    I've been thinking about doing private tutoring for ks2 ks3 and GCSE maths and science, I'm currently doing my AS levels in those subjects but I'm concerned that it'll be pointless because people won't hire me due to my lack of experience or like qualifications. What do you guys think. Is it a waste of time?
    I feel like I would be quite good at tutoring because I help out in science classes in my school as a sort of teaching assistant and run revision sessions for GCSE students. Also is there much demand for ks3 and ks2 tutoring ? Finally if anyone has any tips or is a tutor themselves any pointers would super amazing 😊🎉 thank you!!!

    Try doing tutoring sessions for the children of relatives, they'll be more likely to accept your offer to tutor and after that you can try and work your way up with that experience.

    Hi Charlotte,

    I'm afraid that you would need to be over 18 to join our site to advertise as a tutor, but we do have an advice page for those just starting out that you may find helpful:

    http://www.thetutorpages.com/private-tutor-advice

    You will find advice on personal safety, legal questions, getting paid and ethical tutoring.

    In general there is greater demand for GCSE and A-level tutoring, but there are still many families looking for KS3 or KS2 help. As Qinge says, your best bet is probably to start with family and friends to get a bit of experience and see if it works for you.

    Good luck!

    Emma
