What do our tutors say about us?

Henrietta Nagy, Business and Entrepreneurship Tutor, Oxford

What did you like about our company culture? Flexibility and trust. I appreciated being able to craft my syllabus and delivering it using my expertise and creativity. You provided some guidance to the teaching process, however I had 'ownership' over how I was delivering it. You as a company have great initiatives to bring tutors together and provide networking opportunities.

ONLINE SUBJECT TUTOR FOR 16-17 YEARS OLD

We offer two different types of subject tutor role for our online courses: content creation and course delivery. You may apply for one or both of these. 

Content creation may involve writing and sourcing articles, creating quizzes and filming short videos. Course delivery will include leading small group webinars, tutoring students 2:1 and providing individualised feedback to students.

You will be provided with an online teaching framework which shapes the course but will also allow you the flexibility to mould the course based on your expertise.

Content creation takes place before the start of the course, while course delivery involves around 8-10 contact hours across the two weeks of the online course.

We offer competitive pay and will offer comprehensive guidance and training on both roles. No previous online teaching experience required.
