Become a tutor Tutor Application FAQs About my pay… We pay our tutors in arrears on the 25th of every month. This means your pay will reflect all the work you did in the previous month e.g. on the 25th October, you will be paid for all the work you did in September. You will be paid for ‘contact time’ (the tuition session you deliver) and ‘non-contact time’ (the preparation done at home for the session). The minimum you will be paid is £12 per hour for contact time and £5 per hour for non-contact time; pay will increase and vary according to factors including number of pupils being tutored and length of the session. The Tutor Trust will be responsible for processing your pay. We do not cover travel expenses for our tutors, however if you take on an assignment that requires commuting longer than usual, this will be reflected in the rate of pay. When you become a Tutor Trust tutor you register as self-employed, which must be done on the HMRC website.
