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

What does it mean...i take tuition
anonymous What does it mean...i take tuition

It seems to be an expression from Indian English.

It means "I have a private tutor" or "I take lessons from a private tutor".

From the Oxford Dictionary:

Tuition: teaching or instruction, especially of individual pupils or small groups.
‘private tuition in French’
‘At this time he earned a living giving private tuition and teaching in schools.’
