Hire qualified tutors from singapore's most professional tuition agency

Please let us know if you are the parent/guardian of the student or if you are a student looking for a tutor
Eg 2 hours each session, once a week, Mondays anytime from 7pm to 9pm etc
The majority of tutors in Singapore currently prefer to conduct online lessons. Thus, if you are OK with lessons being held online, it is likely that there will be more experienced tutors who apply for your assignment.


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.


You just need to pay for the tuition session(s) that have been conducted. There will not be any extra charges for the change.


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.


Success Tutors 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 Success Tutors half of the fees payable in the first 4 calendar weeks. This amount is the commission to Success Tutors 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 Success Tutors 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. Success Tutors will not assist in any recovery 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 Success Tutors and we will transfer the tutor’s fee to him/her.

Tutors are not authorized at any time to collect the payment on Success Tutors’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 Success Tutors’s bank account.

If the client fails to pay us, Success Tutors 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, Success Tutors 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 Success Tutors at least 3 business days before the actual lesson. If the tutor fails to notify Success Tutors of his/her cancellation/postponement, an administrative charge of S$30 will be imposed on him/her.

If the tutor fails to contact Success Tutors with a valid reason to inform us about the tutor’s absence from the lesson, the tutor’s profile at Success Tutors may be blacklisted. This will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.


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), Success Tutors will ask if the tutor is able to accommodate the request.

Success Tutors 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.


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.

Success Tutors will discuss separately with the client and the tutor regarding future tuition arrangements, and Success Tutors 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, Success Tutors 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, Success Tutors will be paid pro-rated commission for the 5 lessons conducted.

Success Tutors 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 Success Tutors’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 Success Tutors as well as the client at least 3 days before the next lesson date. Success Tutors 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 Success Tutors the amount of money equivalent to the tuition fee for the day, as commission.


Success Tutors 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.

Success Tutors will not act as an arbitrator for any disagreements that arise between tutor and client.

However, Success Tutors may try to mediate whenever possible and reserves all rights to blacklist any party who is at fault. Success Tutors also reserves the right to terminate or deny services to any client or tutor (actual or potential) at any time.

Hire An Exceptional Tutor. Make A Huge Difference To Your Exam Grades

Latest MOE Syllabus And Marking Schemes

Our qualified and experienced tutors are thoroughly familiar with the current MOE syllabus, textbook content, and exam requirements.

We will help you effectively prepare, so that your answers can fit the requirements of the teachers marking your exams.



The most important skill that students need to cultivate is: Knowing what to write impactfully

You have good grammar, you spell well and you have your own blog.

But the teachers for almost all the subjects that you are taking tell you that most of the time, what is write is off-point, and the content is weak.

The only way to improve grades is to have effective writing skills. You can start with these fundamental writing skills that will definitely help you whether you are now in primary school, secondary school, junior college, polytechnic or university.

Bryan Garner, author of The Harvard Business Review Guide to Better Business Writing, says that writing is not a gift that we are born with. It is a skill that we cultivate.


If they give you 10 seconds to verbally tell them the answers to their questions, what would you say? Analyze your audience carefully, because you have to tailor your response according to who your audience is, and what they expect from you

Identify your main theme

The answer that you give in those 10 seconds is likely to be the main theme of your essay/answer

Create an outline

This might be one of the most important aspects of effective writing skills – because when we are able to plan well, the essay will turn out to be awesome.

We cannot just start writing and expect to go somewhere, just like we cannot go for a walk and not know what the route and destination is.

Whether the length of your formal answer is comprehension-length or essay-length, you should first outline your answers before you write the entire script out. 

If comprehension-length, you should write your answers in point form.

If essay-length, you can write either in point form or in short sentences.

Outlines are essential because they help you identify if any of your answers are useful, in which order they should appear in your answer and –importantly – help you organize your thoughts/argument

First sentence 

The first sentence is equivalent to the heading of your essay/comprehension-length text. Use it to attract the reader’s attention, and to impress him/her

Last paragraph

When you proof-read/check your document, you should start from the last paragraph. This greatly helps you to spot errors because your mind will be more alert to any mistakes that are not flowing in the order that it is used to

Be direct 

State your point at the beginning. Many students hide their main message in the middle of the passage or essay. Before they get there, they have so many other thoughts and distracting statements that the reader will not know what the student is trying to put across. State upfront, then build your case throughout that passage. If your opening statement is weak, the rest of your text will be weak – or worse, weaker

Practice daily 

Spend 10 to 20 minutes every day on writing. It doesn’t have to be for school work. It can be for fun. Watched a nice Korean drama? Spend 10 minutes writing what you liked or didn’t like about it. Or you can write about food, the bus trip home, why you like that green pair of shoes

Write for yourself, not for others to read. But maintain standards high enough that your school teacher will smile at. The more you practice, the more you challenge yourself with different forms of writing – the much, much better you will get at writing

Avoid sounding officious 

The moment the reader starts to feel that the writing is verbose, they will mentally tune out. Instead of writing “Please revert to me”, write “Please reply”. Using big words is not the same as showing maturity of thought, or that you are well-read

Quick results 

If you use at least one of these methods every day in your writing, you will see a difference in the quality of your writing – and an improvement in your grades – within 2 semesters. Hundreds of our students use these tips every year and it has worked for them. We want them to work for you too!
