Learn about the best things to do at Pulau Ubin and what to know before going to Pulau Ubin!

What is Pulau Ubin?

Pulau Ubin, shaped like a boomerang, is located just off the north-eastern corner of mainland Singapore. It was once a group of five smaller islets separated by tidal rivers, but it has since been joined by the construction of bunds for prawn farming to form a single 1,020-hectare island. Pulau Ketam (Crab Island) and Pulau Sekudu (Frog Island) are two other islets to its south.

Granite mining employed a few thousand people in the early days. Much of the original vegetation was destroyed to make way for the cultivation of rubber and other crops such as coffee, pineapple, coconut, and jasmine. Today, abandoned granite quarries stand as picturesque relics of Ubin’s history, while forests and grasslands have grown back to hide the ravages of the past.

Great review of Queenstown ActiveSG Swimming Complex: “This nostalgic pool retains its 1980s/1990s look, and it’s just a 5 minute walk from Queenstown MRT. The competition pool here is different from the pools in other swimming complexes as there are 9 lanes and the two ends are 1.2m and 1.5m deep. (Most other pools have 8 lanes and both ends are 1.2m deep.) The water level is also a foot lower than the edge, requiring the use of the ladder or very strong arms to get out.”

How To Get More Tuition Assignments

It is very easy to register as a tutor with Tuition Assignments! All you need to do is to go to their maps or press the “Assignment” Button to look at over 100 of their daily tuition assignments and choose whichever Tuition Assignment you would like to apply for! When you click the link to apply for the assignment, you will be brought to the specific agency to register for the assignment! It’s as simple as that!

HOW TO GET MORE TUITION ASSIGNMENTS

Please do make sure that you are filling up the correct information, when you are registering for any tuition assignment with any tuition agency

To increase the chances of you getting more tuition assignments and getting even more tuition jobs is by ensuring that you fill up all of the information correctly and exactly according to what the tuition agencies have asked in their forms.

Do not provide false information

When registering for tuition jobs – or any jobs – it is always best to be truthful about your experience and what you are able to teach. Giving wrong information will only cause problems for everyone. Therefore, always key in the correct and truthful information.

Make sure that you are able to meet the requirements for the tuition assignment that you are applying for

You’ve gotten all the required information, and have been applying for a few tuition jobs… but are still not able to get tuition jobs. Is it perhaps is because you are not applying for correct tuition assignment/assignments?

If you are tutor with 6 months of tutoring experience and the student is in Secondary 2 but you are only able to teach students who are in primary school, what are the chances of being selected by the client for the assignment? 

Some tutors are able to get the assignment but there is only a small chance compared to being a tutor who is dedicated to teaching secondary school students and has been teaching for many years.

Ensure you are friendly and responsible

Students and parents always love having tutors who are friendly, and who are responsible for being on time for the lesson, or even offering extra help without extra cost.

We are sure that if tutors are friendly to students and parents that they will be able to get many more tuition jobs since the students and parents will tell the tuition agencies about all the good things done by the tutor. The tuition agencies will then be more comfortable about highly recommended this tutor to future students and parents.
