      Frequently-Asked-Questions

      Q: What are the types of tutors available?

      To simplify things, we group our tutors into three main tutor categories:

      Part-Time Tutors – refers to private tutors who doing it part-time. Most of the tutors here are still schooling: A-level graduates, Diploma students/graduates, or Undergraduates. To a lesser extent, there are also University graduates and working professionals offering tuition part-time and they fall under this category. Part-time tutors are the cheapest option for home tuition in Singapore.

      Full-Time Tutors – refers to full-time private tutors who teach as a profession. Full-time tutors may/may not be university graduates but often have significantly more teaching experiences than part-time tutors as they tutor lots of students 1-to-1 as well as take up jobs in tuition centres teaching groups of students in classes. The actual qualifications and experience of a full-time tutor can vastly differ between individuals, hence so does the tuition rate they command.

      MOE/IB/IGCSE School Teachers – refers to ex/current school teachers either from MOE or from private and international schools. Tutors under this category tend to be the most experienced and qualified in private tutoring and thus command the highest tuition rates. Be prepared to pay a premium in order to engage these teachers successfully.

      Q: Do I have to pay any agency fees?

      A: The agency commission is deducted from the tutor fees. This means you do not pay anything extra agency fees – our services are essentially free as long as clients follow and act according to our terms and conditions.

      For instance, you must facilitate the process for us to claim the commission on the tutor. SmileTutor’s agent fee on the tutor is generally 50% of the 1st month of tutor fees. Once the assignment’s details such as schedule, rate, and first lesson is confirmed, our tuition coordinator in contact with you will send you an official invoice via email with the confirmation and payment details. You will transfer this amount to us directly.

      Q: What if the tutor is not suitable after X number of lessons?

      A: You may inform the coordinator at any point after the first lesson if you feel that you wish to cancel the tuition. You will be required to pay for the lessons conducted but not anything more!

      However, note that once you have confirmed the assignment to book the tutor in quote, there is a binding contract to complete one full lesson and you may only request a change of tutor or terminate the tuition only after that 1st lesson. If you decide to change your mind before the 1st lesson even commenced, the fee for the unfinished first lesson may be charged as an administrative fee.

      Q: Can I change or cancel my tutor if I am not satisfied with the current one?

      A: Yes, of course. If the provided tutor does not meet your needs, you may simply inform the tuition coordinator in contact with you regarding the cancellation or request a change. We will promptly make the necessary arrangements. Do note that you are still required to make payment to SmileTutor for all lessons already conducted.

      Q: How do I make the payment?

      You may make a bank transfer via ATM, ibanking or Cheque. Upon confirmation, payment details will be provided in the official email invoice sent to you. If you have any doubts, you can always contact us directly.

      Please note that for all payments, it is your responsibility to ensure that the bank receipt is kept as proof of transaction made via cash deposit transfer. Please also ensure that you notify the agency upon transferring for verification.

      3. Registration, member account, security, username, and password.

      To register and become a “member” of the Website, you have to be in good standing and not a person who has been previously barred from receiving our services.

      When you register, SmileTutor may collect information such as your name, birth date, gender, race, occupation and personal interests. It is due to client’s preferences. There is no violation of Article 12 of the Constitution of the Republic of Singapore.

      Users who wish to register with SmileTutor are required to provide accurate, valid, complete and current information about themselves as prompted by registration forms provided. You agree to update your information should there be any changes, in order to keep registered information actual, complete, true and accurate. If you provide information that is not accurate or updated, we may terminate your access to the Website and our Services. We are not responsible for any failure in providing the Services, which result from information that is not true, accurate, current and complete.

      SmileTutor reserves the right to use your registration information for it’s intended purpose, for instance posting a tutor’s profile in public for attracting clients or sending it to prospective clients directly. Or, for instance, providing the contact number of a client to a tutor who has arrived at their doorstep. Nevertheless, your personal information would not be public. Such information as your name, password, telephone number, date of birth, etc. should not be public, as it is private one. For full information, look at our privacy policy.

      When you create an account, you are the sole authorized user of your account. You shall be liable for the preservation of the secrecy of your password/login and for all activities that transpire on/within your account. You are liable for any actions or omission of any user(s) that access your member’s profile information that, if undertaken by you, would be deemed a breach of these Terms and Conditions. It shall be a responsibility to notify SmileTutor immediately any unauthorized access or use of your password and account or any other breach of security. If you ever find out or suspect that someone accesses your account without authorization, you are advised to inform us immediately. SmileTutor shall not be held liable for any loss and damage arising from any failure to comply with this term of use.

