Expert Educators

Free for Epigami Tutors

We want our tutors to be the best that they can be, so we’re providing all workshops completely free of charge for Epigami registered tutors.

"The workshop was very informative, there were a lot of things I thought of at the back of my mind and you put it into a few words very well. I could relate to a lot of stuff. It was very good talk. The whole thing was just very informative and enjoyable to me. I have never actually attended a talk like that before, about tuition, how education affects us."

− Lynette

"Dr Leong gave me a look into what’s the future of the education of Singapore and the intent to change the model of teaching. The workshop also showed me how to improve on my teaching methods and what I can do differently."

What is an Epigami Tutor?

They are thorough

What happens if your student goes into an exam and finds himself staring at a question he wasn’t at all prepared for? Poor thing… So always make sure you’ve covered each topic in depth. Providing context as well will help anchor the knowledge in your students’ mind. Consider reviewing your knowledge on each of your subjects regularly, so you can answer every question your student has, and provide interesting insights.

They are prepared

It’s essential to prepare each lesson with some lead-time. You need to be sure you’re tackling the right challenges at the right time with the right tools. But being prepared isn’t just about organising a lesson, but adopting a mindset to help each young mind you reach out to develop itself. Each tuition assignment is going to be different, which means you have to be creative when putting together lessons to grab their attention.

They are committed

Before accepting a tuition assignment, make sure you’ll be able to commit over the full duration of the arrangement. So think about:

  • Travel distance
  • Future changes in your schedule
  • Difficulty (expected timeline & results, level & special needs of a child)

Try to get to your classes with 5 minutes to spare. Arriving late and drenched in sweat isn’t the best image to portray.

They are engaging

It’s easy to pick up a 10 year for a tuition assignment series and just go through it with a student. And this might even get them through a few tests. But they will be bored. You will be bored. And in the end they will forget everything you worked on. Private tutors have a fantastic advantage over their institutional peers whereas you can create a uniquely engaging experience, and take a truly personal approach. Understand each of your students’ personal requirements and build upon it.
