  • Do you need qualifications to be a math tutor?

    I am not a teacher, I am a registered nurse in QLD. I am really interested in starting up a small tutoring service. I don't know why but I love teaching math and did tutor a few kids whilst I was studying to become a nurse. The years I would teach would be years 2-7. I really want to help kids and make this affordable for parents. So my other question is related to cost. I was thinking of tutoring small groups of 2-4 at a rate of $10-15 for 45 minutes. In addition I want to offer free tutoring for those that use my service throughout the holidays for a couple of days. What's your thoughts? my biggest concern is parents will be turned off as I am not a teacher. Thanks everyone!

  • Is it against some sort of rule or code of conduct to make students bring their own lab safety equipment to in-class labs?

    My teacher makes us bring our own gloves for in class dissections. If we don t have any we still have to do it.

    I work in a pre school and every morning when i open classrooms, I’m always alone without another teacher and the same 3 kids are dropped off. Jack and Ally are the two disruptive ones. Jack will throw chairs, toys, hit me and spit on me, make other children cry, color the floor and climb everything and ally will follow. I have to call upfront for help every morning for them to take jack out of the room because he always initiates it and after wards ally is calm. And whenever the lead teacher (I’m an assistant) leaves for her break, he goes insane the same way he does when I open the classroom. The children don’t listen or take me seriously but take other teachers seriously. I have asked my boss for tips and tricks so that I don’t have to call them for help everyday and they don’t give me any, basically telling me to keep doing what I’m doing. Does anyone have any tips? I’m on the verge of quitting because I feel helpless and bad at my job.

    Best answer: I assume that you're "reading out loud," and that you are in a situation where things could get uncomfortable if you mispronounce someone's name, such as in a classroom or at a formal occasion. If you have the opportunity to check out the list of names in advance, you can get advice from the name's "owner," or someone close enough to that person to know the correct pronunciation. If not, you can try making light of the situation by saying something like "The next person on our list is 'Stella,' and I'm probably going to mispronounce her last name, but it looks like 'Himpleburger.' Stella, did I come close?" At that point, Stella will either gently correct you, or tell you that you pronounced it properly. Either way, you win. If you're going to need to say the name over and over again, you probably will want to have a pen or pencil handy to note down a "phonetic" spelling from which you can learn the name properly. Otherwise, maintaining poise and grace by not letting the challenge appear to upset you is the best strategy. People whose names are spelled in unusual ways or are otherwise demanding get used to various mispronunciations, and usually are kind enough not to be upset by it.

  • My Math Teacher is Mean to me and my friends.?

    Best answer: If you haven't told your parents about her, do that-- teachers do not have the right to treat students like she treated your friend, and I think what she's done to you was not okay. If your parents know, but don't believe you, you can go to your guidance counselors/principal or another teacher you trust... show more
    Best answer: If you haven't told your parents about her, do that-- teachers do not have the right to treat students like she treated your friend, and I think what she's done to you was not okay. If your parents know, but don't believe you, you can go to your guidance counselors/principal or another teacher you trust and respect about this-- and they'll help you figure this thing out and set it straight.

    My oldest brother's Home Ec teacher was so disrespectful to him, she told him he'd die on the street-- which is beyond crazy, but it wasn't recorded, so all the teacher got was a warning, instead of getting fired.

  • Would a school in need of employees hire someone before they have their degree yet? Plz read details?

    Best answer: If they like what they see, they might hire you "degree pending," meaning that the fulfillment of the contract relies on your reception of a degree. If you fail to attain your degree, the contract becomes null and void and they will go back to the hiring process. That being said, unless they see something... show more
    Best answer: If they like what they see, they might hire you "degree pending," meaning that the fulfillment of the contract relies on your reception of a degree. If you fail to attain your degree, the contract becomes null and void and they will go back to the hiring process. That being said, unless they see something in you that is spectacular and stands out from all the other applicants, the chances of that happening are slim because most would prefer to go with experience.

  • How do I teach kids about dinosaurs and paleontology?

    Best answer: Teach them the basics. Their names, when then lived, what they ate, how big they were, etc.

    Don't worry about the names - they'll learn the pronunciations just fine.

  • My teacher puts me in the front of classroom, im anxious and shy. What do i do? (read detail and will understand)?

    Best answer: Why are you so worried about what other people think of your hair. It they do not like it, then tough for them. No one really cares. Besides you may be hearing whispers that are talking about other people. You need to see a counselor to help you worry less about what other people think. In the long run, what they... show more
    Best answer: Why are you so worried about what other people think of your hair. It they do not like it, then tough for them. No one really cares. Besides you may be hearing whispers that are talking about other people. You need to see a counselor to help you worry less about what other people think. In the long run, what they think about you or your hair means less than nothing.

    You teacher put you at the front because that is where they put the best students. The ones they feel have the best prospects in life. The ones that will use more of their education. They are doing you a favor I was a front row student all my school years. Even in high school and college where I could sit wherever I wanted, I would sit in the front row all the time. I had thin hair too. So what. If anyone commented on it, they got my "stare of death" and soon learned to ignore it.

  • Can a teacher take my phone for no reason?

    A teacher wanted to take my phone. But not because I wasn’t following the rules. The phone was away and I was working. He wanted to take it for a “social experiment”. He then said that “I can either give him the phone or he can write me up for insubordination.” Can he do this?

Plus even if this is happening where you live what's the big deal, teachers work their asses off for crap pay so if anyone should be able to do that it should be teachers.

  • How did this teacher not get fired?

    Best answer: Because of unions, it is almost impossible to fire a teacher. It is ridiculous, not only in your case but many don't teach and the students suffer.
