MORE than 20,000 students in Tambun, Perak, will benefit from a free online tuition website starting next month.
The tuition will cover all subjects for Year One to Six and Form One to Five with seminars to be carried out for those sitting for the SPM examination.
Renowned tuition guru Sunny Yee, who will spearhead the programme, said the subjects included biology, physics, chemistry and additional mathematics.
“The etuition programme is in the form of on-demand learning where the students can carry out their revision anytime they wish.
‘’They can select the topics and sub-topics as suits them. It is comprehensive and will help the students,’’ he said.
Yee, a former columnist with The Star, said the online tuition was timely, especially for parents in the B40 category as it would reduce their financial burden.
He said the idea was mooted by Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, the MP for Tambun, as the Prime Minister wanted his constituents, especially from the M40 and B40 group, to benefit.
Yee explained that each subject would be conducted by two teachers, and that Bahasa Malaysia, English and Mandarin would be used to teach Maths and Science to cater to all mediums.
The etuition initiative was launched in Ipoh by Datuk Seri Shamsul Iskandar Md Akin, the PM’s senior political secretary, who represented Anwar.
Shamsul urged students to make full use of the free tuition on tambuntuition.com, saying that the programme would also help ease the burden of teachers.
“This programme is in line with the wishes of the PM to help the people,’’ he said, adding a similar programme was also conducted in Port Dickson previously.
