Different types of tutors

Part-time and undergraduate tutors

Part-time tutors are comprised of academically gifted students who have done exceedingly well for exams and are now in University of waiting for University to start. This group of tutors offers the most budget friendly rates and flexible timetables. Their smaller age gap to students also makes them more relatable and approachable. Just because they are young, does not mean that they are any less capable than their full time counterparts. Many part time tutors under Distinction tutors have a history of helping their students produce stunning improvements and excellent results.

Full-time tutors

Full time tutors are those that have chosen to teach tuition as a full-time job. Full-time tutors have many years of experience under their belt and are able to accommodate a much wider range of timings, such as weekday mornings and afternoons. Most are also able to provide comprehensive notes that have been filtered out from years of experience. They are able to spot mistakes quickly and teach effectively. This group of tutors is a good choice for parents who want a tried and tested option.

Current / Ex-MOE tutors

Current/ex MOE teachers have a hefty price tag, but their expertise makes this price tag well worth it. They know the syllabus extremely well because they have been teaching classes and setting the papers in their schools. Current/ex MOE teachers are the most qualified group of tutors Distinction tutors offers. However, under current MOE rules, MOE teachers can only give 6 hours of private tuition a week. Due to the high demand for current MOE teachers and the limited time they have to teach, it will take significantly longer to find a MOE teacher as a tutor for students.
