Frequently Asked Questions
What qualifications do I need to have to volunteer for Homework Help?
You’ll need to be familiar with Singapore’s Ministry of Education Primary or Secondary school curriculum and most importantly, a heart for the children.
Is Homework Help the same as giving tuition?
A tuition teacher teaches and reinforces the syllabus required by the Ministry of Education for academic improvement and/or achievement at a fee.
A Homework Help volunteer provides guidance based on the work brought by the student, akin to a parent helping a child at home. It ranges from helping a child prepare for a spelling test, revise for Hanyu Pinyin, memorise multiplication tables to providing extra exercises for the students to improve a weaker area or prepare for an examination.
Do I need to be a member, regular worshipper or believer at the church to volunteer?
You do not need to be a member, regular worshipper or believer. Anyone who is willing to put others’ benefit before their own, is fit to serve as a volunteer in the community. We welcome you to find out more about our faith or join a care group to find your Carmel family.
