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.

TRIAL LESSON

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.

PAYMENT MODE

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.

FIRST LESSON

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.

TERMINATION

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.

Copyright © Get Better Grades

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.

ELIGIBILITY

The tutor must be at least 18 years old at the time of registration and must not be a person barred from receiving or providing services under the laws of Singapore or other applicable jurisdiction.

The tutor holds a minimum of GCE “A” Level certificate/has graduated from a polytechnic, and has the necessary good grades, qualifications and experience to provide tuition in the subject(s) that you wish to tutor.

Typically, parents request for MOE teachers and experienced tutors.

The tutor and the client will be solely responsible for any issues arising from the information that the client and you have submitted to us.

USE OF INFORMATION

The primary purpose in collecting personal information is to provide the users with a smooth and customized matching experience.

To ensure success of the Tuition Assignment, Get Better Grades is selective of the type of students we accept as there is a small percentage of students who are not suitable for tuition.

To assist Get Better Grades to make better decisions regarding tuition assignments that match your credentials and expectations, we will ask for your personal information. The personal information collected includes but is not restricting to the following:

 Private information such as name, and birth data
 Contact information such as email address, mobile number and physical residential address
 Qualification information for verification purposes that include:
 grades obtained, certificates, awards received, and schools attended
 Description of tutoring experience and commitment levels
 Preferred teaching locations
 Preferred teaching subjects
 Preferred hourly tutoring rates
 Additional information which we may ask for if we believe the Website’s or Services’ policies are violated

MOE TEACHERS/NIE STUDENTS

Tutors who are current MOE teachers are required to obtain the necessary approval from the Ministry of Education before accepting any assignment from Get Better Grades.

ACCURACY OF INFORMATION

The tutor shall fill in as accurately and completely as possible his/her name, contact details, qualifications, results, relevant experience, subject and level preferences, and will update such information in a timely manner.

The tutor shall not mislead users accessing the website and using Get Better Grades’ services. You will not provide inaccurate, invalid, false or incomplete information to Get Better Grades.

The tutor is solely responsible for any legal liability arising out of or relating to the Tutor Profile submitted to Get Better Grades, and shall indemnify Get Better Grades against any and all claims, damages, liability, loss, or causes of action (including legal fees and expenses that may be incurred by Get Better Grades) in connection with the provision of services by this website.

TUITION REQUESTS AND ASSIGNMENTS

The tutor understands that the information submitted to Get Better Grades pertaining to his/her qualifications may be released by Get Better Grades to the Client(s) for the purpose of tuition matching.

The tutor and the client explicitly agree to Get Better Grades and our network contacting you via Whatsapp, phone call, sms and/or other electronic communications channels to conduct tuition matches.

If the proposed Assignment interests you, please reply us via Whatsapp, sms or through the same electronic communications channel that we contacted you with. There is no need for you to call us.

Please note that Assignments would be confirmed with the client and tutors based on the most qualified match and prompt response from the tutor.

We reserve complete rights to reject any applications for the assignments.

If the tutor is not interested in the Assignment that we contacted you with, please disregard the assignment message.

CLIENTS’ CRITERIA FOR SELECTING TUTORS

The criteria stated by the client for each Tuition Assignment can differ from case to case.

Some clients require MOE teachers, others state their preference for experienced undergraduates with proven experience to improve the grades of their students.

Tuition Assignments are based on tuition demand and how well the profile of each tutor matches with the client’s requirements.

Get Better Grades makes tutor recommendations based on the tutors’ known track record in successful tutoring.

The submission of the tutor’s profile to the client does not bind the client to engage the services of the tutor, and remains subject to confirmation by the client.

FEES AND COMMISSION

Once the tutor and the client confirm a match, the tuition rate is non-negotiable once agreed upon.

The client will pay to Get Better Grades the fees amounting to half of the fees payable in the first 4 calendar weeks. This amount shall be deemed as the commission to Get Better Grades for matching the tutor to the client, and will be borne by the tutor who will forgo receiving the said fees paid by the client. Therefore, no payment will be made by the client to the tutor for half of the lessons conducted in the first month.

Thereafter, the client will pay the tuition fees directly to the tutor. The tutor shall collect all fees due to the tutor from any student or parent after the first two weeks. Get Better Grades will not assist in any recovery of fees.

Tuition fees are to be paid every 4 weeks to the tutor, unless otherwise agreed between the client and 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 following week(s).

ACCEPTANCE OF ASSIGNMENT

Upon receiving an Assignment Description, the tutor may apply for the Assignment. If the tutor is chosen by the client, the tutor is bound to conduct the lessons as stated in the Assignment Description, or as mutually amended in subsequent communications.

TRIAL LESSON

Paid trial lessons can have 1.5 hour or 2 hour durations.

TUTORING LOCATION

The tutor will be teaching at the student’s residence at the mutually agreed upon time, unless specified and agreed by the client and the tutor. The tutor must provide his/her own transport to the client’s home/lesson location.

FIRST LESSON

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 the client. If the client wants to make changes in the schedule, the client is to consult with the tutor to ask if he/she is able to change the schedule or not.

The tutor is to bring your academic transcripts/certificates and relevant documents for your first lessons with the client 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 the tutor’s cancellation/postponement, an administrative charge of S$30 will be imposed on the tutor.

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.

You are encouraged to carefully and responsibly consider before committing to an Assignment.

CENTRAL PROVIDENT FUND

Tutors agree to be responsible for all required obligations to the Central Provident Fund as a self-employed person. This is because, you, as a tutor, are providing private tutoring services under a contract of service to the client as an independent contractor. The tutor is not an employee of Get Better Grades, and the tutor accepts full responsibility for all income tax, insurance and other liabilities payable in relation to any fees generated from a tuition assignment.

TUTOR REASSIGNMENT OR CANCELLATION OF ASSIGNMENTS

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 legal 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 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’ 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) 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 you.

TERMINATION

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.

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.

DISCLAIMER

While Get Better Grades tries 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. Get Better Grades will not act as an arbitrator for any disagreements that arise between tutor and client.

EXCEPTIONAL TUTORS

We are very proud of the quality of the tutors that we are able to attract and retain. Because our tutors receive so many assignments from us, they rarely want to register with other agencies.

Our team of MOE teachers is the largest in Singapore.

Tutors are directly recruited by Get Better Grades. We do not rent databases from other tuition agencies, and we do not rent out our database to licensees nor to subscribers.

Get Better Grades has a team of qualified tutors who specialize in teaching university and polytechnic level modules, for undergraduate students who need private tuition and are studying at NUS, NTU, SMU and universities with a presence in Singapore.

Many new tuition assignments every day, at Get Better Grades.

We are Singapore’s Top Tuition Agency.
