TRIAL LESSON


Can I request for a trial tuition session?


We understand it is vital that your child is studying under a right tutor so that your child will be more receptive to the teaching. . Yes, trial lesson(s) will be provided upon request and we have some tutors who even offer FREE trial class whereby they don’t charge a fee if you are not satisfied with their first lesson. Do call us and check with us about our trial lesson(s).




If I find the tutor not suitable after several lessons, can I change?


Yes, you are encouraged to observe the first few tuition sessions. Feel free to feedback to us if you find that the tutor is not suitable. You can request for a change to another tutor who may suit your child better. There will not be any extra charges for the change and you just need to pay for the tuition session(s) that have been conducted.





MATERIAL AND SCHEDULE


Will the tutors have teaching materials? Do I need to prepare the assessment books for the tutor?


Experienced tutors usually have their own teaching materials. But if students have their own assessment books, feel free to let the teacher know so that they can make the appropriate arrangements.




If my child is unwell or have school activities on the tuition day, do I have to pay for the missed session?


One of the advantages of having a private tutor is its flexibility. There is no need to pay for the missed session as tuition fee is calculated based on number of lessons attended.

When your child cannot attend a lesson, please inform the tutor in advance. You can reschedule a replacement class in that week or lesson can be postponed to the following week and you will not be charged for lessons that are not attended.
