I recently graduated with First in French & Spanish and will be doing a masters next year in Translation.
My plan is to do a PGCE after that so that I have both this and the masters which are highly desirable for teaching in HE (possibly a bit of FE too).
Alongside this, I would be doing specialized freelance translation work and some private tutoring too. That's the long term plan.
I would like to do some private tutoring this coming year to help me with living expenses during my masters. I worked throughout my undegrad. I currently have a rather rubbish job which pays me minimum wage, so once I can find something better paid I will be leaving there.
Private tutoring for KS2, GCSE and A level would pay far better (I already have a few friends who have expressed an interest) and I'd actually be able to use my languages.
I have experience in teaching (worked with A level students in the MFL department of FE college) and primary level in France and the UK. My recent job in the FE college (which I may be continuing with next year if they get the funding) did a DRB for me, so I have this which I can supply to parents. My colleagues at FE college and teachers/lecturers would provide references.
I will register with some agencies but where possible find my own work so that I don't loose out with the agency because of commission.
I would be under min tax allowance (but obviously would keep record all the same).
Is there anything else I should consider?
Been thinking about how much I would charge and thinking around the £15 per hour mark sounds reasonable (native speakers charge from £20-25. I'm not native, but very high level).
Have you done any of these?
