Full time versus part time tutor

Postby jacktutor » Tue Aug 07, 2012 5:02 pm

Hi,

Anyone has any experience to share about full-time vs part-time tutors? What about tutor gender, qualification or occupation? Do these factors make much of a difference on the student's progress in your opinion?

full time, part time are mostly students who will stop when exams are near.
female are more patience.
qualification is as long as got A for that subject, occupation should be full time tutor

That is not recommended..

qualification should be at least a level up, or at least, slightly above what is taught.

To ensure they have sufficient subject understanding to be able to teach properly.

Moreover, "one can score in exam doesn't mean one can teach", what they know may be sufficient to handle a question, but not to impart the correct knowledge.

For e.g. to teach O level, tutor shd at least completed A Level. To teach A level, tutor should at least be a degree holder or got a distinction in "S" Paper for that subject he/she is teaching.

"As long as A in that subject" is not good enough. IMO.
