A student never goes for private tuition to the teacher who does not teach properly in the classroom. Another complaint against the teachers is that most of them are under-qualified. How can we expect talented and brilliant people in the teaching profession if they are not provided with attractive salary and social status? Not only that a teacher should not live a life less standard than his/her neighboring and equivalent colleagues serving in other departments. My friend who is a doctor, is now an owner of a multistory building, where as I have no ability to buy a hut in a town. That’s because I am a teacher.
To sum up, it may be mentioned here that private coaching/tuition is not at all a matter of pleasure. No teacher will involve himself in this if he is provided with reasonable salary and status.
