    Let talk about tuition fee in Malaysia


    Written by Brendon Lai
    Monday, 01 Jan 2007

    Tuitionmall.com has been operating for about 9 months since it was launched in March last year. During this period, I have gathered a lot of thoughts about "Tuition" in Malaysia, and I decided to setup a blog page in this website and share those ideas with all of you.

    Before I start to share everything, I would like to apologize if there are any grammar or typing errors in the article. This is because I am from a Chinese education background and English is not my frist language. I welcome any comments and corrections if you feel there are any mistakes in my article.

    In the daily operation of this business, I am dealing with a lot of parents and tutors, and the most frequent question the parents or students will ask is about the tuition fee.

    Is there any standard rate for a home tuition? My answer will be “YES” ( refer to the table below).

    Non- Graduates/
    Undergrads

    Graduates (Part-Time Tutors)

    Full-Time Graduate Tutors

    Ex-School Teachers

    Current School Teachers

    refer url http://www.tuitionmall.com/tuition-rate.php

    But this standard rate is just a reference to parents. The actual rate normally will be based on the following criteria:

    1.

    The location on the student's homes
    The rate will be higher in certain areas in the city compared to the suburban and rural areas. For example the tuition fee in Damasara is higher compared to the fee in Kajang. Another example is the rate in Kuala Lumpur is higher compared to the rate in Ipoh.

    2. The number of years of the tutor experience
    Tutors with more than 5 years experience will charge higher compared to those with less experienced. Normally parents are ask for experienced tutors, so the demand for experienced tutors is high thus they can charge higher.
    3. Distance to travel to the student's houses
    This is one of the consideration by the tutors when they quote the fees to parents. Higher fee is charged in order to cover their petrol and travel time.
    4. Number of students in a group
    1 to 1 tuition fee is always higher than 1 to 2 or 1 to many. This is because the time used by the tutor is the same, so they can reduce the fee for the second, third students and so on. However, 1 to many is difficult to teach compared to 1 to 1. That is why we can't pay the same rate to 1 to 2 as we pay for 1 to 1.
    5. Special qualification of the tutor
    Sometimes parents request for a tutor with some special experiences or qualifications. For example the tutor has to be a SPM paper examiner. Of course, tutor with this kind of experience will charge higher compared to the common teachers.

    The tuition fees mentioned above are more for the academic subjects which are for students from pre-school to STPM. Let discuss a little bit about the professional courses like adult English, music, dancing etc. Obviously professional courses charges are much higher compared to academic tuitions. As I understand from a few tutors, they normally charge more than RM50.00 per hour, and some of them charge up to RM100 / per hour.

    Nonetheless, as a tuition agent, I am opened for discussion on the tuition fee between the tutors and the parents, The iimportant thing is both of the parents and tutors are comfortable and satisfied with the fee. I am hoping all the tuition jobs that I have matched will be last longer, so this is very important.

    What do you think? I would appreciate if you could add a comment on this post ...

    I saw your tuition rate for graduates is not adequate at all. I've been teaching for the past 8 years and my rate for std 1 to std 3 in the beginning year was RM 20. Are you saying that after 8 years, the rates are still the same? Now, the actual rate for graduates (part time or full tiime tutor) ranges are UPSR (RM 30 to 40 per hour), PMR (RM 40 to 50 per hour), SPM (RM 50 to 60 per hour) and STPM (RM 60 to 70 per hour). Rates in your website is only for students next to the tutor's house

    The topic being discussed is noteworthy. However the standard of English used in posting this blog is somewhat appalling. I hope this is does not reflect the quality of tutors and tuition centres advertised by this website.

    I think the price is negotiable in between the parents and the tutor

    I do agree with Klingon regarding the standard of English used in this posting. Please ensure infuture that basic grammar and sentence construction are applied.The standard of English reflects on both tuitionmall and the rest of the tutors.

    It depends on the reputation of the tutors as well. It depends on how many A the tutors can produce and how well the tutors able to understand and know the weaknesses and strengths of the child.

    Rates is generally based on the quality of the tutor's teaching methodology and number of lessons and hours.

    I don't quite understand the articles by Brendon Lai because of the way he writes in English, sad to say.

    i think there should be a standard rate according to the experience of the tutor. its no fair for the tutors and the parents of the students, if someone just predict a rate without doing any research. will you buy a house that will have the same price for ten years to come from today, absolutely not! this is a business and business should grow each year not just be the same each year. so, think again!
