Become an online home tutor

Thank -you for your interest in joining us at, our sister company. We aim to work with highly qualified teachers/tutors/education professionals familiar with the UK education system and current qualifications and syllabi.

What is the process for becoming an online Home Tutor?

First fill register as a tutor and complete an online profile. Note tutors with personal photographs receive more ‘hits’.

When you are happy with your profile, save it and message us at admin to request and begin the approval of  your registration. For new tutors we will ask for supporting documentation (proof of qualifications and other supporting documents, CV  etc) and we’ll perform a series of background checks, collect references and recommendations, request DBS, or equivalent, where appropriate, and possibly invite you to online interview. If you pass all our background checks and agree to our terms and conditions we’ll start matching you up to students looking for private tuition in your subject area .

Once I’m registered with Online Home Tutors how much work will I get?

The amount of work you get depends on several factors:

  • What you teach, your tutoring experience and expertise and the level you tutor. Some subject areas are more in demand than others – for example core subjects like Maths, English and Sciences.
  • Your availability: international students, in different time zones, may also request the tuition. This can be good for those wanting to tutor during the day.
  • Your profile – profiles with pictures get more hits for example.
  • Recommendations

How much will I get paid?

The amount you get paid will depend on:

  • How many hours you tutor private students
  • Your hourly rate (see below*)

Why should I choose Online Home Tutors to tutor privately?

  • Once approved, each tutor has their own Tutor Room .
  • Upload, download, share files, videos. Real time video chat and interactive whiteboard. All you need is a webcam and internet connection …compatible with PC, Mac, iPad, tablets though bigger screens are recommended.
  • Fair fees that reflect your expertise and experience.
  • Automated collection and payment of fees.
  • No upfront costs – see below for ‘fees involved’
  • You don’t have to pay out for your own tutor advertising – we run campaigns nationally and internationally.
  • The support of a professional, reputable and caring company  – parents often chose us instead of an individual tutor as we can make personal recommendations.
  • Ongoing support. We are home and online tutors so we understand the needs and issues that arise when you work as a home tutor with private students.

Do you charge anything to register?

No, it’s free to register to tutor private students with 121 Home Tutors.

Are there any fees involved*?

Yes, but only when you accept a student and provide a lesson. In line with other providers of virtual classroom type platforms there is a platform fee totalling 25%. This covers the cost of providing the service. Please take this into consideration when setting your hourly rate.
