Office Work Tuition??

Postby Quintessential Mum » Thu Mar 10, 2011 3:09 pm

I have come across many average/above average students that take tuition for some/all of their subjects from primary school to university. I wonder how these kids will cope :roll: after they graduate and actually have to do their own work (without the help of a tutor) in their respective jobs. Maybe there is an opportunity to start "office" tuition services in future. :lol:

Such services already exist. Called executive coaching.

I agree.

After all, tutors don't actually do the kids' homework or take their exams, but good tutors help their kids understand what they want to achieve and help them get their goals.

Management courses are more like schools or enrichment, rather than tuition. Management courses teach a broad general how-to to equip, rather than focus on the individual, which coaches do.

For people helping the person do their daily office work, perhaps you're thinking about interns? :wink:
