Are you interested in joining our team to be self-employed and to run your own tutoring business as one of our Area Associates and Advisors?
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 from those regions. ( Search for your postcode/ town in the search box above and see if your area is covered or not).
What do we look for in our Associate Business owners?
We look for qualified, experienced teachers who have a passion for education , who want a different life -style after the classroom, who understand the need for learning skills and who are vibrant, progressive and skilled.
There is an Initial Fee to join the business and be granted an Area, and then a regular monthly Fee thereafter. We do however, aim to make these businesses as affordable as possible for suitable people to join us.

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 as an association of like-minded tutoring business owners, each using the same website and trademark and believing in the same standards of service.
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.
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 and bespoke learning packages to businesses.

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 by our founder Margaret Sweetland.
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 Tutors’ 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.
Highlights from our Home-School Tutoring UK Business Building Conference, Summer 2019.
This conference was a gathering of Home-School Tutoring Area Advisors (associate business owners) from across the UK, led by Home-School Tutoring UK.
Join us as an Area Advisor 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.
Your interest is very welcome and if you would like more information please contact Annalise Price-Thomas at the main HST UK office initially by email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please tell us where you live ( your town/postcode) and please give us a brief resume about yourself, outlining your background and experience and the reasons why you think this could be suitable for you. This will be just an initial enquiry or course and we can then discuss the possibility together and I can tell you more with no obligation and certainly no pressure.
Perhaps you already own a tutoring business in one of our vacant areas?
If you already run a small self-employed tutoring business in an area that we don’t yet cover and you think this could be a suitable opportunity for you too, to link in with your current business, then please get in touch. We don’t need to be in competition with each other; why not join together and help each other?
What are the costs of running a tutoring business with Home-School Tutoring?
Home-School Tutoring offers an affordable route to business, as well as a quick start up with support. We will be pleased to explain more.
I look forward to hearing from you!
