Things to learn about tuition rates:

(A) The three major factors that affect tuition rates are: (1) tutor capability based on records, (2) number of students taught, (3) tutor's academic background.

(B) For the factors above, the range of rates can be very wide for just one tutor category and one level.

(C) Tutor from one category with little experience and weak academic background usually starts from the lowest rate of that range.

(D) Majority of our client engage tutors usually at the middle of the rate range.

Therefore, we suggest that, for example,

If you have a budget of $40/hr for a P3 student, the best bet is that you engage a very experienced and capable full time tutor at $40/hr rather than squeezing your chances to find an Ex MOE teacher at $40/hr.

(E) Different subjects may be different rates too, due to the variations in demand and supply of tutors for that subject

(F) The other two important factors are (4) tuition location, (5) days/timings.

(G) Days/timings is usually the only factor that can be worked around for some students to gain improvements on factors (1), (2) and (3) without increasing the budget rate.

(H) If you can be more flexible with your (5) days/timings, you can increase the chances of getting a better tutor at the same budget rate.

(I) Based on statistics, more than 95% of the home tuition market are engaging the three major categories, namely, (1) undergrad tutors, (2) full time tutors, (3) ex/current MOE teachers. Our agents have realised that trend for years. Likely, it is due to the poor commitments from the other groups, such as poly students and NIE trainees, due to their school and CCA commitments.
