This vacancy has now expired.

Job description

Teaching Personnel are committed to providing support to students across different year groups and specialisms, whether this be Year 7 Catch-Up, supporting a Looked After Child with their learning, raising attainment levels for disadvantaged students, or delivering valuable revision support prior to GCSE or A Level Exams across schools in the Basildon, South Essex, area. 

We have recently had an increase in demand for English tutors and are currently looking to find tutors who share the same ethos as us and our schools to help raise attainment and close the gap between high and low achievers. The majority of tuition takes place on a 1:1 basis, however for some schools where this is not feasible, you may also be required to tutor in small groups. All tuition is completed on an hourly basis and you will have full support from the school who are usually happy to share resources and learning materials and well as proving you with background on the students you teach to ensure you are able to tailor you sessions accordingly.

It is likely that you will work closely to support looked after children, children who have had disruption in their education or may have SEN.

The ideal English tutor will:

  • Have experience teaching English to students aged 11-16, including GCSE Level 
  • Be prepared to tutor in a range of learning environments; school, the home, local library etc
  • Be able to travel in and around the Basildon and South Essex area
  • Have expert knowledge of the curriculum for English and be prepared to teach up to GCSE level across multiple exam boards
  • Be empathetic, yet motivating and show a high level of commitment to your students
