Working as a personal tutor is a simple and effective way to earn money while studying. By becoming a private tutor, you’ll be able to set your own rates and hours. You’ll have a flexible job that’ll fit around your programme and help you earn some extra money.  

To work as a private tutor through a platform such as Superprof, there are currently no standard qualifications needed, so anyone who has good knowledge in a specialist subject can teach. 

Need further convincing? Read on to discover four benefits of becoming a personal tutor.  

Share your knowledge  

By working as a Superprof private tutor while studying, you can earn money by teaching a subject you’re passionate about. You will be joining a community of more than seven million teachers, coaches, mentors and artists around the world.  

If you’re considering becoming a private tutor, ask yourself why a potential client might choose you over another tutor. What makes your knowledge, lessons and experience exceptional? What differentiates you from other tutors?  

For many business school students, this may be the business knowledge and skills they have learnt while studying for an MBA, combined with experience working in industry.  

Inspire others around the world 

When you become a private tutor with Superprof you’ll have the opportunity to teach, inspire and connect with students from around the world. A truly global platform, Superprof is used by more than 35,000 students across 38 countries who are looking to learn and upgrade their skills. 

The platform offers the opportunity to teach more than 1,000 subjects across dozens of categories, from sports, to academia, to music. As long as you have a skill, enthusiasm and the ability to teach your topic, you can teach any topic that you are passionate about.  

When you create your profile, you will be asked to give a short description of your experience. This will give you the chance to explain why you’re teaching this particular subject and what sets you apart from other tutors. 

Register for free and set your own rates 

Registering and setting up your profile couldn’t be easier. Publishing your tutoring advert on Superprof is completely free and only takes 10 minutes. You can post your advert in as many subjects as you are willing to teach. 

Another benefit? You can decide your rates, based on your experience and expertise. Superprof takes no commission, so the rate in your advert is the rate you will receive.  

Once your teaching advert has been published, students can contact you with tutoring requests. It is up to you to decide who you teach and Superprof will support you throughout the process. 

Work online and be your own boss  

If you like the idea of a part-time job you can do entirely online while studying, a private tutoring job allows you to set your schedule, fees and teaching methodology – and you are free to organise your classes however suits you.  

There is also the option to teach in-person if you would prefer this, whether this is from your own home, the student’s workplace or from a public place, like a library or a coffee shop. 

Private tutoring is a job that will fit around your life, making it the ideal part-time job for any business school student.
