Over the past few years, parents finding tutors to help their children get by at school has grown exponentially. It is now suggested that 1 in 3 children in the UK have a tutor to support them with their academic studies. Because of this growth, it is expected that by 2020, tutoring will be a £123 billion-pound global business!
Clara James Franchisees always travel to the student; they use a range of resources that are tailor-made to the needs of that specific child.
Clara James Franchisees provide English and Maths tuition for children from reception to the end of GCSE. A lot of the children they work with have some form of specific learning difficulty (training will be given on working with a dyslexic or autistic child).
Clara James Tutors do not carry out a formal assessment of the child because they believe that if the first time the child meets the tutor they are given a test to carry out, it is unlikely they will work at the full potential. However, if the tutor/ franchisee talks to the family and they agree between themselves the areas in which the child needs/ wants to focus and this is used to observe and move forward. The child normally knows what they find hard.
Your diary is yours to set, but you must be prepared to do some tutoring on an evening or weekend.
There are two options available:
If you were to work a 30-hour week and earn £35/hour (depending on area), you could earn £1,050/ week (before expenses) which equates to £4,200/month. Although this is perfectly reasonable, you may choose to dedicate less hours than this to tutoring. It could also be that the demand for work may dictate that you take on tutors to work with you and lighten the load!
If this is the case, you would expect to pay the tutor £22/hour. If you are charging the parent £35/hour (dependent on area) you will make £13/hour that the tutor works (before expenses). Therefore, as an example, if you have 1 tutor working 15 hours a week for you, you will receive £195/ week before expenses (£780/month).
Tutors working 10 hours each a week would earn you £260/ week before expenses (£1,040/ month). Therefore, it is reasonable to expect that you could have low overheads and a reasonable income in a market where demand is proven to be getting greater, year on year.
