I’m a 24 year old graduate. Should I quit my job as a private tutor (home-based, 40 students), earns me 6k and can develop into tuition ctr or find job that pays 3.5k? Money VS social life (since I work on nights and weekends, and I’m home-based)?

What are your thoughts?

You're the person that can only answer this question! (sadly)

Do you think you are enjoying the process?

Are you doing this for long term?

Is the reason starting this tutoring the same as the reason you are continuing it?

You can always find money else where, but your fulfilment and happiness, I guess, is the main point of living.

Hopefully this help.

And I myself want to be a private tutor. And that's quite an impressive feat at your age. I would like to learn from you on how you started and such.

Anyway, maybe take a breather and think about what you really wana do. Good luck on your future endeavours!

Hi and great job there!

To be able to manage that many students and have a rather steady income at 6k is no mean feat.

Do you already have an idea on how to develop it into a tuition centre and stand out amidst the many competitions?

If yes, I would say go for it and don't worry about finding a job that pays you 3.5k.

Truth is when working for others you may not always get what you want - promotions, pay raise, recognition etc.

You may even get nose-led by recruiters, peers and bosses so if you already have a good system that's paying you and with the potential to acheve something more in your life; go for it.

Working in a corporate doesn't mean it's 9-5. Most of the time OT comes into play so I'd rather develop it into something I can call my own instead if I were you.