      4. Rates, Commission, and Payment

      All currency references are in Singapore dollars (SGD). You shall be responsible for payment of all levies, duties or taxes that are imposed by taxing rules for any payment or fees you may collect through using our services.

      Tuition rates listed on our website are merely guidelines. The exact price for tuition services may differ depending on client’s requirements, market conditions, availability of tutors, etc. The tutors can establish rates by themselves. But the final decision concerning price shall be accepted by confirmed agreement of both parties via an official confirmation invoice sent by SmileTutor.

      Clients shall pay the invoice and inform SmileTutor within three days of the due date. It is the client’s responsibility to ensure that the bank receipt is kept as proof of transaction made through cash deposit transfer.

      Tuition rates agreed upon should not be changed unless clients and tutors mutually agree. SmileTutor reserves the right to claim its commission based on the original agreed upon tuition rate.

      In most cases, we will collect the conducted tuition fees directly from the client (sometimes, we also collect payment from tutor) and will then subsequently resolve any payment issues owing to the tutor. Thus, for cancelled tuition arrangements, clients are required to deal directly with the agency. If clients decide to pay the tutor directly and bypass the agency, clients shall be made liable to SmileTutor for the commission amount if we fail to collect our commission from the tutor, in addition to any administrative fees incurred by the agency in collecting the fees.

      In general, tutors shall not collect the agency commission from the client directly. If they do so, they shall inform the agency immediately. At notice by the agency, they shall make payment to the agency in full within 3 days. Tutors, who fail to follow these instructions, shall be liable to pay the full amount of payment and additionally, administrative fees, incurred by the agency in collecting the payment from the tutor.

      SmileTutor reserves the right to change commission due to non-fulfillment of tutor’s obligations or other reasons. Clients are liable to pay tuition fees for all attended lessons, regardless of how satisfactory the lessons were. For more information – read the website.

      Refunds may be made to the client’s bank account in case of violations of terms because of the tutor’s fault, or other reasons. Client can be additionally charged for improper or unfulfilled payment obligation. SmileTutor warns about this with messages.

      If there are disputes or concerns regarding tuition fees between tutors and clients, we will provide assistance, to our reasonable means, to help tutors to claim fees from clients and vice versa. However, SmileTutor shall not be legally responsible for any payment disputes between tutors and clients. Clients shall inform the agency and the tutor (if the client has the tutor’s contact) if a postponement or cancellation of any lesson is needed. If the tutor is only informed less than two hours away to the start time of the lesson, clients shall be liable to pay for the loss time and transport cost to the tutor. The amount payable will be 50% of 1 lesson. The client shall pay this amount in cash immediately on the tutor’s next visit or via bank transfer to the tutor if there is no more next visit. Cancellations or postponement of lessons shall not affect our commission amount.

      5. Essential provisions relating to the relationship between the client and the tutor

      •The client may request a replacement tutor or cancel at any time after the first
      lesson, but will still have to pay the attended tuition fees to SmileTutor.
      •The tutoring period is usually stated clearly as we arrange the tuition assignment.
      In the event that the tutoring period is not specified, all parties should be prepared to commit for at least 3 months.
      •There is an unspoken agreement to complete minimum 1 lesson upon tutor confirmation. If clients decide to cancel after 1 or more lessons for any reason, only conducted lessons shall need to be paid for and SmileTutor will refund any the remaining fees paid in advance. However, for cancellations before first lesson has even commenced, clients will be liable for administrative fees no less than the equivalent of the first lesson fees which must be paid by the due date specified in the invoice.
      •Clients shall inform the agency and the tutor (if the client has the tutor’s contact) if a postponement or cancellation of any lesson is needed. If the tutor is only informed less than two hours away to the start time of the lesson, clients shall be liable to pay for the loss time and transport cost to the tutor. The amount payable will be 50% of 1 lesson. The client shall pay this amount in cash immediately on the tutor’s next visit or via bank transfer to the tutor if there is no more next visit. Cancellations or postponement of lessons shall not affect our commission amount.
      •The tuition schedule and the date and time of the first lesson shall be fixed and hold to.
      Clients are allowed to renegotiate the schedule with tutors. Any changes in the frequency of lessons in the first 4 weeks of lessons must be made known to SmileTutor. SmileTutor may adjust commission under such conditions.

        Is your child STRUGGLING to learn Malay Language?

        Challenges Faced

        It’s common for parents to have a hard time learning or teaching their child the Malay language in Singapore. Malay is one of the three official Mother Tongues (Chinese, Malay, Tamil) frequently spoken by Singaporeans of Malay descent. It is also an official language in Brunei, Indonesia and Malaysia.

