Job Description/Duties

The Tutor Trust has been delivering tuition across Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds  since February 2012. We have now delivered over 90,000 hours of tuition in English, Maths and Science at over 200 primary and secondary schools, supporting over 10,000 pupils.

While we are primary a face-to-face tuition charity who deliver tuition to pupils in their schools, during the period of school closures we have begun delivering tuition online. We envisage that during the 2020-21 academic year we will be delivering substantial quantities of both face-to-face and online tuition, and are looking for tutors who are able to deliver both. All of the schools we work with are within travelling distance of  Leeds city centre via public transport.

You will be paid for your work (between £12 and £19 hourly) if the tuition requires it 'Non Contact Time' pay is also given as we expect our tutors to prepare adequately for their sessions. Our training this year will all take place online over our learning platform. The training is a mixture of self-directed learning through structured pathways and interactive live sessions. Training in total will take around 10 hours to complete and you will not be paid for this time.

Our tuition is delivered either on a 1:1 basis or in small groups. The maximum size for a group is 3 students. We aim to be flexible and respect the fact that different tutors will want to do different amounts of work and will have different availability during the week.  We ask that tutors make a commitment to deliver a minimum of 3 hours per week of tuition in school. We cannot guarantee a specific number of tuition hours per week, due to schools’ changing requirements. 

Please ensure you have the right to register as self-employed in the UK, and that you possess an EU passport or the relevant documents/tier of visa. We advise that anybody who is unsure on whether they are eligible to register as self- employed to check by calling HMRC before completing an application form.
