More and more individuals are starting work as private tutors, from recent graduates looking to gain a solid income stream, to teachers leaving the classroom to pastures new. It can be hard to stand out in what is a highly saturated market. Coming up with hourly rates and deciding which agencies to register with can be a real minefield.
My tutor support service helps tutors to understand the industry. I advise tutors who are looking to develop their skills and make the most of their subject knowledge, particularly those transitioning from teaching in schools.
WHAT I OFFER
WHAT THEY SAY...
What do tutors say about my tutor support service?
'After 20 years in the classroom I made the decision to work as a tutor but I had no idea how to get started. I contacted Patrick and he allayed all of my concerns. In one Zoom call he was able to get to the heart of my insecurities and reassure me that I had nothing to worry about. The report he produced for me was thorough and personalised, based on what we had discussed. I continue to seek his guidance as and when a question crops up.'
'I moved to England to teach in a school but it didn't work out. The system was very different to what I was expecting and I didn't get to work with children on an individual basis. A parent at the school put me in contact with Patrick who advised me that private tuition would be more suited to my skillset. I didn't know anything about how to get going but with his help I was soon able to get a steady stream of students.'
'Patrick was so helpful! His knowledge of home education was the most useful thing to me as I was really struggling to fill up my daytime slots. He introduced me to a couple of home educating families and I went from there. His service is great value for money given that he remains in contact with me months down the line.'
'What Patrick offers is exceptional. I was a little apprehensive at first as I'd didn't want to commit to something that wouldn't help me but I had no need to worry. As a recent graduate, I didn't know how I'd be able to get students to pick me over all of the other options. Patrick gave me great tips about how to differentiate myself.'
