This flat is a tuition centre

ABOUT 30 children were present in the classroom, heads bent over books while listening intently to their tutor as she barked out her instructions.

A bespectacled woman, who appeared to be in her 40s, stood at the front of the class, teaching mathematics to the children.

There were about 10 tables in the classroom and the students were seated on stools - furiously writing down the answers to the woman's questions

But this was no ordinary tuition centre. It's in an eighth-storey HDB flat in Yishun.

The whole living room in the four-room unit had been transformed into a classroom.

There were no sofas or armchairs in the living room.

Instead, the space was filled with tables laid out in neat rows.

A few children were even seated in the kitchen, trying their best to follow the lesson.


There was a whiteboard on the living room wall and high on another wall was a sign which said: "Ming Yuan Learning Centre".

The owner of the flat could be committing an offence by transforming it into a tuition centre.

Under HDB's Home Based Small Scale Business Scheme, home owners are permitted to conduct private tuition in their flats, but they can teach not more than three students at a time.

The flats cannot be used as tuition centres as they are meant for residential use.

HDB said yesterday that this is because a large number of students may cause noise or other form of nuisance to the neighbours when they move in and out of the flat while attending classes.

It added that cases of tuition centres operating from flats have been rare in the past three years.

It said that in 2008, there was an isolated case in Bishan where the flat owner converted the master bedroom into a "classroom" to conduct tuition classes of between eight and 10 students per class.

HDB warned the flat owner and he relocated his tuition centre to commercial premises.

As for the Yishun flat, HDB said it has made some discreet checks but it needs to conduct a more thorough investigation as its officers were unable to gain access to the unit.

HDB said that if the lessee is indeed using the flat as a tuition centre for more than three students at any one time, it will not hesitate to take enforcement action.

Posing as a parent interested in enrolling a child with the centre, this reporter checked out the flat last week.

Near the front door, facing the corridor, was a colourful display about the size of a dining table.


Pasted on it were copies of certificates and testimonials, believed to be from the tutor's students.

The tutor, who is also the flat owner, said she teaches English, Mathematics and Science to primary school students.

"I teach all three subjects at $64 per student a month, about two hours per lesson, twice a week," she said.

"I don't teach just one subject - it's $64 for all three subjects."

While I was there, the woman spoke sternly to the students and even hollered at some of them for not listening to her instructions.

She had asked the students, who will be in Primary Four next year, to list the multiples of certain numbers as part of their lesson.

After about 30 minutes, she said it was time for me to leave. When asked about her qualifications, she snapped back: "I have a diploma in teaching."

As for whether she had received her training at the National Institute of Education, she replied that she is not a teacher

Asked where she had obtained her diploma, she said curtly: "If you want to try, you can try lor... If you don't trust me, then you don't come lor... It is as simple as that."

At the void deck of the block, one of her students, when approached, claimed that she canes students who misbehave.

The parent of another child was surprised when told of this, but said the learning centre offers one of the cheapest packages around and that it was "value for money".

Yesterday, TNP called the tutor and asked if she is aware that she could be in breach of HDB rules.

She said she is confident she is not. She said she is a single parent and has been conducting tuition for 19 years as she needs the money to support her son who has a mental problem.

The woman added: "My neighbours have never complained about my classes. In fact, they are very friendly with me."

A check with two tuition centres showed that her fees are much lower.

Mavis Tutorial Centre, which has 16 branches islandwide, charges up to $90 per subject per month for primary school students.

Its human resource manager, Ms Kelly Sim, said each weekly lesson lasts 90 minutes.

She added that the centre is transparent about the qualifications of its tutors.

Mr Max Tan, a tutor at True Learning Centre, said it charges up to $125 per subject per month for two-hour weekly classes.

Mr Tan, who used to head the Mathematics Department at Hwa Chong Institution, said: "Our tutors are all extremely qualified and their credentials are clearly stated on our website."

Need to register

Tuition centres are required to register with the Ministry of Education (MOE) as they operate as schools.

Tuition agencies do not have to be registered with the MOE, but have to be registered with the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority.

They supply and deploy tutors to students.

Between January and July this year, the Consumers Association of Singapore (Case) received 11 complaints against tuition centres and private tutors, mypaper reported on July 7.

Nineteen such complaints were filed with Case last year, four more than in 2009

O-level model essays on death & sex?!

Teachers too harsh or students too soft?

