Hi,
When a tutor says....I take tuitions....is this statement correct ?
Or it should be...........I give tuitions.....

First of all, 'tuition' is a noncountable noun, so we don't say 'tuitions'.

I wouldn''t say it's wrong for a tutor to say 'I give tuition' or for a pupil to say 'I take tuition'. However, it's not very idiomatic in my experience.
As a tutor, this is what I normally say and hear.
Tutor: "I tutor people" or "I do tutoring".
Pupil: "I have a tutor" or "I have tutoring".

Best wishes, Clive
