Our Teaching Method
1: The Entry Test
Each new student is individually assessed by writing an STS entry test. This test ensures that students are registered in a class that is best suited for their learning needs.
2: STS teaches the course
Our qualified teachers explain concepts with carefully selected examples. Students receive ample support and feedback in small classes averaging 6 to 10 students.
3: Homework & Quizzes
We believe sufficient practice is necessary to support learning, and therefore homework is issued and assessed each lesson. Regular quizzes are also provided to track students’ understanding and progress.
4: Final Examination & Certificate
A course is successfully completed upon writing the STS final exam. A passing grade and an attendance record of 75% and above is rewarded with an STS certificate.
The Recipe for Success
We take learning very seriously at Success Tutorial School.
We have a special recipe for success and we owe everything to careful preparation. Just like any good ol’ recipe, it takes the best ingredients, and careful preparation to ensure the best results. To get our students ready for their lessons at school, we understand who they are, needs and goals. From there, we carefully craft a program that works for them, not us. After all, every student is different in their own way and have different goals they want to achieve, and we respect that! When students see that others’ care about their needs and goals, they automatically become more engaged and want to learn – when students want to learn, academic results can naturally be seen.
Different aspects of teaching are considered to ensure our tutorial programs remain effective: planning, delivery, communication, activities, and camaraderie. In addition to that, we provide the following to our students to guide them in their lessons and assess their progress:
- Interactive Activities
- Supporting Materials (Handouts, Visual Aids, etc.)
What Parents & Students Have To Say
“I find the program very interesting. At first, I thought I’d have a hard time with my lessons, but my tutors made them look so easy.”

Our Grade 10 General Science Tutoring Schedule
Our course timetables are regularly updated. Please view our Program Schedules to get the latest class times.
In 1992, Mr. Paul Choi started Success Tutorial School in a small unit on the second floor of a strip mall. There was only one table, a few chairs, a small desk and a telephone. Paul would be teaching 2 to 3 students of various grades at the same time.
Today, we are very proud that we have been in business for over 26 years! Growing from 1 teacher, a few students to having three campuses with over 60 teachers and administrative staff and more than 1300 students.