'Kiasu' parents appeal to top schools


Alex Tan topped last year’s PSLE with four A stars, a distinction in Higher Chinese and a stellar score of 282. An active er hu player in his school’s Chinese orchestra, he managed this academic feat despite intensive rehearsals for the Singapore Youth Festival 2010 Central Judging competition, and less than two hours of study every day. He tells Young Parents how he did it with just seven study habits.

Summarise and consolidate what you have learnt by creating notes. Use multicoloured pens or highlighters to bring out the important points you have to know. Colour coding doesn’t just help to organise information, it makes dull content interesting, too. Making notes is Alex’s favourite study strategy. “I think the best part of studying is creating my own notes. It’s quite fun. I write my notes two months before PSLE and then use them for revision,” Alex remarks.

Although his parents encouraged him to use assessment books sometimes, the top student isn’t a fan of them. “Assessments don’t cover a lot of things that are taught in school. They are good for learning the basic things but we should do more than that for revision,” he says. According to him, exams in schools are often tougher than the work in assessment books. That’s why pupils should focus on the practice papers teachers hand out and the past year papers from other schools.

Science is Alex’s Achilles heel. He says: “Science is my weakest subject. When I look at the textbook, I feel sian (bored).” But this didn’t hinder him from getting an A star for the subject. He marks important pages in his Science texts and files with post-it notes. The reason: Singling out the pages that really matter makes a thick text or file less overwhelming. It doesn’t feel like there is an endless amount of material to cover, so revision time feels shorter, too.

Top PSLE pupil from Rulang Primary; 97.4% passes

Some 97 per cent of students who sat for their Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) this year have done well to move on to secondary schools.

He regrets wasting his second chance

HE WAS once demoted, but his school took a chance on him and promoted him to Primary 6 earlier this year.

Unfortunately, he didn't live up to his school's faith in him. He played truant and even broke the law.

As a result, he received an aggregate score of just 79 for his Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) last week.

Daniel (not his real name), 13, scored a Grade 4 in Foundation Malay, and an "ungraded" for Foundation English, Foundation Mathematics and Foundation Science.

We are not naming the boy to protect his identity.

He skipped school about once a week, spending his time playing in the void deck.

He also ran away from home in May and was caught stealing a bicycle at a void deck that same month.

He was supposed to be in court in September, but he ran away from home again and missed the appointment.

During the two weeks he was away from home, he also skipped school.

When the police found Daniel again, he was kept in remand at the Singapore Boys' Home for about a month.

It was during his stay there that he took his PSLE written exams.

Said Daniel: "They were very hard. There were many questions I didn't know, and I left them blank.

'No mood to study'
"At the Boys' Home, I wasn't in the mood to study."

In October, he pleaded guilty to theft and was placed on probation for 21 months.

He was also sent to live in a children's home for part of the probation period.

He said he regretted stealing the bicycle.

"It created so much trouble for me," said Daniel.

Referring to his results, he said: "I'm not stupid. I could have done better.

"If I didn't take the bicycle, I would not be in a children's home now."

While Daniel's parents are not active in his upbringing, his aunt, who used to take care of him, wasdevastated to learn that he had been sent to the Boys' Home.

She said: "I tried to teach him, but he didn't listen and ran away. I was so worried for him.

"I hope he has learnt his lesson."

With Daniel's grades, he qualifies to attend NorthLight School, a vocational school meant for students who have attempted the PSLE and are unable to make it to secondary school.

There, he can graduate with a certificate in electrical servicing, mechanical servicing, food and preparation, or retail operations.

Daniel told TNP his story hoping that other students will not follow in his footsteps.

He said: "I hope to do better in the future."

Queries to Daniel's school went unanswered.

But the home he is in is confident of rehabilitating him. Its deputy superintendent told TNP that Daniel will be tutored for his studies and the home will help him to turn over a new leaf.

The New Paper | Thu Dec 1 2011

He scores against all odds

HE WAS at home when the police found drugs under the mattress that he shared with his drug distributor dad and drug addict mum.

Muhammad Zulkarnaen Abdul Razak, who was in Primary 4 then, broke down in tears.

Both his parents are now in jail for drug-related offences.

You would expect a small boy with such giant odds stacked against him to do badly in school.

And for a time, he did.

While staying with his step-brother, whose care he was placed in, Zulkarnaen spent his days sleeping and playing.

