What we look for in a graduate

Private tutoring requires a diverse skills set, and below are some key attributes for making a success of it:
> strong interpersonal communication skills;
> patience and the ability to establish rapport with young people and their parents or carers;
> a strong academic background and interest in education;
> an imaginative approach to learning;
> research skills for keeping up-to-date with exam syllabi;
> independence and a certain entrepreneurial flair;
> flexibility and self-discipline required for freelance work (time keeping, organising appointments, reliability, record-keeping)

Graduates and undergraduates will find that private tuition pays well (£30/hour+) and can work well either as a flexible, part-time option, or a full-time freelance career. For further information, please see The Careers Group blog on private tuition.
