please can you advise on Tutoring - Public Forum request TES Global

Hi All,

I'd really appreciate your collective advice on how to do tutoring. I find myself without a teaching post, and while I am getting interviews, I am just not getting the jobs.

As a result, I'd like to tutor but I need advice on several matters:

1. Advertising-
Do you think creating cards or leaflets is best and posting through letter boxes?
Would you advise gum tree?

2. Contracts-
Where would I download an editable one?
Would I need to have a slightly different one for each child according to their needs?

3. Terms and conditions-
Regarding payments etc is there a place I could get one to download?

4. Status- Self employed, sole trader, ltd? Which would be most appropriate?

5. DBS
How can I make it clear that I have one and then keep it updated as tutor?

Any advice on any of these matters would be appreciated. If I have left anything off, please let me know.

I find myself in a difficult postion, as I need to be available to take my youngest to hospital appointments during the week, and so I can only work in evenings and weekends. I have sought work outside of teaching, but I realise I need to use the skills I have as effectively as possible.

I thank you all in advance.

SSS

Hi @slingshotsally ,

1. Leaflets will get you out there, but may not be the most cost effect method. Is it possible for you to put up notices in local library, community centres, shops, Tesco, Asda etc ? These are sometimes free. I haven't used GumTree, but it may be worth a look. Also, take out adverts in any free local papers. Also, depending on your situation, could you contact ex-colleagues or arrange for local schools to take a flyer ? Placing an advert on a website and using social media may help.

2 & 3 I will PM you a (sanitised) copy of mine. It is in PDF format, since I can't appear to be able to upload the Word file. It may be what you want, if not - please dump.

4. I would strongly urge self employed as a sole trader. Although you will probably have to fill out self assessment returns, you can claim legitimate business expenses.

Best of luck with finding your first student

here goes

I have never created leaflets or paid to advertise. I used to have a website but there were costs involved and I have recently let it go because my Facebook page costs nothing and brings me in a fair amount of work. Get your friends and family to share the page, share it on local selling sites on facebook which are also free. Share hints and tips for your subject or news articles as well as adverts themselves. People scroll through adverts unless they are looking for something specific.

Get yourself a profile on Tutor Hunt / First Tutors / UK tutors. It is free. Do a search and see what others in your area are offering and charging. Don't undersell yourself. Be realistic about how far you are prepared to travel. 15 mins each way ,makes an hour long lesson an hour and a half

Is it a tutoring business? I've never really noticed one of those, only manual trades, estate agents and tutoring franchises *not on cars though, just banners and billboards.

That is interesting, as I guess if they see the car then you are prepared to work in that area.

It may suit you to work permanently at a tutoring place. There are some around and you could try and get a job at one of those.

I find with tutoring it all depends on your subject! Some people do well others don't. If you have a high demand subject that requires exams and lots do it then you will be fine.

Once you have one student and if you do a good job they will just come to you.

There have been threads like this before and the key advice is not to pay for an agency, as@Apple101 pointed out you will be fine if there is demand for your subject and apart from anything else there are agencies where the tutors do not have to pay for the contacts. Tutorhunt is just one and other people may know of others. 

I would not pay an agency if I didn't have to if I were you.

Just to update this thread.

I have been approached to teach English, Maths and Science to GCSE level to one student who has been very ill, but is now able to resume study but is unable to attend school as convalescence will take sometime.

Many thanks for all your kind advice as it has helped me so much.

Here's a fun way to advertise yourself as a tutor.

Get your business card, go to the library, and leave them in some books that are related to your tutoring subject.

Online Tutoring Qualification

https://www.conted.ox.ac.uk/courses/effective-online-tutoring-online#tutors

Overview
(A Thanks ref Oxford Uni info online)

This tutored online studying and teaching course provides an introduction to teaching online courses – empowering prospective online tutors with the opportunity to develop the skills and experience they need to teach effectively online.

The target audience for this course is teachers delivering education online, academics looking to develop new skills for teaching online courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate-levels courses, and organisations involved in Continuing Professional Development who wish to improve the effectiveness of their online and distance learning courses.

The course lasts for eight weeks - see 'Programme Details' section below.

There is usually a maximum of 16 participants on this course.

