Aspire Hub - Discussion

Postby Beastquest » Thu Dec 30, 2010 6:16 pm

Hi!

Would just like to ask for feedback regarding Aspire Hub? I am looking for Chinese and English tuition services near our neighborhood and it just so happen that Aspire Hub opened a new centre near our place. They say they have a group tuition of 1 teacher per 6 students max and they focus on strengthening the weak points of the child. I have kids who will be going to P5 and P3 next year by the way and I was hoping to strengthen their oral and composition writing. My kids are basically smart kids who need just a little bit of a push since they have slided down to Band 2 from Band 1 due to their oral and compo results.

Any feedback will be greatly appreciated! Aspire Hub's fees are not so cheap so I would like to know whether they are really worth the money (around 577 bucks per term for Chinese P5).

Thanks so much!

Somewhere in Aug I also did ask for feedback & review on this centre but that is no reply.

Are you sure the maximum group size is 1:6? What I know is 1:10.

They have just opened a centre in Nex mall so I don't really have a basis on the teacher student ratio. This is only based on what they have told me when I went there this week to inquire on their courses.

Was there this week too. Looking for A level GP. They told me ratio for A level is 1:4 and Secondary is 1: 6. Fee no cheap, but not sure if they are good

Their fees seem rather steep & I also would not go commit if there is no good review about the training centre.

quality of teaching

Postby call a spade a spade » Fri Apr 15, 2011 10:50 pm

aspire hub has a very small team of teachers who are good (and they are very thinly spread since the company seems to be suddenly opening a number of branches all over singapore) and the rest are really just warm bodies... so it's really up to one's luck if you get a good, mediocre or even downright lousy tutor.
The teaching's done round robin style and there's no real central resources unit so, the quality of results really depends on the quality of the tutors.
Students go into class and let the tutor know which topic they want help in and they are assigned relevant questions to do while the tutor then goes around to help other students before coming back to check on them. So, essentially, you are paying for 2hours but only about an hour at most, of attention.
They may claim 1-6 ratio but I've heard of tutors conducting a class with 9 pupils in one time slot...
