Where you can tutor
During the coronavirus outbreak we recommend that lessons take place online. Almost all of our tutors and customers are doing this. Once things get back to normal, you can tutor in-person anywhere in the UK (although the majority of our face-to-face jobs are in the London area).

Why become a tutor with Titanium Tutors?
1: Generous tutor rates
We look to recruit the best tutors in London and the UK, and we think it's only fair that our tutoring pay rates should match the standard of high quality teaching we're looking for. There is a sliding pay scale based on qualifications and teaching experience (see Applicant Pack); as tutors gain more students and client feedback, there is the opportunity for them to move to higher rates.
2: Speedy payment
We know that private tutors, like any professionals, care deeply about being paid on time: who wouldn't? Yet some London tutoring agencies still pay monthly, or “whenever the client pays”, which makes it difficult for tutors to plan their finances. That's why we pay our tutors every week. Tutors submit a quick report after each lesson and receive payment no later than 7 calendar days later. We pay all of our tutors by the fast and simple medium of bank transfer. If the client has not paid yet, payment is made by way of interest free loan.
3: Our established client base
We're now in our ninth year, and we have an established client base and trusted brand. This means we have a regular stream of new private tutor jobs and are in a great position to match talented tutors with the right students. We take care of all advertising and promotion on our tutors' behalf, and our longer-standing tutors are offered the opportunity to be featured on our website, blog and brochures.
4: Helpful advice and support
Tutors can contact us at any time with queries or to discuss concerns. If tutors request it, we can arrange for them to observe other tutoring sessions for ideas and inspiration. We are a friendly and supportive bunch!
5: Admin made easy
Our online facilities allow tutors to submit lesson claims with ease, and to track their earnings. We invoice the clients and collect payment on behalf of the tutors. Tutors also review and apply for our teaching jobs through our online portal.
We do not insist on a minimum or maximum amount of teaching. We simply notify tutors when suitable tutoring jobs become available and they decide whether or not to accept them.
7: Special Opportunities
When office vacancies crop up on our Admin Team, we typically approach our tutors first, as they know the company best! The work is well paid and takes place in our trendy Camden office. And, of course, we like to socialise; we arrange regular informal events throughout the year for our tutors and staff — including our periodic ‘Beer and Cheer’ evenings, our annual summer ‘Ticnic’ (tutor picnic), not to mention our beloved Xmas Party! Our socials are a great opportunity to meet fellow tutors and share teaching stories.
