I’m a Student. Can I Become a Tutor?

Students are highly sought-after as tutors. Having recently finished or currently studying your chosen discipline, you have an ideal profile to give peer tutoring or mentoring from home, and homework support for school students.

In addition, students at university or business school often have versatile skill sets that enable them to offer courses to those who need help across a variety of subjects. Whether you’re a physics tutor, Spanish tutor, ESL teacher or biology tutor, everyone is welcome on Superprof.

Tutor jobs are great for students looking for part time teaching jobs or holiday work, summer tutoring jobs, or trying to juggle their studies with active social lives.

James, a pupil at Monash, has taught VCE Economics classes since 2014. Students contact him and he helps them prepare for their exams, essay writing and university entry papers. He has made university preparation his specialty. Each month, these classes bring in more than $800.

I am a School Teacher. Am I Authorised to Tutor Privately as well?

Absolutely! In fact a survey in 2016 showed that nearly half of all state educators have worked in private tutoring as well at some point in their career. To date, more than 300,000 teachers have chosen to use Superprof globally to find private tutoring jobs and offer private lessons. Why not teach in a more relaxed and studious environment as a private tutor or online tutor? No rowdy classrooms to control, no detentions to issue. Get paid a great hourly wage with 1 on 1 lessons and be your own boss!

In Canada there are no laws against offering private lessons while employed as a teacher and many supplement their incomes by offering in home tutoring and online tutoring jobs from home.

It is essential to check the policy of your individual school or tutoring agency however, as some establishments place limits on teachers ability to tutor children from their own class or school. You may want to limit your tutoring to students outside your class or school, even if not directed to do so, to avoid any conflicts of interest such as perceived favouritism that might arise.

It is also important to remember that teaching and tutoring can be quite different and require alternative skills. Tutors require fewer qualifications but may have the passion and desire necessary to be a great one on one tutor.

Jobs for Ex Teachers in Canada Life After Teaching

Want a career change from teaching? Leaving the Teaching discipline is never an easy decision.

But do not fear, there are many jobs for retired teachers, ex teacher jobs, and teachers looking for a new adventure. Why not consider becoming a private tutor or become an online tutor from the comfort of your own home. Tutoring is one of many other jobs for teachers and with Superprof’s guides on how to be a tutor; it has never been easier to search for jobs in education other than teaching.

As a home tutor you may enjoy the freedom to develop your own style and curriculum not permitted within the education system. You could even teach a subject that you’re skilled in, yet not permitted to teach within the sometimes bureaucratic school system!

What is Required of Private Tutors in Canada?

As a tutor, teacher or trainer working for yourself there are a number of legal considerations to think about to protect yourself and your students.

It’s important to ensure your income and taxes are up to date and it is a legal requirement to declare your income. Are Superprof involved in payment? No, Superprof are not involved in the payment process between tutors and students: it is for both parties to decide how they want to be paid, whether it's by cash, bank transfer, or through another means.

Insure yourself. It’s not a legal requirement to be insured as a tutor in Canada, but it’s a standard practice to do so. Consider public liability insurance, business and portable equipment insurance and professional indemnity insurance.

Be aware of health and safety. This means providing a safe environment for students to learn. This is very important if you plan to teach from your home.

Advertise honestly. Every claim you make must be factually correct, and you should be able to provide documentary proof of any qualification you claim to hold.

What Subjects Can I Teach?

At Superprof, we offer more than a thousand subjects across dozens of categories (sports/ academia/hobbies/music/etc.). You don’t necessarily have to be a qualified tutor or trainer to be an effective teacher. For example, a professional pianist is obviously qualified to give piano lessons. We are very much of the belief that teaching involves much more than certification. It requires passion; love for your craft, enthusiasm and the ability to foster these attributes in your students. A piano teacher does not necessarily have to be a concert pianist, but they must have good ideas on how to become one and how to master the instrument and the music.

If you want to start tutoring in English, you need to have mastered the language yourself, be fluent or bilingual and able to explain concepts in writing, grammar and accent reduction. You may also be required to teach your students the basics of culture and history of the countries where the language is spoken.

How do I Create my Own Teaching Ad?

Creating your teaching ad could not be simpler, just follow the step by step instructions on Superprof and fill out each section. Here are a few tips to help make your ad as visible as possible to potential students:

Highlight your Strengths (skills, experience...)

Ask yourself why a potential client may choose you over another peer tutor. Explain what differentiates you and makes your private lessons exceptional. Explain your learning style and teaching methodology.

Tell your Story.

Teaching is not just about passing on your knowledge; it is about building a bond of trust with your students. Showing your human side is very important. Showing that you’re an interesting and thoughtful person, willing and capable of listening to others. Mention your hobbies, groups you’re part of, your travels, your past work experience, and successes in life.

Focus on the Benefits: What are you Providing to your Future Students?

Try to avoid technical terms difficult to comprehend. Also avoid bland or cliché phrases that do not detail what your lessons will provide. For example, do not just say “I teach maths at all levels and for all abilities", mention the exact levels at which you teach (UMAT, VCE, QCE, HSC, Gmat, Uni etc.) as well as the exact topics (algebra, trigonometry, geometry, calculus, etc.)

Include a Picture that Makes you Stand Out

Clear frontal photos of your face are an important part of your profile. You will increase the number of contacts you make 10 fold by adding a high quality, profile photo of yourself.

Review your Ad

An advertisement full of mistakes will not be taken seriously. Re-read your ad with a text editor and make a final review before publishing.

Why Should I Offer my First lesson for Free?

If you do not have a review from a student already, Superprof requires you to offer your first session for free, however this does not have to be a formal lesson. 

The first meeting is usually reserved for getting to know each other, understanding the aims and objectives of the student and agreeing on a teaching plan that works for everyone. The first meeting can take the form most convenient for both parties.

Even if you do have a review, Superprof recommends that you offer the first class for free because;

It allows you to make a connection with the student

The purpose of the first meeting is not to give a class to your pupil, but to get to know and understand what their needs are, set up a lesson plan and a teaching method that will allow your pupil to reach his/her goals. 

It is a small investment for a greater reward

Offering one hour of your time for free to a student who may use your services all year and spread the word about your services is an excellent investment.

It reassures students

Students will contact you more frequently and it is more engaging for them.

Why be Responsive to Lesson Requests?

If your tutor listing interests a potential student, Superprof will automatically send you an email/SMS to let you know that a student wants to take a class with you. Please respond quickly to your lesson requests. Even if you are unable to accept a request, let the student know so they can start looking for another tutor that is available.

Be reactive!

Some students contact several tutors at once to be sure to find a perfect fit. The longer you wait to answer them, the more likely it is that the will find another teacher in the meantime...

The more responsive you are, the more Superprof will improve the visibility of your ad (reactivity is part of Superprof's selection criteria).

A Specific Approach to Teaching

The most important aspect of your lesson is to build up the student’s knowledge and confidence within a given subject. Whether you want to teach English, computer science, biochemistry, or piano, it is important to be enthusiastic and encouraging. In a student-teacher relationship, it is essential to implement a "2 way street" where the student feels comfortable to ask questions and challenge themselves.

There is no magic recipe to tutoring. Each tutor has his or her own exercises, syllabus and tips to help the student succeed. Each tutor must put in the time to create an individualized, structured and personalised program for each student. Through this approach, the student can acquire new and reinforce old, methodological skills.
