Key Requirements


  • A good specialist knowledge in a subject or subjects – from Maths to Music from English to French…whatever you are good at you can teach.

  • A friendly, patient, enthusiastic, personable attitude and a good communicator.

  • Educational qualifications are not a must but the more you have, the more you can earn.

  • Again a DBS check (criminal record check) is not a must but can help you win work. You can apply through an employer, recruiter, agency or other recognised body.

  • Think about insurance such as a Public Liability Insurance or a Professional Indemnity policy.

  • Market, market, market yourself – don’t be shy – make any qualifications, experience, skills, knowledge – really stand out. There is money to be made but its a competitive industry.

  • Research as many local tutoring agencies in your area – and apply to a number of them as it can take a bit of time to get a job.

  • Market to local schools, educational establishments, friends, family and your wider network.

  • Join an organisation that teaches groups of students after school or during the holidays.

  • Try online tutoring from your own home.

  • Research and apply to local language schools if you have language skills and qualifications.
