- Singapore's biggest team of 31,000 private tutors: MOE teachers, graduated/undergraduate tutors with Bachelor's, Master's, or PhD in the subject they teach
Get Better Grades has helped students gain 5 to 30 marks in important exams.
You too can now experience the same success that they had achieved.
Get Better Grades was founded by a group of former MOE teachers and a university lecturer in 2012 because we were concerned about the quality of answers that students were giving for their exams and homework.
Many of these students had tutors either at home or in tuition centres, yet the accuracy of their answers were very worrying.
We therefore established Get Better Grades with the primary objective that because parents are investing their money and students are investing their time, that they should get the high quality of tutoring that is equitable to them.
Since 2012, we have carefully built up a large team of qualified tutors who each have between 2 to over 30+ years of successful experience in helping their students’ grades to improve.
Our tutors have university degrees (or are university undergraduates) in the subject that they teach.
The right teacher can change your life (and grades)
Just as 2 medical doctors might disagree whether a hot or cold compress will help in treating their patients’ sprained ankle, the coordinators in our tuition agency make tutor recommendations based on the student’s learning objectives because everyone’s circumstances are unique and important.
The quality of the tutor makes a huge difference to how fast you will learn, how much you learn, what exam techniques you are taught, and the consistency of marks that you gain in every exam, and for all your homework submissions.
Some parents want to hire MOE teachers because they had been trained at NIE-NTU and are familiar with the pedagogical theories and teaching methods.
Other parents insist on hiring tutors who had scored A’s for their own exams because these tutors are exam-smart, and would know how to analyze the questions and information so that they can help their students assemble answers that enable them to regularly score strong A’s.
There is also a group of parents who want tutors to impart academic knowledge to their children attending primary school, secondary school or junior college, in preparation for them to enter university armed with useful content, thought processes and critical thinking skills that will enable them to be on the Dean’s List every year.
For each of our assignments at Get Better Grades, we carefully assess our tuition teachers based on how that home tutor had been able to identify the actual causes of academic weakness in the student, what steps the tutor took to remedy the situation, and what the tutor will do to help the student achieve even more.
While having fun. If lessons are not interesting, the student will reject whatever the tutor is trying to teach.
Get Better Grades sets the bar very high, to ensure that parents and students get the results that they are seeking, given their investments of time and money in the tuition assignments.
Our tuition agency has become the leading tutor agent in Singapore because of the ability of our tutors to deliver grade improvements within the semester – often within that same month – that tuition started.
Whether you want to catch up so that you can continually achieve passes in the subject that you dislike, or maintain AL1/strong A’s for all the subjects that you are taking, we have tutors who can support you.
At least 40% of each age cohort is enrolled in the 6 publicly-funded universities (NUS, SMU, NTU, SIT, SUSS, SUTD).
Another 20-30% are enrolled in private institutions that offer distance education (degrees and diplomas) or have received their degrees from universities with overseas campuses.
It will get more and more difficult to secure well-paying jobs when larger segments of the population have university degrees over the next 10 to 20 years.
It is therefore important to do well in primary school, and to be allowed to take subjects at the banding that will help the student do well enough to earn a coveted place at a competitive course in a good university.
Education is fast-paced in Singapore.
It is possible to apply for universities that are less competitive in other countries. However, one should also consider the tax structure, any perceived or real income ceilings, and cost of living no matter which country we would eventually want to work and raise a family in.
For now, it is important to focus on homework projects that are due in school, as well as the assessments that are around the corner.
Do well in them, and many more career and education opportunities will be available.

Client FAQ - Hire the best home tutors
SINGAPORE’S LEADING PRIVATE TUITION AGENCY
HOW DO I REQUEST FOR A TUTOR?
You can request for a tutor by submitting our online Request Form.
Upon receiving your request, we will Whatsapp you to discuss your child’s academic needs. We will spend the next few hours shortlisting several suitable tutors within our database and network for your consideration.
Our working hours are from 9am to 9pm, seven days a week.
Tuition usually commences within one week after you have selected a tutor.
The paid trial lessons can be 1.5 hours or 2 hours per session.
CAN I CHANGE THE TUTOR AFTER THE TUITION BEGINS?
You just need to pay for the tuition session(s) that have been conducted. There will not be any extra charges for the change.
AM I ABLE TO VIEW THE TUTOR’S CERTIFICATES BEFORE THE FIRST LESSON?
You can request to see the hardcopies of certificates of your tutor to be presented to you during the first lesson.
The client acknowledges that it is his/her responsibility to verify the suitability, credentials and qualifications of any tutor with whom he/she engages.
HOW MUCH DO I PAY FOR YOUR TUTOR MATCHING SERVICES?
Get Better Grades is Singapore’s leading private tuition agency and our matching service is free for students/parents requesting for tutors. This is because our agency commission is charged to the tutor, not to you.
The client will pay to Get Better Grades half of the fees payable in the first 4 calendar weeks. This amount is the commission to Get Better Grades for matching the tutor to the client, and will be borne by the tutor.
Thereafter, the client will pay the tuition fees directly to the tutor.