        In Singapore, the official and most widely-spoken language is English. Because English is used almost in every setting: home, work, school. More and more Malay students are neglecting their Malay mother tongue, especially in English-speaking homes. For this reason, trying to master the mother tongue (e.g. Malay) is like learning a second or third language, which is far from an easy task for most students.

        Our Solution

        Private Malay tuition can ASSIST your child in a whole LOT of ways.

        • Do better in Malay language:Home-based Malay tutors can help students overcome their fear and dislike for Malay
        • Spark new desire for mother tongue:Experienced tutors can renew the interest of students in Malay language by how they present and practice the language with them
        • Excel in standardized examinations:Tutors bring in refreshing ideas, exam tips, and innovative methods that help the student score with ease
        • Learn based on the current syllabus:Well-grounded Malay tutors work with the latest MOE syllabus for the Malay language to keep knowledge gained relevant
        • Outshine their peers:Malay tuition assists students with comprehension, composition, and speaking the mother tongue eloquently
        • Go with preferred Malay tutor:Having the freedom to choose a Malay tutor that connects well with your child is a big plus, and solid foundation for success

        Malay isn’t that easy to learn

        Your child can go on in circles (on their own) trying to learn the mother tongue. However, the easier and quicker way to learn Malay is by taking lessons from a qualified Malay tutor. But, finding a suitable Malay tutor can be quite a challenge in Singapore. Because you have to find a Malay tutor who can teach the language effectively, and is also flexible enough to adapt to your timetable.

        • Does your child get intimidated by how difficult and frustrating it is to gain mastery in Malay?

        • Are they dragging their feet because they can’t see how getting grounded in the language would be useful to them beyond merely passing exams?

        • Have you tried to get them a suitable Malay tutor with no headway yet?

        Mastering Malay

        If you are a parent already considering coaching your child in Malay — a more effective approach would be to hire a Malay tutor who has the experience and expertise to help your child master the language

        Aside a busy work and family schedule, you need the right training and teaching experience to be able to impart the right knowledge to your child.

        A good Malay tutor on the other hand is equipped with effective teaching methodologies and is conversant with the current MOE syllabus for Malay language –which ensures great value for you and your child.

        Frequently Asked Questions about Malay Tuition

        Is Malay tuition important?

        Malay is a Mother Tongue so if your child has interests in the language and is even considering taking Higher Malay, this can help them with their PSLE aggregate scores.

        With a distinction in Higher Malay, it can also help them minus 2 points from their O Levels. If they are moving on to JC, they can be exempted from taking Mother Tongue.

        However, if your child does not do well in Mother Tongue, it can also bring down their overall results.

        How do I know if my child needs Malay tuition?

        If your child is constantly feeling stress and failing Malay, then it might be time to consider engaging a tutor.

        Talking to them will also help in knowing when they need help for the subject.

        What are the types of Malay tutors available?

        To simplify things, we group our tutors into three main tutor categories:

        - Part-Time Malay Tutors – refers to private Malay tutors who doing it part-time. Most of the tutors here are still schooling: A-level graduates, Diploma students/graduates, or Undergraduates. To a lesser extent, there are also University graduates and working professionals offering tuition part-time and they fall under this category. Part-time tutors are the cheapest option for home tuition in Singapore.

        - Full-Time Malay Tutors – refers to full-time private Malay tutors who teach as a profession. Full-time tutors may/may not be university graduates but often have significantly more teaching experiences than part-time tutors as they tutor lots of students 1-to-1 as well as take up jobs in tuition centres teaching groups of students in classes.The actual qualifications and experience of a full-time tutor can vastly differ between individuals, hence so does the tuition rate they command.

        - Ex/Current MOE Malay School Teachers – refers to ex/current school teachers either from MOE or from private and international schools. Tutors under this category tend to be the most experienced and qualified in private tutoring and thus command the highest tuition rates. Be prepared to pay a premium in order to engage these teachers successfully.

        How are the tutors assigned to me?

        After making a request via our online platforms (Website, Instagram, Facebook or WhatsApp) or via the phone hotline (+65 6266 4475), our Tuition Coordinators will determine the best available tutor based on your stated preferences and will send you recommendations via SMS.

        You can then ask any questions, request to speak with the tutor via conference call, ask for another recommendation or simply confirm the tutor. If you are uncomfortable with any details regarding the newly

        assigned tutor, you can always request for a different tutor. Our Coordinators will ensure that both parties agree on the lesson details and pricing before confirming the lessons.

        Once you have confirmed a suitable tutor, we’ll send you the lesson details via a confirmation email and you can start preparing for your first lesson!

