Become a tutor for The Scholarship Hunt

Apply to become a tutor for The Scholarship Hunt

Vacancies – We’re hiring.

We are always interested to hear from people who would like to become a tutor for The Scholarship Hunt

Although we ourselves reside in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, our clients come from locations throughout the UK.

This means that we could already be in contact with a family, not far from where you live, who may require a tutor in your specialist subject.

All subjects covered

We are interested to hear from tutors in all subjects, including

  • Maths
  • English
  • Science (Physics, Biology, Chemistry)
  • Music
  • History
  • Geography

Various syllabus and levels catered for

  • Syllabus includes state maintained primary school studies
  • Common Entrance (CE) examinations including Scholarship papers
  • GCSE
  • Grammar School 11+ exams
  • Individual school entrance exams

What we require from you

You’ll be someone who’s passionate about their specialist subject and also able to generate a similar level of enthusiasism in your tutees.

This will most probably be reflected in a strong academic record, with supporting results and references to match.

These vacancies are to support our clients who are looking to secure a tutor for their children who will be there for the long-term, to help their child progress academically.

Because of this, please note that if you’re only looking for some ‘fill-in work’ or if you’re only considering tutoring in the short-term until something ‘better’ comes along, then we’d ask you not to apply.

Regarding qualifications, at the least we’d expect you to have a degree in your subject, a PGCE qualification (unless you have taught in the private sector) and a recent Enhanced DBS Check.

If your Enhanced DBS Check (or CRB as it was in the past) has lapsed we can obtain one for you. (There is a small fee for this, all of which goes to the DBS.)

What can you expect from us

We only work with parents who want to secure the best possible education for their children.

This could mean:

  • securing a place at a private independent school
  • getting into the best local state maintained school
  • or progressing through a course of home based study.

You’ll have the opportunity to inspire and support children one-to-one and see them develop their skills and knowledge.

An opportunity to create and manage a flexible timetable that fits around your needs and other interests.

As a self-employed tutor you’ll be free to take on as much tutoring as you wish.

Here’s a recent blog post providing further details about being a tutor with The Scholarship Hunt.
