Tutorean is a tutoring platform that matches students and private tutors according to their specific needs. Through a simple test, we understand how students learn best and use their learning profile to match them with tutors whose teaching style is a good fit. We believe this creates a better learning experience for every student and a more rewarding teaching experience for tutors. Lessons can be held face to face or online and hundreds of subjects are available.
It's pretty simple, really. Once your profile's set up, you can begin applying to tutor students on your own Job Board. Some parents and students will get in touch with you directly. Simply arrange a place and time, and get paid for lessons directly to your bank account shortly after each lesson. We'll be here to support you along your tutoring journey!
You can apply to become a tutor here. All you have to do is follow a few basic steps to get your profile completed. Once you've submitted your profile, our review team will process your application and will consider everything from your bio to your profile video and reviews before accepting you into our active community. Importantly, please ensure your profile picture is high quality and clearly shows your face :) Check out the 'Become A Tutor' section of our FAQs to find out more.
Our tutors cover a wide variety of subjects including Maths, English, Science, Computing, Languages, Music, Psychology, Business, Economics, Art, Design, Drama and many others. Here is a complete list of subjects you can tutor. We're an all-inclusive platform so whatever you want to teach, there’s space for you!
Students vary from primary school children to mature adults looking to pick up a new skill. Whatever age range you teach, or want to teach, Tutorean will give you the opportunity to make a difference.
It is completely free to sign up, create your profile on Tutorean and chat with parents and students. We're committed to providing you with a seamless and supportive tutoring journey, and to grow features you'll love, we need your support! That's why we charge 15% commission for each lesson, the lowest in the UK (and it includes VAT!). So, if you charge £100 for a lesson you will be paid £85. Note that Tutorean is free for parents and students, so we do not charge anything on top for those who decide to book with you.
You can reach our friendly support team through the blue chat icon in the bottom right of the screen, by email on [email protected] and by phone on +44 20 3318 7126. We'd love to hear from you!
Students will usually contact you privately if your profile is a good match, and you can also apply for available roles directly in the 'Tutoring Jobs' tab. In order to climb up the rankings and get more profile views, you can book more lessons, respond quickly to new enquiries (< 1hr) and get as many reviews as possible.
Lessons are typically held in-person at a location and time agreed upon by the student and yourself. You can also set yourself up as an online tutor, which means you can book online lessons and tutor using an existing video platform like Skype or BitPaper. Check out our blog on online tutoring to find out more.
Tutors aren't employed by us, and as a tutor you must register as a self-employed individual to declare your earnings.
Please refer to the HMRC website to register as self-employed.
NB: Please make sure you are eligible to work in the UK on a self-employed basis before applying.
We require your ID to verify your details and comply with money laundering regulations. We can't approve you or process payments without it. Note that we do not view or store you ID, but we do show parents that you are ID verified with a badge in your profile.
