among parents- what if I waste my money on a tuition which doesn’t improve my child’s grades? If such an occurrence happens, I will investigate the cause of not improving. Did I neglect your child? Did your child put in the effort (1 hour of self study for every hour spent at my centre) that I expect all my students to? If I find that all the essential factors are fulfilled, then your child’s tuition for the following month will be totally free. In addition, I will take your child under my personal coaching. I will do so by offering a 1 hour private coaching session in which I assess and evaluate your child’s studying habits. All of these are valued at a total of $400-610, so I will make sure both you and your child are getting your value for money.
