TCher SG is collaborating with charities to provide children with free access to our curricula as a step to address the age-old problem of educational equity.
Partnering with various organisations such as the Singapore Children’s Society and Calvary Community Care, we have launched the Sponsor a Child Programme aimed at helping children from families in need.
It’s all part of TCher SG’s mission to provide these children with access to high-quality education:
We aim to help students achieve their academic potential.
We help students improve their grades and develop a keen interest in their studies.
We stretch and challenge our students beyond the mainstream syllabus.
We help our students develop grit, a drive to excel, and a growth mindset.

Calvary Community Care came to know about ZM’s need for academic support after working with ZM’s younger sister in our reading support programme.
The three children in the family are on MOE’s Financial Assistance Scheme. Seeing how ZM is an earnest student who is keen to learn, TCher SG was happy to sponsor her with lessons.
Here is what she has to say about her experience with us: “The lessons are fun, interesting and very helpful. I like how we are given questions to work on and then the teacher goes through the answers, which helps me understand my work. The teachers are friendly and they give very clear explanations.”
Their father, Mr Ang, shared that parents who are not proficient in English struggle to help their children in their schoolwork. Without the means to provide their children with tuition classes, he and his wife could only leave their three children to manage their studies on their own.
Mr Ang says: “TCher SG’s lessons have been very good for my daughter. The teachers explain the lessons in a very clear way and help my daughter understand her work well. Since P3, ZM would get so stressed before an exam that she would fall sick. I have even spoken with her school counsellor to see what we can do. As parents, we don’t put any stress on her, but she would still be very frightened each time before an exam. But this time, after attending TCher SG lessons, I was very surprised that she was so calm before her school prelim exam and she did not get sick.
I used to feel quite helpless as I did not know where to get affordable help for my children’s studies, and when TCher SG offered to sponsor the lessons for ZM, I was so surprised. It was a wonderful surprise, an unexpected blessing from God. It came just at the right time for her PSLE. We really appreciate the help from TCher SG. Thank you very much!”
SY was a student in Calvary Community Care’s reading support programme, GROW when she was in P1 and P2, and is a very keen student and independent learner.
Due to language limitations, SY’s parents feel they are unable to provide the academic support that their daughter needs.
SY is exceptionally motivated and is a fast learner. She has the potential to do very well in school if she can get additional support in her studies. TCher SG stepped in to sponsor SY with the lessons she needs.
Here is what she has to say: “I really enjoy the Science lessons at TCher SG. Teacher May explains the lessons in such a clear way that I find it easy to understand and remember. I feel that I have already improved in my school work, and I am excited to think I can do well for my SA2 exams this year.”
Let’s help provide every child in Singapore the means to access next-level after-school learning, regardless of means or background.
With TCher SG’s Sponsor a Child Programme, you can sponsor students’ access to TCher SG’s lessons and resources, so that they get the support they need to enhance academic performance and gain learning confidence – in school and for life.
