Default Tuition Teachers Make 20k

Sunday Times just showcased 5 very successful and "most sought-after" tutors, a couple of whom are earning a 5-figure income every single month.

Physics tuition teacher Phang Yu Hon, 41, reportedly makes $20,000 from 90 students. I believe he maintains the website www.physics.com.sg.

Laura Oh, an NTU engineering graduate in her mid-twenties is getting a "substantial 5-figure salary" from 80 students and her tuition business. She is the employer of 10 full-time tutors.

Besides giving tuition, these tutors also write books, sell assessment papers and even publish magazines.

According to Sunday Times, the most popular tuition subjects are Maths and English.

So, if you have flair for these subjects and enjoy spreading knowledge, why not consider giving tuition? You may earn a substantial 5-figure salary!

That was a good article by ST.I`ve always been inspired by stories of young folks getting real , doing what they are good at,going against the norm,innovating, excelling and prospering financially as a result. Happen to know one of those featured tuition teachers during my Uni days.. Absolutely brilliant dude, articulate, charming, somewhat an intellectual rebel yet humble and full of community spirit. If I`ve got kids, I would have wanted him to educate my kids whatever the cost..Good education commands a premium..goes the same for good healthcare, tax/ financial management,even good char kuey tweow.. If you`re lucky enough to have a good/dedicated teacher,doctor, lawyer, accountant,broker,hawker etc, it always pays to reward them well by means either financially- through patronage of their services or simply by just thanking them for a job well done.
At the end of the day, how much you are paid is a reflection of how much society deems your contribution is worth..

But the ST article may mislead people into thinking that all tutors make so much, resulting problems like (1) more people getting into this business and (2) parents demanding tutors to lower the fees.

I know of a friend who is a tuition teacher making consistantly $15k+ a month, very easy to calculate their income by the number of students they teach multiplied by their fees.

But their work is not easy, my friend has to physically teach average 8-9 students a day, 7 days a week to make that kind of money, not to mention the travel time and expenses (she has a car). Even teaching until 10pm! Its hard work.

She always has to reject new students because she physically has no more time to accept anymore new students. If you are a good tuition teacher, parents are willing to pay top dollar.

There are the pros and cons. Since the pros has been highlighted more often than the cons, i will states the cons.1) Students postponing(quite common), so salary is not constant 2)You don't get students in November,December, little in January and Febraury.3) No bonus 3) No Medical Benefits or company insurance ( actually this is a small sacrifice, not much by the way) 4)If you are sick and dont teach, no pay, unlike in a fixed salary job, the most take MC and still get paid 5) No employer CPF contribution ( this is again a small sacrifice).

Ok so there you have it, the cons, but if you love teaching, go for it

Yes the high salary is possible for top tutors. But the that is to compensate for the tutor's hard work and diligence. Tuition is very taxing to the mind and body due to the prolonged talking and traveling.
And the monthly salary will average out due to the Nov-Dec, June and other holidays.
