The Art Of Powerful Answers - Exam Smart Singapore

Every year since 2009, parents and students have trusted Exam Smart because we have established a reputation for being dependable, honest and effective. And, we have a 100% success rate.

Our 53,000 qualified home tuition tutors from our tuition agency (MOE teachers, experienced home tutors with PhD/Master's/Bachelor's/undergraduates from good universities) have helped our students, and then their siblings and friends to achieve higher grades.

We all have that one subject that we don’t do well at. 

If you are not satisfied with your grades, it might mean that your study methods are not working well for that subject.

After you received the results of a school assessment, did you watch how some of your classmates were high-fiving each other because they scored the very high marks that you wanted?

Did you ever wish that they could teach you the study skills that they have mastered, so that you too can score excellent grades like them?

Students who are seeking additional learning support are more than likely doing it as a result of frustration and desperation. 

They probably have tried seeking assistance from other places before they manage to find a home tutor whom they are comfortable with. 

Many students struggle with the concept of good study habits. 

It is vital that your home tuition teacher is able to coach and guide good behaviours for your child to adopt, when it comes to approaching school work, homework and exams. 

Exam Smart has Singapore’s most effective home tuition teachers.

You will be much better prepared to score substantially higher grades in your exams.

Exam Smart knows what works, which experienced tutors can help your grades improve, and why.

Your experienced home tuition teacher will tailor the lessons according to your specific learning and grades objectives.

This will help you to get organised and to understand the importance of engaging in academic work with a positive attitude and study skills.

Without professional home tuition, you may not know which learning method to use, and which are the most effective study strategies. 

Our resourceful home tuition coordinators how to find committed tutors who can identify the causes why you obtained lower than expected grades.

Your qualified home tuition teacher from Exam Smart will identify your weak areas, help you develop your personalized set of notes that is closely tailored to your own learning style, show you how to avoid careless mistakes, and give you undivided attention. 

Whether you are already scoring A’s and want to achieve even stronger A’s, or have already studied hard and still have difficulty passing – we have professional home tuition teachers for you.

Hire effective private tutors from Singapore's most popular tuition agency

Please let us know if you are the parent/guardian of the student or if you are a student looking for a tutor
eg: Primary 5 English
Eg 2 hours each session, twice a week, Mondays anytime from 4pm to 7pm etc
The majority of tutors in Singapore currently prefer to conduct online lessons. Thus, if you are OK with lessons being held online, it is likely that there will be more experienced tutors who apply for your assignment.
If you prefer online lessons, please enter "nil" or "online lessons" thank you


You can request for a tutor by submitting our online Request Form.

Upon receiving your request, we will Whatsapp you to discuss your child’s academic needs. We will spend the next few hours shortlisting several suitable tutors within our database and network for your consideration.

Our working hours are from 9am to 9pm, seven days a week.

Tuition usually commences within one week after you have selected a tutor.


The paid trial lessons can be 1.5 hours or 2 hours per session.


You just need to pay for the tuition session(s) that have been conducted. There will not be any extra charges for the change.


You can request to see the hardcopies of certificates of your tutor to be presented to you during the first lesson.

The client acknowledges that it is his/her responsibility to verify the suitability, credentials and qualifications of any tutor with whom he/she engages.


Exam Smart is Singapore’s leading private tuition agency and our matching service is free for students/parents requesting for tutors. This is because our agency commission is charged to the tutor, not to you.

The client will pay to Exam Smart half of the fees payable in the first 4 calendar weeks. This amount is the commission to Exam Smart for matching the tutor to the client, and will be borne by the tutor.

Thereafter, the client will pay the tuition fees directly to the tutor.

If lessons are postponed during the first two weeks, the commission payable to Exam Smart will be based on the tuition session conducted the subsequent week(s).

The tutor shall collect all fees due to the tutor from the parent after the two weeks. Exam Smart will not assist in any recovery of fees.


The client is required to pay tuition fees only for the number of hours of lessons given by the tutor.

If you decide to stop the tuition after the first lesson, you are required to pay for only that lesson.

Please transfer the fee for that lesson to Exam Smart and we will transfer the tutor’s fee to him/her.

Tutors are not authorized at any time to collect the payment on Exam Smart’s behalf.

Tuition fees are to be paid every 4 weeks to the tutor, unless otherwise agreed between the client and the tutor.


We will provide our bank account information for you to make payment via internet banking or ATM transfer directly to Exam Smart’s bank account.

If the client fails to pay us, Exam Smart reserves the right to terminate the Assignment. This is in fairness to the tutor, who might need to give the available slot to another client if this Assignment does not materialize.

