Hey, basically I'm a student doing maths at Warwick and over Christmas holidays I managed to get work in Tesco (my employer before uni) but they've just told me they can't employ me over Easter for whatever reason.
As I'm only home for a month, it is quite difficult to find such short term employment, so I thought I would try tutoring, as a few people at uni mentioned they had done it. My question is, how do I go about getting tutees? I have posted a facebook status, but I don't have many friends still in school, let alone doing maths. If there is anyone else out there who has done tutoring before, how do you find people to tutor?

Anyone with any sense employs tutors who are
A) qualified teachers
B) Police cleared.

It might be worth putting an advert on Gumtree. I know a few people did it and got at least 1 client. I doubt you'll get loads but something is better than nothing.
Otherwise maybe print posters or ask friends and family to help you get clients?
I'm looking to tutor as well actually so I think I'll stalk this thread a bit

Listing on tutor websites would be one way, and apart from getting work from people you know that would be the main way. List with a sales pitch on tutor hiring websites and hopefully you'll find some around you, and from then on you can use a dual website and word of mouth approach.
Edit: I'd also envisage advertising that you tutor in your signature or linking in your signature on student forums such as these could be fruitful. I'm sure there are a decent amount of students who would welcome extra tutoring in GCSEs/A Levels and either have the means themselves or can convince a parent for the money,Last edited by AndroidLight; 26-03-2011 at 18:16.
