    Hi guys,
    Long story short I have some students who I can no longer tutor due to personal circumstances.
    If you dm me your links to your Facebook page/ website I will pass them on to my students.
    All year 8 - Year 11. Based in the North-west
    Maths and/or English. I have been teaching most of them online

    Hi, I wanted to start online tuition too but I have a few questions. Could you please tell me the platform you use e.g. Zoom or something else? Also, do you tutor privately or via some other tuition company? I just want to know what precautions I would need to take if I started tutoring online in terms of writing out a contract or expecting there to be a parent/guardian present during lessons etc.
    Thanks

    Geenius, I hope you don't mind, but if you take a look at some of the many posts that have been posted on here over the last few days and months, it will give you an idea of things to do regarding how to set up as a tutor, what online platform people tend to use the most and whether they use a tutoring company. A lot of people (including myself) that respond to 'newbies' who ask questions have been asked this same question often, so that maybe perhaps why people are remaining quiet/or unresponsive to your query. I hope this helps. :)

    Whatever the personal circumstances are, I hope they are resolved soon and you are able to move forward with whatever plans you had.

    Best wishes

    Thank you. I did find it odd to have no replies....makes sense now.....I did look around the forums but couldn't really find the answers, so posted the question. I will look again. Thank you for taking the time to respond.

    I used to always try to offer advice. Things have changed so much since March that I don't really feel able to offer useful advice any more.

    One extra question though that I don't believe has been asked....if you are part of a union, do you need to contact them and let them know that you intend to do tuition? Is tuition even covered by them?

    As you would be self employed I don't think there would be any point being in a union. It's not something I've ever considered

    Is a rusty A level in Maths good enough to tutor KS3 and GCSE Maths? Do most maths tutors have a degree in Maths?

    It depends how confident you are in the subject. You shouldn’t teach anything you’re not confident in. if you feel you are capable then there is no reason why you can’t tutor Ks3 and GCSE.

    Download some GCSE maths papers and see if you can do all the questions easily. If you can't you shouldn't be tutoring it. Some tutors only do the foundation GCSE maths now as they find the new harder higher GCSE too difficult. Don't take money from people for tutoring something you're not confident in yourself.

    Hi
    Have you filled all these now. I expect you have but thought it worth a try. Unfortunately I am unable to send direct messages.
