Private Tutor Jobs
For who? Why? How? What’s required?

If you’re looking to become a  tutor, then look no further than Superprof. More than 1 million tutors and mentors can already attest to how easy it is to advertise as a private tutor on Superprof and find students quickly all over the world.

How to Become a Private Tutor?

Asking yourself "how do I become a tutor?" or "How do find tutoring jobs near me?" Well, you've come to the right place. Starting your tutoring job is very simple. In fact, by landing on this page you've half way there already. In just 10 minutes, you can create your online tutoring advert on Superprof, advertising lessons locally and via webcam. The only thing we ask is a little goodwill when creating your profile, to give a short description of your past experiences, whether or not you've tutored before, and add a friendly, clear photo of yourself.

Why Become a Tutor?

Everyone has a passion to share or a skill to teach. Tutoring is great for people looking for a flexible schedule, part-time teaching jobs, online teaching jobs, careers after teaching, or to start their own business. 

Superprof is completely free to use for tutors, and with over 35,000 daily requests for lessons across our platforms, your ad will get great visibility. Superprof offers everyone the chance to teach, providing everything from online tutoring jobs for students, online tutoring jobs for teachers, GCSE and A level maths tutor jobs, dance teacher jobs, french tutoring jobs, art tutor jobs and 1000's more.

Luke, an online math tutor in Leeds, registered for just 1 month on Superprof. He now has 4 students and gives 24 hours of maths lessons a month. His hourly rate is £40 per hour and he earned £960 on top of his income as a teacher. Learn how to tutor maths yourself.

I’m a Student…. Can I Become a Tutor?

Students are highly sought-after as tutors. Having recently finished or currently studying your chosen discipline, you have an ideal profile to give peer tutoring or mentoring from home, and homework support for school students.

In addition, students at university or business school often have versatile skill sets that enable them to offer courses to those who need help across a variety of subjects. Whether you’re a physics tutor, Spanish tutor, ESL teacher or biology tutor, everyone is welcome on Superprof.

Tutor jobs are great for students looking for part time teaching jobs or holiday work, summer tutoring jobs, or trying to juggle their studies with active social lives.

Thomas, a pupil at LSE, has taught A-level Economics classes since 2014. Students contact him and he helps them prepare for their exams, essay writing and university entry papers. He has made university preparation his specialty. Each month, these classes bring in more than £1500.

I am a Public School Teacher...Am I Authorised to Tutor Privately as well?

Absolutely! In fact a survey in 2016 showed that in the UK nearly half of all state educators have worked in private tutoring as well at some point in their career. To date, 30,000 teachers have chosen to use Superprof to find private tutoring jobs and offer private lessons. Why not teach in a more relaxed and studious environment as a private tutor or online tutor? No rowdy classrooms to control, no detentions to issue. Get paid a great hourly wage with 1 on 1 lessons and be your own boss!

In the UK there are no laws against offering private tuition while employed as a teacher and many supplement their incomes by offering in home tutoring and online tutoring jobs from home.

It is essential to check the policy of your individual school or tutoring agency however, as some establishments place limits on teachers ability to tutor children from their own class or school. You may want to limit your tutoring to students outside your class or school, even if not directed to do so, to avoid any conflicts of interest such as perceived favouritism that might arise.

It is also important to remember that teaching and tutoring can be quite different and require alternative skills. Tutors require fewer qualifications but may have the passion and desire necessary to be a great one on one tutor.

Jobs for Ex Teachers in the UK: Life After Teaching

Want a career change from teaching? Leaving the National Teaching Service is rarely ever an easy decision for teachers wondering how to get out of teaching.

Being a teacher is one of the hardest jobs there is and one that can be very rewarding at times, but for many, the negatives of a job in teaching substantially outweigh the positives.

But do not fear, there are many jobs for retired teachers, ex teacher jobs, and teachers leaving teaching. The skills that make a teacher can be transferred to many other career paths.

Why not consider becoming a private tutor or become an online tutor from the comfort of your own home. Tutoring is one of many other jobs for teachers and with Superprof’s guides on how to be a tutor; it has never been easier to search for jobs in education other than teaching.

As a home tutor you may enjoy the freedom to develop your own style and curriculum not permitted within the education system. You could even teach a subject that you’re skilled in, yet not permitted to teach within school. For example, a physics teacher is fully authorized to begin maths tutoring jobs, English tutoring jobs, or online TEFL jobs.

I’m an Expert in my Field ... Can I Give Private Tuition?

For experienced musicians, aspiring computer scientists and sports coaches, Superprof’s platform is a great way to meet students and develop your home tutoring jobs or companies. By creating your tutor ad, you’re increasing your visibility across the UK and our sites around the world! Collect testimonials from past and present students and watch your lesson requests sky rocket.

Peter (a sports coach in Liverpool) received requests from students on the day of his registration. He started teaching the following afternoon thus, beginning his sports coaching business. Becoming a tutor helped Peter pass on his passion while increasing his weekly income. Giving lessons at his house also helped limit travel costs.

Whether you're a certified teacher, guitar tutor, writing tutor, algebra tutor, French tutor or chemistry tutor looking for students, you've come to the right place!

