Re: Is Groupon a scam?

Meal coupons from big companies are safe to buy. I try and avoid the smaller ones as when many people buy the coupons, they cant deliver their end of the meal and I ended up having to constantly call and try and reserve a place. The same goes for the hair and beauty places. Except that im more skept...

Re: All About Market Rates of Private Tutors

For my daughter's tutor, although she is experience and NIE-trained, she charged at relatively low ($38/hr) as my sec 4 daughter had been with her for 4 years (since Primary 6). However, she told me that because of her experience and experience over the years, she will generally ask for a slightly ...

Re: All About Tuition Agent Fees

What is the current tuition fees (EL, Math, MT) for primary 1? This depends on the teacher. I am an ex primary school teacher and back when I used to have private classes, I charged 50/hr for lower primary. However, I know many other teachers who charge 40/hr. I think that it depends on the teacher...

Re: All About Tuition Agent Fees

What is the current tuition fees (EL, Math, MT) for primary 1? Is it necessary to have tuition at P1? Every student has different learning needs. Thus, some parents prefer to hire tutors on those subjects students may find difficulty in. Even at a tender age at K2 or P1 levels. I have students as y...

Re: Looking for - Primary School Tuition \ Enrichment

Hi everyone, I am an ex MOE primary school teacher and I recently left the service to spend more time with my family. Since I left, I have had many parents approach me to ask for tuition.

Re: All About Market Rates of Private Tutors

$70 per hour is okay for a current top school teacher, but do check the school's website to make sure she's really working there. I agree that its important to check the school website. This might not really be related to the topic, but I would like to share so that parents wont be scammed. My husb...

Re: Tony Buzan Learning Centre - Community Thread

I have some experience teaching at Tony Buzan. I was there for some time and I have taught the writing classes before. I find that coming from a teacher's POV, its not bad. They have to produce an essay a week. Thats much more than what schools give them. Each written expression requires them to com...
