How much $$ do you spend on kid’s tuition per month?

With rising costs and increased learning needs, financing our children's education is no longer a simple walk in the park. Discuss with other parents about how they are managing their finances to cope with their expenses.

I think i probably let the tuition centres earn too much.... :heresmyfish: My girl’s tuition/enrichment squanders away about $1500/month. How much do you guys spend on tuition fees every month? Can share here?

I spent $700 on my daughter's Chinese tuition per quarter. That is about $240 per month. My daughter is Sec 4 this year.

$180 on DD1 Maths and $700 on DD2 enrichment. Will need to cut down on DD2 enrichment next year as it is on the high side.

an average of 200-300 / subject / month over 3-4 subjects comes up to about $600-1200/ month... those who can 'afford to pay lesser' really have to drive their kids everyday for the subjects unless kids r self motivated.

Finally tahan till my DD1 finished her Grade 8 Piano last week. Savings of $280 will now go to DS2 and DD3 higher piano fees as they move to next grade level.

DD1,DS2 and DD3 tuition are at home, paid abit more for 1-1 and also to save on travelling time. Tuition fees including piano more than $4k per month.

If they can practise by themselves, don't think I need tutors already. They asked for help as they have been failing and struggling. I don't get tutors to improve their grades if they are already doing ok. Too much stress and financially draining.

$4k per month is for 1 kid or 3 kids?
