My friend's boy failed his sec 1 Mid year Math this year. After having tuition for less than 3 months, he has improved greatly. I guess for this case, tuition is absolutely needed.

I always felt that if a child is not doing well, it could be the issue of a lack of discipline on his part to listen and understand during class (maybe boys), or it could be the teacher being unable to teach to a large class... I'm sure a lot of it is lost in class through the chitter chatter or dreaming away. If learning is done right in school, child can do away with tuition for awhile. Of course some tuition teachers are really good and give your child an added advantage academically, that could be a good reason to want tuition.

I definitely think students shouldn't get tuition in Secondary 1. They should be given some time and space to discover their learning styles and form productive and permanent habits. Qualities like self motivation, discipline and inquisitiveness cannot be taught in a tuition centre.