        Can I request for a specific tutor?

        Sure, if you have any tutors in mind, feel free to give us a call at +65 6266 4475 and let us know the information of the Malay tutor you are looking for. As we have the most extensive database in Singapore, we may be able to find the tutor you are looking for.

        Alternatively, you may view some of our latest available tutors at our ‘View Tutors’ page. From this page you can do some DIY sourcing and indicate your interest directly there. However, do note that the availability of the tutor may not be guaranteed. Our Coordinators will be swift to advice you on the availabilities of the requested tutor and recommend any similar tutors that may be available if needed.

        Can I trust the Malay tutors provided by SmileTutor?

        In 2019, we introduced Quality Score™ which is our proprietary system that grades over 30,000 tutors based on multiple factors such as profile completeness, recent job acceptance, track records, parent reviews, and more. With this system, we are able to ensure that parents & students are constantly matched with the cream of the crop tutors in Singapore. Since we have introduced this system, the quality of our tutors have improved and our numbers of compliments had increased tremendously.

        SmileTutor treats the credibility of our tutor profiles very seriously. All suspicious tutor applications or profiles with missing information are immediately investigated and blacklisted. For tutees who wish to personally verify their tutor's qualifications and identity, you may request that the tutor bring their relevant certificates on the 1st lesson. (We do not to send online documents due to privacy laws). For current school teachers, it is our SOP to remind tutors to bring teacher's pass on their first lesson as a form of verification to give tutee a peace of mind.

        Why do tutors charge different prices?

        SmileTutor does not dictate tuition rates. Each tutor sets their own prices depending on their qualifications, experience, and many other factors such as student’s level, location, timing etc.

        However, when arranging the tuition for you, our experienced coordinators will ensure that the rates are fair and within market rates. We also conduct negotiation when required to try to reduce lessons fees in order to fit within your budget when necessary.

        You may view the latest tuition rates here.

        Do I have to pay any commission fees?

        Our services are free-of-charge for parents and students. You are only required to pay for lessons conducted. A portion of the total lesson fees usually in the first four weeks of lessons will be allocated to SmileTutor as the agency commission. This is deducted directly from the tutor’s fees, so you do not pay anything extra.

        However, there is a 7% GST imposed on the agency commission.  For example, if you engage a tutor for $50 per class for once a week, the agency commission will be $100. Hence, the GST imposed is $7.  This is only a one-off payment only and from 3rd lesson onward there is no GST since you pay the tutor directly. The tutor's fees are not subjected to GST.

        To facilitate the process for us to collect the agency fees, you are required to cooperate with us by transferring the allocated agency commission (usually 50% of the 1st month fees) + GST directly to SmileTutor. Thereafter, you will pay the remaining lessons to the tutor directly. Our Tuition Coordinators will inform you of the full payment details and instructions upon lesson confirmation.

         

        How do I pay for lessons?

        In general, the agency commission charged to the tutor is 2-weeks of active lessons. Payment of the agency commission will be made directly to SmileTutor after the completion of a certain number of lessons whereby the lesson fees equal or exceed the agency commission amount.  After you may paid the agency commission, you may pay the tutor directly for subsequent lessons in any method preferred by both parties

        Do take note that our services are completely free for you. By paying directly to SmileTutor, you are merely helping us to facilitate the collection process of the agency commission from the tutor. There are no additional / hidden fees you need to pay other than the mentioned lesson rates.

        We accept various modes of payment including credit/debit card, online transfer, cheque, and cash. Our Coordinators will inform you of the full payment details during your tutor request.

        Example: Client Mary hires Tutor for $60/lesson at 1 lesson per week. The agency commission is $120 (equivalent to 2 lessons). After Tutor has conducted two lessons, Client Mary transfers to SmileTutor $120. Then, from the 3rd lesson onwards, she is to pay Tutor directly. The arrangement made between Mary and the tutor is to pay every 4-lessons via bank transfer.

        Is advance payment needed?

        You do not have to make advance payments of any kind. All payments are made only after the requisite lessons have been conducted.

        Are there any binding contracts?

        There are no contracts and obligations until you agree to engage our tutors. When any assignment is confirmed, there are guidelines to follow to ensure that both the student and tutor can have a smooth and rewarding experience.

        Where are the Malay tuition lessons conducted?

        The Malay tutoring lessons will be conducted at a pre-determined location according to your preference (usually at your home). If it is not convenient to have tuition conducted at your home, you may request for the tuition to be conducted somewhere else, such as the tutors home or at a convenient public location such as libraries, cafeterias, hostels, etc.

