Become a private tutor


Tutors provide personalized learning to individuals outside of the classroom environment. They help students to improve their grades, understand difficult concepts, receive extra help to catch up with classroom lessons, prepare for higher grade education, and get ready for formal standardized examinations, such as the SAT, SSAT, IGCSE, AP, GMAT,IELTS, GRE, CHECKPOINT, Entrance Examinations,. In order to improve students effectively, tutors must be able to tap into what motivates each individual student and adjust their approach accordingly. This we do at the Premier City tutors NG.

Tutors are experienced professionals and educators who provide private tuition to help students at the locale of their choice, improve their educational performance, develop study skills, prepare for academic examinations or gain occupational skills. They offer feedback, assess students’ academic needs and craft personalized plans that support learning success. They should have expertise and experience in the fields they tutor in, and they should also be comfortable with dealing with students in difference age groups and learning capabilities. Tutoring categories include math, science, social studies, English and foreign languages.

Private tuition has become an industry worth billions. Recent studies have reported more than 25% of students have used private tuition services, with that figure passing 40% in the capital. Once you factor in adult students, the potential marketplace for a private tutor is huge! There has never been a better time to become a private tutor. But you’re not the only one who has noticed. Many people, including qualified teachers, are now offering private tuition services. Sometimes alongside their day jobs, which is seeing a record number of teachers supplementing their income by becoming a private tutor, sometimes as a full-time job.

So, how do you get your piece of the action? Becoming a private tutor can be hugely rewarding, as well as being a great way to earn a living whilst choosing your hours and being your own boss. It may seem daunting from where you are right now, but fear not – the premier City tutors NG is here to help. 

What Qualifications do I need to Become a Private Tutor?

At City tutors,  we consider a good University degree in a subject to be a pre-requisite for teaching it, but the reality is that many people from all walks of life, and all levels of education, are very successful tutors today. Your personal competencies are the main factors we consider – having qualifications in a subject is likely to mean less time spent preparing lessons. Good academic qualification and expert experience are what we celebrate at City tutors NG.

Having become a private tutor, several agencies exist to promote tuition businesses and connect tutors with to students but we at City tutors NG request evidence of professional qualifications and references, and whilst these can provide an indication of the suitability of an individual for private tutoring, they can only ever provide part of the story. Subject knowledge alone does not make a good tutor. Some subjects also place less stock in qualifications, music being an example –  hands-on competence with the instrument in question will be the deciding factor and will be evident from the first lesson.

Ultimately the only prerequisite for becoming a successful private tutor is possessing a solid mastery of the material you intend to teach your student in their next lesson. The less background you possess, the harder you will need to work to stay ahead of them as they develop! 

OK, how do I Become a Private Tutor?

Once the decision to offer tuition has been made, all you need to become a private tutor is students to teach! If you are content that you have the right qualifications, knowledge and teaching experience in the subjects that you intend to teach, you need to let the world know you’re there ready to help prospective students.

There are many agencies who can help you establish yourself once you have become a private tutor, offering you a platform on which to advertise yourself, and access to students seeking tutors in your area. These may be a tempting proposition for a new tutor but beware of the charges! At City tutors, we have a flat monthly fee for tutors, some request a percentage of all lesson fees whilst others charge the student a fee. Of the three options, a flat fee for the tutor is the better option.
