How to become a tutor?

Post by HannahD » Fri, 27 May 2016 10:16 am

I am British, living in Singapore with my husband with a Dependant's Pass. I am supply teaching at the moment but finding I cannot get enough work as can now only work in one school with the new government rules in place only allowing one Letter of Consent. I'm looking into Tutoring (I have a PGCE in Geography to teach up to A Level and could tutor any subject primary and lower secondary science/maths/english plus Geography up to A Level).

I was just wondering if anyone knew how to become a tutor as an expat on a dependants pass? What I could expect to make? I think I have to set myself up as having my own business but am not 100 percent sure and a lot of the guidance online assumes Singaporean PR. Unfortunately it looks like I can't supply teach and tutor at the same time due to government regulation.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you

You could join a tutoring centre, which would allow you to work on a LOC. Expect 3-5k per month.

But, hours are pretty anti-social (weekends and nights) and most seem to be run by locals so the working practices can be a little challenging.

Try the British Council, they have some sort of English tutoring service.