But two things eventually jolted him to his senses - his poor grades in his Primary 4 exams and a visit to his mother in jail.

Said Zulkarnaen, now 12: "When I visited my mother in prison, she asked me to study hard so that I would be able to take care of her when she's released.

"I didn't want to let her down since she cared so much for me in the past."

And he did not.

Zulkarnaen, who is from Northland Primary School in Yishun, pulled through his Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) with an aggregate score of 159.

He scored a Grade 1 in Foundation Malay, Foundation Mathematics and Foundation Science, and a Grade 2 in Foundation English.

With his results, Zulkarnaen could choose to study either in the Normal (Academic) or the Normal (Technical) stream.

He has applied to the Normal Technical stream at Naval Base Secondary School.

His form teacher, Mr Ganesan Arumugan, 37, praised his achievement.

Said Mr Ganesan: "Zulkarnaen is very intelligent. He was just not focused."

Zulkarnaen's step-brother, Mr Abdul Rashid Rahim, 25, told The New Paper that their mother is in jail for five years, while his father is imprisoned for 10 years.

Their parents were arrested below the block of the family's five-room flat in Yishun in 2009, he said.

Recalled Zulkarnaen: "I was upstairs when the police came...I shared a bed with my parents, and they found drugs hidden under the mattress.

"I was so shocked, I ran to another room to cry.

"Before my mother was led away, she told me: 'Don't worry. I'll come back one day. Don't forget about me.'"

After his parents' arrest, Zulkarnaen was placed in Mr Abdul Rashid's care. The two share the same mother.

The former food stall helper, who is now unemployed, is married to a housewife and has two sons, aged three and one.

He said: "I used to work all day and found it hard to even spend time with my own children."

He said that he quit his job a few months back as it was too stressful.

"I'm not rich and can't afford tuition. I'm also not educated and can't help Zulkarnaen with his homework," added Mr Abdul Rashid.

So the boy was left largely to himself.

And for a while, he spent his free time sleeping and playing at home.

The turning point came only at the end of 2009, when he did poorly in his Primary 4 end-of-year exams and was placed in the Foundation stream.

Zulkarnaen said: "I woke up. I realised that my parents weren't around to take care of me any more.

"There was nobody to spoil me and I really had to help myself. It was then that I started doing my own homework properly

Wanted to please them

Zulkarnaen said he missed his parents, and after his visit to his mother in jail, he wanted to please them by doing better at school.

He also credits his turnaround to his form teacher.

Said Zulkarnaen: "Mr Ganesan would encourage me by buying me a McDonald's meal every time I achieved a perfect score for spelling.

"He also bought me pencils, pens, correction tape and a protractor so that I could use them in my studies."

And Zulkarnaen's hard work paid off.

He passed most of his subjects in Primary 5, and all of them in Primary 6.

He also won an award in June for topping the level in Foundation Malay.

He has not yet been able to visit his parents to tell them his results, but he said: "I'm very excited to let them know."

Mr Zaqy Mohamed, MP for Chua Chu Kang GRC, told TNP: "This is a young person who has overcome the odds. His story shows that we can't give up as a community. The opportunity is always there if we work hard for it.

"I'd be happy to garner support to ensure that he has the peace of mind to study despite his parent's absence."

Benson Ang | The New Paper | Sun Dec 4 2011

Mr Ganesan, who is also the school's head of pupil development, said he is proud of Zulkarnaen for picking himself up.

"I believe he can do even better in the future," he said.

National top Malay student in 2011 PSLE results

St Hilda Primary student, Natalia Nadila Muhd Nasir emerged as national top Malay student in 2011 PSLE results share her joy with her sister, Natasha Nabila who was top national student of 2007's PSLE.

Medical ambition

Another top student who shares Arif's aspiration to be a doctor is top Chinese student, Hannah Tan, 12.

The Raffles Girls' Primary pupil scored 281 in the PSLE, but was surprised as she did not do well in the preliminary exams.

She admitted to not always being the best pupil in class academically, as her classmates "are all very good in their studies", but credits her parents' support and encouragement for her excellent results.

Besides coaching her, they also engaged tutors for her in all four subjects - English, Chinese, Math and Science. Hannah said the pressure to do well and keep up with her classmates made her willing to spend hours at tuition classes.

Her teachers as well, were always ready to help, says Hannah, and gave them many extra lessons. And it seems Hannah's hard work has paid off.

