  4. Do I need to do anything after I have confirmed a tutor?

    You would have received the confirmation SMS/email with the tutor's contact information. If you want to reschedule the first lesson, or share more information about the student, feel free to contact the tutor directly. Otherwise, no action is needed from you.
     

  5. What should I take note of, for the first lesson?

    On the actual day before the class starts:

    • View tutor's photo ID to verify identity
    • View tutor's academic credentials for confirmation
    • Ensure at least 1 adult is around during tuition
    • If possible, arrange for the tuition to be conducted at an open area, especially if the tutor is of the opposite gender

    After the class ends:

    • Discuss with the tutor to understand his/her methods
    • Ask your child about the lesson to determine if the tutor is suitable to continue

     

  6. Can I change the tutor after we have started the tuition?

    Yes. In the event where you find that the tutor is not a good fit, do contact us for a replacement. There is no penalty. We will match another tutor to your child.

    For e.g. if the tutor charges $30 per hour and has already completed 4 hours of lessons prior to your request, you will have to pay $120.

    You will pay Start Tuition for the lessons that has been conducted. Start Tuition will settle the payment with the tutor, as you will not be meeting him/her anymore.
     

  7. Can I change the tutor after I have confirmed the tutor?

    Yes. There is no penalty imposed. There is also no minimum period to complete before requesting for the tutor change.
     

  8. When and how do I pay the tuition fees?

    Payment is due at the end of 4 weeks. You will pay Start Tuition 50% of the first month's tuition fee, and the remaining 50% to the tutor. Thereafter, you will pay the tutor in full.

    For cases where the assignment is terminated before 4 weeks, you will pay Start Tuition the full amount of the incurred cost. We will handle the payment to the tutor.

    Payment may be made via bank account transfer to DBS Current account 023-904676-2 or mail us a cheque.
