Group tuition mimics the same learning environment a child has at a school in Singapore.
With economies of scale, Singapore tuition centres are able to offer cheaper rates but at the same time, you are also paying for divided attention of the tuition teacher split between all his or her students.
While any kind of tuition increases a child's exposure to the subject and naturally his or her grades.
Getting the A*s requires your child to achieve a full understanding
, tuition should attempt to fill in specific gaps in your child's knowledge.
This can only be done by accessing your child's weaknesses and strengths which is impossible in a group tuition setting.
This can only be achieved with private tuition.

A simple analogy is private tuition is like specialised medicine. If your child is weak in a certain topic, the private tutor in Singapore can decide to conduct the next 3 or 4 lessons to focus directly on the weaknesses.
In group tuition in Singapore, the tutor is forced to evaluate the class as a whole and address the median weakness within the group. If you child happens to have a different set of knowledge gap, the entire tuition is rendered ineffective.
