Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

💰  How much do I charge for private tuition?

When it comes to deciding how much to charge for private tuition, there is no single answer. The price of private tutoring can vary greatly depending on your qualifications, the type of tuition you offer and where it is given.
If you want to become a tutor, the best place to start is to research the price of private tuition in your area. You can start by offering lessons at a lower price than your competitors to attract students and build your reputation. Once you have a steady list of students, you can start raising your prices.
The price of private tuition should also reflect the level of tutoring you can offer. If you have more experience or qualifications than other tutors, you may charge more for your services. If you offer specialised lessons, such as guitar lessons, or you´re a piano tutor, you may also charge a higher price.
Your location may also influence the price of private tuition. If you are in an area with a higher cost of living, you may have to adjust your prices accordingly. You may also be able to offer discounts to students coming from further afield.
Ultimately, the price of private tuition is up to you. You can choose to charge what you consider a fair price for the classes you offer, and you can always adjust your prices as necessary over time.

📖  How do I prepare for a private lesson?

Preparing for a private lesson is an important task that requires thought and energy. To be a tutor of any kind you need to know the subject you are going to teach and how best to teach it. The first step in preparing for a class is to know the subject matter thoroughly. Knowing the subject inside and out will allow you to better answer students' questions and help them to the best of your ability.
Once you know the subject well, it is important to decide how you are going to teach it. Will you use a lecture, demonstration or some other method? It is important to have a plan and be prepared to adjust it as necessary.
Next, it is important to create a comfortable and engaging environment for the learner. You should create an environment where the learner feels comfortable asking questions and engaging with you and the material.
Finally, it is important to prepare some activities or exercises for the learner. This can be anything from a quiz to a practical activity to a writing exercise. This will help the learner engage with the material in a deeper and more meaningful way.
In general, lesson preparation is an important task that requires thought and energy. Understanding the subject matter, deciding on a methodology, creating a comfortable and attractive environment and having some activities or exercises prepared are important steps to successfully prepare for a particular lesson. As a private tutor, it is important to understand and use all these steps in order to have a fruitful and productive lesson.

  • Would you like your first job to be teaching private tuition? Go ahead! Nothing is stopping you. Experience is not a requirement, although if you have already worked in voluntary work or even helped your colleagues to understand certain concepts, all the better for you.
  • Didactic material. It goes without saying that you will need materials to prepare your private tuition. Most of the time it will be the student himself/herself who will lend you his/her textbook or notes, but you should not rely on this alone. Your job as a tutor is to look for other resources and to complement your student's education.
