Preparing to apply for a tutoring job

Tuesday, March 25th, 2014

We get lots of enquiries from people who’d like to tutor for 121 Home Tutors. We’re always here to offer help and advice – the first question we often hear is ‘what information will you need’. So here’s a quick breakdown of the information you’ll need to get together before you apply.

  1. We’ll need information on your work and educational background – we’ll be looking to see if you have the appropriate tutoring or work related experience (but don’t worry if you haven’t tutored before, that doesn’t mean we won’t take you on).
  2. We’ll want references from companies you have worked for or people you have tutored.
  3. We’ll be looking for evidence that you understand what tutoring involves and how you’d approach a tutoring job. We’ll also want to know you love your subject area and can pass that enthusiasm onto a student.
  4. We’ll need proof of ID and evidence that you can work in the UK, plus a valid DBS (or be willing to apply for a DBS – previously known as a CRB).
  5. Finally we’ll need to know where you live and where you’d be willing to travel to (we cover Manchester and Cheshire).

So that’s our top tips. Still interested in tutoring – you can find out more information and apply on our website.


How to become a private tutor

Wednesday, May 1st, 2013

At 121 Home Tutors we regularly get calls and emails from people who are interested in becoming private tutors. Some of these people are already teachers, have teaching qualifications, have tutored in the past or have some sort of educational experience. However,  many have no teaching experience or qualifications at all and want to take the first step into tutoring. Here’s a quick guide for those who want to start a new career in tutoring.

  • You’ll need a specialist subject and usually at one level above those you are teaching. So if you want to teach A Level Maths you’ll need a degree in Maths (or a closely related subject).
  • If you only have industry experience you may still work as a tutor but it’s a good idea to try and get some work experience in tutoring or training.  One way is to offer to volunteer in schools.
  • You generally don’t need a PGCE (teaching qualification) to tutor but it may be worth exploring further qualifications to enhance your CV.
  • In general most tutors are self-employed so be prepared to find your own work and to have ups and downs in your income. Tutoring often happens in evenings and at weekends to fit around school times.
  • Many tutors work in their students’ homes so you’ll need transport and may have to pass a DBS (previously known as a CRB) check.
  • Depending on what you are teaching you will need to be aware of the syllabus for the subject you are teaching and any educational changes that impact on your tutoring.
  • Remember when you apply for a tutoring post to put together a well-composed CV and letter and proofread it very carefully.