Once the payment is received, it will be acknowledged in the form of a receipt, issued to the payer (Parent/Requestor/Guardian) via Whatsapp, sms, email or other electronic communications medium. We will also provide details of the Tuition Assignment that can include: tutor’s name, hourly fee, date of commencement of tuition, subject(s), level, duration of each lesson and frequency, etc.


Once the client accepts the tutor’s candidacy, the client will not be able to change the schedule of the First Lesson.

Clients are allowed to make changes in the schedule after the First Lesson is over. However, Exam Smart hopes that this is not necessary as the tutor has already reserved that slot of time for you.

If you want to make changes in the schedule, please consult with your tutor to ask if he/she is able to change the schedule or not.

The tutor is to bring his/her identity document, academic transcripts/certificates and relevant documents for the First Lesson for verification purposes.

If the tutor is unable to conduct the First Lesson of a tuition assignment, the tutor must call Exam Smart at least 3 business days before the actual lesson. If the tutor fails to notify Exam Smart of his/her cancellation/postponement, an administrative charge of S$30 will be imposed on him/her.

If the tutor fails to contact Exam Smart with a valid reason to inform us about the tutor’s absence from the lesson, the tutor’s profile at Exam Smart may be blacklisted. This will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.


Tutors will conduct lessons at the student’s residence unless otherwise specified and agreed upon by both the client and the tutor.

If the client has a request for the tuition to be conducted at another location (eg a friend’s home), Exam Smart will ask if the tutor is able to accommodate the request.

Exam Smart and the tutor will not be responsible if the given location is occupied or not available for use for the lessons and the officially scheduled timings will still be counted as a paid lesson.


There is no obligation or contract to complete a fixed number of lessons, except for the First Lesson.

If at any time the client is not satisfied with the tutor, the client may request a replacement or termination. However, the client is responsible for paying the fee for the number of lessons given prior to termination.

Exam Smart will discuss separately with the client and the tutor regarding future tuition arrangements, and Exam Smart will change the tutor for the client. There will not be any extra charges for the change and the client needs to pay just for the tuition session(s) that have been conducted.

If the client cancels a tutoring assignment before the tutor completes the agreed number of lessons for the first 4 calendar weeks, Exam Smart assumes full claim to 50% of the tuition fees for the total number of lessons delivered in the month. For example, if the client had requested for 8 lessons per month, but the assignment was cancelled after the 5th session, Exam Smart will be paid pro-rated commission for the 5 lessons conducted.

Exam Smart will not be liable for any payment charges or issues arising from the cancellation of tuition assignments by the client.

If the client terminates the Assignment because the tutor is often late, skips lessons without valid explanations etc, the tutor will bear Exam Smart’s full commission fee.

If the tutor cancels the Assignment after confirming acceptance (that is, the client’s contact information and address have been given to the tutor), the tutor will need to compensate the commission which amounts to 50% of the fees payable (as stated in the confirmation Whatsapp, sms, email or other forms of electronic communications messages) for the first 4 weeks.

If the tutor wishes to cancel a Tuition Assignment before the end of the first 4 calendar weeks, the tutor is to inform both Exam Smart as well as the client at least 3 days before the next lesson date. Exam Smart will recover our legal share of the one-time commission of 50% of the fee for the first 4 calendar weeks from the tutor. Tutors are encouraged to have a long-term commitment as the clients have vested their trust in them.


The tutor will receive full or pro-rated payment for the number of lessons rendered, provided the tutor has complied with the Terms of this Agreement.

The client has the right to terminate the tuition if the tutor is unable to produce the documents certifying his/her credentials. In such cases, the tutor has to pay Exam Smart the amount of money equivalent to the tuition fee for the day, as commission.


Exam Smart is Singapore’s leading private tuition agency in Singapore. While we try to provide clients and tutors with the closest tutor match possible, we cannot guarantee a satisfying match. We hold no responsibility or liability for problems, unhappiness, or disputes that are a result of the tutor or client.

Exam Smart will not act as an arbitrator for any disagreements that arise between tutor and client.

However, Exam Smart may try to mediate whenever possible and reserves all rights to blacklist any party who is at fault. Exam Smart also reserves the right to terminate or deny services to any client or tutor (actual or potential) at any time.

Exam Smart is voted as Singapore's most trusted home tuition agency

Professional home tuition teachers should be called upon when a student finds that the attention and support of a classroom teacher no longer meets their individual learning needs. This can be a result of many factors including:

  • Time constraints
  • Curriculum progression
  • Individual learning challenges
  • Absence
  • Miscommunication between teacher and student 
  • Difficulty in defining the exam question and inability to tackle novel, non-routine problems 

In school, you are not able to choose who you want, to be your teacher.
