Plus, peolpeople can point to how teachers enjoy June and Dec holidays, which even if you take away meetings and lesson prep is still quite substantial.
You are out of touch. Most of the high impact, innovative and efficient ground-level work in MOE is being done by the GEO3 and GEO4 officers. Their salaries are NOT 100k per annum. In a country where a premium is placed on quality education, it is not difficult for them to go outside and earn a comparable salary but with mind-blowingly greater levels of work-life balance. If not that, then, to go outside and earn mind-blowingly more money for the same volume and intensity of work.

The mass brain drain at the GEO3 level is starting. Is a 10% salary bump enough to arrest the exodus? We'll see... not all problems can be solved by throwing cash at them.

the last few pages really hit the nail on the head for a lot of suffering GEO3 officers.

I am one myself - 6 years as GEO 3 - First Class Hons from NUS but stuck in a school where many GEO5 are just cruising and constantly rejecting work and their best skill is siamming arrows. But know how to talk a lot of self praise when cannot keep up with technology and are despised by the students - most of the work are really done by the GEO3 and GEO4 who are cannibalising themselves and burning themselves out.

Solution is to also reject the work and make the HOD spread it out more evenly - but they also scared of the geo 5, who have no qualms of doing a crappy job - then end up next year arrow the geo 3 again.

Short answer: yes, it can be allowed


Long answer: BY RIGHT must get Principal's approval, and even if approved, cannot exceed 6hr/week, cannot have any evidence that it is affecting your work in school, bla bla bla bla bla bureaucratic bullshet

BY LEFT remember SAF last core value. Do what you need to do but lie low.

Itís wiser to volunteer for work that interests you than to wait for arrows to come your way. Arrows are usually work that you wonít like.

Thanks for this answer. How do Sch teachers view teaching tuition as a full time gig though?

When I was a kid, I used to attend this tuition centre, which has only grown larger and more expensive, but you pay for what you get.

So I always assumed teaching tuition full time pays better.

this is easy to say... but work assignment is usually already "locked on" to specific people by SLs and KPs... high profile work usually reserved for scholars...the rest will be thrown down to others...If laojiao GEO5s reject, thrown down further to the lower grades...

You have been correct all this while. If you calculate the pay per working hour, full time tutors do have a higher earning rate.

I've got a friend who is a full time tutor and she enjoys her freedom and work life balance a lot. No restrictions of any kind from Ministry, no marking, no lesson planning, no CCA, no committee, no FTship. Can plan own flexible hours, can have some online tutoring, can even play mobile games with her kids during breaks in between. She earns probably around the salary range of a GEO4. May be slightly higher or lower depending on the number of kids she decides to take in.
That is the goal. Thanks for sharing !

Will principal approve? Wouldnít he think that this teacher is too free to have time to do tuition?
