    But I would advise getting some relevant information on modern school systems, examination boards, NC assessment levels, SEN and basic ed theories (depending what you are proposing to teach etc). I know of some very good tutors, who, for whatever reason, did not complete the teacher training course, but still help their tutees a great deal. Equally, I know of some people who just decided that as they had a degree in a particular subject, then they might as well tutor...and were worse than useless. Of course some people are natural teachers, but most of us would agree that holding a degree in a subject does not necessarily mean you can tutor.
    As a parent paying for tuition, I would want to know that the tutor had experience of different techniques and learning strategies, and could plan individual lessons for my child, paying attention to his particular needs, and know what was needed to pass a particular exam at a particular level.
