Hello, I am new resident in Qatar and want to work in tutoring and private lessons for students. Do I need any special permissions to do this or is it legal?

Thank you for your answers. Someone told me that I should get a paper or in other terms a permission to work by my own then it will be ok to practice tutoring. Any idea about this??

The steps taken by Qatar to make tutoring illegal were not done without reason. There were many school teachers who had made part-time teaching as their "main source" of income, thus giving little attention to their "real" profession for which they had practically no time left.

However, it goes without saying that private tutoring is very beneficial to some students who are slow learners. Tutors provide face-to-face attention to a student and as such get to be more aware of a student's weaknesses which he helps in overcoming at home through tutoring. This helps the student in greater understanding and clearer concepts of the subject being taught. Students feel free to pose all sorts of questions to their tutors without hesitation which they cannot do so in class. Added to this, students may not just discuss school lessons with their tutors. Students nearing the age of maturity usually have a keen desire to know about modern trends, discuss social and political issues taking place in the world around. They can get guidance on these matters at home through their tutors. A good tutor really fills in the gaps that cannot be done at school.

Being "educated" is not limited to just earning degrees. It is the acquiring of knowledge through all means!

If somebody is happy with our support { for example , support in learning } and if she / he gives us some money by her / his choice / we did not demand, then it is not forbidden in my view. ......... This is my understanding.

Qatar is the only the country in the world where imparting of knowledge is considered to be an illegal act.

In all other countries, teachers (or tutors for that matter) carry a halo of respect both from students, parents and the society as they are looked upon as the beacon of light to the future generations.

Ma, Please understand it, suppose, you support the students without any fixed fees but still if they give you something in return then it is legal. Spreading the knowledge is fine, it is noble if you ask me. It is very respectable when you help teach others. Wish you joys !
