Parents are always on the lookout for the best tutors to help their children. Naturally their first choice is for school teachers who offer tuition during their spare time. School teacher tuition is valued because school teachers are trained by National Institute of Education (NIE) in the pedagogy of teaching. The NIE training is a pre-requisite for all permanent teachers recruited by Ministry of Education.
School teachers are the first to know of any changes in syllabus for the subjects they are in charge of teaching. They also have access to the necessary teaching materials and teaching ideas to support their lessons. Therefore, engaging a school teacher to tutor the child, parents can rest assured that their child is guided according to the required school syllabus.
Besides being familiar with the school syllabus, school teachers are also taught how to assess their students using a common set of criteria. This means that they will know which areas to emphasize in their teaching to guide the students. This is especially important when students are sitting for major examinations like the PSLE and the O level examinations. School teachers are trained to mark these papers and they are given the marking criteria of how marks are awarded or penalized. This knowledge will be useful when they are tutoring students taking the national examinations.
For example, teachers who conduct oral examination for English are well versed with the requirement of the oral assessment. They are able to guide their tutees closely to meet these requirements.
Secondly, school teachers who offer tuition also offer a wealth of experience build upon the years of teaching and the many students that have passed through their tutoring. Therefore they are able to identify readily the areas where their tutees are having problem and adopt the right approach to address it.
School teacher tuition is a good backup for students who need extra dedicated help to cope with their school work which they do not have in school due to the large student to teacher ratio. Having a school teacher tutor will help to alleviate the stress and help the student cope better.
School teachers have very limited time available for taking up tuition assignments. Generally, their fees are higher than that charged by tutors who are not school teachers.
To maximize the benefit from school teacher tuition, parents still have to do their due diligence by making sure that the tutor they engaged has the necessary experience in the subject.
