Tution Students

Students of elite schools in Kolkata squeeze into a little room waiting for their Chemistry pivate tutor. There were 22 students attending this particular session. Each student pays 600 Rupees per month. A popular tutor could run up to four such sessions per day. We heard of tutors who find this so profitable, that they have quit their day job as teachers. Most students select their tutors based on word-of-mouth reputation. This tutor arrived 10 minutes late and did not have time to talk to us 😦
