Tuition Programme

Tuition Programme

Started in 1993, CDAC Tuition Programme aims to help academically weak students from less-well-to-do families to do well in their examinations.

Offered at 40 locations all over Singapore, our tuition programme provides convenience to students. Besides, more than 90% of tutors are NIE-trained. Our small class size of about 8 to 12 also allows tutors to give more individual attention to students.
