How to make money as a tutor – teach yourself to earn more.
The Champion Idea
Students learn, you earn – make money from teaching anything from school children that need support with GCSEs and A-Levels to degrees, languages and beyond.
Tutoring students is a big multi-billion pound money making machine nowadays. For example it is estimated 1 in 4 – yes 1 in 4 – UK school children now use private tutors.
Earnometer (out of 4):
Average of £10-£30+ per hour.
Depending on your qualifications, location and track record.
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.
