Today I’m sharing the second post in my side hustle series an it’s all about how you can make money tutoring. I don’t have much knowledge of tutoring from a tutor’s perspective I’ve asked the lovely Emma from Emma and 3 to tell you all about how she makes extra money from tutoring.
I can really see how you could make money tutoring simply because I know that personally, it’s definitely something that I would consider for my children if I felt they’d benefit from some extra help. We all want the best for our children and if hiring a tutor will help them do better at school and give them a better start to life as a grown up then we would do what we can to find the money to pay for it.
How to make money tutoring
Tutoring is a sideline for many teachers and university graduates. It is really enjoyable and rewarding to be able to work one to one with students. As a qualified English teacher I have an in demand subject as it is essential for GCSE students to get their C grade or above.
Tutoring is great for a student as they can iron out those weaknesses and fill any knowledge gaps. I tutor GCSE and A Level. I have also used a Maths tutor for my own daughter as sometimes a parent (no matter how knowledgeable) just can’t tutor their own child without arguments!
I often get approached via word of mouth from others who I have helped. You can also register your details on sites like Tutor Hunt or First Tutors who take a fee from the tutee if they connect with you. Doing it through an agency is reputable as you upload ID for safeguarding including DBS checks.
You set your own fee but expect to charge £20-£30 per hour. In terms of time I spend 30 mins or so preparing for the lesson then a one hour tutorial.
