Tutorful offers tutors a wide variety of subjects, at any level from primary through to A-level and beyond. We are seeking tutors to help students all ages and abilities in a range of subjects as we receive enquiries from a wide range of students with a vast array of different needs.
A tutors' experience and qualifications are really important to students when they are choosing who to contact, so it is essential that you can clearly show that you have the relevant experience or qualifications to tutor your subjects. Our general guidelines are to only choose subjects that you have experience teaching and are really confident in. We also require that you hold a qualification one level above the subject that you are looking to teach. For example, if you were wanting to tutor GCSE Maths, we'd expect you to have an A Level in Maths.
The reason we have these guidelines in place is that we have found that students are more responsive to tutors who do meet these requirements and clearly indicate this on their profile. We also ask that you don't select every available subject! Students prefer a profile that is more focussed in a specific area, so please only choose the subjects that are your speciality.
When entering in your qualifications, you will need to enter the subject you studied, where you studied and the grade you received. The more qualifications you provide, the better, so please do add in the details of any qualifications you have, ranging from GCSEs to PhDs! You can add in the details of any extracurricular qualifications in the ‘other’ section.
That being said, we do appreciate that in some cases, you may not have formal qualifications one level above in the subjects and levels you want to teach, but you do have significant experience teaching the subject. In this situation, please do add in details of this into your bio - the more information you can give prospective students as to your qualifications and experience, the better!
