Why work with us?
Online Study Guru was forged from dissatisfaction with the current education system towards pupils and teachers. We believe teachers are the key to success and that students from all backgrounds and areas should be able to have access to the best teachers.
Teachers have had to learn the psychology of learning and have years of experience helping hundreds of students therefore they are better placed to provide tuition to enhance progress as opposed to university graduates or professionals who have knoweldge of the subject but not the techniques to guide students to learn and embed that knowledge to effectively retrieve the relevant knoweldge to apply in an examination situation to achieve top marks.
It is for this reason that we believe that qualified and experienced teachers with examining experience provide the highest quality of tuition and are able to direct learning as opposed to just supporting learning like many tuition agencies and websites offering undergraduates, students, retired academics and others as tutors do.
We are looking for enthusiastic, experienced specialists with a love for teaching & helping students make progress, matched with a love for their subject evidenced through examining experience.
For each class you will be expected to teach 3 live lessons through an online platform and provide feedback on weekly or fortnightly set assessments for each student, deliver a 2 hour Q & A workshop tutorial every fortnight and be available to answer student queries by email or in the course forum.
If successful, you will be contracted to work with us on a self-employed basis, which means you will need to submit a tax self assessment each year, in the same way as you would do as an examiner. It also means that you can claim back expenses and receive a deduction of tax for ancillary costs related to this contract such as the cost of IT equipment.
The average rate of pay is £40ph but can be higher depending on whether you want to take on additional responsibilities such as overseeing the subject area. This means that you can earn £160pw for each class you deliver.
Payment is made at the end of every half term in lieu, the pay dates for academic year 2020/2021 are:
16/10 (7 weeks) £1120 per class
15/12 (6 weeks) £960 per class
12/2 (6 weeks) £960 per class
1/4 (5 weeks) £800 per class
28/5 (6 weeks) £960 per class
2/7 (4 weeks) £640 per class
There is no limit to the number of classes you wish to take, and there is the opportunity to increase your earnings further by making yourself available for 1-1 support starting at £40ph.
