Hi Everyone - I am new to this forum and to the business of Private Tutoring I am an primary KS1/KS2 NQT just qualified in July, and have been unable to secure a full time class teacher position in September which is a bummer. So now I have resulted to working in retail on the weekends and doing private tutoring on weekdays. I have decided to charge a summer discount rate of £10 per hour, I know its peanuts right..... but the area i live in I can't see anyone paying more than that per hour. This is my second week and I already have 10 children and 1 child is doing 2 hours a week, so business is booming. which is fantastic. However I am always so lost as to what to do with them. The first thing I do is look at the children's end of year school reports and see what the class teacher has recommended for next steps to progress. However some reports do not have next steps so I am lost on where to start. I have decided to only focus on the core subjects Maths, and English ( Reading, writing and spelling). What can I do with the children, how can I support children if I do not know what they are capable of already or not capable of? Any advice at all would be much appreciated. Thanks .
