    ive been tutoring for a few years and got all my students from word of mouth.
    I’ve just gone back to work and want just one or two children to tutor. What’s the best way to advertise?
    I put myself on tutor hunt but not got anything yet.
    I’m a maths teacher with both gcse and a level experience (been teaching 5 years)

    Sorry no new job. Lost my old kids I tutored as they sat their GCSEs last summer.

    You said you have gone back to work. If not in a school then still it would be advisable to spend some time settling in, presuming it's a another professional workplace.

    The best way to get students is word of mouth. If you've been tutoring a few years you may well get people contact you over the next few weeks, it often takes a couple of weeks to settle into school before they start thinking about tuition.

    Otherwise there are already several threads on this forum about ways of advertising for students so have a look at those for ideas.

    Old-fashioned, but I get most of my tutees through a little poster in the local post offices and shops. Tutor Hunt seems to have dried up for now.

    I’ve tried to put it on here but it breaches the advertising rules.
