Tuition job - I'm so pissed. I need somewhere to rant.

Being a post-As student, I decided to take up tuitioning as a means to earn money. I took up a $20/hr job for 2 primary 4 school kids who stayed in Bedok. Having no experience, I did not mind the super low pay (Which all my friends said was not worth it). After receiving the job and contacting the parent, the father told me his sob story. How his wife passed away and so he is really busy and he needs me to help his kids blah blah blah. This made me pity him and wanted to do my best. I originally only signed up to teach a single subject which is why I didn't mind the low pay for twins. But when I arrived, he insisted I taught them science as well. I'm not a science person, that much I can admit. But I did take science in JC so I tried. He bought assignment books WITHOUT ANSWER SHEETS (The previous tutor took them). If that were to be maths, I would not mind. But it was science and I wasn't confident in science. So I perservered. On the 3rd tuition day, without telling me, he just said that I only need to teach 1 hour because his other kid was not here. I was obviously taken aback, I was in the midst of paying the coordinator fee for tuition which was half of 4 tuition job pay. Thank god the coordinator allowed me to pay half of the 1 hr tuition job and not taking it as a full hour. Here comes the part, I was teaching his son on the 6th tuition lesson because his daughter was having a headache. So she missed 1 hr of tuition lesson. During this period, I was trying to get the son to understand how he should do the model question. When his daughter came out, I asked her to do the questions that her brother did. (Her brother is slower than her in learning) But she just sat there and slacked a bit. But I was still in the midst of teaching her brother. She continued to play and disturbed her brother. So I had to periodically tell her to do that question. I was also teaching them how to present their answers neatly for problem sums. After awhile, she did her question. So I asked her how she did it and she could tell me so I moved on and asked her brother to explain but he couldnt. She then insisted I teach them science but her brother was still confused so I said " Wait. " to her. My mistake I suppose. The lesson ended soon after without me teaching science because her brother didn't explain that much. I did move on anothet question. Nevermind, the next lesson I arrived. The father accused me of bullying his daughter?! He said I made her wait while I taught her brother. I was taken aback, what? Ok this is how you want to play. He then proceeded to tell me how she wanted to learn science but I wouldn't let her. Furious, I told him I was hired to only teach maths. Science was never on the menu. (Honestly, it was because I pitied the father abit which was why I didn't mind) He did not like my teaching method (Which was exposing them to other school papers for maths) and wanted me to use the textbook. Then he said he will cut my pay for that day. I said " But I taught your son. I still taught YOUR CHILD. " Then he said half. If only I had a recording of that day. Ugh. Anyway, following up, he abruptly cancelled tuition only 3 hrs before. Nevermind. Today was the last straw, he did not inform me AT ALL that his children will be coming home at 4pm and I came at the usual 3.30pm. I was absolutely furious (I am always early or on time). I called him and he acted oblivious. Pissed off, I said I wanted to quit. HE WANTED TO DRAG PAYMENT TO ANOTHER DAY. I WAS ALREADY AT THE FOOT OF HIS CONDO AND I WAS STRANDED. Finally he came down, not before making me wait almost 10 minutes. It's ok. Then he did not pay me AT ALL FOR THAT DAY I TAUGHT HIS SON AND HIS DAUGHTER WAS SLEEPING. WHAT KIND OF PERSON IS THIS?! I am really pissed off now and I really want to complain about him and warn other potential tuition candidates about him. Please be warned if you want to face unreasonable scenerios, then accept his job. He also scolds his kids stupid and he also boasted to me that his kid landed into hospital because the teacher found bruises made by HIM (THE PARENT) and he said he made the teacher pay for the hospital fee. What kind of animal is this. He also boasted he had a doctor son and a businessman son. But he says they are unfillial. I can see why, maybe if he learnt to speak nicely and learnt to respect people. His children will learn to love him. Thank you if you read this super long rant!
