Tuition centers that focus on providing the basic subjects and necessities are those we chose for this list.

Tuition services that have been around for years were chosen as experience is a key factor in this field.
1. AGrader Learning Centre

Address: 5 Ang Mo Kio Central 2, #03-02 Djitsun Mall, Singapore 569663

AGrade Learning Centre is one of the most thorough and detail-oriented tuition centers in Singapore.
Adhering to a higher quality of education in English, math, science, and writing, it aims to teach students from pre-primary to secondary levels.
The tutoring services are done weekly and students are allowed to partake in additional revision sessions that aim to improve learning beyond their scheduled lessons and sessions.
One thing we liked about the tuition center is its service named “Everloop Improvement System”, a tablet-based revision software that uses target-based practice and revision to help your child learn better.
We also liked the fact that this particular service has a high improvement rate. It has a roughly 83.4% improvement rate with 20,000 students impacted, which is a big feat for any tuition center on the island.
All in all, AGrader has a wide variety of services that covers both basic and advanced topics, which are enough for most students to learn from and apply to their future schools.
One thing we weren’t really fond of, though, is that the services of this business can be pricey in the long run, depending on the grade level of the student. Hence, it’s not the ideal center for those on a budget.
2. Jai Learning Hub
Services: Nursery, primary, secondary, junior college
Address: 291 Yishun Street 22, Singapore 760291
Contact Details: +65 9825 4743
Operating Hours: Monday-Friday 6:30 pm-9 pm Saturday-Sunday 10 am-6 pm

One of Singapore’s tuition centers with the most affordable rates is Jai Learning Hub. Many parents favor this tuition center because it offers affordable rates while still providing high-quality service.
Having received several awards and certificates, Jai has helped students excel in the Tamil language as well as other related topics in the field.
We found that the staff and tutors of Jai focus on providing practical and interactive lessons that enable students to learn more even in a short duration because of how the process involves them.
The lessons are generally simple but still provide enough context for children to understand the topics and Tamil as a whole. By using different methods, the tutors are able to keep students engaged and eager to learn more.
We liked that this specific tuition center has a focus on what it wants its students to learn rather than having a holistic approach just like other tuition centers.
This helps students focus on the basics and not have any distractions caused by other secondary subjects.
A small problem we did find, though, is the lack of attention some tutors have when it comes to teaching, especially in bigger classes.
This affects the quality of education the children get as well as how they process information that isn’t explained to them properly.
3. Aspire Hub
Services: Lower primary, upper primary, lower secondary, upper secondary, Chinese, workshops & holiday program
Address: 122 Bukit Merah Lane 1, Singapore 150122
Contact Details: +65 6377 7320

Aspire Hub has been in business for almost two decades.
Having helped thousands of Singaporeans with their educational needs, it strives to give students and parents a different, more personalized approach to teaching.
Aspire offers different subjects all from English, math, and science, to physics and geography.
Because the number of students allowed in the room is lower compared to others, it provides a better environment for students to study.
What we liked about this center is that it offers a free trial of its classes before any commitments.
This allows parents and students to first test out the facilities as well as the quality of education before any transaction is done.
Another thing we liked is that the center itself strives to give students a personalized service that helps them understand more and have a better connection with what they’re doing at the moment.
Lastly, we wanted to note that this tuition center has a wide variety of lessons to choose from, whether it be simple math and English lessons, to geography and biology.
One problem when going with this tuition center, though, is the costs that you’ll incur along the way. This may not be a problem for some, but the prices of Aspire are significantly higher compared to others.
4. Mind Stretcher
Services: English, math, science, creative writing, Chinese
Address: 510 Bishan Street 13, Singapore 570510
Contact Details: +65 6250 0050
Operating Hours: Tuesday-Friday 2 pm-9 pm Saturday-Sunday 9 am-6 pm
|Glassdoor reviews score||3.5/5|

|Method of teaching||4/5|
This specific tuition center has different departments, mainly primary and secondary classes, junior, and Chinese classes.
Throughout the years, it has built a strong and steady image in the field of tutoring and tuition centers.
The school’s main goal is to help students grow and achieve their dreams in the most meaningful way possible.
With several tools that allow them to teach students remotely as well, Mind Stretcher can answer any queries possible.
What we liked about this center is that it provides parents with a tool that allows them to track their child’s progress. The MS e-study buddy is what parents use to view their teaching materials and syllabus.
Another thing we liked is the high passing marks recorded by past batches of students. This is great because it means that the system of Mind Stretcher works and is able to perform well enough.
Lastly, we want to talk about the prices. The prices of the services are somewhat reasonable and can jump up and down depending on what service you’ll be availing of.
A problem with this kind of system, though, is that the costs themselves might not be accurate because they vary from one student to another.
5. Miracle Learning Centre

The Miracle Learning Center is an established name in the field of tuition centers in Singapore. This school boasts a unique experience that is also made possible by the faculty that make up the bulk of its staff.
It provides several programs from math, science, chemistry, etc. for a reasonable price and can teach children in a group setting.
What we liked about this tuition center is that it focuses on the quality of education children receive instead of the quantity it can reach.
What we’re saying is that the classes of Miracle Learning never exceed the limit of either 8 or 5 students.
Since the number of students is relatively low, it gives teachers a chance to focus on each individual’s problems and behavior as well.
Another thing we appreciated about this center is its rates being cheaper than other alternatives on the island. Simply put, the services Miracle gives, although cheaper, are still the same as others, if not better.
Lastly is the well-trained staff and teachers here. Since this is an established business that has been running for years, the staff also has a long track record when it comes to teaching and handling children of all ages.
One thing we’d comment on, though, is the fact that the services offered by this tuition center are limited.
Overall, this is still a great choice and should be on your list of possible tuition centers for your child.
