The National Tutoring Association promotes the advancement of tutoring while upholding the principles and practices of tutoring. Further the National Tutoring Association provides certification to tutors depending on their experience and, of course, education. Certification is available from basic tutoring to master of tutoring. Certification requires comprehensive documentation as well as providing for an all-inclusive background check.
Tutoring jobs can be found on one’s own in a freelance approach, thereby establishing your own business where you’ll work in a private fashion for your own negotiated work schedule and payment. If working for yourself becomes tiresome, there are special agencies who, for example, specialize in placing tutors for a semester. Granted working for oneself is very lucrative, however usually agencies will also handle the tutor’s marketing and accounting for their fee.
Tutors who have a specialty, be it math, science, or languages, have more opportunities to find tutoring jobs. If you currently do not have a specialty, look to your own knowledge base and build upon that specialty.
The training of adults is considered a specialty; for it takes a highly knowledgeable person with an engaging personality, who can keep adults interested, and more importantly keep them learning. Also adult tutoring means that you have to be exceedingly proficient in whatever subject you are going to teach. Examples of tutoring adults might be teaching for computer certification, teaching real estate closing techniques, or tax preparation etc. These examples alone may spark an idea within you for the perfect tutoring job that you might be qualified to fill.
The use of multimedia training techniques cannot be stressed too highly. Examples might be a tutor who can use both books as well as computers, to show the trainee in-job examples. Instruction of adults requires different techniques in order to take advantage of the adult’s cognitive as well as reflective judgment.
Also, do not overlook the need for specialized tutors who fit into high-paying training manager jobs. A training manager works with the director of the organization and its senior management to identify training priorities and develop as well as execute effective training plans. They also ensure that the organization’s high training standards, are not only maintained but that the training is up to date throughout that particular company.
The criteria for training manager jobs is often a bachelor's degree in human resources management or perhaps other education in a specialized field such as in hospitality environments, for example. Often, too, they will take into account an equivalent combination of experience and education.
In conclusion, there must be thousands of opportunities for those seeking tutoring jobs.
