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. The schools we work with are based all over the Greater Manchester, Leeds and Liverpool regions, so we want tutors who are prepared to travel outside of their respective city centres.
