We want to revolutionise the Humanities tuition market in Singapore. We want to change the ways people learn and think – and that does not stop after you have completed your A-levels. Our unique and exclusive alumnae internship programme continues to help you soar, allowing you to make a difference to your juniors and learn invaluable practical skills.
Building our students, for our students
At GP Tuition Singapore, we believe that your journey with us does not stop after Junior College. You have learned with us in the classroom–now, learn with us on the job. With demand for effective and directed academic guidance in the country and region at an unprecedented and growing level, there has never been a better time to delve into this dynamic and exciting field. If you see yourself carrying on the good work of your tutors and helping us make this enterprise a national and regional success, then we’d be glad to work with you again.
Exclusive to our former students, our highly selective internship programme takes in a small number who best fit the needs and culture of our fast-growing and fast-moving firm, hand-picked by our CEO and Principal Tutor, Mr. Simon Ng.
Teaching & Content Development Intern
You derive joy and fulfilment from moulding and preparing young minds to meet their myriad immediate and distant challenges, just like your tutor did when you were in JC. You believe that rigorous mental training and the building of habits of mind is the solution to widespread ignorance and oblivion. You are acutely aware of the high-stakes educational race and the many hoops you have jumped through, and want to make sure that nobody has doors shut just because they can’t play the game. Or maybe, you’ve just become really good at passing exams–and believe that others can be, too. After all, didn’t our firm help you to do exactly that, not so very long ago?
You will assist our tutor-partners in the design and delivery of teaching materials to students at the Secondary and Junior College levels. Whether by fleshing out pedagogical ideas and outlines with interesting and pertinent elaboration and packaging, or by engaging students with specific yet scintillating lessons as a substitute tutor, you will be exposed to the ins and outs of life as an educator. This will prepare you for a career in public or private education or training.
Information Technology Intern
Computing is your lifeblood. You believe that the educational methods of the 20th century must be revamped and brought up to speed with the technologies, trends and demands of the 21st. You believe that the worksheet will one day go the way of the slide rule or the slate board, and want to send it into history.
You will assist our Head of Learning Technology and his IT team to develop the most user-friendly and effective learning tools. These tools will allow our in-centre students to augment their learning with on-demand access to resources or even interactive help, while playing a key role in our diversification and expansion into the region and beyond.
Marketing & Business Development Intern
You believe that what is made, must be sold. You recognise the importance of a sound promotional path and shrewd business acumen in allowing even the most sterling product to scale and secure the market. Markets move fast, and minds move faster, so you want to help us surf the market and be imprinted in potential customers’ minds.
You will assist our CEO and Principal Tutor, Mr. Simon Ng, and his business development team to promote our product and improve our brand awareness, while playing your part in determining our future, ruddering this ship into uncharted seas. Every bus stop, magazine page or social media site is potentially our canvas, which you will help fill. Leave your mark on the education sector!
Talent is cheap, ability is priceless
We believe in rewarding those who show both a loyal commitment to the firm and the sector, and an indefatigable thirst to learn and a keen practical orientation. Interns can expect a market-competitive honorarium. We place our people first, and will give former interns special consideration when expanding our permanent team.
Featured Intern – Joel Long:
The Resilient & Resourceful Entrepreneur
I graduated from Serangoon Junior College in 2014. During my studies, I joined the soccer team and made some remarkable achievements during the school nationals competition. Although I found it challenging to juggle between my studies and CCA, I managed to attain excellence for the A Level examination.
Why I Join The Programme
I joined the Internship Programme because I wanted to achieve something meaningful during the post-A Levels period. Simon, who not only teaches A Level General Paper but also heads the Internship Programme, is an inspiring figure that I look up to. I believe that under his guidance, I will gain some experience that would be relevant and applicable for my future career.
What did I learn from this programme
I learnt a lot of useful skills during the Internship Programme, such as undergoing project planning, ideation and project execution. As the internship programme involves a team of professionals, such as IT programmers, software developers and designers, I get to interact with them and tap on their pool of experience and expertise. It was an eye-opening experience for me and I am grateful for being given this opportunity to be onboard for the programme.
Tell us one memorable experience during this programme
During the Internship Programme, I was tasked to plan the starting phase of a project and lead the discussion during a meeting. Initially, I felt nervous standing in front and speaking in front of the professionals and my fellow internship friends. I decided to convince myself that it was a learning experience, so I plucked up the courage to speak up confidently and explain the plan. It turned out that Simon and the permanent staffs were impressed with my discussion. From then on, my presentation skills improved.
Tell us one advice you would share with future interns
Be bold. Do not be afraid of making mistakes. I had my fair share of mistakes in the past. Like students, it is part of the learning process. What matters is how you learn from them. Besides, the Internship Programme is run by experienced risk-takers who will guide you. Despite all the ups and downs I experienced, the key takeaway is to the willingness to try, even with the possibility of failure. Go for it!
