Tuition & Enrichment Programmme

Tuition Programme

The Chinese Development Assistance Council (CDAC) has been offering quality and affordable tuition to academically weak students from less well-to-do families since 1993.

The classes are mainly conducted at schools and CDAC centres which are accessible and convenient for students. CDAC Tuition Programme is offered at 50 locations islandwide.

We also offer enrichment programmes such as Phonics, Espeed Chinese and Challenging Math at our CDAC Centres.

Our small class size allows tutors to give more individual attention to students.
