Terms of Service (Tutors) - Tuition Assignments

tuition assignments



Effective Tuition has a strong team of over 36,000 experienced and qualified home private tutors. 


They are current/former school/JC teachers, university/polytechnic lecturers, experienced graduated/undergraduate tutors. 


Their rates range from $30/hr (experienced university undergraduates) to $120/hr (current MOE teachers from top schools/PhD tutors).


Effective Tuition hand-picks our tutors before we introduce them to our clients in each of our latest assignments.


Our tutors are experts in their field and have relevant teaching experience – which we will carefully match to our students’ personalities and learning requirements.


Our tutors help students in their homework, assignments, revisions, and exam preparation while helping them understand complex content.


The tutors whom our clients choose will spend as much time as needed on each specific topic that is required by our students, so that they will understand each topic before you move on to other chapters.


This way, our students will not feel that the subject is too difficult for them to master. Our tutors know which parts to focus on, depending on the individual needs of each student.


Our tutors are very familiar with the current syllabus and exam requirements at the primary, secondary and JC levels. We also have specialist tutors for the PSLE, GCE O Levels and GCE A Levels.


Register, and receive news of our latest assignments.

We work fast, so that your tuition sessions can start soon.

Register For Singapore's Best Tuition Assignments

effective tuition

These are our Terms of Service (Tutors)


Shortlisting takes between a few hours to 3 business days

Step 1 – Let us know your areas of expertise and tutoring experience

Step 2 – Effective Tuition will shortlist tutors whose profiles are best suited to the Assignment.  The Client will then select his/her preferred tutor

Step 3 – Only the selected tutor will be notified



Registration is free of charge.



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



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, Effective Tuition 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 Effective Tuition 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:


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



Tutors who are current MOE teachers are required to obtain the necessary approval from the Ministry of Education before accepting any assignment from Effective Tuition



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 Effective Tuition’ services. You will not provide inaccurate, invalid, false or incomplete information to Effective Tuition


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



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

The tutor and the client explicitly agree to Effective Tuition 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



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


Effective Tuition 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.



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

The client will pay to Effective Tuition the fees amounting to half of the fees payable in the first 4 calendar weeks. This amount shall be deemed as the commission to Effective Tuition 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. Effective Tuition 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 Effective Tuition will be based on the tuition session conducted the following week(s)



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



Paid trial lessons can have 1.5 hour or 2 hour durations



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



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, Effective Tuition 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 Effective Tuition at least 3 business days before the actual lesson. If the tutor fails to notify Effective Tuition of the tutor’s cancellation/postponement, an administrative charge of S$30 will be imposed on the tutor

If the tutor fails to contact Effective Tuition with a valid reason to inform us about the tutor’s absence from the lesson, the tutor’s profile at Effective Tuition 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



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 Effective Tuition, and the tutor accepts full responsibility for all income tax and other liabilities payable in relation to any fees generated from a tuition assignment



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

Effective Tuition will discuss separately with the client and the tutor regarding future tuition arrangements, and Effective Tuition 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, Effective Tuition  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, Effective Tuition will be paid commission for the 5 lessons conducted

Effective Tuition 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 Effective Tuition’ 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 Effective Tuition as well as the client at least 3 days before the next lesson date. Effective Tuition 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



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 Effective Tuition 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



While Effective Tuition 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. Effective Tuition will not act as an arbitrator for any disagreements that arise between tutor and client. However, Effective Tuition may try to mediate whenever possible and reserves all rights to blacklist any party who is at fault. Effective Tuition reserves the right to terminate or deny services to any client or tutor at any time



At the point of time which the contact details of the clients or tutor(s) are given to either party, Effective Tuition reserves all rights to collect the full commission once the tutors start providing services to the client. This is regardless of whether the tuition cancelled or postponed



In view of the implementation of the recent Personal Data Protection Act, we require your explicit consent to contact you for tuition related matters. By registering with Effective Tuition, you have given the Effective Tuition network explicit consent to contact you through various electronic media, including Whatsapp, calling, and sms, etc.
