    Hey guys,

    I'm looking to tutor children in maths or any science up to GCSE level. I'm in year 12 though so does anyone know how I can get a tutoring job. Most of the tutor advertising websites need me to be 18 or have a bachelor's degree. What's the best way to get in contact with people. And what rate do you think I should charge.

    Thanks

    Advert on the local noticeboard - often the window of a Post Office will display adverts (although there might be a small fee) and big supermarkets often do too.

    Speak to your parents and see if they have any friends with children - or maybe your own friends have younger siblings - and then these people can mention it to their friends and spread the message by word of mouth.

    Although being under 18 you cannot advertise on our website, I would strongly advise that you read our advice page before starting out. You'll avoid the common pitfalls if you do:

    I tutor my 8 year old neighbour and I am 17 nearly 18. They asked me if I would be willing and I said yes. Start by looking locally is what I am getting at. Post on Facebook sites, social media, in the newsagents window, anywhere that a parent or a student might see! Now that I tutor the little girl, some other parents have mentioned how if they need a babysitter/tutor in the future they will remember me. Also, if you do go into tutoring, make sure you prepare and take a folder of things that you can do with the student, just in case they have no school homework or a problem they need to solve. I also always take a fun task and a quiz, flashcards and a multiplication colouring sheet. Good luck!

    It's going to be difficult to have any credibility as a Year 12 tutor - particularly because it's the parents you'd need to convince, given that they're paying for it. I wish you luck, but I think you're not going to get much work out of it
