    I've been looking at some positions as a 1-1 tutor through an agency. The roles generally seem to be for a daily 3hr session with the same pupil. Just wondering if anyone has any experience of doing this and any advice? It seems like a long time to spend 1-1 every day so I'm wondering how I might structure sessions etc. Any advice would be appreciated!

    I think these sort of tutoring sessions are a one off and quite rare in my experience. I don't think it is something that you can rely on regularly. As a subject specialist I suggest you plan the lessons as you would normally and include reading, writing and learning new topics as part of the session. There is less tutoring work out there because some experienced tutors advertise themselves or have already pupils through recommendations. Some teaching agencies also take on tutoring work from schools. You just need to see how it goes and what you get offered. If you are good, then they may offer you more depending on school budgets.