        The location of the tuition lessons should be determined before the confirmation of lessons. Any change in address after lessons have started is subject to both parties approval

        How are lessons conducted?

        One of the main benefits of private tutoring is that we do not adopt a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach. Every Malay tutor has their unique methodology, personality, and teaching style. During the prospecting phase, our coordinators do our due diligence to find out your child’s needs and weakest points in the Malay subject in order to match the most suitable tutor.

        Usually, the first lesson is a ‘getting to know’ phase, where tutors will gauge your child’s interest in the subject, current level of proficiency, and spot areas of weakness. From the second lesson onwards, tutors will generally be more prepared to conduct the lessons according to the student’s learning or syllabus.

        If you are a more hands-on parent, you can also communicate with the tutor and provide suggestions on which area you’d like the tutor to focus more on (i.e. composition writing). As there are no fixed lesson plans or arrangements, both the clients and tutors are free to discuss and conduct their lessons in any way that benefits the student’s learning.

        Can I postpone lessons dates & timings?

        Yes, of course. However, all postponements of lessons must be made at least 24 hours in advance of lessons, except for special cases (such as medical emergencies).

        For postponement of the first lesson, SmileTutor must be informed via phone call at +65 6266 4475 (Mon to Sun 9am-8pm). A confirmation SMS will be sent to you acknowledging your postponement after the call. However, if you are informing at least 48 hours in advance, an SMS made to +65 9014 4201 will suffice.

        Postponements of lessons after the first lesson may be made directly between tutor and tutee.

        Please note that failure to make a postponement at least 24 hours in advance may incur compensation to the tutor for time loss (e.g wasted trips). Generally, the compensation amount is 50% of 1-lesson fee.

        Can I terminate lessons if the tutor is not suitable?

        You may terminate the tuition at any time after the first lesson but must inform SmileTutor at least 24 hours in advance of the next lesson and must pay for all lessons conducted. Terminations made less than 24 hours before the lesson will incur a late charge of 50% of that lesson’s total fee.

        Termination Procedure

        1. Inform SmileTutor via a phone call to +65 6266 4475 (9am-8pm) at least 24 hours in advance before the next lesson

        2. Pay for lessons conducted, half directly to SmileTutor and WhatsApp the receipt to our Finance Dept. at +65 9450 4390

        3. Pay the other half directly to the tutor

        However, note that once you have confirmed the assignment to book the tutor in quote, there is a binding contract to complete one full lesson and you may only request a change of tutor or terminate the tuition only after that 1st lesson. If you decide to change your mind before the 1st lesson even commenced, the fee for the unfinished first lesson may be charged as an administrative fee.

        Will tutors postpone lessons?

        SmileTutor does not encourage tutors to make frequent postponements to the lessons. However, we do encourage you to offer some degree of flexibility as tutors are also human and may fall sick or have sudden emergencies from time to time.

        If the tutor we assigned to you happen to make postponements more frequently than you prefer, you may wish to communicate with them and remind them to stick to the usual lesson schedule. Sometimes, a simple effort to communicate between both parties can go a long way in avoiding any disruption in lessons or last-minute discrepancies.

        If you face further difficulties with your tutor in this area, please feedback to us immediately and we will arrange a new tutor for you.

        Can my tutor terminate the lessons?

        For termination of lessons, tutors are expected to commit for at least the 4-weeks of tuition. If the tutor backs out of an assignment without a valid reason (e.g. illness) before completing at least 4-weeks of tuition, he/she will not be entitled to receive any tuition fees. i.e. You will only be required to pay 50% of the tuition fees (plus any applicable taxes) directly to the agency.

        Unfortunately, we are unable to force tutors to commit for more than 4-weeks. However, we do encourage responsible behaviour and let our tutors know that they should do their best to commit at least until the end of year exams. Most of our tutors follow through.

        What about adding of subjects or students (e.g siblings)?

        You may wish to try out one subject first and then add more subjects subsequently. Or, when starting the tuition, you may find yourself wanting to increase the frequency of lessons or to engage the same tutor for your other children. In any of these cases, please make your request through the agency in order to stay protected and keep the tutor accountable to the agency.

        SmileTutor is not responsible for any engagements made outside of the agency’s knowledge. Hence, tutors and tutees are expected to inform their coordinators of any added lessons or changes to the lessons schedule/subjects/tutees immediately.

        How do I feedback to SmileTutor regarding my good/bad experience?

        You may email us at Email for any feedback or questions that are not answered under this FAQ.

        For private feedback about the agency service, you may contact Rum (Founder) at 97558257 or email him at Rum Email.

        We appreciate your help in providing us accurate feedback so as to improve our service and system.
