Calling all retired teachers! The perfect job for you

Are you a retired teacher looking for some flexible part-time work? Or perhaps you are planning your retirement from teaching but are not yet ready to throw the towel in completely. This blog explains why private tutoring may be the perfect job for you.

You are perfect for the job

As a highly experienced teacher, you have all the skills and knowledge needed to provide top-quality tuition. Few people advertising their services as a private tutor are qualified teachers and even fewer still have significant teaching experience. This puts you above the rest and means that you will be in high demand.

Excellent rates of pay

Being in high demand means that you can charge the top rates for your service. With Owl Tutors, who only accept qualified and experienced teachers, tutors can expect to earn a minimum of £50 an hour for home tuition and £40 per hour for online tuition. Whether you are looking to leave the classroom before retirement age or wishing to supplement your retirement income, tutoring offers a fair wage for your expertise.

Flexible hours to fit around you

Having just left the demanding world of teaching, it is time for you to enjoy some freedom. As a freelance tutor, you can work as frequently as you like and pick and choose the jobs that suit you. A significant percentage of tutor jobs with Owl Tutors are online tuition jobs, meaning you can work from the comfort of your own home.

Continue doing what you love

Whilst most teachers look forward to retiring from the heavy workload and day-to-day stresses of teaching life, many find they miss certain aspects of the job. Working as a tutor allows retired teachers to continue to use their expertise to shape minds and help young people to succeed, without the pressures and paperwork of classroom teaching.
