2) What are some things that you wish you could have done better or not done when you look back?

3) I am currently tutoring some students and I am debating whether to drop them as I do not want to over-commit to my tutees. If you know or have heard of anyone's experiences, do lmk!

Thank you from a junior looking forward to join the teaching fraternity ^_^

Have a great day ahead and its the school holidays!!!

The experience differs from school to school. From what I see, UTs usually do tag to a form class and CCA BUT it is more for experience and donít have to do admin or planning etc. Worklosd is definitely less, no committees etc. You can definitely still juggle your tutees

Unregistered It's interesting cos my group of friends are the exact opposite. Sec school teachers all giving tuition now cos they damn free since they end school much earlier than the pri sch teachers. Most sec sch teachers giving tuition to the pri sch kids lol. The interconnectedness LOL.

Whatever it is, sec sch and pri sch both have the liberty of giving tuition, just that need to declare and got hour limit. No comparison between who has 'more time' (no such thing in MOE) to give tuition or who has it better etc. Both got their own set of challenges and both are draining (be it time or energy)

Relax, friends.

Like Iíve said. Itís just based on what my own circle of teacher friends are doing. There is definitely a higher % of pri sch teachers giving tuition, for my personal group of friends.

Pri sch t have their own difficulties eg more dealing w parents and like mentioned by some unhappy person previously - those monitor sch bus stuff and whatnot.

So I would say the best time to approach is actually after Sep holidays. Because even though teachers will be busy with revision and then a truckload of admin, but at least you send at a time where things are more firmed up (e.g. a known budget to the Music dept on engaging a certain AMIS programme (decided during review))
Thank you so much for your insights! Indeed I have been getting a little more response lately as compared to Sep-Oct.

From what I understand, Q3 is the best time to reach out as curriculum planning week has to be done before December? However, after reaching out to primary schools via cold emails, there were only 4 schools that were interested.

After reading previous threads in the forum, the workload of teachers seems insane. The last thing I want to do is add on to it. Does anyone have advice on the approach for a smoother integration?
