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.Is it free to create a tutor ad?

Qualifications are only one part of become a tutor. Experience and knowledge of your subject are equally as important as is being a good educator and communicator. Discover more about tutor qualifications in our dedicated blog.What are the Legalities of Working as a Private Tutor?
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.How can I get my lessons paid via Superprof?
Make sure you get paid! We offer a secure lesson payment system, via your Superprof account.
In order lessons to be paid for online, you must click on the tab “propose a lesson”, from the site’s messaging system, and validate it with the student. You do this by clicking the "+" button at the bottom right of the conversation and offering a single lesson or packs of 5/10 hours of lessons to your students.
The student will be able to pre-pay for the lesson by credit card or Paypal and this will automatically appear in your balance. The amount will then be paid to you 24 hours after the course has taken place (assuming no problem has been reported) .
To receive this money you will need to approve a method of payment via which to receive your funds. Either a valid bank account or Paypal account. As a reminder, be sure to schedule lessons directly in your Superprof calendar so we know when they are finished.
Please note that if you choose to be paid through Superprof a 10% commission will be taken from your hourly rate to cover administrative and transactional fees. If you sign up to the Premium pass, however, this commission will be waved and you will keep 100% of the hourly lesson fee.
If you do not wish to use the secure payment system you are free to organise payments privately outside the website but at your own risk.
