Welcome back from your holidays!
The schooling season has started once again and everyone is scurrying to prepare for the year ahead.
Whether you’re a parent or a student, finding the right tuition classes can be a daunting task. I too have been at that impasse many times before.
In the past, we would have to search for tuition manually through friends or find their printed ads. Even then, there is still not enough information to discern if the classes are any good
Fortunately, times have changed! As there are sites to compare accommodation online, there are also sites like teachnlearn where you can source for online tutors from the comforts of your home.
Hence, here are 4 reasons why teachnlearn should be your main choice for online tutoring in 2019!
1. Finding the right home tutor or tuition center can be stressful. We make it easy!
There are over 500 registered tuition centres and 30,000 private tutors in Singapore alone. It can take you weeks to pick a tutor or a tuition centre! And what happens when you find out that the tutor isn’t the right fit? Not only would it be difficult to switch, you would have already wasted valuable time and money.
We make that process easier for you as you can select from our list of featured tutors that we taken hours finding and interviewing for suitability. All of our tutors go through a strict credentialing process where they are assessed in terms of teaching experience, teaching style, communication skills and subject knowledge. Your kids deserve the best and we reciprocate that in our efforts to deliver quality education.
Through us, you get the power to decide who your tutor should be from the comforts of your home. The whole signup and booking process will only take you 5 minutes! No deposits required. Simply learn as you go!
2. Students waste hours of precious time and money commuting.
Did you know that almost 50% of students spend an average of 4 hours commuting from home to tuition centres every week?
If you are a student, that is 16 hours a month that you waste sweating and running around. Instead, you could use that time to properly rest after school or take extra classes on our platform in case you need the extra help.
According to a 2015 Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) study, Singapore boasts one of the world’s best education system. However, there is no such thing as a perfect system as students in Singapore are also rated as the highest in terms of anxiety and stress levels. Hence, you need all the rest you can get and using us would definitely reduce the time you waste commuting.
3. Need immediate help for your homework? Yes, we offer that too.
It is 9pm at night and you have to submit your homework by tomorrow. Your next tuition lesson is a week away and your home tutor is on vacation. What now?
In 2014, an OECD survey had found that at fifteen years old, the average Singaporean spends approximately 9.4 hours on homework every week – nearly double that of the global average of five. This is not just due to the sheer abundance of homework that a Singaporean student has to bear. Half the time is spent trying to figure out how to solve the questions.
You can’t ask your parents and you certainly can’t ask your friends as they are stuck on the same question as you are. Online tutoring with Teachnlearn is a great last minute fix if you need immediate help with your homework. We provide that flexibility for you with tutors that are readily available. Now, you can finish your homework and still have time for your favourite tv show!
4. Re-playable lessons on-the-go to refresh your memory.
Did you know that learners can forget up to 70% of what they were taught within just 24 hours. Yikes!
Secondary and Junior College students spend 96 hours a year per subject at tuition centres. Those are hours and hours of valuable information lost by the time your exam comes around.
What will you do then? Go for extra classes? Then what was the point of all your previous classes?
Online tutoring with teachnlearn stores lessons you have learnt on your account for you to view at anytime. It is said that if you review what you have learnt a day, a week and a month after the lesson was conducted, you would be able to remember most of it. Replayable lessons makes it easier for you to organise your revision schedules and get you better prepared for your next big test.
