For Tutors
Registration Requirements

Registering for a Toptutors account is free. You must be at least 18 years old with a minimum qualification of O-level or diploma and reside in Singapore. Toptutors reserve all rights to reject your application.

Tutor Account

You will gain access to your tutor account (also known as Toptutors account) upon completion of the tutor registration process. You shall account for all activities that occur under your account access. Hence, you are responsible for keeping your account and password confidential and for restricting access to your computer. You shall immediately inform Toptutors of any unauthorised access of your Toptutors account. Toptutors reserve the rights to ban or terminate your account at any circumstance. You are not allowed to register again if your tutor account has been terminated.

Tuition Requests

Tuition requests from our customers will be made available to you via SMS, email or phone calls. You accept and allow us to send you tuition requests at any time. When a tuition request is received, you shall response via the same channel with at least a quote of tuition rate per hour. You need not respond to the tuition request if you are not interested in it. Hesitant response may lower the chance of getting the assignment. Responding to any tuition request does not guarantee that you will be offered a tuition assignment. You may stop receiving tuition requests via SMS and emails if you set your tutor account to inactive. We still reserve the right to send any form of requests to any inactive tutor account at any time. To understand further how we manage our tuition requests, just read our frequently asked questions.

Tuition Assignment Offer and Acceptance

After making a quote, you have a chance to receive an offer of a tuition assignment. When receiving an offer from us via SMS or email, you can either accept by replying or reject by ignoring. Hesitant reply may lower the chance of getting the assignment. By you accepting the offer, binds you to a 4-week commitment, but does not bind us to this commitment. We and our customers still reserve the right to terminate the tuition assignment at any time.

Receiving assignment updates via SMS texting

With an active tutor account, you will receive SMS text on tuition assignments on daily basis. At the time when you submit the tutor registration form, you have agreed to receive SMS text from us any time between 730am to 1030pm daily. Each assignment is usually represented by one SMS text, within 160 characters. To cut down spam and the usage of characters, we usually don't sign off in the SMS as TopTutors. However you can easily identify us by the Reference Codes we input in our SMS text. It is in the form of REF CODE: T01 to REF CODE: T99.

Applying for tuition assignments via SMS texting

To apply for assignment, you are required to reply with the REF CODE and the respective details we asked for, in the text we sent. You have to reply to the exact mobile phone which sent you the updates. Please ensure the correct REF CODE is included in your text reply, with no spacing in between. We will only contact shortlisted applicants. Therefore, if you applied for an assignment by replying to the SMS text, but you receive no response to us, please understand that we have definitely seen your application. It's just that we can't be spending the resources on replying back to every unsuccessful applicants. If your application fails almost all the time, you may want to login to your tutor account to update your profile, or lower your expectation of tuition rates based on your qualifications and experience.

To unsubscribe from assignment updates, you can send a text reply with "UN" or "unsub". Please allow us up two working days for it to be in effect. Your account will be deactivated until you contact us again to re-activate.

Tutor Profile

You must submit and maintain an accurate tutor profile about yourself only. We are not and will not be responsible for all the contents that you post, upload, email, transfer or lose in your tutor profile. You shall not post contact details such as contact numbers, email address, website address, into your profile fields that will become viewable by the public or any site visitor; failure to comply may result in termination of your tutor account. A tutor profile includes necessary information about you such as name, NRIC number, and date of birth, gender, photograph, address, email, contact numbers, occupation, detailed qualifications and relevant experiences as a tuition teacher, area(s) and subject(s) preferences.

Qualifications, Certificates and Identification

The details of your qualifications submitted in your tutor profile must tally with genuine certificates in terms of school, level, title, subjects, grades, year, and so on. Toptutors reserve all rights to request or demand scanned copies of your original certificates and NRIC for verification purposes. You are expected to be proactive in getting these verifications done by sending copies of your original certificates and NRIC via WhatsApp to +65 9799-9901 or via Email; immediately after your tutor account is registered. You will have higher chance of being offered a tuition assignment if both verifications are done early. You accept that only Toptutors administrative personnel such as managers, administrators, coordinators will ask for copies of your original certificates and NRIC. TopTutors reserve the right to send copies of your certificates to prospective client. We will handle but shall not be liable for any breach of privacy policy by our own coordinators or customers that may result in your loss.

Commitment Requirements

Tutor’s refusal to abide to the following requirements shall result in tuition fees forfeited. Upon acceptance of an offer, you are required to commit to the tuition assignment for a minimum of 4 weeks tuition without changing any lesson timing. You are not allowed to make any changes to the tuition arrangement. If you wish to initiate slight changes to tuition arrangement, just consult and seek approval from TopTutors. You are not allowed to initiate any changes to the customer directly, bypassing our coordinator. Toptutors only accept official medical certificate or other official proofs of emergency cases as an excuse in lesson postponement. Although there is no requirement for tutor’s commitment longer than 4 weeks, tutor is expected to commit themselves further so as to ensure the student receive regular tuition. Therefore, postponement or cancellation of lessons or cancellation of assignment is strongly discouraged, especially when it is near the examination period. This will be strictly monitored by our Toptutors feedback system.

