There are many benefits to becoming a tutor. In this blog, we will list the benefits and explain why you should tutor for us at Equal Education Partners.

What is Tutoring

Tutoring is the process of an educator providing instruction to either individual students or a group of students in a specific subject. Tutoring can take place in a variety of locations from classrooms to online and can be provided by teachers, peers, or professional tutors.

The aim of tutoring is to aid learners in improving their skills in a particular subject. While traditionally tutoring has been seen as an effective way to provide additional support to learners who are struggling or falling behind in a particular academic area or subject, it can also be highly effective for students who want to excel and achieve a higher level of understanding within a subject.

The Benefits to becoming a Tutor at Equal Education Partners

Tutoring is a career path that has several fantastic, unique benefits that you will not find in other jobs within the education sector.


Tutoring allows you to work around other commitments such as studying or family. The majority of our tutoring all takes places online which allows you to manage your time more effectively.

While we are mainly an online tuition provider, if school request face-to-face tutoring then we are happy to deliver this service as well. 

Professional Development

Tutoring can help you to develop your teaching skills and communication methods by working with students individually or in small groups. You will also develop a deeper understanding of the subject you are tutoring the learner on and learn to adapt your teaching style based on how much support each learner needs. At Equal we also offer free professional development opportunities and courses for our staff!

Networking Opportunities

Tutoring allows you the opportunity to work in different schools and colleges and to meet students from diverse backgrounds. This can lead to valuable networking opportunities and allow you to develop more professional connections for both learners and schools or colleges who are looking for tutors.

Personal Satisfaction

Tutoring can have a massive positive impact on the learners whose lives you help shape. As a tutor, you will get a lot of personal satisfaction from your work by helping learners improve their grades and build their confidence. 


If you tutor for an organisation like Equal Education Partners, a lot of the administrative tasks are taken care of, and you can focus on improving the lives of the students you tutor. From the start of the 2022/2023 academic year tutor regulations changed, however; at our tutors have always been contracted through Equal Education Partners and are employed on the PAYE system. 

Our tutoring team will also be there to support you in every step of your journey.
