FAQ

Answers to the most common questions asked by prospective tutors

I have never been a tutor, what do I need to know?

You need to know your subject and demonstrate your passion for helping others to know it too. Tutoring doesn’t just earn you money, it keeps you engaged with your subject and helping students to learn will revitalise your own knowledge. The most important skill you need is to empathise with your students and understand where they are on their learning journey.

What subjects are in demand?

Among children sitting exams the most popular subjects are Maths, English and the science subjects. Children in primary education often need help to improve reading and writing and a tutoring assignment can last a long time. Specialist subjects can be in demand where teachers are not available locally.
However, there is demand for a whole range of subjects including those not sitting exams to adults at work. Whatever your career you will find students who want to learn more about what it takes to be a doctor, project manager, accountant etc and the best people to help them are those who are working in those fields. 

Do I need to be a teacher?

No. A teaching qualification is useful but a passion for your subject is most important. Tutors of children work alongside the education system and help their students understand what their teachers are teaching them.
