The Online Tutor’s Toolkit - Book Cover


This book contains everything you need to know to get started as an online tutor. It covers the essentials of tutoring, choosing your tech and software, managing homework, and getting set up alongside detailed guidance focusing on each level of tuition. With techniques developed through research and first-hand experience, the author explains exactly how to turn existing subject knowledge into effective tutoring for students of all ages in a variety of subjects.

Divided into two parts, the first answers the logistical questions facing every new tutor such as: what equipment do I need? Where can I apply? How much should I charge? The second half focuses on how to tutor different age groups effectively and subject-specific areas including English, Maths, and Science, as well as the author’s tried-and-tested ‘5 step’ process for choosing a subject, assessing a student, and planning their first lessons. There is also information on how to support students writing personal statements and applying to university, as well as teaching English as a Second Language.

Alongside tailored, up-to-date information on available software, hardware, exam specifications, and the online tutoring marketplace, the book contains a 10-week timetable of adaptable lesson plans so new tutors can get started immediately. Finally, there are two additional downloadable chapters which expand on less common subjects and another which includes a digital download of every resource from the book.

With suggestions for resources, homework, and timings to support you at every stage, this is an essential read for anyone wanting to succeed as an online tutor.
