I Have A Future As A Tutor In Hong Kong

Sex appeal has become a hot selling point, just as important as teaching ability and knowledge, in Hong Kong's hypercompetitive world of cram schools — or "bou zap se" in the local Cantonese dialect...

"When our rivals are equally good at predicting the exam questions, we need a new ground to outrun them," Ng said. "And that is the tutor's appearance."

I don't think I'd be comfortable being marketed as a sex object, as nothing more than a piece of meat. That's why this tutoring gig appeals to me so much--I'd be marketed as a smart piece of meat.
