After school tutoring
Extracurricular activities are a crucial part of schooling, and tutoring plays a considerable role in the process. The amount of homework we used to get still baffles us, so it’s only fair to get some extra help for the best grades possible. After getting out of school, off to the tutorial centre we go. We would have to stay for hours before heading home for dinner and a long night of work that awaits us. This tutoring culture is prevalent for children of all ages in the city, from complicated math classes for primary school kids (because every six-year-old should know how to do algebra) to intensive DSE preparation classes with ‘star tutors’ that are perceived as celebrities by students and their parents. Just take a look at the large billboards outside shopping malls and their dramatic poses – they mean business!
