How Big Is Tuition Field in Malaysia?

 

Tuition is serious business
 In Malaysia, tuition has become part of the educational environment to such an extent that nobody doubts its significance anymore. Tuition centers exist in large numbers especially in urban areas. So does tutoring services that are provided by personal tutors. Whether it’s conducted on an individual basis or on an institutionalized form, tuition has become a large enterprise, mobilizing extensive resources and employing many people.

Tuition dominates our lives?

         How pervasive is tuition in our country? According to a 1990 survey in Malaysia, about 83 per cent of pupils will have received some form of tuition by the time they reach upper secondary school. More extensive participation has been predicted in the coming years due to the growth of the industry. Malaysian pupils spend a large portion of their day within the confines of their schools. Nowadays, they seem to be spending an equal amount, if not more, of their time in tuition classes. This development has led some students in the survey to lament that ‘Tuition dominates our lives’.

Business as usual

         Even though the tuition enterprise is acknowledged as an education service provider, it is first and foremost a service-oriented but profit-driven business. In Malaysia, tuition services are made available by tuition centres, academies, training centers etc. Apart from these institutionalized forms of tuition, there are the private personal tutors with a much smaller clientele. All in all, what matters at the end of the day to these tuition providers is the profit derived from the tuition fees.

Tip of the iceberg

         How big is the tuition business? There are approximately more than 2000 officially registered tuition centers in Malaysia in 2003. The number of tuition centres operating without proper registration is not known exactly, but is estimated to be at least matching the legally operating ones. As to the costs involved, it is not uncommon to find urban households investing hundreds of Ringgit per month on tuition alone. It is difficult to assess accurately the size of the industry in monetary terms. This is partly due to the large number of tuition centers operating without proper registration, hence eluding governmental monitoring. Also, many private tutors loathe to divulge their earnings from tuition. Whatever the figure made available officially, it is safe to say that it would be an underestimation of the actual tuition market.

How big can it get?
         Malaysia is not the only country with a booming demand for tuition. In fact, we are not even the nation most obsessed with tuition. Parents in South Korea are reported to have spent US$ 25,000 million (Asiaweek, 1997) on tuition during 1996, which is equivalent to 150 per cent of the sum that its government invests in education. It is also reported that typical households spent the equivalent of US$ 1,950 a year on tuition for each child in secondary school and US$ 1,500 for each child in primary school. South Korea is not unique in this respect. In Japan, there are tuition centers which are so huge that they are listed in Japanese stock exchanges. Furthermore, the tuition industry there remains healthy despite the falling birth rate that has been gradually eroding the pool of potential clients.

The tuition spending

         In most cases, the greatest components of any tuition expenditures are paid for the tuition service itself. Others go into learning materials, stationeries, and even computer related paraphernalia such as CD-ROMs. Usually, charges increase at higher levels of the education system, and individual tutoring is more costly per person than group work or class work. The costs generally increase in proportion to the amount of personal attention that the pupil receives from the tutor. Everything considered, tuition fees could still be a substantial household expenditure, even for the middle income group.

Customer satisfaction a top priority

         However, many parents feel that the money is well spent. They can see improvements in their children’s grades. And the reasons for this aren’t difficult to understand. The fact is, tutors care about their performance in tuition classes. Like all other service-oriented businesses, tuition is an industry where customer satisfaction always come first. If the tutor or the tuition center is not performing as expected, students will simply shift to another provider. Competition abounds. Tuition centers engage in many promotional tactics to retain and increase enrolment. Discounts on fees are given for early registration, leaflets are widely distributed, free seminars and previews are held etc. Even the personal tutors who operate from their homes are not exceptional in this respect. Many of them provide discounts to ‘old’ students who re-enroll. Students from the surrounding neighbourhoods are also chauffeured to and from the tuition classes by the tutors. As an extra convenience to the parents, some of the home tutors also provide child-minding services as well!

Creating jobs & revenues

         Of course, the corollary of the high tuition expenditures is that tutoring gives substantial incomes to large numbers of tuition teachers. Some of them may already have other sources of income, for example, as teachers in schools. But others, such as the full-time tutors rely solely on tuition earnings. And a full-time tuition teacher is capable of making a comfortable living from his or her occupation. Because personal tutoring is mostly a shadow activity, much of the revenues received by personal tutors are usually beyond the reach of government tax collectors. Something which a registered tuition centre can only look upon with envy.

         As can be seen, tuition has major economic implications. On the one hand, it can be regarded as simply a manifestation of public demand. On the other hand, tuition can also be viewed as a symptom of the worldwide shift towards privatization and commercialization of education. Either way, nobody should dispute that tuition is a serious business indeed.

The Power Of Branding As Professional Tutor

Build your own brand in the field of Tuition

Tutor which has its own brand is more easily trusted and considered to have credibility.

The findings and observations show that Tutor which has a brand name in this field is more easily remembered by their clients than those without any brand.

It will be perceived as you are serious and committed in building a legacy in the field of education.

Not only that, it is easier for the client to recommend your service to others, including family, friends and relatives.

If you want to create branding make sure that there are appropriate keywords that relate to the service you offer such as Home Tuition, Private Tuition, Tuition Centre, Tuition Academy, and so clients easily can identify the service you offer.

You can also use the brand names like ‘Teacher Patel’ or ‘Tutor Aaron’ which will make you easier to be identified as a tuition teacher.

In addition, this will make it easier for prospective clients to search through Google and Facebook.

