Whether you are fond of teaching or you are looking for an extra income source, there can be many reasons for you to choose to become a private tutor. The best part about being a private tutor is that you remain in charge of your own time. And you enjoy more freedom.
But for being a successful private tutor, below are listed 3 major tips to follow:
Keep your lesson plans ready:
Whatever resources you provide to your students, you will be held responsible for them. This means it is necessary for you to have workbooks relevant to the subject/s you teach. For instance, if you are teaching different levels and ages, it is important to have matching workbooks or worksheets as per their class. Start making your lesson plan in advance. This will help you cover the syllabus in the allotted time and you will be able to avoid any kind of delays. And in the smart era, it would be better to carry your gadgets along.
It is utmost important for you to be prepared properly before you start with tutoring. This might include a number of things like which subjects are you going to teach? How many students you will be teaching at a time?
Sometimes, it may be tempting to go for all subjects. However, to be successful it is essential for you to stay focussed, and specialise in a few or even just one subject. Ensure you know your subjects inside out. Regardless of the fact that you have a degree in your subject, you must go over everything again.
Don’t forget to promote:
So, when you think you are ready to go, and you are well-versed to know what you are going to teach, it is time to plan for promotion. Yes, promoting is as important as being able to do the job. There are many ways to do this. You can go for traditional ‘leaflet’ drop idea or count on a reliable tuition agency in Singapore.
So, with this you can start your career as a private tutor. Best wishes!
