有缘人











近来,补习中心如雨后春笋,越开越多,差不多每一个住家花园都有一间补习中心,这还不包刮住家开设的私人补习。一个教师离开岗位越久也就越不吃香,这是现实!因此,从今年起,我索性去补习中心兼职。刚好由一位前同事开设的中心要请理科老师,他就把我当成一个宝般拉了过去!本来我答应他只教上午班的,怎么知道他也要我教晚班的。我早就听说晚班的学生很少( 因为通通去上那个补习王的班了),可是他太看重我了,一直求我帮个忙,盛情难却,帮人就帮到底,只好答应他。
第一晚去上课,学生只有小猫三两只,看了心都冷了,牺牲了两个小时的时间才教那几只小猫!这还不用紧,最恐怖的还是那些《一见就发财》的东东!由于他的班级太多了,自己的店屋已不够用,因此另租一间店来充当教室。天呀,好租不租,租了一间和《一见就发财》的隔邻店,每当经过那儿,心理有点发毛!我下定决心不补晚班咯,与其浪费时间,不如在家写博,阅报和唱歌?正当我要向他辞掉晚班的当儿,一个印裔学生( 早班的)跑前来告诉我: “ Thank you, teacher, I like your teaching very much." 哇。混吃这么久,从来没有被人赞扬过(唱我衰的就有!),而且还是出自异族学生,你说我还好意思推掉这重任吗?
有人说,华人是最不懂感恩的人,也不是没有根据的!你以为这些人好教啊?找上门来的学子中(清一色是华人),只有30 %是认真求学的,其余的都是无心向学,上课时不听老师讲课,玩手机,喧哗,不做功课,不然就是大吃大喝的,我真的已受不了!我不清楚到底有多少父母知道他们的孩子在补习时的情况!我一直都在认为这些鬼仔糟蹋了我的“才华”( 一笑 ! )就是因为酱,我想换一换环境,今年才下定决心去教异族的。我也想打进“上门补习” ( 一对一 )的市场。上他们的家去补,学生不敢在家长面前作怪,自己也较轻松!
话说回头,到了第二个晚上,学生竟然增加了八位。那同事可能担心我不补,就马上过来拍马屁,说道: “有许多家长不知道是你教,如果知道的话,会有更多人过来! ”哈哈!
其实,该放下的我都已放下,只有对学生的管教还很执着,今年起我也一齐放下了,从今以后,只教书不教人,让自己活得轻松点,毕竟教书比较人容易!不过,在放下的当儿,我还是不忘给自己留点尊严,那就是: 当我进班时,教他们说声“早安/晚安”, 授课过后,教她们说声“谢谢”,那管他们有时喊得像鬼叫!
最后,让我自恋一下: 能够和我结缘的人多少都要有点福气的呀,娃哈哈!

一片云,拜读了您的这一篇文章身同感受。。虽然我并没有直接管理我们的教育中心,不过可知我的妻子蛮受气的。您的朋友能够请到您当他的老师真的有福气啊!就连现在我们要聘请STPM离校生都很难哪。这个行业越来越难做了!

Yi Pian Yun said...

KM"s Corner,
现在做什么都是难,如果要认真起来,只有自找苦吃,因此我决定放下!父母要求的是成绩,但是他们的孩子不自爱,怎办?如果不做,日子怎么过?

cindy said...

ypy, 开工啦?多少没问题,只要学生肯学,你就会开心的了。。。C.Kruing 还有教吗?

Yi Pian Yun said...

Cindy,
对,我现在只教肯学的,教了自觉有成就感! 已不去C.K.了, 在那里没几个好东西, 每当教了回来,恶梦连连!今年帮Tiang教5 班,自己也有三班,还不够吗?

验光师 said...

请问“一见发财”是什么店??

老师,教得开心就好了!

Yi Pian Yun said...

