You get to make a difference
Tutoring, like teaching, gives you the opportunity to really make a difference to children’s lives. You may be the difference between them getting into the school, college or university of their dreams so you have the chance to make a real impact.
It looks great on your CV
It goes without saying that tutoring is a great role for those who are considering a career in education but it can also help with finding other jobs too. As a tutor, you’ll gain a number of highly transferable skills including communication, patience and listening skills - all of which make you look more employable.
You get to be your own boss
As a Smile Tutor, you get the opportunity to take charge of your own income and your working day. That means that you get to choose your charge rate and hours. Don’t feel like working on the weekend? Well, now you don’t have to!
Tutoring is totally flexible and works around you and your life which is why it’s an ideal job for graduates or parents, who are looking to do something meaningful while making a little bit of extra cash, as it fits around childcare and studies.
