How Does It Work

Once you register, your details will be included in STS database. We will find your students according to your requirements. In most cases the tuition is on a one to one basis at the student's house. It will be for twice a week at 1.5 hours each session, covering 1, 2 or 3 subjects at a time. Sometimes tuition is held in a group and sometimes it can be arranged at the tutor's house. Check out the tuition rates here.

You do not have to undertake all assignments that are sent to you. When we send you information of a particular case, you must call the student or parents to talk and decide whether you would like to take up this tuition.

As a tutor, you are the priority in our organization. As your agent we will do our best to provide students at competitive rates and a conducive environment.
