We get asked this question a lot: Why open a tuition centre in Bukit Timah when there are already so many of them? Why compete with some of the best tuition providers and star tutors who have open up shop there?
Despite the huge concentration of tuition centres in Bukit Timah, we still see good business at our Beauty World branch, especially from students from schools like Hwa Chong, Nanyang, NJC, and MGS.
In fact, Bukit Timah is home to so many great schools, also including Singapore Chinese Girls’ School, St Joseph’s Institution, and Anglo-Chinese School.
With so many great tuition options in Bukit Timah, there must be some good reasons that still attract students to our centre.
And what reasons might these be? Let’s find out!
We are experts in the IP curriculum
Take a look at the schools in Bukit Timah – many are schools with the Integrated Programme, which mean that students do not take the O levels and instead proceed to their affiliated JC to take the A levels or IB exams at the end of their 6th year.
Even though the IP system has been around for some time, you can’t walk into any tuition centre and expect their tutor to be equipped to teach IP Math tuition, for example. The IP curriculum differs significantly enough from the mainstream O level syllabus, for example, in terms of topics, teaching sequence, depth of content, difficulty of exam questions, and format of exam papers.
Here at Future Academy, our team comprises tutors with IP school teaching experience. Some have taught in these very schools themselves – including Hwa Chong Institution, Nanyang Girls’ High School, and more. As such, you can expect them to understand the rigour of the syllabus, and the best ways to teach it.
Our solid track record says it all
We don’t make these up. Our students’ exam papers, results, and their high praises for our tutors, show just what kind of tuition standards we uphold ourselves to. We have a solid track record that we are proud of, including bringing students from ‘just pass’ marks to ‘B’s and ‘A’s!
Besides the grades, many of our students and their parents end up recommending us to their siblings, relatives, and friends, which in our opinion, is one of the highest compliments we can get!
Just have a look for yourself – below are some of the impressive results by our students.
