Note: Qualified Teachers should visit our dedicated qualified teachers page. If you're a teacher, you can still join us over the summer period.
Take a glimpse of what we're about, and hear from some of our tutors, tutees, and stakeholders in the below video:
*We pay our tutors a minimum of £21 (£24 or £28.50 for Qualified Teachers, dependent on experience) to plan and deliver a session. This means that tutors will receive a minimum of £315 (£360 or £427.50 for QTs, dependent on experience) for every standard assignment of 15 hours. This applies to all face-to-face and online sessions. Our one-off bonus incentives apply for the academic year 2022/23 only.
As a tutor, you’ll work with the same group of young people every week at the same time, over the course of an assignment (normally 15 school weeks). We expect you to show sustained commitment to your tutees by being reliable, punctual, and organised every week.
Most tutoring takes place during the school day (8am – 4pm) inside the school building, and during school term times. You’ll need to factor in travel times when applying for assignments, but tutoring is normally held in two to three-hour blocks to minimise this. We expect you to commit to a minimum of three hours of tutoring per week, but you can take on as much work as you like. If you’re only available for evening and weekend work, then it is unlikely that any of our work will be suitable for you.
If you have alternative or equivalent qualifications, for example, an A-Level, or a degree (completed or in progress) in your chosen subject, then we normally count this as you meeting our grade requirements. If you don’t meet these grades, but feel you have other relevant experience, please apply but include details of all other experiences you have, including relevant start and end dates.
When you've finished your tutor training, provided your DBS and references are cleared, you'll be able to go out in the classroom and start transforming lives! You'll be able to apply for assignments using our online booking portal.
