What do you do during the daytimes?

Discussion in 'Private tutors' started by ttillier, Sep 8, 2011.

  1. Hi everyone

    I became a private tutor in July after i was made redundant following my school deciding to use the money from 1 to 1 elsewhere. I decided to become a full free lance private tutor of maths. I got a few clients during the summer and currently have 14 on my books.

    But now it is term time again and i find myself at a loss during the day time from 9am-3pm - what do other people do during the daytime? From 3pm its all good as i have 2-3 clients an evening

    Any experiences would be most welcome :)

    I spend hours online looking for a full time job... If I had loads of clients like you, I'd start painting (in an ideal world I'd like to be an artist).

    Is that the One-to-One programme? Or is it an EBD etc school?

    One to one programme - keeps me busy!!
    I have about 13 - 14 hrs of private tutoring. Generally 4 - 8 - but don't work Thursday nights because of family and I work Sat am.
    But I would love a full time job. Have heavy financial commitments!!1

    I work as a distance learning tutor. Like any job it has its good and bad features, but I enjoy it; it's flexible and I can work from anywhere in the world as long as I have an internet connection. I do miss the face-to-face work at times. Working with adults is very different to being in a classroom with children, but with other bits I do, I get a good balance of different roles and environments.

    I have some students who I see daytime (post-16) but otherwise mundane jobs plus the odd bit of mystery shopping.

    I was going to say 'snap' but I think my mystery shopping is probably a different kind from yours (especially now it's coming up to Christmas) ! [​IMG]
     
  10. Where do you get your mystery shopping assignments from? If you don't mind sharing of course : )

    There are tons of companies doing it, some pay better than others. Visit the MSE forum for mystery shopping and there is a list on the first page. And lots of advice too.
