Tutors must have also obtained:

If you fulfil the above criteria, you may proceed with the tutor application. All applications to become tutors are to be submitted online via MENDAKI’s Online Programme Registration System (OPRS). You may access it at http://oprs.mendaki.org.sg.


For ease of application, please prepare scanned copies/ photos (system accepts .pdf, .jpeg, .doc files) of the following BEFORE you proceed with your application:

  • Recent passport-sized photograph
  • NRIC (front and back)
  • Educational certificates and transcripts (from ‘O’ Levels onwards)
  • Other relevant supporting documents (testimonials, etc)

Tips For Application:


  • Scroll down and select “Tutor Registration”
  • After completing the first step, we recommend that you click “Save as Draft” before continuing to the other steps.
  • Once you do, a tutor registration number (TRN) will be sent to you via email and SMS. Do take note of this TRN in case you encounter any problems, as you will need to quote your TRN in the email when seeking help.
  • When registering, be sure to specify the programme you wish to tutor for in the coming year i.e. “MTS” or “CTP”. Also, please only indicate the zone you would like to teach in based on proximity to your address.
  • Once your registration is complete and successfully submitted, you should receive an email indicating this and subsequently a Zone Officer from SENSE will contact you to schedule a face to face interview if you are successful.

We regret that incomplete registrations will not be considered, and only shortlisted applicants will be notified for the interview.