Logo is also important to reflect the business service and what you want to highlight. If you have the budget, you can hire a designer. Designers’ rates vary depending on the experience the designers have.

You can also get a great and affordable service from service providers like www.fiverr.com.

This will make it faster for any creative and professional service offered.

The trick is to find the service providers that have been long in service and that have lots of positive comments.

In order to use this service you need to have a credit card or debit card and PayPal accounts.

It would be more economical if you can design yourself, even simple ones, or get your acquaintance with designing skill to design for you.

If you focus on branding and raise your image as a provider of a professional Home Tuition service, clients will be willing to pay more than if you do not have the branding. This will give the perception as if you have a company.

Tagline is also important to reflect your service. Select a tagline that reflects your services and focus to help students such as our tagline; ‘Beyond Expectation Learning’.

If you want to get a general idea for your tagline, look through the search engine Google for ‘educational tagline’. Do not copy exactly the tagline by others.

Customize it with your tuition service and the benefits you want to highlight.

With the right techniques and proper branding your target clients may also be determined.

Bertindak sebagai seorang pelajar ketika itu, beliau juga terlibat dalam dunia kepolisan dan masih terus kekal dalam semangatnya untuk mengajar pelajar-pelajar di rumah pada waktu malam dan hari minggu.

Pengorbanan ini berbaloi kerana beliau mampu menyimpan untuk membeli emas sebagai aset, melabur di dalam ASB dan mampu untuk menyimpan sehingga ke tahap melangsungkan perkahwinan dengan pasangannya yang sama universiti.

Teknik Visual Untuk Memahami Topik Pecahan Dalam Matematik

Semoga perkongsian ringkas ini memberikan manfaat kepada mereka yang baru nak belajar pecahan.

 

Soalan ini umumnya mudah.

Tetapi penambahan pecahan adalah tidak semudah seperti menambah 2 + 3 = 5.

Dan itu sebab nya, kesilapan umum yang sering dilakukan adalah dengan menambah penyembut dan pengangka secara terus, dimana 
1+1 = 2 dan
2+3 = 5 maka

1/2 + 1/3 = 2/5.

Ini adalah kesalahan umum yang sering dilakukan.

 

 

 

Dan apabila tiba diperingkat ini, masalah yang timbul adalah;

1. Mengapa pecahan 1/2 didarabkan dengan 3
2. Mengapa pula pecahan 1/3 didarabkan dengan 2?
3. Mengapa penyebut perlu sama?

Untuk memberikan pemahan secara visual, penggunaan rajah ringkas adalah amat menarik untuk merungkai misteri ini.

 

Dimulakan dengan melukis dua rajah Segiempat tepat.

 

 

Pastikan kedua dua rajah TIDAK dibahagikan secara mengufuk ataupun secara mencancang.

Kalau 1/2 diwakili dengan melukiskan garisan mencancang, maka pecahan 1/3 harus dilukis dengan garisan mengufuk. Kemudian lorekkan kawasan yang mewakili pecahan tersebut.

 

Gabungkan kedua kedua rajah ini.

[Sains UPSR] Sistem Pernafasan Manusia Guna Peparu Buatan

Perasan tak, kenapa ada sesetengah pelajar kata belajar Sains sebelum ini membosankan? Malah, kalau ada kelas Sains hari tersebut mesti ada yang nak melarikan diri, berat hati nak belajar sains sebab bosan dan mengantuk 🙁

Sains ni betul ke membosankan ? atau cara pembelajaran yang tak sesuai dan tak menarik ???

 

Tahukah anda belajar menggunakan aktiviti ‘hands on’ sangat berkesan untuk pemahaman pelajar dan meningkatkan rasa minat dan semangat pelajar untuk belajar !

BETUL TAK?

 

Jadi, salah satu cara nak tarik minat pelajar adalah dengan menggunakan teknik dan kaedah yang menarik bahkan boleh menggunakan Alat Bantu Mengajar (ABM) yang awesome!!! supaya pelajar dapat memahami dengan lebih berkesan serta merasai setiap topik dan subjek yang dipelajari dengan baik.

 

Salah satu topik sains yang boleh menggunakan aktiviti ‘hands on’ ini adalah Sistem Pernafasan Manusia

Sistem pernafasan manusia terdiri daripada beberapa struktur dan organ yang penting. Bermula daripada mulut dan rongga hidung, seterusnya bergerak ke trakea (salur pernafasan) dan seterusnya bergerak ke paru-paru.

 

Proses pernafasan manusia

 

Paru-paru akan berlaku pertukaran gas oksigen (yang akan digunakan oleh badan) dengan gas karbon dioksida (yang telah digunakan oleh badan) dalam struktur yang diberi nama alveolus.

Ini adalah proses semasa menarik dan menghembus nafas :

  • Semasa menarik nafas
    1. Udara masuk dari: Hidung -> Trakea -> Peparu.
    2. Peparu mengembang.
    3. Dada naik dan mengembang.
    4. Diafragma mengendur dan turun ke bawah.

 

  • Semasa menghembus nafas,
    1. Udara keluar dari: Peparu -> Trakea -> Hidung.
    2. Peparu mengempis.
    3. Dada turun dan mengempis.
    4. Diafragma mengecut dan naik ke atas.

 

Mari kita belajar topik sistem pernafasan dengan cara yang lebih menarik dan seronok menggunakan kaedah peparu buatan (ABM) bersama dengan Cikgu Zaiju dan cikgu Amir.
