Tuition Centres in Singapore
Are you a student trying to score the grades of your dreams? Or a concerned parent fretting over your child struggling to keep up in class? Then, searching for the ideal tuition centre may be your next best step. While it has become the norm in Singapore, enrolling in tuition centres often gets berated for being too pressurising on students. But in actuality, tuition centres are beneficial in helping you excel in your subjects; they provide you with the right guidance and additional support to understand academic concepts that you may not have been able to grasp while you were in class.
To save you the headache of finding the right place, here is our list of the best tuition centres in Singapore for all your learning enrichment needs. The centres in this list range from providing help in the often challenging subjects like Math, Science and English, so you should be able to find the right place for you to level up your understanding in these subjects.
Before we get to the list, here are some fun and exciting activities you can plan together with your friends before the upcoming exam stress starts settling in:
1. Jφss Sticks Tuition Centre

The spiritual home (since 2007) of one of Singapore’s original Super Tutors, Miss Loi’s Temple aka Joss Sticks Tuition Centre (located a pebble’s throw from Novena MRT) offers the ways of the enlightened to those with the poorest of poor Math grades, so that they may be cleansed of their low confidence and careless mistakes, and attain their O & A Level Mathematical Salvation.
Despite its name, there is nothing religious about “Joss Sticks” and “Miss Loi’s Temple”. Joss Sticks actually refers to Miss Loi’s challenging set of exam paper questions. A Jφss Sticks Session is then, quite simply, an intensive Maths group tuition class conducted by the Venerable Miss Loi. Riding on a traditional Chinese saying which loosely translates to “Never burn joss sticks when all is well, but hug Buddha’s foot when in distress”, Miss Loi will be your guiding light towards good Math grades.
- Miss Loi is one of the original 5 “Super Tutors” – this term was mentioned for the first time on the front page of The Sunday Times on 15 June 2008. Miss Loi will celebrate her 30th year as a tutor in 2021.
- A customised learning programme that’s tailored to the needs of individual students is available.
- Doesn’t charge any registration or material fees upon enrolment.
Miss Loi is an amazing teacher and she really cares. She will continuously challenge and test your concepts until you fully understand them. My daughter went to her with scores of E8 & F9 initially and under Miss Loi’s tutelage, she scored A1s during her O levels. She now likes maths so much that she is considering to study maths at university in the future. We are so grateful to her!

The Learning Board specialises in English, Maths, and Science subjects from primary to secondary levels.

The Learning Board bases their teaching on a blend of creative materials and engaging techniques. This leads to a learning process where students can learn and improve at their own pace without the “grind” feeling. Students feel empowered as they gain mastery of the subject and become motivated to advance.
- Right Curriculum: The Learning Board develops MOE-compliant materials and SMART Sheets to help students quickly understand and remember new concepts. Each SMART Sheet presents one topic in a single sheet of A4 paper.
- Right Support: The Learning Board’s teachers are approachable. They help students feel comfortable asking questions and seeking guidance. Class size is maintained at a small number to ensure each student receives adequate attention from their teachers.
- Right Attitude: The Learning Board sees the way to develop the best in a student is through appreciation and encouragement. This motivation-based teaching method delivers a holistic approach that leaves a long-lasting impact on student improvement.
I was bad at English and did not know how to differentiate rules and concepts. The Learning Board helped me perform greater in my Paper 1 & 2 and improve my English score from B to A.

Mdm Devi started Jai Learning Hub in 2007 with a vision to help kids excel in Tamil while also learning to enjoy the language. Today, with a team of passionate, qualified and like-minded full-time tutors, Jai Learning Hub is positively impacting countless students. Their Motto is “WE PROMISE YOUR EXCELLENCE” and that drives them to only provide the best and more for their students.
- Unlike other tuition centres, Jai Learning Hub is not results-driven such that emphasis is only placed on spoon-feeding information and practicing aimlessly. The teachers effectively incorporate Tamil into the daily lives of their students through our innovative teaching methods and activities. This helps students actually develop an interest in the subject and excel in it.
- Have a personalised portfolio for every student. Teachers will identify each student’s strengths and weaknesses while constantly updating parents and students on improvements made/to be made after each session.
- Focus on innovative teaching methods rather than establishing an old-school classroom environment. Jai Learning Hub believes in cultivating a purpose in learning through enhancing students’ creativity and confidence in Tamil. Using this holistic approach, students are able to excel not only in Tamil but also in other academic and life goals.
My daughter is going to receive Edusave Good Progress Award. This would not have been possible without Ms Devi and other teachers’ support and encouragement for her Tamil too. Through their guidance and encouragement, my daughter has improved and shown more interest in Tamil. I could say more about the teachers, activities, etc.
But in short, I recommend Jai Learning Hub to all of my friendsSheila Gomez

The classes are small so it’s easier to make sure we all engage in class discussions, and the concepts taught are very clear-cut. The teacher ensures that we are all paying attention and the materials taught will be very useful during exams.

What I benefited most from Our Learning Loft is that the notes and worksheets are HIGHLY relevant to what I am tested in school. I joined the centre 3 months before my EOYs and it already helped me achieve and overall grade of A1 for Science! I was previously scoring C5 and hence this is a huge surprise for me!
During my regular lessons, I can see that my Science teacher was not just merely going through the motion of teaching. He exudes enthusiasm and passion in every lesson, and this has certainly helped me develop my own interest in the subject. He is very encouraging and often tells me that I am going to do well. He is undoubtedly the BEST Science teacher I have ever met. Well, I am so confident that I will continue to achieve good grades when I promote to Sec 2 in 2021.
I also like how the centre is extremely clean and bright. It is a very ideal environment to study in. The snacks and drinks in the centre can help students learn and study better as they serve as refreshments after being tired from studying.Travis
