Roles and Responsibilities

Tutors prepare students for exams, passing tests and gaining qualifications. Tutors achieve this by developing the skills of their students, teaching them more about a subject and helping them to complete coursework. Tutors often help students progress from one stage of their education to the next, for example from secondary school through to university. Tutors do this either one-to-one or in a wider group setting with multiple students in a private classroom. Tutors are being increasingly employed online to teach in virtual classrooms.

  • Creating lesson plans for the students
  • Assessing students on their existing ability in a subject area
  • Creating a schedule for further education and development in subject areas
  • Assessing a student’s level of progress within a subject and identifying areas for improvement
  • Providing mock examinations or tests to prepare students for real exams
  • Reviewing student’s homework assignments  and test scores and working through problem questions that the student did not answer correctly
  • Providing support for students during their examinations
  • Communicating with parents/guardians about trouble areas or any issues that requite attention
  • Keeping up-to-date on the current curriculum and latest teaching trends

  • Ability to plan and schedule
  • Knowledge relating to the subject area being taught
  • Ability to motivate students to study
  • Patience and understanding
  • Ability to adapt to different learning styles

Successful Tutors will have experience creating lesson plans and providing assessments. Tutors ideally have experience teaching either on a one-on-one basis or within a wider classroom setting. Tutors may have previously taught in primary or secondary schools or worked as University Lecturers. If they do not have direct classroom or tutoring experience, then a proven ability to communicate and provide support in other settings is necessary.

 

Desired Experience/Qualifications 

A Tutor requires a university degree, ideally in the subject that they plan to teach or in a subject with transferable knowledge and skills. For example, if a Tutor teaches Geography A levels, they need a Bachelor’s Degree in Geography or in a related subject such as natural sciences or geology. Entry-level Tutors, however do not normally require this. Many Tutors have also taken a post-graduate degree in teaching or in their subject matter.

To reach degree and postgraduate level,

  • 5 GCSEs, including a GCSE in the subject they will be teaching.
  • 2 or 3 A levels (1 must be English, Maths or Science depending on teaching area)
