Super Tutors article in Straits Times

Postby daisyt » Thu Nov 19, 2009 10:02 am

From a friend, I have come across this article on Strait Times of June 2008 about super tutors in Singapore. Unfortunately, I could not find this straits times article on web, only managed to find something in asiaone. Anybody happen to have kids with these tutors ? Are they really so good ? :D

I am Channel News Asia's BlogTV tutor and I must say that being known must also come with higher level of professionalism. I believe the straits times tutors are also hardworking people, heard that some of them are so busy zipping from house to house. :D

I don't think so. Its stated on ST and my friend told me, one tutor is now charging $65 per lesson (2 hours) for group of not more than 7. So I guess its reasonable ?

per lesson for 7 students together is not expensive ($9 per student per lesson), but $65 per lesson per student will be. :p

WOW! Their classes must be rather big with many students. I calculated, based on what I charge, even if I work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 12 months a year, I can't earn nearly half of what he's earning!

Unless he hires other tutors to teach and he provides the materials, then it might be possible.
