Tuition centre (Malay: Pusat Tuisyen) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Tuition centre (Malay: Pusat Tuisyen) is a special term for private educational institutions; they are especially abundant and ubiquitous in Malaysia, India, The Middle East and Singapore. In Indonesia, they are known as Bimbingan Belajar or bimbel in short. Many school teachers earn their supplementary income through tuition centres and agencies. Some teachers 'advertise' their tuition classes and coach those who attend their classes on how to tackle examination questions. Their focus is primarily rote learning. Some teachers earn up to RM10,000 or S$8,000 by giving private tuition. Notwithstanding, there is a huge, and still growing trend, among local parents who send their kids to tuition. Given the immense academic competition attributed to foreign scholars and the proliferating private-tuition trend some parents feel that they have little choice but to engage tuition centres or opt for home tuition.[1][2][3][4]
