Five Considerations For Determining The Private Tuition

 

1. Student Level Factor

 

There is a direct relationship between the student level and the corresponding difficulty and depth of the teaching content. The higher the student level, the more effort the tutor needs to invest in, and the tuition will increase. For example, a form six student preparing for the DSE exam. The tuition is naturally higher than teaching a primary six student who is preparing a secondary school entry examination. Each student level has a corresponding tuition. Therefore, when discussing the tuition with the tutor, parents should make a reasonable budget based on the level of the student.

 

 

2. Tutor's Education Level

 

In theory, the higher the qualifications of the tutor, the better the teaching outcome should be, and the higher the tuition fee will be. For example a school teacher, his teaching experience and academic qualifications are normally more abundant than that of a form six student who has just completed the DSE exam. Therefore, his request on tuition will also be higher. However, parents should also note that teaching experience and teaching outcome may not be directly proportional. Parents need to confirm whether the tutor’s teaching method is suitable for their children, and do not blindly pursue the tutor’s high education and teaching experience. The suggestion here is that parents should accompany their children to complete the first tutorial, and then decide whether to continue hire this tutor.

 

 

3. Location + Transportation Factors

 

The location of the tutorial and the traffic conditions should be considerations of the tuition. According to experience, the consumption ability in Hong Kong Island is relatively high. Parents are usually willing to pay higher prices. If the location of the tutorial is more convenient, for example, it is close to the MTR station, or if the transportation time is shorter, the corresponding tuition will be slightly lower. But on the contrary, it will increase. Therefore, when choosing a tutor, parents should pay attention to the tutor's living district and choose the right one. This could help you to avoid high tuition.

 

4. Tutoring Subject Factor

 

Each subject has different levels of tutorial demand and popularity. For example, Chinese, English and Mathematics is the main subject of secondary schools, which is the subject most students need tutoring. Therefore, the usual price of tuition in the market is higher than other subjects. Some less popular subjects will increase in tuition due to the small number of tutors who can teach, for example, some professional exams such as music instrument ability test, IELTS, TOFEL, foreign languages, etc. Furthermore, if parents want their children to attend a tutorial in all subjects, the corresponding price will increase because the instructor needs to take care of multiple subjects at the same time, which is more difficult than giving a tutorial in one subject alone.

5. One-to-one/Group Tutoring Factor

 

In recent years, it is popular among students to self-organize group tutorial. In terms of price, the average tuition that each student needs to pay to the tutor is lower than the usual one-to-one (that is, one tutor, one student). Students can find a their friends who also need a tutor for the same subject. This can effectively reduce the financial burden of parents, but it should be noted that as the number of students grows, the quality of teaching could decline, because the tutor cannot take into account the learning progress and needs of each student. So, parents should not blindly pursue low the cost of allowing children to participate in group tutoring, the consequences can outweigh the loss. The best number of group tutoring students is 2 to 3.
