Over the past few weeks many families have taken on the role of teacher to their own children. Some parents are pulling their hair out, others are loving every minute of it.
Maybe it’s the joy of spending time with your children or perhaps it’s something you were born to do. Maybe, it’s both?
Could now be the time to create a new future and do something that you find pride, satisfaction and fulfilment from?
Prior to the lockdown it was suggested that 1 in 3 children in the UK have a tutor to support them with their academic studies.
Parents are still looking for tutors. Very often it’s because they are struggling to support them with their education during this time.
However, more and more people are becoming tutors, so how could you make sure that you stand out in an already over-crowded market?
“It’s not what we do, it’s the way that we do it”
And now Clara James have changed how they do things!
Not everything, they still firmly believe that we learn best when we are enjoying ourselves. Learning needs to be varied and tailor made to the individual learning style, needs and interests of the person you are supporting. Everything that has been learned and experienced over the past 20 years has reinforced that belief.
But whereas before the lockdown, every lesson that was carried out involved franchisees travelling to the child’s home. Now, franchisees are carrying out online lessons as well.
The games have been adapted and with some imagination, there is no reason why Clara James can’t still offer a variety of tailormade resources rather than a one style suits all approach.
Prior to the lock down Clara James took pride in the fact that they always travel to the student. However, things have changed.
As a franchisee you will now able to offer two levels of support. Online lessons and (once we come out of lockdown) lessons in the student’s home.
A range of resources are still used that are tailor-made to the needs of that specific child. Every lesson is still focused on providing the absolute best support possible.
That is just part of the reason the Clara James Franchise stands out.
The Clara James Tutoring Business 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 so you will be given full training on working with a dyslexic or autistic child.
We don’t carry out a formal assessment of the child because we 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. Instead, the tutor/ franchisee talks to the family and they agree between themselves the areas in which the child needs/ wants to focus. 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 four 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.
Working online you will accrue fewer expenses. Therefore, if you were to work a 30-hour week online and earn £25/hour (depending on area), you could earn £750/ week (before expenses) which equates to £3000/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 £18/hour. If you are charging the parent £25/hour (dependent on area) you will make £7/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 £105/ week before expenses (£420/month).
