One-to-One tuition or small group tuition (Up to 4 students) are effective if:
- Students cannot understand what their lecturer is teaching in school; OR
- Students are not able to do majority of the tutorial questions; OR
- Students are not able to do intermediate level questions; OR
- Students score D or below in math tests or exams; OR
- Students are too shy to ask questions in a class
Going to tuition class (more than 4 students) is acceptable if:
- Students are able to understand what their lecturer is teaching in school and able to do majority of the tutorial questions; AND
- Students score C or above in math tests or exams; AND
- Students are not shy to ask questions in a group; AND
- The topics conducted in tuition class is in same order as their school or students are able to learn two different topics at the same time (one at school and another at tuition)
Different JCs teach the topics in different order. So students need to choose a tuition class wisely. Else, students might have to learn one topic during tuition and a different topic in school simultaneously. If students are interested in group tuition, join a tuition class that teaches the topics in the same order as their school. Or form a group with classmates from the same school and then find a good tutor. Attend tuition classes conducted by full-time graduate tutors or ex-teachers.
Students who score B and above, who need to clarify doubts only for certain topics or challenging questions, can go for ad-hoc tuition.
