teaching is really fun, but they pay like **** + never ending admin work. then need to satisfy those higher ups, no thx lol.

ya its very difficult, i tried my very best. during sch time if i free i go study, be it 30mins i just study, go home i commit another 2hrs mugging then go back to lesson planning and family bondoing. its very tiring and need alot of discipline and motivation.

when i failed cfa 2nd time, i wanna give up liao. need reapply 350usd++ and alrdy paid 4 digits+ for it. but I just live on to what i told my kids ' is ok to fail, but just dont give up '
whack on and finally passed it.

I also teach tuition ( try to squeeze in 4-5 times a week, and i charge around $80-100 per hr, 2 hrs each ).

I did very bad in school lol, though i love teaching and make classes really fun for the kids, but fk all the admin work and meetings, i did my bare minimum. thankfully i left. not worth.
Idol ......

Mind sharing what you teach for tuition? My rate is $60-$70/h only, teaching primary school subjects.

I totally enjoy teaching but the admin and parents and workload is really really too much. And with kids is another different level. Not sure how much longer I can endure. With kids, tuition might not be the best option because of the weekends which have to be burnt. Sigh.


I'm looking at other options. Anyone know if secondment to other govt sectors are better? Or are they the same like MOE?

i focus highly on sec sch and A's math and physics, sec sch my rate as high as $80, jc my rate as high as $100. I think cos i have good reviews and perhaps through mouth of words.

I also teaching in groups. One of my close friend's parents stay in landed, so i rent one of their rooms (with whiteboard of course) to teach groups tuition for $150 a day (grp tuition i will minus -$8 per hr for each students). Saturday have 1 batch from 9am-11am, (sec sch, 6 students ) then next batch 12pm - 2pm (jc students, i have 12 now, grew from 3 since jan 2022) , following batch 230pm-430pm (programming,$50 per hr). I started doing programming too in my free time back then, and coming up with my own 'lecture' notes (essentially i copied from one lol , but i make it organized and easy to understand. 2 students at the moment )

Half of saturday burn... but if you calculate the money for 1/2 saturday, around 8hrs, worth it ( for me la )

Some of my batchmates didn't even look for secondment. Just left completely for other public service sectors. They never looked back since.

iím in my first year of secondment at a statboard (education related), and itís been a refreshing change with no markings/parents/students at the back of my mind. leave is relatively easier to apply and get approved. however, the drawback is that you have to pick up and learn new things in a fast pace manner. in schools/classroom you have a timetable to follow, so youíre clear on your Ďdeadlinesí. but office work requires a of discipline and youíll need to manage your own calender as you work with various stakeholders
