Abstract

This study attempted to analyze the unique personality traits and success factors,
as observed within the context of a highly successful tutee and tutor process, in the
shadow education (SE, henceforth) industry of premier international schooling. Throughout
the SE training, these two parties, a tutor and a tutee, interacted with each other by using
English, where their linguistic competencies excelled across various linguistic registers. The
two corpora retrieved from both parties were calibrated and run in order to provide an
overview of data distribution. The filtered-out data underwent content analysis, which
manifested many of the underlying meanings and implications reflecting from the word
use, revealing how SE had conceptualized worldview and shaped their personality. In a
global context, based on a semi-structured interview, there were two findings. First, the
practical command of English functioned as linguistic capital that allowed users to be
relevant in the global and world-class market labor networks. This linguistic capital
emphasized (1) general English register (GER) and (2) academic English register (AER).
However, linguistic diversity and capital, which contributed to a paradox, were what the
SE parties had already acknowledged. Secondly, given GRIT’s personality traits (Duckwert,
2016), these people revealed many qualities that corresponded to the GRIT attributes:
passion, perseverance, and excellence. The lesson learned from this study of material, retrieved within the premier SE context, might make us more aware of the international/
global market labor competitiveness as global citizens.
