    I've been considering this option recently. I have big travel plans and need to save save save! I'm a little bit apprehensive about not getting a kid through the test when parents are paying £20 or more an hour!
  2. It may not help too much, but i am a musician, so get some extra pennies playing in orchestras for musicals that are staged in the local theatres. Totally different to work & great fun too.
    A few years ago i worked on the 'relief' team at a residential school/home for pupils with ASD (sorry, ASC now!). Was a fabulous job, and the money wasnt too bad at all. As part of it i recieved loads of training in the area which was really useful in the classroom too.

  3. I tutor - this year with supply being diabolical it's kept my grocery shopping going on more than one occasion. I charge between £15 and £20 an hour and do no more than 2 kids an evening with a max of about 4 kids before the planning gets to be more than I want to be taking on.

    You can only do your best. If you're tutoring a child and you know there's no way they'll get through you have to be honest with the parents. I know this happened with a child in my class a couple of years ago and the parents kept the tutor to try and bring the child's maths ability up, but knew she wasn't going to ever pass the 11+. As long as you are honest the parents can't complain!