The course is also suitable for individuals looking to deliver online training or those interested in facilitating online collaborative spaces.

All of the Department's Online Short Courses are developed by our Technology-Assisted Lifelong Learning (TALL) unit. To learn more, please see theTALL website.

The course provides a practical introduction to the social, administrative and pedagogical techniques of teaching online. Focused specifically on teaching, rather than on designing or developing online courses, this course will introduce you to the role of the online tutor through selected reading, group discussions, role-playing, case studies and other activities.

This is a tutored online course - there is no requirement for attendance at the University of Oxford at any stage of the course.

In this course we will: explore the online learning environment; identify the responsibilities and practical skills required by online tutors; look at techniques for managing and facilitating online activities; and consider the challenges of teaching online.

Learning by doing is a key concept of this course, and you will have lots of opportunities to try out new skills and techniques and share your experience with other tutors.

This course will use Moodle as the learning management system and Adobe Connect software for synchronous activities (which enables the simultaneous delivery of voice, video and presentation documents to imitate a traditional tutorial environment).

The course will last for eight weeks with the course materials being made available to students for four extra weeks at the end of the course for revision, consolidation and reflection.

The study time of the course will be 35-56 hours to study the core content (5-8 hours per week for each of weeks 1-7) plus any additional time students spend reflecting on the course in weeks 7 and 8. Note that the course offers additional optional material during weeks 2-6 for those who have time for further study.

Introduction and learning outcomes: Each unit will start with a summary of the topics to be covered and will include a list of learning outcomes for the unit.Topics: Three to six topics will be explored in each unit. Topics will include an overview of the subject with a range of activities (some individual and some group) to explore the topic in more detail.Course study: The course discussion forums are open 24 hours per day during the course so you can access these and the course materials anytime. Much of the learning is done via the discussion boards where the tutor will post questions and you and the other students will support each other to provide solutions and answers.Adobe Connect synchronous tutorials: This course includes synchronous tutorials using Adobe Connect. You will not be required to purchase this software.Adobe Connect synchronous tutorial times: The only fixed times are the online synchronous tutorials using the Adobe Connect software where you will see and hear the course tutor and other students via webcam. Note that these tutorials are normally performed at a time which tries to accommodate all the various time zones of the students on the course. The tutor will try to vary the times throughout the course but you may have late or early sessions depending on your time zone. Later in the course you will also set up and run your own tutorials with other students on the course using this software and this can be done at a time to suit you. Click here for more information about the timing of the synchronous tutorials.Summary and reflections: Each unit will include a summary providing an overview of the key points and will also include a 'reflections' discussion forum to encourage participants to reflect on their experiences and what they have learnt so far.Further reading: Most units will conclude with a list of further reading.

There will be no formal assessment for this course.

In order to complete this course and receive a University of Oxford certificate of completion, you will need to actively take part in the group activities; complete the four tutor-marked assignments; give a presentation in one of the "Presenting and facilitating online" online tutorials held during unit 4 of the course; and participate in a minimum of two of the other online tutorials delivered during the course. You are expected to make at least one substantive posting to the majority of the discussion topics initiated by your tutor.

The course tutor will also be available during week 7 to answer any outstanding questions from students, but there will be no formal course activities during this week and week 8 is an additional non-tutored week and is for final student interactions, reflection and consolidation.

Disasterous Small College Self Employment - They Wanted A Set Of Resources

BTEC Business level 3 and 7

Another one lesson student English Language A level

Key stage 1 phonics and cursive handwritinf

Longer student doesnt cancel 24 hrs in front or doubleup lessons if late cancellation

So many resources made with such a small payment

There should be a more ethical way of treating tutors.

To add the resources to the TES shop,  mostly they are web-blogs and pocket or keep info collecting etc. Again it could compromise copywrite in three ways - on a different blog to permission given,  copyright handed to TES or downloads handed on via other shared info.

Phone sharing tethering all you can eat data when it would be better to tether to the pc.

Probs with students looking for a tutor with either an incorrect search ie Bus Studies when they need Computer Studies (undergrad fresher ESOL) and an external student mixing up course syllabus and examination for a different examination board where the exam course is now almost out of date (ie only one retake possible for an entire ALevel course)

Researching and making lesson plans for BTech Business Studies.

