Individual tutors targeted in China's education crackdown

Private after-school instruction reels amid push to reduce academic burden

Authorities in China have increased scrutiny of after-school tuition offered by individuals, as tutoring service providers change tactics amid high demand and a government crackdown on private education enterprises.

During a recent inspection, one individual and six institutions were punished for offering unlicensed after-school tutoring that violated government regulations, the Beijing Municipal Education Commission said in a statement on Monday. The individual, surnamed Gong, was found "organizing unauthorized tutoring on curriculum subjects" in a cafe in the city's Pinggu district, the statement said.
