Tutoring with OxbridgeHumanities/OxbridgeSciences, minimum 500GBP

We are a small, specialised tutoring group run exclusively by current and former Oxbridge students to increase access to the sciences/humanities to all passionate and enthusiastic students, regardless of their background, both within the UK and internationally.

We are looking for tutors from Emma to work with our team over the next few months.

Everyone on our team has, and continues to, tutor numerous enthusiastic young adults with a real passion for their subjects and with an understandable desire to make it to Oxbridge. All our tutors find the work enjoyable and challenging, as well as a welcome boost to the bank balance at the end of term!

The well-being of the tutors of is hugely important, as we have all faced the pressures of prelims and finals. We are therefore committed to ensuring that all our tutors are supported in their own degrees, making arrangements for particularly busy weeks and exams to ensure their studies are not affected by their work with their tutee.

As part of our tutoring programme we offer one on one tuition with a private tutor and we are looking for enthusiastic tutors, current or former Oxbridge students, ideally with some tutoring experience, who would be interested in working with us.

As a specialised tutoring group focused entirely on Oxbridge we do interview all our tutors to ensure they meet our standards, but we believe than anyone with a passion for their subject and a willingness to teach will meet our criteria. In return we pay our tutors well; we pay on average 500 pounds for 12 hours tuition over a 3 month period.

Tutoring is completely flexible and arranged by the tutor and their tutee depending on their busy schedules. Some tutors will also be required to tutor our international students over Skype, and they will be able to do this from home at a time of their choosing.

Later on in the year there will be opportunities for our most enthusiastic tutors to apply take up positions of responsibility within the company on a part and full-time basis in marketing, sales and operations.

If you are interested in working with our team please do email us at info@oxbridgehumanities.com or info@oxbridgesciences.com