验光师,
对,最要紧要开心!
“一见发财” = “观财” 呀,娃哈哈!问你geli 吗咯!哈哈!

cindy said...

ypy, 对咯,山高路远,赶来赶去,不是很安全。Tiang?不是更好?又近又方便。。。

你的英文比我好,快帮岁月改改他的英文吧,他很有心学呢,多教教他吧。我的broken English 怕误导他。。。呵呵。。。

对了,我还有4次SUB的耳烛,几时你去pedicure? 可以一起去。。。

cindy said...

ypy, 你的Cbox怎么不见了?被人偷了吗?

Jessie said...

换了新环境就得从头做起咯,不过真金不怕红炉火,迟些教出名堂来,学生就滚滚而来了。

C.K.是上次你说靠近Pantai那边的吗?

Yi Pian Yun said...

Cindy,
chatbox 还在呀! 怎么你那边没有 ?看你几时有空不是一起去咯!要等周末才行!

Yi Pian Yun said...

Jessie,
对,CK 是靠近Pantai那边。本来我要打广告收“一对一”的学生,现在已经有人找我了,省了广告费!那你耐心地等我做数理名师咯,哈哈!

cindy said...

YPY,好的,得空再说吧。。。

Ting said...

听说A中有位L老师,N中有位T老师,补习补到发达,是吗?

Yi Pian Yun said...

Ting,
做么酱久都不见你进来?对呀,你也那么清楚?这些年轻人不趁年轻时捞他一笔都傻!还有一个M中的O老师,D中的副校长,百万富翁了咯!你吹咩?哈哈!

Ting said...

只要趁年轻捞到一笔,以后的人生就不用愁了。
不过一定要长命呀!

Loo said...

“有许多家长不知道是你教,如果知道的话,会有更多人过来!”
哇,你可真棒,不是咩?

Yi Pian Yun said...

Ting,
说的也是,一个人吃多少好像已经注定了的,看样子还是像我酱 : kais pagi makan pagi, kais petang makan petang1 较划算?哈哈!

Yi Pian Yun said...

Loo,
那不是我说的,是老板说的!谁不知道我是个恶婆娘?有大把人唱我衰的,他们凭孩子们的意见把我看衰,不过还是有人赏识我的!

Kenneth said...

Kids today are too mollycoddled. The so-called 'elite' parents plan every single thing for them!

Don't you think that these parents are either 'kiasu' or 'kiasi'?

I wonder if this particular category of parents did well in their studies when they were children, haha!

Most probably, they were actually the 'dalok' group!

Yi Pian Yun said...

Kenneth,
Why this time seldom come in ?Miss u le,I know u are the one who always give me support,thanks lots!Today is weekend,and is also my gossip day,Ijust came back from the gossip centre, guess what i gossip ?what else other than these "elite" group of dalok ppl ?You are right, these are all kiasu n kiasi type of human, I feel that they are all idiots !I can assure u that they were not good in their studies when they were young, that is why they put all hopes on their children to do well in studies!
All the gossipers enjoyed so much of my gossip,hahaha! In front of students and bloggers, I behave like a teacher, but with these gossipers, myself so free to express my feeling, especially when I come to comment these kiasu ppl, i never give them face as how they passed bad remarks abt me at my back! I can use macam2 words to descibe them, including using bahasa kasar! If I no 2, nobody dare to declare as no one,LOl! I only tell u alone, u dun go tell ppl,ok ?hahaha!Have a nice day !

Kenneth said...

Haha, you only tell me, tell no one else?
Eh, eh, that's impossible! So many of your fans are reading your blog, you know??

Never mind, the gossips can well be shared here. Yes, you are perfectly right. These 'elite' parents were once a 'dalok group' in schools. They now expect their children to be angels and geniuses! But, is it possible? I doubt.

Like what people always said, 'dalok parents' bring up 'dalok children' loh! (Haha, I have learned a few Hockchew words!)

Just because they are now blessed with abundant vitamin M, they can talk big. Money makes the world spin! Only God knows how they actually feel in their heart!

Have a nice evening!

Yi Pian Yun said...