Also hoping the Derbyshire local but not online tutorin agency are recommending tutees again this Autumn.

Query ... Become own agency!?



From the * link it seems Pub Liab and other Insurances are a real potential problem.

The procedure to obtain approval involves the completion of a Self Emp Questionnaire by departmental staff. Finance and Business Affairs staff will inform the department after assessing the questionnaire whether gross payment is appropriate. If the matter needs to be referred to HMRC for a ruling the department will be advised. Please be aware that it can take some time for HMRC to respond, depending largely on the complexity of the case.

There are certain key indicators of self-employment that HMRC will normally look at. Self-employment is indicated where:

The individual is able to control not only what work must be done, but also how, where and when.The individual provides the major items of equipment.The individual has to correct unsatisfactory work in his/her own time and at his/her own expense.The individual is free to hire helpers.The individual is contractually obliged to or has the right to provide and pay a substitute.

It should be noted that although many factors are taken into account when looking at whether or not an individual can be classed as self employed, it is not sufficient to simply satisfy the factors listed above.
The individual has to establish to HMRC that they are in business on their own account. Unless there is evidence of financial risk the individual is unlikely to be treated as self employed.

2.7. This system of approval is necessary because the * Tax office insists that it is the nature of the work carried out by the individual and not the status which they have, or claim to have, which dictates whether or not they can be treated as self employed. If the tax office rule that the payment is taxable then * has no choice but to arrange payment through the payroll and incur additional costs of employers National Insurance. This applies irrespective of any letters produced by individuals claiming that they are registered as self-employed whether from other tax offices, firms of accountants or other professional advisers. * will not accept any letters from individuals as proof of self employment.

The following guidelines are based on previous tax office rulings:

any person providing services for mainstream activities such as teaching or lecturing is deemed to be an employee and payments must be routed through the payroll and the appropriate deductions (tax and national insurance) will be taken at source.any person providing temporary or casual technical, secretarial or clerical assistance is deemed to be an employee and payments must be routed through the payroll and the appropriate deductions (tax and national insurance) will be taken at source.  (QUERY ...TEMPs)

Any exceptions to the above must be approved by the * tax office before any invoices are passed for payment.

Requests from all persons who wish to be treated as self-employed will be considered when a fully completed questionnaire is submitted. It will still be necessary in some cases to inform the * tax office of decisions made within Finance and Business Affairs in order to obtain confirmation that they agree with * interpretation of the case. It is at the discretion of the Director of Financial Accounting, Finance and Business Affairs, whether or not a payment can be processed while the necessary information to approve self-employment is obtained. This will be viewed on a case by case basis and will largely depend on the nature of the work carried out and the amount to be paid to the individual.

2.9. Where a person is accepted by * as being self-employed, the following procedures will apply in order to make payment:

Issue official * Purchase Order to confirm the service required. * standard conditions will apply. In particular Departments must not agree to any other non standard payment conditions or penalty clauses.After service has been provided arrange for the individual to submit a formal business invoice, i.e. pre-numbered, preferably pre-printed, containing full business address, brief details of service provided, cross reference to * purchase order and amount due.It is normal practice that the invoice will show the payment due for the work done.The invoice should be processed using the * procedure, in the same way as any other supplier invoice. No Human Resources or Payroll forms should be completed in respect of those approved for self-employment.

-employed persons are responsible for their own public liability and indemnity insurance and are not covered by * policies.

There may be cases where a person has to be treated as an employee for tax purposes but does not otherwise fall into any of the standard * employment categories.

In such cases the procedure to be followed is:

Complete  Form * as and when payments need to be made.

Becoming a Resource and Diary Blog!

https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/improvements-to-destinations-of-key-stage-5-students-time-series

The educational author quest is ongoing

However, its important to pick the topic that will sell, two or three ideas are ongoing and the temptation to sell part of the concept as a resource for possible quick cash has to be ignored.

http://thecornerstoneforteachers.com/free-resources/edupreneurs/publishing-a-teaching-book

After all Quality Authoring a Companies Tech Support BSI 5750 manual was not a simple task ...


