The process

Register

If you are interested in working with TI, the first step is to register in our database - this should only take about 15 minutes.

There are easy-to-use pages for

  • Personal Information
  • Contact Details
  • Teaching Experience
  • Subjects
  • etc.

You can register without applying for a job.

Apply

Once you are registered, you are welcome to apply for specific jobs that you're qualified for.

The application process requires answers to some job-specific questions, and you may also choose to update your CV.

Only apply for a job that you are qualified for. You will not do yourself any favours by applying for jobs where your skills and experience do not match the specification.

References

Applicants who look promising will be asked to provide references.

We will need full contact details for three referees:

  • current employer
  • previous employer
  • and a character reference

We always recommend that applicants contact their referees in advance. This is simply good manners, but it also helps to ensure a more prompt response.

Meeting

Suitable candidates will be asked to attend a meeting with TI.

These usually take place in London, but are sometimes arranged in other locations.

We ask you to bring along various documents: driving licence, passport, originals of your academic/teaching qualifications.

Based on these meetings we draw up a shortlist of preferred candidates and discuss them with the client.

Please note that TI cannot reimburse expenses for this preliminary meeting.

Interview

Generally, two candidates are put forward for interview with the client.

Interviews may take place anywhere, though typically they're at the client's home. Sometimes, for convenience, they may be arranged at a hotel in London.

Interviewees will meet the children and will be fully apprised of all circumstances. The client will pay travel expenses.

Selected candidates are subject to background screening. This is carried out by an external international security firm.

FAQ

Are the salaries quoted on job adverts how much the tutor will actually be paid? Or does your % fee come from this amount?
The salaries quoted are the amounts you will actually be paid.
Once I have had my first interview/meeting with Tutors International would I then be eligible to be presented for interview for any client? Or would each application for a different tutoring role incorporate two interviews?
It depends on the nature of the role. When you apply for a position, and if we decide to call you to a preliminary interview, one of the things we discuss is the specifics of the position. We also ask you to agree to our Terms and sign what we call the Tutor Agreement which sets out the way that we will take your application forward. At this time you will also be asked to sign the Specification to say that you agree to the job description. If you later apply for another position we do not need to sign off anything else apart from the new Specification for that position, and it may be that we can discuss the role by phone rather than in person. Some jobs, though, are best discussed face to face.
We wish to apply for an advertised position as a couple job-sharing. We have both completed our registration online. Should we fill out one application together or two individually?
Please fill out two registrations and applications, one for each of you. In the summary sections please each mention that your application is joint with the other.
