HÀ NỘI — An English tutor in Hà Nội was fined for using inappropriate terms to address her student and running tuition classes without a licence.
Inspectors from the Hà Nội Department of Education and Training on Tuesday imposed VNĐ5 million (US$220) on Nguyễn Thị Kim Tuyến and VNĐ20 million ($880) on the MST English Training Institute where she was director.
The department also decided to dissolve all three English training centres under MST. Tuyến will be barred from all teaching activities, it said.
The decision comes after the department’s inspection of MST at its headquarters on May 6-7.
It concluded that the three MST English training centres, located in narrow alleys, were not registered for foreign language training.
Last week, a video of Tuyến quarrelling loudly with one of her students was posted on social media, garnering a lot of attention.
The video showed Tuyến shouting and using derogatory terms such as “pig brain” and “pig face” to address the student as he refused to pay a fine of VNĐ100,000 ($4.4) for not doing his homework.
Tuyến could present only a graduate degree in accounting when requested by inspectors on Monday. — VNS
