Are you interested in joining our team to be self-employed and to run your own tutoring business?
This is the opportunity to have your own tutoring business in your region as an Associate of Home-School Tutoring UK.
There are some counties and regions in England, Wales and Scotland which do not yet have a Home-School Tutoring Area Advisor. We often receive requests for tuition in these areas but are currently unable to help the parents and students who contact us here.
Would you be interested in owning and running your own tutoring business in one of these areas? If you would like to join us as an Associate Business of Home-School Tutoring UK, details of our current opportunities are below.
What do we look for in our Associate Business owners?
To become a Home-School Tutoring Business Owner – and, as such, the Area Advisor for your region – you should ideally have a background in education and business or educational management, and want to run your own self-employed business. We look for people who have a passion for education , who understand the need for learning skills and who are vibrant, progressive and skilled.
You would need to be able to afford an initial fee to join us as an Associate and Area Advisor and there is a monthly Licence Fee. A business like this can take some time to build but every current Area Advisor will assure you that in time, the income steadily increases and they are wonderful, fulfilling businesses to run and should be viewed for the longer term, as your circumstances allow. We aim to make these businesses as affordable as possible for suitable people to join us.
We particularly need you to agree with our ethical basis of business ; we want to make a difference in people’s lives through encouragement and suitable tutoring support.
- Do you have teaching / tutoring and educational management experience?
- Do you have any business experience, including in marketing?
- Do you have proficient computer and online skills, ideally with experience of social media?
- Are you up to date with current educational provisions and support and will continue to research?
- Do you have the knowledge, determination and leadership qualities to encourage your team of tutors to deliver tutoring of a high educational standard?
- Do you have the initiative to market your business to schools, colleges and the general public in your region?
- Are you passionate about helping pupils achieve their best?
- Are you a skilled communicator and motivator?
- Do you have good organisational skills?
- Will you show genuine empathy and understanding of people’s learning needs ?
If this sounds like you and your preferred area is available, we’d love to hear from you!
Please note: this is an opportunity to start up a Home-School Tutoring business in a new region, which you would own and run under our umbrella, rather than a paid position. We are not a franchise; each business is an Associate Business of Home-School Tutoring and there is freedom to develop your business with your own initiatives and specific educational interests. We give you help and support; we provide the framework that you need and advice and encouragement. We are more effective and efficient together.
What’s involved with running a Home-School Tutoring area business?
Owning and running your own home tuition business with Home-School Tutoring can be hugely rewarding and fulfilling. On a daily basis, you will be in contact with parents, students, adult learners, schools and colleges, and can make a great difference to the lives of many pupils.
Each area owner is committed to the aim of providing an educational tutoring service of high quality. As a Home-School Tutoring Business and Area Advisor, you will be responsible for registering suitable qualified teachers and tutors in your region for all subjects and levels. Of course, if you are qualified to teach, you may like to tutor students as well.
Marketing your area locally to generate enquiries will also be your responsibility, along with responding to enquiries and matching new clients with tutors from your register and overseeing their tutoring experience.
Who does Home-School Tutoring support?
Our educational tutoring service is offered to:
- pupils who attend school or college but who need additional support and tutoring help;
- schools (state and private) and colleges who need tutors to support individuals or groups within the school, college or organisation;
- home-schooled pupils.
We also provide tuition in a wide range of non-curricular subjects to students of all ages, including adult learners.
Which areas are still available?
If you enter your postcode in our search box on our home page and receive a message apologising for not covering that area, there is an opportunity for you to make that area your own!
The areas we are actively seeking new licensees for include:
- Kent ( Medway Area) Kent ( Canterbury Area)
- London Twickenham area
- Surrey ( North Surrey inc. Kingston on Thames region)
Further opportunities may also be available in vacant areas of the UK on the retirement of a few of our current Advisors in the next year or so.
Confidence in Home-School Tutoring
People considering hiring a tutor (including parents, students, schools and organisations) seek reputable agencies with recommendations and a supply of tutors they know they can trust. People need to feel confident about the ethics, standards and practices of a tuition agency before they make contact.
Home-School Tutoring has built a strong reputation among pupils, parents and educators since it was established over 30 years ago.
Key to our success is our personal approach and our rigorous registration procedure. We listen to what is needed and ensure all our tutors are DBS checked with strong references, and are suitably qualified to deliver effective and engaging tuition.
We are corporate members of The Tutor’s Association and all our areas support their aims of providing tutors, families, schools, and the general public with a responsible and reassuring professional tutoring service.
Join us while you can!
Our longest established business areas have now grown into successful and fulfilling local businesses for their owners, and additional staff members have been required to further facilitate their growth.
As most of our Home-School Tutoring business owners stay with us for many years, your area is unlikely to become vacant in the immediate future if it is already taken. However, please still contact us if your area is taken as there is a possibility that one of our business owners may be considering selling or dividing their area.
Already own a tutoring business in one of our vacant areas?
If you already run a tutoring business in an area we don’t yet cover and would like to consider becoming a Home-School Tutoring Associate, please contact Margaret Sweetland at the main HST UK office by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how to become an Associate Tutoring Business for that area.
What are the costs of running a tutoring business with Home-School Tutoring?
