Suspension in Person Private Tution and Enrichment for students age 18 and younger

In-person private tuition will be suspended from 19 May to 13 June.


This comes in the wake of the suspension of physical lessons at tuition and enrichment class.

All organisation and individuals offering tuition and enrichment activities, whether academic or non-academic, must shift their lessons online. This includes but is not limited to education and development support activities such as arts and culture classes, religious classes, sports and physical activities.

This applies to Private Tuition/Enrichment in Private Residence too.



It will only apply to students age 18 and younger.

Given that at least one case is a private tutor, this directive is timely based on yesterday's daily reporting.

Case 63333 is a 26 year-old female Singaporean who is a student at the National.     Institute of Education (NIE), and a part-time private tutor. She had last gone to NIE on 30 April. She developed body aches on 13 May, and a blocked nose and cough the next day. On 15 May, she sought medical treatment at a General Practitioner (GP) clinic, where she was tested for COVID-19. Her test result came back positive for COVID-19 infection on 16 May. Her serology test result is pending.

a. MOE-registered Foreign System Kindergartens; 

b. Organisations providing full-time pre-tertiary education to students age 18 and below that leads to a qualification, i.e. Private Education Institutions (PEIs) registered with the Committee for Private Education and Privately-funded Schools (PFSs)1 ;
