In Singapore, the average teacher teaches 21.4 students in primary school and 17.9 students in secondary school. Thanks to excellent laws put in place to give everyone an education, the enrollment of individuals between the ages of six to 20, is 87.4 percent and the literacy rate of the public is 94.6 percent. In total, the mean years of schooling of someone aged 25 and above are 8.8 years. This shows just how many students are in school but it also shows the difficulty that many schools have in ensuring students get all the training they need.
For many parents, the alternative is home tuition. While home tuition is not a replacement for schooling, it is a supplement to it that allows a student to learn more and to excel more through learning about the subjects that they are interested in, in the learning method that is best for them.
The thing is, home tuition costs money and many parents do not know how they are going to pay for it. Well, home tuition is actually a cost-effective solution to making sure that your child gets the learning that they need. It is much cheaper than both public school and private school and it gives your child one-on-one training that they need to be successful in life.
The best thing to do is to work out a budget in advance so that you know how much you are going to be paying not only for the home tutor, but also for the supplies that will be needed by the tutor. Once you know how much you can afford, you can find a tutor who is going to meet those financial requirements while providing your child with all the training they need for excelling in school.
The best thing to do is to find a home tuition agency and tell them what you can afford. The home tuition agency will then work with you to find out what will work best to provide you with the tutor who can do what you need for what you can afford. You also have to remember that the more you pay, the better the tutor you get. If you get a great tutor, your child will excel to a much greater degree than they will if they get a poor tutor. Hence, paying more gives your child more opportunities later in life. That financial hit can be hard at first but when you think of the confidence your child gets through the tutoring, you will see that the financial hit is well worth it.
The questions you need to ask yourself are: Can I afford this? If I can afford this, how much can I pay? What can I do so I can afford a more expensive tutor? Does my child need a tutor? What are the long-term benefits for my child if I find a good tutor that I can afford?
Once you answer these, you will know what you can get for your child.