First Lesson

The first lesson is very important because it leaves a strong impression of you and the agency. Upon acceptance of the offer, you are not allowed to change the date and time of the first lesson, unless it is initiated by the customer, or you really have proper reasons. You are expected to call the customer just one or two days before the first lesson to re-confirm the tuition subject(s) and lesson time. You are not allowed to re-negotiate the agreed tuition rate. WeYou are required to bring your NRIC and original certificates to the first lesson and show to the clients without request. Failure to attend the first lesson will lead to the termination of your tutor account. This will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

Commission

We collect 50% of tuition fees for 4 full weeks of given lessons from the customer on your behalf as a commission from you. The commission must be collected directly from the customer by our manager at the end of 2nd week’s lessons. You may start collecting tuition fees directly from the customer from 4th week onwards. The amount of commission will not be affected by lesson postponement or cancellation due to any reason. However, it may increase or decrease proportionally if there is any change in tuition frequency or the tuition assignment is terminated, before the 4 full weeks of lessons are fulfilled. If such a situation occurs, Toptutors will collect from or pay you the prorated amount. Toptutors will not be liable for any unforeseen or uninformed changes. If the customer cancelled the assignment before 4 weeks of lessons are completed, and then suddenly contact you personally to continue the assignment, you are still liable for 50% commission for a total of 4 weeks of given lessons. When such situation occurs, you are obligated to let Toptutors know immediately. Any attempt to keep it from us is considered cheating and shall result in the termination of your tutor account. We reserve the rights to let the client know and replace a tutor without notice.

Cancellation of assignment and penalty

Please think twice before taking up an assignment. Think through whether you can commmit to the student to the end of the final exams. If you are unsure of yourself, please let another tutor have the chance. Apply for assignments only when you are sure of your commitment. Once the tuition assignment is confirmed, you are not allowed to cancel the assignment until 4 weeks of lessons are completed. If a termination is required by the tutor, the tutor has to compensate the full commission or 2 weeks worth of tuition fees. In an event such that the tutor tries to initiate a termination to the agent, after realising that he/she has to compensate, the tutor can choose to continue with the tuition assignment until 4 lessons are completed. However, as such initiation is made already, if the tutor reveals this intention to the client, or do not perform well, or late for the first lesson, or in any other way, result in a termination by the client, the tutor will be liable to compensate 4 full weeks worth (double) of tuition fees from the tutor. We treat our tuition asssignments seriously and are hopeful that with such measures in place, we can prevent irresponsible tutors. We will proceed with legal actions to ensure such measures are carried out strictly. After the 4 weeks commitment, you are free to cancel the assignment. Even though, our opinion is such that a responsible tutor shall commit to the tuition assignment until the end of the student’s final exam(s), or at least the mid-year exam(s) if applicable. Hence, your commitment towards the assignment will be monitored till the assignment is terminated or the student’s next major exam(s) is/are over, whichever is earlier. In this case, Toptutors have higher expectations for full time tutors.

Cheats

Common cheating cases such as an attempt to offer customer tuition discount so as they would fake an early assignment cancellation for the sake of lowering the commission levied on you, or include your contact information in your tutor profile that is viewable by the public. You will be liable in compensating our losses and your tutor account will be terminated if caught cheating.

Tutor Conduct & Customer’s Complaints

Penalties will be imposed on tutors who show poor conduct. Being unpunctual, having improper dressing, showing poor commitments such as postponing or cancelling lessons, or not concentrating on lesson are common signs of bad conducts. Any complaints or feedbacks received from customer will be recorded and you will be given a chance to comment, explain, or dispute. Vice versa, rewards will be given to tutors who show good conduct and receive good feedbacks. We reward tutors with priority to get better benefits in future with us e.g. more tuition assignments.

Do you agree to our terms and conditions for every acceptance of assignments?

Yes, I agree. Please sign me up.

You must check the box above to agree to our terms and condition before you can submit this registration form.

After submitting this form, an activation link will be sent to your email. You are required to login your email and click on that link in order to activate your tutor account. After that, you may login your tutor account to edit your profile. You are highly recommended to upload a profile picture. From statistics of the past assignments, a tutor with a profile picture stands a much greater chance of getting an assignment. You may want to email scanned copies of your certificates (PSLE, O Level, A Level, Diploma, Degree, ABRSM, etc.) to our email for verification purpose.
