English tutors in China — well-paid, not always qualified

from UPI (commentary)

China: Beatrice Boulet, a 20-year-old French exchange student at Peking University, was sitting outside the foreign students' dormitory when a Chinese woman approached her. The woman asked whether Boulet could teach her 10-year-old daughter English for $33 per hour. "I told her that I am from France and have never taught English, but she didn't think it was important. I think she talked to me only because I am a foreigner," Boulet said. Some families in China spend small fortunes on foreign English teachers for their children, but sometimes parents mistakenly think any foreigner — no matter what their level of English-language skills — can provide quality education in English. Education experts say this has led to cases of unqualified, unmotivated and sometimes even non-English-speaking foreigners tutoring Chinese kids. more
