Updated February 2024:
(1) THE MATHS LAB – WHO ARE WE?
The Maths Lab is a tuition centre chain, specialising in tutoring Maths at the primary and secondary levels. We offer both Centre based classes, and home-tuition classes.
We currently have one of the largest Maths Home-Tuition programmes in Singapore. Although we are a tuition centre, we started our home tuition programme during Covid-19, with many parents requesting classes from home instead. Post-Covid, we now have significantly more students joining our home-tuition programme and we have a shortage of maths tutors.
Overall, we are a medium-sized Singapore company. And we are one of few specialist Maths Tuition Centres in Singapore, with branches all over the island. We comprise a fun & enthusiastic team of academic nerds, and our team is growing rapidly!
Company: The Maths Lab Pte. Ltd.

(2) JOB DESCRIPTION
We are now hiring Full-Time Maths Tutors to join our Maths Home-Tuition Programme. As a tutor in our Math Home-Tuition programme, on most days you will be travelling to the student’s residence to give tuition, although you may have to come in to the office once or twice a week for meetings / admin duties.
Note that we are not a tuition agency. We are a Maths tuition centre chain, with several branches in Singapore. You will be joining us as a full-time staff. And you will be entitled to a competitive renumeration and the numerous benefits our employees are given.
If you are currently a freelance private tutor, we invite you to apply. You may find our overall renumeration to be surprisingly competitive, and we will be able to afford you more stability as a full-time job.
Full-Time Salary: $4,500-$9,500 (Depending on your experience level, and the number of students you have). In addition to this, we will be paying Employer CPF to you as well. Note that for all new employees, the first 2-months is a probation period where we will be paying you hourly instead ($40-80/hr).
Working Hours: You will have a choice of working 5 or 6 days a week (with 1-2 days off per week). Generally, you can expect to perform 20hrs to 32hrs of teaching classes each week, and you will also need to spend some extra hours preparing for classes.
Note that your salary generally depends on how many students you have, and how many hours you work.
Weekdays class hours are 2pm-8pm. Weekend class hours are 9.30am-5pm.
Work Location: You will be travelling significantly in this role, as you will be traveling to your students’ homes to give tuition classes. And you may have to come into the office once a week for meetings / admin duties.
Nonetheless, we will seek to minimise your travel time as much as we can. For eg, if you are staying in the west, we will not assign a home tuition at Bedok to you. Or if your first class on Tuesday is in Bishan, we will try to make all your Tuesday classes around the central part of Singapore.
Also, if certain classes are somehow scheduled that you have to “rush” from one location to another, we will also offer transport allowance for you to take a Grab taxi for this class.
Your Role : Your primary role and responsibility is to teach students in accordance with the MOE Maths syllabus.
Our students range from Primary 1-6, and Secondary 1-4.
Depending on which levels you’re comfortable teaching, we will assign you to teach only certain levels. For eg, you may be assigned to teach only Primary level students or only Secondary level students.
We will provide you with all necessary materials and additional maths coaching (if you need to get up to speed on certain topics).
* You must be a Singaporean to Apply *
* We are seeking applicants who have had MOE teacher or private tutoring experience *
* If you are currently a freelance tutor, we would be especially interested in speaking with you *
For applicants, all majors/diplomas are considered but here are some important points to note:
(1) you must be familiar with the local Singapore school curriculum
(2) you should enjoy working with kids
Minimum Experience: At least 1-3yrs private tutoring or MOE teaching experience would be preferred.
Minimum Education Level: Degree (Any major) or Diploma (Any major).
*To Start in 1-2 months time*

The Maths Lab Team
What We Look For:
We’re looking for motivated, team-oriented people who make things happen. During our first interview, you’ll likely find us to be informal & friendly, yet enthusiastic & proficient at what we do. We think people work best when they’re happy in their roles, and they have a satisfactory working environment.
When we talk to you, we are looking out for three things:
(1) Your Reliability
We will be entrusting you with students, and several other important tasks. We seek people who are responsible and pro-active. Your responsibility & reliability is very important to us.
To teach well, you do not have to be a top scholarship recipient. But you have to be willing to learn new things, to navigate new problems, and to deal effectively with students, parents, and of course, your peers at The Maths Lab.
(2) Your Work Ethic
We will be closely observing your work ethic. Our work can be fast-paced, especially during exam periods. And we are a highly proficient team.
We are looking for teachers with good work ethic — you must be able to work hard, and work fast at times. We are particularly impressed with teachers who are able to work independently and pro-actively. In return, you will enjoy high remuneration & an uplifting working environment.
(3) Your Personal Goals
We are interested in getting to know you. Particularly who you are as a person. Why you are applying to teach.
To work effectively as a team, we would like to understand your needs, as well as your longer term goals in life. Please feel free to speak to us candidly about your goals and your dreams. If you do become a part of our team, we care your mental well-being, and we want to get to know you well!
