Seems you can't tutor stupid out of the kid, or the family. And it IS the teachers problem. It's their job to teach the kid, not offer trick questions like "What is your name?" Side note,, I wonder if the teachers check would cash if she FORGOT to sign the back of the check, or would the bank give her another chance to sign her check.
93, True, but if there is more than one person who did the same thing and the tests are therefore indistinguishable then both students should fail. That also applies to if there is more than one student whose paper has not been graded, because you may give the grade to the wrong student. It's not like its always easy to just work out whose test it is...doubly so for tests that are taken on an entire year, school or topic level and are not graded by the same teacher.
That's really dumb. The teacher could've easily looked at which students took the test but couldn't find their paper. Then find out who's test it was.
There is no such thing as a "short night" for a good teacher. Our day doesn't end at 4 like it does for the students. Many of us continue working (grading papers, making lesson plans) most of the night. Oh and just FYI, it may only take 3 minutes to grade one paper, but multiple that by 160.
Hard lessons require hard consequences. The lesson? You can't teach a stupid kid, because as you can see by his parents behavior, it's genetic.
Mime, you're funny. As a former tutor, I can say you're not too far off with your thinking (although sometimes mutations do happen during fetal development to prevent complete degradation of human intelligence). Skitz- wow I find your pic so offensive. Wut the fuck would Jesus be doing with a t-Rex??
You explained to the parents that it was their child's fault right? If you did and they still fired you I say good ridence they seem ignorant.
As a tutor you're suppose to cover all bases. Including writing your name in the top corner.
