Life is tough

I feel like we are currently in a Market down turn, there seem to be an over supply of tutors compared to tutees.

I have registered myself with a few agencies and I'm still awaiting replies for a possible job. Any advice from you guys?

Angry BE CAREFUL OF NANYANG ACADEMICS

This agent called Mun Yoke from Nanyang Academics went MIA for three months already, after failing to pay me 50% of the first lessons I gave to the students. I advise all tutors to avoid getting involved with this agency as this agency is obviously not up to good.

Question

As above.
I'm just bringing up this topic as I feel some of our fellow brothers & sisters may have suffered such problems whereby they do tutoring jobs (no contracts) & were unpaid.

If you're unsure what to do for such cases, get the details of the company, people you spoke to, phone numbers etc. and jot it down.

And if you don't know who to turn to, for such cases, you can either refer to CASE or the Small Claims Tribunal as they're the RIGHT PEOPLE that will help settle for you although you need to be patient.

Read up on the links given.

And do remember, always have a BLACK & WHITE for any agreement you make.
I hope this thread does help in some way.
How would CASE assist us? And under which section do we file a complaint?

For Small Claims Tribunal need to pay a fee right How about CASE?

CASE is more for your client (student & their parent) but what they can do for you is to make awareness that their freelance tutor from this agency are not paid.

Your case is to file Small Claims Tribunal but hard for those who have no supporting documents (details like how does payment to your service work & the duration to give you your payment).

Hi Jasmine855,

Did you manage to get your money in the end? Do you mind sharing more with me. I recently encountered a similar case with the owner of Nanyang Academics, Ethan Lau, the person who was quoted in the ST article in the link you provided.

Thumbs down Edupoint Tuition Agency

Edupoint tuition agency is basically a scam.

Parents.. please do due diligence in engaging with a tuition agency. Got assigned a tutor who was "vetted" to be qualified with 10 years of experience for my child. Long story short....it ended pretty badly after 2 months of tuition. Agency was rude when I asked for an explanation and insisted that I should have checked if tutor was qualified/suitable for my child. Happy agency when they are waiting for their commission and rude agency after money is received... sums up this unethical tuition agency.

Looking for experienced Teachers

If you are a well-qualified and experienced Teacher willing to take tuition assignments, join us here

We are NOT a tuition agency.

We are an informal group of Teachers /ex-Teachers giving tuition. Sometimes, our students ask us to recommend Teachers who teach subjects, or at areas that we do not travel to. We can refer you.

We do NOT take any referral fees.
