Singapore Tuition Centres Sprouting Fast

In Singapore tuition is a big thing, hence the saying that Singapore is a tuition country.

By just looking at the sheer number and rate of tuition centres mushrooming in the country, you know how much parents are investing into their children’s academic performance.

Schooling children here not only have to cope with the heavy daily school assignments but also attend numerous tuition classes during the weekends, regardless of how well they are actually performing in their subjects at school. What it seems to have been developed is a social norm that parents have strongly conformed to. And the fear that their children might lose out if they are not given as much coaching outside of school hours as other children has somewhat driven them to accept the need to ferry and rush their kids from one tuition centre to another, week after week. Some children even receive tuition for all the school subjects. And because many parents have no qualms about spending on more and better classes for their children (up to $100 per group lesson), tuition centres are sprouting out fast, one by one, all eagerly vying for a part of the tuition services pie.

These educational centers occupied many floors of large shopping malls in Singapore. Mothers drop off their kids here and trod off to the shops or finish up some errands.
