    hhmmm. And you're proud of it? There's something wrong with you.
    You're only doing this to seek attention. Me me me me me
    Proud of it. No, who will? It is not something good to boast with --turning down a request from your boyfriend to help his little sister. Something wrong with me? Ok, you may say so. I am just not a saint or a very kind people, I would say.

    Seek attention? Maybe I can't tell. Just when you are unhappy or upset and don't know what to do, you would like to voice out and see any good advices you may get.

    'me me me.....' don't mock. it does not seem to be very polite to do so. Can you claim that you are not self-centred or think of yourself at all?

    You should really really learn to proofread before you go off to tutor writing.

    *facepalm* She's not English. She's not tutoring in English. Presumably the standard of her English does not impede her ability to tutor in I-think-Chinese :rolleyes:

    I just want to put an end here. I don't want to keep checking up the forum.

    Finally, I talked everything to my boyfriend. I am not interested to tutor his sister and said sorry to him. He said nevermind and it was not a big deal. I asked if that will hurt our relationship. He said no and he asked me to promise that not to think about it anymore. He said it will hurt really hurt our relationship if i do not like to do that but force myself to do so.

    I do not know if this will hurt our relationship in long term.

    But at least, i stay true to my feelings and be myself at this moment.

    Tbh I don't think it was necessary from the quality of the OP and even the next couple of posts to explicitly say that she wasn't English.

    Is it irrelevant to cite the fact that she is uninteresting to me?
    No. If i am going out with somebody it is because I am interested in them, not their family.

    If you don't want to do it, don't do it. No doubt after the initial four teaching sessions, you wil be expected to teach for another four sessions.

    Be assertive and say no.

    OP - as your bf has said, it won't hurt your relationship unless you let it. Just forget about it

    You too! I do like to tutor somebody in fact. It's so happy to find the solutions with the learners together like Maths and Gegoraphy. What I don't like is teaching language. It is difficult to see people's improvements. Second, I am not talented on language neither in English nor my own mother tounge. :p:
