How The Coronavirus Pandemic Affects Your Business And How Are You Coping?
Ingel Soong: At the outbreak of the coronavirus, many tuition and enrichment centers in Singapore are forced to close down and are not allowed to resume physical classes. This is expected since students from different schools will be brought together, as education minister ong ye kung explained. All national school games competitions and co-curricular activities were cancelled. Schools would later be re-opened in stages while centers have to remain closed. When physical tuition was first stopped, many parents have understandably felt apprehensive about online tuition and requested a pause in lessons. We are fortunate to have our students stay with us. For other education centers, there were parents who felt they were being overcharged even started petitions to request for refund or discounted fees.
