For students who go abroad for higher education, the major point of concern –usually- is the cost of staying and expenses related to education. Some take loans, others get scholarships while many works to fund their education.
Singapore, being a country of high education standards, is one of the most preferred destinations for international students. Although there are many ways students can earn while studying in Singapore, private tutoring is the best option for them.
Why? Because of the following reasons:
- Believe it or not, taking private tuition classes for school students has evolved into an industry in Singapore. In 2005, it brought an annual turnover of 110.6 million Singaporean Dollars!
- According to one news daily, 7 out of every 10 school students go for private tutoring in Singapore.
- Although tuition centres are required to register themselves by the government, individuals who conduct tuition classes need not register themselves.
- For those who are unable to organise tuition classes individually, they can always join tutoring institutes and get hired as tutors.
