Private one-on-one tutoring company Xueba100.com appears to have collapsed, based on its sudden halt of most operations, leaving thousands of employees jobless and owed back wages, and students and parents seeking refunds for hours of prepaid tuition.

The apparent collapse comes just two months after another private tutoring company, Youwin Education, similarly crumbled, prompting hundreds of parents to turn up at the company's Beijing headquarters to demand their money back.
