I am a School Teacher...Am I Authorised to Tutor Privately as well?
Unlike other countries where there have been attempts to ban private tutoring, Malaysian school teachers are allowed to tutor outside school hours to supplement their incomes. In Malaysia, sometimes students do not receive the attention they need in a large large. In fact, a study in private tutoring in Malaysia has found private one-to-one classes is the best teaching method for Malaysian students. To date, 30,000 teachers have chosen to use Superprof to find work as private tutors and offer private tutoring. Why not teach in a more relaxed and conducive environment as a private tutor or online tutor? It is very important to check the policies of your own school or tutoring institution, as some companies place restrictions on the ability of teachers to teach children from their own class or school. You may want to limit your tutoring to students outside of your classroom or school, even if not directed to do so, to avoid conflicts of interest such as perceived favoritism that may arise. It's also important to remember that teaching and mentoring can be very different and require alternative skills. Coaching requires fewer qualifications but may have the passion and desire it takes to be a great teacher. In Indonesia there is no law against offering courses while working as teachers and many supplement their income by offering private tutoring and online home tutoring.

Jobs for Ex Teachers in Malaysia: Life After Teaching
Want a career change from teaching? Leaving the National Teaching Service is rarely ever an easy decision for teachers wondering how to get out of teaching. Being a teacher is one of the hardest jobs there is and one that can be very rewarding at times, but for many, the negatives of a job in teaching substantially outweigh the positives. But do not fear, there are many jobs for retired teachers, ex teacher jobs, and teachers leaving teaching. The skills that make a teacher can be transferred to many other career paths. Why not consider becoming a private tutor or become an online tutor from the comfort of your own home. Tutoring is one of many other jobs for teachers and with Superprof’s guides on how to be a tutor; it has never been easier to search for jobs in education other than teaching. As a home tutor you may enjoy the freedom to develop your own style and curriculum not permitted within the education system. You could even teach a subject that you’re skilled in, yet not permitted to teach within school. For example, a physics teacher is fully authorized to begin maths tutoring jobs, English tutoring jobs, or online PT3 jobs.
What is Required of Private Tutors in Malaysia?
As a tutor working for yourself there are some legal considerations to think about to protect yourself and your students. Firstly, it’s important to keep up with your income taxes and to declare your income to LHDN. Superprof is not involved in the payment process between tutors and students: it is for both parties to decide how they want payment to happen, whether it's in cash, by bank transfer, or via other means. Consider insurance. It’s not a legal requirement to be insured as a tutor in Malaysia, but you may want to consider public liability insurance, business and portable equipment insurance and professional indemnity insurance. Be aware of health and safety. This means providing a safe environment for students to learn. This is very important if you plan to teach from your home. Advertise honestly. Every claim you make must be factually correct, and you should be able to provide documentary proof of any qualification you claim to hold.
What Subjects Can I Teach?
At Superprof, we offer more than 1000 subjects across dozens of categories (sports/ academia/hobbies/music/etc.). You don’t necessarily have to be a qualified tutor to be an effective educator. For example, a professional pianist is obviously qualified to give piano lessons, but teaching involves much more than certification. It requires passion; love for your craft, enthusiasm and the ability to foster these attributes in your students. A piano teacher does not necessarily have to be a concert pianist, but they must have good ideas on how to become one and how to master the instrument and the music. If you want to start english tutor jobs, you need to have mastered the language yourself, be fluent or bilingual and able to explain concepts in writing, grammar and accent reduction. You may also be required to teach your students the basics of culture and history of the countries where the language is spoken.
How do I Create my Own Tutor Advert?
Creating your tutor ad could not be simpler, just follow the step by step instructions on Superprof and fill out each section. Here are a few helpful tips to help make it as visible as possible to potential students, allowing them to find you: Highlight your Strengths (your skills, your experience...) Ask yourself why a potential client may choose you over another peer tutor. Explain what differentiates you and makes your private lessons exceptional. Explain your learning style and teaching methodology. Tell your Story. Teaching is not just about passing on your knowledge; it is also about building a bond of trust with your students. Showing your human side is very important. Showing that you’re an interesting and thoughtful person, willing and capable of listening to others. Mention your hobbies, groups you’re part of, your travels, your past work experience, and successes in life. Focus on the Benefits: What are you Providing to your Future Students? Try to avoid technical terms difficult to comprehend. Also avoid bland or cliché phrases that do not detail what you will provide. For example, do not just say “I teach maths at all levels and for all abilities", mention the exact levels at which you teach (Kids, Secondary, PT3, Matriculation, A-level, GMAT, University etc.) as well as the exact topics (algebra, trigonometry, geometry, calculus, etc.) Include a Picture that Makes you Stand Out Clear frontal photos of your face are an important way for students and teachers to learn about each other. You will increase the number of contacts you make 10 fold by adding a high quality, profile picture of yourself. Review your Ad An advertisement full of mistakes will not be taken seriously. Re-read your ad with a text editor and make a final review before publishing.
Why Should I Offer my First lesson for Free?
If you do not have more than 1 review from a student already, Superprof requires you to offer your first session for free, however this does not have to be a formal lesson. The first meeting is usually reserved for getting to know each other, understanding the aims and objectives of the student and agreeing on a teaching plan that works for everyone. The first meeting can take the form most convenient to both parties. Even if you do have a review, Superprof recommends that you offer the first class for free because; It allows you to make a connection with the student The purpose of the first meeting is not to give a class to your pupil, but to get to know and understand what their needs are, set up a lesson plan and a teaching method that will allow your pupil to reach his/her goals. It is a small investment for a greater reward Offering one hour of your time for free to a student who may use your services all year and spread the word about your services is an excellent investment. It reassures students Students will contact you more frequently; it is more engaging for them.
Why be Responsive to Lesson Requests?
If your tutor listing interests a potential student, Superprof will automatically send you an email/SMS to let you know that a student wants to take a class with you. Be reactive! Some students contact several tutors at once to be sure to find a perfect fit. The longer you wait to answer them, the more likely it is that the will find another teacher in the meantime... The more responsive you are, the more Superprof will improve the visibility of your ad (reactivity is part of Superprof's selection criteria).
A Specific Approach to Tutoring
The most important aspect of your lesson is to restore the student’s self-esteem and build their confidence. Whether you want to teach English online, French, English reading, computer science, biochemistry, econometrics or piano, it is important to be enthusiastic and encouraging. In a student-teacher relationship, it is essential to implement a "2 way street" where students feel comfortable to ask questions and challenge themselves. There is no magic recipe to tutoring. Each tutor has his or her own exercises, syllabus and tips to help the student succeed. Each tutor must put in the time to create an individualized, structured and personalized program for each tutee. Through this approach, the student can acquire new, and reinforce old, methodological skills.
