This year become a tutor with us, earn good money, improve your CV and help a new generation of Scottish School Students to improve confidence and grades.

We are looking for bright, friendly students and graduates to tutor children one-to-one in-home and online.

If you are new to tutoring as a self-employed undergraduate, then it’s a pretty simple way to turn your hard-earned academic achievements into very good money and make a real difference to the next generation of high school youngsters with academic ambitions.

80% of our most successful tutors are undergraduates. For example, we currently work with, 74 at Edinburgh University and 50 plus at Glasgow University as well as Aberdeen and St Andrews Universities (as of September the start of the academic year).

Our clients are looking for tuition to Scottish SQA Highers and Standard Grades or the English equivalents. Primary-level tuition is increasingly in demand.

Students can tutor for up to six hours a week (if you are a busy undergraduate we don’t recommend more), the pay is good, and reflects the tutor’s experience it is always much higher and never less than 170% of NMW rates (.gov wage rates 2023) If you enjoy passing on knowledge and skills, this is a rewarding and enjoyable way to earn good money.

We also seek qualified teachers and academics, who often command higher fees.

We need you to;

  • have at least an A at Scottish Higher or equivalent in the subject(s) you wish to tutor
  • commit to having, or achieving, a sound knowledge of the appropriate curriculum
  • be bright, reliable, flexible and committed
  • be honest
  • commit to the subcontractor contract between us, part of which is agreeing to abide by our ET code of practice
