Private Tuition Is Needed for That Extra Push – DR Elmi Zulkarnain OSMAN

In today’s Singapore context, many parents feel that a private tutor is capable of providing that extra push when needed because tuition centres have too many classes and too little time for individual attention.

This is especially significant when it comes to a year for major examinations such as PSLE, N Level, O Level or A Level. Burdened by large classes, individual attention is extremely neglected in schools and even tuition centres. This is why private tuition or often referred to home tuition, personal tuition, one-to-one tuition, individual tuition and small-group tuition, is very popular in Singapore.

As different students have different needs, some require personalised attention and some can excel in a small group. Private tutors are able to attune to the learning habits and skills of students that the teaching process is customized for maximum understanding and retention. A private tutor can also provide an extra pair of hands to guide your child along in his/her studies, plan a study schedule when exams are approaching and even provide new insights on the study material.


At Elemantra Academy, we strongly believe a private tutor can often give students a much-needed confidence boost. Sometimes all it takes to instil a little confidence in a student is to have a tutor identify what they are doing correctly and suggest how they may improve in the areas they are falling short in strengths whilst identifying weaknesses. And due to the ‘one to one’ basis of private tuition, tutors can quickly identify the areas a student may need to improve which is something that students may not be able to identify on their own.

These extra focus and tailored attention of specialised one-to-one private tutoring can be the major aspect that will make a difference to effective learning and good examination results.
