Welcome to Tutor Trust
We’re a proudly northern charity whose mission is to transform lives through tutoring. We believe in equity in education, regardless of postcode or background, so every young person can reach their potential.
Training to become a tutor with us is really rewarding; we’ll also support your professional development along the way and pay you generously for your hard work.
What tutoring looks like
About the role
You'll empower young people to reach their potential in Maths, English or Science at primary and secondary level. Using our small-group model, you'll tutor no more than three pupils and therefore be able to focus on individualised learning needs.
Most of our tuition assignments last 15 school weeks, meaning you'll be able to make a noticeable impact over time with your students.
And just so you know, to tutor with us, you must be able to register as self-employed and be willing to undergo enhanced DBS and reference checks.
Our fantastic core training and ongoing support will make you confident from your very first tutoring session. Learn more about training here.
Working as a tutor for a charity doesn't mean working for free. We pay our tutors competitive rates. Use our calculator to estimate how much you could earn.

Ready to start your application to tutor with us? Click here.
Complete an online application form where you'll list your personal details, relevant experiences, and write a short personal statement. The application form should take 20-30 minutes to complete.
If your application is successful, you'll attend a 20-minute virtual interview where you'll meet some of the team, tell us why you want to become a tutor, and present two interview tasks which we'll have sent you in advance.
If you pass your interview, you'll join our tutor training programme, curated by our in-house team of qualified teachers, as they support you on how to plan and deliver impactful tuition. The content consists of 10-15 hours of online content spread over three-to-four weeks.
We'll process your DBS and reference checks in the background so you should be able to go out into the classroom after your training.
