maybe those who can speak English very well are already in workforce because they didn't have much difficulties in getting a job after finishing their undergrad?(u know most tutors are postgrad or PHD qualified.) well there might be exceptions but seeing how Master of accounting and whatnot is mostly taken by international students so u get the picture here.tutors with such ridiculous accents that make you almost want to cry.
It depends on the course convener. Any work related to tutorials doesn't have to be paid. Some conveners pay their tutors for marking tute papers, although most don't...The money is actually quite good, but:
Then there's the marking of 50+ assignments on the same bloody topic, which you aren't paid for (as it is covered in the hourly tutoring rate).
Completely depends on the department and individual conveners...What are the requirements for becoming a tutor anyway? I thought most of them were doing post-graduate studies.
not that this is super relevant, but yeah i had an honours student as a tutor last year... it really surprised me when at the end of the sem he told us he was working on his honours thesis... but that was for a REALLY basic introductory math unit so it worked quite well.In the natural sciences I've heard of honours students tutoring, so it's really whatever is appropriate. I guess in BusEc it's common for Master's students to tutor as well because that's so common? *shrug*
