University Diploma In Private Tutoring.

Click to Enlarge

Having an academic qualification can be helpful when it comes to expanding your business and getting you that well-deserved recognition, even if you are already tutoring. The Tutors’ Association is proud to recognise and endorse The Diploma in Private Tutoring from the University of Worcester, which provides you with evidence that you met our Tutor Standards. This in turn helps provide the basis for a portfolio to show tutees and their guardians.

"Private and academic tutoring is increasingly in demand especially in a shifting educational landscape.

More and more parents are considering this option to help their children due to large class sizes at school, or when their children are not performing to their full ability.

Private tutoring is an excellent, flexible way to make some extra money to supplement your income and it also enhances your CV if you are looking for permanent work. It can also be very rewarding, as you will have enthusiastic students who really want to improve their performance in your subject."
