Become a tutor Tutor Application FAQs Who would I be tutoring? Where does tuition take place? As a tutor you will work with pupils from a disadvantaged background who are either not making the expected progress, or who require an extra push to achieve even more. Unlike private tutors, we work directly with schools rather than parents and tuition typically takes place at these schools during the day. We work across the Greater Manchester, Leeds and Liverpool regions, so our tutors must be prepared to travel for as much as an hour to get to their assignments.
