So, I've recently been asked by a number of people about how to get into teaching or tutoring.
Both have different paths but I will tell you how, based on my experience as a UK based teacher and tutor.
things may be different for those who are international, so I apologise!
To become a teacher you will need:
A bachelors degree in any subject
You will either go to university and get a PGCE [Post graduate certificate of education] or you can join the Teach First programme where you start teaching after 6-8 weeks of training and learn on the job
Whereas to become a tutor there are no specific requirements, although most clients prefer you to have a degree in your chosen subject, some experience and a DBS [Criminal background check].
For those of you starting out, there are several websites you can sign up to, and you will eventually build up a client base from there and word of mouth.
I have taught 5 members of the same family because they enjoyed my teaching so much!
Some websites i know for you get started on!
teachaway.com (international students)
If anyone has any other websites - feel free to add them to here!
