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?
Effective Tuition 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 Effective Tuition half of the fees payable in the first 4 calendar weeks. This amount is the commission to Effective Tuition 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 Effective Tuition 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. Effective Tuition 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 Effective Tuition and we will transfer the tutor’s fee to him/her.
Tutors are not authorized at any time to collect the payment on Effective Tuition’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 Effective Tuition’s bank account.
If the client fails to pay us, Effective Tuition 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, Effective Tuition 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 Effective Tuition at least 3 business days before the actual lesson. If the tutor fails to notify Effective Tuition of his/her cancellation/postponement, an administrative charge of S$30 will be imposed on him/her.
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.
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), Effective Tuition will ask if the tutor is able to accommodate the request.
Effective Tuition 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.
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 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 pro-rated 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’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 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 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 Effective Tuition the amount of money equivalent to the tuition fee for the day, as commission.

We hold no responsibility or liability for problems, unhappiness, or disputes that are a result of the tutor or client.
