Children From Well-Off Families Have More Chances To Academic Tutoring

Bee Academic Tutoring prepares students for lifetime success. Studies in countries that have both public and private education systems have revealed that students who are enrolled in private schools have more opportunities to undertake tutoring than their counterparts in public schools. The research on 500 households also revealed that the wealthier the family and the higher qualifications they possess, the more that they are willing to spend for high tuition.

According to families that earned more than $6,000 a month, they spend about 30% or 50% more than less well-off families for the tuition of their children from preschool to secondary school. Parents who have graduated are more likely to spend up to four times more tuition than their counterparts who have only received primary education.

The research studies further state that the wealthier the parents and the more educated they are, the more advantages that their children have when it comes to access to various resources. This is the reason why children from private schools tend to receive academic tutoring. According to Associate Professor Jason Tan of National Institute of Education, parents with disposable income for private schooling have also demonstrated a willingness to do everything they could to ensure that their children gain quality education.

For example, in Singapore, families with a monthly household income of more than $6,000 pay a median amount of $200 each month for the tuition of their children in preschool. On the other hand, families that is earning $3,000 and below pay about $100 for their children in the same grade. Those in the higher income level have no qualms about spending $300 each month for tuition in primary school which is more than double the $125 spent by the less well-off.

Singaporean housewife Hui Choy Leng has the spending power to pay for more tuition. She spends about $1,000 for mathematics and Chinese tuition for a daughter in secondary 2. Her aim is to help her daughter pull up her grades and address the difficulties in understanding certain topics. She certainly does not mind paying for academic tutoring as long as she can help her children survive and gain quality education.

Canadians Choosing The Cottage And Cabin Lifestyle Dream

Luxury holiday cottages in Scotland as well as other real estate properties in the other parts of the UK and England are said to be in a boom. The status of the market of such is said to be the same case in the northern part of America, particularly Canada, as a recent poll showed that one in five Canadians are willing to cut down their expenditure in their main residence if this can give them the resources to purchase a cottage and cabin recreational property that most people only get to see in magazines.

According to the annual report by Canada’s recreational property market, due to a the low value of Canadian dollar, foreign buyers are attracted to purchase real estate properties in areas like Muskoka, Tofino, and Whistler.

Looking closely to details of the report, a large part of these buyers are said to be Canadians. According to Gurinder Sandhu, the vice president of ReMax – an American international real estate company, these Canadian buyers were the ones who took advantage of the business decline in the US property market in the year 2008, by selling off their US recreational properties and later on the taking advantage of low Canadian dollar value, purchasing their desired holiday cottages using their foreign gains. However, according to the real estate company, this is not the scenario across some of the provinces in Canada, as in Alberta and Newfoundland, where the income of the people are heavily restraint by the oil and gas industry. It is said that the market for real estate properties in these areas are stagnant.

Last June 8 to 11, in a poll where 1,538 Canadians were said to participate, more than half of the respondents of the poll said that they prefer to spend their long weekend at a cabin or a cottage than pick out a city to explore. Elton Ash, ReMax spokesman, said that this kind of lifestyle is the dream of many Canadians. In fact, owners of cottages make money out of their properties by renting them out either part or full-time, in order to save up the amount of money that is needed to purchase their dream property. Meanwhile, more than 40 percent said they would choose having the money to purchase this kind of recreational property over an out of the country summer vacation.
