Why Students Should Consider Tutoring

If you’re confident, sociable and have a wide range of skills then tutoring may be a good job for you. I am a college student and began tutoring around a year ago. I currently tutor two primary school children in Spanish and English. Throughout this time, I have learnt many valuable skills including: communication, interpersonal skills and professionalism. I would recommend tutoring as a part time job for many reasons as it has helped me to develop in so many ways.

A major benefit of tutoring as a student is that it is a very flexible job. Each tutoring session can last between 30 minutes to 2 hours meaning that it can be easily fit into busy schedules. As the sessions are arranged between you and your client, you can ensure that the sessions will be in a time to suit you. Not to mention, tutoring usually pays a higher hourly rate.

Tutoring is a very academic profession, unlike most part time jobs, such as waitressing or bar work. This can set students apart from their peers as it shows that they are educationally driven and will have highly developed communication and interpersonal skills. As a result, your CV will be much stronger and you will have more to talk about during job interviews.

The profession offers a lot of academic and emotional fulfillment. It is very rewarding as you really are helping to make a difference to someone’s life. Therefore, you will get appreciation and satisfaction from working within the role. As the job is quite academic, you will not feel that your skills are being wasted and you will continue to build on these skills during your time doing the job. It’s a winning situation for everyone.
