Tips for a student on how to start working as a tutor

Many students already in their second or third year are thinking about a part-time job. They can't get a job in their major, they can't get a job at McDonald's, they can't get a job at university as a lab technician, and they don't get paid enough. But that's okay! With good grades and solid knowledge, you can become a school tutor: students often earn just that.

How can you become a good tutor

Tutoring is not a bad kind of part-time job for students. You can adjust the work schedule, no one will ask about the teacher's diploma, the school program is still available. Moreover - many parents prefer beginner student tutors for several reasons: a small age difference (which means you and your student will speak the same language), fresh memories of the exams and university admission, and, what the hell, the low cost. Many are not even embarrassed that a teacher with no work experience or experience in school will come to their child.

But it is not enough just to declare your intention to teach. To be in demand tutor and get a good result from the work you need:

• Be punctual and responsible. A person who is late for his or her lessons and doesn't prepare materials simply won't be taken seriously.
• Be able to find common ground with students. The most frequent clients of tutors are not excellent students who are preparing for the Olympiads, but pupils who are behind in their studies and are not interested in learning.
• Have friendliness and patience. There is nothing without it in usual pedagogics, and during individual work - certainly not.
• Be able to explain the material "on the fingers" in the simplest language. Since you'll most often have to work with underachieving students, you'll have to simplify any information until they figure it out.

And the most important thing is to be able to make a good impression on the parents. It will depend on your understanding with your relatives how long you will be tutoring your student. After all, they are the ones who decide whether their child needs a tutor or not.

When it's best to start

The first year is not the best time to start this kind of work. The freshman himself has just graduated from school, and there is little he can teach. But there is practically no time and effort for part-time work in the first year of university. In the second year, it is more real, but students usually do not want at this time to get a job. But the third year is great. If you feel confident enough and understand that working as a tutor will not harm your studies, feel free to recruit students from the third year.

Tips for the Beginning Tutor

Practice on people you know

If you decide to become a tutor, you have to start with children you know, teaching them for free. Maybe your little brother doesn't speak English well, or maybe your neighbor's child is just studying for an exam. Study with students you know: this will allow you to get up to speed, understand the pitfalls, and make up your mind. It is likely that after the first lessons with your younger relatives you will decide that pedagogy is not your thing.

Read about other people's experiences

Perhaps one of your friends or classmates already teaches students. Ask them around, find out more about their experiences. The most relevant information will be just the guys who teach the same subject as you do.

Choose the right discipline

It makes much more sense to teach a discipline that you love and are passionate about. For example, if your friend always asked you for a cpm homework help, you take pay attention to this subject. Or if you read articles about physics and astronomy in your spare time, and enrolled in programming, dreaming of a big salary - deal with children in physics, not computer science. Otherwise, your children will feel your lack of confidence in the subject, and unwillingness to study it. It will be much more helpful if you teach a non-core subject that you sincerely love. Well, if the specialty and area of interest coincide - all the better!

It is possible to teach several subjects at once. It is common to combine related subjects (e.g. algebra and geometry, math and physics, chemistry and biology). If you want to teach several subjects at once, think about how to link them together. This will keep students interested and invite them to take additional classes in another science. Also, two subjects mean twice as many potential clients.
