    If you don't have a degree you should aim to tutor young kids for things like the 11+

    Yeah. I was thinking so.
    I can teach 16+ as I have much knowledge of Mathematics and Physics and I have also been to BMO, BPhO, BAAO, IJSO, CERN Internship and a lot other competitions but I won't because I don't think anyone will let me teach sixth form students as I am also a A Levels candidate.
    But I hope to teach GCSE students. I won't feel comfortable to teach 11+ kids. What would I teach them of Maths and sciences.

    Typically tutors are required to have the qualification a level above what they are tutoring. Since you don't have your A levels yet, you don't have the qualification above GCSE level.

    However if you're a great student and communicator you can make it work. How do you plan to find students though?

    Actually I was thinking of asking to my school teachers. Do you have any suggestions?

    You are likely to get only a few students doing that, though that may be all you want. However if you want more, you should ask teachers in other schools. Perhaps teachers in your current school would write a letter of recommendation for you to help with that.

    I tutored GCSE Maths bit during my A Levels and have continued to do it into my gap year. I was in a local community FB group and commented on a post about someone looking for a maths tutor, suddenly had a load of mums in my inbox asking if I could tutor their child haha. Obviously I explained I wasn't professional etc but nobody seems to mind.

    Great I love it No, Manchester. £10ph so very cheap but again, not a professional so can't expect high prices. But I reckon you could get maybe £15ph? Whatever you feel comfortable charging

    Oh. Awesome! One of my cousin lives in Manchester.
    Yeah, £10/h is cheap but we aren't professional. So can't demand so much.
    yes it's true that I expect more than 10.
    Actually I am from a poor family so I have to earn for my studies. I am a book lover. so I also need money for this.

    It was great to talk to you.

    Most agencies will require you to have a degree I'm afraid. If you design an email which emphasises that you are very serious about tutoring and list a lot of good reasons why they should give you a chance, then some might. It might be worth a shot.

    Bethnay90's suggestions are great. You need to figure out other ways to get exposure like using facebook groups as she suggests.

    For the pay rate, you could get around £15-20/hour in London as an unexperienced tutor with no degree. Of course if you can sell yourself really well and do a great job then you could convince people to pay you more, like £25-30. Depends how good a salesperson you are, and how well you can back up your sales pitch!

    Of course this all raises the question of why you don't get a normal job. Tutoring is very time-consuming just to get started in it, and there's a lot of luck involved.
