LOL. Students enter schools at different standards and have different learning paces so some need tuition. Frankly speaking, those who need tuition don't pay attention in school to begin with, don't do homework. It isn't the school teacher's fault. It takes 2 hands to clap. Tuition is beneficial who a kid needs individual attention. This is what school teachers can't provide in the school setting. My question was on whether giving tuition as a school teacher is allowed. Not if I should tutor.

I think we are allowed to tutor if it 'doesnt affect our duties'. There's is a cap on the number of hours iirc but nobody checks.

I'm in a neighborhood secondary school. No time and no energy for tuition. Most of my friends who give tuition are those in the primary track. Of course I do have some friends in sec school giving tuition too.

But as a HOD, 8-9k is a given, and when factoring in the bonuses, a 20mnth annual package is possible - 150k and above a year?

My question as a budding teacher (I am a MOE local teaching scholar) is - if I am financially motivated - does it make more sense to give tuition outside or strive to be a HOD.

I understand that to be a HOD, one will most probably be too busy to give tuition outside.
Lastly, do honour grades matter in terms of prospect?
1. True. Publicity. Publication. Competition. Enrichment programme. Committee work. Simi sai also do - for my colleague who is an SH geo4...

2. HOD pay idk. Sorry.

3. Financially motivated should give tuition especially if you're teaching subjects in high demand. Alternatively, aim to rise fast then quit. You will then be known as Ex-MOE HOD/SH - command more $$$. But may not go according to plan cuz teaching scholarship is not like v rare sorry.

4. Honour grades affect promotion (grade) and pay especially during the first few years. After that maybe not so much. I know someone who didn't have honours and was promoted slower than her peers at first. After 7-8 years, her capability and passion helped her to rise to a HOD.
(So she's like 29-30 when she became HOD).. I'm still an ordinary teacher but I'm okay hahaha.
