Possible to do private tutoring??

Discussion in 'Private tutors' started by dandyr, Jun 24, 2011.

  1. Hiya,
    I have a degree in Primary and Secondary Science Education. Is it at all possible for me to go into private tutoring? How would I go about doing this?
    Many Thanks

    No reason why not. The main demand is for english and maths at primary level at least. You have a choice really of registering with an agency or just trying to get your own clients.
     
  3. okies thanks for this, I thought tutors needed QTS to do tutoring; this is something I dont have at the moment.

    No it's an unregulated industry. QTS and having teaching experience certainly helps in that you know the curriculum and understand levels.
    Getting started - a bit of advertising in a local paper got me started, Then word of mouth which has been my main source.

    Hi Dandyr,
    I tutor full time and I do well from tutoring. I don't have QTS.
    If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
    I am setting up a website if you are interested in registering in the near future.

    There are quite a few out there but I have never used them. Signed up to one but realised that once they took their cut it was barely worth doing the work.If I remember rightly they wanted to charge £4.95 for every session and they had bands of tuition fees meaning that i could charge up to about £20. So, a fiver for them, some for the tax man and petrol and materials costs would have left me with about a tenner a session.
