Some teachers choose to become full-time tutors, although it can take a while for an individual to build up a full portfolio of clients. This is also dependent upon the subjects you can offer and your location. If it is your ambition to leave the classroom and become a full-time tutor, we would advise that you begin by registering with two or three good quality tutor agencies; also to advertise yourself as a private tutor, perhaps with your own website; also not to undercharge your fees and to only accept good quality clients and families. Over a year or two, you will begin to build up your reputation in your local area ... and you will gradually build up your own business.


At its heart, we know that education is a simple thing.
Whoever we are, wherever we may be,
we all need to experience the joy of achievement, our own and others'
… and then we need great teachers.
