Tueetor’s pleased to have done the heavy lifting and are happy to list at least 4 groups of worthy ideas for you to consider ?

Some of the subjects being offered by our Singapore trainers include Archery: https://tueetor.com/silietan, Martial Arts of all kinds https://tueetor.com/lew, and if you can, form a team with your buddies and learn Volleyball, at an indoor court or at the beach, where we’ve got up to 6 different trainers: https://tueetor.com/search?subject=218.

Tueetor Trainer Tan Si Lie believes in helping his learners in the betterment of their character and values in the long-term, more than just short-term surface achievements in the sport.

Archery is a sport involving shooting arrows with a bow, usually at an inanimate target such as a bullseye at a distance of a few metres right up to a significant distance.

Tueetor Trainer Lew considers himself a major Martial Arts enthusiast and is constantly on the look-out for new techniques to not only improve himself, but also to share with others via his coaching, and to help them better attain a longer & healthier lifestyle.

Jujutsu, also known as Jujitsu or Jiu-jitsu, is a Japanese martial art and a method of close combat for defeating an armed and armored opponent in which one uses either a short weapon or none at all. The Brazilian jiu-jitsu is a method derived from Judo and Japanese Jiu-jitsu that focuses on grappling and ground fighting. BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themselves or another against a bigger, stronger, heavier assailant. Besides jiu-jitsu. Mr Lew also teaches kick-boxing, MMA and Muay Thai.

With rates starting from $20 per session onwards, Volleyball has become more mainstream with the help of burgeoning trainer talent all over Singapore.

#2 De-stress by Chillaxing

Do you know Tueetor has 5 trainers offering Latin Dance? Latin dance is a general label and a term used in partner dance competition jargon. It basically refers to the various types of ballroom dance and folk dance that originated in Latin America. The 5 most common Latin dances are the Samba, Cha-Cha-Cha, Rumba, Paso Doble and the Jive. If Latin Dance isn’t your thing, you can look at the 64 types of performing art skills you can pick up to relax and/or de-stress with, and at the same time find your artistic mojo-jojo. From belly dancing, vocals (singing), beatboxing, to K-Pop dance to Chinese bamboo flute, pique your musical, performing arts dance interest, right here on Tueetor.

No one has accused me of being a Picasso, but I’ve always been in awe of those who could doodle or illustrate way better than me. So with some 42 trainers on Tueetor who teach Art, there’s hope for me yet!

And it’s an amazing way to ignite something in us, and it’s so essential for life. So start feeding your creativity and colour your routine with a paint job or two.

#4 Feed Your Brain

Keep your grey matter healthy and humming. In a world where our education doesn’t end with school, there are so many non-academic subjects you can learn to feed your brain, so to speak. I find myself wanting to learn to handle my mobile camera better, to Instagram better, for example. My interest isn’t in selfies or food porn pictures, but in landscape/scenery photography. And this is where you’d find Tueetor being able to help. We have some 6 trainers who teach Mobile Photography and Editing, and some 58 trainers teaching Adobe Photoshop and related visual graphics cum editing software.

If you’d like to level up your presentation, public speaking and/or emceeing or hosting skills, Tueetor’s got the precise trainer just for you. With multiple skillsets and years of performance and emceeing under her belt, trainer MJ Velonza is also able to mentor you as your very own life coach, to get you on-point for your next major presentation and/or job interview.

Pick up some awesome new skills which do not require intense cramming or breaking the bank. With trainers offering training in conversational Mandarin to cryptocurrency to programming a drone for flying, flower arranging, feng shui, magic (read showmanship, sleight of hand, cardistry) to video editing, Tueetor has up to 500+ different subject offerings in total for you to choose from. One thing that’s worth mentioning is the 18 various subjects offered under Programming (or Coding). From Basic programming to html to C++ to Python, MATLAB, PHP, MSSQL to ASP, we also have a certified MOE instructor teaching drone programming/coding cum flying.

Building a drone, as someone once said to my son, is literally building a small flying computer. If you’ve never had any RC (radio control) modeling/build experience, then you would want to find a trainer to help you with the basic build and programming of the drone. The MAIN advantage of having a trainer though is such that you cut through all the product research and selection process, so that building a good, solid, reliable drone that won’t immediately crash and burn during your first flight.

#5 Make Some Moolah

You’ve become adept at a sport you’ve never dreamt you could learn, you’ve ohm-ed so much that you can chillax at the snap of your fingers and you’ve munched your way through an empty wallet. So what else can you do to while away your time? Make your own ‘dough’ of course!

All you have to do is register with Tueetor as a trainer, fill up your Profile page, upload your documents or other content to show how you’ve attained your mad skills and you’re all set to wait for the first ping of a message notification.
