Become a tutor Tutor FAQs Can I work for The Tutor Trust Full-Time? We have many tutors working with The Tutor Trust full-time. However, we would recommend you do not solely rely on The Tutor Trust as your primary income. As tutors are self-employed, we cannot guarantee a fixed amount of hours. Tutors can usually work up to 25 hours per week with us, factoring in travel times from school to school, but these hours often take several weeks to build up. As we work directly with schools during term time, tutors will also not be paid during school holidays. Some of our tutors supplement their work with us through private tuition, other jobs in the third sector or part-time work elsewhere.