Quote from the weblink:-

"I think everyone has a book inside them. And every teacher I know has a teaching idea or perspective that deserves to be shared with the world."


Once completed however the resource shop on a teachers website may be more successful than the wrong contract


"Be sure to ask lots of questions about the royalty rate you will receive. There are some publishers (none that are listed above) that will pay teachers a very small flat rate for their book and then the company owns the content and never pays out another dime. You’d do far better selling your book as a PDF on TeachersPayTeachers or TeachersNotebook than taking a flat rate from a big publishing house. Don’t do it! You deserve to earn profits from your book every time it sells–and books in the education genre should continue to sell well for many years."

New Tutee Confusion

13.00pm strange set of messages from First Tutors and a potential tutee, emails sent.

Alevel Politics

Seen enough of the USA Pres. election debates now after two very late-early live programmes to conclude severe sex discrimination is a tactic to allow one candidate to not discuss party policies.

Twitter and all television programmes, bbc, sky, cnn, euronews however were in overdrive with no understanding of the diversionary tactic, giving credence to the content from the candidate and not the lack of policy details. Quite disturbing media-wise. Euronews did not add a panel of pollsters and further input, and just showed the debate.

The UN site had a very funny infographic on chauvanism tweeted hours before; retweeted qaawyrd and wollaton_nottm.

Sent out wiki info on previous election and govt scandals in the USofA and found a new website and twitter showing european country health service conparisons.

The next debate can be watched at a civilised time.

Theres sufficient info gained to discuss as Eng Lang, Lit, Media Studies, Politics, Gen Studies or Citizenship today should there be any Tutee enquiry.

Repetitive Strain and Food Intolerance, Allergy

Are simpler to manage when in the same regular work as a routine and plan plus the funds, salary or wage to buy such things as low chlorine bottled water and fruit juice as well as pay essential additional expenses eg vehicle or home upkeep arent compromised.

Hydrating properly is a must for rsi! First floor living means cold water stored in a tank as well as Cl and Sulphite, Fluoride problems and its just so important for the least circulation hassles if rsi has onset.

A steady, possible and planned work routine with routine food intake with no ingredient changes equals a life where rsi and food intolerance disappear as problematic factors of living.

It also means funds to pay for any heavy work.

How truly disabled or anaphylactic folk cope without possible work and career routines is unthinkable.

In the background

Is all the work an employer would employ other employees or facilities people to sort out.

After exam season theres alot to catchup on and lots of bureaucracy like tax returns, thinking about vat registration for potential courses.


Leisure and Tourism Resource

The Leisure and Tourism resource suite for a local amenity appears to be working well, evidenced by lots more activity and carparking, people and kids fun park use. Obviously the local council actually built the kids space.

Keeping up with info especially the Olympics is a tad tough on hands other committments and sleep!

Sussing how much to allow as retweets and links can take a while for replies etc. but it is value building and good practise in finding and getting to know what Leisure and Tourism in the E-WMids and SYorks region is all about Greenspace-wise.


Lots of careful planning

To create a complicated resource,  possibly a complete teaching programme and schedule for delivery to education organisations and individuals together with marketing input, plus update on the new specifications and consider online tuition, possibly with some local radio advertising if it's not too expensive - or maybe with a sponsor linked in, is a huge task for this Summer.

Meanwhile the First Tutors online link is working well but despite lots of enquiries there isn't a takeup over the Summer 'at home' weeks.

Perhaps for next year some holiday courses in community centres for catching up basics and keeping Literacy and Numeracy skills on track through the long summer break, but that concept also needs a careful look at nearby 'competition' from agencies and companies.  Centre activity and grants etc.

There are many options, some of which are constrained by my own rsi-carpal tunnel hassles from working typing and in administration for so many years.

Results day this week for 2016 students!

slow internet

Its all the small problems such as slow daytime internet, updating info, accounts, sending bureaucratic info - tax returns and the problems with their login system which has reverted not to 2012 with the change of login screen at gov.uk but back to the original email address around 2010!  Their phone help info just throws you out of the phone queue and it took a series of q and a sessions on online chat (the resident computer helpline? an individual who didnt know the computer had been reset to 2010?) to resolve login ... the Q is WHY have they reverted their computers to 2010?