On her ambition, Hannah says: "I hope to be a doctor, as I always hope to help people who are sick and in need and those who are poor and cannot afford to see a doctor."

The only daughter of an A*Star research scientist and Nanyang Polytechnic lecturer, Hannah has gained admission to Raffles Girls' Secondary School next year.

Lee Kuan Yew is this top scorer's inspiration

Muzammil Arif Din, 12, emerged the nation's second top-scoring pupil today after the release of the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) results at noon.

The Anglo-Chinese School (Primary) pupil also topped the school, with his PSLE score of 282, just one point behind Singapore's top scorer, Yasmin Yasmin Ziqin Bte Mohamed Yousoof from Rulang Primary.

The aspiring doctor credits his teachers and parents for his stellar results, but is a good example that burning the midnight oil is not always needed to produce good results.

In fact, Arif, as he prefers to be called, says having sufficient rest is "most important", for doing well in exams. He kept to his usual bed-time at 9pm every night, and even during the exam period, did not cut out play-time with his siblings, aged 8 and 5.

"I would like to become a politician in the future", said Arif, who has also read all of the former prime minister's memoirs.

Asked why he looks up to Mr Lee, Arif says it's because he does things "for the good of the nation, and not just because it is popular."

Arif will be entering Raffles Institution next year, but for now he is looking forward to a family trip to the US this Saturday, where his parents are taking him to Disneyland as a reward.

Anglo-Chinese School (Primary) produced two top students this year. Bjorn Kaijun Betzler, 12, is this year's top Eurasian pupil.

His father is a lawyer and his mother, a part-time accountant.

Besides wanting to heal the sick, the gifted education pupil also has a passion for politics and calls Mr Lee Kuan Yew his inspiration

Is passing an examination enough?

IT WAS an interesting debate. The theme was what the ideal pass percentage for an examination needed to be? Should it be 40 per cent, 35 per cent or 33 per cent? I was waiting calmly for the varied responses. Finally I commented: "I just wonder whether I should accept 60 per cent of incompetence, 65 per cent or 67 per cent? I just don't know what are we trying to acknowledge?"

It is important to understand that the objective of a learning process is to acquire the relevant knowledge, competence and skills; not merely pass an examination on a specified rating scale.

Schools should focus on developing the necessary learning skills and facilitate the joyful pursuit of learning, rather than focusing on the requirements of the year-end examination.

Albert Einstein observed: "Education is what remains when one has forgotten what one has learned in the school." The process of learning is more important than the mere content learnt.

How do we collect information, how do we sift information, how do we enable information to become knowledge, how do we process knowledge for useful applications, how much of information or knowledge we store, how do we use knowledge as a life skill or a vocational skill? These are more important than merely remembering and recalling information and reproducing it at a given point of time.

For example, when one studies a travelogue it offers a lot of opportunities for understanding the socio-cultural environment of a place, its geographical assets, its economic prerogatives and the human relations. History helps us to evaluate events objectively in the relevant context and understand the social dynamics as well as human effort for survival and progress.

Literature and poetry offers an insight into human emotions, man's relationship with the inner and external nature, his urge to communicate and express; the diversity of human thoughts, the power of language and the power and fertility of imagination.

Science offers a powerful trigger to creativity and enables a learner to approach problems with an inquisitive and inquiring mind. It encourages logical thinking, problem solving and rational approach to analysis of information. Skills of observation, skills of organisation, and skills of coordination are empowered through the study of sciences. Each discipline of learning, be it art, sport or graphics helps in developing aptitudes towards the diversity of nature and human existence. Education has to help in celebrating this diversity.

The objective of learning, therefore, should address the expansion of human knowledge and skills. Reading habits take a prime place in the process of knowledge exploration.

While reading novels, stories and comics do help in acquisition of various learning inputs, it is important to take to some serious reading. Classical literature has a great role to play in shaping human thoughts and the process of inquiry. It also helps in understanding the relevance of values in human life systems and positioning them appropriately in one's life.

The process of education is not a mere process of acquisition of information, its reproduction and "passing" an examination. No doubt, examinations facilitate evaluation of the learning process to show where we are on a learning curve; however it must be understood that it is not the sole aim of education.

Education is a process of pursuit of excellence in whatever discipline we pursue. It should help us to acquire mastery in any discipline. Remember the words of Oscar Wilde: "Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught."
