I have a first class honours degree in Spanish (Hispanic Studies) and am looking into private tutoring in Spanish as a means to earn some extra income, to keep my language skills up-to-date and to see if language teaching is an area I may wish to develop a career in. Where I'm new to private tuition I'd like to start tutoring at GCSE level rather than A-level. I'm not a qualified teacher, but I have experience teaching English in Spain and participated in the Student Associates Scheme as part of my University studies. I live in Maidstone in Kent and would be looking to start tutoring in the surrounding area. With the above in mind, I'm looking for advice on the following: 1) How long private tuition lessons usually last - is it an hour? 2) How best to advertise myself as a tutor (in terms of what parents and pupils are looking for). 3) Based on my language level, experience and location how much I can realistically charge per hour. 4) The best sources to find out more information about the current GCSE curriculum and syllabi for different exam boards. Thank you.
