2. Cost of Tuition Fees

With the rising standard of living in Singapore, cost should not be overlooked. Even though reports & news claim that parents are willing to pay for additional tuition services, we still believe that you would want your dollar well-spent. Our teachers strive to help students deliver better results in shorter time (which converts to cost savings for parents/students).

5. Class Size : Teacher-Student Ratio

Focus Learning Lab classes have one of the smallest Teacher-Student Ratio averaging at 1:6 in comparison to the other Tuition Centres around. Research and studies have shown that an average 2 hours class with more than 8 students for higher education syllabus reduces the effectiveness of the lesson. Our 5FIMs follow the guidelines of having a good Teacher-Student Ratio of 1:6.

  

The table below will help you understand the effective Teacher/Student Average Time Ratio. A smaller class will effectively allow the teacher to have more time per student. However when the number of students in a class reaches 8-9, the effective average time would have dropped to less than 15mins for a 2 hour lesson and less than 11mins for a 1.5hr lesson.

Our classes range from 4-8 students with a maximum student class of 8 for Normal Classes. Only special intensive training classes will we exceed our 8 students/Class Limit.

 

Some people may argue that Teacher-Student Ratio is not an important factor but think about it; if a class has 10 students, how much attention can a teacher give to each student? This may be one of the most important considerations yet!