Kenneth,
Aiya, I type the comment in English, so it is meant specially 4 u la, if my fans wanna read , let them read lo, after all there is no bahasa kasar here, no worry !I was brought up in a kampong, whatever the kampong kids do, i will also do la.I can only be myself whenever with these kg. folk, of course including using bahasa kasar to scold these merciless ppl! My husband used to buy me Listerine to wash my dirty mouth( as he said ),hahaha!Life is short, what 4 acting like a saint and hypocrite ? Being my ownself is the best !Please do visit me often,ok ?

Jessie said...

科学老师,想请教你一个问题。孩子问我,人睡觉时需要energy吗?我答他需要,因为睡觉时我们还会呼吸、器官也在操作。他的中学老师说不需要,还取笑他,然后全班一阵爆笑。究竟是谁错,谁对?

Yi Pian Yun said...

哈哈哈! 真是冤枉了他被人家笑!你告诉他,只要活着就有respiration。
The equation 4 respiration is :

glucose + oxygen ---- carbon dioxide + water + energy .
The energy is meant 4 warmth, all the activities like growth, breathing mechanism etc.

从以上, 你认为要energy 吗咯?我看他误会了,以为energy 只是用在physical activities 上! 请问是不是姓马的?希望我没有误导你,这是课本没有提到的问题!

Ching said...

Energy is a very general term. To be more accurate, energy should be categorized into various forms. I think the teacher referred to mechanical/kinetic energy, which means when there is no movement there is no energy produced.

This is just very brief account. "Varous forms of ENERGY" itself is a topic and "Heat energy" is another topic of its own.

Ching said...

Even a stationary object (not only living things) will have potential energy due to its position or condition.

cindy said...

原来在讨论energy。。。还劳动Ching 出马。。。教scence的毕竟不是省油的灯。
Jessie,叫儿子不要气馁。。。
台湾也有energy乐团呢。。。

Yi Pian Yun said...

Jessie,
Ching 讲得很清楚,不知道她指的是什么energy。我也是认为她指的是kinetic energy,睡觉时没有动就不需要energy! Energy can be categorized into various forms like : heat energy, sound energy, electrical energy, chemical energy, potential energy, kinetic energy, nuclear energy,light energy.
Ching,
谢谢你提供的资料,你 opt出来真是学生们的损失!
Cindy,谢谢你也来凑热闹!

Ching said...

Back to Jessie’s comment:

人体里的 chemical energy 是在被利用而转换为其它的energy.

Whether sleeping or awake, our body is converting chemical energy from food to other forms of energy, one of which is heat energy, and others like what Jessie and Ypy mentioned, for organs in the body to work. Whenever there is work done, energy is involved.

Conclusion: 人睡觉时当然也需要energy 啦!LOL。

#We eat to live#

走过岁月 said...

老师,我又来看你了,我把以前读的还给老师了。

Yi Pian Yun said...

Ching,
I love to eat (贪吃 ), I think I live to eat lah, haha!
岁月,
是咯, 学多学生都说以前所读的都还给老师了,真是的!

Ching said...

We eat to live. Of course we can choose what we like to eat. But my choice is limited now.

Jessie said...

YPY & Ching,
谢谢你们详细的讲解,会叫孩子来看你们的解释。我也怀疑孩子误解了老师的问题,不然这样的老师可误人子弟咯。。。

Jack said...

学生和你结缘绝对没错。
你跟金钱结缘也没有错。

Yi Pian Yun said...

Jack,
做什么都要讲缘的啊!正如你和我,有着母子缘一样,哈哈!

Jack said...

妈。。。。。。。呀!

Yi Pian Yun said...

Jack,
不要做我儿咩?叫得那么恐怖!

cindy said...

很好,YPY 和 Jack,能在网络相识也是一种缘分,我们应该珍惜。。。记住彼此的好,忘掉彼此的不好,皆大欢喜。。。

Jack的这张照片很好看,蛮忠实可爱的,我喜欢。。。

Jessie said...

最近你也很少update部落格,照理不会忙着做年饼咯,是大扫除?
再忙也过来我家领个奖,吃个饼哦!

Yi Pian Yun said...

Jessie,
你也太看重我了,我是不做年饼的,大扫除?我向来被宠坏了,有人帮我打扫了!最近比较懒惰了,因此没兴趣来update我的blog!
