Very often, in Malaysia, especially large cities such as Kuala Lumpur, Johor Bahru & Penang, parents or students would like to find private tuition classes apart from their school lessons to enhance their learning outside the classroom. The subjects that the students usually will encounter problems are science subjects such as Chemistry, Physics, Biology and advanced mathematics subjects such as additional mathematics or further mathematics and also language subjects such as Mandarin, English & Bahasa Malaysia.
Firstly, the easiest way nowadays, with the advancement of technology, is to find private home tutors through Google search in Malaysia. By searching online, there is a complete list of tuition agencies to select from, including My Quality Tutor Malaysia, My Private Tutor Malaysia, Tuition Hero, Champion Tutor Malaysia, and many more. These agencies will then have their private tuition coordinators to match the private tutors for you, usually, it is free-of-charge. Parents or students will first submit their home tuition requests on the website, which will then be received by the agencies. Following that, suitable and qualified tutors’ profiles will be sent to the parents/students for review. Then, parents/students can pick their private home tutors based on the qualifications and experience in the subjects. Usually, experienced private tutors in Malaysia would be able to teach syllabus such as PT3, SPM, STPM, IGCSE, IB & A-level.
Furthermore, another way to find a private tutor in Malaysia is through word-of-mouth such as neighbors, school teachers, friends’ parents, and so on. In Malaysia, usually in international or government schools, parents will have their Whatsapp groups/Facebook groups to discuss anything about educational information. By using these groups, parents/students would be able to find qualified private home tutors for the subjects that he/she has problems with. For instance, let’s say student A has a problem with science subjects (Biology, Chemistry, and Physics), he/she can ask in the group, whether is there any great home tutors within his place, eg Subang Jaya.
After you have selected your private home tutors, the next step is to be ready. Students should first prepare the topics that they have problems with and send them to home tutors before the private tuition class starts. For instance, for Mathematics subjects, students could send topics such as Calculus, Algebra, etc to home tutors so that home tutors can prepare in advance. By having tuition classes consistently, students are expected to improve with the right methods coached by the private tutors. First-class is usually the trial class, after the first lesson, if a student likes the private tutors’ teaching, then he or she may continue, else a change of tutor is also possible with the tuition agency.
In conclusion, finding private tuition classes in Malaysia has become a norm due to the convenience of not having to leave the house. Also, students can ask questions of the home tutors if they face problems with their homework. By having home tuition classes consistently, students are expected to learn better and perform better in school.