Whatever your profile: advertising via Superprof is entirely free for tutors. You set your own hourly rates and pay zero commission to Superprof.

What is Required of Private Tutors in the UK?

As a tutor working for yourself there are a number of legal considerations to think about to protect yourself and your students.

Report your income to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC). It’s important to keep your income and taxes up to date and a legal requirement to declare your income. Are Superprof involved in payment? No, Superprof are not involved in the payment process between tutors and students: it is for both parties to decide how they want to be paid, whether it's by cash, bank transfer, or through another means.

Insure yourself. It’s not a legal requirement to be insured as a tutor in the UK, but it’s a standard practice to do so. Consider public liability insurance, business and portable equipment insurance and professional indemnity insurance.

Be aware of health and safety. This means providing a safe environment for students to learn. This is very important if you plan to teach from your home.

Advertise honestly. Every claim you make must be factually correct, and you should be able to provide documentary proof of any qualification you claim to hold.

Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). It’s not a legal requirement for tutors to have a DBS check in the UK. However, this can provide reassurance, especially to parents of students.

What Subjects Can I Teach?

At Superprof, we offer more than 1000 subjects across dozens of categories (sports/ academia/hobbies/music/etc.). You don’t necessarily have to be a qualified tutor to be an effective educator. For example, a professional pianist is obviously qualified to give piano lessons, but teaching involves much more than certification. It requires passion; love for your craft, enthusiasm and the ability to foster these attributes in your students. A piano teacher does not necessarily have to be a concert pianist, but they must have good ideas on how to become one and how to master the instrument and the music.

If you want to start english tutor jobs, you need to have mastered the language yourself, be fluent or bilingual and able to explain concepts in writing, grammar and accent reduction. You may also be required to teach your students the basics of culture and history of the countries where the language is spoken.

How do I Create my Own Tutor Advert?

Creating your tutor ad could not be simpler, just follow the step by step instructions on Superprof and fill out each section. Here are a few helpful tips to help make it as visible as possible to potential students, allowing them to find you:

Highlight your Strengths (your skills, your experience...)

Ask yourself why a potential client may choose you over another peer tutor. Explain what differentiates you and makes your private lessons exceptional. Explain your learning style and teaching methodology.

Tell your Story.

Teaching is not just about passing on your knowledge; it is also about building a bond of trust with your students. Showing your human side is very important. Showing that you’re an interesting and thoughtful person, willing and capable of listening to others. Mention your hobbies, groups you’re part of, your travels, your past work experience, and successes in life.

Focus on the Benefits: What are you Providing to your Future Students?

Try to avoid technical terms difficult to comprehend. Also avoid bland or cliché phrases that do not detail what you will provide. For example, do not just say “I teach maths at all levels and for all abilities", mention the exact levels at which you teach (GCSE, A-level, Gmat, Sats, college etc.) as well as the exact topics (algebra, trigonometry, geometry, calculus, etc.)

Include a Picture that Makes you Stand Out

Clear frontal photos of your face are an important way for students and teachers to learn about each other. You will increase the number of contacts you make 10 fold by adding a high quality, profile picture of yourself.

Review your Ad

An advertisement full of mistakes will not be taken seriously. Re-read your ad with a text editor and make a final review before publishing.

Why Should I Offer my First lesson for Free?

If you do not have a review from a student already, Superprof requires you to offer your first session for free, however this does not have to be a formal lesson. 

The first meeting is usually reserved for getting to know each other, understanding the aims and objectives of the student and agreeing on a teaching plan that works for everyone. The first meeting can take the form most convenient to both parties.

Even if you do have a review, Superprof recommends that you offer the first class for free because;

It allows you to make a connection with the student

The purpose of the first meeting is not to give a class to your pupil, but to get to know and understand what their needs are, set up a lesson plan and a teaching method that will allow your pupil to reach his/her goals. 

It is a small investment for a greater reward

Offering one hour of your time for free to a student who may use your services all year and spread the word about your services is an excellent investment.

It reassures students

Students will contact you more frequently; it is more engaging for them.

Why be Responsive to Lesson Requests?

If your tutor listing interests a potential student, Superprof will automatically send you an email/SMS to let you know that a student wants to take a class with you.

Be reactive!

Some students contact several tutors at once to be sure to find a perfect fit. The longer you wait to answer them, the more likely it is that the will find another teacher in the meantime...

The more responsive you are, the more Superprof will improve the visibility of your ad (reactivity is part of Superprof's selection criteria).

A Specific Approach to Teaching

The most important aspect of your lesson is to restore the student’s self-esteem and build their confidence. Whether you want to teach English online, French, English reading, computer science, biochemistry, econometrics or piano, it is important to be enthusiastic and encouraging. In a student-teacher relationship, it is essential to implement a "2 way street" where students feel comfortable to ask questions and challenge themselves.

There is no magic recipe to tutoring. Each tutor has his or her own exercises, syllabus and tips to help the student succeed. Each tutor must put in the time to create an individualized, structured and personalized program for each tutee. Through this approach, the student can acquire new, and reinforce old, methodological skills.