If lessons are postponed during the first two weeks, the commission payable to Get Better Grades will be based on the tuition session conducted the subsequent week(s).
The tutor shall collect all fees due to the tutor from the parent after the two weeks. Get Better Grades will not assist in any recovery of fees.
PAYMENT OF FEES
The client is required to pay tuition fees only for the number of hours of lessons given by the tutor.
If you decide to stop the tuition after the first lesson, you are required to pay for only that lesson.
Please transfer the fee for that lesson to Get Better Grades and we will transfer the tutor’s fee to him/her.
Tutors are not authorized at any time to collect the payment on Get Better Grades’s behalf.
Tuition fees are to be paid every 4 weeks to the tutor, unless otherwise agreed between the client and the tutor.
We will provide our bank account information for you to make payment via internet banking or ATM transfer directly to Get Better Grades’s bank account.
If the client fails to pay us, Get Better Grades reserves the right to terminate the Assignment. This is in fairness to the tutor, who might need to give the available slot to another client if this Assignment does not materialize.
Once the payment is received, it will be acknowledged in the form of a receipt, issued to the payer (Parent/Requestor/Guardian) via Whatsapp, sms, email or other electronic communications medium. We will also provide details of the Tuition Assignment that can include: tutor’s name, hourly fee, date of commencement of tuition, subject(s), level, duration of each lesson and frequency, etc.
Once the client accepts the tutor’s candidacy, the client will not be able to change the schedule of the First Lesson.
Clients are allowed to make changes in the schedule after the First Lesson is over. However, Get Better Grades hopes that this is not necessary as the tutor has already reserved that slot of time for you.
If you want to make changes in the schedule, please consult with your tutor to ask if he/she is able to change the schedule or not.
The tutor is to bring his/her identity document, academic transcripts/certificates and relevant documents for the First Lesson for verification purposes.
If the tutor is unable to conduct the First Lesson of a tuition assignment, the tutor must call Get Better Grades at least 3 business days before the actual lesson. If the tutor fails to notify Get Better Grades of his/her cancellation/postponement, an administrative charge of S$30 will be imposed on him/her.
If the tutor fails to contact Get Better Grades with a valid reason to inform us about the tutor’s absence from the lesson, the tutor’s profile at Get Better Grades may be blacklisted. This will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
LOCATION OF TUTORING LESSONS
Tutors will conduct lessons at the student’s residence unless otherwise specified and agreed upon by both the client and the tutor.
If the client has a request for the tuition to be conducted at another location (eg a friend’s home), Get Better Grades will ask if the tutor is able to accommodate the request.
Get Better Grades and the tutor will not be responsible if the given location is occupied or not available for use for the lessons and the officially scheduled timings will still be counted as a paid lesson.
TUTOR REASSIGNMENT OR CANCELLATION OF ASSIGNMENTS
There is no obligation or contract to complete a fixed number of lessons, except for the First Lesson.
If at any time the client is not satisfied with the tutor, the client may request a replacement or termination. However, the client is responsible for paying the fee for the number of lessons given prior to termination.
Get Better Grades will discuss separately with the client and the tutor regarding future tuition arrangements, and Get Better Grades will change the tutor for the client. There will not be any extra charges for the change and the client needs to pay just for the tuition session(s) that have been conducted.
If the client cancels a tutoring assignment before the tutor completes the agreed number of lessons for the first 4 calendar weeks, Get Better Grades assumes full claim to 50% of the tuition fees for the total number of lessons delivered in the month. For example, if the client had requested for 8 lessons per month, but the assignment was cancelled after the 5th session, Get Better Grades will be paid pro-rated commission for the 5 lessons conducted.
Get Better Grades will not be liable for any payment charges or issues arising from the cancellation of tuition assignments by the client.
If the client terminates the Assignment because the tutor is often late, skips lessons without valid explanations etc, the tutor will bear Get Better Grades’s full commission fee.
If the tutor cancels the Assignment after confirming acceptance (that is, the client’s contact information and address have been given to the tutor), the tutor will need to compensate the commission which amounts to 50% of the fees payable (as stated in the confirmation Whatsapp, sms, email or other forms of electronic communications messages) for the first 4 weeks.
If the tutor wishes to cancel a Tuition Assignment before the end of the first 4 calendar weeks, the tutor is to inform both Get Better Grades as well as the client at least 3 days before the next lesson date. Get Better Grades will recover our legal share of the one-time commission of 50% of the fee for the first 4 calendar weeks from the tutor. Tutors are encouraged to have a long-term commitment as the clients have vested their trust in them.
The tutor will receive full or pro-rated payment for the number of lessons rendered, provided the tutor has complied with the Terms of this Agreement.
The client has the right to terminate the tuition if the tutor is unable to produce the documents certifying his/her credentials. In such cases, the tutor has to pay Get Better Grades the amount of money equivalent to the tuition fee for the day, as commission.
Get Better Grades is Singapore’s leading private tuition agency in Singapore. While we try to provide clients and tutors with the closest tutor match possible, we cannot guarantee a satisfying match. We hold no responsibility or liability for problems, unhappiness, or disputes that are a result of the tutor or client.
