In India, we have a trend of going to tuitions along with going to school and I am totally against it.
When I see 4th graders going to tuitions I wonder is the syllabus of 4th so hard! Personally, I have never gone to any tuitions and I still get decent grades. So all those parents who think without tuitions their child can’t get good marks, I am sorry but I have to burst your bubble and tell you that your thinking is totally wrong! If tuitions were so good, everyone going to tuitions would get excellent grades which is not the case in most situations!
Now, why are tuitions so bad? Tuitions are organized loot where children’s parents pay the tuition teacher to teach what they are being taught in school. Now there are some people who say that they go to tuitions for a better understanding of topics. I tell them that they are paying the school they are going to money for teaching them. It is their right to ask their teachers whatever question they have in their minds. There is no need to go to tuitions when your query can be answered in the school itself. Even if they don’t like the way that they are being taught in school, they have the internet. The Internet can tell you much more than what your tuition teacher can tell you.
Now, some people tell me that they use tuitions as a way to “socialize”. So basically what they are doing is paying money to make new friends! You can socialize in parks, online, playing sports but using tuitions as a way to socialize is a very queer and impractical idea to me.
Not only are tuitions a waste of time, but they are also a waste of money as well. It takes on average 10 minutes to reach your tuition and 10 minutes to come back home from your tuition. Added to this is the cost of petrol that is used in vehicles. This cost might seem small in the small run, but if we look at the larger picture, say 5-7 years, this cost would come out to be huge.
If the students have already studied what is being taught in the class in their tuitions, they create a nuisance in the class not allowing those who have not studied to learn. This forces the other students to join tuition as well creating a vicious cycle. Such students who disturb the class think that they know what is being taught, they can do anything going to limits of even forgetting moral values. I ask them if they are dependent on tuitions for education, where are their manners? Education if just not studies, also include basic moral values.
I would recommend you to use this tuition money elsewhere. Use it to learn new skills. Put it in fixed deposits or other funds where you will actually get something worthwhile in return unlike tuitions
I have nothing against tuition teachers. I agree they also work for their money but I am against this whole system of tuitions.Tuitions are just a tool to waste money and time. Try self-study and I guarantee you that you would feel having much more time to learn new things besides studies and would get much more leisure time
