From a tutor’s point of view, my favourite tuition agency website is Startutor.sg (http://startutor.sg/)
Firstly, the website has a great design, the best I have ever seen. They even have dedicated queries regarding their design. (http://startutor.sg/design)
Secondly, they do check and verify all the tutor’s certificates. Hence, parents can be assured that the tutors do have the relevant certificates that they claim to have.
Thirdly, they do have SMS notifications for tutors, which is good since tutors may not check the website everyday.
I am listed as a tutor on Startutor.sg, however nowadays most of the students contact me through my website.
Overall, Startutor.sg is an excellent tuition agency, with good website interface, and stringent certification checking on tutors.
For other subjects besides Mathematics, request for a tutor at Startutor! Startutor is Singapore’s most popular online agency, providing tutors to your home. There are no extra costs for making a request. (Website: http://startutor.sg/request,wwcsmt)

Start Maths revision early for the best results!
Maths is a subject that requires students to start revision / practice early!
It needs consistent practice and last minute studying is not going to work well!
Many students have the wrong concept that they can start practising questions one or two months before the O Levels. The problem is, without constant practice, the questions from the Ten Year Series would be too difficult for students to even begin attempting the questions! This is especially true for Additional Mathematics. This leads to panic and is not the desired study strategy. This is the main reason why it is possible to score very low (less than 20 marks out of 100) in Maths, if the student does not have solid foundation or has lack of practice. To avoid this scenario, start practicing and revising Maths now! Many students already start studying / learning in advance during the December holidays. January is still a good time to start! As the Chinese proverb states: “一年之计在于春一日之计在于晨”, the best time to begin planning for a task is in Spring.
Also, the current O Level Maths is not like the O Level of the past! Due to higher education standards nowadays, and competition from foreigners (especially China students whose pet subjects are Maths and Chinese), the bell curve for E Maths has shifted very very high. Rumours have it that 90 marks is necessary for a guaranteed A1 in E Maths.
On the bright side, it is very possible to improve in Maths with practice. Look at the Mathematics questions in O Levels, one long question is around 10 marks. Answering that one question correctly will already boost your score by 10 marks. (2 grades). Answering two long questions correctly will boost score by a whopping 20 marks!
Hesitate no longer! Start revising for your Maths now!
