Q. Are you a tuition centre with your own student base, and rent out remaining unused hours to other tutors?
A. We are not a tuition centre and we do not have any student base. All our tutors run their own tuition businesses. We only rent our premises to private tutors and charge them on usage. The tutors have absolute say in their teaching subjects, fees, administrative procedures, etc.
Q. Are your premises certified fire-safe for use as a tuition centre?
A. We take the safety of our tutors and students seriously. Please be rest assured that all our centres are FSSD approved by SCDF.
Q. What are the facilities available in your centres and classrooms?
A. Each classroom comes with a whiteboard, tables and chairs for students and the tutor. All classrooms are air-conditioned. Each centre also has a waiting area and toilet access. Internet access, projectors, photocopy machines, computers and clipboards are not available.
Q. Are there any admin staff to assist in taking attendance, collection of fees, etc?
A. To keep our prices low, we do not provide any admin staff. Tutors will be responsible for their own financial and administrative matters. Tutors will have key access to the premises so they need not depend on admin staff to open the centres for them.
Q. Do you provide publicity or advertising for tutors?
A. To keep our prices low, we do not provide marketing services. Tutors will be responsible for sourcing their own students.
Q. Some of the centres offering rental provide publicity such as flyer distribution. Why is this not offered by My Tuition Class?
A. These centres use flyer distribution for their own outreach. Some of them may offer advertising space to you for free or at a nominal fee. Our experience tells us flyer distribution is not an effective publicity avenue. Hence we do not offer such services.
Q. What are the different ways I can rent a classroom from you?
A. We recommend new tutors to rent on hourly basis to keep your cost low. For established tutors with good student base, renting for unlimited usage is recommended.
Q. What is the minimum duration that I can rent?
A. Minimum rental timing is 2 hours per session. Minimum rental duration is 6 months for hourly usage and 12 months for unlimited usage. Rental duration of less than 6 months (for hourly usage) and 12 months (for unlimited usage) is not allowed.
Q. Why is there a minimum rental duration?
A. The agreement and minimum duration protects both parties. You will have a peace of mind that the classroom is available for that duration. Some tuition schools offer flexible rental duration. This means that they can start a new class at your timeslot and force you to leave or change your class timing.
Q. Is there any property agent fees that I have to pay?
A. Please be rest assured that you deal with us directly and there are no agent fees.
Q. Is there any deposit that I have to place?
A. Deposit of S$500 or one months' rent, whichever is higher, is payable upon signing of tenancy agreement. The deposit will be refunded if the terms of the tenancy agreement are fulfilled by the tutor.
Q. Are there any other fees that I need to pay, such as utilities?
A. Please be rest assured that we do not impose additional fees. The rental fees as stated in our website will be the only fees that we will collect from you at a monthly basis.
Q. Some of the centres offering classroom rental give much cheaper rates. Why are your rates more expensive?
A. Please be rest assured that our rental rates are competitive and reasonably priced. Our centres are accessible and situated in densely populated heartland areas. Some of our competitors are in CBD area where students have to travel long distances. Some of them are far away from MRT stations. Most of them are tuition schools who run their own classes and rent out their UNWANTED timeslots to you. That's why some of their rates are extremely low.
Q. Are the rental fees negotiable?
A. On a case by case basis, our rates are negotiable for tutors who are committed and looking to rent with us long term.
Q. Am I able to rent a classroom if I'm not a Singaporean?
A. Only Singaporeans are allowed to sign tenancy agreement and rent classroom with us. We do not allow PRs and foreigners.
Q. Am I able to rent a classroom for my partner or spouse, who will be the person teaching?
A. The person signing the agreement will have to be the main tutor teaching the classes. We do not allow partners or spouses to sign the agreement.
Q. Am I able to rent a classroom if it's not for academic purposes?
A. Our premises are for educational purposes only. We allow art and craft lessons that do not need washing, such as origami and manga drawing. Filming, music, yoga, massage, sports and other non-academic purposes are not allowed.
Q. Am I able to rent a classroom if it's only for a few days or less than 6 months?
A. We regret that once-off adhoc rental or rental duration of less than six months is not allowed.
Q. I am interested in viewing your centres. How do I go about doing that?
A. As we do not engage admin staff to manage our centres, we do not entertain walk-in or last minute viewings. Please drop us an email to arrange an appointment at least 3 days in advance.
